    My accounting department has this archaic software they need transfered from the current W2K Pro machine to a new Win XP Pro machine. There are no know install disks nor support from the long gone developers of the software.

    How do i manually install something like this? There is just a folder on the C drive that contains the program. On the desktop there is a shortcut to the EXE file. When you click on the EXE in W2K Pro it launches a command-looking window with the program in it- groovy…works great!

    I have it setup in XP just like the W2K Pro machine and have even tried the compatibility wizard. When I click on the EXE it flashes up a quick command window and dissapears. I know I am not doing this right.

    Any help?
