Can cyber chess download to windows 10?


Hi , do you mean that the subject program will not install using Windows 10 operating system ?
If so , try running the app's setup program located on the install disk media in compatibility mode for an earlier Windows version such as XP sp3
Compatibility mode enables a late version native Windows to run a program as per a user designated earlier version Windows and so extend support for obsolete apps that may not run using default settings

Navigate to the install disk's file directory using Windows Explorer (not the browser) , click on the folder to open and scroll down to the setup ( application) file . Right click to open the context menu and select properties > compatibility : check : run this program in compatibility mode and select from drop down list XP sp3 (my guess) or latest published supported Windows version for the subject app.
Check under privilege level : run this program as an administrator
click apply > ok then close and double click app's setup file to launch installation
Hopefully will now install and app will subsequently launch and process correctly.

I would like to run learn to speak english (setup file version 2.0.71.0) under Windows XP. How can I do that. Previously it was run under windows 95. TAhn you in advance


Hi, welcome to FixYa.

Windows XP provides such compatibility mode to run old program in Windows XP. Believe me, I've tried this and it works, in my case I installed my old game The Lost Mind of Dr Brain which developed for Windows 3.11 or Windows 95.

To do it, you just need to locate executable file of your program. Then right click on it, choose Properties. Then go to Compatibility tab, checked "Run this program in compatibility mode for:", then choose Windows 95. You may also need to thick the "Run in 256 color" and "Disable visual themes" check box.

I hope this can help you out. Thanks for visiting FixYa.

I put the disc in and click try again it still say please insert disk. My system is Windows XP SP3.


The current link for the fix is available from Focus Multimedia Limited. www.focusmm.co.uk/public/updates/lego/chess/chessfix.exe. Download this patch and install it. You need to be logged in as administator to install it. From then on you don't need the disk, however, I found that the introductory animation is missing, it goes straight to the page where you insert the name of the player. All animations work in the main game, but with the storybook game, I seem to remember it had animations when you went from one location to another when winning games, these also are missing. Mine played perfectly in my old xp computer, new xp computer wouldn't recognize the disk. Now fixed with the patch with the above limitations. Anyway, all other links for the fix were dead, this one works. Contact Multimedia by email if you have any problems, that is what I did. Their email address...welcome@focusmm.co.uk. Good luck to all LEGO CHESS fans.

How to upgrade win 95 to winxp without removing files installed


A computer running Windows 95 WILL NOT RUN Windows XP in most cases. Post all of your hardware details and we can explore that further.

Most programs that run on Windows 95 WILL NOT RUN under Windows XP easily. There are some compatibility things you can try for each one, but most simply will crash, and some will seem to work for a while then crash at inopportune moments.

What you should do is buy an newer computer with Windows XP, remove your current hard drive, and put your current hard drive as a second drive in the new computer. You will have access to your documents, but your programs will not run.

Software runs until I power down at next power up software dies.


Hello,
I would suggest purchasing the version of the Mavis Beacon Teaches Typing v 1.5. It's compatible with Windows XP. I've also looked at the software description and you are able to select the age group of the typing test.
However, if some reason you have to continue with the same version. What error message do you recieve?
Thank You, Raphael

I have a hard drive with windows 95 and i am trying to install windows xp professional addition but it comes back saying you can't intall this version of windows on this system


Windows 95 uses the FAT 32 system and uses a boot-up partition that will not recognize a windows xp default system install that uses the NTFS system. You can do it the other way around though, if XP is installed first, or another drive you have with XP on it is the first drive set to boot in your BIOS XP will recognize WIN 95 on its FAT 32 partition and either let you boot from that partition when you first start up your computer or when in XP right clicking a WIN 95 application and setting its properties to run as a Win 95 environment. Solution I would use if I were you would be to download Microsoft's free Virtual PC application from their website and run a full version of WIN 95 in its own virtual environment. Win 95 will run about 10 times faster than it ever would on its own partion if run under XP.
