.xml File Located In System32 Folder, Is Not Recognised


I have a problem concerning an xml document and windows 7 system32 folder. I have recently installed the latest driver for my nvidia graphics card and one of the files it loads is nvapps.xml into the windows7 system32 folder. I also use a programme called nhancer which modifies the nvidia programme for the benefit of ms flight simulator x (my hobby).

I now find that nhancer cannot load because it cannot find the nvapps.xml file in system32. If i highlight the nvapps.xml file in system32 and press open or edit, i get the message which says :- windows cannot find "c:windowssystem32nvapps.xml". Make sure you typed the name correctly, and then try again. (Actually, i get this message three layers thick on the screen (i.e. I have to acknowledge it three times before the message disappears from the screen)). I have found that there are ten *.xml files within system32 and five of them produce the above message and the remaining five all open easily and correctly. Of the five that windows cannot find two of them are associated with the nvidia driver and the other three are not in any way connected with that driver. I have also found that if i copy the nvapps.xml file to a different folder or hard drive, then i can open or edit it quite normally and without difficulty. I would be grateful for any advice or comment that about my problem.

Editing Xml File In Program Files Folder

I have a .net program that reads an xml file located in the application startup folder. Under windows xp, i can simply go in and edit this file to change settings, etc. In windows 7, it is driving me crazy. It looks like i am editing it (running notepad as administrator) and writing the file back to the folder. But then i start the program, and the settings remain unchanged. I've even tried deleting the xml file completely to no avail - the program should give me an error if the file cannot be found (it does this correctly under xp), but it somehow seems to find the original file even though i cannot see the file in windows explorer or find it from a dir command in a dos box.

File Download Search In Folder

I use windows 7 ultimate. Firefox latest version. I download music preview files, alot and i want to find a way to better short my file during download. e.g. Axwell - take this ( dj remix )

That is a song name. I have a music folder with many subfolders ( their name are based from source of download or genre ) my problem now is a have multiple ''double'' / alot of same songs in different folders, which take too much hdd space.

When i click download, i have a pop up window, ask for ''save as'' it direct me to my music folder, now i can see if i already own the file if it's written exactly the same (ask to replace file). But when i am into a sub-folder i dont know if i already have it in music main folder or another music subfolder. ( Lets say, im into c:/music/electro , i want to know if i already have that song in c:/music/house or c:/music or all sub-folder in music without having to look every folder before download. )

Do you understand my request? Is their such feature in windows 7?

Error - File Or Folder Open Or In Use By Another Program

I am using windows 7 64-bit on an asus laptop, and recently ran into a strange problem. I have a shared hard drive on a desktop pc that stores all of my working files. I often work from the laptop across my wireless network, working on files stored on my desktop hard drive. The desktop is running win xp professional.

When i try and move a folder on the desktop hard drive using the laptop running win 7 i am getting the error"file or folder open or in use by another program, please close the program and try again"
The files are not open on the desktop or elsewhere on the laptop either, but nothing i do seems to unlock these files so they can be managed remotely from the laptop across the wireless network.

I found one forum post that said something about having to unlock the permissions for the file in windows 7? Is this the problem? And if so, how would one go about doing that? I have checked the permissions of the folders themselves, and they are set to full read write access for everyone, so i don't know what i could possibly change. This is a very annoying glitch, having to go to my desktop every time i need to move or delete a file from my shared hard drive!

Also i have had no problems in the past w/ my previous two laptops managing files across my network on this particular desktop drive. Those were running win xp home and media center edition.

Folder / File Permissions In Properties Tab

I have a particular program that will not start because i do not have write permissions for the folder, sub-folders, and files associated with the program. Going to the properties tab reveals that the folder is read only. I uncheck the box but can't seem to make it a permanent change. It always comes back up as read only. I have gone into every imaginable edit/advanced tab possible and given permissions to every possible group i can think of, yet despite the fact that every kind of permission possible is enabled and visible, i still can't uncheck the read-only box permanently and i still get "you do not have write permissions" from the program. I have tried changing ownership, running as administrator, and yet no progress on this problem.

Can't Open Downloads Folder, File Does Not Have A Program Associated With It

"this file does not have a program associated with it for performing this action. Please install a program or, if one is already installed, create an association in the default programs control panel". As far as i can tell, all my other folders open up fine. Last thing i did was trying to download some software that would gradually turn my volume down so that i could fall asleep to it. It didn't work (older software, seemed like it wasn't compatible with windows 7) so i deleted the application and the installer which were located in my downloads folder.

Full File Address In Folder Explorer Bar

How to show full file address in folder explorer bar in windows 7? Is it possible to make the address show similar to xp (c:program filesadobe. )? It's extremely confusing as it is now, especially when in a mapped drive (i would expect the base level to show the mapped drive rather than "computer").

Is Support Call Center Located In India?

Received phone call from india yesterday claiming to ms windows support and reporting to me that all windows systems were having problems in the last 3 days. They reported that the errors from my laptop triggered the call from ms windows support. I requested they send me an email with their contact numbers but haven't received it. My question is do you have windows support based in india call center?

The call quality indicated it probably was based in india but i had alot of trouble understanding both what they were asking for and why they were calling me as i didn't request a call. Suspected it was an attempt to gain access to my pc but didn't bite but thought someone should be aware of this. Background noise sounded like a call center and call distortion sounded like it was an overseas call.

The tech stated that errors my laptop was reporting to ms was the reason they were calling and wanted to give them the error codes i was seeing. I don't know how they got my number but i suspected they were not legitimate so requested an email from them. Now i'm afraid i'll get an email loaded with viruses as i gave them my eamil address.

Error - Procedure Entry Point Dwmhintdxupdate Could Not Be Located

"the procedure entry point dvmhintdxupdate could not be located in the dynamic link library user32.dll. "  Is shown on drive d [dual boot] after login screen. Windows 7 then reverts to black screen - only cursor is displayed. I'm running vista home premium 64bit on laptop on c partition. D partition has windows 7 professional 64bit installed. Both were running fine [using dual boot] until 4 or 5 days ago when windows 7 would go thru ordinary booting, login page came up, then window.
 
"The procedure entry point dvmhintdxupdate could not be located in the dynamic link library user32.dll. " If i click on the ok button, then the screen goes black and only the cursor can be seen.

After experimenting, i found i could use ctrl-alt-del to load task manager, and then could run various programs by using it - but of course i cannot get on internet since the network and wireless drivers apparently do not load. There is intermittent activity of the hard drive while the screen remains black - have no idea what this means.

Search on internet suggests that maybe maybe user32.dll is corrupt - but can't find anywhere to download a valid copy. I've tried all repair and recovery items after booting with windows 7 pro install disk. Safe mode boot produces the exact same result.system restore-i apparently didn't save any restore points! Booting to c drive - vista still works fine!

Error Parsing Xml

I recently did a clean install of win7 pro x64 and encountered an error when starting the local security policy from the administrative tools. The error reads as follows:

Administrative templates

!Encountered and error while parsing.

Encountered an error while parsing.
Illegal xml character

Other than being able to confirm the file is in the directory where it says it is and seeing it has a date of 06/10/2009, i have no idea where to go from there. I searched the internet for this specific error and file to no avail.

Ordinal 120 Could Not Be Located In The Dynamic Link Library Iertutil.dll

"the ordinal 120 could not be located in the dynamic link library iertutil.dll", ie and many other programs won't start! Os: win7 home prem. X64 running as administrator, only user on machine. I installed a game recently and tried to run it and received this error, which causes it to crash each time. Doing the research, i found that this .dll pertains to ie8. Why a third-party game would utilize an ie8 .dll is beyond me.

I did a search for this and the answers all pointed to "uninstall and reinstall". Since i have win 7, there is no way to remove it completely or re-download the software again, so i went through add or remove programs > "turn windows features on or off" to uncheck/uninstall it, reboot, then check/reinstall it. I still get the error.

Other programs - ones i didn't think had anything to do with "iertutil.dll" - are now being affected by this as well, producing the exact same error. I ran revo uninstaller to uninstall the game and clean out any remaining files or registry items for it, but still get the error with some other applications, and ie still won't start.

One suggestion pointed to downloading the .dll from a third party website, but i could not find the correct version (8. 0. 7600. 16385), so i did not do this. Another post about a similar issue had a response instructing to do an sfc scan. I did.correction: sfc found corrupt files but was unable to fix some of them. I have the log if needed.

Whatever happened to this .dll also has affected my ie8. When i click to open it, nothing happens. It doesn't open in the background and hang - task manager shows no "iexplorer.exe" anywhere. It just does nothing.system restore is not an option. I would really appreciate it if somebody could actually provide me with a good answer. I have not had a single good experience with these msa forums at all for any of my problems.

Ie6 / Ie7 Compatibility Issue With Xml Files

I have a strange issue going on. I have inherited some code from a previous programmer, and he builds an xml file and pushes that to ie for printing. It's been fine in ie6, but now that we're rolling out ie7 to our workstations, it no longer works. It seems to be in an endless loop, and it will display some of the report, then that disappears, and something else will pop up later, and this just goes on until i kill ie via task manager.

The really odd thing is that in testing, if i stick the file on the web server and point ie7 at it, it works properly, but if i double-click the html page or point ie7 to it on the network drive, it locks up. Ny ideas what i'm missing here?The file in question is at http://www.co. Tillamook. Or. Us/gov/ois/testing/genericreceipt.htm

Usb Is Recognised, But Does Not Appear In My Computer

I've searched through the forums here, and tried many of the answers people have given for this problem. I tried unchecking the 'hide empty drives in the computer folder' option. I also tried going through disk management and changing the drive letter, but this option does not even appear. The drives are marked unallocated, and the only options i have are about shrinking or spanning volumes. The drives work fine in other computers, and is recognized when it is plugged in because it gives me the 'remove safely' option.

Mic Not Recognised On Macbook

External mic not recognized by windows 7 installed on boot camp of macbook (snow leopard). External mic not recognized by windows 7 installed on boot camp of macbook (snow leopard). The sound system(via control panel ) shows internal mic (cirrus logic cs 4206a-ab01 ) as default, & on right-click to see disabled/disconnected devices, nothing shows up. I also installed the realtek driver from the mac installation cd, nothing works.

When i plug in the headset though, i get sound output from the only jack on the macbook in the headset & the headphone shows up in the sound system too, but mic doesn't show up (not recognized). I also uninstalled the cirrus logic device (not driver) & did restart. Windows 7 installed the device on restart, but the non-recognition of mic persists.

Please guide, how can the windows 7 recognize the external mic. I don't want to use the internal mic (for speech recognition software).

Usb Memory Sticks Not Recognised

Two of my usb memory sticks (out of a total of 6) crashed win7 to a blue screen when first inserted. These two drives can be seen in device manager and in disk manager they show as disk 6. They have no drive letter and no volume. Attempting to format them or change the drive letter via disk manager always results in an error message saying that disk manager needs to be refreshed but this has no effect. These two disks can be seen and work perfectly on another pc running win7 and they also work on my vista partition.

I tried to apply a microsoft hotfix kb297694 (for xp) but this does not run. I think it is a registry problem (i get the bingbong when the drive is inserted and the safe removal icon but no sign of the drive in explorer or my computer). Does anyone have a fix?

Usb Printer Device Not Recognised

I have a canon mp810 multifunction printer. It is a usb printer. It has worked fine on my old dell desktop pc. And my dell 1525 notebook can also talk to it via a wifi network and print (most of the time). But when i plug the printer directly into the notebook, i get an error "usb device not recognized". I have tried installing new win 7 versions of the drivers from canon but nothing seems to work. Oh yes i can add the printer to the device list, but it is not recognized properly and ultimately won't print.

And as a control measure, i borrowed another dell notebook (slightly older model) and just plugged the printer cable into the usb port and that notebook proceeded to access windows update and download the drivers and all was fine within about 10 minutes. Something is wrong with my notebook. And the problem is specific to this printer because i can plug in other devices to the usb ports and they work fine. The only other printer devices are onenote and xps and fax.

External Hard Drive Not Recognised

I bought an asus intel pentium with window 7 installed - i also had comodo but changed to avg - as the former blocked everything coming to my computer. Although the computer recognizes that i have attached a wd external hard drive or cruzer usb stick - it does not let me open it. In addition it does asks me repeatedly to back up my computer, but then does not recognize my dvd burner. Never had these problems before - my old dell is still working fine and recognizes all the external apparatus.

Usb Devices Not Recognised After Upgrading

Usb ports have power but won't recognize devices i'm running windows 7, 64 bit and ever since i upgraded the usb ports have been really flaky and now they won't read most devices. I've tried by sansa mp3 player and nikon digital camera in my old laptop and it reads them both instantly, but my new laptop can't see them. The disk spins a lot, but nothing happens. The ports will charge devices, but won't recognize them. All the usb drivers are up to date when i go through the device manager. Funny thing is that i go from zero problems with vista to this. Any real fixes to this issue?.

External Usb Hdd Not Recognised By Win 7

External usb hdd not recognized by win 7, and no longer recognized under win xp. Maxtor usb 300gb external hdd working fine on windows xp. Unplugged and attached to new windows 7 pc. Os responds by saying device found and working properly. I use the disk to download assorted files.

Then moved cpu a few feet (did not switch off or move usb hdd). Reboot, and usb hdd not seen as a working disk. Seems very unlikely that hdd damaged at this time. Manage disks shows the disk apparently working but not "initialized". Right click to initialize. Hour glass shows for ~2 seconds, and goes away, but disk not initialized.

Reattach to old win xp computer, and now looks the same as on the win 7 machine, not initialized and not unrealizable.gots lots of data on that hdd which i would like to keep, so have you guys got any new ideas?

Canon Eos 40d Camera Not Recognised

I am hoping people here can help. I have been trying this all weekend with no success. I have a canon eos40d camera. It previously connected fine with xp, but now, not with win7 (32bit). I have installed the latest canon utilities (but according to them, they do not provide the drivers). They tell me that the camera should work just by connecting the camera to the computer by usb. When i do this, i encounter the error "driver not installed properly".

I have looked to see if it is recognized as a storage drive of sorts in my computer, but it does not appear there either. Canon tells me that the wia driver allows it to communicate with the computer. I have been looking for a win 7 wia driver to no avail. I have searched forums and the net for solutions to no avail. I have even read about changing the communication method to ptp or something in the camera's menu system. My camera does not have that option (or at least, i have not been able to find it).
