Where did you get the copy of Win7 you installed?

Are you certain that worked correctly?

What software was this?

Did those messages come from Win7 or the software you installed?

I'm afraid my take from here is pilot error.  When you don't actually
know what you're doing, problems arise.

You got DOS and DOS apps in the old days, got them to where you
wanted, and stopped.  If what you have does what you need, splendid.
If it doesn't, you are looking at stepping beyond DOS.  That will mean
either a flavor of Windows or a flavor of Linux.  Either way, there's
a learning curve you're stuck with, and you need to learn more about
and better understand what your options are.

Proceeding without knowledge is a good way to shoot yourself in *both* feet.
