  • Showing my hardware/software ignorance

    So my bosses are finaly going to kick me down a new machine. The guy building it wants to install Windows 7 in a 64 bit environment. We run Quark 6.5 and are not planning on upgrading any time soon. Will it run in 64 bit?

    I don't think so - but can't you just install into the 32 bit folder?

      Ah tech notes : gotta love em
      Can I run 32-bit programs on a 64-bit computer?

      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 the 32-bit version of Windows don'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. To learn how to check for drivers, see Update a driver for hardware that isn't working properly or go to the device manufacturer's website. You can also get information about drivers by going to the Windows 7 Upgrade Advisor webpage.

        Thanks. I've got it posted on the Quark boards too. I'll post what I find out.

        I can upgrade for $300, but I'm afraid that might be asking a little much for as often as we use it. And on top of a new computer

          As part of a technical team working towars migrating to 64bit Windows 7....Forget it! If they say they don't support it, it likely will not run. I have a few applications that are not certified for 64bit, and they do not function at all, as expected. I have more than a few that will not even install.

          The Quark groups are great ones to ask, but my bet will not work.

            You want a program that is used to dealing with vector axis data. Photoshop would probably be inappropriate.
