    I finally received a letter from WinZip with download sites. After chosing a couple of sites, I finally found the download that works! I don't know why so much of the software is so difficult to install on Vista. I still have to wait for a CD from Quicken to see if it will work. Flash Player is also another download that doesn't work. Thank you for your help. Susie43

But it isn't for Vista 64bit. not all win 32 apps will run on a 64 bit OS. when available you will have to download 64bit programs not 32bit. I'm not sure about Vista 64bit OS but in windows XP 64bit if you right click on the setup file (maybe under properties, i don't remember) you have an option to run the program in a compatibility mode. run it under the compatibility mode for XP or if it has the option 32bit. Hope that works for you

I installed a wierd bios on my compaq presario sr5710f desktop computer and am trying to reset the bios back to factory default. I have downloaded the bios setup file from hp's website and tried to...


Need more details on this situation. Was the Presario originally configured with Windows Vista Home Premium OS factory AND are you still running the original factory Windows Vista OS on it? I know that the original owner of my SR5710F had from the factory, Windows Vista Home Premium edition (32 bit). Compaq's website only shows 1 BIOS update available for this OS. If you try to run that executable file on any other version of Windows, you will get the error message that you described. I myself am working on being able to reflash the BIOS from a bootable CD/DVD/ or thumb drive. The executeable update to flash BIOS from Compaq's / HP's website indicates a version of 5.27. When I look at the CMOS memory, the screen reports a version of 5.31. How this happened in the life of this machine, I can only speculate. I do have the 3 dvd set which is supposed to re-image the hard drive to its factory released condition, but the load fails every time at the same place (3rd dvd, at 92% complete, with an error 1005). Compaq's / HP's web site does warn against flashing BIOS with any thing other than what the company certifies. I called Compaq tech support and their advice to me is to send in the motherboard. of which.. Im reluctant to do so as I am wanting to exhaust all the possible remedies before committing to buying a motherboard for upwards of 300.00 usd. Will stay in touch as things develop. 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 have one cd with windows vista home premium, and i can not activate him. what can i make ?


You have to have a valid product key to activate it. The product keys usually come packaged in the box with the retail CD. If you don't have the box, then sorry but you will have to either buy another copy or find some other means to obtain a valid vista home premium license key.

Hi I am Farah, and as I wanted to download java , it came thet" " is not valid win 32 application'. What shoudl I do? Thx


It is possible that you are attempting to install a 64-bit version of Java when you have a 32-bit operating system. Check your operating and confirm this. In Vista you can find this using Start > Control Panel > System. This is similar if you have Windows 7. Here is what it looks like:

pcjanitor.jpg
If after that you, you follow these instructions from Sun (Java) to locate and install the 32-bit version.


Error: x64.exe not a valid Win32 application This article applies to:
  • Platform(s): Windows 7, Vista, Windows XP, Windows 2000, Windows 2003
  • Browser(s): Internet Explorer, Firefox, Mozilla 1.4+
  • Java version(s): 6.0
SYMPTOMS

While trying to install Java a user gets an error message similar to:
' ... x64.exe not a valid Win32 application'


CAUSE

The error message is a result of trying to install a 64-bit version of Java on a 32-bit operating system.
SOLUTION

User needs to install a 32-bit version of Java software, since a 64-bit version is not compatible with their 32-bit operating system.

Follow these steps to download 32-bit Java
  1. Go to Manual download
  2. Click Windows XP/Vista/2000/2003/2008 Online.
  3. The File Download dialog box appears.
  4. Choose the folder location.
  5. (Save the file to a known location on your computer, for example, to your desktop).
  6. Click Save.
  7. Close all applications including the browser.
  8. Double-click on the saved file icon to start the installation process.

Can't clean install.


If you have a system that requires the manufacturer's proprietary device drivers, you will most likely have to return the system to it's original configuration using the restore CD, and then upgrade. However, there's no guarantee Vista will even be able to use the device drivers of the original system configuration. After you restore your system, check the manufacturer's web site for new Vista drivers. Unfortunately, Vista drivers for older systems may not be available at all.
