Hello dai:

First, let me say 'wow' to such an old and obscure piece of software! =)
A quick cursory Google search of '1881 British Census' yields a very nice web page with basic text and a wallpapered image in the background. It made me smile.

Regardless, let's get down to it. And pay close attention, because the answer to this question will very likely determine if you have any hope at all. What version of Windows 7 are you running?
Post back here soon and let me know. =)

Thanks!

Dai, unfortunately for you, you will not have an easy solution to get this program to run. If you were running Windows 7 Professional or higher, you'd be able to download XP mode and run your program just fine. Since that is not the case, you have two options: either upgrade your edition of Windows or find a way to dual boot your system with your old XP license. You can find a basic guide to doing this here: http://lifehacker.com/5126781/how-to-dual-...ith-xp-or-vista

Good luck! So sorry there wasn't an easy fix that I could come up with.

[EDIT] Nice Welsh, by the way. How are things in the Valley? =)
