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 !

What does it mean to be "Always On"?

Is your cloud always on? With an Always On cloud you won't have to worry about downtime for maintenance or software application code updates, ensuring that your bottom line isn't affected.

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.

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

@Aarthurr: Start here: http://www.microsoft.com/windows/virtual-pc/download.aspx

and then just accept his answer. ;-)
