Running Legacy Application

Currently running Windows 7 Ultimate. I am trying to run a legacy application made for XP, right clicked on the installer and checked off to run in compatibility mode however after trying to install the application, I was met with several different error messages pertaining to missing dll's etc. Am I missing something here?

Any Assistance is appreciated

I just was reading up on this. Sadly my PC doesn't support Hardware Virtualization. The update they have on the site to remove the requirement wont allow me to install either. I guess a VMware setup is needed at this point

I had to go into bios to enable it.
