I note that WOW supports PAE, which is good to see! For those who don't know, WOW is Windows On Windows, and is how Windows runs 32bit code on a 64bit processor when it's running in 64bit native mode.

PAE is Physical Address Extensions, and allows 32bit programs to access more than 4GB of memory. 4GB is normally the limit that a 32bit program can handle, whereas a 64bit program can handle far far more! This stops problems when 32bit programs want to talk to 64bit programs.
