Spurious error notification

  1. There are programs which trigger 'expected newer windows version - update' when I try to install them in WinMe, yet the vendor of TK8 is adamant that it can run in WinMe. In fact he says that the text of the 'error' notification does not even occur in the code. I would very much like to have TK8 run in WinMe, so I need help 1. to discover what already-installed software/driver might be triggering the notification and 2. devise a work-around. Is that available ?

    I am unsure about their claim frankly, Winme is a decade or so old OS, and as far as I know, it is about 5 years or so since the support for this OS was ended by MS, so there is every possibility that some software may not work, due to various reasons including meeting standards for newer OS available now.

    Archean is right. Using older OS depends on the user himself, but considering the updates and maintenance of it. Try t have the newer OS.
