WINDOWS XP INSTALLATION

Kutokana na maswali mengi ya watu hapa kwenye anuani zetu tulizo ziweka kwenye link yenu ya contact us kama mpaka sasa haujajua ni jinsi gani unaweza kutupata anuani zetu za simu ya kiganjani na barua pepe angalia hapa http://www.complexsystem.net/support/contacts.html Sasa watu wengi wamekuwa watituuliza jinsi ya kuweza kufanya installation ya WINDOWS XP kwenye PC zao. COMPLEX SYSTEM kwa kuona umuhimu wao tumeona ni vyema kuweka jambo hili sawa kwa wakati hapa. Ngependa tuanze somo ila nitumie lugha kidogo kwa kukufanya kuwa rahisi kuelewa step bya step coz during the time of installation utatumia lugha hiyo. Lets start complexers: • History of Microsoft windows dates back to 1985 when it was first introduced, with many updates and releases and introduction of Windows 95 to windows 7 in October 2009. A personal computer comes already loaded with windows and a copy of it, directly making the consumers to just use windows and giving a slim chance to think for an alternative. This is how Microsoft’s’ hold is growing in the PC world. • Windows XP, the most popular operating system which was originally released in 2001, continues to dominate worldwide. Windows 7, though gaining global popularity, is yet to cross the windows Xp markets share across the globe. Windows Xp is extremely flexible with its strong hold on Application Support, Gaming, Speed and with wonderful Media Center that laid first steps in home entertainment. Definitely Microsoft Windows will still dominate in 2012 and beyond. • Microsoft Windows 7 is the company’s bestselling software till date. It has already crossed the magical 100 million mark. On one in every ten personal computers around the globe windows 7 is installed. Consumers as well as business users are adopting the OS. In other words Vista’s shortcomings are gaining the sales of Windows 7. However, Microsoft Windows will still dominate in 2012 and beyond. • The incredible features of Microsoft Windows make you hold to it! A better desktop to access the PC fast like never before, a very good taskbar and a smarter search. Sharing files and printers with Home Group is easy simple. It is built for speed with a 64-bit support. It has better wireless networking (laptops). • For the first time Windows Touch, including true multi-touch technology, needs just using your fingers to browse, flip photos, open files and folders. Media Streaming helps stream your music and videos from your computer to TV or a stereo. • It has the most powerful Internet Explorer with the ability to launch websites, right from the taskbar. With a friendly Action Center and Device Stage, this plays well with devices. Undoubtedly, Microsoft Windows will still dominate in 2012 and beyond. • Microsoft Windows 8 with foundation technology of Hyper-V could change everything, and dominate the future era of desktop virtualization. The latest build of Windows 8 has the Hyper-V in its Control Panel. It means that the virtualization layer runs on bare metal, not as a guest of the operating system. Till date Hyper-V was in particular, an entity available with Windows Server. If this is made as the foundation then the next version of Windows will revolutionize everything. It could fetch the best solution which is possible for desktop virtualization. In today’s scenario VDI (Virtual desktop infrastructure) in which the windows clients (usually a dumb terminal) are run in virtual machines in a server at the data center. There is no mobility because there has to be continuous connection between the two i.e., server and client. Along with this heavy duty server hardware enough network bandwidth is necessary. (VDI delivers security as well as centralized management). • In Windows 8 client hypervisor, which may be the role of Hyper-V, runs a Windows desktop inside the client instead of Server. Users would get the ability to run without connecting to the server and take with them windows virtual machines like a tablet or a laptop. The IT also enjoys the security and manageability benefits of VDI. • Hats off to Microsoft for a complete fresh approach to the platform of mobile and niche presence in the mobile phone market giving tough competition to Google and Apple. Windows Phone 7 series is slick and well organized. With a whole new navigation system it has a fresh look totally. Zune, the media player of Microsoft’s personal is the main draw. So Microsoft’s windows presence is not only limited to PC world. It is moving towards the mobile industry too. With this assured is that Microsoft Windows will still dominate in 2012 and beyond. • Microsoft Windows is best at security Features. It is safe and secure for both enterprise and PC. It is best at protecting users from security threats and other viruses. MICROSOFT WINDOWS INSTALLER The Windows Installer (previously known as Microsoft Installer) is a software component used for the installation, maintenance, and removal of software on modern Microsoft Windows systems. The installation information, and often the files themselves, are packaged in installation packages, loosely relational databases structured as COM Structured Storages and commonly known as "MSI files", from their default file extension. Windows Installer contains significant changes from its predecessor, Setup API. New features include a GUI framework and automatic generation of the uninstallation sequence. Windows Installer is positioned as an alternative to stand-alone executable installer frameworks such as older versions of InstallShield and NSIS. Microsoft encourages third parties to use Windows Installer as the basis for installation frameworks, so that they synchronize correctly with other installers and keep the internal database of installed products consistent. Important features such as rollback and versioning depend on a consistent internal database for reliable operation. Furthermore, Windows Installer facilitates the principle of least privilege by performing software installations by proxy for unprivileged users. Windows XP is an operating system produced by Microsoft for use on personal computers, including home and business desktops, laptops and media centers. First released to computer manufacturers on August 24, 2001, it is the second most popular version of Windows, based on installed user base. The name "XP" is short for "eXPerience." Windows XP, the successor to Windows 2000 and Windows Me, was the first consumer-oriented operating system produced by Microsoft to be built on the Windows NT kernel. Windows XP was released worldwide for retail sale on October 25, 2001, and over 400 million copies were in use in January 2006. It was succeeded by Windows Vista in January 2007. Direct OEM and retail sales of Windows XP ceased on June 30, 2008. Microsoft continued to sell Windows XP through their System Builders (smaller OEMs who sell assembled computers) program until January 31, 2009. On April 10, 2012, Microsoft reaffirmed that extended support for Windows XP and Office 2003 would end on April 8, 2014 and suggested that administrators begin preparing to migrate to a newer OS. The NT-based versions of Windows, which are programmed in C, C++, and assembly, are known for their improved stability and efficiency over the 9x versions of Microsoft Windows. Windows XP presented a significantly redesigned graphical user interface, a change Microsoft promoted as more user-friendly than previous versions of Windows. A new software management facility called Side-by-Side Assembly was introduced to ameliorate the "DLL hell" that plagued 9x versions of Windows. It is also the first version of Windows to use product activation to combat illegal copying. INSTALLING WINDOWS XP Installation process Installing Windows XP can take up to two hours.

Upgrade to Windows XP To take advantage of the benefits provided by Windows XP, you may not have to buy a new computer. Provided your hardware will support it, almost any version of Windows—including Windows 98, Windows Millenium (Me), and Windows 2000—can be upgraded to Windows XP. To see if your hardware is able to support Windows XP, you can check the system requirements for Windows XP Home Edition and Windows XP Professional Edition.

The upgrade process takes between one and two hours, but you'll only need to be at your computer for about 30 minutes of this time.

If you do not have the Windows XP CD, you can buy a Windows XP upgrade online or at most stores that sell software. You have the product key available. The product key is located on your Windows XP CD case and is required to install and activate Windows XP. You have a recent backup of your important files. The upgrade process should not remove your files; however, a backup will protect you from hardware failure or other unexpected problems. Note: Windows XP Setup will automatically verify that your computer is compatible with Windows XP and that you have sufficient disk space.
