As it says really. I have 2 PCs at rpesent - and older single core machine running XP and a newer dual laptaop running W7 (though thats the wifes really). Both run 32 bit OS.

however, Im looking at replacing my Desktop (well not replacing - it will be relegated to my music - as in music recording - PC), and the ones Im looking at are all quad core, W7 machines with 64 bit processor/OS. Cant find any info on the gamne box ref 32/64 OSs.

Also - if it will, will all my old games? or just newer ones? I dont play too much as Im getting on (43 :( ), mainly Fm11, Civilisation iv (looking at getting 5 though), Total War (medievel 2 at present) and Eve Online.

so - will getting the new Laptop mean I cant run Fm11, or indeed any of the games listed. Any help appreciated.

I'm runnin' FM11 on Win 7 Ultimate 64-bit. It enables me to use all 4GB of RAM and it helps FM as FM too uses now up to 4 GB of RAM.

Yeah FM will run on 64 bit operating system and all your old saves will also work. Cheers.

The 32-bit games work just fine on 64-bit W7. Haven't encountered a single one that wouldn't work.

Sorry for the bump but when I put the disc in to install on my 64bit PC, this comes up:


and when I try to run the setup with 'run as administrator', this comes up:


Anyone know what to do?
