Hi All,

        I upgraded to a laptop which has Windows 7, I tranferred all my files and programs over from my old Gateway XP desktop.  When I tried to open up the Advantage Plus software it would not load a error comes up about not  being compatible 32 bit vs 64bit.  I am kind of po'd as I have had this software for years and have been able to use it for almost 3 months now.  Has anyone out there have any idea how to get this software to load so it is able to use it.  Any help is greatly appreciated.  Have a good evening.... play 404 in NY it's gonna pop soon!

      Check the Microsoft website, they have a XP Mode program you can download to your Window7 computer that allows it to run old programs that ran under XP. The only catch is if you're have the Home Edition of Window7 you will have to upgrade to the Professional Edition.

        If you've had the software for many years: It may be 16-bit rather than 32-bit: Try installing the software from the orginal CD: Windows 7 will give you a message if it can't be installed.

            Thank you everyone!  I see that they are redoing the program from DOS to Windows wow DOS haven't heard that is a long while.  Looks like I have to wait for the new upgrade from Smartluck.  Don't forget to play  404 its gonna pop soon!
