Does anyone know if it is possible to run Microsoft Work Suite on XP, I have changed from ME where it did work to XP where most of it doesn't. I can get Money to work but not the Autoroute,Picture it photo progs, Encarta. When I was installing the discs there was no indication of any problems but when I try and use these programmes I get a blank screen and it freezes. Is there a solution to this problem or is it buy a new version

xp does have a compatability mode for running older software. It should work being a ms prog. Cannot be sure as I do not use works.

tried PC Bilbo suggestion but it still doesn't work, it does mention that the programme should work with the compatability wizard but I couldn't make it make. It kept asking me to change screen resolution from 1024 to 800 but then it wanted to changed back to 1024, couldn't work it out. Any more help would be appreciated.
