Tech Tip: Making Software Compatible With Your Computer's Operating System

For some, the thought of installing software on a computer may seem like a daunting task. We are here to assist you! Library members are welcome to stop into the library or call with questions regarding installation of software borrowed from the lending library. We have tested all of our software on the XP and Vista operating systems. Software that has been tested and deemed as not compatible with XP has been removed from our shelves. Very soon we will be starting the next phase of testing on the Windows 7 operating system. It is possible to install older software on newer operating systems by changing the system settings. Again, this may sound like an intimidating task, but we would be happy to show our library members how this can be done. For additional assistance, we have simple one-page installation instruction guides available for operating systems XP, Vista, and 7. If you are a “show me” kind of learner and you have a Windows 7 computer, you may find the video on the following website helpful.
