We have a medical device software and hardware with dedicated DOS application. We were able to run it on Dell Latitude D 610 with windows XP however we want  to use a new lap top so we are looking at solutions:
1. Any advice regarding new lap top with windows XP would be appreciated

2. advice on how to run it on windows 7 including testing -  we are seeking an expert who can bid for this project
We will be pleased to provide more info

we don't "bid for projects". this isn't a contractor website. we offer free support (typically to home users).


have you contacted the software vendor to ask about windows7 (or later) compatibility with the software? they may have an answer.


outside of that, have you tried installing the software/hardware on a windows 7 machine? windows 7 has a feature called "compatibility mode" that allows you to run software in such a way that the software thinks it's on windows XP. this can solve a lot of problems with older software.




I work with a lot of measuring equipment (manufacturing environment) that requires older software so...I feel your pain.
