    I'm sorry, it took about 5 hours to download the Windows Vista 3.0 program. Yhen it was bed time. Then work. Yes I have a dell inspiron 1501 with windows vista home basic. Going to ask dad how to log in as administrator:) and try it again. I will get back to you after i have tried and update you either way. PS Thank you so much for your help so far. Ally

    Just talked to him and he said I am the administrator. It's my personal computer. Is there something else I should do?

  • allybandy Apr 11, 2008

    I can't get the F8 button to do anything, I've tried it 4 times now. The last time the computer went into a fix error mode. Am I doing it wrong? I hit the start button and then the F8 button but it still just takes me to the same login start page. No safe mode window.

    Sorry if it sent multiple posts to your site but I always hit the send or post key only once. I had trouble this past week with multiple windows appearing????Don't know if it is related.

    Thank You Ally

  • allybandy Apr 11, 2008

    I give up. I tried 6 more times and F8 does nothing. I think I will just return the program. Thank you somuch though for trying to help. Ally

  • allybandy Apr 11, 2008

    Problem solved. An Online friend suggested this and it worked. I thought I would pass it on to you. On the program set up page, I right clicked the Autorun tab. That brought up the option to run as Administrator. All I can say is it worked. Again thanks for your considerable effort and time. I hope this doesn't send you another batch of multiple posts. Ally

  • allybandy Apr 11, 2008

    Sorry, Vista is giving a lot of people headaches lol. It's all I've worked with so I am comfortable. I've been learning a lot for just trial and error. I would love to have given you a better rating, you were superb at what you did do;) if they separated the rating you'ld have gotten 100+ for effort and kindness. (My Vista Manual doesn't tell how to get Admin login either. Maybe it's not possible.)

    You have Windows Vista, right? It is said that the failure on Windows Vista is caused by a custom action that fails with an access denied error. In other words your installation tried something Vista was not prepared for. Here is a link with a fix that is known to work:

    I hope you beat this.

    On 2nd glance, that solution would be very difficult for you to work around with. I'll keep looking for one for you.

  • AL Arena Apr 09, 2008


    I never did hear back about what operating system. You are using Vista, right?

    When you install software on Vista, you Have To be logged in as Administrator, first off. Try that and get back to me, because the other fixes I found would require you to get someone you know whose computer literate to make them work. Here's a link to one page I visited with some cures. Don't try them yourself. If I had Vista I would try them myself and give you detailed instructions. But I'll stick to XP Pro until the next operating system after Vista.

    Yes, start the computer, press F8, and go into safe mode. Log in by clicking on Administrator, and try to install the software.

    You have to log in as Administrator, not as just a user with Administrator privileges.

    PS When you send a reply, please just send it once. Don't keep clicking send. lol! I got eight of these from you. No harm done, everything is a good lesson. Best wishes.

  • AL Arena Apr 11, 2008

    Your keyboard is stuck maybe, the Return key pretty much for sure, or the left button on your mouse. Who knows, maybe the F8 key also. Get your Dad to clean it, he'll get it working. Then, when you start up the computer, wait about 5 seconds and Then press the F8 key, but do not hold it down. It's OK to press it a few times, however.

  • AL Arena Apr 11, 2008

    I'm glad. I tried, but I don't know Vista. Are you going to give me a rating, at least?

I'm trying to run my Hypertech ECON programmer for my 2010 Silverado, when I install the disk it gives me a error code 2869 and exits me out of the install. Am running WIndows 7

It seems that Windows 7 is not compatible with this program and thus the error 2869. the program in the Program Compatibility Assistant utility in Windows 7.
then select the caption that says it ran on a previous Operating system ( that is Windows XP/ Vista etc. and select the radio dial to the left and click apply.
Instruction from Windows help:
Run the Program Compatibility troubleshooter
Click to open the Program Compatibility troubleshooter.

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.

try to verify if your ROM can read DVD disc, or may be the disc is damage.

try to insert your software to other DVD rom to manually check the printworkshop. if read then, you DVD rom got error or what so ever causes. maybe it a system failure.

If you are sure that your ROM is working properly, then you have to consult the vendor of the print workshop.

may this help,
