Question about Computers & Internet
Getting older programs to run on Windows XP
Getting older programs to run on
run properly on Windows XP. The exceptions are some older games and other
programs that were
written specifically for an earlier version of Windows. To run your
program on Windows XP, try the following:
The Program Compatibility Wizard This wizard prompts you to test your program in different modes (environments) and with various settings. For example, if the program was originally designed to run on Windows 95, set the compatibility mode to Windows 95 and try running your program again. If successful, the program will start in that mode each time. The wizard also allows you to try different settings, such as switching the display to 256 colors and the screen resolution to 640 x 480 pixels.
If compatibility problems prevent you from installing a program on Windows XP, run the Program Compatibility Wizard on the setup file for the program. The file might be called Setup.exe or something similar, and is probably located on the Installation disc for the program.
