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.

Win 7 Pro 64-bit Printing Is Not Available

I have seen numerous topics on her about windows 7 64-bit printing issues. Here is my case and i have not seen another like it. 1st - please be aware that this is in a corporate environment, 2nd - i have domain administrator rights across the entire domain. We have numerous printers in our domain and i generally use 5 of them. The printers that i am connecting to are attached to a windows server 2003 32-bit box and all printers have the x64 drivers enabled from the mfg on the server. I am running windows 7 pro 64-bit and am attached to the network via cable. I can browse for the printer and have it successfully add, and print a test page from windows. But when i am using applications like ie8, office, adobe reader, etc. I cant print. The specific error that i am getting is "printing is not available. There are no printers installed. You can select and configure a printer in windows control panel. "

I can tell you that i cant print to anything that is listed in my devices and printers, including the xps document writer from microsoft. This only occured once i installed office 2010 beta, and dropped back to office 2007 std. I have removed the printers and removed all drivers from c:windowssystem32spoolx643 and re-added the printers with the up to date drivers without luck. Anyone have an idea on this one?

Webcam Nx Pro With Win 7 64-bit

I know that creative won't make available drivers for its webcamnx pro (for windows 7 32/64). My question is: doesn't exist some driver, of another device, that can be used for that webcam to work under windows 7 64 bits? The webcam nx pro, from creative labs, is a very popular wecam, and a very good device too. Windows 7 is an amazing os, so. It would be great if they could work together. What can be do? Find a compatible driver? Write an independent driver? To press creative labs to create the drivers?

Microsoft Office Pro What Version 64-bit?

I am upgrading to window 7. I just got my computer back from hp repair. Due to the repairs all of the software applications had been removed. The computer came with vista and a free upgrade from hp. I just upgraded to windows 7. Now i need to download my application software and i am starting with my microsoft office professional. I tried to go on the compatibility checker to make sure that the microsoft professional 2007 is compatible.

In checking, the microsoft website says that office professional version 12 is compatible with my 64 bit system. Where do i find my version? I have the original packaging from the store but cannot seem to find the version. How can i make sure it is compatible with a 64 bit system?

Win 7 Pro 64-bit - Random Freeze

I used windows 7 rc 32 bit before this, it worked like a charm. Now, i installed windows 7 pro 64 bit, it works for a couple of weeks smoothly.

Today, i did a few things:

1) installed thunderbird
2) installed a huawei e160g wireless broadband modem
3) changed my dns to 8. 8. 8. 8 and 8. 8. 4. 4
It froze a few times already, and this is what i recall:
1) firefox was open in all cases
2) the modem was being used in all cases
3) thunderbird was uninstalled, still happening.
However, it cant be firefox, i have been using it for weeks.

I just tried uninstalling the modem, smooth so far, but i cant be sure yet. I want to ask: has anyone else had problems with modems or their drivers/programs?

Cannot Install Xp Mode On Win 7 Pro 64-bit

I am running a legitimate, activated copy of windows 7 pro 64 bit with the latest windows updates applied on a fairly new system. I am needing to install xp mode http://www.microsoft.com/windows/virtual-pc/download.aspx however i can't get past the activation problem. I select professional 64 bit, english and click on the first button to download xp mode. It requires me to download and run the windows validation components first, but after downloading and running these the message is that they are already installed. They don't get as far a running. How do i actually get the system validated? There's no error other than "windows activation is already installed" and then the installation stops.

Using Win 7 Or Vista Driver 64-bit In Xp Pro For Printer

Can i use the windows 7 or windows vista driver 64 bit in windows xp pro for a printer? I have now two printers that will not work with my xp pro systems. One is a lexmark 1200 and the other is an hp laserjet 3100. I can find the driver for windows 7 at hp for the 3100, and was wondering what would happen if i installed that on my xp pro 64 bit system. Any advice would be nice.

Cd/dvd Driver Issues - Win7 64-bit Pro Install

Cd/dvd driver issues in the beginning of windows 7 64-bit pro install. Installer will not let me move on until i find a driver for my dvd drive. The only drivers i can get to show up on the list are 64-bit drivers.

I'm upgrading from 32-bit so it won't let me use my vista cdrom drivers.
I have a sony optiarc rw ad-7170s firmware 1. 03 dvd drive
I created the bootable iso myself because of the issue with the digitalriver install
I burned the iso on 2 discs at 2 differnt speeds, didn't fix it.
Dvd is plugged into a sataraid pci card.

I'm almost sure it'll let me through if i can get my hands on the basic 64-bit cdrom drivers. I can't even find them online though.

Duplicate Program File Folders On Win 7 Pro 64-bit

I clean installed win7 pro 64 bit os from win7 pro 32 bit on my laptop and duplicate program files folders (with and without x86 designation) have been created. The duplicated files are windows programs, internet explorer, windows defender, windows mail, windows media player, windows nt, windows photo viewer, windows portable devices and windows sidebar. Does this mean that these duplicate windows apps are needed for 32 bit and 64 bit software to be able to work with that type of software respectively? Do i really need a 32 bit and 64 bit versions of internet explorer, windows defender, mail, media player, nt, photo viewer, portable devices and sidebar?

It would have been nicer just to have one set of these windows applications that works with both 32 bit and 64 bit software. These windows applications use a lot of hdd real estate. It would also be good to be able to have the option of uninstalling one of the duplicate sets. Is the ability to do just that available now?

Outlook.exe Problem With Visual Studio 2008

Ever since i got windows 7 i have been looking for a way to stop outlook 2003 from interfering with the rest of my work. When i boot up, outlook is started as a process by sync center so that it can synchronize my mobile device. Until now, the only problem that this had caused was the fact that
This allowed outlook to keep giving me reminder dialogs. That was annoying, but at least i was able to close them when they popped up. But over the past couple days i started spending some more time using visual studio 2008 again, and it has said not responding in the title bar 2 or 3 times already. I decided to look at the details this time, and here is what they said:

Description: a problem caused this program to stop interacting with windows.

Problem signature:
Problem event name: apphangxprocb1
Application name: devenv.exe
Application version: 9. 0. 21022. 8
Application timestamp: 47317b3d
Hang signature: b92f
Hang type: 288

The only part of this that even gave me any idea as to where to start for solving the problem was the fact that the "waiting on application name" value was "outlook.exe", which was open only as a process as i mentioned earlier. I am not sure how this (assuming it is) is related to the problem, so i was hoping someone could help me. The only guess i can come up with (although i don't know how to test or fix it if it is correct) is that outlook.exe was trying to send a reminder dialog while something else was happening. I am using windows 7 ultimate 64-bit. Hopefully someone can help
Me fix this.

Do I Really Need Pro Version?

Currently i'm running vista home premium w/sp2 (32 bit). Some of the files have become corrupt and because i can't get a full repair cd with sp2, i can't fix it. Slipstreaming is too complicated. I also want to change from 32 bit to 64 bit. No point in having a dual quad processor if you can't use all of it. I've been told that i can buy a retail version, pop in the right cd and hit fresh install. It will wipe vista off my hard drive and install the new windows 7 64 bit in it's place.

Is that true? I've been looking over the various versions and am now totally confused as to what to buy. I can buy an oem, (whatever that is), i can also buy just the 64 bit version, or a full version with both 32 and 64 bit. Whatever i get i want a cd in my hands not a download. I have macrium reflect as my iso image burning program. With that, wouldn't i have the same as the pro version of 7.

Meaning can i just buy the home premium version and use macrium instead of shelling out extra money for a feature i already have?Lso; while trying to hunt down a copy i can afford, i went to ebay. I see a number of sites offering everything windows at ridiculously low prices. One such site is top2dvd.com  they are selling 7 ultimate for $96. Now anybody with half a brain knows they are about to get seriously screwed, or they are going to get a pirated copy. Does microsoft have any kind of dept that cruises ebay to weed these people out, and hopefully throw them in jail?

Is there any place to report these sites to? I have 3 e-mails from this site, all 3 step carefully around the legal copy issue. Yet in their ad they promise it is a fully licensed copy with a good activation key. I just want to get my computer squared away so i can burn a good iso image so i don't end up in this mess again. I didn't know i was even missing files until after i bought macrium and it failed to verify an iso backup image. Kind of like buying a cow after all the fences have all fallen down.

Upgrade From Xp To 7 On Macbook Pro

Upgrade from xp to 7 on macbook pro, without loading bootcamp or the apple os. I have a macbook pro with leopard 10. 5. 1, and i was running windows xp pro service pack 3 on the windows side. I updated to windows 7 , but did not do anything on the apple side. Big mistake, windows 7 works fine but! I have no apple. In order to get the apple working again, what do i need to do? Will i have to restart my upgrade, and use bootcamp with the leopard. If you could provide or direct me to someone who could, step by step instruction on this please do so.

My windows data is still on carbonite and i have no issues with having to lose my apple side memory. I have a external drive if needed i also have 37. 3gig free space common mistake that people make when trying to design something completely foolproof is to underestimate the ingenuity of complete fools.

Office Xp With Win 7 Pro

I own a license of office xp that was purchased on a sony laptop which has become increasingly slow and prone to lockups with each xp update and has also lost some of its original xp components, so i bought a new toshiba with win 7 pro and would like to run the office xp on it. However the sony came with two sony application recovery cds rather than office xp installation cds, and the recovery cds won't run on the toshiba. I have the license key for this office xp copy, but have no way to install it on the toshiba from the supplied cds.

I've used windows easy transfer to copy my desktop profile and data files to the toshiba, but is there a way i can get office xp transferred and installed too? Btw, when i tried to restore the missing xp components from the sony supplied system recovery cds, the setup asked for an xp sp3 cd which i don't have because the sony came with xp before any service packs were issued. This is another reason i broke down and bought the toshiba.

Upgrade New Computer From Xp Pro

Looking for advice for preparation to win7. I have 2 desktops and 2 laptops with xp pro, and i am replacing them with new desktops and laptops with win7. When i have the new systems, should i:complete the new computers set up, with internet, the home network, etc. , And loadany programs and then transfer the data from the old computers?Try and set up and transfer data at the same time?I figure to transfer via usb, should the old computers be "off line" when transferring? In other words, not connected to their network. Just trying to get a feel for the best procedure for the transition.

Re-installation Of Win 7 Pro

I installed windows 7 professional on my new computer build. After a week of transferring files and installing virtual xp, i have ended up with some files doubled and tripled while others are completely missing, and some show up as empty where once there was a file. The status of these seems to now change every time i go to do something new. It has become so confusing i feel like i need to reinstall windows 7 pro and start all over. My concern is whether i will be allowed to reinstall the same disc since it has probably been more than a week since i originally installed and registered it. Any advice?

No Sound Dell Studio 1557 64-bit

No sounds on windows 7. I have a dell studio 1557 (64-bit) with windows 7 installed when i bought it last november. I used it without any problems until about february, when suddenly sound started not to work at all. Troubleshooting couldn't identify the problem but running even a simple program (such as sound recorder or playing a wmv file using windows player) wouldn't work. I tried system restore as a last resort and it fixed the problem. For a while. It reappeared again after some time, and i fixed it again that way, and again and again. So i am wondering if this has any easy fix, and whether any programs might have compatibility issues and cause this?

Logitech Quickcam Pro Drivers

I just installed windows 7 rc (64-bit edition), and everything seems fine, except the webcam drivers. I have a logitech quickcam pro for notebooks, and here's the procedure i tried out to get it working:

1. Tried to install the drivers from the disc supplied with my webcam. No go - it says the operating system isn't supported. I then tried to run the setup.exe file in compatibility mode (right-click and select). I tried out different options - windows xp (home, the os i was running prior to the windows 7 rc installation - it worked fine here), windows xp sp2, windows vista, windows vista sp2. But in each case i'm not able to install the drivers.

2. I then went to the logitech webpage and downloaded the 64-bit logitech quickcam pro (v11. 8) drivers for windows vista. Further to the problem mentioned in (1), i thought that the problem was that the drivers on disc were for the 32-bit version, and the 64-bit version should do the trick. But on running the setup file, i get the same message - software is not for this os. I tried the compatibility troubleshoot (selecting vista/vista-sp2), but doesn't work.

Any help, anyone? I'm running windows 7 rc (64-bit edition) on an amd x2 - tureon processor. My webcam is logitech quickcam pro for notebooks and the installation disc has software v11. 5 (xp, vista capable). The webcam was running just fine in windows xp home (sp3). Can the virtual pc mode be of help here? I don't think so, since i guess the virtual pc mode would take care only of software and not (?) Driver compatibility (?).
