Well I am not sure if this is the 64-bit issue or some instructions issue that only intel supports.

Anyway, I have XP-32 bit installed on AMD Athlon 3800.

Sound Forge 5.0 will install and I can run it.

 

I also have an Intel based macbook running Windows 7 64-bit

Sound Forge 5.0 will install on it.

 

Now I have a laptop with AMD-C60 with Windows 7 64-bit

Sound Forge 5.0 crashes on setup

 

I also have another laptop AMD-C50 running Windows 7 64-bit

Sound Forge 5.0 crashes on setup

 

I can live without it, I actually just really need XFX 1,2,3 plugins installed as they come bundled with Sound Forge 5 and 6 while it was being made by Sonic Foundry.

I thought it was a 64-bit issue but how come it worked on macbook.

If there is something like disable option or enable option maybe that could help but I don't know much about AMD mobile cpu's.  Compatibility mode does not help.  I have installed ACID 1.0 (yes the original release) but that also won't run.

Any assistance appreciated.

Well my only option is to virtualize the environment.  I have an old edition of Virtual PC (2007) and that simply worked with Virtual XP as OS.  I disabled virtualization in settings as that how my XP was originally installed so I just imported virtual machine and Sound Forge setup just fine.
