If the software was made to support Windows 95 and above, it wont hurt to try and see if Win Vista will accept and run the program properly. The worst thing that can happen is that the installation will not complete.

The software might be too old to run properly on Win Vista, or if it does allow it to install the graphics may seem really old and funny looking - but it won't hurt anything to try and find out.

Good luck!

I could not upgrade neither windows XP, Windows 7 of this Product Model: GT5662. Would you assits? Thanks.


Hello kelvinvu, according to the information that I gathered from this computer model, it has Windows Vista 32 bit home premium installed on it. Windows XP is an older operating system so you can't "upgrade" to it. You could however install a fresh copy (more likely completely erasing all your previous information on vista and data files) or you could upgrade to Windows 7. Since you are using "Windows Vista 32 bit home premium", you have to upgrade to "Windows 7 32 bit home premium" or better. So if you were trying to "upgrade" to Windows 7 Home Basic, it will not allow that since it considers that a downgrade in the Operating System. You should actually be able to pop in the Windows 7 Home Premium CD while vista is running and start the upgrade process pretty painlessly that way. Just access the CD and walk through the menus for upgrading Vista to Windows 7. As a reminder, you must use the 32 bit discs. If you try and use the 64 bit discs (a different operating system as far as windows is concerned) you will have to go through the same process of installing a new version of windows (not upgrade). I hope this has solved your specific problem kelvinvu, have a great day!

I suspect that win 7 doesn't support this software. I am not familiar with win 7 but apparently you can install programs in XP mode which may well help you in this case

Windows 7 Home Premium will not recognise the extension .ES$ which 'Expert - Personal Roots' applied to an old program which used Windows 95. Can W7 run such a program ?


No - the program is too old. But you can do something else: You can install a Virtual Machine program, like
http://www.microsoft.com/windows/virtual-pc/
in 7, in the virtual machine you can install Win95 , in it you can install the program Expert - Personal Roots and with it open your file and save it in another generic format.

I just bought Hallmark Card Studio Deluxe 2009 & I can't install it. I am using Windows Vista Home Premium. I put the CD in & nothing happens. Can you help?


Go to My computer and look for the name of your product attached to one of the drive letters. At this point double click the drive letter with left mouse button. This should start installation.

If that does not work right click and select setup from the list.

How to upgrade from Vista Basic to Vista Premium.


You need a Vista premium disk to upgrade to Vista premium.

Just instert the Vista premium disk and start the installation.

If installation does not start, you will need to boot from setup CD, sometimes you have to change the bios boot sequence in bios settings, to start the installation from CD.

Insert your Windows Vista Basic CD into the CD ROM drive and restart your computer.
