If i doesn't work in Vista, then it doesn't work in Vista, which is one reason people have been hesitant to make the switch to Vista, that being that a lot of XP software wont run on Vista until the manufacturers make a version for Vista.

I purchased teh Instant Immersion Spanish, but CD takes over the whole desktop with no mimimize or x out. I can't seem to exit without a full logout on the laptop. Am I missiing something? Thank y


Hello,

Have your tried pressing on the escape button (ESC) in exiting? Or have you tried moving your mouse pointer to the top most portion of your computer's screen? Try moving the pointer the top right corner or top left corner. Something like a menu should pop out.

I hope this helps,

I want window vista BUT I DONT KNOW HOW CAN I DO THIS


Hi there !

So tell me, what do you want to do with your computer? Do your computer crash and need to reinstall your Windows Vista operating system? Or you want to upgrade your operating system from Windows XP to Windows Vista.

For reinstalling Windows Vista, is it the same procedure when reinstalling Windows XP and Windows 7. Here is the link on how to reinstall operating system http://www.fixya.com/support/r7410371-reinstall_windows_xp_or_installing_clean. For Windows Vista, here is the procedure on how to reinstall Windows Vista.

1. Just put the installer CD into the CDROM Drive and open your computer
.
2. If message appear to press any key to boot from CD. Press any key to go to Windows Set up.

3. From there, just follow the installation procedure and put CD key if prompted and it will install itself the whole process. It will reboot for 3 times and don't press anykey when this happen. it will be finished within 20 mins.

For upgrading from Windows XP to Windows Vista, remember that all your files and softwares will be remove except for the hardware drivers. But not all the hardware drivers will be 100% working because upgrading the operating system will make your drivers outdated or not compatible with Windows Vista. If some drivers not working, just install the hardware drivers compatible with Windows Vista.

Here is the procedure.

1. Do not put the Windows Vista installer CD yet into the CDROM drive.

2. Open your computer and let it run to Windows XP program until is is finished to load your Windows settings.

3. Now insert your Windows Vista installer CD to the CDROM drive, it will pop up the upgrade installation wizard and just choose the upgrade installation. It will run the upgrading installation and just follow the instruction and it will be finish with 20 mins.

I hope this will help you and thank you for using FixYa !

My computer says that the print shop deluxe version 20 is not compatable with vista.


Print shop deluxe version 20 is not designed to work on windows vista. it was designed to work on windows 98 up to windows xp only. Try using a version that is compatible with vista like version 23.

Installing Adobe Photo Deluxe 2.0 on Visat


You may need new software, you might want to look for it on the web. Is your Vista 32 bit or 64 bit version? If 32 bit, you might be able to run it in compatibility mode.

Adobe Photo Deluxe 2.0 will not work with Vista


yes
if your machine is 64-bit Vista, then you need to install Windows XP-64bit.
you can install Windows 32-bit on a 64-bit machine, it will work. just not as good. However, you can't install 64-bit OS on a 32-bit machine.
if the machine is 32-bit then you can install any type of OS you want, you can even install them as dual boot.

Adobe Photodeluxe 2.0 /VISTA


I just got Photo deluxe 2.0 to work on a new computer (bought Feb. 2010) with Windows 7, and I don’t even have a .setup file. This was a program that came with an HP years ago when they included a lot of software. I had simply dragged and dropped the program onto a CD. Since then I loaded and ran it on my XP without problem. Now with Windows 7 I got the ‘not enough RAM’ message and tried everything suggested on several blogs without luck. To fix the problem I right clicked on the .exe file and selected ‘properties’. Went to ‘compatibility’ then checked ‘run this program in compatibility mode for:’ and selected, ‘windows 98 / windows me’. Boy was I happy to see it up and running again. Hope this helps someone out there, this is a great program. I’ve used the newer versions and they are WAY too complicated for my usage.

Cannot run Fujifilm Software for FinePix with Windows Vista


1) If you right-click on the executable file, can you use the
"Compatibility" TAB to run it as an XP program?

2) Many XP device drivers will fail to install or execute properly
under windows VISTA, and I suspect it is the camera's USB
or Fire-wire (IEEE-1394) based device driver that is causing
the problem, not the main application.

Unfortunately there is NO easy solution for this,
except to get an upgraded software package (for Vista)
from the Camera Manufacturer.

3) There are also two possible work-around(s), but both require
some knowledge and software installation:

DUAL-BOOT
------------------
Install both Windows XP and Windows Vista on your
computer using two separate hard-drive partitions, and
a boot manager.

A partitioning tool like "Norton Partition Magic", formerly
"Power Quest" or "Acronis Tools" can be used to partition
the hard-drive non-distructively (your data is preserved):

a) Resize (shrink) the existing Windows partition.
b) Create a new partition for Windows XP (about 10 Gigs)
c) Install Windows XP-Pro onto the new partition,
d) Add both the XP and Vista partitions to the BOOT.INI
file on the boot drive.

Both windows XP and Vista do have multi-boot capability,
but the Windows XP boot manager may not recognize Vista,
in which case you may have to re-install or re-pair the Vista
installation. The Vista boot manager will recognize WinXP.


Running VISTA is generally a bad idea, because it is obscenely
slow and inefficient compared to XP, and because it is infected
Microsof't draconian and arrogant copy protection schemes,
known as DRM = Digital Rights Management.

Towards this end, Vista also insists that all installed multi-media
devices must be "Recording Industry" compliant and approved,
to make music and movie piracy more difficult. Many media
copying programs and CD-rippers will also refuse to run,
by design.

All this "Added Technology" is stealing your money, your
computer resources, your performance, and your right to
backup your media, at your expense, for the benefit of
the movie industry Mafia.

Use Vista only when you have to, boot to Windows XP for
most of your applications.


VIRTUAL MACHINE
-----------------------------
Both Microsoft and VM-ware (as well as others) make
a software product called a Virtual-PC, which allows you
to emulate multiple operating systems under windows,
including older windows, MAC and Linux.

VMWare is by far the best, the most reliable and the
most flexible, at about $200 US.

Adobe Photo Deluxe 2.0


Go into the PhotoDeluxe2.0 CD ROM file list, right click on setup.exe and then go to the compatability tab. Select Win 98/ME. Hit OK. Then double-click on setup.exe. Program should install on Vista. Then find setup.exe on your hard drive, and set the compatability to Windows 98/ME. Program runs, but says something about not being able to load 16-bit driver. Just cancel out of that popup window. Program works fine...for me...so far.
