Re: Macromedia projector has stopped

You might try reinstalling Macromedia Projector (now Adobe Flash).

Sometimes if you use compatibility mode to run the game:

  • Click - Start, Programs, Accessories, Program Compatibility Wizard.
  • Follow the prompts to set up the compatibility mode.
  • Use Windows 98 compatibility, and disable visual themes.
Also you could change Apple Quicktime to run video in Safemode:
Quicktime Player > Edit > Quicktime Preferences > Advanced > and under Video Change from DirectX to Safe Mode (GDI)

You may need to reinstall Quicktime, but uninstall the old version first.

Having installed Serif Platinum on my old computer am now trying to install this on my new computer Windows 7 instead of XP and am getting an error message 230383 can anyone help please Kathleen

This probably popped up because Windows 7 can't handle alot of old programs without compactibility mode. Go to the installation .exe, click with your right mouse button on it, select properties, go to the tab "Compactibility", enable it, and select XP in the list.

Will not install

unfortunately, your computer is only 16 bit and will not load the program you are trying to load which requires a 64bit computer. two solutions. 1. get a larger bit computer or a lower level program which only requires 16bt or below.

Program shuts down when starting if for the 2nd time.

The game must have been corrupted.
The only way is to uninstall it then reinstall it again.
Also make sure that your pc meets the system requirements to run the game. Free up your disk space too, before you reinstall the game.

After downloading a game for my son onto his computer he recieved a message that the application crashed. What does this mean? How is it fixed? He is quite upset and I don't know what to do

mostlly this happens when you downloaded a corrupt file, anyway let see if we can fix it using the restore mode, if you're already familiar with it try to restore it using the date before the game was installed if not follow these instruction.

1. upon bootup press "F8" and wait for the option that lets you select some option such as safe mode, safemode with networking, etc, etc,

2. select the "safe mode", your pc will load with only minimal option a popup box will appear asking if you're going to use restore mode. (if your pc crashes before it loads the system stop rigth here, your system needs to be reformat, otherwise pls proceed)

3. click "START", "Program", "Accessories", "System Tools", and then "System restore"

4.popup box will appear select ok or continue until you reach the calendar option that will let you select the date you want to restore in an earlier time, pls select the date before you install the game ex. you install the game on 10/15/09, then select the 10/14/09 or later then select ok or continue until it reaches finish.

5. reboot the pc, this should solve your problem

My GTA SAN ANDREAS gta_sa.exe has stopped working

you have installed mods: when are you installing mods, you are installing hidden files too. With too much hidden files, the game crashed. there is only one way to delete this hidden files so you can play gta sa again is reinstall windows. then you have no problems.
you have installed no mods: I don't know how to solve this. maby you can try to do this: Click start>Right click "my computer">Properties>Advanced> Under performance hit 'settings'>Data execution Prevention> hit "turn on DEP for all programs and services except those I select".
Hit Add, browse to your cracked .exe in the SA folder. Hit Apply. You should have to restart.

Now GTA should run.
