Preferred Solution: Visio 5 - saving files

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: Visio 5 - saving files

You might want to check with the network admin to see what rights or permissions are set for the folder you are trying to save to. I have set my document templates folder on my file server to be read only so people aren't changing templates.

Visio files are received as attachments in Outlook 2016. Visio Viewer 2016 and IE11 are also installed on Windows 10 (1607).
Previewing the Visio file (VSD in this case) is successful. However, when you try to open the Visio file, IE11 attempts to open it (as expected) but only displays a blank page.
Does anyone know if there is a fix for this issue?   Other articles suggest that Visio Viewer 2016 does not support IE11.

We have recently upgraded from Visio 2002 to Visio 2007 at work. It seems that there is an issue with the majority of files created in our previous version (2002) where the print size wasn't saved and defaulted back to 8 1/2 x 11 instead of 11 x 17. I found all the information I needed to make the macro to convert all of the pages (code listed at the end) but the only way I found to save it for future use is to save a new file as the template. Unfortunately, that doesn't help me as the files I need to use the macro on are preexisting. Is there a way, in Microsoft Visual Basic, to create a add-on with this macro? Also, if you create a Macro in Word it gives you the option to save it for all documents (Normal.doc) but there doesn't seem to be a corresponding option for Visio. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Code:

Sub pagesetup()
' Keyboard Shortcut: Ctrl+q
'
Dim pag As Page
Dim UndoScopeID1 As Long
'Run through each page in document
UndoScopeID1 = Application.BeginUndoScope("Page Setup")
For Each pag In ThisDocument.Pages

Hi,

At work, we recently upgraded from Visio 2000 to Visio 2003.

Mistake. Big mistake. Huge.

Now, when we try to edit the graphics, we get the same types of problems that many other users have reported: lines don't connect; text is improperly kerned (spaced between letters); text appears lighter (medium gray) in print and on screen; some elements don't display.

Has anyone been successful at getting Visio 2000 images into Visio 2003 format without heavy image editing?

A:Saving in word but files are not saving

It may be saved in a different place that you think.

Best option is to save the file attachment to some location, such as your desktop. Then open your wordprocessor and then open the saved file. You can work on it and then save it (use the "save as" option) to your My Documents (the usual location - or wherever you save documents). Then when you reply to the e-mail, "attach" the saved file to the e-mail.

I have a problem with a program not saving preset data. Possibly due to harlink extenstion with only one piece of software.

I use symbolic hardlinks on my system but I do not know if the following has any bearing on the issue with the software I am using.

The software is a plugin that works within a host digital audio workstation software (Steinberg Cubase and plugin Soundtoys V5) and uses presets for different settings.

All software is legit and registered. I have contacted the developer regarding the issue with no resolve so trying here as the issue may largely be to do with windows.

The associate plugin has been installed with admin permissions and the host DAW software is run with full administrative rights. I have double checked that there are no hardlink main or subfolders used in the installation path for the plugin software.

All other 3rd party plugins work fine when saving presets and using symbolic links of which there's about 60+ 3rd party plugins installed using the main host system, however this particular software is not saving correctly.

It will save the preset name as a zero byte file and reports unable to save at location.

All other plugins work fine even when using symbolic links when saving preset data.

The issue may have been to do with a previous install of the soundtoys software as a phantom install directory is being created during the installation

I'm wondering is there any suggestions as to how i can save her files before formatting it and starting over on ME and installing a legit copy of XP Pro upgrade. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

A:Saving files

One of the easiest choices would be to replace the hard drive in the laptop wit a new blank one and install the old drive inside a 2,5" housing with USB adapter. Install XP on the new drive, then using the USB drive gradually copy over all files that are wanted until you are sure that you have them all.

You could start beforehand with File transfer & setting wizard to find all the files, setting and folders that you want to transfer (before swapping the drive) then after making the transfer, double check that you missed nothing (I Think I would wait a few months) before formatting the old drive.

What is the best, quickest, easiest way to do this?

I have a box of floppy disks, (misc files and pictures, I've saved over the years) and now have a cd burner. I'd like to go over the floppies and save them on a cd.

I thought I could save the whole floppy file from each, (not all the separate files on them) but don't see how to do that.

I just tried opening the cd burning program (NTI) and opening the floppy in it, and dragging all the files on the floppy to the cd burning place.

This worked good, and saved them on the cd. But, when I try to open them they say there's an error. I can't access them. I check and it says "read only" (the cd file).

I'm thinking I have to open them, or send them to MY DOCS from the floppy first, and then burn them to the cd from there? I could probably set them up in folders, too, though it seems like a big, time consuming job. But, would be more organized to have all the graphics, text docs, etc. in a folder and then burn them like that.

I was alert enough to try one as a test (then try opening it) before I did them all.

Figured I'd get some info from the experts.

I am using CD-R disks, but have some CD-RW I haven't figured out how to use yet. I've been told they can be used like floppies, and if I had the right program, maybe I could send the floppy files TO the cd-burner (E drive)? Have heard that new pcs don't even have A drives anymore, that cd-rw are used instead.

Welcome!

There are a few ways you can back up your important files and transfer them over.

Does the old laptop have a CD burner?
You could burn everything to a disc.

Or, you could purchase a flash drive.
A flash drive is a small USB storage device that can be used to transport files from one computer to another. They are slightly larger than a stick of gum, yet the device can hold so much.

What is the best means of saving voice data files? I am a writer/interviewer. I have, so far, about 30 interviews that are between 45 minutes and 80 minutes each. It didn't dawn on me until I started thinking about saving the data to CD, that each file is actually very big, in both wave and mp3 formats. It appears, using these formats, that I can save only one to a whole CD. Any knowledge, or a better way, would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.

When I download a file/photo/program etc. I get 2 options, "open with..." and then browse so I can choose what toopen it with, and "save file", but is there any way to choose where I want to save it? Because at the moment when I save a file it goes into "Downloads" and I have to move it from there, but can I choose where to save each file individualy?

I hope you understand what I'm asking and I appreciate the help

I have a rather large HD and thanks to my son who has been messing with my PC I am now the proud owner of the slowest computer in the world, that either scares me to death with the blue screen or just takes a millenium to load.I don't know what he has been doing, or deleting or clicking on but I have to do a total redo. I have allot of files I want to save that are too large to put on CD and since I have another HD on this same computer is there a way that I can clean it. (it is an old one I was getting files off to put on my new HD). I used a special utility for that but since this old HD still has residual files on it from Windows XP, etc, I need to get rid of that and just prepare the HD for file storage only, right? If so, how do I go about doing that?
I have searched the net and get everything but what I want answered. LOL Maybe you can give me better luck since the option I am after is clearly going to be seen by a A PERSON, and hopefully replied to by a person. Thanks.

Ok, just to recap, you want to move all your personal data onto a second hard drive that's already in the computer. But first you want to remove all the current files that are on it?

To clean it, the best option would be to simply format it. Open My Computer, Right click the drive you want to clean, choose format, then choose the proper format option that you want, and click ok.

Once it's done you should be able to just Copy/Paste, or Click/Drag your files to the newly formated drive.
