Can not open some programs in XP

I have tried to open my Drafix QuickCad by the desktop shortcut and also using the link in the all programs menu, and program will not load. When I use the restart computer button the program will start and appear just before the computer shuts down. I have recently downloaded service pack 3 for Windows XP. I have three different type design programs and none will open until the computer will start shuting down. The programs do not show up in the add/remove program in the control panel. My Open Office program works fine and will open as normal.

I have had a similar problem with my version of Musictime by Passport. Worked fine for many years on win95 and eariler win 3.5. Now I get "Anastasia font" when I open the program. Solution: there is an upload from GVOX about $70. Or , upgrade to Encore, which is XP compatible. Otherwise , Setup
the program and tick fonts only , each time you startup the computer.

Cannot get quickcad to function in Windows 8


If you just allowed a windows update, you should know the answer to your problem. I had to use a retail windows disc to get a new gateway notebook to install windows 8 because gateways recovery disc's wouldn't work & yes I know which BIOS setting to use. back to your problem, windows 8 updating has caused a ton of problems with new PC's. So my advise to you is use an earlier restore date & see if that fixes your problem. As for update settings. I always use "Allow me to decide what to download & install" & friend Microsoft adds that screwed up popup at the bottom of the desktop like you're making a mistake by choosing that option however, half of those updates just take up hard drive space. I only install hardware installs & net framework. Both of which I can remove if need be [running windows 7 on 5 laptops/notebooks & 1 with 8 on it....] Good luck with yours....

Hi,

Welcome to Fixya. Have you tried running the software in Compatibility Mode? Depending on your version of Windows 7, you may have the ability to run it in Compatibility Mode. Try right-clicking on the Photo Explosion shortcut that is on your Desktop. Then, go to Properties from the pop-up menu. Then, select the Compatibility tab. On that tab, put a check next to "Run the program in compatibility mode for:". Then, select Windows XP SP2. Click on the OK button to save this setting. Finally, try launching the program again.

If you have questions please let me know. Thanks for using Fixya.

My creata card gold 3 does not work in my new window 7 How can I correct this, I am afraid to download a new driver for fear of crashing. TY Ria


Try changing the compatability. Right click on the desktop shortcut for My creata card gold 3 and choose properties from the menu that right-clicking opens. This will open the properties window. There are three tabs near the top labeled "general", "shortcut" and "compatablility". Click on Compatablility. Check the box marked "run this program in compatability mode for:" When you check the box, the drop-down menu below will light up and you can select the system you used previously.
