Hi there,

I have a problem with 7-zip program on my personal computer, that runs Windows 7 Professional 64-bit.
If I try to create a new zip file or to extract from a zip file by using the context menu (anywhere on the computer), I get the following error: "The requested operation requires elevation. C:\Program Files\7-Zip\7zG.exe"

I tried both beta and regular version, and the same problem occurs. I have the same program installed at work, on Windows 7 Enterprise 64 bit, and and the same operations work without a problem.

I noticed that if I kill the Windows Explorer process and then I start it again, the operations work.

Do you have any ideas as to why this is happening?


Living Room / Ergonomic mouse and keyboard
« on: April 29, 2010, 09:07 AM »
Hi there. I stay many hours in front of computers, both at work and at home. A few months ago I started to feel pain in my right wrist, so I moved the mouse in my left hand. My left wrist now hurts also, so I decided to buy an ergonomic mouse and keyboard.

So, my question is, do you use such devices? Could you make some recommandations?


Developer's Corner / Multithreading tutorials
« on: June 23, 2009, 01:47 AM »
Hello to everyone,

I want to develop some multithreading skills and I was wondering if you could recommend me some online tutorials (or books) with some theory and/or with examples in C/C++/MFC.

Thanks a lot!


I have some problems using Clipboard Help+Spell with Access. I want to copy/paste data between tables and/or forms. When I copy something it appears in the Quick Paste Menu (Ctrl+Alt+Q), but when I select from the list what I want to paste (by clicking on it, or by selecting the corresponding number) it does not appear in the Access form or table.

Did anybody have this problem? I am doing something wrong? I am using Office 2007 and I have no problems paste-ing in Word or Excel.

Thanks a lot,


Did ever happen to you to see that there is network traffic generated by your computer (in general something small and constant, for example 10 k) that is unusual and you have never seen before? You probably want to know what program/process/service generates that traffic and why it generates it. So, does anyone know a free program that displays the amount of traffic generated by each process?

I want to create a simple program in C/C++, as an exercise and for fun, that can say if an number entered by the user (a number between 0 and 250) can be a rugby score and to display all the possible combinations of points.

For those that do not know, in rugby you are awarded 5 points if you score a try, 2 points for a conversion (a conversion always follows a try) and 3 points for a goal kick (through a penalty kick or drop goal). So, for example, 5, 6, 7, 8 and 10 are valid scores, but 4 and 9 are not valid. Probably higher scores are all valid, so the most interesting part would be to display all possible combinations.

The algorithm I thought of using:
1) check if the score can be obtained only by tries or goal kicks (i.e. see if the number is divisible by 5 or 3).
    a) for 1 to n tries
          b) in each try, for 0 to n conversions
                  check how many goal kicks are necessary to obtain the score (if it is possible)

Do you think it is a good algorithm? Can it be done in any other way?

If I will manage to create this I will share the program + the source code, if anyone is interested, of course.  :)


Hi Mouser.

I have an idea that might be useful for a number of your program's users. I have seen that each one of them has a particular entry in Start Menu (e.g. ProcessTamer for Process Tamer), but I think it could be more useful to have all your programs grouped in a single folder in Start Menu (e.g. MouserSoftware\ProcessTamer). Sometimes I have to look after a certain program created by you in Start Menu (which is very large in my case) and it would be more easy to have all your programs in a single place, especially considering the fact that I use a large number of your applications.


P.S. Your programs are one of the best I have seen. Thank you for them and thank you for giving them freely. I really appreciate your hard work.

Hi. I am having this little bug on FARR and LaunchBar Commander (but not with Screenshot Captor) on both my home and work computers. When I start the application, a small pop-up window appears in the lower right side of the screen, containing some text regarding the license for the program (the programs are not licensed yet) and a link. The problem is that the text specifies: "Click the link above ...", but the link is underneath and it overlaps some of the text:

The obvious solution is to get a license (which I will do in the near future), but I thought you would like to know about this.

Site/Forum Features / The "Position:" (group) levels
« on: February 05, 2009, 07:55 AM »

I have seen that we all have a Position (also called Group in some posts) in our profile, that also appears when we post. Could someone explain in details all the levels that can be acquired (when someone gets a new level and why), starting from the lowest one to the highest one?


P.S. If it there is already such an explanation on the forum or in the help, I'm sorry.  :(  I wasn't able to find it.
