If you can get the program to run in a msdos window, then you can. You may have to mess with some dos shortcut settings to get it to work though. If the program requires real mode dos., then you cannot load it.

However you can hack your WinME to get dos back., but that is not recommended and is very dangerous. But possible.

If you need the program that bad, just use a bootdisk to load the computer in dos. Then you could load the program.

Or you could use partition magic to resize your hard drive, create another bootable partition with just dos on it. The you could use a boot manager to choose between WinME and Dos.

Anyway you go about it will just be either dangerous to do or just annoying.
