Program crashes caused by truncation from 64-bit to 32-bit during execution can be resolved by implementing the following steps:

  1. Switch to a 64-bit operating system: This is the easiest solution if the hardware supports it. By running the program on a 64-bit operating system, the truncation problem will be eliminated.

  2. Update the code: The program code can be updated to handle 32-bit and 64-bit data, so it does not truncate when a 64-bit data is encountered. This will require updating data types, API calls, and any other code that interacts with 64-bit data.

  3. Use compatibility mode: Some operating systems offer compatibility mode that allows the execution of a 32-bit program on a 64-bit system. However, this mode is not always reliable, and some programs may still crash.

  4. Use virtualization: Virtualization software allows the execution of a program inside a virtual machine with a 64-bit operating system. This will avoid the truncation problem since the program is running on a 64-bit system.

  5. Use a different library or framework: If the program is using a library or framework that is not compatible with 64-bit data, switching to a different library or framework can solve the problem.

Overall, program crashes caused by truncation from 64-bit to 32-bit can be resolved by switching to a 64-bit operating system, updating the code, using compatibility mode, using virtualization or using a different library or framework.
