My computer is Dell with Windows 8.1 on 64-bit. I tried to install the software and I noticed in the Quick Start Guide that it is compatible only with Windows XP, 2000, 98, and ME. Can I use it with Windows 8.1?

No, because as you say, the application is compatible only with old Windows operating systems. However, a solution can be the Compatibility Mode. Right click on the program icon and go to Properties > Compatibility tab. Check the Run this program in compatibility mode for box and select Windows XP from the drop-down list. Click Apply and then OK.
