'puter help

Got some software, a data base with an index that was designed to run on Windows 95. It'll run on 98 too but anything newer and it doesn't work.

Need to acess some of the files but since I don't have a machine running 95 or 98 anymore, I'm sitting here scratching my head.

I know there's a way around this but my mind is drawing a blank.

Re: 'puter help

Have you tried running it in compatability mode?

Re: 'puter help

Right click on the desk top icon and go to compatability and select what you need. This usually works and hopefully it will work for you.
