Question about Computers & Internet
Hello - You have the idea of the nature of 32/64 bit operating systems somewhat confused. 32-bit does not mean it is inherently downwardly compatible with 64-bit. To the contrary, much 32-bit software is not compatible.
64-bit versions of Windows try automatically to run in a 32 bit compatibility mode called WOW64. It couldn't work with Arcview. The actual problem with 3.x is that it has a 16-bit installer and no 16-bit software will run on a 64-bit OS. I checked at the ESRI website and the issue has not been fixed.
If Arcview is essential for you to run then it could be addressed by making your system dual boot between 32/64 bit Windows versions.
Thanks for using Fix Ya
