  • I am unable to open applications which I brought over to 7 from XP. I double click the app and the cursor loads then nothing happens. I have tried Trouble shoot compatibility but nothing happens as well.

    thank you for your attention.

  • Hello,

    How do you install windows 7 upgrade or custom? If you perform a custom install, the applications that installed on XP  are unable to open in windows 7. You need reinstall all the applications.  In addition, if you just copy the files of application from XP to win7, the application will also not work because its registry information is not existing in win7.
