F22 ADF/TAW - Windows XP 64bit / Windows Vista 64

Hi, I'm a noobie here!

But I've been playing Total Air War and F22 ADF since 1995.

I'm wondering since both are great games, has there been any effort at all to write a patch for XP 64 or Vista/Vista 64.

I've got XP 64bit and when I try to run either, it says "This program is a valid Executable but for a machine other than this machine".

I think that's because 64 bit OS's won't run 16bit programs.

If there is a patch for either of these games already available, I would appreciate any links to get these patches (or is that against forum rules).

Anyway any help would be appreciated.

Thanks

Tom

It's okay now!

I don't think it will work on 64 bit, but it appears to work fine on Vista 32 bit, just a lack of sound which Im sure is minor setback.

I think my solution below does NOT work in Vista Business.

I just installed that on my machine and had to change up the fix to get it to work.

Installation of TrueSpeech Codec for WMP 11 – Windows Vista Business Edition

The DSP codec can be installed on Vista using the following procedure:

1. Acquire tssoft32.acm and tsd32.dll (can be easily found by searching for them online)

a. I found tssoft32.acm here:

http://members.driverguide.com/driver/deta...p?driverid=7020

i. NOTE: just do the free sign-up, because the “series of ads” never ends!...use an alias

b. I found tsd32.dll here:

http://www.driverskit.com/dll/tsd32.dll/3632.html

i. NOTE: they make you wait for 100 seconds hoping you’ll click on some ads while you wait…click a couple and they’ll make some $$$

2. Copy both files to the “C:\Windows\System32” folder

a. Note: If tssoft32.acm is present, rename it tssoft32_old.acm before you copy the new version to the folder

3. Place tssoft32.acm and tsd32.dll into the Windows\System32 directory

4. Create the following registry entry:

a. Navigate to the following folder:

KEY_LOCAL_MACHINE>Software\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\Drivers32

b. When inside the Drivers 32 folder, right-click and select New > String Value

c. Name it “msacm.trspch”

d. Right-click the new “msacm.trspch” and click “Modify”

e. Set REG_SZ value to: “tssoft32.acm”

f. No need to reboot, just close regedit

g. The registry setting should look like this:

5. You can verify that it is installed by opening WMP 11 and under the Help menu, clicking on “About Windows Media Player” and then “Technical Support Information”. A webpage will open listing all the codecs installed. If tssoft32.acm is listed, you’re set! If not, I am sorry, but I cannot help you :-(

Caution: Do not edit the registry unless You already know what you're doing.
