Visual Studio 2005 Pro Compatibility With Win 7 Pro 64-bit

Can i use visual studio 2005 pro on windows 7 pro 64 bit? I use visual studio 2005 pro on xp pro 32 bit. Can i use it on windows 7 pro 64 bit?I have looked on the vs site and could not find a definitive answer to using this version on my new os. I know, they're putting visual studio 2010 et al. I do not have the kind of cash they're trying to get from me. T least, if i can use it, i can do some self made/self-used projects. I will download the free development systems. But, they run out after 60-90 days. I still need to get ms office standard 2007/10.

Dual Boot With Win 7 Pro And Xp Pro

I would like to set up a dual boot on my computer. I currently have 2 internal hard drives installed. I would like to have the current c: drive continue to run xp and the second hard drive (d:) run win 7.

Questions:

1. Do i need to buy a full version of win 7 pro or can i buy the upgrade?
2. Is this the best way to run the dual boot on the 2 hard drives? I realize that win 7 pro does have an xp mode, but i would rather keep my current xp running as is.
3. Can you advise the best way for me to install win 7 for this.

Xbox 360 Driver Not Working

I have a madcatz xbox 360 controller. It was working fine with windows vista home premium 32-bit, but since i updated to windows 7 ultimate 64-bit, it has severe issues. A summary of the issues is this: the buttons are always mixed up, a is x, rs is start, (etc. ) And the joysticks move wildly when i start calibration, beyond control.
 
I have tried every microsoft driver i can find, and even xbcd drivers, which make the pad undetectable by most games and even my pc sometimes. Seeing as windows won't let me at least switch the buttons (for instance switch button 2 to be x instead of b) ios there any way to fix this?

Xbox 360 Controller Used For Mouse

I just purchased the game of the year edition of elderscrolls oblivion and i bought an xbox 360 controller to use seeing how it is compatible with windows 7. Everything works fine with one exception. The right analog stick on the controller is supposed to control camera movement however it does nothing, thus i must resort to using the mouse which can be quite the pain. How can i set the right analog stick to act as the mouse for camera control?

Media Center To Xbox 360

I have been trying to connect my windows 7 home premium to xbox 360 using an extender. I have got all the digit code correct and my pc can see xbox on the home network. But when i try to configure the extender - when it tries to get the list of library (xxx items) - it just freezes there and xbox reports a connection failure message xbox cannot connect to media center. Please switch off xbox and on again and try again. I did that but nothing happens. Does anyone know the solution to this problem?

Cannot Connect Xbox 360 As Extender

Can't connect xbox 360 as extender. I know there are quite a few pages on this, but they are generally all about setting exceptions. There are a lot of conflicting pages on which ports to open etc. I have followed some of these but i fear i am doing damage that i wont know exactly what i have done. I tried with all firewall settings turned off just to see if that was the issue but still get error 'cannot connect to extender. My setup is as follows:

Pc(laptop) running windows 7, wireless connection to d link router, connected wired to xbox 360(which has no trouble with xbox live) pc firewall is norton 360, which thinks it has automatically set exceptions. I find this frustrating as at point of sale they explain how easy it is to connect them but instead spend countless hours scouring the net for answers.

Problem Uninstalling Norton 360

I subscribe to verizon security suite. My intent was to leave the norton 360 security program which came with my new netbook on the computer while downloading the verizon security program. I had almost completed the verizon program when i received a message that i would have to uninstall the norton program because of a conflict. I then tried uninstalling the norton program and received another message stating there was download in progress and i would have to wait. So i went back and canceled the verizon download and then tried to uninstall the norton program again and received the same message.

Cannot Connect Xbox 360 To Win7

Having problems connecting my xbox 360 to my windows 7 pc. Previously my pc ran vista and i was able to stream media fine from one. Both pc and xbox are connected to the internet through a thomson tg585v7 router. The pc is connected wirelessly, the xbox is connected via ethernet. On my xbox, i'm generating an 8-digit code, then trying to enter it through windows media center to connect the two. Each time i get the 'cannot set up extender' error message. I've spent quite a lot of time searching forums and using ms help pages to try and solve this problem, but not had much luck. So far, i have:

Deleted previous references to old extenders from wmc and my xbox (including in the memory)
Opened up various ports in the windows firewall.

Norton 360 Scanning Is Very Slow

If it is not norton is there something in windows 7 that i need to change or fix?Norton 360 scanning is so slow that it makes the computer useless. I have a 3. 6ghz pentium, 4gb memory, ssd boot drive, windows 7 home. I did a clean install using windows 7 upgrade over windows xp. I have been working with norton tech support and they cannot find a problem. I have uninstalled norton and my system runs fine. When i reinstall norton it slows to a crawl. It is apparent that it is norton scanning of web and e-mail material that is slowing things down.

The system appears to freeze until a scan is completed, and then proceeds. A full system scan of my computer took almost 6 hours because the scanning is so slow. It took more than 2 hours to scan less than 2000 files. I am using internet explorer for my web browser and microsoft outlook for my e-mail. What settings or controls could be causing norton scans to be so slow?

Xbox 360 Can't Connect To Media Center Pc

I have a toshiba satellite l455, amd semron sl-42, . The very first time i setup the etender it connected perfectly, xbox as well. Later i installed a virus/ security program(eset nod32). My personal firewall was blocking a connection between the xbox and pc. So i changed my security program and removed the extender. I attempted to reinstall the extender but now i get the error msg saying that the extender cannot communicate with this computer. And the same for the xbox.

So i tried setting up a new connection on the xbox. No luck as well. It say "your console cant contact your windows media center pc. Make sure pc is on and connected to network, and it is. Ive tried opening ports and all kinds of things. But im not even sure if im doing anything right. Please help.

Madcatz Fightstick Controller Drivers For Xbox 360

I have a madcatz fightstick for xbox 360 that is supposed to be able to be used on pc as well. When i plug it in it shows up as street fighter iv fightstick for a moment then as xbox 360 controller for windows. On the controller the ring just blinks. In device manager there is a little yellow flag and in properties it says "this device cannot start. (Code 10)"i am using an emachine computer with windows 7 home premium 64bit.

I've downloaded the latest drivers and i still get this issue. I have tried to use the stick on another computer (xp) and it installed correctly so it would appear the issue is on the pc side rather than the stick side. If i have posted this in the wrong section i apologize even though it is game related it seems the issue is with the drivers so i felt this is the appropriate section.

Xbox 360 Controller Plugged To Usb Does Not Work

I've windows 7 as o. S, and i'm having some problems with my xbox 360 controllers. When i've bought the play and charge kit for my xbox 360 controller, i heard that it was possible to connect it to te pc in order to play with games for windows live. So, i've started to look for drivers, and i found them in microsoft's hardware official site. I've installed them, then i've restarted my p. C, i plugged in the usb, windows recognized the hardware.

I thought it was alright. But, even if the hardware has been recognized, it doest work. Then i've discovered that "xbox 360 accessories 1. 2" doesn't recognize the hardware, and it is not recognized as a gaming hardware, but as a generic hardware. At that point i've given up! I've surfed in the internet, trying to find something or someone able to help me, but it was useless. Now i hope you'll be able to solve my problem!

P. S: i've already tried to change controller, to change usb port, to change cable, to uninstall and repeat the driver's installation.

Media Center Extender Support For Non Xbox 360

Does any know if windows 7 media center has any support for media center extenders beyond using an xbox 360. I know that earlier versions of win media center had 3rd party extenders but i didn't think they supported windows 7? I have three other pc's in my house all connected with windows 7 and i want to be able to play back live tv from my one htpc that has a dual tuner to the other win 7 pc's. Right now i can only play back recorded video content & i don't own an xbox 360 to use as an extender and don't plan on buying one. If the answer is no, is there any plans for microsoft on allowing 3rd party vendors to supply mc extenders.

Pc Sound From Speakers And Voice Chat Through Xbox 360 Headset

How can i get my pcs sound to come out my speakers, while have incoming voice chat come through my xbox 360 headset? I am trying to play a game through steam and talk with a friend through the steam overlay. Is there a way to have the game's sound play through my speakers, while having the incoming voice from the steam chat play through my 360 headset.

If it helps, i have my headset plugged into my 360 controller which is connected to my pc via the 360 wireless gaming receiver, which is running windows 7 home premium. And i have the most up to date drivers for my 360 receiver and my realtek sound card.

Any advice or tips that don't pertain to steam may still be able to help (which is why i came here), so feel free to pitch anything that might help. Because this issue may not be with windows i have posted this same question on the steam forums , too.

Edit: i should have stated that i am trying to do this on my windows pc, while playing a pc game (no xbox 360 involved, just alot of xbox 360 accessories that work for the pc).

Xbox 360 - Win7 Classifying Ethernet Connection As A Public Network

I'm trying to network my xbox to my laptop, i've gone through the whole thing, setting the ip address, gateway, sub-net mask, and blah blah blah. Whats got me now is that windows insists on classifying my ethernet connection with the xbox as a public network instead of private, and because of my firewall settings, it won't let me enable file/media sharing. Any solutions?

Connect Xbox 360 To Laptop Running Usb Wireless Broadband Stick

Can i connect my xbox 360 to my laptop running usb wireless broadband stick and play on xbox live? I was wondering if it is at all possible to connect an xbox360 direct to a laptop that uses a telstra 21 wireless broadband usb stick to connect to internet.

I really like xbox and games and i find it hard to believe that in this day and age with 90% of the world using laptops that microsoft didn't create xbox with the capacity to connect through a laptop.
I have windows vista home premium on my toshiba laptop.

Shared Folder Has No Share Name

(1) when a folder is shared using the new "share with" command, it does not have the hand holding folder icon to indicate the folder is being shared, like in xp. Is there a way to enable this?

(2) let's say my pc name is win7pc and the folder i want to share is photo folder on the desktop. In winxp when you share a folder you provide a share name that other people can see in their network neighborhood. But in win7, there is no provision to name the share when using the "share with". So when other people want to use this shared folder, they have to start with win7pcusers and then navigate through the various folders until they reach the photo folder on my desktop.

And when i look at available shares on my pc, it just shows a users folder, which makes me wonder which folder i really am sharing.

Is there a name for this nameless share feature and is it supposed to be better in some way than the named shared that i'm used to in winxp? So far it seems like a less friendly way to share folder.

How To Share Programs With All Users?

I set up standard user profiles in windows 7 home premium for my children plus couple of other users, but they cannot see or use any of the programs i installed under my admin account; such as ms office, itunes, etc, etc.

Could someone please help me understand how i make all programs visible to all users as there appears to be only two options when setting up a user account.

I recall that maybe i should have selected an option during program installation (ms office, itunes etc) to 'allow all users access' but do not recall seeing that option during installation.

This is my first windows 7 user experience having previously worked off xp pro.
