Where To Report / Confirm Bug?

i think i've found a bug in windows 7. Where to report or confirm this? This forum?

P. S. To make it more clear, here is the situation:

Title: problem entering backslash character in standard open file dialog

Steps to reproduce
Use any program which uses standard open dialog (i will demonstrate on notepad), make czech keyboard available in the system.
Start notepad
Switch to czech keyboard
Choose file -> open
Try to enter backslash in the filename edit box using right alt /altgr/ + q key combination

Expected
Backslash character ('') appears

Observed
Nothing happens

Known workarounds
Use us keyboard (or other where backslash char. Can be typed directly)
Or
Switch to us keyboard and back to czech - right alt + q will start to work for this instance of dialog

Downloaded Files Are Vanishing

I am helping my cousin with her machine, and this one has me a bit baffled. She is running ie8 on a vista machine. Whenever a download occurs, whether you choose "run" for an executable, "save" for any file, or "open" for any file, the file completes the download, but it never arrives at its destination. Saved files are never in the destination folder, opened files never open in their respective programs, and run executables never start. Searches for the files by name come up with nothing.

I have tested two things. First, files that can be opened within plugins, such as a pdf, open just fine as long as they are opened within ie. If a pdf is downloaded to the hdd with the expectation that it will open upon completion using adobe as a separate program, the download finishes, and nothing happens. The file is nowhere to be found.

As a baseline, i wanted to know if another browser would work. I got chrome onto the machine, and i do not have this issue, but my cousin would rather have ie back. Any suggestions?

.kmz Files Downloaded As Compressed Folders

I've been messing around with . Kmz files. If i double click on the kmz file on my local hard drive, it opens in google earth as i'd expect and right click->open with only has google earth in the options. So on my local hard drive, . Kmz files are working great. However, if i click on a link like this http://caiels.com/local/ivybridge. Kmz. I get a dialogue showing a file name of ivybridge.zip and it tries to open in 'compressed folders'.

Also if i link from http://maps.google.com/?Q=http://caiels.com/local/ivybridge. Kmz and click the 'view in google earth' option, it downloads as a zip file. So i hope i'm asking this question in the correct place. Why does explorer work fine with kmz, yet internet explorer treats them as a zip file? And is there anything i can put in the link to force it to download as . Kmz and therefore open in google earth?

Problem With Nvidia Graphics Driver - Solution Could Not Be Downloaded

I click on solve pc issues (the flag) and it says address a problem with nvidia graphics driver. I click it and it says "this solution could not be downloaded".

Most likely causes: your computer was unable to download the solution at this time. Check to make sure your computer is connected to the internet, and then try to download the solution again later.

I am connected to the internet, and windows update works, web browsing works etc. Why isn't it downloading the solution?

Setup File Must Be Downloaded And Installed Before This Feature Will Work

Trying to install xp mode and virtual pc, i set the bios and did everything to the letter, twice. It's in my program list but it keeps telling me "the setup file must be downloaded and installed before this feature will work". I have a new hp pavilion dv7 64 bit that came with vista. I upgraded today at the geek squad to 7 ultimate so i can run autocad14 software. I have now spent 6 hours reading, reinstalling.

Twice i've downloaded 500megs and installed the new xp mode and virtual pc, i set the bios and did everything to the letter, twice. It's in my program list but it keeps telling me "the setup file must be downloaded and installed before this feature will work".

Install Error 2329 And Saving Downloaded Files

Increasingly i have noticed repeated errors concerning file access on windows 7. While uninstalling a program, i will get the 2329 error halfway through, and also errors while trying to save downloaded files (i assume something to do with 0 length files), messages informing me that the file cannot be saved.

I believe that these two errors are connected, and are caused by the slow response of the os and anti-virus software, keeping handles to files open longer than is required, leading to these errors.

 Any thoughts?

Non Valid Key Product

I recently purchased the windows 7 home premium upgrade pack and had it installed on my laptop. I also activated them. The same day after i installed windows 7 i got a virus in my system so i used the cds to format my laptop. After i formated it i checked to see if the windows were activated which they weren't. When i tried to use the key in the product case it gave me an error saying that the code was ment for update version only and not for full installs.

Does the activation , i did before formating the laptop, have anything to do with it?How can i activate them again?Should i install another version of windows and then update them?Would this solve my problem? Or is there any simpler way to do it?Please answer as soon as possible you can.

Exe Not A Valid Win32 Application

I just received my hp dv6z from hp.com and turned it on and set everything up correctly i believe. I consider myself somewhat knowledgeable when it comes to computers but i can't figure this out. ".exe is not a valid win32 application" after every single time i want to go to setup of something also says "this installation package could not be opened" on some different files i'm trying to install. My downloads also do not complete all the time, they get to like 90% then stop going up.

Im running windows 7 and already reformatted once with the recovery thing only to come back to the same situation. Right when i get into the computer after setting it up after a reformat i have full access like a normal computer but then it starts to give me win32 error and download issues. I just transferred a downloaded file by usb from my workout computer to the new one that doesn't open files correctly and it works fine installing. Something with the download process is jacking up the file or something not sure!

Product Key Is Not A Valid Windows Sku

I had vista home premium running on my desktop and vista basic on my laptop. I purchased an upgrade to win7 home premium through digital river (using a student offer) and promptly upgraded my desktop- no problem there. I also upgraded my laptop which worked fine, but now it says that the trial period is over and that i need to activate windows. The product key that i purchased was apparently only for one machine.

I bought a new product key off the internet (ebay) but the activation screen tells me that the product key is not a valid windows sku. The ebay vendor gave me a download to create a disk for the win7 software which i did and tried installing it using the "upgrade" option and the "custom" option. Both methods will not accept the product key.

Do i need to either:
1. Reinstall vista and then do the win 7 again, or
2. Buy another product key again?

Error - .exe Is Not A Valid Win32 Application

I am consistently having problems downloading programs from the internet. I am confident that it is not a corrupted file issue as i am downloading (or trying to!) From dependable sources - hp, autodesk, etc. These error messages occur both when i try to just run the .exe or save it and then run it. I have tried the en. Kioskea.net link i seen in many posts and that is no help. Perhaps a clue is that i received a file directly from the source via email and the file ran fine. Seems to imply it's a downloading or .exe setting issue, but i am not savvy enough to figure it out.

Install Product Key Not Valid Problem

My wife recently purchased and installed windows 7 on her pc, and i installed it shortly after. The product key didn't work so i found a universal one on the internet that seemed to work fine. Now i am being alerted or warned that the product key is not valid and i need a new one, or something to that affect. Cant the owner use the product key on more than one computer? Do i need to uninstall it and revert back to vista, or buy another one and use that key? I want to keep windows 7 but i don't want to have to reinstall it again, it took too long. Any recommendations or solutions?

Install Upgrade - Product Key Not Valid

I am a graduate student at at univ. Of maryland, college park. Until around a month ago, i was using windows vista, but it kept giving me problems and viruses. So, i decided to switch to windows 7. The windows 7 cd is available at subsidized rates for staff members at the university. Since i am a teaching assistant, i could avail of this discount. Although i had asked for the upgrade cd, when i was installing windows 7, the cd asked me whether i wanted to upgrade an existing os or install a fresh copy.

I was not aware that the upgrade cd cannot be used for fresh install. I thought that if the upgrade cd cannot be used for a fresh install, then the cd would not give me the option of a fresh install. But since it did give the option, i decided to erase the windows vista files and install windows 7 afresh, since windows vista was giving problems. So, i installed windows 7 ultimate afresh, and i was asked to activate it. Its been about a month, and when i try to activate it, it says that the product key is not valid (that is, it can only be used for upgrade) and hence i am not using a legal windows copy.

But i was not told that the cd can not be used for fresh install while installing, and was given an option to either upgrade or install afresh, which resulted in me deleting my original windows vista files. I immediately contacted the university it helpdesk, but they do not have the fresh windows 7/vista cds for graduate students, they only have update cds, and advised me to contact microsoft. What should i do now? Can i get a new product key?

Upgrade To New Hard Drive - Product Key Not Valid

My hard drive crashed - trying to install windows 7 upgrade to new hard drive - product key not valid. I upgraded my computer running vista to windows 7 with an upgrade disk - no problem. My hard drive crashed so i now have a brand new hard drive in the computer.

I boot from the windows 7 dvd but of course the product key is invalid because there is no operating system on the new hard drive. Is there a way to get around this without having to install an operating system on my new hard drive first?

*.msi Not A Valid Win32 Application Error When Installing A Security Program

Whenever i try and install a security program i get the following: "*. Msi not a valid win 32 application". Noboby seems able to help. Vendors are all blaming another vendor. Meanwhile, i do not have any security on my computer. I am not terribly computer literate so please bear with me. I have rolled back, tried to run as an administrator, have downloaded software umpteen times (to satisfy vendors). This has something to do with microsoft installers. Anyone else had this problem?

A2c Files Downloaded As Zip Files

If you go to alice.org and try to download one of their image files, ie8 changes the extension from a2c to zip making the file unusable unless the user manually changes the file extension.

http://alice.org/index.php?Page=gallery/amusement park/index

In our school network users are not allowed to change the file extension so that does not work. I found that the user when downloading has to change the file type to all files and change the file extension then. This is a bother to have to remember. When i tried with a different browser (chrome) the a2c file was recognized correctly. The computers in my school are laptops running windows xp. At home my desktop runs windows 7 and the problem is there as well. There was no problem with ie7.

Copy Of Windows 7 Is Not Original

I saw that there was a new release for my laptop's bios. I downloaded the new bios which is version 208 and installed it using winflash a program for asus laptops for updating the bios. After the installation it said that it is going to restart the computer. But it failed to do it and windows notified me about the problem and said it will search for a solution online. Then i decided to manually restart my laptop. After the restart on the lower right side it said that my copy of windows 7 is not original.

However i am using the 64 bit windows 7 that the asus installed in my laptop. I did not installed any other version. I restarted my laptop again and it asked me to enter a product key. I write down the one that is under my laptop which is for windows 7 home premium 64 bit and it said that my key is not eligible. What do i need to do now? I wish i haven't upgraded my bios.

Cannot Play Digital Copy

I just bought a new blu ray movie and it includes a digital copy for my pc. I have a nice computer(amd phenom 2x2 550. With 8 gigs of ram. Decent video card. Gtx 260 )

I recently upgraded to 64 bit and windows 7. Home premium.

Well i cannot play that digital copy on my pc. It installed it. But when i tried to run it an error came up. Don't know what the error is. But the window pop up says. Windows media player encountered a problem while playing this file.

I went to web help and they currently have no information on this error.

I am probably doing something wrong. Because i have heard many people play their movies via digital copy on their pc's .

I do not have my pc hooked up to any tv .

Can't Copy From A Usb Drive

I can copy files from a cd why can't i copy from a usb drive? I know this is hard to believe but i'm having even more trouble with windows 7 security than i had with vista. At least with vista it was easy to turn off uac. So far with windows 7 i have only succeeded in turning down message levels so i get fewer messages for each failure.

I am trying to copy files from a windows 7 desktop to a usb drive and then to a different machine's windows 7 desktop. The target win 7 os say's i don't have permission even though i'm using an admin user account not a standard user account. The files on the original desktop were copied their from a cd without any problems being encountered.
