Most programs written for Windows XP also work in this version of Windows, but some older programs might run poorly or not at all. If an older program doesn't run correctly, use the Program Compatibility Wizard to simulate the behavior of earlier versions of Windows.
• Open the Program Compatibility Wizard by clicking the Start button I am trying to move - getopencontent.aspx?assetid=4f6cbd09-148c-4dd8-b1f2-48f232a2fd33&documentset=en-us&renderkey=xml, clicking Control Panel, clicking Programs, and then clicking Use an older program with this version of Windows.

Connection to update server failed, error code 12152 for Bookkeeper updates


A lot of people seem to have had major problems trying to upgrade for this software. Some have spent many hours waiting on the phone, and decided to move to different software.
"Dog Lover" offers this guidance:
If you are updating your software follow carefully (1) first back up your database and email to yourself (2) wipe bookkeeper completely off your computer (3) download the newer software and install the tax tables (4) finish updating (because it downloads to a newer software version within 2011) the program. When everything is updated, (5) save your database to your desktop (6) open bookkeeper and restore your database. Then make another update with the upgraded database.
Lets hope it is still true for 2013/14

Can not get Adobe PhotoDeluxe2.0 to install on windows 7. Worked fine on Vista


Adobe Photo Deluxe is an older program that does not seem to be compatible with Windows 7. you should contact Adobe to see if they have an updated version.

However, you can try the following to see if it will help.
If the program is not compatible, then you may try to install and run the program in compatibility mode.
Use the following steps:
1)Right click on the Program
2)Click on Properties
3)Click on Compatibility tab
4)Select Run this program in compatibility mode and select Windows Vista or whatever operating system the program was running successfully.

My Art Explosion Greeting Card Deluxe Factory 2 software will not work on my Toshiba Satellite A200 laptop. I am using Windows Vista. Please can you advise?


Unfortunately the Windows OS has changed significantly since that software was released. Nova Developement now has the Greeting Card Factory Deluxe version 8 for XP/Vista/7.

If you have the 64-bit Vista, you may not be able to get the old software to work and need the upgrade or a virtual computer with an older Windows OS (see below). To check your OS version, click Start > Control Panel > System and Security > System .

You can try running the program in the compatibility mode - this will work best with software for XP not Win95-NT. Right click on the installer and select Properties. Go to the Compatibility tab and choose Run this program as compatible with (an older version of Windows). Click on the check box and use the drop-down menu to select the older OS. Save the change by clicking apply then close the window. Right click again on the installer and choose Run as Administrator.

If the program installs, do the same compatibility steps for the program's exe file itself. (You don't need to run as administrator though.)

Alternatively, you can run a dual boot or virtual computer with an older Windows OS. (Programs like Virtual PC, Parallels and VMWare let you run a virtual computer inside the Vista system with a computer that can handle virtualization.) Unfortunately, you usually need a licensed version of Windows to do this. (Win7 Pro and Ultimate let you do this free with Virtual PC and XP mode.) Then install the software normally in the virtual computer or when booted into the older version of Windows. File transfer can be tricky with the virtual computer - you need to save files to external media (flash drive or optical disc). Printers can't be installed on both the real and virtual computer at the same time.

I hope this helps.

I cant get the disk to work with windows vista.. Is there a solution for my problem?


Try this. I found this on the microsoft website.
Most games written for earlier versions of Windows also work in this version of Windows, but some older games might run poorly or not at all. If an older game doesn't run correctly, use the Program Compatibility Wizard, which will simulate an earlier version of Windows.

1. It's the main problem with Vista! It don't support applications / softwares which are 16-bit (Only 32-bit applications are supported!).

2. It hardly support any application older than Windows XP (which runs on Windows 95/98/NT/Me)!

3. Try to download the updated version of your applications from internet which are Windows Vista compatible.

4. Then install these updated versions.

Bookkeeper 2009 running very slowly.


Interesting. It may be that software is using more memory; when your computer runs out of memory, it starts using your hard drive for temporary (memory) use, which is painfully slow. You haven't said anything about your computer. (e.g., is this XP with 512mb or less? Vista with 1gb or less?)

A suggestion, if I may: Before worrying about your hardware, just make sure your software is up to date. This support note here tells you how to make sure you've got the latest patches to that software. It's on a different topic, but the advice is right.
