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?
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.
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?”
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.
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)...
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
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:
So I figured that I'd delete the whole folder........or not:
I'll keep at it.Yes, it seems strange to me.I have the same mail program on my PC except the OS is XP and nothing like this is happening. I tried answering using "Reply", but both time I got an error message "unable to deliver, email address is invalid.
For many years I have been using a batch file to back up files later than a specific date to a temporary directory. I then copy them to an external hard drive. My new computer has Vista business. I am unable to get the batch file to work. Would someone please help?

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.
Computer is just a year old, came with Works installed. For some unknown reason the problem began: could not open document files with Works. This worked in the past, but suddenly I could not open these files.
I have a persistant re occuring problem over the past couple of weeks.
Every few days i try to open various emails via the paperclip with attchments such as .jpg files and the window opens up " Windows cannot find"xxxxxxxx.jpg". Kake sure you have typed the name correctly and then try again."
I can only open them if i save the attachment this happens to all emails in my inbox.
I have cured this in the past by doing a system restore going back a couple of days and things are good for 2 or 3 days then the same thing happens.
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.
I am unable to post bmp files to my C:Windows folder. "You don't have permission to save in this location. Contact the administrator to obtain permission." (Bummer -- I am the computer administrator and this computer's sole user.)
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.
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.........
5 days ago I posted a problem about not being able to download exe files and not being able to install programs from CD's. The problem had been addressed a couple of years ago and none of those solutions worked, along with no recent listings of the problem. What did I do wrong on my post that I had no comments, suggestions or assistance offered at all?
When I transferred files from my win98 and winXP machine to my new HP Vista x64, I have a folder that contains photo parades. The file extensions end with PhP or 4PP. I have been unable to view these. Seems like there isn't an application on the new machine that will open the files in photo parade format.
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.
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.
I just bought a new computer that has Vista Home Preium x64 on it and have loaded photoshop 7.0 on it twice but many of the components on photoshop 7.0 won't work. I use this for everything and am a website designer. Can anyone tell me WHAT CAN I DO to resolve these issues and get it to work right on my new computer?
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.
I installed photoshop cs3 on xp last month on my drive D: then i installed windows vista home basic on my pc. Now i need to get rid of Adobe Photoshop CS3 but i cant see any unsinstaller in the folder or in control panel. Is there a method for manually (safely) unistall programs on vista?
Just got my new comp with Vista X64 with SP1. Still doing so much time searching on all the software I install.. I plan to install Photoshop CS3 and Dreamweaver CS3, however I'm not sure if it's compatible and fully function, error-free on a Vista X64 OS. I understand you are able to run 32bit Apps, but just need a confirmation before I go ahead.
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?
I might be in the wrong place , but, I tried to install filters for my photoshop x64 but they go into x86 directory and do not show in the filter lists. I deleted adobe from the x86 dir but its still the same the filters do not show. These filters worked fine when they were used when my machine was x86. I there a cure?
