  • 1. Updates fail to install
    I am running x64 with Office 2003 and in the latest batch of updates, I have received 2 whcih 'fail to install', but keep popping up as updates ready to install. They are; KB907417 Office 2003 update KB905648 Junk mail update for Outlook 2003 Any ideas on how to fix, or how I can delete these and force a new dowload (in case files are corrupted), Thanks Ron
  • 2. I May Have Been Had on an XP x64 License
    After the OEM XP x64 disk I had originally purchased from Directron was damaged during a reinstall (due to my own carelessness), I needed to purchase a new license. I found an "OEM" disk listed at 9software.com in Hampton, VA for $119.00. I received the disk today, but the disk is labeled: "Microsoft Windows XP Professional x64 Edition (Volume License Product Key Required). "May 2005 Systems "Windows Client: Business. "All use subject to volume license agreement. Do not make illegal copies of this disk. Not for Retail or OEM Distribution. Not for Resale." So, it looks like I've been had. I don't want an illegal copy of x64 on my system. Should I report this 9software.com to Microsoft? If so, anyone know the address?
  • 3. Adding network places
    Does anyone know how I can add a secured network place? I can add network places that start http but not https. My non-XP 64 machines have no problem adding the network place I'm trying to get to. Any help appreciated. -- Ray
  • 4. USB harddisk clogs
    I have a Toshiba 40GB 4200rpm harddisk connected externally via USB 2.0. Sometimes when writing a medium-sized file to it (say, 150MB) the write happened at too high a speed. That sounds promising, but it isn't :) Usually the write is a copy from my internal harddisk to the USB harddisk. The internal harddisk is obviously a magnitude faster, and it seems to me the write happens at the speed of the internal harddisk. Between 50 and 70 MB per second. The problem is that the OS reports the write as being done, but the USB disk is still physically writing out the file. I think what happens is that some kind of (very large) write cache is being filled up and eventually flushed as it's no longer being appended to. On it's own, this is not that big a problem. The problem with this "cache" is that so long as this "cache" is being flushed after the file copy has been completed, every and all access to the USB disk is being blocked (postponed to when the "cache flush" is complete, to be exact). Now, I know harddisks can have an OS-level write cache in Windows, but I also know that for USB Mass Storage devices, this cache is disabled by default. I also know that I didn't touch that setting (witnessed by the fact that the drive's policy is set to "Optimize for quick removal", so no OS-level write cache, iinm). Any thoughts on this? -- Thanks, Martijn Saly
  • 5. MDAC and XP x64
    I was looking at the latest MDAC downloads and none that I can find specifically state they are for XP x64. I'm curious if it's supported at this time. I have a proprietary system that uses MSSQL 2000 that I'm having problems connecting to. In case it matters, I'm using an AMD x2 3800+ 64 bit proc. Thanks in advance.

I recently upgraded to XP x64.  I'm running on Shuttle Box and generally, my 
upgrade has painless.  All of the apps I have tried worked fine but few 
parallel port drivers were discarded during the install process. 

The nVidia firewall is enabled (shame on me!!!) but everything other than 
ZIP downloads seem to be working just fine.  Firefox runs better than on 32 
bit versions of XP.

However, ZIP archives seem to be corrupted whenever I download them.  

Has anyone else experienced ZIP file problems?  Any fixes?  Sure, I promise 
to turn off the nVidia firewall.

Thanks,
Wayne

Well, you already know what the problem is. ;) I'm sure uninstalling the 
firewall will fix it. Those of us not running that [censored] product aren't 
having problems.

May be related, may not.  Similar problem on my A8N-SLI.  Was getting a few 
other errors, registry hive corrupt, system has recovered from a serious 
error, etc.  Then one day, my box failed to even boot to the BIOS screen. 
Different beep codes or none at all, totally random.  Got a RMA number 
({*filter*}Power), returned the box.  Got it back a few days ago, everything 
works correctly now including RAID.  Don't know exactly what they did, but I 
know the motherboard, memory and video card are all new.  Seems the drives 
and case/power supply are the only original items left.  No more zip corrupt 
problems either.

Might add {*filter*}Power made the RMA process painless.  A little hard to get 
through on the phone, but once that happened, the rest of the process was 
painless.  The tech did NOT read from a script, asked a few questions, 
suggested a few fixes (reseating cards, memory etc.) .  Told him I had 
alredy done that and then he said here is your RMA number.  Shade less than 
3 weeks turn around to my APO address which I consider outstanding.

I wiped the hard drives, reraided, installed 32 and x64 in dual boot and 
everything works.  Now if Canon will just get off their butts and publish 
some x64 drivers, I can let the 32 bit install fade away.

Bottom line, may be hardware related, more than likely, memory or video 
card.

did you by chance update the BIOS before updating the chipset drivers?
ASUS now has some severe warnings about corrupting the file system on
their web site. Also, FWIW, my A8N-SLI Deluxe started committing
suicide with BIOS 1006. It's now replaced and happily running BIOS
1013 and the newest chipset drivers, etc.

t was running the 1008 BIOS before and now also. Along with the 6.66 WHQL
drivers. I will be going to the 1011 BIOS soon. I believe that is the last
non-beta BIOS. As I try to stay away from beta BIOS's, I'll run whatever
the latest non-beta is. I'm away from the x64 box for the weekend, but when
I return Monday, I'll put it through some torture testing.

if the offending .zip was created with the latest verion of winzip they dont 
often work with what is built into x64. download winzip and you should be 
good to go. it worked for me when i came across a 'corrupted' .zip.

ake sure to apply the chipset updates first, and I would recommend using
the ones on ASUS site even though they may be older than the Nvidia site
drivers.

1.ZIP Archives damaged by nForce 4? / CAD tools that work

I turned off the nVidia "Firewall" (which worked OK in x32).  ZIP file 
download and my audio problems immediately disappeared.  Thanks again, 
everyone.

Over the weekend, I will be testing my CAD apps.  So far the programs that I 
have tried all work well and seem quite a bit "faster" than on the x32 
version of XP.  This seems especially true for simulation or place/route that 
work best with large amount of physical memory.

In case, there may be other hardware/embedded software people on the list , 
these programs seem to work:

Aldec Simulator Version 6.3
Rowley CrossWorks for ARM (GCC as well)
Analog Devices Visual DSP (haven't tried PCI based JTAG debugging, yet)
Xilinx ISE Version 7.1
Altera Quartus Version 5.0 SP1

If you require a JTAG conenction to your target, be aware that parallel port 
based devices like the MacGraigor Wiggler or early versions of the Altera 
Byte Blaster will not work.  USB based JTAG debuggers do seem to work.   

I will try my PCI based JTAG debugger but I doubt that it will work as there 
is no 64 bit driver for it.

I hope this info helps someone but your mileage may vary....

2.Recoving 7 Zip Archive - Cannot open file 'xampp.7z' as archive

Cannot open file 'xampp.7z' as archive error.

Hey all, i recently created a backup of all my websites, databases and
many projects, using a backup tool: cobian backup 9.
This created three files for the folder i was backing up (my xampp
directroy) 
These were three 7-zip files split into 700mb, 001, 002, and 003.

I copyed these to an external HDD, re-formatted my Main HDD in my
machine, re-insatlled windows and copyed them back over.

I managed to extract these split up files from 001, which should give
me the directory i backed up.. but it didnt it game me another 7-zip
archive, this time an overall of the folder.. so it must have compressed
a compressed file.. THing is i cant read/extract it!

Now i cant open this archive with anything.. and its really important i
get this data back..

I have tryed WinRar, 7-Zip, The 'Tools > Decompresser' in Cobian..

And im really starting to freak out, because i CANNOT lose this data..

What can i do to get my data back?

5.How to rescue a damaged RAR archive file?

Years ago, when win98 and floppy disks were the "IN" thing, I saved my
collection of fun softwares on floppy disks.

First I archived them using RAR, and then split the big file into
1.4MB sized smaller files.

Just yesterday I found the stack of floppies, all together 23 of them.

Of the 23 disks, 21 of them can be successfully read. The other two
disks, dead. Couldn't be read.

That means I am left with 21 parts of a 23-part rar archive.

Is it possible to extract as much of those precious little programs as
possible, from the remaining 21 parts of the archive?

How to do that, may I know?

Please help.

Thank you all !!!!
