Old program

I have an old program built on Microsoft access (Loft Pro) that I use in my hobby of pigeons, but xp is the last OPS it will run on how can I go to find someone to help me move forward, the company that created Loft Pro is no longer active


If the program works with Windows XP, there is at least a decent chance that you can make it work with Windows 7.

Windows 7 has a number of compatibility features that could help--> http://www.pcworld.com/article/255507/run_xp_software_in_windows_7.html

Windows 7 also has a "program of compatibility convenience store," that might help.

Finally, if you have Windows 7 Pro or Ultimate, you can get XP Mode, which is running XP on a virtual machine in Windows 7 (see PC World's article above).

However, you must realize that XP Mode, like genuine XP, will be no longer supported after April 2014.  The main problem with the discontinuation of the support is that Microsoft will provide more security updates.  So, if you continue to use XP after April 2014, there will be greater risk that your computer - if connected to the Internet - will be subject to attack.  If your old program does not need to access the Internet, running using XP Mode should be safe.  Or, if your old program does not need to access the Internet, you just dedicate an old computer to run and not connect to this computer to the Internet.

    How do you start the Windows XP installation. First start XP and go inside the computer and click the CD drive icon.
    Are you sure that you format the HARD drive when it offers you the possibility to do? Cause if during installation you have not selected the option that shows the drive using NTFS Format, then all programs will always be there and will continue to occupy a lot of space on the hard disk.

  • Can I run an old program BACK under Vista?

    Is it possible to run an old program BACK on a Vista operating system. either 32 or 64 bit?

    I found a simple painless 3rd party open source solution. It is simply done by running a BACK EMU called Dosbox.

    Use the latest version of www.dosbox.com.

    Read the easy to understand by the Doc for the command line interface commands. Worked perfectly the first time to run an old (something 80) BACK ASCII B & W strategy game that I use to start BACK on a 4 platform mghz v3.2 clone IBM XT.

  • I have Lightroom 5.1 installed on my Mac.  I want to install the package CC photographers.  Should I uninstall my old program of lightroom? Thank you!

    I have Lightroom 5.1 installed on my mac.  I want to install the package CC photographers and wasn't sure

    If I need to uninstall first my old program LR.  Thank you!

    [Left the general forum, troubled Lounge for a support forum - Mod]

    It is not necessary to uninstall your current version first. In fact, it would probably be a good idea to leave it installed until you are certain you have everything works the way that you want with the new facility. When you install Lightroom CC 2015 it will prompt you to allow him to create a new copy of your catalog. You should allow this to happen. Then the new Lightroom should pick up right where you left it. Once you are sure that everything has been installed correctly and you no longer need the old version you can then uninstall it. Both versions are completely independent.

    No, you will need to download individually from the creative cloud Desktop App.

    Open creative cloud

    See the Sections App

    Search for Photoshop and click on install.

  • How do I clear on old programs in the box of the Add on?

    I have some old Console Java programs (6.0.20 6.0.21 6.0.22) who still reside in my Add-ons box. I was not able have to delete or clear.

    I might have to uninstall Firefox and lose all my settings in order to get the box of modules to abandon the old entries. At least, I guess it works.

    My question is: is it possible to empty the box modules without having to uninstall Firefox?

    Those who must be deleted manually, because Java has not deleted the when updating. See:
