Hi bluesea24

Try using the software in the compatibility mode.

After u install the application right click on it and then go to the compatibility tab and then check the box run in compatibility mode and select the OS of choice. Hope this helps :)

Basically the 32 bit software is not designed to work on the 64 bit OS that is the reason we are using the compatibility mode to make it run in the 64 bit OS environment. It is an alternate way to make the software work though it is not designed to work for the particular OS environment. Hope that helps :) 

Also you cant run a 64 bit software in 32 bit OS even using the compatibility mode.
