Can I Filter A Library By File Type?


I create some various types of content like newsletters, videos, website work, and i store all the files from each project together, sorted into folders by client and then project name. So you can see that while my pictures library may be a great way to organze my personal photos, i don't put any image files associated with a project into my pictures folder, right?

Well i don't really have personal pictures on this machine, so it would still be nice to just see all my picture files from all projects. I figured i might add my 'projects' folder to be one of the folders that gets aggregated into the pictures library. But when i do, everything from my projects shows up in the pictures library. How can i set the pictures 'virtual folder' to only show files of an image type, like only png, svg, gif, jpg, and stuff like that?

I seem to remember that libraries are based on "longhorn's" search folders, so how do i make it happen?

Vs Filter Wrong File Version

I recently upgraded to windows 7 home premium from vista for the improvements to media centre. In order to get it to play mkv files which i use heavily i have had to download a codec package. I have tried to use both k-lite and the shark's windows 7 i am running a 64-bit system so i add on the 64-bit versions to them otherwise the mkvs will not play.

However whenever i go into my main video folder i get vs filter wrong file version pop up. It consistently pops up 3 times before allowing me to play the file. I have uninstalled and reinstalled 7 several different ways and have done the same to the codec packs and i still get it popping up. It's driving me crazy it appears i'm the only one in the world having this problem. Any solutions out there?

Search Java File Type Contents

I am having problems searching my . Java files. I go to the folder the file it is in, type a keyword in the search box, like "system", and it shows there are no files that match my search. When i change the extension to .txt, it finds my files. I have checked the advanced options in index options and the java extension is listed there as checked to be indexed for searching contents and file attributes. I have also checked that my individual file properties are set to allow for indexing of file properties and contents. Is this just a bug or am i missing something? If anyone could help me with this let me know.

Unable To Run .exe File Type Problem

Would like to delete dos mode, i operate a "windows 7 home premium" laptop. A few days ago i was attempting to download an updated version of'adobe flash player' which never seemed to complete. It seemed directly after being at the adobe site that any time i try to open an exe file (executable), the file is sent to wordpad in 'dos mode'. I have never came across this situation before. My son-in-law came by last night and tried to run some kind of program off a usb stick, and he said, 'it would run'. After he left i was able to get on the internet, but still have the problem with exe type files.

Kb905866 Junk Email Filter - Error 80070643

Using ms vista. For the last several months, any update to the junk e-mail filter constantly fails. The "new updates are available" icon remains in my system tray until i manually hide the update. All other updates install normally on the automatic cycle. It's just the junk e-mail ones that fail. Since i don't use windows mail, is this anything to worry about?  I do use outlook mail, and i was wondering if it pulled from the same filter set?

Is there any way to either fix it where it will download properly -or- stop windows update from requiring it as each month's new version is released?

Cannot Burn A Cd From Library

I have windows 7 and when i try to burn audio from my library it starts to burner and then i get an error message saying that my burner is not connected or something to that effect. I have tried slowing down the burn speed but to no avail. I am using a sony cd-r disc and the music that i trying to burn is not protected. When i go into the fix mode it says that the disc is not recognized but that it has been fixed.

I have checked to see that i have the latest drivers and i have. I was actually able to burn the three audio selections that came with the computer. The only other music i currently have is a classical album that i bought and downloaded from amazon and, that is the one i can't burn to a cd.

Clear Type Text Option

When setting up clear type text, the application will not save settings. My words are extremely blurry when i have the text size set at 100% and can only view text with the size set at 115% or higher. Changing the resolution only makes it worse. (I have computer set to recommended resolution status. )  Any idea on how i can get clear type to save my preferred settings?  Actually, clear type worked during initial set up but after recent windows updates clear type hasn't worked properly.

Error With A Call To A C++ Library

I am having trouble identifying the 'program' at boot (after bios boot is ok) that makes an error with a call to a c+ library. Restore was not enough to fix. Any ideas? Is there a way to go through windows 7 startup step-by-step to see when/how the failure occurs? I did a restore but that was not effective. I may have a system image but i am reluctant to go that far back.

2) regarding the system image. Is that able to be incrementally backed up? The first one took about 18 hours.

- There are no obvious symptoms after login but i would like to identify the cause of the error and fix. - New computer running 64 bit win 7. - Issue started after transferring programs from older vista 32 bit computer.

Media Player 12 Library Help

I am not able to delete any of the sample music that came pre installed on windows 7. I deleted the files from the my music folder/my videos but i cant delete them from windows media player 12 or windows media center. I would like to know how to do this. When i hit delete on them nothing happens same thing if i drag them to the trash. That's not close to the big problem though. I am not able to add any music to the library without it all getting deleted once i close wmp 12. How can i get around this?

It is a brand new computer i just bought it. It came installed with windows 7 home premium 64 bit. It has no virus or anything like that wrong with it.microsoft sure did mess up with wmp 12, wmp 11 was great but they font have it for windows 7 that im aware of. I also tried to re-download wmp 12 but i couldn't find the link to download it. They kept trying to make me download a plug in for it instead of the player itself. Since there's such little problems with this operating system like this im already regretting not going with a mac.

Visual C++ Runtime Library

I have just upgraded my toshiba satellite l300 laptop from vista to windows 7, everything went fine with the upgrade except for when the computer is starting up. The whole boot process is fine until it comes to go to the sign in screen i get this message:

"Microsoft visual c+ runtime library
This application has requested the runtime to terminate it in an unusual way
Please contact the applications support team for more information. "

To overcome the problem and be able to sign in i have to keep hitting the esc key over and over again until the sign in screen does eventually appear. When i sign in everything appears to work ok but i only upgraded the system yesterday and am worried that this will eventually become a bigger problem than it is right now.

Problem With Library Files

Win7 is driving me crazy. The new "library" feature sounds like a good idea, but it is not working for me. I have taken a number of pictures from my hard drive, and burned them to cds, deleting them from my hard drive. However, these pictures continue to be listed in the library even though they no longer exist on the computer. When i click on these "pictures" in the library list in media player, nothing happens, and the thumbnails are generic logos, not a thumbnail of the actual picture. However, win7 will not allow me to delete these not-existent pictures from the library list. Any ideas?

Program Cannot Be Run Because Of The Internet Connection Type

"program cannot be run because of the internet connection type" or "connect to the internet or contact your network administrator" i am having this issue with internet explorer whereby there must be a problem with the connection type settings because everytime i attempt to download either an application such as java or another search engine such as google chrome and even anti-virus such as symantec.

I am allowed to download the program but when i go to run the program i get different error messages for each application but all saying the same thing e.g. There is a problem with the internet connectivity-and this blocks the applications from running-another thing that happens is that when i get to an internet "hot-spot" where the browser is supposed to redirect to the login page of that network my internet explorer is not doing that.

Instead, it brings me to my home page and does not allow the network access page to be displayed. It also happens with skype, i downloaded it but when i went to run it, it sates: "please connect to the internet" when i am actually online on other tabs. Your help would be really appreciated.

Ps: i have tried reseting the setting for internet explorer from the advanced tab on the "internet options" window. I have also contacted my school's it center and they say that their connection is not limited in anyway (it also happens at home where i administer my network). I wanted to uninstall ie but could not find it on the "remove programs" list. Again, i have internet access but i am just not allowed to run applications and sometimes videos.

Microsoft Visual C++ Runtime Library

I just recently installed roller coaster tycoon 3 platinum! Edition in my window's vista computer. This game has always worked on my other computers, but right after installation i tried to start the program and this popped up:

Microsoft visual c+ runtime library
Runtime error!

Program: . Filesatarirollercoaster tycoon 3 platinumrct3plus.exe

Abnormal program termination

I looked at a lot of the other solutions for similar issues on these forums but none really seemed to apply. This computer was built for gaming, and plays games such as command and conquer and world of warcraft with no issues. I did, however, try to uninstall the microsoft visual c+, but there were two of them in the computer, and a third one called microsoft visual c+ updates. I uninstalled the two, but left the updates one. I reinstalled the program and restarted my computer. Same issue.

Dvds Not Showing Up In Dvd Library

I just got my notebook back from hp and they decided it would be a good idea to format the hard drive. Luckily, i had my dvd's backed up on my external hard drive so i didn't have to re-rip them. Anyway, before, i was running windows 7 ultimate 64-bit and when i told it what folder my dvd's were in, it found them and automatically added them to the library - i don't recall having to to do anything special.

Now, i've reinstalled windows 7 ultimate 64, so my os hasn't changed, but when i re-added the folders and tried to view them in the library (by clicking on movies), i get a message that says :there are no items in this library yet - windows media center is searching for media files in the background. To add more movies, you can go to tasks > settings > media libraries.

It does detect 2 home videos that i have in mpeg format, but the other ones that i kept in the normal format with video_ts folders within are not detected. Is there something i need to change so that wmc will recognize my movie collection again? I can get the movies to load and play using the "my movies" plug-in for wmc, but i'd much prefer to use the native movie library in wmc.
