"Browse For Folder" during various software installation doesn't work.

Q: "Browse For Folder" during various software installation doesn't work.

Hi all,

I noticed a really annoying issue on my machine.

When installing various software, when it asks me if I want to customise location, when I click on the "browse" button, it either doesn't do anything or in some cases it will open "Browser For Folder" window, but it will only show my Desktop>Usename folder, nothing else.

Software like K-Lite Codec pack will work fine as in I can change the installation location, but other software wont work :/

I do have mapped network drives if it makes any difference.

Any help would be much appreciated!

Preferred Solution: "Browse For Folder" during various software installation doesn't work.

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.)

so I just got a refurbished Acer laptop and am trying to install Super Anti-Spyware, but when I try to change the folder it installs to, the Browse for Folder window shows up blank.

(attached pic)

I searched different forums for help on this, and have already tried the command prompt solutions discussed in this thread:
"Browse for Folder" dialogs appear blank

to no avail

running /sfc scannow found a few problems and fixed them but even after I restarted the Browse for folder still shows up blank

Does anyone have any additional suggestions / ways you fixed this problem if you had it?

thanks a bunch

A:"Browse for Folder" doesn't show anything / is blank when installing

Welcome to Seven Forums 99problemswithw. Did you register both the 32 bit and 64 bit versions? If just the 32 bit in my suggestion in the other thread you referred to, then try this as well:

Start> Type cmd in search box> right click on cmd.exe in results above> click on Run as Administrator

When command prompt opens, type the following (notice the space) :

regsvr32 %windir%\syswow64\shdocvw.dll

Press Enter

regsvr32 %windir%\syswow64\browseui.dll

Press Enter

Reboot and see if problem is fixed.

Hi guys, just intalled Win 7 after having it some time and I love it. I usually clean out my "sample pictures, music and videos" up after installation. This may or may not have something to do with my minor annoyance. If I go to my user profile and I wish to change my picture, the "browse for more pictures..." link does nothing when I click to it. I dont know if it's trying to reference that folder. I put a new folder and named it sample pictures in C:Users/public/public pictures but still no dice. Any idea how to replace them? fix windows or find them on the DVD and place them back in their appropriate place? I should probably familiarize myself a little more with the OS before I start deleting folders and what not..
Anyway, any help will be greatly appreciated.
Best regards.

When I open, save or whatever, with any software like Photoshop, Dreamweaver etc, the files are not arranged by name like they should be.

I select arrange by name and they do. But next time I go to open something, they are all over the place again.

This came about when I turned XP's indexing off. (I turned it back on but it didn't fic the prob.)

I have tried everything to no avail.

Explorer works fine. Everything is arranged how I want. Word, Exel etc are OK. Just other vendors software is where the problem occurs.

Anyone know a fix for this perplexing problem?

Thanks.

This is a question for information about why my networking problem finally was resolved.
I have four PC?s on my network; one Windows 7 and three Windows XP. The Windows 7 PC always sees all three of the other computers. However the Windows XP computers sometimes don?t see the other XP computers when I press ?My Network Places.? Quite by accident I discovered that if I press ?View Workgroup Computers? then ALL the other PC?s in the network DO show up. Furthermore, if I click through "View Workgroup Computers" and access/edit a file on one of the other computers, then this computer will ALSO show up in ?My Network Places.? This behavior seems to be quite consistent and works every time I have tried it. Apparently, this is a workaround to the long vexing problem of why my networked PC?s sometimes don?t show up under ?My Network Places.?

My question: why does ?View Workgroup Computers? apparently always show all the networked PC?s, when ?My Network Places? does so only intermittently or sometimes not at all?

Thanks for any response.

I am having a problem with my system no displaying any type of directory listing when I open any type of "Browse for folder" prompt.

I instaleld my iPod today, yay!

Anyways I'll sum up what's going on. I chose an option in iTunes that was "Add Folder to Library" and got a folder (c:/music) with 500+ songs to go into the library. Now, I ripped some more music off a cd into a folder inside said folder. The new songs wouldn't show up on in iTunes so I went back and choose "Add Folder to Library" and iTunes crashed. I then tried to get winamp to open the folder with "Add folder to playlist" and winamp too crashed.

The odd thing is if I select "Add file to library/playlist" the programs don't crash. I also tried using some other programs and regardless of what type of program it is everytime I browse folders the programs will crash. And everytime I browse files it won't. What's going on?

Help me please!

Hello Tech Support Members!

When required to browse for a folder on my computer in order to select a folder location, the selection area between "Browse for Folder:" and the "OK" button does not appear. All that is there is the gray background of the dialog box.

The dialog, in detail, is not when saving or opening a file such as a Word document, but rather the dialog that appears when you need to select a folder, such as when a program would ask you to choose a folder that contains pictures for that program to display.

Here is a screenshot of the dialog I am inquiring about.

Any assistance would be greatly appreciated.

A:"Browse for Folder" Navigation Area Gone

I've never used the application in question, but if I had to guess I would assume that it's blank because you may never have set a default directory, so it doesn't know where to start in the hierchial tree view.

Try going into settings and changing/setting your photo folder. If it's already set, click "Make New Folder" to see what happens.

the folder looks like a normal folder... but i can't delete it !!!


I've tried CheckDisk and rebooting...

A:I can't delete a folder on the desktop because "the folder doesn't exist"

Solution:

open Command Prompt (CMD) via RUN

then use DIR /X to show the non-8dot3 file names...

then either rename or delete the folder using dos commands and the short 8letter name.

Hi,

I've got this very annoying problem.


Let's take ApexDC++, for example. When selecting more than one file and clicking Download to=> Browse, it doesn't autoscroll to the "Downloads" folder like it did in XP. I've attached 2 pictures to understand what I'm trying to say.

The first one(Capture1) shows the window that would appear in Win7, no autoscroll to the Downloads folder, and the second one(Capture2) shows how it would appear in WinXP, with autoscroll to the Downloads folder. This is important when downloading many files into different subfolders located in Downloads folder. It takes less time when you have the Downloads folder right in your face.

For example, I like to download pictures, and many of them have the same name, so I'd have to download them in different subfolders. Now I have to scroll myself everytime.


This problem isn't related to ApexDC++, it is caused by Win7, other software behave like this, too.
DoubleKiller and probably any other software where you'd have to browse to an implicit folder would behave like this.

And, of course, these things don't happen in WinXP.

Is it an option in Win7, or is it a bug?
Does anyone know how to fix this?






Regards,
Nick

A:Doesn't Win7 have autoscroll on "Select folder" boxes?

Hmmmm, never noticed that. It is kind of funky. As a programmer I always hated the "browse for folder" dialog. The way to do it would be to subclass the File Open Dialog, but MS deliberately sealed it so we can't just add onto it and use it. Go figure.

Anyway, for a work-around. Even though the selected folder is out of view, if it has subfolders, hitting the right arrow key will open them under the selected folder and move the focus there. Easier than scrolling down.

If I am logging in without setting password, and I am logging in network with "Public" profile, then will any other user, who can see my computer, be able to enter my computer and check the contents on my computer ?

I am connecting to a network and there are 6 other users connected to this network. In the set network location window, if I select the netwoek as "Home", does it mean that other 6 users will not be able to see my computer on network and if I use "Public", then all other six users will be able to see my computer on network ?

My main folder on my desk computer is "Steve"
On my laptop it is "Albert"

When I make a folder pair to sync Steve with Albert it doesn't work. There's a
ga-zillion "Access Denied" errors. Both folders are definately SHARED.
On my Desk computer, "USERS" is shared, and under that "Steve" is shared. Same for the laptop with "Users" and "Albert".

In the directory: COMPUTER / OS (C) / USERS /

"USERS" has two little heads on the icon.
and under it, both "PUBLIC" AND "STEVE" also have two little heads.

Even so, I have clicked SHARE / ADVANCED SHARING / SHARE THIS FOLDER a dozen times, even though it already says "Steve shared" (Same with Albert)

But when I pair up the individual subfolders, ie: "Contacts, Desktop, Documents, . . . etc.", they all work like a charm. So I can get the program to work just fine with the 11 subfolder pairs, but I'd like to do it with just the one main folder.

I am now cleaning up my D: drive to get rid of all the Vista files which I don't need any more, and I have stumbled over "System volume information" folder. This folder was last modified at the date I installed Windows 7 (5 days ago). Can I just remove this folder without any repercussion?

A:"System volume information" folder on my old Vista installation

It's actually a part of System Restore; the tool that allows you to set points in time to roll back your computer. The System Volume Information folder is where OS stores these points and associated information that makes them accessible.
If you're not using System Restore feature, you can delete it. I recommend you to keep it untouched.

This has been happening the majority of the time for the last week or so. I've scanned for viruses, spyware, etc., but that isn't the problem. Whenever I try to save as, nothing happens. The hour glass comes up for about a half a second and then nothing happens. The same when I try to click browse or when I try to open a file, like pictures. This has never happened before except the last few days.

I hope someone can help. Thank you.

Whenever I perform a "Save As..." or a "Save File" (e.g. with an email attachment), the pop-up save menu always defaults to NOT displaying the navigation pane(s) showing the existing folders/files in the target folder - see thumbnail below left.

To view the folder tree and folder/file list (see thumbnail below right), you have to click on the "Browse Folders" button at the bottom left.

Is there a registry hack or other setting that will reverse this setting for me?

P.S. This problem appears to occur when the application uses the standard Win7 explorer for the save - when using Photoshop, for example, it happily displays the folders and images etc.

A:How to default to "Browse Folders" on "Save as.."

Which version of Internet Explorer do you have? Is it 8, 9, or 10? I only have 8 and I didn't see any way of changing this in there and mine does not do what yours does, so I'm thinking that you have either 9 or 10. If you do, then I will install the version you have and take a look.

You see, this kind of thing can be changed in other browsers like Firefox, and it has been possible for as long as I can remember (several years).

My Win 7x64 desktop was off for several days, with the console unplugged. Upon first start up today, I was prompted to update the AMD driver to Catalyist 12.10, which I did. It seemed to have an effect on another app that I wanted to reverse, so I ran System Restore to right before the computer was last shut down. It returned an error message, and again after a normal reboot: It read that System Restore didn't complete running. "The data is invalid (0x8007000D)." Running System Restore to later time points got the same result.

Later, I tried a cold boot into System Repair, F8 (nothing found). The System Restore error message now was as follows:

"rstrui.exe - Application error
The instruction at 0xfb30584d referenced memory at
0x00000008. The memory could not be read."

I did a google search on rstrui.exe error, but didn't find a lot and so far none of it has worked. The last system image backup before today was two weeks ago, so that's not a welcome option. Any ideas what the problem might be and how to get Sys Restore going again? Thanks,

A:System Restore doesn't work: "rstrui.exe - application error"

By chance, do you have Agnitum Outpost firewall on your machine? Other forum threads indicate this could cause problems for system restore. The recommended solution was to disable a function called Self Protection.

You could also see if there are any damaged or corrupt system files by running a system file checker scan from and elevated command prompt (option two.) If problems are found run the scan 3 times and reboot your computer after each scan.

I am new here. At first a happy new year to everybody.

Yesterday I bought the boxed version of True Image 7.0 and installed it. During the installing I also made boot disks as well as as a boot cd, both in the "complete" version. After that I tried to boot from the disks and also from the cd (of course changed the bios to boot from cdrom). Both didn't work ! My computer booted and I did get the start screen from Acronis but after that it said: "Loading Acronis, please wait" , with the disks as well as with the cd. After that nothing happened anymore, even after 10 minutes.
I made a new boot cd but this time a "safe" version and that DID work. I assume however that, because there are no usb drivers etc. included, you can't use it with an external usb drive or so.
Does anyone here have the same experience or a clue to solve it ? I already emailed Acronis, but didn't get a reply yet (probably because it's New Year ?)
Thanks in advance.

I MEAN U CANNOT ASK SOMEONE TO UPGRADE his OPERATING SYSTEM AT THE EXPENSE OF CHANGING HIS HARDWARES.

THANK YOU.

It is a driver issue. I suggest that you download the driver from HP website, remove the existed driver and install the new downloaded driver.

Installed Publisher 2003 on new windows 7 computer and noticed that the "fill" command would only fill in white. Went to the "Paint" program that came installed on the computer and the same thing was true. Should I upgrade to Publisher 2007? If "Paint" doesn't work, why would an upgrade to Publisher 2007 work?

A:Paint, Publisher "fill" command doesn't work

Hello Vrnuta, welcome to the Seven Forums.

By default the fill color (color 2) in both Paint and Publisher is white. Are you sure you remembered to change it to color you want to use?

Whenever I try to open a file with a program such as Winamp, the programs now "arranges the icons" in some funky random arrangement instead of arranging them by name (or by type, or modified) or whichever order I had preset. When I tell it to "arrange icons by" name or whatever other options, it arranges them....until I try to open something else. Then it's back to the funky random arrangement.

This only happens when trying to access a file from a different program. When I access the folder through Windows, it remembers the arrangement perfectly. Any clue as to what's going on here?

Any help is greatly appreciated!

We've having problems getting the "Out of the Office" function to work. Well, it works just fine internally, but if someone outside our company sends any of our users that has "out of the office" function enabled an email he/she won't recieve the OOTO message.. It works just fine internally (ie I send a mail to another colleague that is away).

Could it be some setting on the Exchange server I've not discovered/I've overlooked?

Hi,

I had an issue with the general user folder name, which was shown as "Alex_000".
Although this was a cosmetic issue only, I wanted to change this to "Alex".
I successfully managed this by changing about 50 entries in the registry (via regedit).

So fine so good.



Now I found out that there are still some leftovers with "Alex_000" in the Windows system, although I have tried to find every bit and peace, where possible:


When I try to open "Add or Remove Programs" in the Metro surface, I get an error message:


Windows cannot find

'C:\Users\alex_000...\Classic_{a lot of weird numbers and chars}.settingscontent-ms'.
Make sure you typed the name correctly, and then try again.



From another forum topic, i also tried this command via Metro and RUN to see, if the Remove service has a general problem:

C:\WINDOWS\System32\rundll32.exe C:\Windows\System32\shell32.dll,Control_RunDLL "C:\Windows\System32\appwiz.cpl",Add or Remove Programs
--> With this, i can open the Remove service without a problem.


Somewhere in the system, there must still be the Alex_000 info hidden.


How can i find this? (Tried the registry, tried a simple search on C: disc, but without success)

How can I solve this?


Thanks a lot!

Alex

A:"Add or Remove Programs" doesn┤t work anymore (in Metro)

The obvious answer is to change it all back to Alex_000. Renaming a system folder doesn't usually go well.

I've got a weird problem here to report. I'm on a Lenovo N200 laptop running Windows 7 x64. Around half the time, the computer will boot up with the trackpad not responding. During times when this happens, I can look into the device manager and see a "code 10" ("device cannot start") for the trackpad. Restarting the computer fixes the problem.

I've had the problem once or twice over the last few years, but just a few weeks ago, it started happening very regularly (+/- 50% of all startup attempts). I can't recall making any notable changes to the system lately that could cause something like this. When the problem first started, it also affected the display adapter (Windows would start with an extremely low resolution and the graphic card would show a similar fault in the device manager, in addition to the trackpad problem described here), but this has since stopped.

I have tried updating the driver for the trackpad to a newer version, but the problem persists.

Hardware faults were considered, but I was able to successfully boot the computer from a WinPE CD five times in a row with no issues, so it would seem like this is less likely to be a hardware bug.

Any ideas as to where to go from here? I don't want to have to reinstall an otherwise clean and functional operating system for something this trivial.

Just recently I had re-formatted, this being one of the problems. It was fixed, and halleluja! I could restart! w00tzor!

I started installing my software and games, and continued restarting.

The last things I installed:

Soundblaster Live! Value Drivers
Microsoft Intellimouse Explorer Drivers

While installing both of them (From CD, I have two drives), I went into MSconfig and dis-abled the AudioHQ that auto starts, and when both of them finished installing (Well SBLive drivers finished a little early) I hit restart, as prompted by my msconfig.

I was greeted by "Primary Hard Disk 0 not found"

"Strike F1 to retry, F2 to enter setup utility"

I hit retry 3 times, and it didn't work. I went into my BIOS Setup, and it said my Primary Hard Disk is an "unknown" device. When I bootup and go into the menu again, It says its my 60 GB drive, as its supposed to.

What happened?

A little info that may help:

Primary HD with OS and programs installed:

Drive C: 60 GB Drive, 7200 RPM, manufactured by Western Digital

Drive D: 20 GB Drive, I THINK its 7200 RPM, manufactured by Maxtor

Both are formatted as NTFS. My computer was booting just fine before I did the previous actions, is there anything I Can do?

[Edit] I checked the other post with a guy having the same problem, and i just remembered:

The 60 GB WD drive is set as "Master"

And 20 GB Maxtor drive is set as "Slave/Cable select" (One or the other)

A:Help! "Restart" Doesn't work (Hard to explain), WinXP

MSCONFIG would not cause your HD to not be recognised by the BIOS. If your Bios is not seeing the HD there may be a loose wire. Bad cable of the HD may be going bad. Someone made a good point about spinup time in another thread. Myabe the BIOS is not giving the drive ample time to get to speed. If its a newer drive it may be having a problem with the motor. Try downloading Maxtor's HD check utility.

I have a Dell Latitude D830 Laptop

I recently replaced my hard drive (sATA) with a fresh one, loaded with Windows Vista. Before even using anything in Vista, I immediately upgraded to Windows 7 Ultimate, without a hitch.

However, I seem to have lost the ability to select all using CTRL+a; it simply does nothing. Everything else works (ctrl+s, ctrl+x, ctrl+v, ctrl+c).

I cannot remember if it worked for the brief time I had Vista installed before upgrading to 7; it was a relatively short amount of time (like 20-30 minutes), so I don't know if I used CTRL+A then or not.

Any reasons why it won't work anymore, or how I can fix it?

I have four computers running Win10. On two of them the windows "Start" button on the task bar doesn't work. So I can't get to Settings or Apps. I can right click on the Start button and get the "right-click menu". All of the other task bar buttons work.

What's going on with this? It used to work. For a while it didn't work on my laptop, now that is working but on two other desktop computers it doesn't work. All computers have same Win10 version and latest updates (although hardware differs some between them).

Can I add the "Settings" and "All Apps" shortcut I would normally get left-clicking on the Start button to the Start button's "right-click menu"?

Hi All,

Upon trying to install MS Office 2007 from the CD (D: drive), it pauses about 60% of the way and I can hear (and slightly feel) the CD "skipping" making repetitive thud sounds. I have to continually open the CD drive and close it to keep it going, but then installation tops until about 65% where the CD just skips.

I tried moving the contents of the CD onto my C: drive and install from there but that doesn't seem to work correctly.

I don't know why my CD drive is now skipping - this happened only once about 7 months ago when I installed a game - but that was easily fixed by simply reinstalling the 2nd time..

All my movies/dvds/music CD's play fine... so why is it different with this MS Office?

I have a Dell Inspiron 1505 Laptop, using Windows 7.

Do I need new drivers or is it simply a faulty DVD drive? If it's the latter how hard is it to change and do I have to get the specific one for my laptop?

Thanks much and anything is appreciated.
