Aspose Editor Issue With Upgrading To Win7

We have a project in which we use aspose editor, and its working fine in windows xp and ie7.
Now our client wants to upgrade to windows 7 with ie8, but aspose editor is not working in this environment. For running aspose editor we need to register our server ip address for full trust. It's working fine in windows xp but not in windows7. If we give computer name instead of ip address, its working fine in windows 7.

Can you please suggest the reason why it is not accepting ip address?
Are there any security reasons?

Live Photo Gallery Editor In Win 7 64-bit

I had win 7 32bit on my old computer and used the photo gallery editor as my default for image files. This seems to be missing from the 64bit version. Although the editor is still there, i can't get at it directly. I use thumbnails as icons for image files and the pg editor worked fine for this in 32bit. I cannot find a program to use as default for image files that will do this. It is obviously much easier to pick an image out of a folder when the icon is the image.

Any ideas?

Deleted And Changed Registry

Currently i am running win7 ultimate x64. I was trying to get wmp 11 to run on win7 using these instructions: http://www.Blogsdna.com/2409/downgrade-windows-media-player-12-to-wmp-11-on-windows-7.htm

Since altering the registry, i am no longer able to use wmp 12 or wmp 11. I have tried to download and reinstall the wmp 12 pack (both x64 and x86), but i am told that it is not suitable for my computer. I have also run my win7 repair disc. Any help on how to restore my computer. Wmp to its original state would be appreciated.

Editing Registry Administrator Rights

I have a java program which needs to edit registry at hkey_current_user. It is able to execute regedit when run from a standard user account but when i run the very same program from an account having administrative privileges, i get the error saying the "regedit needs elevated privileges".

This is mind boggling as a standard user is able to run regedit without a prompt where as an administrator needs elevated permissions ?

Is there any way i can edit hkey_current_user registry values from an account having administrator privilages without having to "elevate" the privileges of this account.

Cannot Access Registry Or .exe Files

Can't access registry or .exe fies so i got a new computer, it has windows  and runs on a 64-bit operating system. I had downloaded and played a game on my other computer, and the client worked just fine. On this computer, i downloaded the same client, from the exact same site, and for some reason i couldn't open, drag, or access the .exe file from my downloads. So i looked into it and over time realized that some .exe files would open while others wouldn't. I went in the registry and changed the value of both options in the exe folder without realizing that i should've just edited the default.

So to get to the point, i can't access any .exe files, on top of having absolutely no access to the registry. I can manage to et on the internet directly, but no programs or downloads will open, or can't access the registry ether. I've tried every trick in the book, booting in safe mode with command prompts, command prompts in general, and none of them seem to work. So without further adue, i'm screwed. Any help or suggestions?Oh and i've managed to have every single .exe file try and start with regedit, reading that if you tried to open regedit with itself it would work. Absolutely not. And now i'm in an even deeper rut. Nd changing it to regedit.com doesn't work either.

Win2k Server Registry Hive

Was only able to select criteria for my problem as win2k server was not listed in the list. Problem is, registry hive is increasing. I have identified the problem (hkey_current_userprintersdevmodeperuser) and removed all the unwanted printer info on that page. Able to see size difference via command prompt by using the dureg -a command. But current registry size at system properties>performance option does change or reflected with current reg size after server reboot. How do i reduce the reg size at system properties.

Open Documents In Ie

Recently i have noticed that word and excel documents accessed via ie (7 or 8) do not open in their own application. Instead, they open in what appears to be half browser/half application. Once the document is saved, it is then shown in its native application. This is a change to the way documents used to open in ie, and i was wondering why this change was made.

I know it is browser related because i have tested it on several sites with the same results, but documents opened in firefox open in their native applications. I know this is going to cause a problem with some of my customers who are not very computer literate. Is there a setting that can be changed to avoid this?

Tabs Will Not Open

I disabled windows live messenger, because it continued to pop up even so i don't want it to. Why is this such a pain? Another thing is the tabs. Most of them will not open for me. I have to work around wherever i want to go so i can open this page and it does not open. For instance, when i want to send an invoice to my customers for their purchase. I click to send it, but not able to. The new tab tries to open, but fails every time. This is happening on just about every page i try to open.

It will open a new page, but, that's the extent of it. So, i try to find another way to open it. Sometimes i have to copy and paste the address of that particular page. If i do get to it, i then try to open that page and the same thing happens. It's a big mess and taking too much of my time. It can get pretty much confusing after awhile with all these blank pages that will not open.

Browser Does Not Open

Intermittent problem: sometimes ie8 does not open after clicking on the icon. Hourglass for a few seconds, then nothing. Afterwards, if i hit ctl-alt-del and the task manager window comes up, the browser will open too. Sometimes hitting ctl-alt-del does not bring up the task manager and nothing happens. I can use the controls to turn the pc off or to reboot, but that doesn't solve the problem. The problem persists for several minutes, goes away and then returns intermittently.

I'm running xp, sp3, 32 bit version on an compaq amd64 with 2gb of ram. The system is five years old and has worked flawlessly until now.

Itunes Will Not Open

I'm trying to open i-tunes from icon on left of screen but it's not opening at all! It used to work fine! I'm clicking my i-tunes icon at left of screen but although for a second or so the loading circle appears it quickly goes away and doesn't load/open. It used to work fine and all my other applications seem to be working. Only thing i've noticed is that when i switch my lap-top on it tries to update i-tunes and (i think it might be real-time player but not sure) but takes an eternity but also doesn't manage to complete this. It goes so far then gets stuck.

Ie Does Not Open But Firefox Does

About a month ago ie failed to connect but firefox did, downloaded ie 8 thinking this was the problem, still no luck, attempted the networks diagnostics for windows xp and it states something like this -windows can not connect to the internet due to a problem with the firewall and to check ports 80, 443 and 21-.

So i turned the firewall off from norton and the windows firewall is off, tried again and the same answer, went to the support at microsoft.com and it suggested to download net framework 3. 5 did that but when the program loaded and attempted to "re-connect with the server" it could not, it made 5 attempts and since it could not connect it did not finish the installation. By the way i still have net framework 2 but can not download the new.

It is very important for me to be able to connect as it appears that my itunes is using ie to connect and i can not update my iphone.

Have To Open Games Twice

Why do i have to open my games twice? I'm having trouble with my games. I have to open the file two times to play the game. When i open the first time (double click or enter), the mouse icon indicates that it is opening the game (it turns to be a spinning blue circle), but then nothing happens, and the cpu usage gadget is rising to about 60 %, usually it's just running at 2-25%. At the second time i open, the game is opened, but the game is so lagged (i wonder if it's because the cpu usage is becoming so high).

So is there anyone can help me? At least tell me what is this problem i am facing. Those games are fable : the lost chapter, gta iii and need for speed underground 2.

.exe Files Will Not Open Normally

.exe files will not open normally, they just give a message saying "choose the program you want to use to open this file" i've seen this problem elsewhere but with a few different recommendations. My windows 7 recently started malfunctioning recently after apparently contracting several viruses - i think i've gotten rid of most of the problems by downloading the free version of avg, which was recommended to me by a friend. However, two problems remain:

1. Internet explorer keeps opening erratically and immediately accessing strange websites (i'm sure this is some sort of malware still on my computer). My internet explorer folder won't delete, either (it says i need "permission from trustedinstaller to make changes to this folder").

2. I can't open .exe files normally. Every time i try to (either by double clicking an icon or from the start menu) i get an "open with" window, prompting me to pick an application to open the .exe file with. I can still open applications if i right-click on them and select "run as administrator", but something is still obviously wrong and i'm hoping someone knows what might be happening so they can help.

Oh, and the little tab in the bottom right hand corner of the screen (where the "safely eject hardware" button usually is") is gone.

Open In New Tab Just Sticks

I can't seem to get a connection with "open in a new tab" and "open in a new window" doesn't work at all. This worked fine on vista but just did a full install of win7. I thought maybe norton was the problem and unistalled but problem is still going. Anyone else have this problem?

Programs Wont Open

I just recently got a dell laptop for christmas and it works perfectly but after a couple days of using it i tried to use the webcam and it would not open. I'd click on the link but nothing happened. No error messages popped up or anything. I clicked troubleshoot compatibility and then it opened but now everytime i go to use it it asks if dell webcam can make changes to the computer. Also, the volume on the videos do not work through the webcam. Today i tried opening itunes and it clicked but would not open just like the webcam. Does anyone know how to fix this?

Mouse Settings Will Not Open

I recently purchased a new laptop - sony vaio - with windows 7. My issue is that my 'mouse' settings will not open up. After i had installed a usb "mircosoft wireless notebook optical mouse 3000" which seems could have caused this, but have uninstalled it and same thing is happening being able to open the mouse settings. Also restarted multiple times.could it also be something messed in the registry. I am able to open everything else with no problem. It also shows that it is thinking (circle thing) when i attempt to open it. No error message or anything pops up.

Taskbar - Cannot Tell What Applications Are Open And What Are Not

In the past the taskbar icons was on left and the applications open was in the middle. Now they both are all over the place. I can't tell what is opened or not. I want it back the it was. Also i want my show desktop icon back. I hate the extra step of right click the task bar and then click on show desktop. Why speed things up and then slow things down when i have to close all the icons up because i don't what is open and what is not. Also i hate right clicking the internet explorer to start another one again. I miss xp where you just click on it and it opened up another one.

Cannot Open Items From Within Search

I note that many, many folks are having difficulty with explorer in windows 7. This is likely related, but i can't find discussion of this specific issue.

Windows 7 pro x64

When i have the search window open (i use ctrl-f to launch it), it erratically but frequently ceases to allow me to open a file or email message from within the search window. This is usually accompanied by the preview pane ceasing to work. This is then usually followed by explorer crashing.

However, all of the above are somewhat inconsistent. They happen on a nearly daily basis, but in different permutations. Restarting will always resolve the issue, but only temporarily. It sometimes returns immediately, sometimes hours later.

I don't see this behavior on my other systems so perhaps it is a third party software issue. But i can't associate this with any obvious third party software interference.

Has anyone experienced and resolved a similar issue?

And, who can recommend a third party search utility that works well with windows 7 and specifically with outlook 2007? I am completely dependent on searching my email archives, previewing and then opening the messages from within the search window/utility.
