The difference is that one of them is a 64-bit executable and the other is a 32-bit executable. In most cases, this difference will not matter much. However, here are a two cases where it will:

  1. Your operating system is 32-bit: In this case you will need to use the 32-bit version.
  2. You are linking to a shared library (.dll): Your version of GAUSS must be the same bit size as the .dll that you are linking to.
