I believe after updating windows 2010 pro, I've lost access to an old windows xp pro share on the network,  I get a message saying "you can't connect to file share because it's not secure. this share requires the obsolete smb1, which is unsafe and could expose your system to attack. your system requires smb2 or higher..." have anyone faced this?

I have a client that has an obsolete PC with application that still requires Windows XP.
Motherboard died and I recovered it using some old parts, but now it is asking to activate before logon.

The activation over internet and phone is now not working - I guess MS shut down their activation servers for XP while ago.

Any idea how to bypass this.

Hi,

I need to run a 32 bits program on Windows 7 64 bits.

So I installed it in C:\Program Files (x86)\erp\runerp.exe

That program must read an ini file located at C:\Windows\runerp.ini

Currently, I can run the program but it is unable to read the ini file so it's not working.

I also tried to run it "As Administrator"

Domain users have full rights on the ini file.

Can you please help me to make it work?

Thanks and cheers,
Rene

Hello all,

Using Borland C++ 4.52 on a Windows Virtual PC in XP Mode.

I am writing what I thought to be a pretty simple DOS program.  It is basically opening files, filling up structures, printing structure information to a file and that's it.  The files are binary and are less than 32 Kbytes, most are 1K or less.   I am 75% of the way done, it has been running fine up to now.  I just added some code to finish it off, and now I am getting this error at runtime:

"The NTDVM CPU has encountered an illegal instruction.
CS:00cc IP:0106 OP:ff ff 00 00 00 Choose 'Close' to terminate the application."

The thing is, the code I added is just a repeat of the same code that was at the beginning but to different structures.  Seems to have something to do with the code size?  I don't know.  I am not that familiar with memory management.  However, when I removed the stuff I had added, it works again.  

I am attaching both the main code and the extra code I am trying to add.

I would appreciate any guidance.

I have successfully installed Windows XP Profession on an HP computer (p7-1410 desktop) - wonderful learning curve! A senior client panicked when his computer died!

I have been able to download most important drivers (the computer came installed with Windows 8) for the hardware except for the DVD Writer Model SH-216 (HP model: XH-216BB/HPTHF).

I have searched and have had no luck. HP does not supply drivers for XP.

Suggestions? Help!

The scenario:

1.      We have a Windows XP computer which runs an offline PDF to Print comparison.  
2.      As it is XP we have taken it off our network for security reasons
3.      The XP computer is attached to an A1 scanner which scans a printed leaflet
4.      The software then compares the printed scan against the original PDF used to generate the print plates
5.      For reprints this is OK as a copy of the original PDF already exists on the XP computer
6.      For new prints the user needs to go to another computer which is on WorkGroup, browse for the file, copy the original PDF to a USB, copy from the USB to the Windows XP computer, then run comparison

It is step 6 which I am trying to improve.  Can I directly connect the XP computer to the networked computer using some sort of software that isolates but still allows a folder to be browsed and a file copied.  I hope I have made this clear

Hello Experts -

I have found that if I don't Disable Scripting (in Internet Options), that displaying web content in Internet Explorer is extremely slow - making many sites almost unusable.

Generally speaking, they freeze up or the scroll bars get stuck. I often get messages that say "web site is not responding" and iExplorer will then display a "recover webpage" button. The latter just reloads the same page to drag the experience anew.

But there are a few sites that are exceptions, if I idisable scripting as the default behavior via the setting in Internet Options. These sites are worthless without scripting.

So, is there a way I can get iExplorer turned to allow scripting for a few pre-defined sites - leaving scripting disable for all the rest.

Thanks.

I have an old simulation program that I want to play with and it will only run on Windows XP. So, I want to use my old COMPAQ Presario CQ60 laptop for only this purpose. I have wiped the HDD, initialized and formatted it in preparation. When I try to install XP I get the Blue Screen error that is attached. I read somewhere that XP will not install on SATA that I need to change settings to IDE. I have never heard of that and I cannot find any IDE settings in the BIOS. Please advise.

Thank you!

I am trying to install Windows XP Pro SP2 in Windows 10 Pro with the Oracle Virtual Box. The computer is laptop HP Spectre 360 with an SSD. The Virtual Box itself has been installed smoothly, as well as the Guest Additions. RAM of 4096  M and a VirtualBox Disk Image type Hard Disk (15 G, dynamic) was selected. However, when I start installation of the Win XP from an external CD drive on a USB, some time down the road, I get an error message "Cannot format the partition".

Any suggestions?

Hi
I have a PC running Win XP x64 SP2 with Windows Media Player 11. I need to record the screen (no audio) and playback on the same PC. I'm using FFmpeg and have grabbed a command off google to get me started and tweaked it to get it to use the Windows Media Video codec

ffmpeg -y -rtbufsize 100M -f gdigrab -framerate 30 -probesize 10M -draw_mouse 1 -i desktop -c:v wmv2 -r 30 -preset ultrafast -tune zerolatency -crf 25 -pix_fmt yuv420p "video output.wmv"

Using pretty much the same command except swapping the codec (-c:v libx264) and filetype to ("video output.mp4") results in nice clear video. When I use the initial example, it works but is not very clear and pretty pixelated.

Unfortunately I can't install codecs and better media plays on the PC so I'm trying to work with Windows Media Player.

Does anyone have any idea how I can get better quality video which will play in Windows Media Player 11?

Thanks

My backup files are corrupted. So was looking for a recovery tool. But the issue is there are so many tools to choose from.
Do anyone of you have any idea regarding any good recovery solution. I even tried to search manual procedures but it was of no use.
So kindly suggest me any manual process, if you know any (as i don't like to pay for a recovery solution)
If not, then suggest me any good recovery tool to repair and recover my BKF files.

I have even searched the web and found following tools which would help in recovery of data from the corrupt bkf files.  Kindly review these tool. Looking for a user review

1 . Aryson bkf repair tool  (http://www.arysontechnologies.com/bkf-recovery.html)
2. Backup Recovery Tools (http://www.msbkffilerecovery.com/bkf-recovery.html)

Thanks in advance
