I'm expriencing problems installing old drivers for XP64.
The manufacturers of the peripherals have ceased to support the devices
involved.
In one case, the manufacturer has left that market altogether (despite their
product still being, IMO, the best there is).

At this stage, I think my simplest solution is to move to XP.
Can I buy an upgrade version of XP (32 bit) and install over XP64?
Is there a better solution?

You cannot install XP 32 over XP 64. You will have to reformat the drive and
start over.

You need to do a fresh install.

OK, I'll go with a reformat - I've no data on the PC yet anyway.

Do I have to buy a full version of XP when I'm downgrading from XP64?
A full version will be twice as much as an upgrade pack.

You must - first of all - have something that XP will accept to upgrade, not
sure, but I think Win95 will do, and that will have to be a full version -
if you can still get it?
