32bit to 64bit?

Hi. So i just downloaded Theme Hospital (becuase its epic) but it wont install because its in 32bit and my computer is 64bit. Does anyone know how to convert it to 64bit? I really want to play this game again!!!

Not sure exactly but with a lot of old games you can run them in "compatibility mode".

Re: 32bit to 64bit?

Looked up this game. It is DOS based which is whats really causing problems. Get a DOS emulator like DOSbox, I think it should run on 64 bit.

Technically to convert an actual program from 32 to 64 bit you'd have to recompile it from the source code, but its very likely you can run it on your 64 bit machine somehow. The only programs that wont work are drivers written for 32 bit.

Architectures are not written as separate things, otherwise we'd have way to many operating systems out there, i386 from decades ago and 32 bit are all supported by a 64 bit processor otherwise windows wouldn't run.
