I am trying to use the command-line music utility OpenSPC on my Windows 7 machine. it has worked on all previous Windows 7 computers that I owned albeit they were all 32-bit Windows 7 builds. however, now on Windows 7 x64, I get the following error

{file path} OPENSPC.EXE cannot start or run due to incompatibility with 64-bit versions of windows
I open command prompt, type CD followed by the path of OpenSPC and when I type "openspc.exe" that error message occurs.

 

Is there any work around for this? I use this utility all the time and I need it. Is there an alternate command-line program to run this program?

4 ideas:

 

- use a virtual machine running windows 32bit

 

- use dosbox

 

- maybe this guy's new openspc works on 64 bit?

 

- idea to use winamp and a plugin

the OpenSPC link you posted still doesn't work on 64-bit Windows 7.

And I already have a Winamp plugin called SNESamp that can convert to wav. OpenSPC converts to .IT which makes it possible to edit and remix whereas the .wav output of Winamp, you cannot.

Locate the executable file and try to enable compatibility mode.

 

(right click > properties > compatibility tab > check the box > select the known good OS from the drop down list > ok)
