Expat sheild will not install due to compatibility issues

Did you uninstall with a program like Revo uninstaller? That program finds files that are often left behind with a routine uninstall.

Install it anyway... Tons drivers are not digitally signed. If that program is compatible with vista then more than likely it will work with windows 7 as well.

Make older programs run in this version of Windows (from help section in Windows 7)

Most programs written for Windows Vista also work in this version of Windows, but some older programs might run poorly or not at all. If a program written for an earlier version of Windows doesn't run correctly, you can try changing the compatibility settings for the program, either manually or by using the Program Compatibility troubleshooter.

getcontent.aspx?assetid=745c7204-cf9f-46fb-a86c-98d4b9c644cf&documentset=en-us&prod=win700&market=us Go to the Windows website to watch the video. (1:26)

If changing the settings doesn't fix the problem, go to the program manufacturer's website to see if there is an update for the program.

  • Do not use the Program Compatibility troubleshooter on older antivirus programs, disk utilities, or other system programs because it might cause data loss or create a security risk.

To run the Program Compatibility troubleshooter
  1. ? to open the Program Compatibility troubleshooter.

  2. Follow the instructions in the troubleshooter.

If you cannot install a program, insert the installation disc for the program and, using the troubleshooter, browse to the program's setup file, usually called Setup.exe, Install.exe, or something similar. The troubleshooter is not designed to work on programs that have an .msi file name extension.

  • You can also open the Program Compatibility troubleshooter by right-clicking a program's icon or shortcut and then clicking Troubleshoot compatibility.

Not compatible or not working well with windows 7?

Maybe, It doesn't work because the driver/application you installed is for other versions of operating system. I am also using windows 7 like you so don't you worry, You can still use your old installer/driver from other versions of operating systems. Just remember that before installing any program in a windows 7 Operating System Computer, Use "troubleshoot compatibility". Right Click the Icon of your program installer first, then choose "troubleshoot compatibility". This will allow you to choose on what type operating system your program will run. Just reply back if it still doesn't work.:D rate and vote for me:)) julyallan01_45.jpg

Want to uninstall Spy Sweeper and the error message says that the uninstall version is not compatible. How do I get a compatible version?

Go to control panel, then select "add or remove programs" (win xp), or select "programs and features" (win vista). Allow the computer a little time to build the program list, then from here you can uninstall the program. (If you can't find it, you might find it under a publisher name.)

Hope this helps.

Error message after installing software

First thing to check is to make sure your computer is compatible with the system requirements of the Barbie Girl. This sounds as if the Barbie Girl program is very old and you are using it on a very new computer. I've had this happen to me on vista with old windows 95 programs. Check your system requirements for that software, if it was designed for windows 95 it might not work. There might be a way to get it working in a compatibility mode which I can help you with, but first make sure your sys reqs are good. What version of windows?
