Yes, I demand weird things!
I have bought a new pc with Athlon 64 and I am currently using windows64. Is there any way to run the old exile games (1-3)? Compatibility options and letting it run in a seperate memory space won't work...
I understand that the games are not meant to be played on such machine, but I could be wrong ;)

By the way, all Avernums and geneforges run regularly. Oh, and great board...

Thank you. :cool:

I think it might be because the Exile games are 16-bit applications and the Avernum games are 32-bit (I'm not totally sure though). Maybe the new 64-bit processors are just not meant to run 16-bit applications.

tr6y VMWare Virtual Workstation to emulate a 16 or 32 bit PC.

Windows XP x64 Edition doesn't support 16-bit programs anymore so older games and programs using 16-bit won't run on it. You'll have to try the program the Takeru Takashi offered and hope for the best

You could try an emulator like DOSBox, maybe? It's made to run on a 32 bit processor, but the 64 bit windows can run 32 bit apps, can't it? It's open source, too, so you could always compile it to work on a 64 bit system yourself if you wanted, too! If someone else hasn't already done that, that is.

Well, the VMWare Virtual Workstation can't register its classes to create objects. It won't even start so... :(

I will check dosbox later, I had a version in my old pc...
Hey, don't overestimate me! I just know Basic, some C++ and currently learning java and sql. Not your idea of a decent programmer...
I will look for an 64 bit version...
Thanks for the replies though... :D
