This is because the old program tries to access the graphics drivers of your system directly, which NT will not allow due to security reasons. There is no work around and you will have to look for a 32 bit version of this program. What program is it? Sometimes, wrappers for such programs are written if the prog is popular or expensive. Let me know which application this is and I will see what I can do/find...

The program is Kronos Timekeeper.  Upgrading is cost prohibitive for my company.
