I bought the Windows Anytime Upgrade, but the software will not be installed.

Help... I bought the Windows Anytime Upgrade on Microsoft Office software to my Vista laptop, but the software will not be installed. Operation message is not supported on this platform. How to get around the facility? I have the product key number, but can not get so far to enter.

I think that you bought the right product. Updates at any time are for the upgrade edition of Windows 7 to a more expensive edition. This isn't what you need to upgrade a Vista system to Windows 7. While Vista upgrades are no longer available from the Microsoft Store.

I suggest that you return to the Microsoft Store site and use the contact methods to discuss your problem with an agent.

  • Photosmart Premium C309-g: the drivers and the printer software will not be installed.

    My network all-in-one Photosmart Premium C309-g worked very well on my desk until recently, when suddenly the HP software could still see and connect to the printer, but Windows 10 could not. I tried to remove the printer and uninstall all associated software, then tried to reinstall the software. Unfortunately, the installation will not get to the point where it starts and then suddenly disappears with no trace of her still running in the background. I can deviate from the default installation and bring to the top of the page to select the components that I want to install, but when I do the button 'ok' on this page does not work. No matter how many times I click on it, the page remains open and the installation will not so fast. If I click Cancel on this page, it disappears and the installation back to the previous page, where I can choose to continue and happen almost immediately out of sight again. This happens whenever I try to install selected software and drivers. I deleted the printer from the devices page in the Panel, I made sure to this it is not is more listed in the Manager of peripheral devices (printers and imaging devices), I removed the Windows 10 print queue and I deleted all the data of the folder under the Program Files (x 86) HP folder on my hard drive. I also disabled Windows Defender and run the installer as administrator, yet none of these steps help the process at all. I have never, in my 20 + years using nothing other than printers HP, encountered a problem like this. I'm used to receive error messages during the installation of software to fail, but I have never had a process simply disappear from the computer without leaving any trace of never having run. I hope that someone out there has an idea, that I have not thought yet, transferring files to my tablet to print from becomes a pain in the rear.

    Welcome to the HP Forums @GarfieldFan1969,

    I understand the printing software will not fully installed for your Photosmart C309 on your system Windows 10, and I wanted to answer with my suggestions for trying to help! Here are my suggestions for you to try. When you are finished, please let me know the results and problems or errors that you may encounter!

    First step: clean boot, restart the PC and try the install again.

    1. start by typing "msconfig" in the search box of Cortana, and then click MSConfig (run command)
    On your keyboard press Windows + R key at same time and type Msconfig in the run window, and then click OK or press ENTER.

    2. now, choose Selective startup

    3. Remove the check of the Load Startup items

    4. click on the Services tab

    5. check "hide all Microsoft Services" and then click on disable all

    6. click apply , then OK

    7 restart the PC and temporarily disable firewalls or antivirus programs

    8 run the Installation Wizard for Windows HP printer to install the printer

    9 turn on the firewall and start services

    Second step: you unregister and re-register the Windows Installer Service:

    1. hold down the Windows key + R to fill the box "Run" and type cmd.exe, and then click OK.
    2. at the command prompt, type msiexec /Unregister , and then press ENTER.
    3. at the command prompt, type msiexec/regserver, and then press ENTER.
    4. at the command prompt, type exit and press ENTER to close the command prompt.
    5. run the Wizard for Windows HP printer installation

    Step 3: run System File Checker Scan (up to 3 times) to repair the corrupted system files:
    1. go to start
    2. type CMD
    3 right-click and run as administrator
    4. to check and repair the OS type sfc/scannow (note the space between sfc and ' / ')

    You may need to run this upward to 3 times to solve all the problems

    When finished, it will say one of three things
    Windows did not find any breach of integrity (a good thing)
    Windows resource protection found corrupt files and repair the (good)
    Windows resource protection found corrupt files but was unable to fix some (or all) of them (not a good thing)

    Try to reinstall the printer.

    Step 4: activate the built-in Windows administrator account


    1. first of all, you'll need to open an administrator mode command prompt by right-clicking and choosing "run as Administrator" (or use the shortcut Ctrl + Shift + Enter in the search box).

    Note that it works the same in all versions of Windows. It just search for cmd and then do a right-click on the icon of the command prompt in the start menu or the boot screen.

    2. If you are in Windows 8.x or 10 you can click on the Start button and choose to open a command prompt in this way.

    3. now type the following command:

    NET user administrator / Active: Yes

    4. you should see a message that the command completed successfully. Log out, and you will now see the administrator as a choice account.

    (Note that this screenshot is for Vista, but it works on Windows 7 and Windows 8 and Windows 10)

    You will notice that there is no password for this account, so if you want to leave it enabled, you must change the password.

    Try to reinstall the printer.

    Hi Davies22,

    There is something in the laptop Toshiba, the origin of the problem, you see, and because the printer works fine on other computers, you will need to contact Toshiba support for the issues you have on the laptop. The only other option you have is to back up your data on this laptop and then run a full system restore which will put the cell phone to the way it was when you bought it all first.

    Dell laptop Latitude 6420

    Windows 7 Professional

    8 GB Ram

    A user in PR must use Adobe first Pro CS6. However, when we tried to install the program is grayed out and displays a warning icon. If I hover over there is a message that says that he prefers the 64-bit. Rather not say will not work in my opinion. However it will not be installed.

    I read that first Pro is 64-bit on another web site. Is this true? There must be a solution.

    On the Adobe site, I saw that the installation of CS4 first was the work around, but you must purchase a license key. We have already purchased the Premier Pro and have no money in the budget to buy an old product when it should work.

    Help, please. I'm under a lot of pressure to solve this problem

  • Why the software will not install?

    I just bought Adobe Photo Shop Elements 8 and try to install it on my new Windows 7 computer.  After I insert the disc in the drive, it gives me a list of files.  There are no instructions, no wizard to install it...  I can't access this file, I can't save it in order to get help.  I can't get to first base.  I checked to make sure autoplay is located.  Can someone help me?

    It seems you accidentally bought the version of PSE 8 Mac and you try to install on the Windows machine.

    Try to go back to the seller or Exchange it somehow with the version of Windows or buy a new copy for PSE 8 Windows. Then, you'll be good to go...

  • Windows XP with Virtual PC mode will not be installed / two problems

    I have Windows 7 Pro (64 bit) and I want to follow the instructions here:


    to install and run Virtual PC so I can see if some legacy XP software I have will work.

    FYI, I use a Lenovo W520 laptop with an i7 to 2.4 ghz with 8 GB of RAM.

    I followed step 1/2 and downloaded the file of 500 MB for Windows XP Mode.  I installed it.

    : #1 there is a note at the bottom of the page that says "once you have installed Windows XP Mode, click the Windows 7 start button, then select all programs > Windows Virtual PC > Windows XP Mode to begin the installation." For more information about how to configure Windows Virtual PC and Windows XP Mode, see "Running Windows XP Mode with Windows Virtual PC" on page Support and videos . "

    I am looking at the view of all programs and there is absolutely nothing that says "Windows Virtual PC" or "Windows XP Mode".  I look at the programs and features in the control panel and indeed, Windows XP mode is installed (and taking up 1.13 GB).  I have uninstall and re-download the 500 MB file and reinstall it.  It is not always appear in the sight of all programs, does not add an icon to my bar quick launch or desktop or anything that suggests a way to start.  It is located in C:\Program Files\Windows XP Mode, but there is no executable file it.

    Problem #2: Step 3 says "Download Windows Virtual PC".  When I click on this button, the download starts, but never works (I tried several times, notably after a clean reboot, with nothing other than the execution of Internet Explorer); I get an error window that says:

    Windows Update Standalone install

    Setup has encountered an error: 0 x 80070422

    The service cannot be started, either because it is disabled or because it has no enabled devices is associated to him.

    What's not?

    Thank you.

    Notes; After the announcement of this issue, some Associates questions skipped upward and I read through them.  Points of a post on this forum-> http://www.sevenforums.com/tutorials/8247-windows-xp-mode-install-setup.html , which suggests that the #2 problem is my problem because I followed along until ste #5-E and then I get the error message 0 x 80070422.


    The question you posted would be better suited in the TechNet Forums. I would recommend posting your query in the TechNet Forums:


  • I have a XP W my last PC installation disk and I recently bought a Zoostorm PC no BONES. Why the XP will not be installed?

    As in the title, tried to install XP on my new PC. Started OK with partition disk etc. and got to the real Windows Installer screen which seemed OK progress until it reaches install will finish in 35 minutes. page, then it froze and BSOD appeared. I tried a number of things suggested by Zoostorm, IE changed the bios SATA to IDE settings and also ran memtest for RAM errors. Found nothing, but still get BSOD. The XP disc would be defective?

    What is the BSOD?

    Here's a BSOD example showing information you provide:


    Send for the nose and the Red arrows (3 to 4 lines total).

    Send all * line STOP message since there are clues in the 4 parameters.

    Ignore the boring text unless it seems important to you.  We know what a BSOD looks like, we know what your BSOD looks like.

    If there is a name of the file listed in the STOP message, don't forget to include that too.

    Hi hhbalfour,

    First of all, don't know why you use an intermediate version of 9.0. You must use a version of FCS such as - 37. Second, it looks like this are IPVMSA newspapers that you shot? There is an internal fault for the errors you see:

    CSCtz44498    Characteristic SW license no longer exists in Kirra 9.0

    Symptom: MOH serves not registered. No Conf Brodge. Conditions: Fresh INstall Only. Workaround: N/A (the fix - the check for the SW Feature license needs to be removed) 

    Fixed in versions:

    009.000 (001.10000.037)

    009.000 (000.99121.003)

    I suggest you to install - 37 who should have a fix for this problem.


    Kind regards

  • You just bought a new computer, Firefox, but Firefox Synch will not sync with my other computer for bookmarks.

    Two laptops have the same version of Firefox update.

    Nevermind, I guess... Suddenly, Firefox is now show bookmarks from another computer. FYI to all, it took more than an hour of synchronization, and during this time, there was absolutely NO indication to me that what was actually happening. That's why I created that, initially. Firefox, there SHOULD really be some sort of recognition by the user that the synchronization is truly something. Thank you.
