Welcome!

What program is it? Try right-clicking on it, and selecting Properties. In the Compatibility tab, try running in compatibility for XP.

What error message does it give when you try to run the program?

"The version of this file is not compatible with the version of Windows you're running. Check your computer's system information to see whether you need an x86(32bit) or x64(64bit) version of the program, and then contact the software publisher"---

Have you tried selecting "Troubleshoot compatibility"?

If it still won't run in compatibility mode for XP, I think you're out of luck.

If you have the Profession edition or higher, you can create a virtual XP machine: Download Windows XP Mode
