I tried accessing a old baking program that I have on my new laptop w/windows 7. I used to be able to open program with XP windows. Its properties are asking to open using a windows shell commor, what does this mean? Thanks. Paul M.
Try right clicking the file and click to run in Compatibility Mode for XP - that might be enough to make it fly right. Some programmes simly won't run in Windows 7 if the developers chose to promote more recent versions and want you to spend more money on those.
