IT would appear that Turnpike doesn't work with Windows 7 64 bit version
Does anyone know a workaround
crips with answers like use linux or another email client are welcome to
save their energy and not reply
wow... It's been a long time since I last used Turnpike!
It doesn't surprise me that it won't run on 64 bit Windows. There isn't a
16 bit engine built into it. No workaround available. Change back to 32

There has been a lot of discussion about this in the
demon.ip.support.turnpike newsgroup. The consensus is that you either
need to use some sort of virtualisation or switch to another program,
Well I'll not suggest switching to another email client, Turnpike is the
only application I really missed when I ditched Windows for FreeBSD. The
only idea that comes to mind is that, if your PC has enough memory and CPU
power, you could install VirtualBox on your Windows 7 system and run
Turnpike on Win98 or XP inside that.
Win7 pro includes the XP mode- and that doesn't need a separate copy of
XP. #Lesser' version of W7 do.
to install Win98/Win2K/XP in virtual box etc. then to be legal you need
to have the rights to install the OS.
since it woz MS that broke Win7 in this respect then how much someone
may feel bound by legality is another question.
AIUI Turnpike worked in the last Win7 beta, MS introduced a bug that
broke Turnpike - they were made aware of this, but didn't choose to fix
it before RTM
Yes, especially with something that XP or Vista that "phones home" to
authenticate itself. But if you can lay your hands on an old Win9x CD and
product key things would be a bit less restrictive.
OTOH the 'XP mode' on win 7 option mentioned elsewhere in this thread sounds
like a simpler and cleaner approach.
