I have totalmedia 3,5 arcsoft per windows vista, but i need to use it with windows 7. Could you help me? Thank you Gennaro


The router may not be the problem. It may be the compatibility issue.
Here is the article that addresses running older program with Windows 7
Make older programs run in this version of Windows

Most programs written for Windows Vista also work in this version of Windows, but some older programs might run poorly or not at all. If a program written for an earlier version of Windows doesn't run correctly, you can try changing the compatibility settings for the program, either manually or by using the Program Compatibility troubleshooter.

getcontent.aspx?assetid=745c7204-cf9f-46fb-a86c-98d4b9c644cf&documentset=en-us&prod=win700&market=us Go to the Windows website to watch the video. (1:26)

If changing the settings doesn't fix the problem, go to the program manufacturer's website to see if there is an update for the program.
Warning

  • Do not use the Program Compatibility troubleshooter on older antivirus programs, disk utilities, or other system programs because it might cause data loss or create a security risk.

To run the Program Compatibility troubleshooter
  1. ?id=microsoft.windows.resources.shellexecutetopiciconClick to open the Program Compatibility troubleshooter.

  2. Follow the instructions in the troubleshooter.

If you cannot install a program, insert the installation disc for the program and, using the troubleshooter, browse to the program's setup file, usually called Setup.exe, Install.exe, or something similar. The troubleshooter is not designed to work on programs that have an .msi file name extension.
Tip

  • You can also open the Program Compatibility troubleshooter by right-clicking a program's icon or shortcut and then clicking Troubleshoot compatibility.


To change compatibility settings manually for a program, right-click the program icon, click Properties, and then click the Compatibility tab.

Can not run on windows xp


Most programs run properly on Windows XP. The exceptions are some older games and other programs that were written specifically for an earlier version of Windows. These programs may run poorly or not at all after you first upgrade to Windows XP. You may have heard this referred to as application compatibility issues or program compatibility issues.

You should run the Program Compatibility Wizard before you try other ways of updating your programs or drivers because it identifies compatibility fixes written specifically for Windows XP.

To run the Program Compatibility Wizard:

1.Click Start, and then click Help and Support.

2.Click Fixing a problem, and then click Application and software problems.

3.Under Fix a problem click Getting older programs to run on Windows XP.

4.Read the instructions and then click the Program Compatibility Wizard.

Update Your Program or Drivers

If your program does not run correctly after testing it with the Program Compatibility Wizard, check the Web site of the program's manufacturer to see if an update or patch is available. Also, go to Microsoft Update to see if a fix is available there.

If the program is a game that uses Microsoft DirectX®, make sure that you’re using the latest version of Microsoft DirectX. In addition, check the Web site of the manufacturer of your video card or sound card to see if newer drivers are available for either of them.

I hope this helped!

Getting older programs to run on Windows XP Getting older programs to run on Windows XP Most programs run properly on Windows XP. The exceptions are some older games and other programs that were written specifically for an earlier version of Windows. To run your program on Windows XP, try the following:
  1. Run the Program Compatibility Wizard. As an alternative, you can set the compatibility properties manually.
  2. Update your program, drivers, or hardware.
These options are covered in detail below.
The Program Compatibility Wizard This wizard prompts you to test your program in different modes (environments) and with various settings. For example, if the program was originally designed to run on Windows 95, set the compatibility mode to Windows 95 and try running your program again. If successful, the program will start in that mode each time. The wizard also allows you to try different settings, such as switching the display to 256 colors and the screen resolution to 640 x 480 pixels.
If compatibility problems prevent you from installing a program on Windows XP, run the Program Compatibility Wizard on the setup file for the program. The file might be called Setup.exe or something similar, and is probably located on the Installation disc for the program.
To run the Program Compatibility Wizard
  1. Start the Program Compatibility Wizard.
  2. Follow the instructions in the wizard.
