    Calendar Creator Plus V2. Works on Win XP but I can't remember if I got it working on Win 7. Probably not because that PC is 64-bit as well.

    There are 5 versions of it:

    Version 2 is only 16bit and was for W3.1, before W95. I don't know if W10 will handle 16bit, but versions 4 or 5 should work. You may need to use 'compatibility mode', right click on the .exe file in windows explorer.

    Thanks for that. Didn't realise it was actually that old or 16-bit. Will see if I have any luck with those versions.

    64 bit versions of Windows (any version, not just 10) will not run 16 bit programs, but the 32 bit versions still do.

    Yeah sure there are better drawing programs but itís nice and simple - and am too old to learn anything else anyway!

    Best idea for old Windows programs is probably running the old Windows in a VM.

    Performance is pretty good now on modern machines and usually half-decent 3D acceleration can be obtained.

    I would be wary of running really old programs straight on modern Windows, some of them can install very old DLLs etc which mess things up for later programs.
