Thank you for your question, my name is Richard.

''this app can't run on your pc''

Thanks John, You need to update Lotus to the current version in order to run it with Windows 8.

Windows 8 is very different to 7 and has changed a lot of the internal libraries. This means older programs such as your version of Lotus is not able to install. There are many programs with this problem due to the changes in Windows 8.

You need to either revert back to Windows 7, or upgrade Lotus which you can do here.

If you would like any additional information or assistance, please do not hesitate to let me know.

And if you can take a second to rate my service, that would be greatly appreciated.

Thank you
