Hi there i have a copy of My First Amazing World

Hi there i have a copy of My First Amazing World Explorer 2 which I am now trying to run on Vista. I keep getting this error message: [1058]: The sound decompression software has not been installed properly. Please run setup and try again. This program will now terminate. now I have already seen a couple of patches for this problem on this site but none of them seem to do any good and I think this may be because they are designed to fix it for the xp. Is there a patch that will work with vista? many Thanks supercali2

New computer, Windows vista does not accept our DK learning discs


Hello acdangerfield

I have checked on the DK Multimedia website, and these programs should be compatible with Vista.

One thing you can try is this:

1. Navigate your way to "My Computer" > "Local Disk (usually C:) > "Program Files" > and then the folder the program is stored in.

2. Right-click on the program launch icon and left-click on properties.

3. Click on the "Compatibility" tab.

4. Check the box that says "Run this program in compatibility mode for:"

5. Click on the arrow pointing down and select a previous version of Windows. I would recommend XP.

6. Click on "OK", and try to run the program again.

I hope this helps. If not, please don't hesitate to contact me.

Unsupported 16-bit application


You could try to run in compatibility mode by right clicking the program executable file and choosing properties, once that comes up look for a tab that says compatibility.

You may have to try different settings to get it to work. Win95 or 98 mode should. The display settings may help as well.
