    Hey

    I recentley changed computers so i have gotten one whit windows 8.1 64bits now, and when i start some programs they work whitout any problem, other programs dosent work since they are for 32 bits (shown by a error message) but some programs, just seems to load but when i check there is no process running for them and there is no program that starts.

    Anyone have had this problem before?

    Have you tried running the programs that show the error or won't start in the compatibility mode? Might also be the basic Admin rights requirement of the program, but it seems unlikely.

    Edit: Ditto on what K.H.R said.

    Right-click on the program icon, see properties, run it as some other emulated windows version.

    You can change the compatibility mode. You can also look on the program's website to see if there is an update to make it compatible with 8.1. Did you look on Get Article's FAQ's? Do you have Net Framework 4 installed?

    there's an interface layer WOW32 that provides a 32bits interface to the 64bits OS for 32bits applications

    When i tries to install net framework 4 it says :

    1) Microsoft .Net Framework 4 is already a part of this operatingsystem, you dont need to install this component .

    2) Same or newer version of .Net framework 4 has already been installed on the computer.

    It´s quite intressting acctually, i did browse trough my old computer and found two versions of get article

    Version 1 which is on 0,99 MB and dosent function on vista or windows 8.
    Version 2 that worked on both systems was just 225 kB.

    So i got it working, now i am going to remove the bigger file just in case.

    Thank you for your time and suggestions :)
