  1. check for Windows compatible versions.

    I know winrar is avalable.

    look into Vitual PC. It will run a copy of XP in VM mode
  2. ok thanks i will look it probably sounds silly by now but i havent used windows 7 yet bc i dont have my new pc yet. still using xp sp3 looking forward to windows 7. my vaio doesnt support 7 not enough memory 1.25gb is max for it. will be getting the asus g72gx or the gateway p7815u for my replacement. have a ton of programs but don't know if they are 7 usable or not. thanks for the comment though.
  3. I have yet to run into a problem with backwards compatibility, even running FF7. As far as I know, there have been no issues with backwards compatibility with either Vista or XP. If there is, I'm quite sure that there'll be an update fairly soon to fix that.
  4. that's encouraging news! have an extensive library of games and programs so i hope they run smooth with the new o.s. i have ff8 but not ff7 sure brings back memories of the playstation. good times.....
  5. is it true that xp support from microsoft will end in 2014?
