Windows Activation (programs not compatible)

Q: Windows Activation (programs not compatible)

To start, I did a system reboot which completely wiped everything out. When I got my computer back up and running I attempted to reinstall all of my programs such as Office, Norton and my printer, however, I keep getting the same message with each program I attempt to install "this product is not compatible with this version of windows" paraphrased. I used my recovery disk to install, i've entered in the product key several times and it still will not work. attatched are screen shots of the messages I have been getting when trying to install programs. What can I do to get everything back up and running without having to do a full reboot again?

Preferred Solution: Windows Activation (programs not compatible)

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

Bought a new laptop and been having problems with bsod every day, which came up as Driver IRQL not less or equal and further down, tcpip.sys. I left it at the sellers for a check-up and they could find no problems but will be restoring it to default. My question is what programs are safe to install when I get it back? The only programs I had installed on it were PC Tools Spyware Doctor, Norton and Microsoft Office (also normal applications like lastfm and spotify.) Are any of these known to be incompatible with Windows 7? Some forums have been saying bad things about PC Tools, some about Norton, and recommend Microsoft Security Essentials. Can anyone give any input about what programs are better/worse or proven to make the system unstable? Would be much appreciated //Anna

A:programs compatible with windows 7?

The error was most likely caused by out of date drivers (more than likely vista drivers) being loaded on the system. We see that here several times a day if not more. Many of the bsod problems in win 7 are either over zealous security programs, or bad drivers. The remaining few generally being caused by bad hard ware. The techs at the seller are rarely properly qualified to diagnose these issues. The people that are get higher paying jobs in the IT sector.

Anyhow if the problem occurs after you get it back you can follow the bsod posting instructions here http://www.sevenforums.com/crashes-d...tructions.html

and let the bsod troubleshooters here have a crack at helping you with it.

Hi, this is my first post, and I'm so relieved to be here, where somebody might be able to help before I absolutely lose it. I've been googling this all day long, phrasing it every way I could think of, but none of the suggestions I saw given to other people worked for me.
I am usually very careful, but although I hate to admit it, I think I've learned just enough about the inner workings of my PC to become dangerous. I hope I am not responsible for this foul up.

I have had my Windows XP Home Edition for 9 months and have had very few problems. However, after trying to get QuickTime to play a video, (unsuccessfully) and enabling everything on it that related to video, I recieved a stream of messages on my desktop telling me that I had only 3 days to activate my Windows, since "substantial changes have been made to your hardware." So I did, over the phone, with an excruciatingly patient computerized voice. No problem.
BUT ~ I immediately started having ghastly problems with my PC ~ programs have disappeared, and so have several of my most precious files, amongst which are some pictures which took literally hundreds of hours to do on the 'Paint' program. It has also become either horrendously slow connecting to the internet, or it just keeps saying that it is 'connecting' without ever doing so. Even accessing my own files takes forever, and nothing looks the same.

At first I thought "Aha! System Restore should fix this!" ... Read more

I upgraded to win 7 64bit. and now some of my programs won't load due to compatibility issues. Can it be fixed?

A:Programs not compatible

Hello,

You could check online at the programs' website to see if they have an updated compatible version that you could download and install instead.

If not, then you could see if using compatibility mode on the programs may help.

The program that I want to uninstall is not compatible with vista and is not listed on the program files therefore I cannot remove it. I have tried system restore to a point before installation but this is coming up with an error so will not restore. Is there any other way? The software I want to remove was for the HP psc 2100 printer.

A:Uninstalling Programs Not Compatible With Vista

Is it an HP PSC 2100 or some other 2100 model? Looks like there are 2105 through 2179 series printers. You need the exact model number. It looks like there are Vista drivers for all of the 2100 series drivers listed. Try http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/prodTop...;cc=us&dlc= and see if it has a compatible driver.

A:What anti-virus software programs are compatible with win xp pro?

slimdog23
Here is an paragraph from an article listed at
http://www.winplanet.com/winplanet/tips/3502/1
TIP 7. Don't Ask for Virus Problems

Most users have antivirus software installed either at work or home. If you don't, you definitely need to invest, not only in a package of software, but in the subscription to the updates. Office XP is a new product and your antivirus software may not be compatible. All reputable vendors have upgrades to integrate with Office XP. If you are having problems with the latest updates for your antivirus software, contact the software vendor immediately and ask for the update/upgrade that is compatible with Office XP.
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------

However reviewing many AV products only one lists XP as compatible. Draw your own conclusion upon review. It is possible
the programs can be upgraded or already cover XP but their websites do not mention that.

Not sure about print shop.

Generally, I have not had as much trouble out of software as with hardware. I would research my webcam, printer and any scanner to see if it has XP support.

For Software, you can always try the compatability mode of XP.

Hi there
I recently changed a MOBO from an INTEL based one to one using an AMD PHENOM processor -- W7 didn't want any new activation rather surprisingly. (Broken Mobo and I had a spare ASUS MOBO lying around).

However the first time I switched to using a LAN cable instead of a Wifi USB adapter I got the "Hardware has changed - please activate windows. OK it activated fine -- however seems strange to me that a MOBO change didn't call for any activation (Disks, memory, DVD device etc were canaballized from the old machine) but a simple switch from Wifi to a LAN did. !!! The internal logic of the activation process seems totally illogical and bizarre. (Running W7 x-64 ULTIMATE). !!!

Cheers

Stumbled accross this by accident that windows has 3 days before it wall automatically activate. So I clicked activate. It gave me this message header. "The Windows Vista Home Premium product key you typed is invalid for windows activation". There are 3 options. 1 is to Buy a new product key online. 2 is to type a different product key. 3 is to contact Hewlett-Packard Company to resolve this issue. I contacted Hewlett-Packard Company and they had me call Microsoft. Microsoft wants to charge me $100 for something I already own. Very confused. Anyway does anyone have a fix for this. Thank you

Hi
You have two choices:
You may either reinstall using the recovery partition, if you have one.
or
You could look for the key on the computer. It can be anywhere, including the battery compartment, if you have a lappy.
As a last restort you can try to use magic jelly bean, but I have doubts since you reinstalled.

Hi Gents,

Hope someone can help me here. I've been using a retail version of Win7 Home premium 64 for about 2 years now with no issues.

During that time I've reinstalled the product possibly 6 or 8 times. Excessive I know but when things start to go wrong I like to start fresh again. Anyway from memory the last 2 times I have had to use phone activation.

A couple of weeks ago I dropped my laptop and killed the HDD. Put in a new one and reinstalled Win. I've just tried to activate with no luck. I went to phone activation and being lazy I typed in my old code I had saved from last time.

Now I can't activate and when I try and open the phone activation box I get a pop up from the toolbar saying the copy isn't genuine and nothing more.

Is there a way to resolve this or have I pissed off the activation so much that I actually have to shell out for a new copy?

Thanks in advance and I'm located in Thailand if that makes a difference.

Hiya,

I am having a problem with my windows 7 home premium 64bit. I wiped my computer to try and get a new graphic card to work( never got it working, gave up and went back to my old graphic card) Since then I have had to wipe my computer a number of times, I kept having to wipe my computer since the same problem kept happening. Which is that my windows will crash and wont work after about 1-2mins after start up.

I thought it was my disk so I installed it from a usb windows installer and has been runnign fine for about 2 weeks until I was free to do the phone activation of my windows, I phoned up the activation after using my computer for a while then after I phoned and it came up genuine (like normal) I went to get a drink befor doing more work and once getting back to my computer I opened a new tab on firefox it was very slow on the internet so I clsoed my browser and tried to reopen it and but it woulnd't open windows has frozen completely so I pressed the restart button on my case and let it boot up and then it wouldn't let me do anything.

Does anyone have any idea of how come my computer seem to freeze and refuse to work once I use the windows phone activation?

A:Windows wont work after using windows 7 home phone activation

What makes you think it is the activation? Did you go click on "Start Button", right click on "Computer" and left click on "Properties"? When the screen comes up scroll down to the right bottom of the screen and you should see a "Genuine Windows Logo". If it says something different then there is an activation problem.

I just completely reformatted my computer after a suspected malware attack.
The first thing I tried after reformatting and doing a clean install of Windows 7 Professional 64 bit edition was to run windows update. I received the error code 80072EFD. This is before I installed any software, firewalls, or antivirus programs. I also get this same error when trying to activate windows or office, or when trying to set up Microsoft media center.

I do have internet connection. Both firefox and internet explorer work perfectly fine.

We purchased a VLK with Software Assurance from a local distributor here my question is what if from their VLSC License the Operating System listed are

10 Windows 7 Professional
82 Windows 8 Enterprise
15 Windows 7 Enterprise

We don't want to install Windows 8 as of now to our office and we wanted to retain the Windows 7 Pro and Enterprise as our Operating System. Do we have a problem for Activation if we still insists to used Windows 7 Pro and Enterprise Operating System using the Windows 8 Enterprise 82 Licenses?

Thank you very much

A:Activation Windows 8 Enterprise VLK but wanted to install Windows 7Ent

There is no way you can use a Windows 8 Enterprise licence for anything else than Windows 8 Enterprise. You simply can not activate Windows with a product key belonging to another Windows version and edition.

With those licences you can install and activate 27 25 Windows 7, not a single more.

I'm trying to find a way to keep specific programs from being added to my Recent Programs list on my start menu. (In my case, it's to keep programs in my Games folder from showing up since they are already easily found right off of the start menu.)

Reading around I keep seeing the same registry solution ("Add the title as a value to this specific key") but that particular example, as others later say, seems to only work on Vista.

Does anyone know of a method for Windows 7 that has been tested and verified will do the same thing?

A:Hide specific programs from being added to Recent Programs? (Windows 7)

It just occurred to me that I have a program installed (Revo Uninstaller Pro) that is actually doing what I am asking for here. It is a Start Menu shortcut like any other with no additional parameters.

Speaking theoretically, of course, would it be more likely something within the program itself (such as running the program and at the moment of running it deletes the shortcut) or possibly the solution to my problem found maybe in the registry?

I'm just throwing ideas at the wall here.

I have Windows 7 Prof x64.

My question is, when displaing all software installed and choosing more columns of information to display, they don't stay. For example, choosing Location column. Getting out of the installed programs list and then returning to it, the Location column is gone.

Is there some what to get the columns to be persistent?

A:Question about Windows 7 Control Panel\Programs\Programs and Features

The Programs and Features listing is shown to you by the Explorer app. Each time that you open/close the Windows (file) Explorer while viewing a folder (or a special view/list like the Programs and Features listing), Explorer tries to write info to the registry about how Explorer was showing you that folder. Windows (file) Explorer tries to write this "how to display a folder" info at other times besides just closing an Explorer window, but I'll not go into all of that.

Microsoft has not solved the problem that happens when these places in the registry get too big. When this happens, you may see the problem that you are experiencing - that of no longer being able to store the layout/view/column width/column selection/... info in the registry.

Below is video that I made showing registry keys being made. (I'm not suggesting that you mess with the registry.) Notice that new keys are made when visiting the folder named Temp. Deleting this Temp folder does not remove those registry keys. If you close Windows (file) Explorer while viewing a compressed folder (a ZIP file), the Explorer app tries to make keys so that it can remember how it last showed you that folder. If you delete or move that ZIP folder to another location, the original registry keys remain. So you can see how this area of the registry can fill up.

edit: I had to make this video again. I hope that I covered all of the original points.

One solution is to remove all of the entries/keys in the areas of ... Read more

Hello all,
I have a very specific question that i can not find an answer.

I bought a new pc and i want to buy Windows 10 Pro. I have found a very good price for a Windows 7 Pro license which will give me a free upgrade to Windows 10 Pro.

I will have the key in the following days but the pc is assembled and ready.

(1)Can i clean install Windows 10 Pro and activate it with the windows 7 pro key that has never been activated even for a windows 7 machine or
(2)should i first install windows 7 pro, activate it with the key and then clean install windows 10 and activate it with the windows 7 pro key

Thank you.

A:Activation of Windows 10 (clean install) from a Windows 7 Pro edition

Hi Trod,
You can install W10 NOW and you dont have to activate it immediately, theres a 30 day grace period.
So when you get your W7 package you can activate it with the product key.
Windows 10 - Clean Install - Windows 10 Forums.

note your purchased W7 pro licence MUST be either System builder or retail or it will not activate

A few days ago, noticed that my automatic Windows update did not download 2 new updates. I tried manually but got error code 8007007E. I also noticed that some of the desktop icons had a small shield on them and when I tried to open them, they would not open and a window would open stating "specified module could not be found". I tried uninstalling some programs and they would not install. Then yesterday, I had to remove the Vista Home Security 2011 malware, which somehow got through McAfee and my Malware security. I need some help to get these programs running and/or to clean up a corrupted drive.

Issue abruptly started about 1 week ago. All programs I open freeze and sometimes crash. If I try to copy past, I'll get a "Not responding" from explorer.exe. The only program that works is Steam. I can't scan with Malwarebytes of Spybot as the programs crash. Sometimes I can surf the web for a few minutes before it all crashes again. Tried a system restore, that failed - said it could not restore.

Also startup and shutdown time has increased from about 1 minute each to about 3 minutes each minimum

Sorry, but the Windows 8 Consumer Preview expired on January 15th 2013. You will no longer be able to activate it.

You'll need to either purchase Windows 8, or go back to whatever you had installed before.

Hello
I have read through this and many other forums in the last two weeks in regards to this issue, I hope this is not a duplicate.
Inspiron 3537 i5 laptop running windows 8 bought from Dell outlet UK in April 2014, certified refurbished. Upgraded to 8.1 straight away and the W10 without issue. Hard drive failed last month, lost everything my daughters laptop, no she didn't make a recovery disk!  I replaced the hard drive, smaller capacity but still SATA 2 and started looking around the forums for solutions for recovery.  I came across a thread here in regards to using  Microsoft  created installation media, which I successfully created to a DVD and installed on my new hard drive. On completion I had a activation problem, although being assured that 8.1 would be activated I was aware that my product key pre installed in the BIOS was W8.  I contacted Microsoft support and was told to contact Dell who informed me that 8.1 would never work and relieved me of £30 and sent  a W8 disk, although annoyed that I am paying for something twice I considered it a type of fine for not creating one.
I clean installed, booted from the DVD, I accepted the licence agreement from Microsoft which thanked me for choosing a pc pre-installed with W8, unfortunately at the end, not activated.

I purchased this laptop in July of 2014 from Micro Center. It came with Windows 8 installed. I upgraded to 8.1 and then finally Windows 10.  This is a personal laptop I use infrequently. Last week when I turned on the computer it would not boot and got as far as the HP logo with the spinning wheel of death. I tried numerous fixes and finally had to settle for a full clean recovery.  That worked well and I'm now back to 8.0 however I now keep getting the notice:  "You Need To Activate 8.0 (without it I can't update to 8.1 and without that I can't get to 10 if that option is still available). I do not have the windows key / certifcate to enter.  I never backed up or made a recovery disc. Can anyone help me with this?  I would hope that HP will  have a fix for owners like me that this happens to without having to buy an OS for get a  key. In my mind since I bought this the key should be automatically givin to us. Note: I get an error code OxC004C003 on the activation page which I think means I upgraded to 10 from 8.1 using free upgrade offer but somwhere along the way an activation didn't happen. I made no signifcant hardware changes other than installing additional RAM. Thanks for your help out there
