I have Acer Laptop with Vista as OS, my problem is when ever I try to install new programme , Vista don;t allow to install it. I want to Install Window XP on this laptop, what will be the procedure to do it.
To install xp on a vista computer you must first download vista boot pro, next partition off a 10 gig or so partition and install xp to it. download and install vista boot pro on xp, dont use the force install option. after that use the repair manager on vista to rewright your boot sector and then use vista boot to select your default os. you are done!! the next time you boot up you will be asked what os you want to boot
My problems is Microsoft works. I thought when I bought this computer from Best Buy that it wasn't trial one. It keeps telling me to put the # in. I can't seem to find the # they one. I have used without the #. But it dosen't let me do everything with out it.

QuickBooks from 2001 will probably have serious compatibility issues unless your operating system is from 2001 as well.
If you have a new operating system (Windows Vista onwards) you may be able to install and run QB in compatibility mode. I have it running on Vista Professional.
Right click on the executable and select Run in Compatibility Mode and then select Windows XP from the options.
If you do not have the option to run in Compatibility Mode, you will need to update QuickBooks, or your OS or best of all, both.
If you have no luck running in CM, uninstall the program, reboot and then install the program from the disc by using the same compatibility technique. You will need to disable autorun if the program tries to install itself when you put the disc in the drive
If you can get the programme to install ( this was designed for windows 95-98) you might be able to get it to run in compatibility mode. I assume your laptop is running Vista? To do this, install the software ( might need to install "as administrator"),
Once installed, click on the programmes shortcut (right mouse click) and select "properties", click on the compatibillity tab and check the box "run this programme" select windows 98 or 95 and click apply
In my experience, when you're buying new laptop especially with Windows Vista Bundled (pre-installed), they will also install Microsoft Office 2007 Evaluation Version, which mean you have to supply activation code which also mean you have to buy it! (the license). Except the full version of Microsoft Office has been stated as "included" in your purchase.
If you don't want to bother to invest by buying Microsoft Office 2007, you can try to use "open office" which is free and support Microsoft office format also (http://www.openoffice.org/)
I think ur Vista is pirated or not cracked version. First of all install the full version of OS, after that problem will solved. There is no supporting version of office 2007 with vista, whenever any software is not supported with vista the problem is OS itself. so try to uninstall it. reinstall OS
Yes, Office Home and Student 2007 is compatible with your laptop. One question: are you trying to enter your activation product key into the installed version of Office 2007 trial that is on the laptop? It will not work, if you are.
You need to contact Microsoft, and they will help you with your problem. If I were you, I would start HERE.
More than likely unless you paid an additional fee at the time of purchase to have Microsoft Office then it is a trial version which is installed on your laptop. It may ,if it hasn't already, allow to use it 10-20 times before you can no longer use it fully (I say fully because it will allow you to view files but not alter them if you do not input the product key)
And yes you can let the trial expire and later purchase the full version. It would be easiest to purchase the product key direct from microsoft that way all you have to do is input the key when it asks for it...once you enter the product key you will have full access. This is because the full version is already installed on your computer..just waiting for you to input the product key.
P.S. there are other options such as open source software i.e. openoffice.org
