Programme does'nt open

I installed Oxford Advance Learners Compass in my computer having all system requirements( Windows XP SP 2 ). But it does'nt open. I tried it on another computer with lesser config than me. It opened correctly. What could be the reason for not opening in my system?

    The solution forwarded by Anurag1501 was very helpful. My sincere regards to Anurag and Fixya team. The OALD opened. However when I try to open Oxford genie the programme again closes.

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.

Can windows 7 run GTA IV.


Hi,
Running GTA 4 on windows 7 should not be a problem. You just have to run the installer using compatibility mode. Right click on the "setup.exe" then choose Properties. Go to Compatibility tab and tick "run this program in compatibility mode for", choose windows xp sp 3. That should allow you to install GTA 4 on windows 7. Bear in mind that you have to install GfW Live and the C++ 2005 files seperately which can be found in the disk as well. More importantly, make sure that your computer meets the system requirements for the game.
Here it is: System Requirements
Minimum System Requirements
OS: Windows Vista - Service Pack 1 / XP - Service Pack 3 Processor: Intel Core 2 Duo 1.8Ghz, AMD Athlon X2 64 2.4Ghz Memory: 1.5GB, 16GB Free Hard Drive Space Video Card: 256MB NVIDIA 7900 / 256MB ATI X1900
Recommended System Requirements
OS: Windows Vista - Service Pack 1 / XP - Service Pack 3 Processor: Intel Core 2 Quad 2.4Ghz, AMD Phenom X3 2.1Ghz Memory: 2 GB (Windows XP) 2.5 GB (Windows Vista) 18 GB Free Hard Drive Space Video Card: 512MB NVIDIA 8600 / 512MB ATI 3870
After installing the game and you're not able to run it, Try running the main executable file of the game in compatibility mode as well.

Hope this helps.

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!

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.
