If you have Windows 8 and not 8.1 people have said it is compatible. This was for version 8.5.2
You will need to reinstall the software, but this time, do it using Troubleshoot compatibility
Point to the installation files
Right click the setup file and click 'Troubleshoot compatibility'
Wait while it detects the problem.
Click the option 'Worked in a previous version of Windows'
Select Windows 7 RTM
Click Start the program, wait while it installs
When installation is complete, click Finish and save the settings.
See if it works

Thanks John. The thing I forgot to write in my original post is that I do not have the install disk for Lotus 8.5. Is it possible to transfer the software using an ISO file or similar method? Perhaps you could suggest a way, I am not an advanced computer user. Thanks again.

Any program on one O/S...cannot be "transferred" or otherwise moved to a different O/S or system...only data files can be moved in such manner.
Programs require installation on the second O/S.
It appears that Lotus 8.5 may not be compatible with Windows 8, see http://social.technet.microsoft.com/Forums/windows/en-US/53e6c522-4aa4-4fe1-87f8-194a0e2dd8aa/does-windows-8-support-lotus-notes-852 ,

I thought that I could make an ISO file and then transfer the software Lotus 8.5 to the computer with the Windows 8 O/S.
If that is not possible, if I re-install Lotus 8.5 (I will have to try to find it on a torrent site because I do not have the installation disk) on the Windows 8 computer then I can move over all the Lotus 8.5 data and emails, right?
Thanks for your help.
