I am having problems with windows 7 64 bit OS, in Silent Hunter the game runs but not smoothly, so juddery as to be unplayable. Tiger Woods PGA 08 will not install at all, EA's support team say that no EA games apart from Crysis are compatible with 7 64 bit. It seems to be Windows 7 biggest fault that you cannot run it in a 32 bit or XP mode unless you upgrade it to Professional first.
Is there someone out there who could tell me how to configure Windows 7 64 bit to run like the 32 bit version.
There's nothing involved in "running 64-bit like 32-bit". Windows x64 will run 32-bit programs with no issues most of the time... but older software may have trouble with it. You can try running the setup in compatibility mode to see if it will install.
While EA doesn't officially support Windows 7 x64, that doesn't mean it won't work. Command & Conquer 3 says it won't run on Vista x64 after you install it... however once you patch it completely it runs without issue.
