Unfortunately there is no way around it as the software is not compatible with vista and wasn't designed for vista, i had a similar old software installed fine with vista but this is not true for most of them
sorry

I can not install Learn to speack English Version 8.0 on windows 7


Try running the program in compatibility mode. Right click on the icon used to start it, go to compatibility and change it to Windows XP. If this doesn't work, the program is not capable of running in Windows 7 so you will need to downgrade Windows or upgrade to a newer version of the Learn to Speak English software.

I would like to run learn to speak english (setup file version 2.0.71.0) under Windows XP. How can I do that. Previously it was run under windows 95. TAhn you in advance


Hi, welcome to FixYa.

Windows XP provides such compatibility mode to run old program in Windows XP. Believe me, I've tried this and it works, in my case I installed my old game The Lost Mind of Dr Brain which developed for Windows 3.11 or Windows 95.

To do it, you just need to locate executable file of your program. Then right click on it, choose Properties. Then go to Compatibility tab, checked "Run this program in compatibility mode for:", then choose Windows 95. You may also need to thick the "Run in 256 color" and "Disable visual themes" check box.

I hope this can help you out. Thanks for visiting FixYa.

I can not install Learn to speak English Version 8.0 on windows 7


If a program cannot be run under Windows 7 because of compatibility issues you have to right click on the executable file that will start the installation and click Properties. Select Compatibility tab and check the Windows version you know the program worked with before. You can find more about this Compatibility issue on Microsoft website: http://windows.microsoft.com/en-AU/windows-vista/Make-older-programs-run-in-this-version-of-Windows
Also after you install the program you most likely will have to do the same for the application file.

What OS does your new computer have? What was your old OS? Unfortunately, install codes do change with OS versions and a program for a much older program will not run on a new OS (esp for Microsoft products). This program (in its English Windows version) was coded to run under Win95-WinXP; it probably can't run under Win7. You can try installing in the compatibility mode (for Windows - right click on the installer and select properties and the compatibility tab). However, this doesn't always work. It isn't a program listed in the Windows Compatibility Center for Vista or Win7 (although the Vista version is confused with its search results - 47 items found becomes 11).

Another option is to install an OS that will run the program as inside a Virtual PC program or as a dual-boot option. (Win7 Pro and Ultimate allows you to install XP mode free (a virtual XP computer after you download and install two programs from Microsoft).) Otherwise you will need a valid licensed copy of the OS you need.

I wish that I could be of more help.

It may not be compatible with XP. Look on the back of the case and check which OS it is for. Sometimes the websites that support these have a patch for when you upgrade. I have had this problem with some of my software every time I've upgraded Operating Systems.

Learn to Speak German version 8.0


First ensure you purchased the full version and not just the demo, in which many features are non operative, in that case it will be normal.
Most probably the disk is dirty, defective or scratched. If it is dirty you can wash the cd in cold water (no soap or cleaning products), and then dry well with a soft cloth, taking care not to leave hairs or wet spots before trying again.
