Hi Jose Luis,

We see that you have upgraded your laptop to Windows 10 and you would like to know why you are only offered to download programs that are originally for Windows 7. Most Windows 7 programs will still be able to work with your Windows 10 laptop. Some older programs might need the Program Compatibility Troubleshooter to be able to run. You can follow the steps on this link on how to run the program using compatibility mode.

Let us know if you need further assistance.

As noted, even though the program is designed for an older release, in most cases it will work on Windows 10 even though it says Windows 7 only.

Some programs can even work better using compatibility mode:
