Can you run vista software on windows 8?

The current version of Windows 8 is Windows 8 Consumer Preview.Which is the Beta version of Windows 8. Yes,you can install and run Windows Mail for Windows Vista on Windows 8, just like you can on Windows 7. But to get Windows mail working in Windows 8,you must have the dill file Msidcrl30.dill in order for Windows Mail to work on Windows 8. Msidcrl30.dill is included in both Windows Vista and Windows 7 but it is not included in Windows 8. So first you have to install the dill file on Windows 8 in order to get Windows Mail working. To do this you need to go to either your Windows Vista or Windows 7 computer.Then go to your Windows/system 32 folder on C drive. In the Windows/system 32 folder look for a dill file called Msidcrl30.dill. Then copy and paste the dill file into your My Documents or My Downloads folder. And then make a new folder. Copy and paste the dill file into the new folder you have just made.Then right click with your mouse and select,send to zip folder. This creates a zip installer file. Once you have done this you must copy the Msidcrl30.dill dill file onto your Windows 8 computer. And then unzip the file and open the folder,then paste the dill file in Windows/system32 on Windows 8. Then copy the Windows Mail program files found in Programs on C drive onto Windows 8.The same way you copied the dill file. You can copy the files and dill file from your Windows Vista or Windows 7 computer onto your Windows 8 computer.Using a software like Team Viewer which lets you transfer files from one computer to your other computer. Or you can copy the files using a USB thumb drive. And you can also upload your files onto a file sharing site like Mediafire,then you can just download the files onto your computer. This is very useful if you are away from home and you don't have your other computer with you. And if you upload your files to a file sharing site,you will be given a web link.That you can share with your friends so that they can download the program installer files onto their computer. Then unzip the Windows Mail program file to programs on C drive. Windows Mail is now working on Windows 8.and you can set it as the default program just like you can on Windows 7. Or you could just use the mail client built into Windows 8. :)
