Does the software package work in Win 7 64 bit using compatibility mode?
Anybody know if this would work if it is run in the compatibility mode?
Here is some information i found about the compatibility mode, im not very knowledgeable about the programming aspects of software and kernels, etc.
For each operating system call made, WOW64 generates native 64 bit system calls, converting 32 bit data structures into 64 bit aligned structures. The appropriate native 64 bit system call is passed to the operating system kernel, and any output data from the 64 bit system call is converted into a format appropriate for the calling application before being passed back.
Like 32 bit applications, WOW64 runs in user mode so any errors that occur in translating an operating system call will only occur at that level. The 64 bit operating system kernel cannot be affected.
Since WOW64 runs in user mode, all 32 bit application code must also run in user mode. This explains why 32 bit kernel mode device drivers and applications that rely on them, will not work under Windows 7 / Vista 64.

There is some more info there if it helps.
