Programs To Run On Windows XP!
Most programs run properly on Windows XP. The exceptions are some older games
and other programs that were written specifically for an earlier version of
Windows. To run your program on Windows XP, try the following:
1. Run the Program Compatibility Wizard. As an alternative, you can set the
compatibility properties manually.
2. Update your program, drivers, or hardware.
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 disc for the program.
To run the Program Compatibility Wizard.
1. Start the Program Compatibility Wizard.
2. Follow the instructions in the wizard.
- To start the Program Compatibility Wizard, click Start, click Help and
Support, click Find compatible hardware and software for Windows XP, and then,
under See Also in the navigation pane, click Program Compatibility Wizard.
