Here's a couple postings about ETKA on XP I saved some time ago.  I can't recall, but I used one or the other to make ETKA run on my XP box.
  I think on XP there is a "Win 95" compatibility mode / program option which will allow ETKA to run right out of a fresh install, however those instructions below will also work.

I have just installed a copy of the Family Album that I received from a
fellow lister quite some time ago (Thank You!) and am getting a HARDLOCK
Error # 17, which is a License not present error. I am running Win XP Pro.
