in search of a thread about X86 and X64 compatibility

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
ok I have been using the search feature on ocn to no avail.
a while back there was a thread about why a X64 system cant run 16 bit software. and things of that nature. as well and other items of interest with 32 bit and 64 bit compatibility.

does any one recall what section it was even in. or happen to have the bookmark?

What exactly is it that you need to know? One of us may be able to answer it directly.

well I was trying to explain to my father why there is issues with older programs like those from win 95 running on a new vista 64 bit machine. But my mind failed me and I can not remember the actual reason, and how cpu's handles processes and the like.
