Newly Rebooted Machine, can't access MS Onedrive on my machine.

Question: Newly Rebooted Machine, can't access MS Onedrive on my machine.

Hey Everyone,

Today, I rebooted my machine and did a clean install of Windows 10 Pro. I installed all my apps etc and then tried to access onedrive and it gave me a sign in screen. I put in my correct information and it won't let me sign in at all. It gets stuck saying signing in. Any ideas?

Thank you very much!

Preferred Solution: Newly Rebooted Machine, can't access MS Onedrive on my machine.

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.)

My speakers were a little staticy, so I did reboot just to make sure it wasn't a static build-up or anything. Upon rebooting I got the "Boot Disk not Found..." error.

The bios sees the drive, and if I put the Windows 7 disc in and select the "install drivers" option, I can browse the drives and it sees the windows folder on the drive. However, if I try to do the startup repair, it does not see a windows file. Also, the Windows installer sees the drive under custom install options.

I'm at a loss. Any ideas would be much appreciated!

Answer:Rebooted machine...boot disk not found :(

I would run a chkdsk on the drive, use the command prompt from the Vista recovery environment.

Win 10 machine has fileshare being accessed by XP and MAC machines without problems.
Trying to connect a Win 7 machine but it insists that the login does not have access to the share.
The login and password are valid. The share and security is open to everyone. All machines are in the same workgroup.
The win 7 machine can see other machines on the net and the Win10 machine can see into shares on the Win 7 box.

So it is just the win7 => win10 that is the problem.

Considering a new Lenovo Yogo laptop. Here is my question.
*I have a HP desktop with Windows 7. The Lenovo would replace it. I have Picasa on it (for photos, from Google)?as well as Google Drive, and OneDrive, and Dropbox.

*Picasa displays all the various folders I have in MY PICTURES. They are all synched to go to Picasaweb online.
*Google Drive, OneDrive, and Dropbox display all the folders you?ve put inside them, and they?re all online at their respective websites. Easy, we know all this.
Here?s where I have a query.
If I get the new laptop?what happens if I install those programs (GD, OD, DB, PW) on my new laptop? Once I install and sign in, will all the files in their current online location begin downloading to their new home on the Lenovo? (Instead of where they used to live on my HP.)
Or do I need to wipe out everything online and start over? Which would be?difficult.
Or?do I NOT install any of those programs, and just access stuff from/upload to/ the current online sites?
Make sense?

I just built Eeyore.

Eeyore's basic specs:

Socket AM2 kit features the
NF-M2SV GeForce 6100 motherboard
AMD Athlon 64X2 2.3GHZ (Brisbane) dual-core CPU with a 1MB cache and 1000MHz (2000 MT/s) FSB.
Seagate 250GB 7200 RPM SATA HDD with a 8MB buffer and NCQ,
2GB of Crucial PC4200 DDR2 533MHz memory (2 x 1024MB),
PowerUp Silver 5511 Mid-Tower case with a 450-watt power supply.


I hooked everything up, got all excited, giggled like a little school girl.
went to turn him on..


nothing


I tested the power supply, i took it outof the case (an atx 450 watt btw) and put 2 safety pins in the 14 th hole and a ground hole. plugged it into a wall, and the fan started on it immediately.

I took that as proof that the psu was good. since that is the most action i had seen from it.

I have tried almost every outlet in my apartment. with no luck. i even tried down in the basement.. now, when i plugged it into 1 of my surge protectors, the surge light immediately came on, faint at first then real bright.


my Question is this.

Could this be attempting to draw too much power from the house?
My apartment has had problems with the breaker tripping when like my roommates little heater was going, along with the microwave, and my other pc "Tigger".


I do have to take Eeyore to work an plug him in there to see if he gets anything.


Thank you for listening.
 

Answer:No power to a newly built machine

We have all had a problem like this. It is likely that you have installed something incorrection, or unseated something while working on another component.
Then nearly 15% of all new builds have a problem with hardware
Can you try a borrowed power supply. Alternately, obtain a power supply tester... they Run $10 to $25, and will be invaluable for years.
Otherwise, you need to go back to the most simple, fundamental configuration such as a floppy drive and boot disk... and other such changes...
Do you have lights on the board? Have you tried another power socket. And the old standby, "Is it really plugged in?"

Answer:Newly built machine won't boot, need advice

start over building to find the problem. place the motherboard on the cardboard box it came in on a table, not on carpet.I find it easiest to set the case next to it, to hook the start buttons just place the CPU its heat sink, one module of mem. the video card, and hook up the monitor. hook up the essential power components, and the start button. then try to get the computer to boot. it should boot to the BIOS. if it does not boot here u're mem. is most likely bad. if it gets to the BIOS, then start adding components, one at a time until u see what is not letting it boot, if u get it built this way and every thing is working, u most likely had it grounded to the case. then u can star over building in the case, but u will not need to take the processor out and the mem.

I just built a new machine a few days ago have been having some problems with it. The main problem is that it seems to, at random, get the BSOD when it's just sitting at the desktop. All parts are brand new straight out of the package and I'm running Windows 7 x64.

Answer:Newly built machine randomly crashing

Hi Kenny; and welcome to the forum I looked at all four of your dumps and they are virtually identical. All of them blame nvlddmkm.sys, you nVidia video driver. This driver is up to date.





Quote:
Bugcheck D1, DRIVER_IRQL_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL. Usual causes: Device driver.


You are running MSE antivirus and Windows Firewall. Do you have any other third part security program running such as a keylogger, Wi-fi hotspot it banking ID program running? These can sometimes create conflicts.

Are you overclocking your RAM or your video card? If so, please return to default values.

Test your video card with Furmark following the instructions in this tutorial: Video Card - Stress Test with Furmark. Post back with your results.

If you see no problems with Furmark, enable Driver Verifier carefully following the instructions in this tutorial: Driver Verifier - Enable and Disable. If Driver Verifier encounters a faulty driver, it will trigger a BSOD. Upload any and all Driver Verifier enabled dumps.

Hello,

I was out searching the net and noticed you were working with another person that had a similar issue that I am having. Basically I just built my new machine and I am experiencing same issue (Stop 0xA). I following the steps in the other thread and attached the zip file. Here are some specifics of my issue:

- Newly built machine:
- ECS GF7050VT-M motherboard
- 2 gigs of RAM total (2 1 gig sticks of DDR2 PC2-6400 Crucial RAM)
- Intel Core 2 Q6600 Quad 2.4ghz
- Sata DVD/R
- IDE boot drive
- Vista Ultimate SP1

I purchased it at Fry's and they told me I should stick with the 667 memory but they were out, so I went w/the 800 (it is supported, but they were VERY hesistant going with it). Also, I noticed in the motherboard book (after many BSODs) that I should change a memory setting in the BIOS, but this didn't work. Lastly, I rebuilt the machine today and only installed what I felt were critical device drivers (network, video, sound) from the install CD, since the first time it BSOD was when I was using the driver installation disk with the motherboard. Well, I am still having the issue :(.

Fry's now has the slower memory in stock so I am going to swap it out on Tuesday. Also, I ran Microsoft's memory test and all was fine (but I still believe that the slower memory with this board might help).

Let me know what you find with my dump.

THANKS A TON!
Dave

Answer:[SOLVED] Irql_not_less_or_equal - BSOD on newly built machine

Hi. . .

Were you a Boy Scout like I was... you know the be prepared motto and all? !!

Nice job on gathering the files.

I show 2 dumps from today - Sept 7.

I quickly looked at WERCON and found -

Code:
9/7/2008 6:49 PM Application Error Faulting application svchost.exe, version 6.0.6001.18000, time stamp 0x47918b89, faulting module RPCRT4.dll, version 6.0.6001.18000, time stamp 0x4791a751, exception code 0xc0000005, fault offset 0x0003cc1f, process id 0x380, application start time 0x01c91113f6a9a22f.
I see that svchost failed with a 0xc0000005 exception - a memory violation and occurred today - Sept 7 2008 - 1849 hours. The faulting module was rpcrt4.dll a driver for the Remote Procedure Call (RPC) API, used by Windows applications for network and Internet communication. Is this when your system was first turned on?

I can't say that is is a physical memory issue, but it can be of course. A 0xc..5 exception usually indicates that a driver attempted access of a memory address that it should not have. But this is a Microsoft driver in a brand new install, so I doubt highly that this driver is the cause.

I will need to look at the dumps to see what else I can learn.

In the interim, I would like for you to do this -
Run the driver verifier as it may provide additional information in future dump files. Bring up an Elevated command prompt -
START | type cmd.exe | right-click on cmd.exe uptop under programs | Run as Administrator | type verifie... Read more

I installed a new SSD in my X230 and I also just upgraded to win8 (clean install) on the SSD. Overall the system is working very  except I can't get a Lenovo battery meter/gauge in the lower right part of the task bar (only the Microsoft version is displayed). I did go to Lenovo's driver website and downloaded the Lenovo Power Management Device (geku09ww.exe) but that did not resolve the problem. Seems to me that the Power Management device software is not working correctly in the Win 8 environment as I can't seem to find any of its utilities after the install. Any help on how to resolve this?  Thanks,Majesus

I am pretty sure that you have to use the "Flash recovery boot block jumper procedure" in order to enter your model and serial number. Just do a search on that phrase to find out the steps on how to do it.

Last night, I built my first desktop machine. Most of my components were brand new, but I kept my old hard drive.(Which contained my Windows Home Premium 64 bit OS on it.)

When I finally went to power it up for the first time, it booted up normally, and then when it goes to the black screen with the colors swirling together to make the windows logo, right away it quickly flashed to a blue screen and then restarted.

I then went into the repair windows mode, but the automatic repairs failed. They left me with these details:

Problem Signature 01: 6.1.7600.16385
Problem Signature 02: 6.1.7600.16385
Problem Signature 03: unknown
Problem Signature 04: 21200924
Problem Signature 05: Autofailover
Problem Signature 06: 3
Problem Signature 07: No Root Cause
OS Version: 6.1.7600.2.0.0.256.1
Locale ID: 1033

The hard drive with the operating sytem was working fine for me yesterday in my old machine. So I am assuming it has to be a problem with the new hardware, or I failed to connect something, or i need to change a setting.

Any advice would be welcome. This is my first build, so i may have made a rookie mistake.

Answer:Operating System Crashing on Boot Up - Newly built machine

Did you run Sysprep on the drive before removing it from the old computer? Most likely, the drive controllers are different, and that's the issue.

You could go through a bunch of steps to make it work on the new system, but it is always your best bet to do a fresh install. You have all new hardware, meaning all new drivers, etc. In the time it would take you to repair this and hopefully get it booting, you could be done the fresh install...and it will run better as well.

Hi,

I'm sufferring from random reboots on a newly built machine during use. memtest doesnt report any problems. I've used Windows Debuggng tools to 'read' the dump file but it doesnt mean anything to me. Hoping someone on here can read it for me and highlight the cause! Thanks
 

Answer:Random reboots on newly built machine - mini dump attached

Bugcheck 51, Registry Error, this problem is caused by a race condition on the input user-mode buffer for a registry function call.

There are couple of options to consider about correcting this error:

1. Download SP3 and install it, see whether that helps.
2. Do a repair install.

By the way did you rebooted your system without properly shutting down at any time?

Your second minidump points at Mcafee AV software file. I suggest you to uninstall it, use any of the alternative freeware options e.g. Avira or Avast or AVG and see whether that helps. Regards

Hi folks,

got the following weird problem on my network:

I have one Win XP machine and one Win7 machine. They can see and ping each other. However, the Win7 machine is unable to access the XP machine. When i double-click on the machine in Win7, I get an "Windows cannot access \\NOTEBOOK - you do not have permission" error. The other way round, everything works fine - from the XP machine, I can do all the things i want...

Some Information on the XP machine: Win XP SP3 Home, Avast Anti-Virus (as on the Win7 machine), Windows built-in firewall.

Any suggestions?

Answer:Windows 7 machine unable to access Windows XP machine

Try my registry patch and report back.

I have a p2p network with one Win98V1 machine, two Win98V2 machines, a win 2k macnine, and a new winXP one.

One Win98V2 machine supplies Internet Connection Services, and this machine can't see the name of the XP machine in network neighbourhood. The XP machine can see the ICS machine's name, but gives a path not found error if I click on it.

ICS works even to the XP machine, and all computers can ping all others.

If I find the IP address of the XP machine and put that in an LMHOSTS file on the ICS machine, then I can map the XP shares, but the ICS machine still doesn't see the XP machine in network neighbourhood.

Fixed IP addresses break ICS, but don't fix the problem.

Uninstalling ICS didn't help - and of course I had to edit the registry to reinstall it.

What else can I try to make it work?

I have spend the last 10 stupid days, all of which were stupid, trying to analyze what happened.
I thought it was a corrupted windows file. As it turns out, and I have examined my boot log file which I created, this file is a new virus, hxxp://vil.nai.com/vil/content/v_157111.htm
which was detected by Mcafee on 5/20/09. I have just updated my .dat file for my virus scan and I'm now scanning, again..... all 370,000 files on my seagate hard drive. This first time I ran the scan, there were about 24 files which were quaranteened. I'm not sure where they are placed.

My machine will not boot. Here is the boot log from ntbtlog.txt:

Questions:

2. What anti virus are you using? I see you mention McAfee but only in that they detected it (unless you're saying that YOUR McAfee scanner found it).
3. Have you tried booting into safe mode?
4. If its a virus, you know you were infected. Is there a way for you to scan that drive for spyware? (either hook it up in another computer, hook it up as an external drive to another computer, or create a boot disk with spyware scanning on it such as UBCD)

Ok,
Last night I just got my brand new Athlon XP 1500. Anway It's running WindowsXP. I have been trying all morning to connect it to my old laptop (running Windows 98) using Direct Cable Connection. The AthlonXP is the Host and the Laptop is the Guest. I can get both computers connected fine, BUT when I try to get the Laptop to view the AthlonXPs files it asks me for the name of the AthlonXP as well as a password. I type in the name of the PC (there is no password). I try clicking ok, but it tells me the passoword is incorrect. There is no passwords setup on the AthlonXP at all! Please help. Thanks.

I recently got a 1.8GHz Celeron computer from a family member who bought a new computer, but they dropped it while bringing it over. When I started it up, it booted up pretty quickly. But when I'm actually in Windows, it runs as slowly as my old 1GHz machine and sometimes when opening things it has long delays. I thought it might just be Windows being old, so I did a clean install. But that didn't fix it. Now I think it might be one of the hard drives or my cd drives, since at the BIOS diagnostic screen it sometimes hangs at them. Other than scandisk, which didn't return anything, is there a way to find out where the bottleneck is occuring without having to spend money I don't have?

Well, it depends on which OS you have. If it's Vista or XP, then you may want to change the graphics settings so they're lower, because they consume memory.

G'day all! (first post here!! :P)

Ok..so this is my situation:

I have a server...and i have installed a printer to it - the Canon LBP 3200 - the server is a 32bit machine running win7 pro...anyways...this printer does not have ANY 64bit drivers (which my main machine runs win7 ulti x64) so i am unable to install the printer on my main machine...

I was wondering, is there a way to share it from the server to the 64bit machine without installing any drivers?

Or is there a way to install 32bit drivers on a 64bit Machine?

Or can anyone find any 64 bit drivers/custom 64bit drivers?

:S

Thanx all!!

Answer:Sharing a printer from 32bit machine to 64bit machine without drivers.

ok so i tried this method: Go to Control Panel. Choose printer. Then choose Add Printer.

Choose Add a local printer. Click on Create a new port. The default in the drop down box is Local Port. Do not change that. Click Next.

A dialogue box will appear asking for you to enter a port name. Type in the \\computer name\printer name ie. My computer's name is basement and the printer name is EpsonSty so I typed in \\basement\epsonsty

But when i make my own port name it says access is denied... :S

My problem seems to be the opposite of most people's - I added a Windows 7 laptop to my previously all-XP network without any trouble, simply enrolling the new machine in the existing Workgroup, and everything works fine.

Except for just one snag: from my XP machine I can see every single file on the Windows 7 machine, which raises privacy issues even within a family!

How do I stop this happening, and revert back to the situation I had before, where machines on the network could only see each other's shared folders?

Thanks in advance for any help.
 

Answer:How do I stop my XP machine seeing every file on networked Windows 7 machine?

Well, a rough and dirty security fix would be to make sure that "Password Protected Sharing" in the Network and Sharing Center is set to "On." That way the files will be safe but still visible.

Are you logging into w7 with a password?

Create an account below Administrator level with a password and use that.

Theoretically w7 should not allow a drive to be shared, so check all the folders that show the "Share" symbol and set the Share to "Not Shared".

I have a new Gateway Vista 64 machine for my office . The old HP Pavillion Pentium 4 with XP 32(?)is networked in other room Here's my setup:
Ethernet network with a new wireless Netgear router (yes,it has places to plug in the ethernet cords).
-HP Laserjet 1200 printer is plugged directly into the Vista 64 machine.

I can see and share files between the machines just fine but I get an error when choosing the networked printer in "add printer" when setting up XP unit.
(Print sharing is turned on on Vista Machine).

I am trying to help a friend get her new Win-7 machine set up. I used the printer set-up wizard to install a networked printer in the new machine with absolutely no problem. Proved it would print from that machine.

Now, I get a call informing me that her old XP machine, which had been printing to the network printer with no problems, will no longer print. Documents go into the print queue, but they don't get printed. No error messages show up. I did some messing around via remote access, and finally removed the printer with the intention of reinstalling it. Scanning for network printers turned up several redundant instances of the same printer with different names. Some are identified as "invalid" some a "access denied". Bottom line. I can't get any of the selections to install.

On the Win-7 machine I did find a window that indicated that the printer is designated as being shared, but I didn't explicitly set it for sharing when I installed it. Also, I somehow got to a window that told me that for printers that were to be shared with other versions of windows I could optionally install drivers to support such machines. Didn't have the driver disk handy and took the window down. Now I can't even find it again.

I need some help in sorting this all out. Part of the problem is that out there in "network land" there are redundant remnants of previous installations that are being remembered inappropriately. I'd really li... Read more

I recently purchased a Lenovo G580 from Newegg for $449.99 (It's now $499.99). The laptop comes stock with Windows 8 probably with a lot of bloatware. While I don't hate Windows 8 like most people do, many of the applications I need require Windows 7 and hence I need to downgrade. Will this void my warranty (Newegg's or Lenovo's) ? Do I have to wait out that period ? Will I get a Lenovo System Restore DVD's like I got with a HP I owned until recently ? Any insight into this is higly appreciated. Thanks!

Answer:Will installing Windows 7 in a newly bought Windows 8 machine void warranty ?

Hi abhishekk89,Thanks for posting. Downgrading your system does not void your warranty. But however before down grading please do note of the support in which we can provide to you. As the machine come with Win8 preloaded, most of the support provided will be meant for Win8 and only some support of the Win7 can be provided. Before down grading I would advised you to back up everything and make a factory recovery DVD so should anything go wrong you'll be able to set the machine back to factory state by using the DVD. I would also recommend to test the DVD first too to check that the burned image is not corrupted.There is also a recovery partition put in place in your hard drive. Upon installing the WIN7, I storngly advise you not to wipe your recovery partition. You should be able to view all available partions upon installation of the WIN7. But be safe Either make a copy of your windows recovery or you can order them from the Lenovo phone support centre. Charges do apply for the Recovery DVD which will need to be confirmed by the support teams.Hope this helps. regards

Hi,
I've checked here and on a couple of other places; many people seem to have similar problems but not similar enough that I've been able to solve it.

I have a HOME workgroup on my Vista machine that is connected to the printer I want to share. I have made HOME the workgroup on my W7 laptop. The Vista machine is able to access folders on the W7 and the W7 "sees" the Vista machine... the network map on W7 shows a "dotted" line from W7 - Vista but when I try to connect from W7 to Vista it will not accept a logon. I have tried using my normal Vista machine User Name and password and even tried creating a new one just for this connection but Windows Security always says "Logon failure: unknown user name or bad password".

One of the other sites suggested that Client for Microsoft Networks needed to be installed on the W7 laptop but when I checked the properties for the W7 NIC there was no Install option... does W7 need Client for Microsoft Networks?

All settings on the Vista Sharing and Discovery are on.

TIA

Answer:Windows 7 machine cannot connect to Vista machine

I finally figured out that it was Vista machine firewall (AT&T Internet Security Suite by MacAfee) that was blocking the W7 machine from accessing the Vista machine.

After I checked the box in Port and System Services to allow RDP access, I was able to access both the Vista computer and its attached printer from the W7 machine.

On XP I have enabled NetBios over TCP/IP.
File sharing is enabled on both computers.
I think it's something obvious as both instalations on different computers are really fresh and both windows haven't been tampered with.

imediately after clicking on shutdown with an update ready to install, on shutting down, i got the blue screen, machine-check-exception, uncorrectable hardware error, technical information ***stop:0x00000124 (0x00000000, 0x81FD6028, 0xB6200047, 0x0102010A) or***stop:0x0000009C (0x00000003, 0x8196AF0D, 0xB6200007, 0x0002010A

Answer:machine-check-exception on vista 32 machine

It would appear the 0x0000124 is related to the PCI Express Bus, ie Graphics card Driver or Chipset Software, possibly BIOS conflict.Therefore I would update drivers:a) Chipset Softwareb) PCIe Graphics Card Driver if you have a Graphics Card

I have an old computer with 2 drives running on it, the C is a little wonky and only starts with XP cd installed under R support to get a C: in DOS. Can I use a printer cable to hook these 2 machines together to get a few files off the D: drive on the old machine from an XP machine? A network cable does not seem to work, I can't see the old machine in the DOS prompt.
Thanks for any help or pointers, and am not sure which forum was correct for this question.

Answer:[SOLVED] Copying data from one machine to an XP machine

hi shamal,

have you tried BARTPE? create an XP live CD using the bart pe builder and you can boot from CD drive of the machine where your wonky hard drive is. from there you can access your C: drive and copy your files on to another computer on the network or on to a USB device.

Have a crashed Win10 machine. Tried to "reset" it with a downloaded iso, but this didn't work--maybe the iso was NG.
Anyway, now it won't boot at all. This machine was upgraded from Win 8.1 and I have no paid install disk for it.
However, I do know the correct Windows key for the system that crashed. Can I use a paid install disk that I installed on another system, and put in the key code for the crashed system in order to get it back up and running?

Hi,
I am having trouble connecting from an XP (Home) desktop machine to a Win 7 (Home Premium) laptop to share files.
I have read and followed a lot of posts to no avail.
specifically I have followed the advice in "How to make Windows 7 work with older Windows versions for networking and file sharing"

- both machines are in the same workgroup
- there is no trouble going from Win 7 to the XP box
- on win 7 the network is defined as a 'Work' network
- firewalls are disabled on both boxes
- Advanced Network settings
- Network discovery in ON
- File and Printer Sharing is ON
- Public folder sharing is ON
- password protected sharing is OFF
- Allow Windows to manage Homegroup connections
- the shared folder in Win 7 says its shared (its not in the public tree)
- On folder Advanced setting decurity, 'Everyone' has been added 
- On folder Advanced setting sharing it says "People without a user account and password for this computer can access folders shared with everyone"

The XP box is using XP Home which can only use 'Simple File Sharing'.
On the XP box the win7 machine appears in the Network list under the workgroup.
If I click on the machine I get a login prompt!
Attempting to map a drive to the win7 box the same network is shown browsing to the win7 machine does not list any of the shares. (it also does not ask for a login)

Interestingly if I go back to the network and enter the userid / password then I can see the shares... Read more

Answer:XP machine can't see file shares from Win7 machine

I am building a new office machine which I would like to stick windows 7 onto. I also have an old Dell which came with windows XP on it. Can I use the XP key from that in order to use the windows 7 upgrade version?
 

Answer:Upgrade from old Dell XP machine to new Windows 7 Machine

You cannot use the key with the upgrade. You have to actually allow 7 to see the XP installation first. Then you do a custom install (clean). Just finally upgraded myself.
There are soem other work arounds for this. Just google it.

I,m new to this development and deployment and am running into a strange problem. I developed an ACCESS db on a laptop. Everything seems ok, it works. I used the Package Wizard and created an installation package. When I installed it on another machine I am now getting errors in the deployment machine that I do not get in the development machine. I seems to be coding issues. Can't load data into field for example.

Why would I get these on the deployment machine and not the development machine? Am I unaware of some way to test the code in the deployment machine? Otherwise how do I solve the problem if I can't deplicate the error in the development machine where I can stop the code and see the problem. I feel like I am missing some trick or secret.

Thanks
 

Answer:Errors in deployment machine not in development machine

Once it is deployed you need to run the connection command on the client to connect to the back end database. Are you using SQL server or all Access for the back end?

Here's a strange issue--at least I think it's strange. I have an old application that I've had since I had Win XP. I'm not sure but I think I had it even on Win 98. Even though it's an old app I was able to install and run in on Vista and Windows 7. I now have the pre-release Win 8 installed on VMware Player and I was wondering if it would run in Win 8. So I opened Win 8 and put in the CD, clicked on the setup.exe file and it installed--or so it seemed. It always installed a short cut on my desk top before. So I looked and didn't see it. It was supposed to have installed in a particular folder, but I couldn't find it. I then installed it again and chose to put a short cut on the desk top. But, it wasn't there. The bottom line is that even though I had Win 8 open in the guest, I discovered that it actually instaledl on Win 7--on the host machine even though I installed it while the guest machine was open. Has anyone seen anything like that before? I suppose it happened because it was such an old app.

Answer:App installed on host machine while in guest machine

When you put the cd into your drive, it fired the autoplay on your host machine and not within your Windows 8 VM. It installed on your Windows 7 host machine. If you had been in the VM, and launched the setup from within the VM, it would not have installed on your host machine. PERIOD.

I have basically two questions.
1) does anyone know if Aloha Bob's PC Relocator Ultra can work with Vista?

2) Is anyone aware of anyproducts, preferably shareware or freeware that can migrate both data/settings and programs from Win98 to Vista Home Premium?

Thanks

Answer:Moving from a Win98 machine to a Vista Machine

I don't imagine there are any software apps with that feature - any of them new enough to work with Vista would likely not bother with Win98. Data won't be hard to migrate, but I don't imagine Win98 programs would work the same on Vista... You will probably have to reinstall the programs - if they are compatible. (My CD burning software, for example, was compatible with XP but caused the PC to not boot when I tried to install it on Vista) Settings are probably going to be a lot different on Vista vs. Win98...

I have my first windows 7 computer on my home network, and it appears to me I have outgoing networking, but not incoming. On the Windows 7 computer, I can get to the router and the Internet, and can access shared folders on Vista machines on the home network. The computer name "advertising protocol" works as the name of the Windows 7 computer in the "Network" user interface on the Vista machines (the user interface accessed from Network and Sharing Center by 'view computers and devices"), but attempting to access it gets a "cannot access" error, and attmepting to diagnose gets a "cannot find" error. For whatever it is worth, highlighting the icon in the "network" user interface does not show anything for "location".

I am going through this to get shared folders on the Windows 7 computer visible on other computers on the network. Obviously this is not working. Just to recap the configuration:
1) all computers on the network are members of same Workgroup
2) My documents on the Windows 7 computer are shared read-write with everyone
3) advance sharing options show:
Network discovery ON
File and print sharing ON
Public folder sharing ON
128 bit encryption
Password protected sharing OFF
IPv6 disabled
Homegroup stuff either OFF or ON and managed by Windows (but this is irrelevant)
4) firewall off

Answer:Cannot ping W7 machine from any vista machine

Why is IPv6 disabled? You do realize that IPv6 is only used on the LAN and is needed for Homegroups to work correctly. Maybe you were just thrown off by the first picture below which is only telling you that IPv6 is not connected to the WAN because it's not supposed to be.

The second picture shows it as enabled for the LAN.
It doesn't matter much either way unless you are Homegroup, but Homegroup only works with Windows 7 computers. For Vista and Win 7 you need to use either workgroup or public file sharing. You also need to enable file sharing on the Vista machine.

You should not need to turn the firewall off.

Are you sure that you are sharing the correct group. There is a seperate public file sharing settings page but the workgroup and homegroup use the same settings page.

Maybe you were thrown off because there are two settings pages. The third picture is the Homegroup and Workgroup settings page and the fourth one is for the Public file sharing.

Ok, this 'brilliant' idea I just had to save time and aggravation can't be possible--but I have to ask.

I have OEM Win10 + apps/data on my recent Lenovo P50.

I've installed a third party BIOS on my old Lenovo T61 (to run SATA II), replaced the cooling fan and will install a replacement SSD.

The P50 is twice the drive size as the T61's pending SSD 'but' the installed data on the P50 is less than the physical size of the T61.

If I restore (Reflect free current version) an image of the P50 to a clean T61 SSD would I get a properly functional Win10 identical to the information on the P50?

Answer:Can I image machine a to a new drive machine b?

Yes, the T61 has Win7 activated long ago that was an update from the longer ago OEM Vista.

Not activating kills my idea.

I'll just go ahead and do the previously downloaded Win10 iso and forget the bright idea.

My son's XP machine is channeling The Police. There appears to be a Ghost In The Machine.He has a Dell OptiPlex GX520. I bought it for him 4-5 years ago from a shop that recycles computers from businesses and sells them to the public.Last he told me that the computer has developed a vibration that causes an annoying buzz. I told him that if he brings it over, I'll take a look at it. Then he told me about a stranger problem.Since the buzz was annoying, he had started to turn the machine off via Start...Turn Off Computer. What's weird is that the computer has started to turn itself on in the middle of the night. He'll turn it off before he goes to bed and then wake up to hear it buzzing a few hours later. He now unplugs it every night.Any idea why the machine would power itself on? He connects to the internet via a wireless router rented from TWC. Somehow Wake On LAN seems like a long shot.message edited by DerbyDad03

On page 9 of the manual:http://www.levnapc.cz/ProductsFiles...it describes an 'auto power on' feature under power management in bios setup where you can set a specific time to turn on the computer. That's your ghost.

I'm trying to send about 1.5m total of multiple files to four win98 pc's from a win98 pc on a home network without domain through open c-drive shares. The sending pc starts to send the files and then errors out with an illegal operation. If I unmap one of the pc's and then send the batch again, it works no problem. It doesn't matter which one of the four pc's I unmap, the process works. But four is too much for it. Can't figure it out. Someone had mentioned MTU, but I'm not sure where to find that setting or if that is even an option really. Anyone shed some light on this problem or point me in the right direction? Thanks.

Answer:Batching to 4 pc's from one machine crashing machine

I don't think your MTU settings are your problem. Highly doubtful. However, I don't really understand how you are sending the files. Are you batching to them all at one time or are you sending the files to mapped drive A first, then waiting for it to finish and then sending it to drive B, then waiting for it to finish and then sending it to drive C and then the 4th one after that?

What does your batch file look like? I know it is most likely irrelevant, but might be worth posting.

So I have an older machine that is set up correctly. I want to image that old machine, and image it to the new machine. But is there a trick to doing that since the machine is a whole different model?
 

Answer:Have old machine. Want to image it, and transfer to new machine. Possible?

Clone it with clonezilla to a new disk (or one that you do not care about overwriting all the data) and then boot. In linux you have a very high chance of success. In windows the chance is lower but since windows XP even that is high enough to try. For windows you probably want to put your SATA ports in IDE emulation mode otherwise you are likely to get a blue screen on boot due to the OS not using the AHCI driver by default.

Do you know what I mean? I get so frustrated when I get the "Access Denied" message. it seems to me I spend more time trying to get into these machines than I do reparing them.

Josh, welcome to the windows 7 forums.

One option which I use is a free vpn called Hamachi. It is owned by the logmein people but it does have a free version. It is encrypted and allows you to access the other machine using either Remote Desktop Program or another of the free programs like VNC. There is also the free version of Logmein.

search on hamachi and you should be able to see what it does. They do have a pay version but there is a free version.

I have a network with two machines; a laptop and a desktop. I am able to see the computers from both machines. I can access the network and homegroup on the desktop from the laptop. I can see the laptop from the desktop but I can not access files or drives on the laptop. Remote desktop works for both machines and all shares and devices are operational. Disabling the firewall on the laptop has no effect.

Prior to last week, I was able to access the lan, but I disconnected the laptop and took a trip where I connect to other networks and had to change the wireless settings; however these machines are connected by ethernet cable.

When checking the detail in diagnositic, I get the following error.
"The remote device or resource won't accept the connection"

How can I get my network to all access to the laptop files on the LAN access to the homegroup files from the desktop?

HELP!!

I am not an IT Pro, however I need my IT Dept to setup Office XP (minus Access) and Access 97 on a machine in my office. They have done this before on my machine, however they can't remember how they did it, supposedly they used a MS White Paper to do the setup, however they can't find it now and neither can I, any help you all can give me would be greatly appreciated.

Hi all.
Now I know this might get cut but I need to ask. I play Darkthrone and sadly one of our alliance members called Michael who was 14 was in a very serious accident and sadly lost his life.

The problem we have is his Mum is trying to get access to his PC because it has a lot of Pictures etc on it that she wants to get printed up. But the machine (which has XP Pro on it) has a password on it and she doesnt know what the passwrod is. Is there anyway of getting around the XP Pro password?

Now I know there is a risk behind posting info like this on a forum but if anyone knows how to get around this could they even PM me. I wouldnt normally ask for someting like this but it would mean alot to Michaels Mum if we could get these pictures and stuff for her.

Many thanks in advance.

Smeg

Answer:Important to get access to this machine!

Set the disk up as a slave in another PC running XP and copy the files you need.

This weekend my dad and I are planning on splitting the cost to buy a new Dell laptop with XP Pro on it.

He needs to be able to have MS Office Pro (ie. Excel, Word, Powerpoint, & Access) on it. We'd like to find a way of doing this without having to fork out $400 for another installation of Office Pro. So he needs to know the viablitity of a couple options.

My first question is when he bought his Dell desktop, he bought it with Office Pro. Is there any issues with using the CDs he got with his desktop to also install it on his the Laptop when it comes?
If we just installed Office 2003 that came with his desktop purchase onto the laptop, would there be issues with MS Updates? Or are things like that cool, as long as it's within the same household?

Next, my mom is a teacher and can get the cheaper Student/Teacher version of Office. The problem with this is that it doesn't have Access on it. Now would things work without problem if he bought the Student Teacher version for $149 and then installed Access 2000 and bought the $109 upgraded to Access 2003? Also, is there anything that would cause issues if he just kept it with Access 2000?

Well I should imagine that the scanario would compare to MS's operating systems, ie; 1 licence = 1 PC. Installing on to another machine would be pointless and if what I have said is true then also illegal.

I have a work network, a desktop and 2 laptops, all using 7 Pro.
The desktop has just been upgraded from XP to 7. The system functioned normally before this upgrade but now one of the laptops cannot connect to either of the other machines. The laptops are 64 bit, the desktop, 32 bit.

Synctoy is used to keep the Laptops in sync with the Desktop.

The Desktop has 2 users - "user 1" & "user 2" there are no passwords. There a 3 shared folders (everyone, full control), Users (public shares only), User1's Docs (user1 only) and User2's Docs(user2 only).

Laptop1 has "user1" only with password. There a 4 shares, 3 folders( everyone, full control) and Users (public folders only).

Laptop2 has "user2" only with password. There a 4 shares, 3 folders( everyone, full control) and Users (public folders only).

The Desktop and Laptop1 can access all permitted shares on all machines.

The Laptop1 displays Desktop's shares. The public shares can be accessed and user1's Docs ask for a login before being accessible. User2's Docs are blocked. The Users share shows the public folders, User1's Docs and User2's Docs. Public Folders and User1's Docs are accessible. User2's Docs are blocked

Laptop2 behaves very badly!
On clicking the Desktop icon (in windows explorer) a login screen appears; entering User2's name and no password then shows the shares. The public shares are accessible but User2's Docs... Read more

Prior to upgdrading from 32 to 64 bit Win7 I had no difficulty moving files between my Win7 computer and my wife's XP.

After doing so, there must be a security setting that requires attention.

I have right clicked my wife's computer explorer, selected Administrator (that's her), My documents and My pictures and checked off both instances of share this on the network.

However, I'm still getting the attached error on my screen when attempting to open one of those directories?

Mark

Answer:Re-install now cannot access other machine?

Try and create a new share with the proper credentials and delete the old and try it again.

I have a rig running Vista Ultimate 64 (specs in sig) and I just took the HDD out of my old XP machine to get the files off of it. The thing is, while Vista sees the second HDD with no problem, I can't access any of the files on it. I am trying to get all my pics, vids and music off the old HDD but Vista keeps saying I don't have permission to access them. I keep having to change the permission settings one file at a time. Is there any way to simply allow access to the whole HDD so I don't have to do it one file at a time?

Hello everyone,

I am hoping someone may be able to help me with the following. I tried to use VMware's free "converter" software to convert my physical HP machine to a virtual machine. However, when trying to run the virtual machine, it says that the virtual machine has two processors & that it is limited to only using one processor, & therefore, will not start. The physical machine is a dual core processor, but I see no way to configure the virtual machine so that it only has one processor.

It seems to me the software should just configure itself to at least run, and from there a person can try to tweak the settings and be advised if there are limitations at that point, but that would make to much sense. Alternatively, they could provide an easy way to change the settings so you can at least get the thing to run, but again, that would make to much sense.

Anyway, if anyone can help me get the virtual machine clone running, please let me know.

Thanks
John
