Re: Is there any softwares and games compatible with Windows Vista 64 bit

Hello friend

Even I am using Windows Vista 64 bit since 6 months and never faced any knid of such issues. Everything is working very well. However there may be 3 to 4 software's which will not work but does not bothers me at all. Games like Counter Strike (all), Far Cry, Crysis, etc does not have any problem under Vista.

OK, so there is no problem with the games. That seems to me a good news.

Now about your RAM, how many do you have? If its 4GB, didn't you felt a difference in games?

Re: Is there any softwares and games compatible with Windows Vista 64 bit

To know with certainty, we must open an executable file by loading it into a text editor. You can see two letters "PE" (Portable Executable) or "NT" (New Executive) somewhere in the first five lines in the middle of the small square which include non-printable characters. If it is "NT" then this is not good because the format "New Executive" is the old 16-bit. If it is "PE" then it's good because the format Portable "Executable" which is good 32-bit/64-bit.
