Question

Recommended Posts

Probably what has happened there Lynn is the seller has installed the OS and then run the updates before shipping (that's normal practise here anyway).

 

If that's the case, then IE7 can be removed by using add/remove in control panel

If it's a VERY new install of WinXP, it might not have IE 6 in it

Might want to check that timeline. Microsoft to launch Windows XP in New York on Oct. 25 2001. Browser timeline Internet Explorer for Windows Version 6.0 October 2001.

I think that she may be referring to the fact that there have been a few versions of XP that came out, long after the initial release.

 

The version of XP Pro, that I just purchased, includes the original SP2, circa late 2004. Unless someone is installing a slipstreamed XP, IE 6 is the standard install, even with the later versions, and IE 7 isn't there, unless you update to it.

 

But, I can see why Lynn suggested the possibility, in her post.

Wasn't IE6 the browser that came with XP?

It was ORIGINALLY.

 

However, when I bought my WinXP, it came with SP2 - that was about 2 years ago.

 

And I've seen posts by people who bought WinXP computers in late 2006, that came with IE 7. I'm not sure they have IE 6.

It did on my computer. Once you uninstall IE 7, you should get IE 6 back. But that doesn't solve the problem of the error message. :(

I know how to add and remove programs, I can't find MS7 to remove it. Where would it be other than in the control panel? I see it in the program files, but not in the add/remove.

thanks again,

Andy

What kind of files, an which program within the suite are you using?

 

It is possible you are making data discs of the files, rather than the special format recognizable by standalone DVD players.

To add to what ogdens said.....I'm going to assume that you're using DVD Builder to burn the DVDs.

 

Some DVD players prefer +R DVDs and others prefer -R DVDs. Most DVD players say that they'll play both kinds, but in reality, they don't. I have a DVD player that prefers +R.

 

Also, check the website of your computer/DVD burner manufacturer and see if they have recommended 'brands' of DVDs that will work best with their burner.

Hi There, You seem to know a bit about EMC7, maybe you can help me?

After re-installing EMC7 for the umpteen time I get an error message saying: ERROR: unable to load Resource Manager, when I try to run DVD builder or Videowave !

Any suggestions?

Thanks

Bruno

You might try Microsoft Customer Support.

 

Those directions have worked for others and if they don't work for you Microsoft should be able to tell you why.

Sorry. That's me not being my usual 'over explain it' self. It's been a busy week.

 

Thanks for explaining it, Bruce.

It has nothing to do with SP2, which came out in late 2004. The link that ml posted, tells how to remove IE7. Click on that link.

Ml, thanks..... But like I said, I removed MP11 but I don't see Microsoft Internet Explorer 7 in the Add or Remove Window . Could it be Windows XP Service pack 2
