Wondered if there was some way to use my old programs that ran on Windows XP on Windows 7. When I try to use the setup disk, I keep getting an error at the end of the download.

If you have Windows 7 Professional or Ultimate versions you can use XP mode. That is not available in Windows 7 Starter or Home. But it very easy to use the upgrade any time feature to buy a Windows 7 Professional license and unlock the extra features.

At the end of what download? Please explain EXACTLY what is happening and what specific program we are talking about.

Now that we have two topics merged, it looks like we now know 'what download'?

Microsoft Microsoft Picture It is incompatible with Windows 7.
