Make sure that no firewalls are running or atleast you're trusting your internal network. Sometimes you might have to create an account for the other user to connect to the printer locally and give them manage rights. make sure both computers are on the same workgroup so you don't have to play around with rights and security settings that way you could browse the machine via network neighborhood and add the printer easily.

Good luck

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.

I need a product key im poor cant afford 1 can anyone help me ? email is dodgy_350z@live.co.uk


If I understand you correctly, you are asking for someone who has REPLACED their Windows XP Home Edition with a newer OS to share their former product key. I recommend you repost your request with these parameters.

I have a caffee and there are 10 computers with a server , and shared through win xp share folder.... connected through a wired router... each system has a indudial log n through sify broad band I am stuck...


In addition to Ameerm advice be aware that some folders even though shared will not be available to other users as this is part of how XP Pro works.

The only way to properly access those would be via remote desktop which would allow you acess to any machine set up for that purpose.

XP Pro has remote desktop installed but you may need to enable it and add the remote user to the admin profiles on other machines also.

Instaling network printer from main computer


On the Vista computer, right click on printer, go to sharing tab, click on Additional Drivers button. On the next screen you need to select Windows XP.

This will ensure that whenever a print request is queued from any computer that runs on Windows XP, it will process the request on the Vista machine.

You should also try to ping the printer. You should also check if the computer is able to share files with Vista machine.

Try letting the Xp OS format the new HD. I am guessing you know already that the old HD has to be disconnected.

Crashing during Windows Setup


Check out any hardware that doesnot supports windows xp. remove that and reload the os. it works. or remove all the additional addon cards like modem, network card, printers etc., (just maintain only hard disk, cd rom and floppy drive)then install the os. once os installs add the components one by one to so that the os will detect one by one cheers!
