Yes, Insert the Dell XP disc, and when your computer first stars, in the right hand corner there should be setup and boot devices. Choose boot devices and run off the disc. After that, there will be an option to Format All your drives, (even some you might not know about :P). From there you can install XP onto your laptop.

I am currently running windows Vista. Is there any updates I need to install?


no probably you r being blocked from running this program . you can only solve this if you use windows xp or windows 7. so mget a copy of windows xp . install it beside vista if you want to keep vista or replace xp with vista and then ionstall the program in it. it will surely take installation.

I would like to buy aHP Pavilion Slimline s5117c Desktop PC but i would like to downgrade to xp profesional is that possible?


It comes with Vista I think but of course you can install XP iff you have the disk. It would also be likely that HP will load XP for you if you request it as it is cheaper than Vista or windows. I have provided the link for the hp below but why not contact HP and ask if they will toss in a copy of xp instead of the upgrade to Windows 7. (by the way Windoes 7 is really a great system. I have installed it on my desktop and Laptop)

I have a new computer with Windows Vista. I have


No it looks like they stopped the support at the old one, this means they did'nt make any drivers for the old one to function on vista.
Vista uses a very diferent driver model than xp does.
The drivers for xp won't work in any way on vista.

Will Custom LandDesigner 3D work OK using Microsoft Vista ? I see it mentions Windows 95, 98 and 2000. How about XP? Thank you.


If it will work on 2000 then it will work in XP, But with Vista it might not, after installing it on Vista! Right click on the Icon you use to start the program, go to Advance and change the option to run as XP SP2 option and give that a go

Error when installing mastercook 6 on my vista laptop


hi there.
mastercook 6 runs on older windows versions
like win95, win98 and win Millenium Edition
only, newer are not supported.sorry

MasterCook deluxe 9.0 supports win2000, XP and VISTA, but this would mean spending another 19.99 on amazon.

you could try to install the 6.0 version on an older machine that still has win98 on it or think about setting up a multi-boot system (u need some computer expertise)so you can install multiple operation systems on your laptop, but this takes a lot of effort and all the drivers for your computer for win98, so spend of whatever you have more of, time or money...

good luck!
