Aha, I guess you mean a virtual machine (XP within Win 8) as briefly mentioned in #1.

Well done, good to hear and thanks for popping back to let us know.

The software is outdated:

If it is 16 bit software and your new Win 8.1 is a 64 bit then I'm afraid it will never run using a normal install. The only way I could imagine it might run is by using some sort of virtual machine, which is a complication without any guarantee it would work.

Sorry I've not got better news for you. Maybe there is some modern equivalent.

Always pop back and let us know the outcome - thanks

What is the "exact"error message that pops up?

As Derek observes - that software is very old and from seriously way back in time... Calls for help about it do continue to drive here nonetheless; which would seem to speak well of the it, and a shame it hasn't been updated...?
