When an application fails to run, start the Program Compatibility Wizard by clicking on Start \ Control Panel and select 'Use an older program with this version of Windows' listed at the bottom of the side bar.
-Click Next to start the wizard.
-In the next screen, I like to choose the first option instead of hunting around for the program executable. If you do know where the executable resides, select the third option. -Click Next to continue.
-Once the list is displayed, scroll through and find the application you want to run in Compatibility mode. -Click Next to continue.

-Select the version of Windows, the application was originally written to run on. If you do not know, start out with Windows XP (SP2). One advantage of using the wizard is the test mode functionality shown later.
--The next screen list options if your program has problems handling the higher quality video of Vista. For now, click Next to continue. After the wizard completes and the test fails, you will have the option to return to this screen. Experiment with the settings by starting off with disabling visual themes and desktop composition, if you can't get things working.
The below table list definitions for each setting:

  • Run in 256 colors - This forces the entire screen to 256 colors while the application is running
  • Run in 640×480 screen resolution — Runs the program in a smaller-sized window. Try this setting if the graphical user interface appears jagged or is rendered improperly.
  • Disable visual themes - Disables themes on the program. Try this setting if you notice problems with the menus or buttons on the title bar of the program.
  • Disable desktop composition - Turns off transparency and other advanced display features. Choose this setting if window movement appears erratic or you notice other display problems.
  • Disable display scaling on high DPI settings - Turns off automatic resizing of programs if large-scale font size is in use. Try this setting if large-scale fonts are interfering with the appearance of the program.
-Next, if the application requires Administrative privileges, select this option. --Otherwise click Next.
--NOTE--: You will have the option to return to this setting if the program fails to run during the test.
-On the next screen, click Next to test the application. If successful select the first option and click Next to continue.
-If the application failed to run or has problems (such as video), select the second option to go back and make additional changes.
---After a successfull test, select either Yes or No to send information to Microsoft, then click Finish to save your settings.
To reset the compatibility settings back to the original settings, run the wizard again and in the 'Select a compatibility mode for the program', select the last option to 'not apply a compatibilty mode'.
-One big advantage to using the Program Compatibility Wizard, is that you can view which programs or applications are running in compatibility mode by running the wizard and checking the settings column.
-If running an older software application in compatability mode fails, check the software manufacturer site for information or updates to the software.

Unfortunately software you are trying to use is not written for Windows Vista, there is no alternative for it sorry :(

I don't have the soft ware to use it in my pc, but ihave the product. what to do.


http://www.opendrivers.com/driver/233207/umax-astrapix-pc100-digital-camera-driver-windows-98se-me-2000-xp-free-download.html

Try to search the Internet using a search engine like Bing.com or Google.com.

Enter 'Umax AstraPix PC100 Driver' and you should come up with a variety of sites that maintain the driver for your personal web camera.

Note that some older cameras do not work on Windows 7. You did not specify what operating system you have on your pc.

Good luck on this installation.

I have bouht hp deskjet d1500 series ihave fitted it but it said ihave to upgrade my computer to 200 from 98 please could you helpme thankyourita


  The problem is that this particular Deskjet does not have any software drivers that are compatible with Windows 98.  Only for Operating Systems that are running Windows 2000 or later. Which includes XP and Vista. The only alternative is to do some research on other printers and make sure that they will be compatible with windows 98.
 Of course, there is always an option to upgrading your computer to  Windows 2000 or Xp....
