I've done this multiple time just for the fun of it. DO NOT DO this unless you're ok with your computer crapping out immediately or eventually. I've merged Program files, Program files x86 and both their common files, program data, the users folder, and several other system folders in every possible combination simply to see how the computer felt about it. ...

You can't run 64-bit executables on a 32-bit kernel: Can I run 64-bit executables on a 32-bit Linux? A poster on that thread suggested using an emulator (i.e. emulating a 32-bit architecture). This may sound a bit unhelpful, but it's usually best to go with a 64-bit install unless you have a specific need for 32 (i.e. hardware-related) as it's easier to ...

If you have a 32-bit OS, then you need to have 32-bit applications. The only way to get 64-bit applications to run is to run them under a 64-bit OS. BTW, it is possible to run 32-bit applications under a 64-bit OS. So the suggestion here: Find and use the 32-bit package Find the source, do a full recompilation for a 32-bit system, install and use that. ...

What happened, basically, is byte addressing. Prior to that there was no compelling reason to have processors have a power of two word length (though generally there were physical reasons for a multiple of 2 or 4, because circuitry came in such multiples). Prior to byte addressing the memory word was the same width as the processor word, and memory was ...

64 bit is the next logical step up. The reason is mainly because the step to double (or half) the number of bits is easy to handle in software and hardware for systems that operate natively in a different size. 32-bit systems where already routinely dealing with 64 bit values internally, before 64-bit CPU's became available. E.g: A 32-bit system can ...

If you have any Office 2010 products installed, then you'll run into an issue there. You can uninstall Office 2010 but if you are like me there are some part of Office 2010 you want to keep that doesn't come with Office 2013 (like Microsoft Office Picture Manager). If that's the case then Visio 2010 still installs if you don't need the cloud version of ...

Your cheapest legal option is go buy a used copy on a site like eBay (these generally are from people who bought a retail copy and have extra license keys that are unused). Obviously, buyer beware, but eBay's reputation system should help you out there. Next cheapest would be buying an OEM license (usually around $100-105).

There is no simple way. Which is what you need. The simplest way would be to get a CD/DVD/Blu-Ray+-DLRW drive. A blank DVD. magic-iso to burn your image to the blank DVD. Boot from that and install as usual. Sorry But that's the factsjack

The Wikipedia article on the "3GB barrier" explains it pretty well. If your OS doesn't support PAE you're going to be limited to 4 GB physical address space, and that has to include both RAM and mappings of PCI device "registers" and "memory". The usual big consumer in the latter category is your video card. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/3GB_barrier

Virtualization systems usually gain significant performance by exposing host hardware to guests system as directly as possible with minimal translation, and usually do that by installing specialized drivers on guest system, as VirtualBox Addon Packs do. The problem with your setup is that such an exposure is not possible because of different hardware setups, ...

in boot.ini, the option /maxmem=4096 got it working for me, but afterwards one of my sticks died and I can't seem to get it working again... it may be possible to hack windows to get it working. EDIT: a 2nd restart fixed it for me to add, don't set /maxmem above 4096 or you will re-enable PAE mode.

See here In this post they solved this issue by installing the kernel-lt from ELrepo and installing the firmware from kernel.org.

I think the problem is either related your browser or your Flash Player. So you could try to check and fix them separately. Flash Player: Update it to above 10.3 and restart your browser to have a try. If it still does not work, you may disable hardware acceleration and replace hardware rendering with software rendering, read detailed instructions in this ...

It is important to understand that Windows' "low on memory" or "out of memory" warnings are not about physical memory, or RAM. They're about virtual address space, or more precisely, the commit limit. Now, a program that allocates and references a lot of committed virtual address space is going to have a bloated working set (physical RAM allocation) too, but ...

I tried CheVolume over the last week. It was very easy to use. I was able to Assign some apps to play sound from TV while other played through my speakers. Sometimes the wouldn't work and I would have to try multiple time to make it work properly. But overall its pretty nice.

The Answer Is http://www.michaelstevenstech.com/XPrepairinstall.htm Repair Installation. It installs XP over XP, overwriting all the important files. That is not the recovery console. Your data should be fine. It touchees c:\windows and might work in c:\program files and works on your registry. Any other folder like c:\blah is left alone. I don't think ...

Yes. Your Macbook Air could run windows 8 There are 2 ways in which you could go about achieving this 1)Use a visualization software like virtualbox(free) or parallels(paid but integrates better with OSX) to run windows within OSX like another program (Both 32 bit or 64 bit can be installed this way) 2)Use bootcamp to install and run windows 8 alongside ...

I had the exact same problem; Hyper-V uninstalled, BIOS/UEFI virtualization enabled, tried forcing the VM to be enabled. In the end, the solution was quite simple: When you install VirtualBox with all the correct settings, it will state that only 32 bit guests are available as before. However, if you then restart your computer and try to load VirtualBox ...

You can invoke the correct uninstaller without knowing the GUID etc. by using WMIC. To see a list of the names of the programs as known internally by Windows: wmic product get name Look for your product name. It probably matches the one listed in the "Programs and Features" control panel, but not always. Then you can use wmic product where ...

Windows runs makecab.exe to reduce the size of the old CBS log file. You can find compressed CBS.cab files under C:\Windows\logs\CBS. Windows scans for updates at start, so it detects too large logs and compressed them. So, calm down, nothing is wrong.

I had the same problem on Windows 7 64-bit; I solved it by installing the Cygwin packages pkg-config and libX11-devel before typing easy_install matplotlib==1.1.1 (the 1.3.1 version is having errors on my machine, hence the 1.1.1).

I find lsusb easier and faster to use in such situations.

Please refer to Microsoft's Windows 7 install and upgrade FAQs for your information. You cannot upgrade architectures without performing a "clean" install of Windows. This is due to most of the 32-Bit and 64-Bit system files being incompatible across versions. Ref: http://windows.microsoft.com/en-gb/windows/32-bit-and-64-bit-windows What you are trying to ...
