In simplest terms, a 16 bit OS uses 16bit address pointers, a 32-bit one uses 32-bit, and a 64-bit one uses 64-bit pointers. This affects the available address space.

If you can't install a C compiler in 64-bit Windows then I suspect that it is a very old version of Turbo C. You would be better off using something more modern, designed to run on Windows, such as Microsoft Visual C++ Express.
