I don't know anything about dental programs but I do still use a couple 32bit legacy programs that even though they are for XP, they run flawless using WOW64 menu on 7, 8.1 and 10. Has this been tried? Seems like it should help here. Just a thought :headbang:

The dentist should just upgrade his equipment, and write it off as a business expense.  If his stuff is so old it will only run on XP then he probably should have replaced it years ago anyway.  Dentists charge a ton of money, and always try to get you to spend more.

I think they have a special course in dental school in how to maximize income and minimize outlay by squeezing.

jajjjajaaa  you guys.. !!!  all of you are right !!!  the equipment he has is OK however the software is old on ly works with 32 bit but ONly this software all others he has working find with windows 7 Pro 64bit??   so explain this company is charging him just for software and change like Ethernet card or something like that....

Well  I install all other software and works pretty good in 64bit.. SO just this particular program.. and now this program was develop by company is NOT in business any more however the Main company of the equipment is not support it any more and they don't want to spend the money to develop for 64bit.... Well I try to load it in 32 without any success,  I wish to know how to fix it ....... but like you guys said .. is time to move on !!! 

Well I will let you know how goes ... tomorrow is the day I gonna work in those computers... but first I will install in ONE computer first to see how works and IF goes fine I will let you know too... IF goes wrong and he didn't like it ... I will let you know too... any way I give you all of you updates about it....

Autodesk are assholes like that too.  They put out versions 2012 right before W-8 came out, but didn't support W-8.  If you want to upgrade to 8, then you spend thousands of dollars on new Autocad because they won't develop a patch.   So you upgrade, but all the files you make are not backwards compatible, so if you work with other companies that don't upgrade, you can't create files on your new up to date software, and let them view it on their last year software, and Autocad says Sorry Charlie!

If you really can get it to operate under W7X32 I suggest that you install an SSD which will really help as a PC that old really needs all the help it can get. I have an old dell setup under XP to run a slide scanner that can't be replaced. The SSD makes it useable. For the USB port, look on line, they do have external powered USB adapters that go in-between the PC port and the external box. I found that I had better luck with the xray units if I ran them on a separate PC.

A whole separate PC? The one he's using now for xrays is under the receptionists desk.  :histerija:    Just Kidding!

It's funny how everyone is talking about dentists. It's one of the most lucrative professions there is. Annual mean wage: $170,940 (Dentists) http://www.askmen.co...n-the-us_2.html

 

That isn't the money their business makes, it's their project personal salary. 

 

They should have more than enough money to keep their systems in check and upgraded. No I know it's not an absolute for every person, but come on. at least upgrade a computer or two.l
