Question about Microsoft Windows XP Professional for PC

Installing Windows XP alongside Vista

Our office computers use XP with Netware software for the server. We recently got a new PC which came with Vista. But there's no Netware Client software for Vista.
I don't particularly want to lose the Vista software and understand you can run XP on a separate partition. However, when I try to install XP (which seems to be product specific, ie Hyunju), it wants to wipe the hard drive on the new computer.

    Thanks, goldflack.

    However, we don't have the vista software - new PCs come with the OS installed and no disks. So, if I wipe the HD to install XP, Vista is gone.

    Also, the XP software I have is product-specific and may not want to install on our new PC.

My computer is not installing my photo impact 8.5


Photo impact pro as a software has compatibility requirements. For example, impact pro was invented during the times of windows Xp operating systems with Microsoft computers. Imply that, impact pro would hardly function with apple Mac computers. Since the Xp operating systems, computers have gone through design fronts of Windows Vista 1 & 2, and recently displaying Windows 7 on those acquired on the market over years ago. The most recent multimedia photo editor software's acquirable on the retail market have compartibilies with more recent computers. Alternately, performing a computer alteration may achieve installation capabilities. First, finding a computer still functioning on windows XP, millennium, 2000 or 1998 would make installation possible. However, sustain wearsomeness since windows 98 earlier years computers were least designed for multimedia capabilities as known with Photo Impact Pro 8.5. Second, a possibility of acquiring Windows Xp disk software on the retail market to replace the one on the computer would make impact pro installable. However like known of operating system software's, it is only possible to install the same operating system on an existing one on a computer as restoration purposes. If different software should be acquired like XP requesting installation on windows Vista or Windows 7, the entire hard disk drive has to be erased of media traces of the prior. Alerternately, a new operating system may be installed if only a new hard drive, memory cards were acquired to replace the prior on the computer to make possible installation of Photo Impact pro 8.5

Trying to load office 2003, keep getting message, requires elevation


This feature can be seen in XP as well as Vista computers. if such error occurs in xp try making a new user account with administrator rights and then try to install office 2003. also check the services.msc from run window and be sure that the windows installer is started.
In case of vista try installing from administrator account and if this is not working create new user account with administrator rights. even if this gives the problem then User Account control (UAC) should be turned off. this will probably solve ur problem.

Netware Authentication Failure


There is a Windows XP service that often causes this problem, called "Routing and Remote Access". (C:\WINDOWS\system32\svchost.exe -k netsvcs )

Try to disable this service and see if your problem disappears.

  1. Right-click "My computer"
  2. choose "Manage"
  3. look for "Services" (you might have to expand "Services and Applications")
  4. scroll down to "Routing and Remote Access"
  5. left-click "Routing and Remote Access"
  6. click "Properties"
  7. click (in the General tab) "Startup type" and select "Disabled".
  8. If the service is running, select "Stop".
  9. Try to log in again or (better) restart the machine and you should be good to go.

If you have any more questions or this did not solve your problem, just come back here and leave a comment - I'm happy to help.
