Q: converting from metric to us imperial measurement system

Hi,
I have both Windows XP and Office XP. Currently, I'm working on a Word document in which I need to set the margins all around to 1.5". My software, however, is only giving me measurements in cm.
I tried, following some advice, to go into my computer's control panel to regional settings, and then to the numbers tab. Unfortunately, my computer has no numbers tab. It only had a general, languages and advanced tab.

Any help would be appreciated.
Thank you.

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.)

Hi all,

I have 2 adapter, same model same speed. When I use "route print" command to check the table, they are the same metric.

I need to use the designated adapter to connect a server. How can I make sure this adapter is higher priority in the route table. 
Remark: This PC is not allow to set the route table. I have to use the automatic metric algorithm.

Hello,

Lately, I've noticed all of my applications (Word, Photoshop, etc.) use the metric system of measurement. I'm not sure why this started, but I'd like it to go back to the imperial system. Do you know how I can change this default setting? Thanks!

Chris

A:Metric system!

I don't know about Photoshop, but in Word you can go to

Tools -> Options -> General tab and check that the measurement units are in inches

Entering "measurement" in Windows Help gained this information:

To change the way your computer displays numbers
Open Regional and Language Options in Control Panel.
On the Regional Options tab, under Standards and formats, click Customize.
On the Numbers tab, specify any changes you want to make.
Among items you can change are the decimal symbol and list separator, the format used for negative numbers and leading zeros, and the measurement system (U.S. or metric).

Note

To open Regional and Language Options, click Start, click Control Panel, and then double-click Regional and Language Options.

I use Adobe Acrobat Pro version 8 at work, which is fine. We use it for general mark up, measurement, so on, so forth. At home I have Acrobat Pro Version 9. I cant get 8, as we have no more licences for 8, and our wonderful IT department decided to buy licences for 9, as it MUST be better, without asking anyone.

Problem- If I measure in 9, I can set scale fine, but if I close the measurement for any reason, the scale defaults to default. This is annoying to say the least, when I have a lot of measuring to do in different areas. Anyone know how I can get this to set a scale and keep it? Its 2D measuring.

Thanks

I even have an image file and when you run that it does the same thing and there is nothing wrong with the disk, no scratches. I'd really appreciate help with this.

Hello,

I recently switched from DSL to Charter Cable. Charter represents up to 3Mbps .

I went to toast and ran 10 tests over 1.5 minutes and came up with an average speed of 2629Kb. Toast

Is this acceptable?

One of my concerns is that I notice that I generally get a much slower speed when actually DL'ing. Often as low as 50Kb.

Is the slowness of that simply due to the server on the other end?

After many months of fine help from people on tsg forums, i have realised that this computer is clunking towards a halt and have ordered a new one from dell. The realisation that the average ipod has 10x the hard drive of my pc helped, but the local company offering broadband for less than my dial up means i am switching at the end of the month and want a fresh start.

I do have a modest interest in games when i have the time though. I realise this machine is not for high end gaming, however i do not want to run the very latest games with all the graphics maxed out.

The only thing i am concerned about is the graphics card. I couldnt find many reviews googling the model although those i did find were not all together complimentary. Adding £250 to the price for a 256mb nvidia card seemed VERY pricey. To get to the point, would i be able to play rome:total war or imperial glory at a reasonable level with this system or would i need a new gfx card?

I am lucky enough to use Acrobat 8 at work mostly, but due to IT upgrades (it would be nice if they asked us what we wanted, just for once) I am using 9 more.
Problem is that I need to do a lot of measuring, both linear and area, and 9 will not keep the values I use. as an example, I bring up measure tool, do a few areas, then need to use a different tool, go back to measure and the scale has reset to 1:1. After the first 20 or 40 times it gets annoying. Acrobat 8 kept the scale as long as a document was open, is there any way to od this in 9? Tried the normal measure options, and have not managed to find it yet.

Trying to investigate Time to Ready from a standby (also called S3 time).

The question I have is why when you go from a Standby to Ready, the time it takes for the 1st and/or 2nd pass of this measurement (from when the power button is pressed till when the windows taskbar appears) is usually longer on the 1st & 2nd runs compared to the later runs. I know this involves paging data from the disc, which may need to be reread during those first few attempts. I am looking for any good documentation that explains this in detail. Would appreciate any pointers as to where to look.

3D Scanning / wide range time of flight measurement

Hello everybody,

I am currently involved in a new technology that captures environments and creates 3D models thereof. In particular, the technology offers the following cool benefits:

- Captures large areas of up to 32x32ft (or 10x10m)
- Offers high precision of 0.03" (or 1mm)
- Detects motions in real-time with up to 1000fps (Response time: 1ms)
- Offers high resolution of 640x480 (VGA)
- Works independent of light (both bright and dark light conditions)
- Is resistent to interference due to HDDM (High Definition Distance Measurement)
- Is portable (0.8"x0.8")
- Consumes low power (50mW-500mW)
- Captures an angle of 180°; when combining two modules 360° would be possible.

Do you have any application fields in mind?
We would be highly interested in applications or problems with focus on a rather large group of users.

Thank you in advance for your support!

Hi,

I'm looking for an solution for an random issue on my clients computers (Windows 7 or 10).
They connected to an business vpn with Juniper network connect.
As usual, to be sure the computer use the vpn network to make dns reolution etc... the virtual network card created by juniper is using metric 1 to have the top priority.
That's working well since 1 or 2 years.
For an unknown reason When they connect to the vpn some computers keep the internet gateway instead of using the one provided by juniper vpn...
The solution we've found is to edit the juniper metric from 1 to 2 and after ipconfig /flushdns the route table is using the vpn gateway..the pb is, juniper create an virtual card each connections, so it is deleted when the users disconnect his vpn session.
I don't know why but the computers seems not update the route table when connecting to vpn..
We tried :
 - changing from ethernet to wireless or 3G/4G internet source
 - change the network card order in advanced parameters from the networking center..
 - route -f is not workingg

Do you have any idea..?

10.0.2.15:3389, the other is in bridge mode which IP is 192.168.6.100, my pc is 192.168.6.220, In the vm, "route print" shows two default gateway as below:

Situation:

I have external drives greater than 3+ TB in size with data I wish to keep. Because they were external and using their own firmware/controller, they were using MBR as you may know. I have since ripped them out and placed them in my rig for purposes of better speed and heat dissipation. Of course, windows will not show these drives in explorer alone. I have read up on using the mini tool PA in order to convert. Seems simple, but when doing so (selecting drive and then selecting/applying convert to GPT) and then even rebooting, there is no change, not showing in explorer. These drives were one disk, not partitioned previously or at all. What simple step am I missing here? I would appreciate a point in the right direction. Because of the reason of data, I have been apt to go ahead and "try" anything further before seeking any further help.

Let me itterate that this is not an issue of anything being corrupted by a power failure or otherwise. If I stick the drive back onto the external controller, while MBR, it appears and works, no problem (thats after i toggle back to MBR from GPT convert, of cou... Read more

Hey guys,
I am using a 3G modem (Virgin Mobile MC760). In short; I have 2 connections; 1 is wired ethernet and the other is this 3G modem. I want to be able to use the 3G modem in a guest Vmware system while still using my regular ethernet for everything else in the host. (Unfortunately this modem doesn't work in VM so I am stuck having 2 internet connections in Win7 and trying to route this).

I have read up on metric values but heres the problem. I set the ethernet for a metric value of 1 and the 3g connection as 9999, ethernet alone works fine, as soon as I connect the 3g modem it takes priority and changes my metric value of the ethernet higher and creates a 0.0.0.0 default gateway, when my ethernet is 192.168.1.1. The only way around this is if I disconnect my ethernet and reconnect it, it will then take priority and have both be connected and use ethernet.

Is there any solution to this?

I looked forward to opening 'publisher' for the first time to see if I could produce an item to fit into a magazine/newspaper. I made my initial box-size and then discovered that IT'S ALL IN IMPERIAL! Considering that most of the people in the world use Metric and don't mess up our engineering and space stations by making stuff in imperial, why would Microsoft imagine that imperial works here. We went Metric in '71... Put it in Metric and let the yanks find the box marked 'Imperial'...
Anyhoo, I'm looking for the box to tick to choose to have the scales in Metric please, as I can't find it simply. Please may someone tell me...?

A:Changing scales to metric? (Publisher, PPT, etc...)

The horizontal and vertical rulers in Microsoft Publisher 2007 can be changed to display a different type of measurement unit. By default, the rulers in Publisher display inches, but you can change them to a variety of other measurement units.
For microsoft Publisher 2007.

Instructions

1 Once you're in your document, choose the "Tools" menu, and click "Options" to open the "Options" dialog box.2 Select the "General" tab at the top of the "Options" dialog box, if necessary, to display the basic settings for Microsoft Publisher.3 Click the arrow to display the "Measurement units" drop-down list from the "Options" dialog box. These are the different types of measurements you can display on the Publisher rulers. Choose the measurement you want from choices that include inches, centimeters, picas, points or pixels.4 Click the "OK" button to close the "Options" dialog box and return to your Publisher document. Your rulers will display with the measurement you picked. Use the same process to switch back to the original measurement or to choose a new unit of measurement.

A:problem with windows 7 not using correct metric

Sounds quite bizzare, Windows assigns a lower metric to the gateway it can communicate the fastest with, but in this case both have been assigned 20.
If you've manually assigned a gateway and metric you should see that in the list of persistent routes.

The processor was at 100% on all cores.

Tj Max is 70*c the temps were at 73. I was about to close some programs but wasn't able to in time.

A:System shutdown while converting audio

Hi jago86.
Probably no damage this time if the system has booted OK. Check out the heatsink on the CPU for dust which may be compromising the cooling. If the temps are still high nearly causing thermal shut down it may be time for an after market cooler to keep those temps below 50C to give you some headroom.

Currently partition D: is set as the primary parition and is attributed as System.

Parition C: used to be primary and is attributed as Boot.
Additional Info:
OS - Win XP Home Edition

As far as I'm concerned, I didn't convert anything; at least not intentionally.

I have a couple of questions regarding this matter:
1 - Does the pc boot from D: or C: with the current settings?

2 - I'd like to change the primary partition back to C:, will that attribute it back as System?

3 - Assuming conversion, will partition C: still be attributed as Boot and will the PC still load from it?

4 - Why/How could this have happened in the first place?

I attached a print screen for anyone who needs a clearer picture of this unpleasant condition.

Thanks in advance

A:Converting Paritions [C: (Boot) and D: (System)]

C: drive is part of an Extended Partition noted by a Dark Green Border. There is no easy way to set this back the way it was. How this happened I can't tell you. I would backup all the files you want to keep to a USB HDD. the best thing to do, would be to delete both partitions, leave the PQService Partitioin and reboot the computer and Run the System Recovery from that partition. By pressing Alt and F10 at the same time at bootup. And restore the computer to Factory Settings. Acer System Recovery Partition Hotkey & Instructions (eRecovery)
You can also try to use a third party utility like Easeus Magic Partition Manager, and convert the Extended Partition to a Primary Partition. And then run do the Factory Restore.

I can no longer convert ANY video file type (AVI, MPG) and burn a DVD from it. When I try, one of three things typically happens;
1) The program gives an error message like 'Instruction at "0x004647..." referenced memory at "0x0766.....". The memory could not be "read"'. Microsoft recommends updating to the latest service pack. I'm running Win2000 service pk.4, all updated.
2) Strangely programs not only stop, but also stop running AND close by themselves. I've run antivirus and anti-spyware programs... no fix.
3) Most often the computer just freezes badly; often the motherboard reset button doesn't even do the job and I have to power off completely.

These problems happen with a number of software packages including Cucusoft AVI Converter Pro, 1st Video Converter, NeroVision Express, AVI to DVD Converter (actual name) and others.

I even reinstalled Windows 2000.... still no fix.

I recently installed a new motherboard, CPU and memory and I suspect one or more to the culprit. I've tested the memory, it's ok. The system also passes all tests using cpu utilities (CPU Burn-IN & CPU Stability Test)

I'm freakin' out here!! Does anyone have any experience with this? A verified solution would be greatly appreciated.

My PC keeps rebooting after 5 minutes of converitng an Avi file to the Dvd format. I have tried WinAvi, Cucusoft, dvdSanta, and VSO Divxtodvd converters. I can see the converter doing it's job via the preview window and after about 5 minutes and with no warning, the computer shuts off and reboots.
I am running Windows XP professional on my PC. Shutting down all applications including antivirus programs does not help. The event viewer does not log in any errors! No idea what's causing this problem.
Any help in resolving this issue is deeply appreciated.
Thanks!

I need to mount a 500 GB 2.5" hard drive in a HP Prodesk 600 G1 SFF and I do not have any additional M3 metric isolation mounting guide screws.  The service manual states that these can be ordered fro HP.  Does anyone know where on HP's site these can be found?

Living in France you cannot avoid a French keyboard, they're everywhere. So I learned using the azerty, but stuck to English.

This is of course beyond the people designing Windows.

So how can I have Windows 8 speaking English, but using French options for the rest (?, keyboard, date format, metric)?

And of course, ALSO WITH METRO please. It seems independent of the "real" OS.

Thanks in advance

A:French Keyboard, €, metric and date with English speak W8

A lot of these changes can be made through the Control Panel > Clock, Language and Region
If it affects Metro, I do not know.

When ever I go to log on to my Dell Latitude E7440 with windows 7 Professional x64 I get an error screen saying that windows could not find a bio metric device. This is true because my computer does not have a fingerprint reader on it. I was wondering if anyone could help me so i don't have to sit through my computer looking for the device and not finding it every time I go to log in. TIA

Hi Welcome to Seven Forums .. Strange issue you seem to have ...

Reading the System Specs for your Laptop from the Link below ..

Seems some Models do have the Fingerprint Reader ...

Could it be some Software you have Installed from the Dell Website ..

That is causing this message ? ...

The company I work for has recently gotten a new Internet connection at their farm across the street. Originally the time clock was placed there and monitored over the LAN on the computer that I am at right now. Now that there is a new connection I need to know how to connect the time clock on the other internet connection to this PC. Networking has never been my strong suit. any help would be appreciated!

-Bumbers

P.S. The time Clock is an anviz EP300 and the PC is running windows 8.1
 

A:Solved: Connect Bio-metric time clock to another network?

Hi Bumbers, and welcome to TSG.

Does the new connection at the other building have at least one static public IP address? If not, things may get a bit more complicated.

Beyond that, you will need to set up whatever modems and routers are being used across the street to port forward from the Internet public IP address to the private IP address of the time clock on the LAN. Having the time clock use a static IP address on the LAN, rather than get its IP address via DHCP would also simplify things.

It appeared to me that only registered users on the Anviz web site can download product manuals. I have no idea if or how the time clock can be properly configured to use a static IP address, the port numbers used, or the type of security it offers. Once you have port forwarding configured, the time clock will be exposed to attacks from the Internet.

After you have everything configured at the other location, you should be able to use the public IP address of the other location to access the clock from your location.

Hi, I'm new to this forum, and hope to solve my problem with some expert guidance.

The problems started with me trying to create a shared file in onenote, which could be edited and viewed by all users of my computer. In the UAC, it asked me about some permission about "INTERACTIVE" and "SERVICE", if I remember right. I allowed it to do so, and hoped to set up the notebook in the public documents folder.

But, since then, the libraries (Documents, music, etc) reported being "Unresponsive" when I clicked on "Includes: 2 locations".


Also, the "See more results" link in the start menu reports an error as in the picture:



I recently installed Autocad Architecture Metric (US) in my computer, and then tried opening it in Guest account, but it just shows the following:


Then:



Then it shows:



And then it disappears, and nothing happens. I'm unable to open the software even when I applied read&exec permissions for guest in the folder containing the program. Path: C:\Program Files\Autodesk\AutoCAD Architecture 2011 (The folder containing the program)... (acad.exe)

All the other apps like chrome, pdf, etc are running without any problem, as this problem arose after their installation.

Also, please tell me why this app runs in guest account only if I select "Run as administrator". Other standard accounts are fine. Thanks!

Hi hope you can help me?

I have had this computer for 3 years now and had no problems with it until just lately, it is Windows XP SP2, I have Nero and ConvertX2DVD installed on my computer and use these on a regular basis, but for the last couple of weeks once the converting process starts on these programmes the computer crashes, the screen stays on but the mouse cursor is stuck in the same position and i have to mannually restart the computer by pressing the on switch in for a few seconds. Once the system restarts everything works fine until i try to use the vide converting software. I have uninstalled the Programms and reinstalled to see it this would help me to no avail, i have ran registry cleaning software to no avail and regulary scan my computer for viruses using McAfee and this is always up to date.

I have tried everything i know and have not found the answer please somebody help.

Thanks in advance.
