Question about Microsoft Windows Vista Ultimate Edition

2 Answers

Download problems I am trying to download a game from a website. I have downloaded the game onto another computer and it downloaded fine (that computer has XP) I am trying to download onto Vista and it starts to download and then after a period of time it appears to be finished early. Then when I click run I get the message saying something about not Win32 something. I have tried deleting the temporary internet files, I have all Microsoft updates and it still won't let me download. Can you please help. Thanks Tammy Robeson

    When I right click on the download button it doesn't say anything about administration. How do I get this to work.



    Otherwise how do you go about putting XP on this computer and taking vista off, as there seems to only be problems with vista.

The problem is your Vista does not have win32 application, i mean vista is designed for 64 bit cpu not 32 bit cpu, when you install the game on XP, XP support your 32 bit CPU that's why game works on XP.

Have you tried right clicking on the install icon and running it as administration?
With all new installed files that dont run as normal try running them as administration.
Hope this helps.
If not please post the exact error message that comes up when you click run.
Thanks

    I misunderstood the post you are having trouble downloading not installing, im sorry.
    Banar is correct with Vista being in x64 and not x32.
    You can downgrade to XP.
    Firstly you will need a legitimate copy of Windows XP, then you will need to change the bios to Boot from the CD First and HDD second.
    Then after the POST screen it will give you the option to boot from the CD.
    Boot from the cd and follow the prompts to install Windows.
    Remember to format your HDD so vista is completely gone.
    I hope its a good game cause a genuine copy of windows can cost a fair bit.

How to Download Games onto PSP- Step 1-

Your regular PSP games will come on disc, or UMD as they are known. When you download games onto PSP however, you are going to be putting them straight onto a memory stick/card. (Some people call them memory sticks, and some people say memory cards, but they are in fact the same thing.) The standard PSP memory card of 32mb is just not going to be big enough to download games onto, PSP owners should generally get the largest one they can afford. These days you can find fairly affordable 2 or 4 gig models on Ebay and Amazon quite easily. Once you have your new memory card, you will need to format it before use. This is basically like wiping the slate clean before use, so be sure to do it.

How to Download Games onto PSP-Step 2-

You will need to locate somewhere to download the games from. There are hundreds of places online that will allow you to download games onto PSP, but unfortunately they are not all reliable-if you go to the wrong places you will encounter many problems and can even find your computer riddled with spyware after. Not good! Be sure to choose a reputable site to download PSP games from-the most reliable ones are the ones that charge a small fee upfront and then give you access to unlimited downloads.

How to Download Games onto PSP-Step-3-

Once you begin downloading to your computer, be sure to only download files that end in "PSP" or have "PSP" in the title, as they are the only files compatible. You will occasionally find that the untrustworthy sites out there will try and give all kinds of files as downloads, so be sure to double check everything before you download it. When downloading the games I save them to a little folder on my desktop called "PSP Downloads, as it's simply the easiest place!

How to Download Games onto PSP-Step 4-

Now that you have a selection of games downloaded, you will need to transfer them from your PC onto the memory card of your PSP. This is pretty simple, all you will need is an ordinary USB cable to connect the two, and the PC should then identify the PSP as some form of removable drive, like a flashdrive or removable HD. All you need to do from here is to open up the PSP using the PC and drag and drop the required files onto the PSP memory stick, much as you would with any other removable drive. When you are doing this, be sure to send the files into folders called PSP, and then GAME on your memory card. If they don't exist you will need to create them, and I would recommend using all caps.

How to Download Games onto PSP-Step 6-

Once the transfer is finished you should be able to play the games on the PSP by simply opening up the GAME menu and selecting the games from the stick. Any errors or error messages are likely to be due to incompatible firmware-this is especially true if downloading homebrew games. You may find it necessary to downgrade your PSP in order to play these homebrew games.

Hopefully this guide has helped you see that it's not that tough at all to download games onto PSP once you get the hang of it, the real trick is finding a reliable download source!


I would suggest downloading PSP games using torrents. Just go to www.thepiratebay.org and search for PSP games. You'll need to have mutorrent or some other torrent software on your computer to download the torrents with. Follow the instructions once you have the downloaded game via a torrent and you'll be good to go. Good luck.

How do i download free psp go games


Like many others who had purchased original PSP games from the retail outlets, you will realize that as the games is completed, buying new games seem to be getting expensive and unaffordable. What else can I do if I want to continue to play new or old fashioned games on my PSP console? I start search and looking for website that offers free PSP download games.

Once I had downloaded the PSP games onto my console, how to play PSP download games was my next question. I'm not sure exactly how PSP works when I download new PSP games onto the unit, but I sure have found some answers while I was looking for it. Since I'm facing and struggling with this problem on how to play PSP download games on my unit, lots of other people must be also getting the same problem.

Hope that I get this right for everyone to play PSP download games because I used the same method here to play on my console. Before we get started, I'm using a PSP unit with firmware of 1.5 and having a Sony PSP compatible memory stick pro duo.

Since you are going to download the PSP games, you must download the games for the correct version of firmware, if not it will not work. Newer version of the firmware is available to anyone from the PSP official website. Most homebrew PSP games works with firmware 1.5 and below because the newer firmware upgrade is trying to block people from using homebrew games. Make sure the games you are downloading ends with PSP because only PSP files are compatible with Sony PSP unit.
instruction
  • Once the PSP games are downloaded, connect the PSP to your computer by using the USB cable that comes with the PSP console. Change your PSP console into PSP mode by pressing the "Home" button. Next scroll left to the "Setting" column and scroll down until "USB Connection". Press "X" button to enter PSP into USB mode.
  • To download the PSP games into your console, the games must be copied and downloaded onto the correct folder in order for the games to work. And the correct path is PSP > GAME in order for the any PSP games to work correctly. If the "PSP" and "GAME" folder does not exist on your PSP memory stick, you need to manually create the folder with folder name in ALL CAPS.
  • Once you have finished downloading or transferring the games onto the PSP memory stick, you can disconnect your PSP from the computer. From the PSP console main menu, scroll over to the "GAME" column on your Sony PSP and continue to scroll down on the memory stick. Press "X" and a list of game files will be displayed. Scroll downward and you will be able to see the games you have just installed.
  • Press "X" again to confirm your selection and play the PSP games. I had tried to practice the steps above many times in my PSP and it worked all the time. Hopefully it will also work for your console too.

    CivCity Rome shuts down windows on vista laptop


    That's wierd... O.K. yeah, its probably the vista thing... Or it might be the download. When you downloaded the game you might of gotten a faulty copy i.e. the game file has a virus. If it is the "vista" thing, than download the game onto another computer that can play it. Like how you said the game would work fine on your old XP PC, than it sounds like that's the computer you have to use. My advice, keep looking for different downloads to get the game, and keep searching for patches to try and fix the problem, if all else fails buy the game or call tech support. Hope this helps
