    You are facing compatibility issues then try to install the same application in compatibility mode of Xp. To do the same, right click on its set up file and click on "Properties". In the properties window, click on "Compatibility" tab and check the checkbox which show "Ru the program in compatibility Mode for:" and choose "XP" in the drop down box. Finally click on "Apply" and then on "Ok" to apply all changes. Once done, restart the installation procedure as Administrator.

    The Dos programs will run in Windows 7 64 bit edition if the programs are compatible with 64 bit editions.
    You can install each Dos application in XP compatibility mode. The steps are as below:
    1. Select the DOS application by right clicking on it.
    2. Select ‘Properties’.
    3. Click on the ‘Compatibility’ tab
    4. Place a check mark next to ‘run the program in compatibility mode for: ‘option.
    5. Click on ok and that should do it.

    Check the compatibility using the link below:
