You should install ActivePerl 5.12. PPD files for 5.14 are not yet

You can stay with 64 bit perl if you do not need to support AuthBy ACE
or DIGIPASS. The ppm files for ACE and DIGIPASS contain binary
components for which 64bit versions are not available.

Other than that the choice between 32bit or 64bit perl for running
Radiator does not matter much.

I think the benefit of Radiator running with both is the flexibility of
not being limited to either version in case there is some other
applications that requires a 32bit or 64bit version.
