Tried the 2 releases I have - 9.7 and 9.8.1 - same result for both - tried autorun and "run as administrator".

Just got Lotus to Install - had to copy (xcopy *.* /s at command prompt)  the disk to C: and then ran setup.exe - installed just fine. Thanks for your suggestions.

I would like to run Lotus 123 (version 5.01 for Windows) on a new computer (Windows 10; 64 bit).  This software ran successfully in Windows 7 (32 bit), and possibly would run on Windows 10 (32 bit) also.  I know that the software is very old, but it was the last version of Lotus 123 which accepted keystrokes, and for that reason I never upgraded further.  I have tried to follow the suggestions from others above to no avail.  Like everybody else I have a lifetime of programs written in Lotus 123 which I want to keep operational.

You may need to try and track down a "newer" lotus version ... i.e. 9.8 ... there were a number of Y2K, etc updates in it which may be causing you issues. 

FYI - 9.8 does allow for key strokes ... I still use "/cd" every day.

Many thanks to DavidCoulter001.  I have successfully installed Lotus 123 from a Lotus SmartSuite Millennium edition (release 9.5) disk onto two computers running Windows 10 Pro (64-bit).  This software was released in 1999.  I had not succeeded with an earlier release (from 1995), but the later version installed without any problems or work-arounds.  Very old Lotus 123 files (*.wk1) do not read into release 9.5, but it is simply a matter of upgrading these to (*.wk4) on my old computer (Windows XP, 32-bit) first.  With a big investment in Lotus 123 over many decades in terms of Lotus files created, macros written and my general fluency in the software, I was very relieved that I still have Lotus 123 as my primary spreadsheet program to this day.

Help. I get the install to start but it wants to do the install on the DVD drive and I cannot change it to another drive. Part of the problem could be my C; is a SSD drive.
