I still use Visio Home 3. It came with my first Windows computer in December 1995.

And ... believe it or not, it works with Windows 7!

Windows 8 Pro x64

I still play SimCity 2000 Special Edition occasionally. Released around 1995, and works flawlessly in Windows 7 x64 without even having to turn on compatibility mode.

I still have Alley Cat on my XP machine. It was from the original floppy disc back in the 80s - lost track of how many pcs it was transferred over, lol. Haven't tried it on win7 though. Don't really have any productivity software, everything gets replaced eventually, although I do remember using ACDSee 1.3 for quite a long time.
