    My boss uses works 4.0 EVERYTHING he does is in works. I have been able to convert it but now can not! If he upgrades to Works 8.0 he will he still be able to change millions of files AND will it still be works? I think in 2000 works word processing files automaticallly became word files and he didn't like that so he just went back to the older works 4.0. Thanks

In order to use Works 4.0 files, they must first be converted using software that includes a text converter - Works 8.0 and several versions of Word include this. You can use 8.0, or use 8.0 to convert to that format, and then they would be usable in 9.0 as well. If you desire further detail, see here.

You can check to see if your hardware is capable of running Windows 8 by downloading the Windows 8 Upgrade Assistant. You need to be running XP Service Pack 3 for this to work. Click the link below to download the assistant:

How to fix a hanged/frozen/non responsive Pan Digital Novel E-Reader


Hello,

If your Pan Digital Novel Reader... does not respond or hangs, it means the unit/device has frozen. This is a software/OS (operating system) problem.

Usually, resetting should do the fix. To reset, push the hole at the back of the unit with paperclip and the unit will reset. But if you have reset the unit by pushing the small hole at the back with paperclip (which means reset) and that seems not to solve the problem, then it means the operating system of the unit is corrupt. This is a software problem and to fix this problem, you need to install the firmware for your unit.

Firmware helps to remove the corrupt software and re-install a new one. Your unit will be as new once this is done.

Upgrade via PC

This option is for Windows PC only at this time.
With this method, you must connect your pandigital novel to a PC and then run a downloader program which automatically downloads the firmware to your device.
1. On your computer, go to www.pandigital.net/downloads.
2. Choose the "Upgrade with Your PC" option.
3. When asked to Save or Run, select Run.
4. Follow the prompts in the Upgrader window to download the firmware into your device.
5. After the download is complete, turn your device off.
6. Press the Volume + key plus slide the power key on simultaneously for 5 seconds, and then release both.
7. Your device is upgraded and restarts automatically.
8. In the Language setup screen, tap Save with English selected (other languages will be available in future firmware upgrades).
9. In the Date/Time screen, if necessary, tap in the Time Zone, Date, and Time fields to set the correct time for your location. IMPORTANT: In order to connect with your Barnes & Noble online account, the Date and Time must be set correctly according to your location.
10. Tap Save.
11. The HOME screen is displayed.

Re-Upgrade

If you have previously performed a firmware upgrade to your device using one of the above methods, we recommend that you move the existing upgrade file into a different folder before performing another upgrade, which allows you to revert back to the existing version if desired.
1. Connect the device to your computer.
2. In a Windows Explorer or Finder window, create a new folder titled Firmware, and then copy the existing upgrade file into the Firmware folder. (The upgrade file is named similar to SYY_MM_DDK_PD_INX7E_ENG_6410POP.)
3. Perform the new upgrade using one of the methods above.
Revert back to Previous Version
1. Connect the device to your computer.
2. In a Windows Explorer or Finder window, delete the upgrade file from the root, and then copy the upgrade file from the Firmware folder back into the root of the device.
3. Turn your device off.
4. Press the Volume + key plus slide the power key on simultaneously for 5 seconds, and then release both.
5. Your device is upgraded again and restarts automatically.
6. Follow the prompts to re-set your language and date and time.

I hope you found the above helpful.

Regards.

I am loading up a new Dell computer with Windows 7 Pro, I have the upgrade for Office 2007 ( that I purchased) but only have upgrades since office 95. How can I load Office 2007 upgrade on this new...


Is the disk-drive from the old computer attached as a "slave" disk-drive on the new computer?
If so, then the "upgrade" utility should find the "qualifying" files, and allow the "upgrade" to proceed.

Is Office 95 listed as a "qualifying" product for the Office 2007 upgrade?
If so, then insert the CD-ROM for Office 95 when running the Office 2007 installer.
Or, insert the CD-ROM for the Office 2000/XP/2003 upgrade when requested.

I have dell inspiron/4000 and it is still in Microsoft Millenum, how can upgrade to Microsoft XP so that i can convert also to Microsoft 2003?


Thats no problem at all, you won't exactly be able to upgrade BUT you can still install into the same Dir, as existing installation. You most probably will NOT be able to keep all your settings unless you use the Setting transfer wizard first. I have include a link that will help you.

I'm trying to upgrade from 64-bit Vista to 64 bit Windows 7. When I run the installation disk, I'm getting the following error message, which appears to be contradictory in my opinion:...


I have seen this type of problem before, the only real way around it is to install a fresh copy of windows 7 not to upgrade, you will receive a message that asks you if you want to keep the previous windows in a folder called old windows, from there you will be able to access all your old files and programs, be aware though some programs may not work on windows 7, and you may need to have updated drivers for the systems peripherals. So when you run the windows 7 disk choose clean install and go from there. i hope this helps

Same as above really


Hi,
I have fixed my problem. I realised that the Microsoft Access Database DSN did not include the *.accdb driver. I deleted the existing DSN and created a new one. This allowed me to select the ODBC driver that worked for both file types.

I cameto realise that I was only having this problem on machines that have been upgraded to excel 2007 and not on machines with full virgin installations. On install both try to create the appropriate DSN but one with the same name already exists on the machines being upgraded and the creation fails.

I hope this helps others.

Route 66 Mobile 8 Windows Mobile - software update creates error


To upgrade, use the website version of Route 66 Sync rather than the version on the disk or the upgrade file from the website, both of which do not work. The website version works in conjunction with Microsoft ActiveSync.

Unable to install ms office 2007, upgrading from Office 2003


Hi,
please first uninstall all the existing versions of MS Office. Then try to clean temporary files, cache and registry using tools like cCleaner (freely availavle), then install MS Office.

if you want to install only MS Office 2007, no need to install MS office 2003 and upgrade. directly install MS Office 2007.

If you want to keep both, pleas install MS office 2003 first, then MS office 2007, please dont uograde it, rather select Keep both version.

Please make sure that you have admin permission before doing all this and your system is free from any virus.
Thanks
