If you're willing to look at the text above, you'll find that this "PATH" is totally different with the one we set in Environment Variables dialog or get from the CMD.
I want to use some executable files in "d:commonin" with my web application hosted by IIS8, but I found that the web application could not find the executable files in "d:commonin", which should exist in "PATH"
Well, though I can just put the executable files into system32,
I am running windows 8 professional on my home PC and running windows 8 home on my Venue 8 Pro. I downloaded the remote desktop app on my Venue and setup a connection to my home PC. It was very easy and worked (at least on my home network) Now the first time I tried to access the computer outside my home it says that it can't find the PC. Is the connection only good with me being on the home network? Do I have to install some third party VPN to access it?
I have downloaded some applications, and it won't allow me to delete them (it keeps saying the file is open in that application--I checked task manager, and there's nothing there). I read that a program called Unlocker can work, but when I try to run the setup, nothing happens. This is happening for all applications in my Download folder.
On my old Win 7 and Win Vista and Win XP laptops I've had no problems opening and viewing my old MPEG-2 video files. My new laptop running Win 8.1 will not allow me to view them.
Windows Media Player will only recognize them as audio files - not video - though the sound will play. Real Player is the same - the application will open and begin playing a file but only as audio file. I've tried the built in Toshiba media player and it shows errors and won't open the files at all.
Again - these are conforming MPEG-2 NTSC 760X480 video file (old analog home movies) captured using an ATI video card dongle to connect to my video source and an old version of capture application ULead Video Studio. These files conform in every way to MPEG-2 standard/format and will run on all of our PC EXCEPT the new one running Win 8.
I bought and loaded a video editing application from Corel and it will open and play these files perfectly so why won't Win Media Player and Real Player recognize them when running behind Windows 8?
I have accidently set my .ext default program to Notepad and I want to change it back to an unknown application I have tried deleting it in regedit and it just sets it back to notepad even when I restart my computer afterwards
dad upgraded from windows 7 to 8 a few months ago and selected to keep his old files (i.e. pictures, vids, so on) now we cant find his old files. I have gone to the windows.old file and there are files there but they all say that they are empty. everything else seems to be fine but we cant find all of his vacation pictures or other media that he really was not wanting to lose.
I have been using a PC for over ten years and, at best, I am still a novice! I am experiencing a lot of issues I had overcome with Win7. I will address thes one at a time. In the past when I was looking for a folder or file I pressed START and keyed in what I was looking, a name or unique words. How do I do that using Windows 8.1?
I recently purchased a new laptop (Windows 8), we put the hard disk from my old slow laptop (win XP) that stopped working into a "sata enclosure". When I attached it, I cant find my personal files. Its like the space is taken up but my important files cant be seen!! All that comes up on the hard disk enclosure drive (F is: recovery, swwork, windows, and preboot folders... and a recov.wim file. I even ran "Search" but still cant find my documents or anything...
I'm trying to download some DLLs to use for my Paint Shop Pro program and I need to put them in my System 32 files, and I can't find System 32. I new at working with this Win 8. I received the 2 dlls in a zip folder. I opened them and saved in a folder in Documents. I tried to right click on extracted file to find the System 32 files that way, not there. I went to extract and tried to extract to, and tried to browse to System 32, but I just could not find the System 32. I saw Programs and Programs (68) but no System 32 .
I have a lot of files who are stored into folders (~ 2-3K worth of folders with 2-20 files in each folder) and I need to search in each one to see if there are any files that are similar in name. None will be exactly the same so I need to only compare the first 10 characters and if there are 2 files that have the same characters, then I need to have them displayed so I can decide if I should delete one. The problem with commercial duplicate detectors is they match the entire name or the CRC of a file which in this case will be different.
I figured out how to search but Windows 8.1 stopped searching for files. I type a word in the window and nothing happens after I hit enter.
I searched the web and suggestions say to use the charms menu but I haven't figured out how to search a thumb drive with the charms menu search.
When I insert a thumbdrive, the window opens and I type in the Search Toshiba (G) box and hit enter and nothing comes up and Windows can't find its own files on a thumb drive but it works on the C drive.
I keep turning on another computer with Windows XP to do searches or I use Windows 7 and I can get around a little.
The screen shots on the internet doesn't seem to work or relate with my system.
My "c" drive is starting to get full mostly because of a very large music collection. My friend said"simple,just put everything on "d". I think I should have gotten an external drive. Anyhow, now when I go to listen to a playlist song on media player, I get blue dots with an "i"in them and a message saying that the media player can't find the file. I tried changing the file location for the media player to"d"drive,but it would not let me (suggestion from same friend who said "mine works fine in "d" drive. Should I move everything back or get an external drive or is there a way to make this work. Asus Notebook a45x ,Windows 8,Media player version unknown.
My friend has 3 or 4 hard drives with personal files that she wants me to combine into one hard drive. She says there will be many duplicate files and we need to eliminate them. What would be the best way to go about doing that?
After updating to 8.1, windows search is slow, even though I disabled Bing and I don't have extra locations in the index, and it doesn't find files even though they are in subfolders of My Documents. This problem is very outstanding with Word files.
I tried deleting the Data folder, and rebuilding the index, but to no avail. I need a way to search for text within files, so the "Everything" app does not seem to be the solution. I am trying out AgentRansack right now, and it does work, but it is slow and uses up almost all the CPU when it is searching.
My computer won't download programs or run executable. I restored to the earliest point it showed, 12/7, but no luck. I turned off firewall; nothing. Chrome only runs with reduced screen resolution. What's corrupted?
I was wondering if there was a way to create a x64 setup executable in a pre-bult Win 8 AIO (containing both x32 x64). I am also aware that the maker of the AIO used x32 to increase compatibility between x64 and x32 computers.
I'm not sure how far reaching this is but I just noticed that when I select a folder and type a file name in the search bar on the right of the address bar, files are found on my backup drive, which is attached by USB to the PC, this drive is attached because it contains other partitions for file storage.
The folder in this case was on the desktop and it shows that it is on C: Drive, but files were found on the H: Drive which is where I run my backup to.
When I un-attach the H drive the files found do not respond to left or right click.
When I tried to reset my laptop, it read "could not find the files needed". mine is an Acer aspire V5, it didn't came with an installation disc or media, i know it should have a hidden partition for recovery, but i think the system is having trouble with it. i think a malware might have done this, i got malware bytes, I tried norton online scan and eset online scan, but did not detect any. before this, i experienced my firefox browser icon on the taskbar progressing a download but cant see anything on downloads tab, i closed firefox several times, but it continued everytime i opened firefox, and it did finished its download.
Later i noticed explorer.exe is always having an established connection in TCPview, without me opening any apps. so i thought i really need to reset the computer, but this is my problem. I've already run Dism /Online /Cleanup-Image /RestoreHealth restore health on command prompt, but it showed no integrity violation.
Windows8 navigation. Can not find familiar file directory to access files, instead apps and app store! Could some one direct me how I can turn off start screen and go back old fashion ways. Else I will have to go back to my Vista.
I fire up my laptop last night and install the patch Tuesday fixes. Afterwards I go to start Outlook 13; I click the tile and nothing happens. I say heck with it for the night, I still have Outlook 10 installed so I start that to get through the night. This morning I root around to see what is going on. I take a look in the program files directory and see that outlook.exe (along with a ton of other executable and dll's) have been renamed to outlook.exe.bak.
If you wonder why I have both 10 and 13 installed, that is how the '13 install left it. I purchased 10 late in its life and got the free upgrade to 13. When I installed 13 it left 10 out there.
I've got a new Windows 8.1 laptop, and I've been installing the usual suspects. Most of these work, but I have had trouble with two:
With both of these, upon running I don't even get the warning asking whether I want to allow the file to modify my computer. All that happens is that the cursor flicks to the "waiting" blue circle for a second or two, then... nothing.
I like to use the desktop on my laptop rather than the tiles. I had no problem putting the browser on the desktop, but am a loss for putting the mail program there; there doesn't seem to be an executable file in the mail directory.
I'v been trying to get my new USB sound card (Roland Duo Capture EX) working with Pro-Tools 10, but when I choose the Roland as the playback engine on starting up ProTools, I get an error stating that it is in use by aother application.
Also, when I change the sample rate in the "Sound" window for that sound card, I get the following: "The Device is being used by another application"...
Is there some way in Windows 8 to check what applications are hogging the card?
Recently I installed latest Windows 8.1 update (Update 1/Spring update), and later latest Beta Nvidia driver. After that, an strange problem showed up. I recorded a video which represents it (look at the thumbnail 'hiding' under the previewed application ).
I'm using UxStyle and this theme: Windows 8.1 White Titlebar Dark theme by x0lis on deviantART . I tried:
Uninstalling UxStyle and themeInstalling 'normal' Nvidia driverDoing sfc /scannow but it didn't find anything particular (something about prncacla.inf, but I don't think that this causes this problem)Scanning system with antivirus (KIS 2014)Turning off and on option 'Enable preview' in Advanced setting -> PerformanceChanging theme to otherSearching about this in Google and this forum, but I didn't find anything similar but nothing worked.
Well I didn't tried uninstalling Update 1, but I would like to avoid that.
I doubleclicked on an MP4 to play it (from Explorer) and this XBox Video thing came up and played it. Fine, looks like a nice player. But when I stopped it wanted to exit the application -- can't find a way.
Oh, I can switch to ANOTHER application, but how the heck do I close this thing down? I could bring up Task Manager and kill it there (I suppose -- haven't even seen if there is still Task Manager, although I assume they would not have gotten rid of that) but there MUST be a simple way to close out an app, right?
(If not I'm going to remove that app and make sure I never accidentally bring it up again).
