How to install or run older programs on Windows 7

Since the release of Windows 7 many of my clients have been asking me about program compatibility and which programs will run on Microsoft's new operating system.

Their concerns were mainly because of Vista not running very well and they thought that they may be in for some of the same type of compatibility problems that Vista had.

Before Windows 7 was released to the public Microsoft said in a statement that "Any program that works on Windows Vista will certainly work on Windows 7"

Microsoft has certainly delivered their promise and much, much more!!!

I tested both the beta and the RC (release candidate) editions of Windows 7. In October of this year I was so impressed with Windows 7 I went out and bought Windows 7 Ultimate.

I was glad i did because Windows 7 is being welcomed with very open arms, people are upgrading so i need to know my may around the operating system.

At first i was weary about programs not installing because of compatibility problems but the procedure to either install a program or get it running when installed is relatively simple and is the same way that Vista uses.

How to install an XP/Vista program on Windows 7

First of all locate the setup or installer file, this will be either in the contents of a CD/DVD (you have to explore the contents of the CD/DVD) under the name "setup" or a downloaded .exe (executable) file.

Right click on the setup file and select "Properties" from the sub menu.

A Properties windows will appear on screen, click on the "Compatibility" tab.
At the bottom of the tab you will see the header "Privilege Level".

Check the box that says "Run this program as an administrator"

Also at the top of the Compatibility tab you will see "Run this program in compatibility mode for:"
Check that box and if you have the option select Windows XP (service pack 3).

Click Apply and then OK and install your program.

NOTE: if you have upgraded from Vista Windows XP mode may not be available depending on how you system was configured.

How to run an installed program on Windows 7

Some programs will install but they won't run on Windows 7. Again this down to compatibility but unlike Vista, Windows 7 has the compatibility mode working down to a tee.

Locate the desktop icon or the program in "All Programs" from the Start Menu or Orb as it's affectionately known today.

Just as in my tip about installing a program it is just the same.

moz-screenshot.pngmoz-screenshot-1.pngmoz-screenshot-2.pngRight click on the icon or file and select "Properties" from the sub menu.

A Properties windows will appear on screen, click on the "Compatibility" tab.
At the bottom of the tab you will see the header "Privilege Level".

Check the box that says "Run this program as an administrator"

Also at the top of the Compatibility tab you will see "Run this program in compatibility mode for:"
Check that box and if you have the option select Windows XP (service pack 3).

Click apply and then OK and run the program.

NOTE: Again, if you have upgraded from Vista Windows XP mode may not be available depending on how you system was configured.

Sometimes you will get a message that says "This program may not have installed correctly, Reinstall using recommended settings and This program installed correctly"

It's up to you what you do from here, if the program works choose the latter. If your not too sure click on Reinstall using recommended settings"

So far (and i keep my fingers crossed) i have absolutely no problem in getting a program installed and running on Window 7. I will however provide more tips as and when they surface.

Please be aware that not all programs will work on Windows 7. These are programs which are mainly pre-XP like programs designed for Windows 2000, Windows 98/95.

Where i can get software for C Programing language and what is the software name...........?

STEP 1 : Download the Borland Compiler
STEP2 : Run the setup program
By default, it should install everything to C:\Borland\BCC55

STEP 3 : Add the /bin directory to the system PATH

>C:\Borland\BCC55\bin\bcc32 OR >c32

After the setup program is run (step 2), a whole bunch of executable programs are placed in a new directory : C:\Borland\BCC55\Bin. This step makes it possible for the Operating System (Windows) to find these new executables by name. If you don't do this, then you will need to specify the full path to bcc32 every time you use it.

To do this on Windows XP
Bring up the Environmental Variables :

•Right Click "My Computer" ( Depending on how your system is set-up, "My Computer" is either on your Desktop or in your Start Menu )
•Select "Properties"
•Activate the "Advanced" Tab
•Click the "Environmental Variables" Button
Append ";C:\Borland\BCC44\bin" to the PATH variable (figure 3-2)

•Select the PATH variable under User Variables
Note: The PATH variable may appear under both System Variables and User Variables. This How-To changes the User Variable.
•Click the EDIT button below the list
•In the "Edit User Variable" box that pops up, move the cursor to the end of the Variable Value field
•Add a semi-colon ";" to the end of the current value
Note: If the value is empty, then you do not need to add a semi-colon
•Add the path "C:\Borland\BCC55\bin" after the semi-colon
•"OK" your way out of the dialogs

STEP 4 : Set up some configuration files
you should create a configuration file for the bcc32 program that tells it where to find its libraries and include files.
•The file should be named bcc32.cfg
•It should be placed in the same bin directory where bcc32.exe is located
•The contents of the file are the command line options for bcc32 stating the location of include files and libraries:

I'm a complete novice on laptops, however my problem is i have a dell inspiron 1501 which came with windows vista. a friend installed windows 7 for me but i want to know did he have the option to go...

If he did an upgrade on the system then your files should be there and intact, if he did a complete instalation the your file are all gone as a new(complete) instalation wil format the harddrive and will delete everything on the HDD.
He could have the option to save your file first befor the new instalation.

Turbo-c++ is not installed in full screen

Hi sagar,

Turbo C++ 3.0 is made for MS DOS 6.22 environment. In windows also we can run Turbo C because windows environment provides all native services of DOS. But in Windows VISTA some of the services are revoked. So to enable them either Vista is to be reconfigured or some add-ins are to me installed.

Other versions those can work in Vista are BOROLAND C++ 4.5, VISUAL C++ 6.0, and Visual Studio 2008. But in all these the graphics header file <graphics.h> will not work. Try to find an appropriate graphics header file or copy graphics.h in the cource directory and use #include "graphics.h" command in your C Program.

Please revert to me if having problems.
