Error - This Version Of The File Is Not Compatible With Version Of Windows


My error message is: "this version of the 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 an x64 (64-bit) version of the program, and then contact the software publisher. "

I've tried running the program in question (castle of the winds) in every compatibility mode that is on the list and all it does is give me that error message every time. Other people have managed to get the program working, so i know it does work on windows 7, but i can't see to get it to work for me. Help?

The version of this file is not compatible with the version of windows you're running. Check your computers 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 a large cd collection published by national geographic. The difficulty lies in installing the program that displays the pages. The program installer ends in . Ins. These picture cd's have been produced by mindscape. When you try to contact them, they are based in france, and it is impossible to obtain support for this product. Is there any way of getting the installer on the cd to do its job of providing a means of turning the 'pages'?

A Program Or Firewall Is Not Compatible With This Version Of Windows

I am having a reoccurring windows security alert and  issue with my windows 7 home premium edition.
I have a dell studio1737 laptop. I get a windows security alert warning stating "a program or firewall is not compatible with this version of windows"

Name: microsoft console based script host
Publisher: microsoft corp
Path: c:windowssystem32cscript.exe

I also run norton internet security on my laptop. I am also quite careful about my online activities so i am pretty confident it is not a malware issue. But i could also be wrong.
I have contacted norton support and after removing and reinstalling norton is 2010 a couple of times. They advised me to contact microsoft support for assistance because they could not rectify the issue i am having.

Dell support have not been much help either (nothing new there). I have searched extensively for a solution and an answer but i have unfortunately not found anything that has helped me. Can anybody here help me with this issue. Because i am not filled with confidence at the moment about my laptops security? Also if anybody could give me any information about what cscript.exe is and why it is causing these problems.

System Recovery Option Not Compatible With Version Of Windows

Was organizing the sata connectors in case disconnecting/reconnecting a few hdds, one with the windows 7 64 bit os (h1). Then disconnected all hdds leaving a new one and installed windows 7 64 bit on it (h2) with only it connected. Performed fine. Disconnected it (h2) and reconnected the first one (h2) and windows 7 would not launch, so inserted os disc and it would repair something (i have no idea what as it did not indicate, i found that to be particular helpful by ms) and then windows 7 would launch. From there on, any time i switched between the two drives each having the respective os (h1 or h2), the os disc would need to be used to repair the unspecified problem and launch win. Did this a few times until the first os (h1) the disc no longer could 'repair' what ever needed to be fixed and the famous message follows:

"This version of system recovery options is not compatible with the version of windows you are trying to repair. Try using a recovery disc that is compatible with this version of windows"

The real (dis)interesting part to all of this, is that yes important data is off on drives other than the os drive though did have a few files with mostly shortcuts on the desktop. In accessing the first os (h1) via the second (h2), after fighting through the "access is denied" and "ownership rights" ual busines, only half of the files that were on the desktop are actually in the desktop folder/directory. Is it worth fixing the os on h1 to get into windows to see if these files magically reappear or is what i'm seeing directly in the folder all that remains. What happened to files that were on the desktop and what is it with all of these fundamental os/hdd issues with windows 7?

This Installation Disc Isn't Compatible With Your Version Of Windows

I'm having a problem installing windows 7 64-bit. I had windows xp 32-bit, but then i "upgraded" to windows vista 64-bit. After i did that, i realized that i hated it, so i went back to 32-bit xp. Now when i try to install windows 7 i get the message "this installation disc isn't compatible with your version of windows. To upgrade, you need the correct installation disc. For more information, check your computer's system information. To install a new copy of windows, restart(boot) your computer using the installation disc, and then select custom(advanced). I have run 64-bit before, and my computer is capable of running 64-bit windows. The disc i have is from the it office at my school.

Vs Filter Wrong File Version

I recently upgraded to windows 7 home premium from vista for the improvements to media centre. In order to get it to play mkv files which i use heavily i have had to download a codec package. I have tried to use both k-lite and the shark's windows 7 i am running a 64-bit system so i add on the 64-bit versions to them otherwise the mkvs will not play.

However whenever i go into my main video folder i get vs filter wrong file version pop up. It consistently pops up 3 times before allowing me to play the file. I have uninstalled and reinstalled 7 several different ways and have done the same to the codec packs and i still get it popping up. It's driving me crazy it appears i'm the only one in the world having this problem. Any solutions out there?

Error - Microsoft.net Framework Version 2.o Is Required To Continue

Upgraded vista to windows 7 and upon every restart an error message appears stating "microsoft.net framework version 2. 0 is required to continue". Does anyone have a fix to this problem - step by step please; i have tried a lot of the recommendations i have seen in some of these postings and none have worked?

Local future shop is putting profits before customer satisfaction and is demanding $$$ to fix it; so i will do it myself - not sure why i should have to pay for something i have already paid for - an upgrade that installs and works properly?

Error - Microsoft .net Framework Version 2.0 Is Required To Continue

I keep getting the message listed above whenever i start my computer. It began after i upgraded to windows 7. When i try to install the service pack for the .net framework version 2. 0, it says that the software is not compatible with vista. But i installed the windows 7 upgrade, so it should not matter if it is compatible with vista, right? I don't understand what i am supposed to do; first, i get an error message saying i need .net framework version 2. 0, then i get a message saying that it is not compatible.

Trial Version

Is there a trial version of windows 7 available? If not, would i be able to install 1 licensed copy on multiple computers using the same hard drive without activating it to test the different computer systems to see which ones needed to be replaced? Example: 6 dell computers ranging from 2 to 5 years old all running windows xp professional. I take a copy of my windows 7 and a spare hard drive to computer a. I remove the existing operating hard drive and replace with the spare hard drive in it's place.

Clean windows 7 installation, drivers, programs. Then i work on the machine for 15 to 30 minutes as normal to determine if the computer system needs replacement or not. Once i am finished, i remove the spare hard drive with windows 7 on it placing the windows xp drive back in. At the end of the day all computers are running exactly the same way as they were before i walked in the door.

I know i could use the windows 7 upgrade advisor tool however, it would not give me accurate information since all the computers are only running microsoft office 2k3 (excel, outlook and word). They would all be running windows 95 today if it wasn't for the security issues - only reason for updating from windows xp.

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.

Change 64 Version To 32

I purchased a window 7 home premium family pack upgrade. On the initial desktop i decided that i would upgrade to the 64 version. However i now find that two programs that i use, autocad 2006 and cs2 do not have 64 versions on the cds. I will therefore have to upgrade if i want to go down that path and since i am nearing retirement i do not want to go down that road. If i un-install the 64 version reformat and load the 32 version will that still count as one of my three upgrades?

Hence i would still be able to upgrade my wife's desktop and our laptop. The alternative is i believe to keep the 64 version and to load a virtual program and install my vista 32 version and run both autocad and cs2 in this virtual program. If this is possible how easily is it to switch between the 64 and 32 versions and will the 4gb ram i have be sufficient, or do i need more ram to run both versions at the same time? Finally if the virtual program is the way to go what virtual program should i download?

Wrong Bit Version

I won a copy of windows 7 ultimate at a microsoft hosted seminar. When i opened it at home to install, i discovered that there was only a 64 bit version disc in the package. Since i have a dell 32 bit laptop running vista home premium, i cannot use the disc that i won. Is it possible for me to somehow exchange this unused disc for the correct version? I could provide you with the product code which has not been registered or used.

If exchanging the physical media discs is not practical, could you exchange the code to allow me to do an online upgrade path to any edition of windows 7? I don't need ultimate and would be happy with the standard home edition. I was told by a friend that this activation code inside the package would not work if i simply did an online up grade to 7.

Pirated Version For Trial

I have a computer designed for windows xp. However i'm highly considering getting windows 7. I had a application to see if i'd be able to run it, which it passed most the requirements. However like many know, even if you have the hardware, sometimes it doesn't quite run as smoothly as it should. Regarding this i've been tempted to download a pirated version of windows 7 to see if this computer could handle it to my expectations.

By doing so i understand that this is illegal. So, is there anyway for me to get a trial version? Such as this starter edition i've heard. If not, let's say i went ahead and downloaded the pirated version.could i just buy a valid product key online and use it on the pirated version and activate it?

Upgrade Or Full Version?

Last fall, i bought a brand new hp laptop. It runs on vista (oem version). I would like to install windows 7 on the laptop since i'm not fully satisfied. Knowing that i have the oem version and i will reformat the hard disk. Should i buy the upgrade or the full version? If i buy the upgrade version, how can windows 7 recognize that i already have a vista license if the disk is reformatted? I don't know the vista license number and where to find it.

Which Version Of Internet Explorer Am I Using?

How can you determine which version internet explorer you are using? I have been using version 7 but recently downloaded version 8. However, i keep getting messages on my yahoo web page saying that i am still viewing the browser with an old version of ie. I still have the old icons for ie on my desktop and on my start menu. No matter which one i use, i get the same message. When i look at my uninstall/install software listing, it does indicate that ie8 has been installed. Why i getting the message from the browser?

Win 7 Version Recommendation

Running the trial version of windows 7 right now. Trying to figure out which of the the 3 versions to purchase. I'm leaning more towards the premium version, but my main concern is whether or not i'll be able to still do vista based applications. The only real thing i do is capture video with a dvc 100 usb capture device. Just want to make sure i get the correct version of windows to run it. I don't do it in vista mode, but the drivers are for a version based on vista. 'sides that do a little gaming, but my pc is mainly for multimedia purposes.

Activating Upgrade Version

I purchased windows 7 professional upgrade version a while back. My laptop previously had windows vista ultimate edition installed by dell when i purchased the machine. Unfortunately my hard drive died between purchasing and installation of windows 7 and the new key does not work as it tells me i'm not allowed to install as a clean installation - which quite frankly is a little annoying.

What do i do now? Do i have to go buy another copy of windows 7 or pay the difference between the upgrade version and the full version? Or do i have to uninstall windows 7, install vista ultimate then reinstall the upgrade version? Either way it is pretty annoying as there was no mention that clean installations are not allowed when installing the upgrade version.

Upgrade Trial Version

How can i upgrade a windows 7 trial version? I had vista home premium. Was having probs.computer would freeze, a lot. Took it to a repair place. They told me the motherboard was "going". I asked them to wipe the hd clean so i could possibly sell the computer for parts. I get the computer back, and it has a 90 day version of windows 7 pro on it. And the computer works fine. So i use the computer for three months, and more, but i need to activate windows 7 pro.

I have no key and i don't want to go back to the repair place. So, what do i need to buy, to be legal? And where should i buy it? And will i lose everything again when i install? Btw. No signs of motherboard problems at this point so i'm thinking the guy just was wrong. I'm willing to take the gamble, anyway, and buy windows 7.
