Cannot Edit Or Change Video Metadata

I'm not sure why - whether this is a locked-out feature, bug, or local error - but i cannot edit any video metadata. Example: i want to change the name of the video (not the name of the file itself), or rate the video 4 stars, or enter a comment about the video describing what it is about for future reference, etc. Any ideas?

Do You Want This Program To Change Settings On Your Computer

Do you want this program to change settings on your computer? Yes. You must be an administrator to run this program for the first time. This is my problem when i try to run a game. I am the administrator on my computer. My computer game disc will not let me play because it says i am not the administrator so i cannot allow the program to change settings on my computer. I am the administrator on my computer. Geek squad said there is something wrong with the game program. So i exchanged it and it still wont work.

Icons Issue When Accidentally Change Default Program

I accidentally changed the default program used to open .zip files under one of my user accounts (in windows 7 home premium 64-bit). Based on another user account, i figured out that it should be set to windows explorer. Changing it back restored the functionality - so zip files are once again opening correctly. But the .zip files now appear as generic windows explorer icons rather than the previous compressed folder icon (looks like a folder with a zipper). Is there any way to restore the zip icon?

Can't Change Default Program For Image Files

I have just upgraded from the coreldraw x4 suite of graphics/image processing applications to version x5 on my windows 7 ultimate machine. The new version runs fine, so i uninstalled the x4 version. I then wanted to make photopaint the default program for editing a range of image file formats (i use picassa as my album and right clicking to select the program to edit the image is really great).

For some reason, however, photopaint (x5) doesn't appear in the list. When i 'browse' for it i can find the photopaint .exe file. However, after i select it and click 'open' (and the 'browse window closes) there is no change to the default program. The only correct file:program association i can see is for the native corel image format (. Cpt). What gives?

Edit Html In Ie8

I build a site with google sites, i am the owner of this site, the text, data, photo's. Are all uploaded. Now i'd like to edit the html but when i choose display source i get a non editable 'notepad like' screen. I tried to open the site by clicking the menu bar and choose edit/open with notepad. This way it opens notepad which i can edit but there are no line numbers, the html code seems editable but looks like there's no beginning and no and. Pasting code in this screen looks a bit of a lucky shot. I copied a bit code so you can see what i mean;

(C, 1);break}};h. Jot_removealllistenersforname=function(b){for(var c=0;c
My question is; how can i edit my html using notepad/ ie8 (i believe editing html in ie7 was possible using notepad)my os; windows vista build 6. 0, service pack 1 ie 8

Cannot Edit Web Page Source

I have a web site that i edit by hand coding in notepad. I view the .html file on my hard drive, click on view and select source. I can then edit my code and change my web pages, then upload via ftp. That was until today! Now the pages are un-editable. The code page now shows up in colours with numbers in the left margin, which didn't happen before. It is not possible to edit the page at all.

I suspect that this is something to do with the windows update that was downloaded today. I was able to establish that this was security update for jscrit 5-8 for windows vista (kb971961) what can i do to make the source code editable again? This is vital as it is the website of a charity that i manage.

Edit Command Is Not Recognized As An Internal Or External Command

Getting this message when using edit via command prompt - 'edit' is not recognized as an internal or external command, operable program or batch file. I've seen where edit.exe and/or edit.com should be installed in windows/system32. No "edit" files. So what can one use to edit files via the command prompt in windows 7?

Setting Live Mail Program As Default Program

I am trying to set windows 7 live mail program as a default program. It does not show up as an option on my "set default programs list". I know that i have it because i am using the program. Where else can it be? I asked this question earlier in the context of trying to attach smaller picture files to an email. I followed the written instructions in the help section and those of the person who replied to my earlier question(ramesh). They both said to select live mail from the default programs list-but as i said before it is not on the list. Do you have any other suggestions?

Can I Delete Program From Program-files (x86) Directory ?

Why is windows media player in the program files directory (i assume for 64 bit programs) and also in the program files (x86)? It runs ok from either. Can i delete it from (x86) and other duplicates as well? I also note that office 2007 seems to be in the (x86). Does that mean it is not a 64 bit program?

How To Move Program, Program(86) Data Folders ?

I'm going to install win 7 64-bit on a 64 gb ssd and i want my program files to be on my hdd or my d:/ drive. I've read a few articles that contradict each other - one that states to use a registry change, a microsoft article that states ms doesn't support such a registry change, and a suggestion that all one need do is to change the drive letter on the installation of the program.

I'd appreciate it if someone would help me understand the best way to change the location of my program files. I am also concerned about leaving my temp, tmp, and perf files on the ssd. Should those be moved? And if so, what might be a good way to do this?

Taskbar Change

Today i noticed that when i scroll over the icons on the taskbar i no longer get a small image of what would be displayed on the screen if i clicked on it. I only get a small grey rectangle that gives me the information in text form. For instance, when rolling over the internet explorer icon that was previously opened as the google page, instead of the image of the google page i get a small grey rectangle that says "google - windows internet explorer". Can i change this back to what it was before easily, or what caused this to happen?

I cannot change users. I have tried everything that is offered and nothing works. Is there a big secret? I am using vista home premier. I am not computer literate enough to go any farther than what is provided.

I have tried to share all the files but it requires a password and program will not let me create password.

Cannot Change Background

I have an hp pavilion and i recently put windows 7 on it my backgrounds were fine when i first installed it.

I search the internet for a good picture i want to use for my background. I right click it. Then set as desktop background. Then the window that asks the position, color, and has a preview on it pops up. I click set desktop background. The window stays there. (I'm sure its supposed to disappear), and the taskbar flashes then goes away without any change to my background.

Ive tried changing my theme background. When i choose to change the desktop background in my theme it shows that every picture i have is selected. I go through all the picture locations and deselect all of them. When i go back to a picture location that i have already deselected all of the pictures in it are selected again. ? I don't get it

Right now my background is stuck at a solid color and that is the only thing i seem to be able to change about it

I cant say for sure but i think this all started after i installed the last update. I dont want to mess things up by undoing important updates.

Com Ports Change Itself

I will try and keep this short. I was using the com 1 on my hp to key my radio. That computer died and i got a new one that has no com ports so i got a usb to serial adapter and it seemed to work but then on its own it will key the radio 3 or 4 times then switch com ports on me. I can reconfigure it and reboot and then it works (for a period of time) then does it again. Any ideas? 

Other devises are working fine on 2 other adapters but they have software that controls them where this one being used for push to talk on the radio (for digital communications) does not it is just relying on the voltage change from dtr dts and ground to key a small circuit that in turn keys the radio, when the voltage drops back to normal it unkeys the radio. Thanks for taking the time to read this, and feel free to email direct to email removed for privacy if you like.

Change User Name

When i very first set up my new pc (windows 7) and input some details, it asked for a name for the pc so i put clements in (this is my surname). Now i find when i go into my computer/c drive/users, there is a user entry for clements and i really want that to be trevor (my first name). I do have an initial login box of trevor when i power up the pc , but i want my user name under c drive to be trevor as well. Can i somehow change it or change the name of the computer to be the same?

Change 64 Version To 32

I purchased a window 7 home premium family pack upgrade. On the initial desktop i decided that i would upgrade to the 64 version. However i now find that two programs that i use, autocad 2006 and cs2 do not have 64 versions on the cds. I will therefore have to upgrade if i want to go down that path and since i am nearing retirement i do not want to go down that road. If i un-install the 64 version reformat and load the 32 version will that still count as one of my three upgrades?

Hence i would still be able to upgrade my wife's desktop and our laptop. The alternative is i believe to keep the 64 version and to load a virtual program and install my vista 32 version and run both autocad and cs2 in this virtual program. If this is possible how easily is it to switch between the 64 and 32 versions and will the 4gb ram i have be sufficient, or do i need more ram to run both versions at the same time? Finally if the virtual program is the way to go what virtual program should i download?

Install 32-bit Apps To Program-files Rather Than Program Files (x86)

On 64-bit win7, is it wrong to install 32-bit apps to (drive letter):program files rather than program files (x86)? If wrong should installer prevent this? If installer allows it, what app behavior is appropriate?

Background: winzip 14. 0 (a win7 compatible 32-bit app) won't run if installed to c:program files. If installed to any other alternate path or folder name it runs ok. By convention starting with vista, c:program files (x86) is for 32 bit apps and c:program files for 64-bit apps. But installers allow overriding the install path and folder name. e.g, maybe i want 32 bit apps in c:program files and 64 bit apps in c:program files (x64).

If c:program files is a restricted location for 32 bit apps, should not the installer and/or os enforce this, rather than allow installation then break the app? What is the correct practice for both users installing apps and developers porting apps to win7?

How To Change Monitor Assignments?

I did a clean install of windows 7 64bit. I have a 9800xt gpu. After i got everything installed and stable i added my tv to the second video port. What i want to do is have the tv as an extended desktop and run my video on it. I now have two problems. The first is that my monitor assignments got swapped - my pc monitor is no #1 and my tv is now #2. This creates alkl kinds of problems. When i boot bios is displayed on one screen and windows on another. Another problem is that running extended desktop my icons appear on the tv and my pc monitor gets the windows default background.

I want it the other way around. All i can do now is clone but this has it's problems. The last issue is that when i run media centre full screen my mouse pointer disappears. I've tried removing the drivers and reinstalling. No matter what i cannot change the monitor assignments. Does anyone know a way to do this?
