What was the name of the program that would not run in Windows 7? Did you try and run under compatibility mode?

Compatibility Mode

Does the software require huge amounts of resources? If yes you might want to reinstall as it could be corrupted somewhere since 7 has a massive list of compatability db. If no and reinstall doesn't work may I suggest using an alternative like a virtual computer @ emulators.

What version of Windows 7 does your friend have? If Pro/Ultimate, its possible to run under WinXP Virtual machine in Windows 7.

How do I get a much needed prgram to work with windows 7 that worked - Microsoft Community
