Hello, I have really appreciated the use of this program. It has helped me greatly in my bible studies. I have really gotten used to the 7.7.7 version and I know it is an older one, but I have purchased and enhanced the program and didn't want to upgrade to the latest version simply because I'm a creature of habit and didn't want to loose all the extra bible versions and notes that I have purchased. Well, now my computer had to be upgraded from Windows Vista to Windows 7 because something went wrong with the Vista. I couldn't get the older 7.7.7 version to work on Windows 7, so I downloaded the latest version and I can't seem to get all my other versions to pull up on the newer version. If anyone has any suggestions they are greatly appreciated.

Try to apply a compatibility fix to your older application or install Windows XP mode to have the application running in Windows 7 with XP native mode applied to the setup/launcher files. This way you will increase compatibility and you'll be able to run the application in the new operating system.
