# Lots of changed printer paths....

Q: Lots of changed printer paths....

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.

Thanks.

Hi everyone,

I got a new HP Pavilion laptop with Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit. When I booted it up for the first time, there was already an administrator account on it named after the company who sent me the laptop. I renamed the user account and the computer to my name. Unfortunately, this change was not taken over by my profile folder or the profile folder paths. For example, if I go to the C drive and to "Users", then there's the Public folder and underneath it is my profile folder (which has a lock icon) - stuck with the previous name. I can access it and see the picture, music, desktop etc. folders with my stuff in them. I wanted to save a Word Document, and the username in the path was the old one, so that's how I first noticed the issue.

I searched and asked around and found out that I'd have to create a new user account and delete the old one to fix this issue. I came across two sets of instructions. I found one set over here in this Microsoft document for Windows 7 - it is about replacing a corrupted user profile, and it says that one would need THREE user accounts to do it...Very confusing...obviously, my user profile is not corrupt, but it looks like I have to replace it:
Fix a corrupted user profile

The second set of instructions I came across simply said that I'd have to do the following:

1) rename my current account back to the old unwanted name

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

Hi there

I have no idea why but all of a sudden lots of fonts suddenly look different when I'm browsing the web. Weather it be Chrome, FireFox or Internet Explorer, the problem remains the same. I have not made any changes to my computer recently or installed any software. I have searched all over the internet but cannot find a solution.

I have attached a few images so you can understand when I say that fonts do not look right. I believe they are the same fonts as they should be however there is no smoothness to them anymore and in some cases the font appears to have "shifted" place slightly with some characters being chopped off or different sizes.

It does appear to be doing it solely with any type of font such as "google fonts", the problem really does seem to be across the board but also quite random as some fonts such as Arial still appear to display fine.
I have the latest version of Chrome, FireFox or Internet Explorer, all windows updates are upto date and I'm running Windows 7.

Please let me know if you have any ideas

^ visit site here to see how fonts should be displayed

Please give this a try http://windows.microsoft.com/en-us/windows7/change-your-font-settings, and if that does not work please download and run Temp File Cleaner. This program will delete all your temp files, and to run this tool right click on it and select Run As, since it needs to be ran with true administrator rights.

Couldn't find a good spot for this so I'll ask here...

I have an Epson XP800 inkjet that I bought a few years ago and barely use, maybe 20 pages a year. But that doesn't stop the ink from going away. It's so annoying.

Is this normal? Should I move to laser for low volume printing without the cost of cartridges every 6 months?

A:Epson printer using lots of ink

Your experience is one of the reasons I won't have an Epson product anymore, other than for target practice (a scanner that had to be frequently retimed and had lousy software is the other reason). However, any inkjet that doesn't get used frequently is prone to clogged heads due to the ink drying out in them. The printers clear the heads by pumping large amount s of ink through them to blast out the dried ink. Sadly, frequent head clogging, and the subsequent high consumption of ink, is normal for inkjets not used frequently.

Laser printers, on the other hand, do not have that problem. Normally, they can set for weeks or more at a time without being used, then will print something without even a quiet belch. Even though the up front cost is higher aand toner cartridges aren't exactly cheap, the per copy cost is usually much, much less than for inkjets. Also, laser printer printouts will not run if they get wet, unlike most inkjet printouts.

Once you decide to get a laser printer (assuming you do), the next question is whether to get a color laser or B&W. One advantage inkjets do have over laser printers is they will print much better looking photos, when printed on photo paper, than laser printers although the more recent laser color prints do surprisingly well. If you have no real need for color printouts and or rarely make photo prints, it would be more cost effective to just get a B&W laser printer and farm out any photos you need printing to photo labs, such ...

whats the model - there will be a manual online

I maybe a little biased as I have had trouble with a couple of brothers - 1 was only 14mths old and would not clean or print correctly and despite escalating within Brother , they were not interested in helping. I'm pursuing the Euro 6year process but noluck so far.
I used a special cleaning kit - which did not help , fortunately , the kit came with a guarantee refund if it did not work.

Hi

I've got Vista Ultimate 32bit installed and a Brother MFC-9045CDN printer.

I've installed the printer driver twice (is supported) one for b&w printing, one for color printing. The user does not have permissions to manage the printer and therefore cannot change the properties.

Unfortunately when I change the properties using the Administrator account they are still not changed when the user accesses the printer. They are only changed for the Administrator.

How can I change the printer properties for all users by using the Administrator?

Hey:

I had a memory card on my printer mapped as a network location. All was well
for weeks then suddenly I could no longer access the drive. Took a few days
to figure out the address to the printer changed. Is This normal? Anything I
need to know? Having refigured the location, all is well.
(Was \\some ##s\memory_card but the last two #s are now different.)

Thank you,
Ed

It depends - is your printer set up to obtain an IP address automatically from DHCP server, or is it set for a static IP?

Normally, networked printers are set up with Static IPs so this type of thing doesn't make them go into hiding all of a sudden....

Hi guys,

My MIL printed her Avon invoice to a Quicken PDF printer??? And now she can't switch it back. I don't remember well enough to talk her through it and she needs it pretty bad. She's 80 and doesn't really understand what has happened and she lives a long way from here. Can someone give me a play by play to restore her HP Printer? In the control panel it shows two printers one is a PDF and the other is her HP. The HP shows "Not Ready". It has been too long for me and I don't have an XP machine here at the house to look at. I just thought I could have her delete the PDF printer but everytime she prints her Avon stuff, it will probably happen again. She says she has tried to print numerous things today and they just keep going to a queue.

Thanks,
Andy

Hello,

My printer worked fine up until a few days ago. It is an HP B210a setup over the network with it's own IP address. My roommate started printing on it without asking me. He said it was an "accident" but I'm not sure how that could be the case. Anyways, I tried searching for a solution, like a password and in my haste I changed the permissions without thinking first. I made ChaCha(admin), me, have full permission and denied everyone else. Boom, printer no longer showed up in devices and printers. Spent all day yesterday installing and uninstalling the drivers. Used HP's troubleshooting utilities to no avail. When my roommate came home and turned on his computer a few days later, the print jobs I had sent started printing through his computer. He removed the device from his computer but that didn't help either.

The printer shows up under Device Manager>Imaging Devices but not under Devices and Printers. HP's diagnostic utility comes up with 2 errors, the first is that the driver is conflicting which makes no sense since I am downloading the driver straight from their website, using their software, and two it shows the printer as offline. I've used the recommended software etc., to try to do a fresh install. The printer shows up when you go to print something but as offline. Did my roommate hijack my printer or did I mess up by changing the permissions to only me. Why, as the admin, can I not see/communicate with my printer? Is there a way to set the permiss...

Hi, my name's Katie and I'm having major virus/spyware,adware,malware removal issues! I

have a lot of different things going on here, and can't make any sense of it. I tried

following other people's solved threads, but they didn't solve my issues, so I guess I need

personalized help. I have Windows security running (well, I usually do when it's working

properly,) and I run Ad-Aware and Spybot regularly, but it appears that they cannot solve

my issue. Anyway, here's a list of things that have been happening to my computer since the

virus happened...

1. I KNOW the virus was contracted in AIM. An IM came in from a friend with only a link. It

didn't look suspicious to me, so I clicked it, and all of a sudden I had IMEd everyone in

them before My Computer's virtual memory ran out and crashed AIM on me.

2.When the computer starts up, sometimes a default background appears before the logon

screen with the user accounts appears.

3.After logon, the same thing in general happens every time. Spybot comes up with a bunch

of messages saying that there is a registry change to my homepage or something else

happening. I deny it, and it denies it over and over again to seemingly no avail. A .txt

file appears on the desktop. I have never opened this file, don't know what it is, and

This time, this is my mom's computer and she didn't have a firewall (until now) and so this thing was infected beyond anything I have seen!I will be posting the log below, but first let me tell you a few things. I did follow the preparation instructions as best as I could, however, there were certain things I could not do.Ad-Aware:I kept running Ad-Aware and rebooting and it kept finding 50+ new critical items every time. I then disconnected the internet access to the computer and ran it. This way I got it down to 2 entries it said it couldn't removed and it couldn't remove them even after restarting.Spybot:A similar thing happened with Spybot, except I connected to the internet only to download the software and updates and disconnected to do the scan and fixes. Spybot also said it couldn't fix certain items, EVEN AFTER doing it during rebooting.I then ran HouseCall, Bit Defender and Avert Stinger (Panda was taking too long and I wasn't sure if it was stalled).Then, I installed ZoneAlarm and Finally ran HijackThis.Hopefully you can help me get this thing cleaned up and it top shape soon!

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. 1 more replies Answer Match 40.32% Applications won't run because the paths can't be found but the files and folders all exist More replies Answer Match 40.32% there two windows xp professionals installe dmy pc .

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." Even though I typed 'Environment' in my search bar to find it.

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? Thanks! A:Help understanding CBS.log file paths Hello Southbound, and welcome to Seven Forums.

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.

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.

Can someone please tell me how to interpret this path? Thanks, royeo A:How do you interpret paths like C:\DOCUME~1\... Hi. 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. 2 more replies Answer Match 39.9% Hi guys.

I tried plugging in my digital camera today, and though it did not come up, I hunted down the Removable Disk (E) drive, which I figured would open it. It told me that I had to choose a program to open it with, so I chose some kind of picture viewer. Then all the icons on my desktop turned into said picture viewer, and I cannot open anything but that program from the desktop. Also, when I go into Programs and try to open them, they don't work there either. Help! I am using Windows 7. I have tried System Restore but it told me that it could not complete it and gave me some kind of error message with 0x80070005. It recommended that I turn off my protection or whatever to complete it, but I have Norton 360 and no idea how to turn it off! Any help is greatly appreciated- we just bought this computer in November and now my husband is ticked off! A:Solved: accidentally changed removable disk, now changed every program? Welcome Tuckersmom ! When I connect my camera to either of our computers, the camera itself indicates on the viewer how to handle the pictures.... To replace the icons on the desk top, right click any empty place and select refresh, I think this should restore them for you. My daughter uses Norton 360 and we have found that it disables the system restore. She does regular backups with Norton 360. If you have done that, you should be able to restore from one of those backups. GOOD LUCK Let us know how it goes.

Now slower than ever trying to start up I have read your various threads and none I found discuss these errors just suddenly apprearing. This computer was a built from scratch by an IT friend of mine who has moved away I have all the documentation that came with it. I have tried system restore back one week did not work, I was following ASK tech page guide and downloaded REGSERVO program came back with 6800 errors and wanted 39.00, well as you know the economy is in the tank and I do not have the extra money, but i do have the extra time if someone could walk me through what to do. I use Norton utilities and clean the drive/registries/and explorer weekly. Please send any advise possible Thank you NascarLady A:sudden error message CPU has been changed or CPU Ratio changed failed REGSERVO is a Rogue program that tells you, you have problems and "we will fix them for you for$39.00!" "But. Wait! for an extra amount for shipping and handling we will really screw your Windows installation up!"

Of course they make you wait until they find the registry errors to tell you that you have to pay $39.00. I just did a google search on REGSERVO and the only ones that give RegServo good reviews are, and hear is the drum roll, Regservo itself. Stay away from any of these programs that say they will fix your registry then want money to fix the problems they found. Also there is no need to run any registry cleaner. More often than not it will not help your problem or speed up your computer, and can indeed break your registry to the extent of having to reinstall windows.

A:[SOLVED] changed one thing to open with a different application and it changed everyt It sounds like what you've done is associate a .lnk file (shortcut type) with an application and now all shortcuts will run with that application. The avi file you were referring too may be just that as well: a shortcut. This has also been known to be caused by a malware infection, in which case if you suspect it, you'll have to report it to our security team in the appropriate Virus/Trojan/Spyware Help subforum.

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?

But today I needed to access a share (\\servername\share) but when I went to type it, it came up cannot connect. We're on a domain with AD, and noticed in eventvwr that GP not processing: The processing of Group Policy failed. Windows attempted to read the file \\internal.domain\SysVol\internal.domain\Policies\{5682A7A2-6BAE-4655-8DB6-7CAF8ECC6042}\gpt.ini from a domain controller and was not successful. Group Policy settings may not be applied until this event is resolved. This issue may be transient and could be caused by one or more of the following: a) Name Resolution/Network Connectivity to the current domain controller. b) File Replication Service Latency (a file created on another domain controller has not replicated to the current domain controller). c) The Distributed File System (DFS) client has been disabled. Also would not map network drives. Anyways, ended up doing a system restore to a known working point in time, and that seemed to work, until I rejoined the computer to domain (since it had lost the trust relationship because of the system restore), but after a few group policies processed, and a couple critical updates were installed, it broke again. So now I unplug from the network at bootup, login, then plug network back in, and it seems to be a workaround for now, but hopefully it's only a temporary one. Anyone have any ideas? A:Network paths (UNC \\server) broke I would check DNS and that your clock is set to match your domain controller. 2 more replies Answer Match 39.48% I just ran a customized install of Office Ultimate 2007.

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?

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

A:Using PATHS in the command line in Windows 7

so you want to do this in command prompt?

python c:\whatever\subfolder\somescript.py

Where is python.exe located?

You want it to work for your account only I assume (?)
