    What system are you trying to run it on.. Looks like is an early dos based system such as XP and Win 2000 or NT4 required.

    I would think that the software is an old version hence the issues.. You can get a legacy program for Windows & which might enable it too run.. It will be looking for old .dll files and .dos prompt routines.. You may find the XP runs well with it..

    @Ashbandicoot you been watching too many Microsoft adverts lol. The only this compatible with a windows PC is a sledge hammer lol.

    Run a mac and use soft windows on a window on the desktop. Works a treat with XP and NT4 lol. And you can do all your serious work waiting for the updates to finish on the Emulated PC on the base machine. Enough said lol @GazHyde lol
