Unable To Unzip Files (GIMP Photoshop Brushes)

Aug 6, 2009

I can't seem to Un zip my zipped files. What I am trying to do is unzip brushes for GIMP (it's like photoshop) and the brushes need to be unzipped and placed in a folder in GIMPS brush folder for them to work.


I download the files and go to unzip them but the icon has changed (to a firefox symbol). My comp tells me that its a zip file but the option for unzipping just isn't there and I can't figure out what program they need to be opend with in order to get them to unzip. If thats even what the solution is. What am I to do?

Cannot Unzip Downloaded Files 9documents Or Spreadsheets)

Feb 10, 2010

I cannot unzip downloaded files - these being simple documents or spreadsheets. The zipped folder is displayed and I can choose settings to extract all files but once i browse to the extracted folder it is empty. There are no error messages. I see in my file associations that .zip is not there but have already used the tutorials to restore and re-associate the zip files with the built in utility. The only associations are for .zfsendtotarget and .zipenx. A month or so ago, I got so annoyed with this I installed Winzip but this didn't work either! I'm using Windows Home Premium and IE8.

Don't Date Taken Blank Photoshop Files

Sep 17, 2008

I have thousands of photos in a variety of formats, including photoshop, and when I look at them using windows explorer (Vista Ultimate, with classic folder view turned on, and “details” chosen from “Views”) the files are listed as Name, Date Taken, Tags, Size, and Rating. I really don’t care about the date taken, which is blank for all PhotoShop files, I want to see the date created, or modified – the way it was displayed in XP. This only happens with folders that are dominated by graphics. Is there a way to replace “Date Taken” with “Date Created?”

32-Bit Vs. 64-bit, Batch Processing Of Camera RAW Files With Photoshop CS3

Mar 23, 2008

I've got a Dell D830 with Vista Ultimate 32-bit pre-installed. It's got the max 4GB of RAM installed. I do not yet own any software or hardware which claims it can benefit from 64-bit so what are the advantages? I will not be doing any gaming but I will be doing a lot of batch processing of camera RAW files with Photoshop CS3. The guys in the Photoshop forum said there is no benefit really unless I was able to load more RAM.

Gimp Stopped Working

Aug 7, 2009

i have used Gimp for a long time. I got a new hp vista home premium 64.

i installed it in the new comp. it worked fine for 2 weeks. Then I got the message like :" Gimp has stopped working. Windows will let you know if a solution is found." I uninstalled and installed 3 more times. Same message. I saw on forums on Microsoft to go to reg. and delete gimp stuff. i deleted only what said gimp but only after the 2 uninstall, as this scared me.

Anyway,Same problem. Please help me. I have written to Gimp, Microsoft, Gimptalk, HP. No answer from anyone. I do my work on Gimp. I lost all of my personal Gimp brushes and patterns. (my fault, didn't back up on new laptop yet)...

Unzip Programs Asks For Permission

Aug 28, 2009

If I use winrar or 7zip or whatever, Vista won't extract the files. Winrar says I don't have the rights to do so and won't let me tell it to do anything. 7zip acts as if it is working but the file never extracts. If I open up the folder to extract to and drag the files from the zipper program it asks for permission and will complete the task. how to tell Vista to allow extractions from winrar or 7zip

Undeletable Files :: Unable To Delete 0 Kb Files

I am running Vista Ultimate 32 bit. I have a folder on my desktop named Downloads that I use for, shockingly, downloads. Anyway, there are a couple of files in the folder that are, apparently, not really there. They are like ghost files. They used to exist but now they are still visible but not recognized by any program. Also, they have a size of 0 kb!

I'd like to get rid of them but they refuse to be deleted. When I try to delete them, I get this:

Unable To Open Zip Files In Vista

Nov 19, 2009

Since installing AVG 9 I have a few problems, one which is now known to AVG that attachements cannot be sent in the likes of Yahoo and Sky Mail, this has gone to the developers.

This one may not be AV related so thought I would ask here.

I have been unzipping files in Vista with no problem, after the download of AVG 9 I am unable to open them.

When I right click on the file I do not get Extract all in the list.

I do not know which is the program that opens zip files within Vista and so I am unable to tell it which program to Open with.

Unable To Access Files From Previous OS

Jan 13, 2010

I own a Toshiba Qosmio x300(running on Vista home premium x64) and recently my oldest laptop, HP (windows XP pro x32), died from overheating.

Lucky for me, the hdd is still alive as I have some VERY important files on it (Work related)

The problem is that I cannot retrieve them:

here's exactly what I did:

I inserted my HP's hdd into my Toshiba.

(tried booting from XP but could not start windows since it seems to crash after the loading screen with the XP logo) (Also tried booting in safe mode, but same result)

So, I booted successfully from vista.

when I try to access the "My Documents" folder of the windows XP administrator account from windows vista, it says: Access denied.

I tried also making an administrator account from vista(exact name, case sensitive and same password) hoping to achieve success but no such luck.. I tried various software unlockers but none of them worked.

Unable To Share Files Between XP And Vista

Feb 2, 2008

Ive just installed Vista Ultimate 64 bit on my comp and im having trouble sharing files with another computer that has WinXP 32bit installed. Ive checked that the workgroup names are the same and that file sharing is enabled, but it wont allow me to access files on my vista machine FROM the winxp machine. I have no trouble accessing files on the winxp machine from my vista machine, but it wont work the other way around. It gives me an access denied error due to permissions, even though I let it have full control. Could this be because the 32bit is clashing with the 64 bit? Because I previously have winxp installed on both machines and file sharing was working fine.

Acces Files From 2003 :: Unable To Access

Dec 23, 2008

I have recently bought a new laptop which runs Vista Business, the problem I am getting is with Access. With my work I use Access databases which have the following files (please be aware I am an absolute novice when it comes to Access I literally fill in the blanks) "rpt.mdb" and "rpt_be.mdb". To start the database I double click rpt.mdb to bring up the front end of my report writing software. When I do this now the screen I usually get isn't complete and I can't access any data or input anything. The files were originally created in Access 2003 and they don't seemed to have converted over well.

XP Network - Computers Unable To Share Files

Apr 23, 2008

I have a home office network with one new Dell laptop with Windows Vista Home Basic which I bought a couple of weeks ago, one desktop with Windows XP Pro and one older laptop with Windows XP Pro. The laptops are connected wirelessly, the desktop is using a wired Ethernet connection.

Obviously, there have been never a problem with XP machines. Initially, the Vista machine was also able to connect to everybody else. I didn't even bother to look at the settings because everything worked. Then I went to a business trip, and connected to other networks, including wireless public ones in the airports. When I came back, I was unable to share files or even see other computers on the LAN. The internet connection is working fine though. Oh yes, and I also installed a couple of updates, probably some of those constituting Service Pack 1 as well.

When I checked the network, to my surprise, it turned out that it became "Public" (could this be "guilt by association" - the airport wireless networks are public, so my home network is public, too?). I changed it to "Private". Didn't help. Checked shares, made sure that the users have the same passwords. Ditto. I deleted the history of the airport networks. Still the same.........

Unable To Find Files On Removed Hard Drive

Nov 22, 2009

My laptop motherboard fried, so I removed the hard drive and purchased a caddy. When I plug the hard drive in to my new desktop PC I am able to see that only 4GB of the 100 GB capacity is available (as should be the case). However, I cannot see any of my files on there (folders I had created on the desktop etc.).

The only folders I can see are PerfLogs, Program Files, SwSetup, Users, Windows and two of my personal folders (both containing some photos). I really need to find the rest of my files as I have 12GBs of photos and videos of my baby boy on there, and would be gutted if I cannot access them again (for obvious reasons). Nothing else is important.

Unable To Open Word By Clicking On Document Files

Jul 3, 2008

I have installed Works Suite 2006 in my Vista Home Premium computer. Everything works fine apart from Word 2002. I am unable to open Word by clicking on document files. If I double click on a document file in Explorer nothing happens. If I right click and select Open With, and then click on wordicon, nothing happens. I am also unable to launch Word from the Works Suite program launcher. I can open Word, no problem, and it appears to work fine, but to edit a document I have to search for it from within Word, which is often inconvient. I have un-installed the suite, and re-installed it, but the problem still persists.

Unable To Delete Invalid Shortcuts And Paths Of Deleted Files

Dec 18, 2008

I am also facing a similiar issue, like given in the thread - Cannot delete shortcut file

I cant deleted some invalid paths and shortcuts in the system....

Here when I open any application and try to insert or open a file for that application, I am facing the problem.

For Example,

In VLC Player, I click on Media --> Open File

This gives you the Box to select the file you want and in the bottom of that small window in the " File name " box, you will be having a drop down box to select the file.

Here all the deleted files are listed with the file name and path, which was deleted months ago...

When you select the file it says, "Path does not exist, try again"

So, I think all the invalid shortcuts are stored some where in the system, which displays there.

So we need to deleted that particular cache.

I found out that there is something called " Indexed Cache " in Vista, which saves all the shortcuts as the files are stored.

I need to find out how to delete the file shortcuts from that location.


Similiar issue is there in Outlook 2007, when I compose a new message and insert file.

It gives the drop down box like the above issue with all the deleted files path.


I tried rebuilding the Indexing Options as advised before.

It didnt work.

I performed all the basic steps, like deleting cookies,temp files from system,ran chkdsk,disk cleanup, and also used some popular and unpopular cleaning software and nothing worked.

Photoshop CS-4 Incompatability 64-bit

Sep 21, 2009

Bought Gateway 64-bit Vista in 1/09, installed Photoshop CS-4 and it has never worked. (9 months of frequent, blue-screen crashes with any fairly large Photoshop files, but also random crashes in everything from simple OS operations to internet operation.) Had computer back to Gateway 4X, and Re-installed CS-4 just as often - bugged both customer service people repeatedly, and they simply blame each other. Tried all sorts of trouble-shooting ops with CS-4 preferences. e.g. Disabled Open GL Drawing - no change. Installed a new NVidia 9500 Graphics card, and still crashing. Someone suggested the problem might be fonts - I did install some, will try uninstalling - but don't know what's original and don't want to re-install the operating system yet again.

Photoshop CS3 & Dreamweaver CS3 Work On X64 SP1?

Photoshop CS3 And X64 Service Pack 1

Apr 7, 2008

I have recently installed SP1 to my Vista X64 machine (dual core 6700 o/c to 3ghz, 8 gb ram, raptor 10K 74gb system harddrive, raptor 10K 150gb large file and partitioned PS scratch disk, 340 gb 'everthing else' harddrive, nvidia 8800 640mb gts videocard, wacom A3 wide table) and I have noticed really strange behaviour in PS CS3. It generally feels slower and when I work on larger files (183x120cm @300dpi) it's much slower than pre-sp1 on the same file size.

The odd thing I have noticed is that it crashes (fades to white - not responding ) when I use the transform scale tool and when I add a Layer blending effect ( drop shadow / gradient etc ) it never did this before as it used to render it instantly.....now it takes a least 30 sec to 1 min to create and/or recover from the 'not responding' white out screen. Has anyone else found this with PS CS3 and Vista SP1? - It's very annoying especially as I had the system perfect before the SP1 upgrade. How can I fix this?

Photoshop CS3 Has Stopped Working

Apr 28, 2008

So I finally get my new computer in, which is running on my new 64-bit Vista. I install my favorite program, Photoshop CS3, and decide to try it out a bit. It works just fine. Then I decide to install my tablet which comes included with all my photoshop plug-ins. This is where everything gets awesome. As I'm starting back up Photoshop I get hit with this.

If you notice, it freezes right as the plug-ins are being put in. I found out that the life-ruining box invading my startup is called DEP. So I tried to disable it going through the command prompt. Everything happened the way it was supposed to happen. I got some sort of success message, and when I checked the DEP status it said that it was disabled. So I try to start up photoshop again. Still, it pops up. I restart my computer after disabling it again. Still, it pops up. If I'm about to hear that I can't use Photoshop with plug-ins because of this 64-bit crap, I'll send my computer back right now. Is there anything I can possibly do to get this to work?

Impossible To Work On Photoshop?

Feb 9, 2009

- With the Aero theme selected, somme Aero effects are disturbing to work on photoshop. Moving layers is slowered (like the windows of the explorer), it's not much but disturbing for work.

- If I select the Vista Basic theme I don't have this slowing layers issue but I then have a real big LAG/delay problem when painting with the brush on photoshop (this time : impossible to work). I read about this issue on this forum: Photoshop Brush Lag Studdering with Vista But didn't find further solution.

- So logically I tried to select the Aero Theme and deactivate some of the bothering Aero options (Enable deskstop composition/animate windows). But when I do so Vista in fact automatically select the Vista Basic Theme, so I have the lag problem with brush again. Out of solutions, I'm now thinking seriously about installing my old XP license on my new computer, but it seems a bit odd not to be able to work with protoshop properly on Vista ?

Photoshop Elements 6 Cant Boot 64 Bit.

Jul 15, 2009

I have a new computer with Vista Home Premium 64. I installed the software I had been using on my old XP machine, and discovered difficulty with booting up Vista. I found I had to power off and re-power two or three times before it would even get far enough to do a start-up repair. Sometimes even this was not enough to get it to boot up, and I had to switch off and power up again, doing a second start-up repair. Having done the repair, it would then boot up fine, and work normally until shut-down. Next time it was switched on, the same trouble would occur again. So I restored it to factory settings, then reinstalled all the software, only to find the identical problem. I restored to factory settings again, and installed my various bits of software, item by item, shutting down the computer and then powering up again after each install.........

Adobe Is Not Working On A 64 Bit Version Of Photoshop For The Mac OS

Apr 4, 2008

Vista shows that those who run Microsoft are stuck in the Windows 9x mentality of endless upgrade cycles. They failed to grasp that during the adaption of XP, and as a result of the actually quite good quality of XP, computers became a part of everyday personal and business life. The arbitrary changes to the Mac platform have come home to roost: Adobe is not working on a 64 bit version of Photoshop for the Mac OS because of uncertainty about the platform. And Photoshop, if you are a moron about the realities of color management like most Mac users-is the only dubious excuse for the Mac platform to exist.

When Vista came out most people were satisfied with their XP software, boxes and peripherals. Users do not switch stable staples without good reason. Unless they are Mac users. There is no rational, in the sense that Economists define rational, reason for the vast majority of the XP installed base to switch to Vista. There are overarching reasons not to switch to Vista..........

Data Execution Prevention And Photoshop Plug-in

May 20, 2008

I need to install a FM Patcher program so some of my older plug-in will work in Photo Shop and PSP.

When I installed the patcher I get this error message that I have attached.FM Patcher is a small application that lets you change Photoshop .8bf plugins that were created with older versions of FilterMeister in order to make them work under Windows Vista. Normally developers just need to recompile their plugins with the latest FilterMeister release to make them Vista-compatible, but unfortunately some developers abandoned their plugins. So we decided to create FM Patcher to enable users of these old plugins to make them work under Vista.

At the moment Fm Patcher does not fix the problem that old FilterMeister plugins have with activated Data Execution Prevention (DEP). You still need to deactivate DEP in your control panel or place your graphics application on the DEP exclusion list.

Where is the DEP and how do I turn it off?

I have updated to the latest Signed Drivers 175.16 by nvidia, I have tried the unsigned 175.75, I have updated my bios (which were causing a memory issue before), I have updated my sound drivers which i know... creative is not the best choice but its onboard.

Vista Default Fonts Photoshop Crashes

Jun 2, 2009

I hope this is the right place to post this question.. Well, basically i installed almost 5000 fonts couple days back. But now, photoshop just crashes whenever i'm trying to add text. I suspect it's got to do with the massive amount of fonts i installed. So here's my Q.. Is there anywhere i could download Vista's default fonts? All of them.. I'm not going through the whole font folder to try and make out which ones are default and which ones are added by me. It's going to take forever to do that.. So if i'm able to download the default fonts, i'll just do a mass delete of all fonts and install the defaults.. So anybody could assist me with that....
