ResScan SW thread 2 -- runs on 64 bit OS?
#1
Some of you know I just moved up from DOS (actually Windows XP) to Windows 7 pro 64 bit. Before I try to install it, does the present version run on my OS? I suspect it does as 32 bit programs run (usually.)

Yes, I'm running it on 64 bit Windows 8. I have used it on 64 bit W7.

Just beautiful today. It was supposed to rain of course, but it hasn't done that. As a matter of fact I went outside this morning and got hit with a sunbolt.

Practically everything that runs on 32-bit Windows will run on 64-bit Windows.

This includes SleepyHead and Rescan.

Expect trouble mainly with things that involve "drivers", especially hardware drivers.

I have some programs written in FORTRAN and compiled on MS FORTRAN 5.1 which is IBM AT vintage (80286). It compiles and links for 16 bit.
I find none of those run on my 64 bit OS. I'll likely have to virtualize a 32 bit OS. Some are old NASA and NRL codes. One I make the most use of is a pseudo random password generator.

Yes, that is because they REMOVED the 16-bit sub-system in 64-bit Windows.

32-bit stuff generally should be expected to run fine.

As to something like a password generator, there are likely tons of them for both 32-bit and 64-bit or something that could be whipped up in under an hour.
