First we need to know that which software disk you have .?
IF it windows 7 say it is incompatible for win7 64 bit then it should be compatible with 32 bit system.
For that you need software disk which is compatible for 64 bit system .
You can download 64 bit version from software manufecturer web sites.
If it is driver disk then you need driver which supports 64 bit system.
Let me know if you need further assistance,.
Thanks for using FixYa.

    hi there, thanks for the quick reply, yes I was thinking that is what i would have to do, as far as i can see it's licenced to 4th dimension interactive, but can't see anywhere on their site to download drivers or anything like that? might be just as easy to buy latest cd-rom ya? :)

  • If it is not available on internet then you have option for purchase it from nearest computer shop.

I have a 3 dongle hardware is zte i have windows vista and everytime i put the mobile dongle in it says e:\ win32 not a valid application help!!!! please


Hi leigh_Hall86,

It seems that you're running a 32 bit version of the software on a 64 bit operating system. Or the driver is not longer supported by modern Operating systems. To fix this issue try finding and installing the right driver.

Hope this helped

Windows not start.They say: Reinstall <Windows root>System32/hal.dll.Where can I find this disc?


hi,
HAL.DLL stands for Hardware Abstraction Layer.
It is a Dynamic Link Library that connects to Kernal and Hence your Harware can talk to the software.

The File is available in the installer Disk with some similar name as Hal_ or Hall_.
But Honestly saying, try a safe mode to get to the desktop. Recover as max data possible from your desktop amd documents or my documents to a simple folder saved on a thumbdrive.

Repair the OS.
and check for the stability for say a week. if everything comes back to normal. Its good. else contact me .

Write a comment and vote me to keep in touch!
Bye for now.

Unfortunately, you may be out of luck. :( The newer 64-bit operating systems have trouble running the older programs that were designed for 32 or 16-bit platforms. You can try this however: open control panel, click on 'Programs', then click on 'Use an older program with this version of windows', follow the prompts and be sure to choose "I want to use the program in the CD drive". Good luck!

I am trying to install windows service pack 1. I keep getting an error code: 0x00F0826. Can you tell me what this means and how to fix it? I am running windows vista basic. 32-bit. Thanks.


if there error appeared while windows copying files then disc OS or the DVD ROM might be faulty. Try to test first the ODD if it is faulty. Use the drivers and utilities cd from dell to test the DVD ROM. If DVD ROM reads fine the drivers disc then try the OS disc to a different computer if it can load vista files. if not the OS disc has the problem. If no issues with OS disc and DVD Rom then it might be the HDD.
