Product constantly tries to install, but never finishes, was on computer when I purchased it, used. Do not have installation disc. How can I get rid of this, it will not uninstall.


Hi there!
If you want to get rid any Microsoft Software, just do as following:
-Click Start
-Control Panel
-Add/Remove Programs
-Look for Microsoft Office 200 Premium then click Uninstall next to program name.
( I guest you are using not Windows 7 or Windows 8 MS Office 2000 premium is old. I think you are using XP. That is the way how to get to remove programs in XP)
Thanks for reading. hope this will help.

Do I need Windows XP Mode?
Windows 7 has several built-in tools to help with program compatibility and Windows XP programs should be installed directly on Windows 7. Windows XP Mode runs many older Windows XP productivity programs and that are not natively compatible with Windows 7, thus helping realize cost savings and reduce possible operational downtime by extending the life of existing software. Visit the Windows 7 Compatibility Center to find software that works with Windows 7.
http://www.microsoft.com/windows/compatibility/windows-7/en-us/default.aspx

It's the best of both worlds: The new Windows XP Mode lets you run older Windows XP business software right on your Windows 7 desktop.

Designed primarily with small- and medium-sized businesses in mind, Windows XP Mode comes as a separate download and works only with Windows 7 Professional, Ultimate, and Enterprise. Windows XP Mode also requires virtualization software such as Windows Virtual PC. Both are available free on the Microsoft website.

Unique customer Registration for MYOB Plus 11 I used MYOB 7 for years, and it worked all the way up to Windows 7 - now it won't even start. Its time to leave. I have a copy of MYOB Plus 11 that seems to...


Or, just get a version of windows 7 (look for "Windows Anytime Upgrade" on your computer) that can run a virtual XP machine (Pro or Ultimate versions), then download and install the virtual PC hyper-viser kernal and the XP Mode virtual machine.

Next, install your old copy of MYOB 7 into the XP mode virtual machine, copy your data files, and it should work....

EXPLANATION OF "WHY": MYOB 7 was actually meant to run on windows 95/98 machines, and this wasn't a problem in XP, because it could run a program that would basically emulate all of the win95/95 API's, under which MYOB 7 could run. Starting with windows vista, those old API's and emulation programs were basically tossed. Running the program under a virtual XP machine will give your old programs, like MYOB 7, access to those old API's. BTW, once the program is installed, it should auto register with windows 7. After which it will run in the win 7 interface almost as if it were a native program (will take longer to load as it has to load XP OS too).

One note, any custom forms (invoices, etc) may not work after copying them to the new installation of MYOB. Change their file attributes from Read Only (uncheck that box from within the files' properties dialog, via windows file explorer).

Oh, you'll definitely want as much RAM in your computer as you can get in there. XP mode will take a minimum of 512MB, but it'll be slow unless you set it up for at least a gig of ram.

Trying to load office 2003, keep getting message, requires elevation


This feature can be seen in XP as well as Vista computers. if such error occurs in xp try making a new user account with administrator rights and then try to install office 2003. also check the services.msc from run window and be sure that the windows installer is started.
In case of vista try installing from administrator account and if this is not working create new user account with administrator rights. even if this gives the problem then User Account control (UAC) should be turned off. this will probably solve ur problem.

Cannot install from DVD disk. My "User Account Control" says, "Unidentified program wants access to your computer." Gives me the options of "Cancel" or "Allow". I click on "Allow" and nothing happens.


Start Vista's "Program Compatibility Wizard".
Tell it that you want to install a program that runs under Windows XP.
Point the wizard to the drive-letter of the DVD-drive.
It will install and run the software, "emulating" the Windows XP environment.

16 bit MS-Dos Subsystem Turbo C++ IDE The NTVDM CPU has encountered an illegal instruction cs:0000lp:flboop:of00640352 choose close to terminate the application


I too have a problem on my PC,when running the Turbo C programThe error message is:

16 bit MS Dos Sub system
turbo c++ IDE the NTVDM has encountered an illegal instruction.

At last i found the solution, and it is simple.
After installing your turboC follow the steps..
1) go to TC directory and open BIN.
2)In "BIN" folder you can find "tc.exe". Right click on "tc.exe" and click properties (and make sure that do not click on shortcut of TC.exe).
3)In properties there should be a tab called "screen", In that you will find "usage" option. There.. select "window" option instead of "full screen".
4) Then click "OK".
5) Now click "TC.exe".
6) It will open in window mode, if you want you can change full screen mode by pressing "ALT + Enter".

Thanks & Regards
