Hi All,

I have a new PC with XP media centre as the operating system and my wife has bought some software for our son but it doesn't work on our PC.

When i look at the minimum requirements on the back of the software it says windows 95,98,2000,XP therefore why doesn't it work on my PC.

What is the software?

Hi Diodorus Siculus,

It was a reading, writing and Maths program from DK.

See if it will run in compatibility mode?

Don't know much about MCE but if you click here you can see how to do it in XP; should be similar in MCE.

Try conatacting DK; I've found them good in the past.

By the way, do you get any error messages? What happens when you try to run it?

Hi Diodorus Siculus,

When I tried to install the program it asked me if i wanted to install Quick Time 2.1 i clicked no then it installed the program but when i tried to run it it said i required memory of 3MB to run it.

The funny thing is my son has other software that says the minimum requirement is windows 98 and this runs with no problems at all.
