Last Modified: 2013-12-27

I'm trying to play some older games (Age of Empires III, Command Conquer Generals, etc) over a lan with pcs running Windows 7 x64... but i really can't play since none computer can join a host game... nothing appears and neither direct connect!

I think its a IPX/SPX problem, because as i saw since Windows Vista, there is no support for it...

I saw in many forums the possibility to run the game using a Virtualization (Microsoft Virtual PC) but all pcs is running Windows 7 Home Premium x64 and its only supported by Windows 7 Ultimate, Professional

Somebody know how can i play multiplayer game without IPX/SPX in Windows 7... there is a way?

Some program? some solution?

Best Regards!
