    I have data base program that runs only on XP. I have another computer connected to it that has XP, and I can access the program and add or remove data. I would like to upgrade this computer to windows 7. Would I still be able to access the program.

    Shouldn't be an issue. Windows 7 has a compatibility mode that may need to be used in some cases.

    What program is it? Maybe they have an update that makes it more win7 friendly.

    I don't know if it makes a difference. I meant to say that I want to upgrade this computer with a new one with windows 7.

    I think you are not working with windows 7 of 32 bits .
    While you are installing then you can get an option and
    there you have to select of which bit you want to install .
    There you need to select 32 .
    Please make a try .
