Virtual machine with windows 7 on windows 10

Windows 8.1

Hi, I had a previous PC with a genuine windows 7 Professional installed. I needed to change the PC and the new one has a genuine Windows 10 Pro. Unfortunately some of the software I used (i.e. IBM WDSC - Visual Age RPG programming) does not run on windows 10. So I tried to set a virtual machine using Hyper-V but when I enter the previous original key for the old windows 7, I receive the message "The product key does not match current Windows SKU". How can I re-use my previous key? Thank you Antonio Enna

Epic games launcher

Windows 8.1

Hi im Eddie... I own an Xbox one... and i want to buy & download windows 10 & Epic games launcher "Unreal Engine 4" unto my xbox one so that i can design games on xbox one for xbox one... using windows 10 & Epic games launcher. My problem is xbox's one system hardware info (googled) says: xbox one runs two operating systems within a hypervisor; games run witin one seperate operating system, while apps and the user interface run within a stripped-down "core" variant of windows 10, sometimes referred to as "windows 10 on xbox one." My problem is when i try to download epic games launcher onto the xbox one it loads a screen saying: Xbox one doesn't support downloading files to local storage... After brainstorming i figured a way around this would be to purchase an xbox one seagate portable 2TB Hard Drive, then actually buy and download windows 10 directly onto the xbox one so that i can then download Epic games launcher directly onto the xbox one... but will it work???

Files become corrupted when copying to SDXC memory in Windows 10

Windows 8.1

I have an ongoing issue copying mp3 files to SDXC memory cards in Win 10. I have a music directory with approx 50GB stored. Regardless if I drag the entire directory or if I copy groups of folders from the directory in batches at some point between oh let's say 8 and 10 GB copied the data copied after that is corrupted. The folders are all visible but the folders after that magic point in the process are empty. The folders before that point are fine. I have done this with various brands and sizes of SDXC cards (128 and 256) with the same results. The cards are formatted eFat. And it has made no difference which PC or laptop I use, again same result. And it is not always at the same spot in the process or at any specific folder. I initially considered that some of the original files could be corrupted however all of the files on the hard drive from which I am copying show no evidence of problems and all of the files play as they should on whatever player I choose. I have performed "scan and repair" as well to no avail. It has made no difference in what order if any I copy the files, always similar result. Any thoughts??????

What is the file name to upload a web site via microsoft edge?

Windows 8.1

I have a new problem after many years of happily uploading my club web site. It will not upload and I get the message: Unable to open using this path iexplore.exe Go to file-preview site-browser preview list to refresh your browser list When I follow this instruction there are file names for Mozilla Firefox, which I never use, and for Internet explorer. The message then comes: Unable to open using this path iexplore.exe How can I get it to work with Edge please?

Activate windows! MY GOD

Windows 8.1

I have a genuine Windows 10, store bought, but when I upgraded parts and reset it, it said that I was running a fake version! I don't have my product key. That thing is long gone, but I can't get that FREAKING WATERMARK to go away! Help me please. Also I don't have the xbox app but CSGO still says I have it on, the bad thing about that is that it is a major performance hit. Thanks.

Setting up an email client

Windows 8.1

I am still having difficult setting up an e-mail client for my Windows 10 PC. I use outlook and had an e-mail from one tech recently that stated that what I needed to do is "attach" the file or photo from an e-mail. This is absolutely ridiculous! I have always been able to "send" a file or photo to someone and not have to go to my e-mail and then attach something. What are the solutions to this problem? I have run a scan from the CMD prompt (administrator) and there seems to be no problem. What do I need to do to be able to send an a file or photo to a friend or relative by right clicking on it and sending via email. I get an error code that I have no email client installed. My Windows 7 did better than this. What am I doing wrong?
