Did a new Windows version break your old Buzz Tools software program?

Newer Windows versions and Windows updates were not meant for old software. When Windows makes changes to their operating systems it can prevent many older software programs from running, including the Buzz Tools software programs listed below. You might have trouble installing, authorizing or running your older software programs. To continue using your old software, you’ll need your original Windows version and you may even need to install an older version of your software. It’s unfortunate that Microsoft doesn’t warn customers about possible third party software issues prior to the updating or upgrading of Windows.
