Hello,

I just bought a new computer and have spent the last 2-3 days installing all of my usual programs on to it. While for the most part this has been fine (Chrome, utorrent, VLC, a subtitle editor etc.) a few programs either give me errors on start up (CDisplay) or just don't start up at all after initial loading screens (Sigil, Calibre). Obviously I have uninstalled and reinstalled, to no effect.

Any idea what might cause some programs to fail while others work fine?

Many thanks

these programs were probably written for Windows XP.

perhaps this will help:
