Company policy is to lock everything down to a degree where it's next to impossible to do anything. So to use some tools we use on a regular basis (which were written in Delphi using stone tablets, back in the day!) we need to Admins on the PC's, which is at odds with IT security! So I am trying to run (I have managed to install it!) one of the Applications on a Windows 8 Laptop... I know I managed to get it running at one stage but how????
I believe Win8 also had compatability mode for older programs. Right-click on the executable and go into properties, or something, and chose compatibility mode and set to Win XP or earlier??? (or something like that - I don't remember Win8's exact steps).
