Like the idea of the Windows Live Suite? Well, if you’ve got a 64-bit computer, you’re out of luck, since it will refuse to install on your system.
Oh no it won’t!
This blog has instructions on how to get it on x64 Windows. It’s not a perfect solution. Basically, it relies on tricking the installer into running on 64-bit Windows and downloading the 64-bit versions of the applications. Normally, the installer won’t run, but with this fix it will run and fail, but will download the installer packages you need, which you can easily run and finish the job.
