I do not know which version of lotus you have, but it is very doubtful it will run on a Windows 7 system which is a 16/32 bit system. Wikipedia says that up to release 4 it ran under DOS, Release 5 was for windows 3.1, 97 edition ran on Windows 95 and millenium edition 98 released in 2002 was the last edition. If you have 97 edition or later it MIGHT run, but better probably to get a copy of Excel.
Windows 7 is the latest operating system developed by Microsoft. It was release a few months ago and in my opinion is one of Microsoft's top operating systems. It is fast, efficient and user friendly.
To check whether you can upgrade to Windows 7, the first thing you should do is download Windows 7 Upgrade Advisor. Save it to your desktop and run it. Follow the installation wizard to install it and then click to launch it. Remember to close all your applications before starting the compatibility check.
After the check completes you wil be presented with a list showing you whether your pc is compatible or not. Look specifically under devices compatibility. Programs is not so important but check to see if you use specific programs that are not compatble.
Also note that 1GHz processor and 1GB fo RAM is recommended for runnining Windows 7, but it can run with 512 or 756 MB RAM adequately.
As I said before Windows 7 is recommended if you are running XP and especially if you are running Vista!
Since October 31, 2013, Windows 7 is no longer available in retail (except for the Professional edition preinstalled):
Windows 7 Starter
Windows 7 Starter is the edition of Windows 7 that contains the fewest features. It is only available in a 32-bit version and does not include the Windows Aero theme. The desktop wallpaper and visual styles (Windows 7 Basic) are not user-changeable. Microsoft originally intended to restrict users of this edition to running three simultaneous applications but this limitation was dropped.This edition was available pre-installed on computers, especially netbooks, through system integrators or computer manufacturers using OEM licenses.
Windows 7 Home Basic
Windows 7 Home Basic was available in "emerging markets", in 141 different countries. Some Windows Aero options are excluded along with several new features. Home Basic, along with other editions sold in emerging markets, include geographical activation restriction, which requires users to activate Windows within a certain region or country.
Windows 7 Home Premium
This edition contains features aimed at the home market segment, such as Windows Media Center, Windows Aero and multi-touch support.
Windows 7 Professional
This edition is targeted towards enthusiasts and small-business users. It includes all the features of Windows 7 Home Premium, and adds the ability to participate in a Windows Server domain. Additional features include support for up to 192 GB of Random-access memory (increased from 16 GB), operating as a Remote Desktop server, location aware printing, backup to a network location, Encrypting File System, Presentation Mode, Software Restriction Policies (but not the extra management features of AppLocker) and Windows XP Mode.
Windows 7 Enterprise
This edition targeted the enterprise segment of the market and was sold through volume licensing to companies which have a Software Assurance contract with Microsoft. Additional features include support for Multilingual User Interface(MUI) packages, BitLocker Drive Encryption, and UNIXapplication support. Not available through retail or OEMchannels, this edition is distributed through Microsoft Software Assurance (SA). As a result it includes several SA-only benefits, including a license allowing the operating of diskless nodes (diskless PCs) and activation via VLK.
Windows 7 Ultimate
Windows 7 Ultimate contains the same features as Windows 7 Enterprise, but unlike the Enterprise edition, it was available to home users on an individual license basis. Windows 7 Home Premium and Windows 7 Professional users are able to upgrade to Windows 7 Ultimate for a fee using Windows Anytime Upgrade if they wish to do so. Unlike Windows Vista Ultimate, the Windows 7 Ultimate edition does not include the Windows Ultimate Extras feature or any exclusive features as Microsoft had stated.
All editions will receive Mainstream Support (new features and bug fixes) until January 2015 and Extended Support (security updates) until January 2020.
You should consider the amount of RAM (how fast the computer runs) I would recommend a minimum of 2GB , then also the amount of HD space (the memory you can store things on like pictures videos and music) I would recommend a minimum of about 250GB or more if you have a lot of pictures and videos or like downloading a lot. You also need to consider the screen size , most screens are about 15-17 Inches but if it's a Apple iMac like mine you can get a lot bigger screens with a maximum of 27 inches which is HUGE! but those are usually EXTREMELY expensive and are usually used for video editing , games and designing. So i would recommend about a 17-19 inch screen depending on what you want to use it for. Then there is also what OS (Operating System) you want but before you can choose that you need to know if you want a Apple iMac or a Windows PC . Once you have chosen you can get an iMac with the latest OS Snow Leopard or if you choose Windows you should look for Windows 7 the latest from Windows. Also what sort of disk drive it has e.g. DVD re-writable or a light-scribe but those cost a lot. Then there's the processor i would recommend Intel . And lastly the amount of ports e.g. USB , Memory cards. Check how many USB ports there are those are the most commonly used ones.
Thanks and I hope this helps. ;)
Yes you can, make sure you switch the BIOS to IDE instead of AHCI.
clay58, you have no clue what you are talking about, Windows 7 is "okay", but XP is not "out of date, defunct"...Win XP is the most used OS in the world. None of my printers or DSLR cameras are supported in 7, only XP. So yes you can downgrade, I have done so.
