I have purchased turbotax deluxe & on loading program

Customer Question
I have purchased turbotax...

I have purchased turbotax deluxe & on loading program received message it would not support windows vista. Tried to have my computer upgraded it doesn’t have enough power to do so. Then tried to return program, would not help as pkg had been opened. Any suggestions?

Accountant's Assistant: What device or product does this involve?

Turbotax deluxe 2017 Canada, loading on hp laptop.

Accountant's Assistant: What HP model do you have?

Compaq Presario A. 900.

Accountant's Assistant: What have you tried so far with your Compaq? Have you installed any updates recently?

No. Took into computer store & he confirmed not enough power to upgrade to windows 7, 8 or 10.

Accountant's Assistant: Anything else you want the Computer Expert to know before I connect you?

Want to know if CD ive purchased could have key code changed to accommodate loading program directly from the internet without using windows.
