Chapter 5. Installing and Running Applications

Chapter 5. Installing and Running Applications

In This Chapter

It’s a rare (and no doubt unproductive) user who does nothing but run Windows on his or her computer. After all, when Windows starts, it doesn’t do much of anything. No, to get full value for your computing dollar, you have to run an application or two. As an operating system, it’s Windows’ job to help make it easier for you to run your programs. Whether it’s loading them into memory, managing their resources, or printing their documents, Windows has plenty to do behind the scenes. Windows Vista also comes with a few tools and techniques that you can use to make your applications run faster and more reliably. In this chapter, you’ll learn how to install applications safely, how to launch applications, and how to solve program incompatibility issues.
