Odbc Data Source Administrator Not Responding


My computer is having problems viewing my "file dsn" info in odbc data source administrator. While i can successfully open the odbc data source administrator interface, i cannot select the file dsn tab without my mouse pointer changing to the busy pointer for several minutes (hours if left running).

Although the odbc data source administrator becomes unresponsive, i can still execute and access other programs. But whenever the odbc data source administrator is the focus, the mouse pointer is busy and the program doesn't respond. The side effect (and hope for solution) is that access won't browse my odbc connections while attempting to connect to external data sources.

Odbc Driver In Compatibility Mode

Specifics:
I installed obiee in compatibility mode on windows 7 64-bit ultimate edition. I selected windows 2003 (service pack 1) for the compatibility.

As part of the obiee setup, obiee installs analytics web odbc driver.

This odbc driver is not visible in windows 7 under control panel > administrative tools > odbc administrator.

I looked in registry under hkey_local_machine > software > odbc > odbc.ini

The "analyticsweb" is not visible.

However, under hkey_local_machine > software > wow6432node > odbc > odbc.ini

The "analyticsweb" is visible.

I need your help in understanding - how do i create odbc connections using analyticsweb odbc driver which is installed in compatibility mode.

Or for that matter, if there is ever a odbcdriver that gets installed in compatibility mode, how to access it, create/modify connections using the driver?

Win 7 64-bit Odbc Problem

I have win 7 ultimate 64 bit, which is an upgrade from vista business 64 bit. I have the following problem when trying to install an odbc connection (*mdb). When i run odbcad32.exe, from the syswow64 directory, and try to install the 32 bit ms access driver, i get the following fault message:
"The setup routines for the microsoft access driver (*mdb) odbc driver could not be found. Please reinstall the driver" and then "component not found in the registry".

Obviously something is missing. I have looked at the odbc entries in the registry but they are empty. Can anyone advise me on how to resolve this problem.

Cannot Edit Web Page Source

I have a web site that i edit by hand coding in notepad. I view the .html file on my hard drive, click on view and select source. I can then edit my code and change my web pages, then upload via ftp. That was until today! Now the pages are un-editable. The code page now shows up in colours with numbers in the left margin, which didn't happen before. It is not possible to edit the page at all.

I suspect that this is something to do with the windows update that was downloaded today. I was able to establish that this was security update for jscrit 5-8 for windows vista (kb971961) what can i do to make the source code editable again? This is vital as it is the website of a charity that i manage.

Game Freelancer Source Code

I understand that this is probably the wrong way to go about it but seeing as i know of no other way, then this seems the best option currently. Freelancer is a game from 2003 that has enjoyed the merits of a microsoft hosted 'global server' for many years. That support was removed over a year ago, though it may have been longer. Since then it's actually been the players, or the developer community rather, that has instead created a way to not need that global server, while still maintaining the same functionality in the game. Currently there is a strong developer community involved in the game, even with it's declining player-base.

However whilst a lot can be done as it is, many modifications to the game require such things as modifying the game's main .exe file, which is against the terms and conditions and so possibly illegal. However microsoft hasn't taken any action against such a thing. The only actual trouble the freelancer community has encountered in it's modification history has been a debacle involving a halo themed modification. So whilst microsoft has essentially removed most of it's support for the game, it also hasn't done anything to halt it's modification, something which many are thankful for.

Ultimately however, there are many parts of the game that most wish could be changed, but never can be due to the 'hard-coded' nature of such a thing, where the key to changing it is locked away somewhere that we either lack the knowledge, or the ability, to get at. There have been many requests for the source code of freelancer but none have come to fruition.

I understand this is due to a policy that microsoft has that it does not give out the source code of it's games or that the questions should be directed to the developer instead perhaps. The latter is impossible as the developer was bought by microsoft and subsequently dissolved. Ultimately the question i want to ask is:what are the reasons for not releasing the source code of freelancer when it has happened for so many other games, such as freespace 2?

Access Denied On Visual Source Safe

Visual source safe creates files that are read only in the data folder. As i would prefer to have them owned by a different database (these are the ones that installed by default in vb6 [. Program files (x86)microsoft visual studiocommonvss] when there is no visual source safe created with vb6), i want their attribute set to not read only. If i switch the user account permission to allow me to do anything as the administrator (user account setting | never notify), i expect to be able to manage the file security.

However, even in dos as the administrator, i am unable to remove the read only attribute. "Access denied - c:program files (x86)microsoft visual studiocommonvssdatacrcs. Dat" using command "attrib -r *. *"

I would like to remove the read-only permission on these files. Machine is windows 7 ultimate | not networked | stand alone copy with vss 2005, accessing a vb6 source safe folder. This capability needs to apply to any situation on any windows 7 computer. Developers occasionally lose their network access for security reasons and we would like to keep them working on non-networked, stand-alone machines.

Not Responding

So i just recently bought a laptop, and received a free upgrade to windows 7, but ever since i upgraded (4 days ago) it seems to freeze alot, and give me the "not responding" in the title bar. I end the task, but then cant open anything without it happening again. My only solution so far is to restart the computer every time, but i don't want to be doing this once every 5 minutes. Is there an upgrade or a patch to solve this? Or why is this happen so often to me? Any answer are welcome!

Adding Data Hdd

I have just installed windows 7 ultimate 64 bit on a new hdd - the installation went perfectly. I now want to add another hdd (internal), to use as a data drive. I have been using this drive to store all my data from another installation of windows 7 (32 bit). Whilst i can see all the folders, when i attempt to open some folders (but not all) to access files i receive a message saying i don't have permission. I am the only person using the computer, i.e. I have no additional profiles or anything.

How can i fully access this data drive, with full read/write capability? I will also want to use the same drive when i use it with my windows 7 32 bit installation too. I imagine it is something to do with granting permissions or sharing, but i'm not sure what. Any suggestions?

All programs say "not responding" on my new laptop. I have an acer aspire 5532 i bought in march of 2010. I have no viruses and have tried everything to fix this issue.

Programs Not Responding

Im running windows 7 ultimate 32 bit i started getting a not responding message a few months a go for only a few seconds when i tried to open projects in cubase 5. Now i cant even get the projects to open, my computer gets stuck running with (not responding) showing and it never recovers. I tried running ccleaner, updates, latest bios, driver updates but to no avail. Im not getting a clear answer on this problem. Ive searched forums for the last two days. Is there a solution or just speculation, oh and companies trying to sell registry tools. Which don't work by the way either.

Explorer Is Not Responding

I purchased the 3-pack family upgrade windows 7 package. I have two computers, one is a sony vaio running 32-bit os, the other is a dell xps m1530 running 64-bit os. Both machines came factory loaded with windows vista and were not experiencing any problems. I formatted my disk drives before upgrading to make sure there were no ghost files or anything vista left behind.

Both installs went perfect with no issues. Right away both machines experience the same problem. When i try to copy and paste files through windows explorer (pics, mp3's, documents. You name it), the system just hangs and i get the message "windows explorer is not responding". The only times i can copy and paste is right after a reboot. If the system stays running for longer than 10 minutes and i try to copy and paste files it hangs. It doesn't matter where i try to copy files to other directories or usb key's. It just won't work. It only does this when trying to copy and paste. Other than that there is no problems.

What Is Data Execution Prevention Program ?

Data execution prevention can help protect your computer by monitoring your programs to make sure that they use system memory safely. If dep notices a program on your computer using memory incorrectly, it closes the program and notifies you. I have done everything i was told to do to fix this problem and i still keep getting this message. It always says, "internet explorer has stopped working. I don't know what to do.

What is data execution prevention?
 
Data execution prevention (dep) is a security feature that can help prevent damage to your computer from viruses and other security threats. Harmful programs can try to attack windows by attempting to run (also known as execute) code from system memory locations reserved for windows and other authorized programs. These types of attacks can harm your programs and files.

Dep can help protect your computer by monitoring your programs to make sure that they use system memory safely. If dep notices a program on your computer using memory incorrectly, it closes the program and notifies you.

Restore Application Data Shortcut

I have to admit i did this one to myself.

On the user profile (c:users
Ame) if you turn off the "hide protected operating system files" setting, it displays a number of "shortcuts". If these have been deleted, are there any way to restore them. It seems they are not really shortcuts but junctions.

What happens if i install a program that is still looking for the %application data% variable, it will create a directory on c:users
Ameapplication data instead of placing it on c:users
Amelocalroaming

Any help will be greatly appreciated to save me from myself.

Data Execution Protection Crashes

I was having a problem with repetitive data execution protection crashes when i accessed certain pages - particularly when trying to read my optimum email with a browser. This occurred with both ie 8 and firefox. The last straw was when i tried to renew my subscription for my trend micro internet security. Their app for renewing a subscription automatically started ie 8, which would then trigger a "internet explorer has stopped working . Checking for a solution" window, followed by a "close program" window, followed by a message that data execution protection had been the cause of the stoppage.

However, ie 8 does not close - it just triggers another succession of "checking for a solution, " "close program, " "dep was the cause" messages until i manage to get ie8 to respond to its own close button (the red x in the urh corner). Based on another posting, i started ie 8 as administrator and turned off the dep function - now when i try to renew my subscription, i get a rapid series of "checking for a solution" and "close program" windows, but no dep message. I finally had to renew my subscription by telephone! What can be done to fix this?

App Data Folder Have 97gb

Why does app data folder have 97gb? My brand new computer (running windows 7 professional) shows that i have used 272gb. My user name accounts for 192 gb. My music takes up 95gb, but i could not figure out what else could be chewing up a lot of space. When i got to the folders within my user name, i see an app data folder that says it has 97gb. Are there really 97gb in there, or is that pretty much a mirror of my music and other files i have?  If not, where are the 95gb that i can't account for?

I have looked at all other folders under my user name, but don't see any others that have even 1 gb in them. I am guessing it must be a duplication of my music somewhere, but i cannot find it. I would really like to free up that disk space.

Win 7 Is Deleting Data Files

I have a program called password administrator (http://www.Digiquirk.com/) that i keep all my passwords in. It uses an encrypted database located in the program filespassword administrator directory. Upon trying to open it this morning i was unable to log into the database. The database name showed as normal at the started of the program. When i canceled the log in dialog and tried to reopen, i was greeted with a create new database dialog. Now i might suspect the program, but this is the second time this has happened and my backups are also deleted from the program filespassword administratorackups directory.

I've been using this program on xp for years and never had an issue. I've tried to recover using previous version, but they don't exist. I've checked windows defender and avira logs, but nothing. I'm trying to run recuva now, but am probably going to have to go back to a backup from last month.

Any help would be appreciated as this will cause me to go back to xp if no resolution is found.

I am running:

Usb Data Transfer Slow

(win7 pro 64 on amd phenom ii x4, 3. 20 ghz with 4. 0 gb ram)i have tried changing the device settings on both sticks (different manufacturers, both 4gb) to optimize for performance and have rebooted each time. I've tried the transfer from a traditional 7200 rpm drive as well as from a 32gb ssd. Always the same. I have read all the forum post about people who are unhappy with 1. 5 mb/sec transfer rates. At this point, i'd kill for those transfer rates. The files i'm moving are a mix of large and small files and i understand that small files will transfer slower. But surely something is amiss if i can't even surpass 500kb/sec.

Windows Explorer Not Responding

When on desktop, sometimes in firefox, the taskbar will not pop up and then i right click to open a program and the screen turns white and a window opens that says "windows explorer not responding". Mostly from the desktop. I have an hp pavilion a 6757c and was given the windows 7 home premium upgrade. Everything has been pretty good until the past week or two when i try to open a shortcut from the desktop, i get a window that says "windows explorer not responding" before the "error window" comes, the screen turns to an opaque white.

This has happened quite a few times while in a program in the adobe cs4 software suite which is very aggravating because i am taking on-line classes from the art institute of pittsburgh and this has happened in the middle of a design project or assignment required for school. I have tried the "wait for program to respond" option and left it alone for over two hours hoping to not lose my progress only to have to restart anyway and begin the project/assignment from "scratch". Please advise or offer a "download-able" solution.
