The answer to the question varies according to the program and it's registration process. Some software requires registration and can only be installed on one system without requiring additional licensing fees, others do not.

Example: Microsoft Office 2007 retail edition can be installed on 2 systems (One Desktop, One Portable) without encountering additional fees.

Some programs will install and will later require activation to maintain full functionality. Some programs require you uninstall the application on the 1st system before installing on the next system.

Aside from trial and error, your best bet is to contact the program vendor directly and find out what your license entitles you to do with the product.

Your complaint is the reason that Windows Vista has mostly gone down in history as a "lemon" operating system.. It really wasn't all that bad... but its reputation is that bad. Still, if your computer is a really good one, I would recommend having the Windows 7 operating system installed in it. I'll tell you what has helped me the most on my old Windows Vista..... besides uninstalling software that I had a suspicion was conflicting with the rest of my programs.... and that was installing the Eusing Registry Cleaner.. It's free and seems to do a good job. Download, install and run Eusing through its paces a couple of times.. I'll bet you see an improvement.. Also, you might want to uninstall any programs you know you don't need. It also might help for you to, in your bottom, left-hand corner, run the msconfig program, and work on your Start Menu.. You'll find all kinds of garbage trying to start up as soon as you start up your computer... and much of it is totally unnecessary on startup and causes your computer to run like molasses.. You might want to get some assistance from a knowledgeable friend before trying something like this... If you wanted to try it on your own, there are a lot of helpful sites on the web. To uninstall most undesirable programs, you need to get into the Control Panel.. then on into something like "Programs & features".... and start uninstalling... BUT ONLY what you know you don't want or need. NOW, what you might want to consider is to go treat yourself to a new computer... You'll find a lot of really good computers at some really good prices... and you know you deserve a new one..

How do I use Microsoft Works 2000 on Windows Vista? I bought a new computer and, of course, it would have Vista on it. I hate Vista, but that's beside the point. I especially need the program, Picture It...


Start Vista's "Program Compatibility Wizard".
Say that you want to install a Windows XP program.
Choose the 'setup.exe' on the CD-ROM drive, and install the software.

Installing palm on new computer


There is no way to download from a PALM. The only option is to syncronize or sync different programs. You will need to install the original program that created the database for the palm, and then set that program to sync to to PALM.
