Installation of True Basic V5.5 on 64 bit Laptop

I need to install True Basic Bronze Version 5.5 on my new laptop. It is a 64 bit machine, and I can not seem to get the installation to run. How do I do this?

Comments

Is there a way to get hold of True Basic other than ordering?

I just want to load the program. Do I have to buy a new copy of True Basic? If I do, will it work? This is very frustrating.

The install program is 16-bit which, as you discovered, won't run on a 64-bit OS. You can install it on a 32-bit machine then copy the install directory over to the 64-bit machine or you can load a free virtual machine program (I like VirtualBox), install a 32-bit OS and install from that but if you're just doing that to install TB, that seems like overkill.
