Question about Mindscape Mavis Beacon Typing for Kids (llmavtykij) for PC

1 Answer

Software runs until I power down at next power up software dies.

The program is Mavis Beacon Teaches Typing for Kids, a Win 95 progam. I'm running Win XP. After restarting the computer if I click on the clock in the program ( to run a timed touch typing drill) I get the error that the program has an error and needs to close. If I reinstall the program it will run until I shut down the machine and then give me the error after I start it again. I have XP set to run the program in Windows 95 compatibility.

    The error is a standard XP error box. It says: "Mavis Beacon For Kids Program File has encountered a problem and needs to close. We are sorry for the inconvenience." It goes on to say: you may lose any info, "Please tell Microsoft about this problem" and that an error report has been created.



    Mavis has a log file which I guess was created on installation. It has 17 lines in it and 16 of those lines say copying different files.

    One file says Deleting Mavkid.RGS. This occurs right after Mavkid.RGS was copied. Do you think that's a problem?

Hello,
I would suggest purchasing the version of the Mavis Beacon Teaches Typing v 1.5. It's compatible with Windows XP. I've also looked at the software description and you are able to select the age group of the typing test.
However, if some reason you have to continue with the same version. What error message do you recieve?
Thank You, Raphael

Is Mavis Beacon a good program for teaching typing to kids?


I learned to type on Mavis Beacon, but there are better programs out there these days that will have fun games and good graphics for getting kids engaged. I think that Mavis Beacon may be a little more sophisticated and could come off boring for younger kids.

Program won't run in Windows 7


That program is very old; they're on version 20 or something like that, and may not be able to run on Win7 at all. (You really should just get an updated version. (v.15 is only $5-6))
The only chance of getting that app working under Win 7 would be to run the program with "compatibility mode" set to Windows XP... Or maybe even Windows 98 or 95 for something that old.

To change compatibility settings manually for a program, right-click the icon for the program, click Properties, and then click the Compatibility tab.

Good luck!

I have Mavis Beacon teaches typing 8 and can't install in on my laptop which uses xp? Are there no patches or anything??


Try right clicking on the executable file that starts it, an go to the compatability mode tab. Set it to Windows 98. Not guaranteed to work, but a small chance. The program was made for Win 95, 98 ans Win ME. Get a newer version, if it doesn't work. I suggest amazon.com. Depending on version, it should cost under $20. Just make sure is compatible with Win XP.

How do you remove mavis beacon teaches typing 15. I cannot uninstall it


Dear,
Go to your start up menu. Click Control Panel. Click Programs. Click Uninstall a program. Scroll down to Mavis Beacon Typing. Select Uninstall. Your Windows system may ask you" do you want to continue" click yes. Remove any unwanted or outdated programs this way. Don't bog down your system with programs you don't use. They take up valuable space. Be blesed..
