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.

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.
