Cannot View Chinese Characters With Ie8


After installing recommended updates yesterday, a window popped up and asked if i wanted to install ie 8. I had been using ie 7 so i thought i might switch. I did not do any custom settings while installing ie 8. My default homepage has always been set to google.com. Hk which displays contents in chinese. When i was using ie 7, everything was fine and i could see all the chinese characters; but after i switched to ie 8, i can no longer see them. I tried adding the chinese (hk) and chinese (prc) languages at tools> internet options> language> language preference, but it didn't work.

I also tried the various chinese options at encoding, but it didn't work either. I should also mention that i have auto-select turned on in encoding. Fyi i am using windows xp home edition version 2002 service pack 3.

Chinese Characters Suddenly Not Showing On Screen

Chinese characters suddenly did not show up on screen in windows 7 ultimate x64. I used "quick" chinese input method in windows 7 ultimate x64 rtm to input traditional chinese characters to notepad or other applications. However, i found that after typing the chinese characters for some time, suddenly the chinese characters will *no* longer display on screen but instead showing the english letters on screen. But the "quick" input method is still in effect in the language bar. I need to close that application and restart it in order to resume typing the traditional chinese characters. But after some time, this problem will happen again, and i found that it is very annoying to close and restart the application repeatedly.could microsoft investigate this and provide a hotfix to solve the problem ?

Ie8 Crashes When View Web Pages With Flash

I've got 2 windows 7 machines, but on 64-bit processors with the 64-bit version of windows 7 installed. On both of them if we go to a web page with flash on it, and then close internet explorer 8, it will, always crash.

Why is that?  I can avoid if, if i go to some other web page without flash on it, but man that can be hard to remember and sometimes the flash isn't obvious because it isn't moving, so its easy to forget to go to some web page withou a flash item on it, but that's not the point. The point is why in heck does ie8 crash just because there's a flash element on the page?

Unable To View Thumbnails Using Detailed View

I am unable to view thumbnails in windows explorer while i am using detailed view. I only can see them when they are extra large. I can't see them in small, not in list, not in medium, just in extra large. I hate them extra large. I want to view them in detailed view. This is what i have done so far:under folder options/view i "unchecked" the "always show icons never thumbnails".

That did not work. I did go through tons of problems regarding thumbnails in the forums, but could not find a solution to my problem. I am using windows 7 professional 64 bit. I never had a problem with thumbnails in windows xp. Now i am struggling and i want to view my thumbnails again. I just don't know what else i can do. I must be missing something in the settings; but what?

How To Use Chinese Language?

I have read some of the q/a concerning chinese language, and am more confused than before. I understand that chinese language capability needs a special download. My initial question is whether one can switch from english to chinese (and vice versa) simply by hitting a toggle key, or are things more cumbersome? Other questions: what form/s of chinese input is/are available? Is there a chinese-english or english-chinese dictionary capability?

Printer Prints Incorrect Characters

Since windows 7 does not display all of the characters i need i used 'eudcedit' in order to create my own. This works great in windows. I have no problem using the characters i create in programs. The problem arises when i go to print a newly created character on my hp p3005 laserjet printer. The printer does not print the characters which i create. According to my hp pcl 5 manual i can create my own characters. Why doesn't the driver which accompanied windows 7 for my printer inform the printer of how to create a character which i have created?How can i solve this problem?Programmer for visual c+ 6. 0, and microsoft office including access

Chinese Programs In Win7

So i have been using my old computer with windows xp on it for a few years, and recently decided to get a new one. The store clerk ask me if i want to use windows 7 home or pro, being just an average user, i surf the web, play some online game, maybe do some pictures editing. I don't do any program writing or some crazy computerize work, so i picked windows 7 home premium.

Then after i got home and start to reinstall/update all the programs that i need to use, i then found out all my programs that display chinese turn into a bunch of "?" After some searching on the internet, i found out windows 7 home premium doesn't display chinese in programs. Seriously, why is something that has been available with a basic version of windows all of sudden need to be upgrade to windows 7 ultimate to use? This isn't even offer in windows 7 pro. I didn't even know about it before i purchase the computer.

I mean, if microsoft wants to make more money, at least offer the language packs in the home version. So now what can i do? I can't even find my old windows xp disc, so i can't switch back to windows xp. Do i have to pay another cad$250 to get the ultimate just for a simple reason to read chinese in programs? Is there any other way for me to display chinese in programs?

Chinese Language Cannot Be Read

I am using an english version of vista. I sometimes go to different chinese websites and use different chinese programs. I sometimes can see the characters, but sometimes i can’t. How can i solve this problem? I tried going to the window update website and downloaded both the traditional and simplified chinese language pack, but they still will not solve the problem. There is also an error message when i am installing them. "An error occurred while copying file tw . Inf . Cannot copy file to destination directory"

Can't View Flash

Ok, i have a problem. I've just downloaded ie8, thinking it would help, but the problem occurred in both ie7 & ie8. Ok, so on some sites i visit, flash files won't load. . Swf file extensions mainly. Some sites (like virtual worlds) work. But flash files, and embedded flash files don't. Here's an example.

This link won't show, it shows as a box with an 'x' in it (like a missing picture): www.Gardenpartyworld.com

This link, however, works, it's the actual flash of a virtual world: www.Gardenpartyworld.com/game

I cannot figure out how to make normal flash files visible in ie8, any response is appreciated.

Not Able To View Online Videos

Problem viewing internet videos, i recently purchased a toshiba satellite laptop with windows 7 (including wmp) installed. My browser is internet explorer. When i try to watch video on news channels (or youtube, or any other medium), the video will often stop midway, or after several seconds, and never resume. One channel prompted me to download flash player, which i did, but it has made no difference. The only system protection i have installed is microsoft security essentials. I've read several of the other posts which seem related to this, but they don't seem to have the answer i need. I'd sure appreciate any advice to address this problem.

Cannot View Folders And Programs

Ive got issues with windows 7 that are progressively getting worse. It began with live messenger, affects mozilla and has now affected opening general folders. When i attempt to open a folder, it appears as an icon in the taksbar, and when i click to view it, it expands onto the screen, but keeps moving to the right of the screen and off the side almost instantly, meaning i cannot view it.

The folder/program are always active at the time, because when i have multiples open (eg watching movies in mozzila pages) i can see the thumbnails changing and moving etc. I managed to rid the mozilla problem by completely reinstalling it, but no luck with msn, and now i cant even open my computer or other folders. However when i run windows in safe mode i do not have this problem. When i right click the icon/s on the task bar i am only given options to view frequent folders (which does not work), pin to task bar, close window and open explorer(which also does not work). Ideas?

File Organization In List View

I just bought a new computer which has windows 7- i've used xp for the last 8 years on various computers, and there are many things which are extremely jarring. I've managed to figure out, tolerate, or get rid of most of the problematic areas, but i really can't figure this one out.

When i put folders into list view (my default since windows 95), all the files in folders are listing left-to-right (for example, amy.doc, amy2.doc, and boy.doc are all on the top of the file listing, and then the next line starts with boy2.doc, curmudgeon.doc, etc. ). Ever since windows 95, they've listed up-to-down (amy.doc, then amy2.doc directly below that). Sorry if that's confusing- i'm stuck on an old laptop with no imaging or ftp programs, so i can't provide any screen-shots of what i mean.

I can't stand this new way, i can't find anything because of it, and if there is a way to change it to the old way, i would very much love if someone could tell me how.

Unable To View Online Video

Embedded windows media player i am trying to view a movie embedded on a webpage. I know the server is working, as i can view the movie on another computer using the same network connection i am using now. The video continues to say "connecting to media", then finally says "ready" but doesn't play the movie. The error says that it encountered an error while attempting to play the file. If i go to web help i get this error message windows media player c00d11b1 my sound device is not having an issue, so i don't see why that would be the problem. Has anyone encountered this issue or have any idea of a way to fix it?

Missing Icon View Options

After a fresh install of windows 7 64bit (all updates installed) it seems my folders are missing the option to view the files icons by groups, eg modified, type etc in the 'organize' drop down list in windows exploreras shown here in http://www.Sevenforums.com/tutorials/3952-file-folder-arrangement-group-sort-stack.html option 2 – my folders are missing the sort by and group by options, these option don't appear at all in the drop down list. It was present in my last w7 install, but it's not present in this install.

If i right click in a vacant space in the folder a window appears and in that window is my missing view options (group by, sort by etc) that should be in the 'organize' drop down list appear (along with the normal options that appear) why they aren't where they should be has got me stumped.

My Documents Renamed View Libraries

This is a windows 7 question -ok - this is a little complicated. I have a windows 2003 server in a domain environment. This server houses my users public directories. So under my "users" directory - bob smith has a "bsmith" directory and jane doe has a "jdoe" directory and so on. My users local "my documents" folders are mapped to their respective directory on the server. So if they click on their my documents folder - they are actually looking at their folder on the server. All of my users have a folder with their name and everyone can see and modify each others files.

(This is by design) now that i am bringing some windows 7 machines online - those folders are being renamed to "my documents". They aren't actually renamed - its just a view. Only my windows 7 users folders are being renamed and only my windows 7 users see the renamed folders as "my documents" so now - if i have 10 windows 7 users - and i go to my "users" directory on the server. I would normally see a folder for each person.

But now i see 10 folders that say "my documents" and the non windows 7 users still have their names listed normally. So i now have no idea which of these 10 my document folders is bob smiths. This only looks this way on a windows 7 machines. If i look in the "users" directory from an xp machine - they look normal. So this tells me this is some sort of windows 7 "view" or library. I need to turn this view off. Any ideas?

Ie Auto Switching To Compatibility View

I am developing a web page but when clicking a certain link, it causes the following message to appear:- "a problem displaying [address] caused internet explorer to refresh the webpage using compatibility view". The page renders fine in every other browser i have tried (firefox, google chrome, safari, opera), it is only ie that causes this message. The page still renders fine, but i want to stop the message coming up.

I have identified the code that is causing this to happen
 
.


If i remove the overflow:scroll bit of the code it stops the problem, but this breaks my site since the part of the page no longer has scrollbars even when the size of the contents means they are needed - so users cannot see some of the page.could you please confirm if this is a known issue with ie and if there is a workaround?

View / Add Printers To Client Pc

We have a windows 2003 domain and a mix of windows xp and windows 7 pcs. I am using a windows 7 pc. I can view a remote machines simply by typingcomputername just fine. With xp machines i can view they're locally installed printers and make changes to them. On windows 7 clients, i cannot. I get "you do not have sufficient rights to perform this operation". I cannot view the printers on any machine nor can i add a printer to any machines.

Once again. Everything works fine on windows xp clients. How can i correct this? I turned on network discovery and file and print sharing. It didn't seem to make any difference. Even when clicking on the 'view remote printers' of any windows 7 client pc, it shows 0 items even though there are 5 printers installed locally. I am a domain admin with local admin rights on all pcs. What is going on?

It changed when i put in my flash drive (staples flash drive: 4 gigabites).

I have searched all over the internet and i cannot find a single solution, even on microsoft's website. Please let me know when you have a solution as soon as possible.

Cannot View Shared Files On Network

I have a home wireless network with three nodes, a desktop named desktop hard wired to a wireless router, a wireless notebook named pc-user, and a network printer, also hard wired to the router, that works with both computers. The desktop runs windows 2000 professional while the notebook runs windows 7 home premium. Appropriate folders on both computers are set for sharing. Neither of the users on the desktop, administrator or me by name, require passwords. The desktop can see and use shared files on the notebook.

The notebook shows the desktop as a node on the network but when i click on the desktop icon on the notebook network window to open a desktop folder i get a pop up window that says, "pc-user my name, a block to type in a password and an error message that says logon failure. " No amount of fiddling, creating passwords on the desktop and then using them on the notebook when trying to get into the desktop will work. I keep getting the logon failure message.
