    Thanks HG! I'm on limited allowance satellite ISP and not sure how big the trial download is. Maybe someone else can try it.

    Ok... it is an electronic design automation tool....... used to make circuits... it is Windows Vista 64 bit compatible and unofficially win 8 compatible.... other than that is pls tell me is there any forced way of installing the tool in 32 bit mode... any general or specific way...?
    It really depends on how up to date the software is. Some third party 32 bit program can be installed in 64 bit windows, some can't.
    However, looking at the website provided by HG. It says it is compatible with Windows 8 etc... You can try to right click on the installer->Properties->Compatibility and set it to Vista then right click on the installer and run as Admin.

    FYI, DLL (Dynamic Link Library) files are bunch of files that contain common functionalities and can be shared by different programs/Applications so those DLL files must exist as part of Windows DLL files or included with the installer.

    The best way is to contact the Software vender and ask them to sort it out.

    Right click on the installer .exe file, then properties, compatibility tab, Run compatibility troubleshooter.

I installed some software and didn't make it, 'admin', so now every time I start it, it asks for permission to allow it to modify W8.1 My question; Is there a way to change it now, after it's already installed?
