"Hardware Key" generally refers to a dongle or flash/thumb type drive as a security device...not a software key or serial #
hope this helps

How can I install my Quark 7 on my new Windows 7? All I get is 'QuarkXpress 7 requires that your computer is running Windows XP or Windows 2003. Help!

Start the Windows "Program Compatibility Wizard".
Tell it that you want to install a Windows XP application.
Tell it that the software to be installed is on a CD-ROM.

If you are facing such issue with the software from the starting itself than it might be the issue for hardware competebility i.e.

1)your RAM might not be as much as this software requires check out the hardware requirement of the software and than are you having the perfect hardwares for the software i.e make sure that you have the appropriate amount of RAM in your system.,

2) issue might be the software installation issue you can try after reinstalling the software but before that take the backup of the files so that it does not harm you in any sence,

3)issue might be a virus which is only affecting that file only. so scan it once. try these solution i am sire that one of these will work

I cant figure out what my adobe photoshop cs2 serial number is..ive searched anywhere but i cant find it.. can you help me??

Hello eureine_sant

I don't know where the serial number is located, but you can download an application called SIW (System Information for Windows), which can tell you what it is. Please follow these instructions:

1. Dowload SIW directly from here:

2. Run the .exe file and install the program.

3. Once installed, run the program.

4. Under the "Software" heading, click on "Licences". The application will now search your computer for all installed software. Once finished, look for Adobe Photoshop CS2, and next to it should be displayed the serial number.

You will notice that this application has also many other utilities regarding software, hardware and networking.

Hope this helps. If you require any further assistance, please don't hesitate to ask.

Can Avid Xpress Pro be installed on windows vista?

According to the manufacturer's spec, version 5.8 is not supported for Vista. It also requires a FireWire port ( 1394). The application key (dongle) is shipped in the box for legally obtained (first-buyer) software. If you didn't get the dongle, you will need to contact the manufacturer.

The software will not work without the key. (Personally, I avoid such software since dongles get lost or damaged.)

I wish that I could be of more help.

I am trying to use my DGI Cutting Plotter and when i try to start up the program Omega Cut Pro it comes up with a message to say 'Protection Failed, Please Check Your Dongle' I am unsure what this means...

Ok this means that to use this software you MUST have a licence and along with this you get a "Dongle" a device that plugs into either the Serial, Parallel or USB port, and has a "Code" in it, that is "Read" by the software. You simply cannot use it without this "Dongle" & Licence.

Software issues on my laptop

Hi! Normally you missed to think about system requirements while purchasing application software. Suppose if you are system is 32 bit operating and your application is 64 bit, then you are going to get words such as "doesn't support" / "not compatibility". please consider to go through your application manual along with laptop operating settings, Don't worry about laptop and application; have fine

Just got my printmaster 18 and the install/program will not run

Please make sure that the software (PrintMaster) is compatible with your current hardware requirements and that your Operating System (your windows) is also compatible with it. You can see these compatibility issues in your software Install Notes or Readme file or at the back of the CD cover which says: SYSTEM REQUIREMENTS

First check Device manager to see if their are any devices that are not working (or need a device driver). These will have an exclamation mark next to them. Reinstall the driver....if you don't have it point (you will understand this more as you follow the proc)
it at Microsoft.

Next try it again. If it still does not work then go to control panel and select add/remove hardware. Do the search and see if it is found. If so follow the instructions. If not point it at your cd (and maybe the folder titled drivers) - note try your application CD first and the Vista dvd second.

If this fails then we need to do some cleanup. Here is that drill....the why is explained at the end.

Step one...Uninstall the application using the windows add/remove programs and then remove any folders (but not your data) remaining that relate to it under program files in windows explorer.

Step two....Download and run Ccleaner (free) and run the registry portion (run other items at your leisure).

Step three...Do a scandisk in thorough mode or if not available (I reverted to XP so I forget if they left that in Vista or not) run disk defragmentor which will do it in the background.

Step four...If it still will not install and run, with the exception of doing something fancy in regedit, you have either software that is not going to work with vista...a design problem or you have some level of corruption in vista.

Given your issue is a bit old I won't go into these. Let me know if still not resovled. Tango....hope this helps.

Hi all frustrated fokes out there who still have problems installing and running this new product.
We bought this too for our dissabled daughter and have found it will not work on her pc , but will work on all the others in the house

What i did find was you must have net framework 1.1 installed and updated min for the software to install . other wise it will try to install the net framework 2.0 from the disk. the net framework 2.0 is an update from 1.1 and much software that requires net usage needs this base framework.

this is the spec of the pc it do work on ...and yer it well over the min requirement

System Information
Operating System: Windows XP Home Edition (5.1, Build 2600) Service Pack 2 (2600.xpsp_sp2_gdr.070227-2254)
Processor: AMD Athlon(tm) 64 X2 Dual Core Processor 4200+, MMX, 3DNow (2 CPUs), ~2.4GHz
Memory: 2046MB RAM
Page File: 392MB used, 3547MB available
Windows Dir: C:\WINDOWS
DirectX Version: DirectX 9.0c (4.09.0000.0904)

The pc it will not work on only has 256mb memory,and a 128mb graphics card. Buy the time windows boots up and all the other programs also are running there is not enought memory spare to even launch the system. So a min of 512mb installed is required on a xp system

Another point i found was when i inserted the usb windows did not register it so following the install instruction very carefully start to installing the software and when it says to insert the usb cable do so then .

When you do get it working , your keyboard and mouse will not function, only ctrl+Alt+del will to interrupt the program . The pen will be your mouse thought i'd better say that cos it fooled me at first ..

Hope this helps ...
