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.

well my suggestion was actually to run your program as virtaul xp.
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.
