Windows Essentials 2012 Installing Errors

Question: Windows Essentials 2012 Installing Errors

Alright, I have been running into a lot of problems lately with installing Windows Essentials 2012. I have gotten 2 different error codes which I have looked into forums about at and done everything they said to do. I have successfully installed it but then when I attempted to launch Movie Maker (which is all I need) it told me that I was missing something (shouldn't the installation put EVERYTHING you need for the program to run on your computer?!). So I got that file and put it in the appropriate folder and then again attempted to launch Windows Live Movie Maker and I got another message saying I was missing a DIFFERENT file. I have run 2 different virus scans and cleans on my computer (because some forum told me to run a scan). Now what is happening is that I am running the installer and with in matter of seconds it says that Windows Essentials has successfully installed. However, when I go and try and use one of the WLE programs IT... IS... NOT... ON... MY.... COMPUTER! I am starting to get pissed off. I have spent hours on end attempting to fix this problem and no forum has helped me.

Hopefully now I can get some real help on what to do.

Is it safe to install Windows Essentials 2012 on a Windows 10 Surface Pro 3? Photo Gallery is what I am really after because it has a photo resize function where W10 Photo app does not.

Answer:Windows Essentials 2012

I see no reason why you cannot.
MS is still supporting Windows Essentials.

I don't have a Surface Pro, but I have been using Windows Essentials 2012 programs on my 2 laptops running Win 10.

Why did you use the word" safe" ?
You have heard of warning of that kind ?

Hi,

I try installing Windows Essentials and it wont install! This came up for 1 hour

I got bored and cancelled the process and now the windows all user install service agent wont work, I cant log onto and internet connection won't come to my apps I have install.

Do I have to refresh my computer or anything else?

Thanks

Al

Answer:Help with WIndows Essentials 2012

A refresh would be your easiest option. Remember that a refresh will remove any installed apps that were not pre-installed on the system and your data files will land in C:\Windows.old. Since that's the case, I like to suggest that afterwards, you install the apps you life, then create a new image using the "recimg" command line tool. That way your "refresh" will refresh with your apps installed and data intact.

Microsoft has released Windows Essentials 2012 which includes new versions of Movie Maker and Photo Gallery for Windows 7 and Windows 8. Details about the new features in Movie Maker and Photo Gallery are available in the Windows Experience Blog, Introducing the New Windows Photo Gallery and Movie Maker.
Windows Essentials 2012 includes the new SkyDrive for Windows app as well as Windows Live Mail, Windows Live Family Safety, Windows Live Writer, Windows Live Messenger, Outlook Connector Pack and Windows Photo Gallery and Windows Movie Maker. Windows Live Mesh and SkyDrive
If you install Windows Essentials 2012, it is important to note that if you have Windows Live Mesh installed, it will automatically be removed if you install the new Movie Maker or Photo Gallery. In its place Microsoft SkyDrive will be installed. Microsoft has specified that if the new Movie Maker and/or Photo Gallery in Windows Essentials 2012 are installed, you can not have Windows Live Mesh on the same PC.
In order to sync folders from the cloud to all of your PCs, it will then be necessary to install SkyDrive on all of your PCs or Macs. (Windows Live Mesh continues to be available from the Download Center: Windows Live Essentials.)

My school gives us server 2012 standard for free. I am wondering if it's possible to install it as 2012 essentials with the same features as essentials kind of like how win pro had every thing home had. Or are the features of server essentials not included in standard? (Features like full pc back up and the dashboard like whs 2011)
 

Answer:can you setup server 2012 standard as 2012 essentials?

Different media for the install, Server Standard and Datacenter use the same media. Essentials has it's own install disk and Foundation and Storage Server share the same media.

I migrated an office from 2003 to 2012 Essentials.

I admin'd the box fine setting it up at home with RDS and installed REALVNC on it. Everything was groovy.

Took it to the office and migrated all the workstations to this new domain controller, migrated profiles, etc, moved files, remapped shares, did scripts, etc. Everything went very smooth.

I get home and cannot get to the box thru the VPN as I always did with the 2003 server. Can't ping it, get to it with RDS, VNC, nothing. Can't get to any of the workstations either. I'm thinkin' ohhh crap, I'm in trouble Monday morning, this office is down hard and dead!

Nope, nothing, no calls. I send an email to ask the Doctor if they turned everything off and he said no, everything is working fine.

I am not interested particularly in the web admin access, that I most likely disabled because I can't reach it either. But it looks interesting and I might re-enable it.

But mainly, how do I get RDS and VNC access back? This is a remote site and I'd like to know before I drive 100 miles round trip.
 

Answer:Windows 2012 Essentials Question

Windows firewall?
Possibly it (properly) detected the new network when taken to the office, but set itself to Public network instead of Work or Home?

We had that happen once here, except it was when someone did RDP in. The Network Detection dialog popped up, but he ignored the box; Windows presumably then selected Public network and blocked pretty much all inbound connectivity.
Though that did block literally all inbound connections.

Program is a work of art, added all my accounts with just a couple of clicks, personal imap accounts, microsoft accounts and even my yahoo pop account (needs to be yahoo mail plus account, which i have for like $20 a year).

Each account has its own set of folders and each account can be given a color, the ribbon menus on top are great and offer multiple options for your emails.

Reader can be completely customized with many different views, custom column headers, etc.

Can all this be synced to other accounts, and devices who knows, I really am not into that so for me this is the perfect email app

I reset my computer because Windows Live Mail was not connecting to the internet and was getting an error message saying that I have used the wrong password. Now, I still can't use WL Mail and Windows Essentials is still "installing" for the last several days. Consequently, I can't uninstall WL Mail or Windows Essentials or fix them. In addition, I think, because WLE is not installed officially, I can't see my saved videos and still get the same error message when I try to connect to WL Mail...error 0x80280006. I tried to reset my WL Mail password to no avail.
BTW, I'm using Windows 10 and maybe it is partly to blame?
I want to be able to use WL Mail and see my videos, but I don't know how. Please help. Thanks.

I'm trying to help a friend to get their Windows Server 2012 Essentials setup up in their small business.

Server is operational, but I'm having issues connecting PCs to it...

I'm able to get to the server page by going to http://(servername)\connect
I can download the connector software, when I run it it finds the server it ask for user name and password.

After entering info it tries to connect for 20-60 seconds and fails with:

Cannot coonect this computer to the network
The Server is not available. Try connecting this computer again, or for more information, see troubleshooting connecting computers to the server.

any idea what could be causing?

could this be caused by network issues? They are using ATT DSL for internet access, with a ATT model, that is referred to as "gateway.pace.com"

They also have a zyxel smart switch, it seems that both ATT DSL and Zyxel switch are acting as DHCP, and both might be issuing IP addresses.

Another thing I noticed that they are using IP phones for all office phones.
All PCs are connected to the network with an IP phone as a device in the middle, that seems be slowing down the phones from normal gigabit to 10/100 only.

Any help would be grateful.

How do i gain permission to delete the registry
 

Answer:Registry Problem in Windows Server 2012 essentials

what do you mean by "added my computer into the server" as it's not clear what you did.
and clarify "there is no user found on the permission for drop box"
it should list local accounts and possibly the SID of a deleted domain user (if you mean you added your computer to the domain that Server 2012 Essentials creates)

Hi

Having upgraded to Windows 8 Pro 64 bit, I have discovered that I have limited control of my options, in Windows Live Mail (Essentials 2012 version)!

Prior to the upgrade, and with the 2011 version of WLM, I was able, through the Options facility to select certain actions, such as:

"Send/Receive on Start up!
and
Delete messages from the deleted folder on close down!

The Options Tab, which allowed these choices, was on the tool bar, at the top of the window, just below, and just to the left of the Close Window X!

This facility does not appear on the current 2012 version!

I would appreciate any advice on this matter

At the moment, I have to manually select Send/Receive, and manually delete old messages

Hi Theo, When first installing W8 I noticed the 'Tile' for Windows Live Mail in 'all apps'. Didn't take much notice as don't use Live Mail which in W7 & W8 was an integral part of Messenger. However to use Messenger you had to create a Live Mail/Hotmail a/c.
Well having become more settled with what I need in W8 I thought I'd have a look at the 'Windows Live Mail' and so pinned the tile to Start & Desktop. I just opened it today and found it has the new UI of the Ribbon Type which makes it very flexible and perhaps more attractive to future use by me. I also noticed it had the 'Options' you require, which you will find on the Toolbar when you create a new message. Hope this helps.

We have an important LOB application (QuickBooks 2018) that requires that requires Internet Explorer 11 for QB to operate correctly.  Unfortunately our server runs Windows Server 2012 Essentials as an operating system (not R2).  From reviewing
various Microsoft documents, I realize that IE 11 is not supported on Server 2012.  However, we need to be able to run QuickBooks, which requires that version of IE.  Upgrading the server OS to 2012 R2 would take hours, because there is no in-place
upgrade option.  We would have to reinstall and configure the OS again from scratch.
Is there anything we can do to resolve this problem?
Thanks for any assistance you can offer.

Wow- what a mess this is. You know, the Win8 love/hate thing- desktop OS vs. Tablet... I get it. Trying to make things easier for Joe Average user. No Problem. But this stupified, dumbed-down interface on Essentials is a joke. They have emasculated Small Business Server. I've been deploying SBS since the old 4.5 days. It evolved into what a lot of us feel was the best- 2011. Great product, served a HUGE need, and by 2011 they really fixed most everything that was ever wrong with it.

So of course, MS has to f**k it up. First, by removing Exchange, then by applying this moronic Win8 interface... to a server! It's truly pathetic. It has been sad to watch MS abandon the small business community- both its customers and the people like us who support it. This one is the worst yet.
 

Answer:2012 Essentials rant

They arn't abandoning them per say, just making the poor decision of trying to force everyone to hosted exchange and office 365.

SBS2011 was a good product and had its place in deployments, I tried to stay away from it though, I honestly don't like small companies having Exchange servers in their office.

Here's a new one for ya.

I have 2 accounts: admin & limited. I use the limited.

Upgraded from live essentials 2011 to essentials 2012. had mesh, skydrive, photo gallery/movie maker, and outlook hotmail connector.

The upgrade updated skydrive, outlook connector, and photogallery/movie maker, and removed mesh, as to be expected.

logged into limited account to access photo gallery and got this:


Went back to admin account and repaired it. It mentioned that a file corruption was preventing the repair. So I uninstalled it, reinstalled it, restarted, logged into admin, and accessed photo gallery. Worked fine.

Went into limited account again with the same error. It does eventually start up, but you have to click OK 5 times to make the error disappear.

If someone knows a fix, let me know. I'll keep trying to work it through, and I'll post what I find.

This is the 'corrupt profile error' when I try to repair:

Answer:Essentials 2012 error

Hi,
I have uninstalled windows essentials from my windows 7. I tried re-installing it but it showed that windows essentials is already installed. I searched everywhere on my pc but it does not appear nor its components.
I tried to install it through windows updats ( as optional) the same happened. It says that installation is done but nothing appears. When \i tried to choose components to install from windows essentials, all components appear as installed.

What can I do in this case? I tried everything but none worked.

Answer:Installing Windows Essentials

Download and clean your HD with ccleaner. This will remove all remanants of the prior install. Untick all registry cleaning.

See if you can install in safe mode. If not just install

If this does not work, try to go back with System Restore to before the first install.

I've removed all PCIE cards, unplugged hard drives, and updated the BIOS to the latest version.

I verified the chksum of the WSE2012 against Technet so i know my download is good.

I burned the ISO to DVD & Flash drive.

Clients should be getting the DNS from the server, especially if you want clients to connect/use the server, especially for logons, policies, etc.
Im guessing the .254.254 is a uverse/att device?
Turn off the DHCP on the .254 device *or* add your current router into the DMZ type zone
Server should be sending out DHCP info
192.168.1.4 as DNS
192.168.254.254 as gateway (or is you can do the DMZ mode use 192.168.1.1)

Ok so I have been reading up here on rants and different things on the storage spaces piece...

I went from WHS v1 to WHS2011 now but am not running any backups or duplication or anything....

I am now running WHS2012E (if you will)...on a machine to make sure it all looks good. But I only have 1 drive in it at the moment..

so in my ESX 5.5i environment I installed it then added 2 drives...

just for confirmation....

what is the mimimum size drive to use for the OS???
I have a 1tb in there and was going to get 2 x 3tb drives.. and only use them.
but V1 would allow you to duplicate data that way but the new WHS2012E does not.
seems drive pool must be 2 seperate drives in addition to the OS drive so it makes no sense why wyou would want a 3tb OS drive...
(verified this by more googling... hah)
am I missing something here?

I am thinking 250gb or 320gb drive for OS (have them already)
3 x 1tb drive in a pool then mirrored x1 (as I have them too) - if that is what it is called...

I dont need 2 copies of this and 3 copies of that.. raid 5 for this and all that...

I have pics, movies, data files that are shared out to computers in the house... I just want to make sure if a drive goes I can get all my data back....

recommendations?

music share

I've just installed an SSD in place of the HDD on my wife's PC and am re-installing the applications on her 64-bit Windows 7 Pro system. The latest application I have put back is Windows Essentials 2012. The Windows Live Mail element of this doesn't work correctly. Whereas on my system the action display bar (Home / Folders / View Accounts) is there all the time, on her system it only shows when you click on the appropriate tab - and then it covers up the top few messages.
In addition, every time you start it up, it has to recover the Windows Live Mail database. I have removed / re-installed the program once already, but whatever is causing the problem, did not go on the re-install.
Suggestions as to fix it, would be most welcome. Thanks.

Answer:Windows Live Mail 2012 screen & database errors

I take it you tried add remove and clicked on Windows Essentials 2012 and pressed repair.
Normaly you have the option of pressing repair if so do that. other times it asks you if you want to delete it. You usually have to click on delete and another box should open saying do you want to delete or repair.
It will then ask what part you want to repair just click on Mail.

I keep getting a pop up icon telling me that updates for Windows Essentials are available, but when I download these a window appears with errors 0x80070643 and 0x80040609.
These seem to mean that the updates cannot be installed because Windows Firewall is turned off - I use Norton Internet Security firewall, and even if I turn this off I cannot find a way to turn on the Windows firewall, so I hope that someone has an answer to this problem.
I do not want to uninstall Norton Internet Security just to enable the Windows firewall, even just for a few minutes.

Answer:Windows Essentials updates not installing

Take a read here Installation Error
I don't use MSE but I would suggest you uninstall and reinstall MSE using one of the programs suggested in this link.
I don't use Norton either, I use AVG Full Internet Security - when installing this it disables the Windows firewall. I would think this would be the same with Norton. Then if you were to uninstall your 3rd party security things should revert automatically to Windows firewall. In my opinion you shouldn't have to turn it on.
If you disable your Norton firewall and it doesn't revert to Windows firewall then take a look here Windows Firewall on/Off
But try the uninstall/reinstall of MSE first and that hopefully should cure the "updates" problem.

I want to try Windows Photo Gallery, but the installation doesn't give an option of an alternative Drive. My 'C' drive is a 120GB SSD, but I would prefer to install it on drive 'D' which is a 1TB HDD. In this months PCA page 114, Roland Waddilove suggests using symbolic Links with a program called SymMover to move the program files to 'D' leaving just a link on 'C'. Is this the only viable solution?

Answer:Installing Windows Essentials on a different drive

I've made a bit of a cock-up here. Although I don't have all of 'Essentials', I do have Photo Gallery installed. I was reading an article that said Photo Gallery wasn't installed by default, then realised I had it. However, I then checked my previous posts and remembered I'd already asked a question about this program. Annoyingly, it wants to upload every image from my phone, including online stuff, be it sky sports images, argos, amazon, whatever, so I stopped using it. Instead, I've been using Picasa3, which only uploads from my phone's gallery (HTC One Mini) without duplicating. Windows Photo Gallery has all the pics that Picasa3 has so I'm seriously thinking of uninstalling the Windows Essentials stuff, and free up some space on my SSD. Any problems with this idea?

I've reached the end of my limited networking knowledge. Here's the deal:

- I have my home server running Windows Server Essentials 2012. Its primary function is backups of my various computers.
- My ISP is ATT Uverse, which provides a modem/router/gateway. It sucks teh ballz, so I set into bridge mode and set up a Netgear Nighthawk behind it. ALL devices are connected to the Nighthawk.
- I want to set up the server for remote access so that family can grab pictures and files remotely, and so I can do the same.
- I followed the instructions and the auto setup (I had to forward ports 80 and 443 manually, but that's done), and from the server's perspective, it says it is set up:



And now the problem:
When I try to access the sever from INSIDE the network, it loads the login page no problem. BUT, when I do so from the outside, the server sends no data, nothing loads.
Am I missing a setting on the bridged gateway?

I don't do these posts (Hey look at me, I'm awesome!!!), but this one needed to be made...
I am a graduate of both WHS v1 and 2011. I liked both, missed drive extender, and loathed my ATT Gateway as a result. That said, they always backed up on time, and the way I wanted, with no issues (until Drive Bender decided to bork everything and my Windows 8 laptop refused to play nice with WHS2011).

Well, my server needed an upgrade anyway, so I decided to gut it (mostly) and start over with the new Server Essentials 2012. (SE2012 from here on)

Old Specs: Core 2 Duo E4400, 2gb DDR2, Some s775 Asus board, and a 9800GT PE + a 2TB WD Green.

New Specs: AMD A6-3650, 4GB DDR3, an MSI A55m-P33, an Intel 120gb SSD for the OS, and I added two more WD Green 2TB drives (total 6tb).

I cannot emphasize it enough how easy the setup was. Drivers installed with no issues, straight from the mobo disk, and then updated through windows update. Unlike with my two WHS installs, I didn't have to trick them into thinking it wasn't a server OS etc. Getting DriveBender back in the form of storage pools was awesome, and again, set up with no issues whatsoever including built in duplication. The entire process, hardware switch included, took MAYBE 2 hours. That includes setting up a domain on the network with SE2012.

So, compared to my previous server OS experience, I also like the new dashboard. It's a bit easier to work with and makes a little more sense, though some of the dire... Read more

I swapped out the HDD on my wife's laptop with a new SSD, and did a fresh install of Windows 7.

My wife liked the live mail, and the photo viewer, and had the 2009 version on the old system, I think.

Anyway......you can only install the new Windows Essentials 2012, or it's individual components....or so I thought.

I tried doing that, and first it hung on the "install", until I got fed up and cancelled. A couple more attempts, and it said it couldn't install mail, movie maker and photo viewer. I tried the offline installer, tried finding an older version....with no luck.

It would keep installing OneDrive though, if I tried to install the entire suite.

One thing I found out is, that if there are any components/program files from previous versions, it won't install, or so I read. If I go to C:\Program files, and/or C:\Program files(x86), there are folders for Live essentials components. Obviously it came with the fresh Windows 7. I'm pretty sure that is the reason, but if I simply try to right click and delete those folders, it tells me I need permission from TrustedInstaller to make changes to the folders.

It's ridiculous.

Any help/feedback GREATLY appreciated.

Thanks in advance!

Sorry I call bogus. No way in H E double hockey sticks that Norton gets 4.5 stars and MBAM gets 3. Not to mention they use an old outdated version of MBAM. They compare version 1.51 when version 1.62 has been out for a while now. That just shows that PCMag doesnt want to step on their advertisers or people who pay them money for good reviews. Norton has done this in the past with PCMag and everyone knows it. They had the most adverts in the published mag and they still get favored on their online only mag now.

Not to even mention the fact they dont even test MSE at all. Funny how they test so many, but yet they dont test the one from the OS Developers themselves. PCMag can take a long walk off a short pier. They are only padding the ego of the people who write them checks. They are not nor will they ever be a publication to read if you want real results and feedback. They only care about who lines their pockets.

the error says "to run this application you must first install one of the following versions of  the .net framework v4.0.30319
contact your application publisher for insructions about obtaining the appropriate versions of .net framework"


but i already installed .net framework 4 client profile and also .net framework 4 extended
please help in this regard.

Answer:I always get .net framework error v 4.0.30319 when I try installing windows essentials.

Hi,

Maybe the .NET Framework 4.0 is not installed correctly or corrupted. I suggest you can try Verification Tool to verify .NET 4.0 on the machine if it has been installed. If it is not
installed, please try to download and install it to support your application.


Also, you can refer to
NET Framework V. 4.0.30319


Hope this helps.

I have been running XP and then Windows 7 on my iMac for some years but had to reboot when moving between windows and Mac.
Now that I have the latest iMac I have installed XP, using Parallels and it works fine, with both systems running simultaneously on adjacent monitors. Brilliant!
However, a Windows 8 upgrade, bought from Amazon, is proving difficult to activate. I thought that this may be because the XP is Sevice Pack 2 instead of SP3. Having difficulty getting SP3, I followed a video on Youtube which took me, via Regedit, to "CSD version" and changing 200 t0 300.
XP now appears to be SP3 but is it really? I haven't downloaded anything, just changed a number.
Is the Youtuber correct or is he taking the Mickey?
Any advice please?

No, just changing one number will not actually make it SP3.

My new laptop has never recorded sound for SKYPE Video Messaging.
Bit annoying, as Skype video calls and other similar apps, no problems with microphones/sound etc.

Since downloading Windows Essential 2012 I have no sound for any videos that previously worked fine. Specifically I wanted to use Movie Maker. Do I need an updated sound card?

I have deinstalled and reinstalled and it is the same story every time.
NO SOUND.

Any help appreciated thanks.

I recently did a clean install of Windows 7. All updates except for Silverlight, and 5 optional updates. Today when browsing the internet and watching some flash video, I got one of those pages that cant close. I did a scan on the temporary internet files and Microsoft Security Essentials found a virus and deleated the file. I also sent info to Microsoft. Everything seemed okay except suddenly All video, weather in a wab page or on windows media player whould stop about a third of the way through, and again every so often untill I pressed play again. And in a web page It would stop buffering the file as if it were done and I whould have to click ahead of the stopping point to get it to go. So I noticed that SQL server 2005( i thing it said lite edition), was installed. I did not install this. SO I uninstalld Flash, and Microsoft Essentials Movie maker, and SQL server dissapeerd on its own. Why does Essentils need SQL server to be installed and why dont they tell you that. It scarred the heck out of me. Anyways I havent had to do a system restore yet and everthing seems back to normal. Is there a way to install Movie maker without all this server connection stuff. Is there a free program anyone can recomend. One that will not cause problems or install other crap I dont want...

Answer:Had a issue after installing flash and Windows Essentials Movie maker

Did you install all of Essentials, or just Movie Maker? Photo Gallery is what requires SQL 2005, but it says not on Windows 7



   Note
For Photo Gallery: SQL 2005 Compact Edition and Windows Imaging Codecs.*

*Not required when installing on Windows 7 or Windows Vista.
Windows Live Essentials system requirements - Windows Help

However, I found this:






Quote:
When you have downloaded the package install the features that you want to use on a test computer. When the installation has finished you will see that some of the programs have dependencies to each other. To get Movie Maker to work you have to have Photo Gallery installed. And to get Photo Gallery to work you need Microsoft SQL 2005 Compact edition. So don’t scratch your head to much when you see that Photo Gallery is installed even though you just selected Movie Maker

I've had hell of a time install Windows Live Essentials on XP. I have the problem narrowed down to the Photo Gallery Live component. When the PhotoLibary.msi goes it run in gets the "0x80070641 The Windows Installer Service could not be accessed. This can occur if you are running Windows in safe mode, or if the Windows Installer is not correctly installed. Contact your support personnel for assistance." I have Windows Installer 4.5 installed and have tried reinstalling it with no help.

Answer:Windows Defender does not start after installing Microsoft Security Essentials

Hi, Dick Quinn.
Welcome to The Windows Club.
If you installed Microsoft Security Essentials (MSE), it includes the anti-spyware engine of Windows Defender. Thus, Windows Defender is turned of with the installation.

I do not know or write my topic, it will move if necessary.
So here is my problem.

I just bought a laptop with windows 8 install, but I want to install Windows Server 2012.
I boot on my dvd all goes well, then I click install and then he told me the key was not valid.
But I did not enter a key.

When I reinstall windows 8 I give no key and he did not ask in the property and after he told me that windows is activated.

I understand anything the key or it will scan??
I how little he turns to put me key?

Thank you in advance

Answer:Satellite P850-31M - key not valid installing Windows Server 2012

Sorry but I?m confused.

If you have purchased the Windows Server 2012 license, then you have received also an serial key.
You have to use such key to for activation.

Regarding Win 8:
I assume Win 8 was preinstalled.
In such case you have to create a recover disk BEFORE installing another system?
You did not get any Win 8 disk because there was a possibility to create a recovery disk and the recovery disk contains an Win 8 which is activated.

Sais here, Install more than one operating system (multiboot) - Windows Help

I should install the older operating system first, windows 7, to run a duel boot with windows 2012 server.

But I am already running 2012 server and would like to just install windows 7 to it. Surely it will work.

I was going to shrink my c volume to create a new partition within my c hard drive and install windows 7 to that.

Or I could just install it to another drive, which I'd prefer not to do. Any advice regarding possibility of doing this?

I presume this is similar to installing windows 8 first and then wanting to install windows 7 afterwards as a duel boot.

Please advise further, cheers

Answer:My AutoCAD 2012 no longer opens files after installing windows 10. Are they compatible?

Based on experience, certain "specialized" software may not be fully compatible with Windows 10 even if they do not appear as an incompatibility prior to the upgrade. In my case, I had to wait for an update to my computational chemistry software for it to be compatible with Windows 10 before upgrading my work station to Windows 10.
Contact the supplier of AutoCAD and confirm/check with them if that version is compatible with Windows 10 (chances are it is not) - or if they have a solution/patch that will make it run in Windows 10.

While installing Windows 98 on a new system, I receive an error message when NDIS attempts to load and initialize as follows:
While initializing device NDIS: Windows protection error.

Microsoft's KB Article 312108 addresses this issue (for CPU's faster than 2.1GHz) and says there is a supported fix, but, when I attempt to follow the links, to Microsoft OnLine support, to obtain the fix/patch I am told that the product ID number is not supported for the country I am in (USA). The Retail version of Windows 98 box says it is for distribution in USA & Canada only.

Does anyone know where I can obtain the necessary fix/patch to overcome this problem?

Also, are there going to be more fixes/patchs that I will need to bring this system up?

The system is going to be used primarily for gaming.

System specs:
MSI 865PE Neo2-LS motherboard.
Planning on using the on board Ethernet and USB ports. Pentium 4C - 2.8GHz (800MHz FSB)
512MB DDR 400 RAM

Answer:Errors while installing Windows 98

As the article says, you should phone/email Microsoft to get the patch:

But if for some reason that is not possible for you, and you don't mind accepting files from complete strangers, then here you go:

For more patches you can alwasy visit Windows Update, but you can also look here:

My recommendation would be to dump Win98 and use Win2k/XP instead.

Greetings,

I have been trying to solve this issue on my own for months now, and i have gotten to the point that i believe the only thing i can do to correct this issue is to wipe my system clean and reinstall Windows 8.1(64bit). I hope someone here can help.

The 2 updates i am having issues with are the following:

KB2990967 and KB3035583

Both updates while using Windows Updates show that they install successfully, but they do not actually install. Windows Update then shows the updates again and allows me to attempt to install them again. The updates never show up in Add/Remove as Installed Updates.

Attempting to install KB2990967 manually says that it installs without issue and with no errors in Windows Setup Logs, but again, doesn't add the update to Add/Remove and any attempt to reinstall it manually allows the install to attempt instead of returning the normal error for already installed updates.

I'm left to think the issue is related to corruption in my system registry, either an incorrect GUID or a permissions issue.

DISM.exe /Online /Cleanup-image /Restorehealth
and
sfc /scannow

have been ran multiple times on this system.

SFC currently doesn't find any integrity violations, although it had in the past and repaired them.
DISM always reports "The restore operation completed successfully. The component store corruption was repaired.
The operation completed successfully."

Unless you plan on installing Windows 10 on this machine, you don't need KB3035583 - simply Hide it.

Hello All,

I was recently asked by a friend to see if I could fix up his laptop that has been getting a BSOD. After playing around with it for a while i came to the conclusion that it was a bad HDD. So I found a HDD for it installed it into the laptop then finally got the recovery Discs sent from Dell. Well they ended up sending us the wrong disc. They had sent a Windows XP Professional disc but the laptop is Windows XP Home Edition. So I tried to install it anyway but kept getting a different error every time I put in the disc. I was getting errors just after the point when you get the Blue screen that says at the bottom things like "Installing 3d party SCSI Drivers, etc...

So at this point I assumed that it was just the disc. So we sent the disc back to Dell and they sent us the correct "Windows XP Home Edition" disc. So after trying to install that I am still getting errors every time I try to install Windows. The strange thing is, is that it's a different error every time I try the install, and haven't seen the same error twice...

So I thought maybe it was a problem with the RAM so I ran MemTest86 on the RAM and all tests passed 100%. Not really sure where else to go from here.

Below are some of the errors I saw when trying the install. I didn't write down everyone, but here are a few that I saw. Also, like I was saying above, I never saw the same error twice.

Since upgrading to Windows 10 from Windows 7, I have experienced BSOD (or in Windows 10's case, sad face) errors with increasing frequency, to the point that I am considering reverting back to Windows 7.

What happens? (one of the following):
Computer screen/everything freezes and emits a hum/buzzing noise; orBlue sad face screen appears identifying unspecified error, indicating that the computer will reboot (but nothing happens); orBlue sad face screen appears identifying IRQ-Not_Equal error, indicating that the computer will reboot (but nothing happens); orBlue sad face screen appears identifying (something like) Execute-Non-Execute error, indicating that the computer will reboot (but nothing happens).

I am then forced to turn the power bar off and then back on in order to restart the computer.

In my own (initial) attempts to address this, I did check for a memory problem (answer: no) and I updated my graphics driver. The problem has persisted - and has possibly become more frequent.

As directed, I downloaded and ran the diagnostic program. The resulting file is attached.

Any help fixing this would be MUCH appreciated. I would prefer not to revert to Windows 7 OR buy a new computer (although it might be time to do do...)
