I Love Spelling Install Problems

I have tried to load DK Multimedia's "I love spelling" CD ROM on 3 different PC's ( 2 XP & one Vista) on the auto install process each time the programme fails to launch saying "The sound software has not been properly installed or is disabled" - it then forces me to quit the programme.

How do I source and load up the necessary drivers? I am guessing that this is the problem - your advice on this approach or any other you can suggest would be most appreciated.

Regards

Rob Staples

Hey rob

with respect to other experts who posted,

the problem indicates that the sound drivers needs to be re-installed and configured so that the software you are trying to install will then work.

for you to know that the sound is working for those computers, have you tried playing some music on it?

if those computers are having no problems playing music and you actually hear them fine, the problem may not be on those computers now and the problem may be with the CD ROM. because you already tried it on 3 different computers and all has the same problem.

what you want to do is look for a replacement for that CDROM you have there and hopefully this will solve your problem.



thanks for using fixya.

It clearly shows that the driver for your computer is not installed. OR this software may require support of a sound software as well EX Sound Blaster.

Make sure that the sound otherwise is working fine on the computer

    Also check as you might need to have a mic plugged in as well while installing the software.

I have an older version of the guide and cannot install it on Vista


The problem with upgraded operating systems and software is the software has compatibility issues.
The only solution short of upgrading your software is to try using windows compatibility mode.
Assuming this program is auto run when the cd is inserted. exit installation.if program previously installed go to control panel-programs and features and remove; If not previously installed, with the cd inserted go to your cd/dvd rom drive in my computer, Usually D drive possibly E drive. Do a RIGHT click and choose explore. Once this has opened, once again right click on Setup.exe and go to properties.
Once there go to tab at top that says compatability and click it.
Check the box that says run this program in (drop Box) and select 98/ME. Apply changes and run setup.
Good luck and should work

Can I foramt Vista Partitions using xp cd?


Yes, Insert the Dell XP disc, and when your computer first stars, in the right hand corner there should be setup and boot devices. Choose boot devices and run off the disc. After that, there will be an option to Format All your drives, (even some you might not know about :P). From there you can install XP onto your laptop.
