Running Older Programs

Some older programs are designed to run on earlier versions of Windows and don't work properly on Windows XP. You can set the compatibility of Windows XP to act like an earlier version of Windows to run an older program.

Set Compatibility for anOlder Program

Click the Start button, and then locate the older program.

Right-click the program you want to run, and then click Properties.

Click the Compatibility tab.

Select the Run This Program In Compatibility Mode For check box.

Click the list arrow, and then click the version of Windows in which the program was designed.

Select the check boxes for applying the appropriate settings to the display, based on the program's documentation.

Click OK.
