Rdc And Homegroup Do Not Work - Win 7 64-bit And 32-bit Network


I am having problems connecting my windows 7 pc's, i am currently running 64 bit ultimate as my personal pc , another 2 have win 7 32-bit. I also have 3 routers on the same network, but 2 are being used as switches ( dhcp turned off) and 2 other pc's are installed with vista 32 bit ultimate and win xp pro 32 bit on my trusty laptop. The network is stable and everyone has an internet connection. The problems started when i tried to setup a homegroup with the 3 win 7 pcs. The 64 bit win 7 ultimate sees only itself in the network and i cannot set anything up in this state , i have not yet made any modifications to any pc or router and through this forum can hopefully set something up that will accommodate all pc's. I also cannot get rdc to work between 64-bit win 7 and either of the other win 7 pc's. Laptop win xp pro is wirelessly connected and has all updates to date.

Xps M1210 Vista 32-bit Drivers Work For Win7 32- Bit ?

Xps m1210 with vista 32 bit- will the drivers for vista 32 bit work for windows 7 32 bit? I have had very little help from dell on this one- so far from what i have found, it sounds like the drivers for vista should work fine for windows 7, but i want to be sure before i install windows 7 on this computer and end up making it useless for days because a wireless card driver wont work or something. Can anyone tell me with certainty if the drivers will or wont work for windows 7?

64-bit On Network With 32-bit Xp

My new laptop with w7 home came with both 32 and 64 bit restore discs - neither has a 25 digit authentication code. 32 bit was pre-installed. I want to upgrade my laptop to 64 bit and run it on a wireless network with my old 32 bit xp pro desktop. 1 am i allowed to use the 64-bit disc to upgrade my new laptop? I realize i will need to do a clean install, but i don't want to risk not being able to complete the install as i do not have the 25 digit code key. 2 assuming the answer to 1 above is positive, will both my laptop and my desktop still be able to access my devices, eg printers and hard drives ( as they do at present).

Win 7 64-bit Doesn't Distinguish Between Ie8 64-bit And Ie8 32-bit

Windows 7 64bit doesn't distinguish between ie8 64 bit and ie8 32 bit when attempting to set a default browser using the control panel default programs 'associate' utility. My new windows 7 64 bit pc (luv that i7 920 intel cpu) came installed with both ie8-64 bit and ie8-32 bit (nothing more need be said regarding the absurdity of having to deal with this in the first place - i should have gone with the imac).

Anyway, ie64 bit lacks the flash player cuz adobe hasn't released a 64 bit version yet, per their website. So i can't use ie64 with xm online music stream (et al). Ie32, on the other hand, supports flash player, but won't successfully link to various embedded hypertext links, such as those embedded in an email. My initial solution was to use firefox, which served me well until an application from a local vendor will only work with internet explorer. Sigh.

I've used windows since version 2 back in the 1980s, have become stoic, and can emotionally cope with having to use 3 browsers to get the job done.

However, just for fun, my current burning question is, with two different versions of ie8 (64 bit and 32 bit) installed into windows 7, why doesn't the control panel default applications utility seem to aware of the fact that there are indeed two different versions installed? It lists firefox and internet explorer, but does not differentiate between the two flavors of ie. My goal was to set ie8 64 bit as the default browser temporarily to accommodate the vendor's application.

Fyi, by setting the default, i refer to: control panel | default programs | associate a file type or protocol with a program. Then scroll down to 'http' and click on the change program button. So in my case, firefox and only one instance of internet explorer, with no bit distinction, display as selection options.

Xp Programs Work With Win7 64-bit ?

If microsoft suggests that windows 7 professional 32-bit will run my old xp programs, does this mean that this is the minimum requirement, and that my old xp programs will also work with windows 7 professional 64-bit?

Xp Mode Is 64-bit Or 32-bit In Win 7 64-bit

I am planning on purchasing win 7 pro & installing the 64-bit version. I intend to make use of the "xp mode" feature if i can install 32-bit printer drivers within the xp mode, as my photo printers have no 64-bit drivers. I currently edit my photography on a win xp pro 64-bit pc, which is networked to a win xp pro 32-bitpc in order to print images. I need to know if "xp mode" is 32-bit - even when installed with the 64-bit version of win 7 pro. I want to be able to convert/edit my photos in win 7 64-bit, then print these images using "xp mode" via the 32-bit driversi intend to installin xp mode- all from the same pc. Is this do-able?

Program I Need To Run Windows Will Not Work On 64-bit

I installed windows 7 pro 64 bit on mac with fusion. Turns out the one program i need to run windows will not work on 64 bit, or so they say. I uninstalled and re-installed the 32 bit version. Now i am being warned i only have a few days left to use the program without a new key code. Is there any way around this problem. I am not using the 64 it program, and do not want to pay for another key to run the 32 bit program. The program i need to run with windows is some little known billing program called therapist pro. I have talked to them and they will not take any responsibility for helping me with getting their program to run correctly.

Ati Radeon Sapphire 5770 - Win 7 64-bit Asks For 32-bit Drivers

I have windows 7 64 bit. I recently changed my video card for an ati radeon sapphire 5770. I had an nvidia before that stopped working. I installed the lastest drivers from ati for win7 64 bit (version 10. 5) after uninstalling those from nvidia. Everything seems to be working fine, but windows keep telling me that there's no drivers installed for my card, even tho i can access the catalyst control center. When i click on the link that windows provide, it always lead to the 32 bit version of win 7. Is it a known problem? Is there something i can do to correct that?

Multi-boot System Win 7 64-bit & Vista 32-bit On One Hard Drive

Multi-boot system windows 7 (64-bit) & vista (32-bit) on one hard drive - do i need two hard drives?I have an existing windows vista ultimate (32-bit) system installed on a 500gb sata hard drive, partitioned into 2 partitions (c: and d:). I would like to make the system multi-boot so that i can back-track to vista if i have a problem with win7.

One issue here is that i plan on multi-booting vista 32-bit and win7 64-bit on the same hard drive without touching the d: partition of the hard drive. I don't know if this is possible, but i'm interested to see if it is.

I've done some research and have found that win7 has many compatibility modes, so maybe i don't need to worry about keeping an installation of vista on my system? I just don't want to be "caught with my pants down" if something were to go wrong with win7, like if one of my programs was incompatible or something along those lines.

If i can't multi-boot vista 32-bit and win7 64-bit from the same hard drive, can i do it with 2 hard drives having one os on each hard drive? Or, am i being much too paranoid about this and should i trust microsoft on this one that win7 will not have any large compatibility issues with my most used programs?

For reference, here are some of my most used programs: firefox 3. 5, steam, adobe photoshop (versions 7. 0 and cs3), ie tester (for web development), winamp, trillian (an im and irc program), itunes, skype, mozilla thunderbird (for e-mail), and fraps (in-game video recording software).

I know that this is a lot all at once, but does anyone see any foreseen compatibility issues with any of these programs and win7 64-bit ? I'm also worried about the compatibility of some of my drivers with win7 64-bit, but i've heard that there have been leaps and bounds made with driver compatibility on win7 64-bit (as compared to the mess it was with xp 64-bit). Is this true?

Printer Sharing - 64-bit Win 7 And 32-bit Xp In Remote Desktop Session

Printer sharing - 64 bit windows 7 and 32 bit windows xp in a remote desktop session. Windows 7 machine with a local ricoh / aficio 1045 b & w multifunction printer attached. Works fine, uses 64 bit printer driver. This computer connects to a windows xp machine (32 bit) using remote desktop session (terminal services).

On the xp machine, i installed the 64 bit printer driver via printers and faxes -> server properties - drivers - add driver. I can see the driver there, successfully installed (have rebooted, etc). Despite this, the printer will still not show up when rd session is run. In event viewer, i can see there's an issue with it finding the correct driver.

I've used the terminal server printer redirection tool in the past to solve these problems (tspdrw.exe) which works great. The correct 64 bit driver is not listed as a choice when scrolling through options to reassign the driver. Hopefully that is clear, not sure what i am missing.

Upgrading 32-bit Vista To 64-bit Win 7 Without Losing Files

I have two computers with vista home premium 32-bit oem versions on them. I want to upgrade both of them to windows 7 home premium 64-bit versions, without losing any files, folders or programs.

Can i use the same family pack license to upgrade both computers to windows 7 home premium 32-bit versions, then upgrade both 32-bit versions to 64-bit versions using the same family pack license?

Will this keep the original files, folders and programs intact? Is this a reasonable process that will get both computers to 64-bit versions? Or should i just upgrade both computers to 32-bit versions of windows 7, and live with it?

Dual Boot 2 Hard Drives Xp 32-bit With Win 7 64-bit

I would like to set up a dual boot system with windows xp and windows 7. I have 3 hard drives in my system now, one as xp system disc, another for storage and one unallocated that i want to install windows 7 pro(64). I want to leave my xp installation intact for now. I have been trying to research just what i need to do to install windows 7 on that extra drive and i am seeing all kinds of conflicting answers. First, i have all my original operating system disks so i want to purchase an upgrade version of windows 7 pro.

Specifically i want/need to know will i have to install windows xp first on that empty drive before i install windows 7, or can i just insert the xp disc as proof that its an upgrade as i have done with previous windows installations. I would just like to know what i am getting into.

I am asking because i have seen conflicting answers, such as:-i need to buy the full version (lets be honest, the upgrade price is expensive enough) because it won't let me do an upgrade. This just doesn't seem right.

I have to install xp first on that empty drive before i can install the upgrade version. No mention what-so-ever of the windows 7 checking for a previous version of windows even when viewing detail installation instructions regarding installing windows 7 on a separate drive with xp installed first on another. 95% of installation instructions assume you are just doing an upgrade right on top of the old windows xp installation, maybe 4% a dual boot where you are partitioning a single drive and i think my eyes are starting to bleed from reading and sifting through all the tutorials that don't apply to me lol.

Can I Run 32-bit Xp In Xp Mode Virtual Host Under 64-bit Win 7?

Can i run 32-bit xp in the xp mode virtual host under 64 bit windows 7? I have a legacy program (for an alpha smart neo) that communicates via usb, and it is not compatible with 64 bit platforms.

I'm not sure if the 32 bit limitation is in a driver, or in the main manager program provided with the neo. On a related topic, can i load 32 bit drivers in the virtual xp under windows 7, assuming i can run 32 bit xp under 64 bit windows 7?

Will I Need To Upgrade All Of My Existing Software To A 64-bit Version, If I Use 64 Bit Win 7 ?

I am ready to purchase a new desktop computer with windows 7, but i am a little confused about the 32 vs. 64 bit decision. I understand technically what the difference is, but i am not sure what the impact on my software will be. At present all i have is 32 bit software running on both my desktop and laptop, some of which is quite old but still needed and very functional. I can't afford to replace all of my software, some of which have no counterpart in 64 bit. My new laptop is running 32 bit vista (less than 1 year old). Will i need to upgrade all of my existing software to a 64 bit version if i get the 64 bit version of win 7 or will i be able to use my old software with the new os? I also plan to upgrade to a new version of office. What impact will that have if i go to a 64 bit version? What about compatibility with my laptop and the existing 32 bit office on it?
