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 a program written for an earlier version of Windows doesn't run correctly, use the Program Compatibility Wizard to change the compatibility settings for the program. To change settings for a program manually, use the individual program's Compatibility tab.
If changing the settings does not fix the problem, go to the program manufacturer's website to see if there is an update for the program.

How to Run the Program Compatibility Wizard 1. Open the Program Compatibility Wizard by clicking the Start button I am trying to install - 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.
2. Follow the instructions in the wizard.

If you cannot install a program, insert the installation disc for the program and, using the wizard, browse to the program's setup file, usually called Setup.exe, Install.exe, or something similar. The wizard is not designed to work on programs that have an .msi file name extension.
To change compatibility settings manually for a program, right-click the icon for the program, click Properties, and then click the Compatibility tab.

Windows vista recovery cd I created won't install on new hard drive


Which software did you use to create the recovery disk? Is the recovery disk a CD or DVD?

Just to recover a vista system from recovery DVDs would require at least two DVDs. Your files would be in addition to this so I would be very surprised if you have only a single disk containing both the operating system and all of your files.

A simple recovery disk would only be useful for restoring lost operating system files to a hard disk that had corrupted or deleted files. It would let you restore to a new blank disk.

If the disk only contains a backup of your data then you would need to first install an operating system (Vista or Windows 7) and then install the backup software you used to create the disk and then you could recover your data from the disk.

I wanted to wipe my entire hard drive on my old Dimension 8400 that contained windows xp on it and reinstall it with windows vista, which i have the cd for. however, when i did so, each time i try loading...


1. you will need to know 1st that the hard drive you are installing is compatible with the desktop.
2. Is the hard drive compatible with the new Operating system (VISTA).
3. Check to see if you have the hard drive properly inserted that is properly cabled and connected.This will render error in installation.
4. Make sure you are installing the Operating system correctly.
5. Some boot sectors become corrupt during a change in Operating system if the hard drive is not properly formatted.
6. Try formatting the hard drive again and re-installing.

My laptop E625-201G16Mi has windows Vista home basic, which is pre-installed so no disc. I need to wipe it and re-boot it, how can I do this?


One way to wipe out your computer is by Getting a Vista Disk or Operating system of your choice. It has to be a full installation disk. Try WIndows 7!!! I use it its great..When you install a new OS(operating System) it gives you the option to reformat your disk drive which in turn wipe out all your data and give your computer a fresh clean install..first things first..get a Valid Copy of Windows of your choice. I recommend WIndows 7 Professional.

Unable to load Roxio Creator 2009. Message says 'wizard was interrupted, your system has not been modified'. My operating system in Vista Home Premium.


During the installation of DirectX 9 portions of Creator 2009, the installation halts, it perhaps tries to roll back, gives an error....wizard was interrupted ... and cannot be completed.

Resolution
Open My Computer (or Computer for Vista users) from your Start menu.

Go to C: drive -> Windows folder -> System32 folder.

Look for a file called dsetup.dll in the System32 folder.

Rename the file to "dsetupOLD.dll" or delete the file.

Reinstall Creator 2009 and follow the on-screen instructions.

It helped some..

I can't get my system recovery disk to work so i can restore my computer to the orginal format


If your recovery CDs have failed you have some options

1. you can call the company who made your computer about a new set of restore discs

2. you can buy an operating system disc such as XP or vista

XP or Vista , Operating System Installation CD will setup the computer nicely , you may need drivers for certan things but not likely.


Malfunctioning restore CDs really **** me off

I just chunk em and load my XP pro disc

( multi machine volume license required if you wanna put it on multible computers )
( same with vista )

but in some cases you may find that XP pro will install on many machines just fine.


Thank you for using FixYa!

Maxtor IDE Hard Drive


You hard drive has drivers and was set to a different computer, thus enviroment. To make that hard drive work on your new computer - the Operating System will have to have a repair done to it - if you do a repair - you will not lose any docs or email, but, you will have to re-install programs to see the re-done Operating System, then you will have to load all the drivers that operate your new dell computer - if the new dell was not designed for XP and only vista - it will never read that Hard Drive till you install Vista on it.
