  • Error message: "the version of this file is not compatible with the version of Windows that you are using", when you try to run an old ms - based back program in Win-7 Ultimate 64 bit.

    Original title: program compatibility Application Applications App Apps game games Legacy Crash crashes Hang hangs

    I get this message when you try to run an old MS-DOS - based program in Win-7 Ultimate 64-bit.

    "The version of this file is not compatible with the version of Windows you are using. Check your computer system information to see whether you need a x 86 (32 bit) or x 64 (64-bit) version of the program and then contact the software publisher. »

    I understand that I am under a 64 bit OS, but is it possible to get this program to run? I was wondering if anyone has tips :)

    Hi Bcopeland,

    Thanks for posting your question in the Microsoft Community.

    Based on the information, you are trying to install and use an old ms - dos program based in Windows-7 Ultimate 64-bit.

    The problem is a software that was created for Windows 95, 98, and Windows XP has no way to work correctly with an operating system that didn't even exist when the software was written. However, the error message you get normally means that you have a 32-bit software that you are trying to install on a 64-bit system.

    You can check the compatibility of the program with Windows 7, in the Compatibility Center.

    Compatibility Center

    If the program is not compatible, then you try to install and run the program in compatibility mode.

    a. click right on the program.

    b. click Properties.

    c. click on the tab compatibility.

    d. Select run this program in compatibility mode and select Windows Vista or whatever to use the system, the program was executed successfully.

    Here is an article that gives you more information on this:

    Make older programs in this version of Windows

    If the problem persists, you can get in touch with the software vendor to see for the latest version of the program to use the same system of 64-bit Windows 7.

    Hope the helps of information.

    If you need assistance in the future to resolve any issues related to Windows, post your query and we will be happy to help you.

  • Creative Sound Blaster Audigy 2 not recognized ZS running Win 7 Ultimate - 64-bit


    I have a situation where I ask for a help. It's as follows:

    1. the old desktop that PC is equipped with a device for Creative Sound Blaster USB based - Audigy 2 ZS attached, it was purchased in August 2008 and since then, initially worked with Win XP (32-bit) - August 2008 to Oct 2012, then Oct. 2012 (when I upgraded the operating system to Win 7 Ultimate 64 bit) until last week when I upgraded the PC hardware.

    2. However, after the upgrade, the PC does not recognize this device shows at all - a yellow exclamation mark with a label "unknown device" in Device Manager, when I connect the device to the USB port.

    3. the last time (in 2012) when I upgraded the OS on the old XP PC to Win 7 hardware, the operating system recognizes the device even without installing the drivers (i.e. for Audigy 2 ZS of Creative) and he has been active (usable), as soon as I plugged the same. However, later I applied Win 7 64 bit drivers from the Creative support site. Now, even though I applied the drivers for Win 7 64 bit for the device, it is not recognized under Windows.

    At the config of my old PC: Intel Core 2 Duo CPU E6540, card mother Intel graphics card Nvidia GT 220, some hard drives SATA 2 x 250 GB, 8 GB of RAM.

    At the config of my new PC: Intel Core i3 (3rd generation), card mother Gigabyte, graphics card Nvidia GTX 650, SATA 1 x 1 TB hard drives & 1 x 250 GB, 8 GB of RAM.

    I understand that this question, referring to the Creative device, should not fall directly under the responsibility of Microsoft, however, I looking for entries from anyone who may have any suggestions or is faced with identical situations / similar. Thanks for the patience to read this long query.



    Thanks for the suggestions. The origin of difficulties - the PC also has graphics card Nvidia GTX 650 and as part of the package of drivers for this graphics card, HD Audio driver (Nvidia) also was installing. This HD audio driver not allow Creative Audigy 2 ZS on USB to be recognized as an audio device. So I had to remove the HD from Nvidia audio driver and then install (an update) Creative driver for the device. It worked.

    Thanks for your suggestions.

  • How to create custom underscore and make a style that will not change the style of text when it is applied?

    Hi, I just want to know how can I create custom underscore and make a style, so that when I apply it to the text it right to point out that the article selected

    As long as no other character style is applied, you can create and apply a character style that is completely empty except for underscores. That will add an underline without affecting the text in any other way. If a different character style is already you must either add an underscore to this style definition (which will add an underline to all text formatted with this style) or make a copy of the style and add the underline, and then apply the new style.

  • (Win 7 Ultimate) 32-bit to 64-bit without

    Hey guys, I'm pretty new to computers, I just have a question. Can I switch from 32-bit Win 7 Ultimate to a 64-bit version, I do not have the CD right? Thank you very much.

    You can upgrade, but it will be a "Custom" / Clean install because there is no direct path from a 32-bit OS to a 64-bit version of Windows. "" See detailed information on getting a 64 Bit DVD and installation procedures below the dotted line.

    What this means is that you will need to re-install all of your applications and make a backup of your data (Photos, music, Documents, Etc.) files before start you.  I also suggest that you create an image backup of your existing installation of 32-bit as safety net.

    You will also need to download 64 bit versions of the brand device drivers your computer and model number. Install the drivers once the upgrade has been completed, starting with the chipset driver and then install the drivers, SATA, USB, Audio, LAN, or the Internet, wireless.

  • How to change Windows 7 Ultimate 32 bit to 64 bit with no disc?

    I've upgraded Windows 7 Home Premium 32 bit to 32 bit Ultimate.  I want to do a custom 64-bit Setup, but does not.  Now that I've upgraded to Ultimate 32 bit how can I change to 64-bit?  My upgrade was merely a box with an activation key, no disc not provided.  Upgrade to Windows 7 Home Premium to Vista buying and don't download from MS Store so no original or the other disk.  Thanks for any help!

    You must have the disk to do a clean custom install of Windows 7 Ultimate 64-bit.

    Contact the Microsoft Store for a replacement disk:

    You will need to do a clean install, there is no place on the way to upgrade Windows 7 32 bit to 64 bit.

    Using the disk of 64-bit Windows 7, install Windows 7 Windows Easy Transfer Utility from the DVD (to find it, simply navigate to x:\support\migwiz, "x:" is the name of your hard drive. (In this case, you will see a collection of files, the important"that you must search for and double-click is 'migsetup'.) run it and create a DAMP (Windows Easy Transfer file), if you have an external hard drive, you can access it later when you perform a clean install of Windows 7 64-bit disk so you can stored there.

    Once you have done this, just do a clean install of Windows 7 64 bit disc. In Windows 7 64 bit disk, start Windows Easy Transfer, follow the wizard screen, tap on which is stored the WET file (external hard drive) and it will restore your personal files and settings. Reinstall the applications needed.

  • Alesis Q25 - Win 7 Ultimate 64 bit

    My new Alesis Q25 MIDI keyboard does not work with Windows 7 Ultimate 64 bit.

    More people have the same problem and there is no driver available from Alesis. I don't really know what to do! Is it possible to make this MIDI keyboard to work. I know for a fact the Alesis Q25 works perfectly on XP and Vista, same Win 7 32 bit seems fine. The only system that does not work properly is Win 7 64 bit. Any help would be greatly appreciated!

    Hello Jens simons,

    It's ultimately up to the manufacturer of the hardware to provide a driver for different operating systems.  If they do not have one for Windows 7, then it is not that we could recommend.

    My recommendation would be to contact Alesis and see if they have no work around.  If this isn't the case, then by getting another keyboard with Windows 7 drivers will be the most likely solution.

    Best regards


  • Driver VGA geforce 310M for Win 7 ultimate 32 bit (VPCCW21FX)

    I just install windows 7 Ultimate 32 bit on my laptop (Sony Vaio VPCCW-21FX). But I can't find driver VGA (geforce 310M).

    Can you help me?

    Try the driver from the Nvidia website. It could work because you are not using the custom Sony OS. Otherwise, you will need to find a driver for a Sony notebook which has this GPU and Windows 7 32 - bit that's not likely. Because the laptop is equipped with a 64 bit OS, it's what you should have gotten, that Sony does not have 32-bit Windows 7 drivers for this model because it is not shipped with Windows 7 32 bit.
