Hi,

See if there's a Vista driver at the manufacturers website.

Old program won't run on new computer win XP but runs on others


> ran slow

Probably, having more RAM would make VMWARE run faster.

Check the manufacturer's web-site -- surely, they have a version which *DOES* work as a "native" application under Windows XP and Windows VIsta and Windows 7, i.e., no need for "compatibility settings".

Need vista software


vistas UAC is a pain sometimes.  one thing you may want to try is right click on the cd drive and choose "run as administrator" many times windows block even if your are the admin. another is the compatibility mode. try running it in compat for xp.

I am trying to move my Bookkeeper program to a new Vista Computer. I am getting a message that I am trying to run an older version of Bookkeeper with newer pogram. My old computer is XP and the new one...


Most programs written for Windows XP also work in this version of Windows, but some older programs might run poorly or not at all. If an older program doesn't run correctly, use the Program Compatibility Wizard to simulate the behavior of earlier versions of Windows.
• Open the Program Compatibility Wizard by clicking the Start button getopencontent.aspx?assetid=4f6cbd09-148c-4dd8-b1f2-48f232a2fd33&documentset=en-us&renderkey=xml, clicking Control Panel, clicking Programs, and then clicking Use an older program with this version of Windows.
NoteTo find out if your programs (or programs you plan to buy) are compatible with Windows Vista, go online to the Windows Vista Compatibility Center. This website contains a comprehensive list of programs, computers, and devices that have been tested to work with Windows Vista.

Hard drive driver problem


Hi,

It is possible that your hard drive is a SATA and therefore not readily readable by 98, XP but surprised not even by Vista. In any case, since you would still prefer to run XP (due to other software compatibility issues), pls press F6 when prompted by the XP installer. Additionally, you would need to have ready in a floppy the appropriate SATA drivers for your motherboard. They maybe downloaded from the motherboard manufacturer's website or possibly in the installer/driver CD that came with the PC.

Other than the above, it is also possible that you may have some issues with the availability of XP drivers for the other devices for that computer specially if it is branded.

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.

Thank you for using FixYa.

Vista isn't programmed to work with software for greeting cards, etc.


Im afraid this is only an online advice site.
You can install xp from the cd, you will then have to download the drivers for your devices. (make a list before you install).
Its really easy just read everything and double check what youre doing.
As for memory check compatibility, google your motherboard reference to see what standard it takes and then buy from someone like crucial. Installing it is easy, however if you had enough to run vista xp should be ok.
I cant help thinking it would be easier just to upgrade your printer, what model is it???? Check the makers website for vista drivers........
Where do you live, maybe we can find someone local to help you

Hi, Unfortunately Microsoft has blundered and not told anyone. Most older programs will not run in VISTA. I hope you burnt your download to a CD, you could use it at a later date when Microsoft finaly put VISTA right. At this time you only have two choices. Buy all new software that is VISTA compatable or go back to the good old faithful XP. Regards mistyman
