    Compatibility - old operationg system


    I have an old software program on cd. It required Windows 98, Windows 2000, Windows Me or Windows XP. My laptop has Windows 10 and I am looking for advice on how to get the program to work. I'm not sure of the steps to use the compatibility feature. Any advice would be appreciated. Thanks!

    :)

    Is this compatible?

    I think I have narrowed down my mobo selection to the ASUS P5N32-E SLI Plus but, the reviews suggest checking the Qualified Vendors List for memory on the ASUS site as this board can be particular. The information is not currently available. It was suggested in one review that the compatiblity of memory to this board on their list was not accurate. Many other reviews suggest no problems with memory compatibility.

    Can anyone tell me if the Corsair XMS2 2gb (2x1gb)- DDR2/800 Twin2X2408-6400 would work troule free on this ASUS board?

    Another question....I am planning to use an Intel Core 2DUO E6400 Conroe 2.13ghz on this board. What the heck do I use for a heatsink? There are so many to choose from and I know nothing about them....

    Thanks, Chirp

  3. Wanting to run old games

    Hi Jameson,

    Welcome to Microsoft Community. Your interest in Windows 10 is much appreciated.

    I would suggest you to refer the below link and check the compatibility of the game with Windows 10.

    http://www.microsoft.com/en-us/windows/compatibility/CompatCenter/Home

    You may also try installing the game in compatibility mode.
    Follow these steps to install the game software in compatibility mode and check if that helps.


          • Right-click on the game setup file and click on
            ‘properties’.

          • Click on the ‘compatibility’ tab and check the box
            ‘Run this program in compatibility mode for’ and select Windows 8 operating system from the drop down menu and proceed with the installation. Once this is done, restart the computer and check if the issue persists.
    If the issue still persists, I would suggest you to get in touch with the game manufacturer if it’s specific to that particular game.

    Keep us posted if you face any issues on windows in future. We will be glad to help you.

  4. Compatibility - old operationg system

    Compatibility problems

    Hi,

    Welcome to Microsoft Community and thank you for posting your query. Your interest in Windows 10 is much appreciated.

    This issue might be due to corrupted or missing System files.

    I suggest you to perform the below troubleshooting steps and check.

    Method 1: Run the SFC.

    System File Checker is a utility in Windows that allows users to scan for corruptions in Windows system files and restore corrupted files.

    Follow the below steps:


    • Right click on the Start button, click on
      Command Prompt (Admin).

    • Type “sfc /scannow” without quotes and hit
      Enter.

    • After the scan, restart the computer.

    • Now check for the issue.

    Also, I suggest you to check with the compatibility of the program on Windows 10.

    Windows Compatibility Center

    Hope this information is helpful. Kindly update the status of the issue, we will be happy to help you.
