I'd again suggest to install Anim8or under some operating system under VirtualBox or VMware. If you can't install Windows I would suggest some lighter (yet simply enough for novice to use) variant of Linux either Lubuntu or single CD version of PCLinuxOS + WINE under VirtualBox but I'm not sure while if you're afraid of installing virtualization software and not willing to try out some of out previous suggestions that we'll be able to help you further online.

Another idea is to repartition your drive and install some Linux flavour at the side of your current system, but I think it's not the thing you'd like to do alone. You might look for somebody who knows a bit more about OSes and show this forum thread to him/her so that this person will be able to create for you setup mentioned in this thread. If that person will have more questions please post them this thread. I may be able to help a little bit with the WINE setup, because I was running Anim8or in Linux a while ago.

I don't like virtualization software. Any other ideas?

Sorry to bump an old topic, but I just got a new laptop with W7 home and Anim8or runs just fine. Suggest those who have problems running Anim8or to try the option to use the run for XP service pack 3 compatibilty option. I was able to also install ASL Editor too without problems. Leroy: W7 seems to run most 32 bit apps just fine. I also got Truespace 7.61 Beta 8 installed too. Sorry, couldn't resist pimping TS 3d as it's still my favorite modeling software. Leroy.

It appears to be an Intel HD on a Compaq Presario CQ57. Haven't had any problems so far; knock on wood right? I also like the wide screen format layout too. W7, seems to run my 32 bit apps very nicely.
