Unhappy compatibility of Peachtree Acconting 7.0 and Windows XP
I recently bought a laptop with Windows XP---I had an accounting software, Peachtree Accounting 7.0 that I hadn't used, and went to install it. When I called for an unlock # to get into using this software, the rep at Peachtree told me the software was incompatible, it would cause me laptop to crash, it was only compatible to Windows 95/98, etc. etc.,that I HAD to get Peachtree 2003. I could be wrong, but my understanding of the Windows operating systems is that this is horse hockey---the woman basically refused to give me an unlock #, I got angry, only to call back later to get one from another rep. Can you tell me what problems there are with this softare, if any, and as I have Office XP on the laptop anyway, couldn't I just do as well using the Excel?

Thanks so much----Michelle

There are definately problems with XP's security model and PeachTree for one thing. I had a nightmare even getting version 8.0 to run on an NT Workstation. They aren't lying as every piece of software will not work on every OS. It was written expressly for those two OS's so I am sure they know what will run their software and what won't. Go to their web site and look at the support FAQ's.
