Application Specific Sound Configuration? (Stereo vs Dolby)

Question: Application Specific Sound Configuration? (Stereo vs Dolby)

I purchased a game that has a known sound issue. It only plays all of the sound when using Stereo sound. 5.1 sounds are sadly incomplete. Currently I only know how to change all sound on my system to either be Stereo or 5.1. Is there any way that I can set this one application to use Stereo sound? Perhaps with a third party app?

I just bought an AV receiver wth HDMI specially for watching avi or mkv movies with DTS or Dolby digital with my A200, but I cannot seem to get the DTS or DD sound through the HDMI, only stereo. The AV receiver should display DTS or DD symbol if the source has it, but I can't get it to work. I only get stereo sound through HDMI, but no DTS or DD.

Can anyone help? Please note that I have already set the HDMI as the default playback device.

Answer:Satellite A200 - No DTS or Dolby Digital through HDMI, only stereo

What you can try is to check supported encoded formats.
Start > Control Panel > Sound > Playback > if there is ?Digital output Device (HDMI)? listed click on it with right mouse button and choose option properties. Go to ?Supported Formats? tab and check ?Encoded Formats? there.

I think by default all formats should be enabled.

Hey all, I have to make note of this strange issue I had with the sound on my system.  I've read other posts with people losing the sound from their speakers or all together.  Well, I had something like this, but not a total loss of sound. I noticed it at first when playing videos that sometimes the sound would change phasing as it it went from robust stereo sound to weak mono sound and then switch back occasionally.  Then after a while the sound started to get worse until all I heard was the mono sound.  It got especially bad after playing video games. I immediately dug into my sound properties and went to "Control Panel > Hardware and Sound" and chose "Sound", then under the "Playback" tab I selected "Speakers" and chose the "Configure" button.  It was set to "Stereo" (the obvious and only option).  When I hit "Test" the sound that played started off fine in one speaker and then played in both speakers, or it always played in both speakers or it didn't play hardly at all.  I thought it odd especially since it was previewing left and right speakers that it would not play sound out of the left side or right side or would play in both speakers. I cancelled out of that and then pressed the "Properties" button, went to "Enhancements" and checked the box labelled "Disable all enhancements".  I went back and tested the stereo sound and it worked perfectly.  Crisp, clear and robust.  I had to restart the video game I wa...

Hello Everyone,
What I want to accomplish is to run the program "InstallShield" only with a specified user.
So Basically DENY TO EVERYONE (admins, users, ... ) and ALLOW to the specified user.
I've tryied to create a Deny rule to everyone and an allow to specified user rule but isn't working.
Pheraps it checks the deny rule first and if it's true it stop checking.
Is there a way to allow only my SA user to be able to run Installshield and to deny access to the app to everyone else?

Answer:how to apply a specific sound to a specific action

Heh. I did that quite a few years ago with Win95.
First off, you'll need to convert that mp3 to a .wav file. Audacity can do it in seconds.
Put your .wav file in C: -> Windows -> Media
Then go to your Control Panel, select Sound, then click the Sounds tab.
Scroll down to Windows Explorer in the window you see, and click on Empty Recycle Bin.
The dropdown box below will turn from grey to white. In that dropdown window, choose the name of the .wav file, in this instance, perhaps "Toilet".
Click "Apply". Save your new sound scheme if you wish with a new name.
Every time you empty the Recycle Bin, you'll hear your flush.

Yesterday I attempted to build a £600 PC at home with parts I bought from Amazon. Here are the specs:
GPU - EVGA GeForce GTX 960 SSC 4GB
CPU - Intel Core i5 processor (previous model)
PSU - EVGA 600W
Cooler - CoolerMaster Hyper 212X
Mobo - ASRock micro ATX, LGA1150 Socket, Intel B85 Express
RAM - Corsair Vengeance 8GB (2*4GB) DDR3 1600Mhz

Now, when I plug everything in and power it up, everything seems to work perfectly except my monitor gets no signal. The mouse and keyboard do though.
I've spent hours reseating RAM sticks, resetting the CMOS battery, pretty much any solution I could find on the web. Out of the many times that I tried powering it up to test if it was working, it worked 3 times. Each of the times that the monitor received a signal was when my GPU was seated in the motherboard but not plugged into the power supply. With the exact same configuration that made it work, I shutdown and turn it on again to see no signal.
The conclusion I found was it only seemed to work on the first time after reseating and replugging everything in and while the GPU was unplugged from the PSU.
On the third time the monitor received signal, I took the opportunity to install windows, which in the process, made the system restart many multiple times with no problem at all. When I arrive at my desktop, I restart the PC manually, and it's fine. However, when I manually shutdown the PC, the monitor receives no signal once again when turning it back on.

was quite big, as they were zooming the entire screen (and I couldn't see the entire window

or I had to specify which coordinates on the screen to zoom (how annoying can that be ?!?).

You can adjust the magnification from 100% to over 1000% but not much else.

In Win XP, is there a way to force an application to use a specific connection while everything else uses a different connection? Here’s what I’d like to be able to do:

I connect from home to work via Verizon Broadband and Nortel VPN to access a secure LAN with shared drives and services, including intranet applications. This is already in place and working fine. The work LAN firewall is configured to block all Internet browsing attempts for all devices connected via VPN – not necessarily for security reasons, but rather to conserve bandwidth. The VPN switch and firewall share the same router and broadband connection, so incoming Internet requests from home through the VPN would go back out of the firewall – effectively doubling the required bandwidth for each request.

This configuration renders embedded Internet links in email and various documents almost useless. There are two choices at present to affect a workaround.

One is to drop the VPN connection when Internet browsing is required; browse to the Internet; and then reestablish the VPN connection after the Internet browsing is complete. This is cumbersome and inefficient at best, but it does work.

The second is to configure the VPN client to use split tunneling. This works too, but puts additional load on the Verizon Broadband connection between home and office (already the slowest link in the path). Also, this option meets with resistance from our network folks for reasons I won’t go into here.

What I’d li... Read more

Answer:Can I force an application to use a specific network in XP?

The whole point of the VPN is to insure a secure channel into the remote computer. You drill a hole a truck could drive through if you actually allow Internet connections while the VPN is connected!

The ability to have multiple connections is normally configured by the VPN host, and I suspect your company would take a really dim view of you compromising their network for your convenience.

So far, I have tried to use ForceBindIP to bind the applications and use Route command to route the traffic.. but will no success.

Can someone please provide me detailed steps to go about this?

Any help you can provide will be appreciated.


Hi and welcome to Seven Forums.

I do not think this is possible to do I would think they would interfere with each other.

EDIT: The only way to do this would be to have them connecting to different networks (eg. 192.168.1.1 for wired - then 192.168.2.1 for wireless)

Hi,

I have been OK with Windows XP on my old P4 PCs 2GB RAM (standalone No Internet) that I use for basic word processing and Photo Editing (mainly with FastStone Image Viewer FastStone Image Viewer - Powerful and Intuitive Photo Viewer, Editor and Batch Converter), but would like to upgrade to Windows 10 for more software options.
Am starting to do my homework and just read "Windows 10: Which version of Windows is best for my old Dell Latitude D620 laptop" https://www.tenforums.com/general-support/78010-version-windows-best-my-old-dell-latitude-d620-laptop-2.html
I was encouraged when read Fafhrd 's PC system specs and noticed "CPU: Intel socket 775 Pentium 4 540 HT 3200 Prescott " which is similar to mine.
For Windows XP I have found "Mini WinXP" that comes with Hiren's 15.2 Hiren's BootCD Fan & Discussion Platform on a bootable USB drive to be the fastest for many things.
Does anyone know if there is anything similar for Windows 10?
If not any suggestions for reducing Windows 10?
Thanks

I have a command line utility for some purpose. I start this utility from a COM DLL using ShellExecuteEx function. When calling ShellExecuteEx, i specify the lpVerb parameter as "runas" so that the utility is started elevated. I call
the COM Interface function from an exe client on its startup. So when i start the client exe, the utility is also started. My problem is that since the utility is started elevated, it always asks for the UAC confirmation prompt. I can't stand this because
there will be no manual intervention during this process. So I need the utility to be started without showing the UAC prompt, but still elevated when i start the client exe. Is there any way to achieve this? I would prefer some changes done within the utility
itself like changing the manifest file rather than some system settings changes. Any help will be appreciated..

Question: stereo sound

Hi. I was wondeirng if anyone knew how to play music FROM my computer using my speakers from my stereo system.

the radio stations here in the dessert in california totally suck! i would really like to be able to play the internet radio stations in my stereo system. does anyone have any ideas? all i have is a built in sound card in my computer. crystal sound fusion or something like that. (you can see my sig for details)

my newer computer might be able to handle more as it has better sound and speakers but i don't know exactly what it has. its an emachines 2240 i think. (in case someone knows their emachiens really well that might be useful lol)

my stereo system is an old techniques but still kicks really good sound with the two big speakers. please let me know if this is at all possible and what you think i need. i imagine i would have to invest in a pci sound card i suppose. if so let me know. but if there IS a way to use my built in one, that'd be better i think.

let me know.

I noticed today when trying to make some settings changes to my speaker properties that my sound is in mono, not stereo. I vaguely remember making a change a while back, but whatever I changed, I don't recall. I tried everywhere i could look to see if I could determine why the speakers were mono but nothing was evident. This is a systemwide thing, not just an app or two.

Any suggestions?

Question: No sound in stereo

Hello,
I have installed Windows 7 to several PCs and this is the first time encounter a problem of this kind. The config is:

AMD X2 4200+
2GB ram
MSI K8N Neo4 Platinum rev1.0 with ALC850
etc.

As the title says in stereo there is no sound to the line out jack. I tried several different drivers from Realtek, the ones from windows update and even 1 from Nvidia and it's always the same thing. The weird thing is if i switch to 4 speakers, 5.1 etc all of them have sound except of the front speakers. The board is not the problem since it worked fine on Windows XP. Anyone has any idea other than going back to XP? Maybe there is a way to change front and back speaker's jacks or some other way to make the back speakers act as front?

Thank you

Answer:No sound in stereo

Did you installed latest realtek drivers?

This is a question concerning anonymity and maintaining privacy. I can use a proxy server, http or socks, and that shows I am connecting from another address than my home IP. However, some sites also track things like browser language and time zone. Language I can simply change by using an English version of my browser rather than a Swedish one, but what about the time zone? Even if I connect through say a US proxy, it will show my time zone as central European.

The question: Is there any way to either prevent the time zone from being detected through the web, or change the time zone which is displayed? I know I can of course just change the time zone of my system but I'd rather not as it will mess up logs and such. If there is another way of doing it, either with what utilities are in place or by additional software, I'd love to hear about it.

Thanks in advance.

I have tried several personal firewalls and have yet to find one of the free ones that will allow you to set firewall rules that allow only a specific ip or ip's to connect to a specific application. Most only have a trusted ip list.

Online Armor has this functionality but not for the free version.

I dont recall whether comodo has this ability but I did not like that comodo would have several outbound connections even when I did not have anything that should be connected out to the internet (something to do with cloud?).

Answer:Firewall that blocks application connect to specific ip?

It seems that the Windows' built-in firewall might be able to do what you're after by creating a new custom rule.

I have a laptop on my desk just for testing external access issues to our sites. I'd rather not.

I know it's been asked.. I think I've read over 20 posts on it with no clear and simple solution.

On my windows7 x64 station I have a hard wired LAN Network Connection and a USB wireless network conection. If both are up, IE uses the wired Lan connection. If I disable that LAN connection, IE uses the wireless. Great.. but?

What If I want to have both up? Reading emails and and accessing other intranet resources normally, but surfing via the wireless. Or even better, surfing from a specific browser or instance of a browser through the wireless Connection, and all others using activity through the wired Lan connection?

I'd like to do this without a Proxy or a VM. I understand there is a product called ForceBindIP that sounded very promising, but it does not support Windows 7 yet.

Is there maybe a firewall setting to route port 80 and 443 traffic to a specific Lan connetion? How about tweaking setting of the wired lan connection so that it fails to find DNS servers or anything on the outside?

I'm somewhat surprised this is not a setting somewhere already. I see great value having this.

I have an IR receiver constantly attached to my computer. One program I use always registers it as a game controller, and stops me from using my actual game controllers in favor of it. Is it possible to automate disabling the IR receiver while the program runs, and re-enabling it after the application closes?

Answer:Is it possible to disable a device while a specific application runs?

Hi, if you know or can find a command to disable it, you can write a simple Autohotkey script- for example, a loop that periodically tests to see if your game is running, and if so, disable the device.

(Autohotkey is free and well supported- it can be programmed to test for the presence of a particular process in 1 line).

Probably 5 lines would suffice.

It comes with a comprehensive help file, detailing each command with examples.

Or you could create a shortcut to a script that
a. launches the game
and
b. disables the device and exits when you choose.

hi
there is an application that communicates with remote server. it connects to the server and the user selects the records/files (txt or tif files) it then starts downloading them.

the issue with it is that this application works from home or non company internet. but it doesnt works on company network.

i want to investigate whats stoping it.

it can successfully login to the server and shows the files needed to be downloaded. and it sometimes does starts downloading . but it fails midway through files.

we are behind a tmg.

and tmg client is working but no success with it.

so i want some application to be installed on that particular pc on which the application is not working .(again it works if non company internet is used). that should just monitor the packets sent and received by that application..

wireshark is too complicated.. and displays all packets flying by.

how can i corelate the packets shown in wire shark to that specific program ?

any other alternative ?

or how to tackle the issue with this particular app? that is what i want to solve.

update:
that application uses http to download data .

Answer:monitor the traffice sent and received by one specific application

Start with Process Monitor. It will not show you the packets, but it might provide a clue.

My PC arrived in March 2001 complete with Creative 4.1 surround sound speakers, a Pioneer DVD player and a copy of PowerDVD 3.0. I never played any DVDs and just used the drive, after installing Nero UDF Reader, as an adjunct to my CDRW drive, with Nero InCD installed.

After reinstalling Windows some time ago after creating a partition I never got round to reinstalling PowerDVD, but today I did so and expected to hear wonderful surround sounds from a DVD of the 1984 film Paris, Texas that was included with my daily newspaper. Whether the DVD boasts a surround sound soundtrack or not I don't know (and is not mentioned on the disk or envelope), but although the rear speakers are outputting sound it appears to be the same as the front ones!

Exploring the PowerDVD config menu for audio I noticed a panel, greyed out and the check box also, which read Use Dolby Pro Logic Decoder for 4/6 speakers. There is a check mark against Stereo output, but of course I cannot access the greyed out box. Does PowerDVD recognise if a disk has a surround sound audio track, and if not automaticallly go to stereo?

So, what am I supposed to do to access a Dolby Decoder? - it didn't come with Windows (ME) and apparently not with PowerDVD or the Creative software.

The DVD plays well in Stereo but it seems a waste having the other two speakers, which according to the Creative software are working normally, as in Left front, Left back etc.

Can anyone guide me on this please?

I have a Y530 and the Dolby sound was always louder through the right side. Not balanced at all. I made sure all the settings were correct but no matter what, it favors the right side. I went to Lenovo's site and downloaded a new driver that was dated newer than what I had but that not only didn't fix the problem it eliminated the Dolby system altogether. Now the inductive touch panel does nothing when I push the buttons for the sound settings. It's as if that driver removed the Dolby system. I'm still under warranty with this thing but I thought I'd try to get it resolved here before calling. I've yet to hear the "subwoofer" that is built in. What I get now is sound only from the two outer speakers and it's not very loud at all. Any advice would be great. Thanks. R

Hello All,

I recently bought a cheap Aureal A3D 4 Channel Card and a relatively cheap 5.1 speaker setup. The Speakers are Logitech and have the capability for a 6 channel setup, however there is a matrix button that when you press it, your supposed to get the 6 channel effect on only 4 channel cards.

So I have it all set up like that. But I don't have a DVD Player on my computer. when I try to play games I can only get stereo sound, I was wondering what exactly i need to do in order to get the full Dolby sound. Do I need a DVD Player? Is it only capable with certain games? And How can I just TEST to see if it works properly?

Thanks for helping a newbie out!

Answer:Stereo Mix Not Picking Up Sound

I do a moderate bit of sound recording from time to time and 'Stereo Mix' isn't always the best choice. Try either 'Wave' or 'Line-in' as an alternative. It can be very annoying - hearing the audio coming across your speakers and the level meters in your recording software showing nothing.

I'm having the exact same issue as this post, which was not solved...

i got a another problem with stereo mix. (win7)

Bascially, if I try to record through stereo mix (for podcasts or live recording over the internet) There is a horrible white noise, pulsating, echoing sound that gets louder and louder and doesn't stop. Stereo mix is set to default device, obviously, and my speakers are the default playback device, everything else is disabled.

It did not use to do this, so i'm not sure what is causing it.

I checked all the properties and its all at default settings. If I check listen to device and hit apply, I can hear the sound that keeps pulsating/echoing faster and faster until I uncheck it and it apply again. (I only checked it to see if the sound would play which it does).

I have looked all over the internet to try and solve this issue and have not gotten one step closer to solving this. Hopefully someone here can figure this out!

My goal is to record music while people watch what I am doing on my desktop. They do not have an audio feed coming to me so that is not the problem, I am the sole broadcaster.

Thank you in advanced! I eagerly await someones response.

What you've described is "Feedback".
Let's not change too many things at once.

Things to check:

Single left click on the Stereo Mix icon then select "Properties".
Go to the Listen Tab.

Uncheck "Listen to This Device". (if it is checked) Reboot, test record.

If not that-

Same procedure as above but select the "levels" tab.
Reduce the record level to 15, reboot, test record.

If none of that works go to Playback Devices and select Speakers, then properties, go to the Enhancements tab and disable ALL effects.

You could also be getting feedback from the Realtek "Environments"
This is basically a hardware/software Reverb system to simulate "space". It can feedback upon itself if the levels are too high.

I just got the headset an hour ago, and have just started looking around to see if I can figure it out. Any help would be appreciated.

Thanks

Answer:USB head set, but use stereo for sound?

Hey, guess I should've played around a little more before asking. I figured it out.

I am trying too record sound from my computer of a conversation for archiving purposes, I was told that using the Stereo Mix option combined with Audacity would work great. However, when I check for disabled devices in my recording devices, I am seeing no Stereo Mis option.
Any idea?

I am trying to record something that is playing through my speakers, but it just records nothing, only short static noises every couple of seconds...
My system is XP SP3, Intel M/B (probably D915GAV but I'm not sure) with integrated sound chip (ALC860) and the whole driver issue seems to be messed up. When I originally got the computer it had 4 sound drivers already installed: 2 Realtek (97&HD), one KB888111 and one standard driver (SoundMax IIRC that came with the M/B CD). I already uninstalled everything except for Realtek HD Audio and KB888111 (Otherwise the PC will lose sound).

Two issues:
1. Although I see 2 sound drivers installed in Add/Remove Programs ("Realtek High Definition Audio Driver" and "High Definition Audio Driver Package - KB888111"), in Device Manager this is what I see:
http://i57.tinypic.com/2dh89r5.jpg
2. I cannot uninstall the current Realtek HD driver (R1.25). It gives me a weird error message upon the start:
http://i59.tinypic.com/fm6phx.png

My questions:
1. What is the correct driver that I should use in order to have sound and have the ability to record from 'Stereo Mix' successfully, that fits my integrated Motherboard or ALC860 chip?
2. How can I get rid of that faulty Realtek driver?
3. Do I really need that Microsoft UAA audio driver? (I mean, right now it is the only option to have working sounds on my PC, but not recording)

Please, this has been frustrating me forever :cry

Answer:Can't record sound through 'Stereo Mix'

You need to install the driver for the onboard audio from the motherboard support CD. Download and install Speccy. It's free and recommended by MajorGeeks. Click audio and you'll see the onboard audio device. Tell us or take a snapshot and post it.

Answer:Stereo Mix not streaming sound

Please fill out the My System Specs. We are just shooting in the dark without that.

Also, to clarify, are you trying to record straming audio from the internet or are you trying to send audio to the internet?

I think the title is kind of self-explanatory.. stereo mix seems to be unaware of it when I am playing sound on my computer. Could explain more but here's a video instead:

(Tried to embed it with the little YouTube icon but it got filtered out for whatever reason.)

This is especially bizarre because just a few days ago, I used Stereo Mix to record something playing on my computer and it worked perfectly. But then I tried today and suddenly it's.. not. Anyone have any solutions? If you need any more info on my computer then let me know.

Answer:Stereo Mix Not Detecting Sound

Two suggestions.

1. Go to the Device Manager, RIGHT click on the entry for the RealTek and then LEFT click "Uninstall". DO NOT uninstall the drivers. Restart the PC and when Windows starts it will detect and reinstall the sound. If there were any Windows corruptions this will (usually) fix it.

2. Another option is to try the System Restore back to an available restore date that is when the sound worked correctly.

Hi, Im having problems getting the sound to play on both of my speakers. I am hooked up to a reciever via a 3.5mm to RCA cable. ive tried plugging the RCA end of the cable into several ports in the back of the reciever, although Im only familiar with that being a problem when plugging into a phono port.
does anyone know if there is a setting within windows that i havent found that allows me to switch between stereo and mono?
Or do i need a different cable?
I had it plugged into an old sony stereo and i could get sound from both speakers, but only when turning the surround up. the surround sound knob acted as a volume control for only one speaker, with the master volume knob controlling both speakers.
weird huh?
not sure if this is a windows 7 problem or a hardware incompatibility issue.

Answer:Sound Problems- Stereo

the speaker just need a good old fashioned whoopin. a couple slaps on the top and sides and it works...

so i have two sound cards installed, one is my onboard card and the other is my installed PCI sound card

On-board:
Newegg.com - ASUS M4A79XTD EVO AM3 AMD 790X ATX AMD Motherboard

PCI:
Newegg.com - Creative Sound Blaster Audigy SE 7.1 Channels 24-bit 96KHz PCI Interface Sound Card - Sound Cards

i want to be able to listen to music through my sound blaster card and use the stereo mix from my onboard to record what i hear. any way to either link them to make this possible, or have sound go through both without having to plug in speakers into my onboard?

the stereo mix works fine with my onboard, the problem is that it requires speakers pluged in to work. any way to bypass this?

Answer:two sound cards/stereo mix

If you want to record "what you hear" (what is playing on the PC's speakers) you don't need the on-board sound. SoundBlaster has the "what you hear" option (what SoundBlaster calls the System Mixer).

You can only have one default audio device for any function. Dual sound cards will not work for all functions. Actually, you should be able to do everything with the SoundBlaster and disable the Integrated audio in the BIOS so it doesn't conflict with the SoundBlaster.

Hello there,

I have been banging my head against the wall for a couple days here. I've been trying to enable recording and streaming audio through the Stereo Mix device but it doesn't seem to be picking up any sound. I have tried reinstalling drivers, enabling and disabling different audio devices but nothing seems to have any effect.

I have read a lot of posts on different forums but most of them are about stereo mix device missing. Thats not the case here since it definitely is showing up and is enabled.

Also pics of Recording tab and VIA control panel.

I have a network with a windows 2008 domain controller and exchange 2010 server with a windows 7 developer [W7DEV] desktop each with static IP assigned. My domain is connected to Comcast and is assigned a static IP. Recently, my W7DEV NIC was updated with the DNS1 and DNS2 from Comcast that causes my Outlook to fail to connect to my exchange server. Looking at ipconfig /displaydns shows the exchange server with the Comcast IP instead of my local network server IP. I removed the Comcast DNS IP addresses, but when I close the dialog, it reverts back to displaying the Comcast DNS1 and DNS2. I see in the registry that the IP addresses are listed for the NIC, and deleting them doesn't remove them.

I recently installed iTunes to view a video, and thought it might be the problem, so I uninstalled it without any resolution. I checked for restore points, but the only ones showing are related to software upgrades.

How can I determine from the registry which applications are controlling the assignment of IP addresses to the NIC in W7DEV? Since this problem happened suddenly, I suspect a virus or other intrusion, but I do have Microsoft Threat Management Gateway installed separating my network from Comcast, and I do have Microsoft essentials, AVG 2013 and WiseFixer on W7DEV.

Any assistance will be appreciated. Thank you.

Answer:Application autosetting DNS IP in NIC configuration

Hey, after recently doing a cleanup on my machine (Windows XP Home SP2 - I ran chkdsk /f; compact /s; defrag c: -f; and cleanmgr) I have been receiving messages such as the following when trying to open MSN or Network Magic:
C:\Program Files\MSN Messenger\msnmsgr.exe
This application has failed to start because the application configuration is incorrect. Reinstalling the application may fix this problem.

I tried uninstalling then reinstalling MSN, but this didn't fix the problem at all. I have ran 2 reg cleaning programs; RegSeeker and TuneUp - neither of which fixed the issue. I then uninstalled Java and reinstalled that again (I read somewhere that someone did this to resolve the issue with MSN) - however that also did not work.

I was hoping someone else would have some solutions which I could try to fix this error! Thanks in advance,

For some reason , all of a sudden a bunch of applications won't start!! All i get when i try to open them is

" This Application has failed to start because the Application Configuration is Inncorrect.Reinstalling the application may fix this problem "

Thanx for any help

Answer:Application Configuration Inncorrect

Hello M.sonda, Welcome to TSF!

Before we look at any other possibilities that my be causing this problem, please try this workaround...

You will need your Windows? XP SP2 CD.

(In the event that you do not have a Windows? XP CD with SP2, you will need to 'borrow' one from a friend or colleague, as the manufacturer's "Recovery Discs" will not work in this instance.)

Insert the Windows? XP CD in your drive. (Hold down the Shift Key to prevent it from starting.)

Go Start > Run ...in the box type in sfc /scannow ?please take note of the space between the sfc and the /.

This is the System File Checker...it will scan all the Windows? core system files to ensure that they are in their respective correct places, and if not replace them from the CD.

During the scan you may be asked to Insert the CD, if this happens just go retry and let it do its thing.

One important point: While sfc is running, it is not advisable to do any other work, or have any browsers/programs running on the computer, until the scan is complete. (This process will generally take around 45-65 minutes to complete).

Once finished, remove the CD and reboot your machine...all should be "Normal" (hopefully).

Please post back with the result, or if there are any further queries/concerns.

Kind Regards,

Hey there,

I'm on windows XP

when it comes to installing many new applications (not pirated or anything) I get this error

"C:\filelocation\program.exe

This application has failed to start because the application configuration is incorrect. Reinstalling the application may fix this problem."

It has happened both for the new MSN (Im stuck using windows messenger) and Ableton Live 8.03

I've obviously tried reinstalling a whole bunch of times, but no luck. Is my only option here reformat, could it be something viral? Or something more simple (i hope!)

Cheers and thanks a lot

Hello,
I have several versions of an application (Adobe After Effects) installed (I help test out prerelease versions of the software - which is nice) and I'd like to be able to set the precise application / file type association.

If I get a file's properties and 'Change...' the 'Opens with:' and browse to the exact application I want it to open with (After Effects version 13.6x123), then Apply/OK it, when I open the file, it just loads up the oldest version of the app (After Effects version 13.2) that Windows can find. Is there a better way to set filetype associations than the broken method that Windows is clearly attempting to use?

I have four versions of this app currently installed, all in C:\Program Files\Adobe. 90% of the time, I want to use the latest version, but occasionally need to use an older (public release) version to check how certain bugs/behaviours have changed, so need to keep all those versions installed.

I can use the workaround of opening the specific app and File > opening the file from within it, but it would be nice if I could get Windows to behave properly. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated!

Greetings everyone.  I've been dealing with this annoyance for two years.  I've been in contact with the support staff for the application, and have tried everything suggested, but the issue still stands.
 
The application is League of Legends.  The issue is when the game tries to launch lolclient.exe, I get this error: "Unable to connect to the server.  If you have a firewall, it may be blocking the connection.  Please refer to your firewall's documentation.  Would you like to retry the connection?"  
 
If I click "Retry," I'm stuck on a black screen for ~30 seconds and then it loads successfully.  Sometimes it waits for ~30 seconds, prompts the error again, and then it's successful.  It always eventually succeeds, but it takes a while to get there.  Besides using a VPN and replacing hardware, I've tried literally everything suggested by the community and the staff.  All necessary ports are forwarded and confirmed as open.  I do not experience any persistent network issues besides this one. 
 
I know that it's not actually related to my firewall for two reasons: 1. it happens on ANY computer on the network, regardless of software.  If I use the computer on another network, it connects immediately, and 2. I've completely uninstalled my firewall software, disabled Windows Defender, and ensured that all firewall-related services were stopped.  The router's internal firewall is disabled. &#... Read more

In Windows 7, the input method is application-specific, i.e., when you change the input method in one application, it doesn't affect other applications. However, in Windows 8 this seems to be changed: the input method is system-wide.

The problem is: I need to use Chinese input (either the embedded Windows Chinese input, or the one from Google, I prefer to use the later), which seems to only use US keyboard layout. However, I am using Finnish layout, so the locations of symbol keys are different. I need to frequently switch the input methods, which is really annoying. I really miss the one in Windows 7: the Chinese input was only effective for the application I needed to type Chinese

As the title indicates, I'd like to restrict the amount of bandwidth or internet access speed of a specific application on my PC. Preferably during certain times only, but even a way to enable and disable this rule as I need would be fine.

I have a 1Mb ADSL with a measly 3GB monthly cap (it's painful, can't afford more at the moment though), and Steam turns out to be the nastiest, bloated, deceptive, sneaky, bandwidth-whor........<a while later>........ piece of software ever released to the world at large.

So, I keep setting all my games to "Do not update automatically" (which needs to be re-set after each time a game is run), and it supposedly doesn't download updates or patches while a game is being played... Despite this, if I decide to play Borderlands, after launching the game I have to alt-tab into Windows, go to Steam, and pause the next "Suspended" 250MB or 300MB update that it's busy downloading... I may have a slow connection by most of your standards, but at a pretty constant 100KB/s, 3GB isn't exactly going to last me that long.

Now, I do have a service from my ISP that gives me 5 times my download cap between 1am and 5am (more info, if you like).. So I can get a theoretical 15GB a month if I play my cards right. Is there any firewall out there that will allow me to limit the access speed of Steam to 5KB/s or 10KB/s during specific times...?

Hello Mialbedwy, and welcome to Seven Forums.

You could use the same method of pinning the Recycle Bin to the taskbar in a folder as a toolbar, but use the application you want instead of the Recycle Bin. This will give it a wider space.

Hello,

I am writing this because I am seeking help with an Email related issue.

I am trying to use a program that retrieves Inbound Email attachments and resends them to a new destination… it is a dispatch program.

The Help Files associated with this program make reference to “The Attachment Folder” from “My Email Program”.

I am currently using Microsoft Outlook 2000 as my Email program although… I also have Outlook Express as an optional email program that I could use.

I would prefer to stay with Outlook 2000 though…
“if possible”.

I am enclosing an excerpt from the “Help” File associated with this program so you can see their exact reference to an “Attachment Folder from my Email Program”.

I have tried contacting The Program Manufacturers Tech. Support but as yet have not heard back from them.

I am looking for any advice or direction to be able to Locate and Identify this “Attachments Folder” in “my Email Program” that they make reference to.

If you can assist or advise me in any way I would appreciate it very much, as I am completely lost as to what to do next.

My Operating System is Windows 98SE.
