My ksuser dll for windows xp profesional


Just boot from the xp professional cd and run the recovery console.
Download the operating system from this link: http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/en/details.aspx?FamilyID=2fcde6ce-b5fb-4488-8c50-fe22559d164e&displaylang=en
or
if you have it, install it using the procedure below:Boot From the Windows XP CD
  • You must boot from your XP . Please make sure it is the same version of Windows that is currently installed on your computer (ex. XP Home cannot repair XP Professional). Place the CD in your CDROM and start your computer. Newer versions will work as well (ie. Windows XP Pro SP2 CD will work on an older WinXP Pro SP1 installation)

    you will be asked to press any key to boot from CD, so do just that.

    Step 3: System repair steps
  • A blue screen will appear and will begin loading XP setup from the CD.

    simply let the CD load without pressing F6.

    Once completed, you will be confronted with "Windows Setup". You will be asked to setup up Windows, or repair Windows with the recovery console. Choose the FIRST option, NOT recovery console.

Choose F8 to continue.

  • Next, Windows Setup will find existing Windows XP installations. You will be asked to repair an existing XP installation or install a fresh copy of Windows XP.

    If no installations are found, then you will not be given the option to repair. This may happen if the data or partition on your drive is too corrupted.
That should be it. Windows XP will appear to be installing itself for the first time, but it will retain all of your data and settings. Just follow the prompts

I have Mavis Beacon teaches typing cd and I am trying to install it on windows 7 but it wont install i can only read the manual that adobe lets me, my questions is how do i download the program to windows...


What version of the typing program do you have? You have a few choices, depending on what OS runs the version you have.

If the program ran under Vista or XP (version 20 lists Vista compatibility), the compatibility mode is likely to work. For this, right click on the installer. Then choose Properties and then the Compatibility tab. Turn on Run program as Compatible with the appropriate OS. Then right click again on the installer and choose Run as Administrator. Then check if the program itself is running in the compatibility mode by right clicking again and choosing Properties.

If the compatibility mode doesn't work (for older versions of the software), you can use a computer (virtual, dual-boot, or true second machine) with an older version of Windows installed. If you have Win7 Pro or Ultimate, you can create a virtual XP computer for free. Download and install Virtual PC and XP mode from Microsoft. Install them in order. Then install the XP software on the virtual computer and it will work. (Other virtual computer programs are Parallels and VMWare.) All of the other options will require a licensed version of the older Windows OS. Please note that the virtual computer can't share files directly with the main computer. You'll need to save files to external or removable media (optical media or flash drive, for example) to share them.

Your final option is to upgrade to the current version. The 25th Anniversary edition runs under Windows 7. Other editions are not listed as compatible at the Broderbund site. You can try the Microsoft Windows 7 Compatibility Center for more information on tested software. My ISP is slow to connect to the site.

I hope this helps.

I purchased Hebrew Tutor and cannot install it on my Windows7, 64-bit computer. Please help.


Unfortunately, the Hebrew Tutor from QuickVerse was written for older Windows OS versions. It supports: Windows 95, 98, ME, 2000, XP Home, XP Pro, or NT 4.0. The changes in the Windows OS over time has made the installer totally different and the program isn't signed for a 64-bit OS. http://www.quickverse.com/shopfiles/product_details.asp?ID=41011 has the support details.

There are two possible ways to work around the issue. The first is to try to install the program (and then run it) in the compatibility mode. This may work but often doesn't. Right click on the installer (from the CD's directory) and choose Properties. Then go to the Compatibility tab and chose Run this program as compatible with XP. Save and close the properties box. Then right click again on the installer and choose Run as Administrator. If it installs, repeat the compatibility process on the program itself.

The solution most likely to work is to use a computer with the compatible OS versions. This could be a physical second computer, a dual-boot machine or a virtual computer. If you have Windows 7 Pro or Ultimate, you can run the virtual computer with XP for free. Download and install Virtual PC and XP mode (in order) from Microsoft. For other setups, you will need a licensed version of the older Windows OS. Virtualization packages include Virtual PC, Parallels and VMWare. Then install the Hebrew tutor as you normally would to an XP computer. (Note: virtual computers do not share hardware with the real computer. You can only install a printer to one machine at a time. You can share files by saving them to external media (optical RW disc or flash drive for example).)

I hope this helps.

I'm having difficulty installing itunes over xp media center. it seems that both xp and itunes want to grap the cd drive. Any way out of this? Also I heard that xp media centre is cp pro with some add...


I am not quite sure what you mean by saying that the programs want to grab the cd drive. Neither program should be using the cd/dvd drive unless you are using it, neither program has sole use of it. Could you clarify if you are getting an error during the installation?

No you can't install XP Pro and use the same product key that you have with Media Center. You need to purchase XP Pro if you want to install it and use the product key that comes in the packaging.

Itunes


You cannot install the iTunes. Here is the main system spec:

Windows XP Service Pack 2 or later, or 32-bit editions of Windows Vista.

Have you thought about upgrading to Win XP or maybe even Ubuntu?

Slow computer


Pro won't make it run faster. Make sure the processor is fast enough to handle XP. If it's an older computer you've upgraded to XP, it may not have the horsepower.

Read this page from Microsoft:

http://support.microsoft.com/kb/314865

If the CPU conforms, the best thing to do is add RAM. I recommend a minimum of 1 GB for XP machines.

Make sure the hard drive is not nearly full, as that will limit the paging file that Windows uses. If your drive is near capacity (+90% full) it will slow down any computer, regardless of how much memory you have, or what speed the CPU is.
