File Location For Windows Fax And Scan Program


Where is the file location for "windows fax and scan" program. I had to rebuild my computer because i lost my motherboard. I used a new hdd and still have my old drive which is intact. I have all my data except for windows fax and scan files. I just cannot locate them. I see a fax folder which appears to be empty except for the welcome message. Even in the new system i recently received a fax and see it within the program but cannot find where it is stored on the drive. Any suggestion?

Saving Scan File As Date And Time Using Win 7 Fax And Scan

A friend has a brother 8840d all-in-one printer. He used to be able to use the scan function on the printer and send the scan in .jpg to the computer running xp with a unique name that had the date and time embedded in the name ie: 111709214200001.jpg.
 
He doesn't have the windows 7 driver to use the scan function as above but the windows 7 fax and scan viewer will let him scan. Question: is there a way to default win7 fax and scan to save a scan with a name similar to above that would have the date incorporated? I now saves it as img01, img02. I am still running xp so i don't have the ability to check.

Fax And Scan Full Setup

Windows 7 fax and scan. I am still having trouble with windows fax and scan. When i had windows xp i used windows fax console as the fax software. I simply scanned the fax message into a word document and used the fax wizard to send off the fax. I wish to do a similar thing in windows 7 fax and scan but i always end up with attachments which i do not understand.

Is this attachment sequence the new thing - i am certainly not used to it? I am also unable to send any fax though the fax settings are correct. When i try to send a fax reference is made to a fax server. I have set up the program to be used with an external fax modem - a fax server should not be involved. The fax printer present in the printers folder in windows xp is missing in windows 7.
Do i need this ?

Scan Fax Application In Win 7 Doesn't Show Paper Size Option

I have a new hp with windows 7. I'm trying to scan in legal size docs. With my printer/scan/fax machine. The scan fax application in windows 7 doesn't show a paper size option for legal size paper. I could perform this operation on my old xp computer. Did microsoft forget to add legal size parameters in this application?

Could Custom Program Files Location Be Specified Before Install ?

Could a custom "program files" location be specified before windows vista is install on a computer?

I'm a fan of running the windows operating system on low capacity high speed disks and off loading my programs and documents/data to other disks. This is a simple enough operation for the documents/data but there aren't a lot of options for the program files.

A popular windows "tweak" idea that gets close to what i want to do (if it actually worked) is tweaking the default program files location stored in registry so, as new programs are installed the default location given reflects the custom location specified.

The problem with this is the program file location values in registry do more then provide a default location for installing software. The programs that vista installs on the "c drive" during a normal installation need these keys unchanged if they're to be referred to correctly later on. So like many keys in the windows registry, they provide an answer to multiple versions of an inquiry and changing the answer tends to have further reaching effects then one might think.

So, as for solving this problem around separating programs from os, i see only two possible choices (neither of which i know how to pull off currently):

1. Make the change to the default program location before windows vista is installed (with a custom install disk or the like) so my custom program location is address from the get go, making every thing (windows programs included) install accordingly and insuring that there aren't multiple program locations to be confused over.

2. Some how, do some crafty registry work that would operate as follows: if a program asks for a default location to install a program, provide the custom location i specified, leaving the "programfilespath" and "programfilesdir" keys unaffected for the sake of the windows programs that by default exist on the c drive.

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.

However, if i right click on the mouse and choose open, i can access the drive/folder with no problem. How do i correct this back to ordinary clicking on the drive/folder?

Error - This File Does Not Have A Program Associated With It

Error box: "this file does not have a program associated with it for performing this action. Create an association in the set associations control panel". I am using desktop pc: hp windows vista hompe premium 32 bit. (Service pack 2) and my pc is updated with all the latest updates. My problem: when some one email me an internet link and i try to open the link in my internet mail, then this "set associations control panel" box appears on my screen.

I have tried everything to 'set this association' but i am unable to do it, because when i= click on start= open default programs= set your default program. I do not see my internet explorer in the default program box. Also, when i click on "default programs"= and open : " set program access and computer defaults"= my setting is checked on: "custom"= at: 'choose a default browser' the "use my current web browser" is checked. = 'choose a default email program' the "use my current email" is checked.

When i experienced this problem, i had windows explorer 7 on my vista (32 bit) and i downloaded internet explorer 8 and i thought that it would solve the problem. But it didn't. I still cannot open any internet website links that i receive in my email letters. (I do  not have any problems to open my internet explorer when i click on  my internet explorer link or to surf the web) my problem is only when someone send me email with a link to a webpage, on the internet (any webpage) then i cannot open the link from my windows mailbox.

Also when i open software like powerdirector 7 and when i want to create a 'menu' and i want to click on the "download more menu templates from directorzone" that will link me to the website on the internet the same "this file does not have a program associated with it for performing this action.

Create an association in the set associations control panel" but again, internet explorer 7 (and now i downloaded ie 8) does not appear in my default program box that enables me to set an association. What can i do? Will the program "hijack this" help me in some way, to give you more information about this problem?(I do have firefox on my computer as well).

Two Separate Program File Folders

When i transfered my files from my old windows xp pc to my new windows 7 pc using windows file transfer it created two distinct "program files" folders. One just says program files and the other is program files (x86). This is causing me lots of problems in that there are xp and windows 7 versions of the same programs and i keep getting all sorts of error messages. What is the best way to resolve this problem as i am reluctant to "uninstall" various programs using the control panel as only one version shows up in the uninstall process and i do not know which one it is referring to.

Associating Game With Program File

When trying to launch ms flight simulator x standard (with both sp1 & sp2 installed) from the games explorer in vista ultimate (32 bit) i receive an error message to set a program association in set associations from control panel. As a matter of fact all the games in my game explorer display this message.

I know how to set associations, i just don't know which file extensions (or files) to associate with which programs. I associated the extensions ". Flt" and ". Fssave" with program microsoft flight simulator(followed by the little 'r' trademark symbol). I found that in program files->microsoft games->ms flight simulator it is the flight simulator.exe. Yet i still get the error message. Shouldn't it have associated itself when i installed the program from the disc i purchased?

I have also used the disc to do a "repair installation", did not improve the situation.

Choosing A Program To Open A File

I was opening a file and right clicked to open the file, it was a picture file, and used the, "open with. " Command. I selected a program and left the check box below to have that program be the selected program for this kind of file, and all of my files from documents and other non-picture files changed to the particular program icon. All of the taskbar's pinned files/programs like control panel and the file library were all changed to be open by this particular program. It was the windows photo viewer.

I had to restore my computer in order to get it back to using the files in their normal programs. Even my files and programs on the start menu changed. I attempted to change one program back to its original state and left the box checked again, it then changed all my files and programs to this other program. How can i correct this problem so when i have a file i want to use with a certain program i can make that particular program the default but without changing all my other files and programs?

Error - File Or Folder Open Or In Use By Another Program

I am using windows 7 64-bit on an asus laptop, and recently ran into a strange problem. I have a shared hard drive on a desktop pc that stores all of my working files. I often work from the laptop across my wireless network, working on files stored on my desktop hard drive. The desktop is running win xp professional.

When i try and move a folder on the desktop hard drive using the laptop running win 7 i am getting the error"file or folder open or in use by another program, please close the program and try again"
The files are not open on the desktop or elsewhere on the laptop either, but nothing i do seems to unlock these files so they can be managed remotely from the laptop across the wireless network.

I found one forum post that said something about having to unlock the permissions for the file in windows 7? Is this the problem? And if so, how would one go about doing that? I have checked the permissions of the folders themselves, and they are set to full read write access for everyone, so i don't know what i could possibly change. This is a very annoying glitch, having to go to my desktop every time i need to move or delete a file from my shared hard drive!

Also i have had no problems in the past w/ my previous two laptops managing files across my network on this particular desktop drive. Those were running win xp home and media center edition.

Always Use The Selected Program To Open This Kind Of File

In my open with window the "always use the selected program to open this kind of file" tick box is greyed out. I have a couple of programs on my w7 (64-bit) pc that will not automatically open when i click on a file associated with them. For example, i have a file which was created in onenote 2003.

When i want to open this file, i double click it and instead of onenote 2003 just loading and opening the file, the open with window comes up asking me to choose a program to run this file. I manually choose onenote 2003 and then try to tick the box opposite "always use the selected program to open this kind of file". But this is greyed out for some reason. And so every time i want to look at that file in onenote 2003 i have to go though this same manual process to select that program to view it.

Every Icon On Desktop Looks Like Word File / Program

I'm working with windows 7, on a new hp laptop. Windows booted up normally, but every icon on the desktop looks like a word file, and every program in the startup menu looks like a word file. Any time that i try to open a program, word opens, as well as a window that says to pick windows (default), os dos, or other encoder to find which one works to be able to read the message in the window, but none of them work. None of the programs are accessible, and word is trying to open every program. What do i do? I'm so confused. I've never seen this before, and i'm pretty familiar with computers.

Can't Open Downloads Folder, File Does Not Have A Program Associated With It

"this file does not have a program associated with it for performing this action. Please install a program or, if one is already installed, create an association in the default programs control panel". As far as i can tell, all my other folders open up fine. Last thing i did was trying to download some software that would gradually turn my volume down so that i could fall asleep to it. It didn't work (older software, seemed like it wasn't compatible with windows 7) so i deleted the application and the installer which were located in my downloads folder.

Fax Sending Problem

I have been trying to send a fax for a long time now and it constantly says that the call had not been answered. I have looked over everything i could find on the internet and it does not seem that i am doing anything wrong. I have uninstalled / reinstalled windows fax and scan a couple of times but it seems to do no good. I still get the same message. One thing i noticed when reading the forums is that if i were to uninstall windows fax and scan and i were to reinstall it again , trying to send a fax for the first time, the fax wizard would pop up and lead me through the setup of the fax.

This wizard never comes up after the very first time that i set it up. I dont think i did anything wrong during the fax setup. The only thing that i entered was my area code. When i try to send a fax i hear the dialing tone and the fax tone for quite some time but in the end i get the same problem that i have described.

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?

Choose The Program You Want To Open This File Dialog Issue

As i described, the dialog appears after each restart. It occurs after i have entered my log-in credentials and proceeded to windows. It seems to be fairly late in the boot process as things like chat programs and widgets are fully loaded by the time the dialog appears.

The dialog appears to be the standard "open with" dialog in windows 7.

Specifically the dialog reads:

Choose the program you want to open this file:
 
File: mathew [this is my user id and there is no extension shown)

If i open the file in something like notepad, then the below information is presented (the #'s are real numbers, but these looked like mac addresses so i left them out).
