Need help installing AmiPro 3.0 program

  1. I may be posting this in the wrong spot....if so I hope someone reads it that can help.

    BACKGROUND: AmiPro 3.0 is a Lotus program designed for Windows 3.5. According to Lotus, it will not work in any newer Windows programs. However, that is wrong. I use it daily in WIN98 and WIN2000. Today I installed it in WinXE and it worked fine.

    PROBLEM: Now I need to install it in Windows VISTA, as I have 1000's of files I need to be able to access. The program is on 3.5 disks. There is no A drive on the computer I need it on. I tried copying each disk and labeling them as Disk 1,2,3 etc. on a Flash drive, then trying to install as if they were single disks. Didn't work.

    Can someone please help me? I know it can be done, buy I don't know how. Lotus was bought out by IBM, so you know how much help they are!

    why not purchase a floppy drive? They're cheap around $10.

    also Vista has many software incompatibilities -- expect some. If it works, you're lucky.

    also- posting your email address in a public forum is very foolish, unless you like spam.
