I have recently changed from Windows 8 to Windows 10 on my PC. Windows 10 works well, but I cannot install my copy of The Big Box of Art 350,000 - it goes so far and stops at about 27% of installation. Is TBBOA350k too old, or is there a modification/update to give me access, please?

This happens because the software might not be compatible with Windows 10. Based on the information found on Amazon, the software/CD is only compatible with Windows XP, Windows Me, Windows 2000, Windows NT, Windows 98, Windows 95. At that time, Windows 10 wasn't available for installation, so compatibility was questionable.

I recommend applying a compatibility tweak to Windows XP. Locate the disc in My Computer and right click it. Select Explore then right click the setup package and choose Properties > Compatibility. Choose Windows XP and tick the Run as Administrator as well.
