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.<br /> <br /> You can find more about this Compatibility issue on <a href="http://windows.microsoft.com/en-AU/windows-vista/Make-older-programs-run-in-this-version-of-Windows">http://windows.microsoft.com/en-AU/windows-vista/Make-older-programs-run-in-this-version-of-Windows</a>

Running ubuntu on (old!) hp e-pc 42; need Windows. Would it be worthwhile installing Vista? How about 7? Thanks.


Based on the specs of your computer I don't recommend that you upgrade to either one of those. You would not want to use Vista because it would run really slow on your computer, and Vista itself is not very good. And if you can't run Vista, you most likely can't run Windows 7 because it requires even more than Vista.

I recommend that you use Windows XP, not only because aside from Windows 7 and Snow Leopard it is my favorite Operating System, it is also the OS that was originally shipped with that specific model computer.

Short answer: Go with Windows XP

Hope this helps!

Slow computer


If you are running Windows XP/Vista/7:
1. Identify programs that auto-starts with 'msconfig.exe'
2. Identify applications currently running with 'taskmgr.exe'
In case of Vista, upgrade to 7.

Old program won't run on new computer win XP but runs on others


> ran slow

Probably, having more RAM would make VMWARE run faster.

> except Sound Laundry 2.5

Check the manufacturer's web-site -- surely, they have a version which *DOES* work as a "native" application under Windows XP and Windows VIsta and Windows 7, i.e., no need for "compatibility settings".

Unable to load autocad 97 on windows vista


I don't believe Autocad will work at all on Windows Vista.

The only other solution I can think of is to download Virtual Box from http://www.virtualbox.org/

You will need to have an XP cd to install, and basically you will be installing an XP virtual machine, at which time you can then install Autocad 97 onto that virtual machine.

Hope this helps!
