I have a client that has a very old software package that he uses on Vista, Works 8.5.

Does anyone know how/if it will run on Windows 8?

Hi.

Don't know, but the windows upgrade advisor should be able to tell you - run it on vista. To run it, simply use the upgrade assistant that starts when you initiate the process of upgrading to win8, from here http://windows.microsoft.com/en-us/windows-8/upgrade-to-windows-8
Note: afterwards, you don't have to buy it ;)
