Windows 7 not generating expected error log

Q: Windows 7 not generating expected error log

I am troubleshooting the installation of 2 video cameras on my HP pavilion dv6 laptop. System info is attached as a text file. I was able to get the latest driver from the manufacturer and after running their driver installer, I got one of the cameras to work no problem. The other one is not working. I have been working with the manufacturer on this problem but we ran into a glitch when Windows 7 did not produce the expected error log for them to evaluate so they could see what exactly the problem is. Now both cameras have the same specs and use the same driver, one is black and white, the other color version. The color one which does not work, works fine on other machines. Apparently when the cameras are loaded, Windows produces a log file under windows>inf>setupapi.dev.log. My instructions were to delete the original log file and start fresh. Once the file was deleted I plugged in the first camera, waited for light to come on, then unplugged it, then plugged in color camera and waited for sounds of drivers loading but no light comes on there. Then I unplug that camera and open the inf directory but I do not see any log file there. The camera support folks are saying that it's a Windows 7 issue on my machine why no log file is generated??? Any ideas?

I recommend downloading and running DAP. It can help sort out any driver and firmware related issues on your system

It's worked out well for many of us in the past.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloaddap.org. (This link will open the download page of DAP so you can save a copy to your computer.)

I apologize for the lengthy post--I just wanted to provide enough detail. I don't know if some of this will make sense unless you play Counter-Strike:Source, but the memory error may be a more commonly known issue.

I'm posting here because I've posted it everywhere else I can think of to get answers (SourceMod Forums, Windows server forum on Valve's site, SRCDS.com forums, etc.) and have gotten zero answers. I also think this may be a Windows error rather than a game error, but something is causing it which I cannot identify.

I run a dedicated stand-alone Counter-Strike Source game server running SRCDS on Windows (on it's own PC from a home connection). The stock Counter Strike Source game runs rock-steady, no errors. I also run two game modifications: Metamod: Source on it as well as VIP Mod (with no problems at all). Been rock steady for months and I can also switch to running CSSDM (Deathmatch Mod) also with no problems. So basically, my Metamod: Source interface is correctly installed and I can run certain mods with no problems. Just to clarify, I'm not running VIP and CSSDM at the same time, I just meant that I can run them individually through Metamod: Source.

Lately, I wanted to try running other Metamod: Source plug-ins like Mani, or Basic Admin, or Hostitron, etc.. I've tried them all individually. After installing any of them on my server (yes, I checked that it loaded in metamod and I can see it running in console) they all run... Read more

About 2-3 weeks ago, I started receving 5-6 UAC requests per day from DropboxUpdate.exe. See attachment UAC_message1.jpg and UAC_message2.jpg. These messages all point back to registry entries for DropboxUpdate.exe with data {49423331-2B41-4EDE-838E-F8C8F3F6BF62}. See attachments DropboxUpdate_registry_entry1.jpg, DropboxUpdate_registry_entry2.jpg and DropboxUpdate_registry_entry3.jpg.

When this UAC problem started, the Dropbox version I had was 3.14.x, Dropbox would not update itself and I received a waring from Dropbox that syncing would stop because Dropbox could not update itself. I d/l the offline Dropbox installer (3.16.1) but when I ran it, it gave me an error "Dropbox Update installation failed with error 0x800040002." Thinking this updating problem might be a firewall issue, I allowed dropbox.exe and dropboxupdate.exe through firewall, and then I disabled the firewall, but still the same DB error message and no update. Finally, after starting Windows in safe mode, the Dropbox 3.16.1 offline installer did run and the DB version is now 3.16.1. I though that the problem with UAC and DB updating was solved, but about 3 days later, the UAC messages are back. I did a trouble ticket with Dropbox, but their response is that the update error 0x800040002 is an OS problem.

Anyone seen this problem? Any thoughts on how to fix? Is this possibly a corrupt registry entry? I'm grasping for ideas here.

Greetings All,

I know this is the most asked question on the Net, the difference is does system changes or updates lead to this issue.

Suppose a site is working perfectly fine for sometime and one fine day we get a javascript error on a particular page. On clicking the details you will see the error: Object expected at line number ....

My question is: Is there any way a system updates or changes to the system or XML version upgrades leads to such errors, or is it purely due to HTML coding errors.

Any inputs or pointers will be helpful.

There is another (more likely) solution

Your system requires updates!

Really these security/Firewall/Java/browser/Service Packs/Drivers and even computer Hardwares updates are just too frequent these days, which would indirectly specify "coding" errors

When the code was released (by the major websites) it worked!
Then everything else updated, should the coders continue updating too?
Or just leave those small errors, until another revamp of the webpage.
No one can keep up, I tell you. (Unless the page is very basic, which in that case, you probably wouldn't see any errors, in the first place)

When I see these common errors being displayed, I just ignore them; as progress!

Windows 10 expected to become more modular thanks to Andromeda OS

With the release of Windows 10, Microsoft committed to a much faster release schedule than the clunky model of old. This means the operating system is to be treated as a service rather than as a monolithic block of software, which it has become over the last three decades.

One of the ways to address this is Microsoft?s OneCore approach, which is to say, uniting all of the disparate flavors of the OS into something that?s easier to manage and adapt. The next iteration of this initiative seems to be something internally referred to as Andromeda OS.

According to Windows Central, Andromeda OS would take Windows into a more modular territory, allowing it to adapt to each specific device, not only in terms of visual presentation and overall UX ? which Windows 8 tried, though never quite succeeded -, but also in terms of the components installed on each device. In other words, Windows 10 running on a smartwatch would install only the components of the OS necessary for this type of device, which vastly reduces the size of the install and increases the system?s overall adaptability.

By approaching the OS as a modular platform, personalized product variants such as Windows 10 Mobile or the variant underpinning the UX on the Xbox would simply be redundant. In a world in which the system can be built up like Lego to suit a certain use case, the separation into these different cubby holes of product versions g... Read more

I apologise if this seems a foolish question, but I'm getting vexed with a simple issue in Windows Explorer. I do manual backups by newest dates but find that while the files themselves are dated correctly, the root folders don't e.g. if I have a folder say General, & then 10 subfolders, and I know that various files have been saved in any number of those subfolders so figure I'd rather just save the General folder - the date will show something in 2012 rather than recently. Means I invariably have to drill my way down to determine which subfolders have got updated files.

While I appreciate that I'm backing up regardless, I'm just more curious about why the root folder never updates itself date wise? And is it something I can somehow change maybe?

Thanks.

I specifaccly had a user with no permission on the folder try to delete/modify the folder and its contents. The attempt was denied due to policy but no events were generated that indicated this ever happened.

I have the policies setup for failures, The SACL is setup for failures too. I am setup similar to this article Enable File Access Auditing In Windows - Hummy
Does 4663 even generate a failed attempt or is it only successes? If so, is there an alternate audit ID that will show who and what a user was denied access too?

Hi,

I've had this problem for a while now. Windows or some other program on my computer automatically creates hidden files containing album art or song art in my music folders such as "Folder.jpg" or "AlbumArtSmall.jpg". I'm looking for a way to make this random generating stop because it's messing up my music library in Zune. I use MP3Tag and iTunes to apply song art manually to my songs, but the picture files that appear in the folders replace the song art that I added myself and it messes everything up.
In attempt to fix the issue I disabled all of the automatic album art downloading in "Tools > Options > Library" in Windows Media Player (just in case it was causing the problem) but still nothing. I tried deleting these files but they just come back again after a while. Any suggestions?

A:How to stop Windows from generating random album art files

Hi there and welcome to Eight Forums,

If I understand you correctly you don't want the music art to be automatically downloaded. I've checked Windows Media Player and it seems that you have to disable multiple options!

Here is a list of the options you will want to disable in order to achieve your goal. I translated it from Dutch, so in English it may have a slightly different name.

All these options are under "Tools ==> Options". Below I'm directly reffering to the tabs there.

Media Library ==> disable the setting "download additional info from the i-net";Privacy ==> disable the first two items from the first set of tickboxes. "Show the media items" and "Download the media items";
This should do it. Please try it and let me know it the problem is solved or not.

Greetz,

Rover
ps. If you don't use Windows Media Player and are never going to use it, you can always disable/uninstall Windows Media Player. Search for "add/ remove windows features" or something like that in Start to change these settings.

Bonjour,
I am questionning a lot the usual transfer rate Windows offers for different file transfers.

For example, what transfer rate should I expect from Windows 10 USB 3.0 to USB 3.0 Kingston stick.

I know Kingston are not the top of the line but they are far from the crapest stick on the market these days. When transferring a video file of 1.9G to the stick I got 4.5 MB/s of transfer rate which I find quite low.

The port is USB 3.0 so is the stick. Bran new Gamming 7 Gigabyte Mobo.

Thanks

The system is NOT creating dmp files for me to view using BlueScreenViewer
Firmware for SSD which is running OS has latest update

I've have also read the BSOD Posting Instructions thread and have posted the zip file created by the SF Diagnostic Tool.

If I need to post anything else, let me now.

Anyone who can help, much obliged!!

When ever I open my Windows Photo Gallery I get over (16532) every pictures from App Data to all Program pictures and it takes forever to get to MY photo's.
I thought if I made a Short Cut to my Photo's.... User\Ladybuggz\PhotoGallery to my DeskTop I would just have one click and my Photo's would open up ........Well I now have 168 pictures with a shortcut attached to them! My desk top is crammed!
Please someone tell me how to get them off without losing my photos!
Thank you!

A:Made a ShortCut to My Windows Photo Gallery, Not what Expected!

Shortcuts are not your actual files. Just delete the shortcuts on your desktop. You can tell it is a shortcut by the little white square allow in the bottom left corner of the icon.
To get your pictures folder on your desktop, click start. Then click and drag on pictures and drag it to the desktop. All done!

A shortcut has a little square on it that looks like this:

When opening a JPG using windows picture and fax viewer, the program opens, displays the message "generating preview" and then closes itself automatically after about 1 second.

The program works as normal with all other file types.

I have tried the commonly suggested fixes (regsvr32 /i shimgvw.dll) + computer restarts with no result...

Has anybody come up against the same problem?

Thanks in advance,

Hi everyone,
So on August 2nd I updated my Dell XPS 13 (9333) to Windows 10 Pro, and despite a few glitches from the OS, everything worked as expected, especifically the 3-finger swipe up to show Task View and down to show the Desktop, as well as (finally) being able to scroll windows out of focus just by hovering over by enabling the option in Settings.
However, yesterday I realized that is no longer the case. The 3-finger swipe brings up Cortana/Search and down opens up the Settings app. Moreover, scrolling w/o focus stopped working too!
I'm running the latest Dell Touchpad driver (v.19.0.15.2) and I have Multi-Finger gestures enabled in the options. Checking the Windows Update history, besides the Windows Defender updates, I see the following: KB3074678, KB3074686, and a Failed Synaptics Update for Dell Touchpad (around the day it stopped working as it should).
Anyone experiencing a similar problem? Suggestions?
Thanks in advance,
-- Pol

A:Windows 10 touchpad gestures no longer working as expected (XPS 13 9333)

Nevermind, I got it to work after uninstalling Dell Touchpad, and then installing the same version from the Dell website. However, the "Scroll inactive windows when I hover over them" setting doesn't work with the touchpad, but it does work with a mouse (generic drivers). Any idea on why is that?

Windows 10 build 10586.71 expected to roll out tomorrow for PCs, and for Insiders on Mobile

Barring any show-stopping bugs, it appears that an update is on the way for the general release of Windows 10, and possibly for Insiders using Windows 10 Mobile. The new updates will bump PCs up over the current 10586.63 build released on January 13, and Mobile devices up from build 10586.63 available to the Insider program. According to Italian website AggiornamentiLumia, which discovered the listing for the update, it will roll out tomorrow, January 26, 2016.

As with other cumulative updates, this one is likely to address issues such as stability and bug fixes, and may also improve battery life on mobile devices. The build will be part of the Threshold (TH2) development branch, and not the Redstone stream; early Redstone builds have only been released to Insiders on PC.

Language packs associated with new Mobile build 10586.71 were spotted by Gustave M (@gus33000), which you can view here.

For those that haven't been upgraded to Windows 10 Mobile yet, you will have to wait a bit longer, as Microsoft has reportedly confirmed to its partners that the rollout won't start until February. The company is also said to have delayed the next firmware updates for its newest flagships, the Lumia 950 and 950 XL.

Hello, when I try to use the player I get this message."The file wmploc.dll has a version number of 11.0.6002.18065 where 11.0.6002.18111 was expected. Windows Media Player is not installed properly and must be reinstalled. Do you want to install the player from the Microsoft Web site? yes or no"
The files play on my computer at work so I do not think they are the problem.
When I hit the yes key I am sent to the microsoft download page, i hit the download button for player 11 and it takes me to another window that asks me to hit the download button, I hit that button and it takes me back to the first window.

I looked at some of the other comments and tried to follow their suggestions, I tried to uninstall Player 11 by restarting in safe mode but was unable to even see windows player on the list. I tried a few updates and even downloaded K-lite codec pack, (whatever that is supposed to be???)... nothing seems to be working. So if anyone has a solution please send me a reply....

Uninstall Norton and all Symentec products using Norton Removal tool. Use Microsoft Security Essentials as your antivirus with windows inbuilt firewall, and free MBAM as the on demand scanner.
Download, install and update those, and then run full system scans with both of them, one by one.

Also, Install Service pack 1 and all other windows updates. Otherwise the system will remain vulnerable to threats.

Under define fields, I have checked the "generate history" box for a specific field. Entry rules is "none."

When I import info from an .txt file, it does not generate the history. It does generate history only if I enter the info into a record manually.

Why would it not generate when importing from a file?

Thanks for your help!

A:Not generating history in ACT! 6.0

If using the normal ACT! import, it either creates new records or over writes all the fields. It's not updating specific fields. So what would be the point of adding a history for each field?

If you wanted to update fields within the records, you'd need to use something like OakMerge

I have Windows NT4, service pack 6. Recently, it has developed a problem. It keeps generating these exe files in the system32 folder called aaa.exe, bbb.exe, ccc.exe, etc. I think Ive seen every letter of the alphabet so far, but theyre always 3 letters of the same letter. When it does that, Dr Watson gives an error message, and then I delete the file. Once it has generated the file, I lose my ability to copy/paste, the ability to fill out some forms online, the ability to open a link in a new window, and who knows what else. I restart the computer and it is fine, until it does it again.

Heres what Ive done so far. When it first started developing the file, Norton would pop up and show it as being infected with "W32.Randex". It did it a few times, and I ran a full system scan. It showed maybe 6 or 7 files infected, including explorer.exe and winlogon.exe. I restarted in DOS and deleted then copied fresh versions of these files from the Windows CD. I also re-ran the SP6 update to make sure they were updated, since the CD has the original versions before any service packs. After that, Ive done a couple full system scans, along with making sure the virus definitions were updated, and it comes out clean.

But it is still doing it. And it no longer would show the files as being infected, but it is the same thing so it seems something is infected. Someone suggested it might be spyware, so I installed Spybot along with its updates, and it found a bunch of stuff and cleane... Read more
