  1. Have you installed the newest driver for your audio card ? Andy
  2. I am doing some file cleanup. I am trying to find out when a program was run last. For example, I have Microsoft Visual C 2010 x86 Redistributable and would like to know if it is being used at all. If I don't need it and it's not being used by something else, I will delete it. I used appwiz.cpl and had it list by last day used, but many programs that have been recently used are not listed. The programs that windows does track are only looked at for the last 30 days. Can that be increased ? I could look to see if there are new entries in the program's folders, but that would be very time consuming. I am looking for some suggestions. Thanks, Andy
  3. I tried download and installing symbols locally but no luck. How do I have Windbg download all the symbols for me ? I tried srv*c:\Asm\Symbols*http://msdl.microsoft.com/download/symbols; from a command window. Thanks.
  4. It took around 4.5 seconds to find 2 identical search.bat files in different directories using s*.bat as the search pattern. What do I have to do to have it work like this ? search.bat s*.asm without the search pattern being hard coded into the batch file. I recall using %1. :: Search.bat Dave Benham, mousio, Magnum,skywalker, :: cls @echo off echo. echo Timer has started. echo. call :StartTimer :: :: Add your script functionality here :: @echo off setlocal disableDelayedExpansion set "searchRoot=." set "fileMask=s*.bat" set "prior=noMatch" for /f "tokens=1,2 delims=?" %%A in ( '(for /r "%searchRoot%" %%F in ("%fileMask%"^) do @echo %%~zF:%%~nxF?%%~fF^)^|sort' ) do ( set "current=%%A" setlocal enableDelayedExpansion if !prior! equ !current! ( if defined priorFile ( echo( echo !priorFile! ) endlocal echo %%B set "priorFile=" ) else ( endlocal set "prior=%%A" set "priorFile=%%B" ) ) call :StopTimer call :DisplayTimerResult pause goto :EOF :StartTimer :: Store start time set StartTIME=%TIME% for /f "usebackq tokens=1-4 delims=:., " %%f in (`echo %StartTIME: =0%`) do set /a Start100S=1%%f*360000+1%%g*6000+1%%h*100+1%%i-36610100 goto :EOF :StopTimer :: Get the end time set StopTIME=%TIME% for /f "usebackq tokens=1-4 delims=:., " %%f in (`echo %StopTIME: =0%`) do set /a Stop100S=1%%f*360000+1%%g*6000+1%%h*100+1%%i-36610100 :: Test midnight rollover.

  5. Nice coding. How would I get it to exit instead of continue ? Thanks.
  6. C++, Delphi, VB/VBS, CMD/batch, etc.) I thought etc. might cover my question. :-) What I did was move the unallocated space in from of the drive that I wanted it to merge with. Then I expanded that drive into the unallocated space.
  7. I am using Easeus and I want to merge 25 Gb of unallocated space with the D: partition. I searched and could not find out how. C: is the primary partition. I already tried merging D: with F: ( 25 Gb) but that did not work. What is the trick ? Thanks, Andy
  8. I can't find out why the power options aren't working. Monitor and hard drive should be shut down after 15 minutes, but they aren't So far I have 1. Applied a windows patch 2. I have the newest video drivers Anything else I can check ? Andy
  9. Here are the results. results.txt Not sure what it means. Andy
  10. When trying to run dexplore.exe it tells me it cannot find one of more components. How do I find out which components it can't find ? thanks
  11. 1 - Makes NO sense! What do you MEAN? An XP-SP3 ISO or the SP3-PACKAGE?2 - aclntusr.exe= Altiris Client Management Suite / kusrinit.exe=The Kace KBOX Agent... Did you install a WAREZ??? It will make sense when I get it fixed. I don't think whether an iso or M.S.s own SP is germaine. As a programmer I work hard at making sure my programs work correctly which includes checking for conditions before the program starts.
  12. "Should" is the operative word. I have installed Serv packs a number of times but never had this much trouble.
  13. I am sorry for the tone of my message. It is my daughter's computer. Andy
  14. I wanted a i386 directory, so I dled sp3 and installed it and got that i386 dir. Unfortunately, there were a lot of problems after rebooting. 73 instances of explorer opened, and about 4 errors with other things. Of course, the ever useless event viewer was empty of any errors. I stopped aclntusr.exe and kusrinit.exe and miraculously when I login, XP immediately tells me it is saving my settings and it shuts down. I tried BartPE, but it doesn't let you run services to get programs restarted. Andy
  15. I was running Windbg when windows went to hiberation. I could not get out of it until I unplugged the battery and plugged in the line cord. This may be unrelated but I have a bunch of these in the Event Viewer. I had a CD in the drive for a while, and I just took it out. Event Type: Error Event Source: Cdrom Event Category: None Event ID: 11 Date: 12/28/2012 Time: 1:53:41 PM User: N/A Computer: BSEKENNEDYCHP Description: The driver detected a controller error on \Device\CdRom0.

  19. I have plenty of patience. I like to make things better. Win 8 isn't being forced on anyone. You didn't go buy it did you ? :-) Later gator, Andy
  20. Do you consider XP to be an old O.S. ? I will give you more details. When you use Start /Run you can enter cmd.exe and get a simulated DOS environment. I run some 16 bit programs from there. The name of one of the programs is tasm.exe. That is a program that assembles 16 bit code. When I run that program it takes 3 seconds to complete it's task. It should be taking less than .5 seconds. If there is any other info you need, please let me know. Andy
  21. I use some 16 bit program from cmd, but they run very slow. Is there a way to speed that up ? They are small programs that use little resources. Thanks, Andy
  22. I will stick with XP. It is an excellent product. There is nothing that I need in later versions of Windows. I use Windows 7 on occasion on another computer and like that it handles badly written programs better with more information given. There is a tendency for choices to be taken away from users who move to a newer O.'S. I program in assembly and can still run 16 bit programs just fine in addition to the 32 bit ones I write. I follow safe computing practices and have never gotten a virus or trojan. Both Windows 7 and Vista have a least one security flaw. This flaw has been in existence since XP came out. Have a great day, Andy
