  1. thanks ill try that when i get a chance. the goal is to get the sharp drivers from the xp cd and see if i can install the printer on win7 using the xp drivers
  2. hi, im looking for the printer drivers that come included with win xp - http://support.microsoft.com/kb/293381/en-us Sharp JX-9600Sharp JX-9600 PSi currently dont have windows xp install so cant grab them that way. i have tried following a guide to expand the files off a disc but its not working. it was telling me to expand the sysoc.in_ file in the folder i386 but all it does is produce a txt file. can someone point me to the correct file or upload the drivers here thanks.
  3. i would like to make a shortcut on my windows 8 tablet to be able to launch chrome in mobile mode as sometimes while im browsing with the full site it doesnt fit in the screen and is annoying while using in bed i know i can change the user string but what one should i choose? and can i set it up in a shortcut so i can open it when i want rather than it being default
  4. ok thanks i followed this use Mouse Keys to move the mouse pointer to setup mouse pointer and now it shows the mouse pointer and if i leave enabled it works fine
  5. how do i install a hid mouse device when i dont have a hid mouse device plugged in? so the program has a mouse pointer the only way i can get the mouse pointer is by having the mouse plugged in is there a way to fake it with the app so when turned on it recognizes it as a hid mouse device?
  6. ok so with a mouse plugged in it will move the mouse pointer around fine, when the mouse is removed the mouse pointer icon disappears. is there a way to have have a mouse pointer?
  7. thanks guys works a dream Edit: it appears the mouse pointer has disappeared now....
  8. it says im missing msvcr110.dll? yet its a new install that hasnt been played with
  9. with the android xtralogic remote desktop app you control the mouse pointer with the touch screen. is there a program that you can do this in win 8? something that can easily be turned on and off in taskbar
  10. after a bit of reading there appears to be 2 different types of apps metro apps and desktop apps. where do you find the desktop apps? whats the difference between them? eg twitter metro vs twitter deskop why are they called desktop apps and not just a "program" like normal desktop programs?
  11. thanks, yeah i knew xcopy could do that but its still alot of manual effort i could do it by hand quicker as each time i want to do it its something different so by the time i done it in cmd i could of already done it but after probably 6 hours of googling i have found out how to do it so anyone that actually wants to know how to here it is first you need total commander and then download the plugin copytree http://www.totalcmd.net/plugring/copytree.html then heres a snippet from the readme (comes with the file but a little hard to understand (although could be fro lack of sleep) an i will just edit the install instructions 1. Installation and configuration file to install it manually you should extract archive contents to any folder (i created a folder called plugin in the Total commander install Dir, then created a folder called CopyTree where i extracted the file), load Total commander and open Configuration - Plugins - Configure packer plugins, choose an extension for plugin It is recommended to use extension CopyTree (it will be displayed in the Pack dialog's list of packer plugins). and then specify path to plugin file.(where you extracted it before) Total Commander passes INI file name on plugin loading. If not (e.g. TC version earlier than 5.51) or if INI with plugin's name exists near the plugin, this file will be used as configuration file. File encoding may be ANSI or Unicode - you may change it manually using any text editor. Parameters in [Copy Tree] section: AskOptionsOnWin=1 Show choose tree level dialog before copying if Win key is down; AskOptionsAlways=0 Show choose tree level dialog before every copying; CopyDirTimeStamp=0 Copy timestamps of directories; DefaultCopyLevel=0 Allows to override folder levels to copy. If >0, specifies number of levels to copy (1 - first safe choice, 2 - first safe plus one level etc.), if <0 - number of levels from root folder to skip (-1 - full path with drive letter, -2 - full path w/o drive letter etc.). When choose levels dialog is shown, overrides initial choice. If this parameter is set, it disables mandatory displaying of choose levels dialog when you copy files from search results panel; Language Current language file name (just name w/o path and extension). 2. General features and usage to use select the files your after and press Alt+ F5, then select copytree and done (make sure your right window in TC is the location you want the Destination directory to be) the readme explains everything but just not as direct as this hope whoever wants this can get it working fine
  12. i do alot of copying single files to my usb stick and every time i copy it i have to type the 2 parent directory folders to the copy the file to is there a copy program that can copy the file with (2) amount of parent directories eg. Folder 1 - Folder 2 - - File 1 - - File 2 - Folder 3 - - File 3 - - File 4 if i want to copy all i just copy Folder 1 and use "send to" very easy if i only want to copy file 1 i need to create Folder 1 and then create folder 2 inside folder 1, i then copy file 1 into the created directories (now why dont i just copy all and then delete file 2? and folder 3) because theres normally alot more folders and files is there something that can do "send to" (or copy) with 2 leading folders?
  13. I am slightly confused with that, im not against having to reactivate, i was just wondering if i could do it without BSOD because of different hardware i will be upgrading motherboard cpu and ram and obviously the ssd i have read there are ways to do it but thought this community would be able to say the easiest way i did read windows backup could by installing windows 7 onto the fresh computer then recovering the backup onto that but havent been able to find too much about it its looking like a reformat, although not the best option for me at this time is still the best option, i may have to hold off on the upgrade for a few months or so until i can get it done properly
  14. i currently have my pc here and am planning to upgrade just about everything on it even converting my current hdd to an ssd can i use windows backup feature to back up the OS and then recover it to the ssd and it work on the PC after the upgrade? i know i should do a complete reformat but i really need to keep it going as is for now until i get the time to do a reformat. i have way too many settings, symlinks and programs that id need to change to get it back to how it is.
  15. im not after using it to share files just want to view the folder structure and see the files in the folder not open them if that makes sense. seems too hard just for that thought it could be something simple thanks
  16. i have my htpc running win7 and can access my shared folders via lan on my android phone with es explorer all i have to do is put in my ip address and user, pass etc and it works well. i noticed in its link on the phone it list it under smb:// how would i access it over the internet in the same program? i know i would have to forward some ports but its just not working i have forwarded 445 to the htpc ip address and put it in the program as (my dns server):445 but its not working? i can get it to access other things over the internet like sickbeard, utorrent, remote desktop etc and i know my ports are getting forwarded just dont know how to access my files any help?
  17. i dont even update my win 7 is there a need for updates? every time i done it on xp it slowed it down only time it was good was when i built an intergrated disc with all updates, but cbf doing that with win7
  18. im running win7 i have a folder on my computer with the files i want to backup, being "T:\my user files", the destination is the "V:\" drive if i moved or delete a file in T:\my user files and execute the backup to destination drive of V:\ it copies the moved file again but it still leaves it in its old location (in the backup) and if a file is deleted it doesnt delete it from the backup the /U switch is to only update files in that directory where i want to add new ones aswell and if the files moves it then wouldnt update it anyway.. XCOPY "T:\my user files" "V:\" /D /E /C /R /I /K /Y pause exit looks like i will have to use one of those other ones you suggested
  19. i use xcopy in a cmd file to backup some of my files heres an example XCOPY "T:\my user files" "V:\" /D /E /C /R /I /K /Y pause exit the problem is if i move/delete things in the main folder then i run my xcopy cmd file it recopies the files i have moved and doesnt delete the ones i have deleted is there a way i can set it to mirror or sync that folder?
  20. ok so i have a 1TB WD usb portable hard drive in ntfs format in win7 64bit and since using win7 i have had it plugged into my main pc as backups i have then put other stuff on it and using it to transfer between computers but every time i plug it into a different computer it wants to format it and it requires me to take ownership before im able to access it. then when i put it back into my computer i have to do it again! is there anyway i can set the usb drive so i dont need to set permissions every time i use it...? i dont even know how it got that way..... i have even set it up in an exact copy of my windows7 pc (fresh format and then a fresh format in a virtual pc) and it still requires to take ownership???
  21. much thanks richdenis i see 100+ ppl downloaded it but no one has thanked you for it hope it works i was going to try and decipher it into a reg key but you saved me the trouble worst thing with stuff like this is takes about half hr every time you want to test something on the install side as you have to wait for install to happen when did you run this file in the xml file or in a runonce? or it shouldnt matter?
  22. still having trouble applying the runonce i have put a file called setupcomplete.cmd in W7CD\source\$OEM$\$$\Setup\Scripts setup complete.cmd @echo off cd\ start /wait %systemroot%\Bman\RunOnceEx.cmd exit and calls my runonce file thats in %systemroot%\Bman\RunOnceEx.cmd but its not working when i try and run the runonce from inside the virtual machine once its all installed i get error access denied and after i turned uac of it works the user i created in autounattended file is an admin ok so more of an updated once it puts the file into the registry i looked at it and its pointing to C:\ rather than the cd how do i set the cd in runonce...? i currently use (from my xp run once ) SET CDROM=%~d0 Solved disabled UAC in my autounattended.xml and works fine now
  23. thanks yeah i should point mine to the other drive but if i use the disc to do my laptop its useless and id like to reformat them as i seem to install a heap of stuff that i then dont use again and slows it down just one thing where do i put the runonce file and what do i have to edit so windows runs it...?
  24. looking at everything my best choice is probably RT 7 and windows toolkit for my knowledge level basically looking at maybe removing a few minor things, installing hotfixes, and unattended, and then auto installing apps silently can i install these apps via runonce... or with switches or do i need to make them into an addon file.. im only looking to integrate what i think are needed apps like codecs, ccleaner, teracopy etc and then setup the others as a runonceex.cmd... if i can ? win7 seems alot harder than XP or is it just me... i also have win xp mode how do i integrate that into the disc as its an exe file and the integration of updates only lists msu files with RT se7en...? what virtual machine should i use to test my win7 64bit in...?
  25. hey im trying to do something that should be simple but having trouble and while researching im getting stuck both running win7 64 bit both on the same home group and workgroup both computers have the same username and password i have my htpc and would like to give main computer admin rights so i can move and delete files etc on the shared folders but i cant seem to set it up i can remote desktop in and do it but then i cant be used while im using it looking through all the stuff i have googled it keeps talking about group policies etc but when i go there i can only get the location of the htpc not the main pc
