For years I have been using "outdated" applications including Goldmine 6.7 quite happily with XP in spite of all inducements to upgrade.  With now the threat to XP forcing the likes of myself to contemplate a move to Windows 7, the question arises whether some or all of these apps will continue to work or will have to be upgraded. With the variant that apparently you can also run W7 in compatibility mode.  32-bit and / or 64-bit ...

 

I asked a vendor about how GM 6.7 (or a later interim version) would perform with either of the two OS but the answer (if I would be forced to upgrade to the latest version) was not totally clear cut.  Ideally I would stay as close to what I've got as possible on the "if it ain't broke" principle coupled with avoiding the hassle of migrating data from one application to another.  Can anyone shed any light on how I stand and what my options are?  Tks
