I have Anagram Genius version 9 but it won't run since I installed Windows 10.

The software doesn't work on Windows 10 because it lacks compatibility. I have searched the official website, and found that Anagram Genius is compatible only with the following versions of Windows: Windows 95, 98, ME, 2000, XP or Windows NT. In Windows 10, right click it and go to Properties > Compatibility, then choose Windows XP from the list and launch it that way.

I have done as you suggest (In Windows 10, right click and go to Properties > Compatibility, then choose Windows 7 from the list and launch it that way) but it still doesn't work. I also tried Windows XP instead of Windows 7 but without success.

This message appears:

Anagram Genius v9 has stopped working

A problem caused the program to stop working correctly. Windows will close the program and notify you if a solution is available.

That means the software lacks compatibility with Windows. Install VirtualBox and then add Windows XP as a virtual environment. It's the only way until the developers release a compatible version.
