Question about The Learning Company Just Grandma and Me (CGM3744AE) for Mac, PC

1 Answer

Hi I have purchased Grandma and Me for my four-year old nephew but I can't get it to run. I installed it and I got a message saying that the product had installed successfully. When I click on the Grandma and Me icon, however, I get the following message: "Missing book outline file". I have tried changing the properties and running it in compatibility mode but that doesn't help. I have Windows Vista 32-bit (Service Pack 2). Please help

Several older Living Books wouldn't run in XP until right clicked and changed properties to force it to run in 640x480 and in 256 colors. I am getting the 'missing book outline file' when I try to copy and play the contents of Cat in the Hat cd to hard drive. My daughter has trouble changing out the CDs herself, so the ones that cannot be installed directly to and run from hard drive, instead of CD will not be used by her nearly as much because she won't ask for help, she'll try icon and if it doesn't work, will just move on to some other game. The Cat in the Hat will install a launcher and run from CD fine, it just prevents full install and run from hard drive with that 'missing book outline file' which seems as though it may be intended to prevent install and run from hard drive rather than cd. I have not yet found solution for that. I was able to install Grandma, Harry & Haunted House, Little Monster and Arthur's Pet Chase to hard drive of XP machine. On one or two of them, before I could get it to run from hard drive, I had to edit the .ini or config files and change the location from d:\ to c:\program files\livingbooks\...folder where .exe resides on hard drive. My 2 cents. Hope that helps someone else.

My grandaghter is 10 years old and has had a facebook acount for about 6 months. She just chats with her friends. Somehow her account was deleted by facebook and there saying someone hacked into it. ...


Grandma M, I suggest that you open a new account with anotgher email ID and add friends all over again.It can't be too difficult to get together all the friends of a 10 year old! Make sure the password is complex with numbers and letters with some capital letters. It's accounts with simple passwords that get hacked easy. Please tell your grandkid that she should ignore any emails supposedly from facebook asking her to login. This could be a phishing page trying to get her login and PW. She should login ONLY from the main page that is book marked.

Dell Latitude D610-Not detecting wireless networks.


Are you running the Dell Wireless Utility? Try stopping that service (go into Services, find the Dell program on the list, and Stop it, and then change the startup type to Manual) and start the Wireless Zero service (and change the startup type to Automatic).

When the Wireless Zero service is running, open your wireless networks list and see if you can see any networks (assuming there are some nearby to find). If you get a message that says something like "Wireless Zero is not configured to manage your network connections," go into the Advanced properties and put a check next to the box that says "Allow Wireless Zero to manage my wireless networks").

If you still can't see any wireless networks when there are some around, then maybe you do have a damaged antenna. It's probably not worth spending the money for parts and labor to have it repaired or replaced, especially if your computer is five years old.

What are your pressures and what freon are you using? Does the door(s) seal tight?

Just Grandma and Me CD I bought I can't run on Mac 10.5.6


Hi, Sorry to hear you are having trouble...
So listen, when a box says Mac System 7.0.1 or higher, it'll probably work on any system up to 8.6 without hitch.... but not much more than that..
I hope you did not pay much for this CD cause it's at least 16 years old.
Unfortunately it won't run on modern machine today. Try contacting the manufacturer to see if they have a newer version of the game.

Hi Bazildog,
the message reads 'there was a problem installing this hardware: 802.11.bg WLAN An error occurred during the installation of this device: the data is invalid'. I am then politely asked to click 'finish' and a litle box on the bottom left of the screen says that the install wizard had a problem installing this hardware and it may not work correctly.
Thanks for your time
