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 http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

Hello,

Reinstalled all Sony Pre-Loaded software,
which did NOT include any Prior version of MS Office. (Other than a Trial
Version of Office 2003 which I never used or installed. It's still in my
computer) Have no idea what version it is. Simply doesn't say because it's never been installed. It's sitting in the same start menu as all of the other MS Office 2007 Programs.
In another message forum I was told to delete it. However, Office 2007 Pro worked fine for 2 days with the Trial program still sitting in the Start folder.

I managed to install MS Office Professional 2007 and it's worked
for 2 days without a hitch. Today, I get the error message when I try to use
Outlook "Cannot start MS Office Outlook. Cannot initialize MS Office Shared
Utilities. Restart your computer Or reinstall MS Office Outlook." No Luck!!
Also, when I try to start up MS Word, the message says "Not enought memory
to load Word." (I have 2 Gig of Ram and a 320 Gig hard Drive???)

When I insert the Office Pro 2007 disk to Reinstall, the message is: "The
path you have chosen does not point at a qualifying upgradable product.
Click Try again or Cancel to quit setup."

I also don't have ANY previous versions of any Office Suite program to use.
I had Office 2003 Pro installed but that was deleted when I purchased Office 2007 Pro. I do have the disks for Office
2007 Pro.

For the record, I am an American living in Cali, Columbia. It... Read more

I am getting the following error when I try to reinstall a custom setup office XP install on a windows 2000 machine.

"OFFXP: Setup Detects Office XP Running When You Attempt to Install Office XP"

I had the uninstall the office xp on this machine through add/remove programs because it was crashing alot. The custom install works fine on all other windows 2000 and xp machines.

I found the following error in MS knowledgebase
article 292497 (I can't post the link because I'm a new member)

It says to to hit ignore. If I hit ignore it does install but it doesn't install with the correct options for the custom install. (I have it set to not install outlook and it installs outlook, etc.) Obviously its not following the custom install.

Any ideas? I believe something is left on the pc from office when it was installed. I even ran the Removal Wizard on the Office XP Resource kit. It is supposed to remove everything left from previous versions. However, it must be missing something because I am still getting that error when I try to reinstall Office XP that is described above.

ThankS!

I have an old Win XP machine with Office 2007 that I am replacing with a shiny new Win 10 machine. I have purchased Office 365 Home Subscription. I will need to keep both machines running for at least a few months because of one software application that I cannot port to the Win 10 machine. I also have an iPhone and an iPad.
 
I have several email accounts not all with the same host. Most are with GoDaddy. I have two that were for two different businesses I ran and a couple for personal use.
 
I need help configuring the email so that I can get messages on all of these devices (old Win XP machine, new Win 10 machine, iPad, & iPhone).
 
I have several questions:
Can the old and new machines share email messages if one is running Office 2007 and the other Office 365? Or do I have to upgrade the old machine to Office 365?
The old machine is currently set up as POP3. Is that going to be a problem?
Is there a way that I can "ignore" emails that I see on one mobile device and have it also not show up on any other mobile devices, but not be deleted and still show up on the PC?
If I set up an email folder structure, will that structure be mirrored on the server and also on all of the other devices? If I move an email from one folder to another or move an entire folder, will that be propagated to the server and all devices?
Are any of the books out there any good at helping me sort all this out? If so, which ones?
Thanks for any tips or pointers...

Answer:Email setup when converting from Office 2007 & Win XP to Office 365 & Win 10

Can the old and new machines share email messages if one is running Office 2007 and the other Office 365? Or do I have to upgrade the old machine to Office 365?
 
          Yes, but this is more dependent on the protocol you use to access the messages than the versions of Office.
 
 
The old machine is currently set up as POP3. Is that going to be a problem?
 
          Most likely yes.  Post Office Protocol (POP) is "first generation" protocol for dealing with e-mail before the age when someone was likely to be trying to juggle the same e-mail messages on multiple devices.   It is a client side arrangement, which means your e-mail messages (in most default configurations) are downloaded to the device you're reading them on and as soon as that's done, or at some set time afterward, they are deleted from the server and are no longer available for additional download to other devices.
 
          If you expect to be wanting to juggle the same messages across multiple devices you should convert to the Internet Message Access Protocol (IMAP).  IMAP is a server side protocol, where all messages, and the folders that you set up, and the filters you create to sort them into those folders, are all created and stored on the e-mail server.  The devices that access your mail all connect to the server and get the folder setup and the message headers (usually) until you ...

Hi there.. I have one desktop PC in my house and another laptop with wireless functionality. My desktop pc did not have wireless functionality so i bought a wireless card.

My internet line connects to a pc through a USB slot and hence only one pc can be connected to the line at a time.

So i purchased a wireless card (PCI) for my desktop pc, a netgear WG311v3 which is now installed fully. My intention of purchasing the wireless card is to have my internet line connected to my desktop, and then by using internet sharing wirelessly i want to have my laptop share the internet with the desktop.

My problem is, i dont really know what to do.
Both the desktop and the laptop have Vista as their OS.
I did make an attempt to set up an ad-hoc connection using the vista process in "network and sharing" but when the connection was established the laptop could not access the net. The name of the connection as such was "desktop to laptop". And when i entered the "the network and sharing" afterwards, it was displayed that the access for "desktop to laptop" was "local only".. And i think this is why the laptop cant access the net..

Can someone please help me with a step by step guide to set up a new working connection?

I'm not sure how to ask this question and I hope you all can understand what i'm trying to say.

My office is located downstairs while my DSL/router is hooked up upstairs and I enabled connectivity wireless so I can use my laptop anywhere in the house. I recently added a desktop in my office but no wireless NIC card built in and this is where my question is. At this point I think I have two options maybe three.
1. is to buy a wireless nic card and install it or
2. run a cat 5 cable from upstairs all the way down to my office.
3. ?Internet sharing ?

I was wondering since my laptop is right next to my desktop and I noticed that my laptop have a lan port to connect with cat 5 cable. Can I just connect that to my desktop and enable internet sharing? That way my laptop can use wireless and my desktop can use internet if and only the cat 5 is plug in? What is the easiest way to tackle this?

Thanks,

Answer:Is internet sharing possible with this setup?

The cheapest solution is to buy a wireless nic. Match your nic to your router (a/b/g/n). Also, be sure to use good encryption (e.g., WPA2). Nothing wrong with running CAT, but you will need to drill (obviously). Internet sharing would be the least desirable.

I have mistakenly attempted to upgrade Windows 98SE to XP Home Edition. Unfortunately, halfway through the setup process, I was educated on the fact that both OS would be using a single boot partition. I attempted to download the necessary upgrade software from Microsoft, but it had no affect. I would like to remove the XP setup as it prompts me at startup to choose between continuing XP setup or running 98SE. Thank you for your time.

Hi all and thanks for any help in advance.

Trying to share files on two computers using a D-link DI-604 4 port Ethernet Broadband router with a built in 4 port switch. Ran network connection wiz on both units (both running XP Home). Internet connection is fine on both units. On one unit, MSHOME under network connections is showing both systems but after running the wizard on the other system (aparently successfully), It doesnt even recognize that a network has been set up. Can someone explain the correct way to set these two computers up to share files with this particular config?

I originally had the two computers connected with a crossover cable to transfer files, if that helps anything.

Thanks so much

Hello,

I am trying to setup a password protected file sharing network for our small office. We have a couple machines running Vista home basic 32 bit, a couple running XP home, and one running XP pro. We have been file sharing without password protection for awhile but we are worried about waking up to a nasty prank, or worse. Most of the posts I've come across are people trying to figure out how to turn off password protection, but we actually want it on. To start, I am just trying to protect the files on a vista home basic 32 bit computer. Once I get that to work, I will move on to the other computers. I turned on password protected sharing. I setup user accounts on all the computers with the same user name and password as an account on the protected computer. Nevertheless, I get prompted for the username and password when I try to access the shared folder. I type in the username and password and the prompt screen just refreshes itself, this time with the network address and username in the username field. I can't figure out why. I read somewhere that it will only prompt you for this info if you are logged in under a username that isn't on the machine you are trying to access, or if the correctly named user account has a different password.
In that instance, you enter the correct info and get access. Well, I do have the correct username and password and it prompts me anyhow. Then, it still doesnt grant access when I put in the correct info. So, I am stuck.

I have a Shuttle XPC SB75G2 w/ a Pentium 3.0C, 1 GB DDR400. I'm going to buy a huge ass HD, prob 2 x 250 GB HDs simply for file storage (Audio & Video files). I have space for 2 HDs nothing more!

I have a copy of Windows XP Pro that I could use and just setup up a couple user names for people in my home to log into, but I'd prefer to use a *real* OS for serving.

I dont want to spend the ca$h for Windows 2000 Server, because I'm running a full Apple network (iMacs and Power Macs, and one PowerBook G4).

I know I could use a Windows OS, but I'd like to run Linux

I've downloaded a couple distros (Mandrake 9.x, Fedora Core 1, and Suse - the boot.iso).

I have used FC1 during beta and liked it so its prob what I'm going to go with (unless someone sways me otherwise!)

So my question is how do I setup Linux to be a file server? I know during the install I have the option... so I'm assuming that all I need to do is create my "users" and boom - I'm done?

I'm using OS X 10.3 on all my Macs and I want the user accounts on the Linux box to reflect the user names on their Macs (easier naming convention).

How do I share out a folder? etc...

I've never done this so all the more info the better!

Thanks for any help.
 

Answer:Want to setup a linux box for file sharing!

Samba is what you'll want to use vfor a mixed network.

www.samba.org

you create samba users, you configure your shares in /etc/samba/smb.conf, and you set samba to run at startup. pretty straightforward, but it can be tricky, so maybe google around for a guide. There's a nice write-up about it on overclockers.conm's forum in the alt OS section that's stickied.

I wish there was a cheaper sFTP client because I use WebDrive by SouthRiver right now and it's amazing, but it's too expensive for say 10-20 seats.

Both computers are used at different intervals so both must be able to connect to the internet indvidullay (understand that can not share files if other computer not turn on)

Is this possible to setup with what i have??

Answer:File sharing / Home Network Setup

well according to this site http://www.netcomm.com.au/ADSL/NB1300.php you can connect to computers to the net using one in ethernet and one in usb. but im not sure if you would be able to share files etc. it mentions on the site that you can combine your modem with a switch which will distribute the internet to whichever computers are connected. A switch will let the computers communicate and therefore you can share files.

Hope this helps

ps.Setting up file sharing is simple. Once you have your home network setup (using the wizard?) just find the folders you would like to share, right click and click sharing and security. Then make that a shared folder.

I need to share MS Office on 20 WIN98 workstations. I don't know what to do. Would I simply share the folder, link to the folder from the workstations, and then Map the folder? How would I get the Office programs in the programs folders on each of the workstations? Please respond.
 

Answer:Sharing MS Office with NT4

Versions prior to Office 2000 dont work very well as a shared install, I dont think Network Installation is even an option anymore. You are much better off licensing and installing Office on each workstation.
But if you have to do a shared install, install Office on the server, share the Office Folder, map to the share from each workstation. You can then create shortcuts to each .exe and put them on the Desktop.

Ok, I currently have

Internet --> Broadband router -->
#1) Main Workstation (Win 7, has 2 Gigabit lans, one used from router)
#2) Win Xp Fileserver (1 ethernet connector, one used from router)
How can I share files between 1 & 2? do I need a direct cable between the two? do I need a switchbox? additional network adapter for #2?

How do I wire them? Settings?
 

Answer:Fileserver sharing with existing setup? Hardware+Settings

If both of the devices are plugged into your router and can get to the internet, they are already wired up. A home router is more than just a router, it's a router/firewall/switch. If you are using the same username / password combination for both pcs it actually makes things less complex as the computer will provide the login information for you.

On Windows 7, open up My Computer and find the folder you want to share. Right click on it, share with > specific people. Your current username should already be in the list with read / write permissions. Click the share button to accept the changes.

Windows XP. Open up My computer and find the folder you want to share. Right click on it,and click on sharing and security. Check the box to "share this folder on the network" and if you would like to modify files on the other pc check the box to allow network users to change my files. Click okay.

Once you have the shares you can map a drive letter to them. Right click on my computer and choose map network drive. Click the browse button and start clicking through the network until you find the other pc and it's share. Alternatively you can put in \\computername\sharename or \\ipaddress\sharename. So the computer I want to connect to is box1 and the folder I shared was called share, I would put in \\box1\share or \\192.168.1.2\share if the ip address of that pc was 192.168.1.2.

I want to set up a central storage location for my home's digital media (videos, music, etc) so that it can be shared with all my devices (PS3, tv, computers, etc) and I was wondering what is the BEST way to go about this. I've looked into different setups and here are the options I have found and their pros and cons:

Option A): A wireless n router with a USB port that would allow for an external hard drive to be connected. Pros: cheaper than a NAS device....Cons: some say (including CNET) that external hard drives don't do well at streaming HD videos through a router

Option B): a wireless n router with a NAS device attached. Pros: proven to stream HD videos better (according to CNET)....Cons: costs more than option A (cheapest NAS disk-less device is about $150)

Are there other options I have not found or considered? Do the pros and cons I have found sound accurate? Any advice and help would be greatly appreciated!

I have this setup - using a linksys router WAG320N and stream wirelessly to my TV via a Humax PVR and also Via a Panasonic TV both internet connected via a wireless repeater - stream music OK, and i have streamed a couple of videos - BUT not extensive , as I had my Humax PVR and stream HD via iplayer over the net all OK - also trailed Sky on humax and that also worked very well

However, I will be adding a NAS server later as i want to be able to add more than 1 drive and have more contol of the media server - Probably a Qnap device , I'm quite disappointed with the way the media server works - as the music is listed alphabetically , so an album is shown with the titles in alphabetic order , I also want to be able to manage the server from a remote device
Also Raid can be used , so there is some redundancy and less risk of losing everything if the drive goes down, which it will do eventually

But the Router option is OK for the moment and a lot cheaper as you say ..

How do intend to connect the music to the Hifi, I use the Humax/TV onto a hifi amp at the moment
what will the main use be ?
And what kit do you intend to connect to ?

Howdy, I have Office 2010 installed and I just added another user to my computer. Most of my installed programs are available to the other user but for some reason Office hasn't carried over. It's for my daughter and I want her to have access to Word for homework, etc. Does anyone know a way that I can share office with her user profile? Any help is most appreciated.

Answer:Sharing MS Office with other users

Have you tried right-clicking on the Start Screen, accessing the all apps view, then finding the specific app in question and right-clicking that and selecting "pin to start"? Alternatively, you could try a repair (or full) install and see if you get the "install for all users" prompt but I don't use Office 2010 so I can't say for sure. Anyway, good luck.

Hi guys,

I am really hoping someone can help me on this...

Background - three users constantly receive the "Your changes could not be saved to 'file name.xls' because of a sharing violation. Try saving to a different file". It then changes the file name to a random alphanumeric name.

These normally happen to MS Office files (particularly Excel) sitting on a network file server and have been left opened overnight.

When this happens, we can see that the user will have multiple sessions open on the file server under Computer Management > Shared Folders > Sessions and one of those sessions will have an "Idle time" of almost the same amount of time when the next session starts. For example, if they have two sessions, one session will be have an Idle time of 9.04 hours and the second session would have a connected time of 9.04 hours. Both sessions have files open and normally when we see this "Idle time", it will lead to sharing violation errors.

Things we have done:
1. Turn off autodisconnect in the registry on the File server
2. Disable AV (Kaspersky AV 6.0) scanning on the folder where the file resides on the File Server
3. Disable AV on the client PC
4. Added KeepConn registry setting on the client PC
5. Updated NIC drivers on the client PC
6. Set NIC settings to never power off to save power

Hello,
I have been trying for hours to set up some sort of working network between my laptop, wireless modem, and desktop computer in which I can print wirelessly via my laptop. Currently my desktop computer is running windows xp and is connected to my kodak printer by USB, it is also conected to my linksys router via an ethernet cable which then sends internet to my laptop. I have set up the internet connection and it works great on both units but now I really need to have the ability to print wirelessly over my laptop. Both my laptop and desktop are on the workgroup: "MSHOME" however I can't find a way to connect to my desktop printer from my laptop, I have tried many "solutions" on Microsofts support site; none resolved the problem. So far I have downloaded the necessary software for the printer on both computers (drivers included), I have enabled all sharing options on either unit allowing printer sharing, and I have tried to set up a network to no avail.

hi all,

I should state first of all i'm a newbie to computers so if you have any responses please write in layman terms.

I connect to the web through a modem which is connected to a D-link router, this worked fine until about 2 weeks ago. I can connect to net but the set up in doing so has completely changed from when I first used the computer.

first the D-link doesnt appear when searching for devices when I try to start a new network connection. Although I'm able to use the web through the modem and router, the other computers no longer see the network via there wi-fi.

My Networking and Sharing Centre seems to have reverted to a basic layout or set up, I can only connect through something called 'Wan Miniport (pppoe)'.
where as when I first setup a connection I was able to set up the following
SSID:
Channel: recommended
Encryption: WPA2-PSK
Password:
I dont have these options any more, not even when I remove all my network connections and try a completely new network.

I am trying to explain my problem but I'm not sure if I can, but to help I've added pics.

Note the second picture down, the username and password are not mine!!!


can anyone make sense of my problem, thanks

Answer:internet connection setup in Network and Sharing Centre corrupt!

Let's start at the beginning. Try unplugging the router from the electric plug and from the PC. Leave it unplugged for about two minutes. Plug the router in the wall and then into your computer. See if that does anything different than what you have now. Let me know if your router is wireless or is connected to your PC. Thanks,

Answer:New Office setup

Don't get the motherboard, MSI or dfi are the way to go there are other good makes as well, but you want the big names like MSI, DFI or Abit.
You have chosen the most reliable make harddrvie, you might want to go for sata though, maybe even get anouther and put it in RAID1 (extra reliability)

I can't see a psu.... For reliabilty and safety as well, get Antec, Thermaletake or ocz.

It is all compatible though (apart from no psu, but that is a wrong link by the looks of it.)

This software is for Parish Records (Deaths and marriages, Church finance etc) and the Software Company that has written this has specfied Windows XP Professional. As a member of the Select Vestry, I have been tasked with kitting this office out with its requirements.Now, here is my problem, what is the cheapest way to kit these two Computers with the latest Microsoft Office Aplication (I don't know if that is Microsoft Office XP or 2005? .......they need to have Word, Excell, Powerpoint)Can we buy one edition of Office and put it on the two computers or do we buy one edition and get a licence for the other? What is the cheapest way to kit out these two computers ( remembering that this is a church office and we would want to do the honest and right way...... NOT dodgy.......LOL) Any suggestions on were we could get the best deals?We haven't bought the Computers yet but is there any mileage in trying to get a deal when purchasing them....in getting the complete package? At the moment, we are looking at Dell for the computers.Your help and suggestions in this matter would be greatly appreciated.ThanksHarry

Answer:New Office Setup - Can Anyone Help?

Unfortunately you will need to buy a copy of Office for both PCs. 2 PCs is too small a group to apply for any discounts.The question you need to ask is "Do I actually need Microsoft Office?" there are plenty of cheaper alternatives, for instance Open Office is completely free but includes most of the funtionality of Microsoft Office, but doesn't include any technical support.Sun Star Office costs about 50, is more or less the same as Open Office, includes technical support, and you may be able to install it on several PCs.Check with your software company to see if Microsoft Office is necessary.Hope this helpsAlan

It's not a real big network, so I'm sure that a consumer router would be fine.

Not sure the best way to approach this.

or...

Hi all, this is my first post so please bear with me!

We've just bought a new laptop that came pre-installed with Windows 8, after my wife dropped our trusty old Dell.

I have installed our now rather aged copy of Office 2007 via my user account (as I guess the administrator), doing a standard install, with the programmes dropping into Program Files.

When my wife then logs into her account she cannot see or use Office (on either the fancy tiled screen, as I can, or the desktop). I have no idea what to do to ensure that she can access and use office, short of installing it again when logged in as her?

I hope this makes sense?

If not already evident I am pretty non-techie, so please assume (correctly) minimal knowledge when replying.

Any and all help gratefully received.

Answer:Sharing office across multiple users - help please!

Hi there
It's a SINGLE USER system although re-installs per user on the SAME PC don't count as separate activations.

You'll just have to re-install for each user.

The only other way is to install it on a SERVER - but then you'd need SERVER software and each person would need a SEPARATE machine to access the server -- so in your case just re-install OFFICE for each user.

Cheers

Afternoon All,

I currently look after a small network as a favor to an office. They have 10 work stations within the building that use to run off daisy chained hubs. I have since replaced this for a 24 port switch and installed a small workstation for a server. They now want to connect a workstation which is on a different site. I have trialed a VPN connection to a workstation running windows 7 pro, all worked fine.

My question is what kind of security should i be putting in place, the only thing that protects their network at present is a wireless router modem that has a basic firewall, which i am sure won't be good enough giving that i am about to start VPN'ing in. I'm looking at a firebox product but I'm not to clued up on hardware firewalls.

Does a watchgaurd firebox sit between the internet modem and the switch? or am I mistaken?

If someone could explain the topology and put me right that would be great.

Sam
 

Answer:office network setup

There is really no way to secure the network with just a peer to peer like you are running unless you set up accounts for every workstation the remote client needs access to. If you are referring to security from the internet your current router is only showing the WAN IP address to the world so they have no idea what is behind the router. A firewall like the Watchguard does sit between your LAN and the Internet and will give you an added layer of protection.

I am trying to setup a small office network 2 maybe 3 computers. The computers are running Win XP Pro. I have DSL for internet access. The computers all connect to the internet via a router. How can I setup a network and have file sharing safely?

What I did so far:
Ran the setup wizard on 2 computers and created the workgroup. Selected no file sharing becasue I got a message saying it was not safe and anyone online can access my files. When I try accessing the workgroup on the 2 computers, I get a message saying I am not allowed.

I have McAfee firewall installed.

Any ideas on how I can do this?

Thank you.
 

Answer:Setup Office Network

Well, you can't have file sharing if you're not willing to share your files!

It's true that any folders you share will be available to any other computers on YOUR network. Unless you deliberately configure it differently, the router's firewall will protect your computers from the rest of the world.

If you can prevent others from plugging an ethernet cable into your router, and if you do not have wireless, or have your wireless protected with a strong WPA passphrase, you are pretty safe from an outsider gaining access to your network.

Furthermore, you can configure the McAfee firewall to allow access from a very small range of IP addresses. And if you don't use Simple File Sharing, XP Pro gives you all kinds of ways to specify exactly who can get what kind of access to what files.

When starting a new install of a tax program on Win 2000 and Win XP workstations the splash screen displays with a message box partially hidden behind it. The hidden message shows on the task bar as "MS Office SR1 Setup, Disk 1".
Can not get the hidden window to come to the foreground.
If I end task then both programs terminate.
I have about ten customers who have encountered this.
They install the new app when logged in as administrator or user with admin privileges.

One user has found a work around of logging on as administrator or changing shortcut to start program as Administrator.

Has any one else experienced this or have a solution

Question: Small Office Setup

Hi all,

I work in a small office where we have one PC desktop (windows7 Pro), one Mac, and one PC (windows7 Home Prem.). I would like to use the PC desktop as a server for sharing files with the Mac and Laptop. I have a lynksys router already setup for internet use and the PC desktop has a 1terabyte external hardrive (seagate) that stores all files via usb port. I think I have all that I need, but would appreciate any advice.

Thanks
 

Answer:Small Office Setup

Using a NAS (Network Attached Storage) is better, but since you already have the external hard drive that will be OK if it meets your needs. Remember to backup frequently, as external hard drives also fail.

Hi there, I have a plotter/cutter that is connected to a USB port on one system in the network. I currently share software. Is it possible to share the USB so that other systems can use the plotter/cutter?
 

Answer:Sharing a USB port on Windows XP office network

Hi Trevorsd,

You don't share a USB Port but you do share a Printer. Go to Control Panel, Faxes and Printers and mark the printer for sharing on the system it is connected to. You must also load the printer driver for the printer on each system that is to use it. Your Plotter driver may not allow such a load. Check with the printer maker.

Good Luck, Jim

Not sure if this belongs here or on the networking board. Anyway...
We have a network of about 20 pcs. I recently installed four new machines that run Windows 7 with Office 2010. The server is running Server 2003. Three of the machines worked perfectly from the beginning, accessing the server and sharing folders and files. One machine will only open files in "read only" mode. I have shared all the folders and given every permission there is but it will only open the files in "read only". It is a critical accounting machine that has to share and change files. What am I missing?
 

Answer:Sharing folders and files in Office 2010

hmm; your wording is imprecise so need to make sure what you mean,

Office 2010 can not be shared other than the Calendar events and that's not done
via "sharing".

You don't state the application that is sharing the common file on the server,
but I assume some accounting system installed on multiple client systems are attempting
concurrent access to the same accounting data.

You don't say if this has ever worked before with this setup or if this is the initial install for the Sharing of the accounting data.

First action is to access that file by only one system at a time (ie: disconnect the mapped Drive letter) and get that working.

Hi,

I have a small home office with a laptop, desktop and two printers. Both computers run Windows XP. I have a wireless network with a 2wire router. The laptop has a built in wireless card and the desktop uses a linksys wireless adapter. I have no problem getting the internet on either computer. I would just like to be able to share some folders and the printers from the desktop with the laptop. I can't seem to make the two computers see each other. What steps do I need to take? Thanks!

Right-click anywhere in the bulleted list, point to Convert to SmartArt, and then click the diagram layout that you want to use. If you don’t see your preferred diagram layout, click More SmartArt Graphics to choose a layout from the Choose a SmartArt Graphic dialog box.

Hello, hoping this is the correct location to enter my question (?) :

On a new job here today, small "mom-&-pop" outfit, and they are asking if I know how to set-up two (or maybe three) computers here, so as to be able share Excel documents (MS Office 2007) between the two (or three).

I did a search on this, and google seemed to want to send me to Microsoft for directions (instructions), which I performed, however, seemingly to know avail.

The problem (I think) is that the computers need to first "see" each other (be networked?) before any modification I may make in the settings are going to work in any case (correct?), and though I've done this once or twice on a small home network, it was some years ago, and on my own computers which I was familiar with.

One of the computers here is "hardwired", the others "wireless".

Can anyone here possibly assist me with this please?

Thanks,
Hoister
 

Answer:Connecting (Sharing) Excel Between Office Comnputers

You do not connect or share Excel. You have to basically use a SQL Server & Sharepoint if you want to be able to share the content on a worksheet between multiple people. Otherwise it will be locked when more than one person is in it, and will not update until it unlocks from the first person working in the Spreadsheet.

Otherwise you are better off using Googledocs to do this.

See http://office.microsoft.com/en-us/excel-help/use-a-shared-workbook-to-collaborate-HP010096833.aspx and http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/cc749856.aspx You can go through this search regarding using a SQL server with excel http://search.microsoft.com/en-us/r...s&q=using a sql server with excel spreadsheet

Answer:Cannot Setup Office 2007 Professional

Couple of questions to ask
1. Are you installing as Administrator or an account that has admin rights?
2. Have you uninstalled Office 2003 or are you just doing an upgrade?
3. Do you have antivirus installed (yeah dumb question I guess) If so, have you disabled it before attempting to install?

I'm running out of space on my harddrive (only 1.3 GB left) and the Office Setup Files show to take up a LOT of space when I pull up my disk cleaner. What happens if I delete those setup files? Will my Office suite quit running?

I think deleting the setup files will allow enough space for my defragger to run also--which I'm hoping will speed up my super slow computer...I'd put more space on there, but I'm not sure how to re-allocate space from my Mac Partition to that one, so if someone knows how to do that, that would be pretty cool too.

Thanks!!

P.S. Can someone tell me exactly how much space Windows itself takes up?? And the Office Professional Edition suite?
 

Answer:Can I delete the Office Setup Files?

A bit handy if you leave it there but I believe it is safe deleting them.
Only when you need to install optional components of MS Office later on, you will be prompted for the disks. If you have the MS Office disks , then you should face no problem.

Hi everyone,
Hopefully here I can get some advice on what to do.

My friend has a law firm in a very small office. At any given time there are not more than 4 employees using computers. The office has 5 computers in total I believe, and a server computer.

The server is VERY old and is running some old version of windows server edition. The office is not using a domain.

The computer do not need to access each other, only the server, where all the files for cases are stored.

I am thinking I can simply replace the server computer with a new one and use a regular version of windows and a simple workgroup for this office. Would this be ok?

If I were to do this, would windows XP pro be sufficient for the server, or windows 7?

The client computers will all be using either XP pro or windows 7.

I've also read about the possibility of a linux server. This is fine with me as long as it is very easy to set up, and all the windows computer will be able to access it without a problem. The server is used for nothing but storage of case files which must be accessible by all computers. It is not used for printing or anything else.

Although computer don't need to share files with other computers, they should be able to print from printers attached to other printers.

There is also a BizHub600, and it would be nice to be able to scan documents from that ,directly to computers around the office.

I want to avoid setting up windows server edition because it is very costly. If XP... Read more
