I've just had to replace 3 old refurbed laptops, one of which had my "must-have" Lotus 123 (and Smartsuite) running under Win 7 Pro.
So - I needed to transfer my 35 years of 123 keystroke-level skills, plus all the 123 files and programs (why now "Apps") to Windows 10 .
All the forums and "How to..." sites say that's not easy - even possible.

But in hope it will be music to the ears to more of us old IT hacks ...
I ignored the plentiful web advice in the vein of re-configuring my registry and running in XP virtual mode ...
... and as all my working programs and data are on external HDDs, took the simplest first try of plugging them in and running "Lotus SmartSuite 9.8 - Int English.exe" (version 4.0.100.1124 ,148Mb, it says 'ere) .
It worked immediately -and better than with Win 7 Pro, which tries to re-install 123 if you click on a .123 or WK* file name.
I also installed old favourite "Organiser", which had gone awol under Win 7
Good luck!
