    on the same hard drive in the same folder there is some of the setup files that actually works and the icons is perfect but most of them does not work, the thing is the ones that does not work is the ones that i previously installed on either my laptop or on the Pc. I don't know if you can maybe use some setup files only once especially when it runs from a drive were is can be changed by windows during the setup to prevent you from using it agene on another system, because the ones that is on cd works every time on any system and i think its maybe because it can not be changed on the cd by windows. I'm a bit confused with all of this as i never had this problem before this is the first time.

Then your setup files is attacked by virus try installing some good antivirus software i would sujjest kaspersky u will get a trial version pack in kaspersky official website it will have all the features of full versiion but it can be used for 30 days install it and scan those setup files then it will disinfect the viruses and your setup files works after that if the antivirus does not specify any virus then try installing some other software from some cd other than external hard disc then if the same problempersists then there is a problem with operating system if the setup goes on cool then your external drive setup files might be corrupted which cannot be used further try these tests n notify me the results if uyour problem is stil not diognised

Hi,

You can follow the following steps to have the sound enabled in Quicken 2011.

  1. Ensure your Quicken program has been updated to the latest release.
  2. From the Quicken Edit menu, choose Preferences, and then choose Quicken Program.
  3. Select Setup, and then select the Turn on Quicken sounds checkbox, and then click OK.
  4. If the issue persists, make sure that your speakers have not been muted and that the sound volume is correct (refer to your operating system's Help for instructions).
    Note:
    Quicken sounds will only be available if logged in using the same user profile that was used to install Quicken.
  5. If Quicken is unable to produce sounds despite following the above instructions, Reinstall quicken in selective startup.

Note: This process requires you to restart your computer.
Restart your computer in Selective Startup Mode, and then install Quicken.
To restart the computer in Selective Startup mode:
  1. Click the Microsoft Windows Start button and select Run.
  2. In the Open field, enter MSCONFIG, and then click OK.
  3. On the General tab, select Selective Startup, and then select Load System Services (ensuring all others are unchecked).
  4. On the Services tab, in the area below the scrolling list, be sure that Hide all Microsoft Services is not selected.
  5. Click Disable all to clear all selected services.
  6. Select Windows installer, and then click OK.
  7. When prompted, click Restart.
  8. When your computer restarts, run the Quicken installation from the CD-ROM.
    When you place the Quicken installation CD-ROM in your CD-ROM drive, the Quicken installation should start automatically. If it does not, you can start it manually:
    1. Close all open applications.
    2. Click the Microsoft Windows Start button and select Run.
    3. In the Open field, enter D:\INSTALL.EXE, where D is the name of your CD-ROM drive.
    4. Click OK, and then follow the on-screen instructions.
After the installation process completes, return your system to its previous configuration:
  1. Click the Microsoft Windows Start button and select Run.
  2. In the Open field, enter MSCONFIG, and then click OK.
  3. On the General tab, select Normal Startup.
  4. Click OK, and then click Restart.
the installation is not successful, try installing from your hard disk. For instructions see below.

Copying Quicken to your hard drive and installing it from there resolves many of the issues that can occur during installation.
  1. Right-click on your desktop and select New > Folder. This creates a folder named New Folder on the desktop.
  2. Place the Quicken CD-ROM in your computer's CD-ROM drive. If you are prompted to install Quicken, click No or Cancel.
  3. Click the Microsoft® Windows® Start button and select My Computer.
  4. Right click the CD-ROM drive with the Quicken CD and select Copy.
  5. Open the New Folder created in step 1.
  6. Select the Edit menu and select Paste. This copies the contents of the Quicken program from the CD-ROM to the hard disk. When the copy is complete, the DISK1 and Custom folders appear in the New Folder window.
  7. Double-click the DISK1 folder to display the contents, and then double-click Setup.exe.
  8. Follow the on-screen instructions.

My Art Explosion Greeting Card Deluxe Factory 2 software will not work on my Toshiba Satellite A200 laptop. I am using Windows Vista. Please can you advise?


Unfortunately the Windows OS has changed significantly since that software was released. Nova Developement now has the Greeting Card Factory Deluxe version 8 for XP/Vista/7.

If you have the 64-bit Vista, you may not be able to get the old software to work and need the upgrade or a virtual computer with an older Windows OS (see below). To check your OS version, click Start > Control Panel > System and Security > System .

You can try running the program in the compatibility mode - this will work best with software for XP not Win95-NT. Right click on the installer and select Properties. Go to the Compatibility tab and choose Run this program as compatible with (an older version of Windows). Click on the check box and use the drop-down menu to select the older OS. Save the change by clicking apply then close the window. Right click again on the installer and choose Run as Administrator.

If the program installs, do the same compatibility steps for the program's exe file itself. (You don't need to run as administrator though.)

Alternatively, you can run a dual boot or virtual computer with an older Windows OS. (Programs like Virtual PC, Parallels and VMWare let you run a virtual computer inside the Vista system with a computer that can handle virtualization.) Unfortunately, you usually need a licensed version of Windows to do this. (Win7 Pro and Ultimate let you do this free with Virtual PC and XP mode.) Then install the software normally in the virtual computer or when booted into the older version of Windows. File transfer can be tricky with the virtual computer - you need to save files to external media (flash drive or optical disc). Printers can't be installed on both the real and virtual computer at the same time.

I hope this helps.

Can micro cookbook 5.0 be adapted to run in Win 7?


Use the compatibility mode for the program. This will allow you to run it as if you had an older version of Windows. If it ran under Windows XP, this should work.

Right click on the icon and select Troubleshoot compatibility. The compatibility wizard will start and make a determination for your system.

I can only view some unlocked books from the CD. How can I get them all copied on my hard drive?


1. You can make an ISO image of the CD using programs MagicISO, ultraiso, PowerISO & many other imaging programs. You can then view the image file using a virtual drive.

2. You can "copy and paste" the files or folders you want from the CD to your Hard drive.

When I download Flipshare software for the first time I get a message reading That there is a problem with this installation package. A script required for this install to complete could not be run,...


try to check your hard disc for errors, you do it in this way ; Highlight your hard drive (normally it is C:), you find it in My Computer, right click on it and choose properties, select the second tab and choose "check this drive for errors", apply all the possibilities and press ok and restart the computer. Let the program run and then try again.

For be completely sure then you have to download the setup file again and reinstall it, you do it in this way : remove the software in Add and Remove programs in Control Panel, reboot the computer and install it again.

Then try to run Ccleaner,
Please see my article here on how do you use Ccleaner :

http://www.fixya.com/support/r3581476-how_to_use_ccleaner_to_keep_your_compute

Defragment you hard drive, you can use Defraggler here, that is better than windows own integrated :
http://www.piriform.com/defraggler
Portable (USB, no install) version you find here :
http://www.piriform.com/defraggler/download/portable

Now you have done all the possibilities, and your computer should be in good condition, but only one thing here, Your are Running onservice pack 2 !!??, you should update your machine at least to service pack 3, you find the updates in Internet explorer under the feature Tools (Windows Update), select it and follow the instructions on the screen, then choose quick search here and install the updates it find. You need to run it until Windows Update write "there is no more updates/ 0 updates".

One last thing, Is it windows xp 64 bit you are running or 32 bit ??, not all the programs are running under 64-bit version

Hope that helps
IF NOT then try to return here
Have a nice time over there

How To Copy Installed Microsoft Office 2007 As A Set Up File??


Hi,
There is no way to install your software on the other system unless you have the installation files. You can however make a ghost copy of your hard drive and copy a mirror image from one hard drive to another. There are many software packages available for making ghost copies of your hard drive, ie. Norton ghost.
Let me know if you need any further info on this.
Best wishes,
