This solution details how to deliver a legacy application to Windows 64-bit, using ArcView GIS as an example.

To get around this limitation we will use Cloudpaging to package and deliver ArcView GIS to a 64-bit OS as follows:

  1. Copy the extracted installer (link below) to a Windows 32-bit capture machine.
  2. Use Studio to capture the installation.
  3. In Operating system support, select the desired target OS's
  4. In the fonts tab exclude all legacy .fot fonts.
  5. Set C:\ESRI\AV_GIS30\ARCVIEW\BIN32\arcview.exe as the command line
  6. Optionally capture prefetch and then cloudify the application.

  7. Cloudpage the application to a Windows 64-bit OS:
