Win7 and Crosstalk compatibility

Postby ssnret » Wed Oct 20, 2010 1:26 pm

Trying to install Attachmate Crosstalk communication software on new laptop.

Here's what I've got:

Dell Inspiron 1545 with Intel Core2 Duo processor (64bit) running Windows 7 Home Premium. When I try to run setup.exe or setup32.exe I get this error message:

" The version of this file is not compatible with the version of Windows you're running. Check your computers system information to see whether you need an x86 (32bit) or x64 (64bit) version of the program, and then contact the software publisher"

There is a Program Compatibility troubleshooter in the Windows Help menu that allows you to try configuring Windows for earlier versions. I tried Windows 95, 98, XP(SP2) and XP(SP3) with no joy.

Attachmate hasn't provided support for Crosstalk in more than 8 years and there is absolutely no reference to the program on attachmate.com.

Hello,

Sounds like you just have a case where you are trying to run a 32 bit program on a 64 bit Operating System. Let me look around and see if I can find a work around.

How old is the software you are trying to install?

I spent some time trying to find an answer using what you have but have come up blank.

Take a look at the following link. It does have some new software ideas to replace yours.

The only thing I can reccomend is an Virtual XP Modein Windows 7 x64.

It is my understanding that the XP VM is only for Win 7 Professional and Win 7 Ultimate. I did find an article about running an XP VM for Win 7 Home Premium as long as one owns a copy of XP. I have never used this method but you can read about it here: http://bit.ly/a6JrVL

Thanks all. Gary, the Crosstalk software is more than 11 years old and had worked like a champ up till now. I'll try those links.

Thanks, Lee.
