I need to run a very old windows 2000 program on windows 7, and I do not have the install disk. All I have are the files from the windows 2000 install. I tried running it in comparability mode and still received this error message:

"This verison of this file is not compatible with the version of Windows you're running. Check your computer's system information to see whether you need an x86 (32-bit) or x64 (64-bit) verion of the program."

The person who created the program has since passed away, so I do not have the option of asking them. If anyone could help I would be very thankful. Also, if it helps, I can upload all the program files that i have.
