    Ms works 7.0 works in W10 64 bit but not in 32 bit-in build 10130...


    Ms works 7.0. in W10 64 bit but not in 32 bit-in build 10130.

    Here are my test methods
    64 bit clean install of 10130 works installed & worked
    64 bit upgrade install from 10130 works installed & worked
    32 (X86) bit clean install from 10130 works wouldn't install and of course didn't work. Unable to do upgrade testing on that.

    64 bit Microsoft Works?


    Is there actually a 64 bit version of Microsoft Works? I am trying to install 8.5 to a Windows 64 bit, but get a crash when opening database file. I get Works 9 to do a seemingly clean install, but get some weird errors at various points as well. For instance, I can't open .wks word processor files from desktop shortcuts, but will open fine within Works. I'm thinking it may because this Windows version is 64 bit? Works 8, 8.5 and 9 all work perfectly on Windows 7 32-bit systems here (as well as XP, Win 8, and 10) ....

    Apparently there never was a 64 bit version of Microsoft Works. It would seem unlikely. It was designed as a basic office suite where a 64 bit version would have little to offer. Most 32 bit software will run on a 64 bit OS but there are exceptions, particularly older software. Very likely it would run on Vista 64 bit but was of course was never tested on Windows 7 or later as they did not yet exist.
