You could try running it in a compatibility mode. Look at the link below.

There is lots of information on this topic. Google for Windows 7 compatibility wizard.

It may run on 32 bit windows but not 64 bit.

If you have 32 bit then be sure to run not only the installer in compatibility mode but the the program. I have found that running the installer also seems to help sometimes.

If you have 64 bit OS then it won't run native or in compatibility mode.


There is a way to run a virtual machine and it may be free if you own a top end windows 7 version. Free ones that work on lower need an old copy of windows 95 or what every you used to run. You or someone may have a copy that you could use.

I sometimes convert old computers to virtual machines to import them on newer OS's. The old computer you used to use may be converted.
