Am trying to install vista on my windows xp-sp2 but it gives "spinstall is not a valid win32 application......how to install then???


Are you doing a Dual-Boot? With a Separate Partition on the Primary HDD? I'm a bit confused? Are you doing a install on the Primary HDD and installing over the Win XP? Did you format the HDD? Or on a second HDD?

Tip

Repairing Windows Vista using bootrec.exe


Bootrec.exe tool can be used in the Windows Recovery Environment (Windows RE) to troubleshoot and repair the following items in Windows Vista:
  • A master boot record (MBR)
  • A boot sector
  • A Boot Configuration Data (BCD) store
To run the Bootrec.exe tool, you must start Windows RE. To do this, follow these steps:
  1. Put the Windows Vista installation disc in the disc drive, and then start the computer.
  2. Press a key when you are prompted.
  3. Select a language, a time, a currency, a keyboard or an input method, and then click Next.
  4. Click Repair your computer.
  5. Click the operating system that you want to repair, and then click Next.
  6. In the System Recovery Options dialog box, click Command Prompt.
  7. Type Bootrec.exe, and then press ENTER.
Bootrec.exe options

The Bootrec.exe tool supports the following options. Use the option that is appropriate for your situation.

/FixMbr Use this option when you must resolve MBR corruption issues, or when you have to remove non-standard code from the MBR.

/FixBoot Use this option if one of the following conditions is true:
  • The boot sector has been replaced with a non-standard Windows Vista boot sector.
  • The boot sector is damaged.
  • An earlier Windows operating system has been installed after Windows Vista was installed. In this scenario, the computer starts by using Windows NT Loader (NTLDR) instead of Windows Boot Manager (Bootmgr.exe).
/ScanOs Use this option when there are Windows Vista installations that the Boot Manager menu does not list.

/RebuildBcd Use this option when you must completely rebuild the BCD.

Note: It will work with all windows Vista versions

Hi presently my computer is running of XP SP2 i have downloaded windows 7 rc 1 fron msdn. when i happened to run setup it says that spinstall.exe is not valid windows 32 application. please suggest what...


You cannot upgrade directly from Windows Xp to Windows 7 you will have to use a different method which you can find out more about from the Windows 7 cd it comes with the utility to see if your system will support it. Do not take a short cut find out everything you need to know before trying to change operating systems. Hardware compatability etc.

I have installed an HP Officejet 4355 in Windows Vista and now it does not scan. What could happen?


Make sure you have installed the correct HP Officejet 4355 driver for VISTA. If you are not sure, you can reinstall uninstall the driver and install the Vista version from the link below:

For Windows Vista:
ftp://ftp.hp.com/pub/softlib/software10/COL18486/mp-47767-2/AIO_CDB_Full_Non-Network_enu_NB.exe

For Windows Vista 64bit:
ftp://ftp.hp.com/pub/softlib/software10/COL18486/mp-47767-2/AIO_CDB_Full_Non-Network_enu_NB.exe

Hope this helps you. Goodluck!

You can't install Vista from XP, you have to boot using the CD and install through that.

Epson Stylus Photo R200 and R320 Status monitor in Vista


I was able to install the original XP status monitor from the CD, onto Windows Vista Home Premium.

On the install cd, you need to open the 'STM3' folder under whatever language you are installing, 'English' in my case. There are several .exe files in that folder:

E_S1LAC2.EXE
E_SCHK02.EXE
E_SIINS2.EXE
E_SPSU02.EXE
STMSETUP.EXE
For each of these, right click on the file, and choose 'Properties'. Under the 'Compaitbility' tab, choose 'Run this program in compatibility mode for:' - Windows XP (Service Pack 2).

Then run the 'STMSETUP.EXE' file, and it should install properly, and work. Although I cannot guarantee that it will work on your system, or that it will not have any negative effects on your computer.

So far, I have not had any trouble with it.
