A. Add your serial number Most of our program will work on a Vista or Windows 7, 64-bit computers. It’s the file that starts the installer that is causing the problem. Here are two different ways to get around that:
When you insert the disk in the drive, the program should attempt to launch an install wizard for the program automatically. In this case, the AutoPlay dialog box will appear. However, instead of choosing to "Run Autorun.exe’ or "install the program", you should choose "Open folder to view files". Then locate the program’s setup file, called Setup or Setup.exe. Right Click on the file and choose Run as Administrator. When it asks you if you want the program to run, choose Allow. Then follow the on screen instructions.
If the AutoPlay dialog box doesn’t appear but gives you an error message instead, cancel the error message. Then go to the Start button, click on the Computer icon. Once in the Computer screen, you should see the CD with the program icon. Right-click on the icon and choose "Explore" or "Open". Then locate the program’s setup file, called Setup or Setup.exe. Right Click on the file and choose Run as Administrator. When it asks you if you want the program to run, choose Allow. Then follow the on screen instructions.

They are the very first editions of Foundation Factory Standard Edition Volume 1 and The Carol Doak Designer Edition Volume 1.
