Possible To Save Language Pack By Tracking Its Download From WU?
Aug 30, 2013
When I add new language interface and Windows 8.0 (and 8.1) starts to download the languagepack from WU, is there any option to track this download and find the storage location of this MSI/CAB/MSU ...?
If so, where is it stored? Is it deleted right after extraction?
The until now decent list of apps that are crashing is slowly growing up so I wanted to sniff the culprit and remove it.
In all previous cases the problem was non obstructive but today I wanted to update Daemon Tools which caused an unrecoverable error in the uninstaller therefore I can't update which I already consider limiting.
All crashing apps invoke the same dialog Program XYZ stopped to work (lookup online solution/Terminate program/Debug program). So I suppose there's some latent problem with my OS and all the situations have the same common divisor. Now I would need some clues how to track it.
So I was using my computer the other day and suddenly my clickpad started tracking very poorly. Before it used to be accurate when it was tracking my finger, however now it jumps around the screen when I move my finger around on it and it takes a full second before the clickpad translates initial input to the mouse. If I put my finger on the trackpad and start moving it the mouse will jump to the location where the pointer should be and will not show the track that the pointer took. I uninstalled the driver and reinstalled it and I am having the same problem. I have restarted the system multiple times and it has still not resolved the issue. I cannot click on anything due to the insane inaccuracy of the trackpad.
When I upgraded to Win 8 I first got the media pack product key so when I was going through the process I entered the key and got the Media pack during the download.
I have sent a request via the appropriate route for the pack to be sent to my address for my laptop; I know there is one key per pc.
It said it would take up to 72 hours but I have not received it. I called but some person who I could not understand well gave me a site which was the same I initially tried. This time it said it could not be executed.
Perhaps it was because of the address being the same but I am not sure. Is MS closing out this offer? Once you get the "free" pack does it expire in 3 months?
I downloaded the Swedish language pack on my Windows 8.1. But previously it was Italian. So when i downloaded it was 90% swedish the general things like desktop, control panel..... and 10% was italian (i think it is only the start menu on windows 8 and some folders). What should I do???
I've had my laptop for about a month now and when I first got it I did something (and I don't remember what at the moment) that said I needed to add the media center pack. Anyway, whatever I did said I needed to get a license key for the media pack. Well, Microsoft just emailed me my key today but I don't really know what to do with it. How do I go about installing the media pack so I can enter the key?
On Windows 8.1 I installed 8Gadgetpack to bring back the Windows 7 sidebar, and for the most part it works great except for one thing, when I click show desktop (or press win+D) it hides the gadgets as well. Is there a way to prevent this without having to press win+G all the time after showing desktop?
I've decided to go ahead and reinstall w8pro given my extensive messing around with it has finally caused some quirky, unexpected results - it's a relatively new installation, so it shouldn't be too much of a hassle, didn't get a chance to install a lot of third party programs and such. The thing is, I did purchase and install the Windows 8 media center pack - how do i go about getting this back? do i have to contact ms? I'm fairly certain that i don't have an activation number for the pack, if i recall i just paid for it online and then was allowed to download it and install it.
Also, i thought i would go ahead and do a clean install all over again as opposed to a reset or refresh given i want to make certain that i'm starting from scratch again... or do you think a reset or refresh might be the better option (i'm not concerned about keeping any personal settings or files intact).
How to add new keyboard input language ? I have one language, but i want to add english language. I go to control panel, language, add a language, then i select english, and then just blank window appears... :
Or i go to language, then select for current language options, add an input method, and then explorer just crashes and restarts ... :
There is setting in windows 8 "Use desktop language bar when it's available" it makes language bar like it was in windows 7. But it doesn't seem to work correctly it doesn't appear when windows starts it only appears if you change language with keyboard short cut (for example shift+alt or shift+ctrl you can change that in settings).
I have set 3 input languages so it should be there and I need to use it.. windows default language preference select menu works but language bar doesn't.
i was able to get as far as having the px load from camera to computer & somehow all px got installed into the computer but only temporarily ! While camera was still attached to tower, I clicked on Control Panel/Computer/then the list of programs in computer and then i saw the name of the camera (cannon Power Shot) ...then Cannon 100, clicked on that and then saw all px - was able to individually email some to myself but when i detached cable from tower to camera and went back to ''Computer'' found Cannon 100 but no px were there -so obviously i wasn't able to save them.....but strangely enough 3 of the downloaded px were in the ''DCIM' folder (whatever that term means)...but i don't know how those 3 got there ! So i got far enough to download & 'view' but don't know how to ''save'' the px in the computer for future viewing without the necessity of attaching the camera....besides i'd like to delete some px from the camera once saved into the computer.....I'm so used to XP
The name of the apps in the metro are in different language than English so how can I change the language? and also when I click right click on the desktop I see the options in English in addition to another language so how can I change it to be all in English?
First off, when I type in Korean and Japanese using the appropriate Korean/Japanese IMEs, the language bar is autoset to Half_width alphanumeric. I want to remove all options except for Hiragana and Full-Width Katakana and set it so that when I change my language to Japanese it automatically sets to Hiragana. Similarly with Korean how do I remove the alphanumeric and leave only the korean language option? Secondly, is there a button is can use to fluidly tag between language options within an language? So for instance, if I'm in Japanese is there a combination of buttons to press such that I can change between Hiragana and Full-Width Katakana?
I have a Sony VAIO VPCSE and I have installed Windows 8 Professional. My region, language, input methods etc are set to English(Ireland)
The Problem When I turn on my laptop, there is the word "ENG" beside my clock and my input language is set to English (United States). When I click ENG; I am giving the option to switch between English(Ireland) and English (United States).
When I go to language preferences, the English (United States) language does not show as being one of my preferences
However, when I add the language and then press "Remove", the ENG beside the clock disappears
I don't mind what it is; editing the registry, deleting the English(United States) language.
my default language setting (keyboard layout) is Swedish.For some reason Windows 8.1 changes this setting to English.
I have tried to install and then uninstall the English keyboard layout (so that Swedish is the only one available) but Windows doesn't care if the layout is actually installed or not. Here is a screenshot:
Windows changes this setting on a whim, it seems to happen the most when starting up the computer. I had this problem with Windows 8 as well.
my Keyboard language input keeps changing from English (UK) to English (US)... pretty much all of my passwords have an @ sign in them so you can imaging how annoying this is lol.
This seems heavily related to my mouse - SteelSeries - World of Warcraft : Cataclysm? MMO Gaming Mouse / the control panel for that mouse as it only started happening after installing this mouse (both home and work pc).
I have tried to add English (US) >> Set it as Primary >> Then remove English (US).
Doing this removes the English (US) keyboard completely which is what I want/expect but then it comes back again after a short while?
Is it possible to change the English (US) keys to match that of the English (UK) so even if it does change to English (US) it wouldn't be a problem anyway?
Using Windows 8.1. I have English and Japanese input languages added, and both are listed as options in the language toolbar, but it is impossible to select anything but English. Windows+Space allows me to navigate to Japanese, but releasing the keys or pressing Enter does nothing. The Left Alt+Shift shortcut also does nothing.
I'm into photography and when I take pictures and put them on my computer they usually have the same name as several other pictures I've taken. In Windows 7 when I would transfer files from my memory card to my computer it would give me the option to 1) Skip saving the duplicate files, 2) save over them, and 3) keep both files and then it would rename the new file with a number after it (such as DCIM 102 and DCIM 102 (2))
In Windows 8 it seems like I only have the options to 1) skip saving the duplicate and 2) save over the duplicate....since I want to keep both files, what do I do?
Most of my pictures aren't really themed or anything, so there's not really a need for keywords, like "Birthday blah blah" or "flowers yada yada" etc. Anything similar to the "save both files"...?
In the past whenever I would press my Win-key and PrtScr-key, it would make a copy of my desktop and automatically save it to a folder. I'm not trying to copy it to the clipboard, Win has a feature that will allow you to make a copy of the sreenshot and save it to a particular folder called Screenshot.
Anyway, I just recently upgraded from Win 8.1 to Win 8.1 Pro w/Med Ctr. After which this has stopped working. I use this feature a lot.
Not sure if my image insert worked, but here's what I'm trying to get to work again. I am aware I can use the Sniping Tool, but it does not work the same.
I am using time freeze program and at same time I am using an free vpn service which pasword changes per week. The time free program has an option to keep some folder and files non freez while freezing active. For instance while freezing active user can select desktop to not be frozen by this way after restart pc will not delete changes done on desktop. My main problem is that after a week later I have to defreez the pc type the pasword and refreez the pc. If I know where the pasword of vpn kept I will able to overcome on this problem.
There is a location with path %userprofile%AppDataRoamingMicrosoftNetworkCo nnectionsPbk that contain vpn configurations except user name and password. I need the location that store user name and password.
