Mathcad 13 installs but won't run on Windows 7. Mathcad 14 won't install on Windows 7. Any solutions?


Run it in the compatibility mode. Right-click on the executable, choose "properties", then the "Compatibility" tab. Check "Run this program in compatibility mode for". Choose the latest version of Windows the program ran on, check the screen setting that applies for your application and click "OK". Now you can start the application!
