* cgriffinx1 * 2 months ago You can download the free VMWare player and install Windows XP on the Virtual Machine created in Windows 7. Then install the fi-4120c drivers on the WinXP Virtual Machine. Windows 7 passes through the scanner usb and the drivers work with it in XP (no drivers required in Win7, it just treats it as unknown usb device). I do this with no trouble using Paperport as my scan/file process in WinXP with the 4120c. Reply sorry, I tried it (paperport installed on win7 and driver in virtual Win XP), but paperport 11 doesnt recognize scanner.. any idea?

SOURCE: VMware virtual machine Ubuntu 8.0.4 and VOIP Linphone: no audio

What OS is the virtual machine running on? Also there is a flash bug that will not let go of the audio device until you have closed the browser. I assume that is not your problem, but it is aomething good to know anyway.

SOURCE: OCR problems for Brother MFC-8660DN with Vista 64bit

You are correct in that paperport 9 will not work on Vista and paperport 11 is the alternative. I called about a similar model and the guy at Brother told me that paperport 11 is included on an updated cd from brothermall.com for some models. It was only about $3 so you might want to check for your model. Hope this helps.

How do I add windows 7 to a dell xps 8700 that came with windows 8.1 using a separate hard drive? Is it possible?


No, it isn't possible doing it the way you want to. You can't have 2 operating systems running at the same time. When you start win 8.1, that OS is running, and installing Win 7 on an external SSD won't work while Win 8.1 is running. You can install VirtualBox for free and create a virtual machine to run Win 7 inside of Win 8. You can do the same with the free VMWare Player. You can also shell out some money for VMWare Workstation and create virtual machines that way. Another option is to create a dual boot machine on your Win 8.1 machine. That is out of the scope of this message right now. There are lots of tutorials on the web.

Is there any driver, program or software fix that will allow me to load my "Intel Create & Share Software on my Windows 7 Dell Inspiron 530?


The Intel Create & Share was written for Windows 2K and XP and not updated. The workaround is to use a computer (second machine, dual boot or virtual) with XP installed.

If you have Windows 7 Pro or Ultimate or update to one of those versions, you may be able to run a virtual XP computer for free. Download from Microsoft and install in order the Virtual PC program and the XP mode software. Install the Intel Create & Share program in XP mode as if it is your only OS. (Note: you can't have hardware installed on the virtual and real computer at the same time. To share files you will need to save them to external media (USB or optical disc).)

Other virtual computer programs are VMWare and Parallels. For the other options, you will need a licensed version of the older Windows OS.

I hope this helps.

Hi, I need driver for windows 7 I try install for xp and run like in xp but it is not working if you have any tip I will be thankfull


Hi marec2009
Unfortunately , you don't tell us what device is concerned with this compatibility problem .
If nothing works , uncluding troubleshooting in compatibility XP , the only way to get out of the issue is a workaround : installing a virtual version of XP on your machine but you can do it only under restricted conditions :
You are running Windows 7 Ultimate , or Professional or Entreprise :
you can download and install a free virtual version of Win XP from : http://www.microsoft.com/windows/virtual-pc/download.aspx
Other versions :
.If you have the W XP install disc , you can install a virtual version of W XP on your machine from http://www.vmware.com/products/player/
If you still have the install disc , you can also partition your primary and install W XP on the new partition from http://download.cnet.com/Partition-Wizard-Home-Edition/3000-2094_4-10962200.html.Back up your data first.

Best regards .

Hi , i cant install canon pc1230d in windows 7 computer. Thanks


There is no driver for your unit under Windows 7
Workaround :
If you are under Win 7 Ultimate or Pro or Enterprise , you can download and install a free virtual version of Win XP from : http://www.microsoft.com/windows/virtual-pc/download.aspx
This is the ultimate solution to ANY compatibility problem. You just use XP mode to do operate your device then go back to Win 7 in one clic where your modern processing software is.
Under other versions of Windows 7 , you need to have the XP install disc to install a virtual version with a third party software such as WmWare Player from

I have window 7 on isprition 15 but the umax astraq5600 scanner does not support


The only available driver for the umax astraq5000 scanner are Windows 98SE/ME/2000/XP. But If you really wanted to use your printer on windows 7 you can use a program like xp virtual machine or VMware. Just install this program and then install windows xp in your VMware and install your scanner. Download the VMware software from this link. Click the download latest version link and download it. Have a nice day.

East West Fron or Operational Art of War able to be played on Windows 7? Are any of these games out there updated?


I got talonsoft eastfront II to run on my windows 7 laptop by using two pieces of software. First I use vmware player and created a virtual machine with a winxp install. Second, I ripped the original game CD using alcohol. This creates an image that preserves the special formatting that is necessary because of the SafeDisc copy protection that is used in this talonsoft game. I mount this image using alcohol since my laptop does not have an optical drive. The vmware player sees the mounted image as a normal cd drive with the original game cd in it. I can install and play eastfront II in the win xp virtual machine. I installed the 1.02 patch. No other special settings were necessary. All features appear to work with this setup. The videos play, the unit viewer works (help files with transparency does not work in win 7 normally), background music and sfx are streamed off the virtual cd.

Can i install windows-xp on my laptop which is currently working on windows-7 and use both of them.


Hi,
Yes you can install windows xp in windows 7.
Windows XP Mode is a virtual PC image of Windows XP Service Pack 3 that could be run on Windows 7 Professional, Enterprise or Ultimate versions. Applications installed into Windows XP Mode could be run in Desktop Mode or Seamless Mode. In Seamless Mode, applications appear to run natively within Windows 7, but they are actually running inside the Windows XP virtual machine. Windows XP Mode might also provide additional integration that traditional Virtual PC images might not be giving. Applications installed on the Windows XP image could be exposed to the Windows 7 Start menu. Applications run in seamless mode is having automatic access to the Windows 7 known folders like Documents, Pictures, Desktop, Music, etc. Also the Cut-and-paste is enabled between native Windows 7 applications and those running in Windows XP Mode. Applications running in Windows XP Mode might also access your Windows 7 network connection and USB devices.

I have installed virtual pc in windows vista. in virtual pc i ave installed windows xp. in virtual pc my usb ports are not working


Virtual PC for Windows does not support USB devices (other than a mouse and keyboard ... which are not actually emulated via USB, but are simply "used" through the host) ... but just to confirm the "official" statement of this:
http://support.microsoft.com/kb/824511/en-us

Unfortunately, Microsoft did NOT add USB support in Virtual PC 2007 (a widely anticipated addition that simply didn't happen).

VMWare Server DOES support USB devices (through the host) with some exceptions. From the documentation: "... Modems and certain streaming data devices, such as speakers and Web cams, do not work properly." You may want to read the details of using USB devices with a VMWare virtual machine starting on page 232 here: http://www.vmware.com/pdf/server_vm_manual.pdf

You can download Virtual Server for free here (You'll need to register and request a free key ... a painless process): http://www.vmware.com/download/server/
