Unfortunately, the current release supports ONLY 16 bit resolution... but - doing some modifications might get it to work with 24 bit as well (still no 32-bit support, sorry...)!
Please take a look here.

Best regards,
Pelu.

Hi


Thanks for using FixYa. First you’ll need to install the Windows XP Mode and it will in turn install the display drivers as well and then you’ll need to go to properties and click on display settings and from there select 32 bit. Please do accept the solution if the issue is resolved or post a comment for further assistance.


Thanks

    Then it means that the Windows XP has not been
    installed properly and some of the files are missing. The other possibility
    might be the monitor drivers might have gone corrupted and required to be uninstalled
    and installed again. If this is not the case then please uninstall and
    reinstall Windows XP and then see the results. If still the issue is not
    resolved, then I’ll suggest you to switch back to Windows 7 Ultimate because
    even Windows Vista Ultimate has got only two options of 16 bit and 32 bit.
    Please do accept the solution if the issue is resolved or post a comment for
    further assistance.









    Thanks

    As I suggested uninstalling and re installing the monitor drivers
    as well, please confirm that you have done this as well and even then the issue has not been resolved.





    Thanks

    Please go to display
    settings and click on advanced settings. From there click List All Modes and select
    1440 by 900, True Color (32 bit), 60 Hertz and I hope the issue will be
    resolved. Please do accept the solution if the issue is resolved or else revert
    for further assistance.









    Thanks

I have an older version of Compton's "Real Science" . Is it possible to install this on my new computer running windows 7


Not exactly. If you have windows 7 professional, or ultimate, you can try installing windows XP mode. Go to microsoft's website for it. you will then be able to install the program under the new virtual XP installation, and it will then be available for use under XP mode programs list. it will run in an XP style window. It's pretty neat. Otherwise, it's quite difficult to make 16 bit programs to work on a 64 bit operating system. there are ways, but it takes a great deal of computer know how, and how to work with some fiddilly software.

I cannot install School house rock 3rd and 4th grade


There are workarounds besides using an older version of Windows (dual boot or a separate machine). This requires a licensed version of the older Windows OS. However, if you have the most common version of Windows 7 - Home Premium x64, you'll have to spend some money.

School House Rock - 3rd and 4th Grade works with Win98-XP. So, you can run a virtual computer with the older version of the Windows OS. Then install the School House Rock program into the virtual version of Windows as if it were the only copy of Windows. If you have Windows 7 Pro or Ultimate, or upgrade to one of these versions, you can do this for free. Download and install Virtual PC and XP mode from Microsoft (in order). Other virtual computer programs are VMWare and Parallels. However, with those, you need to buy the program and have a licensed version of the Windows OS.

If you have the 32-bit version of Windows 7, you can try the compatibility mode. (To check your version, click Start > Control Panel > System and Security > System. If the title of the OS ends with x64, you have the 64-bit version. Otherwise, you have the 32-bit version.) If you have the 32-bit, right click on the installer for the School House Rock software. Select Properties and then the Compatibility Tab. Check the Run this program in the compatibility mode and an older version of Windows. Then click Apply and then OK. Right click on the installer again and select Run As Administrator. You may need to repeat this for the program itself.

I hope this helps.

How can I run PrintMaster 16 Platnum in Windows 7


Printmaster 16 Platinum is an older program and is compatible with XP and older versions of Windows.

First check which version of Windows 7 that you have. Click Start > Control Panel > System and Security > System. If your version title ends with x64, you will need to use an option that lets you run an older version of Windows. If you do not see x64 in the title, then the compatibility mode might work.

For the 32-bit OS, right click on the installer and choose Properties. In the Compatibility tab, check the box for always run in the compatibility mode and select an older version of Windows. Apply the changes and click OK. Then right click again and choose Run as Administrator. You may need to repeat this to run the software as well. This is not guaranteed to work in Windows 7 32-bit.

The alternative is to run an older version of Windows. This could be on a second computer, a dual boot computer or a virtual computer (if your hardware supports the feature). Most of these methods require licensed version of the older Windows OS. If you have Windows 7 Pro or Ultimate or upgrade to them, you can run a virtual XP OS for free. Download Virtual PC and XP mode from Microsoft. Then install the Printmaster program in XP as if this is the only OS. (Other virtual computer programs are Parallels and VMWare.)

The only other option is to upgrade to a version of Printmaster that is Win7 compatible. One option is Printmaster 2012 Platinum available here: http://www.broderbund.com/p-273-printmaster-2012-platinum.aspx .

I hope this helps.

What is the procedure to install a 32-bit softwares in to my laptop(windows 7,home premium,64-bit) ?


Most programs designed for the 32-bit version of Windows will work on the 64-bit version of Windows. Notable exceptions are many antivirus programs.
Device drivers designed for 32-bit versions of Windows won't work on computers running a 64-bit version of Windows. If you're trying to install a printer or other device that only has 32-bit drivers available, it won't work correctly on a 64-bit version of Windows.

Windows 7 64bit does run programs that will run on windows 7 32bit, see here

How Windows 7 / Vista 64 Support 32 bit Applications

BUT not ALL 32bit programs will run on Windows 7!!! There are many programs that will run on Windows XP and before that will not run on Windows 7. IF you had Windows 7 Pro version (or upgrade) there is a program you can download from Microsoft that will simulate an XP environment to allow programs to run called "XP MODE".
Try to install the 32bit software first. If installation not succeed, it would be better if you first look into a newer version of the program you want to run.You have to consider that a newer version of your program might not be that much more expensive than upgrading to pro, and with the newer version, usually comes newer features.

Hope this help and if helpful RATE please.

It requires at least 2 gb ram and c2 duo or higher. Be sure you have that min with your pc. next you need windows cd. insert it int drive and press F3 or any key to boot with cd. It's then very simple just do as pc says. In format using type choose NTFS next just proceed as directed and you are done.

I am not able to run turbo c++ on my windows 7.it gives the error that "the version of this file is not compatible with the version of windows you are running.check your computers system information to see...


Depending on your version of Win7 and your computer specs, you could try to run the software in the XP mode (Pro or Ultimate). This is a virtual machine and needs dedicated memory and does not directly share files or peripherals with the real machine. It has worked well on our machines for several older programs (Win2K and XP versions) - these were 32 bit programs and ran on a 64 bit Win7 Pro machine.

Running the program in the compatibility mode might work as well (right click, choose properties and then the compatibility tab).

I hope this helps.

some software my not be directly open in windows 7 yet, (like if u c, when u install AutoCad 2006 on Vista Ultimate u can't open it directly, 1st u have to right click on it then Run as Administrator, then it will be open and work) like this prob, i sure that u have to right click on the icon of ur software then run it as Administrator, i think it will open. and your problem will solve..
otherwise your version of 3DS Max is not compatible with Windows 7 and you have to install different version of Windows (Like Xp).

32 bit program to 64 bit opperating system


From the Autocad webiste:
System Requirements AutoCAD® Civil and AutoCAD® Civil 3D® 2009 Recommended System Requirements Recommended configuration (excluding server components used with project management capabilities):
  • Intel® Pentium® 4 (3 GHz or higher); AMD Athlon™; multiple processors supported, dual-core supported
  • 32-bit only: Microsoft® Windows Vista® Ultimate/Business/Enterprise, Microsoft® Windows XP (SP2)
Note: Windows XP 64 and Windows Vista 64 are supported in 32-bit compatibility mode only.

Here's how you should be able to run it in compatibility mode:
1. Right click on the Autocad Icon in your start menu
2. click on Properties
3. click on the Compatibility tab at the top
4. check the box next to Compatibility Mode and select Vista 32 bit if it is given as an option.

I don't have Vista here, but that is how it works in XP and I did do a search and it appears to be the same in Vista.
