Sorry. The support for IPX/SPX on Windows 7 (64 bit) has been dropped.

You can look here, however:

I tried that, but it only works for 32-bit. I'm using a 64-bit Windows.

Three Considerations for Containers

Containers like Docker and Rocket are getting more popular every day. In my conversations with customers, they consistently ask what containers are and how they can use them in their environment. If you’re as curious as most people, read our article on Experts Exchange.

You cannot run IPX/SPX under Windows 7 natively. What you can do however is install Virtual PC with XP mode, like described here:

Make sure you have your Virtual Network adapter configured in Bridge mode, so your XP mode virtual pc connects directly to the network.

A whole other route is of course to upgrade your server environment. IPX/SPX was used in Netware 4, which is End of Life since 2005

Semi-worked, but was enough to get the job done.
