My Microsoft Greeting program worked with Windows 2000, but since upgrading to XP it will load, but when I click to bring up a card it throws me out of the program. Is there a way to use the program with XP?

Yes, right click in the .exe of the program, properties, compatibility, and look for the option "run in compatibility with" and select Windows 2000

Thanks for your reply. I failed to mention that I had already tried that, and I got the same result, it throws me out of the program.

OK, I just re-installed with the firewall turned off (checked properties for compatibility with 2000), same result.

Do you hae some program to block the installation program of any setup.exe? i mean, some program like spyboot, ad-aware, sysmante endpoint protection.

And, the S.O. that you have, Is SP2, or SP3? and Is XP 32 bits or X64?

No program to block installation.

SP3 and XP 32 bits.

I don't have access to a computer with XP SP2. Thanks for all you input, I guess it's just not going to work on my computer. Again, I appreciate your help.
