Unable To Save File To Remote Server


My site is hosted on a server with frontpage extensions installed. As such, i can edit my html files directly on the server, but also i have been able to open excel files that are located on the server, update them and then save them directly to the server itself. That was when i used windows xp.

Within windows xp i had added my site via 'my network places' and so could open the xls files within the 'open' dialogue box in excel (2007), click on 'my network places' and then double-click my site and login to view the xls files that i want to edit.

Since i have switched to windows 7, i find that i can no longer do this. I have added my site as a 'network location' in windows 7, but if i log into my site either via windows explorer or within excel, there are no files listed - it is just blank. I can open a file in excel if i type in the exact url address for it in the 'open' dialogue box, but when i try to save it, i find that i cannot save it to the server - the error message is "document not saved".

I really don't want to go back to windows xp, so is there a way to restore the functionality that i had in xp - editing and saving excel files to my server - within windows 7?

Remote Server Support - Mapped Drives

Remote server support - explorer mapped drives - "searching for items. " Delay. I support w2k servers remotely necessitating mapping their drives (net use z: server$share /user:etc). When using xp pro this was no problem navigating the remote folders via explorer. Now with windows 7 pro, when i access a folder on the mapped drive, the "location" bar at the top of the explorer window starts showing what i'd call a search progress bar (green) from left to right and the bottom status message of "searching for items appears. This goes on for some minutes until i either get a "the specified network name is no longer available" or "the semaphore timeout period has expired" or both.

I've disabled virus scanning (avg). My guess is that windows 7 is trying to either index files on the remote drive or scan the remote drive for library additions, for my benefit. Any ideas how to make this behavior stop? I won't be able to use windows 7 as my support op sys with this kind of behavior.

Live File System Will Not Save File

Live file system will not save file!Windows 7 and udf will copy several files and then you get to the last file which is 700 meg and the space free bar under the dvd rw drive shows 1. 2 gig left. The copy starts and runs till about 350 meg left then it slows down all the way to 17 kbs and also till 10 k was left on the dvd. By this time about 5 hrs have gone by and the copy window has showed 1 hr left for 3 hrs. The cancel button won't work task manager when used will crash the system. You can force a shut down but then you have to reactivate norton with your purchase code. A search of the internet for me was no help at all.

Save As File Locations

Often when saving a file, a window pops up with several, what appear to be random, file locations listing where the file can be saved. Some of the locations are actually internet sights. I, always want to save the files to a folder on the hard drive of my computer, usually in the documents folder or a sub-folder. The list of available locations is getting longer and it's hard to find the documents folder in this list. How can i delete all the locations, especially the internet locations, and keep this drop down list manageable?

Connecting Xp To Win7 File Server

I have a windows 7 ultimate desktop that serves as my computer most of the time but also the home file server. I also have a windows vista ultimate laptop and an xp pro laptop. I have the same user accounts and passwords on all computers. The vista laptop works daily with the windows 7 computer as it's server for files and all seems to work well. However the xp laptop is not used much and is off most of the time. When i do try to use it i get "access denied" errors when i try to access the files on the windows 7 desktop. Rebooting the xp computer has no effect but rebooting the windows 7 computer resolves the issue for this current time and all work well.

How do i fix this permanently?

Downloading Issues / Save Or Open The File Message

Okay, i first noticed this issue when i was playing team fortress. Whenever you enter a server you'll be presented with a server message, which is a html page with-in the program (from my understanding). But when my computer is about to load the server message it minimizes and i get a message saying if i want to save or open the file, if i click open it will open in my browser and the in game window will be blank. Its happened to a few other programs as well, for instance when installing a program the eula will come up as a html doc within the installed and i have to scroll to accept, however it again asks me to open or save, if i open it will open in a browser.

The last place i noticed it was in outlook, whenever i get new mail, instead of doing the normal thing outlook does with mail it asks me if i want to save the file it's receiving. At first i thought my temp folder was full, cleaned it and i still get the issue. Its really limiting what i can do on my computer, could anyone help?

Default Save To Location Reg Key / Save As Location To My Documents

Can someone please tell me the reg key that controls where non office documents get saved to by default when you click save. For most things it defaults to my documents, but what controls that. I am not referring to the places bar, rather the location that comes up when the save as dialog box appears. Currently i have users who when they go to save a copy of a pdf or create one using cutepdf writer it is defaulting to a network location that we'd rather they not save to. I want that save as location to be my documents. If i manually navigate to my documents and save and then attempt to save other pdf docs they default to my docs so i know something has to be keeping track of the change. Can someone help?Os is windows 2003 server and we have a citrix environment if that makes any difference.

Should I Save Documents As Docx?

In light of the lawsuit that microsoft seems to have settled with the canadian company, it is unclear to me if i should continue saving documents in word 2007 as docx or even i will be able to use the docxs i have already saved. I am concerned because i just came across something on the web [quoting]

'the ruling means microsoft can't sell versions of word that can open documents saved in the .xml, .docx, or .docm formats that contain custom xml. Those formats were at the heart of the patent dispute.docx is the default format for the most current version of word, which is included in microsoft office 2007. Custom xml is used by businesses to link their corporate data to word documents'

I gather that since i don't have any corporate data which i knowingly link to my documents, i should be ok. But, i wish someone could explain this.

I like word 2007, and appreciate its advantages; indeed, i have come to appreciate the ribbon. (And docx does have it advantages over.doc in that the files are considerably smaller)

Save Target As Issue

From time to time i would like to be able to save pictures or mp3's, but the "save target as" feature is dull. What setting do i change to enable that "save target as" feature?

I can left-click on the link, but it will be opened directly by it's default program. If it's an mp3, i don't want to have to hunt for it on my hard drive. Ie8 is already optimized. I've already tried deleting everything in the browsing history. I've tried defaulting everything in the general, security, privacy, and advanced tabs. What's next to try?

Cannot Save Properties Of Folders

I create a folder, call it test, on my desktop and click on "organize" and then "layout" and turn off the "navigation pane" this is the way i want this folder to appear. I then close the folder. If i re-open it right away it looks as i left it. However, now i click on "windows explorer" and it does not have a "navigation pane" which it needs, so i click on "organize" then "layout" and then "navigation pane". I finish with "windows explorer" and close it and go back to my "test" folder and lo and behold it has a "navigation pane". Shouldn't i be able to maintain different appearances for different folders and applications?

Cannot Save Pdfs From Some Websites

I have windows 7 home premium, internet explore 8 and adobe reader 9. 3. I have found that when i get a pdf from a website and the url ends in .pdf i have no problems viewing or saving it. However, it the url doesn't end in pdf, adobe reader loads and properly displays the pdf but when i click the save button to save a copy, nothing happens. Has anyone else experienced this problem? Any ideas on how to correct it? I'm pretty sure that i am up to date on all versions. This is only a problem on my new computer with windows 7. I can still go to the sites on my vista laptop and save copies.

Two Open / Save Dialogs

Windows 7 appears to have 2 different open/save dialog boxes. One simply has a few icons on the left (recent places, desktop, libraries, computer, network). The other has the complete file system, including favorites folders, on the left. Is there some reason there are 2 of these?  Is there any way to set windows to always use the more complete dialog box, or is this something hard-coded into the program i'm using at the time? If it's the latter, then i have a suggestion for sp1 - get rid of the limited dialog box so windows 7 will have a more useful and consistent interface.

Dns Server

I have a windows dell inspiron. I have a wired connection to the router and there is a problem with the dns. It says there is a problem with the dns server that it can't fix. My other computer is wireless and connects to the internet no problem. I can enter the ip address and get to the website but not the www.Msn.com type address. I spent hours with first my internet provider, then microsoft, then dell (who assures me there is no hardware problem). As best they can figure it is a third party software conflict causing the problem.

My latest attempt to solve the problem was to install windows 7 (before i had windows vista). After 3 hours of going online with no problem the same "dns configuration" problem cropped up. During all these problems i am able to download torrents using utorrent. Does anyone have any ideas? I am at a loss.

Error - Do Not Have Permission To Save To That Folder

When i download files and try to save them to my folders in 'd' drive, i get an error that says i do not have permission to save to that folder. I was a vista user and created these files and folders on 'd' drive. When vista crashed, i began using win7rc for many months and had no problems accessing the folders and files on 'd' drive. Yesterday i installed rtm. Now when i download files and try to save them to my folders in 'd' drive, i get an error that says i do not have permission to save to that folder. I am the only user and am an administrator.

I used the same user name on the install of rtm that i had in rc. I did change the computer name during the install of rtm. How can i regain control of my folders. I do not have any trouble reading the files in the folders. I have set up my libraries the same as all user files are in 'd' drive.

Save As To A Usb Thumb Drive

My usb thumb drive is not cooperating. I can drag (or send) a file to it from the desktop if i "provide administrator permission to copy to this folder. " I can create a new file on the thumb drive. I can even open and edit the new txt file - but "access is denied" if i try to save the file (to its original name and place).

Some applications will save to the thumb drive with an odd message, but the real trouble is an application that flat out refuses to save to the thumb drive. Wordpad says "you don't have permission to save in this location.contact the administrator to obtain permission. "

How to fix the thumb drives?

Unable To Save Driver Downloads

I was running vista and my hard drive stopped working and would not repair. I replaced the hard drive and took the opportunity to upgrade with a full install of windows 7. I have a sony vaio media centre pc vgxtp3z/b and went to sony website to download the original drivers. I got as far as the chipset and graphics but none of the other drivers will save. After a while of trying to download, the system says the file could not be saved as unable to read source file'. This has also affected other downloads i have tried. For example the same happens when i try and download itunes.

I would be grateful if anyone could tell me why this is happening and how i can fix it as i seem only to be able to do some thing on my pc now.

Cannot Save To C Drive After Windows Update

I have windows 7 and as of yesterday after a windows update i cannot save files to my c drive. I can copy and paste files from an external drive to my c drive but if i try to save something to my c drive from word, paint, etc it says "a required privilege is not held by the client" and if i try to save to a folder within the c drive i get the error "you don't have permission to save in this location.contact the administrator to obtain permission. "

I have not changed any permissions and i have double checked that the permissions are correct. I have also tried to take ownership of the drive and it was successful but that did not resolve the issue. I can save to my documents but not the c drive or any of my personal folders within it. Also, system restore is not an option as every time i try to do system restore it tells me that it has not completed successfully.

Any ideas what could be causing this issue?

Word Document Save Issue

We recently purchased a windows 7 system and transferred all of our word 2003 documents. I am able to access and edit all of them when they are saved on the desktop or in my documents folder. But, when i open the files that are saved on my "c" drive, the window name has "read-only" in it and i can't go in to edit them. I know this is probably a security setting somewhere (either in the word program or on my "c" drive). But i can't find it.

Cannot Save Changes On Live Movie Maker

I have windows movie maker. When i save a movie and name it, and try to close out the window, it asks me if i want to save changes. I can't 'not' save changes, but when i do, and rename, somehow, several videos go into one video. I save, then name and when i try to close out, it has that pop up asking me if i want to save changes. If i cancel or say no, it comes back, so i change. Does someone understand what i'm doing wrong?

Unable To Save Movies To Laptop

I have been trying to transfer some info from my panasonic vdr_d160 camcorder. At first i tried via usb, although the laptop recognized that there was a device windows media player wouldn't allow me to view or tnfr. I have now inserted the disk after formatting it in the camcorder. I can see and view the videos however i want to copy these onto the play lists so i can burn scenes to dvd later and it wont allow me.

Is there any other way i can transfer data from the dvd disk so i can use this later for burning to dvd? I'm very new at this.

Ok i have now figured out to connect the camcorder via the usb, go into windows movie maker and select 'import from device'. Now i've done this but it seems that out of the 1hr video i imputed i have about 30 secs of video in the movie maker. It seems to have forgotten most of it and it took longer to import than the video there. This is getting really frustrating as i am hoping to make a video of my late grandfather for my grandmother and the scene's i seem to have lost are the ones featuring him!
