I have the CD-ROM for Castle Explorer, and I was trying to find a patch of some kind to allow it to be installed on a Windows 7 computer. Does that exist, and if so, where can I find it?

Exactly my problem. I paid $10.00 for the game, to play with my daughter - they wanted to charge me 16 (or more) to fix it. My fix is: Throw the damn thing in the trash, be more careful in the future about buying software from global software publishing - in fact, not buying their product again . . .

We have upgraded to Windows 7 and our castle explorer cd-roms no longer work. is there a newer edition of that wonderful software?


Avanquest have told me that these games simply will not run on newer OS's - I found this out after buying a DK game, thinking I could run it in compatibility mode, but it still did not work. Bottom line, they don't care - unless you have a machine somewhere running XP, there's not much you can do as they really don't seem to care once they have your money.

My software for singer futura machine does not install on either computer how can I fix the problem


The problem could be the operating software (Windows XP, Vista, 7), but it sounds most likely like a firewall problem. If you have a firewall program installed like the one that automatically comes on Windows 7, it doesn't allow much to be installed unless you tell it to allow it. Also, Windows 7 needs a patch to allow the Futura software to install and run (available at www.Futura-support.com). Download the patch. When you go to run it, be sure you're off the internet (right click on Windows Explorer icon that appears in the lower left corner of your screen and choose Close Window). Now left click on the Start icon in the lower left corner. Choose "Systems and Security" in the right column, then "Windows Firewall". On the lefthand side will be the second choice of "Turn Windows Firewall On or Off." You're only going to turn the Firewall off long enough to install the Patch and, YES IT IS SAFE! Once you've installed the patch, go immediately back in and turn your firewall back on.

If you use another firewall program (i.e., Norton, McAfee, Computer Associates), you'll have to refer to their Help on how to allow this to install, though their programs will probably ask if you want to install this software rather than just block it. Unless you set Windows 7 firewall to ask you, it just blocks everything.

I hope this is your problem.

Put the installation disc in to install game and my computer will not read the disc. We have windows 7. Is there a patch for the game that I can download to get the game to run?


The game should run fine on Windows 7 once you install it and then use this patch http://www.megaupload.com/?d=Q2WT4L09

Unrar using winrar and follow the text file for help.

Check the disk to make sure it is not scratched. Try running the setup program manually by browsing the disk. Either that or maybe there is an issue with your DVD ROM.

My computer crashed win7 theme error


try to boot from windows7 cd-rom, without installing it, choose fixing errors.

if impossible at first try,

press F2-button while system boot(before windows takes over),
enter bios-setup and change

BOOT DEVICE PRIORITY to

1st: CD/DVD
2nd: Hard disk/HDD
3rd: (whatsoever availabe)
.
.

please remember to exit BIOS saving changes!
(press Esc button after changing the above, confirm: ...Exit bios saving changes ? - Yes)

if you are asked now :

boot from cd-rom or hdd ?

choose cd-rom, let it work and wait.
in the following, do not reinstall windows 7
but choose a repair option,
leave the setup, remove cd/dvd etc from all drives and reboot, wait.

the regular windows screen should show up...
if this does not work, please ask s.o. who knows around with win 7 or think of downgrading from win7 to winxp professional.
as it is older but reliable, still supported and some win-pro's use it.
win 7 features are available but you'll need time to set up the whole system, incl. drivers etc.

this could work...if not ask me to post some links



now retry to boot from Windows 7 CD-ROM,
do not install, cjoose repa

all i can recommend: if you are a bit into computers, think of swapping from windows 7
