To be honest, there are only two options.

1. Go to the sierra online website and see if you can get a 64 bit version of the game

2. Get an entirely new OS of windows (a 32 bit version) and then try installing

SOURCE: I can't install my Creepnight

The Windows 7 should automatically convert compatibility for software, but to force compatibility manually:

1. Right-click the installer, and go it's properties (this is the last option in the drop-down list).
2. Click the compatibility tab
3. Check the compatibility mode box and select the option from the list that matches the operating system you know the game last worked on.
4. Apply the changes, press OK, and re-run the installer.

Officially MS says it's not support, and Epson does not have an updated driver. Sorry.
If I'm running a 64-bit version of Windows, do I need 64-bit drivers for my devices?

Yes, all hardware devices need 64-bit drivers to work on a 64-bit version of Windows. Drivers designed for 32-bit versions of Windows won't work on computers running 64-bit versions of Windows.

Description: This file contains the Epson Stylus NX230 Printer Driver v6.91. The Epson Status Monitor 3 is incorporated into this driver.

Compatible Systems: Windows 7 32-bit, Windows Vista 32-bit, Windows XP 32-bit

I need help on installing logitech quickcam v-ugb35 with windows 7 Ult


If your windows 7 system is set up as 32 bit instead of 64, that's why it doesn't work. according to the logitech website that camera will only work with windows 7 in 64 bit mode...otherwise it won't.

I own a Dazzle DVC170 and i lost the studio disc that come with it. I want to run my dazzel on my windows 7 laptop and use camtasia to edit it. But it says it is not compatible with this 64-bit versi


You won't be able to run it then. It is like trying to run a petrol engine on diesel- it won't work. The software has not been written for Win 7 or, from what I can see on the website, a 64 bit Operating System. Sorry.

Windows 7 will not recognise vdr-m70 dvd camcorder


Panasonic supplied software for the VDR-M70 for Windows 98 through XP on the CD. Due to changes in the OS over time, the installer can't run under Windows 7. Panasonic has not updated the drivers for Windows 7 and Microsoft indicates that it is not compatible with any version of Windows 7.

There are work-arounds depending on your version of Windows 7. If you have the 32-bit OS, try using the compatibility mode. To find out which version of Win7 that you have, click Start > Control Panel > System and Security > System. If the name of the OS ends with x64, then you have the 64-bit version of the software. Otherwise, you have the 32-bit version.

For the compatibility mode, right click on the installer on the CD (browse Computer). Choose Properties and then click on the Compatibility tab. Select Always Run this program as and an older version of Windows (XP). Apply and Save your changes. Then right click again on the installer and choose Run as Administrator.

This may not work (and won't work for the 64-bit Windows 7). If it doesn't work, you need a machine with an older version of Windows. This can be a second computer, a dual boot computer or a virtual computer (if your hardware supports virtual computing). For most options, you will need a licensed copy of the older version of Windows.

If you have Windows 7 Pro or Ultimate or upgrade to one of them, you can have a virtual version of XP for free. Download and install Virtual PC and XP mode from Microsoft in order. Then install the software for the camcorder in XP mode as if it were your only computer. (Of course this doesn't help if your hardware doesn't support the Virtual PC.) Other virtual computer programs are VMWare and Parallels.

Note: you can not directly share files or hardware between the Win7 and the virtual computer. You have to put files on an external drive (optical, flash drive or other external hardware) to share them.

I hope this helps.

Hello Roy,

Did you install Windows 7 32 bit or 64 bit?

You can check by right clicking on "computer" then click on properties.

Then check System Type.

If it says 32 bit and you want to have 64 bit, you should INSTALL windows 7 64 bit on your system.


I hope this helped you.

When downloading a printer driver from HP you will need to ensure that you are selecting the correct OS (eg. Windows 7) and the appropriate version (eg. 64 or 32 bit operating system). These drivers are different and using one on the other will not work.
Windows XP drivers also will not work properly in a Windows 7 environment and the majority of Windows XP drivers are 32-Bit.

What year was dell latitude d510 introduced and does it support windows 7


  • It was introduced around 2005. It lacks the RAM necessary to run windows 7 (It has 512 MB, when you need 1 GB). So, I'm afraid this computer is not compatible with windows 7 unless you upgrade the RAM
  • Please reply if you have any more questions. Good Luck! Please give 4 thumbs up if I helped!

I have a TM-T88IIIP model MI29C and windows 7 operating system. Do you have a download available for this?? Thank you Carol


Here's the driver link for the Epson TM-T88IIP Receipt Printer: http://www.posmicro.com/RECPRINTERS/EPSON/Epson-TM-T88II.htm

This link will take you to the download page for the manual as well. This driver is supposed to be for Windows XP but should work for Windows 7 32 bit OS. Give it a try - if it doesn't work or won't install, then post back to this solution and I will help you further. It is likely that a Windows 7 driver doesn't exist, but unless you have the 64 bit version of Windows 7 this driver should work one way or another.

Good luck, please post back to this solution if you have any difficulties, and thanks for using FixYa.
