Hello all,

I really have not been able to get on but maybe once or twice in the last couple of years, and have not gotten to play at all in 2 years. And so when all the planets came into alignment and the omens were all good, (a.k.a. Finally I have access to both electricity and internet..LOL..) I go and purchase a laptop computer. I download WIR, like a junkie thinking I was going to get my fix. Then my whole joyous world comes to an abrupt halt when I try to start the game and it gives me the finger!!!!...LOL...

Actually, it tells me that it requires a 32 bit system and will not play on a 64 bit system? Heck, I did not even know such a thing mattered??? Does anybody know if there are any remedies for this? Please keep in mind that I am not terribly computer literate and so the simplest "computers for morons" instructions would be best.

Thanks in advance.

Look at the earlier posts in this forum : Why won't it run : Download issues : How to download WIR : WIR and Vista. I am not sure if it will address the specific 64 bit problem, but DOSbox solves most problems with WIR running on new systems.

If you can run DOSbox, you can run WIR (and any other old DOS game).  So getting DOSbox to run is the key.
