16-bits program error message in 64-bits W7...

Question: 16-bits program error message in 64-bits W7...

This is a rather unsual error message from Windows 7, that cannot even run 16-bits programs, quote:

"Too many other files are currently in use by 16-bit programs. Exit one or more 16-bit programs, or increase the value of files in your Config.sys file."

The only time that this issue shows up is when trying to run a program as administrator from within my standard user account. The "Run as..." could be initiated either manually, or by running a program that requires elevated access rights to the system, such as starting an installation as a standard user.

The error is seemed to be triggered by the UAC, or more accurately the "consent.exe" file that actually locks up the screen and nothing can be accessed. It seems that the system is waiting for input for the UAC, clicking anywhere on the screen results in the typical error sound but nothing else. The "ctrl-alt-del" does bring up a list, selecting log out pops up the quoted error message during the logoff process. Logging back in with the same UID seems normal, until the "Run as..." initiated and the system seems locked again. Rebooting the system clears up this error, but it does come back in an irregular interval. The timeframe could be from an hour, or more, on some days it does not come back at all.

While Windows 7 64-bit does not have a "config.sys" file, one has been added to "C:\" that contains:


Code:
Files=130
Buffers=1000
It's too early to tell, if this will be any usefull on the long run.

Does anyone have an idea why this error popping up?

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.)

Answer: 16-bits program error message in 64-bits W7...

Well, having the "config.sys" file did not help. The system still have the same issues as posted earlier. Removing EMET 3.5 didn't help either...

Other than the "Run as...", the system works fine with any other programs. While I could grant administrator access to my user account, I'd prefer not to do it.

Would anyone have an idea what could cause this issue?

Hello Tech Support Guy Nation,

So I have an issue with getting a laptop hooked onto the router signal. The router is a brand spankin new Linksys EA4500 and the laptop is an IBM which is running Win XP (not sure of SP version as it is a customer's comp. at a hotel I run). Anyway, the error message I am encountering is:

The network password needs to be 40 bits r 104 bits depending on your network configuration. This can be entered as 5 or 13 ascii characters or 10 or 26 hexadecimal characters

At first I thought is was my router password since it contained a $ symbol so I changed it to only letters and numbers but still didn't work. I have never encountered this error message on any laptops and no other rooms have been affected. Thank you as always for the the knowledge...
 

Answer:Solved: Error Message:"The network password needs to be 40 bits r 104 bits depending.

You are using WPA or WPA2 encryption and the laptop--because of the lack of at least service pack 2, incorrect wireless driver, or old wireless adapter--does not support WPA(2).

my desktop is Dell XPS 730. it currently using Vista 32 bits. Everything runs very slow and none of games are runnable due frames dropping, skipping, and freezing even after I installed new Hard Drive. I decided upgrade to Windows 7 64 bits would help with running minecraft game without issue.

I downloaded Windows 7 USB DVD download tool and Windows 7 64 bits ISO. it installed into flash drive successful but it came with bootsect error. So I looked around for it and found here 32-Bit BootSect

I downloaded "bootsect7600x86.zip". I right clicked and clicked on Properties and clicked unblock then applied and clicked ok. Then opened and I only find Bootsect exe file, nothing else. so I clicked that and command prompts came up and disappeared really instant and nothing ever happened. What am I missing? I also need Window 7 64 bits for my laptop after new HDD arrive. Just needed to make USB bootable somehow.

EDIT: I did right clicked on that exe file and did not see "run as admin"

EDIT2: Forgot to add, do I need to have product key code? Im upgrading my desktop from vista 32 bit to windows 7 64 bit

Answer:Upgrade to Windows 7 home perm 64 bits from Vista 32 bits

The term is bit, not bits

Use WintoBootic to put the iso on the flash drive, it works perfectly everytime.

WiNToBootic bootable usb drive windows vista/7/8 - Bootable USB | Bootable USB

Where are you downloading the iso from, I would download it again and check the size when you`re done.

Home Premium and Professional 64 Bit are both 3.09 GBs

Heres the story, if it were a common problem we could find it in Google, I looked too.
It may be a virus or other nasty
Run your anti virus scan
Download and run malwarebytes, the full scan after you update the software

I installed Autocad 2010 in window 7(64 bits). I couldn't install because Autocad software software is 32 bits. Window 7 is 64 bits. So it couldn't not install. So I would like to know how to install 32 bits software in 64 bits window 7.

Answer:how to install 32 bits software in 64 bits window 7

32 bit software will run on 64 bit Windows 7 without any special steps being taken. Windows 7 64 bit actually maintains a 32 bit registry in order to accommodate 32 bit programmes.If you cannot install Autocad the problem is likely to be something more that the 32/64 bit difference. There is the possibility that it wouldn't even install on 32 bit Widows 7 and it is the OS itself that is the problem.You need to contact Autocad and see what they say about the problem, after all they know there own software better than anyone else.Stuart

Hey,
as the title says, I find myself in a dilema..

It started when I decided I wanted to put a total of 4GB of RAM in my computer. The problem is that I have Windows XP x86 (32-bits) installed.
Then, a few friends of mine adviced me to get rid of this old Windows XP (32-bits), get the total of 4GB of RAM and install Windows 7 x64.

My CPU's architecture supports x64 systems, as I have 4 cores. My main problem, is that I would have to reinstall all my programs, applications and drivers (because I have the 32-bits-versions installed) and that if I stay with my 32-bits-XP system, it would only read 3 to 3.5GB of RAM aprox.

In response to this, a friend told me that Windows 7 x64 wouldn't cause compatibility issues with those 32-bit programas, applications and drivers. However, if I'd like to get the best performance, I would have to download/get the x64-compatible-versions..

To sum it up, I would really like if you experts could help me and get me out of this dilema. Is it true what my friends mentioned me? Should I change and get the new Windows 7 x64? Which would be the downsides and which the upsides?

I would also like to mention that I am a still and motion graphics designer, and that the latest softwares for that (for instance all Adobe CS4) have come out x64.This would definitely be a plus if I change to Windows 7 x64, right?

Thank you very, very much.. Really.
Best regards,
Chris.

Hello Dare2winnn,

It's recommended to use a 64-bit AV program on a 64-bit OS for full protection. Some 32-bit AV programs will not install on a 64-bit OS.

Can someone explain these figures to me? Im talking about 8 Bits/channel in terms of imagery and pictures. I dont really get these. Is it the smaller the number, the better the picture? And, I heard that there are also different colour channels? Like Red and Blue channels, are these just the channels in which the computer can read and identify?And what about 48 bit colour? Is that in the same category as 8 Bits/channel? Or is it something totally different.I need to know more about colours.Thanks.

Answer:48 bits 16 bits 8 Bits Channel.

Essentially, bits per channel represents colour depth, the higher the bits per channel, the higher the range of distinct colours. This should explain better than I could click hereAnd when your finished reading that click here for answers to your colour channels query.

Been using Vista Home Premium for a while with no problem. However, I now have a copy of retail Ultimate 64 bits. I read that there are many benefits besides being able to see all 4Gig of rams with 64 bits. As the process only be done by clean installation, I would like to know how, if I can at all, to back up all the stuffs that I've been using so I can "restore" after I switch to 64 bit instead of redo everything. I'll be greatly appreciate if you can explain to me step by step.

Please let me know anything significant I need to know before I switch?

Thank you!

Answer:Need help in 32 bits to 64 bits switching...

Hi Bruce2,

Welcome to the forum.

Since you are switching from 32 bit to 64 bit Vista, the safest route is to just backup any files you do not want to lose to a CD/DVD. You can just transfer them back when done installing the 64 bit. There is just to much of a difference to do a complete backup and restore between the two bit version with your programs and installers.

If you would like to make it even easier, have all of your programs and 64 bit drivers installation files on DVD as well.

Hello,
 
I'm running Windows 8.1 x64 so couldn't get a DDS log for this topic.
 
After receiving a large overage charge from my ISP I began closely monitoring my bandwidth usage.  After much diagnosing, it's been concluded that the Background Intelligent Transfer Service (BITS) is often times throughout the day connecting to various IP addresses within my ISP's subnet, i.e. 209.165.150.10, 209.165.150.11, and maxing out the WAN connection to my LAN IP address and downloading approx. 1 GB of data before disconnecting.  It would do this several times a day but I cannot determine what it could possibly be downloading so much data for.  I originally placed a rule on the firewall to block this traffic before determining the cause to be the BITS service and have since stopped this service.  I don't feel this should be necesssary.
 
Is it possible something malicious is utilizing this service to download large amounts of useless data?  I did run MBAM and it found:

Hi All - My Windows updates on 8.1 will not install. It acts like it is downloading and installing but it finally gives me error 80246008.

So off to the Resource Monitor (resmon). BITS shows that it is stopped and I can't start it from there. Windows update (in Processes) is pulling 25% of my CPU. I never noticed because my computer hasn't slowed down.
 
Now to Process Explorer. Windows update showed as Wuauserv and netsvcs in the Resource Monitor. I found the svchost containing Windows Update in the Process Explorer. It's pulling 25% CPU. There are 13 other items under that svchost if you need them. Since BITS is a service I didn't look for it.

Hi All - My Windows updates on 8.1 will not install. It acts like it is downloading and installing but it finally gives me error 80246008. After some searching I discovered this means that I have to turn on BITS (Background Intelligent Transfer Service for those who know as little as I do). (BTW, I'm the Administrator & the only one who uses the computer). I went to services.msc and it shows that BITS is running on automatic. Something I read online while researching this said that COM+EVENT might be related. It is also running on automatic.
 
So off to the Resource Monitor (resmon). BITS shows that it is stopped and I can't start it from there. Windows update (in Processes) is pulling 25% of my CPU. I never noticed because my computer hasn't slowed down.
 
Now to Process Explorer. Windows update showed as Wuauserv and netsvcs in the Resource Monitor. I found the svchost containing Windows Update in the Process Explorer. It's pulling 25% CPU. There are 13 other items under that svchost if you need them. Since BITS is a service I didn't look for it.

Hi,
I have been trying to update y newly installed copy of WIN10 for the last week due to the fact that I cannot open most windows apps including the store and the XBOX app. I have tried everything I could find online to fix it and have gotten to what I believe to be the root of the problem, but I cannot find a solution.

When i try try to update, it just hangs at 0% until Update gives me the error code 0x80248007 for all the updates I am trying to install. I did some digging and found out this is due to the Background Intelligent Transfer Service (BITS) not starting. All the processes BITS depends on are working and running and every time I try to start it in windows services I get the error code 2147023828 and it never starts.

Any help would be greatly appreciated, I really like Windows 10 and would like to update it so that maybe all the bugs I am experiencing will be resolved

*******SOLVED********
"Good news! I found that the Network Location Awareness and Network List services were stopped. After starting them, BITS was able to run. So you were right, the network list errors were involved. Is it safe to say that at least one of those services should be included in BITS' dependencies list?In any case, Windows Update is finally working again. Thank you so much for your attentive help.
Cheers."

Hi guys,
I have a nasty problem on Windows 8.1
My BITS Service won't start (and therefor Update, Store, etc are all down).
Event log shows two error events;
The BITS service failed to start. Error 0x80070002.
The Background Intelligent Transfer Service service terminated with the following service-specific error:
The system cannot find the file specified.
Addditionally another error appears every now and then:
The ScRegSetValueExW call failed for FailureActions with the following error:
Access is denied.
I've tried so far:
wsreset.exe
Windows Update Troubleshooter -> first few times it just said it coudn't fix my problem, now it just hangs on starting BITS
sfc /scannow -> no errors found
Microsoft FixIT for Win Update
System Restore
Refreshing the image using DISM
I checked all the registery keys for BITS with another build 9600 pc and made them matching, no effect.
Any thoughts?

Answer:BITS Service gives Error 0x80070002

Stop the Automatic Updates service
Click Start. search. In the search box, type services.msc. Click OK.

Event ID: 16398

A new BITS job could not be created. The current job count for the user Kudryavka\Torugu (60) is equal to or greater than the job limit (60) specified through group policy. To correct the problem, complete or cancel the BITS jobs that haven't made progress by looking at the error, and restart the BITS service. If this error recurs, contact your system administrator and increate the per-user and per-computer Group Policy job limits.

A user I am helping is having this issue; has anyone in the Networking forums seen this on Windows 7 Home Premium x64? Is there a solution?

Answer:Is there a known fix for Event ID: 16398 BITS service error?

An update: I looked at Event ID 16398 and since Home Premium does not have a group policy editor, it does not apply. Are there ways to fix the problem in Windows 7 Home Premium?

So far, for this particular gremlin I get Warnings, not "Critical" - Reading many posts on roughly similar BITS errors I seem to be lucky as some result in consistent BSOD's

I have some registry problems in my recently installed windows 7 64 bits.

When I try to add a 32 bits ODBC throw C:\Windows\SysWOW64\odbcad32.exe (and running as Administrator) and It throws me a "Cannot Write to registry" error.

If I enter into regedit as an administrator and if I go to any entry under the HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Wow6432Node\ODBC\ODBC.INI I get an Access Denied error. If I try to assign rights to that key, It says I don't have permission to change the permissins.

Thanks, Ariel

I've been struggling with my computer for months. When trying to download Windows updates it takes forever while it says it is preparing to install. Finally I get a big red X and the error code80246008. Windows says click here for the fix and then of course says it can't help. I realized that the svchost (netsvcs) that includes Windows Update is 25% of CPU usage. If I turn off Windows Update the CPU goes back to about 5%. I have so much room on my drive it wasn't noticeably moving more slowly. I know that there are huge MBs of updates. I've been doing this for a few months now and I can't remember how I got onto it but I think it's BITS. BITS is under the same svchost along with update. BITS looks to be turned on in every place but my Resource Monitor. I can't get it to start there. Otherwise Services.msc, Process Explorer etc seem to show it running fine but pulling a lot of CPU..

I tried the solution of doing something regarding net start bits and net start wuauserv. I know I did something before that but this didn't start BITS. sfc/scannow result is: Windows Resource Protection found corrupt files but was unable to fix some of them. Details are included in the CBS.log. Maybe I should have started with this. I don't know a lot about computers and I don't know how to get into the CBS.log. I'd bet my Christmas presents that the corrupt file is BITS. I read something about having to get a new file from another computer t... Read more

I am trying to update my system with windows update, but it doesnt' work..

I have narrowed it down to BITS not starting.. When I open services and try to
start it manually, I get the error "Windows could not start the BITS service on LOCAL COMPUTER. Error 2: The system cannot find the file specified"

I have tried the Microsoft FixIt and the Fix Windows Update utility from TheWindowsClub.. From another post, I also noticed the folder at

\users\all users\application data\microsoft\network\download

is set to 'read only'.. I can uncheck that, but it stays as read only.. I'm
not sure if that has anything to do with it or not..

Is this fixable? I'd like to update!

Answer:BITS Error 2: The System cannot find the file specified

This may be simple, or it may be very complex - are you ready for what could be a long thread?
If not, then a repair install is the way to go.

A little history on your problem would help us decide how complex this is likely to get.
Have you had malware problems recently?
How long-standing is your problem?
What other symptoms apart from not being able to update are you seeing?

Hey all,
Windows updates and Microsoft Security Essentials won't update, Windows Update giving the error code 80246008. Looks like cause is the Background Intelligent Transfer Service is unable to start.

Error when trying to start the service:





Quote:
Windows could not start the Background Intelligent Transfer service on the local computer. For more information review the system event log. If this is a non-Microsoft service contact the service vendor and refer to service-specific error code -2147024894


Things I've done:
1. Ran sfc /scannow (no problems reported)
2. All steps here: Windows Update Error 80246008 in Windows 7 - Fix
3. Attempted this: You receive an error message when you try to download updates from the Windows Update Web site or from the Microsoft Update Web site, or when you try to start the Background Intelligent Transfer Service
But when doing "regsvr32 qmgr.dll" results in an error:





Quote:
The module "qmgr.dll" was loaded but the entry-point DllRegisterServer was not found.
Make sure that "qmdr.dll" is a valid DLL or OCX file and then try again.


Any ideas?

Answer:Update error 80246008 with BITS unable to start

Ok problem solved. I've seen this issue around the net in a lot of places with no real fixes, so I'll post mine.

What was happening was that BITS was unable to start. Apparently "-2147024894" translates to an "Access is Denied" error.

The folder "C:\Users\All Users\Application Data\Microsoft\Network\Downloader" seemed to have permissions issues that have plauged the rest of my Windows 7 experience. Thus, I fixed the problem using the "Take Ownership" program from these forums on that folder. Take Ownership.

The BITS service was able to start, and I can now download and install Windows Updates.

I hope that this information will help others with this problem.

Last night there was a power failure (lightning strike) while I was running Windows Update. Today when I run Windows Update I get Error 80246008, and I am unable to start the Background Intelligent Transfer Service (BITS), which gives service-specific error code -2147024713.

What I have done so far to try to solve the problem:

1. Run sfc /scannow, which reports no errors.

2. Deleted the contents of the C:\ProgramData\Application Data\Microsoft\Network\Downloader folder.

3. Run Microsoft Fix It 50202 in Aggressive mode, which is supposed to solve this problem. It reports that it is unable to start the BITS service.

I'm about out of ideas, so some help would be appreciated.

Answer:Windows Update error; cannot start BITS service

I solved the problem. First, I did a system restore from the last restore point prior to the power failure. But that wasn't the only thing necessary. I then ran Microsoft Fix it 50123, which apparently recreated the damaged files in the C:\ProgramData\Application Data\Microsoft\Network\Downloader folder and successfully started the BITS service. And that seemed to take care of it; Windows Update ran without error. The only trouble with these Fix its and wizards is that you don't entirely know what they do.

Hello,
I have a pretty frustrating problem with my Windows 8.1 laptop. The BITS service won't start. There are 3 different errors shown in Event Viewer:
1. The Background Intelligent Transfer Service service terminated with the following service-specific error:
The system cannot find the file specified.
2. The BITS service failed to start. Error 0x80070002.
3. The server {4991D34B-80A1-4291-83B6-3328366B9097} did not register with DCOM within the required timeout.
So far I have tried:
-chkdsk
-sfc/scannow
-Windows Update Troubleshooter
-wsreset.exe
-Refreshing the image using DISM
-making sure the registry key parameters were correct
How can I fix this issue?
Thank you very much

Answer:The BITS service failed to start. Error 0x80070002.

After looking more into the issue, I noticed a few other problems.
1. I can't register qmgr.dll: the module qmgr.dll" was loaded but the entry-point DllRegisterServer was not found
2. Windows Automatic Update Service is not showing up in services.msc. I read in a forum that I should type this command into command prompt to reinstall it: %windir%\System32\rundll32.exe setupapi,InstallHinfSection DefaultInstall 132 %windir%\inf\au.inf
But command prompt just tells me that the installation failed.

Hello, I am trying to clean up a computer. I went to do a Windows update and noticed that the computer hasn't been able to update since 2010. The error code that I searched on google which is 80246008, in an old Microsoft forum post showed that this could be a sign of potential malware if you are unable to start the BITS service. I have already done multiple scans such as rkill, tsdkiller in safe mode. I also did a Malwarebytes scan with their techbench product as well as a scan with roguekiller and a Kaspersky scan. If it would help I can give more information on the details of those scans. However, I am still not able to start the BITS service so I am wondering if there is something hiding that is disguised so as not to be found by a scan.  Scan result of Farbar Recovery Scan Tool (FRST) (x64) Version:01-12-2015Ran by Brian (administrator) on BRIAN-PC (03-12-2015 15:41:48)Running from C:\Users\Brian\DownloadsLoaded Profiles: Brian (Available Profiles: Brian & Mcx1-BRIAN-PC)Platform: Windows 7 Ultimate (X64) Language: English (United States)Internet Explorer Version 8 (Default browser: Chrome)Boot Mode: NormalTutorial for Farbar Recovery Scan Tool: http://www.geekstogo.com/forum/topic/335081-frst-tutorial-how-to-use-farbar-recovery-scan-tool/ ==================== Processes (Whitelisted) ================= (If an entry is included in the fixlist, the process will be closed.

I'm running Windows 7 SP1 (32 bit) on iMac (boot camp)

Hello there,

I'm wondering if someone can help me.I was not able to run Windows update. I was getting "Windows Update cannot currently check for updates because the service is not running"
I finally ran a Microsoft utility which errored out but still allowed me to run Windows update. At least I thought it did.

Now I'm getting "WindowsUpdate_80246008".

I tried a couple of things online and it appears that I'm missing the BITS service altogether. I'm not a big registry expert and it appears there may be a problem there. I also saw another post indicating that the qmgr.dll file could be corrupted.

I'm attaching the result of what services are currently started on my PC as well as the registry setting for BITS as indicated in another post. Not sure what other information you need.

I've been struggling with my computer for months. When trying to download Windows updates it takes forever while it says it is preparing to install. Finally I get a big red X and the error code80246008. Windows says click here for the fix and then of course says it can't help. I realized that the svchost (netsvcs) that includes Windows Update is 25% of CPU usage. If I turn off Windows Update the CPU goes back to about 5%. I have so much room on my drive it wasn't noticeably moving more slowly. I know that there are huge MBs of updates. I've been doing this for a few months now and I can't remember how I got onto it but I think it's BITS. BITS is under the same svchost along with update. BITS looks to be turned on in every place but my Resource Monitor. I can't get it to start there. Otherwise Services.msc, Process Explorer etc seem to show it running fine but pulling a lot of CPU..

I tried the solution of doing something regarding net start bits and net start wuauserv. I know I did something before that but this didn't start BITS. sfc/scannow result is: Windows Resource Protection found corrupt files but was unable to fix some of them.

I have been trying to resolve this issue since Friday with no great progress.

The main issue is that a program on the laptop needs the Background Intelligent Transfer Service set to Automatic start, however when you try to change this setting, I get an Access Denied error (Error 5), I also get a similar access denied error when trying to manually start the service.

I have done the following 'general fixes' with no success; chkdsk /r, sfc /scannow, windows update repair tool and windows repair.
Other things I've tried:

Setting permissions in the registry for the BITS entries to give full access using the user's account.
Setting a password on the Administrator account.
Repairing BITS using guide on another forum.
Start the service from Administrator account (in safe-mode) and new Temp account (with admin rights).
Precautionary virus & spyware scan as I've read that Vundo virus can cause problems like this, albeit not found.
Other information that may help:

I get the same error on the Automatic Updates service.
I noticed corruption on the Path to Executable:, where instead of reading %SystemRoot% it read %fystemRoot%, although I fixed these entries in Regedit.
When going into Safe-Mode it logs straight in to the user created account instead of normally asking at logon screen which account to login with (Administrator account not in list, but does exist)

Greetings all, tearing my hair out over this. I normally use google-fu to solve stuff but after a few hours I'm still stymied on this one.

My brother handed me this laptop that he had upgraded to Win10 (probably in the hopes it would magically fix longstanding problems he'd been having with it). It's x64, for the record.

I'm sure it's had malware infections in the past. I don't believe it currently does though--ran Malwarebytes and looked myself in msconfig and I don't see anything untoward.

But I think a previous malware infestation screwed up the BITS service to the point now where it will not start. I didn't notice this until I tried to run Windows update. No matter what I do I can't get it to install KB3081448 (well it won't even download it). Windows update fails with "There were problems installing some updates, but we'll try again later. If you keep seeing this and want to search the web or contact support for information, this may help:

"Cumulative Update for Windows 10 for x64-based Systems (KB3081448) - Error 0x80246008"

That's what led me to check the status of the BITS service. It's set to Automatic but is stopped. When I try to start it I get:

"Windows could not start the Background Intelligent Transfer Service on Local Computer. For more information, review the System Event Log. If this is a non-Microsoft service, contact the service vendor. and refer to service-specific-error code -2147024894."

Hello,

I just noted that my Toshiba U300 laptop had a 32 bits operating system. It's now Windows 10 that I got with the free upgrade. My question : what's the easiest way to do a free W10 64 bits clean install ?

More details ... When I bought this laptop, it had Vista installed with 2Gb memory, which explains the 32 bits windows. It's now 4 Gb memory. I then upgraded to W8 with the pre order deal which gave me an upgrade product key. I never noted this was a 32 bits. If it's not too complex, I'd like to move to 64 bits.

I called Microsoft and they told me I had to go back to W8 as it's the only product key I have. Will I be able to clean install W8.1 from W10 with an upgrade key or will I have to restore the laptop to W8.1 and then clean install W8.1 64 bits ?

Is there a way to go directly to W10 64 bits clean install ? I had in mind that Microsoft was keeping the information as this laptop was allowed to use W10 without having to enter the key. If it's not the case, the free W10 upgrade could mean big troubles for a lot of people in the future when they want to touch the OS.

Thanks J Guy

Answer:W10 32 bits to 64 bits

All you have to do is clean install the same version and edition of Windows 10 64-bit. Skip entering a product key when asked. It will activate itself based on the digital entitlement now stored on Microsoft activation servers.

Version = Home, Pro, Education, Enterprise, etc.
Edition = "regular" Windows 10, "N" edition, Single Language edition.

If you don't have your Windows 8 product key written down, I would run showkey plus from this forum first to retrieve it and write it down - just in case.

Answer:32 bits or 64 bits

Hello Michel, and welcome to Seven Forums.

Please fill in and update your system specs (click on link). What type of hardware (ex: CPU supports 64-bit) will play a big part in whether your system will run 64-bit Windows 7 or not. Most do these days, but we must be sure.


For now, you will have to do a clean reinstall to go from 32-bit to 64-bit Windows 7.

Hope this helps for now,

Question: 64 or 32 bits

What could be the consequences of installing Windows 7 (64 bits) in a computer which is for 32 bits. The reason is that I've got a desktop which has 32 bits and a laptop which has 64 bits and I want to install (Windows 7--64 bits)in both. I want Windows 7 64 Bits which I am told is faster than the 32 bits. Can it work?

Answer:64 or 32 bits

The CPU in the PC must have 64 bit support built-in or the installation of 64 bit Windows will not be possible.As for performance you will only notice a difference if you install a lot of RAM, ie 4GB plus, and run software that can fully utilise that much RAM.

So I went to Microsoft and downloaded the .NET 3.0 framework update and attempted to install it, but got an error that I needed to enable BITS. so...i started to hunt down BITS and lo and behold, BITS is enabled. so i click start - 'cuz i can - and i get another error - "Error 1083: The executable program that this service is configured to run in does not implement the service." so...i go to the microsoft "knowledge" base and hunt down my lurvely error. i do what it says:

Error 1083: The executable program that this service is configured to run in does not implement the service. (0x8007043B)
If you receive this error message, follow these steps:
1. Click Start, click Run, type Regsvr32 %windir%\system32\qmgr.dll, and then click OK.
2. Click Start, click Run, type regsvr32 %windir%\system32\qmgrprxy.dll, and then click OK. (repeat for 30bazillion other files from another support site)
3. Click Start, click Run, type services.msc, and then click OK.
4. Double-click Background Intelligent Transfer Service.
5. In the General tab, click Start.​
SAME FREAKIN' ERROR COMES BACK AFTER!!!

i'm at my wit's end, because i've been troubleshooting this all day

Question: Bits?

I'm gonna sound like an idiot but... What exactly is a BIT?
I mean, we all say:
64 bit cpu
16 bit color
256 bit memory interface
etc. etc.
But what exactly does it mean?

Answer:Bits?

A bit is as 1 or 0

in reference to threads likethis, what is the deal with cpu and gpu technology data?

Cpu's are only next year comming out with 64bit processors, but gpu's had 128bit processors back in 1999. what's the difference?


 

Answer:what bits? 32/64/128/256?

I may be wrong, but this is my take on the bit system:

A bit is one of the smallest measures of file size in the computer industry. Most internet connections are measured in kilobit- 1,000 bits. Such as 28.8k. You should notice that you don't actually download at 28.8 kilobytes, as downloaders measure, but rather 3.6 kilobytes, which is the equivalent of 28.8 kilbits. A byte is 8 bits, and 28.8 divided by 8 is 3.6. To measure a bit, it is one normal character, i.e. not ASCII, be it a number, letter, sign, etc. A byte is an 8 letter word.
But, in relation to computer processors, I think the default '32-bit' architecture partains to how much information is calculated on every clock cycle, either 32 or 64 bits at once.* An operating system also runs with this architecture, which is why you hear about the 64-bit version of Windows XP. 64-bit architecture is backwards compatible with 32-bit, but 32 bit cannot run any 64-bit optimized architecture.
As for the 128-bit GPUs, I think you may be out of context, but I really can't explain that.

I think I butchered that. I never really learned about the bit architecture system, and these are all just logical assumptions. I would gladly enjoy someone who would explain it to me better/correctly

*I'm really not sure about that.

Question: 4 Bits only?

Recently, I ran a Windows Update. Everything color and resolution-wise was fine up until I rebooted. Once I did that, my screen was stuck in 800 x 600 and 4 bit color quality. I couldn't get anywhere through Microsoft help, so I thought I might try here.

HELP! PLEASE!

I am looking into buying an new computer they said it has 4 gig a bites of space . I do not know what this means . Can someone help Me please ?

Answer:how much is 4 gig a bits

You mean it had 4 gigs of RAM, which is memory. Hard drives that store your data are much larger than that.You can google for the difference in the two if you're confused. If the new computer had 4 gigs of ram, it probably had Windows 7 64 bit operating system on it. Windows 7 32 bit can only use around 3.5 gigs.

Answer:4gb ram only with 64 bits os???

64bit - x64 - What is 64 bit? Beginners’ guide
From the article:
"32-bit systems have a basic problem. Every part of a 32-bit microprocessor relies on the 32-bit technology. That is, not only the quantity of simultaneously managed information equals to 32 bits, but the system also handles the memory in 32-bit units (this operation is called memory addressing). If you install each and every update patch on your Windows XP operating system, it will almost take 256 MB of the memory. If you also want to use professionally set up firewall and anti-virus programs, that memory capacity will be too little, and your system will slow down considerably. The conclusion: convenient and safe solution of an average task requires a memory capacity of 512 MB today. In the case of gamers even 1 GB of memory is not considered to be too much. With the release of Windows Vista, this memory requirement will double because the operating system, which includes a great number of new features, requires 512 MB memory by default. If we install a firewall and an anti-virus program, even that will not suffice, which means that providing a safe and convenient environment for doing some ordinary work with the computer will require 1 GB of memory, and more than that (about 1.5-2 GB) for gamers. And with that, we have come to big issue: 32-bit processors cannot address more than 4 GB of memory due to the above-mentioned, somewhat more than 4 billion available combinations. The average r...

Hello,

I just noted that my Toshiba U300 laptop had a 32 bits operating system. It's now Windows 10 that I got with the free upgrade. My question : what's the easiest way to do a free W10 64 bits clean install ?

More details ... When I bought this laptop, it had Vista installed with 2Gb memory, which explains the 32 bits windows. It's now 4 Gb memory. I then upgraded to W8 with the pre order deal which gave me an upgrade product key. I never noted this was a 32 bits. If it's not too complex, I'd like to move to 64 bits.

I called Microsoft and they told me I had to go back to W8 as it's the only product key I have. Will I be able to clean install W8.1 from W10 with an upgrade key or will I have to restore the laptop to W8.1 and then clean install W8.1 64 bits ?

Is there a way to go directly to W10 64 bits clean install ? I had in mind that Microsoft was keeping the information as this laptop was allowed to use W10 without having to enter the key. If it's not the case, the free W10 upgrade could mean big troubles for a lot of people in the future when they want to touch the OS.

Thanks J Guy

Answer:W10 32 bits to 64 bits

All you have to do is clean install the same version and edition of Windows 10 64-bit. Skip entering a product key when asked. It will activate itself based on the digital entitlement now stored on Microsoft activation servers.

Version = Home, Pro, Education, Enterprise, etc.
Edition = "regular" Windows 10, "N" edition, Single Language edition.

If you don't have your Windows 8 product key written down, I would run showkey plus from this forum first to retrieve it and write it down - just in case.

Question: BITS dilemna

Hi, I have Windows Vista Home Premium on a quad 4gig computer. I have now found that Windows automatic update has not been successful since 24/11/09. I suspect BITS files are corrupted [cant be started]. Also my Windows Media Player [11] has decided not to read some of my avi and other videos, at the same time - maybe connected. Qtime does play some of these.
I downloaded Microsoft BITS repair file, and it says it is not needed at this time. Also downloaded other pertinent Microsoft Vista files but are not for my system??? I have Norton 360 and that downloads automatically without problems.
How do I get the Windows update and Windows Media PLayer working ??

I have a philips 107S (107S2) on NVIDIA GeForce2 MX/MX 400 and I only have the option of 4 bits of color. I'm really out of ideas to try to fix this. someone please help me.
 

Answer:i only have 4 bits of color

Have you got proper nVidia Detonator drivers installed? When you mean "the option of 4 bits color", are you referring to the "colour quality" in the settings tab of "display properties"?
