Dear Doris,

I don't have any experience of Windows 7, but it should work.

If you have problems, try right clicking on the programme shortcut on the Desktop and then on the Compatibility tab choose the latest version of Windows that version 7 offers you and see what difference that makes. If no good, try earlier versions until you get one that works. With XP there is no problem and this fix isn't necessary. (this all assumes that MS haven't messed with the shortcut user interface in Win7 so that Compatibility is dealt with some other way! If so look in the OS help under Compatibility)

Good luck,


let me know how you get on.
