Autosketch 9 missing acge16.dll in windows 8.1

I am trying to install Autosketch 9 on my new Windows 8.1 machine. Install seems to go well. Sketch.exe is in the expected location and shows up in my list of available applications. But when I try to start it, I get a messabe box saying it cannot run because AcGe16.dll is missing.

 

I tried repairing the installation. No change.

 

I uninstalled it; disabled virus protection; reinstalled. No change.

 

What now? I know this is an old version, but I do not use it enough to want to upgrade.

Autosketch was designed for Windows XP. No fix.

Visit Microsoft's websitre and look for tips on running old software is some sort of XP-mode or virtual-mode to get your old software to work.

Dean--

Thank you. I ran the windows compatibility wizard on Autosketch and "a miricle occurred". It no longer reports a missing dll and seems to run just fine using XP compatibility settings.
