Question about Avanquest DataBase Professional for PC
That partly depends on which version of windows 7 you have.
ultimate has the ability to run native XP applications.
I have also had great success running native XP apps on lower versions despite Microsoft saying it is not possible.
Your best option is to try it anyway. office pro was not supposed to run on windows 7 but even the lower versions run it just fine.
Also check the avanquest web site for any support issues with regards that particular software as any work around will be published in he support section on there.

It's the best of both worlds: The new Windows XP Mode lets you run older Windows XP business software right on your Windows 7 desktop.
Designed primarily with small- and medium-sized businesses in mind, Windows XP Mode comes as a separate download and works only with Windows 7 Professional, Ultimate, and Enterprise. Windows XP Mode also requires virtualization software such as Windows Virtual PC. Both are available free on the Microsoft website.

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.
