If the compatibility troubleshooter is failing, it most likely means that that program is not compatible with Windows 7.

You can try to set the compatibility settings manually and try that.
Right click on the program and go to to properties.
In the Properties window, select the compatibility tab.
Check the box next to Run this program in compatibility mode for:
In the drop down box select the Operating System (previous version of windows) that it it was last known to work on.
(Most likely Windows XP service pack 3)
Click APPLY
Good luck!

SOURCE: igrs anycom incompatibility after upgrading my lenovo laptop to vista

Hi jmsv,

I'm not entirely sure what kind of device your 'igrs' is, after visiting the anycom website and searching their products, support page, and looking for any part with that model number/characters.

Here is the link to their support drivers for Windows Vista:
Anycom Support Page

If you could help by specifying what type of device you are having problems using, an error code, and also mention if you have visited the link I posted and had any luck locating the device driver for your part it would be helpful in assisting you.

Bottom line is that your incompatible part may or may not have a Vista Driver that would make it compatible. But if it does exist, it would only be available from the manufacturer. So I believe the Link I posted is your best bet to find your missing Driver.

Hope that helps.

SOURCE: SUMP error in Windows Vista

Hi,


Try to increase the size of Event Logs files.

Open up Event Viewer by typing in eventvwr into the Start \ Run box, or you can find it under Administrative tools section of Control Panel.
You’ll notice over on the right-hand side of the window that the current size of my Application and System Event Logs are 512 KB…

Now you can right-click on one of the Event Logs in the list, and choose Properties from the menu.

In this dialog you can do a number of things… you could clear the log, increase the size, or just set the system to overwrite events as needed

chose to increase the maximum size of the event log, and then also to overwrite events as needed

For those of you using Windows Vista, you’ll notice that the default settings in Vista are to overwrite as needed, and the maximum size is way bigger. Guess my setting choices make sense then…

SOURCE: I'm trying to upgrade from 64-bit Vista to 64 bit

Regarding the concern, please make sure that you are trying to install 64 bit of Windows 7 and not 32 bit of Windows 7.

It is not possible to install 64 bit Windows 7 on a 32 bit Windows Vista and same goes for 32 bit Windows 7 on 64 bit Vista.

Let me know if you need any further help.

The application will not open in windows 10. Uninstalled it, removed folders& regkey entries.Installed clean version. Installation went fine. However the application it self will not open.


According to the software release notices, it wasn't until version 7.0d that they made it Windows 7 compatible. You aren't saying what OS you are migrating from, but it may be that you are running too old a version of the program. You could try one of two other options.
  1. Try running the program as an administrator. Right click on the program icon and select "run as administrator".
  2. Try running in compatibility mode for the OS you were using it with previously, right click on the program icon and select the "properties item". Then click on the compatibility tab and use the pulldown to select the OS to simulate the program for.
If they both fail to work, you may have to upgrade to a newer version. Many older applications stopped playing nice starting with Windows 8. Many of them actually worked if you loaded VISTA drivers and/or compatibility, but not all. Most Windows 7 and later software has no issues with Win10.

Running windows vista service pack 2 but quicken 2014 won't open


One solution would be to run it pretending your Vista is XP. I have seen it done but as I have no Vista machine, I cannot tell you the steps. Search for running Vista in XP mode - once you have managed that, try installing the software.
The second solution would be to open a virtual machine on Vista and running that as an XP machine. Again, I have seen it done.

Try the links I have added below.

The problem I had was with Quickbooks, not Quicken, but the principle is the same and worth a try. Good luck.

The CD -rom not compatible with windows 8. it works on windows 95


Between Win95 and Windows 8 there are several other versions Win 98, Win 2000, Win XP, Vista, and Windows 7. Try to run the CD in compatibility mode. If it does not work you will have to forgo the use of that software or run it on an old machine, or upgrade to a version compatible with Windows 8 if one such upgrade exists.

Will not function with Windows 7, what is wrong?


Not all programs that worked in Windows XP will run in Windows Vista or Windows 7.
I suggest you try compatibility mode to see if it helps.

If the program is not compatible, then you may try to install and run the program in compatibility mode.

Use the following steps:

1) Right click on the Program

2) Click on Properties

3) Click on Compatibility tab

4) Select Run this program in compatibility mode and select Windows Vista or whatever operating system the program was running successfully.



Refer to the link here: Make older programs run in this version of Windows

http://windows.microsoft.com/en-us/windows7/Make-older-programs-run-in-this-version-of-Windows


If the compatibility is not successful, then try and runthe Program Compatibility troubleshooter:


1. Open the Program Compatibility troubleshooter by clicking theStart button.

Then click Control Panel. In the search box, type troubleshooter, and then clickTroubleshooting. Under Programs, clickRun programs made for previous versions of Windows.

2. Follow the instructions in the troubleshooter.

If you cannot install a program, insert the installation disc for the program and, using the troubleshooter, browse to the program's setup file, usually called Setup.exe, Install.exe, or something similar. The troubleshooter is not designed to work on programs that have an .msi file name extension.


If you run Windows 7 Professional or Ultimate version, install Windows Virtual PC and Windows XP mode (http://www.microsoft.com/windows/virtual-pc/default.aspx) and execute your software in Windows XP.


If you run Windows 7 Home Premium, try VirtualBox (www.virtualbox.org) or VMware Player (www.vmware.com) and install a separate copy of Windows XP (either Home Edition or Professional) for that purpose.You can find virtualization software free of charge that will run on Windows 7 Home Premium.
Hope this helps.

Is Quicken99 compatible with Windows 7 and/or XP?


The best way to install older versions of Quicken on Vista or Windows 7 is to run the setup program through the Windows Compatibility feature:

In Control Panel search for 'compatibility' that will bring up an item 'Run program made for previous versions of Windows'.

Select this and step through the process which will eventually show a list of all programs loaded on the system.

Select the first option 'Not listed'. This will then prompt you for a location of the program.
Click 'Browse' and select the location of the Quicken install program (either CD or disk).

Once found, select the Quicken install program and continue. This will the suggest that the installer run in XP mode. Click 'Next' to run the installer.

I installed Windows 7 on a laptop (HP DV2000) now the it give problems to come on, I tried over and over finaly i got Windows Vista 32bit on it, but it still giving the same problem, what can i do or how...


Windows 7 is designed for latest hardware and the Laptop you are using is quite an old. We will face compatibility issues.

I suggest you to run a Compatibility Advisor to know which Windows 7 version is compatible for your Notebook.

Install the suggested version using an upgrade Disk. If you use retail version, you will face the driver compatibility issues.

All windows 7 driver will not available. But, you can use Vista driver for Windows 7 if it is installed using an upgrade disk

Not compatible or not working well with windows 7?
(making a program work with windows 7)

Maybe, It doesn't work because the driver/application you installed is for other versions of operating system. I am also using windows 7 like you so don't you worry, You can still use your old installer/driver from other versions of operating systems. Just remember that before installing any program in a windows 7 Operating System Computer, Use "troubleshoot compatibility". Right Click the Icon of your program installer/application first, then choose "troubleshoot compatibility". This will allow you to choose on what type operating system your program will run. Just reply back if it still doesn't work.:D rate and vote for me:)) julyallan01_52.jpg
