I am unable to open Simply Accounting 2004 (XP version) in my windows7 PC due to compatibility issues. Apparently I could purchase a version upgrade of Simply Accounting for $500 that would open on windows7 and transfer the data I have in Simply Accounting 2004. But this is for a non-profit organization (I'm a volunteer),a very small accounting system, so don't really want to spend the $$$s.

Is there a way to open and process Simply Accounting 2004 in my windows7 PC?

Currently running Simply Accounting on a very old PC that I hope will live until I find a solution. Simply accounting is the only thing I do on that PC, and I backup every time I process any transactions.

Thanks for your help.

Have you gone to the accounting program in windows explorer, opened the folder, right clicked on the application or .exe file, went to the compatibility tab, chose win xp then hit apply and ok? The app should now run.

If you have Windows 7 Pro, you can use XP Mode to run it if setting compatibility fails.
