Windows 7: 32bit software working w/ Win 7 64 (learningdisability)

32bit software working w/ Win 7 64 (learningdisability)

Now here`s a time when I badly need help.

I recently purchased Whitesmoke. As a student with a disability it`s a program that would benefit me greatly. It is an advanced grammar program, which I truly need.

It works to some degree on windows 7 RTM 64bit, but the F2 feature where you can highlight text in any word processing program, doesn`t work.

There`s also many other bugs I encounter.

This is Whitesmoke's official response

`"Currently WhiteSmoke is not compatible with 64 bit computer, only with 32 bit.
We apologize for the inconvenience."

Can anyone figure some way I can get this to work.

If its absolutely critical that you have this function, or that the program operates 100% then install the 32bit version of Windows 7.

There is a kind of clumsy work around. Dual boot WIn 7 64, and win 7 32. You have the system for it (thanks for filling in the sys specs). If the only problem you have is that F2 doesn't work you might be able to assign it to a different "F" key. You're going to have to read the manual.

Hope this helps and good luck
