XP Compatibility Issues

Old programs don't work with Windows XP ?

Maybe all is not lost.

If you get an incompatible message while trying to 

install an old favorite program on Windows XP, there 

is one trick you can try. Right click on the setup.exe 

file and click on properties, then click on the 

Compatibility tab. Check the

"run this program in compatibility mode for" and select

one of the older Windows versions that your program once
worked under. Install the program as usual. If, after 

installation, the program doesn't run or you get some 

other problem, just follow the same steps as above except

right click on the program file that actually opens and 

runs the application ( usually something like the name
of the application .exe ). Set this file to the same compatibility

mode as before.  Good luck.
