Converting Corel files on a new Vista PC

I have a new computer running Windows Vista. My older spreadsheets are Corel Quatra, and I have transferred them to my new computer, but can't convert them to Excel. The "automatic" web search for the Corel program comes up "file type unknown". What to do? Do I have to boot up my old PC, print them out, and input manually? I hope not!

    Have you tried exporting the files on the old system as a .csv file? If you can do that, you can import it into Excel and then save it in Excel format. If you try this method, be sure to include all of the headings.

    Good luck, and please let me know how this works out for you. In the meantime, I'll do a little more looking for converters for you.

My Art Explosion Greeting Card Deluxe Factory 2 software will not work on my Toshiba Satellite A200 laptop. I am using Windows Vista. Please can you advise?


Unfortunately the Windows OS has changed significantly since that software was released. Nova Developement now has the Greeting Card Factory Deluxe version 8 for XP/Vista/7.

If you have the 64-bit Vista, you may not be able to get the old software to work and need the upgrade or a virtual computer with an older Windows OS (see below). To check your OS version, click Start > Control Panel > System and Security > System .

You can try running the program in the compatibility mode - this will work best with software for XP not Win95-NT. Right click on the installer and select Properties. Go to the Compatibility tab and choose Run this program as compatible with (an older version of Windows). Click on the check box and use the drop-down menu to select the older OS. Save the change by clicking apply then close the window. Right click again on the installer and choose Run as Administrator.

If the program installs, do the same compatibility steps for the program's exe file itself. (You don't need to run as administrator though.)

Alternatively, you can run a dual boot or virtual computer with an older Windows OS. (Programs like Virtual PC, Parallels and VMWare let you run a virtual computer inside the Vista system with a computer that can handle virtualization.) Unfortunately, you usually need a licensed version of Windows to do this. (Win7 Pro and Ultimate let you do this free with Virtual PC and XP mode.) Then install the software normally in the virtual computer or when booted into the older version of Windows. File transfer can be tricky with the virtual computer - you need to save files to external media (flash drive or optical disc). Printers can't be installed on both the real and virtual computer at the same time.

I hope this helps.

I have a belkin easy transfer cable. How do i transfer photo's


On the old computer, run Vista's "Files and Settings Transfer Wizard" to write one large file onto the old computer. The "export" file will contain your pictures.

Copy, via the transfer-cable, that one file to the new computer.

Run the "import" function of the Windows 7 Files and Settings Transfer Wizard to read the copied file.

I have windows vista just had a new hard drive installed the data off the old drive has been put onto an hdd caddy how do I load it back onto the new hard drive of my computer, the caddy is a plug in via a...


When you insert the usb cable from the caddy into a USB port on your notebook, Vista will automatically recognize it and open a dialog box. Choose to view files and folders.

Open another Window using Explorer and resize it so you can see the contents of your C: drive.

Then simply drag your files and folders from the caddy to the C: drive where you want them.

Remember that transferring program files will NOT help you as many of the files needed to run a program are located in other folders such as yours Windows directory. You will need to reinstall any software you wish to use.

This method is strictly for data transfer, as an example all your pictures, documents, spreadsheets, etc.

I am using pc to pc file transfer for dummies I know how to hook it to both computers but I have no idea how to drag files I have windows vista


Windows Easy Transfer is installed with Vista and can be found under Accessories - System Tools or by searching for "easy" (with out quotes).

You can transfer files and settings using a network share, or transfer files and settings using removable media such as CD/DVD, or an external hard drive.
Windows Easy Transfer does not migrate installed applications (see Windows Easy Companion below)
Using Windows Easy Transfer, you can migrate most files and program settings. Below is a table describing the types of data and settings that can be moved.

Data Type Specifics Files and Folders Any files found in My Documents, My Pictures, and Shared Documents folder will be selected to be moved automatically. You can also add other documents that are in other locations. E-mail messages and Settings E-mail messages, contacts, account settings, and address books from Outlook Express, Outlook, Windows Mail, and other programs. Program Settings Programs that are compatible with Vista will have their settings transferred to the new Computer. In order for this to work the program must already be installed on the Computer running Vista. User Settings Desktop settings, color settings, screen savers, fonts, Windows options, printers, etc. Internet Settings Favorites, cookies, and Internet Explorer settings. Pictures, Video, and Music Music files, playlists, and album. Pictures (gif, jpg, bmp files) and personal videos.

Copy files from old computer and transfer to new computer


Although Vista comes with an Easy File Transfer Wizard it is not compatible with Windows 98.

You will need a CD burning program such as Nero Burning Suite or Creative CD Writer or here is a link to a FREE one.

Home vista to open corel files


If you try to open the file with Microsoft Word, it should automatically convert it. To open it with Microsoft Word, hit "File" > "Open". Change the "Files of Type:" drop down box to "All (*.*)". Navigate to the folder in which the file is located, and it should appear in the dialog box. Double click the file, and Microsoft Word should convert the file for you. You can then save the file in a different format if you prefer.
