To use compatibility mode the .exe has to be on the computer. If the software won't install from a dvd or cd you will have to iso it using magiciso or ultraiso or poweriso then once it is on your hard-drive find it using Windows Explorer (start/all programs/accessories/Windows Explorer) and use winrar to extract it to user data into a folder. find the .exe for the installer and right click it and choose properties then compatibility tab then choose run as.... keep trying a different method until it installs.

Windows 7 Drivers for Printers and other accessories


As it is known to everyone that Win 7 is the latest Operating System from Microsoft and that lacks one of the best thing which Windows XP was having embedded inside it. Yes the in-built drivers which were automatically detected and installed without any rush for chasing drivers. Till date there are many computer peripherals like (printers, scanners, webcams, tablets, sound cards, NIC or Ethernet or LAN card, laptop, notepad GPS devises, Routers, Switches, Modems, Mobiles and many more) for which MS has not yet released the drivers or the publisher has not yet released drivers for Win 7. Hence,ultimately the user is suffering as they cannot use the peripherals which they were able to use with XP but after installing Win7 those devices don't work anymore because of the lack of drivers inside Win7 Operating

System.

The good news

Win 7 has a very good feature inbuilt on this problem that is compatibility driver installation mode. One can try and install the existing Win XP driver in Win7 with compatible mode. If an XP driver is installed in Win7 with compatibility mode then that particular peripheral gives out the efficiency upto 90% .



In order to install the driver first connect the device to pc and then select have disc in the wizard which pop-ups and then follow the wizard and look out for the word compatibility mode. Just select compatibility mode and your device isready to be used in Win 7. Otherwise you can also install the driver through control panel add new hardware and simply select have disc instead of search automatic and don't forget to select compatible mode while following the wizards instructions.

I installed panzers phase 1 on win7. all installation was trouble free but when i try and start the game i'm asked to reboot to finish installation but when i reboot and then try to launch the game...


Have you tried to uninstall and reinstall the program?
is your windows 7 a 64bit or 32bit?
if 64bit, maybe the program is not compatible with win7 64bit.
try this one.
  1. right click the shortcut link of panzer.
  2. on the menu choose Properties.
  3. then click the Compatibility Tab.
  4. On the Compatibility Mode >>>> Check the Box that Says " Run this program in compatibility mode for: "
  5. Choose the compatibility you want in the drop download list ( I Suggest you choose Windows XP SP2 )
  6. then click apply then Ok.
  7. Run the game.
Hope it helps.

Making printshop 21 run properly on win 7


You can either get Broderbund Print Shop Deluxe 2.0 which is Win7 compatible or use a virtual/dual boot computer with WinXP. (The Vista compatible version was Print Shop 23; so you are dealing with some significant changes in the OS. Thus the compatibility mode probably won't work. You can try right clicking on the installer and choose Properties and the Compatibility Tab. Check Run as Compatible with XP then right click on the installer again and choose Run as Administrator. Then do the Compatiblity mode again with the actual program.)

With Win7 Pro and Ultimate, you have an option to download and run XP mode which takes two programs that you download from Microsoft and install. This lets you run a virtual XP computer inside the Win7 computer for free. All other virtual computer programs or dual boot systems require a licensed version of XP.

I hope this helps.

How can i run platinum 16 on windows 7. it says there is compatability issues cannot find any driver updates


The recommended solution is to upgrade for version 18.

I'd guess you already tried running the installer by choosing Run this program in compatibility mode (by right clicking and choosing properties) and then right clicking again and Run as administrator.

Your next option is to run a virtual PC within your Win7 computer (or a dual boot system) with a compatible OS running on the "other" machine. With Win7 Pro and Ultimate, there is an option to download two programs and install them for a free WinXP virtual computer (XP mode). For the other primary OS's you'll need to have a valid license of the compatible OS to install in program that runs the virtualization or the second boot disc. Then install the Printmaster in the "machine" with the correct OS. You may find you need to save the files to external media to transfer them. (The virtual computer won't let you have one printer installed on both the virtual system and the real computer.)

I hope this helps.

I have an American Greetingts CreataCard program I bought several years ago. Just tried to download it on my Windows 7 computer and it said it was not compatible. When I had it on my old computer it was...


There may be a workaround or two. First, Win7 wants a different installer. Try running the installer in a Compatability mode (right click on the exe, choose properties, click on the Compatability tab and put a check in the box for run this program in the compatability mode, use the drop down to choose the latest OS that you know will run the program, then right click again on the program and choose run as administrator). If your new computer uses 64-bit Win7, this is even less likely to work. Microsoft needs signed files in 64-bit. Do the same compatability with the program if it installs.

If that doesn't work, try installing a virtual computer with an OS that runs the program in your Win7 machine (The free XP mode is available in Win7 Pro and Ultimate. It takes two downloads from Microsoft to install the computer and then install the program as if the XP mode was the only computer.)

Otherwise, upgrade the program. (The Microsoft compatability center gives information pending on the program.)

I hope this helps.

My new computer is window 7 which is not compatible with the instalation disk how I can install for windows 7


It's not proven compatible with Win7. However, there is a Vista driver. Try installing this (possibly with the Compatibility Mode - right click on the install file and select properties and the Compatibility tab).
http://onlinesupport.fujixerox.com/setupDriverForm.do?ctry_code=NZ&lang_code=en&d_lang=en&pid=DP203A

This driver is dated 2008 and thus well before Win7. If you have Win7 Pro or Ultimate, the XP mode might work. This involves downloading and installing 2 programs to create a virtual computer. Then install the printer on the XP "machine" as if that is the only computer. To transfer files from one computer to other, you may need to save files to external media.

I hope this helps.
