    32 bit program on a 64 bit platform


    Ok long story short...

    I've a program which is made for 32 bit platforms. But now I've a 64 bit platfomr. I would like to avoid buying the further release which would cost a lot and I was wondering if there's any chance of running it in someway. I'm running linux SuSe 10.0 on an Athlon FX-55.

    You should be able to run any 32-bit software on an AMD64 platform, whether it be an OS or just a program. You can run 32-bit software on a 64-bit OS as well. What's the program?

    I've heard folks trying to get it working, but I've never used it myself. I'd give it a shot. If nothing else, you can install a 32-bit Linux on your AMD64 and it should run exactly like it did on a 32-bit machine.
