Cadkey Software

A bit off topic but maybe someone out there is using Cadkey for Windows version 7 which was published in the mid 1990s and works fine with Windows 95. I'm looking for the patch for the software that makes it compatible with Windows XP.

Re: Santa Fe 3460 series Hudson tender trucks
