I have a new computer, but TommySoftware CAD application is on a old one. I loaded it on 4 discs, but it is not compatible with Windows 8.1. What can I do? I'm retired now, but I still need to access my drawings.
Unfortunately, TommySoftware CAD/DRAW is an old application developed to run only on Windows XP and below platforms. In order to run it on your computer, I suggest you try using Windows 8.1 Compatibility Mode. Right-click the installer, select Properties and navigate to the Compatibility tab. Check the Run this program in compatibility mode for box, select a compatible operating system from the drop-down list, click Apply and then OK. If it doesn't work, try installing the software using using DOSBox.
