Application configuration problems

Most of my programs wont run because this window appears which says the program can't be run because application configuration is inccorect. Now this started happening with AVG and some other programs and games such as The Witcher after I reinstalled Windows XP Professional SP2 since it crashed because of viruses I got (connected to AVG not working anymore). Any help would be appreciated =) Thanks

How can fix microsoft visual c++ runtime library


Hello,

Which program is it?

Hello,
This is what I did.
1. Turn On PC as normal
2. Wait for prompt error to show up
3. When it appears, Run Task Manager (here you can see the task running the Error Prompt)
4. Right Click on the task and Choose > Go To Process (will take you to processes Tab)
5. See the highlighted Process, Right Click and Choose Open File Location
6. Windows Explorer will appear and you can see the Application Folder (name of application)
In my case, a 'browser toolbar application' was trying to auto initiate itself
7. Open Uninstall Programs > Search for Application Name > Uninstall (NOTE: PLEASE DO NOT UINSTALL IF THE PROGRAM IS A CORE FILE like Windows related program)..
8. Restart PC.....its gone :)


Another alternative:

Do a system restore. Click start > program > accessories > system tools > system restore.

Restore it to a known good date when your computer was fine.


I hope this helps.

Resolving Software Compatibility Issues


The Software Compatibility Troubleshooter

Most applications designed for Windows 7 and earlier versions work automatically on Windows 8.1 and newer. However, when an older program fails to work properly on your current OS-for example, it runs slowly or not at all-you should attempt to resolve the problem by using the Program Compatibility troubleshooter, which runs the software while simulating the behavior of an earlier version of Windows. Often this relatively simple process can resolve the problem and allow the program to run. You can open the troubleshooting tool by following these steps:
1. Open the Control Panel.
2. Under System and Security, click Find and fix problems.
3. Within the Troubleshooting screen, click Run programs made for previous versions of Windows

1-ydpxpf3wblkuljzof3anecxv-4-2.jpg

4. On the Program Compatibility Troubleshooter screen, click Next.
5. Select the program that is having problems, and then click Next.
6. Once Windows has modified the settings, click the Try recommended settings to run the application using the recommended compatibility settings option.
7. Click Test the program.
8. Once the program opens, you should evaluate to see if the problems still occur. 9. Close the program and return to the troubleshooting wizard. Click Next.
10. Choose one of the following three options, or click Cancel to abort the process: a. Yes, save these settings for this program b. No, try again using different settings c. No, report the problem to Microsoft and check online for a solution
11. If the program behaved correctly, you should click Yes. The troubleshooting is complete. Click Close to close the troubleshooter.

If the Try recommended settings do not work, you should rerun the Program Compatibility Troubleshooter; but this time, select the Troubleshoot program option. Follow the wizard again and work through a number of scenarios, such as •The program expects to run on a previous OS, such as Windows 8, 7, Vista SP2, or XP SP3. •The program needs additional permissions to run, such as an administrator. •The program needs a different display environment, such as reducing the resolution or DPI scaling. The wizard also offers a combination of these scenarios. Frustratingly, the wizard does not allow you to go backward-if you make an incorrect selection, you need to cancel and rerun the wizard. In addition to the troubleshooter, you can also configure compatibility settings directly on the application by using the Compatibility tab found in the application's properties. 1. Locate the application executable or the application's shortcut within File Explorer (from the Start screen, right-click the application tile and select Open file location). 2. Right-click the application executable or the application's shortcut, and then click Properties. 3. On the Compatibility tab, select the settings you want to modify and click OK. 4. Rerun the application. Determine if the fix worked. Using the compatibility setting directly on the application allows you to configure additional settings; for example, you could do the following: •Reduce the display •Force the application to run in a 640 × 480 screen resolution •Apply the application fixes to all users on the computer You can also launch the Program Compatibility Troubleshooter from within the Compatibility tab.

DPI Scaling If you are using a Surface or Ultrabook, you may notice that these new devices have extremely high screen resolutions. By default, Windows scales the screen to magnify the size of text and other items on the screen so that they appear larger and are easier to view. You can modify this by launching the display utility directly by typing dpiscaling.exe in the Start screen, or it can be run from the Control Panel by performing the following steps:
1. Open the Control Panel.
2. Click Appearance and Personalization.
3. Within the Display section, click Make text and other items larger or smaller.
4. On the Display screen, change the size setting as required, and then click Apply.

The screen on my 7410 says HP invent with a moving bar on bottom and wont respond to anything. I have turnrd power of and it keeps coming up with same. Any idea?


When the software is installed for the printer, one of the applications that is added to the system is the HP Director. There are times when this application does not open on systems that are running the Windows XP operating system. One way to correct this is to run the program from the HP program group from the "All Programs" option on the Start menu. The application will load into the computer's memory but does not appear on the screen. Press "ALT" + space bar to view the shortcut menu. Select "minimize" to display the program on the taskbar. Another option is to update the program by visiting the HP Software Download Page (see Resources).

Windows wants to configurate certain programs every time l open them


If you see the pop up "Please wait while windows configures..." when you open an application, it means that an important module of the program is damaged or missing. First determine the application that this is happening with, and then completely uninstall/reinstall the program. If it continues to happen, you will need to have a professional look at the installation.

Soft ware for window 98.ihave windows visa


When an application fails to run, start the Program Compatibility Wizard by clicking on Start \ Control Panel and select 'Use an older program with this version of Windows' listed at the bottom of the side bar.
-Click Next to start the wizard.
-In the next screen, I like to choose the first option instead of hunting around for the program executable. If you do know where the executable resides, select the third option. -Click Next to continue.
-Once the list is displayed, scroll through and find the application you want to run in Compatibility mode. -Click Next to continue.

-Select the version of Windows, the application was originally written to run on. If you do not know, start out with Windows XP (SP2). One advantage of using the wizard is the test mode functionality shown later.
--The next screen list options if your program has problems handling the higher quality video of Vista. For now, click Next to continue. After the wizard completes and the test fails, you will have the option to return to this screen. Experiment with the settings by starting off with disabling visual themes and desktop composition, if you can't get things working.
The below table list definitions for each setting:

  • Run in 256 colors - This forces the entire screen to 256 colors while the application is running
  • Run in 640×480 screen resolution — Runs the program in a smaller-sized window. Try this setting if the graphical user interface appears jagged or is rendered improperly.
  • Disable visual themes - Disables themes on the program. Try this setting if you notice problems with the menus or buttons on the title bar of the program.
  • Disable desktop composition - Turns off transparency and other advanced display features. Choose this setting if window movement appears erratic or you notice other display problems.
  • Disable display scaling on high DPI settings - Turns off automatic resizing of programs if large-scale font size is in use. Try this setting if large-scale fonts are interfering with the appearance of the program.
-Next, if the application requires Administrative privileges, select this option. --Otherwise click Next.
--NOTE--: You will have the option to return to this setting if the program fails to run during the test.
-On the next screen, click Next to test the application. If successful select the first option and click Next to continue.
-If the application failed to run or has problems (such as video), select the second option to go back and make additional changes.
---After a successfull test, select either Yes or No to send information to Microsoft, then click Finish to save your settings.
To reset the compatibility settings back to the original settings, run the wizard again and in the 'Select a compatibility mode for the program', select the last option to 'not apply a compatibilty mode'.
-One big advantage to using the Program Compatibility Wizard, is that you can view which programs or applications are running in compatibility mode by running the wizard and checking the settings column.
-If running an older software application in compatability mode fails, check the software manufacturer site for information or updates to the software.
