  • 1. WordPad problem
    I made some WordPad documents using Windows 98 and WordPad. Then I loaded them into another computer that uses Windows xp version 5.1. They appeared to load okay, but when I try to open them I get the message: Can not load Word for Windows 6.0 files. What's up with that? Do later versions of WordPad not recognise things done using earlier versions, or what?
  • 2. batch file changes (for Vista)
    Hi all, I had until now, and worked fine on WinXP And Win2k the following: - into my application directory, C:\Program Files\MyApp a second_app.exe which needs admin rights to run - into the same dir I have: MyTrace.bat which contains the following lines: second_app.exe > MyTrace.txt second_app.exe >> MyTrace.txt - when a user was into a very-specific trouble (meaning very seldom), he had to double-click the MyTrace.bat which would generate in the same dir the MyTrace.txt, which then should be sent somewhere. Now, this scenario doesn't work on Vista b/c: - if I double-click on the MyTrace.bat the creation of the MyTrace.txt fails as it's in Program Files and the console's ">" and ">>" will fail - if I right-click on the batch and say "Run as admin" the console will actually prompt to system32, so the second_app.exe won't be found to be run I know of course that I could change the .bat to: second_app.exe > %TEMP%\MyTrace.txt second_app.exe >> %TEMP%\MyTrace.txt and it would work, but I would like to find a method, so that the MyTrace.txt to be generated in the same dir where MyTrace.bat is. Is there a way to do that? (if for instance at the very beginning of the batch file I could somehow change the directory to the directory where this batch file is (don't know how to do that), and then the batch could be run with "Run as admin"). Thanks, Viv
  • 3. web link share with other users
    I need to add a web link either put into Favorites folder or bar tools and share with other users also. I can add into the web link into Favorites but have problem with shearing the web link with other users. How to configure it so other user log into their user account and they still can click on Favorite link on the system. Thanks.

Error Message: "Program too big to fit in memory"

I am running Windows XP at home and have Office XP installed.  The
problem is that I need to use equation editor and it is not displayed,
but I found a fix.  The problem is that when I try to run setup.exe
from the command prompt off the CD, I get the error message referenced
above.  I have checked and there seems to be enough memory.  Also, I
having seen references to an old virus that gives the same message
(green joker), but my virus scan doesn't find any viruses.  Any
suggestions of what I should do.  I really need equation editor.

Thanks

Ok, I'm not exactly sure what the problem was but it works now.  For the
record, I restarted the computer, hit F8, and set it to boot for the 'last
known good configuration' and it worked.  Thanks anyways,

4.'program too big to fit in memory' error

Hi all,

I can't seem to figure this out.  There's a game I have on CD that I
installed perfectly on this computer (Windows XP Home) perhaps two or three
weeks ago.  Now when I try to run the setup file (same CD) I get the error
message, "program too big to fit in memory" in a console window.  Then it
closes.  I checked out Google and the groups already but no-one ever gave an
actual answer as to what the problem might be.  My specs are as follows:

Windows XP Home (with Service Pack 1)
512 MB DDR RAM
Pentium 2.4 GHZ
80GB Hard Drive (13 gigs free)

I don't understand it.  The CD works fine on another XP machine, but this
one I get that error message.  I can't recall installing or doing anything
major to this PC since it worked last  Does anyone have ANY suggestions?
Thanks,

    Matt


5.MS-DOS error: Program too big to fit in memory

When I try to open practicaly ANY program, the black MS-
DOS window open and in a blink before its close I can 
see:Program too big to fit memory. No program will start. 
I havent changed ANY settings recently. I tryed to fix it 
by maxing the parameters in Properties of programs, and of 
cmd.exe. Nothings work.

I deinstalled Windows XP, reinstalled it, its the same. 
Its the first time this ever happen to me...

Anybody know on what MS-DOS actually rely on? If I format 
my computer, will it be fixed?
