I want to change my OS to Windows7 codes issues

Asked By 10 points N/A Posted on -

I have lot of Visual Basic source codes which was developed in Windows XP system. I have transferred all codes to a Windows 7 system and it is working properly and can create the ‘.exe’ file. But the problem is that ‘.exe’ file is only working in the Windows 7 system.

It is not running in the Windows XP system. Most of my clients are using Windows XP only. Further I have transferred the forms to Windows XP machine and created the ‘.exe’ file. It is working properly in Windows XP machine. As I want to change my OS to Windows 7 this problem should be solved.

Please help me to solve the issue. Please help me to get out this problem.

Thanks in advance.

My suggestions are:

For Windows 7:

a. Copy all codes in Visual Studio 2005/2008 or later version. Write/change the codes accordingly and Compile it using the Visual 2005/2008. Only then it should get the proper support for windows 7.

b. Install visual Studio 6 in Windows 7. Compile your source code in Visual studio 6. Then right click the main exe file > Click properties>Click Compatibility> set the compatibility mode to Windows 7. From the bottom, click/tick ‘Run as administrator’. Click Apply then OK. Now run your EXE file.

Distribute the EXE file & programs (complied in Windows 7) machines in Windows 7 based PC.

For Windows XP:

Try the previous Point a. and b. again. But this time, install your Visual studio program in Windows XP machine and compile your EXE file in Windows XP environment. If the compiled program runs in Windows XP machine well then distribute it among the Windows XP users.

Lastly, put the program & EXE file on the main server. Now, run the exe file from server. Run the EXE file from the Client’s Windows XP. Try to Interconnect/ share or open files related to this program. If all process well, you got your answer.
