File Sharing Between Xp With Office And Win 7 With Ms Works


File sharing between windows xp with microsoft office and windows 7 with microsoft works word processor and spreadsheets. I work for a small non-profit and just opened our first office. We received a donated rebuilt pc with microsoft xp office products which were compatible with what i had been using at home. Just received an new dell inspiron with windows 7 and the microsoft works programs installed. The systems are wirelessly networked to share files.

However, the new system will not install many of the existing logo images installed in our forms, and when they do install they aren't proportional or different colors. And formatting is often lost in the . Wps files.

I have been able to open files, edit and then re-save in the .doc format, but it is time consuming and doesn't solve the formatting or image issues. I have not been able to figure out how to run the compatibility software.

Setting Up File Sharing

Two desktops both running windows 7 home premium. Got it set up once and it worked great. Then due to problems on pc 2 i did a clean install of windows 7 home premium. The files that i am trying to share reside on pc1. I have the homegroup set up on it and set several files to share and then selected read/write for those files. Printed out the key and went to pc2 to set it up.

Did as instructed on control panel but there is no network and internet but went into network. Thats when it gets crazy as it seems that in trying to join now and put in the password from pc1 it prints out its own password on the screen and says that there are no members in the homegroup.could someone help or point me to a document to read and use?

File Sharing Not Working

I have had the files on my vista home premium desktop set up for over a year as shared files. I could always access them from my laptop. I recently got a new laptop with windows 7 and it immediately could access the files and make changes to them. Today , all of a sudden the files on my desktop are now read only. I go to documents folder and there is a check make in "read only". I unchecked the box and click apply and another dialogue box comes up asking me to click ok to make these shared files.

I click ok and another little window appears and shows progress as attributes of every file in documents is being adjusted. However after that task completes and i go to look at documents properties -the read only box is still checked. I have restarted the desktop and tried to make the change 3 times but no success. If i go to network setting there is a green check mark for file sharing on. Does anyone have any recommendations as to how to fix this.

The only new software put on the laptop has been microsoft home and student office but i don't see where that should have affected anything.

File Sharing On Win 7

I have recently installed windows 7 on my pc. I have a ton of music and photos that i would like to be able to share. We recently got set up with at&t uverse, and there is an interactive feature on uverse that allows you to access your music and photos from your network. When i go to this feature in uverse, i am able to see that my pc is connected, but i am unable to access any of my folders that contain music or photos. At one point, i was able to access them, but i installed another hdd in my pc with more music and while i was trying to get everything set to share, things disappeared from uverse.

I have gone to my computer and right clicked on the music library that i want to share, i selected share with specific people, and included my homegroup. I gave the homegroup read / write access, but the files still do not show up on uverse. I would appreciate any insight on sharing or any insight on how to use with at&t uverse.

File Sharing Network Issues

I have three computers running on my network. 2 computer have windows 7 ultimate 64bit and 1 has windows vista ultimate 32bit. One of the computers is wireless (windows 7) the other 2 are wired. When i first turn on my wireless computer i have full internet and file sharing connections. I continue to have full connections until about about a half hour or until i lock that computer. Then when i start to use that computer again i have internet connections but my file sharing connections are messed up. I only can share files with the windows vista computer. When i try to access and share files with the other windows 7 computer it says windows cannot access.

I try and click diagnose but it cannot find anything wrong with it. Can anyone help me find out what is wrong with this? The only other way i can start to share files with both computers is to either restart my computer or go into computer management disable and then re enable my network card (that seems to work most of the time). My router and wireless card are only about a year and a half old. It is a linksys speed booster brand. Wrt54gs i think.

Firewall Blocking File Sharing

Came into the office today (two computers on the network) and one of the computers could not see the other on the network (it was not a problem the other way around). I went through some troubleshooting, and figured out it was the firewall on the one computer blocking access. The firewall is controlled by macafee virus protection. So, i turned off the firewall, and bingo, i can now see each computer from both directions. The problem is now i don't have any firewall protection. Any reason the settings on the firewall would have been different today than they were yesterday, and how do i turn the firewall back on while allowing the file sharing to continue on as before over the network?

The File And Printer Sharing (smb) Problem

The device or resource (pc name) is not setup to accept connections on port "the file and printer sharing (smb)". Long enough i have suffered with this problem, hopefully this will be the place that is able to solve it. A while ago, when i installed windows 7, the file sharing feature just worked fine. Thought since a month, maybe 2 its not working at all. I have 2 pc's. One laptop with windows xp 64-bit, one main pc with windows 7 64-bit (windows 7 ultimate n build 7600).

The problem: i have file sharing turned on, thought i cannot access the desktop pc from my laptop. (Not by name nor ip address). On the desktop pc itself, i cannot look into the shared files (which are on the same pc!). The ironical part of this is that is does show what files are shared (and this updates correctly) thought it wont show the content. Also the desktop pc cannot see any other pc on the network, thought they all have the same workgroup. The laptop is able to see and access other windows xp pc's who are in the same network, but not the desktop (windows 7) pc.

Some tests i did:
#1 from my laptop i can ping to my desktop.
#2 from my desktop i can ping to my laptop.
#3 i uninstalled northon ghost (even with the removal tool), no changes.
#4 i turned off eset nod32, windows firewall and windows defender, no changes.
#5 i uninstalled the drivers of my network card and reinstalled them, no changes.
#6 i checked if the serveces started that might have something to do with this:
-> "Computer browsing" -> started
-> "Ssdp discovery" -> started
-> "Tcp/ip netbios helper" -> started
-> "Server" -> started

#7 when i turn on network discovery, it will automatically go back to "off". (I used to be able, when all worked, to turn this on!)

#8 set pc back to a restore point 20 days ago (this unfortunately was the earliest i could find, thought even on that date i had problems. )
Change sharing options for different network profiles is configured as following:
Home & work (current profile)
Turn off network discovery (! I cant turn this on !)
Turn on file and printer sharing
Turn on sharing so anyone with network access can read and write.
Media streaming is off (also with "on", no changes)
Use 128-bit encryption to help. (Also with "40- or 56-bit", no changes.
Allow windows to manage homegroup connections
Errors:
#1 when i open network, it shows my desktop pc only in the list. (I used to have all the pc's in the list)
#2 when i click my desktop pc's name, it shows which folders are shared: "some folder" & "users" are shared.
#3 when i click eighter of these folders i get the notification: "windows cannot access jeffreyusers"
#4 when i click "diagnose" it shows: "the remote device or resource won't accept the connection" and "the device or resource (jeffrey) is not set up to accept connections on port "the file and printer sharing (smb)". "
 
Solution: the problem is caused by a corrupted file.

The dns client and the dhcp client rely on 3 processes in windows 7: "nsi, tdx and afd" (can be found in the registry, see 2nd post of mine for location). If the dhcp client wont start, it might be, because of one of these files. By entering the command: "net start nsi"  (and tdx, and adf) you can find out if they work or not. In my case the tdx process wouldn't start.

Using shinmila h. 2nd post, you can find out if the file is corrupted, and replace them with a non corrupted one. In my case the tdx.sys file was totally empty, and following the tutorial of shinmila h. 2nd post link, i was able to replace the file, with a file of my friend. (I couldn't find it on the installation dvd).

Once the file has been replaced, the service would start normally again. (Manually, or automatically on restart) who knows what i have to do, to make windows sharing possible again, between a windows 7 and a windows xp pc.

Office 2003 Archive.pst File Problem

Fresh install of win 7 home edition 64 bit. Office 2003 installed ok after emulating xp. Imported all . Pst information without any real problems except for the archive. Pst file. This file is older and large, so i elected to rename it and attempt to then create a new archive. Pst file based on procedures posted on numerous forums and websites. None of these procedures worked and when i am prompted to archive my new install of office 2003 i am unable to do so.

As best i can tell, i have all the required administrator authorities. I have not changed any registry information as suggested on some websites. Office 2003 has been updated to all current service pack updates. On an identical computer and install in my wife's computer, she can archive by adding to her older archive file, but we cannot create any new archive files in her application either.

Office 2007 File Association Icons Missing

File association icons missing, namely office 2007 icons and adobe programs. Nearly a month ago my file association icons just disappeared for a select few programs and file types. Currently the programs missing the icon/displaying a blank icon are: itunes, adobe reader 9, adobe audition 3, and all the programs in the microsoft office 2007 suite (word, excel, publisher, etc. ) As well as .doc, .docx, . Xls, . Xlsx, and all other standard microsoft office file type extensions and the adobe acrobat default file extensions. (.pdf)

I have tried all the standards: uninstalling office 2007, re-installing office, restarting before/after installs/re-installs, anything regarding the icon cache, resetting default file types etc. All that is shown is a blank "file" icon however, the program still launches upon selecting the files it's just quite annoying needing to view the file types to determine at a glance what program will open selected file.

Office 2003 Issue - Microsoft Office End User License Agreement

Windows 7 pro, get "microsoft office end-user license agreement. " From office 2003 programs. I purchased a new hp computer with windows 7 pro, then loaded all of the software i'd been using on my old xp system. Every time i start any office 2003 app, i get a dialog box labeled "microsoft office end-user license agreement. " I must click on "accept" before continuing. I use an old vista solution of 'running as admin' and now i receive a box asking if it is alright to modify this program(registry i think). How can i stop this box from appearing?

Only One Speaker Works On Headphones

This is not a problem with the headphones, i've tried multiple pairs, each of which works fine on other devices. Nor is it a problem with the left-right speaker balance as i've checked that setting. Oddly enough the inbuilt speakers work fine. Okay so with those checks out of the way, i'm using a 2 week old acer aspire timeline as3810t running windows 7 64 bit home premium.

Just a few days ago suddenly i notice that when using headphones only the left speaker gives any sound. It's like the right speaker doesn't exist. I emailed acer tech support but they didn't reply and it's been 4 days. The laptop has a hdmi out and a black audio jack with a headphones icon and the letters spdif. I've also tried uninstalling the audio thing in device manager and downloaded the latest drivers, all to no avail.

I just had a hunch that completely wiping the hard disk and reinstalling windows would fix the problem, as it's hard to imagine that the audio jack just died (jiggling it around does not work). So before i do that and before i make a warranty claim, i was thinking someone would be able to show me how to check the relevant settings etc without completely obliterating the current windows installation.

Ram Works On Xp But Not On Win 7

I've recently upgraded to windows 7 from windows xp, upon trying to install windows 7 i frequently kept getting bsods so i took all but one piece of ram out figuring that would be the likely problem (as this has happened in the past with windows 7 installations i have done) sure enough windows 7 then installed perfectly. However, all of my ram doesn't work with windows 7, apart from one 1gb stick, all the other sticks cause my pc to bsod. I find it hard to believe that all of my pieces of ram are faulty, so i'm left wondering on what it is that's not letting my ram work. As i said, this ram worked fine with windows xp, but just not windows 7 (or windows vista)

Reserve How Fn Button Works?

I have an hp g62-134ca. On my old computer (running vista) i used to use f2 to edit cells in excel instead of having to double-click. It saved me a lot of time. On my new computer (g62-134ca), the fn button works in reserved. In other words, if i press f2, the monitor brightness is decreased (f3 makes the monitor brighter). To edit an excel cell, i need to press the fn + f2 combo (or double-click with my mouse). I'm wondering if there's a way that i could reverse how the fn button works so that if i press f2, i edit an excel cell, and if i press fn + f2 i decrease the monitor brightness. Thank you for any tips!

Only 64-bit Ie Works In Win 7

I upgraded to windows 7 about a month ago and can only use ie 64 bit to connect to the internet. My 32 bit ie doesn't connect (i.e. Program files (x86)). That means flash does not work and i have been unable to connect using quicken, napster, itunes, thunderbird, and other programs that i use (all these programs say i have no internet connection and to try again after i connect or something to that effect). I'm only speculating that the latter issue (many programs not recognizing my internet connection) is related to the same problem (i.e. 64 v. 32 bit).

Monitor Only Works With Analogue Input

I have installed windows 7 on a new hard disk in my pc. I also have a new graphics card geforce gt240. When running vista my monitor was connected via dvi only. When i boot up the machine the monitor works until just after the windows logo and then goes blank. It works fine with an analogue cable. I have installed the latest driver from nvdia for the graphics card. In device manager the monitor driver shows up as generic non pnp monitor. It is a viewsonic 20inch flat panel monitor and is definitely pnp.

It works fine in dvi on another machine running xp so the monitor is ok. I tried loading a new viewsonic driver but the installation said it couldn't detect my monitor and aborted. Should i try to install a generic pnp monitor driver and if so where can i get one?

Microsoft Works 9 Security Update

I have been trying for the past 3 days now to install the microsoft works 9 security update onto my computer. I have tried through windows update and i have tried manually on the website (even where it lists that the new update is not recognizing office 2007 on computers). Still nothing! I need to update my computer fully! What do i do since it's not recognizing the folder on my computer for being installed already and not updating it? It tells me that once the folder is not recognized i have to cancel the installation and i need to be the administrator to give permission (which i am already). Help?

Microsoft Works Calendar Problems

I have a dell inspiron 14 running windows 7 and microsoft works came installed. I can't open the calendar. Error "works cannot access one or more files it needs to run the calendar. Try reinstalling works, and then starting the program again. " It did not come with a backup disk or any disk for that matter. So are they wanting me to purchase a whole new microsoft works program just for the calendar to work? I don't think so! Any suggestions?

Freezes And Works In Safe Mode Only

Acer aspire 7740-6656 laptop less than 6 mos old windows 7 home premium 64 bit intel core i5-430m processor w/4 gb ddr3 1066 sd ram, & hd on-board graphics problem: currently only run windows in safe mode:when run in normal mode windows runs for 5 min, then freezes which prevents anything from working - keyboard, touchpad, even the screen freezes. For instance if windows is in the process of upgrading as it was today the install window freezes. All that can be done is to power off machine and reboot into safe mode - note: safe mode networking does not work either.

Have tried system restore in safe mode with success of taking system back but it does not resolve the problem. Acer ts is no help, they are useless and all windows diagnostics show no hardware or software issues when run in safe mode. Have done several re-installs of the os, drivers, etc. From the hidden partition on the hard drive with no resolution and there are no error messages generated when the system locks up.

Only Internet Explorer 64-bit Works

Only internet explorer 64 bit works. I've searched everything. And no answers. I believe it a driver thing but i know others have experienced this issue.google chrome won't work nor will firefox, nor will ie 32 bit. Multiple reboots. Total scan, don't have norton, installed nod 32 and uninstalled it, did the winscock things as admin, all the other suggestions too. Problems with adobe flash downloads. Etc. Yes, i've done everything and tried everything and still no fix! Why is none from microsoft giving an answer.

It happened before about 2 months ago to me and i roll backed to a date. Then it worked. Then re-installed all windows update. All was working fine then google chrome stopped working. Just like that 3 days ago. I tried to restore/rollback to that same date and nothing. Then went through all the updates again and a million other things. I don't want a work around. I want a fix! Can anyone suggest the boot method so both 32 & 64 bit drivers work properly? It's very frustrating. It's a new hp computer running windows 7 64-bit and windows essentials as my antivirus.

Audio On Webcam No Longer Works

I am pretty sure that since i ended up with 64 bit system type, that is when my audio stopped working on webcam. I know when i upgraded to windows 7 the webcam disappeared, was so happy when i got it back thanks to this site, i didn't even notice the sound was gone. Anyway, have to use google to use alot of things i need. I just want to change back to 32 bit, anyone else have an idea what could be wrong or how to go back, i would appreciate it very much. I would go back to vista if i didn't have to go through so many changes again. So far i don't see where windows 7 is anything but a pain in the butt.

Ms Works 9 Issues With Home Upgrade

My parents after upgrading vista home to win 7 home had allof the icons change to wordpads. The icons are also inactive. On the start menu if a program is clicked a dialogue box opens stating can't open file at this location, or file may be corrupt. I walked them through unistalling ms works 9 (ms works, ms powerpoint viewer, and live office) reboot and all files reappear and work properly.

Tried to reinstall ms works and it returns to the wordpad icons and locked out of programs. You can open a word (works) file from the library fine but not from the start menu or icons. Had them uninstall for now. Until i can get a better answer. Any thoughts?

Wireless Connection Works And Then Dies

My new dell windows 7 will connect to internet through the cable. The wireless connection works and then dies. There's no rhyme or reason to win it works or doesn't. I've installed all the windows updates. I've unplugged router waited for lights to go out and another 10 seconds before reconnecting. I do have the 802. 11 powered router but didn't understand the posting directing to change the router since the last update created a problem with wireless.
