easyLINKAGE PluseasyLINKAGE Plus ›  Windows 10 64-bit compatibility for easyLINKAGE Plus

0 votes

I installed easyLINKAGE Plus v5.02 on my windows PC, but I get an error message when I run FASTSLINK. The error message is about the incompatibility with the 64-bit version Windows. I'm using a Windows 10 Enterprise, 64-bit system.

Let me know if you have a version of easyLINKEAGE compatible with my computer's specifications or if there are any changes that I need to make to my files or to the setup file. I previously used easyLINKAGE and it worked perfectly fine. It was a few years ago and I used it on a different computer.

Unfortunately, according to its official web page, the application hasn't been updated since 2014 and there's no version that will run on 64-bit systems. So, in order to run EasyLINKAGE Plus, I recommend setting up a virtual machine on your computer (here's a guide in case you don't know how to do that), installing a 32-bit version of an older Windows on it, then installing and running the application through the previously mentioned virtual machine.

The only other alternative I see is replacing your current Windows 10 with an older 32-bit version of Windows, but since those are no longer supported by Microsoft, it will be a pretty significant security risk.
