You forgot to mention what program this is, and since you mentioned ValueSoft, it could be anything from the 18 Wheels of Steel Line to Crash Day to Midnight Outlaw to Sprint Cars, Just to name a few.
I am assuming you have nhra drag racing top fuel thunder.
You might want to try setting up the game to run in a simulated xp environment, but this is only at best 50% successful. It's listed in windows 7 as "run in windows xp mode." Also you may not have this option in windows 7, if you don't, you can download it here.
To do this you have to right click the program's link, and then navigate through the menu. (Image below for example.)

If this didn't work...
One thing you might want to try if you are feeling up to a little Operating system work is to find and install as a secondary os, ubuntu.
Then after ubuntu is installed, install wine 1.2.
This is not as easy as i make it sound, so if you are a computer novice, or are leary of doing this then i would not suggest this method.
Wine 1.2 has had an exceptional track record for running other valuesoft games, i am in particular talking about 18 weels of steel.
Ubuntu is available here.
Wine is available via the Synaptic Package Manager, which in turn is available in Ubuntu by holding alt and pressing f2, then typing "gksu synaptic" (minus the quotes) and then entering your password.

Mastercook 9.0 shuts down when I try to save in categories. help

It's due to a new security patch that Microsoft did. Go to the ValueSoft website for the patch:

You have to download the patch, unzip it into the MasterCook 'program' folder, then launch MasterCook. If you put the patch into the wrong spot (I initially put it just into the MasterCook folder_ it doesn't work, but you can drag and drop it into the right spot.

How to solve ploblem it's error number 0xe0000227 realtek

here goes amed

There is really only 1 way to install the Realtek HD Audio drivers properly. No matter what all other forums say. Service Pack 3 is the main culprit as the drivers see that its above SP2 and dont install. I personally face this situation and was really distressed because it looked like either i will have to reinstall Windows Xp or have my new supercool and super monster computer without sound. Imagine having a monster PC with a motherboard with HD Audio and your driver doesnt install.
Both scenarios were something which i would never have approved of. Anyway so i Googled. I got 10s of solutions but most didnt work. Only 1 worked and i will put it here hoping that Google dear will catch it and people who face this problem installing the Realtek HD Audio 0xE000027.
  1. First Step is to make sure all instances Realtek Audio and its associative softwares are uninstalled from add remove programs and device manager. This includes Intel High Definition audio.
  2. On your PC change the CSDVersion registry key to Windows XP SP2:
    HKLM\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\Windows\CSDVersion value=200
This problem arises as the patch thinks that SP3 includes a better version of the patch itself and hence doesn’t install itself.
3. Download the latest drivers from the Intel website, navigate to the KB888111 patch.
4. But before installing the patch, goto your device manager and disable the UAA. Now uninstall the UAA.
5. Install your patch now.
6. Install the Realtek drivers now and things should work.
7. Change the SP version to 300 again.
If it didnt work, try once again. Hopefully Error 0xE000027 is fixed now.

I have a relatively new Toshiba which has windows vista. I've installed Print workshop 2008 and everytime I try to add a new sheet to create a book for a scrap book I receive An unhandled exception has...

Hate to say it, because I use Vista myself, but it seems that the program "Print Worshop 2008" not really that compatible with Vista...even though they claim that it will work fine. Just another compatibility bug within the two programs. Try first updating your system with all patches, and service packs, or download 2009 version of Print Workshop. I would also try contacting Valusoft.( Ask them to send you the newest version (they should send it to you for free if you bought the older version and it is not working)

Wanting to upgrade old Mastercook program to meld to new computer

ValuSoft says that MasterCook 9.0 is only supported in Windows 98-XP. Specifically not Vista compatible. What's wrong with these people? I have Vista and didn't realize until tonight that some of MasterCook doesn't work right. So, buy XP.
