I know 2009 version works with 7, dunno about what you have.

It shouldn't hurt to try it and see. If it doesn't, you can buy it from Amazon and other places for around $50.

Good luck.

Updt-V10 (2003 vintage) installs w/"known issues" but runs.

I dug up an old version 10 and installed it on Windows 7. It comes up with a message saying there are "known issues" with this version. However it gives you the option to run it anyway, and it did come up and ask for a file to open. I didn't have a file handy to try with it, so that's about all I can tell you. Since your version appears to be 7, and 10 has "known issues", I'd say the message for you isn't so optimistic, but you could always try it and see for yourself. If it were me, I think I'd just invest a few bucks and get a current version. YMMV.

Good luck.
