Having problems with your Disney Interactive Adventures in Typing with Timon & Pumbaa for Windows, Mac ?

Screen display problems when running Adventures in Typing

\015 Installation seemed to work fine on XP machine, but when I run the program, it starts out ok typing the D-I-S-N-E-Y, then changes to a funky x-ray like color scheme. I have set compatibility properties to run for Win95 and tried 256-color. Nothing helps. I ran this program on another XP machine and worked ok.\015

Answers :

I bought this for my daughters back in 2000. Now I find my mother wants to become a silver surfer and she would like to learn how to type letters. I tried using Adventures in typing on her laptop and saw that there were compatability issues. After a lot fo experimneting I found asloution that works every time and is as simple as can be. this is what I did (and printed out for my Mum:-)

\015\012Hi Mum :-)
\015\012Video problems with Adventures in typing with Timone and Poomba
\015\012
\015\012There are compatibility issues with Windows Vista and this program
\015\012
\015\012To overcome these problems we need to force windows Vista to use an
older Video format (from the days when the program was first published).

\015\012
\015\012A short cut has been created and placed on your desktop.
\015\012The compatibility (properties) on the short cut have been set to –
\015\012
    \015\012
  • Windows 95
  • \015\012
  • 256 colours
  • \015\012
  • 640 x 480
\015\012
\015\012To create the short cut –
\015\012Place the CD-rom in the Disc bay and hold down the Shift key while the the CD-rom boots up. This prevents Autorun.
\015\012Now use Windows Explorer to look at the files and folders on the CD-rom.
\015\012Look for the Setup.exe file.
\015\012Right click on it to create a short cut that will be placed on your desktop.
\015\012Go to the short cut and right click on it to select the properties.
\015\012Now change the compatibility to the settings mentioned above.
\015\012Remove the CD-rom from the disc bay.
\015\012
\015\012This is how to use the program Adventures in typing with Timone and Poomba on a computer running Windows Vista
\015\012
\015\012
    \015\012
  1. Do not put the CD-rom in the computer until you are asked
  2. \015\012
  3. Indentify the shortcut/icon on your desktop to start the program
    Click on this shortcut/icon
  4. \015\012
  5. When the computer asks for the CD-rom, place it in the disc bay and wait for the program to start.
  6. \015\012
  7. Use the program as normal.
  8. \015\012
  9. To quit the program so that it saves the progress you have made – use the QUIT symbol in the program’s screen
  10. \015\012
  11. When the program has shut-down, remove the CD-rom from the disc bay
\015\012Note that steps 1 through to 7 have to be done every time the program is started and stopped.
\015\012
\015\012You will not have to do anything to put settings back to where they should be – Windows Vista will do that automatically.
\015\012
\015\012This is how to stop any program if you are having problems and can not see how to stop it.
\015\012
    \015\012
  1. Press the following two keys together Ctrl Alt
  2. \015\012
  3. While holding those two keys down, press a third key – the Delete key
  4. \015\012
  5. A menu will pop up.
    Click once on the Task Manager option
  6. \015\012
  7. A new window will open with a list of the programs that are running on your computer. Click once on the program that is causing the problem.
  8. \015\012
  9. At the bottom of the new window click on End Task
  10. \015\012
  11. The program that was causing the problem will be shut down for you.
\015\012Note that using this method is a sort of emergency stop so it will not save any new work you have done on the program/file.
