How to identify Windows version by file version?

Question: How to identify Windows version by file version?

I have a bunch of OS backups using ghost and I can use ghost explorer to view the image files. Unfortunately I didn't make details on what OS version was installed at the time, just dates the images were taken.

How can I find if these images were from Vista or Windows 7 by just looking at the contents of the image, without actually restoring the image?

Preferred Solution: How to identify Windows version by file version?

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: How to identify Windows version by file version?

did you install IE8 on your Vista install?
otherwise it comes default with IE7, and Win7 comes with IE8.

so you could use the file version of iexplore.exe, if you left IE7 on the Vista install.

possibly bootmgr file might be different file versions.

I am using windows 7 64 bit and after reformattin my computer,i drag my files from my external hard disk into my laptop.the error stated make sure i am using 32 or 64 bit and i am using that.how do i solve this?

Answer:The version of this file is not compatible with the version of windows you are runnin

Hi Haruki92,

What files are you trying to transfer? Regular files (documents, photos etc) should be fine to just drag over. However some applications are not able to run in a 64-bit environment.

Please post exactly what you're transferring and a screenshot if possible.

I'm trying to install some applications on a Lenovo ideapad with windows 7 home premium, 64-bit, SP1. I'm getting the following error - "The version of this file is not compatible with the the version of windows you're running." I've installed all of these specific applications (e.g. RealPlayer, Logmein, Windows 2007 Compatibility Pck File Format Converter) and many other 32-bit apps on other Windows 7 64-bit machines, including 2 other Lenovo laptops with the exact same specs, purchased at the same time, with absolutely no issue.

I thought maybe it was some kind of virus so I reformattted the laptop and I'm still getting the same issue. It's VERY frustrating. I've searched everywhere and don't see any answers. Does anyone have any idea why this is happening or how to correct it?

According to the MSDN site :-When a 16-bit installer or application is launched, the following error message is displayed:
The version of this file is not compatible with the version of Windows you're running. Check your computer's system information to see whether you need an x86 (32-bit) or x64 (64-bit) version of the program, and then contact the software publisher.I have an application (SPFPC V4.0) which I used to run with no problem on XP SP2.
But when I try it on my Vista Business 64 bit system I get that message. I have tried all of the compatibility options with no success.

Maybe I am being simplistic, but I would think that if it runs OK on XP SP2 then it probably isn't a 16 bit application.

Any ideas anyone.

Answer:the version of WindowsThe version of this file is not compatible with you're running

but I would think that if it runs OK on XP SP2 then it probably isn't a 16 bit application.



XP supports 16 bit applications, so there is no sound basis for your belief.

I built a new pc a month ago and have been running Win7 RC1 on it for the time being. Obviously Win7 is coming out next week so I am getting ready to purchase the full version. I could buy the Retail version of Win7 Home Premium 64-bit for $199, or the System Builders version for $99 on newegg.

Can anybody go ahead and buy the System Builders version, or is that restricted to actual pc resellers? Would newegg ask me for a resellers license or something if I try to order it? I built the pc, don't need MS support for it, and will only ever use that copy of Win7 on that pc. I just hate spending twice as much money for the Retail version if legally I can buy and use the System Builders version for half the price. Or am I better off paying more money for the Retail version?

Also, if I can buy the System Builders version, I assume it will come with the install dvd as well as install key? Plus, with that, I can install that copy on just this pc as many times as I want without limitations, correct? Meaning, I usually format and reload windows on a pc twice a year so over 4-5 years I will be reinstalling that copy of windows on the same pc 8-10 approx over the years.
 

Answer:Buying full version of Windows7: Retail version or System Builders version?

Anyone can buy an OEM license. They're cheaper because they don't include Microsoft support. You are your support. OEM licenses are tied to the hardware on which they're installed. Technically you are prohibited from installing an OEM copy on a completely different system, though many people will do this and successfully activate their copy by saying their motherboard failed and had to be replaced, etc.

Hello.

I want to update the BIOS on my BE6-2 Motherboard, but I don't know which version of th BE6-2 Mobo I have? Can anybody help?

Also, how do I backup and restore the BIOS I already have? You know just in case!!
 

Answer:BE6-II MOBO+How do identify which version I have?

Since there are two different key versions (One is the version 1.0x series,the other one is the
version 1.2 and newer series), it's very important to know how to recognize which mainboard
version you have before upgrading your board's BIOS.How can you tell? There are three ways:
The first way:
You can find the version number on a white sticker on the side of the last ISA slot, with a
string of characters like ""BE6 II-OK V1.0X"".
The second way:
You can read the last two letters on the bottom right of the first
boot-up screen (with the "Energy Star" logo) to recognize what the BIOS ID number you have.
Comparing this ID to the list below will tell you which version
you have.
The third way:
You may check to see whether or not your BE6 II has the HPT 370 chip on board.

**Confusion** - I installed a new GPU (Nvidia 9800 GT) about a month ago and it works great but I wanted to see if I had the latest driver, so I went to device manager > display adapter > properties and jotted down my driver version number, 7.15.11.8122. I then went to Nvidia and the latest driver for my adapter is 182.50, so I downloaded it. After downloading, I moused over the new driver and it was named file version 4.0.100.1190!

I have a question, what is the difference between file version and product version of software?
 

Answer:Product version and file version

Good question. I have always taken the difference to be this: The "Product version" is the difference between, lets say, Windows XP home and Windows XP Professional, while a "File version" would refer to a change or revision in a particular part of an entire product.

I installed a Japanese version of windows 10 but then bought an English version and installed that after finding all the menus could not be changed to English during the install.
My question is does the English version overwrite the JP version or are files left on the SSD using up space?
Also in the end I returned the English version cause I found you can add a language pack to the JP version. The problem with this is that if you get a blue screen the Windows messages are in Japanese. So now unless I can change this I'm going to go back to an English version of Windows 10.

Alright, I thought I had the process nailed down, but I'm not having much luck.

I have a new laptop with Windows 7 Home Premium 32 bit version coming tomorrow. It comes with 4GB of RAM and Windows 7 seems like the first OS that has wide support for the 64 bit version, please correct me if I'm wrong. So I thought I'd upgrade to 64 bit since everyone tells me I can do so, legally, for free, with the key on the sticker on the bottom of the laptop.

So I planned to download the ISO via Bit Torrent and check the hash, as somebody recommended. I installed MD5Summer.

But I'm stuck because I can't seem to find the Hash Checksums for W7 HP 64. Can anybody provide me a link to them on MS's site, or similar?

Anybody got a good BT link to save me from searching myself? I didn't see any that looked like the right version on Demonoid. What should my search term be? "Windows 7 OEM 64"?

I've never installed Windows 7, does the procedure differ from XP? I've installed XP hundreds of times.

What's the best way to verify performance of my new laptop? Free benchmarking program? Website with common benchmarks? I'd like to see if the OS upgrade actually benefits the benchmarks.

Any and all advice is appreciated.

Set colOperatingSystems = objWMIService.ExecQuery _

For Each objOperatingSystem in colOperatingSystems
   Wscript.Echo objOperatingSystem.Caption & " " & _
       objOperatingSystem.Version
Next     If you parse objOperatingSystem.Version you can extract the info you need.      OR with a .bat fileCode: [Select]@echo off

for /f "tokens=1-4" %%i in (dummy.txt) do (if %%k=="XP" whatever

Legacy Access 2000 runtime application installed on Windows 8. All fine and dandy except when I tried to install an update of the application. The update is automatic, the back end mdb is restructured and then the front-end mde is replaced and linked to the back end mdb. But when it came time to run the new version, the old version of the mde kept getting executed instead. At first I thought there was a problem with the install, but all checked out okay. Then I manually performed the update, and manually replaced the mde with the new version. No matter what I did or re-did, the shortcut used to open Access and run the mde kept executing the old version.

I then deleted the mde file. Opening the shortcut STILL executed the old version of the mde, even though it was now in the recycle bin!

I copied the new mde into the folder. Opening the shortcut STILL executed the old version of the mde!

I renamed the mde, then changed the shortcut to use the new mde filename. FINALLY now the new version executed! I renamed the mde back to its original name, changed the shortcut accordingly, and all was finally OK.

Hello everybody! I need your help. I wanna reinstall windows7 home premium but I can't find where I can download the iso file to burn it on a disc. Can you tell me what I can do? Also, I asked to a microsoft technician but he told me that they can't help me because my license is OEM and he told me that I had to contact with DELL to get the iso file for my laptop. I'm using a DELL N5010. Please, help me because I wanna get Windows 10.

Answer:I am looking for the iso file of Windows 7 Home Premium OEM version

Hi Marin
Windows has stopped providing the iso image to the general public for some reason best know to them. but i guess this conversation will help you since you you already have the license

Hi,

I have following 2 laptops with the mentioned details.

Notebook 1:-
(HP Pavilion dv2000)
OS: Windows XP professional Version 2002 Service pack 2
Local Area Connection Device Name: Intel(R) PRO/100 VE Network Connection
Notebook 2:-
(HP Pavilion tx2000)
OS: Windows Vista Home Premium
Local Area Connection Device Name: NVIDIA nForce Networking Controller

I don't have any kind of internet connectivity.
My only purpose is to share my files in both of these notebooks between each other.
How can I achieve this? I tried googling this but could not found anything desired.

I am totally novice to networking.So if possible provide me some detailed steps to set up the desired networking and what all will be required to set up the same.

Also when I execute "ipconfig" command on any of the above mentioned machines I get the message "media disconnected".Can anybody explain me the reason behind this?
Thanks in advance.

Jignesh
 

Answer:Enabling File sharing between two laptops having different version of Windows

"Media disconnected" means your either network interface devices are turned off or if on, nothing is plugged into the ethernet port and/or your wireless card is not connected to a network.

It seems I am experiencing a number of problems with windows media player as it pertains to the DAW files which I am recording on and the inability of WMP to play and then record tose files to burn a disc on windows E. This is especially true with WAV
and MP3 formats which are the most widely used. I don't understand why windows would make an application that hardly communicates with any other industry standard. My particular problem is with Presonus, but I am sure this is a widespread problem. Is ther
any other application you can suggest that wil;l communicate seemlessly with DAWs that I can utilize?

Okay so, I don't know if this matters but, I'm currently running my system in safe-mode with networking so it wont reboot on me.

So, a few days ago, in the middle of watching Red Riding Hood, my computer rebooted. Since then, it's gotten to the point where the computer reboots every few minutes, any time I log on and try to run anything, be it virus scans or whatever. And if I don't try to run anything, it will work for awhile then freeze up at which point I'll have to do a hard reboot. In safe mode, I've run both my virus programs, McAfee and Malwarebytes. Neither come up with any viruses. However, when I run CCleaner, it seems to come up with a couple of windows related issues, which it says it fixes but, it doesn't solve my issue.

So figuring windows got corrupted somehow, I wanted to reinstall. But BIOS doesn't recognize my dvd rom.

Hello,Few days ago I run Lenovo software update utility. There was an update available for the dolby audio driver and I applied it. Since then every time I reboot the computer the dolby audio application fails to start (it is in the start up). The message displayed is "The current Dolby audio driver version is 7.2.8000.14 and the software application expects driver version 7.2.7000.7. Please install a valid driver and software application combination." There is no available download for the application in the support section of Lenovo's website. This problem caused some applications to stop working (e.g. Spotify reports an error with the sound card and fails to play music).Please, advice. Thank you.

Is there a difference between the MSDN subscription version of Vista Ultimate and the Retail version that would cause the Virtual Server2005 R2 SP1 installation to fail on a PC upgraded from Home Premium (retail version) to Ultimate (MSDN subscription version)?

I have a Vista x64 Home Premium that came loaded with software from the manufacturer that I would lose if I were to overwrite it by a new installation from my MSDN subscription version of Vista Ultimate.

If I install Vista Ultimate as a brand new installation, Virtual Server installation works fine.

But if I install Virtual Server 2005 R2 SP1 after I upgraded Vista Home Premium to Vista Ultimate, I get the following error at the last phase of the installation: ?Windows Installer has stopped working? and then it sends to Microsoft the attached 3 files.

I even tried Windows Installer 4.5 but it did not work either:

Or Duel boot UK OSWin7 leaving the Danish version OS Win7 on the system.

Firstly - Do you need to retain the Danish version? If not and you have the Win 7 install disk (UK version) Boot from that, format and do a FULL install. Then download and install the Service Packs bearing in mind that all software will have to be reinstalled.

If you already have the trial version of the Kaspersky product you want to buy, you can leave it installed and enter the licence key to activate it, simple as that. However, if you buy an edition different than the one you have in trial, then you'll need to uninstall the trial edition and install the edition you'll buy.

When you install a trial version of an AVG security product on your Windows PC you may not feel convinced to buy premium model. However, you may like to continue the use of free version. This is only possible when you uninstall the trial version and download the copy of the free antivirus program thereafter. The AVG Downgrader application helps you complete this process with ease. The program converts trial versions of AVG products into AVG Free. You can download the application from AVG's website under tools and diagnostic utilities section. You will need to restart the system to finalize the downgrade to AVG Free Antivirus.

I went to staples today and I was asking one of the employees there about the Windows 7 Upgrade version and he said that he tried both the upgrade version and the full version and said that the full version was faster does anyone else have reports of this? I'd like to save the $60 if possible but i'd like my computer to be as fast as it can be, even if that means spending a little extra.

EDIT: title should be Windows 7, not Microsoft 7.

Answer:Microsoft 7 upgrade version is slower than full version?

Buy the upgrade version, but do a "clean" installation. See this tutorial http://www.sevenforums.com/tutorials/1818-...-7-a.html?ltr=UI think someone was trying to get more money out of you.

So I bought what I thought what the full version of Windows 7 Pro online for the student discount for $65. I got it all installed and the activation key wouldn't work.

Long story short I got the upgrade version on accident. So I got that refunded and I'm about to just go buy Home Premium. I need to install it. Do I need to uninstall Pro before I install Home Premium? Or will it just get rid of it for me when I install it?

Answer:Got the wrong version installed. Need to install correct version

No need to uninstall. The new installer will clear the disk.

"Can I install an English version of Microsoft Windows Vista using the Japanese Microsoft Vista software that the retailer bundles with there PC's, or will I need to buy an English Version"? :confused

Also is there anything that I should be concerned about when buying a Japanese PC and using English?

My daughter's computer is not playing her games properly like it did when I first gave it to her.  The computer came with WinMe, I put upgrade version of XP Professional.  I am considering cleaning up some programs on the hard drive, just wondering if removing files from WinMe/98 would impact the operation of XP?  If so, is there a way to condense or compress them to save space, instead of just deleting them?Thanks

Answer:Upgrade version XP, need to delete all traces of previous version?

Without more info on how that machine is setup it would be guesswork at best...Are you saying that WinME is still installed on there along with XP ? ?Or are these older programs you re-installed after installing XP ? ?How much free space is on that hard drive ? ?

Hello;

Purchased a PC that was supposed to have English content. Turns-out certain apps are in Spanish, most of which I have been able to correct. My
biggest problem though is MS Internet Explorer 6. The browser is in Spanish, and while I was successfully able to download the English version, I get a program warning suggestion that while I could go ahead and install the IE6, I should remove the Spanish version first from "Add/Remove".

Since "Add/Remove" is part of the browser, it too is in Spanish.
When I go to remove the program, it doesn't offer the two options as its offered in the English version- "Remove or Cancel", but basically something that indicates (loose translation I think!) "Repair or " Replace" with a previous version (which I believe there was- in English, prior to the Spanish replacement but I'm not certain)

My question is, since there isn't a clear choice, should I attempt "Repair" or
"Restore-I don't want this to end-up a total reinstallation of W2K all because of a browser issue!

Any and all suggests would be genuinely appreciated- thank you!

I have heard that radeon 4670 is equivalent to geforce 9600GSO/8800GS.
But here in my country gfx cards are too expensive. Only the choice for me is to buy msi r4670-2d1g which is a 1gb version or Geforce GT240 512mb ddr3 so i want to know that is there any difference between 4670 1gb and GT240 512mb ddr3 , if there is, then which one is faster and by how much!!!

though 1gb has lower mem. clk. but does that make it slower than gt240 .The other available options are geforce 9800gt, radeon 4850, radeon 4890....etc. but these card need a bulky psu which my system lags.

so i am in need of an advice that which one is faster between these two:MSI radeon 4670 1gb or geforce gt240(which is 512mb ddr3)

BTW i have Samsung T220 22" monitor.

THnx in advance.
 

Answer:Is Radeon 4670 1GB version faster than 512MB version?

Overall the GeForce 9600 GSO is a little bit faster than the Radeon 4670, but not by much. So its all about your personal choice & price difference between the two in your part of the woods.

Greetings Clubsters. I recently ran into a spot of bother upgrading from Nero 11 to 16. My original N11 was on my H drive (which failed) and so I thought I might install N16 on another drive (D. However, Nero will not install a new product without firstly uninstalling the previous version. I tried changing the drive letter, however this did not work. Apart from installing another drive H: and reinstalling N11 (which I really don't want to have to do) I can see no other way around this. I have tried several Registry Cleaners, however I'm not real impressed with any of those types of apps.
So, any suggestions (other than soak my sorrows and accept the inevitable?) Any help will be greeted with great enthusiasm.
Kindest Regards, WhiteBeard.

Answer:Nero will not install a new version without first uninstalling the previous version

I dont see any solution. Your Registry points to a Drive which does not exist. See if you can search for the keys manually and delete all that have "Nero" written in the keys. Thats the only thing I can think of.

Hey-
My hard drive crashed a few weeks ago. Computer store said they couldn't recover anything off the hard drive. My neighbor is a computer guy and let me borrow an external device to "read" my hard drive. He suggested using FileRescue to recover the info on the crashed drive. FileRescue has a free trial version and a pay version. What's the difference? Should I just bite the bullet and pay for the full version? I'm really just interested in recovering some pictures and excel spreadsheets. Please advise...
Thanks
Ramona

Answer:Difference between free trial version and pay version of FileRescue

It depends on the extent of the hard drive failure. If the system does not recognise the drive you may not be able to recover anything at all.Typically, the trial version will show you what can be recovered but may not do so or with limited resultsTry Recuva its free and pretty good

Hi, newbie and non-techie, please be gentle! Posted in Tutorial section about changing key code, but not sure if it's the right place so will copy here too.
I am buying a new PC in Spain but want Windows 7 Home Premium in English, which does not seem to be available anywhere here. So my techie guy is downloading an English version (pirate???) and at same time buying a genuine Spanish version. He says he will then use the key code from the Spanish pack to validate the English version.
Is this possible, and could I encounter any problems later? How can I be 100% sure (before I leave the shop!) that I have a validated, genuine English version of Windows 7 that will continue to work indefinitely?

Answer:Activate English version with Spanish version key?

I have read that the keys are language-version-specific. Others may know for sure.

Here is how to doublecheck validation before leaving the shop. Ask for the Spanish pack key insert. Run Attachment 39526 and scroll down to see the installed keys on machine: compare audit's Windows 7 key to the key your shop provided given on package insert.

Now go to Start>right click Computer>Properties and scroll down to confirm Windows is activated.

Be sure to keep the Spanish package key insert with the paperwork from your shop. Ask for a DVD copy of the Windows 7 installer to use for reinstalls or repairs.

Hi there

I bought a new Laptop here in Germany which comes, as you would expect, with a German version of Windows. I would prefer an English version though. It appears I'd have to update to Win Ultimate or Enterprise to be able to change the language which is quite expensive. However, I don't need the ability to change languages, I just want English.

So, I still have an unused English Win 7 license. Is there any way to convert my system from German to English using that license and keeping all the software that is already installed on my Computer?

Any advice will be much appreciated. Thanks!

Answer:Possible to install English version over German version of Win 7?

You can call MS Customer Service to find this out for sure.

I think I'd shrink C in Disk Mgmt to install to a test partition to see if English will activate with your Product Key, as this can vary. If so then we can help you remove the old OS or hide it if ever needed again.
Partition or Volume - Shrink
Partition or Volume - Extend

Put your wireless adapter on a stick so you can get online to try activating. If not just delete the test partition in Disk Mgmt and extend C back over it.

Remember you can only have 4 Primary partitions or three Primary and unlimited Logical. If in doubt post back a screenshot of Disk Management - Post a Screen Capture Image

I have Version 7.1.409 AVG free curently installed, and have just downloaded Version AVG 7.5 free. Do I have to un-install 7.1 before installing the 7.5. If I have to un-install 7.1 do I just do it via ADD Remove, or is there a better/thorough way.

thank you

Answer:replacing AVG latest version with earlier version

No, just run the file you downloaded, and you get options to remove, add components or repair. I choose add components, and it installed the new version right over the old.
