By the looks of it, this is nothing more than a simple compatibility issue regarding the architecture of 64 bit windows. There isn't much info about the program spoken of online, so I'm going to have to assume that it is pretty old, as far as software goes.
when Microsoft released 64 bit windows (for 64 bit xp, vista, and 7 this applies), they decided that they would not implement software support for 16 bit programs. only 32 bit programs would have legacy support (most modern software is 32 bit). this means that programs that were written for much older versions of windows would no longer be able to run. This mostly applies to programs primarily intended for use on windows 95 and windows 98, for which a lot of software was 16 bit.
I'm sorry to say that there is really no way around this, it is simply the way technology is, and support for old legacy code has to continually be cut from newer, more advanced operating systems. I'd recommend finding an alternate, more up to date program to use.
hope that helps :)

32 bit, but I have 64 bit, is there a driver so I can use my cd or do I have to buy another?


32-bit programs will run fine on 64-bit machines, but 64-bit programs will not run on 32-bit machines. In the root directory of the boot drive (usually C:), you will see two folders; one is called PROGRAM FILES - this folder holds all the 64-bit programs. The other is called PROGRAM FILES (x86) - this is where all the 32-bit programs load.

Install it on the 64bit machine, right click the program icon, choose properties, run compatibility mode for xp most 64bit machine will run 32 bit programs this way.if this does not work partition the HD to run dual operating system so you have both 64 and 32 bit o.s. which you can choose on startup and run the 32bit programs on the 32 bit operating system.

Can't detect XP discs in win 64 bit


Hello Joe, 64-bit processing is faster than 32-bit processing because the CPU is handling more bits at once, However, a 64-bit OS requires more resource than a 32-bit OS, A 64-bit OS requires that device drivers operating in kernel mode be a 64-bit drivers, These drivers must be available from the device manufacturer. An application is compiled to process 64-bit or 32-bits. A 64-bit OS can run either 64-bit applications or 32-bit applications, but 64-bit applications are faster also 64-bit applications cannot run on a 32-bit OS.
A 32-bit OS can only address up to 4 GB of memory, More than that might be on the motherboard, but the OS cannot use it, because it does not have enough memory addresses to assign to the physical memory. A 64-bit OS theoretically can address up to 1 terabyte of memory although in practice, most motherboards can only hold from 12 to 16 GB of memory.( A terabyte is roughly 1000 GB or 1 trillion bytes). If you open many applications at the same time and have high computing needs and enough hard drive space and memory, you can benefit from 64-bit computing. To get most out of it, the processor, motherboard, operating system, drivers and applications must all be 64-bit, and you should have installed the maximum amount of memory the motherboard supports.

We have p3 32 bit primvera s/w but laptop is 64 bit so how can i install it in my 64bit laptop. pls. solve


Hi shuklapawan,
I looked for the specs on the software but could not find the system requirements. You might want to call Oracle and ask if the software is compatible with your Operating Sysytem (Vista, Windows 7). The phone number is 1-800-423-0245 While I was unable to find the official system requirements for Primavera's P3, from the few article I read on it, I don't believe that it is Vista or Windows 7 compatible. Also it is not really a 32 bit 64 bit issue, 64 bit systems run 32 bit software all the time, in fact there are many more 32 bit programs running on 64 bit systems than 64 bit software, due largely to the fact that the software companies are are just now starting to program 64 bit software. This is an Operating System compatibility issue. If you absolutely have to run P3, you might consider installing XP as an additional OS on your HDD with duel booting and running P3 in XP. Hope this helps

Not Enough Memory to run Microsoft Office Excel. Please close other Applications and try again..


Excel running on a 32 bit PC and using a 32 bit operating system can only address 2 Gb of RAM. If your machine has a 64 bit processor (these were being shipped over 5 years ago) it will be possible to install a 64 bit operating system such as Windows XP 64 bit or Windows 7 64 bit. It has been claimed that an Excel 2010 spreadsheet, running on a 64 bit machine and using Windows 7 64 bit, was able to load and use a database with 100 million records.

If you are unable to do this then I suggest that you examine what your machine is running at the same time as your spreadsheet and if any part of the spreadsheet can be off-loaded. By the latter I mean can any of it transferred to another Excel file?

Are you using any links on your spreadsheet, if so can the links be converted into data, e.g. a link to a lookuptable could be converted to data (copy, paste-special, value) and this remove a significant amount of processing load.

You can run a 32 bit technology OS on a 64 bit technology platform.

It will run pretty fast.

You just can't run a 64 bit technology OS on a 32 bit technology platform, though the 64 bit OS is recommended on a 64 bit platform.
