I'm a novice about much of my computer, but what I want right now is to find out how to move pictures from my picture file to ebay. I can't sell without pictures. And what are links and how do I do them?

Preferred Solution: basic how-to

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.)

Windows 8 is the default and only OS on this laptop. Please do not suggest restore or backups - they do not exist.

I am trying to reinstall a fresh Windows 7 back into this laptop for dual boot purposes. I have a Win7 ISO all ready to go on a flash drive. The problem is... I cannot get the 20GB "Windows Seven (S " drive to convert from dynamic to basic. THere is no data to backup, Im tryiong to do a fresh install. Ive been trying for two weeks.

Why am I trying to do this? Because I just want to get a copy of Win7 back on here to fall back upon when Redmond pulls the auth key for Win8 Dev

This is the status of my drives. Theres one.. its 465GB System has 200MB and Win8 is on C with 465GB. THIS is a Dynamic Drive. I know C cannot be made basic. I know Windows wontr install on anything but Basic.

How do I either 1. Fix this so I can install Windows 7 onto a new partition of 20-25GB OR 2. create a new drive for this?

I know how to create and shrink and delete all that Ive tried all this Data Partition - Windows 7 Forums and its other tuts but I cant get around the Dynamic. I dont want to pay 30 bucks for a tool either -- there must be a way to do this and I put my hopes in the Windows community to bail me out (if you have android troubles, i may be able to help )

Hi everyone,

I've been trying to get my feet wet in creating a .vbs file from notepad to do a basic function. I wanted to be able to run .reg files remotely but also interactively. This led me down the path of simply finding an example of a .vbs that would open anything remotely at all.

Hello,

I guess my question can be asked in two ways, the short way and the long way.

Here's the short one:

Can you do everything that you can do with VBA with VB?
The long one is:

I need to be able to write programs that conceivably invovle web forms/web services (VB right?), Microsoft SQL Server 2002 (VB again right?) but also Microsft Office applications like Excel and Access (VBA??). Does that mean I need to learn both Visual Basic and Visual Basic for Applications? In my initial research into Visual Basic I've learned that Visual Basic for Applications is a subset of Visual Basic, so shouldn't that mean that Visual Basic, being the parent and more powerful than Visual Basic for Applications, is capable of performing all of the functions that Visual Basic for Applications does?

Thanks for your help,

A:Solved: Visual Basic vs. Visual Basic for Applications

If it will help you, C drive is always your operating system drive, you do not want to mess with it. It is where windows 7 is located and where you normally install programs. D drive is a data drive - it is where many people place their data. That would be used for things like your my documents, my photos, my music etc. You would do that for several reasons. If your system becomes corrupted or inoperable you would not lose some of your most valuable things. Some things like family photos, many of your documents and such are difficult to replace. It also saves space on your C drive. If your system becomes inoperable, it will most likely be the operating system. That and your programs can be replaced. Without knowing, I cannot tell you about the Q drive.

Who installed your operating system? If Asus installed it, it could be a recovery partition or something, but usually they are not given a drive letter like Q. If Asus installed it, there should be an explanation in your owners manual.

I would suggest that when you first come on this site look in the very top on the right side. There is an extensive collection of tutorials. They are written by members of this forum and are very good. You can learn many things that you can do with windows 7.

If that does not help, you come back but you should provide us with an image of disk management. You can get there by typing disk manahement into the search box when you click on the windows button on the bottom left of your screen. then... Read more

I recently got a new computer which came with a DVD Burner. I have a few questions...

**It is important to note that I am NOT trying to rip or make copies of actual physical discs that I own (which seems to be what 99.9% of all of the advice online is about). I don't own any DVD's really, I am working with files I have on my hard drive, downloaded files***

First of all, is there a certain file type (ie: .avi, .mpeg, etc...) that I should be looking for that works best for burning DVDs? I know that when i used to burn audio discs there were a lot of different file types (ie: wav, mp3, etc..) but it was the mp3's that you needed to burn music discs for regular audio players. What filetype do i need to burn regular video discs to be played in regular (non computer related) DVD players?
Secondly, can anyone recommend any shareware that I can use to actually create/burn the DVD's after I have them physically downloaded on my machine? My DVD burner drive came standard on my HP machine, and so I woulda thought they would have included a burning software, but it appears they didn't. I have one that burns audio discs, but not video.

Hi everyone,

I have a relatively simple question. I have a ms access database app written in vb6. I have a function in the app that allows the user to edit a record. The way i'm currently working this is by using the adodata.recordset.addnew method which writes an new record to the database and then i'm going through using SQL and deleting the old record. I was wondering if there is, and i'm sure there is, a way to bring up a record and edit it and save it as opposed to writing a whole new record and deleting the old one.

Thanks to all who read!
 

A:visual basic 6.0 ADO

G-Man:

As you are using ADO then you have the ability to Update a record:
Code:

With ADOData.Recordset
.Fields("MyField1").Value = "My New Value"
.Fields("MyField2").Value = 400
.Update
End With

This updates the current record with the new field values. Now this appears very simple (and it can be) however you do generally need to consider a few things. Firstly you need to ensure that the recordset (table) that you are updating has a primary key. If you don't then you will either get spurious results or you will get an error message that may say something like "insufficient base information for updating".

I would strongly recommend that you avoid using the ADO Data control and create your recordset(s) in code as this gives you much more flexibility in terms of setting the cursortype/locktype of the recordset which governs whether it is updatable etc.

Another method that you can employ is to use a standard SQL statement to perform the update (though here again a primary key is strongly recommended to avoid odd results) and do something like this:
Code:

ADOData.ActiveConnection.Execute "Update MyTable Set MyField1 = 'My New Value', MyField2 = 400 Where MyKeyField = 123456"

at 6:00 i have to submit an interface game for a major project... ive prolly messed this up, but im still hoping.....

anyway, i have a circuit board with 12 LEDs (6 red, 6 green) and 12 buttons. its basically a really small version of a roulette table... and i have to write a VB program to control this.... so you click a button to start, pick one of the numbered lights with a button, and then the game picks one of the random 12 lights. If it is the same then you win... a 1 in 12 chance game

does that sound simple to anyone? cos i just cant learn it and produce it in time and im facing failure.

id appreciate any help so much, even if you just know someone else who mite know...

thanks

Hi, Brad.
I'm really sorry to say that it's highly unlikely that you'll get anyone to help you out. Most people will not assist you with homework, much less when you have not taken the responsibility to do it on time.

I'm sorry, but please don't hold out hope for it. I have to lock this thread, and I'm gonna delete your other duplicate.

I am writing a simple little program for school, and it turns out that it is not as simple as I thought it would be. Here is my problem:
I have a text box named txtPass, and I need to make the contents of the text property invisible. I was told to declare the the global variable of sPass and have it capture all the characters of the txtPass text box. I'm probably making this sound harder than it is, but in other words, i just need the password to be invisible when it is typed into the text box. Anyone know how to do this?

Is there a freeware (opensource) version of Visual Basic? There are a boatload of good powerpoint templates and games that require VB but my school does not have it. My administrator is hesitant to buy something that she doesn't understand, so I am trying to find a freeware version of it to show her and the rest of the teachers how useful it can be.

This is probably a really simple question, but I'm just starting out with VB.. What I want to know is how to launch an external program from within my program, for example when I click a button launch say explorer?
 

A:Visual Basic 6

To start Calculator in Windows 95 via VB code:

Private Sub Command1_Click()
Shell "C:\Windows\Explorer.exe", vbNormalFocus
End Sub

That will start explorer when you click the button. You can change the second argument (vbNormalFocus) if you want it maximized or minimized or whatever. Also, of course, you need to make sure the path is correct.

Can anyone help me correct this code?? I have to figure out what it does and design the GUI in the form.

Private Sub btnFactorial_Click( _
ByVal eventSender As System.Object, _
ByVal eventArgs As System.EventArgs) _
Handles btnFactorial.Click
Dim x As Double
Dim Fact As Double

lblOutput.Text = "To determine the Factorial of a number. " _
& "Please enter a number less than 10."
& "Then, click on the Factorial Button to view the results."

x = Val(txtInput.Text)

Fact = Factorial(x)
lblOutput.Text = ("")
lblOutput.Text = (" " & x & "! is " & Fact)
End Sub

Private Function Factorial(ByRef x As Double) As Double
If x <= 1 Then
Factorial = 1
Else
Factorial = x * Factorial(x - 1)
End If

End Function
 

A:Visual Basic Help

Well, you'd have a label, a textbox, and a button. The user would enter a number in the textbox & click the button-then this would calculate the factorial & display it in the label. BTW, the lblOutput instructions don't belong here. They'd not only not show up until the user clicked on the button (and how would they know to do that if the instructions aren't shown?) but they'd also be overwritten by the output.

I need to pass an array of values to a select statement in VB6 but need help with the syntax

cmnFileGet.CancelError = True
cmnFileGet.FileName = txtFilePath.Text
cmnFileGet.Filter = "*.txtDate"

cmnFileGet.FileName = txtFilePath.Text

is the line of code that is currently passing a single file to the select statement. I want all files that qualify for the filter "*.txtDate"

txtDate is a text box the end user fills in. For example I want all files that qualify for "*.7/30" if the end user has entered 7/30 into the text box.

The syntax in the case statement must somehow cause the program to go back for the next value in the array once all the other code in the case statement is executed.

Any help will be greatfully appreciated.
 

A:Visual Basic Fun

If I understand your question, you would want to do something like this:

cmnFileGet.Filter = "*." & txtDate.Text

That would limit the dialog box to files with an extention "7/09" in your example. Again, I'm not sure I understand the question. I appologize if I'm way off here, but let me know if I am...

As far as the array part of the question goes, if your array was called Dates() where each member of Dates() was a date entered by the user:

for x = 1 to UBound(Dates)
Select Case Dates(x)
case "7/09"
...
case "7/10"
...
case else
...
End Select
Next x

[1] When you have a contact highlighted in "Contacts", is there a keystroke that will dial that contact's phone number?

[2] Is there a way to have Outlook open to the Contacts screen?

I'd be most grateful for your emailing any answers to:
[email protected].

Many thanks,

Steve
 

A:Two Basic Question

[1] I don't see one, specifically. Right-click and choose Call contact. I don't see anyway, even customizing the toolbar since putting a "Call Contact" button just provides a drop-down button anyway. Seems this would require scripting, and you'd have to decide whether work or home would be the number you'd choose to call when you hit the shortcut key. You can also try this website: http://www.outlookcode.com/

[2] Tools-->Options, Other tab. Advanced Options button. Choose "Startup in this folder" to be Contacts.

I have heard of chipmunk but that changes code around a bit. I am looking for a way to run some time of shell or something like that so i can program in VB on the mac operating system. who knows what to do
 

A:visual basic on MAC

The closest thing I have seen to VB for the Mac is REAL Basic. I haven't even messed with a Mac in quite a while so I'm not sure how easy it is to get ahold of. From what little programming I did on the Mac, the syntax and code is much the same.
I hope this is what you're looking for and that it helps you out some. I really liked REAL Basic but I wasn't very experienced when I used it so I'm not certain about it's limitations, etc.

I use VB to create stand alone programs for ship positioning. They dont use the net, but require a fast cycle time good serial io support, and good multi layer graphics for chart construction.

VB.Net does nothing but bad things for my type of application, which I am the first to admit is in a minority of VB apps.

Power Basic looks like an attractive alternative. Has anyone done the move from VB to Power Basic and with what results ??
