SOURCE: get script error message whenever you move the mouse

Is it an older game? Just for fun you could try Windows 98 compatibility mode. Right click whatever icon you use to launch the game, click the Compatibility tab up top. Then click the checkbox "Run this program in compatibility mode for:" try Windows 98. Secondly, you should uninstall the game, reboot, reinstall the game.

You should try to uninstall, and reinstall the game. If you are having trouble uninstalling, try this uninstallation program, Revo uninstaller, run this program to delete any game data.

Other wise, try and uninstall, or delete your game updates, and game mods you added.

Hope this helps.

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.

I have a 64 bit computer and I am trying to install Parsons Hebrew Tutor which is an 8 bit program. Is there anyway possible to do this?


What OS were you previously using with the program? This program ran well under Win98 but could run in Windows XP. This is for the version released in 1997. Some reviewers noted problems with the fonts, screen resolution and color attributes under XP.

I think the only way you might be able to run the program is in a second computer (physical, dual boot or virtual). What OS are you currently running? If you have Windows7 Pro or Ultimate, you can run a virtual XP for free. (If you have Home Premium, you can upgrade to Pro or Ultimate for a fee.) Download and install Virtual PC and XP mode from Microsoft. Install them in order. Then install the Hebrew Tutor on the XP computer. You may need to copy the fonts to the System font folder (either from the tutor disk or the folder that is installed with the Hebrew Tutor program)
To install a font, follow these steps in the XP system:
  1. Click Start, and then click Run.
  2. Type the following command, and then click OK: %windir%\fonts
  3. On the File menu, click Install New Font.
  4. In the Drives box, click the drive that contains the font that you want to add.
  5. In the Folders box, click the folder that contains the font that you want to add, and then click OK.
  6. In the List of fonts box, click the font that you want to add. To select more than one font at a time, press and hold the CTRL key while you select each font.
  7. Click to select the Copy Fonts To Fonts Folder check box. The new font is saved in the Windows\Fonts folder.
  8. Click OK.
(Other virtual computer programs are Parallels and VMWare.) All of the other options will require a licensed version of the older Windows OS. If you decide to run the program under Windows 98, you will not be able to use the XP mode. Instead you will need one of the other options I have listed.

I hope this helps.

(if you are running a UNIX or MAC OS, you can do something similar with a virtual computer. For UNIX try WINE (which runs many Windows programs). For a Mac, you will need a virtualization program and a licensed copy of Windows XP.)

I purchased Hebrew Tutor and cannot install it on my Windows7, 64-bit computer. Please help.


Unfortunately, the Hebrew Tutor from QuickVerse was written for older Windows OS versions. It supports: Windows 95, 98, ME, 2000, XP Home, XP Pro, or NT 4.0. The changes in the Windows OS over time has made the installer totally different and the program isn't signed for a 64-bit OS. http://www.quickverse.com/shopfiles/product_details.asp?ID=41011 has the support details.

There are two possible ways to work around the issue. The first is to try to install the program (and then run it) in the compatibility mode. This may work but often doesn't. Right click on the installer (from the CD's directory) and choose Properties. Then go to the Compatibility tab and chose Run this program as compatible with XP. Save and close the properties box. Then right click again on the installer and choose Run as Administrator. If it installs, repeat the compatibility process on the program itself.

The solution most likely to work is to use a computer with the compatible OS versions. This could be a physical second computer, a dual-boot machine or a virtual computer. If you have Windows 7 Pro or Ultimate, you can run the virtual computer with XP for free. Download and install Virtual PC and XP mode (in order) from Microsoft. For other setups, you will need a licensed version of the older Windows OS. Virtualization packages include Virtual PC, Parallels and VMWare. Then install the Hebrew tutor as you normally would to an XP computer. (Note: virtual computers do not share hardware with the real computer. You can only install a printer to one machine at a time. You can share files by saving them to external media (optical RW disc or flash drive for example).)

I hope this helps.

Windows 7 incompatibility


If you have Windows 7 Ultimate, it comes with a Windows XP mode that allows you to emulate windows xp. If you haven't already tried right clicking the exe or shortcut and clicking the compatibility tab and setting it to windows xp service pack 2 (not 3 for some strange reasons)

I cant' uninstall Disney's Timon and pumba Jungle Games


I'm not extremely good with compters but I do know 1 remedy...

Click:
Start Menu
Control Panel
Add/Remove

Choose the program you want to remove from your computer. It should automatically un-install the program. If that doesn't work you have malware or a virus or its a hard to remove game.

Take it to a computer repair shop and they will be able to remove it from your computer. It's not very cheap, but it might be your last option. :-(

Old program won't run on new computer win XP but runs on others

Probably, having more RAM would make VMWARE run faster.

Check the manufacturer's web-site -- surely, they have a version which *DOES* work as a "native" application under Windows XP and Windows VIsta and Windows 7, i.e., no need for "compatibility settings".
