I used Sylcount four years ago running on Vista and purchased the CDs from them. Recently, changing to running on Windows 7, Sylcount got a runtime error 68. So I got out the CDs purchased in 2012 and tried to install them again. No luck. Even paid $79 for a tech to help me with no luck. I wrote Sylvan three emails with no response and their old phone number I used to purchase the CDs is disconnected.

So with all this frustration and time I had it deleted from my PC entirely. Does anyone know how to reach them to place a new order or get tech support? I need the CDs to run on Windows 7 and with Microsoft Word 2007.

If not, any recommendations for a comparable program to work with Word 2007? I too need this for my job!

The only thing at this moment is to try to install the application in a virtual machine that you can set up with the help of Virtualbox. The virtual machine will allow you to install Windows XP or Vista to run the software without any other intervention from tech. Download Virtualbox, then follow this guide to create a virtual machine. Once the machine is up and running, mount the CD-rom inside the environment, insert the CDs and you should be able to use them.

Note: A Windows XP / Windows Vista installation disk is necessary to accomplish this.
