Everything I have is operated by Windows 7. Its all happy and good...except it is no longer helped by the dreaded MS so just maybe I should move forward to Windows 10. However I work mostly with FLexi8.6 and that is 16 bit. So what do I do?

Really, what do I do?

Do I need to upgrade my working, fine equipment? Can I just install the new Windows 10? How do I get FLexi to work in that 32 bit environment?

Anyone? Ferris?

Gerald, we've all been there.

I'm retired now but I am still constantly keeping up with the latest Windows upgrades. (Currently running Windows 10 version 1903) Sometimes it is a bit of a pain but in the end run it is best to keep up with current technology.

I loved most of the windows versions at the time they were current, but yes as they evolved, they also required spending some money on updated graphics programs. In the overall picture it was a good thing.

In your case, I would recommend buying a new computer with Windows 10 as the operating system and spend some time getting used to it. Leave your money making system intact. Then once you are comfortable with Windows 10, upgrade your graphics program accordingly.

These days, if you are standing still with technology you are virtually walking backwards.

Good luck with whatever you choose to do. [Smile]

I would recommend looking into VM (Virtual Machine).

Running old OS on newer machine.

Funny, I have two computors , oh three, that are not hooked up to the internet. Guess what, everybody is happy. I don't like the automatic upgrades and the non-disk programs. One of my computors thinks that Bill Clinton is still that president.

About 2years ago one of my work computers, running Casmate, had hard drive problems, so I had to retire it, I was still using Windows 98. Now I use XP on one and windows 7 on another one. None of these 3 computers was hooked up to the internet.
