Is Microsoft work Suite compatible with Windows 7

  ozzymodo 19:07 18 Sep 2012

Hi all,. My wife has a new laptop running Windows 7 and has migrated from Xp (which she loved) I have transferred most of her files and she now has a problem. Before on the xp laptop she used to work with Microsoft works Suite 2001that ran Microsoft Works 6.0 and mainly the Picture It part of the suite using the Picture It, Publishing 2001 Set up Design and Art. She still likes this prog as she is very comfortable with it and it does just what she wants it to do. The problem was that when she went to open one of her files it was a php file and tho she has got Office 2007 on her new pc it will not open the file. I tried to install the worksuite 2001 onto the new pc from the original discs that we have and after a while an error comes up unable to load dll file ?? Does this mean it is not compatible and if so can anyone reccomend a (free if possible) program that we can use to open/use the php files

Kind regards Ian n Jackie

The actual error message says (after it says it installed it ok and requested a restart) Setup is unable to ofind SETUP.DLL which is needed to complete the installation Error 103

I have tried to run/install in compatible mode

Works is one of Microsofts abject failures, not 100% compatible with anything. I dont know if it is usable on Win 7

I dont know of anything that will open the files but I'm sure somebody here will do.

The Microsoft compatibility page for Windows7 shows that Picture It 2001 is not compatible.
