I am switching from InstallShield Express to Inno Setup. All works well except the Icon displayed after the install is the Visual Foxpro icon. During the install the correct icon shows during the install process, but the Fox icon is the final icon on the users screen after the install

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)


My friend gave me a program he wrote. He used the inno installer. When I try to run the setup file, nothing happens. He said its a problem on my PC after I asked if he gave me a trojan or something.

Any help?

and finally, just HOW MUCH do you trust this buddy?

I just downloaded about 4 different files off the internet. All the files were in zip format. I extracted all the files only to get a setup.exe file. All 4 setup files have been modified using inno setup. When I double-clicked the application the first time it came up with the setup wizard. I clicked next and it gave me an error stating the version was out of date and I need to download the update from the vendor. I tried the other applications and now nothing happens after double-clicking on the inno setup.exe apps. If anyone knows what is the problem either with my computer or the files I downloaded please help me. Anything to point me in the right direction would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.
I have already downloaded and installed Inno Setup from the vendors website and it did nothing.

Hello, I am posting this question in the hopes of getting some insight into how I should proceed. I have been a programmer for some time but I have limited experience with MFC/C++ dlls. I am currently using Inno Setup, instead of InstallShield, and I have to have Inno Setup to call the dll in order to do some specific processing. How should I go about creating the dll? When I create the MFC dll, it will create a class and I am not sure InstallShield or Inno Setup can use a class from a MFC dll. The examples that come with Inno Setup are C dlls, not C++ or MFC. I just hope I am making sense.

I have an ethernet cable linked from my PC to my XBOX 360. I bridged my PC connection to the XBOX so that it can share my internet connection to access the console's online features. This is what the network area on my PC looks like:

The problem I'm having is in the taskbar. The internet icon just shows the bars with a red cross through them (as if to signify the internet isn't working), instead of before the bridge where it showed the speed levels of the internet with the coloured bars.

I know this is a minor thing, but is there any way I could get the icon back to its original state while keeping the bridge?

The laptop in question currently has one user account set up in it ( in user accounts ) but if you look in the laptop there is another account for the same user with there name spelled incorrectly. unfortunately most of the software installed on the laptop is associated with that wrong spelling and it is driving that user crazy. is there anything I can do to fix this. I imagine i could delete the "bad" user but what will happen to all the programs associated with it?


A:1st user setup with incorrect spelled name

Hello Leslie, and welcome to Seven Forums.

The programs installed on the PC will not be removed if you delete the user account. You may need to create new shortcuts from the .exe file of the program in a new account though.

Since "User Accounts" in the Control Panel only shows the one account, where are you seeing the other account at?

Could this be a case of the account had it's display name changed, and still has the original name for it's "C:\Users\(user-name)" folder?

Hope this helps for now,

I have .htm and .html files set to open with Firefox, and they do. However, the icon is IE. I've already tried the Icon Cache Rebuild but it didn't work. So how do I make the icon show Firefox instead of IE?

And just to be clear, I reiterate: This is not an issue of the wrong program opening; it is an issue with the incorrect icon being displayed.

A:Incorrect icon for file association

Hello cbiweb,

As a test, use "Open with" to set .htm and .html files to always open with IE, then set them to always open with Firefox to see if that may toggle it to use the correct icon again.

Open With - Change Default Program

If not, then you might see if reinstalling Firefox will be able to correct the icon.

When I initially installed Win10 my ethernet network tray icon was what I would call normal. However, after a number of upgrades it now looks as though its corrupted as its missing a few lines. If I goto select which icons appear on the task bar the icon there is corrupt and matches the tray icon. The icon in the network and ether section of settings shows the correct icon.

I am trying to setup my Outlook at home for multiple email accounts, and while the end result is close to what I want, the security seems a little suspect. Here is the background information: I am running Windows XP, with one user account. I am using Outlook 2002 SP3. I have three email accounts, all of which originate from the same ISP. What I WANT to have happen is that I have a separate Outlook login for each of my three email accounts, after I log into Windows with my one user profile.
Here is what I setup so far: Using the Control Panel/Mail application, I setup three separate (mail) profiles, and selected the option for ‘Prompt for a profile to be used’. Also, there are three separate data files which are associated with each of the three email addresses (Outlook1.pst, Outlook2.pst, Outlook3.pst). As far as I can tell, all that setup is correct. When I open Outlook, immediately – before the application finishes loading – the ‘Choose Profile’ prompt box appears on the screen and forces me to select one of the three that I setup previously. So far, so good. Now comes the part that does not make sense to me. No matter who I am, I can select any of the three profiles, and the next action that occurs is for the inbox to open. The good news is that the inbox is correctly associated with the profile I selected. The bad news is, well, why is the inbox opening without asking me for my password? At this point, I can open any message that already exists in the inbox. No pas... Read more

I can't find a driver for Inno 3D MX 400 TV. Probably (I hope - not), you will have some probmlems like this in a future. And i can help you too. :angel:

A:Inno 3D MX 400 TV driver need

Your Inno graphics card is based on the NVIDIA Geforce 2 MX400 graphics chip so the appropriate NVIDIA driver would probably work. However InnoVision also supply their own driver for it and you can get it here: http://www.inno3d.com/support/support_download.html
Click on 'Nvidia' for product type.
Click on 'GeForce 2 MX' for product (Geforce 2 MX includes the MX400 model)
Click on 'Display Driver' in software box.
Click appropriate operating system then click 'Download'.
If driver doesn't work get the GeForce driver here from the chip manufacturer (they supply a 'forceware' unified driver which supports all their graphics chips in a single driver -- doesn't mention 3D support though, so your probly better off using the Inno driver. http://www.nvidia.com/content/drivers/drivers.asp

I hope somebody can help me here? I have an Inno 3D GeForce 8500GT GPU. Yes, I know it's cheap and nasty but it does the job and is all I could afford. Is it possible to put a decent fan/heat sink on this card please? At the moment, it only has a very small sort of bakalite/plastic heatsink and a very small, plastic fan. I was just wondering if there was a way I could remove that set-up and put a bigger, decent fan/heat sink unit on the card to make it cooler and thus perfom better? As far as I know, at the moment it isnt overheating or causing problems but it's better to be safe than sorry as I intend to start loading and playing games soon and I believe that could up the heat values etc. if anyone could help me and it is possible, could they suggest the set-up I would need please as I don't have the foggiest idea what I am looking for?
Many thanks in advance.

Trust me, I do a lot of gaming, and I own a 512MB GeForce 8500GT, and I haven't had a single problem with heat. Not one.

If this is your card, then you will have no problems at all. Mine has about the same size fan, if not smaller.

You won't need a new cooling system on your 8500GT.

A:?is MSASb1 disallowing inno installs?

Probably the simplest fix is to uninstall MSAS beta1. (I'd also delete this from programs.)Continue with the install of the "winrar, (Inno install pack) ".Then get the new (6/24/05) update beta release of MSAS here MicroSoft AntiSpyWare Refresh DownloadThis will avoid the conflict with the MSAS, I think. Anyway, you'll know now not to blockany changes for that particular program.I'd also reset the system restore processes - you might need it in the future...Seems the easiest fix to me.Regards,Koan

A:Available graphics memory in Inno 3d Geforce GTX 550 Ti

Assuming that you have installed the FULL driver for the card from nvidias website and not just the windows update driver, the answer may lie in you BIOS settings.

I assume that you are on a 64 bit version of windows?

I can't point anything out specifically, but there may be settings in your BIOS WRT the video card that may limit the amount of ram is uses (AGP Aperture, etc). If you were to stick that card in to a computer with 32 bit windows you would have NOTHING left to run your OS/programs unless memory aprturing (or whatever it might be called in your BIOS) was enabled.

I've installed wxp from my computer, by coping the files of wxp pro then installing wxp from there .The problem now is that I didn't put the xp files into folder,, as I usually do , I just copied the several folder of wxp onto the drive, then I proceeded to install , and after the successfull installation I discovered that this infamous xp icon is displayed on the drive letter and when I click on it from my computer folder (on the desktop) it start the wxp installation setup, and that is a no no! in my book, so now I want to delete that folder ,which I think is the I386 folder in explorer , but I'm a little reluctant to do so 'cause I don't want things to get ugly and have to spend another day installing the several gegs of stuff so according to the info that I have provided here , is it safe to delete the I386 folder that I think is where the wxp copied files are.

Hello, hope this is the right place. But for some reason all my winrar archive started showing as a white piece of paper with the top right hand corner folded in, and in the middle the winrar archive icon shows. Ive never had a problem like this before and was wondering how do i fix this problem back up so it shows the winrar icon not with a white piece of paper behind it. Ive got AVG Antivurs Free version edition 9 and I've got malwarebytes anti malware, so i have no idea what could be causing the problem. I have attached a screenshot of what i mean. Note:I have already tried file association and associating it to a different file and then re associating it. Also have tried uninstalling winrar and then installing it again. Thank you Much appreciated Dazz

A:File icon incorrect file association correct

Click Start, Run, Regedit.

Navigate to HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Classes and scroll down until you find RAR or WinRar (Not sure as I don't have it); whichever it is, it should show the (default) entry as RaR File (you could also use Find > RAR File).

It should also have a subkey of DefaultIcon. Click on this and it'll show the path where it gets the icon from. The last number in the path, after5 the comma, is the icon selected from that file. The normal path should be pointing to the Winrar.exe file, and the number something other than 0.

Export the key first, just in case you need to restore it, and change the number to 0. Should change the icon shown for Winrar archive to the main one.

If not, report back on anything that deviates from the above, including a screenshot of the registry keys.

Before I upgraded my PC, game James Bond Nightfire worked with my old pc even UT 2003 worked but with very bad graphic.

SO he updated and now works fine.

A friend of mine had exactly the same problem last week- Medal of Honor would start and freeze after a while, sometime the pc would reboot during a game, Mafia froze, IL-2 Sturmovik. After testing everything (he's got a AMD 2200 XP, 512 DDR Ram, ATI 8500 LE 128) we found the problem to be the power supply. If your machine is fine using any other application aside from games (as his was) then the video card is needing more power then the system can supply. Buy a more powerful power supply, swap them out, test your games and if the problem recurrs you can always take the new power supply back. Unfortunately, you can't go cheap on power supplies, and most that come with the case are underpowered! Let me know if this is the problem.

I setup a workstation running Windows XP, this computer was setup with one monitor hooked up to the video card, I then put in a second monitor to go on the left of this monitor. In the display setup it showed monitor 2 as being on the left and monitor 1 on the left. I right clicked on monitor 2 and did "set as primary" the issue that I'm facing is, after a reboot, all icons are on the first monitor on the right rather than on the left. I'm not on site so I can't easily swap the cables on the video card outputs. Is there a way to make it so that the icons stay on the 2nd monitor which is also the primary monitor? I've been googling everywhere but most information I find people are suggesting using some third party software, but I'm pretty sure you can do the trick without the use of third party software.

I have a laptop that was previously running Win 7 Ultimate x64 andI upgraded that to Win 8 Pro x64 quite some time back. On this laptop, when I have several windows open for an app on my task bar, when I repeatedly left-click on the task bar icon, it cycles through the app's windows. That is, as I click, the app window will show up in the foreground and the next click will show the app's next window, etc.

Now I have a new laptop, with Win 8 Pro x64 pre-installed and I no longer have the cycle-through feature. When I click on an app that has multiple windows, all it does is show me the preview windows down by the taskbar.

I searched and searched and could not find where such an option exists for me to enable that feature to cycle through when I click and I couldn't find anything. Nor was I able to find any posts on the matter.

Does anyone know how I can enable this feature on my new laptop so that both are functioning the same?

Ive read the Instructions on how to setup XP to dual-boot with Vista...
However, im concerned (and someone mentioned it happened to them in the thread)
that when XP SETUP is finished with the TX part of setup and reboots PC to go into the
rest of setup (GUI XP SETUP)) it wont continue....?
is this right>? ive read elsewhere that if the partitions for XP are created in Vista that it wont boot into the rest of setup....

I could make the partition during XP setup if this will help?


A:Vista/XP Dual Boot - Will XP setup continue into GUI setup after reboot of 1st part.?

When I did my dual boot [using win2k / vista] I used an existing partition that was created by vista. No problem at all. It is a little more difficult than say installing win2k after xp however as long as you follow the instructions there are no problems.

As always make an image of your system before you start. This way if something does go wrong, it is a simple matter to restore the image and be back where you started from.

Is there any info recorded anywhere in Windows, that tells me the name of a setup file
that (ideally including it's path)?

An executable can usually (always?)
be opened with 7-zip, often (like itunes) revealing the executable internally to contain a collection of .msi's. Maybe info about the execution of one of these is logged somewhere, in which case (with a bit more effort) I think the 'origin' (setup.exe) could
be inferred...

I read that the journal records every file that's opened!!! is this human-readable?

Thinking aloud. I have about 7 widi setup executables I obtained whilst trying to setup
intel widi, similar scenario with several other applications installed on various VHDs. I'd like to purge my downloads>>setups folder, but retain installation-media for important applications (just in case).

So much info is installed during installation (ie setup/msi stuff as well as appdata of
course), surely something this simple must be possible somehow, somewhere! somebody?

The computer restarted unexpectedly or encountered an unexpected error. Windows installation cannot proceed. To install Windows, click "OK" to restart the computer, and then restart the installation.I restart, and the cycle continues. This happens whether I try to boot normally or in safe mode.

Not sure how you deployed them, but if Startup Repair doesn't help when run from System Recovery Options then I would redeploy the image or run Factory Recovery from its partition after backing up the disks.

If you don't have one and they are same hardware, simply backup one's image using Win7 backup imaging or free Macrium - Image your system then boot System Recovery options to Recover Using an Image from its external storage location which you have connected.

If they are not same exact hardware or Image hangs at startup, SysPrep the original before deploying to remove all drivers, activation, SID and HID's.

Hi everybody.
I got dell latitude d800 laptop with dead display and without os (supposed to be XP, sticker is intact).
Hunting for affordable good shape lcd panel will take a while so I made unattended cd with nlite and installed XP but external monitor didn't fire up
I checked the installation with live CD and it looks like complete install so I got an idea that the install is lacking dell drivers particularly video driver (nvidia fx 5200 go card).
Even more: it's possibly lacking any video driver 'cause native display was disconnected.
So I have to somehow inject video driver and force setup to install it. Then XP must fire up external monitor and then I can update all the drivers.
I read about winnt.sif and $OEM$/Drivers directory but that all about "naked" drivers like .sys .cat .inf ... but the drivers I got from dell have also .dll .exe and other files but nvidia driver even has its own setup.exe.
How to make XP setup to install such drivers during unattended setup?

Hi Guys & Gals,

I've been trying to get my Home XP(SP2) desktop talking to my XP(SP2) Laptop, using tips gleemed from the threads in this forum.

My desktop does not require a sign-on.
My laptop is from work and requires sign-on to the work Domain.
I have put my Desktop into a workgroup of the same name as the laptop domain.
I have enabled file & print sharing, and added the laptop into my trusted Norton security zone on the Desktop.
I have shared folders on both machines.

I can see the Workgroup from my Laptop but not the desktop within it.
I can see the Domain from my Desktop but it times out if I try to drill further.
I cannot see my shared printer (connected to the desktop) from the laptop.
I can map from my laptop to desktop (shared folder), but not vice versa.

The only thing I haven't tried is to run the Network setup wizard on either the desktop or laptop.

Here's my question: if I run that wizard on my laptop, will it destroy my work network settings?

OR any other ideas what I should try to get each machine to see each other?

I'm trying to install windows xp, after formatting, it goes thru the process of copying the xp files and automatically reboots. Now after rebooting, instead of this installation to continue, it just goes back to the same setup process again i.e right from the beginning again of wanting to format and repeating the same process again. It does not continue with the installation as it normally does. Xp disk is good. no problem with it.
One thing strange I noted is when booting with the XP disk in, it automatically goes thru with the XP setup without asking 'Click any key to boot from CD-Rom'
Any ideas to solve this? Thank you all in advance

The simple answer is a stuck key, or a faulty key signal. Could you post your system specs to give us a little more to go on?

So I decided to experiment with Raid 0 on my i7 system to see if it had any impact on video encoding performance using two 500Gb Green Caviar WD HDD's. Specifically, I encoded a 700Mb AVI to DVD. Unfortunately, it took almost 3 times longer over a single HDD setup.

Prior to this, I installed Vista Ultimate (non-Raid mode) on 5 different 500Gb HDD's and a Velociraptor and ran the same test above. Keep in mind that the video file and the software were always on the Main Drive and there were no jumpers on any of them.

Here's A summary:

WD 500Gb Green Caviar 16mb Cache = 13 mins
WD 500Gb Green Caviar 16mb Cache = 36 mins
WD 500Gb Green Caviar 16mb Cache = 13.5 mins
WD VelociRaptor 150Gb 16mb Cache = 12.5 mins
Seagate Barracuda 500Gb 16mb Cache = 39 mins
Seagate Barracuda 500Gb 32mb Cache = 37 mins
Raid0 WD 2 x 500Gb Green Caviar = 34 mins

So is this AAM related causing such dramatic variations?

When I get home tonight, I plan to run a program that's supposed to disable AAM.

I mistakenly launched XP Setup and want to know how to stop it from progressing further. I have another XP installed on another virtual disk. Rebooting from there allowed me delete the Setup files. Or so I thought ! The main XP installation however continues to try to launch Setup. Just about whatever I do, it ends in tears. My question is … how do I stop XP on this disk from thinking it has to launch Setup? I don’t want to reinstall XP, as that will involve a huge amount of work to recreate my environment.

I am able to choose my operating system when I press F8

If I launch the corrupt system in “safe mode” or “domain controllers”, everything appears to progress normally until the very end… when the XP black desktop appears (and just before the icons appear). At that point I get the error message
“Windows XP cannot run under safe mode” and I am asked to click OK to consult a log file. The screen however is actually frozen at that point, so I have to unplug the machine.

Otherwise if I launch in debugging mode or “Last known good configuration”m I get a message saying “Setup will restart now” and then “ Setup is being restarted…” while the usual XP installation logos start to appear e.g. “An exciting new look etc…”. Shortly afterwards I get
“An error that has been encountered that prevents setup from continuing ”,
Again the screen freezes so I need to unplug the machine.

I looked at the difference config and ini files, and compared the Windows dir... Read more

i can setup my d-link 604 wired router with no probs...but after i have done that then i need to do something in the windows control panel under the network connections icon. i have no clue what to do there to complete the final step in networking my 2 machines. some nfo: 2 new machines with ethernet cards. one is xp home and the other is xp pro. all i want to do is make those 2 machines use the same cable connection...i dont want ics or print/file sharing. i have been told to set up the router then power cycle the devices and magically the 2 machines will begin working. but i refuse to fall into that lame trap. i do format approx every 3-4 months so i will need to know how to do this so i can recover from that activity. each machine has a network connection from its previous service - do i delete this - do i create a new one -must i disable/delete/leave alone original connection icon ??? these are the many questions that i have and i have googled this and can not find any nfo as to what to do, on the windows side, after the router is setup. help, i have been trying to figure this out for approx 2 months and my hardware will be obsolete before i get it, so i appeal for help, mahalo and aloha.

The code below will do the following if you have a table set up in WORD:
1. Sequence down a column of cells one after another while:
2. being given the choice to embed a selectable pdf file from a File Open dialog popup after which
3. the embedded object is displayed as a icon ( icon set always same set in code)
4. goes to next lower cell and repeats from step 2
5. keeps doing this until you click Cancel in the File Open dialog box

My question is how do I make the icon conform a set size after it is embedded? Right now I have to go back and resize all the icons after I finish the embedding. I think the trick is to use a 'With' loop but haven't figured it out yet. Here's the code. Thanks for your help:

Sub EmbedPDFAndDisplayIcon()
Dim d As Dialog
Dim r As Word.Range
Dim p As Object
Dim vrtSelectedItem As Variant
For Each r In ActiveDocument.StoryRanges
Dim fd As FileDialog(msoFileDialogOpen)
ActiveWindow.ScrollIntoView Selection.Range, True
Set fd = Application.FileDialog(msoFileDialogOpen)
With fd
If .Show = -1 Then
For Each vrtSelectedItem In .SelectedItems
Selection.InlineShapes.AddOLEObject ClassType:="AcroExch.Document", _
FileName:=vrtSelectedItem _
, LinkToFile:=False, DisplayAsIcon:=True, IconFileName:= _
