I bought my version of FootNote long ago in the days of W98 and it does all I need; I certainly don’t want to spend a fortune on the latest version. After running the compatibility wizard I have it successfully installed it on a machine with W7 Home Premium. I have another machine running W7 Professional but following the same method a I used for the Home Premium the programme will not install. I get the message that the programme is incompatible. Can it be because the Home programme is 32 bit and the Professional is 64. Any advice?

*Can it be because the Home programme is 32 bit and the Professional is 64 * Yes that is why it will not work.

I am not familiar with the program 'Footnote' but a search chucked up this site for alternativeto.net/software/footnote/?platform=windows and the developer site for 'Footnote' where I think you can ask questions - it seems to be current as the last bug check is dated 12th Jan 2015 (although it meant little to me) launchpad.net/footnote

Not just yet, someone here may have a solution.

Two solutions occur to me: Run it in compatibility mode or (ii) Instal Win98 or XP as a virtual machine on your Win7 machine and run it from there

Thanks all. I will just use it in W7 home even though the machine is a bit slow.
