I have a simple access 2010 app thet I want to distribute to users who don't have access. I have windows 7.

I used the package wizard to make a package includint my mde together with access 2010 runtime.

When I install the app on the user's computer (windows 8), the access runtime does not install even though the app does.

I installed access 2010 runtime manually on that computer and applied service pack 2. It does install. However, when I click on the first button in the app, I get an error message saying it cannot use my VBA code. Yhe vba code worked on my computer, though.

What can I do?

Thanks in advance

I have a user who is using Access 2013 on a regular basis and after reboot her mapped drives inside Windows Explorer work without issue.  If she then goes to an Access File and opens it (from Windows Explorer) Access opens but fails with a message that says it can not make the connection to \\whatever the path location is\folder.

If she opens Access first and browses inside of Access to the file when the file explorer window pops up the drive letters do not show as connected but they do show as connected inside the native Windows explorer of the OS.   Once she clicks on the drive letter it then shows connected and is able to browse to the file and open in Access.    From that point forward she can open the files any way she wants, from within Access or from within Windows explorer until she reboots.  Once she reboots the entire process resets.   How do I get Access to recognize those drive mappings on startup of the machine?

End user is an Admin on her own machine
She is running Windows 7 as the OS
All office and Windows patches have been applied
Laptop she is using is hardwired to the network.
I have had 2 HP Laptops 450 series that are blue screening.
Any thoughts?
I have a file I need to read from a users computer.  Bitdefender threat scanner.dmp.    I installed windows debugging tools, but the file just looks like code.

Any ideas how to read it?
I am trying to delete files via command line in the c:\users\username\AppData\Local\Microsoft\Windows\WER\ReportQueue\ and I keep geting a "not found" message.   These are the Windows Error Reports and I am trying use sDelete or just regular del from a command line.
I have tried wildcards, full names of the folders in that directory, the RD command,  nothing works.
But I can right-click on them and delete them no problem.  

Looking for a solution so I can run sDelete in a batch file to remove the files and folders in there since they error reports from one application is spilling sensitive data in them when it crashes.    I have about 100 machines to do with numerous profiles on each machine

Thanks in advance
I have a fairly new Dell OptiPlex 3020 PC running Windows 7 professional
- just recently, the PC will not boot. It will come to a Windows blue screen (not the blue screen of death) with a cursor that responds with the mouse. There are no icons on the desktop. we let it run for over 24 hours several times across several days to no avail or change
- this all started two days ago when the user came in and saw all the PC attempting to do a startup repair and it ran for over 24 hours. Attempted several power shutdowns. It would not let you go into normal boot up mode and consistently attempts the start up repair. It will either sit at the start of repair window with a circling cursor and no icons on the screen or the screen would be totally blank
- attempted safe mode boot, same symptoms. Immediately goes into startup repair that never ends
- attempted to boot from a Dell Windows 7 professional CD. The option comes up to go into repair process. I choose the repair process. Then it just spends at a blue screen with no icons and a spinning cursor
- I then attempted to do and install and set up choosing repair and hoping he would give me an option to do an in-place upgrade. Here again, it comes up to a blue window with no icons and says "set up a starting". There is no drive activity. I'll just run it for hours with no progress.
I ran a full Dell diagnostics on the PC including the hard drive. Diagnostics came up clean and found no issues
- my attempt is to get on to the PC …

Hi Experts,

I have running a KMS Server on my network.
I have installed the KMS keys for WIN2016, Office2010 and Office 2013.

What about WIN7 ?
How to add the key for my WIN7 clients ?
And which OS is included with my WIN2016 Server KMS Key ?
The arrows on the comments in Excel print as blocks.  The same document sent to another printer prints fine. Seems like a driver issue, so I downloaded the newest drivers with the same results.  Same driver on different machine works fine.

The is an old program that was installed 2015.  Someone removed the folder from the x86 folder but they did not remove it from the add remove programs & features.  I can't remove it from there as it says .dll not found.  I have to get this off as they are telling me it's a ask toolbar and want it removed.  I don't see it in the registry.  I can't reinstall it as I don't have the program and then remove it correctly.  How can I get this out of the add remove programs.  Thanks.
everything worked fine till now suddenly I started getting a pop up when sending a attachment (PDF Word Excel..) that in contains unsafe attachments and outlook user will not be able to open it (basically it drops the attachment before it reaches the recipient's inbox.

I have modified my Windows 7 registry so a script I have written can implement a corporate email signature.  It locks down the signature so it can not be modified from Outlook, and works perfect. However now I need to select between multiple signatures and the Dropdown is missing.  I tried to add it in manually by going and customizing the ribbon, but it stays grayed out.  When I test this on Office 2016 it works just fine.

is there a way on a windows 7 machine to get the connection speed via the command prompt? I'm wanting to check the speed of several computers remotely
I'm looking for the results that look something like this:

Hi all

How can i allow multiple vpn connection to windows 7 box? Is there a regedit i can do or a free software i can use to overcome this?

This is for a charity organisation so rather use freebie if posisble. If windows can be used then it would be better

I have a classroom of PC's that I need to connect an IP printer to and I'd like to do it quickly.
I'm conducting a training session so I have no admin rights.  But I can CONTROL PANEL=>Add a printer=>Create a new port=>STandard TCPIP port, etc. etc.
How can I make this process quicker so that I don't have to spend so much time at each pc?
I'm thinking some sort of batch file?
I am trying to use remote printing with Teamviewer, but I can't get it to work properly.  I have followed the directions properly to the point that when I print remotely to a local printer, I can see the job hit the print spool for my local printer, but nothing ever prints.  The print spool job appears and quickly disappears as if it has printed.  What else do I need to do to make my setup work properly?

My application exe executed in normal mode and admin mode in windows 7. But in windows 10 it is not working in normal mode.(only working in admin mode).for information my application has created in .NET. so I want to know the any configuration setting is required or code changes required to run exe in normal mode as well.
We are using a special pdf printer. This printer needs a custom defined page size (25.4x25.4mm).
Additional you have to set the TrueType Font to: Download as Softfont.
Now I have the task to distribute this to all users.
We are using NDS and so we have no GPO, but we have Loginscripts and Zenworks as software distribution.
My idea was to deploy a registry script for all users. Unfortunately I can’t found the right key. In these Keys I tried to set it:
I even tried to set it with the “Printing Defaults” of the Printer under:
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\Print\Printers -> Default DevMode
I did the same in the past with Windows XP and I’m sure that it worked with the Key DevModePerUser.

Any ideas how to set the settings for all users?

Sysprep OOBE\generalize
Fails w/ rearm issue in log

Attempted to reset the OOBE but still failed
A customer of mine has two computers - both running windows 7 pro, service pack one and with quickbooks point of sale installed.  
yesterday, the server and the client suddenly stopped working.  The server is working fine now, but I cannot get the client to work.  When I attempt to open point of sale, it starts to open and then stops with everything grayed out.
Since everything is grayed out. I un-installed and re-installed the the program, but that didn't help.
I also set the two computers as a home group and set up a map-drive, but since everything is grayed out when POS is opened up, I can't point it to the file on the server.  Can someone help me with this issue?
I have attached a capture of what it looks like when it stops loading.
It appears that it cannot find the server, but I did a ping both ways and that checks out fine
The computer gave no issue when I set up a map-network drive-that worked fine also.
The computer is an HP z210 running Windows 7 pro.

Each time I start Windows Media Center , the message;
Windows Media Center has stopped working

I click on the “check online for a solution”  and nothing happens.

What I have done:
- Removed and reinstalled Windows Media Center using appwiz.cpl
- Tried to rebuild the Media center store using

That failed.

Booted the system using the “clean boot” procedure (msconfig).  Windows Media center would not start.

The detailed error message is:

What do I do now?
I have an old hard drive that use to be my boot up HD (windows 7) and then after I bought a new ssd drive and install windows 10, I slave my old drive for more total capacity. Now I have to make some room and when I try to delete windows, program files and other folders it said I don’t have permission. Is there a tool or command that will delete not only the folders but also subfolders? I’ll appreciate any help.
I have an unmanaged Cisco/Linksys SG 100-24 switch. It has gigabit capibility.  My servers are connected to this switch at 1 GB and it's on auto detect however my PC's which are capible of gigabit are only connected a 100 mbs.  I've tried to make them 1000 full duplix but I'm only seeing 100.
I have a user who has multiple network drives.  The first time she clicks on the drives they open instantaneously.  If she clicks off them to go to another drive then goes back to that drive it is extremely slow (compare, literally to 2 ms to 30 seconds).  I have rebooted the computer multiple times, there were no updates installed on the machine between it working perfectly yesterday and the problem today, apart from she logged into her computer when the file server was in the process of rebooting.  However, I have rebooted the computer multiple times since the server has been up.  I have tried both her login and my login to the domain and both have the same problem.

My computer with my login does not suffer the same fate, so I am positive that it is not a problem with the file server.
