Question about Dell I531S-2809 PC Desktop
You need two things: 1) the emulator software "VMware" which is a free download from https://my.vmware.com/web/vmware/free#desktop_end_user_computing/vmware_player/5_0'PLAYER-501'product_downloads
It will set aside a number of GB (you can specify how much) on your hardrive as though it is a separate and EMPTY new computer.
2) You need to install the OS you wish to emulate on this new virtual computer. I recently 'installed' an old original copy of Windows 98 on my laptop (factory configured with Windows 7 Home x64 bit) to run an old 16-bit software program that worked fine on XP, but simply would not install on Win7 no matter what compatability settings I tried. VMware works and is free for non-commercial users. Also, I recommend dowloading the vmware tools when it asks--it makes setting up graphics and audio in your virtual computer much easier...

You will have to try using compatability mode to load and use these applications.
Below is a link to Microsoft's support site that outlines how to use compatability mode to load legacy (older) applications.
