Legacy SFT2805 software for Sepam 2000 relays - problem installing for 64-bit Windows Operating System.

The legacy SFT2805 software for Sepam 2000 relays can be used on Windows 7.

However, it will run only on 32-bit versions of Windows 7.  It cannot be used on any 64-bit Operating Systems.

If your computer is running a 64-bit version of Windows, you may try to obtain the "Windows Virtual PC" software from Microsoft.  Although the "XP Mode" for this Windows virtualization software is no longer officially supported, it is possible to create a virtual machine using the Windows XP Operating System.  According to response from moderators on forums, all "XP Mode" virtual machines are 32-bit platforms.

In other words, it should be possible to install the SFT2805 software on a Virtual PC running Windows XP.  This would allow you to open any old .SRL files from legacy Sepam 2000 relays for viewing.

If your virtualization platform has the correct drivers for your physical computer, you may also be able to connect to a PER2901 programmer to read from Sepam 2000 cartridges.  At the time of this writing, this has not yet been tested or validated using a Windows Virtual PC in XP Mode.
