I need to install a software that requires 32-bit operating system in Windows 7.
My computer has 64-bit operating system, therefore I'm not able to run the installation file.
Is there a way to overcome this problem?
Thank you for your help

Most 32-bit programs are installable on a 64 bit machine. What is the name of the program?

It's Oracle BI.
When I click the setup.exe I get the following error message:
Error: This version of the Oracle Fusion Middleware Business Intelligence 11g installer requires a Microsoft Windows (32-bit) operating system.

It looks like this particular program (you have) cannot be installed on a 64 bit machine.

Download the right "appropriate" version from:
