Printing Dos Program Through Usb Net Use Command


We just upgraded to windows 7 from xp. We need to print from a dos program

Through a usb port. We were ok with xp with the command below:

Net use lpt1: \computernamesharename /persistent:yes

It keeps saying "password is incorrect" about the command is typed. There is no password for this username. I did set up the security. Is there a bug in this routine?

Net Use Lpt /persistent:y Command Problem

I have a windows 7 pro pc printing to a printer shared on windows server 2003 r2 sp2 active dir domain. To print from a command prompt, i use the following command:

Net use lpt2 \serversharedprn /persistent:y

I can then use the following command:

Print /d:lpt2 filename. Ext

The command works fine. Problem is, after a while, windows 7 loses lpt2 mapping. I have to issue another net use command (like the above). Under windows xp, the net use command with /persistent option sticks forever but windows 7 keeps losing the mapping. Does anyone know how to fix it?

Verifone Ms Dos Program Problem

I use the computer for work. I use a ms-dos program for loading pos terminals by verifone. The ms-dos program wont load on windows 7. It states the version of this file is not compatible with the version of windows you're running. Check you computer's system information to see whether you need an x86(32-bit) or x64(64-bit) version of the program, and then contact the software publisher. Does this mean that the windows 7 pro version with 64-bit which i have will not work and if so will a 32-bit windows 7 work and is it available? I am using vista now and it works sometimes when not crashing.

Error - There Was A Problem Sending Command To Program

Error message "there was a problem sending the command to the program" when trying to go to a link that is in an e-mailed message. I have no problem accessing links when in explorer, only when trying to get to a linked site from e-mail. This problem just started today, after the latest updates were installed. And it doesn't happen every time! If i retry the link, it'll go through (usually) after 3or 4 tries.

Getting this message when using edit via command prompt - 'edit' is not recognized as an internal or external command, operable program or batch file. I've seen where edit.exe and/or edit.com should be installed in windows/system32. No "edit" files. So what can one use to edit files via the command prompt in windows 7?

Printing To Remote Printer Connected Via Usb To Xp Computer

I am using my c5580 as a remote network printer. The printer is hooked up via a usb cable to my main (xp) server computer. The rest of my (xp & vista) computers are accessing and printing through my wireless network connection with no problem. It is my newly purchased pc with "windows 7" on it. 64 bit that can't print. I setup a new printer by adding a "network printer". It found the hp printer through network search and the drivers loaded ok. When i go to print i get the following message "windows can not print due to the current printer setup, try one or more of the following".

* Check the printer by test page from windows
* Make sure the printer is turned on and on-line - done
* Reinstall the print driver -done

I have loaded all windows updates and went to hp to get the latest printer drivers. Still no luck.

Ms Dos Compatibility Problems

I've been trying to run a rather old programme on my new laptop, the current operating system is window 7 -32 bit, home edition. I am trying to run a programme (originally designed for dos or windows 95) which requires dos to be run full screen, however i keep getting an error message telling me that the system does not support full-screen mode.

Im trying to find a solution that does not require me to partition my hard drive and install an earlier version of windows for the sake of the one programme.

Any suggestions?

Dos On A 64-bit System

I'm in the process of upgrading to a 64 bit laptop. My question is. Can a dos system (e.g. Dr. Dos, caldera dos, ms dos, pc dos, etc. ) Be installed on a laptop with a 64 bit processors 64 bit processors are supposed to be backward compatible to 32 bit architecture, this should be possible, but i haven't found any supporting statements. If anyone has a thought on this subject, it would be greatly appreciated. However, please remember that the nature of the question is can/how and not why - i'm not looking for alternative solutions, only a simple yes or no.

Error - Invalid Ms-dos Function

Whilst trying to copy a outlook mail file from dvd back to a new hard drive the file gets about half copied and i get a "invalid ms-dos function" error. Didn't mr. Bill declare that there are no more old, evil dos left in windows 7? Clicking on the retry button starts over instead of trying to re-read the datablock it is choking upon.

How To Find Java Runtime In Dos On Windows 7?

This is an extract from my registry:

[Hkey_local_machine\software\javasoft\java runtime environment\1. 6]

"Javahome"="g:\\program files (x86)\\java\\jre6"

Not sure why it is showing the double backslash. I've tried various commands (in batch files), such as the following, without success:

- - - -
@Echo off
Set keyname=software\javasoft\java runtime environment\1. 6
Rem set keyname=hkey_local_machine\software\javasoft\java runtime environment

Set cmd=reg query "%keyname%" /s
For /f "tokens=2*" %%i in ('%cmd% ^| find "javahome"') do set java_home=%%j
Set java_home
Pause
- - - -

I know this can be set manually, but this is not what is needed.

Not Enough Storage To Process Command

I have major problem trying to install a new wlan pci card. When i first inserted it into the pc i figured the pnp would take care of everything but no so i installed it manually from the cd, this didn't work either so i tried to install it using a driver from the manufacturers website. The installation finishes and everything but windows still goes to look for drivers and when it doesn't find any i go to look in the device manager and i get the following error code:the drivers for this device are not installed. (Code 28) (but they are)not enough storage is available to process this command.

To find a driver for this device, click update driver. I have about 2, 5gig ram free and about 590 gig of disk space free so that can't be it right?The things i have tried are:running the setup file as administrator, performing a disk cleanup, creating a new account with administrator acces, "telling" windows installer where to find the driver installer. Nothing works. Doe's anyone have any good ideas?

How To Turn Off Monitor Via Command Line ?

How can i turn off the monitor (i.e. , "Put it to sleep") via command line at the push of a button (or any other shortcut not requiring additional software)? I don't like it when, after a pause working on my pc, the screen turns itself off as set up per "power options" on the control panel. That's why i set the threshold fairly high.

Still, when i know i won't be needing the computer for a while, i want to save power and wish the sleep mode could be activated immediately. Turning the display off is not an option, since it has an integrated usb-hub - turning it off completely would disconnect any connected device. Usually though the computer still runs and might need the connected resources.

Ideally, by pushing a button (or starting a program or something), the display would immediately go into sleep mode.

On systems before vista and 7, iirc, executing a command along the lines of:

Rundll32.exe user32.dll, sendmessage (hwnd_broadcast, wm_syscommand, sc_monitorpower, 2);

Would do the trick. The dll would execute the command to put the monitor to sleep. One could create a shortcut or even integrate the command into a batch file, but unfortunately that doesn't seem to work on vista or 7.

Does anybody have an idea on how to do this on windows 7? I would very much try to avoid having to install any additional software to help me out. (There are quite some small applications around, even free ones, that promise to do just that, but i would like to avoid them if possible. And i cannot believe that something this basic that could be done on xp cannot be done anymore on 7!)

Svchost Command Prompt On Login

Whenever i log in, i see a command prompt for install\svchost.exe pop up and run for a few seconds before disappearing. This did not happen in the past and i don't remember making any changes to the system recently. This appears to have no noticeable effects on the system. What is this and why did it start happening? Is it anything to worry about?

Windows Network - Not Enough Storage Available To Process Command

Cannot connect to wireless external drive - "microsoft windows network: not enough storage is available to process this command" error and system running slow after update. I just updated my laptop to windows 7 and am having a few problems. One - everything seems to be running slower (i thought it was supposed to be faster!). More problematic is the fact that i can't access my external hard drive which is networked. It shows it, but when i click on it (it's listed as a z drive), the error "microsoft windows network: not enough storage is available to process this command" shows.

I installed win7 on my husband's laptop the other day with no troubles. His is able to still access the networked drive without a problem and is running great. So great, i went and got it for my laptop. My husband's laptop is running the 64 version of home premium and mine the 32. I used upgrade advisor and fallowed all the recommendations it gave. Including uninstalling itunes. I saved my itunes files to the external drive and can't access them.

I have a hp pavillion dv6000 running webroot security suite.
2. 0 gb ram, t5600 @ 1. 83 ghz, inter core 2cpu

Command Prompt Does Not Display Lan Settings

For a college assignment i have to go to the command prompt and type in 'ipconfig/all'. From there i should be able to see the host name, mac address, default gateway, subnet mask, etc, however. This information does not show. Its either all zeros (in the case of the address)  or its just not there at all. I can go into the network connections and view these details there. But they will not show in the command prompt. I spent 40 minutes on the phone with geeksquad just for the guy to tell me "i dont know what to tell you". Does anyone have any ideas?  This is rather troublesome considering a lot of my work has to consist of accurate screen shots of the command prompt. Thanks in advance!

Cannot Boot In Safe Mode Or Command Prompt

Not sure what the problem is but every mode i try booting in gets a black screen and the brightness of the screen is dimmer however i do get a mouse pointer that i can move around freely. I have an assumption that its a video error and regucure probably messed something up while i was trying to repair broken registry. Currently in kuwait by the way and both safe mode and command prompt is the same way the only thing i seem to be able to use is the f2 setup screen which does not seem to help at all either resetted the settings to default but no progress. Wish i could find a way to fix this without taking cash from my pocket or sending it to a place to reset it to factory settings.
