<font color='#0000FF'>OK, may not have been the best thing to do but I have had XP loaded on to my laptop, it used towhen  have windows 98.

For a few years I have been using datatrak for windows to download my dive profiles to.  I have just tried to add my old dives to the software I have loaded and I have even downloaded the latest version from the website.

Problem is when the dive loads the profile line disappears in to the background.

Anyone got any suggestions.

<font color='#000080'>Hi

You may have to run it in compatability mode. Windows XP is very different from windows 98 and will not run certain programs properly.

To do this find the program file and right click on it. You may have to go through MyComputer to find this. It will be an .exe file.

When presented with the drop down menu choose properties.

Click the compatability tab and choose to run the program with windows 98.

Click OK

Now try running it. It may work but no promises


Hope that helps

Andy
