Hello,

I just got a newer computer than my old 32 bit Window XP computer. Apparently my version of The Sky will not work on my newer 64 bit Windows 7 unit. Is there a way to get this operating on my new computer?

Thank you,

Paul Martin

Correct. TheSky Version 4, released in 1995 for the Windows 95 operating system, is not compatible with Windows 7 64.

Software Bisque offers TheSky licensees an upgrade to TheSkyX, the latest release.

TheSkyX is available in three Editions: http://www.bisque.com/sc/pages/TheSkyX-Editions.aspx.  (previously called "Levels" in TheSky version 4).

You are eligible to upgrade to TheSkyX Serious Astronomy Edition: http://www.bisque.com/sc/shops/store/Software/TheSkyX+Editions/Serious+Upgrades/default.aspx?PageIndex=0, or TheSkyX Professional Edition: http://www.bisque.com/sc/pages/TheSkyXProUpgrade.aspx#TheSkyXUpgradeOptions.

Hello Dan, Thank you for responding. I have not been able to locate my original disc box as I needed to keep the disc in my laptop for the program to work as needed. For some reason, it never fully loaded all the data like on my past computers. Regardless, I now know it won't work with my latest laptop with Windows 7 and my newest desk top with Windows 8.1. Both are 64 bit systems. To be clear, since I currently own an older The Sky program, I am able to purchase the latest programs at a discounted price? Would I be correct in assuming if I get the box version with DVD, I can load that on both my laptop and desktop, but that would not be possible with the online download? Please clarify how that works and I will place my order for the appropriate version. My The Sky IV, Version 4's serial number is XXXXXXXX.

Thank you,

Paul

Both options allow TheSkyX to be installed on two computers: www.bisque.com/eula.
