The Longbow Reviver makes old Windows XP programs install and run again in Windows 10, Windows 7, Windows 8, Windows 8.1 and Vista

NOTE: This tool is not intended for use with AutoCAD

The Longbow Reviver V4 

An extremely useful tool for people with old Windows XP applications that will not run anymore on Windows 10, Windows 7, Windows 8, Windows 8.1 or Windows Vista, both 32bit or 64bit. 

The Longbow Reviver overrides the various compatibility issues and restrictions that Windows 10, 
Windows 7, Windows 8 and Windows Vista impose on older Windows XP compatible programs so that you can install, run and use your older 32bit Windows XP (and older) programs again. 

It also fixes Windows BEX errors too!

The Longbow Reviver makes your old XP programs compatible with Windows 7 and Windows 8 

NEW!! 16bit installer support!!

Some older Windows 95, Windows 98, Windows NT or Windows XP programs use 16bit programs to install their application runtime - running the setup.exe from a particular installation media may give the following error...

"The version of this file is not compatible with the version of Windows you're running. Check you computer system information to see whether you need an x86 (32-bit) or x64 (64-bit) version of the program, and then contact the software publisher."

"This app can't run on your PC. To find a version for your PC , check with your software publisher"

Fix this issue in 2 minutes the latest Longbow Reviver tool! NOTE: This feature only works with setup.exe style installation programs.  

Gain more 32bit application memory with the Large Memory Addressing Feature!!

When installing your 32bit application on Windows 64bit, even though your 64bit computer has huge amounts of memory compared to your old 32bit computer, your 32bit application will still only use 2GB of memory. Configure your 32bit application so that it will then be capable of using up to 4GB of RAM on a 64bit system, instead of the age old and restrictive 2GB limit using the Longbow Reviver Large Memory Addressing feature!

      Windows 8 Compatibility         
 
 No more Out of Memory errors!!! 

(NOTE: This tool also works on Windows 32bit, however, the system must be configured to use the /3GB switch in order to increase limit to 3GB of RAM per process)

Override Windows 10, Windows 7, Windows 8 and Windows 8.1 64bit Device Driver Signing Verification (Disable Driver Signature Enforcement)

If you are trying to install a 32bit application (that requires installing vital device drivers) on 64bit Windows you are probably finding it difficult to get it working. This is because Windows 64bit requires drivers to be signed and verified otherwise they won’t install. Using the Longbow Reviver you can install non-signed device drivers on Windows 64bit by Disabling Driver Signature Enforcement!!
