I need to do a compatibility test which shows an application Win 7 32 bit compatible but Win 7 64 uncompatible. As it contains some driver called ser2pl. So i want to know what is my option to make it work in win 7 64 bit...... anyhow I m not a developer.

you can use AdminStudio which has AppCompat or ChangeBASE 

I think you can use the eval version to test this...

  • I already tested that application. The error in compatibility with win 7 64 bit is that it contains 32 bit versions of drivers. So how will i remediate.
  • most 32bit apps will work on a 64bit OS .. did you test the application ?
  • Does the product have different drivers available for x64 systems? If so, you could write a check into your script to determine architecture, and then deploy correct drivers. If it's a vendor app it should be able to do that, unless its too old to account for such a thing (gasp!)
  • See, as per my knowledge though 32 bit applications run in 64 bit.. if it contains 32 bit device drivers then it will not run in 64 bit. .. Yes it's a vendor app... so should i ask to client to give it or wht... See i am doing a packaging.. n I checked that applicatn in AdminStudio by removing those drivers n its getting installed. But I think its not the correct way as it will create problem later on
  • So please someone advice ... is it good to omit those drivers from the package or to get 64 bit versions of the drivers which would not be gud as client will not give it....

You can ask the vendor for a 64 bit compatible driver.. It is better to use a compatible driver than to make a 32 bit compatible if it is not working.
