    I am trying to install some old DOS games on my laptop using the cmd program but keep getting the error message "cannot run 32bit programs on 64bit OS." then something about contacting software developer or MS.
    I have no idea with win7 as I had little experience with computers after win ME which ran these games no problem.
    Please help me. The simpler the better as I really have no idea.

    You could try DOSBox its command line based (There is a GUI available but can't remember the name of it). There are tutorials available on the website to get you up and running with it.
