System Catalog Software

Q: System Catalog Software

There is a particular piece of freeware/shareware out there that will scan your system and catalog exactly what software/hardware is installed. I can not remember the name of it. I am thinking of a particular program, but any will do.

Preferred Solution: System Catalog Software

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
I am searching for catalog software program for organizing images and then saving the catalog program to the CD. The program would be very basic, just for images, with indexing by alphabetical order.The images would each have to have caption and description fields, and be searchable.
I have searched online image galleries, and hot-scripts but all I have found so far are not for searchable catalog on discs, only for websites, and some do not have description fields to include.

Could you advise where I could find an open source program or commercial software program for this purpose.

I was trying to download the latest driver for Realtek HD Audio and saw that the link to do so was a sticky so it must be a popular thing to do. I tried to download the driver in the catalog -- not sure why there are two that are described identically but are different sizes -- and it appeared it was gonna work until I clicked on view basket in order to download the selected driver. There I encounter an error each time I try.

I have used the Microsoft software update catalog before to manually apply updates. I'm pretty sure that I've never had any problem with any of the feature/functionality -- at least I don't remember ever having any. For some reason, while I can browse/search it and select updates to download resulting in the number shown in the catalog being updated,, whenever I click on view basket I get the error shown at the bottom of this post.

Is anybody familiar with this issue and what I need to do to resolve it?

Hi, there!
I was referred to this forum because of the following:
A little while ago, when I was troubleshooting some problems with one of my PCs, I had to delete System .wci catalog. As it turned out (after I figured it out what was causing the problem), the deletion of that catalog was not necessary. Now, I have already
recreated the catalog by looking at my other PCs.  
And the following are directories for the same System .wci catalog that I am trying to exclude:
C:\Documents and Settings\*\Application Data\*
C:\Documents and Settings\*\Local Settings\*

I know a star * means 'all'.
Then, first * in the first directory means what - 'All Users'?
Then, what is the second *? Does it mean I need to simply highlight the whole Application Data directory?
And what do *'s mean in C:\Documents and Settings\*\Local Settings\*  ?
Are they supposed to mean my First_Name Last_Name (if I am the only one user)? Because Local Settings directory is only under my First_Name Last_Name. And then again, what is the meaning of the next *, and where is it?
I hope someone clarifies these questions for me.
Thanks in advance.

I want to add some more fields to the existing XSD file template and then I have

the new fields along with the existing (standard) vendor catalog fields and along 
with that while importing also I have to some more validations and my

I have a program called My DVD Catalog, which is fairly good...especially since it is free, but I'm wondering if there is such a thing as a similar program, that would not only contain pertinent data for inventory purposes, but would also work as a direct means to select a particular video, or videos to play. Not necessarily within that program (which would be nice), but would allow one to select a player for each or all formats?

I do have the videos placed within a nested folder system, which helps some with selection, but it would be nice to have all of the eggs in one basket.

Okay, if no such program as this exists, then how about a video player that has the ability to search for videos and add them to it's own library, like some audio players do.

Most of the images in the catalog appear to be one image on top of a different one. When selecting the image and enlarging it the lower one comes to the front. It is the one with the proper file name and tags. The two are not stacked or versions so cannot be viewed separately. In the editor layers palette the "top" is the only one and is named the background layer. I have tried unsuccesfully to determine if the other image is a hidden layer.

Hello edn3005,

File History saves your files in the Data folder in the selected local or network drive at the location below.

(selected drive)\File History\(user-name)\(computer-name)\Data\C\Users

However, if you go through the process to restore personal files from File History, you will see all the time stamps easier. You don't have to restore them. It just make it easier to see what you have.

Hi,
I have a Sony VAIO laptop that has been giving me problems when trying to connect to the internet. I ran a diagnostic test on it and the response I got back was that there is an issue with a Winsock Provider Catalog. Can anyone tell me how to fix this issue? Lrsealy

A:Winsock Provider Catalog

Hello Irsealy, and welcome to TSF!

You may have ran into something known as 'winsock2 corruption'.

If you have XP with SP2 installed, go to [Start] >>> Run >>> (now type) CMD and press [Enter], or click on [OK].

Now enter the following at this command prompt:

netsh winsock reset catalog

and press the [Enter]-key.

This will reset the Winsock Catalog to its default settings, and should solve the problem.

Please let us know whether it did (there might be another reason why this happened).

I've had a disastrous week here, a little background:

A disk in our array was consistently failing. Dell sent out a replacement disk and the company which we contract to handle our computer stuff came out to replace it. The guy got here and called up Dell Enterprise once he had put the HD in to have them walk him through the steps on configuring it... which had me wondering why I didn't do it myself.

Anyway, the Dell tech had him configure the disks in reverse. He mirrored the new disk to the old one from what I understand, effectively losing all our data for the day. He spent the next four hours rebuilding the new disk. To make a long story short we had to put the old corrupt disk back in and run a recovery on it which brought our files current to last friday (03/03) The last good tape backup we had made was on Tuesday night (03/07). Currently I'm SOL however, because the Veritas Exec software lost the catalog information for the tapes past last Friday and won't catalog Monday or Tuesday's tapes.

The error in the job log reads: "An inconsistency was encountered on the storage media in DELL 1"

Is any of the data on this tape recoverable at all? I don't need a whole lot of it, just the couple projects that were changed & created on those two days (03/06 & 03/07)

Another question I've been forced to wonder is what's the point of this tape backup at all if the backup gets screwy when a harddrive ... Read more

A:Tape Backup won't Catalog

Was the tape catalog on the hard drive and it's corrupt because of that? You should always write the catalog to a tape too.

You should talk to Veritas or whoever supports your backup solution. Unless the "inconsistency" means "catalog is missing", you should be able to recover what is recoverable.

I'm having a problem to access some servers, I used to have an old NT4 workstation at my work with Microsoft Transaction Server, I have to access some components located in servers all over the Lan, the problem is I have now a Windows 2000 workstation with the Component Service and I can't access NT4 servers due to a Catalog error, the server is not compatible!!!, this doesn't make any sense to me, after all the NT4 workstation can access the 2000 Servers.

The people in technical support didn't resolve the problem, they just told me to use TWO workstations, my flawless new Win2000 and the old slow NT4 at the same time because they are unable to solve it.

Please help, I know there must be something to do, I'll appreciate it.

I need to uninstall and reinstall SP2. I cant get a version of SP2 to install without ording in the mail, from what i can tell, and i never made a copy of my original install since it was through the windows updater. Anyway, i hit uninstall, it goes through the list. I hit ok on the window for the list of programs it will affect. It keeps going to restoring catalogs. I get a popup saying cant find specified file. Then the SP2 was not succesfuly uninstalled. How can i fix this? I need to reinstall to wipe out an inability for Microsoft Management Console and other things to detect i have above IE 6.0. Its affected stuff that uses MMC and an installation of one anti virus security sweet so far. A few admin tools work taht look like they also use mmc, but, defrag, most of the admin tools, and device manager in System, give me a popup saying MMC requires Interenet Explorer 5.5 or greater. The security suite tells me IE 5.0. I cant get it to work. And i need to get access to some of my admin tools etc. Its possibly theres an easier way to get these programs to accept that i have a higher version than that since its possible its from running two version of IE. It gave me the ability to choose which one was the default in the IE's main bar and i switched back and forth, which could have caused the problem. I'm not sure though. I was useing NJStars modded version of IE. I've since uninstalled it. I beleive it was based on IE 4.0 or 4.5 or around there. It may have been... Read more
