Windows 7 is an operating system from Microsoft. Features include multi-touch support, a redesigned Windows Shell with a new taskbar, referred to as the Superbar, a home networking system called HomeGroup, and performance improvements.

We have three people who are getting the error message IMSLib not found. Acrobat services will not work.


All on Adobe Standard 2017.


The first system was Windows 7, installing the Adobe Application Manager fixed the issue.


On the second system, which is Windows 10, the installation of Adobe Application Manager and Creative Cloud both failed at 5%. I uninstalled Adobe Standard with the adobe uninstall tool and reinstalled, both with an older version of the installer and a newly downloaded installer.


We have downloaded and replaced the OOBE folder within C:/Program Files x86/Common Files/Adobe


Any pointers would be greatly appreciated.


I know this has been an issue in the past but haven't seen any newer issues creep up in the forums, figured a new thread couldn't hurt.

Hello all,
I have a client that I migrated their computer from Windows 7 Pro to Windows 10 Pro.
No issues there.
The issue is with the HP LaserJet 400 MDP M425dn printer that they have.
It is connected via USB and prints out beautifully.
The trouble is with faxing.  We can fax out fine and receive faxes fine.  When the computer was Windows 7 we ran the Digital Fax Wizard that HP provided and when the faxes were received they would go to a folder on the computer.
With Windows 10 we downloaded the latest full driver and there is no Digital Fax Wizard or HP Assistant (no not the support assistant) installed with the software like with Windows 7.  There is zero options to receive a fax on the computer through the printer.
Did HP do away with this in Windows 10?  Or is there a trick to get it to work?
If HP did do away with this, is there any software that we can use that will do the same thing (once a fax is received it is immediately sent to a folder on the computer and not printed out).
Thank you in advance,
Kelly W.

Hi Experts,

One of my PC's at work started to crash and this is what I have been told by technician.

He advised that there was a 'lost disk error' from the C drive, indicating the drive needs to be replaced.

Dell Optiplex 7020, SN: XXXZZ
-confirmed internal C drive is crashed and failing. need to be replaced ASAP
-Samsung SSD 850 Pro 512G,
-created opportunity

Since I have many programs installed there which not all have replacement installation disks, in addition to many custom settings...

I'm wondering if there is something I can do to fix that error, at least for the time being...?


Thanks

Windows 7 with SP1 continued from prior question on Gateway

Back again with confirmation that SP1 and MS Security Essentials did install successfully on January 27, 2020 but Malicious Software components fail consistently from Windows Update.  When installing IE11 from the above link, BSOD and after second reboot and attempt, the update to IE11 began and then was stopped stating other items must be installed first.  No Clue which they could be.  Sigh.  Valiant efforts all around.  

When attempting to install the two items that pop up as important prerequisites (but undefined), error 8024605 blocks the installation efforts.  sfc /scannow finds no problems.  Event log full of consistent errors that Microsoft Antimalware cannot update signatures.  That's event code 2001.

Does this merit a new Question?  Or is it a lost cause.

Previous Q is this:  https://www.experts-exchange.com/questions/29170641/Vista-to-Windows-10-on-Gateway.html

i am using a billing web application that appears to be based upon adobe flash player, it has the layout of a frame of menu options to the left and whichever you click populates the main area of the page with data. I was hoping to find a way to essentially download the data from the left frame, but there is no obvious was of selecting the text, I assume as its based on flash player. Currently viewing the app on chrome on windows 10, but can you think of any way to select or extract the data on a flash app?

How to know what is going on with the BIOS?  We have an HP laptop, it is an Elitebook 8540P.  We recently upgraded Win7Pro to Win10Pro. About a week later we had our first bluescreen. Has done that a couple times, then today went off and shows a problem with the BIOS, but it didn't say what.  We re-booted it and it has run normally since then. It's been about 3 hours now.  Also, this is running 2 external monitors, one through the DP port and one through a USB adapter device.

How do I figure out what is up with BIOS?

Hello,

I am looking for a way to scrip a check of a file where it will read the first line in the file looking for a word like "Apple" in the text file, once it finds it I would like to change the name of the of the file using the word found in the middle of the file name.

For example, the file name 123_xxxxxxxxx.txt contains text in the first line that has the word Apple and if that word exists I need to change the name of that file to this 123_Apple_xxxxxxxxx.txt.  Now if the word I am looking for is not there then no changes need to be made to the file. Also, I would like to ignore any other files that do not start with 123, say 134 for instance.

I would prefer to run this on Windows as much as possible and I would be running it on Windows 7 but might be moving to Windows 10 in the future.

Hello,

I have a GPO which I have configured folder redirection in User Configurations.  I login to a Windows 7 computer and I am seeing the attached error.  When I login a Windows 10 computer, folder redirection works, and I am seeing the MY DOCUMENTS folder is being redirected to our profile shared.  

Anyone who knows how to resolve please advise.  

Many thanks.

I have a company that has approached me to help them upgrade about 25 computers. My question is in regards to licensing. The original computers were purchased from HP about 4 years ago with Windows 10 Pro 64bit factory installed. When they got them, they downgraded them to Windows 7 Pro 32bit with Microsoft Open License they purchased from Microsoft. They have to use 32bit because of a legacy app that they still use.
If they upgrade to Windows 10 Pro 32bit on each machine, obviously we will have to purchase it from Microsoft as an Open License. I know what they are going to ask me so I want to ask before they do: Putting the machine back to Windows 10 will have to be a "customer purchase" because they voided the OEM license by downgrading with a Open License, and moving to 32bit, correct? I just want to be specific in my answer to them as I am sure they will get a second opinion. I think they are of the opinion the license should be free to go back to Windows 10.

Thanks for your help.

I wonder if this is possible? It certainly didn't work when i tried it, having moved the SATA system disk to a USB3 caddy. It tried to boot, the disk having been seen by the BIOS, but clearly something wasn't happy as it went into a never-ending repair cycle. Is there a way to make it happy perhaps?

I tried to google this but all i found was irrelevant stuff about cloning and copying.
GOAL: keep WIndows 7 available and install a different OS on a small, new (internal) SSD.

Hi Experts,

Which Windows 10 book would you recommend for someone coming from Win 7?

Prefer something that covers all changes but short and to the point, not much reading necessary...

... if you are experiencing Windows 10 for the first time, after many years of Windows 7. You need a translation-style book, that maps Windows 7 things to the Windows 10 equivalent

Thanks

Is Windows 10 free for all existing installs of Windows 7 if you do an in place upgrade?

It did work on one VM and physical machine - just confirming

Windows 10 Upgrade error from Windows 7: Error 0xC1900101-0x2000C.  Have run CHKDSK, SFC, and all windows updates.  Have deleted all registry keys in HKLM\Software\Microsoft\Ole except for the "EnableDCOM" one and then restart and try the upgrade again.  Have not removed any subfolders however.  Plenty of HDD free space.

I purchased a Crucial 1 TB M2 SATA SSD last July and only today removed it from its original packaging to try to use it. I installed the SSD into a FIDECO M2 SATA External SSD enclosure - USB 3.1
I connected the FIDECO device to a windows 7 Pro laptop (Dell Precision workstation 7710). I ran the disk manager which displayed a new disk, Disk3 which was not initialised. I proceeded to initialise the disk but got the message "Device not ready" . I have tried to re-seat the SSD in the FIDECO caddy a few ties but to no avail.
When I connect the CADDY to the USB C port on the laptop, the white LED is lit in the caddy indicating at least that power is being applied.
the SSD had remained un-opened for 6 months and this is the first time that it has been used. Is it possible that there is a limited shelf life on this SSD ?
I don't have any other M2 SATA SSD to test the CADDY or another CADDY with which to test the SSD.
Is there any windows 7 diagnostic software which would provide diagnostics to identify whether or not the CADDY is at fault or the uninitialized SSD is at fault ?

I have Windows 7 Pro. I was told before I can get extended service upgrades with a Cloud Solution Provider (which I now have), I need to make sure I have all of the Installation prerequisites.
They gave me the following link.

https://techcommunity.microsoft.com/t5/windows-it-pro-blog/how-to-get-extended-security-updates-for-eligible-windows/ba-p/917807

I have attached a list of the windows updates for the PC.

Do I have everything?

With the phase out of Windows 7, is there any way that users can continue to get security updates of any sort while they transition to the new system?  Suppose a Windows 7 user continues to use their system for the next couple years, what options do they have?

We are trying to upgrade 8 computers from Windows 7 to Windows 10 and they keep failing. We have followed all suggestions in MS document at https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/windows/deployment/upgrade/resolution-procedures regarding the message 0xC1900101 - 0x4000D that we are receiving in EVERY case. These are different computer manufacturers, different processors, different drivers, etc. and we can't isolate a single common factor that may cause this. Any help is more that appreciated?

I have a client that purchased Office 365 thru his webhost, BluHost about 6 months ago. He downloaded and installed it with the help of their tech support. It took 'forever' for it to start processing his email. He finally contacted BluHost Tech Support and it took another week for them to get it 'cleared up. He was finally able to access his email from the www.office.com site, where he downloaded Office for two of his home computers. He discovered that none of them were in sync and I am sure that he fooled around with the settings trying to get his main home computer's pst file merged with Office 365 Outlook. Since then he has what appears to be three separate installs of Office, the cloud version and one each on 2 Windows 7 computers.

My question is, how do I go about getting all his old email and current email (and calendar, tasks, etc.) to sync up so that no matter where he goes, he has an update copy of his Outlook.

I just upgraded from Windows 7 to Windows 10 Pro 64bit on a Opitplex 960.  The video driver reports having a problem ( Intel HD Graphics 9.17.10.4459 ) because of this issue it does not allow me to detect the second monitor.  Both monitors work during boot up and then when logging into windows... Once windows it fully booted I lose the 2nd monitor.  I tried installing driver from DELL support page and also from the Intel Driver support page..  intel driver support page indicates that there is not a updated driver.

Any help with this would be awesome.

For years I've been doing system image/restore in windows 7 easily.  In windows 10 you can do a system image called Backup and Restore (windows 7).  I can create a system image there, but it is unclear how to restore that image in windows 10.  I've googled and the result instructions are either fuzzy or lead to screens that have changed.  Thanks in advance, John Bridges
