Claris stopped working .... help

Claris stopped working .... help

I have an old version of Claris - version 5 for Windows, which
I have run successfully with WinXP until recently. A week or two back it stopped working for no obvious reason.

Now I've tried to reload it from the supplied disc, and the installer won't run. Maybe it's time to put this out to grass, but it's a shame as there are tools in there which I use.

Firstly, has anyone else had this experience? Looking at my installation CD it does say Win95 and NT 4.0, so maybe I was luck it worked at all. It's odd that it just stopped though.

If I could get it working again I'd be very pleased. Any suggestions for what's happened, and what I can do to fix it? Could it be being mistaken for spyware by one of the anti-spyware tools?

If I could get a version of AppleWorks which would run on WinXP without costing a fortune that'd be a suitable alternative.
