Visit MS-MVP Doug Knox's excellent web site (http://www.dougknox.com/) and click on "Win

First, try installing/running your program using XP's Program Compatibility Wizard:
Start > Programs > Accessories > Program Compatibility Wizard
The Program Compatibility Wizard:
This wizard prompts you to test your program in different modes (environments) and with
various settings. For example, if the program was originally designed to run on Windows
95, set the compatibility mode to Windows 95 and try running your program again. If
successful, the program will start in that mode each time. The wizard also allows you to
try different settings, such as switching the display to 256 colors and the screen
resolution to 640 x 480 pixels.
If compatibility problems prevent you from installing a program on Windows XP, run the
Program Compatibility Wizard on the setup file for the program. The file may be called
Setup.exe or something similar, and is probably located on the Installation
