A second options is to install the program under XP, and try running the program in compatability mode. (http://www.microsoft.com/windowsxp/using/helpandsupport...) Another option is to set up a dual boot system. Instructions can be found at http://support.microsoft.com/kb/306559. The downside of dual booting is that you will need to reboot your system to switch between operating systems. Hope this helps. PD Can't find your answer ? Ask !
