Windows 7 Home Premium 64bit
I am having a problem loading a progrm from

I have downloaded an application from When it download, and is expanded, it runs a program csterm. Which gives me the 32/64 bit compatible error. I am running win 7 home premium on an Acer laptop. I contacted them about a 64 bit version, that told me it is my laptops problem. This is their answer: Any help will be appreciated.

Before following the numbered instructions after this paragraph you should first ensure that the Microsoft Windows default file, winsock.dll: resides in your c:\windows folder... and that only ONE copy of winsock.dll resides on your entire harddrive.

This is a 2-paragraph reply that includes a solution to your problem which is with your computer and not the software...

1/2. The War Library military-access software works on ALL versions of Windows from Win 1.0 to the present, and all UnRestricted bit formats from 8-bit to 512-bit. It sounds like you were lured into purchasing a Restricted-mode, 64-bit-only version of Windows. This is common in Hewlett-Packard, Dell, Sony (Toshiba), Samsung (Acer), Compaq and Gateway which primarily sells service assistance and upgrades.

2/2. It was not Microsoft's intent that the PC manufacturers named above remove or disable a primary Windows operating feature solely to resell that function as an upgrade when the user would inevitably realize some software programs won't run. Contact your computer dealer or manufacturer and request that your restricted version of 64-bit Windows be installed with Windows Ultimate (see below) so that your PC operates in the multi-platform mode that Microsoft intended it to operate.
