I got a Canon Printer which have no Vista support from official site which I wish to use it in Windows 7. I know it's an old AIO printer but sometimes the scanner comes in handy, but problem is I only get hold of XP driver for it. I tried installed the Virtual XP mode beta and I try to setup my printer, but my driver setup won't go through, it said it can't detect my printer.
So just want to ask is it actually possible to install XP-only device in Virtual XP mode so I can use the device in Windows 7 environment ? I didn't use much of Virtual PC so I am not quite sure.
I'm having a problem running some programs in XP mode (Windows 7 Ultimate x64). Roxio Creator 2009 gives me a message that 'Remote Desktop is not supported by this application'. Not sure what RD has to do with Roxio but, I looked in Device Manager and have 3 yellow ? (like many others I've read) for Virtual PC Integration Device. I've tried to let XP find the drivers on it's own but it does not. I'm not even sure if this has anything to do with my problems running programs but assume it does.
So, are there drivers available for this Virtual PC device and if so where?
Also, what should I see under Display Driver? My video card is not listed but as I'm not a Virtual PC user, this might be normal.
I've unistalled Amd Driver from Device Manager, Unistalled Catalyst software and ran Driver Sweeper. There is only 3 registeries that the Driver Sweeper CAN'T delete and these are under SYSTEM folder. I've tried to change user privilegies but this far I've not succeeded.
I am running XP mode virtually under 7 & have yellow exclamation marked "Other devices" "Virtual PC Integration Device" showing in device manager.I tried installing my graphics card's driver, which is probably stupid, but it ain't that.
I am receiving a "Windows cannot start this hardware device because its configuration information (in the registry) is incomplete or damaged. (Code 19)None of my USB ports are working. I have tried to update driers, and modify the registry, but nothing seems to work. I don't have a way to get the information off my system, as none of the ports work, so I can't reset the machine to factory settings.
While windows was uploading some updates yesterday, I cleaned my registry using Iolo's system mechanic tool and that's where the problems started. (I already read and understood your message: don't use those tools and stay out of your registry. A lesson I learned too late, unfortunately.)My computer rebooted and after a couple of minutes I noticed the message: " failure configuring windows features reverting changes ". I managed to bypass this loop by running in safe mode and recover my computer to a restore point in the past. This only worked partially: I get windows to run in normal mode but I get this message: "system failed while restoring the registry from the restore point. Restore point damaged or was deleted during restore". So it didn't restore but I can get into my windows now.So I don't get the 'reverting change loop' anymore, so I can access my computer but what's the mess? Well my computer is slow as hell.Like mentioned above, I already looked around on this forum and wrote down what I already tried. [code] My computer is terrible slow because of a registry defrag/optimization of a registry tool (in combination with windows update) --> I need to find a way to get back my old registry files but system recovery ain't working.
I upgraded to Windows 7, but I have a few software I installed on Virtual PC 2007 before. I use XP mode but can't find a way to use the virtual HD created with Virtual PC 2007. Is there a way to convert the virtual HD so that XP mode can recognize?
If i remove/uninstall 'High Definition Audio Device' Driver in Device Manager will Windows Update find it again?Because im having crackling issues basicly the sound is really choppy and choppy basicly and it makes my ram go to 100%
Got a new Windows 7 Enterprise 64 bit machine, found that it did not come with virtual PC. Downloaded the critical patch Windows6.1-KB958559-x64-RefreshPkg.msu and installed it. Windows Virtual PC shows up in my Start Menu. Good so far. I go through the steps to create a virtual machine and use the option to 'use an existing vhd file' and when I click 'Create' I get the above pop-up message "Cannot attach the virtual hard disk to the virtual machine. Check values and try again". A factual message but completely useless as with all error messages from Microsoft. I have tried the following:1. When I attach that vhd using Disk Management, it mounts in drive E:, I can see the files and browse the dirs in E:. In the Disk Management View, the drive shows up as 127 Gigs but 107 is unallocated space. The physical size of the vhd is only 25 Gigs2. Others in my company were able to create the virtual machine with the same vhd, checked the byte size and timing, so nothing is wrong with the vhd file itself.
3. Tried to create after shutting down all virus protection including the Micorsoft antimalware protection service. No luck4. Tried Vhd resize to resize the vhd to a smaller size (since it showed up in disk management as 127 Gigs, I thought maybe it was that size), but VHDResizer could not open the input file, gave an errors "Can only load fixed or dynamic drives"
I have a win7 64 bit pro system that I have created a win7 32 bit virtual machine in because of one program that won't operate in 64 bit. The program needs 32 bit video drivers installed but I can't figure out how to do that.
I opened the setup on the video card cd but it says "the graphics adapter installed in this system is not compatible with the current set of drivers" and it won't install the drivers. The opening screen of the setup cd says "installed graphics adapter: not found".
it seems that the g13 has some issues with virtual bus enumerator. in the hid devices. its a hit or miss on which computer will get this problem. what seems to be a simple problem turns into hair pulling. i cant seem to get this driver so i can force feed to the computer . and i dont care if i have to install it each time i want to use the g13. but i cant seem to find it. logitech has me install there latest program but that still does not resolve the problem. so in short
I am trying to install Windows 7 on a VMware 7 virtual machine, and it is asking for a driver. Windows 7 installs on just about any hardware you can throw at it. I have tried it on an ancient workstation with SCSI drives, and it installs without a problem. The same with serial ATA machines. Under Windows XP you would have to first supply it with a driver.
But now when I try to install Windows 7 on a VMware 7 virtual machine, it won't install. After the preliminary steps of asking for language and localization, it asks for a driver. Any idea why it does that, and what kind of driver it wants, and where I can get hold of one?
how i can format my pen drive if window 7 and XP is unable to format it. they are saying files are in use. i have kept window xp, photoshop and some other software in it. Now please tell me how can i delete these items or format it.
I upgraded my desktop's cpu, motherboard & memory the other day, but didn't do a clean install of Windows 7. It caused me some problems, but I have most of the issues resolved.However, there is one issue I can't resolve & it is regarding my network/internet connection. I have my Billion modem plugged into a D-Link Wireless Router, whihc is then plugged into 1) My desktop (Windows 7); 2) Work Laptop (XP SP3) & 3) Canon network printer. All was working fine before the upgrade. New mobo is an Asus P8P67 LE, with Realtek on board network adaptor.Now, I can't access the internet or the home network through the desktop. The cable is plugged in, but there is no acknowledgement of the PC being connected to anything. The lights around the LAN port on the mobo don't go on when a cable is connected, the light on the router doesn't go on when the cable is connected & Windows 7 says there is no connection.I tried plugging the modem directly into the PC, & the internet connection works, so I know the LAN port is working on the new mobo. I've also tried all combinations of cables & ports between the pc, the laptop & the router.
recently i made a post on my netbook's problem to activate windows, when I used Vista, unfortunately i couldn't. Well yesterday i updated my computer to Windows 7 Ultimate 32 bit, i tried to activate windows but at the point i give my product key, it says that the key i typed is not a windows 7 one.
I have a Gateway FX6801-05 which originally had Wiindows Vista installed. I purchased a complete Windows 7 ultimate (not upgrade, not OEM) from eBay. I wiped the disk then installed and verified it without a hitch. Automatic updates has been working fine.Yesterday I changed some things around on my motherboard. When I booted Windows 7 Ultimate, which has been installed on my computer for several years now, it reported that my copy of Windows was invalid. Apparently the motherboard remembered the OEM Vista product number. I tried reauthorization both on the web and by phone using my new product key of Windows 7. The phone reauthorization doesn't even allow me to talk with a support person.Did I really buy an unauthorized Windows 7 ultimate, or is something weird going on here because VISTA OEM was originally installed on this computer?
So, I've recently been getting this "The Windows 7 Home premium product key is invalid for activation" I wasn't getting this the first two weeks after I re-installed my Windows 7 home premium, so I assumed everything was fine. Then, I started to get this... I don't see why the key would be invalid, it's the key that's on the bottom of my laptop, and yes before anyone asks, my windows os before was windows 7 home premium 64 bit, like the one I have installed now.
I am trying to install a copy of Windows 7 Professional x64, obtained through my university's MSDNAA program, on my desktop. Through research, and another thread on this forum i have attempted to make a USB disk to load the .iso onto the desktop, however when moving the files from the iso onto the flash disk it returns the error "Invalid MS-DOS Function" when trying to copy/move the install.wim, install_Windows7 PROFESSIONAL.clg, as well as the other .clg files. What can I do to remedy this issue and get this thing to install? The computer I am attempting to do this on is my Windows 7Pro x86 laptop.
I try to input the product key and get an invalid product key error. Now the only place I have the code written is on the actual CD i have for Windows, and that is just a burnt copy. The key and OS was from my old college I went to 3 or 4 years ago and it was legit. Everything was genuine and validated fine but now I am having problems.Now is there a way to call up Microsoft and have them run my laptop hardware or something to show that this is the same laptop and same hardware i have been using for the past 4 years and have them get me an activation code?
I am getting a message windows 7 in not genuine,build 7600 and keep losing my background ,and when i boot up my compaq i get invalid serial number,when i try to activate my product key it give me error
