    Win 10, 64 Bit, Problem with Lotus 97 Smart suite install

    The Lotus program had been installed on my 8 yr.old Windows 10, 32 bit desktop and ran fine. However a persistent BSOD problem led to its replacement. I have installed the Lotus program on my Toshiba laptop running Windows 10 and 64 Bit, and it works fine. My newer HP Envy desktop with Windows 10, 64 bit will not install the program. Only OS difference is the Laptop has windows 10 Pro, and the desktop has Windows 10 Home edition. First install attempt brought up a registry error. A reply to a query on Google was to run as administrator. This allowed me to install to the point of copying the files, but then came up saying not enough disk space available. Since I have 1.7+ Tbs empty, I do not think that is the problem. Any suggestions or ideas to get around this problem will be most gratefully received. Thanks

    How much storage space is in the Toshiba? I bet you it probably is the Terebyte+ drive, creating an overflow for a program created before multi-megabyte drives were common.

    My solution, go to the Toshiba, copy the files, put them where they belong. Try running the program then. That might work, if not well....I don't know.

    You could think about installing a vm solution such as VMware and install a guest operating system from the era such as Windows 98 then put a copy of your files in there.

    I have not heard the Lotus name in a very long time!
