  1. 32-bit Program Hangs After Loading on My New 64-bit Notebook


    I've been running a 32-bit program on my 64-bit older Lenovo laptop for some time now, but when I installed the same program on my new HP Envy laptop, it just loads with the normal screen, but won't allow any interaction. I need to get Task Manager to end the program. Both PCs are running Windows 10 Home with Update 1903, so I don't know what's going on.

    Some differences between the two machines are as follows:

    Lenovo: i5 Intel, 8GB RAM, 15.3" display

    HP Envy: i10 Intel, 16GB RAM, 17.3" display


    Is there some Compatibility code written into the 64-bit Windows 10 software to enable running 32-bit programs?

    Just wondered if this is the case, maybe it's missing from my new laptop. Where would I check this, and how do I get it if needed?

    Thanks,

    Frederick

    :)

    loading a 32 bit program onto a 64 bit windows system

    Yes, 64-bit Windows can run both 64-bit and 32-bit programs.

    But note that the opposite is *not* true: 32-bit Windows can only run 32-bit programs, not 64-bit programs.

  3. Is this 32 bit or 64 bit?

    Is this 32 bit or 64 bit? I use 32 bit W8.1 and I have a number of legacy programs which would not run on 64 bit and are irreplaceable.
