If the program is not compatible, then you may try to install and run the program in compatibility mode.
Use the following steps:
1) Right click on the Program
2) Click on Properties
3) Click on Compatibility tab
Run this program in compatibility mode and select Windows Vista or
whatever operating system the program was running successfully.
Refer to the link here: Make older programs run in this version of Windows
If the compatibility is not successful, then try and runthe Program Compatibility troubleshooter:
1. Open the Program Compatibility troubleshooter by clicking theStart button.
Then click Control Panel. In the search box, type troubleshooter, and then clickTroubleshooting. Under Programs, clickRun programs made for previous versions of Windows.
2. Follow the instructions in the troubleshooter.
you cannot install a program, insert the installation disc for the
program and, using the troubleshooter, browse to the program's setup
file, usually called Setup.exe, Install.exe, or something similar. The
troubleshooter is not designed to work on programs that have an .msi
file name extension.
If you run Windows 7 Professional or Ultimate version, install Windows Virtual PC and Windows XP mode (http://www.microsoft.com/windows/virtual-pc/default.aspx) and execute your software in Windows XP.
If you run Windows 7 Home Premium, try VirtualBox (www.virtualbox.org) or VMware Player (www.vmware.com) and install a separate copy of Windows XP (either Home Edition or Professional) for that purpose.You can find virtualization software free of charge that will run on Windows 7 Home Premium.
Hope this helps.
