2002  Main Area and Open Discussion / General Software Discussion / Re: How to force "Register DLL"? on: January 26, 2012, 09:09:41 PM
Perhaps try changing the Owner of the install file before running it elevated?
That's not going to change anything, just running it elevated forcibly should solve it. This issue also exists for installers on Server 2008, that are not UAC/Vista+ aware, or recognized by the OS as being an installer. The last situation is most likely the case here.

I'm sure I've had trouble previously running programs, (whether elevated or not), until I specifically 'owned' the executable.  But then again, my memory may be alcohol distorted smiley

But not being able to repair my ageing 32-bits Vista Home Premium, ....

Just going back to the OP, why can't you do a Repair Install Curt?

I'd have to go with yes.

Back OT, like I said, it's just one of a number of phrases/questions/etc that just stuck in my head over the last 30-40 years.  Another good source is taglines, god knows having spent a considerable number of hours on Usenet over the years there's tons floating around in my head  Grin

For anything that can be >20 characters I use easily remembered sentences complete with punctuation/capitalisation/etc.

eg. Not one I use but a question I was asked that has stuck in my head for >30 years smiley

Passphrase: Does cam low profile alter valve train component acceleration?

For anything <20 characters, I use Password Card as mentioned here, kudos to joby_toss btw.
I have a pair of these laminated back to back, after using a password, (selected off them), a few times, I no longer need the card to look it up but it is there if I need it.

If I need something ridiculously complex, (ie. hard to remember), I'll take something easy to remember and ROT13 or ROT47 it, (or ROTxx).

Could also be a 32 vs 64 bit issue.

Shouldn't be, Curt's trying to install on a 32bit system - 64bit programs normally won't install, (well, they didn't want to when I was running 32bit smiley ).

Perhaps try changing the Owner of the install file before running it elevated?

Also one should realise too that you can view the profile Google has built up on you and request that they no longer use targeted ads.

Silly question, but how do you view it ?

Just interested, I doubt I'll have one since I only use GMail via POP3/IMAP, any Google Analytics scripts are blocked and cookies are anonymised.

Thanks. I am not sure on how to restart Explorer.exe .....

Run Task Manager, click the Processes tab, right-click the explorer.exe task and select End Process and hit OK.
Select File->New Task (Run...).
Type in explorer.exe and hit OK.

I can wait some more time for Microsoft to solve it (in Win7, not Win8 !).

The disappearing Tray icons "feature" has been there an awful long time, (since XP).....how long do you want to wait?

Zoiks! That's a hell of a round. But I'd rather the hollow-point, as they're designed to frag and stop in the first target. It's safer for the Innocent bystanders that way. Chances are you'll have to asses the field of fire in a split second, so it's best not to take chances with overkill.

Perhaps I should have pointed out that the second, (12g - causes very large recoil and makes a really big mess of things Grin ), doesn't go in the first, (1851 Navy Colt - lot of fun, bit slow to reload).

2015  Main Area and Open Discussion / General Software Discussion / Waterfox has now been accepted as a Mozilla project on: January 22, 2012, 07:28:21 PM
Waterfox is a x64 build of Firefox, I've been using it for a while after Pale Moon x64 was giving me some strange problems.  Pale Moon directory structure was also different to Firefox's, this was good for those times when programs expected to just dump things onto Firefox, (toolbars, bookmarks, etc), because they couldn't find the directories, (thus assumed no browser), but not so good when you were trying to get some plugin to work.

So far I haven't found any problems with using Waterfox over Firefox.

Posted by: MrAlex

Waterfox has now been accepted as a project by Mozilla and has been placed on their website! Waterfox 9.0.1 has also been released, but at the moment is only available through the internal updating program available in Waterfox 9.0. This is to try and iron out any issues for the release of Waterfox.

This is probably the same sort of bug as the disappearing tray icons.

That can be fixed, (albeit temporarily), by restarting explorer.exe - have tried that?
2018  Main Area and Open Discussion / Living Room / Re: Windows XP system clock losing (lots) of time. on: January 21, 2012, 06:13:24 AM
I did some checking, and it looks like it may be driver related. Especially the chipset.

Guess what?  You hit it in one, after an image restore I removed the nVidia driver and then reinstalled the latest WHQL XP drivers I could find, (which wasn't from nVidia' site).  No more clock problems since.

Definitely no more updating for this machine now, service disabled.

Thanks for the clue worstje  Thmbsup

I think you only need to look at the prices for Windows 7 on the site to realise it's a bit dodgy since at those prices they're probably the usual MSDN keys palmed off with a copied DVD.
2020  DonationCoder.com Software / Post New Requests Here / Re: [REQ] Disable sleep/hibernation one time to drain battery on: January 19, 2012, 11:32:41 PM
Updated - now outputs to a window.

Run it once:
[attach=1]

Run it again:
[attach=2]

It will say Fail instead of Done if the powercfg.exe command failed, (and give the error), or the RunOnce registry entry couldn't be (re)set.

Unfortunately, it's not easy to determine how an AutoIt executable was launched, (CLI or Windows), so the output will always be to a window even if launched from the CLI.

I think that about covers it unless there's a problem - I might look at enabling/disabling Hibernate/Sleep from within the script, (to reduce reliance on powercfg.exe), but don't count on it.

Still, what troubles me is why this defect would be revealed by a chkdsk@boottime.  

Because at boot time there are files that aren't locked by the operating system and are therefore accessible for testing.  That's why it's always better to do an offline test and the main reason I always have some form of PE to boot from.
