Windows Vista, will not let me install the software! follow-up of the steps and nothing

I tried to solve this problem for some time now with no results, I searched online and nothing. all the programs I try to install start and acts like it will install but never finished or shows me the error message. I turned to (UAC) and nothing. tried right click and run as administrator nothing.  just finished installation fix the beta program and once again no result. even allow me to install the updates as vista service pack 1 or 2 and yes I do ensure that the programs are vista compatible. the knowledgeable answers would be apreciated thx in advance.

This error message you get?
The problem just started recently?

  • Satellite L850 - Win8.1 will not let me install the chipset drivers


    After I've upgraded to pro 8.1 windows 64 bit 64-bit windows 8 (preinstalled), I thought that windows will not let me install the chipset drivers (downloaded from "toshiba site" for windows 8.1 pro 64-bit), but they stay with windows drivers installed for them.
    The Device Manager displays all installed and properly using. In addition, during the implementation was executed to install the chipset driver, he skipped most of them, to install a missing driver only (unfortunately have not kept any screen to show). I tried to install using the Device Manager (automatic search or manually navigating the computer files downloaded from the site), but it keeps saying that the drivers are up-to-date (drivers with the version from 2006, when later seen on the site are 2014). Any suggestion what to do?

  • Windows 7 will not let me install my Kodak Digital Camera C875 camera.

    Someone can tell me why Windows 7 will not let me install my camera, worked very well in Visa, any help out there?

    Original title: Kodak Digital Camera C875

    The best way to manage old cameras that have compatibility problems is not to connect the camera to the computer, but rather to remove the memory card from the camera and use a desktop card reader to make transfers.

    If your computer lacks a built-in card reader, you can buy very cheap () USB card readers

  • Windows Update will not find or install the updates

    I turned on my laptop last night after several months of inactivity, and when I ran Windows Update I met an interesting problem. Windows Update took a long time to look so I decided to let it run all night. When I checked on this subject in the morning, Windows Update has been always looking, but I had already received a notification in the taskbar informing me that there are updates available.

    I could not cancel the search, so I restarted my laptop, and when I logged Windows again, I saw the list of the updates that are available even if the "last check for updates" was always showing "22/05/2016 at 22:46. I selected all important updates and tried to download and install them, but after several hours, the status was still stuck at 0%. I canceled the installation and noticed that the update of Silverlight has been downloaded and ready to be installed. I tried to update only one without success and was finally able to get it by allowing Windows Installer updates immediately before the power off of the laptop. When I turned my phone back and connected, I could do the same for an update of the framework.

    So far, those who have been the only two updates to cross, and I could not download or install the rest. An additional problem is that my Windows Update always displays a prompt stating "Windows 10 upgrade booked" despite the deadline passing on the free update. When I see the confirmation, I get a popup Windows 10 stating that the offer has ended. I don't know if this is related to why Windows Update does not work, but I saw more guests for 10 Windows on my main computer once the delay.

    Other things I've tried are to update manually the time at the time of Microsoft servers and try to download and install the updates one at a time, but neither contributed to the situation. In addition, Microsoft Security Essentials apparently downloaded and installed the latest definition files on its own, so it would seem that the problem is only related to Windows Update.

    I've attached screenshots of my Windows Update history and update. Any help would be appreciated.

    If using your firewall software, then it depends on where the settings to disable the firewall.

    Once the game has installed switch back on the firewall, this should allow the firewall to accept the sims 3, if not you will need to go into the settings of exceptions and add sims 3 for her.

  • Windows 8 will not let me move the AppData\Local folder to new drive


    I wanted to get my user account files from C drive which is a smaller SSD drive at most of my hard drive. I encountered several problems.

    A lot of trial and error, I was able to move each file of folder of the user account to an identical structure on my drive D (a "spinner"). Once I worked on all the kinks, everything worked without problems.

    However, I was unable to move the hidden AppData folder. I discovered there are three subfolders: roaming local and LocalLow. I was able to move LocalLow and roaming without problem. However, Local gave me problems.

    I discovered that the Local had some folders and files under it for which I have no permissions. Once I gained permissions for them, I thought I was on my way. The command to move the folder (using the Properties dialog box) has started working on the transition of 79 000 files. He moved all but 19 of them. He choked on all 12-15 files that have been opened and used by the system and the balance of the 19 had too long of a file name. So, I was disappointed.

    I then decided to create another administrator account and the sign of the current account and connect to the temporary administrator account that I had just created. I thought that I could then move the files because they would not be opened and used by the system. But, when I open the Properties dialog box, the LOCATION tab was gone, so I could not move the files.

    I need answers to two questions:

    • Why Microsoft would give the user a LOCATION tab with a NAVIGATION button, if it was impossible to move the AppData\Local folder?
    • Is there another way that a layman like me can change this setting? Can someone direct me to here? (Such as it is, 2 of the 3 AppData files are on drive D and 1 is always the SSD C drive.)

    Thank you.


    OK, I fixed using a symbolic link. I moved my complete record of users. Here are the steps I used:

    • Create a folder on the "C" drive, called "this_is_c" and create a folder on the disk "D", called "this_is_d" - it is only for identification purposes in the later stages.
    • Boot from the Windows 8 Pro disc. (In other words, will not start hard drive.)
    • Do not choose 'Install now' - choose ' repair you computer.
    • Then choose troubleshooting
    • Choose Advanced Options
    • Then choose command line
    • The player that appears corresponds to the player 'X' - which is the recovery disk.
    • Type "C:" to switch to the 'C' drive
    • Type "Dir" and see if you see the folder "this_is_c".
    • If you do not, continue to change letters until you see this folder.
    • It worked that the 'C' drive during this "repair" was maybe the same as my 'C' drive when I boot normally.
    • Find the "D" drive through the same process - that is, try to find the folder "this_is_d".
    • It worked that the "D" drive during this "repair" was maybe the same as my "D" drive when I boot normally.
    • Type this command: xcopy/e/k/o/h/b c:\Users d:\Users see the next chip
    • First drive name must be the name of the drive as the "repair" attributed to your normal boot drive 'C '. The second disc should be burned as it would be during a normal boot. So, in my case, these conditions were the same. Note: use a capital 'U' for users instead of lowercase 'u' in users.
    • Type "D" when prompted.
    • Type the following command: rd /s c:\Users
    • Type this command: mklink /d c:\Users d:\Users
    • Type this command: exit
    • Continue to start.

    This will create a symbolic link that will redirect all actions to or from users on 'C' folder in the new folder users on "D". In regards to windows system knows, he is still sending the disk of 'C '. It is just redirected.

    This works perfectly for me. I installed apps and run programs without problem.

    It's a sort of understand. But it works for me.
