You should enable automatic updates, this should download all updates to windows xp up to service pack 3 and all security updates. If you wan't another version of windows (vista or windows 7) you must buy and upgrade retail disc.

Unfortunately many programs did not upgrade their software when windows 7 came out. However, there is something called XP mode in windows 7 which emulates an XP environment. You can install it by following these instructions: http://www.microsoft.com/windows/virtual-pc/download.aspx. With it you'll be able to do anything you could in XP including access these files in question.

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!

How cn i download free windows xp pro? i have an old version of it,and i want to upgrade it


hye hi, well what u can do is reformat your computer and then from microsoft website you can download and install all the new latest definitions and updates and it will be better than the new XP disk because the disk which u r gonna buy would obviously be older then what they have on their website.. if u wish u can call microsoft and confirm the same.

I have the cosmi 20,000 recipies perogram in my old computer and the hard drive went out. I got a new Acer with Windows 7 and cannot get the old disk to load. The former computer was running Windows XP...


i think u are probably out of luck. this software looks like it came from the late 90s and will work with anything up to xp, but vista & win7 are a whole different ballgame. best solution, buy an old laptop with win98 or 2000 or xp super cheap on ebay, or beg one from a friend, and use ur software on it there in the kitchen. that's what i do with my old laptop. works great if u have room in the kitchen lol

also transfer ur fave recipes from 20,000 recipes to a recipe organizer program like mastercook, it's much much better for searching plus u can enter 1000s of new recipes from anywhere. u can get older versions of mastercook for $5 on ebay. version 8 works just great for me with winxp. (WARNING if ur interested in mastercook on ur NEW computer, get version 11, the older ones DON'T work w/Vista or win7.)

Dell Latitude xp pro product but I lost the cd.


Yes you can.
After installation you will need to activate it. If it wont activate online, then there is telephone activation option - always works.

My web cam ws not installed. when my os was changed to windows xp my camera doesnt function anymore


If you upgraded (especially from an earlier version of Windows) chances are you'll have to go to the Webcam's manufacturers website and download the proper drivers for Windows XP. Make sure you uninstall the old drivers and restart you computer before installing the new drivers.

Hope this helps

Original windows


Have a look at the bottom of your laptop and you should see a Windows label which will have the Produce key printed on the label.
Borrow a Windows installation CD, must be the same as the Windows version that is printed on the label eg. Windows XP Home, or Windows XP Professional or one of the Windows Vista versions.
Use this CD to reinstall Windows on your laptop.
If you haven't got a Windows label, you need to purchase a new Windows install CD or if you have a old version of Windows 98 or ME to can purchase a Windows Vista upgrade which is much cheaper than buying a new Windows Vista.

Wanting to upgrade old Mastercook program to meld to new computer


ValuSoft says that MasterCook 9.0 is only supported in Windows 98-XP. Specifically not Vista compatible. What's wrong with these people? I have Vista and didn't realize until tonight that some of MasterCook doesn't work right. So, buy XP.

what process did you do when upgrading windows Vista? If your going to upgrade with Windows Vista, Old version of windows will rename to windows.old so you can't access this old version because windows vista will take the priority, so all your program will disappear. You need to purchase another software for microsoft office.I hope it will enlightened your mind.anyway there are some process of making it possible for dual boot.if you are in need to experience windows vista at the same time windows xp.
