PSPad says it does not run in Windows on ARM, but does

#1 PSPad says it does not run in Windows on ARM, but does

Posted by: LostInAThunderingNow | Date: 2022-08-04 12:26 | IP: IP Logged

I am using a Xiaomi Book S tablet, which runs Windows 11 on ARM64 hardware. Windows 11 automatically emulates the Intel architecture for 32- and 64-bit applications.

When I attempt to install pspad506_x64_setup.exe the installer says "This program can only be installed on versions of Windows designed for the following process architectures: x64". The message itself is correct, I guess, but the portable version of the program does run run fine under 64-bit Intel emulation the same way I can run other Windows x64 applications on this hardware.

The installer should be changed to accept to install the program in systems where full 64-bit Intel emulation is available.

Many thanks for a fine text editor.

Hello
Use ZIP, unpack it into folder outside Program files and you have fully functional portable editor.
In the next installer I will allow ARM.
