I'm trying to install a program but it is telling me it can't run, it requires run as. how do I fix this


This occurs when you are trying to install an older program on modern machines. Old DOS-based software can sometimes be run in a window, but may require much manual setup. Older Windows-based software may be restricted because the programmers, knowing the software would not run on Windows 95, let's say, had the software look for the Windows 98 identification. Unfortunately, while those programs may well run under Windows XP, since the program is only looking for Windows 98, it see this as in incompatible operating system. Therefore Microsoft gives you the ability to run these programs in a "run as" mode. You select which OS you wish the software to "see". So if your setup program won't run because of this issue, try this: Right click on the setup program icon, select the COMPATIBILITY Tab, and try using COMPATIBILITY Mode. Tinker with the setting and retry to load the program. Hopefully you have a good outcome. Of course the better solution is to get a version of the software that is updated and compatible with the current OS, but this is not always possible.

I have windows xp and bought a pc rom at charity shop recently but computer will not play it, it says the sound software is not installed properly or disabled. what can I do?


Look at the system requirements on the CDROM - I've found that bargain CDs are often made for older versions of Windows (like Windows 98, etc...) and may not work on more modern versions of Windows.

If that's the case and you really want to run the software, you could install an older Windows on a separate computer, or else on your main computer but inside a virtual machine (sandbox) using software like VMware or VirtualBox.

Can not load older software on new pc with windows 7


The software Broderbund 3D Home Architect Deluxe 5.0 might works with the earlier version of Windows and does not work with the latest version. Check out the system requirement for the software and its says its for windows 98, 2000 & Xp hence the updated drivers for the suite are not released hence it would not be able to install it on New windows version.

4. A full install of Windows 98 on a FAT16 drive requires 225 MB of free hard disk space, but may range from between 165 MB and 355 MB, depending on your computer configuration and that options that you choose to install.
5. A full install of Windows 98 on a FAT32 drive requires 175 MB of free hard disk space, but may range from between 140 MB and 255 MB, depending on your computer configuration and the options that you choose to install.

Can't download Itunes software required to Dell XP400 Windows 2007


If you have Windows 95/98/ME/2000, install Windows Installer 2.0

If you have XP or higher, install Windows Installer 3.1 - you might have had some computer geek friend uninstall Windows Installer 3.1, thinking they were "helping" you, or your computer never came with it in the first place.

Loading software caused hanging on startup


May be your windows 98 is damaged and need to be re-installed. Even if you reinstall windows 98, there are more chances of your getting your documents back. I meant to say that just reinstall and to not format. you may get your windows running again. You should have your windows 98 installed with DirectX 9.0C and internet explorer 6.
