Solved: Check if URL exists

Q: Solved: Check if URL exists

I've got an app which streams images from a URL and saves them locally. I'm using the
System.Net.WebRequest and System.Net.WebResponse classes to achieve this. When the URL is valid it's fine, everything works OK, but when it's given an invalid URL, of a domain that doesn't exit, no exception is thrown and the request is redirected to openDNS. This leads to the stream writing out a small file which contains the contents of the openDNS response page. Clearly this is not the behaviour I'm after. If the URL is invalid I want an exception to be thrown. Even the statusDescription of the response says "OK". Does anyone know how I can get around this? BTW it's in C#.


Preferred Solution: Solved: Check if URL exists

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: Solved: Check if URL exists

Have a browse around MSDN C# function reference, I'm sure you'll find a function that will return the IP address of an URL or similar info that you can use to test the URL prior to your problem call.

I'm using Excel 2007 on XP. The problem I'm having revolves around an OLAP cube pivot table. The table is a P&L. The code segment below is looped through 300+ times, once for each division (a filter on the pivot table).

I'm trying to check if, for a selected division, a pivot item exists. If it exists, I want to expand the drilled down detail. If not, I want to ignore it and proceed to the next segment of code.

The code executes well for 313 of the 322 divisions. Then it trips and throws, "Run-time error '1004': Unable to get the PivotItems property of the PivotField class," on the first Set ptPF statement.

Thanks in advance for any help!

It could be that you have alot of shadow copies on your HDD.

Try clearing your shadow copy(s);

Right click on your hard drive and click properties. Click Disk Cleanup then click “clean up system files”. Now click on the more options tab then under System Restore and Shadow Copies click “clean up”

Dear Tech Support Guy,

I have searched the internet and while I have found problems related to this, I had a hard time finding the exact same problem or a solution.

I installed a legitimate program which allows me to generate custom maps for a game I have Europa Universalis III. As you can see, there are three folders in the "Map Generator" folder.
However when I open the program and attempt to load a map I am able to view a folder which I can't view in Windows Explorer
I am able to use the program to load files from this invisible folder. It is very worrisome that I have a folder on my computer that Windows explorer will not show me. I am administrator and have set myself as the owner of the root folder and the "Saved" folder in question. Under properties->Security I am listed as having all access except "special permissions" which I can't select. Under permissions I am listed as having "Full Control".

Under the "Auditing" tab it states it is unable to display the current owner. When I attempt to take ownership I get the following error.
I assume this folder exists, how can I view it in Windows Explorer? I would like access to the files.
On another note how do I ensure that this doesn't happen again? Why does windows allow files to be stored on my computer but not make them visible even to an admin? How would I detect and delete such a folder? This folder conatins ~100Mb of information but Windows w... Read more

A:Solved: Cannot view a folder which I know exists

Using DOSBox I am able to confirm that the folder and the files exist. So I guess my question would now be how can I view folders which windows hides from adminstrators? In DOSBox I also noticed that there were other windows folders which do not show up in windows explorer. I assume these are part of the backup system.

My girlfriend's laptop (Sony Vaio, # VGN-CS220D) recently had freezing problems, as mentioned here, and it was working alright for a few days, but it started freezing again. I was going through the driver updates for it available from Sony's site, but it would freeze up around every third driver that I installed. Both the regular Disc Scan and the bluescreen Disc Scan from the bootup/Safe Mode menu finished without finding any problems, but once we log in from the Vista User Login screen the desktop is a blank black field, and while the task bar is still along the bottom none of the shortcuts in it or in the Start Menu will do anything other than bring up a brief flash of a window before disappearing. This is true for standard start up and all Safe Modes... (The only difference being that the black field says "Safe Mode" in all four corners.)

I fear that the computer has met its demise, but if there is anything to be done, I'd love to hear it.

Huh? What does this message upon startup mean? Do I need to fix something?


A:[SOLVED] "A duplicate name exists on the network"

Do you have a network with multiple computers (perhaps in a home with more than one computer, all connected to the same router for internet access)? The message means that at least two of them have been named the same. Go to control panel, double click system, go to computer name tab and look at the full computer name field. Make sure each computer has a different name in this field. If you find two with the same name, hit change on this screen on one of them and give it a different name. You have to reboot for the change to take effect.

Hi, I just made an account here because I rather desperately need help, as I think I did something incredibly stupid.

My Mozilla Firefox has been giving me trouble for a while - it consistently crashed whenever I tried to select something from a drop-down menu on a certain page. Finally I decided to re-install it...and I thought I should un-install it first. Because I thought I still had Internet Explorer also on my computer; I did download it a while ago. Well, there's no trace of it to be found.

It didn't take me long to realize what I had done, so I quickly did a system restore to just yesterday. Mozilla Firefox is back as an icon and as a listed program - but when I double-click it, the hourglass appears only briefly next to my arrow for a moment, then disappears, and nothing loads.

I've tried to get the internet to open in a bunch of different ways, clicking links in my mailbox and using the Gmail symbol in my toolbar to "go to inbox," but nothing works. I know the internet's working because I can load my IM programs and talk to people.

So I just have no idea how to get the internet back on your computer when you don't have any sort of browser to begin with. I'm afraid I'm going to have to do something drastic like re-install Windows (and what's the consequences of that? Will it affect what's on my hard drive?).

So please, help will be vastly appreciated.

Hello everyone,

So here goes the story. I had a couple of school files I needed to put into a CD-R. I inserted the CD-R into the drive and attempted to burn these files onto the CD.

I didn't know that the CD-R already had files on it. The School files were finished burning but when I opened up the CD I could only see the previous files that were on there.

The previous files that were on the CD before the school files were just random video clips, all in the avi. format. Now half of the files on the CD are still fine, they play normally on Windows Media Player. The other half of the files didn't seem to work.

I believed it was a common CD recovery issue so I attempted to recover the lost files, little did I know the files weren't even real avi. files. Here is the part that confuses me. The files that are not playable that come out to say "File Format not supported" do take up space. Some take up 1.6 mb, some take up 700 kb. It confuses me because the files take up space and claim to files yet they do not play.

When I tried using programs to fix the files it said the files were not even true avi. files. They still take up space though. As I looked farther into this problem I came to realize that the hex of the corrupted files seem to be quite different then the actual files that do work.
The good ones had "RIFF LIST or something like that" but the bad ones just had aslasga5s4f6asf15a1f... you know what I mean.

Running Windows XP, Service Pack 3.

Trouble started three weeks with Live Care crashing system. Finally got everything running last night after a two day battle to install IE7. However, in the process User Accounts were damaged.

After reinstalling Windows XP and all software except IE7, everything worked fine. Had three accounts: Admin, and two limited accounts. pw protected. After IE install and lots of talk with MS tech support, only Admin appears on log in screen. Tried to create the two accounts since all data existed in C:/documents and settings, but error message is that account already exists. Created two new accounts with new names, transferred data, all is ok.

However, I would like to return to the old account names, so I changed login procedures to require typing in Account Name, which worked for the "lost accounts" so the profiles and data must be OK.

Is there any way to restore these original account names??

How many times have you clicked on a shortcut only to get an error message that says such and such DLL is missing, and the only way you could get the program to work was uninstall and reinstall the software? That problem doesn't exist with RZDLLBackup. Once RZDLLBackup is installed, run the program and RZDLLBackup will scan your system for all existing (latest copy) DLL´s. The next time you receive an ERROR message saying the program won't run, open RZDLLBackup (leave the error message open), fill in the path name (from the error message) and the name of the missing DLL and RZDLLBackup will restore the missing DLL.Click to expand...

So I got this cell phone that I want to try to connect with my supposedly Bluetooh-enabled laptop. Originally I attempted this after I had upgraded to Internet Explorer 7.0, but that was rife with problems, so I downgraded back to 6. Now if I open up My Computer and double-click on My Bluetooth Places, the "hour glass" sits there for a bit as if it is actually doing something; then, it reverts back to the arrow cursor and the laptop acts as if I never asked it to do something.

And then order the HP recovery disk from hp or computer surgeon to reset back to factory install to get it working. I don't recall Win8 machine came with a HP recovery partition but you had to order the disk from HP or 3rd party-I could be wrong but that how I remember it. You can't use another system recovery because it is tied to that system COA and doing so would invalidate their COA something they wouldn't be happy to find out. You must use and get the Recovery disk matching your Serial number to restore your system.

I'm not looking to record or stream or anything. I'm just wondering if there was a way to input my consol (say ps3) to my computer tower and just open a window that had my PS3 displaying to it, and I could move, minimize,maximize resize (with or without ratio lock). I'm aware of capture cards but like I said I'm not looking to record or stream, I just don't want to switch input sources on my monitor. If there is only capture cards can I be referred one that is extremely cheap but at least decent quality that is perhaps usb or something other than direct motherboard connection. Again I don't want to stream or record, just see my ps3 input on my desktop in windowed form. Almost like an emulator but with the actual device supplying the input instead of files on my computer.

a program that will open it, I get 3rd party web sites wanting me to run THEIR registry fixing program.  HELP!  I am running Win 7.  Thank you.

A:IE no longer exists on my computer

See my response to Robert Dyer-- above.  Any other thoughts on the issue.

I don't think you have responded to this question:
Is Internet Explorer (or possibly Internet Explorer 11) listed in...

Programs and Features | Turn Windows features on or off

But if what you see there is  Internet Explorer 11  and it is unchecked it would explain all your symptoms.  Unchecking that option is designed to hide  iexplore.exe  and its shortcuts.
However, it is actually a GUI implementation of a DISM command and some other browsers apparently exploit that and perhaps somehow even hide the option in Windows Features.
So in case you don't even see the option to check in that list here is a way to get started at looking at the DISM side of it.
The easiest way is to start an Administrator: Windows PowerShell and there enter:
PS C:\windows\system32> Get-WindowsOptionalFeature -Online | where {$_.FeatureName -match "Internet"}

Just paste and enter the bold stuff.  The directory level doesn't matter.  I'm leaving that in the example as another reminder to be sure that you are using a PowerShell window which is
elevated.  If you like you can get into one simply by entering  powershell.exe  in an
elevated cmd window (aka Administrator Command Prompt).

I was trying to add an HP 1200SE printer manually by way of linksys printer server(no Win 7 updated drivers).

After configuring it, it didn't work so I attempted to redo entries. I now get a message "port already exists" after I deleted the previous install.

How do I delete the already in use port so I can start over?

Windows 7 64 bit on just acquired Z570 Lenovo laptop.

Thanks for the help

A:Printer port already exists

You could always try avoiding the print server and turning on UPnP in your router, as long as your firewall is nice and tight, and printing that way direct through the workstation hosting the printer... although you may need to embed fonts in documents to get them to print correctly...

I have a exe file in the Folder call FChart 4.0.1. I would like to write the batch script to check if FChart.exe exists in the FChart 4.0.1 folder then copy it to specified folder. NOTE: the issue is that I would like to have it generic therefore I want to avoid 4.0.1 and only look for FChart folder and then file inside. I've written script but it doesnt work and its not generating any error as well

IF EXIST "VMFChart *\VMFChart.exe" XCOPY "VMFChart *\*" "%vmpath%" /E /F /G /H

Thanks in Advance

A:IF Exists in Batch File

Is the file name FChart.exe or VMFChart.exe? The text says FChart.exe, the command says VMFChart.exe. Same with the folder name.

Easiest way is to try to switch to the FChart* folder. If that succeeds, you then check for the file and copy it.
If FChart 4.0.1 is a folder under the Program Files folder, this should work:

@Echo Off
PushD %ProgramFiles%
PushD FChart* 2>Nul
If Errorlevel 1 Goto _NotFound
If Exist FChart.exe XCOPY "FChart.exe" "%vmpath%" /E /F /G /H
Goto _Copied
Echo FChartXXX folder not found in %CD%
Goto :EOF
Echo FChart.exe copied to %vmpath%
Note that if you have different versions (FChart 4.0.1 and FChart 4.0.2), it will switch to the the first one as listed in a Dir command that is sorted by name. Names with numbers aren't always listed in the same order as in Windows Explorer.

Have a custom tower and don't know the make/model of the drive, but it was working perfectly until recently. Tower has a DVD-ROM drive and a CD+/-R/RW burner drive. Now, it is almost as though the CD drive is not there; the Drive is gone from MY Computer, and it will not even open, like the power is shut off to it. The DVD drive is usually OK, but sometimes it vanishes for awhile and then reappears; the only difference being that it will always open/close, even when the icon is missing. I tried uninstalling some burn programs, but to absolutely no avail. Ideas????

A:Drive no longer exists?????

I have been refered to this section by one of the trojan removal team.

I currently have a "duplicate name exists error" on startup (just prior to logging in).

I have attached a pic of the error message in hope that someone can shed some light on it.

The system I am using runs xp professional.

Many Thanks in advance


A:Duplicate name exists error

The computer you are trying to boot has the same computer name as another computer on your network. Unplug the Ethernet cable to this computer and start the computer up and log in. Right click My Computer/Properties/Computer Name/Change and change the name of the computer to something different then the other one. Restart the computer with the Ethernet cable plugged in.
