I purchased a new computer running Windows 7 64 bit Home Premium. I was
unable to run my Digger indexes on this setup. I had two choices - I could
purchase an upgrade of Windows 7 to the minimum Enterprise Edition, so I
could download and run XP Mode in Windows 7 or I could download Virtual PC
and install XP on my virtual machine which I could then load with my Digger
indexes. Takes a bit of doing, but it is possible and works for me.
Microsoft have not made it easy for people upgrading their
computers..........they will try anything to make people spend more on
upgrades just so they can run their programmes. I hate Microsoft.
