I cannot install DK 'Become a World Explorer' at all from the disc supplied. There are no error messages. Not sure if it is the disc itself or the drive. Cheers.

SOURCE: New computer, Windows vista does not accept our DK learning discs

Hello acdangerfield

I have checked on the DK Multimedia website, and these programs should be compatible with Vista.

One thing you can try is this:

1. Navigate your way to "My Computer" > "Local Disk (usually C:) > "Program Files" > and then the folder the program is stored in.

2. Right-click on the program launch icon and left-click on properties.

3. Click on the "Compatibility" tab.

4. Check the box that says "Run this program in compatibility mode for:"

5. Click on the arrow pointing down and select a previous version of Windows. I would recommend XP.

6. Click on "OK", and try to run the program again.

I hope this helps. If not, please don't hesitate to contact me.

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 .

completely uninstall everything associated with the initial install of the camera, might require going into the registry and looking for any instance of the camera. Before you try reinstalling, make sure you have the most recent version of explorer as new scripts require updated IExplorer.
