Question about Global Software Publishing My Amazing Human Body 1.2 for PC, Mac

2 Answers

I own the DK Multimedia "My Amazing Human Body" CD, version for use with Windows 95. I am unable to use it with my Windows XP operating system. I understand that you might offer an upgrade patch that could fix the glitch! Is this true? Thanks, Christina

    I have reviewed your "solution" recommendations to my problem, and I remain unsatisfied...

    Can you tell me whether the Windows 95 version of the CD I have will work with a Windows 98 operating system? I have an old Windows 98 disk that I could install on an external hard drive if that could work. Also, when considering a manufacturing company upgrade, is there a difference between the version of the CD I own, which indicates "Windows 95 only," and the version of the CD I see for sale which is labeled Version "1.2" ?

    Thanks,

    Christina

    I understand. I must say, however, that when I agreed to pay $15 for your service, I expected that it would include the "fix" to my issue, not just advice for it. How do I go about requesting that I not be charged for this service, as I am not satisfied, based on what I expected? (It's nothing personal)

    Thanks,

    Christina

    I completely understand. I was trying to explain to you that I had not anticipated having to purchase anything from another entity beyond what the $15 fee for your service would provide. Your website claims that an expert can solve our problems, now! I took that literally, not figuratively.



    I am, nonetheless, taking your website's promise not to charge me if I'm not satisfied literally. If you would be so kind as to direct me on how to assure that I am not charged for your service, I would appreciate it.



    Thanks,

    Christina

In your case..the fix is to run the program in compatibility with windows 95..
Insert the disk ..and after that if it let's you install it is great ..Install it ..and after that click on the icon (right ) choose compatibility ..and in there tick the case that says "run this program in compatibility mode for : " and choose windows 95 ..
If it do not want to install it at all ..repeat the same thing with the execution icon on the disk ..
Insert the disk ..than in my computer folder..locate the cd icon ...click right on it ..select compatibility ..than tick same case...to run it as windows 95..and will work ..
In case the feature is not available cause the program is on disk and can not accept properties changes...click right on the icon of the cd ....choose explore... and it will reveal all that it has inside..
Copy all files in another folder on your hard disk ..in a location of your choice ..Than the properties will be able to be changed..and repeat the operation I says ..Locate the executable icon ...click right /properties//compatibility ..and select to run in compatibility with windows 95 ..and there will be no more issues..

Welcome to Fixya

I am afraid you cannot run this program on Windows XP. In general, Windows XP has a different file structure (based on the NT operating system) and different program requirements. This program is created to run on the Windows 95 file structure of Windows 95, 98 and ME and not the Windows NT file structure of Windows NT and 2000.

You may try the software upgrade that the software provider is offering. Please click here.

Thank you for using Fixya!

    Sorry for the "jargons". You mentioned to the problem that you are using windows XP. My answer is NO. You cannot use the program with windows XP since it is a different platform. Yes it will work, if you are going to install it to windows 98. Windows 95 and 98 are the same windows platform..

    I fully understand you Christina. We can fis this problem for as long as we have the right software with us and correct upgrade. Technology changes everyday and same with the softwares. It is not like the software you purchased 10 years ago will work with todays computers. Computers evolve and softwares should cope up with the evolution also. That is why there is a technology that we called upgrade or update. The link i gave you is the upgrade. You need to purchased the upgrade disk inorder for you to use the old software that usually work with the old windows 95. I do hope you understand the situation.

XP should be able to run it because they're backwards compatible with all Windows 98 software. Check your sound card in the Device Manager and verify the device and its' driver are installed. If not, re-install the driver for your sound card.

My copy of Amazing Human Body won't run on XP, and I can't find the patch. Could somebody help?


If you were able to install it, you may be able to go into the program's folder right click the exe, go into properties, and in one of the tabs there should be a run in 98/me/2000 compatibility mode, check that box, click apply and ok. If you can do that, the program should run properly.

That's all I can think of that might help.
