    Are you trying to use this product with Windows 7?
    Have you tried plugging the joystick into a USB port on your computer? If so, do any message boxes pop up when you do?

Microsoft is still working with the device manufacturer to confirm this product's compatibility with Windows 7.

Microsoft Sidewinder Force has no driver for Windows 7 provided by Microsoft.

This is unfortunate.....

Take care.

Ultimate Writing and Creativity Center isn't compatible with windows 7.

  1. You can run the software in compatibility mode. Read about that in the Windows 7 help file.
  2. If your copy Windows is authentic you may want to install Microsoft Virtual PC and XP Mode if they are still available on the Microsoft web site. Note that your hardware must be able to handle Virtualisation, and that feature is enabled in the BIOS.
  3. OR get a version that is compatible with Windows 7 32bits or Windows 7 64 bits (whichever you are running).
  4. OR install an OS that is compatible with your Writing The last suggestion is done in jest.

Is Windows 7 compatible with HPlaser jet 1020?

Yes it is compatible with Windows 7. According to Microsoft website, it should be compatible with both 32 bit and 64 bit. You can check it if you want from the list posted below.

Windows Hardware Compatibility List

If you are not sure if your system is 32 or 64 bit, check your system information utility (windows key +, then type msinfo32). If it says something about x86, it is 32 bits or if it says 64 then it is 64 bits. Drivers for both are available below for you to download.

Is it compatible with windows 7 and if not, what do I have to do to make it compatible?

Check your software Compatibility for windows 7, go to Windows 7 Compatibility Center at Microsoft.

If your version is not compatible you have to check the software site for any newer version which support the Win 7 OS.

You can try the compatibility mode in Win 7, but there is no guarantee it will work.

Hope it helps.

Hi I have just updated my laptop to win 7 but i,m old fashion and still use Frontpage 98 yep I now old hey is there anyway I can get this to run on windows 7 or am i up for a new version

Like you I use Windows 7, and can tell you instantly that some older Microsoft programs do not work with Win 7, whilst some other ones do. If you have Windows 7 Professional or Ultimate you can try running Frontpage in Administrator and Windows XP compatibility mode.

Windows 7 Professional and Ultimate instructions:

A. Right Click on the Program name if installed (Could also try with install too if not installed)
B. Click on 'Properties'
C. Select 'Compatibility Mode'
D. Try using the different 'Compatibility Modes'. I would try 'Windows XP Service Pack 1' first, if this does not work, try 'Windows 98'
E. Click 'Apply' then 'OK'

F. Right click on the program name that you selected compatibility mode for above, and select "Run as Administrator"
G. Follow any further instructions

If this does not work, then it will probably be cheaper to find a used newer version on a site like eBay. Note that Frontpage 2002 has Windows 7 issues too, so please check out the following links.

Good Luck
