Borland wont open on vista laptop

I have recently bought a colour formulation cd rom for my paint business. However the laptop I want to run this on wont install the program, it brings up an error message during installation, to say that it cant open the Borland application folder. yes you've guessed it, the operatiing system is Vista.
can you think of any way round this, as the use of this colour system is crucial to my business, and at present its costing me money by not using.
much appreciated in advance

Can I use my Borland Delphi 5 CD for installing Delphi 5 on my new Windows 7 computer


This is the last version of Borland dBASE for Windows (next version is Visual dBASE 5.5).

This is VERY unlikely to work as it was designed for much earlier operating systems.

Windows 7 is a very different architecture - maybe it time to upgrade.

Cd Rom not working


Go to device manager and delete the CD-ROM Drive and restart the system (this will get auto installed). You can also do a System Restore to a point/date when the issue was not present. (start > all programs > accessories > system tools > system restore)

CD ROM is jammed-wont open


This has happened to me. Sometimes when I'm in a hurry I'll place a CD or DVD in the tray and start to close it without making sure that the disk is seated flat in the tray. If it's ****-eyed the CD wil shatter when the tray is closed. The only way to remove the pieces inside the CD drive is to take apart the CD drive. Might be easier just to replace the unit. They run from about $25.00 to $75.00. One other note: You can try to open the tray manually by inserting the end of a paper clip into a small hole on the front bezel of the drive.
