7 Ultimate and 7 Pro have similar setups - right click the program you want to run, select properties and then go to the "Compatibility" tab and select XP compatible.

Yeah it should be fine, although you may need to run the program in "XP Mode", or some other form of compatibility mode.

Agreed with all the above.
If you're having problems, please reply with the program you're having problems with. Beyond the above suggestions, sometimes there are patches, other times Administrative mode needs to be selected.
