I can't install ActiveSync due to "compatibility issues". I'm trying to sync my HP Ipaq.

I can't install ActiveSync due to "compatibility issues". I try to sync my HP Ipaq and I'm stuck now

What to do next?


The successor of ActiveSync in Windows Vista and Windows 7 is Windows Mobile Device Center. Your iPaq must run a minimum of Windows Mobile 2003 or later.

If this option is not available for you, I suggest you put Windows 7 Professional or ultimate edition (if you are running or the another edition) and download free Windows Virtual PC with Windows XP Mode and synchronize your iPaq there.

    original title: driver blocked due to compatibility problems... Please help

    The program compatibility Assistant appears a window whenever I start up my cpu. It says driver blocked due to compatibility issues...

    Here's how to use MSCONFIG in Windows Vista to disable some unnecessary programs that load automatically at startup


    Also, try this program to search for and out of startup:


    This utility, which has a knowledge of auto-starting locations of any startup monitor, shows you what programs configured to run at system startup or login and that the entries in the order of processing windows. These programs include those in your startup folder, Run, RunOnce, and other registry keys. You can configureAutoruns to show other locations, including Explorer shell, toolbar extensions, helper objects to the browser, Winlogon notifications, auto and many start-up services even more. Autoruns goes way beyond the MSConfig utility bundled with Windows Me and XP.

  • Windows 7 2000 error "this program is blocked due to compatibility issues"

    Original title: Windows 7 for 2000.

    I am trying to install Windows 2000 on a Windows 7 netbook so I can run older programs that are not stable on 7/8.1, but I'm stuck when the program compatibility Assistant gives me a message saying "this program is blocked due to compatibility issues... the installation cannot continue because th version of Windows on your computer is newer than the version on the CD.

    As suggested, a virtual machine would be better for running Windows 2000. More modern is no longer supported by Windows 2000, this is why you probably encounter problems installing it.

    You can use one of the free utilities Virtual Machine to run Windows 2000 on your system:

    You can use alternatives such as Oracle VirtualBox or VMWare Player.

  • The driver is blocked due to compatibility issues.___Driver: Tages Protection__Publisher: Tages SA___I want to delete this driver. __

    I recently installed a video game (The Witcher) to my computer that has also installed drivers Tages (some anti-piracy software).  I am running Windows 7 Professional 64 bit.  The game does not run on a 64-bit operating system.  I uninstalled the game, but whenever I start Windows I get an error message saying that the Tages driver is blocked due to compatibility issues.  The Tages software does not appear in programs and features or in the list of drivers in the Device Manager (I also tried to change the display to show unused drivers and it still does not show).  I want to delete this driver.

    This is a bug with a fix.  For a long time I played the game and visited the forum so I know more exactly details.  But I run Windows 7 Ultimate 64 and the game works fine.  Also, I can confirm that it works well on Vista Ultimate 64.  Go to the official forum of The witchers to seek a solution.


    Here's the question I asked about the order of installation to play the game.


    As you can see, you are supposed to remove Tages.

    See here for more information.


    Alternatively, you can go here to remove Tages.


    The system error prevents you from the operating system correctly?

    I hope this has helped.  :)

    You can try the byAndre.Ziegler suggested in his previous post suggestions, but note that XP mode will only work if you have Windows 7 Professional / Enterprise / ultimate.

    Apart from this, you can install the program in compatibility mode and check if it works or not.

  • Satellite M70 with Vista - TCtrlIOHook.exe is blocked due to compatibility issues

    Hi guys,.

    Hoping I can pick your brain. I have the Satellite M70 and have (I think) installed most of the new drivers for Vista... but when I boot up I get "this program is blocked to compatibility issues" blah blah blah..., then says that he has

    Toshiba utility programs
    Publisher Toshiba
    Location C:\windows\system32\TCtrlIOHook.exe

    Can anyone of you tell me please
    one) where I can get a driver to solve this,
    (b) stop this message that appears whenever I start

    Thank you



    The TCtrlIOHook.exe belongs to the TOSHIBA Hotkey Utility control.
    All this FN keys needs to control the software and TOSHIBA Hotkey Utility is necessary if you want to use the function of the FN keys.

    (A) If you didn t find these utility for Vista on the Toshiba page then it seems that Toshiba don't provide this software for Vista for the M70 laptops.

    (b) If you want to stop the message appearing at the beginning of the boot process, you must remove it from the OS or you will prevent loading software!
    This can be done in the registry. You can remove entries from the RACE
    EntVersion entVersion\Run

  • EZ-TimeTrax software works not properly due to compatibility issues.

    Original title: Timetrax

    I have the ez-timetrax software.  It was working fine before, but now when I try to download the punches, it will start to download when it is at the end it just stops. He tells me how many punches are in the clock when I start it is connected to our network, and I think he keeps trying again and again to download the shots because when I press stop he will tell 200 punches abandoned when there are only 10 punches, or more if I leave it longer. We have tried everything.  When I troubleshoot it, it says the program is not compatible, but nothing seems to work to fix it. I am at a loss.

    Hi Michelle,

    Given that the problem seems to be related to compatibility, I suggest you to install the software in compatibility mode.

    However, please answer these questions so that we can properly diagnose the problem:

    1. what troubleshooting measures have you tried?

    2 did you do changes on the computer before this problem?

    It is a known issue between the Starforce Protection and Microsoft Vista operating system.

    The Starforce driver that is located on your CD/DVD is not compatible with Windows Vista.

    You must find a compatible driver Vista Star-Force.

    I tried to find one for you, but it seems that all Starforce Websites are down.

    I installed the game. When he finished, I clicked on the icon and was opening a window: "this program has compatibility issues. I tried to solve what makes a right-click on the icon, in "propieties" a part of "compatibility". I have swiched to "windows XP (service pack 2)", but when I tried to open the game, again got the same promblem. I tried to use the Troubleshoot utility, but I got the same error. Then I download the latest patch (1.74 (V) of the firaxis page. I get the DLL error, so I installed the DX that was on this page.
