Compulink Advantage 8.0 won’t print?

Q: Compulink Advantage 8.0 won’t print?

I have installed a new setup of this program on an existing network and I cant get it to print. The setup is pretty simple, I just install the software n Windows XP and share it. I create shortcuts to the actual program, help files, and mail that came with the software. I then set the Environment variable to the letter A. Next I go to the client computers map the drive, set the Environment variable B through E for the other five licenses, and copy the shortcuts to that computer. Once that is done the software opens and works fine, except I cant get it to print. When I open a file and try to print it, it acts like it is sending it to the printer but it never comes out.

If anyone has any ideas of what I might try or what I have missed please let me know. The trainers for this software will be coming in soon and I need this problem resolved before they get here.

Thanks for the help

Why won?t my printer print with Windows 8?
Have you just upgraded, or purchased a new computer with Windows 8, and now you can?t get your printer to work?  If so, this may help you.  A lot of people have questions about installing their printer on a new OS.  This will help you answer those questions and make sure that you get everything installed. 
 
Before You Start
Before you try to install the printer on a Windows 8 computer, you should check to make sure the printer is compatible with the new OS.  The link below will give you a list of the printers that will work in Windows 8.
 
http://support.hp.com/us-en/document/c03168175
 
If you have upgraded your computer to Windows 8 form another version of Windows, make sure to completely uninstall all of the software for your printer.  It should still print, but to use all the functions you will need to reinstall the software, if it?s available.
 
Another thing to consider is how you want to connect the printer to the computer. 

USB.  You should make sure that you have a USB cable that is no longer than 6 ft. (roughly 2m).  Make sure to connect the printer directly to the computer.  Do not use a USB hub. 
Ethernet cable.  Make sure you have the network setup, that you have a free cable port on the router, and that you have an Ethernet cable available.
Wireless.  You should make sure that you have the wireless network setup, and that you ha... Read more

Whenever I print to the shared printer on my Windows 7 desktop, the print job will just sit in the print queue. If I stop and then start the print spooler, the job will print. It happens from an XP laptop. Print jobs sent from the local Windows 7 computer print just fine.
How can i solve this one ? :(

This issue with some particular laptop running windows Xp and windows 7 Home

A:Whenever I print to the shared printer he print job will just sit in the print queue

So, the Windows 7 Desktop has the printer physically attached to it and it's shared?
And the XP laptop is sharing the printer through the network? If I understand you correctly?
If so, on the XP Laptop, go to Start/Run and type devmgmt.msc and press enter. Are there any devices with yellow flags? Or Under Universal Serial Bus Controllers is there an Unknown Device? Or any listings for the printer? If so, right click it and Uninstall it. Now go to Start/Run and type appwiz.cpl and press enter. In the Add Remove Programs uninstall any drivers or software for the printer. Now,go to Printers and Faxes, and if the printer icons is there, Right click the shared printer icon and Delete it. And Restart the computer. Now when the computer comes back up, go to the printer manufacturers support/download drivers site and type in the model# for the printer and download the driver for the printer for XP and install it. Now, go to Start/Run and type the computer name of the Windows 7 machine (ex) \\ComputerName and press enter. A window should open up with the shared drives on the 7 computer, with the shared printer. Right click the shared printer and choose Connect. This will add the printer to Printers and Faxes again. Right click this printer/Properties and print a Test Page.

The other day I was just surfing the web when all of a sudden my PC turned off without warning (the system had been on for some hours).
Thinking not much of it, I turned it back on again, continued using it and it has been running fine for the last few days, including running some intense programs, (rendering, etc).

Yesterday it happened again (whilst surfing), and now it wont turn back on.
Now Im not saying it definitely isnt the psu, although the psu is practically brand new (see my last problem). However the LED on the motherboard and LEDs on my peripherals (card reader, wireless keyboard receiver, etc) are all on.

If I power off and on via the switch on the back of the psu, and then press the on button, the power LED on the case will flash once, but after that nothing.

Ive tried unplugging all the drives from the psu to see if it will boot, but it still will not.

I'm thinking that the MB may be dead.
Any ideas?

Hello,

Yesterday I ran into some issues with my computer hardware - in the middle of a LoL game my computer randomly powered off instantly with no warning or anything and would not turn back on. After hours of attempts I realised when I removed the graphics card (Nvidia GeForce GTX 960 1x6pin connector) from my system it would power up on the integrated graphics, the motherboard green light (ASUS Z87-K) is always working also. I thought because the computer wouldn?t power up at all that there was a fault with the power supply (Cooler Master 500W) so I purchased another one (Corsair VS550W) and tried that. Still no power up with the graphics card connected, at first it would work without the graphics card also but after some tampering, replugging and cable managing now is not turning on at all, even WITHOUT my GPU attached with this brand new PSU. I?ve had the PC for just over a year and was advised maybe my old psu had just died but that appears not to be the case. I?ve also tried removing non essential components and booting but still nothing. Maybe there was something I could do in the bios and alter the settings? I did used to run the multi display bios setting which would allow me to use the integrated graphics witn one monitor and the gpu graphics with my main monitor just because I didn?t have two VGA ports (I use VGA because I have two old tv?s instead of dual monitors)

A:PC won’t boot at all

First of all, the vs series from corsair is the lowest quality unit corsair sells. It is NOT designed nor intended for use with a real video card. Even corsair says as such
The Corsair VS550 is a great choice if you?re building a home or office system with lower power demandsClick to expand...

Installing that pw supply did nothing for troubleshooting.

Here is what I would do;
1 First and foremost, get hold of a pw supply that is actually designed for gaming or other stressful endeavor
2 Install the quality pw supply
3 Now test with and without your video card. It may be that your video card failed however no one can tell you until you use parts that are designed for what you are doing with the system

I have a Belkin N750 connected to my CISCO modem. Currently have 3 tablets, 2 laptops, 2 phones, 1 TV, 1 Audio Receiver, and 1 Satellite DVR connected wirelessly. Everything is located in the same room most of the time (except phones and tablets). The router is located in a back office. I am investigating the possibility of relocating the router to the room with all of the equipment so that I can hardwire the TV, Sat., and Audio Receiver... but it is most likely going to be cost prohibitive. Just curious if there would be any advantage to hard wiring any of these into a secondary wireless router that is connected to the first one wirelessly. Would this just be a collosal waist of time?

Yesterday, I was contacted by phone by a ?Microsoft? certified network engineer working with Microsoft for Avangate Services, LLC (I HAVE NAMES, PHONE NUMBERS, AND ADDERESSES) stating they had evidence that Chinese hackers were in the process of attacking my laptop to obtain access to my banking data. They showed that over half of Microsoft ?services? >MSCONFIG>Services> were stopped and then that the hackers already had my bank ID and password. When I tried to access my account the hackers were busy removing funds from checking ($1600) and savings ($600). I was bounced out of my online account and could not get back in at the time.

According to these people my only solution was to install ?NSA Sonic Wall? with accompanying software on my network (cost $1499.00, check only) and for them to fix the damage to my PC. Any advice? I have not mailed the check!

Big problem!

This morning, when i turned on my pc, everything was fine. Booted up as usual. Then later, when i had to shut it down, i accidently pressed the sleep mode button. PC did enter sleep mode and the power LED was blinking as it should. but i couldnt get it out of sleep.
So i was forced to do a hard shutdown.

I removed the power cable from the PSU, plugged it back in later. Started up PC and wow... the power light in the front panel didnt work. PC started tho... All fans working and after like 5 seconds the PC shut itself off and then started up again. Monitor got NO signal. PC sounded fine. No beeps or anything. Hard drive didnt start making the sound that its reading or looking for anything. I was forced to do another hard shutdown (hold the power button for 5sec) . I tried taking out RAM sticks. My keyboard is not getting any power. CD/DVD drive seems to be working. All cables and components are plugged in correctly. Most of the components are pretty new.

ASUS P5Q SE PLUS Motherboard (Less than a year old)
Club3d HD4850 (OC Edition) (1 Year old)
4GB ram (2x1GB 1x2GB) (1GB sticks are like 3 years old and 2GB like 2)

FAT is the normal file system for floppies and in most cases no other option will be available, unless you've installed a third-party utility which allows the NTFS file system to be used for formatting floppies.

Hi Koldys,Thanks for posting.Apologies that your computer is not working as expected.Have you tried taking the battery out and using the adapter plugged in?  If it works, then it would indicate the battery has failed.  If it still does not work, then the charging/power circuit is probably at fault.  If that's the case, the motherboard would have to be replaced.

Microsoft has stepped up its effort to promote its Vista operating system, but Windows XP just isn?t going away. The company reportedly extended the OEM downgrade timeline once again: As of now, system builders can still offer Windows XP downgrades to their customers and will be able to do so until Vista?s second birthday.Click to expand...

News source

Perhaps Win7 should be based on WinXP instead of adding more bloat to Vista? I think Microsoft should get a clue. They should give customers what they want and not what Microsoft wants them to have.

I just got my XPS 15 9560 delivered from the online order yesterday around 19 hours ago. Last night I tried to power it on and undergo some setup as usual for a new laptop. All seemed fine. I did some research for a good anti virus program to have and I installed a trial for Bitdefender. My internet was not running well so I got a lot bunch of unsuccessful of windows updates. I thought to power it off and wait till the morning to do it. In the morning I powered it on to take a look with this beautiful 4k display when on my way to school. 5 minutes seemed fine. When I got to the school and sat down powering it up, got to the home desktop screen then 2 seconds later I got a blue screen and all these accumulating screen tearing flickering saying it will do the restart for me. I let go for 5 minutes but no progress on percentage status. I forced power off and when I tried turning it back on it won?t start but the light bar in the centre appeared orange and white repeatedly. After a few restarts I now totally can?t start it up anymore.
When I pressed on the power, I only get 2 orange 4 white 2 orange 4 white 2 orane 4 white then a little pause then another 3 times of the 2 orange and 4 white then the fan powers up really loud and it shuts down. ( the screen never appeared to be turned on in the process)

What exactly does it mean when a motherboard says its SLI, and what are the advantages of using an SLI board, as compared to a non-SLI one?
 

A:Whats the advantage of SLI?

SLI means you can connect TWO sli approved nvidia graphics cards together for a performance boost. It is really only necessary if you are a hard core gamer. For the average user, one graphics card is more than enough power.

Some would argue that an SLI motherboard also opens up your future upgrade options, as instead of buying a new graphics card when the current one feels dated, you can purchase a second identical card for an upgrade. I however don't agree with this line of thinking. Unless you are a hardcore gamer who is addicted to super-high framerates, a non SLI board will due just fine.

A:Disadvantage and Advantage

Advantages:Faster bootMore SecureMore diagnostics tools and repair solutions.Pretty much the same speed using 8 as 7.Disadvantages:Drivers are not as mature, so in many cases you need to use drivers written for Windows 7. This is fine in some cases and not in others.Start screenLack of start menuCan't use F8 key to get into Safe mode, but its possible to enable that.Lots of random problems pop up, mostly related to the start screen.

Hi,

I need to develop a rudimentary vb script to access Advantage AEP using VB6 and DAO 3.51 or ADO. This is a simple single user utility script. I don't have VB.Net and don't want to spend the $$ to upgrade. Does anybody have a sample script in VB6 to access this database and to deal with multiple recordsets with looping, etc?

Thanks so much for your help.

Bob
 

A:Solved: Advantage AEP and VB6

I feel it would be best to upgrade visual basic for this. Visual Basic Express 2008 is free so upgrade to that and then you may find making your script easier. If you want help with or in Visual Basic Express 2008 then just ask

Zazula, et. al.

Hope this isn't violating something given original thread has been closed....but I do want 2 respond to last post, and thank U so much for the info U posted! Also, too late 4 my desktop (not my lappy) I was my usual Lemming and just hit "I agree; I am afraid not to."
That's verbatim.

On other hand....I did reconfigure Zone Alarm. I didn't block Gen Advantage, but I asked firewall to ask me.....and when I booted just now, by God, there was Zone Alarm bubble window saying
Gen advantage was tyring 2 come in....and I told it "NO! Now...I am onto U! Do not darken my portal again!"

And finally....only this second struck me how disingenuously slick is the choice of the word ADVANTAGE. omg......AND until I posted yesterday....I am ashamed 2 say it had worked on me from day one.

Snake oil salesman ploys.....I find it very depressing. Yes I know....essence of marketing.....that is not the point.

Thanks again!
Ciao,
Jill

Someone else used my windows xp genuine advantage kit and code on their computer. Will my version of windows become ungenuine now?

A:genuine advantage kit

How on earth did someone use the Genuine Advantage validation from your PC?

Best way to find out if you are still 'valid' is to try Windows Updates, if you have any issues and you are running a genuine version of XP, call Microsoft and obtain a fresh code if need be.
