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".

Snap Feature Does Not Work On Inside Of Dual Monitor Setup

I have windows 7 home premium x64 fully updated. So far it's great. But i have two monitors, primary 1440x900 and secondary 1280x1024 with the secondary monitor on the right of the primary monitor. When i try to "snap" a window to the edge of either monitor that is next to the other monitor, nothing happens. I was wondering if this was a typical problem people were having or if it was just me and if there was any way to make it work or if there was a patch for it. (Google chrome's built-in "snap" feature can use the inside of the monitors).

Hardware Raid 1 Setup After Win 7 Installed

Can hardware raid-1 be set up after windows 7 is installed? Our company recently purchased a new development machine that with dual sata drives that were supposed to be configured for raid-1 mirroring, but were instead set as ide. Embarrassingly, we didn't notice until after we had installed and updated all of our development tools, etc.

I have since set up the second drive as a mirrored volume using the disk management utility, which will be fine if it is our only sensible option, but if there is a straightforward way we can set up hardware raid 1, that would be preferable. In my search for an answer, i found a post by another user and what looks like an excellent solution. But when i try to use the repair option to add the drivers for my motherboard (intel dp35dp), the iastor drivers fail to install and windows won't boot until i revert my bios setting to "configure sata as raid" back to ". As ide".

Program Install Error - A File That Is Required Cannot Be Installed

Program install error: a file that is required cannot be installed because the cabinet file setup has an invalid digital signature. Cabinet file setup 11. Cab has an invalid digital signature. When trying to install a software program on my windows 7 netbook, an installer information panel stated "a file that is required cannot be installed because the cabinet file setup 11. Cab has an invalid digital signature. This may indicate that the cabinet file is corrupt".

Thus the program would not load. Is the problem with the software or with the windows 7 netbook? If the netbook is the problem, can the faulty cabinet file be removed and replaced with a correct file? If so, how?

X86 File - Internet Explorer 8 Will Not Work

I have recently bought windows 7 and installed it and i have ran into a few problems. First my system is a 64-bit system and i have x86-files.

1) here is my main problem internet explorer 8 will not work when it is started from the x86 file. However, if i start internet explorer from my x64 file it will work correctly.

2) i have no idea how to uninstall the x86 file of internet explorer 8 so that i can reinstall it. When ever i attempt to uninstall it tells me that trusted installer is stopping me.

More information. I have other programs saved on x84 files and they work fine example: microsoft office, adobe, etc. So i'm wondering if there is not a problem with the internet explorer 8 file.

Here is my question how can i uninstall the x84 file of internet explorer so that i can reinstall it.

I found out some more information. I found out how to turn ie8 but i still dont know how to uninstall the program here is the website that showed me how to turn it off: www.Digitaltech.co. Cc/504/how-to-uninstallremove-internet-explorer-8-from-windows-7-build-7048/

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?

User Sets File Association Now System Restore Doesn't Work

On a brand new laptop the user copied some word files over, and they opened on the new computer just fine. Then they copied some more .doc files and they could not open them, so (they claim) they choose word as the default file association (which is fine, except it should not have prompted for that in the first place). After that all the word document shortcuts they created on the desktop changed to a shortcut with ie's 'e' symbol - clicking them flashes up a screen that instantly goes away (ie i assume) and ie's download file dialog then opens.

Further, an attempt to open ie acts the same way. Worse, running system restore does the same thing - flash, then ie files downloaded dialog - asking if i want to open one of the files listed (which are the . Lnk files to the word documents on the desktop). So short of doing a full system restore, and also short of manually copying the registry files from the last restore point (which i'm not sure is even possible on a windows 7 drive) what can i do to resolve this mess?

Ie Download Manager Feature

This might be more of a suggestion for a future feature in microsoft internet explorer, but is there any sort of download manager available in the ie8 browser? Something along the lines of getright, such that it resumes downloads if they time out or have to be paused?

I think it is odd that we have exponential increases in hard drive space and online data storage, but ie still stalls when downloading or uploading files. I am taking an online class through my university but i am unable to download files very easily because ie8 keeps stalling and ending the download early, sometimes also being unable to resume it even when i try to re-download the file immediately. I was hoping getright would solve my problem but my school uses a forwarding procedure to download the videos (e.g. , Clicking the link downloads "download. Mov", which then changes to the actual file link "class. Mp4"). I am unable to find the full link for class. Mp4 and so am kinda in limbo for now.

Does ie8 have any sort of built-in download manager or have one available as an add-on?

.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?

Office 2010 Favorites Feature

I'm looking for a couple features in office 2010 (just upgraded from office 2003). The first features is saving favorites from excel and word. In 2003 i would save a file link from the network or my hard drive as a favorite in internet explorer. Thus clicking the favorite in i.e. Would open the excel or word file on the network drive. The second feature i'm looking for is how to modify and save an attachment from an email without sending it or doing a save as to the hard drive. In 2003 you could open a file and it save it without having to do a save as. Hopefully this makes sense. Am running windows 7 pro 32bit on a new system.

Aero - Peek Feature Disabled

The peek at desktop function on the taskbar is grayed-out. The peek at desktop checkbox in the taskbar and start menu properties is checked, but also grayed-out. In system properties, performance options dialog box, everything is checked except save taskbar thumbnail previews. I ran the aero troubleshooter and it returned a result of no problems detected. Obviously there is a disconnect elsewhere. I am using windows 7 pro, 64-bit, with an hp pavilion elite hpe-180t desktop. Any suggestions?

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?

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?

Feature Request - Folder Up Arrow Icon

I know that vista and 7 probably have great folder navigation advancements, but i would still ask that you add the up arrow icon back to windows explorer toolbars. I run into situations many times a day when i would use the up arrow if i had it, but instead either use the keyboard shortcut or have to manually select folders from either the folder view or the path. I use many files across many projects at work and home, and this would be a very welcome item to bring back from the past.

I check my start menu and i have two window xp mode short cuts. One opens and none of my program icons are there, the other won't open. Any help would be great. I am not a wizard, so lots of details please.

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.

Error - 1612 - Feature Transfer Error

Error:- 1612 - feature transfer error - i cannot uninstall a specific driver that was installed from a cd. I want to uninstall a driver for redundant device. I can see it stuck there in my control panel/programs & features list. The driver software was bundled on the same cd as the application software that came with the device, which is a grabme video/audio capture stick by agk nordic, (who seem to have gone off the radar!). The application software is by arcsoft who are disclaiming on the driver software for the device.

Evidently the software was ill-suited for use with windows 7 and although patches were available they weren't effective. If i could have my time over again i would have left well alone, but as they say, fools rush in where angels fear to tread and you learn only by your mistakes! I have now purchased another device and different software which is configured correctly for windows 7 and it works!

In my control panel/programs & features list it is entitled, "usb audio/video driver" i have attempted to uninstall it from here and failed and also by reinserting the cd and that failed too.

When i use the control panel/programs & features method i get this information/message box: the installation source for this product is not available. Verify that the source exists and that you can access it. C:windowsinstaller612f7. Msi

Using the setup cd i am given two options. The first is to repair and the second to remove. This option screen comes up because there is something related to it already on my system, having already installed it, (even though it doesn't work!).

Whether i choose either option my system generates similar information/message boxes. I have tried both methods of uninstallation with and without the device plugged in. Basically, they are telling me that: usb video/audio driver. Setup could not find a file on the specified path or disk. Please check that the proper disk is inserted or specify a new path. Unable to locate file

C:usersbrians~1appdatalocaltemp{f2a8acd9-1f63-4565-82db-3e07b9f7fe2e}usb videoaudio driver. Msi

This is the attempt through the control panel/programs & feature. The path is displayed slightly differently when the attempt is made using the setup cd in that it is: eaa60d5d-06d8-476f-8875-5d8d6d753ec1}

I click on retry and i get the same message, so i click on cancel and i get this message: feature transfer error. Error:- 1612. The installation source for this product is not available. Verify that the source disk exists and that you can access it. There is not a great deal i can do here apart from click on ok and abandon the exercise!

How To Setup Email?

How do you set up email using windows 7? I just bought a laptop with windows 7. I was using outlook express on a computer with xp previously without any problems. With the new laptop, i was using the comcast website for email. I frequently send data files as attachments for my work. When i sent it through the comcast email it when through okay on my end but the formatting was messed up on the other end. These are small files, approximately 84 kb. I have also found out that i do not have a default email sent up. Before i screw something up, i thought i would see what suggestions you have for which email service to use and how to set up the email default.

Headset Setup With Win 7

I recently purchased windows 7 and installed it onto my pc (before i had xp). My pc is capable of running it (3. 4ghz, 6 gig 6, ati 5770). However, i cannot get my headset to work with windows 7. The headset has an orange and a pink jack. I have plugged these jacks into the back of my computer in the corresponding jacks several times but windows has never detected anything. I have tried the "add a device" feature and windows has come up with nothing. Additionally on the audio device manager it says that speakers, headsets and microphones are all not plugged in, even though they are. Anyone know how to configure these with windows 7?

Cannot Setup Wmc To Run Tv

I have a new computer running w7 64-bit, with a hauppage hvr-1850 card. I also have digital cable with a motorola dct700 box running standard digital cable from my local cable service provider. I am trying to set-up tv on my computer using windows media centre. However, i can only get as far as the screen that deals with testing the remotes channel changing ability. It works fine on testing - so i check the appropriate box saying that "the set-box changed the channel correctly. "  I am then taken to a second small window which says"enter a channel number" with a checkbox "ok". This takes me back to the first window again.

The problem is that i get into a never-ending loop between these two windows. The next button at the bottom of the first window won't work to confirm satisfactory channel changing and i am only permitted to go back or cancel - neither of which i want to do. Please can you help as this is driving me nuts. S an alternative, i have tried to set up wintv7 and am having no more success, hence my use of wmc as this is supposed to be easier process.
