Try right clicking on the autorun.exe or setup.exe files and choose Computability and then tick the Run this program in compatibly mode for one of the older Windows versions - you may need to Windows 95 but start with Windows XP and try a version until it works. If this works you may need to do the same for the MYOB.exe file to use the data file successfully. The other option, if you have access to your old laptop, is to COPY the programme folder over to your new system and find the MYOB.exe file and use it to run the program. Again, you may need to change the compatibility and this could require workarounds for MS Office links but it sounds like your requirements are straightforward.
