Can i run windows 8.1 64mb if i have 32bit operating system installed ram 8gb with 2.97 usage x64-based prossesr


You would have to install Win 8.1 64 bit from scratch; new copy with new license. Then you'll have to reinstall all of your old 32 bit programs, some may not work on 64 bits.

Have need for speed run installed on a previos computer have tried to reinstall cannot proceed


In general you can un-install a game or other software from one computer and install on a new one with the same owner and same product key. Sometimes you may need a new product key, and will need to get in touch with the manufacturers.
You do not say what kind of computer/tablet ect you have, but if it uses Windows have you gone to Control Panel>Add or Remove Programs to try and remove it?

How to install games on computer?


Hi,

It just like other programs installed in your computer. You need a program/software of game installed on your PC ( PC games software usually packed in CD). Put your CD game on optical drive and has it installed on your PC. Then run your game, done.

Note that Some PC games need specific PC requirements ( See your game requirement before run it on your PC).

Is your new Dell desktop running Windows 7?

Are you using the "Program Compatibility Wizard" to install an XP/Vista application

If You run this program using another account than that, which was used to install it on 64bit windows, your account registry is missing "Program Directory" setting:

You should try to uninstall, and reinstall the game. If you are having trouble uninstalling, try this uninstallation program, Revo uninstaller, run this program to delete any game data.

Other wise, try and uninstall, or delete your game updates, and game mods you added.

Hope this helps.

Do not know how to install software


How to install a software program can depend on the operating system being used and the program being installed. Because of all the different possibilities, we have created the below steps as guidelines for installing programs in each of the major operating systems.
Notice: This document has been created as a basic overview on how to install software programs, games, and utilities on your computer. If errors are encountered during the installation, this document will not cover those errors.
General Tips
Microsoft Windows 95, 98, NT, ME, 2000, and XP users
MS-DOS Users
General Tips
  • Make sure your computer meets the requirements of the program, game, or utility you are attempting to install.
  • The manuals for the program or the readme file located in the same directory as the install commonly contain exact instructions on how to install a program.
  • After installing or during the installation, a program may need to install other programs, files, or utilities before it is able to run. If this is the case, the program will commonly prompt you to install the program or you may need to run a separate install before the program can be fully used.
  • When installing a program, utility, or game, it is always a good idea first to close or disable any other programs that are running.
  • After installing a new program if it prompts you to reboot the computer, do it.
Microsoft Windows 95, 98, NT, ME, 2000, and XP users Many software programs, games, and utilities have an AutoPlay feature that will automatically start the setup screen for the software program when the CD is placed in the computer. If your program, game, or utility contains this feature, run the installation through the screen that appears after inserting the disc.
If you are installing a program, game, or utility that does not contain this feature or you are installing a program from a floppy diskette, follow the below steps.
  1. Open My Computer.
  2. Within the My Computer window, open the drive that contains the installation files. For example, if the files are on a floppy diskette, open the A: drive. If they're on a CD or DVD open the D: drive or the letter of the disc drive.
  3. Within the drive that contains your files, locate either a setup or install file. Double-clicking on this file should start the installation for the program, game, or utility. If you see multiple setups or install files, try to locate the Application file or double-click each of setup or install files until you find the file that starts the installation. Many times the icons associated with the installation files have the same name.
An alternate method of starting the installation in Microsoft Windows
  1. Click Start and Run.
  2. In the Run Window, type x:\setup or x:\install where x is the letter of the drive you wish to start the installation from. For example, if you are attempting to install a program from the floppy disk drive you would type a:\setup or a:\install.
MS-DOS Users Users installing a program from Microsoft DOS should have a basic understanding of the MS-DOS commands. If you are unfamiliar with any of the commands listed below, click the link to get additional information and examples on the commands.
  1. Before installing a program in MS-DOS, you must switch to the drive and/or directory that contains the installation files. If you are installing a program from a CD or diskette, switch to that drive. Additional information about switching drives in Microsoft DOS can be found on document CH000515. If the installation files are located in a different directory, use the dir command to list the directories and the cd command to switch into the appropriate directory.
  2. Once you are in the directory or drive that contains the installation files, run the executable for the setup. Many times this can be done by typing setup or install at the prompt to start the installation. If both of these commands give a bad command or file name error message, type dir *.exe or dir *.com or dir *.bat. These commands will list any executable files; if any files are listed, attempt to execute these files to run the installation or setup of the program. If no files are listed when typing all three of the above commands, it is possible that either you are in the incorrect directory or drive letter, or that the program.
Additional information about running an file from MS-DOS can also be found on document CH000598.
Additional information:
  • Information about problems that can occur after an install can be found on document CH000123.
  • See document CH000506 for information about how to extract a file that you've downloaded before installing a program.

The game was released in 1998, and was developed for Windows 95/98.

To make the game run on Windows XP, try the compatibility for the installation and after it is installed use the same steps for making the game executable file compatible.

Note: Some game ".exe" file (executable file) would let you make changes in the Compatibility option, whereas older games might not give that option at all.

You can still try to make the game compatible for installing it on the Windows Vista by following the steps below.

1. Insert the game disc in your CD-ROM drive, if the game setup or the autorun starts, exit it.

2. Open "Computer", Right Click the Cd Drive which has the game disk in it and select "Copy".

3. Go to your "Desktop" right click and then select "New" and click on "Folder" this should create a new folder on your desktop.

4. Open the New Folder and then Right Click and select "Paste".

6. After all the files are copied to the "New Folder" without any error messages then locate the file "Setup.exe" or "Setup" and right click and click on "Properties".

7. In the new window click on the "Compatibility" tab and run the program in compatibility mode for "Windows 98/ Windows Me" and then click on "Apply". (You can also try "Windows 95")

8. After applying changes double click on "Setup.exe" or "Setup" to launch the installation.

You can delete all the files copied from the CD after completing the installation

After the game is successfully installed right click on the game shortcut or the game ".exe" in the root folder of the game and click and click on "Properties".

In the new window click on the "Compatibility" tab and run the program in compatibility mode for "Windows 98/ Windows Me" and then click on "Apply". (Again, you can also try "Windows 95")

The game files need to be copied to the hard drive because the files on the game disk would not let you make changes while on the disk.

There are lot of files that need to be changed in order to get full functionality and to communicate with operating system and the hardware, hence there is no guarantee that the game might run even in cases where you will successfully install an older version of the game with the above mentioned steps.

the worst that could happen is that the computer may not run the program. try installing the game, your cd (assuming that's the source of the setup files for the game) should not be affected.

after you install the program try to run it as usual by double clicking the icon to run the program if it doesn't run as expected try this.
1. right click the icon you use to run the game.
2. select properties
3. select the compatibility tab and select an appropiate mode. (ex. windows xp service pack 2)

not completely sure but you may also want to try to run the installation/setup program by changing the compatibility mode so you may be able to trick the program into believing the app/game is being installed on a windows xp service pack 2 system increasing your chances to have the installation running properly.
