Installing 32bit drivers on 64bit system - is there any workaround?
Here's the thing, I'm trying to get my old Thrustmaster Tacticalboard game controller peripheral going again, problem is that it's a bit old by now, bought it in 2003.
One of the things that are necessary for it to work is the driver package is supposed to install a virtual Thrustmaster Keyboard and Thrustmaster Mouse drivers during the installation, but this isn't happening for me.
Drivers are 32bit, I'm running Win 7 64bit, drivers for this peripheral are no longer developed by Thrustmaster so there is no point asking them for help in this regard.
Basically Windows 7 installs it's default keyboard and mouse driver for this device and ignores the ones provided by the drivers package, which renders the device half-useless, keybinding isn't possible since the software doesn't see any device it's meant to modify, can't change any settings which isn't of any use for me since it's in need of pre-configuration to adjust it to your own individual needs/preferences.
Is there any way I can enforce use of these drivers? Or enforce the installer to put it's own drivers to use just for this device?
Maybe using Microsoft Application Compatibility Toolkit?
Would appreciate any help in this regard, it's a great tool for gaming, sadly discontinued and no longer supported with drivers, but if there is any way of getting it to work correctly it would be great!
