    the Fn + F8 did not work. I've tried this in osx 10.4 and oxs 10.5 latest and greatest updates Im on the G5 Tower and the only thing I changed from the original is the key board. It use to be the older white key board and now I have the new aluminum key board. Do you think this may be the issue? Im at a loss because the only thing that is not working is the F8 key when I try of accept the stupid lic agreement during the install. Its happens in the install of Win 2000 and Win Xp Pro


    Thanks Again for assistance.

You may have changed the mode in which the finction keys are used. Try Fn + F8, that will probably get you going. Regards -- Joe

I was able to get the F8 to work to accept the terms and conditions by holding down the Ctrl and hitting F8. I'm using a desktop PC and installing Windows XP on the Virtual PC 2007.

Upgrade drivers to windows 7


If the game didn't work for Windows 7, you can use a virtual computer and install in it Windows XP, and then enjoy the game.

To create virtual computer, you can use softwares like VMWare Workstation. Then you need to use a Windows XP CD or image (download it) to install it to the virtual computer. Now go enjoy the game.

I have notebook acer aspire 5741g and window7, ATI Mobility Radeon and I have no problem. Now I want to work Windows XP. I look for compatible drivers.


I would suggest that you download and install the FREE XP mode for Windows 7. That way you can easily move back and forth between Windows 7 applications and XP applications.

You can also install the FREE XP virtual machine on your Windows 7 and have an XP computer on your Windows 7 computer. Works great and much better than Dual Booting. I

If Windows 7 is working with no problems on your Windows 7 installation your ATI Mobility Radeon will function fine under either XP Mode or a Microsoft XP virtual machine.

Give it a try. It is very easy to install and use.

I have replaced my windows xp with windows 7 and my tigerwoods 06 won't play. and it did with windowds xp.


Download the FREE Windows 7 XP Mode, install it, then reinstall your software in XP Mode following the XP Mode Application Instructions. Another alternative is to use the FREE XP mode virtual machine under Windows 7. You can then load software that is compatible with XP But not Windows 7 in the XP virtual machine.

Works excellently

Hi , i cant install canon pc1230d in windows 7 computer. Thanks


There is no driver for your unit under Windows 7
Workaround :
If you are under Win 7 Ultimate or Pro or Enterprise , you can download and install a free virtual version of Win XP from : http://www.microsoft.com/windows/virtual-pc/download.aspx
This is the ultimate solution to ANY compatibility problem. You just use XP mode to do operate your device then go back to Win 7 in one clic where your modern processing software is.
Under other versions of Windows 7 , you need to have the XP install disc to install a virtual version with a third party software such as WmWare Player from

I want install oracle 8i in windows 7


You can't install that Oracle version directly on a Windows 7 machine, but you should be able to install it on XP Mode.
Oracle 8.1 is not supported on Windows 7. It is never intended to be used on Windows 7. You have to look at virtualisation (Virtual Box, Virtual Pc, WMware), to get Oracle 8i installed on Win XP, 2000, 98.

My favourite programme - Print Artist 4 which has worked with all my computers up to and including XP will not work with Windows 7 - what can I do?


It means that this application is not compatible with Vista or Windows 7. If you have Windows 7 Pro or Ultimate, all you have to do is run the app in XP mode, which is really running an XP virtual machine inside of Windows 7. Just look in Windows help for instructions on how to do it. If you have Home Premium or less, they do not have XP mode. Instead you can download Virtual PC 2007 SP1 from the Microsoft web site for free, install it, then create a virtual machine that uses XP. You will have to have a licensed copy of XP to install on the virtual machine. Then install PrintArtist on the virtual machine and you are ready to go. You can use the virtual machine and Windows 7 on the host system simultaneously and can even exchange data between the two.
