I have a new macbook pro and after installing bootcamp and windows 7 to run a windows only program, every time I try to start the program it says will not support it because needs a 32 bit card and only has an 8. I have gone into the screen resolution and changed it, but still no luck. Is there something I have to do on the mac side to allow the bootcamp to open in 32 bit?

Would be nice to tell us which program or game you're trying to run from Boot Camp and the specs for your MBP?

Also - 32 bit is speaking of color depth. Make sure you have your video card color depth set to the maximum. You do that from the video card control panel which should be available in Windows. Since you didn't provide any other information about your machine, I have no idea which video card you have.

Regards.

Sorry about the lack of info, I am new to this. I just purchased the 15" mcb with all the bells and whistles put in the 8 gig of memory, and I think it has the latest nvidea graphics card

Did you change the color depth as I suggested? Remember, you have to do that from within Windows. And you still didn't provide us with any info...
