Thanks Ray. Hopefully this helps someone. I don't have this computer or situation anymore so can't evaluate or rate your answer in context of my question.

Oh! yes this would solve the storage management part, and it's what I'll do if nothing else substantial turns up.

comment Pretend file on disk exists for old program
@DavidPostill what kind of detail? it's pretty specific already, but anyway: unzip datafile.zip -d %temp%\ && ye_old_fortran.exe %temp%\datafile.txt && del %temp%\datafile.txt

comment How can I “turn on wireless capability” in Windows 7?
Yup, this was my problem too. Vital keywords to add for other searchers: with WiFi Intel Manual Diagnostic tool "Software radio is OFF" means wireless is disabled in Windows Mobility Center, and "Hardware radio is OFF" means the laptop switch is off (button on the front/side or Fn-F2/F3/...)

comment Is there any 'sudo' command for Windows?
@Kiquenet that's the same approach as runas in other answers, with similar results and differences to elevate, isn't it?

comment Import 71 and file permission in ArcGIS
@Gili your two sentences oppose each other. Which one is the typo? ;-) It's good to know that at least for some import71.exe does work on Win7; wish I understood why not for me.

comment Is there any benefit to plugging a USB 2.0 device into a USB 3.0 port?
This is actually the most correct answer, based on data not (just) theory. There is a measurable difference, but it's very unlikely to be perceptible until your operation is in the tens plus minutes range. Anandtech whipped out the tools and benchmarked reads and writes from/to an SSD to various combinations of USB2-in-3 ports, USB 3.0 Flash Drive Roundup. Best case? Shave 19 seconds off 228 seconds. (They also tested US3-in-2 if you're curious.)
