Try bizhawk, mednafen or yabause for Saturn (yabause has the worst sound but some games only work on it). I had an issue with the yaba sanshiro version so a word of warning there, it made the bios bootup stop working in my normal yabause 0.9.15.
I was using demul for atomiswave stuff, and SSF was perfect for Saturn's Bulk Slash, while on yabuse it crash after one minute. SSF was working great and fast on my old hardware and I do not understood why it won't work on newer one.
I am not sure if "update" is a good word here. When I first run new laptop most emulators do not work. I install latest DirectX and it doesn't help too. So I start to install manually all directX versions I were using before. In most cases it solved issues. I belive Windows7 lacks some old ddl's that were in Vista (I might be wrong and case might be different from SSF or demul, anyway that is my long story).
Those are directx errors, so I would try emulating directx 9 (or 10, whichever your old setup was using). I'm not familiar with current windows software, but there are some things you could try:
0. (this is what I would do) find newer emulation software that runs on your native configuration 1. using compatibility mode to mimic your old setup 2. using a virtual machine to emulate windows vista 3. using third-party software to run in directx9 or to emulate directx 9 4. (not recommended) alter your system's native config to use directx 9(again: not recommended)
Like I said: I'm not familiar with current Windows software, so you'll have to ask around for recommendations on specific software to use for virtual environments.
