    The router is Microsoft, Wired Base Station, Model MN100.

    Not sure what you mean by "CAT" leads. The cable modem is connected to the router and the router is connected to the computer. Are you saying that I don't need software if it's hooked up this way? Thanks in advance.

Hello Strunnell,

    Hello again,

    Sorry for the delay, but I have been ill....

    Yes that sounds like your connecting with CAT leads so you do NOT need any software to connect.

    However, you may need software to let your modem (or router) connect to the internet.

    Let me explain:

    On most routers you can "log in" to them....you sometimes type in the address of the router like 196,149,1,1 or something like that (it WILL tell you in the routers instruction book that came with it).

    once your in to the router you can change all your connection settings, like password, protocol, VPI, VCI etc etc etc....

    now your set up may not use that way of connecting, and if so you will have to add the router to the microsoft internet connections found in your control panel of windows.

    however, what i would do to start with is to uninstall any software that you have put on the computer to do with your set up and simply switch off the computer and un plug the router.

    the power on and when you get back to windows just plug the router back in.

    It should auto detect it and then...after 10 secs or so... click on your browser and you should be ok to surf the net.

    IF THAT DOES NOT WORK......

    The your will have to install the drivers for the router again.

    Let me know what happens.

Hi!

Instead of MS Office suite you can use the fully free OPEN OFFICE.ORG.
Please google for openoffice.org and you will get to the download.
It is a suite similar to MS Office, fully compatible with the MS file formats.
It containg among other programs the IMPRESS software similar to POWERPOINT. It offers even more features than POWERPOINT, example: making PDF from presentations.


Hope it helped,

Hi pjhmulder
Assuming MS Money 2001 and 2003 are compatible with W 7 , you could install MS Money 2003 on the new computer and copy the files from MS Money 2001 on the old computer to MS Money 2003 on the new computer . Make sure you don't erase the MS Money 2001 files before transfer has successfully been executed .

I have Mavis Beacon teaches typing cd and I am trying to install it on windows 7 but it wont install i can only read the manual that adobe lets me, my questions is how do i download the program to windows...


What version of the typing program do you have? You have a few choices, depending on what OS runs the version you have.

If the program ran under Vista or XP (version 20 lists Vista compatibility), the compatibility mode is likely to work. For this, right click on the installer. Then choose Properties and then the Compatibility tab. Turn on Run program as Compatible with the appropriate OS. Then right click again on the installer and choose Run as Administrator. Then check if the program itself is running in the compatibility mode by right clicking again and choosing Properties.

If the compatibility mode doesn't work (for older versions of the software), you can use a computer (virtual, dual-boot, or true second machine) with an older version of Windows installed. If you have Win7 Pro or Ultimate, you can create a virtual XP computer for free. Download and install Virtual PC and XP mode from Microsoft. Install them in order. Then install the XP software on the virtual computer and it will work. (Other virtual computer programs are Parallels and VMWare.) All of the other options will require a licensed version of the older Windows OS. Please note that the virtual computer can't share files directly with the main computer. You'll need to save files to external or removable media (optical media or flash drive, for example) to share them.

Your final option is to upgrade to the current version. The 25th Anniversary edition runs under Windows 7. Other editions are not listed as compatible at the Broderbund site. You can try the Microsoft Windows 7 Compatibility Center for more information on tested software. My ISP is slow to connect to the site.

I hope this helps.

I think this has nothing to do with the Operating System (Windows 7 or Vista). The issue may be because of the different versions of MS Office. As regards, MS Office 2007 files can be opened normally with Office 2007. However, if you wish to open Office 2007 files with Office 2003, you have to install MS Office compatibility Pack, which can be downloaded from Microsoft site.

Let me know if any further clarification/ assistance is required.


Hope it helps! Good Luck!

Can you borrow a computer that is running Windows XP, and restore your files to it?

Then, you can use a router to "network" that computer with your computer, and copy the files across the network, from that computer to your computer.

1. check to see if your pc is compatible with the software. You didn't specify if you are reloading or installing for the first time.
2.You didn't give hard drive capacity or any information about the Pc you are loading Windows on.
You may not have enough capacity on the hard drive to load the full XP
Wndows xp requires about 2 GB of hard drive space then at least 10 GB of space for swap files and operation files.
