But what does Hans mean more precisely when he says he run the "compatibility troubleshooter in the shortcut"?

Has anyone solved this yet? At least there seem to be a solution that works for someone with Wordfinder.

Put a shortcut for the .exe file of the program you want to run onto the desktop.
Then right-click this shortcut. A context menu will pop up, then. Choose "compatibility troubleshooter" (or something like that) from that menu.

Thanks, context menu worked Aug 12

Thanks Rolf, it worked fine to do as you said. I can use Wordfinder in Windows 10 now without any problems at all.
