Is 32-bit driver possible on 64-bit Windows XP

Posted: 02-04-2009, 06:12 PM
Hi folks,

I've got a question. On my Windows XP (32-bit) machine I have a D-Link
Wi-Fi USB-adapter (DWA-142) installed which works just fine using D-
Link driver. I am going to move to a 64-bit Windows XP soon but there
is a problem because D-Link does not provide 64-bit version of the
driver for the device. I tried to use 32-bit driver inside 64-bit
Windows XP and it failed. Does anyone know the way how to resolve the
issue? (For instance: Is there any 64-bit wrapper on Windows for 32-
bit drivers or anything else?)

Thanks.

64bit operating systems require 64bit drivers. If the manufacturer does not
provide them, your luck has run out..

post. See the link in my sig for more info.
