No you will need to reinstall windows 7 there are different entities
Windows 8 is much better than windows 7 it just takes a little getting used to it.
It starts up much faster.
Accessing its programs takes just a few clicks.

SOURCE: my gateway essential 400 cant run newer programs

ronronjr79, the Gateway Essential 400C?

Processor: Intel Celeron 400. (400MHz), or Intel Pentium II at 400MHz

Ram Memory: SDR Sdram at 133MHz, (PC133)
Sold with 32MB's. Upgradable to 128MB (?)

Graphics Chip: ATI Rage 128 with 8MB's of graphics ram memory.
(MB stands for MegaByte)

With all due respect, it would be pointless to try to upgrade this computer.

You would need;

1) New motherboard.
(A motherboard/mainboard is the 'Building Block' of a computer)

Needs to be able to handle at least, a 2.4GHz Intel Pentium 4 processor.

2) New Processor. (The 'Brain' of a computer)
Stated above.

3) New more advanced Ram Memory
(DDR Sdram, at least at 400MHz, (PC3200), and at least 1GB of it.

4) A decent graphics card, or decent Integrated Graphics on the motherboard.

5) A better Power Supply to handle the above hardware components. (The 'Heart' of a computer.

6) Cooling fans to cool the above hardware components.

Essentially a new computer.

Not being a smart aleck, nor wishing to incur your wrath.
Just stating facts.

You may be able to pick up a decent older computer, with a Pentium 4 processor, for around $100 to $150 USD.

SOURCE: Why does silverlight program lock up computer?

This may not be your problem, but I have a client who has a webcam attached to his PC in New York, and when he inadvertently accepted the Microsoft Silverlight download as a part of Microsoft Windows Updates, his camera no longer worked and his computer froze-up. Removing Silverlight solved the problem, so there was some sort of driver conflict with the webcam. Never found a solution thru either Microsoft or the camera manufacturer's website.

Is there a download or disc I can get to use one of these computers to work with "your product"?

Support for Windows XP ceased a couple of years ago. Only Windows 7, 8 and 10 are supported.

It is very unlikely that a computer running XP will run Windows 10. It may run 7, albeit slowly.

You refer to 'your product'? We are Fixya, not Microsoft or any other software vendor.

What is a device id

Beautiful!!! Good News!!! For All MICROGRAFX DRAW 5 guys.
I was tired looking for patches to run mi MICROGRAFX DRAW 5 in 64bit computer, with no success. I gave up.
But I installed Windows 8 recently in my computer, and I found out that Windows 8 let me install my very loved program MICROGRAFX DRAW 5.
And it is running as it should be. really nice. I am really happy for it. I kicked windows 7 out.
As soon as Windows 8 received the installation command; it told me that a 16bit program needs a compatibility. Then it asked me if I want to have that.
I clicked YES; and Windows 8 did all the work. The program got installed seamless in seconds; with all the features.
Sincerely; Francisco.

We work with Davi-Cash versie 2000 under Windows XP Shortly we will work with new computers under Windows 7. Will Davi-Cash versie 2000 still work?

Davi-Cash versie 2000 is not compatible with Windows 7. You can howeveruse the built-in virtualisation technology of Windows 7 to run a virtual instance of Windows XP within Win7, and run Davi-Cash versie 2000 under that.

I bought the program Magix Movie Edit 12 . I just changed to a computer with windows 7. How can I download and run Magix. When I tried it told me to change windows! Thank you

Glad to HELP YOU!

This Magix Movie Edit series were made to run on Windows 7 systems too. So probably your license key was released for your previous computer ONLY. On the list of compatible MAGIX products (for Windows 7) are mentioned just:
  • Movies on DVD 8
  • Movie Edit Pro 16 / 17
  • Movie Edit Pro 16 / 17 Plus
  • Rescue Your Videotapes! 3
  • Video easy HD
  • Video Sound Cleaning Lab
So your MAGIX Movie Edit 12 is not included.
Anyway the same manufacturer says that:
"If you have difficulties with the installation of our products or you have trouble with the system environment email us here:".
... I'd suggest you to do so.
