Legacy software in Windows 8


Cuil

Likes # 0

I'm looking into upgrading PC hardware currently running XP and am concerned about legacy software and compatabilty with W8 in particular MSMoney (I'm running V14.0.120.1105 2004) which Microsoft no longer support. I have several years of financial and investment date which I do not want to lose! I also use MSOffice for Students principally Word, Excel and Outlook. Again, should I be concerned? Perhaps I now have to upgrade to Office 2010.... Any advice welcome

I use MS Money and MS Office with Windows 7 and they work perfectly. I have also tried them with Windows 8 RC and the same result - absolutely perfect!

Advice - just don't worry:-))
