Hey so I recently bought a new PC and am running Windows 7 64 bit. I'm trying to install some older games (Might and Magic 6 7 and 8 to be exact) and every time I try to run the setup it acts like it's loading then nothing pops up. If I wait 5-10 mins a setup bar will pop up but immediately stops responding. The exact error is "32 bit setup launcher has stopped responding"...so I'm assuming this has something to do with my 64 bit Windows. Any suggestions on how to fix this problem?
