Re: o s

The four things that make 64-bit Vista inadvisable for ordinary users are:
1: No compatibility with old 16-bit Windows apps. This means ancient Windows 3.x software, which most people don't run any more, but 16-bit code can still pop up in the darndest places. Like, for instance, in the installer programs for other apps.
2: No automatic registry and file redirection, which is what 32-bit Vista uses to allow existing software to work with Vista's better user account security, even if the software wants to do admin-rights stuff to the registry and Program Files directory. Many apps still break in 32-bit Vista, but many more break in the 64-bit version.
3: No compatibility with existing 32-bit drivers. Everything on your computer will need a new driver. 64-bit WinXP is the same, and there aren't many 64-bit computers on which Vista won't at least install, but 64-bit Windows also has...
4: No support for unsigned drivers.

64 bit OS can run 32 bit software but if the software provider has a version for 64 bit it might require you to download this version ad prevent you from installing the 32 bit version.

The Turbo C++ you are trying to install is just incompatible for your OS. Because your OS is of 64-bit and you are trying to install 32-bit one. Try to find a 64-bit Turbo C++ program.

You can try downloading this one for 64 bit compatibility:

How do I change my laptop from 32-bit to 64-bit?

You have to check whether your CPU (Processor) support 64 bit before you can install any windows 64bit OS(Operating Systyem).

Check with the manufacturer Site first, ie if you Laptop support the 64 bit OS. Then download the any 64 bit drivers needed for the devices for your laptop before you begin your 64 bit OS installation.

If your laptop do support the 64 bit OS, best is to do a fresh installation.

Hope it helps.
