How can I get the disc to play on a windows vista 7 hp computer

There are a couple ways you can do it , first try " Windows XP Mode for Windows 7 " , this will link you to Microsoft's Direct Download Page , once you have it downloaded , install it & reboot your pc . You should then be able to install the disc in the virtual xp enviroment . Another option is trying the built in compatibility mode , place the disc in the pc , open the disc's main folder using windows explorer . Then right click on the executable file ( normally named setup.exe ) select properties from the drop down menu , click the compatibility tab , select run in " windows xp sp2 " mode & check the box at the bottom " run as adminstrator " . If you are unable to install it after trying both of these methods leave me a message here with a email adress or instant messenger id so I can contact you directly .

Can't find setup.exe

The term "setup.exe" is like trying to find Untitled.doc.
here's a example: I'm trying to look for my "essay". It's vague and doesn't really tell you what type of essay it is, nor the name.

Setup.exe might have been renamed from a real file name.
Or it is file names for some viruses so people end up opening the .exe to see what it is.

Print artist platinum 22 does not want to install on our new computer with windows 7, is there a patch or some drivers that need to be installed?

Hi there,

Try launching the program in compatibility mode. If this is a disc you're trying to install from, click on Start, goto Computer, go into your DVD Drive, right-click the Setup's EXE file, then Troubleshoot Compatibility.
If this is just a Setup EXE file you are trying to load on your computer you can do the same. Just right-click and select Troubleshoot Compatibility.
When you're presented with a list of options, select "This program worked in an earlier version of Windows", then hit Next. Just follow the prompts and then try installing it again.

I am installing Quickbooks Pro 2005 on my Windows 7 computer. I got past the flash error but encountered a fatal error when trying to run quickbooks. Any fixes?

Try this:
  1. Open the Program Compatibility troubleshooter by clicking the Start button 4f6cbd09-148c-4dd8-b1f2-48f232a2fd33.jpg, and then clicking Control Panel. In the search box, type troubleshooter, and then clickTroubleshooting. Under Programs, click Run programs made for previous versions of Windows.

  2. Follow the instructions in the troubleshooter.

If you cannot install a program, insert the installation disc for the program and, using the troubleshooter, browse to the program's setup file, usually called Setup.exe, Install.exe, or something similar. The troubleshooter is not designed to work on programs that have an .msi file name extension.

Titans age of mythology expansion disc will not

You need to know that your system is up to running the software, the requirements should be included on the game. Sorry but I can't give better information as I don't have that game.

Screen display problems when running Adventures in Typing

I bought this for my daughters back in 2000. Now I find my mother wants to become a silver surfer and she would like to learn how to type letters. I tried using Adventures in typing on her laptop and saw that there were compatability issues. After a lot fo experimneting I found asloution that works every time and is as simple as can be. this is what I did (and printed out for my Mum:-)

Hi Mum :-)
Video problems with Adventures in typing with Timone and Poomba

There are compatibility issues with Windows Vista and this program

To overcome these problems we need to force windows Vista to use an
older Video format (from the days when the program was first published).

A short cut has been created and placed on your desktop.
The compatibility (properties) on the short cut have been set to –
  • Windows 95
  • 256 colours
  • 640 x 480

To create the short cut –
Place the CD-rom in the Disc bay and hold down the Shift key while the the CD-rom boots up. This prevents Autorun.
Now use Windows Explorer to look at the files and folders on the CD-rom.
Look for the Setup.exe file.
Right click on it to create a short cut that will be placed on your desktop.
Go to the short cut and right click on it to select the properties.
Now change the compatibility to the settings mentioned above.
Remove the CD-rom from the disc bay.

This is how to use the program Adventures in typing with Timone and Poomba on a computer running Windows Vista

  1. Do not put the CD-rom in the computer until you are asked
  2. Indentify the shortcut/icon on your desktop to start the program
    Click on this shortcut/icon
  3. When the computer asks for the CD-rom, place it in the disc bay and wait for the program to start.
  4. Use the program as normal.
  5. To quit the program so that it saves the progress you have made – use the QUIT symbol in the program’s screen
  6. When the program has shut-down, remove the CD-rom from the disc bay
Note that steps 1 through to 7 have to be done every time the program is started and stopped.

You will not have to do anything to put settings back to where they should be – Windows Vista will do that automatically.

This is how to stop any program if you are having problems and can not see how to stop it.
  1. Press the following two keys together Ctrl Alt
  2. While holding those two keys down, press a third key – the Delete key
  3. A menu will pop up.
    Click once on the Task Manager option
  4. A new window will open with a list of the programs that are running on your computer. Click once on the program that is causing the problem.
  5. At the bottom of the new window click on End Task
  6. The program that was causing the problem will be shut down for you.
Note that using this method is a sort of emergency stop so it will not save any new work you have done on the program/file.
