Install Win 7 Rtm Via Iso - License Is Invalid

Okay, so i know it's not the best way to go about this but non the less it is what i need to do now. I am too backed up with other systems work and non systems work to do a complete re-install right now. I have the windows rt 7100 on my computer. I am reading how to do the work around of installing via this way, see link, http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/dd446674%28ws. 10%29.aspx.

I have the windows 7 rtm downloaded and also a copy on a disc as well as an upgrade company from my new computer. They are all windows 7 professional. I want to burn the iso to a disc and i am having trouble finding the iso when i view the download files and or the disc that i put in.

I also backed everything up but am concerned that i can copy all the files and data over, i did a systems image backup using the software in the windows rc version and saved it to an external hard drive.

Two questions, in doing the upgrade via this method does that mean that i don't have to re-install all of my other programs at this time?

At some point, i will do it anyways, i just want to know all the ramifications, will the system tell me that my license is invalid or check and cause an alert of this. I have my license keys for all of my copies of windows professional 7, so will it prompt me to put the right licenses in at some point in the upgrade?

Install Error 2329 And Saving Downloaded Files

Increasingly i have noticed repeated errors concerning file access on windows 7. While uninstalling a program, i will get the 2329 error halfway through, and also errors while trying to save downloaded files (i assume something to do with 0 length files), messages informing me that the file cannot be saved.

I believe that these two errors are connected, and are caused by the slow response of the os and anti-virus software, keeping handles to files open longer than is required, leading to these errors.

 Any thoughts?

Downloaded Files Are Vanishing

I am helping my cousin with her machine, and this one has me a bit baffled. She is running ie8 on a vista machine. Whenever a download occurs, whether you choose "run" for an executable, "save" for any file, or "open" for any file, the file completes the download, but it never arrives at its destination. Saved files are never in the destination folder, opened files never open in their respective programs, and run executables never start. Searches for the files by name come up with nothing.

I have tested two things. First, files that can be opened within plugins, such as a pdf, open just fine as long as they are opened within ie. If a pdf is downloaded to the hdd with the expectation that it will open upon completion using adobe as a separate program, the download finishes, and nothing happens. The file is nowhere to be found.

As a baseline, i wanted to know if another browser would work. I got chrome onto the machine, and i do not have this issue, but my cousin would rather have ie back. Any suggestions?

Explorer Will Not Copy 8gb Iso Image File To External Drive

Windows explorer will not copy an 8gb iso image file to an external drive with 185gb of free space says file is too large for the destination file system. I tried copying an 8gb iso image file to an external drive with 185gb of free space and windows explorer keeps giving me the message "file is too large for the destination file system".

Then i tried copying the same file to a separate partition on my hard drive and it worked smoothly. I also tried copying a folder containing the sae content and about the same size and it also copied easily. I don't understand why it will not copy the 8gb iso file. By the way i am using windows 7 ultimate.

Installation File Won't Run Without Iso Burning Software

Problem installing downloaded version of windows 7 professional on a netbook running xp with no external dvd drive - installation file won't run without iso burning software. I downloaded windows 7 professional to install on my netbook running windows xp - the help indicated that this would be possible and would avoid the need for an external dvd drive but because it needs to be a clean install the file downloaded is a . Iso file which i guess needs to be burnt to a cd to run?

Is there any way of getting round this without getting an external dvd drive, possibly by using alcohol120% to mount it on a virtual drive - i guess this could be a problem with a clean install, so would it work if i put it on my external hard drive?

.kmz Files Downloaded As Compressed Folders

I've been messing around with . Kmz files. If i double click on the kmz file on my local hard drive, it opens in google earth as i'd expect and right click->open with only has google earth in the options. So on my local hard drive, . Kmz files are working great. However, if i click on a link like this http://caiels.com/local/ivybridge. Kmz. I get a dialogue showing a file name of ivybridge.zip and it tries to open in 'compressed folders'.

Also if i link from http://maps.google.com/?Q=http://caiels.com/local/ivybridge. Kmz and click the 'view in google earth' option, it downloads as a zip file. So i hope i'm asking this question in the correct place. Why does explorer work fine with kmz, yet internet explorer treats them as a zip file? And is there anything i can put in the link to force it to download as . Kmz and therefore open in google earth?

Problem With Nvidia Graphics Driver - Solution Could Not Be Downloaded

I click on solve pc issues (the flag) and it says address a problem with nvidia graphics driver. I click it and it says "this solution could not be downloaded".

Most likely causes: your computer was unable to download the solution at this time. Check to make sure your computer is connected to the internet, and then try to download the solution again later.

I am connected to the internet, and windows update works, web browsing works etc. Why isn't it downloading the solution?

Setup File Must Be Downloaded And Installed Before This Feature Will Work

Trying to install xp mode and virtual pc, i set the bios and did everything to the letter, twice. It's in my program list but it keeps telling me "the setup file must be downloaded and installed before this feature will work". I have a new hp pavilion dv7 64 bit that came with vista. I upgraded today at the geek squad to 7 ultimate so i can run autocad14 software. I have now spent 6 hours reading, reinstalling.

Twice i've downloaded 500megs and installed the new xp mode and virtual pc, i set the bios and did everything to the letter, twice. It's in my program list but it keeps telling me "the setup file must be downloaded and installed before this feature will work".

A2c Files Downloaded As Zip Files

If you go to alice.org and try to download one of their image files, ie8 changes the extension from a2c to zip making the file unusable unless the user manually changes the file extension.

http://alice.org/index.php?Page=gallery/amusement park/index

In our school network users are not allowed to change the file extension so that does not work. I found that the user when downloading has to change the file type to all files and change the file extension then. This is a bother to have to remember. When i tried with a different browser (chrome) the a2c file was recognized correctly. The computers in my school are laptops running windows xp. At home my desktop runs windows 7 and the problem is there as well. There was no problem with ie7.

After Win7 Install Should I Install Programs Then Backed Up Files ?

After windows 7 complete install. Should i install the programs then the backed up files or the backed up files then the programs. Windows 7 complete install. Should i install the programs then the backed up  files or the backed up files then the programs. I saw where microsoft recommended installing the backed up files first then the programs so the programs know where the files are located.

I would think installing the programs first would be better to minimize defragmentation. Os then programs, then files.

Where Do I Install My Programs To?

I am building a simple installer for some software that i want to install on some of the computers here at work. I'm using a very simple open source installation program, and it wants me to set the default installation directory where the software i have written should be installed. The computers at work are a mix of windows xp, vista and soon windows 7 computers. I have been installing to c:program files before, and that's been working fine.

But since vista came out, its been a bit unpredictable. I understand there is something to do with 'virtualization' of folders, which i don't really understand, and i also believe that this has all changed again with windows 7.

Is there some 'best practice' guide for where to install programs to?  The users who will be installing the software are just regular computer users (ie. Not administrators) and therefore i need a solution that works on all platforms and is safe and won't create security issues.

Cant Install Any New Programs

For some reason every time i go to install something new, ie quick time, java or itune, my computer is telling me i cant install something until i complete the installation currently in progress. The thing is, i have no idea what is in progress, and have had this problem for almost a month. I*ve restarted my computer and even done system restores to try and clear it up. I also cannot uninstall programs. I was wondering if anyone could tell me how to pinpoint exactly where or what the installation may be. Or if there is something i can do to cancel all current installations.

Install Kb980182

I am running windows 7 enterprise 32bit. I had a user install update kb980182. After installing the update and rebooting, windows 7 display was off, not loading his profile. The following prompt was displayed: location is not available c:windowssystem32configsystemprofile desktop refers to a location that is unavailable. It could be on a hard drive on this computer, or on a network. Check to make sure the disk is properly inserted, or that you are connected to the internet of your network, and then try again. If it still cannot be located, the information might have moved to a different location.

This is a standard desktop pc with windows 7 installed on the local hard drive. I tried this on another windows 7 enterprise computer and received the same error. Is there a problem with this update? Is there a fix for this issue?

Cannot Install Hotfix

Hotfix pwd does not work to unzip the hotfix. I have requested 4 times and have tried manually and copy/paste. This is for the 64 bit patch. I can download and successfully unzip the x86 patch, but i don't need that one (just a sanity check). I can't respond to the email and i can't contact support because msft wants to charge for the support. I just want a password that works for the 64 bit hotfix or someone to contact. This is pretty ridiculous there is no qa around this.

Install Media

I've got 2 computers with windows 7 - a desktop that i have just done a clean install with a windows 7 home professional retail license, and a laptop that came with vista that i updated using the upgrade programme.
 
My issue is that the version of windows 7 i got for upgrading the laptop was 32 bit only (although it had 64bit vista and has 4gb of ram), so i was wondering if i would be able to do a clean reinstall on the laptop using the 64bit installation media from the retail copy of win 7, but using the key from the laptop upgrade package? Would like to get some idea if this would work before wiping the laptop, and help welcome!

Un-install Trouble

I tried installing an older version of palm desktop (win nt, 95) on a windows 7 system. The install worked, but i couldn't hotsync with the palm device. I later found a vista version i wanted to install, but it requires the older version to be uninstalled first. When i run the uninstall from within add/remove programs, the uninstall starts, but then stops with an error message (error number 0x80040702 - failed to load dll:palmdevc. ) The uninstall then terminates.

By the way, i searched the hard drive and the original installation disc for a dll file named palmdevc, and could not find it. Any ideas how i can uninstall this program?  Not only is it wasting some (minimal) disk space, but now every time, i boot up, it displays a message failure to hotsync, which is annoying.
Thanks from hdjeff

Cannot Install Wmp 11

I'm still on wmp 10 for some reason and i wanted to connect my pc with 360 to stream videos. I downloaded the update but it was telling me to go get the rollup update 2 or something, so i attempted to install that and it told me i needed to go get .net framework 1. 1 and .net framework 1. 1 sp1. I went to download those and install them, but it's telling me that "the upgrade patch cannot be installed by the windows installer service because the program to be upgraded may be missing, or the upgrade patch may update a different version of the program". I've googled it, tried all sorts, uninstalled sp3 and tried it and nothing.

Cannot Install Win7 From Xp

I am attempting to load windows 7 64 bit to do a clean install from optical drive boot. I have ascertained that the bios is set to boot from cd. My processor is intel core 2 duo e4500 which supports 64 bit. I currently have installed windows xp  which has been fully updated. On booting the pc the display shows that the files are being loaded in a strip at the bottom of the monitor.

However it then goes on to start to load windows and i only get the initial 'blue flowery pattern splash screen'. It then refuses to go on to the 'install now' frame. I get no error messages.

Cannot Install Updates

I have an hp pavilion slimline with windows 7. I am having trouble with windows installer. I am not in safe mode, i have administrative rights. The message says that windows installer is in safe mode or incorrectly installed. I cannot run certain updates and i cannot install itunes64 setup. The computer runs and works great except for the installer. I am unable to use or install windows cleanup utility, etc. Any suggestions or links to fix this problem?

I was on the phone with apple support for 2 hrs. To try to get working when i bought my iphone. They suggested several things and finally suggested contacting hp, which was a joke. I do not know where or who to contact at microsoft for help. I am not very savvy with computers.

How Do I Install Xp Mode On 7?

I need to test a camera that only has xp drivers, but i have a 7 pro computer. So i decided to install the xp mode, but i am running into a problem.

I went to the microsoft website where the downloads are located (http://www.microsoft.com/windows/virtual-pc/download.aspx?Rungenuinecheck=true&system=4&lang=1&buttonclicked=winxpmode). It nicely lists the steps that are necessary. The first step (marked with download/install this first) makes me download a file called windowsactivationupdate.exe, and instructs me to install it and then click the "continue" button.

The program i downloaded is 156 kb, not the 500 mb that is mentioned on the website, and i suppose it is just a program to check the validity of my 7 installation. However, when i install it, nothing happens. I am left on the website with 2 options: download and cancel. Pressing download only downloads the .exe again (and starting it only tells me that it is already installed, pressing "cancel" gets me back to the original web page. I can click the "first step" again, and the while circle starts over.

Either i am doing something wrong (what?) Or the windowsactivationupdate.exe is supposed to do something that it is not. I don't see a new program icon or folder either after installing it, so i can't start anything manually.

How do i install the xp mode?

Cannot Install Kb2032276

I can't install update kb2032276. I've got win7 home premium 64bit, which is an upgrade from vista and kapersky anty virus. My problem is, that after accepting the installation of this update, it shows that it starts download but no matter how long i would keep my laptop on it still freezes at 0% and nothing happens. Sometimes when it gets through downloading, it still can't install it and the installation bar shows 0%.

Every time when i turn on my laptop, update starts automatic (even though i sometimes turn my internet modem off. ) And shows that its downloading the update, but its still 0%. No error code appears. I was trying to download it from microsoft support page, but situation looks the same - installation constantly shows 0% - no matter for how long my laptop is on. There's no other problem with updates than this one. I've installed later safety updates, but i simply can't this one, so i could really use some help with it.

Install Freezes

I am running windows 7 ultimate and trying to install a program that they say is compatible with it. It is a scuba dive log program from aeris dive. When i start the setup file it opens install shield & goes through the initial parts, identifying the system, where the files will load etc but when it gets to the screen where it starts setup it just freezes.

I have tried to run it as administrator (i have admin rights) but no luck. I tried to run microsoft installer cleanup utility but that too locks up. I shut off all of my virus and spyware blocking tools and no effect. The file is ok as i can install it on another pc.

Install While In Bios Or In Xp

I don't know if i should install windows 7 before i load windows xp, while i'm in the bios (boot from cd drive) or should i run it while in xp, when i put in the disk it says install now, check compatibility online. On the directions that come with the disk, it says do it through bios, but then online it says to load windows xp and install it that way (where it actually pulls up the screen mentioned above). So my question is a- what is the difference, and b- which one do you use, and c- under what circumstances do you use it?
