Different removable disks assigning different paths

Q: Different removable disks assigning different paths

I'm trying to set up Symantec Backup Exec 12 on Windows Server 2003. I want to be able to backup week 1 to X:\, week 2 to Y:\ and week 3 to Z:\ as Backup Exec requires each drive to maintain its own drive letter.

I have 3 Seagate Free Agent hard disks. When I try to assign each one its own drive letter, it won't maintain it. For example if I set drive 1 to X:\, the swap it out for drive 2 and assign that one to Y:\, when I plug in drive 1 it will mount as Y:\ rather than X:\ which I originally assigned it to.

Does anyone know how to get Windows to recognize that these are three separate drives and allow them to maintain their own drive letters?

can you not go into diskmgmt.msc and assign the drive path you require?

So I have had Windows XP Pro 64bit on a seperate hard drive for a while that I have installed first. I just decided today to partition my second hard drive and put Vista on it. The installation went fine.. but sometimes i get corrupted errors and the Main partition for Vista is listed as C when its listed as E in XP. This is causing problems. How can I make it so it stays E? This has been baffling me. Any help would be appreciated. thanks!

Do you have built in flash card readers that you can use to read digital camera chips in? If so, they occupy drive letters.

When I navigate to Start > Computer an explorer window pops up showing two icons of my factory partioned HDD (C - main & D - Factory Image). Below these is a section titled 'Devices with removable storage'. Here my DVD RW drive (E) is displayed. Also displayed are 4 more icons labled Removable Disk (G, H, I and K - where's F?) As far as I know these are phantoms of some sort as I have no other devices connected, e.g. external drives, flash, sim cards, etc.) What are these and can they be removed? They cause me confusion.

My computer won't recognize my thumb drive or camera cards.

When I open Device Manager, I have something called 'Other devices' with a yellow ? I'm not sure if this has anything to do with my problem, but wanted to let you know in case it might be relevant.

Lower in my Device Manager, I find 'Storage volumes' with 6 'Generic volumes' under it, all with yellow ! on them. When I plug my thumb drive into the front USB port, the 2nd of the 6 has the yellow ! removed and double clicking on the item brings up a window saying "This device is working properly" However, I dont' find my thumb drive in MyComputer. If I plug a USB card reader into the same USB port, the 3rd Generic volume loses its yellow!. but again it doesn't show up in MyComputer and won't open. When I plug the camera card into the card reader slot on the front of the computer, it also doesn't show up.

Both of these devices show up in MyComputer on another computer.

What I have tried:

Uninstalling all of them and rebooting, but they just came back with the yellow ! on them.

Installing them from my Recovery CD but no driver was found.

Letting it go online to search

Using a driver backup CD I had created with DriverMax

I'm not even sure it is a driver problem.

Any suggestions would be much appreciated.

I've been having two problems that have been bugging me for awhile now, and i don't seem to find a fix for them.

1. When i connect an USB Memory Card Reader, the Windows checks for disks inserted into the drives (the memory card reader has multiple card slots and all appear in My Computer whether empty or not) and displays an error: "Windows - No Disk. There is no disk in the drive. Please insert a disk into drive \Device\Harddisk4\DR8"

If i click cancel, try again or continue, Windows keeps popping up error messages for each drive of the Card Reader, and when i cancel the last error message i get a BSOD.

If i boot with the Card Reader attached, i get no error messages, and later if i perform operations with it or insert an USB memory stick, Windows figures out i have the Card Reader inserted and prompts me the same errors. I guess there's something wrong with the autoplay/ removable disks system.
2. Every time i boot Windows and log on, explorer.exe crashes, with the following error message:

The instruction at "0x00000000" referenced memory at "0x00000000". The memory could not be "read". Click OK to terminate the program.

From time to time "0x000" gets replaced by a random address.

I don't remember when this started to occur, or what i did to cause it, and it always prompts at user logon, but only on a fresh boot, if i log off and then back on it doesn't pop up again.

I've had a new computer with win7 64bit for 4 months.

A couple of days ago 4 removable discs (f,g,h & i) appeared on the page that shows details of my computer (start->computer)

Using device manager under Portable devices I see 4 units coded f,g,h & i.

I can remove them from the device manager, but when I restart the computer they reappear.

I and not aware of activating these four removable disks / portable devices.

I cannot find a way of removing or hiding these unwelcome listings

I've tried restoring my computer to a previous level, but the 4 devices/disks reappear

Any and all help welcome.


A:hiding/removing removable disks - portable devices

The first thing that I suggest when there are changes to the computer is to run a through anti virus scan. In addition download and run malwarebytes. This will elimiante the most serious of causes, we can move on from there.

Once your computer is known to be clean, in lieu of anything else, you can use system restore from before the problem. Before taking such action be sure that you did not install any new programs etc.

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

A boot disk is a disk that your computer can use to boot. A restore disk is a disk that contains some sort of restore information.

A boot disk may contain restore information and a recovery disk may be bootable.

In your case, you should just boot from the restore CD and follow the pretty on-screen instructions.

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.

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.

A:Invalid File Paths

Don't use registry cleaners. If you continue to use them, chances are that crashes will be among the least of your problems. Those things are junk, do only harm, and you should be thankful you were even able to reboot. Performance is not improved by using them, they remove needed entries, and they create their own "errors" so that they can "fix" them, making worse errors in the process.

I can't figure out how to edit booloader paths.

I had the triple boot working- 7, vista, WUBI ubuntu. Then I installed Snow Leopard and tried to add it in via easyBCD.....and all hades broke loose.

Anybody know how to fix? And how to actually set OSX to boot from windows, since there's no drive letter?

A:Edit Bootloader Paths

Open an elevated command prompt in Windows 7

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


bcdedit /export C:\SAVEDBCD

For Vista:


bcdedit /set {*insert here*} device partition=F:

* 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. Please copy the results, so i will be able to copy and paste

Also, what is the "EFI snow leopard" partition for???

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?

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

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,

A little background first.

I have a shortwave radio that is of a new type where a lot of the functions such as filters, etc. is done via software that resides on the PC.

The radio is mfg. by the WINRADIO company.
The model of the radio is a G31 DDC

After playing with the radio, it automatically Saves the frequencies that you have listened to, and puts them into Memory to be able to recall them later.
The file that it creates is called "User Memory"..

I seem to have the User Memory File in the right place, I think, but the "path" to get there seems to be different.

I have one path of:
Libraries/ Documents/ WINRADIO/ G31 DDC/ User Memory

And another path of:
C:/ Users/ Bob/ My Documents/ WINRADIO/ G31 DDC/ User Memory

They both seem to lead to the correct file of User Memory.

a. My main question: Is there really only one file of User Memory, but two different ways or paths to get to it ?

b. What's with Libraries; I've never set that up ? What are they ?

c. Notice that one path has My "Documents", and the other just "Documents".

If anyone could explain this for me, I would be most appreciative.

Much thanks,

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:
"Windows cannot find '%windir%\system32\SystemPropertiesAdvanced.exe'. Make sure you typed the name correctly, and then try again."

Hey guys, I'm a pretty novice wireless network user, as I have a Dell laptop with an Intel PRO/Wireless 2200BG Network Connection.

Anyways, I'm running a network at my apartment with a D-Link cable modem and a D-Link WBR 1310 wireless G router. This combo is in my roommates room, connecting his computer through an ethernet cord coming from the router. I had planned on using this wireless router to pick up a signal throughout the apartment, setting up a secure wireless network from it.

Over the first few months, this worked fine. One day, however, I started up the computer and got the "limited or no connectivity" message when I tried to connect to the network. Whenever I go to the status screen of the wireless connection I get a message saying the the network could not assign a network address to the computer. When I click "repair" I just get the same problem over again. I have tried several things including the CMD screen/ipconfig/release then ipconfig/renew - which didn't work. I tried logging on to the IP address of the wireless router through my roommates computer and renewing the IP...still didn't work.

What's weird about this is that this is the only location I can't pick up a signal. Everywhere else I go that has a wireless network connection I have no problems connecting whatsoever. It's only in my apartment.

Any suggestions?

I have a Acer Aspire One that crashed and blew smoke out the power plug hole a few weeks ago. I had Windows 7 installed on it. Sent it to the factory. They replaced the motherboard, keyboard, LCD cable and HARD DRIVE........ S'ok didn't loose any data. Knew I'd just re-install all of the programs I had before. When I turned it on, found that they had installed VISTA with an "User owner" of ACER. After reading found out that it was better to upgrade to Windows 7 than do a clean install, so that's what I did. Works good, except it still has an "user owner" (don't know what else to call it) of ACER. I'm the administrator, but when I install some software it says it's registered to ACER. Is there someway to change that over to me or do I have to do a clean install?

A:Is assigning a different user possible?

I'll let someone else answer the changing of the registered owner, but where did you read that an upgrade is a better option than a clean install?

Clean installs are always the better option. Acer should have all the drivers and utilities you would need on their website. Then, with a clean install, you add to the system only what you want.

Hello geeks and gurus allover this planet and beyond. This is not a problem per se, it is only something I would like to do if it is possible.

I get TV from my home country here where I live over the net. I subscribe a Finnish IPTV service, receiving signal with a Motorola VIP1920-9T IPTV box. The box had no HD; if I want to save tv programs, I use a web-PVR where I can choose any show from any channel I'm subscribing from the last two weeks. Service provider saves all channels for me for 14 days. Using this web-PVR I can also stream the shows to my computer, which is practical to somebody like me who has to travel quite a lot.

I have a 50 Mbps VDSL line, router is Belkin N1 Vision. It is normally really fast, working fine and enough for me. The problem is, when I use web-PVR to download a show to my HD, it uses all bandwith it can get. This means a stuttering TV-signal and slow surfing as long as the download takes.

Web-PVR has a nice and easy interface where I can choose bandwith (image after the text). I think it is only for streaming, having no effect to download speed.

So here comes the question: how can I assign a certain minimum bandwith for IPTV box, and set a certain max bandwith for web-PVR. The goal is to give IPTV a minimum 15 Mbps, web-PVR maximum 15 Mbps and leave the rest free so surf speed is not affected even when wathing IPTV and downloading shows.

Kari; After reading your post, I am wondering if a "Download Manager" would do what you want. This is "FreeDownloadManager", although there are many others.

It is designed to reduce the time it takes to complete a download by downloading several parts of the file simultaneously. However, it can be set to download only one stream and allow for other network activity.

I have been doing some CD burning speed tests and have come across something interesting.

On my Win98se machine, I have a 24x burner. The new Roxio update now shows actual speed while burning. I noticed when I selected 24x, the speed varied anywhere from 6x to 14x during the burn. I tried again by killing all processes I had like McAffee and firewall and the speed increased slightly to a range of 8x to 18x.

However, when I went to CD properties in Device Manager and checked DMA, the speed is now consistently over 20x for most burns, even with background processes running.

Now to my Win2K question. My friend has a 40x burner on Win2K Pro. However, I cannot find any way to assign a DMA channel to it (assuming he would get the same success I did). His 40x is now slower than my 24x.

Anybody know how to assign a DMA channel in Win2K Pro?

A:Assigning DMA channel to CD-RW

Assigning the DMA is a two part process in W2K.

First, you have to have UDMA enabled in your BIOS setup.

You then go to Device Manager (right click My Computer, Properties, Hardware, and Device Manager. Open the "IDE ATA/ATAPI controllers" entry, and right click to select the properties of the primary or secondary IDE, depending on where the CD-RW drive is connected. Under Advanced Settings, select "DMA if Available".

A:assigning IRQ to VGA(Enable)

Do you actually have an IRQ conflict in the first place? I'd be surprised if you did.

You would change the IRQ in Device Manager. However I think you can't do that if there is no conflict. I seriously doubt your issue has anything to do with an IRQ.

But to answer your question, if you were to change an IRQ you'd click Start -> Search, type "Device Manager" minus the quotes in the box, expand your video adapter in Device Manager, right click it, select Properties, select the Resources tab, scroll down the box till you see where it says IRQ and highlight it. From here, I think if there is no conflict, you can't do anything. If there is a conflict you would select Change Setting and select an IRQ not in use.

Im running windows 98se, with 256 ram.

I also have a geforce 256, soundblaster live, and a d-link nic presently installed.

Any help would be greatly appreciated,

Hi there,

I have a small guest house with about 14 rooms. We have 1 fritzbox adsl router system(1024 kBit/s) connected to 2 dlink dap-1360 access points which repeat the bandwidth to 2 dlink dap-1360 repeaters. In other words there is internet access throughout the premises. What I need to know is how can I disperse an even amount (lets say 10kb each) of bandwidth to each guest who logs onto the wireless system. reason...sometimes there is a guest who abuses the system (usually torrentz or youtube) and it eats up all the bandwidth. All the other guests complain that the internet is slow. How can I resolve this?

I am fixing to add a second hard drive to a computer. Currently the HD is assigned as the C drive, with the CD and DVD being D and E.

If I add a slave drive will it show up as the F drive? Is that the best, or is there a way to assign it as the D drive and bump the CD and DVD down to E and F drives?

If so will it mess up programs, etc. Am running XP Pro.

Hello everyone
How you're all doing?
I have a computer with a windows 2000 Professional as O/S.
but the person who installed it assigned the letter D to the Hard disk and E to the CDROM. Now I just bought a CDRW (CD burner) that I want to install.

Is that a problem to install it, or should I reassign C to the Hard disk and D to the CDROM so that I can assign E to the CD burner?

How do I reassign C to the Hard disk and D to the CDROM?

thanks for helping me!!

A:assigning drive name ?


I am not completely understanding your question, do you mean that the OS is on D: and not C: ??

If so can you double click on "My Computer" and tell us what drives are present ??

It sounds like that whoever installed the OS had it Boot from C: and the OS is loaded from D:...

Hi all,

I was hoping someone knowledgeable could clear up some confusion I have on the upgrade process. I've googled my questions and it seems there is no definitive answer and that Microsoft themselves seem to not be consistent on their treatment of upgrades.

I originally wasn't going to upgrade but at $39.99 for a Pro version, I can't resist. I am aware that you need a current install to upgrade. I was hoping that during the upgrade process I would be given an option to chose the key I wished to invalidate for the upgrade. Now, I am quite fond of my Windows 7 license and am going to keep it around in case I don't like Windows 8 and just because it is a great OS.

So my dilemma is as follows:
I have a couple full licenses for XP and Vista. I also have the OEM license of Vista Business that is on a sticker on my computer. I am resigned to the fact that I'll have to uninstall my current OS and install an old one for the upgrade and I can live with that.

I would, however, like to get rid of my most worthless license for the upgrade, which in my opinion is the one OEM one on a sticker on my laptop. So I guess the question is would the limitations of the OEM license, which is that it is only valid for that specific machine be attached to the upgraded version. As the Pro upgrade is for a limited time only, I imagine any future computer I will buy will have the Home version with it and I would like to preserve my access to the Pro version as well as to have the option to have a...

A:Upgrade paths and future limitations

Hello jaebberwock. Welcome to the Eight Forums.

You mentioned "in case I don't like Windows 8" so I guess you haven't used it yet.
Based on that assumption, I would suggest downloading Windows 8 Enterprise Evaluation for free. (good for 90 days) Burn it to a dvd. Do you know anything about imaging? Do you have any external drives? I would consider learning a little about external drives so that you could make some images? Are you on a budget? Can you afford to spend a few bucks on imaging software? Search online for imaging software. You could image your XP system without affecting it by an upgrade. Same with Vista or Windows 7. Image what you want to save so that they could be returned to the condition they were in. I cannot help you with your questions about upgrading licenses and keys so maybe someone else will chime in. Personally, I am not a fan of dual booting, many problems could happen. Opinions vary.

Download Windows 8 Enterprise Evaluation

From my point of view, I would image backup XP, Vista, Windows 7 using the software of your choice (perhaps something like Acronis). Then, install Windows 8 on unallocated space. Do you know what unallocated space is? I apologize. I know nothing about what you know. Anyway, good luck. There are tutorials here:

Hi friends!

I'm experiencing a very strange bug with a custom library. On the odd occasion when I open an explorer pane and navigate to my library on the left-hand side, two of my included folders - which are both located in 'C:\Program Files\...' will change to a non-existent 'C:\Program Files (x86)\...' version of the same folder. If I click on that folder in the library pane it will tell me the folder doesn't exist.

It happens infrequently but often enough to be annoying. It's not immediately clear what causes it or why it stops. When it happened just now I closed all open explorer panes and opened a new one, and the library displayed the correct 'non x86' folder structure.

Any idea what causes this and how it can be avoided?

Where are the Office programs' exe files found? I cannot find them in 2010?
I check the Office program shortcuts and they look like this:

"C:\Program Files (x86)\Common Files\microsoft shared\Virtualization Handler\CVH.EXE" "Microsoft Excel 2010 9014006204090000"

I just ran a customized install of Office Ultimate 2007. I open Powerpoint, and tried to access the clipart library to insert a clipart image. It gives me an error saying it can't display the clipart, and tells me I have to run Setup again, and choose "Add & Remove Programs" to install the feature; but it doesn't say WHAT feature. I've done customized installs 100 times, and never had this issue. I've also got the Office12/Clipart folder on another partition from a past install. So, I was going to try and go to the Options/Paths like Office USED to have, but NOO can't go there. So, how the #$&& do I fix this issue?

Having moved a bunch of shared printers from one server to another, I need to change the local printer paths on all workstations - is this something that can be done at a command line, and therefore scripted and placed into a batch file/login script?

I rather think it's going to have to be done with something like VBScript or WSH (about which I know nothing!) but if anyone has any ideas, I'd be pleased to hear them.

I changed the user name from "user001" to "user888". That changed the name on the login/logout screens. But the user folders and paths all stayed with the old name "user001". As a result some things, like the name installed programs will grab and use, are still called "user001".

Is there a way, short of re-installing Windows, to change all the appropriate folders, paths and registry entries to read "user888" and get rid of the old user name completely?

Hello everyone! New here with this problem, hope I'm entering it under the right category (if not, sorry)

I have a local and a network folder embeded in a tiddlywiki page in iframes.
They both contain folders, .doc and .xls files with both greek and english names.
I've set up the open office plugin to show the aforementioned files within browser, so the frames work as
a sort of view area ( ).

At the same time I need to be able to open the folders / files in their native windows environment.
The above configuration doesn't allow that as .doc and .xls links open in the open office environment by default.

A number of firefox add-ons (Open With 4.0 /,
IE Tab 2 / provide the functionality to open firefox links in different browsers and/or programs.

I've set up explorer, winword.exe and excel.exe as manual entries in the Open With add-on which allows you to right click on firefox links and select to open them with these applications. Other add-ons allow you to do the same thing with internet explorer or a chosen application.

They all present the following problem:

The plugin works perfectly when opening the folder file:///C:/a with explorer
and the files file:///C:/a/a.doc with winword and file:///C:/a/a.xls with excel.exe.

Hi there,
I have been looking for a simple way to begin to understand the command line in windows. I'm trying to import python code from a folder, and at the moment I can only get my code to run if I save my folder in the default c:\Users\Jamie\<full path>. My question is in two parts
1. How can I run simple scripts from anywhere else (say, my documents)
2. Can I edit paths somehow such that typing % python <script name> will run my script, from the default C:\Users\Jamie, or otherwise?
Sorry if the questions themselves contain errors in understanding, i haven't used the Windows command before
