COM on 32 bit, 64 bit
I am learning COM and Windows programming so please forgive me if my
question looks stupid to someone.
I am writing a COM component for 32 bit platform and 64 bit platform.
Consumer of my COM component runs on 32 bit platform and also on 64
bit platform using WoW64.
I would like to know whether there could be any interoperability
issues between my 64 bit component and my consumer, which runs on 64
bit platform using 32 bit binaries.
Thanks in advance.

I have a full version of Office 1997, and purchased Office 2000 upgrade

active version of Word already on the computer, and the product upgrade

the error message that there was no compatible software to allow the upgrade,
or something like that. I directed the verification process to look at my

How can I convert 16 bit files to 32 bit files?
If you are talking just converting a few files I'd use Notepad. Open the
file, change the type, and save it.

What are 16-bit and 32-bit files?
Perhaps you mean 8-bit and 16-bit text files?
Is it safe/recommended to encrypt the a drive/volume which contains AD DB or
SYSVOL? What kind of challenges does it pose?
You can of course encrypt a DC drive with bitlocker, but in my opinion this
makes only sense in an environment where a DC can not be physically safed.
Also you have to keep in mind that this only helps, if the server is shutdown
and should be started new without having the correct key available. there
is no influence on the AD database or sysvol when bitlocker is used.
See here about preparing a server core install for bitlocker:

We are going to install GP 8.0 on a 32-bit server in-house and restore a

Next, we will upgrade this in-house server from 8.0 to 10.0.
Continuing, we will install GP 10.0 on the client's new 64-bit server.
Finally, we will restore the upgraded 10.0 databases from our in-house

I have a 24-bit bitmap of size 32 x 32, which I would like to use as
the application's icon. I have two questions:
1. Can an icon have more than 256 colors? VStudio and some other icon
editor applications (which I downloaded from web) do not allow more
than 256 colors for icon files.
2. If #1 is not correct (i.e. if icon CAN have more than 256 colors),
how do I use my 32 x 32 bitmap for application icon?
Thanks in advance
The way to test this is to create a 24-bit icon and test it. Do this by

I have recently upgraded Windows Vista Home Premium SP2 to Windows 7 Home

Is this possible using the Microsoft upgrade CD, please?
A clean install is the only way you can go from 32-bit to 64-bit. Boot
with the 64-bit disc and let it find the current installation then
delete the partition with 32-bit Win 7 and proceed from there.

I have to display a splash screen on startup and the splash screen component
software I'm using (old Visual C++ 5 component gallery if memory serves)
just puts up a bitmap. I am using VC++ 5 to build this particular app. The
bitmap editor only allows me to use 16 colours. But if I edit the bitmap
file using MS Paint, I can use all the colours I want, and save it as a
24-bit Bitmap, and everything appears to work fine. When I run the program,
the splash screen looks OK with all colours present as far I can see. I
