    I have a problem with an existing program I have had for years. I had the installation program on my disk, but after re installing Win 7 I somehow have lost the installation program. It is an old one and therefore not awailable any more. I have the program installed on an disk partition, buit when clicking on the icon it tells me that window cannot find language.dll.
    I have the program installed on another Computer running XP, but it is very slow.
    Is there any way I can get into Window and install the missing file myself. Alternative would be to remove the XP disk from the old computer and install it on the newer computer, but I might get problem with having both XP and Win 7 running on the same computer.

    Please help

    Have you checked to see if this program is compatible with Win 7? Many older programs are not.

    Hello & Welcome to Tech Guy Forum.
    Which W7?

    Please run this forum's system info tool & post the results into this thread.

    You will not be running both OSs simultaneously.

    If you put your XP HDD [ hard disk drive ] into a computer with a different chipset than the computer that is / was on the computer when you installed XP, and then boot to that HDD, you will receive a BSOD; http://support.microsoft.com/kb/314082

    I think your only option is to install your desired program onto the computer running W7.

    W7 has an XP mode.
    Some protentially useful information.

    Keep us posted.

    Best of success.
