Here is the solution for your problem :
A problem has been identified when installing early pressings of the CD-ROM on machines running Windows 98 or Windows ME in conjunction with certain antivirus software and firewalls. The installation appears to be successful but the OALD 7 Compass program fails to launch with no error message given, or with a message "License data invalid".
Should you encounter this problem:

  1. Download oald7.zip (4.5 megabytes)
  2. Unzip oald7.zip to extract the oald7.exe program
  3. Ensure your OALD 7 Compass CD-ROM is in your CD-ROM drive
  4. Replace the old oald7.exe file on your computer (this is usually found in c:\Program Files\Oxford\OALD7) with the new oald7.exe file you have downloaded
  5. You should now be able to run the OALD 7 Compass software
If the download doesn't work, we can send you this file on a CD-ROM - please email us , and tell us your full postal address. You will need to copy the update file to your hard drive to install it, as you will need your OALD 7 Compass CD-ROM in your CD-ROM, as above.
Please email eltdict.help@oup.com if you require further help.

Another issue may be Ur antivirus is blocking install. Suspend Ur protection (while not on line) and try again.

Could be compatibality issue or driver for xp. r click on the program on the unit you want to use. you will see the general, shortcut, and commpatability click and there you will see compatability section make adjustments and hopefully that will do.

now if you have driver issues w this program. you will need to find the tab with roll back drivers or update for this program.

one of these two should do. and i might note that was a keen approach to diagnoising your issue by trying it on a seperate unit.

You cannot upgrade (as you say load ) from Windows XP to Windows XP. You simply cannot do this and there is no point in doing it as I explain. You can upgrade Windows XP to Windows Vista easily. In the case that you want to keep Windows XP and want to enjoy better security and new features than what you do is you go to "My computer" icon and right click it and then take properties of it. The new page that will open you carefully check for these SP1(Service Pack 1), SP2 (Service Pack 2) or likewise SP3.
If you do not find any (SP)Service Packs than according to your requirement you can download and install SP1 or SP2.
Caution: The third level service Pack for Windows XP is SP3. Microsoft has declared that it is not for everyone. I strongly discourage you to install SP3 unless you have a strong requirement for it. After that you can put your XP on normal regular updates from Microsoft.

Good Luck!

Need to install install XP PRO on used cluttered hardrive.


Please follow this excellent guide XP Pro Clean Install to lead you through the process.
Check first to be sure your system meets the requirements for an installation of XP.
Also make sure beforehand that you back up any documents or files you wish to save from the old drive, because you will not have access to them after installation. Make sure you have a CD with Drivers for the hardware installed on your system; you will need these to access the internet once you install the new OS. Also be sure to have downloaded AntiVirus software installation files so you can load this onto the new system before going online.
You could, if you choose, buy a new hard drive and install your existing drive as a slave to the new master on your existing computer. In this way, you will still have access to all your old files and documents, without having to back them up.
Best of luck, and enjoy XP!

Have Windows XP, Home Edition. Cannot install Service Patch 3,


Beethoven 9 is not part of the service pack. Go to microsoft and download the service pack as is. If you don't have a fully registeredwindows program, you will have problems until you register it. I've downloaded all service packs and updates for the past 7 years on different levels of windows without any problems. You must have them registered to prove you have an authentic purchased program, not something copied from someone elses setup disks.

Os errer


To repair Windows OS system files you can use SFC Command and if you wish to replace windows installation you can boot from CD and go to setup then it will detect old installation then you can press "R" key, I'm not sure that what kinda files you trying to replace so try sfc first and if not go for the 2nd option


System File Checker gives an administrator the ability to scan all protected files to verify their versions. If System File Checker discovers that a protected file has been overwritten, it retrieves the correct version of the file from the cache folder (%Systemroot%\System32\Dllcache) or the Windows installation source files, and then replaces the incorrect file. System File Checker also checks and repopulates the cache folder. You must be logged on as an administrator or as a member of the Administrators group to run System File Checker. If the cache folder becomes damaged or unusable, you can use the sfc /scannow, the sfc /scanonce, or the sfc /scanboot commands to repair its contents. uparrow.gifBack to the top
System File Checker Tool Syntax loadTOCNode(2, 'moreinformation'); Sfc [/Scannow] [/Scanonce] [/Scanboot] [/Revert] [/Purgecache] [/Cachesize=x]/Scannow: Scans all protected system files immediately and replaces incorrect versions with correct Microsoft versions. This command may require access to the Windows installation source files. • /Scanonce: Scans all protected system files one time when you restart your computer. This command may require access to the Windows installation source files when you restart the computer. The SfcScan DWORD value is set to 2 in the following registry key when you run this command: HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\Winlogon/Scanboot: Scans all protected system files every time you start your computer. This command may require access to the Windows installation source files every time you start your computer. The SfcScan DWORD value is set to 1 in the following registry key when you run this command: HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\Winlogon/Revert: Returns scan to the default setting (do not scan protected files when you start the computer).The default cache size is not reset when you run this command. This command is equivalent to the /Enable switch in Windows 2000. • /Purgecache: Purges the file cache and scans all protected system files immediately. This command may require access to the Windows installation source files. • /Cachesize=x: Sets the file cache size to x megabytes (MB). The default size of the cache is 50 MB. This command requires you to restart the computer, and then run the /purgecache command to adjust the size of the on-disk cache. This command sets the SfcQuota DWORD value to x in the following registry key: HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\WinlogonFor additional information about the Windows File Protection feature, click the article number below to view the article in the Microsoft Knowledge Base: 222193 (http://support.microsoft.com/kb/222193/EN-US/) Description of the Windows 2000 Windows File Protection Feature
