I have a few old software programs (e.g. Microsoft Works 4.0) that I want to install on my Windows 8.1. computer. Would such software work? Alternatively, is there a way to make old programs run on Windows 8.1?
I am running many programs I used on Win 95 without problems on win 7/8/8.1/ and 10 preview. These include Lotus WordPro.
To install put the disc in drive and open it don't auto install.
Find the setup file and right click, choose setup as admin. Then ignore the prompts.
I have no problems running the programs, and use the same methods installing older printers.
On 8.1 I have installed
Coral print and photo house
just to name a few
