    Anyone have any luck getting it to work on windows 10?
    I've tried all the compatibility options for previous windows versions.
    I've set it the 8 bit (256 color mode).
    Thanks for any suggestions, Dalton

    Hey Dalton! I know this is a bit late, but I recently switched back to Windows and had a similar issue with some of my old software not working properly.
    I did some digging and actually found some helpful tips on the Reddit Windows Keys sub. It might be worth checking out to see if there are any workarounds or solutions for getting BoatExpress Software to work on Windows 10.
    Unfortunately, I don't have any personal experience with that specific software, but I know how frustrating it can be when things don't work as they should.

    I understand the need for backwards compatibility but expecting to run an application that is compatible with an operating system from 27 years ago, perhaps it is better to make a small virtual partition of an operating system and install virtual box and install Windows 95 or then install BoatExpess.
