Device Metadata installation information

Q: Device Metadata installation information

I am tring to implement "Device Metadata" for Win7. But after installing the devicemetadata-ms file, there is nothing changed in Devices and Printers folder. I chose to install the file by INF file and it certainly shows in Driver Detail of Device Manager without error, even in Event Viewer. Does anyone know that where I can find more installation or debug information inner Windows? I used
Win7 6936 Build, did it support "Device Metadata" function?

Preferred Solution: Device Metadata installation information

I recommend downloading and running DAP. It can help sort out any driver and firmware related issues on your system

It's worked out well for many of us in the past.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloaddap.org. (This link will open the download page of DAP so you can save a copy to your computer.)

I didn't know where else to stick this thread but I think here's a good place.

I just noticed that since I installed 7260 I've lost the device icons for things like my Sandisk Cruzer Micro USB Drives. Win 7229 automatically downloaded the metadata and displayed the icons. This failed on 7260 so I manually added the data but it vanishes from it's location! I've tried it a couple of times and each time it's gone once I click Devices and Printers to see if it's worked. Does anybody else have this problem or am I missing something?

A:Losing Device Icon Metadata

Can someone with 7260 check %LocalAppData%\Microsoft\Device Metadata\dmrccache.

If you don't have a folder called en-US, create one, close explorer then click the start orb-->devices and printers then check the file path again and see if the en-US folder is still there. Everytime I create this folder and and the files needed for the icon metadata it's removed after I check the devices in control panal.

I need to know if it's just my machine or a bug in 7260 due to the fact that it was created from a VHD image.

My family's pc is running 7201 and the icon metadata behaves as it's suppose to.

edit: FIXED! I had accidently left the DEVICEMETADATA-MS File labelled as copy. Once I renamed it and put all the files back it fixed it. I love those high-res icons

I have an issue where seemingly random Windows 7 x64 computers will not display Microsoft Office file properties/metadata.  The issue appears to be independent of the Office suite version.  We recently migrated to Office 2016 from Office 2007 and
Office 2000 prior to that.  Oddly, metadata is displayed for a small number of files, but for the majority of files that do have metadata it is not displayed and cannot be edited through Explorer.
The screen captures below were taken from two PC's.  The 'Title' metadata is highlighted yellow and 'Categories' in red.  The same set of files is displayed in each capture.  As you can see only a small subset of the metadata is displayed
in the second capture.


If you try to modify the metadata from the 'Details' pane on a PC that has the issue you get this:

I downloaded a zip "screensaver" from Top Downloads (oddly enough, although I chose it from
Google search results, the item wasn't listed when I later went to the site itself using my browser!). I had to use "save" rather than "run" as the latter option was not given. It downloaded fine to My Downloads. When I clicked on it to continue installation, the "screensaver" immediately opened and it was very nice BUT there was no "install" option connected to it. Was this, indeed, a screensaver (that's why I've put that word in quotes above--it certainly was indicated as being one)? It seems to be a routine animation and not a s/s at all. It is definitely not showing among my screensavers in Display. I would appreciate any comments. THANK YOU!!

I deal with confidential and classified information. I am aware that simply deleting a file from your computer is not sufficient to remove it completely and have software to erase data as permanently as possible (Eraser 6.0.8 - using the Gutmann eraser method of 35 passes of random and patterned data). I believe this to be sufficient.

What I want to know is how data on an external storage source is managed by a computer when it is not copied to the hard drive. What information is stored and is therefore recoverable?

For example, if I have a picture file on a CD or external hard disc and open it using MS Image viewer (without copying it onto the local hdd) is an image retained in a temporary file somewhere that might be recoverable?

If I simply open up a folder (again on an external storage source) to view the contents in Win Explorer, is a temporary thumbnail log, or filename list, stored on the local hdd somewhere and therefore recoverable?

Is it a different situation with running videos?

If I do a direct burn of files to CD from an external hdd, are the files cached somewhere and again recoverable?

Is opening up a text file in Word a similar issue - I know the filename is stored in the recently opened list, but what other info is recoverable?

etc, etc, I want to know the risks I am exposing myself to so I can manage them accordingly. How do I manage these files on a computer not part of a secured network or should I not bother? I'm not planning on losing my l... Read more

A:Window 7 installation failure, 'Windows could not retrieve information about the discs on this computer'

Hi AlecHetho,
 
Based on my experience, this error usually can occur because the VDS service is set to disabled. To resolve it,  we need to enable the “Virtual Disk” service. Please refer to the following steps:
 
1)       Click Start / Run and type SERVICES.MSC
2)       Look for the Virtual Disk Service
3)       Right click it and choose "Properties"
4)       Change the Startup Type to Manual, then click the Start button.
5)       Reboot and try the upgrade again.
 
If there isn’t Virtual Disk Service listed, you can take the following steps to populate the disk information:
 
1)       Click Start / Run and type devmgmt.msc
2)       Expand the Disk drives and double click the disk.
3)       Click Volumes on  the disk Properties.
4)       If the volumes information are blank, click Populate.
5)       Insert the Windows 7 installation disc and launch Setup.exe

I just bought myself new HW and a new SSD for my computer, and I also installed a fresh Windows 7 on the new SSD. I put my old HDD with Vista on D: and copied a couple of documents over to "my documents" folder to my C: drive + a couple of other files.

I am now cleaning up my D: drive to get rid of all the Vista files which I don't need any more, and I have stumbled over "System volume information" folder. This folder was last modified at the date I installed Windows 7 (5 days ago). Can I just remove this folder without any repercussion?

A:"System volume information" folder on my old Vista installation

It's actually a part of System Restore; the tool that allows you to set points in time to roll back your computer. The System Volume Information folder is where OS stores these points and associated information that makes them accessible.
If you're not using System Restore feature, you can delete it. I recommend you to keep it untouched.

Is it possible to get more information on KB3025097?

I am working on an NFS server implementation and I'd like to know whether there is anything that can be done to avoid the issue from the server side. The KB article does not say what was the issue with the NFS client and how the hotfix changed the behavior.
Any additional details about the KB3025097 issue would save me the trouble of trying to tweak the NFS server behavior to see if the Windows NFS client will accept it.

Any hints on what the issue is related to would be very helpful. E.g., is it something about our FSSTAT reply that Windows NFS client doesn't like?

Ultimately we need a solution for all recent Windows versions (Win 7 or later), but any information that applies to any

I have recently bought and installed a permanent copy of W 7 PRO and had no problems up till installing the printers. I tested the release copy of w 7 Ultimate for 3 months w/o having any major issues so I'm quite surprised at this. Anyway I want to install a non-connected printer by picking it from the lists in the "Install Printer Wizard" but every time it tries to load the selected printer it returns a message "Printer driver was not installed. Operation could not be completed (error 0x00000003)." I had previously installed my printers on the RC 7 copy through the wizard and as I said had nothing like this happen and exactly all the same hardware was in play. I have 2 printers on a print server so I have to install the printers first so I can config them in the server menu. If you run the hardware discovery wizard of course it doesn't see anything new and doesn't go any further than the searching stage so I cancel out of it. I'm just a little stunned to see something like this after having a great experience with the release copy!

A:Device / Printer installation!

Welcome to Seven Forums, rpopovich.

From another site, this may be the problem and solution:






Quote:
It seems that you do not have enough permission to add the local printer driver.

If your computer is in a workgroup, please logon an account with administrator privileges to add the printer driver.

If your computer is in a domain, I suggest first adding your domain account to the local Administrators group. Or you can use a domain admin account to add the printer driver.

WiFi connection gets lost automatically. Need to restart several times. Again problem gets repeated. Tried updating and rollbacking drivers. Uninstalled driver in the final attempt as well. Still problem persists. It shows "Device PCI\VEN_8086&DEV_08B3&SUBSYS_00708086&REV_83\34E6ADFFFF52349C00 requires further installation" under "Intel Dual Band Wireless-AC 3160" Information I went through all the previous posts and forums, tried updating BIOS as well. Nothing worked out.  Please help me resolve the issue.

Hi: Did you try the latest W10 driver directly from Intel? If not, this is the one you need...2nd one down on the left for 64 bit. https://downloadcenter.intel.com/download/26171/Intel-PROSet-Wireless-Software-and-Drivers-for-Windo... If you still have the issue after installing the driver, the only other suggestion I can offer would be to uninstall the Intel 3160 in the device manager, click the uninstall driver box, restart the PC and reinstall the above driver.

There were some photos and videos on a man's computer that covered an event that later a competitor somehow found out about. Is there a way to determine if those items were accessed on his computer when he was out of the country?
Will metadata give information of when the files were accessed and if so how is that done? He was running XP Home premium on that computer.
Thanks

Is there some software or maybe another way that I can read metadata? I have a lot of digital family pictures and videos, but can't remember when they were taken. Since the family is no longer around no one can help me to date them. Some I can guesstimate, but most are a total blank to me. My understanding is that metadata can tell me when the pictures were taken.
In case You are wondering I do have a nasty head injury and that is why lot of things in my past are total blur.
Thanks.

Hi,

I have a somewhat advanced question regarding Adobe Metadata -

A landlord sent me a PDF that in 'Properties', shows me the Application it was made with, including the PDF producer and the PDF version.

I suspect that this particular document was forwarded to the landlord by an unhelpful neighbor. When I check previous documents sent to me by the landlord none of the metadata matches. But I have an email from the person I suspect sent it, and the Application, PDF producer and the PDF version all match.

I understand this could be a coincidence, but before I ask this person if they were the one who forwarded it to the landlord, I wanted to know how much of a coincidence it was.

The application was a Canon CS1011 scanner and the software IJ Scan Utility (which I understand is Canon's software). The version is 1.3 (Acrobat 4.x). Are those three things combined enough to reasonably suspect this other person of forwarding this document to the landlord?

Sorry for the long question and sorry if it doesn't belong here. Any opinion greatly appreciated.

I download music from e-music to which I subscribe. My default player is Windows Media Player 11. My problem is metadata. WMP11 brings some down but a lot is missing. This is especially the case with album art. Personally not having this data takes a lot of enjoyment away from playing my music.
Does anyone know of a program ( commercial or free ) which would be better at finding metadata than Windows Media Player 11.
Thanks in advance.

Try MediaMonkey (freeware). You might want to edit out your email address so you don't get spam.

Alright, this could also go in the Home Theater section but it applies to both so I put it here.

I have a collection of music going on. Currently re-ripping my non scratched and destroyed CD's to apple lossless. I have a bunch of older songs which are mp3 or acc at typical 192-320kb/s. I am trying to organize them better, for I didn't rip them with itunes and they're just scattered through a folder called "Music." My problem is the tags are not being displayed in windows.

I only see eg: Title: Lynyrd Skynyrd - One More from the Road (Deluxe Edition) - Whiskey Rock-A-Ro - - Artist: Blank - - Album: Blank.

Some screen shots to show you;




Sorry if they are giant, I enjoy my dual 22" monitors.


How can I fix this so windows will display metadata in .m4a and id3 tags in some mp3 songs? (Vista SP1 newest updates) This would help me organize music sooooooooooo much easier.
(Some songs display the data some do not. All of which have the data...)

Please and thanks.

just as jpeg files have metadata embedded in them with exif. header do Mpeg files contain metadata and if so how can I access the metadata to view. Can anyone help

A:Mpeg Metadata

Wow, been a long time since I've heard that term used towards photos. So long, I had to go and look it up I found this information on it here, which you might already know.I also found this page here which will allow you to download a program to read/write metadata to pictures.The above may or may not be what you're looking for. I think that the 2nd link will be of more use to you, assuming that the program does what you need it to.If you're using Photoshop, you can do pretty much the same thing from within photoshop by going to File>File info (or Alt+Ctrl+I). This will allow you to input all sorts of (all text) data about the photo or anything else you want. I've used this for years, as it allows users to view info from/about the image right from photoshop itself, so they don't have to open another program to pull metadata from an image.Other freeware apps (photo editing ones) may or may not allow you to do the same (File>file info).Hope this helps. If not, post back and someone else might be able to help you out.
