need Microsoft Home Publishing 2000 to work on Windows 7

I bought a new computer:
HP Pavilion P6774y PC
AMD Phenom II x4 840T Processor 2.90 GHz
6GB Ram 1Tb hard drive
Windows 7 Premium 64 Service Pack 1

On my last 2 computers with Windows 98 and Windows XP I could run my program
"Microsoft Home Publishing 2000" with no problems.
I used it for all kinds of projects. I am lost without it.
With this new computer, with Windows 7, the program will not work.
After I install it, and try to open it, the opening screen is not there. Just a blank screen.
I would really like to be able to use this program. Can anyone tell me if there is a way to make it work?
I tried the compatibility thing (changing it to windows xp 2) but it did nothing.
Please, can anyone help me? I am desperate.
Thank you.

I can't offer anything specific for that program.
I once had to get a 32 bit program working under Windows 7 and the method I used was with a utility called corflags.

Copy corflags to the folder that contains the program file.
Highlight the folder that contains the program file.
Hold down the Shift key and right click on the folder.
'Open Command Window Here' should be a menu choice.
Select it and the folder should open with a command prompt.

Type:
CorFlags.exe filename.exe /32BIT+
Replace filename with the file that starts the application.

The other solution is to pay M$ to upgrade to W7 Professional and run it out of a Virtual Machine.

I'll give it a try and see what happens. Thank you for answering.
