I have an old Windows Program that I need to run. I most likely ran it on Windows 98. There is no updated version. The program is a checklist editor program, this is for a corporate aircraft to load an electronic checklist into the avionics. Program name, (MDC-4000 Checklist Editor)made by Rockwell Collins.

-I have a Mac with Windows 7 on Bootcamp/VMFusion
-I tried clicking on the .exe file and it will not load
-I tried going to a DOS prompt/command prompt
-I tried going to the Mircosoft site but no info

I will have to call the avionics manufacturer this week to see what can be done to get the program going. I thought someone here may have an idea.

Thanks,

Jeff

Go to the .exe file and right click on it. Click properties---> Compatibility Tab. See if you can select Win 98 from the drop down menu. Not sure if this option is available under Bootcamp on Mac but I'm running Win 7 and it's there. Hopefully that works for you.

Nice. So I don't talk to you in like forever and now you can't start your airplane? Betcha you can get the oxygen masks to deploy though eh?

Chad,

That was perfect, that's what made it work. I did pull out my old Sony/Win 98 computer and had it working but now I can use my Macbook Pro. Thanks.

Sincity,

Yes we need to have an electronic checklist to get our old airplane going. Gotta have those computer things.

Happy New Year!

Jeff
