Hi

You can try windows compatibility mode, you get to this by clicking the start button - accessories - system tools

Choose win 98 or win 95 and see if it works, let me know if you're stuck

SOURCE: Zoombini's Logical Journey won't start up

If the program produces an error right after hitting the Play button, I had success by launching the file Zoombinis Logical Journey.exe in compatability mode using Window 98 / ME and 640 x 480 resolution. The shortcut that is created during install points to TLCRUN.EXE which was what caused my error.

SOURCE: how can install zoombinis on window 7

You should navigate to the setup file on the disc, right click, select 'Properties', choose the 'Compatibility' tab, select the 'Run in compatibility mode for:' checkbox, select 'Windows 98/Windows ME'. Then run the setup program.

Alternatively, you could right click on the setup file and choose the 'Troubleshoot Compatibility' option.

The problem here is that you likely have Windows 7 x64 which has little support for 16 bit programs. You may be able to run your program in Windows Virtual PC (XP mode) if you installed it, but the program will likely run rather slowly.

If the solutions I have provided do not work, then I hate to say this, but you are out of luck.

When i turn on my apple 3rd gen 20gb ipod it comes up with the apple sign and after a few seconds it comes up with and ipod with a sad face and www.apple.com/support/ipod underneath. What do i do??


The first thing is to connect your iPod to the computer it is paired with. When iTunes recognizes it, click the button returning it to factory settings. This will delete all data from your iPod, but should repair any software problems.
If iTunes is having a problem recognizing the iPod, than place it into Disk Mode: (From http://www.apple.com/support/ipod/earlier/)
  1. Before placing the iPod into disk mode, you should verify that it is charged.
  2. Toggle the Hold switch on and off. (Set it to Hold, then turn it off again.)
  3. Press and hold the Menu and Select buttons for at least 6 seconds until the Apple logo appears.
  4. When the Apple logo appears, release the Menu and Select buttons and immediately press and hold the Select and the Play/Pause buttons until the Disk Mode screen appears
  5. Connect the iPod to your computer; the screen on the iPod will change and say "Do not disconnect"

If you are having difficulty putting the iPod model into disk mode, set it on a flat surface. Make sure that the finger pressing the Select button is not touching the Click Wheel. Also make sure that you are pressing the Play/Pause button toward the outside of the Click Wheel and not near the center.

If you are still unable to put your iPod with a Click Wheel into Disk Mode, use one finger from one hand to press the Select button, and one finger from the other hand to press the Play/Pause button.

I recently upgraded windows vista to windows 7. i did this for the sole purpose of getting my zoombinis logical journey to work and run. it will not start and i need to know if there's anthing i can do to...


well, i thought that windows 7 would have been developed to be compatible with ALL of the previous systems and programs that they were compatible with. as it is, windows 7 DOES have a way in the control panel that helped me out... there's actually a link in the control panel called "run programs made for previous versions of windows" it took a few tries to get the right setup for the game, but it's pretty self explanatory. sometimes it takes a couple of tries to start it up, but now i CAN play Zoombinis on my windows 7 pc.

I get this error when I try to play a DVD on my laptop using WDVD


I assume that you are using a TV with the Computer to watch a Blu-Ray disc using HDMI connection.

In order to play a Blu-ray Disc (BD) movie on a television, the display configuration must be set to display on the television only. Having the image set to display on the computer and the television at the same time will generate the above STOP error message "Your display environment does not support protected content playback message".

Follow this procedure to properly configure the settings
needed to play a Blu-ray Disc (BD) movie on a television.

1. Connect the Computer to the TV using an HDMI cable.

2. On the Computer, click the Start -> Control Panel -> Appearance and Personalization -> Adjust screen resolution.

3. In the Display Settings window, click the Advanced Settings button -> Intel Graphics Media Accelerator tab -> Graphics Properties button.

4. In the Intel Graphics Media Accelerator window, under Operating Mode, click the down arrow and then click to select Single Display.

5. Under Primary Device click the down arrow and then click to select Digital Television, and then OK.

6. At the Confirm the Desktop Change prompt, click the OK.

7. In the Advanced Settings window, click the OK button.

8. In the Display Settings window, click the OK button.

9. In the Control Panel window, click Hardware and Sound.

10. In the Hardware and Sound window, under Sound, click Manage audio devices.

11.In the Sound window, click to select HDMI Device, and then click the Set Default button.

12. In the Sound window, click the OK button.

13. Now close the Control Panel window.


NOTE: Also check for any update for the software you are using to play the videos and update for the Video Driver

Good Luck!!!!!!!!!!

Now connect the iPod to your computer; the screen on the iPod will change and say "Do not disconnect".

When I connect my ipod nano 4th gen to my PC it won't appear in iTunes or in My Computer... What do I do to fix it?


These directions are taken from Apple.com.
Putting iPod into Disk Mode
http://docs.info.apple.com/article.html?artnum=93651

"1. Before manually placing the iPod into Disk Mode you should verify
that it has a charge, if not you need to either charge iPod before
continuing or connect it to power. You can either connect it to a
high-powered USB port, or plug the iPod Power Adapter into an
electrical outlet and connect iPod to the power adapter.

2. Toggle the Hold switch on and off. (Set it to Hold, then turn it off again.)

3. Press and hold the Menu and Select buttons for at least 6 seconds
until the Apple logo appears.

4. When the Apple logo appears, release the Menu and Select buttons
and immediately press and hold the Select and the Play/Pause buttons
until the Disk Mode screen appears.

5. Disconnect iPod from the power adapter and connect it to your
computer; the screen on the iPod will change and say "Do not
disconnect"

If you are having difficulty putting an iPod model with a Click Wheel
into Disk Mode, set the iPod on a flat surface. Make sure that the
finger pressing the Select button is not touching the Click Wheel.
Also make sure that you are pressing the Play/Pause button toward the
outside of the Click Wheel and not near the center.

If you are still unable to put your iPod with a Click Wheel into Disk
Mode, use one finger from one hand to press the Select button, and one
finger from the other hand to press the Play/Pause button."

This of course can also be used in reverse to switch from Hard Drive
mode back to iPod mode.

Does your display adapter currently support TV input? It's not up to the OS, but it is dependent on hardware.
