X86 is the 32bit instruction set (program code) that Pentium class processors understand. The android has an ARM processor which is not compatible unless the programs were 're-compiled' with an ARM processor. I'm not sure where you are reading this, but it will never be able to run x86 code without an interpreter or emulation. I would say, not to be mean or anything, but if you have to ask what 'x86 support' is, you probably don't need or care about it. For these applications ARM > x86

Software installation using vista basic


Very strange.

Do you get any error messages?
Are you able to download the programmes?

Vista works differently to previous versions of Windows, because of much improved protection. In essence you can no longer install programmes anywhere you want and you can no longer install programmes unless you have permission to do so.

There is a service called UAC which stands for User Access Control, which prevents normal users from installing software - only administrators are allowed to install software.

Even if you are the only user, you are not regarded as the administrator unless you say I am the admin.

When you click on something to download, at the top of the page a small wide yellow box will appear, right click on it and download the file.

Then when you run the installer another box will open asking if it can make the changes you want - you may need to give your password to continue.

Then install everything as their defaults. and all should be well.

Some older programmes do have problems - download them and SAVE then to your documents, then right click on the installer - you have a number of new options...

Run as Administrator (which may solve your problems)

Trouble shoot compatibility - which can resolve some older programme problems - you can set the system up to emulate Windows XP etc... which will solve most problems.

And if the installation fails it will ask if you want to re-install using default settings - say yes.

Finally, make sure you are downloading Vista compatible software and that it is the right software for your Operating system. You can not install 64bit (x64) software on a 32 bit (x86) machine.

If this helps you at all please vote!

I can make and receive calls, but I cannot hear anything.


Check Windows Sound mixer for application volume. Down in system tray at right side of taskbar double click sound icon for XP or click sound icon once and click Mixer for Vista. Look through volume settings for your phone application. Make sure it is not muted and volume is up.

When connecting, you must be sure the phone is set to connect to the model of bluetooth earphone you are using, and the connection goes through, Once it makes the connection, it will stal connected until you disconnect it, again using the phone's disconnect key.

Android Error


Hi there,

From the looks of it. your using the Android SDK right ?

have you declared layout_wilih attribute within the SDK? if not you must do that.

Also :
  1. Make sure that the SDK you are building with is the same version as the Android OS that you are running on.
  2. Make sure that you're calling setContentView() early in your onCreate() method. Calling other methods, such as setListAdapter() before calling setContentView() can sometimes create odd errors when Android tries to access screen elements that haven't been set before.
If you have any more problems. go over to http://code.google.com/android/ they will be able to help troubleshoot any more problems you may have !
