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?

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?

Edit Command Is Not Recognized As An Internal Or External Command

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?

Persistent Windows Add-on Installer Request

I have vista, i keep getting this persistent request from windows add on installer for permission to install something i've never requested-this thing can come up as much as 25 times per hour. I always click cancel as i believe its malware. It does not say what it wants to install, and i have run every kind of virus/spyware scan imaginable with no indications of a problem.

How do i get this monster to go away-i am sure if i give it permission i will regret it, but it keeps coming up-as often as several times in one minute.

Assigning Lpt/com Port To Usb Device

How to assign lpt/com port to usb device? I am running windows 7 home premium 64-bit. I have old pos (point-of-sale) components with old pos software (registware) that is not working properly. The components i am referring to are:

1. Receipt printer (star; model: sp200-2 )
2. Pole display (logic controls; pd3000 )

They are old components, with parallel and serial cable connections respectively, but i bought usb conversion cables which are used as current connections to computer. The proper drivers are installed and my computer picks up these devices, and show that they are working properly. However, the registware pos software i am running requires me to specify the ports locations in which these devices are connected, and the only options include com and lpt ports (lpt1, lpt2, com1, com2, com3, com4 ).

How can i assign a com/lpt port to these devices so i can get them to function properly with my pos software?

Not Enough Storage Is Available To Process This Command

I got a problem when i installed windows 7. I have an aplicattion that works fine on xp and vista too (i had to disable uac to install my personal aplication), but it doesn't work on 7. I tried the new compatibility sistem and got a new failure. When i run .exe file it goes fine until copy the new files to a temp directory, suddenly a box appears saying "not enough storage is available to process this command". I have about 280gb of free space on hd and 2 gb ram, what should i do?

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.

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.

Which .net Framework Do I Need?

My desktop runs on an original vista installation. On my programs & features i have
.net framework 1. 1, .net framework 1. 1 hotfix (kb929729), and
.net framework 3. 5 sp 1.

Do i need all of these flavors? Something is preventing me from installing this update: microsoft .net framework 1. 1 service pack 1 security update for windows 2000, windows xp, windows vista, windows server 2008, windows 7, and windows server 2008 r2 (kb953297). Which is the real .net framework that i need? And then, how can i safely remove all other unnecessary .net framework flavors?

.net Framework Do You Really Need It?

The other day i deleted the early versions (1. 0 &1. 1) of framework thinking that i did not need them anymore due to there being newer versions installed. My question is three fold.

1. Do you really need this program?
2. If you don't then how best to remove all traces?
3. If you do. I have tried to download them again and can't seem to get them to download.

I got a security update with newer versions and when i went to download them they would not download. I guess because i had deleted earlier versions. I found an article on microsoft update about this problem. It said to download 3. 5 first then go to 1. 1 and back up. I tried this but 3. 5 will not install on my system.

Microsoft.net 3.5.1

I am trying to run auto cabinets software on windows 7 ultimate an get "runtime errors". Upon contacting router cad (the suppliers of the software) i was informed that microsoft.net framework 3. 5. 1 is required. I checked in the control panel under program & features and microsoft.net framework 1. 1 appears and not any other version. When i go to "turn windows features on or off" i notice that only microsoft.net framework 3. 5. 1 appears and is ticked. How is this possible that 3. 5. 1 does not appear in programs and features but appears under "turn windows features on or off"? How do i check to see if 3. 5. 1 is working? If not, how do i install it to work properly?

Net Framework With Rc1

I'm running w7 rc1 on my new thinkpad. All apps work fine except those that seem to rely upon net framework such as schwab's street smart pro which was designed for 2. 0 and is supposedly compatible with 3. 5 in version 4. 20. At first 4. 19 ran fine but when i upgraded to 4. 20 it didn't work at all, although by then i was docked as opposed to running off the undocked laptop (although i don't see how that should make a difference). Also having problems with zinio reader's licensing process. And ssh secure shell won't run. Other than that, very cool.

My specific question is: what version if any of net framework is installed with rc1?

Upgrading .net Framework

When trying to install .net framework 3. 5 in my new pc that has win 7(64) with .net framework 1. 1 pre-installed i get a message part way through the installation process that says: you must use turn windows features on or off in the control panel to install or configure microsoft.net framework 3. 5, what does that mean? It's ambiguous to say the least, what is it? Turn windows features on or turn windows features off ? You can't do both. The installation fails at that point. Should i un=install ver. 1. 1 that came with my new system (win 7 with 64 bit ) and try a installation of ver 3. 5 or . . . ?
