I need to install FutureSplash Animator on Windows 10. But the problem is it kept saying "This app can't run on your PC." Any solutions? Sorry if this is short.

And if none of what Joao and Clay have suggested works, you can always run a compatible version of Windows on a Virtual Machine.

Hi.

 

I've never used FutureSplash, but have you tried using compatibility settings in the properties of an executable file?

Do you really have a 25-year-old SPA file you're trying to edit?

 

Well, given its age, FutureSplash is almost certainly a 16-bit program, which Windows 10 would really prefer not to deal with. But apparently it's possible to force the issue:
