Windows 7: Compatibility

Compatibility

I have Windows 7 Home Premium and my computer is 64bit. I have a CD to install Mavis Beacon Typing tutorial. I used to use it on my old computer. But now I thought I would brush up on my typing so I tried to install it. However, a message popped up telling me that it is not compatible with 64bit. Isn't there some feature in Windows 7 where I can make it compatible?

there is a compatibility mode alright but that, as far as i know, is just for installing a programe that is not compatible with windows 7, or if you think a program or app will run better on an older version, for example xp or 2000

im sure there is a way around it tho, im just not 100 cement

You may have to upgrade, buy, to a new version.

Or use XP Mode. This will run windows XP in a virtual machine along with Win 7. You will need Windows 7 Ultimate, Professional or Enterprize to use it though.

See the Windows 7 compatibility list:

Windows 7 Compatibility: Software Programs & Hardware Devices: Find Updates, Drivers, & Downloads

According to it, the "25th Anniversary" version is compatible. As upgrades go, it's not ridiculously expensive.
