Windows 7, downwards compatible NOT!

Filed under: automation,windows — SiKing @ 3:13 pm

I’m currently working on something new – another post coming later – and as usual I try to write scripts for everything which can subsequently serve as a roadmap for full automation. This time I’m doing it on a Win7 machine, which is a 64-bit operating system that is supposedly fully compatible with 32-bit applications. In the file system there are two locations where new programs get installed: c:\Program Files and c:\Program Files (x86). I don’t know if the location of the install actually matters to the operating system – actually makes the system consider the application as a 64- or 32-bit app; I suspect it does not. AFAIK it only serves to further confuse and break stuff. 🙄
