Question

My PC is running Windows 7 Pro. with all the latest updates as of 2-17-2012. Running 64 bit. MY PC is an i3-2100 CPU@3.10 GHz with 4 GB of RAM. It just gives me an error message telling me that "This Operating System does not meet minimum requirements for Roxio Easy VHS to CD." Will not install.

I have tried shutting off all programs in start up and shutting down my firewall and Norton. Still get the same message.?? Thanks for any help.

Follow this link to a post that has two more links to click to.

 

Read them both and follow the directions.

 

Any problems stop back.

I tried the method suggested but when I right clicked and opened properties the wrong type of window opened up. Could not do the needed conversion. So I did this instead. I have an XP program that I had to do this with. Just wished it would have opened with Windows 7 without doing all this.

Here is my solution.

 

I right clicked over start up. Then Clicked on Troubleshoot compatibility. It wanted to fix it buy running it in XP mode. But you can drill through and get a list and then go to Vista service pack 1. That worked. Vista service pack 2 was on the list and it might work also with more updates in it. I don't know because it loaded with service pack 1. Using Vista without any service would not work.

 

Good luck and thanks.

Right-click setup.exe and select Properties, Choose the Compatibility tab and check that "Run this program in compatibility mode for Windows Vista" is not enabled

 

How hard can it be?

I was trying to open it off from a CD and my drop down when I right clicked over "Setup" doesn't look the same. It was much smaller and when I opened Properties it is different. Smaller with only "General, Hardware, Sharing, and Customize." As options to look at. I am not getting the drop down that you are showing.

 

But the program has been opening every time and running. If my windows 7 is running in any mode other than Windows 7 I don't know how to tell. I have installed a Blue-Ray player/burner and all its software loaded with out a hitch as well as the software from Sony that came with my HD recorder. (that I love )

 

Thank you for running through the steps again. I tried these steps just now and got the same results as in the past. I also just tried it over a Program icon on my main screen and got the drop-down that you are showing. ??? I am not a Windows expert and don't know why it would do these different thing with the drop-downs. But it worked. B)

I also already down-loaded the upgrade to "VHS to CD 3" and it ran/loaded with out a hitch.

 

Like I said thanks.

Ah! I think I see what happened... :mellow:

 

Most likely you have your 'Hide Extensions' in the Control Panel - Folder Options, turned ON:

That means you cannot see there is a "Setup.dfc" file as well as a "Setup.exe"... The right click context menus are different:

And the Properties are different as well:

I am glad it has worked out and we will see you in the Easy VHS to DVD 3 Plus forum :lol:

Good catch Jim..

 

Why didn't MichiganRay tell us he doesn't show a 'setup.exe'?

 

Sonic Boom and Roxio's KB article clearly stated,

 

Right-click setup.exe and select Properties not setup.dcf!

 

Even with pics in post # 5 and MichiganRay saying he tried it again he doesn't click the correct setup?

Anyway even with hide extensions enabled if you click the correct icon you get what you need.

Don't know??? probably didn't realize the subtle differences between them :huh:

 

I hate to admit the hours I spent disecting code while overlooking a '0' vs 'O' or who would have guessed that a ':' vs a ';' would make such a huge difference in how a machine processed its' code :huh: (figured it out after a couple tons of scrap :( )
