  1. UPDATE: I installed Oracle's VirtualBox, and now have a virtual Win XP running. I installed the Concord program in that Win XP VM, and it's working fine. Thanks to everyone for their ideas!
  2. nigsy: Thanks, I'm beginning to think that VMware may be the best solution too. I think I have a legal Win XP I can load - but if I can find an old copy of Windows 95, it actually might be fun to run that. Of course, I'd love to avoid all that if possible.
  3. If anyone was sitting on the edge of their seats, wondering if DosBox worked for me (I mentioned that I'd try it last night): No, I didn't bother. I came across this at the very bottom of the "Discussion" page for DosBox (http://www.dosbox.com/wiki/Talk:Basic_Setup_and_Installation_of_DosBox): ## "This Program Requires Microsoft Windows" I followed the instructions to set up a game and it said "This Program Requires Microsoft Windows". I am using Windows 7 64 bit. The game was made for 16-bit Windows 95 or 98 I think. Please help!! The game is called SimLife. that message is c
  4. TomGL2- I've already installed the patch, as Administrator (V 1.0.05 in the About window). It fixes other things, but doesn't fix this problem. Thanks anyway! Other things I've tried: Uninstalled, then re-install as Administrator and install 1.0.05 patch as Administrator. Also tried running as Administrator using every option in the Compatibility Mode list. Always get the same behavior. If DosBox will run an old Windows program, I'll try that tonight when I get home. (Btw, I *did* RTFM for DosBox, "Joe C". It doesn't say specifically that it will run anything other than old DOS
  5. The program is called "Concord for Windows". It is a book research program published by my church and recently abandoned in favor of a web-based subscription research tool. I'm perfectly satisfied with the old program and would rather not pay $$$ per month if I don't have to for the same functionality. The program comes with a set of books written by the founder of my religion, and also includes the King James version of The Bible as well. It has a feature that allows you to create a list of references ("citations") to any of the books that can be stepped through to read them in order.
  6. Joe C- Thanks for the DosBox suggestion. However, I realize now that I left out an important fact: It's a Windows program, I think originally written for Windows 95. -Dan-
  7. I have an old 16-bit program (circa 1995) that runs fine on two different Windows 7 Professional 64-bit computers. However, I can't get it to run properly on my new Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit laptop. About 90% of the program's functionality seems to work fine, but the 10% that isn't working is the most critical to me. I've diddled around with all the "compatibility mode" settings for running the program and none of them do anything. I've also tried moving older versions of some DLLs to the program's home folder, but that had no effect either. Any and all suggestions welcome! L
