How to make old programs work on Windows 7

Hi all:

I ran across this today, and since there seem to be a lot of people having trouble with older programs on Windows 7, I thought I'd pass it along.

ACT (Application Compatibility Toolkit) is free from MicroSoft.

Here's the link to the software and some information, too:

You can go into the action center and maintanence, compatability assistant, click troubleshoot programs and select which one you are having trouble with and list the problems, and it should resolve it for you by making them compatible.
