Hi 3doz and welcome


I suspect that even if you could get the lic in there it would probably not run. Its an XP app, I suspect it would have more problems than just that. My question is do you have a machine that can run a virtual machine (IE XP mode)?

That would make it easier.

Hi 3doz,

The documents and settings folder form xp does not exist on win7. what you can see is just a symbolic link that points to the new location for the files and folders Display hidden system files and check under

c:\users\username\apps\...

for your missing application folder

But as Ken has said the application may not work at all under win7
