Preferred Solution: How to install Viber on Windows 10, without a smartphone?

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.)

Recently released Viber desktop for PC is rather disappointing with their support info. The system requirements page has no info on the required hard drive space needed. I am currently installing this app on a lenovo G560 running windows 8 pro x86 and so far over 0.5GB has been downloaded and the installation has not even started. Can someone who has this software inform me on how much HDD space is required for download /installation /running of this application?

From the start of connecting my LG G3 to my Windows 7 pro 64bit computer I could not get windows to recognize the phone. In the device manager I saw a driver named VS985 4G. Querying this driver returned "Windows cannot initialize the driver for this hardware (code 37)".

I deleted the driver and connected the phone again. The system automatically reinstalled the same driver and everything worked again, until the next time I tried to reconnect the phone to upload.

It worked that way for some months, then recently when I tried to delete & reinstall the driver it installed a driver named MTP USB device, returned the dialog "Driver Not Successfully Installed" and the device manager reported "Device cannot start (code 10)".

So I next went to the LG site and manually downloaded the driver I entered as VS985 4G. Installed it and again the device manager identifies it a LGE Android MTP device, with the same code 10 error.

I cannot get past this. I tried a system restore but because of limited restore space I couldn't go back more than 2 weeks, and that didn't help. Solution?

Hi,

I have a handheld scanner /smartphone (Datalogic Memor)  that i want to use. I want to install the driver for this to put the smartphone as a drive in the filesystem. The supplier of the scanner/smartphone  doesn't supply a driver that  is

I've used Windows Mobile Device Center and Synchronisation Center before , and that worked fine. Now i want only to install the driver from the update package  drvupdate-x86.exe.

I don't  get the driver separated from this package unless the fact that i isolated the MSI package out of the driver update package.

When I connect the USB cable to the Bluetooth headset and then to the PC, Windows 7 tries to recognize it to install a driver or something, and then it claims the device has malfunctioned and tosses up the error 43. I tried restarting, uninstalling the unknown device, restarting again and re-connecting, but no such luck. The thing is, the PC still seems to charge the headset perfectly fine, and the headset pairs with my phone without an issue.

I'm not totally annoyed by this issue, I managed to get the headset for 15 dollars on Ebay and so far they work perfectly fine and like I said, they will charge via USB or I can connect my AC adapter and charge them fine that way. Just curious why 7 is trying to install drivers for a headset, it didn't try to do that with my old Skullcandy headset.

I have recently gotten a new Samsung Galaxy S II smartphone. I've never had one before. So, I'm trying to figure out how to use it so that I don't accidentally get charge for something not necessarily bad as much as like "accidentally banging your finger with a hammer". Right now, it appears to automatically access the Wi-Fi when it's in range and I'm installing free apps. Will I need to keep an eye on that so that it doesn't download apps (or additional app data) via a cell tower? (I did find a setting called "Wi-Fi Calling Settings" under which I can select Wi-Fi Prefered, Wi-Fi Only, Cellular Prefered.) There's, also, a gps on mine. I've found Google Maps, Google Latitude, Navigation, and TeleNav GPS Navigating that can use the gps in one way or another. How far into those programs can I use the gps before I start getting charged for data usage? Is there anything else I need to be careful of so that I don't end up surprised at the end of the billing cycle?

I am confused to decide which is better Samsung galaxy s4 or htc one or iphone 5 or xperia z

things want to consider first thing battery backup, then resolution then camera of course which has the best look

read several reviews and so confused please help
 

A:Which is the best smartphone to buy?

The Galaxy S4 is basically equivalent to the HTC One. The HTC One though, has a better camera and has an aluminum shell. The S4 has a more mediocre camera and a plastic shell (cheaper build quality). They both have basically the same screen. I own an iPhone 5 and love it. The OS is just becoming stale though, and Android (on the S4 and HTC One) is more for power users. iOS (iPhone) is geared more toward rookies who dont know what they are doing since it is so simple. I would take the Xperia Z off of your list since it doesnt match up.

Check out TechSpots' reviews on all three phones:
Galaxy S4: http://www.techspot.com/review/664-samsung-galaxy-s4/
HTC One: http://www.techspot.com/products/smartphones/htc-one.87473/ (I cannot find a full review on TS and posting another sites review would be considered kind of bias)

What application are you using to establish the VPN connection? A VPN connection should allow a remote device outside the LAN act as if it was and should be able to access resources limited only to that LAN the same way as if it was connected to it.

Just a couple of questions to help us give you the best support:

What phone are you using and what OS does it have (Android, iOS... etc? )

What VPN application are you using on the server to initiate the remote connection?

What is the OS of the home computer you wish to access and is there a shared folder set? If so what are the sharing permissions applied?

Don't worry if you can't answer all the questions, we will do our best with the information provided

Are these Android phones? If so, your contact info should be synced to your Gmail account. Log into the new phone with the same account and that should be copied over. To move pictures, you'll need to upload them to a service or connect your phone to your computer and copy them over.

If the pictures are important, you should have a backup anyway. A smartphone is just a pocket-sized computer. It can crash, fail, etc. and has the added bonus of being easily lost or dropped.

I just had my hard drive reimaged with Windows 7. When I plug my smartphone into the USB port, I hear the bong/bong that it was plugged in, and I even get the window saying that it's installing drivers. But when I go to Windows Explorer, I don't see it as plugged in. I've tried numerous "solutions" online, but nothing has worked.

I just looked in Device Manager under Universal Serial Bus Controllers, and "Apple Mobile Device USB Driver" is there with a yellow triangle and exclamation mark in it. Although I right-click it and update - or uninstall, then scan for hardware changes - neither works.

How can I get my computer to recognize this smartphone?

Addendum: I deleted everything related to Apple, including Bonjour, Quicktime, and iTunes, then tried to reinstall iTunes since I thought that it would install the necessary drivers. It succeeded until the very end, when I got this error:

The registry settings used by the iTunes drivers for importing and burning CDs and DVDs are missing. This can happen as a result of installing other CD burning software. Please reinstall iTunes.

I'm at a complete loss. Not only does iTunes not install, but my Windows 7 computer doesn't even recognize my smartphone when I plug it in.

Hello, I have an interesting idea, and I am curious if it can be done.

I think it would be pretty cool if I could play one of my PC games on my smart phone. I'm not sure how practical that would be, but none the less I would like to try it. Here are my thoughts on how to accomplish the task:

Input for one, could be accomplished by using a Bluetooth enabled gamepad that pairs with your phone. That way you can go beyond touch screen input for more complex games.

Then there is the small display to consider. While it is ideal for smaller scaled games, it isn't ideal for PC games where they are often very detailed and have complex user interfaces. I thought maybe you could use one of those headsets they use for things like Oculus Rift to narrow in the display. That would make it more ideal.

Now the tricky part, remoting to your PC so you can play the game. From what I understand, remoting is accomplished using RDP, which Windows, Apple and Linux all use. So in theory, you could easily remote to your computer to play a game. You could write a custom application for your smart phone to remote in and send input from the gamepad to your PC.

Now the issue of connectivity. PCs these days can easily render graphics in 1080p, and in some cases 4k. Now over a remote connection (using RDP), I am not sure the protocol can process that kind of data fast enough for consistent frame rates on the client (smart phone). You would likely have to compress the frames for faster process... Read more

I am having an annoying and frequent problem with firefox loading websites using smartphone layout. Roughly 30% of the time it will load a page with full screen width images and text that spans the entire screen.
Reloading will sometimes bring it back to normal browser window display, other times it takes several reloads to get it right.
It's not limited to any particular pages, a page will load perfectly fine once, then the next time it loads up wrong.

I've played with user agents, updated, reloaded, reinstalled firefox and the problem persists, any ideas?

A:Firefox loading like a smartphone

I'd reset the FF User Agent to default and delete the cache, if it still happens even after a force-refresh, look for a Desktop link, there's often one at the bottom of the page.

If it persists and you're sure your User Agent is at default and you're sure aren't blocking correct browser capabilities detection with an extension, report it to the site owners.

Hi,
Here's my problem: I try to assist an old cousin (88) who lives in Israel while her only son lives in the US. She doesn't own a smartphone, just an old fashioned mobile. She owns a laptop and is connected to a wifi network.
I would have liked to activate whatapp on her chrome browser, but since her phone isn't smart enough, there's no way to install whatsapp on it.
Is there a way to "fake" a phone connection, using her mobile phone number, for activation whatsapp web?
Is there any other way I can help her with establishing a whatsapp connection on her laptop?

Given the wide diversity of data connections people get on their smartphones, I was wondering if developers who know they will download apps, images, movies, etc to phones have any guidelines or website forums specifically addressing considerations like:
what's the largest file you should attempt to download?
what considerations are there for servers used for downloading?
Are there various protocols that are better/worse for performing large downloads? or,
do different hosting services use different time-out parameters that would cause large downloads to fail?
I'm OK if you point me elsewhere or engage on one of more of these specific issues.

Acer 5738Z running Win 7 64 bit

New XiaoMi Rednote 3 smartphone

Plug phone into USB the first time and a driver is loaded and everything works fine

Reboot laptop and plug in phone - laptop makes bingbong noise as if it recognises the phone but the phone does not appear in My Computer.

Check Device Manager - the phone is shown but with a warning triangle.

Driver gives the message "Windows cannot initialize the device driver for this hardware. (Code 37)"

The only way to make it work is to uninstall the device and reinstall the driver.

I've tried a motherboard reset to no avail

Guidance welcome
