  • Have Windows 7 64 bit with Microsoft Greetings 2000 installed. When I tried to install Greetings 2001 I get it wants to update MDAC and reboot then continue install  thats all it does reboot & reboot. how come I got 2000 in but not 2001 and why is there not a newer version of Greetings its the only one I really like to use?

  • Microsoft Greeting 2001 seems to be not compatibile with Windows 7.

    I think the best solution could be using virtualization: if you have Windows 7 Professional or Ultimate, download ind install Windows Virtual PC with XP Mode (http://www.microsoft.com/windows/virtual-pc/) to have a 32 bit Windows XP Professional SP3 environment in which you can install and execute your program; otherwise, you can use a virtualization program like Microsoft Virtual PC 2007 SP1 (http://www.microsoft.com/download/en/details.aspx?id=24439) or Oracle VirtualBox (http://www.virtualbox.org), create a virtual machine and install the operating system you need to run your software.
    Remember that you must own a valid Retail license for the operating system you want to virtualize.
