Old Version pushing CPU usage to 100%
I run a CQC system at my house as well as my parent's house.  My parent's computer went down a few months ago and because of COVID, I am just getting around to trying to replace it.  They have been running an older version of CQC (4.3.X I think).  It was running on an old 32bit machine.  

I have a copy of their CQC program folder that I moved to the new system.  When I "install" that version on the new 64bit machine, it seems to install correctly (no errors, etc), but it forces the i7 6700 CPU chip to run at 100% all the time.  There are 4-5 different CQC processes running in the background that combined go to 100%.  This behavior stays the same even after a reboot.  I can stop the CQC service and force close those processes and the CPU goes back to normal, but obviously I can't use CQC then.

I realize this is a pretty open ended question, but is there any places I should look to try to get this working normally?  I tried to search the forum to see if anyone else had a similar experience, but I wasn't able to find anything similar.

PS - I am installing the old version from a old zip download that I also had on the computer. It is the zip file that I would have initially used to install CQC on the old machine, but I guess I could always try to download it again to make sure there isn't anything corrupted.
