I have a few custom apps that are currently running on Windows Xp. I would like to move the apps away form the xp machine, and onto a 2008 R2 x64 terminal server. There's a range of apps, accounting, payroll, admin etc.
Are there any tricks to try to get older apps/installs working on a newer OS. As there's a few different apps, I'm looking for general advice/tricks.
I'm looking for some advice from someone with actual experience of making older programs work on Serverf 2008.
I know that i can run programs in 2003 compatibility mode, by changing the properties of the shortcut. Can they also be installed in a compatibility mode?
