  1. Hi,
    Here are a few options-

    If the program runs under DOS, one option is to install DOSBOX ( and run the program from the program.

    A second options is to install the program under XP, and try running the program in compatability mode. (

    Another option is to set up a dual boot system. Instructions can be found at The downside of dual booting is that you will need to reboot your system to switch between operating systems.

    Hope this helps.
