Running a 32 bit app in a 64 bit environment may not work?

Possibly running XP in a VM (Virtual Machine) may allow it to work...

But there are assorted methods to run older software in new windows versions... Pending others with more know how on this whole issue I idun a wee trawl and found a quite a bit; one of the hits being this discussion:

The above is part of a whole slew of hits I found here:

and there seem to be various workarounds which may work for you.; some seem quite creative to say the least?

As I say others here with more knowledge on this item will no doubt come up with other viable methods too. But have a look-see at the above info/links as well?

✔ Best Answer
See https://answers.microsoft.com/en-us... Basically, if you install Lotus Smartsuite with the "setup.exe" command in the RUN box it works. I've been running Lotus123 on Windows 7 64-bit for years. You can choose to only install 123 if that's all you need.
