Hog3 PC installation error - Vista 64 bit

Mike CMike C Registered User
I'm trying to install Hog3PC-Win32-golden_3-0-5-2482.msi on Vista Home Premium 64 bit OS, and receiving a "This application is designed to operate on 32-bit operating systems only."

I've used the compatibility wizard to try to run as a XP SP2 program, but still the same error message.

Help?

    Its because the drivers are only written in 32 bit.. So they lock it out of being able to install on a 64 bit os. I am sure they will get around to doing it.. but there are other priorities first.

    Oh and if you decide to "bypass" this, HES will not support you if anything goes wrong.

    It doesnt bother me as a user because I use 32bit throughout. However it does seem a hinderence to other users. If you do a quick search, I am sure you will find a few threads where HES/Barco reps have commented on Vista 64bit.

    Have a great day!

    Thanks, Joe. I've tried searching "64 bit", but the HES search engine keeps dropping the "64" because it's too common.

    I see they've been beta testing with Windows 7, but does it look like I'll be in the same boat if I stick with a 64 bit OS?

    I would recommend going to a 32 bit os. Not enough stuff is on 64 bit that makes it soo much better. I switched my tablet from the 64 bit windows 7 using any of my normal programs (sound lighting and programming software for crestron/amx) and noticed no difference.. Thats just my personal take on it..

    If you had to stay with a 64 bit os, then you will have to use XPM on windows 7.
