Shortcut Target Box Is Grayed Out, How To Enable Use Of Box?


Every time i try to unchecked the box in read-only then click apply and exit the window but then go back into the window to check to see if it did what i wanted it to do, the read-only box is checked when i want it unchecked. I need it unchecked so i can "edit" a file for a game so i can download all the images and have the game run faster. I've googled the problem for about a day and one solution seemed possible but a error comes up that says that the acl is a invalid structure.

So i googled that problem and the solution came to deleting all the acls' and putting yourself as the only admin or something along those lines. So i was wondering is their a way to get the read-only box unchecked and stay unchecked, so that i can affect the target box since it is grayed out?

Shortcut - Right Click - Properties - Target - Can't Type Into Target

I just purchased a dell netbook, with windows 7. I am installing a game called guild wars. As most fans of the game know, you can download the entire game client and updates, by adding the command -imag at the end of the "target" under properties after right clicking on the guild wars shortcut. I was successful on installing the game, but i can't type in the "target" box in order to type -imag at the end of the directory (c://. -Imag) if anyone can help me with this problem i would really appreciate it. Once again the question is, how do i make it so i can actually type in the "target" box?

Xp Mode: Enable Integration Feature Is Grayed Out

I had bought windows 7 and found i could not run my autocad program on it. I then bought windows 7 professional with xp mode so i could run autodad. Today i open my virtual pc and i get a window stating it could not enable integration features. When checking details it states: you can either try again to enable these features, or continue without these features. You can use the tools menu to enable integration features later. Integration features enable sharing. Well i click on tools and the option to enable integrations is grayed and i can not change anything. I check my start menu and i have two window xp mode short cuts. One opens and none of my program icons are there, the other won't open. Any help would be great. I am not a wizard, so lots of details please.

Usb 2.0 Tv Box Driver

I bought a new tv tuner card(mron). Installed all required drivers provided by the company. When tv plugged in, the os is unable to detect the drivers. The error msg is "device driver software was not installed successfully". And when clicked on the software it is giving "failed to initialize tv". The same device is working in winxp. I tried to run the tv software in winxp using program compatibility utility from action center. But, that didn't solve the problem. Can some one help me on this.

Win 7 Vs Media Box

I have a generic media box connected to my network and my television. When the video server computer used windows xp mce, the media box connected to shared folders on the computer. When the video server computer used vista home premium, the media box required a user id and password. Entering the same user id and password i used to logon to the computer allowed the media-box to connect to shared folders on the computer.

No the video server computer uses windows 7 home premium, the media box requires a user id and password. Entering the same user id and password i use to logon to the computer does not work. Creating a new user account does not work. Removing the password does not work. Changing the network security settings so that no password is required does not work. The windows 7 computer's network settings are:

Turn on network discovery turn on file and printer sharing turn on sharing so anyone with network access can read and write files in the public folders media streaming options are 'allow all' enable file sharing for devices that use 40- or 56bit encryption turn off password protected sharing use user accounts and passwords to connect to other computers. I use an xbox 360 to show avi videos, pictures, mp3 music, and recorded tv, however most of my videos are in vob format. I realize that i could convert all of my vob files to avi files, but i would lose the dvd functions, and i have a lot of videos in vob format.

I used to have the functionality i wanted in windows xp mce, and also in vista (even though it required a logon). I would like to have exactly the same functionality using windows 7.
My preferred option is to disable or completely remove the windows 7 network security, so that a shared folder is totally unsecured as it was in windows xp.

Ie7 Closes When Clicking A List Box

Ie 7 closes when a specific list box on a page is clicked. This does not happen for any other list box and only happens on certain machines. The shop runs xp pro sp2 and uses ie 7 across the board. The same users can log onto a different machine and click the same list box (or any list box for that matter) and the problem does not persist on that machine. Security settings have been set to medium-low on the machines with the issue so this doesn't seem to be the issue. Is there a setting or other ap that could be causing this issue for these three machines?

Import Pictures And Video Box Will Not Close

About a month ago i started having a random issue with the "import pictures and video" box. The computer completes the import of pictures and video from my digital camera, a noise tells me it is done, but the box remains on the screen. I click on "cancel" and then "yes" when it asks if i want to cancel importing. Yet the box still remains. It remains even if i disconnect the cord to my camera. I have to end the program using the task manager. I am doing nothing differently to have caused this problem. I import pictures about 4 times a week. Any ideas?

Randomly Empty Windows Search Box Will Pop Up

Randomly a empty windows search box will pop up. The box says " > search results" in the address bar and "to begin type in the search box" in the main screen of the box. The box pops up randomly and sometime as soon as it is x out. There's is no bar with options or tools to deactivate.

I have replaced the key board thinking it may have been commanding window to search. I have updated all software. This happens completely random. This typically happens in spurts lasting around 10mins. It happens often, around four times a day. Im off and on my desktop all day long. The box is empty and has the search in the right corner and an address bar to the left of that taking up 3/4 of the top permitted of the box.

I have never had a problem like this with windows that i cannot figure out how to eliminate. This has been happen since i loaded windows about three weeks now. If someone can point me in a direction it would be helpful.

Canon Mp460 Printer Dialogue Box Missing

I have windows 7 home premium, 64-bit os. I also have the canon mp460 printer. While the printer prints when connected to the computer, the dialogue box which used to tell me how much ink is left back on vista no longer works. I tried playing around with the printer settings but i think the issue is on the side of the os. Note that the dialogue box pops-up and shows the correct stats on my laptop which has the old xp. My question: how can i see the level of ink in the printer's cartridges everytime i print something?

I bought the student windows 7 upgrade. When i downloaded the upgrade and tried to run it, it came up with an error: unloading the box - the application cannot find one of its required files, possibly because it was unable to create it in the folder.

Sharing Printer With Linux Box Connected To Win 7 Pc Using Crossover Cable

How do i share a printer with a linux box connected to my windows 7 pc using a crossoevr cable? I have what seems to be a blockage since i upgraded my winxp pc to windows 7. Prior to the upgrade i had a successful connection using a crossover cable such that printing was achieved from a linux mintv6 installation to a canon ip4000 printer - usb connected to my winxp pc. Since the upgrade, each of the two pc's can 'see' each other, can be pinged ok but all attempts to set up a print path fail as i'm asked for a user name and password on the linux box and despite trying all combinations that may be valid [i think] i cannot establish a print path. Any ideas or do i seek help from the linux community? It used to work and the main 'change is that to windows 7

Save Target As Issue

From time to time i would like to be able to save pictures or mp3's, but the "save target as" feature is dull. What setting do i change to enable that "save target as" feature?

I can left-click on the link, but it will be opened directly by it's default program. If it's an mp3, i don't want to have to hunt for it on my hard drive. Ie8 is already optimized. I've already tried deleting everything in the browsing history. I've tried defaulting everything in the general, security, privacy, and advanced tabs. What's next to try?

Ie8 Link With Target Not Work

I have windows 7 running ie8. After i installed some software, some links in web pages are no longer working. I notice that those "a"links have a "target" with something like "_blank", which would open a new ie window or a tab. Basically, the phenomenon is, when i click that link, a new tab is created with caption "connecting to ". The tab is always empty, and the address box shows the url of the original page.

However, for those links which open the web page in the same ie window, seem working fine. I would like to repair the ie8 or windows 7. But i donít know how. Itís greatly appreciated if someone can provide some solution.

I have tried with various file types but all access to save or save-as are denied. How do i fix this? I thought that home-groups were supposed to make things easier? Not sure how to paste an image of the folder permissions but in effect it says:

Moved Target All Programs Under Start Menu

I moved the target where "all programs" under the start menu points to. How do i restore it? I recently installed windows 7 professional over windows vista home premium. A windows. Old folder was created on my hard drive which stored all my previous files. Once the installation was complete, i moved all of my files back to where they should be. However, my program files (c:program files and c:program files (x86)) were not showing up in the "all programs" list under the start menu.

So in an attempt to remedy this, i opened the "all programs" folder by right-clicking on it, right-clicked the programs folder, then on the properties tab changed the location target to point to c:program files. Unfortunately, this did produce the desired results. Each program folder lists all sub-folders and files associated with that program (not just a shortcut to the program itself).

So how do i restore it back to the way it was? The original programs folder is no longer there. Also, if you know of the right way to have my programs appear in the "all programs" list under the start menu, that would be much appreciated.

Bug - Bsd On Target Host When Connecting To Win7 Shares

When connecting to a network share on a windows 7 professional host, the†target host (server) immediately blue-screens. This behavior is repeatable and consistent.

Scenario:

Two windows 7 professional hosts were tested. One host had a fresh load using the hp standard image. The second host had a fresh load using the microsoft retail dvd. Both hosts are members of a windows server 2003 r2 hosted activedirectory domain running in native mode. Default network settings are used on both hosts, obtaining ipv4 addresses via dhcp. Domain administrative accounts were used in all scenarios.

Tests were performed in the following manner:

1) windows 7 professional client to the c$ administrative share on a windows 7 professional target host.
2) windows 7 professional client to an explicit, read-only share on a windows 7 professional target host.
3) windows xp client to the c$ administrative share on a windows 7 professional target host.
4) windows xp client to†an explicit, read-only share on a windows 7 professional target host.

In all scenarios, the target windows 7 professional host immediately blue-screens. This behavior could be duplicated 100% of the time.

Problem Adding A Favorite Directly To Target Folder Selected

I just upgraded to ie 8, and i'm experiencing an irritating problem when having to add several websites to the same target sub-folder in my favorites. Maybe i've been spoiled by the convenience of an older version of internet explorer where the "add a favorite" pop-up would automatically be set to the subfolder that i had selected when adding another related website prior to the one at hand. I'm talking about the folder displayed where it says "create in".

That was a great function, because usually if i'm searching some information on a subject i want to add interesting websites one by one to the folder that i've specified for that subject. It's a time saver when the target folder is already set to the one that you've justset it towith your most recent add. Otherwise you have to go through all your folders and subfolders again to find the same target folder every time you want to add another website to that folder.

I know it doesn't matter to those people who just have a few folders. But if you use the internet as your own personal encyclopedia, creating folders and sub-folders for all the information that interests you, it's important to be able to navigate through it easily and save information easily in the right order and place. So my question is if there is any way i can enable that function by changing some settings perhaps? And how can i do that? Now it's just always set to the default folder"favorites".

File Transfer From Mac In Target Disk Mode To Win 7 Via Firewire

i'm trying to transfer my music collection from a mac running osx onto my windows 7 laptop pc.

Have just forked out for a firewire cable and am trying to get that working.

Have switched the mac into "target disk mode" which makes it behave just like an external hard drive and plugged it into my laptop via firewire.

Windows 7 recognizes an "sbp2 compliant ieee 1394 device" has been plugged in.

However - i cannot browse the mac's files. Under devices and printers the h: drive appears but it is not browsable.

Have tried all three ieee 1394 drivers, and interestingly "1394 ohci compliant host controller (legacy)" driver is the only one where a "browse" tab appears in the devices and printers bit. However when i open the drop down, a h: appears, but it is greyed out and not clickable.

Any ideas?

Cannot Enable Win 7 Firewall

I recently purchased a new hp laptop with windows 7 home premium. However, i cannot activate my firewall. When i go into my firewall settings from the control panel, it doesn't even allow me to click the 'turn windows firewall on or off' option to the left. Now, it stated in my firewall settings that "these settings are being managed by vendor application norton firewall provider".

So i thought perhaps my norton firewall was interfering with it, so i turned off its smart firewall. But i still can't turn on my windows firewall. In fact, i cannot click most of the options in my firewall settings at all (turn firewall on/off, restore defaults, change settings etc). The only thing i can click is the advanced settings and troubleshoot.
