Xp Programs Work With Win7 64-bit ?

If microsoft suggests that windows 7 professional 32-bit will run my old xp programs, does this mean that this is the minimum requirement, and that my old xp programs will also work with windows 7 professional 64-bit?

Hp Support Advisor Does Not Work After Upgrade

I upgraded from windows vista to windows 7 a few days ago. Everything else appears to be working okay but when i click on the icon for the hp support advisor it opens and displays the initial program screen but at the top left it flashes "gathering information", the button at the bottom right which appears to be a button is blackened so i can't use that function, at the bottom there is "product #, product name, and serial # but all appear to be deactivated because they are gray yet they all display "loading. " But nothing is happening. The sand timer displays but is eternally working and does not change into an active icon so i can click on any option.conclusion: i cannot access the hp support advisor and need help.

Anytime Upgrade Doesn't Work

Just bought a dell i580 with windows 7 home 64bit. I was also sold the windows anytime upgrade from home premium to windows 7 professional for $89. 00. After i enter the product key it tries to install for a few minutes then says upgrade unsuccessful. I was told by dell that i would need to buy a full upgrade version of windows 7 pro for $200. 00. I can find full retail version for less than this.

The full version would ven make reinstalls easier. Is this what i need to do or is there a better way?I can find full retail version for less than $200. 00. The full version would even make reinstalls easier in the future. If i buy a full retail version instead of the upgrade and do a full new install, cani the use the license from the windows 7 home premium on a different computer?

Upgrade Motherboard - Win7 Doesn't Work

I built my own computer and upgraded my motherboard and video card today and when i went to boot it up, 7 failed to start. After running the full diagnostics and reading the advanced details stating nothing other than "unspecified hardware changes" to be at fault, i came here for answers. I saw other people had upgraded, but with store bought pcs. Other than a clean install, what can i do to fix the issue? When i go to repair the installation, it only takes me to the list of options with system restore (which doesn't work, obviously). I tried loading windows in safe mode to no avail and naturally, i did my work when tech support was closed.

Win 7 Upgrade Programs Incompatible

I had a problem with the upgrade from vista home premium to windows 7 home premium. The upgrade advisor advised that canon easy-photo and catalyst install manager were incompatible so i uninstalled both and re-started. The upgrade then went through its own compatibility check and then stalled saying the same two programs were incompatible. After several more unsuccessful attempts including ensuring the two programs were uninstalled i solved the problem and succeeded with the upgrade by 1) searching for and deleting every file that referred to the two programs; and 2) using regedit to search for and delete every reference to the two programs in the registry. Of course the above hassle should not have been necessary to upgrade.

Will Upgrade Removes Installed Programs?

I purchased a new hp in october of 2009 and realized that it did not come with microsoft office (just mesely microsoft works). A friend of mine is a computer tech and has a special license for ms office that allows him to install on a whack load of different computers (yes, it is ligit. There's a product code and everything), so he installed it on my computer for me. I have now received the windows 7 upgrade package and am worried that upgrading from vista to 7 will delete microsoft office from my computer as it is not a 'factory program' (i had to add the program, my computer did not come with it on it). Does anyone know if upgrading will delete my newely installed ms office? I do not have access to the program cd, so if it were to delete, i would not be able to reinstall.

Also, i'd like to add it is not an illegal version of word, the friend of mine who installed it for me is a computer technician. And also, i believe it is the newest version of office available right now.

Clean Install With Upgrade Media - Activation Code Wont Work

Im a student in the pitt system. We were issued a copy of windows 7 ultimate upgrade version. I have a laptop with vista on it and would be happy to keep it on there. I recently built a new computer from scratch and would like to put my copy on windows 7 on there.
 
Everything worked up until i got to the activation code since it was as fresh of an install as it could be. The activation code wont work though. Being a college student, i don't have enough money to buy even an old copy to install so i can upgrade to windows 7. Are there any very low cost (under $30) options in order to have my windows 7 work?

Using System Image To Restore Programs After Upgrade From 32 To 64-bit

Can i use windows system image to restore my programs after upgrade from windows 7 32 bit to 64 bit? I have read through a fair amount of the forum but can't seem to find a straight answer on this. I may be naive but i am looking at upgrading my 7 ultimate 32 bit to the 64 bit version and want to know if i can use the system image utility in windows back up to restore all my programs and files after the custom install necessary to get to 64bit. I don't have a lot of my serial numbers etc for programs i have purchased and it will be a hassle to get everything back on there.

After Upgrade To Win7 Office 2003 Programs Flicker

Office 2003 programs have a "flicker" when running in an upgrade to windows 7 home premium.converted from windows vista home premium to windows 7 home premium on a dell intel core two duo. Everything works well except that in office 2003 sp3, word, excel, and access have what i would describe as a "refresh flicker".

It appears that there is a continuous refresh of the page selected that causes various parts of the page to "flicker". In addition, the cursor has the continuous running circle, instead of a pointer or arrow. Tried the compatibility wizard, and it did not work. This did not happen in vista. Do you have a suggestion on what is causing this?

Upgrade Problem, Need To Uninstall Programs That Don't Exist

Problems upgrading from 32-bit vista business to 32-bit windows 7 professional (updating drivers, needing to uninstall programs that don't exist, etc. ) I am trying to upgrade from 32-bit vista business to 32-bit windows 7 professional. I have run the windows 7 upgrade advisor several times. The only item currently showing up as needing addressing is related to some broadcom program (details below).

I tried to just run the upgrade, but i get the message that 'the following issues are preventing windows from upgrading. ' (details below). First of all, i can't find zone alarm in my programs at all (i uninstalled it months ago). I uninstalled google toolbar yesterday, but it's still showing up as needing to be uninstalled.

Regarding 'csr bluecore devices: dell mobile 360 in dfu - csr driver', i tried to update that driver and got the message that i already have the most current version.

Can someone please help me? I'm really losing my patience with this upgrade. Thank you!

The only issue i get when i run windows 7 upgrade advisor:
Broadcast management programs version 10. 15. 01 broadcom corporation
Update available
We don't have compatibility information about this version of the program

The error message i get when i try to run the upgrade. The following issues are preventing windows from upgrading. Cancel the upgrade, complete each task, and then restart the upgrade to continue.
