I got desktop tool that worked perfectly on 32bit machine but will not run on 64bit. I think because it uses access database. It is written in C#.net. I have no knowledge of coding and wondering if anyone could help me out....? I have original source code.

    If you have original source code, that you should be able to recompile under 64-bit, right?

      Zdenek I think you are right, but I do not have the knowledge, skill, or software to do this. I had the tool coded by a third party who I can no longer contact. I was hoping to find someone to do this for me....

        What you need is compiler, which will generate 64bit version of the program. I don't have clue which compiler was used for that, but I think that you can use this one:

        Microsoft Visual Studio Express - https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Micros...Studio_Express
        This should be for free.

        So download that, install that, import source code in and compile it. If you will have with something issue, let me know.

    Actually (in theory) you don't need to make 2 separate versions for 32 and 64, 32-bit version must work on 64. The most frequent cause of 32-bit apps not working on 64 bit Windows is that the platform was set to Any CPU for compilation. You need to recompile it with platform set to x86. For compiling most likely you'll need "Visual C# 2010 Express" from here: Download Overview (NOT 2013).

    Are you sure it's an architecture issue? Does the 64bit computer have MS office installed? If so, is it the same version as on the 32 bit machine? It could be an early binding issue.
