AppLocker is a new feature of Windows 7, which ensures that users can run programs that you specify.

Since October 31, 2013, Windows 7 is no longer available in retail (except for the Professional edition preinstalled):[6]
Windows 7 Starter Windows 7 Starter is the edition of Windows 7 that contains the fewest features. It is only available in a 32-bit version and does not include the Windows Aero theme. The desktop wallpaper and visual styles (Windows 7 Basic) are not user-changeable. Microsoft originally intended to restrict users of this edition to running three simultaneous applications but this limitation was dropped.[7]This edition was available pre-installed on computers, especially netbooks, through system integrators or computer manufacturers using OEM licenses.[1][8][9] Windows 7 Home Basic Windows 7 Home Basic was available in "emerging markets", in 141 different countries.[10] Some Windows Aero options are excluded along with several new features.[1] Home Basic, along with other editions sold in emerging markets, include geographical activation restriction, which requires users to activate Windows within a certain region or country.[11] Windows 7 Home Premium This edition contains features aimed at the home market segment, such as Windows Media Center, Windows Aero and multi-touch support.[12] Windows 7 Professional This edition is targeted towards enthusiasts and small-business users.[1] It includes all the features of Windows 7 Home Premium, and adds the ability to participate in a Windows Server domain.[1] Additional features include support for up to 192 GB of Random-access memory (increased from 16 GB),[13] operating as a Remote Desktop server, location aware printing, backup to a network location, Encrypting File System, Presentation Mode, Software Restriction Policies (but not the extra management features of AppLocker) and Windows XP Mode.[1] Windows 7 Enterprise This edition targeted the enterprise segment of the market and was sold through volume licensing to companies which have a Software Assurance contract with Microsoft.[1] Additional features include support for Multilingual User Interface(MUI) packages, BitLocker Drive Encryption, and UNIX application support.[1] Not available through retail or OEMchannels, this edition is distributed through Microsoft Software Assurance (SA).[1] As a result it includes several SA-only benefits, including a license allowing the operating of diskless nodes (diskless PCs) and activation via VLK.[14] Windows 7 Ultimate Windows 7 Ultimate contains the same features as Windows 7 Enterprise, but unlike the Enterprise edition, it was available to home users on an individual license basis.[1] Windows 7 Home Premium and Windows 7 Professional users are able to upgrade to Windows 7 Ultimate for a fee using Windows Anytime Upgrade if they wish to do so.[1] Unlike Windows Vista Ultimate, the Windows 7 Ultimate edition does not include the Windows Ultimate Extras feature or any exclusive features as Microsoft had stated.[1] All editions will receive Mainstream Support (new features and bug fixes) until January 2015 and Extended Support (security updates) until January 2020.[15]

I have just got a new computer. A Gateway PC running Windows 7/ 64 bit. After installation of ONE I get a dialog box stating " cannot execute machnm1.exe - What can I do to complete the installation? I have my ID and Password but can't get to the screen to enter them. Rod Griffiths rgriffiths@rogers.com


Hi,
I'm not familiar with ONE, and am assuming it's a software program.
Try running 7 in XP Mode for proper emulation of the program in question in a 64 bit environment when BIOS requests Machnm32.sys which is probably the culprit (Machnm64.sys in 64 bit environments). Both should be present. This should allow you to continue as many older softwares will not function properly in the 7 environment but, 7 has many built in features to allow for this. Your program may not have the proper drivers to operate in a 64 bit system/chipset.

Hope this helps.

I am trying to install my old software on my new computer. After hitting the "Install personal patterns for children - special edition" I get an error message stating: could not execute external program D:/ppchildinstallspecial.exe. This is the Instant Stitch perconal patterns for children CD


Open "My Computer".
Double-click the icon for the CD-drive.
Look for that 'ppchild' file.
Or, look for an 'setup' file or an 'install' file.
Double-click one of those files, to restart the installer.

If it still fails, then your new computer (running Windows 7) probably has recognized that the program is _NOT_ compatible with Windows 7. So, start the Windows "Program Compatibility Wizard", and tell it that you want to install a Windows XP program on your new computer.
