Hi there. Common error. Just uninstall GIMP, re-boot and then reinstall only from www.gimp.com (nowhere else). That should do it.

I just installed gimp 2.6.11, but when I try to open it, it opens only halfway than shuts down right away. I had an older version in here which worked perfectly. Help would be welcomed! Thanx


Try restarting your computer and then try to open the program again.
If that doesn't fix it, Uninstall GIMP and re-download the program and install again.
If the problem persists after that, check CNET downloads for previous versions that would be compatible with your computer.

Have Windows 7 Home Premium (64-bit)on a new HP laptop computer. Am trying to install PrintMaster Gold 2.0. I get error messages when it is nearly installed. Broderbund told me it is compatible with...


Not compatible or not working well with windows 7?
(make your program/application run with windows 7)

Maybe, It doesn't work because the driver/application you installed is for other versions of operating system. I am also using windows 7 like you so don't you worry, You can still use your old installer/driver from other versions of operating systems. Just remember that before installing any program in a windows 7 Operating System Computer, Use "troubleshoot compatibility". Right Click the Icon of your program installer/application first, then choose "troubleshoot compatibility". This will allow you to choose on what type operating system your program will run. Just reply back if it still doesn't work.:D rate and vote for me:))

I'm trying to install Pagemaker 6.5 on new computer with Windows 7 home premium. Not working. Any ideas.


I'm afraid you have a problem. Windows 6.5 doesn't run well on Windows XP, and PageMaker 7.0 can't be installed on Windows Vista at all and there is no patch for it, so most likely, your PageMaker 6.5 won't run on Windows 7. Sorry. :(

I'll research a little more and post if I find anything different, but I'm pretty confident that it won't run

Can't determine which version of vista is installed


Hi there.
It should be printed on the sticker on the underside of the laptop which version Vista it has installed.
If you ask the seller if computer supports the Aero graphics interface you will be able to determine which of the two it is, if the seller says yes then it will be Home Premium, if he says no then it will be Home basic.

Good luck and thanks for using FixYa!!

Burner does not finalize discs


Microsoft has confirmed that this is a problem in the Microsoft products that are listed in the "Applies to" section.

APPLIES TO
  • Windows Vista Ultimate
  • Windows Vista Starter
  • Windows Vista Home Premium
  • Windows Vista Home Basic
  • Windows Vista Enterprise
  • Windows Vista Business 64-bit Edition
  • Windows Vista Business
  • Windows Vista Ultimate 64-bit Edition
  • Windows Vista Home Premium 64-bit Edition
  • Windows Vista Home Basic 64-bit Edition
  • Windows Vista Enterprise 64-bit Edition

After you install Windows Vista on a computer that uses an SiI Parallel Advanced Technology Attachment (PATA) chip from Silicon Image, the computer does not recognize an attached optical drive as a drive that supports recording. Therefore, you cannot use the computer to burn CDs or DVDs.
This problem occurs because the SCSIport driver does not populate the correct number of bytes for an IOCTL_STORAGE_QUERY_PROPERTY Request Packet (IRP) when the device does not return a correct serial number.
Service pack information loadTOCNode(2, 'resolution'); To resolve this problem, obtain the latest service pack for Windows Vista or download the following Hotfix.
