Tip & How-To about Computers & Internet
So you just installed a program for Windows 7 which worked on Windows Vista, but now you are coming across nothing but problems. A lot of times these issues can be resolved simply and easily. Here's what you can do. This is to be understood that there is no patch for Windows 7 on the manufacturer's website:
If this program is in your Start Menu, right-click on it and select Open File Location. Right-click on the program you want to use and select Troubleshoot Compatibility.
In similar occasions when you attempt to start up a Setup.exe file, you may be prompted with the message that your current OS (Operating System) is not supported. You can use the same means to 'Troubleshoot Compatibility' in this situation too. This won't always work, but it's better than just sitting there moping, right?
In the Troubleshoot Compatibility Wizard, all you have to do is select the option that says, "This program worked in a previous version of Windows", then hit Next. Windows will do the rest.
Again, this won't always work. In certain situations the program you are using may just not have that compatibility and you may need to look for an alternative program to use to satisfy your needs.
