Question about Symantec pcANYWHERE 11.5 Host for PC

PcAnywhere 12.0 System Builder Edition

My Dell laptop runs Windows Vista, when I load the Symantec CD it gives me a message that there are compatability issues with "this version of Windows". MS webite has no solutions, might you?
Thanks, Marc

(ultimately my goal is to have software that will allow me to "dial in" to my companies system and perform work. Any product solutions?)

Re: pcAnywhere 12.0 System Builder Edition


PcAnywhere 12.0 is not compatible with Windows Vista. PcAnywhere 12.1 is. You can find it here:

Whether or not you are entitled to a complimentary update is unclear, although generally speaking users are normally entitled to updates as long as the version remains the same. (So in this case, because the new version is 12.1, you are likely entitled to the update, whereas if the new version was 13.0 you would be more likely out of luck.)

I would recommend using the "Live Chat with online sales" option at the URL I provided to clarify your licensing questions.

I have a NEC VY16F/RF-R notebook. I want to install windows xp in my laptop but can't do it. Please give me a instruction to install xp in my laptop.

One can no longer purchase a legal copy of Windows XP from any computer-store -- XP can only be purchased as part of buying a complete computer system from an authorized "system-builder", i.e., any small owner/operator computer-store.

Once you have purchased the XP CD-ROM, insert it into the CD-ROM drive in the NEC computer. The CD should "auto-start" and offer to install Windows XP. If not, then reboot the NEC, and choose to boot from the CD-ROM device, rather than your 'C:' drive.

It gives messsage for dll missing.

From what i have read, this is malware, a trojan.
You need to get rid of it.
Run a program like Malwarebytes in safe mode (F8 on boot, choose safe mode with networking) also run with system restore OFF, lots of malware and viruses hide there.
Follow this guide....

Sir I instolled xp. but not supported audio

You can download the drivers from Dell WEB site, the support download page. Make sure you select your model desktop or laptop, better still, type in the Service Tag number, it is printed on the label on the bottom of the laptop and on the back or sides of a desktop. (If the Service Tag label is missing then go into the BIOS setting and on one of the BIOS pages, the Service Tag number will be displayed). This will open the page where the specific drivers for your model computer are located. Also make sure you select the Windows XP or Vista version of the drivers for your Windows operating system. Click on this link to download the drivers: -

My norton 'all-in-one security' 2009 will not run a quick scan - it appears to be scanning but the message at bottom of screen informing me how many files, etc, have been scanned just stays at zero -...

Windows Vista has a very decent firewall. Better than norton. The only way to contact a virus is by inviting that virus onto your PC. You would do this by downloading an unknown file from an un-reliable source on the internet i.e nasty **** stuff which claims to be free. Norton Internet security is a rip off. Your machine will run better & just as secure without it. The world needs to wake up to the computer virus conspiracy. For personal computers AV software is pointless.

Reverting a computers OS to a previous version of MS Windows.

xp uses NFTS. The installation disc should give you aprompt for it. I know the world is going 'anti-vista' very quickly but is there a specific reason why you want xp. There seems to be so much hysteria concerning vista. I know some of it is fair but there does seem to be a band wagon going round now.
