You should remove the game from the computer, to do this you need to restart the computer press F8,then use last known good configuration,if it do not solve the problem then restart and press F8 again and select safe mode, go to control panel use system restore to restore the computer to a date before the problem started.

Running windows vista service pack 2 but quicken 2014 won't open


One solution would be to run it pretending your Vista is XP. I have seen it done but as I have no Vista machine, I cannot tell you the steps. Search for running Vista in XP mode - once you have managed that, try installing the software.
The second solution would be to open a virtual machine on Vista and running that as an XP machine. Again, I have seen it done.

Try the links I have added below.

The problem I had was with Quickbooks, not Quicken, but the principle is the same and worth a try. Good luck.

Im trying to run nhra drag racing2 on windows vista but I get a black screen when trying to play game although i can hear game music in background. the task manager screen says that the game is not...


Since the game was released in 2002 it may have a few problems running on today's systems. I would first try running it in compatibility mode. Right click on the icon you use to launch the game and go to properties. From there click on the compatibility tab. Select the check box that says "Run this program in compatibility mode for" and then from the drop-down box select Windows XP (Service Pack 3). Then click Apply and OK. Then try launching the game again and see if it runs any better. If not, try it again but in compatibility mode for XP (Service Pack 2). Good luck!

Can windows 7 run GTA IV.


Hi,
Running GTA 4 on windows 7 should not be a problem. You just have to run the installer using compatibility mode. Right click on the "setup.exe" then choose Properties. Go to Compatibility tab and tick "run this program in compatibility mode for", choose windows xp sp 3. That should allow you to install GTA 4 on windows 7. Bear in mind that you have to install GfW Live and the C++ 2005 files seperately which can be found in the disk as well. More importantly, make sure that your computer meets the system requirements for the game.
Here it is: System Requirements
Minimum System Requirements
OS: Windows Vista - Service Pack 1 / XP - Service Pack 3 Processor: Intel Core 2 Duo 1.8Ghz, AMD Athlon X2 64 2.4Ghz Memory: 1.5GB, 16GB Free Hard Drive Space Video Card: 256MB NVIDIA 7900 / 256MB ATI X1900
Recommended System Requirements
OS: Windows Vista - Service Pack 1 / XP - Service Pack 3 Processor: Intel Core 2 Quad 2.4Ghz, AMD Phenom X3 2.1Ghz Memory: 2 GB (Windows XP) 2.5 GB (Windows Vista) 18 GB Free Hard Drive Space Video Card: 512MB NVIDIA 8600 / 512MB ATI 3870
After installing the game and you're not able to run it, Try running the main executable file of the game in compatibility mode as well.

Hope this helps.

Vista boots just Black screen with cursor even in safe mode


Yes, this is a known issue with Vista. You need to back-up your data, format your hard drive and re-install Vista from the beginning.
There is really no use trying to repair it: it is damaged.
After you re-install Vista, do not forget to install service packs from microsoft.com.

Booting is delay so much time


Try the following steps:

1. Tap "F8" key while computer is starting
2. Select "Safe Mode" from the startup options menu.
3. If the computer boots in safe mode, restart the computer and check if the problem still exists

This could happen if the BIOS update has created some changes which are not compatible with Windows Vista. Try updating the BIOS again.
