I need to load some of my granddaughters games in a new windows 7 laptop. Can't load because of 64 bits. How can I load it with 32 bits on same laptop

unless these games are 16bit you shouldn't have a problem

64 bit processors can also run 32 bit processes (just not 16bit)

maybe you can tell us what game, what the laptop has hardware wise and the error that is showing up

go to adobe's site and download the flash installer, install flash, then try to install the game again

if that still doesn't work try the installer in compatibility mode for xp sp2

You're probably trying to use the 64-bit version of Internet Explorer. Since Adobe Flash only comes in 32-bit versions it won't install inside 64-bit IE.

The solution is simple: use 32-bit Internet Explorer. There should be items for it in your Start Menu - 64-bit IE is definitely listed as "Internet Explorer (64-bit)", so "Internet Explorer" or "Internet Explorer (32-bit)" is what you want to use.
