Windows Compatibility Issue for Older Programs

If a program cannot be run under Windows 7 because of compatibility issues you have to right click on the executable file that will start the application and click Properties. Select Compatibility tab and then select the Windows version you know the program worked on before. This way the program will be run as it would run under Windows XP or Vista, 32 bit or 64 bit.
