Install Works 8 on Windows 10 64 bit

Dear Microsoft,

I would like to ask some help in my issue: I tried to install Works 8 on Windows 10 64 bit operation system, but the setup process failed all the time, because the installer wants to install Internet Explorer 6 to my machine, but it doesn't work (the system is 64 bit, the IE 6 installer is 32 bit). Please, help me in this case, because Works 8 is my father's most used software, and he don't want to change it to Office (it's totally different for him).

I tried to install in any compatibility mode, but it doesn't work.

Much thanks in advance!

Peter

Is there an option to customize setup and uncheck IE? Could you try downloading version 9 to see if it skips installing version?

I have works 9.0 installed on my 64 bit Windows 10.

You will have to try to find an installer for Works 9 and then see if it will allow you to use the Work 8 key to activate it.

Your other option is to use a "VM", virtual machine, tool. In it you would install an older version of Windows than can run Works 8. Here are some articles about this idea

One might still own old software or games that aren’t supported on recent versions of Microsoft Windows, so a virtual machine could be the solution to get them running anyway. Although Virtual PC is officially only for professional or business editions of Windows, it can be installed on home editions without any problems.

Hi Andre,

Thanks for your reply.

No, unfortunately there's no option to uncheck IE6. :(

Unfortunately, my father doesn't know English, so the newer version is not too optimal for him (I need in this case Hungarian).

Try installing compatibility mode.

No, unfortunately it doesn't works. It says you can't install IE6 on 64bit Windows. :(

It would be good if I can deactivate IE6 somehow from Works 8 installer - it's not necessary because the latest version of IE (11) installed by Windows basically. I think if we can do it somehow, the Works could run on Windows 10 64bit (its running on Windows 10 32bit)

I own a restaurant and all my files are done in works,  technology has evolved,  the way i installed works 8.0,  while reloading the operating system,  do so on windows 7 fresh os install,  it will install because win7 comes with IE 6.0,   once installed ,  upgrade to win 10 and it will work.
