Installing my handspring visor onto Vista

When I install the software with the CD-ROM, I get a message that the installation was unsucessful when I try to hot sync. When I look for help it indicates there is a problem with Vista. Can you help me. I have a lot of data that I want to use on my Visor.

Installing the jumpstart advanced 1stgrade cd rom that has 4 cds to it and I can't get it to install.


Jumpstart advanced 1stgrade cd rom installation.

System Requirements
Windows: 98/ME/2000/XP; Pentium II 266MHz (Pentium II 300MHz or faster for XP); 64 MB RAM (128 MB RAM for XP); 100 MB HD; 12x CD-ROM drive; 16-Bit color; Windows compatible sound card

If you are installing on a newer OS ie Vista, or Win 7, due to software incompatibility the software might not install, or even you can install the software might no work.

You can try using the "compatibility mode" in Vista or Win 7 to install the programs as "administrator" but no guarante this will work.

Alternatively, you can get a newer version which is compatible to your Operating System.

Hope it helps.

For old Futura software optional features (AutoPunch,Photostitch etc.) can be installed only from original CD. You may upgrade your software to version 2.5.0.x that has more features and more flexible installation procedure, you may ask your closest Singer supplier about it.

Canon MP500 all in one printer is not compatible with Windows Vista. Is there a solution for this problem, or do I need to buy a different printer?


My Canon PIXMA MP500, purchased in mid-2006, came with the (then) ScanSoft OmniPage SE2 software on a CD. The PC had WinXP Installed. I had no use for the ScanSoft it so I made no effort to install it.
Fast Forward:
Two PC crashes later, July 2009. Using Win Vista Home Premium
LOST, important WinWord document file, only a hard copy available.
I tried to recover, scanning the "Xerox" copy. The SE Version of OmniPage was very complicated but I succeeded in producing a replacement *.doc file.

It appears that newer editions of WinVista contain the right printer drivers for this Canon Model.

Tray starter and InstantWrite Control Center have stopped working!


I just read on another website that the program "Pinnacle CD/DVD Suite" is the problem. It gets installed along with Wordperfect and it needs to be un-installed. I had the same problem with the 2 pop-ups and then when I tried to put in a cd with pictures on it, my computer crashed. I have just un-installed the Pinnacle CD/DVD Suite on my computer and the messages are gone and I can run cd's again!!

Old VISOR


Congratulations on your 'first generation' Handspring Visor purchase. While perhaps 'old technology' in the techno world, I am still using mine today. To answer your question, your Visor is simply attempting to 'synch' with your desktop files (to ensure you have the correct data in both places. Your error stems from the fact that the unit is 'searching' for your desktop files to perform that handshake. Like an unanswered telephone; your Visor 'hangs up.' You will need to install the software on your PC. Yes, there is still software out there. ;-)
