Question about Dk Multimedia Eyewitness Virtual Reality Bird (790778054946)

1 Answer

BIRD.EXE won't run

My sister gave me DK BIRDS in its original package. It is in the Eywitness Virtual Rality Series and copywrite 1996. The back cover says it will run under Windows XP, which is on my four year old XP Pravilion. The first error message says that the sound decomression software hasn't been installed properly and suggests I run Setup again. I've tried that several times to no avail. The second error message says that "BIRD caused a General Protection Fault in module BIRD.EXE at 0007:05ED"

Can I download a working copy of BIRD.EXE?

This is my second try ad submitting this question. The first try gave me the opition of posting the problem and getting a guarinteed solution, which looked like a good idea untill I tried it and was asked for my credit card so I could pay $10 for the service. I tried to go back to get a cheaper response but my question, better spelled than this version, was all gone. I therefore suggest that you modify your website to give folks a second chance at paying for the privilage of givening you feedback on your softeware.

Thank you again for your kind attention.

What kind of seed should I put in my bird feeder?


1) Different birds like different kinds of seeds. For example, almost all birds enjoy sunflower seeds. Other popular seeds include safflower, corn, Millet, Milo, Nyjer and Suet. If you know of a certain species of bird that lives near you, you can check the chart on this website to see what seeds that bird enjoys.

Why don't birds fall off their perches while they sleep?


Birds have tendons on their feet, called flexor tendons, which respond well to pressure. This allows them to sleep comfortably on a perch without the worry of falling off. These tendons run down the back of a birds leg all the way to the tips of their toes. As the bird lands on a perch, the tendons pull on the toes and close them tightly.

Is it necessary to cover my bird's cage at night?


This depends on your birds. If noise/light does not interrupt your bird from sleep than you should be fine without; however if your bird is easily disturbed, you may want to try using a cover so that they remain undisturbed.

Is it true that cage cover make birds sleepier?


Yes! Even when it is dark, some birds will not go to sleep until the cage cover is on. It indicates to them that it is bed time. I can tell you that my birds insist that I'll have their cage cover on and I find that they settle down faster and go to sleep sooner.

I have original eyewitness encyclopedia space universe cd. but when i install it a error message shown in the computer. "[1058] the sound decompression software has not been install properly. please...


Hi ,
This product is not compatible with Windows 7 but it should run under Windows XP . If you are running under XP , I suggest you delete the program , reboot your machine and reinstall the program under Windows XP . If it still fails , you could need to reinstall Win XP or use the recovery disc . Launch the disc , select " install a new version of XP " and choose " repair " when you'll be asked to .
Make first sure you have installed SP3 and tested your program with XP fully updated .
Best regards ,
fanaudi .

Bee-eater battery is dead (RSPB Birds collection) can I replace it?


On the back is a course thread holding together a rough seam. Cut that once and the seam opens to reveal a small cloth pouch containing the unit. It might be stitched in (and shut) as well. remove another stitch from the bag and remove the device. unscrew the battery cover, replace the 3 LR44/SR44/357/303 button cells (one battery, four names!) and stuff back in bird. I used a paper stapler to close up my incision. Works for me! Hooty is now in bed with all his other Audubon bird friends and Luke is all better now.

The batteries are $2.50 for 10 on Amazon. Saves buying a $7 bird with $.75 of batteries.
