Go get yourself another hard drive put each operating system on separate drives and just swap drives.

Probably better to wait a few months and get the free upgrade from windows 7 to windows 10

rather than but windows 8.1 now.

Corel video studio x7 works on my Windows 7. What program are you having problems with and what errors are you getting.
