Hi from Scotland. I get the above error as soon as I try to install a program called Carsoft,which is a car diagnostic program. I have a freshly installed copy of XP on an IBM Thinkpad, there are no other programs installed on the hard drive. I have tried right clicking and choosing"run as administrator" but get the same result, had a good look around the net but can't find anything exactly the same as my problem. I have used sysinfo and posted the results below. I have no antivirus as I will not be using it online at any time. Thanks for your time.

Hi plodr it is version 7.4 for Mercedes benz, the software was used previously by the former laptop/carsoft owner, thanks for your reply.

That appears to be an IBM ThinkPad X20 2662 12.1" laptop that originally came with Windows 98 Second Edition and came with these specs:

Intel Pentium III 600 MHz processor

128 MB of PC100 RAM (supports a maximum of 320 MB)

20 GB hard drive

----------------------------------------------------------------

That old laptop isn't even capable of running Windows XP properly, let alone running expensive CARSOFT software in it.

It did have win 2000 on it, however that was giving the same type run error, I had thought putting XP on may have got rid of the fault, the XP compatibility test I tried before hand did not throw up any reason not too install it. Thanks.

Even if you were max it out with 320 MB of PC100 RAM, its Intel Pentium III 600 MHz processor and 100 MHz frontside bus speed would run Windows XP like a snail.

You really need to retire it to "computer heaven". :eek:

Would it give the run error that I am getting though?
I'm not familiar with CARSOFT, so I have no idea. :confused:

I downloaded a 22 page pdf trying to find computer requirements. Unfortunately the directions talked about coping all the files from the CD to the computer and turning off the av program. On page 12 it talks about moving cracks folders to locations. I stopped looking then.

Found the run time 75 error but it is for Vista and 7

Perhaps you tried to run the software from the CD rather than copying to the computer and tha't why it is complaining about the path.
