Hi,
right click the exe or installer, and install it using the compatibility mode. Prefer XP from Vista but even vista should do it. Then that should work perfect !

Thank you for your patience. When II install LotusSuite 9.8.1 OR just the standalone from this group Lotus WordPro (the application I really want), it just goes through it's paces and voila it is installed, seems functional, BUT will not read the .lwp files. So, when do I right click.

I understand there is the possibility of running a virtual XP program but the instructions I have found are probably over my head. You're instructions sound like something I could handle if I knew when or where t CLICK.

Thanks again for helping me address this issue. If I cannot get WordPro to fun I''ll have to buy another computer for XP only. I would not go online with it to spare myself all the invasions it seems vulnerable to.

look at this tutorial : http://search.microsoft.com/results.aspx?form=MSHOME&mkt=fr-FR&setlang=fr-FR&q=wsus
it is really not difficult, no need of buying another computer

I agree with dlan75: setting up a virtual XP system really is a no-brainer.
