  •  Try Running the Software In Earlier Windows Mode: (5+ / 0-)

    Right click on the software shortcut icon and under properties there is a "compatibility" box. Up near the top is a box letting you choose to run the software under an earlier version of windows.

    After you click the box, a list will open up letting you choose from a sizeable list of windows versions from XP all the way back to win 2000 and even win 95.

    There's a fair chance this will let your software work.

    I understand your pain about printers and scanners. We added a Win 7 computer and it's got just no ability to use 2 of our 3 functions. Very infuriating.  

    Plus, no matter what permissions I set on the Win 7 machine, my XP Home machine cannot gain access across the home LAN to any Win 7 folders or files.

      I'll try that when I finish my report. Word 2003 still works fine, so I can still get my work done.

      Let there be light. Then let there be a cat, a cocktail, and a good book.
