Solved: Exporting Graphic Paths from Flash

Q: Solved: Exporting Graphic Paths from Flash

I used Flash CS3 to make a handy, little graphic out of vectors, but I now can't export it to Fireworks. Every time I copy and paste it into another program, it pops up as a low-res and blocky bitmap.

I really don't want to redraw the thing, but I can't figure out how to export vector data. Please help!

Hey everybody

A report that I have in access messes up when I export it as an Excel spreadsheet. I export it, and then go to open the excel file. When I open the file up, I get the error message "File error. Some formats may have been lost."

When this happens, I look at the excel file, and the some of the dates I have are numbers like "38848". The dates should be dates like 5/25/2006.

The odd thing is, all the dates aren't messed up. Any ideas on what is going on?

A:Solved: Access 2003 - Exporting Report to Flash causes Formatting loss

Hey smooth, for an explanation of the dates turning into numbers, check my signature (Access Dates and Access Date Conversions both have info). I don't know why it would happen with only some, but there must be a common trait among the dates that get swapped.

I guess this may be a tiny bit off the subject here, but I am attempting this in windows 7.

I have a program file manager tool called 'Directory Opus' that is capable of calling windows external programs and passing them the current directory the file manager is sitting on.

So far so good.

Now I want to call a cygwin (linux/unix emulator for windows) terminal with that file manager.

Checking properties on the cygwin Icon I got the path: C:\cygwin\bin\mintty.exe -i /Cygwin-Terminal.ico -

So it is a path to a command and an argument to that command.

Actually I guess it is 2 arguments to a command since I think '-' in that position means to feed anything on STDIN to the command. At least that would be true in unix shell programming.

So using the Directory opus setup I pass this call:
'@async:C:\cygwin\bin\mintty.exe -i /Cygwin-Terminal.ico - <and here add {s}>'

So the call ends up:
'@async:C:\cygwin\bin\mintty.exe -i /Cygwin-Terminal.ico - {s}'

That call does just what it is supposed to. It passed the current file absolute address however cygwin terminal does not understand the windows path notation. If I were passing it: C:\subdir\blah\ It would just say 'No such file' Cygwin terminal wants to see /cygdrive/c/subdir/blah Or at least I think that is what is happing.

So to cut to the chase.... I'd like to put a little wrapper to Cygwin terminal in there with the code necessary to convert 'C:\subdir\blah\' to '/cygdrive/c/subdir/blah/'

But, I do not know how ... Read more

i'm sending this out from my iphone, so please excuse the format and lack of capital letters ;-)
i got a new hp pavilion laptop; os is windows 7 home premium 64-bit. when i booted it up the first time, there was already an administrator account on it, bearing the name of the company who had sent me the laptop. i renamed the user account and the computer to my name; but the paths connected to the user profile and the user profile itself (under "users" on the c drive) still have the old name. i did some reading and it seems that one has to rename the account back to the old name, then create a new administrator account with the name one wants and transfer the profile from the old account to the new one, then delete the old account if everything is working well; however, i believe that these instructions are rather for windows xp than for windows 7, and i have no idea how to copy a profile. i am not a computer geek and cannot fiddle around with the registry, and i'm new to windows 7. so: how can i rename the profile paths and my profile folder to MY name - or is it impossible to change, and will i just have to live with it? i also hope that if the situation cannot be changed, then this is simply a cosmetic 'bug' and won't cause any problems.

I'd suggest completely uninstalling and reinstalling the Java JRE in it's default location. Example: C:\Program Files\Java.

Hi guys

I am using Office 2007 and am unable to find this information else where on the form.

Heres the scenario:

I have 3000 different excel files that I wish to extract data from, possibly using VB. This data will be used to put into a table in Access (however, it may be imported into an excel sheet and copied accross if easier.)

Each Excel file consists of exactly the same template, with different information enclosed in this template. I need a script that will extract the values of certain cells (the same cells everytime) in the sheet and input into the table (or final Excel sheet). This script needs to be able to run on every Excel file within a certain folder.

In addition to this, it needs to grab the last date in a date column and copy this into a single date field at the top of the sheet.

I know this a small request , but in theory if this is possible I would really appreciate someone to help me a little.

Please note, I have no previous experience with VB, only amateur excel formulas.

If there is anything else that would help people understand the issue I will be happy to forward any information.

I dont expect to be spoon fed but I am on a really tight schedule, I hope that the answer can be beneficial to other users.

Hi Guys,

I don't know to much about LDAP queries so I hope someone can help me out!

I have an LDAP filter which I can use in ADUC to see which users have Outlook Web Access enabled. If it helps, the filter is " (& (objectClass=user)(homeMDB=*)(!protocolSettings=HTTP񖶅ЁЁЁ)) ".

If I want to export the users who show when the filter is applied to a .csv file, I have to go to each OU individually and export each to a separate file. We have separate OUs for Branch staff and Head Office staff. The Head Office OU is further divided by department.

I have found a website explaining the use of CSVDE (here). It explains the use of the -f and -r switches (eg CSVDE -f export.csv -r "(&(objectClass=user)(sn=Thomas))" ).

I was wondering if it was possible use CSVDE with the LDAP filter to only export the filtered sample?

I am following instructions to export addresses from Yahoo to Outlook 2000 per website
My issue is that I follow everything correctly saving my addresses as a .csv file and during the process of going into outlook and choosing "import address book from a .csv file" I get a prompt to download the import/export feature.

I no longer have my disk so cannot download the feature. I was wondering if anyone knew of any freeware that can override this issue.

Microsoft should have downloaded it initially when I inserted the disk, not prompted me to find the disk I got 7 years ago because it never loaded the first time. I recently changed to Outlook and subscribed for $20 to Yahoo Plus because Yahoo is having all these server issues on their end. Now I have to deal with this! Please tell me how to get addresses into Outlook if possible without the disk. If it's not just let me know so I can save my time!

A:Solved: Exporting addresses Outlook 2000 without a CD

I don't personally know. However, w/r/t this bit:

First, export information from your Yahoo! Address Book:

1. Open your Yahoo! Address Book and click "Import/Export" in the upper-right corner.
2. In the Export section, click "Export Now" next to the phrase "Microsoft Outlook."
3. A dialog window opens and gives you the option to save your Yahoo! Address Book to disk as a .csv file. Click "Save to Disk".
4. Click "OK". The .csv file will be saved to your desktop.

In Outlook Express, there's an option to File > Import > Other Address Book, which then has a Text File (CSV) option. I don't know if that works straight off (don't have a CSV to test with), if it does you can then export from OE to Outlook without getting the import/export feature prompt (because I just tried that part).

So ... do you have Outlook Express?

EDIT: actually I justed tested exporting my current OE address book as a CSV, and then importing it back. Worked with no prompts.

Can someone advise on the following please ?

I developed a system for remote offices which do not have access to network drives.
I visited all these offices, and installed the mdb on their C drives.

Each month, they all export 5 tables, and email them to their boss here in Head Office, who then imports them into his own mdb.
He will then be able to run various queries and reports against all this data.

This works fine.

Eventually the remote offices will also be required to run queries and reports.

I have my own copy of the mdb, and have developed the necessary queries and reports, which will shortly be ready for installation.

My question is this :
How can I transfer any queries and reports from my mdb to those of others ?

I would have thought I could do this by exporting and importing, but this does not seem to work.

If I try to export a Report, what I get is the output from the Report, not the Source, which is what I need.

Or is this the wrong approach entirely ?

I have tried Googling the problem, and have seen something about Application.SaveAsText, which is an addon, but I don't have the necessary privileges to install this, and it would contravene corporate policy anyway should I attempt to.

Surely there has to be a simple way in MS Access to transfer Queries and Reports to and from mdbs !

A:Solved: MS ACCESS 93 : Exporting Queries & Reports

Hello, yes you take a copy of the Current database with the new queries and reports and paste it on the other computers that have the original databases.

However, the admin disabled all SMTP access in favor of OWA. However, I can't seem to find a way to download, say, a particular folder, or a selection of emails, even to text files without saving each email individually per the linked thread.

Is there any way to do this? I noticed that most of the OWA threads were left unresponded...

Thanks for any tips,

Also I need the hyperlink to the file in their respective cell.

Sorry I am new to code in excel and am starting to learn its power. Thanks for your help!

I recently put a coply of MS Office 2013 onto a friends computer for them and set up outlook and I cannot get it to export my email from Windows live mail. I have Outlook set as the default mail client and have exhausted the how to on the microsoft help site (used instructions from ) nothing worked.

I keep getting an error message stating that MAPI isn't setup properly and that I have to set outlook to be the default mail client before it will complete. I have done this and still keep getting the same message. I have also tried exporting the messages in their native formal *.fol but Outlook won't read them. (why MS insists on not building easy portability between its own programs in areas like this is beyond my scope of comprehension or why it cares if I have Outlook installed on that particiular machine or not what if a user wants to put the messages onto another machine that doesn't have live mail on it only Outlook????)

Griping aside I either need a program that can convert the exported *.fol files into a readable *.pst file or compatible format or troubleshoot why live mail isn't seeing that "yes in fact I do have Outlook installed and yes it is set as the default mail client both from Outlook itself and from checking the default program list, I set every file type I could see as default to Outlook and still nothing.

Thanks for your help you guys have never let me down.

Hi All!

I'm not new to this forum, but havn't visited it for quite a while and lost my old account!

The query I'm looking for help/guidance with is....

Working in a Corporate IT environment, we often have issues with user profiles that we need to somehow extract from Documents and Settings on Computer A and import onto Computer B with all settings intact. Although I am aware this is quite easy using such tools as File and Settings Transfer Wizard, this tool doesn't keep any of the Office configurations.

We find that when restoring a user's profile onto a new computer, the largest ammount of time is taken setting up their Outlook profile, re-adding in all PST files and additional mailboxes. This is often made more difficult by users who arn't completely sure how their Outlook was setup prior to their profile being extracted!

I'm looking for a way, (possibly remotely!) to access a computer/HDD and copy the local user profile with all settings, customizations and Office configurations intact, of which we can then copy/import to a new PC to allow the user to log in without any configuration of their profile required.

At present, one way I can see of doing this (although I havn't had much success with this method!) is the following.

1. Copy profile from Documents and Settings to external HDD.
2. Export user's profile registry from HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\ProfileList to .reg file.

Hi All

I have a medion laptop, running 32bit version of Windows 7 ultimate, 160GB Hard Drive & 1Meg Ram. It ran fine for about a year after upgarding from Windows Vista to the above system about a year ago.

All was fine until I installed some Nvidea updates which kind of came as auto/recommended updates via windows 7 updates.
Now when I turn the computer on it loads ok in normal mode but I have 4 small screens running length ways, (left to right) both at log in & once I've logged on which I can just about do.

I have tried the following;
1. unistalling the updates
2 also did a system restore back to before I installed the updates but that then re-installed the above updates.

The computer works fine except for the above it will update with windows etc Nortons all no problem, but I cant see what im doing too well!

Also another thing that happens is that the standy is greyed out & even if I go in settings & try to change this I cant.

I dont think the system is loading up 4 times...& my other thought is it maybe something to do with screen settings but just a guess...?
I can connect a external H/D & this will work on via the USB port but also get 4 views as per above.

Hello all,

I think I have only seen something like this once and the problem was attributed to damaged RAM. This time around, the RAM seems to be in perfect working condition (tested with Memtest) and the problem still remains. I am starting to wonder if the graphic chip is not having issues. Take a look at the attached photo and tell me your opinions. I ran FurMark yesterday on this notebook for 6 hours and did not see this happen, but the customer insists that this graphic issue still sporadically occurs. The Nvidia graphic drivers are the newest version.


Samsung Series 5 Ultrabook NP530U4C-S02DE

Intel Core i5 2537M 1.40 GHz / 8 GB DDR-3 @ 1033 MHz

A:Strange sporadic graphic issues, graphic lock ups (with Pictures)

I think i read somewhere here in fact... that the newest drivers were causing a similar issue, try rolling back the drivers, and check if the newest drivers do support the GT 620. Ask if the customer installed drivers properly, and if the issue started with the install of the drivers. if so, you have the culprit.

Then you could try reinstalling the proper way, or leave it with the old drivers for the mean time.

A:Paths , Librabries ?

You need to remember that library's only point to the actual file somewhere on the network or on your own machine in the "user" files. If you need to delate something from the library you should delate the file from the actual source "my pictures" My documents" "my music".

But there is a way to make it work like you want.

Just go into Windows Media Player, choose the "organize" tab then "options" then choose the Library tab and set it to "delate files from the computer when delated from the Library. Although I believe that only works if you are delating files from Library of the machine that contains the source files.

That should allow for delating from the Library, but only from the machine that the files reside on, I don't believe it will work accross the network. It think it still works best if you delate from the file source instead of the Library.

So I've been trying to use system file checker, and encountered a problem where it can't repair a file. I found this page detailing how to manually fix the problem:

Use the System File Checker tool to troubleshoot missing or corrupted system files on Windows Vista or on Windows 7

I was fine until step 2, where it says

"For example, type takeown /f E:\windows\system32\extremely_simplified_example.dll"

The problem is, my CBS.log file says stuff like:

Cannot repair member file [l:24{12}]"FWPKCLNT.SYS"
Unable to repair \SystemRoot\WinSXS\Manifests\\[l:24{12}]"FWPKCLNT.SYS"

and I don't know how to translate that into a path to use with the takeown command. I searched for that file using explorer and found a dozen different copies, so I'm not sure which one to replace.

Semi-related questions: Can I just replace them all? I'm planning on using a copy of the file from a similar system that works, is that ok?


A:Help understanding CBS.log file paths

Hello Southbound, and welcome to Seven Forums.

Those instructions there are fine, but just a bit vague. OPTION THREE in the tutorial below can help give you only the SFC results to help make it easier to go through.SFC /SCANNOW Command - System File Checker
Next, the tutorial below can show you how to extract files from your installation disc to replace any listed files that SFC cannot repair.Extract Files from Windows 7 Installation DVD
Before doing anything, please post back and upload your sfcdetails.txt file to see what all may be wrong, and if it any file that cannot be repaired is worth worrying about.Screenshots and Files - Upload and Post in Seven Forums
To help interrupt what it says to know the path:Cannot repair member file [l:24{12}]"FWPKCLNT.SYS"
Unable to repair \SystemRoot\WinSXS\Manifests\\[l:24{12}]"FWPKCLNT.SYS"
The first line says that SFC cannot repair the FWPKCLNT.SYS file.

The second line is the path of the file. "SystemRoot" is a variable "%SystemRoot%" that is actually just a shortcut for "C:\Windows". This leaves you with the file path as:C:\Windows\WinSXS\Manifests\FWPKCLNT.SYS
Doing a search on the C: drive for the listed FWPKCLNT.SYS file would help give you all of it's locations if needed as well.

Hope this helps for now,

Open an elevated command prompt in Windows 7

IMPORTANT: make a backup of your bcd file first. To do that, type:

For Vista:

* insert the Windows vista BCD ID, too small for me to read (take out the *'s)

ok, Vista should be working now, please test it to make sure

For Ubuntu: - optional; this will rename "nst Linux Loader" to "Wubi Ubuntu"


bcdedit /set {*insert here*} description "Wubi Ubuntu"

* insert the "nst Linux Loader" BCD ID, too small for me to read (take out the *'s)

It is getting late, so try those, which should get Vista back on its feet, also go to the elevated cmd and type "bcdedit" please post back the results right-click the cmd prompt and select "mark" then highlight every thing, then post the results.

Firstly, context: My student edition of Autodesk Maya was not working (something about the license being invalid or 'not found', and so when I searched for the error message online, a solution was to go into Environments and Paths, and replace/edit or add one for C:/Autodesk. It didn't work, and I ended up just uninstalling and reinstalling the program manually for it to work.
However, apparently I screwed around really badly in there, because now important things won't open, such as my MalwareBytes program. When I try, a window will popup and say this:
"C:\Program Files (x86)\Malwarebytes Anti-Malware\mbam.exe
The system could not find the environment option that was entered."
So, naturally, I try to find/open the Environments and Paths thing again, right? Nope. I can't open that either:

On my main PC i am running Windows 7 Homepremium 64bit. My Pc is connected via ethernet cable to BT Homehub3.

I have another PC running Windows XP SP3 connected via WiFi and a laptop also Wndows XP and connected vis WiFi.

I have a Kodak C110 AiO printer connected to the home pc via USB cable.

I have tried to set up printing on the other PC and laptop and the Printer is shown in the network map, but cannot and all my efforts have now disrupted the network; viz I cannot access shared files on the Network.

On the Home PC the network is called Network 2.

I want it to be the Homegroup or Work Group but cannot seem to make this happen.

Any suggestions please?

A:How do I reset my network paths

If I take it you want to print on the main PC from the other two ? I have a similar situation and set it up giving the main PC a fixed IP and then when adding the printer to the other two I used the local port method i.e \\fixed IP address\printer share name, having initially shared the main printer - you will need to install the printer driver on the remote systems. My main PC is ethernet and all the others are wireless.

Hope this is of help.

There are still doubts about what the possible and legal upgrade paths are for Windows 7.

Below I tried to compile some information in a way which I hope will be helpful.

Thanks to my friend Kari for his valuable contribution
Any other additions or comments are much welcome

1) Upgrade: to move from Windows XP or Windows Vista to Windows 7
2) Custom or Clean Install: wipes the previous installation and install Windows 7 anew. Does not preserve user files
3) In-Place Upgrade: upgrades from specific versions of Vista to specific versions of Windows 7, preserving user files and programs.
4) Upgrade version: Windows 7 license for those who own a valid license of XP or Vista
5) Full retail version: Windows 7 license to install on any PC, independent of previous installations or ownership. Can be reinstalled on other computers (when activated the previous installation is no longer valid)
6) Full OEM version :Windows 7 license to install on one PC, independent of previous installations. Can only be re-installed on same computer and hardware setup

Upgrade paths
The chart below shows in what situations one can perform an in-place upgrade (e.g. from Vista Business to Windows 7 Professional) without the need to migrate files or programs, and the situations when one needs to do a Custom (Clean) Install and replace the data in the target disc. This is the case for all Windows XP owners or Windows Vista Starter. In this case you will need to migrate your personal files ... Read more

Hello! I recently upgraded my computer with an SSD for boot and main programs and use my 1TB HDD for general programs and media storage. The thing is I want it to by default install to my D:\ drive.

Now the only solution I see is editing the registry ProgramFilesDir - Which has some serious flaws. It will attempt to launch every program off of the D:\ drive even when it is stored on C:\ and about 9 out of 10 times, it still default installs to C:\.

Does anyone have a fix for this?

I have Windows XP Pro, sp 2.

I've encountered paths like: C:\DOCUME~1\ROYON~1\LOCALS~1\Temp. Except the tilde is higher. I don't know how to follow paths when there like this. Can someone please tell me how to interpret this path?



A:How do you interpret paths like C:\DOCUME~1\...


This kind of path is contraction of the real folder or file names so that they are compatible with the old 8.3 DOS filename format. I don't know why it is necessary, but in (my) theory it works this way:
Long names are stripped of all spaces, even between words.
If the resulting string, without extension, is longer than 8 characters, the 6 leftmost characters are taken and an index appended, to distinguish between similar names.
So "ASDFGHJKLQWE" becomes "ASDFGH~1" while ASDFGHJKLRTZ" becomes "ASDFGH~2"

So the one you submitted translates to something like

C:\Documents and Settings\Username\Local Settings\Temp
Where username is different for each user of the computer.

I am using Oplisker program.

Oplisker (Open Source Play List Maker) |

How to create m3u file from mp3s in different folders on your computer ?

It seems to only create mp3 playlist only from mp3s in the same folder.

I was interested to create playlist from different folders with different paths
to save to one m3u file, not m3u file in each folder from the mp3s within that folder.

I know I can edit the file so it goes to different paths using notepad, but that would defeat the purpose of this program making it easier to save playlst from diferent mp3s in diffrent folders.
