Screen display problems when running Adventures in Typing

Installation seemed to work fine on XP machine, but when I run the program, it starts out ok typing the D-I-S-N-E-Y, then changes to a funky x-ray like color scheme. I have set compatibility properties to run for Win95 and tried 256-color. Nothing helps. I ran this program on another XP machine and worked ok.

    Yes, I have the same problem. I returned the first game. It was messed up from the start. The seond game worked for a bit then screen went blank and the color scheme was all pixeled and mixed up. The box actually says will work on Windows 98SE and above. I have vista. Any ideas?

Hi Mum :-)
Video problems with Adventures in typing with Timone and Poomba

There are compatibility issues with Windows Vista and this program

To overcome these problems we need to force windows Vista to use an
older Video format (from the days when the program was first published).


A short cut has been created and placed on your desktop.
The compatibility (properties) on the short cut have been set to –

  • Windows 95
  • 256 colours
  • 640 x 480

To create the short cut –
Place the CD-rom in the Disc bay and hold down the Shift key while the the CD-rom boots up. This prevents Autorun.
Now use Windows Explorer to look at the files and folders on the CD-rom.
Look for the Setup.exe file.
Right click on it to create a short cut that will be placed on your desktop.
Go to the short cut and right click on it to select the properties.
Now change the compatibility to the settings mentioned above.
Remove the CD-rom from the disc bay.

This is how to use the program Adventures in typing with Timone and Poomba on a computer running Windows Vista

  1. Do not put the CD-rom in the computer until you are asked
  2. Indentify the shortcut/icon on your desktop to start the program
    Click on this shortcut/icon
  3. When the computer asks for the CD-rom, place it in the disc bay and wait for the program to start.
  4. Use the program as normal.
  5. To quit the program so that it saves the progress you have made – use the QUIT symbol in the program’s screen
  6. When the program has shut-down, remove the CD-rom from the disc bay
Note that steps 1 through to 7 have to be done every time the program is started and stopped.

You will not have to do anything to put settings back to where they should be – Windows Vista will do that automatically.

This is how to stop any program if you are having problems and can not see how to stop it.
  1. Press the following two keys together Ctrl Alt
  2. While holding those two keys down, press a third key – the Delete key
  3. A menu will pop up.
    Click once on the Task Manager option
  4. A new window will open with a list of the programs that are running on your computer. Click once on the program that is causing the problem.
  5. At the bottom of the new window click on End Task
  6. The program that was causing the problem will be shut down for you.
Note that using this method is a sort of emergency stop so it will not save any new work you have done on the program/file.

I want driver of shro am-400 for win vista plz do needfull


Hi there,

Well sorrsy to say but there is no win vista driver's for this model, anyway there is a way to use windows xp drivers in windows vista, follow the below steps -
1. Click the "Start" menu in the lower left-hand corner of the Windows Vista screen.
2. Select "Run" from the Start menu.
3. Type "msconfic" in the Run box. Click "OK." A window will appear that lists all of the programs scheduled to run when Windows Vista is turned on. Uncheck all unessential software programs. Be sure to leave critical programs checked, such as antivirus and firewall programs. Click "OK."
4. Click the "Start" menu and select "Restart" to reboot the computer.
5. Open "My Computer" (located in the Start menu or on the Vista desktop).
6. Double-click the "C:\\" drive. Find the installation directory for the Windows XP program or device that you wish to run in Windows Vista. The installation directory is usually given the name of the program, the program's manufacturer, or a shortened version of either of these two options.
7. Right-click the program or driver. Select the "Properties" option in the pop-up menu that appears.
8. Click the "Compatibility" tab in the window that appears. Check the box next to the heading that reads, "Run this program in compatibility mode." In the drop-down menu, select "Windows XP." Click "OK" to close the window. The program or driver will now operate in Windows Vista in Windows XP compatibility mode, allowing the driver to function as it did in Windows XP. Note that the Windows XP driver will not be able to take advantage of any of the new features in Windows Vista while it is running in compatibility mode.

Installation path change


Change The Default Location For Installing Apps -----------------------------------------------
As the size of hard drives increase, more people are using partitions to separate and store groups of files.
XP uses the C:\Program Files directory as the default base directory into which new programs are installed. However, you can change the default installation drive and/ or directory by using a Registry hack.
Go to :-
- Start > Run
- Type “regedit” (without “” NOOBS!)
- Go to this directory… HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion
- Look for the value named ProgramFilesDir. by default,this value will be C:\Program Files. Edit the value to any valid drive or folder and XP will use that new location as the default installation directory for new programs.
