Windows 7: Installing 32-bit Software on a 64-bit OS Fails

Installing 32-bit Software on a 64-bit OS Fails

I've been using Windows 7 Ultimate 64-bit for some time now and in the past have successfully installed a 32-bit application without any problems.

But today, after a reinstall of Windows, when I attempt to install this software, I get a warning box telling me "installing the 32-bit version on a 64-bit operating system is not supported."

Other 32-bit software has loaded without any problems.

Any suggestions on how to address this?

It might be the software installer. Get the 64 bit version from the softwares website

Win 10 x64, Linux Lite, Win 7 x64, BlackArch, & Kali

When diagnosing computer issues, specifics are usually necessary.
Telling us the particulars, such as the software that won't install would help.

Windows 7 Ultimate x64

The program is Application Mover. I paid for the 32-bit version about five years ago, but have successfully installed it to my 64-bit system many times, before yesterday's failure.

I'm curious as to why it would load and then not load, and what, if anything, I can do to get it to load again.

Thanks for any help.

looks as tho Funduc have changed their installation options, since you purchased it

  • See the respective program page for the specific installer to download. If your computer is a 64-bit operating system please look for and use the 64-bit version of the software. Unless otherwise noted the 32-bit versions will not work correctly on a 64-bit OS.
  • See 32- vs. 64-bit computer for information about how to identify the operating system for your computer.
