Solved: anyone know how to make this form work??

Question: Solved: anyone know how to make this form work??

ok this probs kinda hard to explain in words but ill try my best...

basically im creating a database (in access 2000) for a friend who runs a small truck company. he needs a form which allows him to enter repair data.

i currently have these tables in my database:

Repair table

Repairline table

Parts table

Customer Table

Customertruck table
Registration he wants a form that allows him to enter the date at the top of the form, then select the customer, then select which of the customers trucks the work is being done on, then be able to enter the parts used.

i know (at least i think i know) that this isnt really difficult, and i most likely need to create queries and build the form from these ( as a form with subform) but i cant get it to work,
anyone got any idea? sorry if it didnt make much sense i could e-mail anyone the database if they think they need a better look, thanks in advance

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

Answer: Solved: anyone know how to make this form work??

I would make the customer in the Repair table a selection, and the Part Id in the Repairline table a selection, just to get that part out of the way. I would then set up a Repairline query of the 2nd and 3rd tables you list, and then make a Repair query of the Repair table and the Repairline query.
Then make a Customer query of the last 2 tables, and finally a full query Customers and Repairs of the Customer query and the Repair query. Omit duplictes - you don't want Customer ID in multiple places in the query (it isn't necessary to do this - just helps avoid confusion and getting names like tblCustomer.CustomerID).
Then base your form on the Customers and Repairs query.
If you need a hand, email me via my profile and I will get back to you.

thanks for taking a look at this thread, any help will be greatly appreciated by a complete Noob.

I've been given a LOT of help by members of this Forum (especially OBP) with a DB I'm making as a first look at any type of IT product, and I'm very grateful, so thank you all.

Recently, I was advised to take a look at the "Tabbed" style of "MainForm" instead of the "Switchboard" style I originally used. I must say, I really like the tabbed style much more than the switchboard but I've hit one hurdle that I can't seem to overcome.

In the Switchboard style, I was able to set a form to load in either DATA ENTRY = YES or DATA ENTRY = NO mode depending on which sub-switchboard the user selected. For example, I had a ENTER NEW sub-switchboard that all forms would open in DATA ENTRY = YES mode & I had another EDIT EXISTING sub-switchboard that all forms would open in DATA ENTRY = NO mode.

However, with the new tabbed style, I cannot set the form load type for separate tabbs, it will only accept the LAST type as the GLOBAL type. Example, on the ENTER NEW tab, I set the form to load as DATA ENTRY = YES & sets the form to open in DATA ENTRY = YES on both tabs, then I go to the EDIT EXISTING tab & set the same form to DATA ENTRY = NO & it sets the form to open in both tabs in DATA ENTRY = NO mode.

So, my question is:
Can I set the same form to load differently on different tabs on the same MainForm?
If so, w... Read more

Answer:Solved: MS Access - Tabbed MainForm - How to make a form open a form in multiple mode

I would just copy the Subform, so you have version 1 for data entry with the Data Entry set to "Yes" and version 2 set to "No".
The only thing you need to do then is to Requery the Editing form each time you make an entry in the data entry form.
Although I prefer to just have an Edit form with a "New Record" button for the data entry.

I have a difficult one that is hard to explain but here goes.

When a new record is being created in "frmProjects" I want that upon closing the form it will require the person via pop up warning? to add a comment which is a button on the same form that opens "frmRemarks" other wise the record will not save.

Or it could upon attempting to close the frmProjects it could pop up the frmRemarks with a message box saying "Comment is required when creating new record" ???

I should also note that frmProjects pulls fromtblProjects and that comments come from tblRemarks which is a subdata table of tblProjects
Any ideas? Please note that I am a novice at VBA and pretty much need things spelled out in detail, but I don't give up!

Thanks, Joe


Answer:Solved: Make requirement in form

Joe, why use a pop-up form, won't a subform perform the same function?
Otherwise you need to manually relate the "Comment" to the Record on the frmProjects

Could someone please help me do this because i am trying to make a book but i cant get MS word to be in a book form. If you know how to do this in MS Word 2000 could you please tell me.

Thanks in advance Steve

Answer:Solved: How do you make MS Word 2000 into book form???

If I understand what you actually want (and that is not guaranteed), the option you want is nothing to do with Word per se, but with the capabilities of your printer to print Page 1 on the first page, Page 2 on the reverse of the forst page etc (for spine binding).

For fold binding it gets more comples, but its more likely to be a funtion of your printer capabilities (if they exist) than Word.

For Word setup tips Google the following word string:

word book layout

That will give you more help that can be provided in pages of posts here I suspect.

Using Access 2010. Designed a form containing 3 command buttons that open either a form or report. One weeee problem: the buttons don't work/don't do anything. The VBA is there, but it doesn't execute.

DB was imported from one designed in Access 2000, and I kept the format .mdb (did not convert to .accdb because client that uses it has both Office 2003 and Office 2010 in their shop, so dB has to be readable by all). Does that have anything to do with the command buttons doing nothing?

I have a database to be used by people completely new to access. So I made the access window disappear, and add 3 buttons: add record, save record, and delete record.

But I found that when I open the database (which show only the main form), all three buttons only work once. For example when I add new record, then I save. And I cannot add another new record, I pushed the button but it doesn't respond. So I close the form (which brings back the access window) and reopen the form, and I can add another one.

Does anyone know how to fix this? Lots of thanks.

I got a pen drive as a promotional gift. It is a USB drive inside a ball point pen, size 128meg. It included a USB cable and a miniature CD. I inserted the CD and when nothing happened, I looked at the files on the CD, saw SETUP.EXE and clicked on it. The only result was a screen saying there was no need to install the driver, and apparently nothing else happened.

I connected the USB cable and the pen to a USB port (one that I have not used in the past) assuming that XP would do the usual PLONK sound and recognize it, but nothing happened and when I check on MY COMPUTER it is not shown.

Any idea how to use the drive or make XP recognize it?

It is a no-name tower with an ABIT BF6 mobo, Pent. 3 500MHZ processor. My plan is to take most of my stuff from my comp and install it on this mobo/chipset.

Thought I would try it before I did anything...failed w/insert SYS disc message...tried using a WIN98 startup disc and got to a page that said disc is not FAT32. (During boot sequence it finds the CDrom which is a master on IDE2...I tried putting the HDD on IDE2 with same results.)

Do not know what to do from here, I am not sure wether there is any info on this HDD(maybe they wiped it clean ). Should I try just putting in the HDD from my original machine in it to see if it boots?

What should/can I do with boot disc to see if there is any info on this HDD.

I do not want to put in my HDD from my working machine except as a last resort...afraid that if it works, it might find "all this new hardware" and confuse the issue.

Hey member on this site.

Last summer, I recieved a Dell Inspiron 6000 laptop for my graduation, with an internal wireless network card. I have successfully been able to connect wirelessly hundreds of times away at school, both through their network, as well as via wireless hot spots in public places.

Now that I am back home for the holidays, I wanted to hook up something at my house so I wouldn't have to share the family computer every time I wanted to go online. We have a Dell desktop that's only a few years old, running Windows XP, and we have Comcast cable internet. Our modem is a Motorola SB4200 surfboard cable modem. Never had any problems getting online on the home computer.

I first bought a Belkin G Router, but, when I tried to configure it, got an error message- something along the lines of "can't connect computer to router". Called tech support on the phone, they had me reset the thing a few times, and told me ultimately that it was defective. I returned that and got a Linksys Wireless G Broadband router, model WRT54G.

Afternoon everyone,

I'm adjusting a query-based form in a database of mine, which I use to search for contacts. I provide the user the ability to search by Company, Last Name, Contact Relation (which employee in the office is 'responsible' for the connection of a particular client) and Client Service (which department of the company does the contact serve purpose).

I've just noticed, however, that the query-based form I've used doesn't filter the data according to AND criteria, but rather OR criteria. i.e. If I select company X, I will get a list of those are associated with that company, HOWEVER, if I then choose to further the search by selecting a Contact Relation, Y, I'm given a list of all contacts who work in company X as well as those are associated with contact Y instead of those who work in company X AND who are associated with contact Y...

Am I making sense?

I'm pretty sure that most people have come across this problem, and I've already tried adjusting the query by changing the criteria within the query.

By the way, my form works by consolidating the list of companies, contacts names, relations and services in to a drop down box (using SELECT DISTINCT), which is then related to the query through the criteria (using [Form]![FormName]![ObjectName]). And then once the value is selected from the drop down list, I use an After Update event to show the results.

Your help is much appreciated. Thanks everyone!

Answer:Solved: How do you make MS Access queries work as AND instead of OR?

I found something on the Microsoft Knowledge Base (, and it seems to be working fine now, I get the "AND" criteria sorted, however, now I'm having problems on refreshing the form to start a new search.

I currently have a button called "Reset", which I intend to refresh the search and start again, however, something is happening with the code, because when I ask to refresh the table, all the information disappears.

This is the code I have:
Private Sub Reset_Click()
Me.Organisation = ""
Me.ContactRelation = ""
Me.ClientService = ""
Me.LastName = ""

OK, I decided to go with 64-bit Vista and use 4Gb of ram. Overall, after a week-long learning curve to get aquainted with the system, I like it. I have run into a strange problem though, and I see by searching that other people have been running into it, too.

Quicktime will not work on 64-bit Vista. Period! Not in Firefox, not in Chrome, not in Safari, not stand-alone, not in IE (I even tried out IE8). After installing Quicktime, every time I want to play a nothing. Sometimes, right after being positively sure that I just installed the latest version, it stares at me and it tells me to get the latest version!

Anybody out there, like me, who needs Quicktime for making movies, web browsing QT sites, downloading movies from my digital camera - you name it? Anybody have any idea how to get it to work? MS and Apple both seem to be completely ignoring the situation, pretending that it doesn't exist. What's up?

And... can we get a Forum going exclusively for 64-bit Vista so that we can have a place to help each other with this "less-than ready for prime time" operating system?

My multi item form isn't letting me add new records, only update and delete current ones.

My guess it that this is because the form is based on a multi-table query. That's fine, I can make a new form specifically for adding new records, but I'd like to be able to salvage this form if possible. Is there any way to either force this form to accept new records in the bottom row, or is there any way to get rid of the "add record" bottom row completely so it's not misleading users into thinking they can add records here?

Answer:VB form doesn't depict the changes I make

The error message you received would indicate that a control is missing on your form. It's hard to say without knowing what line the error was received on, especially since you didn't include the form code. It would also help to mention what version of VB (seems to be VB6, there are at least 3 .Net versions as well) you are using.

So right now I have a form in my database that gets published as a PDF when the save button is pressed for an entry. However when I make new entries to the form, therefore new records, and save them they also get published but all of the previous records get republished and saved under the new record's name.

Does anyone know why this is happening?

This seems like it would be a common task in Access but I can't find any reference to it.

I have a combo box with three choices, Kamazaoo, Grand Rapids, and Traverse City. The field name is location. The location is entered only once but there is no limit to the amount of records that can be added. When one record is finished Access defaults to the previous location and starts a new record.

I know how to do a make table query but can I do a make table query based on the fields value? For instance if the entry person is finished entering data for Kalamazoo a button could be pushed that would make a Kalamazoo table.

HI Guys
i really need help in making a DVD bootable disk form dell factory recovery partition, the story started when my computer got so slow and i wanted to make factory recovery to the original as the computer was when i bought it.
during the factory rest something happened and the power was interrupted, therefore the processing was not completed , i tried to do the same procedure but i did nit succeed using F8 ,, and i got always bootMGr problem.. what i did ,i installed another windows 7 professional , the computer now works , but i want to use my original software from dell, the recovery partition is still untouched and can see it... i am wondering how to make DVD bookable disk form this recovery partition as the windows running in the computer now is not as the same as the one originally installed by dell when i bought this computer...
any help highly appreciated

Answer:how to make DVD Bootable disk form factroy Recovery Partition ,

You might be able to access the recovery partition this way:

1. Start computer.
2. Immediately hold down the Ctrl key. At the same time start clicking the F11 key (top row of keyboard.) This may let the computer boot into the recovery partition.
3. If it boots into the recovery partition you should be bale to click "Restore," and then "Confirm" to restore your Dell computer. Click "Finish" when prompted to do so, and then select "Yes" to reboot.
4. You may see a different prompt to click "Next" and click "OK" to reboot depending on your specific computer model

If this doesn't work you might be able to have Dell send you recovery disks for your specific machine free of charge. This is a one time offer.

Dell - Support

If you are a country other than the United States and need to request recovery discs, you will need to contact Tech Support directly.

My database is used to complete reviews (evaluations) typically done monthly. My parent form hosts info such as the who's being evaluated, the Review ID, the reviewer's name etc.
The 5 child forms each have the same fields but capture the questions we answer during our evaluation.
Since there are about 50 questions total, it's rare that a reviewer will start and complete a review in one sitting. I have my database working now so that my 5 child forms have drop down menus to select their corresponding questions, and allow the reviewer to enter the score and comments. Everything then cascades up to the info on the parent form and all is good.
My problem is that when I close and re-open my parent form - the child records are no longer visible for that given parent record. They are saved in the correct table, however there's no way for the reviewer to know which questions have been answered and which remain. I would like all the records to be visible every time the form is opened.
I've set my Indexed field to Yes-No Duplicates, so I do get a pop up message if a duplicate is created, but it leaves the reviewer guessing what's been done and what hasn't.
How can I make the existing records visible when the form is opened?
And better yet, can I write a macro or code to automatically create the record for each of the questions I have to answer, leaving just the score and comment fields to be filled? (all other fields already auto-fill when the quest... Read more

click here for my related thread about PHP, in which I mentioned this problem. I have now been able to borrow some freespace for testing purposes click hereIt's supposed to output to an email address but the form handler simply triggers a message window from the user's email client.I know somebody is bound to say "why don't you script your own PHP" or "why not use a free form handler" but because I'm using NOF, those options would really be unworkable even if I knew how to use them, so I need to work out how I can get NOF to do what it's supposed to do.I suspect that it must be a script issue, but NOF is supposed to create the script file (a CGI I think, according to the very vague help files) but I cannot find any such file on the server. Great though NOF undoubtedly is, when you hit a snag or find its limitations, it's a pain in the backside.I really hope someone can come up with the answer to this. Thank you in advance.

Answer:Sound won't work form Speakers but works in headphones

Hi Ezom and welcome to SF!
That is most likely no driver problem. The way you described it makes me think it's a hardware issue.
Inside the headphone jack is a "micro switch that cuts the connection to the build in speakers as soon as anything is plugged in there. Sometimes those switches get stuck (especially if one uses headphone jacks that are slightly thicker than 3.5mm.
You could try plug/unplug the headphones (or a similar plug) several times to "unstuck" the switch

this is my first build so im sure i missed something stupid

Answer:cant make it work

Start with resetting your bios and see if you can boot up. See page 2-22 of your manual on how to do this with the board's jumpers.

If this doesn't fix you up, confirm the following:

-Do you have the 12v power connection seated? Your motherboard needs two connections, the 24 pin and the 12v connector.
-Did you use riser pins between your motherboard and the case?
-What is your graphics card? Does it require its own power connection? Most newer cards do. If so, did you connect it?
-What speed is your ram? Take it out and re-seat it.
-What make/model is your PSU? How many watts is it rated at and how many amps does it have on the +12v rail? You can find this info on the sticker attached to the PSU side.

Let us know these first. Good luck!

Answer:What do I do to make it work?

You can try to factory reset the phone, but from what you described you probably are facing a hardware problem. Which means you'll need to take the phone to a Care Centre to have it repaired.
Since the warranty on your Nokia L900 has very likely expired already, you'll have to pay for the repair. In which case you might want to consider buying a new phone.

It would be nice if I could just swap, but sadly, that is just not going to happen. They both have XP Professional... is this a driver issue that is keeping me from just swapping?

Thanks in advance!

Answer:How do I make this work?

You got about a 98% chance that it will fail, 2% that it will work. I have had it work in the past with XP but not tried it with any other OS yet. When I did get it to work, I had to reinstall most drivers and even then it was still flaky. If you can, try it, then back up the files you need and wipe it out. You may even get Windows Activation errors depending on the version of XP you are running.

The following list of possible problems and fixes for CDROM errors is not intended to cover every possibility. It will, however, cover the majority of the problems that we see on a regular basis. Please try all of the solutions that fit your problem, and if they don't work, let us know that you have tried them, and what the results were.

1) Physical problems - the drawer won't open, the disc doesn't spin. There are really only 3 things that can make this happen. Bad drive, bad controller, loose cable. So, check all the cables - if they are in tight, it is time for a new drive. Bad controllers are pretty rare.

2) Software problems - the drive used to work, but now doesn't show up in My Computer or Windows Explorer.

Check in Device Manager (Start, Settings, Control Panel, System, Device Manager) for any ! showing next to the HDD controller.

a) If you find one, check for a virus.

b) If there is no virus, check your registry for the NOIDE key:

i'd say, the answer to thisr question is 'yes' in 99.9% of all cases. however, another question remains: is it worth the effort and time?

reinstallation hardly takes an hour for experienced hands, a drive image (if you have one) is restored in 5 minutes, give and take. now you compare this to the tedious process of clearing out malware, fixing registry entries, restoring system files and missing DDLs, etc.

no, it is not safe to say so. it all depends on how the computer has been (ab)used and looked after.

More to the point, how do I get my old hard drive to work on my new PC\motherboard without having to format it and reinstall windows?

Modem -> Wifi Router 10/100mbps -> 2 wired PC, 3 wifi laptops

PC1: Asus Commando (2 nic)
PC2: Asus Rampage 2 Extreme (2 nic)

PC1 is my downloading machine, sometimes i download x264, movie packs (at least 40-60gb). When i copy from PC1 to PC2 my speed is from 10-11.5mbps. Both PC have gigabit nics (so i bought a CAT6 patch cord) directly connected both PC and my transfer rate jumped to 32mbps-33mbps.

PC1 (nic1) connected to router
(nic2) with CAT6 connected to nic2 of PC2

PC2 (nic1) connected to router
(nic2) with CAT6 connected to nic2 of PC1

If i enable nic2 (CAT6) i loose my internet connection, is there a way for me to connect both CAT5 (to browse the internet) and CAT6 for filetransfers?

Answer:How can I make this work?

Can setup a few different ways....but one way...
Unbind File and Print Sharing services from the NICs connected to your router (uncheck box in adapter properties)
On the NICs directly connected to each other....make that IP range different than the IP range of your router, so say your routers range is, make these NICs IP addresses something like and, 24 bit subnet on both, and leave the gateway blank. Don't even need DNS entries if you enable netbios over IP for each.

hello. i am new here and I just need your help.I bought a nice case south-pak(dot)com and transferred everything I need to transfer. The first day of using it was great. The next day, I wasn't able to use my desktop since I was out.  I turned it on yesterday, but it won't start. I don't know what happened. Got so many important files there. It worked fine the first time I used it. Can someone tell me what happened or any idea about it?

Answer:i can't make it work.please help

It is unclear whether you got a whole new computer and transfered the files or if you just got a new case. If you just got a new case, check to make sure that the motherboard has standoffs so it is not pressed up against the metal of the case. When you turn it on, do any fans start spinning? Does the screen come on?If you got a whole new desktop computer did you reformat and reinstall windows or just put the drive from the old one?

I sent to look at my Sent Items tonight and to my surprise I saw another email apparently sent yesterday that I definitely didn't send.

I was astonished to find this as I have just upgraded to Vista in the last 2 days and have sent minimal emails.

The subject is "Form posted from Microsoft Internet Explorer." & is sent to a Hotmail account. The attachment is a POSTDATA.ATT. When I look at this file in txt format it has info such as one of my email addresses, my website & description - as if I had filled out a web form & pressed Submit.

Now, thinking about it, shouldn't IE let you know that it is about to send data?

One strange thing is that the email is dated yesterday evening in the Sent list, but when I open the email to view it, it will always have the current date & time - seemingly from the Windows clock.

I am thinking that either

1) this is due to a bug in the new IE & yesterday I visited a website which submitted data via email without my knowledge or

2) this email is an old email that I Imported from backed up email (PST format) from a form I ACTUALLY sent that Internet Mail has redated - maybe something went

Sorry for the long post but I'm just wary, hope it makes sense! I was liking Windows Vista so far!

Answer:Sent Items: Form posted from Microsoft Internet Explorer. - I didnt submit any form!

I have moved this to vista forum as I believe it is more likely to be a vista live mail issue

Hi All,

Noob first-time poster I'm afraid!

I'm new to Access 2007 (but have used 2003 & 2000 reasonably extensively).

I'm building an App and have created all the necessary tables, as well as creating the relationships in the Database Tools area (which I know are correct - I'm a SQL Server DBA in my day job)!

Anyway, it's an almost text book example of an employers and employees database; one employer having many employees (employerID is the foreign key on the employee table).

I have created an employer form (using the wizard) which is fine, but then when I add a button to open the employee form (selecting 'Open the form and find specific records', matching employerID on the Employer table with EmployerID on the Employee table) it doesnt work. Instead, I get a popup box asking me for the EmployerID! Even if I manually enter the correct employerID when the popup box appears it actually displays all records, so I'm sure that the problem is more fundamental (and therefore, probably my fault)!

I'm hoping that I've just overlooked something REALLY stupid, but would apprecaite any suggestions!


Answer:Access 2007 Form Button Wizard - Form does not open with the correct records

I have seen this kind of problem with Access 2007 VBA code which does not work when it dod in 2000-2003.
It can be a Syntax problem which you may be able to get around, if not you can get around the problem bby using a Criteria in the Query that supplies the Employee Form.
Although I would have thought it would be better design wise to have the Employees as a Subform or Tabbed Subform on your Employer Mainform.
I do not have Access 2007, only 2003 so I can't help with the VBA, but you could post the code anyway.

Did you use a Wizard to create the Employee Form, if so check the Record Source SQL it may be preventing your EmployerID from working.

Hi all

I have a simple Access (2003) db which has a single form view with a subform. The main form is a record based upon a physical case file the subform only details actions past and future, a sort of event log.

I also have a continuous form which displays all upcoming actions sorted by date on all cases for a particular user so they can see just how busy they are likely to be for a particular period. What I would like to do is have an on click() property for the detail of the continuous form so that it opens the main form filtered by the record in the continuous form that was clicked. User can then update or add new events for that case before closing form and returning to the continuous form

Hope this makes sense

Answer:MS access open single form filtered by selected record in continuous form

coasterman, welcome to the Forum.
It makes perfect sense.
If you add a Command Button to the Continuous Form and after selecting the mainform select the "Open the Form and find specific data to display". This will give you the code that you need to add to your On Click or On Double Click property or of course leave the button and use that.

Hi all. I do have another post going but do not want to cram so many questions in one post. (Hope that this is an acceptable practice )Anyway, my Sony desktop crashed the other day. I had a new Hard Drive installed and recovery disks were used. PC is good to go. Trying to tweek it back to the way I am used to having it.QUESTION:I had a form filler program called ROBOFORM on this PC before it crashed. I had MANY years of passwords and stuff saved there.When I brought this PC to the Geek Squad at Best Buy the other day to see if the PC could be repaired, I was told the hard drive went. They were, however, able to make a disk with my ROBOFORM passwords. I can not get the disc to open the list of passwords. It asks me where I want to open the and give me a list of choices. (Paint, notepad, adobe etc.) None of them will run/open the files so I can see them.This was a program that I paid for. How can I make the disc start to fill my forms again when I am at certain sites? (Gee, hope I am making sense)I just realized I never downloaded the ROBOFORM program onto this pc.  Does that have anything to do with the disc not opening??If I go and download ROBOFORM, how does it know who I am. How will it know about the disc full of passwords? How do they recognize each other?HELP PLEASE..........My Passwords are VERY important to me.Thanks!!

Always been a small business network guy...when adding printers to workstations it's easy to browse to the print share from the server, right click and connect..and BAM they're all set.

Taking care of a growing network where I'd like to automate deploying printers. They're still currently on Small Business Server 2003 R2. I went to try the 2K3 R2 Print Management Console method..but that feature of R2 to deploy it via GP seems to be crippled in SBS. There are member servers in this domain which are R2, but I'm finding an issue trying to connect it to a GPO. Maybe more research as I'm not a whiz on GPOs yet.

So I figured to get this one printer rushed out...I'd try the old PrintUI.DLL in the login script.
Seemed simple enough,

The printer is actually a Canon iR2880 Fax which I need to deploy. Treated just like a printer, and it's installed just like a printer when doing the right click connect from the server share. So I thought PrintUI.DLL would be able to do it.

The server sharing it as \\host-17
(not my naming convention..existing server)
The print share is say, iR2880Fax
So \\host-17\iR28880Fax

So I add the following to the login script in my first attempt, reading from Microsofts document "PrintUI.DLL Userís Guide and Reference"

rundll32 printui.dll PrintUIEntry /in /n\\machine\printer
Which I edit to show as
rundll32 printui.dll PrintUIEntry /in /n\\Host-17\iR2880Fax

No love, I Google ... Read more

Answer:PrintUI.DLL OK why can't I make it work?b

RunDll32.EXE printui.dll,PrintUIEntry /in /n \\wha-server\Dell_3115cn_Legal

Thats what I use on my clients.

Hello guys.. I was hoping some of you could give me a hand here.A little background, my main computer a DELL 320 was taken away for some time, as it is needed in a families office, and it seems it will be for a very long time.So basically they left me without a computer, except this one I'm using right now, an old Compaq 5106CL.. now, I do remember this machine being of great performance back in it's day. But right now I'm limited as to what I can do with it. These are a couple of issues I'm having with it:-Youtube videos lag incredibly, audio is okay, but as far as frames.. it's very pathetic.-When trying to watch movies in WMP or VLAN, the computer will do a system block, and freeze completely.-Computer slows down when using Messenger, and any other browser at the same time. -Internet browsing is extremely slow in websites that have either Java, or flash player, sometimes causing a system freeze.I'm running Windows XP Professional with 376mb of ram, it's been the same for 4 years. Is there anything I can do to try speeding up this computer..? I really need your help guys, I don't have much money, so I doubt I can make big upgrades to it, but anything you can recommend to help it cope with what I need it to do would be great.Thank you very much for your time guys.

Nothing works! I have some kind of virus which redirects me to these other search sites- like asklots-

Everything I try to do just stops. Any spyware/malware seeking program either won't open or just closes as quickly as it opens. I've tried malwarebytes, spybot, avira. Avira will run but it doesn't bring up any suspicious files/ viruses, etc.

If a program opens once, it shuts down right away and won't reopen no matter what I do.

I can't even get hijack this to stay open- as soon as it begins to scan/ make a log for me, it closes and can't be reopened. I tried to remove the program but add/remove said it wasn't even installed- even though it was right there on my desktop along with a second shorcut icon to start it. I know I probably made it worse but I went into my program files folder and deleted it from there, then installed it again, and the same thing happened again.

I keep getting stopped and a window pops up saying "windows cannot access the specified device, path, or file. You may not have the appropriate permissions to access the item." This window comes up whenever I try to use any spyware search/removal program.

The icon for malwarebytes on my desltop only shows the generic white exe window icon- it won't show the proper malware icon- what does that mean?

I am also trying to enable wifi in winpe 10. I was able to enable on winpe3.1, winpe5.0 and winpe5.1. I followed the same steps as of previous winpe versions, but couldn't able to enable wifi in winpe 10. It seems, nativewifip service is not running. further investigation shows that, required registry entries are not there in registry for nativewifip. Generally these will be updated when we install netnwifi.inf file. "netcfg -l netnwifi.inf -c s -I MS_NativeWifiP" is returning success but registry entries are not updated for nativewifip service. when I cross checked the netnwifi.inf in windows 10 against windows8, there are differences. in netnwifi.inf of windows10, no entries related to nativewifip available. Is there any change from windows8 to wndows10. If any one tried enabling wifi in winpe10, can you please give the pointers.

Hello, I'm using touch enabled hp laptop with hp pen. Yesterday, I downloaded(purchased) Tablet pro app from app store to use tablet function more well. And I tried using it with ZBRUSH (3D sculpting program), but it was not working well. Because I couldn't use alt or ctrl key with tablet pro when I use the pen on the screen.I realized when I use the pen on the screen, touch turns off.

Where to start well I guess I can say I know just enough to get myself in trouble. A friend talked me into upgrading my tv card because I would have trouble it from time to time so I got the ati card. needless to say I cant get it to work right. I believe it is conflicting with something else possible the graphic card I am really not sure. when it does fire up the sound can be choppy and the picture and sound locks up. other times when it does fire up it works fairly well, but then other times when trying to fire it up it says tv function not aviable. so I really dont know what to do. I was on the phone with an ati tech and he did everything he knew to do, then told me to try it in another machine. ?? what good will that do me? if anyone has any ideas please let me know. my only recourse is to send it back and try and get my money back.
just a little info the motherboard has a onboard graphic card but my friend supposedly disabled it. I dont know if it is a ram issue or the two graphic cards working against each other.

any ideas will greatly appreciate.

p.s. homemade machine - running windows xp pro, pc chips motherboard,amd 1800+ proscessor, 1 gig of ram.

Answer:ATI TV Wonder550(wonder how to make it work!)

The tech wants you to try it in another machine to determine if the card is at fault or the computer. Swapping it out would be a good idea so you know it is a good card.
