Question about Microsoft Windows 98 for PC

1 Answer

Microsoft Works Calendar.

I have just upgraded to a new computer. It has XP Home Edition & Vista Home Premium. The OS is an AMD dual core with a 4200 Asus motherboard. On my old Pentium 4 computer,Alliance, ,in 2003, which had Window 2000, I had a MSworks calendar with lots of information going back to when I had Windows 98, on a previous computer.Having upgraded to 2000 I kept using MSWKScalendar . All stuff was put onto disk as backup before putting XP back on this new one computer. But now when I want to go into Calendar I can't access it. In Set up I get Calendar Notepad. In MSWKScal I have a box that comes up. "Calendar can't find one or more files it needs to run.Run the Calendar setup program again to install the missing files. If the Calendar still doesn't open run the Internet Explorer setup program to install the missing files." Is there any way I can get my Calender to open again.I would like to get all that information and put it onto another calendar. I know that I won't be able to run it on Vista. Thanks a lot Eleanor I hope that I have explained this problem properly

I hope you can do a quick update using windows setup CDs or windows update from your browser if you are connected to the internet. Mostly this should solve the issue. If not mail me.

What multimedia audio driver compatible for Windows Xp OS, AMD sempron 2200


what brand is the computer? because it depends on the system, if the audio card is integrated with the motherboard, or seperate, so if it is integrated you have to look into the mb, specs for driver, if it is not integrated , you need to check with the manufacturer site for driver.

32 bit program to 64 bit opperating system


From the Autocad webiste:
System Requirements AutoCAD® Civil and AutoCAD® Civil 3D® 2009 Recommended System Requirements Recommended configuration (excluding server components used with project management capabilities):
  • Intel® Pentium® 4 (3 GHz or higher); AMD Athlon™; multiple processors supported, dual-core supported
  • 32-bit only: Microsoft® Windows Vista® Ultimate/Business/Enterprise, Microsoft® Windows XP (SP2)
Note: Windows XP 64 and Windows Vista 64 are supported in 32-bit compatibility mode only.

Here's how you should be able to run it in compatibility mode:
1. Right click on the Autocad Icon in your start menu
2. click on Properties
3. click on the Compatibility tab at the top
4. check the box next to Compatibility Mode and select Vista 32 bit if it is given as an option.

I don't have Vista here, but that is how it works in XP and I did do a search and it appears to be the same in Vista.

Upgrading the OS Windows XP not possible


Upgrading from OS Windows XP:

you can upgrade from Windows XP to Windows Vista(ultimate, premium, home, business.......),
you have to buy a Windows Vista CD and install a fresh copy or format.

Some Minimum Requirements:

i) Min 2GB RAM or atleast 1GB RAM(if you have>1GB RAM installation of Windows Vista will not continue)

II) External Graphic Card. for some versions of Windows Vista(to run Aero Interface, special feature only   in some versions of Windows Vista)

NOTE:

"Windows Vista Upgrade Advisor" is a software from Microsoft which you can download from internet, this  can help you determine which features and edition of Windows Vista will run on your computer. 

 i.e., when u load this software on windows xp it will suggest which upgrade version of windows vista          will suit your system(based on you system configuration. or hardware components.) and then            you can install the upgraded version of windows xp(mostly windows vista home,.........)


Thanking You

I intalled windows vista on my laptop but i cant get any sound driver to work with it


I have an HP DV1150US, and just bought a Toshiba M305D, 64 bit dual core AMD laptop with Vista. You are actually "Downgrading" by going to Vista, your DV machine doesn't have the CPU power or memory (unless you spent several hundred dollars to bump up the RAM).   If you bought the software with a credit card, return it (they will say you can't, but make them "receive" it ) as defective (Vista is defective as it doesn't support tons of things that work in XP, there is no legitimate technical reason for this) and then arbitrate with your credit card company to get the charge for the software refunded. If everyone did this, then MicroSoft would not produce such incompatible software. The public has had the wool pulled over their eyes ... if you bought a toaster, and it made beautiful toast 39 out of 40 times ... and in 1 out of 40 times, the bread came out on fire ... you'd return it right?  Vista'=flaming bread about 3% of the time.
I have used literally dozens of OS in 30 years as a software professional, and I can say with confidence, that your problems with Vista are just beginning.  You may be happy with Vista and the tens upon tens of hours it takes to get productive again IF and only IF you are a serious Microsoft zealot.
Look at what millions of other users say about moving from XP to Vista.  Microsoft has a policy for Corporate customers only, that if they buy an Vista machine,  they have rights to change (really upgrade) to XP for free (look it up).   
If you stick with Vista, you are on a never ending MicroSoft treadmill to buy new hardware that works with your new OS, then be forced into another new operating system (MS will drop support for Vista and force you to Windows 7 faster than a hot potato)  when they refuse to support Vista read:http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Windows_7.
If you stick with Vista and have any significant investment in prior software ... you are going to have to replace a portion of it.  My 4 year old $600 Office XP Pro package for one ... doesn't work on Vista!!!
If you have to have Vista,  you can resurrect your XP OS and install Sun's FREE VirtualBox and run Vista as a "Guest Operating System" within XP !!!   Then you can "play" with Vista to your hearts content, and when you really need something to work (read: your hardware or your existing software), you can use the native XP.    Oh yeah ... you are going to need a new machine to do this, but you would need that for Vista anyway.   For $700 at BestBuy, you can get a Toshiba M305D with 2 Core 64 Bit AMD CPU, 4GB Ram and Vista Premium aldeady installed 160GB or so drive ... much less that it would cost you to upgrade your DV1000 for just the RAM and Drive.
