The compatibility tab isn't to be confusd with XP-Mode (Virtual PC).
Right click on your program's shortcut icon, choose properties.
Click the compatibility tab and check Run this program in compatibility mode for: and choose either XP SP2/XP SP3.
Sometimes i've found running as administrator works but not always.
Hit apply and then try and run the program again.

Okay, thanks. I think that's going to work once I'm able to establish privileged user access. As of now it's blanked out (probably because the program needs to access our server database).
Our IT guy can probably help with this.

So to get Windows XP working in Windows 7 Pro 64 bit, what would you recommend, VirtualBox or VMWare?

Well, now that you mention it...I don't recall SP1 being in the title.
I will try again.

Glad to see my second & sixth post wasn't a complete waste of time.
