Getting Giggles Baby™ to work in Windows 8, WIndows 7 or Vista

In order to have a Giggles Baby™ program work in Windows 8, 7, or Vista AFTER you've successfully installed the program on your computer, you must update the program to be Vista compatible using one of our Vista Updaters. They can be downloaded from here.

  • Download the Vista Updater for the Giggles Baby program that you own
  • Run the Updater, it will let you know it has been successfully installed
  • Restart your computer

Everything should work as expected from that point forward.

If you are having trouble getting the installer to launch on the actual install CD, you must:

1) Place the Main Program Install CD in to the computer
2) Navigate to My Computer in the Start Menu and locate the CD-ROM
3) Right-click on the CD and choose Explore
4) if you see a directory called English and one for Spanish, double-click the English to open that directory.
5) Inside there you will find an English Setup file - double click that file

That should launch the English installer and go through the installation of the program on to your computer. Once the installation is complete, you will likely need to update the program with our free Vista/Windows 8/7 Updater files available here.

Installing in Mac OS X 10.5 - 10.6.8 (Leopard & Snow Leopard)

In order to get a Giggles Baby™ program installed on a Mac system running Leopard, you must download our Leopard Installer Patch and use that to install the program. The patch can be downloaded from here.

  • Download the Installer Patch
  • Insert your Main Program Install CD in the CD drive
  • Run the Installer Patch

The program should now be installed in a folder on your desktop and you should be all set.
