Install 32-bit Apps To Program-files Rather Than Program Files (x86)

On 64-bit win7, is it wrong to install 32-bit apps to (drive letter):program files rather than program files (x86)? If wrong should installer prevent this? If installer allows it, what app behavior is appropriate?

Background: winzip 14. 0 (a win7 compatible 32-bit app) won't run if installed to c:program files. If installed to any other alternate path or folder name it runs ok. By convention starting with vista, c:program files (x86) is for 32 bit apps and c:program files for 64-bit apps. But installers allow overriding the install path and folder name. e.g, maybe i want 32 bit apps in c:program files and 64 bit apps in c:program files (x64).

If c:program files is a restricted location for 32 bit apps, should not the installer and/or os enforce this, rather than allow installation then break the app? What is the correct practice for both users installing apps and developers porting apps to win7?

Program Install Error - A File That Is Required Cannot Be Installed

Program install error: a file that is required cannot be installed because the cabinet file setup has an invalid digital signature. Cabinet file setup 11. Cab has an invalid digital signature. When trying to install a software program on my windows 7 netbook, an installer information panel stated "a file that is required cannot be installed because the cabinet file setup 11. Cab has an invalid digital signature. This may indicate that the cabinet file is corrupt".

Thus the program would not load. Is the problem with the software or with the windows 7 netbook? If the netbook is the problem, can the faulty cabinet file be removed and replaced with a correct file? If so, how?

2.0 Net Framework Error - Cannot Install On A 64-bit Operating System

Neighbor purchased a dell inspron 400 (zinohd): amd athlon2850e (1. 8ghz, 512k), 3gb ddr2 sdram at 800mhz, 320gb serial ata hard drive (7200rpm), windows 7, service tag 2858hk1
 
He had a number of problems that i have helped him cure. But one issue remains. Each time he turns on the computer he gets a notification that he needs to load and run .net framework 2. 0. However, when he goes to the referenced site and tries to download and run the program he gets an error message stating: "error: cannot install on a 64 bit operating system. " Ignoring this message doesnt appear to adversely affect the operation of the system but he has not used the computer for long and he fears there may be issues downstream.
 
He is an older gentleman, not at all computer savy and has been very frustrated by this and his inability to get help from dell or microsoft. He is considering returning the product.
 
In an effort to help him out, i have looked into this problem through the internet. I am an experienced pc user and can normally handle most issues like this but im not yet familiar with windows 7. I understand that windows 7 includes the .net framework 3. 5. 1 as an os component. I believe this means you will get the .net framework 2. 0 sp2, 3. 0 sp2 and 3. 5 sp1 plus a few post 3. 5 sp1 bug fixes.

Thus, you don't need to manually download .net framework 2. 0 and install it on windows 7. I have run the verification tool found on the internet by searching cannot install on a 64 bit operating system " 2. 0 net framework on google to verify the existence of these .net framework versions. The all are verified successfully. How can we eliminate the initial popup notification from appearing at power-on? What am i missing?

Download Programs To Default Folder "program Files" 32-bit Or 64-bit

I have been confused if programs automatically download to the optimum "program files" for 32-bit or 64-bit or do i have to select which if the two program files i want it in? It seems everything has been going into the x86 file. I don't want to just move them all over to the 64-bit file if they really belong in the x86 file, but i am sure my new photoshop programs belong in the program files file yet they seen to have downloaded into the program files (x86) instead. Also, how am i to know which programs are better suited for either folder?

Update: i tried copying the photoshop file and moving it to the 64-bit folder but it won't let me do so, saying a file is in use somewhere. I do not have any files from this open; i even restarted the computer to completely close anything that might be open and i get the same message. Is this maybe because it does not belong in the program files folder for 64-bit programs? Any other hints on how i can move this program, along with adobe premiere elements (for making videos) that gives me the same message? I have been told these programs would work better running as 64-bit programs so that is why i want to move them.

Cannot Open 64-bit Adobe Program

I bought a new dell xps 8100 64 bit machine. Then i installed my adobe cs4 and lightroom 2. Neither one will open. I am getting run around from dell and adobe techs. Both says its the others problem. Both want me to spent an additional 200 dollars, for software help, after spending 1000 on computer and 1400 for adobe products. I have used both on my old win xp system with no problems ever.

Now buy this great new high tech computer, 64 bit, and now can not use either program. Has anyone else experience a problem with this issue? If so, have you resolved it? Please help if you can. I have already spent over 5 hours on telephone between the two companies since i received my new computer 3 days ago.

Custom Install - Program-files And Program Files X86

Custom install from windows vista hp 32 bit to windows 7 hp 64 bit leave 2 program files - "program files" and "program files (x86). Mostly same files in either folder. If x86 is needed, i don't mind but why duplicate entries with items like windows mail. I tried to to delete program files x86 without any success, and i would like to delete system-32 files in the windows folder plus any other 32 bit related items, if possible.

I do not want a system with duplicate and redundant files. Because two items that i downloaded and installed appear in both program files, i'm suspending any further actions on the installation until i'm fortunate enough to receive some help and/or advice from this forum.

Error Printer Sharing - Xp 32-bit To Win7 32-bit

I've recently installed windows 7 (32 bit) and i tried sharing my printer (which is connected to my windows xp 32 bit pc). Previously, i successfully did printer sharing on my vista (32 bit) system before it got upgraded to windows 7. However, when attempting to share the printer, i get the 0x0000000d error.

My printer: canon ip4680 pixma

What steps i did
On xp computer
- Right clicked on printer, clicked on "share" and gave it a name
- "Additional drivers" section has windows xp checked. I don't see a row for vista or win 7

On win 7 computer
- Clicked on "add printer"
- Saw and found my shared printer on my xp computer
- Double clicked to add printer
- Passed the "finding drivers" stage
- Reached the "finalizing installation" stage
- After about 10 seconds, the error message pops up

I have already reinstalled my win 7 driver and updated my xp driver to the latest version (v2. 20) [which can be found at http://support-sg. Canon-asia.com/contents/sg/en/0100138101.html]. I also tried the solution at http://support.microsoft.com/default.aspx/kb/947236 but to no avail.

After An Accidental Shutdown The 32-bit Program Flickers

Dreamweaver 8 worked fine for the first few days on my windows 7 computer. Oddly the companion program, fireworks, is just fine. I accidentally hit the power strip and turned the computer off. Since then it it won't open. When i try to open it, it flickers on, then disappears. Same thing happens when i try to get the 8. 02 patch from macromedia.

Yes, it's an older version, but i am reluctant to buy cs4 since it's not quite compatible and they're coming out with cs5 sometime this year. Does the flickering signal something worse with my computer? Any way to get this 32-bit program running again?

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.

Program Files In Home Premium 64-bit Edition

In my recently purchased dell studio 1550 laptop "windows 7 home premium 64-bit edition" is preinstalled by dell. It has intel core 2 duo processor t6600 (2. 20 ghz // 800 fsb // 2mb cache).

Now in os (c:) there are two programs folders, first is "program files" & second is "program files (x86)". I made a search in google for this and came to know that "program files" is associated with 64-bit programs & "program files (x86)" is associated with 32-bit programs.

Before purchasing this system i thought that this system will only run only those programs which are 64-bit & also w7 hp compatible. But now my query is that whether i install any w7 hp compatible program (either 32-bit or 64-bit) to my system?

Duplicate Program File Folders On Win 7 Pro 64-bit

I clean installed win7 pro 64 bit os from win7 pro 32 bit on my laptop and duplicate program files folders (with and without x86 designation) have been created. The duplicated files are windows programs, internet explorer, windows defender, windows mail, windows media player, windows nt, windows photo viewer, windows portable devices and windows sidebar. Does this mean that these duplicate windows apps are needed for 32 bit and 64 bit software to be able to work with that type of software respectively? Do i really need a 32 bit and 64 bit versions of internet explorer, windows defender, mail, media player, nt, photo viewer, portable devices and sidebar?

It would have been nicer just to have one set of these windows applications that works with both 32 bit and 64 bit software. These windows applications use a lot of hdd real estate. It would also be good to be able to have the option of uninstalling one of the duplicate sets. Is the ability to do just that available now?

Win 7 64-bit App Installations Always Default To Program Files (x86)

I've just recently installed windows 7 64-bit. When i try installing 64-bit applications such as firefox namoroka or google picasa 64-bit the default is always to install in "program files (x86)". The default should be "program files" for 64-bit apps. Shouldn't windows detect that it's a 64-bit application and default the installation to "program files"?
