Another idea would be to set up VM Ware and install XP on a virtual PC. Then load your software on that. I have done this to use an older scanner that there are no drivers for Windows 7. Works well!
Thank you for the suggestions! I shall have a look into them and hopefully they'll help!

I went down the virtual machine route as i had the scanner and an old Desk Top publishing softawre that was built for Windows 95 which I didn't even bother to try in compatibility mode as others had tried and failed. Works perfectly in my Win XP on the virtual machine though. Happy to give you a run down on VM if you wish! If your software worked in Win XP before I am 99.9% certain it will work as is on the Virtual Machine with XP installed!

If I get it running on a virtual machine with XP, how will I be able to use this to get it to run on windows 7 though? Sorry if I'm just not understanding properly!
Also, I tried compatibilty mode on windows 7 and the program wasn't listed. I couldn't find the shortcut for it when I tried to browse...hmm...

You won't be able to run this software on Windows 7. It is not compatible. Just use it on the Win XP setup as you have before. It really is no different to running your old PC with Win XP. It mighht help if we knew roughly what this software does. Does it produce a document, a drawing, an image or what? What do you do with the end result, send it to someone else or what?

I would stick with the Virtual Machine route then!

I would not suggest placing a DLL from an XP edition of windows into a Windows seven set up. Well simply just check out which is working. how could you possibly know that the DLL is not working properly.

One of my friends has a practice of changing the status of DLLs to "read-only" on Windows OS (7 and XP). He recommends doing this immediately after installation for security i.e. in order to prevent malware execution. Does that sound like a good idea, or do DLLs need stay writeable, in order...
