Will Lotus 123 ver 9.5 work on Win XP on a Core 2 Duo processor?

I have a fully functional set of 123 applications that run successfully under Windows XP on a Dell Dimension 4550. I recently bought a new Dell Inspiron 530 with Win XP and while the application appears to run okay, my legacy spreadsheets have errors all over them. The sheet to sheet links will not resolve properly and return error results instead of fetched values. I set up a new sheet and tried to create new links thinking something happened during the file imports, but the newly created links fail aswell. I was led to believe that Win XP on a core2duo processor was backward compatible with older versions of software running on standard intel processors. Now I am beginning to wonder. I am running Lotus 123 as part of Smartsuite 9.5. I have a preinstalled verions of Win XP, SP3. The specific cell syntax that fails is: +<<c:123filesOldfilename.123:>>A:A1 This instruction tells the current sheet to locate oldfilename.123 in the 123files folder and fetch the contents from cell A1 on sheet A. This works perfectly on my older Dell 4550. Does anyone know of any patches or updates that can be obtained to make this version of Lotus123 work on a Core2Duo version of the Dell Inspiron processors> Thanks in advance.

Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

Problem Solved:

After much analysis, I discovered an error in the folder name on the newer Dell which was causing the 123 macro to look at the wrong folder for link resolution. The folder name was set up as <b>123 files</b> and should have been <b>123files</b>. Once corrected, the 123 inter sheet links performed as expected.
