Adding a program exception

* When you add a program to the exception list, you enable the firewall to open ranges of ports that could change every time the program is run. To add a program exception, follow these steps:
* Use an administrator account to log on.
* Click Start, click Run, type wscui.cpl, and then click OK.
* In Windows Security Center, click Windows Firewall.
* On the Exceptions tab, click Add Program.
* In the list of programs, click the name of the program that you want to add, and then click OK. If the name of your program is not in the list of programs, click Browse to locate the program, and then click OK. Note If you do not know where the program is located, contact the program vendor to determine the program location.

For information about your hardware manufacturer, visit the following Web site:
http://support.microsoft.com/gp/vendors/en-us (http://support.microsoft.com/gp/vendors/en-us)
* Click OK.
* Test the program to verify that the firewall settings are correct.

I have a problem with World War 3 Black Gold. I've just installed it on my PC. I'm using Windows 7 Ultimate 64bit and the game won't start. I double click on the WW3.exe, small black screen...


I had the same issue and resolved it by downloading the World war 3 black gold 1.2 Patch - install this and you should be fine. I will still ask you to select a resolution but it will actually let you now.

I got mine from here

My software for singer futura machine does not install on either computer how can I fix the problem


The problem could be the operating software (Windows XP, Vista, 7), but it sounds most likely like a firewall problem. If you have a firewall program installed like the one that automatically comes on Windows 7, it doesn't allow much to be installed unless you tell it to allow it. Also, Windows 7 needs a patch to allow the Futura software to install and run (available at www.Futura-support.com). Download the patch. When you go to run it, be sure you're off the internet (right click on Windows Explorer icon that appears in the lower left corner of your screen and choose Close Window). Now left click on the Start icon in the lower left corner. Choose "Systems and Security" in the right column, then "Windows Firewall". On the lefthand side will be the second choice of "Turn Windows Firewall On or Off." You're only going to turn the Firewall off long enough to install the Patch and, YES IT IS SAFE! Once you've installed the patch, go immediately back in and turn your firewall back on.

If you use another firewall program (i.e., Norton, McAfee, Computer Associates), you'll have to refer to their Help on how to allow this to install, though their programs will probably ask if you want to install this software rather than just block it. Unless you set Windows 7 firewall to ask you, it just blocks everything.

I hope this is your problem.

Norton Firewall is delaying World of Warcraft patch


I would turn OFF the Norton Firewall and then download your patch. If you have a complete Norton Security System you might have to turn all of it off. Then when the patch is downloaded turn everything back on and do a virus scan to make sure nothing got in while things were turned off. Norton and McAfee are the 2 most annoying programs made. When I run my windows hard drive(s) I use free stuff and I haven't had any issues with them.

I cant down loader a online game world of woarcraft patch my fire wall stops it


What firewall do you have?
They all have options to configure. You could allow the patch utility access.
Another way to do this is by downloading the patch manually from Blizzard's site. (I hope you don't need a link to find it)

I hope this helps,
Yannick.
