Visio 5 - saving files

Q: Visio 5 - saving files

Get the following msg when trying to save to the network. This applies for any new document I create but I am able to save locally? ANy ideas?

An error (119) occured during the Save As.
The file was saved succesfully . Visio cannot open the file because the file is write protected.
You may open the file in read-only mode from the file menu

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.

I am using Microsoft word 2016 and Visio 2013.
I put the Visio images directly in the word document and a Visio object is created.
However, if the file I have created is opened and saved in lower version than word 2016 (let's say word 2010) the visio object is shown as an unidentified object in my pc. Whereas, in the other pc where it was edited (which was having a lower
version of Microsoft word) it works fine.
Please help me solve this problem.
Thanks in advance.

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

If you can select the save location, try saving to a different folder or on your desktop. It could be access right issue. I would find the specific folder, right-click on it, select Properties and then click the Security tab. To make sure there is no access restriction, I would add the user Everyone and give him (as well all the others) full access, just in case.

I am running Windows Vista and Excel from Office 2000. I have previously had no issues creating, editing and saving Excel files. I have recently started sharing files from my desktop which is running Windows Vista and Office 2007. However, the files that I am having issues with saving were initially created on the laptop where the issues are occuring. I can open the shared Excel files with no problem and make changes. When I save the files however, I get this message, "Your changes could not be saved to 'file name.xls but were saved to a temporary document named 'D6C73000'. Close the existing document, then open the temporary document and save it under a new name." I can open, edit and save changes made to Word documents in the same shared folder structure.

I recently sold my computer to a good friend b/c my husband and I had purchased a new one. The one I sold is a Pentium 4, 2.6 ghz processor, almost 1gig of ram, dvd burner, etc... running windows xp

She is claiming I ripped her off, and sold her a piece of **** computer. The problem she is having is this: when she tries to download a file (primarily from Limewire), she says it isn't saving anywhere. I've walked her through choosing her destination folder over the phone, but it "still isnt working". ....

Now you can confirm this for me: Is this even possible? "saving" a file, but it's not showing up anywhere on the computer (so she claims). She's said shes even tried searching for it on her computer but it still won't show up.

She also claims this is MY fault: a result of selling her a "piece of **** computer".

Correct me if I'm wrong, but if she's actually truely unable to save files, that would be a software problem, not a hardware problem, right?

I'm trying to help someone who has a laptop that is running a copy of XP Pro that cannot be activated. 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.

I've always saved in particular, gif. animation from the internet and they've worked fine.

Only now, I think ever since I formatted my computer, it doesn't give me the option to save them as gif's....

The only file extension I am allowed to choose when saving anything seems to be .bmp

So I unhide file extension and rename the extension to gif but that doesn't work either, it still comes up as a still image. I have tried with many different animation and can see they are supposed to be .gif's by checking the source of the file.

It will save the changes to a different file,which you can then
attach to the email.
Then you can close the original and select to not save the changes.
Then you can just delete the new file after it is sent.

Hi guys, I am sort of new to this type of posting so please bear with me. I tried to search for an answer to my question, which seems embarrassingly basic, but I don't think I have figured out the proper phrasing required to return matching answers.

Anyway, I have computers with both XP and Vista, for work and personal use, and I am always switching between them depending on where I am and what I need to do. Often I use the same files or sets of files on different computers, and when I return to my office I want to update my main files with the work that I have been adding or subtracting whilte away from the office.

What I have always had to do is first copy my base files to a portable drive or the laptop I am going to be using remotely, work with those files from wherever, then when I return to my office I have to copy the entire set of files back to the main location.

Is there a way to ask my computer to examine the two sets of data and only update the main location with new information, because it seems that every time I do this the computer wants to overwrite every file, even files that have not been altered? This takes quite a bit of time because the files I am using are sort of an archive file set, or a large group of files where I may only have altered or added to a dozen amongst 4000+ files. I am trying to cut down on the time it takes to update the archive, often an hour or more, without having to document the changes and move the files around individually... Read more

Hi. This is my first post here. I'm hoping that someone can help me out with this strange problem I have. Well, I haven't seen it before at least. Whenever I try to save something, the dialog box doesn't contain the space where you type in what you want to name the file. Also, the spot is gone where you select where you want to save the file to. In case I am making no sense, I made a screen capture of it:That is what the box looks like. I clicked on "save page as" to make it show up, just for an example to show on here. It seems like the only time it actually works is when I'm saving an image in my photo editing program. Everywhere else, I get a box like what I posted above.It just started doing this a couple days ago, and it's very frustrating, so hopefully someone here knows what's going on.thanks!
