I used it for several years on a Windows XP PC. Now I have a Windows 8.1 OS and I would love to use it again. Is that possible?

Download the package again and right click it. Select Troubleshoot Compatibility and select Windows XP or Windows 7. Windows will make the necessary adjustments, then you can run the application in Windows 8.1

I'd recommend getting the unicode version JWPceu, so that you can use the Windows 8 IME to type Japanese in JWP.

To get JWPceu.exe to run smoothly in Windows 8, I set the compatibility to Windows 7, and changed the security settings for jwpceu.cfg so that access is allowed for the logged-in user.

Still very useful software, if only for the dictionary...
