Hello

I have application that was built to i386 Windows platform. Now my problem is that when I try to run my application in Windows 10 Home (x64 computer) it says that Windows does not support this program. It works fine on three Windows 10 Professional computers which are 64 bit. But in this one computer it doesn't start application.

"Networking features" does that mean it doesn't support my email sending feature?

Did you try to run the app in compatibility mode?

(right mouse-click on your .exe, properties, tab compatibility, choose OS like Windows 7)
