Recently, I had problems installing Office 2007 on Windows 10 64bit… The issue was unexplained; Office 2007 setup simply “failed installing PowerPoint” and then just gave up without any error messages. So here’s what I did to solve it:
How to install Office 2007
First step, purchase this tool, the Longbow Reviver here – sorry, it’s not free 🙁
Insert the Microsoft Office CD into your computer
Next, start In the Reviver App
Click on the tab named “Old Program Reviver“
Using the “. . .” button, pick the path to the CD
Select “Windows Vista” from the “Run As” dropdown
Now click “Fix Old Program“
Once the Reviver tool has completed, run setup.exe from the Microsoft CD to install as normal
AutoCAD Map 2000i users are very used to the software package and cannot do without it. With the latest hardware and required move to new Windows versions, you will run into multiple problems trying to get your AutoCAD running again.
How to install AutoCAD Map 2000i
Obtain your purchased copy of the Longbow Converter here
Start In the Converter App and note the user interface
Insert your AutoCAD CD into your computer
Start the Longbow Converter tool
Select the 2nd tab named “Old AutoCAD Installer Reviver“
Using the “…” button pick your AutoCAD CD
Click “Run Old Installer” and follow the Converter’s instructions.
Once the AutoCAD Map 2000i setup starts, stop and read the next step…
In the setup program, navigate through each setup dialog as normal, except when you get to the installation folder, **it’s vitally important to make sure you install to c:\acad2000i (not Program Files (x86)\AutoCAD Map 2000i as usually prompted by default)**
do not reboot if prompted to do so.
Fully close the AutoCAD setup application
Finally, let the Converter App finish processing
Now, you can happily run your AutoCAD 2000i on Windows 7, Windows 8 and Windows 10!

Select the 3rd tab named “Old AutoCAD Program Reviver“

If you are having problems installing your WordPerfect 6 on your new PC, like you are unable to run the setup.exe as shown below, then read on…
Windows 16bit setup error – This app can’t run on your PC
Unfortunately, WordPerfect 6 is a pure 16bit application which means that it cannot be run on 64bit Windows 7, Windows 8 or Windows 10. However, it can only run on *32bit* Windows 7, Windows 8 or Windows 10 using the Longbow Reviver app.
Obtain your copy of the Longbow Reviver tool here – you need version 4.10 or newer
Using Windows Explorer, copy your entire WordPerfect 6 install CD media to your hard drive, to a folder path c:\InstallCDs\WordPerfect6
Start the Longbow Reviver tool
select the 1st tab named “Old Installer Reviver“
then using the ‘…’ button pick the c:\InstallCDs\WordPerfect6\INSTPROG folder
Now click the ‘Fix and Run Old Installer’ button
Read and understand all the prompts that appear, then continue by clicking OK.
Install as normal
Close setup – Do not reboot if prompted to do so
Now WordPerfect 6 is installed
Now go back to the Longbow Reviver app…
select the 2nd tab “Old Program Reviver“
using the ‘…’ button pick the newly installed c:\WPWIN60folder
Set the Run As dropdown to Windows 95
next, click ‘Fix Old Program’
Say ‘No’ if the Reviver tool asks if you want to re-register…
Now you can happily run your WordPerfect 6 on Windows 10, Windows 7, Windows 8 or Windows 8.1 32bit (sorry, but not 64bit!)
Your 64bit AutoCAD Civil3d 2013 was never designed to run in Windows 10 (this version of Windows is newer than AutoCAD 2013). In order for your AutoCAD Civil3d 2013 to run as it did in previous versions of Windows, you need to follow these easy steps…
NOTE: These steps do not bypass normal Autodesk licensing/authorization, you should expect to use your own serial numbers in the normal way.
Make sure all previous installed versions of AutoCAD Civil3d 2013 are uninstalled first.
AutoCAD LT 2014 was not designed to run in Windows 10 (Windows 10 was released after AutoCAD LT 2014) and inevitably you will run into issues such as the infamous Ribbon crashing issue, slow startup problems, text scaling issues, etc.
You can automatically solve these problems using our Longbow Converter App, it fixes and manages the AutoCAD LT 2014 installation so that you can be up and running again… Just follow these easy instructions:
How to install 64bit AutoCAD LT 2014
First, uninstall any existing AutoCAD LT 2014 installations on your computer
Next start the Longbow Converter App (V11.15 or higher), download here
Start the Converter tool
Pick the 1st tab named “AutoCAD 32bit Installer Converter“
Using your mouse, right-click the tab text “AutoCAD 32bit Installer Converter” so that it changes to “AutoCAD 64bit Installer Converter“
Next, using the “. . .“ button, select your AutoCAD installation CD and follow the instructions presented by the Converter tool user interface.
Once the conversion process is complete
click Install/Run Setup to start setup
Once you have completed the AutoCAD installation process…
Completely close the setup program
Go back to the Converter App and make sure it states “Success!“
