Here's how it looks to me: Windows 7 and Office 2010 both support huge sets of file properties which include virtually anything one might want to record. They aren't the same file properties, though.
A somewhat smaller set is supported by both Windows 7 and Office 2010. An even smaller set actually are the same property in both places, so that a value set is one place is visible in the other.
A vanishingly small subset of those are fully supported, so that values can be set in either place and are visible in either place.
For example, I can set a document file's Authors and Title properties in Word 2010 and view them in Windows Explorer. If I open a Properties dialog for the file, I can see the values and change them.
But if I set a file's "Date completed" property in Word and display its "Date completed" property in Windows Explorer, it's blank. The property has the same name in both places, but apparently it isn't the same property.
W.E.'s Properties box doesn't even display this property, presumably because it has no value, and the UI consequently won't let me set it-- catch 22.
Word 2010 lets me set the Language Property. W.E. displays a Language property, but it's not the same one -- set it in Word and it's still empty in W.E. W.E.'s Properties dialog displaysLanguage even though it's empty, but won't let me set it.
Is there something I don't understand about how file properties are used? If not, it appears that they're only about 10% implemented.
what I got so far.
I want to Start a separate window to run a specified program or command.
START "Program Files\AutoCAD Architecture 2009\acad.exe"
"S:\ACA 2009 Support\Templates\CA_Model_Template.dwt"
"C:\windows\system32\softpub.dll is either not designed to run on windows or it contains an error. Try installing the program again using the original installation media or contact yoursystem administrator or the software vendor for support."
I have tried repairing and reinstalling itunes. I uninstalled every single apple product before retrying the install. I even tried replacing the softpub.
Basically, my only option seems to be restoring my machine to factory settings, which I am really trying to avoid. I'd say screw itunes and get something else but I have an iphone
I am running Windows 7 home premium edition service pack 1 on an Asus PC.
However, on the Win 7 laptop from time to time I will plug in one of the ext hard drives and it doesn't show up. I know how to find it and get a drive letter assigned but does anyone have any idea why this is happening.
I have two ext hard drives and it has happened to both of them.
I have three 2TB MyBook external USB devices, so I checked with Western Digital to see what this is all about. They said it is not essential, and that if my USB drives are working fine (they are), I can ignore it.
But a window keeps popping up to tell me that it needs to be installed.
How can I remove an item from the list of updates (without changing the settings I have now)?
Can this be done?
I have several Windows 7 machines, all able to remote desktop to each other no problems.
I added two Windows XP machines to the network, and could not remote desktop to them.
Went through all the troubleshooting, and realised they have Windows Firewall enabled on them. So I went in and ticked the box in the Exceptions. This still did not work.
I shortly discovered I could connect if I used their IP addresses, but not if I used their machine names.
I later discovered that if I turned off the firewall completely, the connection worked no issues.
The answer lies in the Exceptions entry for File and Print Sharing. You don't have to tick this box entirely if you do not want to, but there are two ports in there that need to be openfor Windows to locate the machine by its NetBios name: 137 and 139.
I realised this when I read the below KB article:
It shows that those ports are used by the local machines NetBios name service. So you will have to open up more than just port 3389 in the firewall if you want to connect by machine name.
Is there a way I can fix this? I have other database links on my desktop and they all work, except this one.
Just recently (in the last couple of weeks) any file I save to the desktop does not show up visibly until I hit F5 to refresh the screen. It is a bit annoying when I am researching something and saving a lot of pictures or PDFs and leave before I hit F5.
Is this possible it connects flawlessly the other person still needs to work on particular program so login screen is preventing this.
My desktop OS is Win 7 Pro with SP1.
All 3 computers are designated Workgroup.
I just noticed that on my computer if I open Network and Sharing Centre and click Homegroup in the left pane, and then click "Leave the Homegroup" I am told I cannot. How can I leave Homegroup?
All 3 computers can see the shared folders on the other 2, but my friend's laptop and desktop cannot open the shared folders on my desktop. The access denied etc. message comes up. How can I resolve this problem?
