Either dual boot to a xp install or make a virtual machine then install xp and lotus.

Get the files converted to some more common format at first chance.

Hang up and live.

"Copmputer repair resulted in XP being removed"

How about listing your system specs? Why did you upgrade from XP to Win7? Do you have at least 2GB RAM? More would be even better. If not, either upgrade your RAM amount or go back to XP.

You need SmartSuite Millennium Edition 9.8:

Googling is quicker than waiting for an answer....

Then if you have Smartsuite, what is the error when trying to install it to Windows 7?

You can get Openoffice.org as a free office suite. It is compatible with all office formats and can be used to convert one format to another. You can install it complete or whatever components you want.

You have to be a little bit crazy to keep you from going insane.

I think OOO removed the lotus filters a few years ago but it is worth a try.

Hang up and live.

Forgive a Non-Techie. Does Dual Boot mean instal 2 x op systems? Pooter Repairer removed everything on m/c, and reloaded with W 7 Home Premium. I don't have the full XP disc .. It was a (legal) upgrade disc from an older Windows

In reply to Fingers.
I need to refer to already extant documents, I have copied then on a memory stick, but needs the Smart Suite to retrieve the docs.. at least, I think I do (non-techie)

I'm impressed by the goodwill and helpfulness in the results: Can I reply to all your help in one "post"

I Precis'd too much.

XP was transposed from a now deceased PC.

I never had an XP disc, but only an update disc (which I still have) from an earlier Windows.

The PC repair included stripping all content, and loading with W 7 - Not by my choice - apparantly loading XP is no longer allowed(!)

The Error Message is: "Error accessing the System Registry"

Am Trying the IBM Passport Advantage Route - but it seems to expect me to be a "Commercial" or "Government" rep?
