I have recently changed my operating system from Linux to windows 7 and my linux softwares are not running on my new operating system. I do not know if there different softwares for different operating system. If so is there a way to run my previous softwares on my current windows 7 operating system.
Software compatibility for operating system diversion
There are many programs written for various operating systems. Most of the programs are compatible with all the operating systems. But there are some special or older programs that are not compatible with all the operating systems e.g. run poorly or may not run at all.
However, you can start the Program Compatibility troubleshooter. You can run the wizard on the program if the program installs but does not run correctly. You can also run the wizard on the setting program if the program does not install.
But it will not be appropriate at all times. You have to update your programs according to your advanced operating systems.
I hope you understand it.
