Preferred Solution: not able to chat

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.)

A: not able to chat

Is that a java related problem? You might want to reinstall the java platform, and see if that helps.

I currently use a program I use to play Spades called Paradise Chat Online (http://www.pcospades.com)
In order to run the program in Windows 7, which I did previously, you had to change compatibility to Win XP (SP 2) and run as an Administrator. I have tried that with this program, and Windows 8 will not load it. It gives me a Runtime error before the log in screen.

Any ideas on what I can do to run the program?

I have a chat headset plugged into my wireless Xbox One controller. With Steam and Windows settings, how can I have game chat go to the headset while game audio goes to speakers?

A:chat headset for chat & game audio through speakers

'normally' , for that sort of thing , IF it shows up as an audio device under 'playback devices', you make your game speakers the 'default' device and your headset the 'default communications device'.

Depends if the chat headset shows up in the list though.

Vypress Chat (http://www.vypress.com/download/)

I want to write a similar chat program which I intend to keep as a freeware. I have designed a prototype but it works between only two computers (client/server). Like vypress I don't want to maintain any server.

I hope for an expert's review about the methods underlying vypress chat program which are used to achive the desired behavior. Issues like maintaining a server-free user list, broadcasting messages, support for IPX etc. (please explain how a similar program should work, the concepts I mean)

I hope I'm posting in the correct forum.

A friend has discovered that all of his MSN Messenger chat conversations are being saved into a folder. He does not want this to happen. I suggested he go to tools>options>messages tab, then uncheck the box where it says "automatically keep a history of my conversations." He said the box is not checked. However after a conversation, he signs out of Messenger, then finds the entire chat recorded in a folder in his documents. It is a shared computer, so someone else has possibly created this folder? How can he stop automatic recording of all chats? Would deleting the folder work, since then the conversations would have no place to be recorded?

Thanks in advance.

Now, what you could do, is delete the link that you may have in your bookmarks, and the cookie for that room.

To find that cookie, go to Find Files, and type cookie.

It should be in c:\windows\cookies

Them, just delete that cookie, and see if you can get in again.

A friend has asked me about using a chat forum . He has Windows XP Home and was wondering if any files ( record of his conversations ) are stored somewhere on his computer that he might be able to view later .
 

A:XP and Chat

You say Chat forum, but do you mean a forum like this, where you post and someone replies later on?

Or do you mean an actual chat program like Yahoo chat or IRC?

if you mean forum, then the answer is no, the forum info is not stored on your PC.

If you mean chat program, then it depends very much on the Program, I dont know about Yahoo or other chats, but IRC (through mIRC) does have the option to log conversations, but I dont think it is switch on by default.

Hello all. I have a question. I was wondering where I could get a good chat program for my website that is written in PHP, Perl, Java, etc.

It needs to have admin features like kick and ban and moderators, and I would like the graphical interface to be nice too.

Currently I am running phpMyChat, and it's ok...I don't care for the interface or the admin having to use commands to kick people, etc.

What I am really looking for is a way to host an event. On my website I am going to have a singer come on and answer questions. I don't want people to blurt out and talk all in the room. I want them to submit their questions to me before the chat (which I can do via a webform) and then I will ask the artist the questions, and the artist will answer. Basically, I don't want anyone to be able to talk except me and the artist (I want the other people to spectate).

Is this possible? And what program/script (free) would I need to do this?
Also, would it be possible for me to host a channel on an IRC network and then devoice everyone except me and the guest? Then how would I get that into a webchat?

Thanks A Lot All! This site is great!

A:Chat Scripts!

A quick Google search for "Chatroom Scripts" comes up with http://simplythebest.net/cgiscripts/chat.html as a top result. The site contains links to downloads, and although I've only skimmed the page, I did note that most of them are pretty feature packed, so one should cater for what you need. Most of them are CGI/Perl scripts.

Hope that helps.

Edit: I didn't actually notice, but you will have to pay for some of these apps.

If you want, you might be able to edit you're existing chatroom's script; any relatively decent HTML editor should have some functionality for CGI languages. It isn't all that complicated (alledgedly ). Try searching Google for a few tutorials if you're not sure.
