Color Scheme Editor wont run on x64 OS

Hi everybody..

I downloaded an old app, a Color Scheme Editor, it edits/creates color schemes for TomTom. I tried to run it today on my x64 machine and it says that it can't be ran on x64 machine. Is there any way to run x32 apps on 7x64 OS?

I was looking for some stuff on the net, but could find anything that could help me


Thanks a lot.

You could ...

Install a virtual computer on your 64-bit system, like Virtualbox or VMWare Player. Both are free. The install a 32-bit operating system for your application. Easy to do.

In fact I do have virtual machine, but I was wondering if it is possible to run it on x64 machine. I thought that most x86 software works just fine on x64 os.

Not always. You can try running it in compatible mode.

The compability mode doesn't do nothing in this case
