@GreenGiant72 

Apps that are 32-bit run just fine in 64-bit Windows 10 -- as they are installed to Program Files (x86).  So, the problem is not 32-bit apps.

 

If you're trying to run an older 16-bit app, that is a serious issue as you can only do that in the 32-bit version of Win10.  IS that what you are trying to do?

 

Any modern PC that can run 64-bit OS can also run 32-bit OS -- you just will be limited to using about 3.5GB of memory, so if you have a lot more than that, the remainder is essentially wasted.
