I have bought DELL Inspiron Laptop with windows 7 Home premium. I am not able to some programs such as Matlab 7.1/RELEX reliability software etc. Error message is operating system system incompatibility. What should do to solve this problem. Anybody plz come forward and help solve this problem.
It's not because of it being 64bit, 32 bit programs work fine under a 64 bit OS, the problem is Windows 7. You would still have the same issue if you had the 32 bit version of Win 7 installed.
I found this, you can try it:
To install Matlab 2007 on windows 7
1-Change Windows 7 Theme to the classic one (windows classic)
2-now the Matlab install will work correctly
To use Matlab with other windows 7 themes you have to change java used by matlab.
1- download latest java version and install it.
2- go to C:\Program Files\MATLAB\R2007a\sys\java\jre\win32 you will find a file named jer1.5.0_07 rename it to Original_jer1.5.0_07
3- go to C:\Program Files\Java you will find file named jet6 (jetX for Xversion) copie it to C:\Program Files\MATLAB\R2007a\sys\java\jre\win32
and rename it to jer1.5.0_07
Now you can use matlab with all themes.
