Can I use alohabob to go from Windowsxp to Windows 10


You might be able to move specific applications or software from a Windows XP computer to a Windows 10 computer, using that software. But you cannot go from Windows XP to 10 on the same computer. The hardware of the Windows XP machine, unless you downgraded the OS from Windows 7 or 8 to XP, was NOT designed to work with a operating system higher than XP. You can only upgraded a Windows 7 or 8 computer to Windows 10 (not that you would want to as the Windows 10 system is useless junk).


One of the reason that Microsoft offered the Windows 10 free was that people using 7 would not ditch their old computers to buy a new one fitted with windows 10. However to get around the problem of not having new hardware. They had to fudge and bodge the Windows 10 software to make it work on hardware designed for Windows 7.
So basically it's rubbish because corners were cut.

I have a tevion film strip scanner suitable for software Windows XP and Vista but my new laptop is Windows 7 and now it won't work. Can I download the software to use the scanner with my new l


Most things that worked fine with Windows XP and or Vista, can fail with Windows 7 and 8, because the factory that made the hardware in the first place does not ask for certification with Microsoft for their old Hardware. They only spend time and money to get their new hardware certified on the new operating systems.
So if you manage to get any driver, just test it. The software that came with your scanner should work. (At least in the XP compatible mode)
The next thing you can try is to download any free ware scanner software. Perhaps you can get a trail version of SilverFast, for your scanner. As soon as you have to pay for the software, think of buying a new scanner, because sometimes a Windows 7 or 8 compatible film scanner is cheaper than the software.

The SilverFast software starts at 59 dollar, (not even sure they have a compatible package for your scanner) My pro version costs already 300. But perhaps you can download a trail version there to see if it works for you. (Perhaps if you remove the software or stop using when you have to pay for it, the driver keeps working??)

Voyetra midi orchestrator


The only Voyetra Midi Orchestra Plus software I can know was written for Windows 3.1 and Windows 95. Thus there are several reasons for it to be incompatible with Windows 8. First, it was a 16-bit software; the most common Windows 8 installs use a 64-bit OS. This means that the OS has undergone a number of major changes. The installers are completely different (format/way of talking to the OS). The DLLs that communicate between the software and the OS have also changed. The drivers for MIDI devices will be totally different in the modern OS.

The documentation for Voyetra Midi Orchestra is available here: http://www.turtlebeach.com/support/files/241/ . It is a discontinued product and no one at the company that owns it will be writing a new version of the code for Windows 8. I'm not sure this software will work in Windows 7 32-bit. You might be able to use the software in a compatibility mode from a virtual version of XP. For Windows 7 Pro, Virtual PC and the XP mode package are available as free downloads and can be used if your hardware allows. Windows 8 Pro has Hyper-V but requires a licensed version of any Windows OS that you want to use. For non-pro versions of Windows software, you would need to buy a Pro upgrade. The alternative is to obtain another Virtual machine software (VMWare, for example) and a licensed copy of XP or an older version of Windows. (OEM Windows 7 Pro licenses are still available from many computer hardware vendors.)

I hope this helps.

CANNOT PLAY BICYCLE PINOCHLE SINCE UPDATING COMPUTER PLAYED BICYCLE PINOCHLE ON WINDOWS 98, CANNOT PLAY ON WINDOWS 7


Unfortunately, due to changes in the OS and how programs run, a program written for Windows 98 will not run under Windows 7 directly.

Even the compatibility mode will probably not work unless your version of Bicycle Pinochle for Windows was written for XP as well as Windows 98. (The WinXP version would possibly run under the Windows 7 32-bit version; it won't work under the 64-bit OS. To find your version of Windows 7, click Start > Control Panel > System and Security > System. If the version title ends with x64, you have the 64-bit OS. Otherwise, you have the 32-bit version.)

You need to either upgrade your game software or get an older version of Windows running somehow. This could be a virtual computer (runs inside your Windows 7 computer if your hardware permits it), a second machine or a dual boot computer. For Windows 98, you will need a licensed version of the OS for any method. Check a nearby Windows User's Group to see if anyone there has the OS.

If your version of Pinochle could run under Windows XP and you have Win7 Pro or Ultimate (or upgrade to them), you can run a virtual version of XP for free. In this case, download and install (in order) Virtual PC and XP mode from Microsoft. Then install the software in the XP computer as if it were the only computer running. (The compatibility mode didn't work inside XP mode for software written for Windows 2K so I doubt a Win98 program will work.)

An XP version of Bicycle Pinochle was offered by Microsoft: http://www.microsoft.com/games/bicycle/card/ . A Windows 7 version of Single Deck Pinochle is here: http://www.sac-irca.com/pino.html .

I wish that I had better news for you.

Scanner doesnt have a driver for windows 7


This may help. Depending on your version of windows 7 you may be able to run Windows XP as a virtual machine and still user your scanner under XP Mode. You will have to install the XP driver for your scanner on the XP virtual machine running on your Windows 7 computer.

Windows 7 has several built-in tools to help with program compatibility and Windows XP programs should be installed directly on Windows 7. Windows XP Mode runs many older Windows XP productivity programs and that are not natively compatible with Windows 7, thus helping realize cost savings and reduce possible operational downtime by extending the life of existing software.

HERE is the direct link to instructions on downloading and using XP Mode on Windows 7

I have replaced my windows xp with windows 7 and my tigerwoods 06 won't play. and it did with windowds xp.


Download the FREE Windows 7 XP Mode, install it, then reinstall your software in XP Mode following the XP Mode Application Instructions. Another alternative is to use the FREE XP mode virtual machine under Windows 7. You can then load software that is compatible with XP But not Windows 7 in the XP virtual machine.

Works excellently

Do I need Windows XP Mode?
Windows 7 has several built-in tools to help with program compatibility and Windows XP programs should be installed directly on Windows 7. Windows XP Mode runs many older Windows XP productivity programs and that are not natively compatible with Windows 7, thus helping realize cost savings and reduce possible operational downtime by extending the life of existing software. Visit the Windows 7 Compatibility Center to find software that works with Windows 7.

It's the best of both worlds: The new Windows XP Mode lets you run older Windows XP business software right on your Windows 7 desktop.

Designed primarily with small- and medium-sized businesses in mind, Windows XP Mode comes as a separate download and works only with Windows 7 Professional, Ultimate, and Enterprise. Windows XP Mode also requires virtualization software such as Windows Virtual PC. Both are available free on the Microsoft website.
