Outlook (Word Editor) 2003 Will Not Autofill Names

Nov 26, 2013

I installed 2003 outlook and word (outlook editor) on my brand new Win 8.1 netbook and when typing the "TO" and "CC" lines the names show up but when pressing enter they will not be accepted. I have to enter the first couple of letters of the names and then press the "check names" icon and go through the list even though the one I wanted was the one that showed up on the auto fill line singularly.

I know the auto fill does not go to the outlook contact book but rather remembers the names as they are "sent".

I have used outlook for years on both Win XP and Win 7 (various 32+64, Pro, Ultimate) and now with Win 8 it will NOT work the same way. My brother has the identical netbook and is running Outlook 2007 and it performs the same way - will not allow enter to complete the autofill. Whatsup over there at MS?

Browsers/Mail :: Win 8 Update - Outlook 2003 Won't Autofill Address

Dec 28, 2013

Since last Win 8 update Outlook 2003 no longer autofills the address. I erased the nst file and started a new nst file with each new email sent but it still will not autofill address. I also reinstalled Outlook 2003 and still no joy. Outlook also locks up for a few moments when I enter the first letter and try to autofill.

Browsers/Mail :: Outlook 2003 Won't Put Addresses Automatically?

Jan 2, 2014

I'm setting up my backup system as my main system is down for warranty repair on the motherboard.

I had Outlook 2003 setup on the main system in both Win 7 64 bit and Win 8.1 64 bit. I know Office 2003 is not supposed to be compatible with Win 8, but it works OK.

On the main system in Outlook 2003 when composing a new message, if I typed the first letter of an e-mail address in the "To" (or others) a drop down menu of e-mail addresses will appear and I could highlight the one I wanted and press enter and it would be entered on the address line. With the new install on this backup Win 8.1 system, when I highlight an e-mail address and press enter, all it does is enter the first letter and add a second line to the address line - see attached screen shot. I can't find where to enable this option (if it is an option).

Browsers/Mail :: 8.1 - How To Delete Autofill Email Addresses

Jan 10, 2014

New to 8.1 and have been searching for an answer to no avail.

How do I delete the autofill email addresses when I compose a new email?

Many of the emails that show up will never be sent to again. One has even taken a person' name from an email and assessed it to anything sent from PayPal. How that happened.

Incredibly frustrated with the lack of options/customization . . . the entire idea of "apps" on a laptop. bah!

By the way, I do not utilize the "people" app so I do not have any contacts stored there to delete - already checked to see if emails could be found there. I tried regedit.exe to find the emails I wanted to delete, also to no avail.

Browsers/Mail :: Outlook 2013 Import Contacts From Outlook 2007?

Jan 23, 2014

I am so confused about where outlook 2013 keeps things.

I have installed Outlook 2013 and would like to import my contacts from my outlook 2007 in another computer. I have already prepared the contacts.pst file from outlook 2007 and made it available in my public folders. I then imported the .pst file into Outlook 2013 via network. However the contacts shows up as a separate contact list rather than integrated into the outlook 2013 address book . How to correct it?

I must have got the process wrong.

Virtualization :: How To Add Virtual Network Editor To VMWare Player

Mar 21, 2012

This enhancement applies to VMware Player standalone. If you have VMware Workstation installed, you don't need to apply this as Workstation includes all the features (and also includes VMware Player).

As the most VMware Workstation users know, there is a virtual network editor available that lets you configure the virtual networks, add new networks and delete networks for the virtual machines and also bridged networks with the host computer.


One of the usage of the network editor is fixing the bridged network connection: How to fix bridged networking in VMware player - YouTube

The editor is useful (mostly for advanced users...but you'll never now when it might be needed) to add, delete and configure the default virtual networks that come pre-installed with Player.

VMware Player is Workstation's little brother, it's free and comes with less features. There is no Network editor with VMware Player (...or is it?)

The network editor is available in the VMware Player installer but it's default set NOT to install with the rest of the features (don't know why).

It seems different fixes need to be applied to each of Player's version 4, 5 or 6.

If using version 4 of the Player, this also applies to version 3.

I'm gonna show you how to add the network editor to VMware Player.

It's easy, or it should have been... but each version has its surprise.

Keep in mind that techniques used for one version apply for newer versions too but the files need to be extracted form other installers and other archives or additional files may be required.

Player version 3 and 4 To begin we first need to extract the VMware Player installer with some extra parameters (name-of-installer.exe /e .extract). You put the installer in a folder of your choice and create a shortcut of it as shown below (1) with the extra parameters in the target:

Then you run the shortcut that creates a folder (extract) containing all the components.

Go to folder "extract". We are interested in "network.cab": open or extract it and there you see "vmnetcfg.exe". It's the network editor.

Copy or move it in the VMware Player installation folder ("Program Files (x86)VMwareVMware Player" should be the default path).

This is shown below:

Now we are ready. The network editor is part of VMware Player just like in Workstation.

The virtual networks that appear in the notification area in Windows Vista and later can be configured or deleted:

Don't delete them if you use networking in your virtual machines. The network editor works as seen in last screenshot.

Player version 5 The fix above doesn't work in VMware Player 5: the file we need is included with Workstation. (using "/e extract" parameter for the installer still applies). Read here: VMware Communities: Whither VMware Player 5.0 VMNetCfg.exe?

Extra update: Vertigo here later on the thread: How to add the "Virtual Network Editor" to VMware Player some extra info is provided how to simplify things out: VMware Player 5 already has a vmnetui.dll included and the whole procedure posted above is not needed anymore!

Player version 6

Then, See post here. Until a command is discovered to see if Player includes the network editor again, the extraction technique of vmnetcfg.exe still is considered as 'the' fix.

Office 2003 Won't Activate - Cannot Find Internet Connection

Jan 7, 2014

The installation went easily and everything is set up but the Activation Wizard says it can't find an internet connection (which is nuts because I have Hughes Gen4 and have no issues with it, both wireless or wired).....and there is no phone number in the US to activate it anymore. Now what?

This is a full legal version and has already been updated by Windows Update so there are no issues with the product itself either.

Server 2003 - How To Register DNS With Existing Domain Controller

Mar 7, 2014

I am running into a problem with newly upgraded windows 8 computers not being able to register DNS with our existing domain controller that is currently on server 2003.

I am getting the following error: The system failed to register host (A or AAAA) resource records (RRs) for network adapter with settings:

Adapter Name : {0D2F7524-B997-4850-BE6E-50B502FE46A8}
Host Name : ########
Primary Domain Suffix : #####.#######.com
DNS server list :,
Sent update to server : <?>
IP Address(es) :

The reason the system could not register these RRs was because of a security related problem. The cause of this could be (a) your computer does not have permissions to register and update the specific DNS domain name set for this adapter, or (b) there might have been a problem negotiating valid credentials with the DNS server during the processing of the update request.

You can manually retry DNS registration of the network adapter and its settings by typing 'ipconfig /registerdns' at the command prompt. If problems still persist, contact your DNS server or network systems administrator. See event details for specific error code information.

I blanked out the computer name and domain name.

Network / Sharing :: Windows 8.1 / Microsoft 2003 Server And Folder Redirection

May 2, 2014

Sys: Windows 8.1 Pro clients attached to MS 2003 server domain. (yes I know its best to have a higher win server version with 8.1, but i do not have that currently)

Ok, so the problem is that roaming profiles and folder redirection work but on only SOME of the windows 8.1 clients!!!!

How can these both work fine on only SOME of my essentially identical workstations?

I realize that I need different Profile types for the different OS's. I have applied the V4 registry edit and created a V4 default profile in my sysvol directory on the DC so that the workstations get a proper V4 starting profile.

All PC's are in same OU container.

My GPO's for roaming profiles and folder redirection have not changed from my XP workstations, Windows server 2003 domain controller.

So I create a new user, and log into one of the Windows 8.1 client machines on my local lan. Wow, profile works, V4 created in the profile share, redirection works perfectly. So I log out. I then remote to an identical PC across my wan. Log in as same user and it works fine, get the redirected desktop, and profile. But now the fun begins. I log out to complete the profile "swap" back to the server. I try to log back in and the disaster starts. (Yes, I have triple checked my permissions on all shares etc.)

I get the "DESKTOP cannot be loaded error". Logs show REDIRECTION SUCCESSFUL for my desktop!!! What the?

I have received the "redirection gpo not applied till next login" log, but it is intermittent. Its like the OS does does not know it nose from its butt! How can my desktop be redirected successfully and I get a message that my DESKTOP IS NOT AVAILABLE?

So I go back to my local lan machine and try logging in as this same user, IT WORKS FINE OVER AND OVER AGAIN!

How I can get my roaming profiles and folder redirection to work normally with my Windows 8.1 clients on my MS 2003 domain server?

Changing Folder Names In Win 8 Explorer?

May 4, 2013

In Windows 8 Explorer ( have they changed the name of it ) you know, the file manager. In the left side, the top of the "tree" you have Desktop, Downloads, etc ....

I created a folder when the pc was new called Jack's Stuff. Later, much later, I decided I didn't like the name with "stuff" ... so I changed it to Jack's Place. Instead of the typical My(fill in the blank). So it changed there. But following through the tree to it's origin down finding it through USERS>Jack ... etc. It's still in all cases called Jack's Stuff. Now this is not typical for XP and before that. I jumped right from XP to Windows 8.

Why didn't the name change everywhere and not just at the top of the tree? Is there a way to insure the name changes everywhere if you rename a folder. Oh, I tried going through USERS>Jack and changing it but I forget right now but it didn't work out completely kosher.

File Names Changed By Windows 8.1?

May 12, 2014

Win 8.1 has added a piece in brackets to files on my new PC. Now none of my slide shows work because each jpg has this bracketed info in the file name. I have tried overwriting the files with originals from a backup but these too are changed. Can I stop this happening? Is there a bit of code to delete the bracketed part of the many thousands of files affected?

I have loads of Nero nvc files that I can no longer open because of this name change.

Apps / Software :: Embedded JPG Links In Excel 2003 Insist On Opening IE11?

In Win 8.1 they will ONLY open in IE11.

I have changed the registry as directed by MS in this article to no avail.

How To Display Extended Icon Names In Taskbar

May 11, 2014

When two or more documents of a program (microsoft word, for example) are used then the word icons are grouped in the task bar. When the mouse pointer is put over the word icon then a little window appears with the document names. This is useful but sometimes is not fast enough.

Is there possible to display the word document title names as extended icon names. Then it wouldn't be necessary to put the mouse pointer over the icons to choose the desired word document because the document names would be displayed in a task bar like two separated icons.

Is there any easy way of doing this without having to change each file name individually.

The Sandisk probably was the first pen drive I plugged into the machine when new but surely it should be picking up details of subsequent devices or at the very least showing generic details.
