I have to set an environment variable for a program.
Could someone tell me what this is and what is PATH and how to set it?


A:HELP!! how to set enviroment variable? how to set path?

First ... Path is the list of folders that Windows will search, in addition to the current folder, when a command is entered in the console (command prompt).

To see the other environment variables, Right-Click on My Computer, select Properties, click the Advanced tab, and you'll see a button at the bottom called "Environment Variables".

Be very careful! A misstep here can cause trouble.

I mistakenly deleted the contents of a user's account folder and was unable to replace the sub-folders manually or by pasting empty ones from another account. If I try to use the account to save files, I just get an error message saying that the folder xxx or file path doesn't exist, depending on where I am trying to save them. This is not just a long filename error and I am afraid that I have caused problems for the user that would affect any Windows 8 account he opens in future, because of Microsoft syncing. What do you suggest?

A:How to reset a user's deleted sub-folders/file paths?

Do you mean you've deleted the entire user folder in the root of C:\Users?

If so, just forget about it, unless you need to restore actual data. Simply create a new user after deleting the old one:

net user /delete DeletedUserNameHere

You can see the list of user names with

I bought a Windows 8 laptop, ASUS Q500A, and reformatted it with Windows 7.
I went into the BIOS and used "Restore Defaults" and now all Boot Option Priorities are deleted.

Each time I boot the laptop, it automatically goes to BIOS (or UEFI).

I tried inserting the Windows 7 disc so I can access Startup Repair or Command Prompt but it freezes before it could get anywhere even when I tried it with an external CD/DVD drive.

I cannot get the laptop to boot to the hard drive or CD drive at all,
please tell me how I can reset the boot option priorities so it will be boot to the hard drive again.

Thank you.

I am also facing a similiar issue, like given in the thread - Cannot delete shortcut file

I cant deleted some invalid paths and shortcuts in the system....
Here when I open any application and try to insert or open a file for that application, I am facing the problem.

For Example,
In VLC Player, I click on Media --> Open File

This gives you the Box to select the file you want and in the bottom of that small window in the " File name " box, you will be having a drop down box to select the file.
Here all the deleted files are listed with the file name and path, which was deleted months ago...
When you select the file it says, "Path does not exist, try again"
So, I think all the invalid shortcuts are stored some where in the system, which displays there.
So we need to deleted that particular cache.
I found out that there is something called " Indexed Cache " in Vista, which saves all the shortcuts as the files are stored.
I need to find out how to delete the file shortcuts from that location.
Please help.

Similiar issue is there in Outlook 2007, when I compose a new message and insert file.
It gives the drop down box like the above issue with all the deleted files path.

I tried rebuilding the Indexing Options as advised before.
It didnt work.

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

2) I think the first issue is related with the second issue.  I have deleted some recovery partitions by mistake.  This might be the reason why I can't use the recovery options when I go to 'Change PC Settings'.

Dear friends,

I cannot use the recover options in Windows 8.1 because it says 'Could not find recovery environment'. My computer is a DELL XPS 8500.

I think this issue is related to another issue. My computer has 2 hard drives: SSD 256 Hard Drive on which my factory image (Windows 8.1) is installed and a 2 TB Hard Drive. Last week I was attempting to do a dual boot on my computer by installing Windows 7 on my 2TB Hard Drive. Something went wrong and both hard drives changed their numbers. The 2TB Hard Drive became Disk No. 0 while the SSD256 Hard Drive became Disk No. 1. I formatted the 2TB Hard Drive and now I have only Windows 8.1 installed on the SSD 256 Hard Drive which is Disk 1 instead of Disk 0

I took a screenshot of my disk management to better understand what I am saying.

I think this issue is related with one or more of these options:
a) diskpart b) recovery partition or c) windows os is installed on disk 1 instead of disk 2.

What can I do to solve this issue?

Hi repoman,

It sounds like those user profiles are corrupt. Back up all files the other two users have and then delete the accounts. Then recreate the accounts as you like and try it again. Definately worth a shot...

I looked on the Microsoft Knowledge Base and they showed Service pack 2 was supposed to fix that issue. If you haven't upgraded to SP2, and want to, I would make sure your system is as clean from viruses, and adware/malware/spyware as possible. Always good to be up to date anyways...

I've been looking on the worlds greatest text book and am unable to find a solution. I'm using a retail version of Windows 8 Pro and am creating my on refresh images. I can perform a refresh just fine through the PC settings however after bit locker encryption I cannot use the refresh feature; in setting bit locker, it says "You will no longer be able to use Windows Recovery Environment unless it is manually enabled and moved to the system drive".

The Problem: I cannot find on the internet how to manually enable or move a Windows Recovery Environment so that I can use the refresh feature with bit locker encryption.

When I was using the manufacture upgraded OEM I was able to use the refresh feature with bit locker encryption, but not the retail version. I don't want to use a USB thumb-drive to house the recovery environment, I just want it on the hard-drive.

I found the convenience of using the refresh feature over image backup is that it wouldn't format the drive to restore the image, thus loosing the encryption. the refresh feature maintains encryption.

Hello there,
I am a Systems Engineer trying to find a fix for the 1068 error: the dependency service or group failed to start

I have looked at all the forums and previous posts with people having similar issues but none of the fixes have worked.
Resetting the TCP/IP stack has not fixed this issue & neither has system restore.

My issue has happened on 3 machines and the only connection I can find is when you connect Windows 7 Professional to a Widows 2003 Domain.

There seems to be little documentation on weather you need to upgrade the domain controllers from 2003 to 2008 before attempting to add Windows 7 into the domain.

The corruption seems to start once the machine is on the domain and Windows attempts to install any program or run windows updates which is becoming very frustrating.

I have created multiple hard drive clones so i can revert back to a working state to aid me when trying to work around this.

With these Issues outstanding I can not think about upgrading the network from XP & 2003 until these issues are fixed.

Can someone else let me know if they have had a similar problem when trying to upgrade there environment to Windows 7 and server 2008

A:Error 1068: the dependency service or group failed to start. - Buisness Enviroment

Hi Anton,
Did Windows 7 joined the domain? Have you narrowed down which service failed with error 1068? The error code indicates one service's dependency service or system component
fails to start.
I suggest checking the following services first.
Check service
1. Click Start, type Services.msc in Start Search bar, and then press Enter.

2. In the right pane, double-click Microsoft Network Inspection.
3. In the Startup type list, click Automatic, click Apply, click Start, and then click OK.

4. Also check the following services.
Function Discovery Resource Publication
Desktop Window Manager Session Manager
Network Connections
Network List Service
Network Location Awareness
Network Store Interface Service
If you find any service cannot be started with the error, please let me know the service name and error exactly.
In addition, since the issue is related to Server. I also suggest confirming the issue with Server side.

Packard Bell Imedia

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 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,

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.

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

So, naturally, I try to find/open the Environments and Paths thing again, right? Nope. I can't open that either:

I no longer use Dropbox; so I would like to move them all to D:\MyOwnDocuments

Problem is that I have many portable programs there, and also program files and program data for programs running from my C drive. Not to mention various other shortcuts to documents or folders in D:\Dropbox\MyOwnDocuments

Is there a quick way to check which programs / shortcuts need to be changed? Or (better) is there a way to change these paths automatically?

Thanks for any input.

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,

I use WinAso Registry Optimizer; when I run it my computer crashes when it gets to Invalid File Paths, but when I remove the invalid file paths flag, it completes the process just fine. I would like some advice on correcting invalid file paths...thanks.

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.

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

When I first installed Win 7 I simply went with the default user name of "Owner". I wouldn't mind changing it now but I'm concerned about the effect on my shortcuts and so on.

If I rename it, will Windows go through and automatically update all the shortcuts and program paths and so on? My gut reaction is "Of course it will" but I've learned to be cautious with Windows! Will I end up with a lot of tidying up to do?

A:Will changing username mess up paths?

Only the username will be changed. The c:\users\<username> path does not get changed and this can lead to more confusion.

Better method:

1) Create two new accounts. One in the username you want, and one can even call it TEMP if you like.

2) Log in as TEMP. Use Windows Easy Transfer to migrate all files and settings from your old account to the new one you just created.

3) When this is complete, log in as your new user and make sure everything is there and working.

4) Delete your old user and TEMP.

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.

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:

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?

Hi All,

I have installed RocketDock on my computer and I want use animated icons to launch just about everything I need to do. They require a direct path. I can't create a "sound" shortcut and then change it to an animated icon, as far as I know.

The path for control panel is: C:\Windows\system32\control.exe

I'm looking for the path for the "sound" menu (playback tab, specifically).

I also want the paths for:

Not sure how to open on playback tab, try %windir%\system32\sndvol.exe then click on the icon for system sounds for example.

On my desktop-computer i have shared some folders with my home network. Then i changed their paths, as i reorganized myself. Now it seems, when I acces the network, those folders paths dont seem to be updated, as i cant access them.

I can now of course "unshare", rename and share them again, which makes them again accessible through the network, but the old "folder names" still remain. why is that, how can i correct it?

Same problem with some old "synched folders".

Curious, where do the old 'folder names' remain? Just in the drop down menu under 'Map network drive ...'?

If so those paths are saved in your registry.

I've had the asian language pack installed on my laptop for awhile now and I know of a similar issue that involves the Korean won symbol, fortunately that never happened to me and I use my computer to type Korean frequently. I was attempting to get a program to run in Japanese to help out one of my friends, and after a restart; anywhere there's a file path it shows the &#65509; instead of \.

I know there's no difference aside from appearance, but it's really annoying to look at it.

I've uninstalled the program and looked around the Regional and Language options, policy settings, and about anywhere I can think of, maybe I missed it somewhere, but I can't find a way to revert it. Can anyone help? Thanks.

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?

There is an Excel App on our network that gets used by multiple users. In this app there are some VLookups that pull information from other spreadsheets. The problem we are having is that the physical paths in the VLookups are being changed to relative paths. Instead of using L:\Files\somefile.xls it changes to \\server\share\somefile.xls.

When this happens the VLookup stops working, it's odd because both paths are legetimate but only the one with the physical path works. This is happening on several different spreadsheets and the formulas have to continualy remapped.

All users are using Office 97 but the OS are mixed, Win ME, 2000 and 98. Any ideas?

Here are the Vlookups:

=VLOOKUP($C18,'L:\shared files\[EmpDataLog.xls]RATE'!$B$10:$AZ$642,5)
