My swift family ancestry software will not work
Unfortunately it doesn’t appear that your software is compatible with windows 7. Windows 7 does have a compatibility mode which is suppose to let the program run as it would in an older OS. However a little luck is needed, as well as the hardware requirements. such as windows 7 pro, and up. 2 Gigs of memory, and «cpu hardware virtualization support» (although there is a work around for virualization)
To try running your program in compatibility mode right click on the programs short cut, click properties, click on the compatibility tab, check «run this program in compatibility mode», click on the drop down menu and select windows xp, also click «run this program as administrator», and click ok.
If you get an error, along the lines of «Cannot start windows virtual pc» follow the link provided, and download the appropriate update for your computer 32/64 bit. This is the work around i mentioned for virtualization support. So as long as you have win 7 professional or higher, as well as 2 gigs of memory you should be able to run your program.

1 Answer I have a new computer and when I tried to install my older Swift Family Ancestry program, it wasn’t compatable. My new computer is an Acer 5734Z 4838 Laptop with Intel Pentium processor T4500, 3 GB DDR3.
If you can get the programme to install ( this was designed for windows 95 98) you might be able to get it to run in compatibility mode. I assume your laptop is running Vista?
To do this, install the software ( might need to install «as administrator»),
Once installed, click on the programmes shortcut (right mouse click) and select «properties», click on the compatibillity tab and check the box «run this programme» select windows 98 or 95 and click apply
See if that works
