So is there a way for me to run 11 year old software on windows 8.1?

Install the 32bits version and select win95 in the compatibility thing, pray it works, if it doesnt, a virtual machine it's the only way.
>>
off-topic why do you need an 11 year old "diet analysis"

at first i thought it said dialysis which was slightly acceptable

boot your win98se hardened partition from your pentium rig like the rest of us, anon

Actually since I posted this, Ive just made everything I need in an excel spread sheet. This program was something I had to buy in college and I used it back then and it is really an amazing program, and I paid for it so...

A store I know refuses to upgrade their software that was designed for Windows 3.1. They use Windows 10 and it still works.

You'll be fine, if it doesn't work use compatibility mode.
>>
>>52258582
Compatibility mode
>>
>>52258582
On 8.1?
Yeah, there is a compatibility mode.
On 10?
nope. Legacy software out of the windows. Anything from xp or before, not allowed.

32-bit 8 is still capable of running 30 year old software as long as it behaves. If the shit you're looking at runs properly on NT then you should be alright.

lel no

>>52259940
Well, I just checked again and they are again available.
An update I presume?
>>
just install Windows 98 on a virtual machine

>>52258582
Virtual machine
>>
>>52259991
It depends on the program. 64bit applications support compablity back to vista (for obvious reasons), while 32 bit programs are supported back to windows 95.

Virtualization is a huge threat to MS's business model. Users will put up with damn near anything to use their old software. If they can just spin up a VM of the original environment, backwards compatibility has no value... and without legacy software Windows is awful. Look at the Surface RT.

go to your school's IT department.

i did this all the time for students at my human nutrition department

Yeah, that's why even mainstream Windows now supports Hyper-V without having to nigger rig it.

Using legacy systems with modern hypervisors sucks dick anyway, emulation is way better.
