Unable to Save/Save As/close Word XP file with Acrobat 5.0 installed

Q: Unable to Save/Save As/close Word XP file with Acrobat 5.0 installed

One of my user is having this problem on her Windows XP PC:

Dell GX260 with Windows XP Professional running 512MB RAM, Office XP, Acrobat 5.0

When opening a Word file & edited in Word XP, the user cannot SAVE or use SAVE AS the file, when try to exit out the file, get prompt to either SAVE, CLOSE, or CANCEL the file, at that point it will still not save the file, the only way to exit the file is to hit CLOSE to exit.

I initially thought this might be a Word Xp problem, so I ran the repair tool in Office XP, that did not fix it.

I then uninstalled Office XP, reinstalled Office XP, but that also did not fix the problem.

I then ran the Office update to download the latest patches from MicroSoft, but that also did not fix the problem.

I then UNINSTALLED Acrobat 5.0 from the PC, that FIXED the problem.

WITHOUT Acrobat 5.0 on her PC, the user was now able to open & edit a Word file, and able to SAVE the edited file, also able use SAVE AS to save the file as a new copy.

I then reinstalled Acrobat 5.0 thinking the previous copy of Acrobat 5.0 on the PC might be corrupted, as soon as Acrobat 5.0 was back on the PC, the same problem with the SAVE feature came back in Word XP.

I then installed the patch update for Acrobat 5.0, that did not fix the problem.

At this point, I am out of clues on how to fix it....The user tried Acrobat 6.0 before on the same PC, but decided to reverse back to Acrobat 5.0 because of format problem with 6.0.......so Acrobat 6.0 is not an option for this user.

Could this really be a Word XP problem instead of an Acrobat 5.0 problem?

Any help will be much appreciated.
Sincerely,

Keith L

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.)

Hello Everyone,

I'd like to write a .bat file that will save and close all open Word documents, then quit Word or terminate the Word process.

How in the world would I do that? I'm a complete novice at .bat files!

Also, could the .bat file be triggered only after Word has been unused/idle for a specified time?

I look forward to your responses!

Jay

A:.bat file to save and close all open Words docs, then quit Word

Hi,

Killing the word process wouldn't be too difficult but that would be on a schedule rather than x amount of idle minutes.
I don't believe a .bat file would be able to save any open workbooks though.

Are you able to provide some background on why this is needed and maybe there is an alternate method?

Regards,
Jamie

I lost a few hours of work due to:
Suddenly unable to save a file in Excel. No warnings etc. Blissfully working (and saving) along but when I boot up again later I found the file 'not saved' but a random number file eg; BDF45000 in directory. Opens up in Excel but with only some data.

I did:
Run repair, Office 2003 Proff. (No change)
Check for 'read only' (Not the problem)
Use Reg Mechanic, cleaned up and defragged... (No change)
Save under different name. (No change)

I use AVG... could it be that a third party app interferes with a 'proper save'?.. or AVG interference whilst excel tries to save? I am a bit paranoid at this stage... not trusting the pc. Ideas?

We have a new computer (Compaq dc7800 XP sp2) with Adobe Acrobat 8 Standard on it (MSOffice 2003 is the only other major application that is installed). After the user has finished editing a large PDF document and tries to save it she receives the following error: A FILE I/O ERROR HAS OCCURRED and the document does not save. Several of the pages have also lost all contents and are now blank white pages.

I have verified that all windows updates are current as well as the Adobe updates.

Right now we are trying to correct this problem without having to close Adobe if we don't have to (She has several hours of work into this document).

Any ideas and suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

A:How To Stop Ms Word From Prompting To Save At Close?

Word, and all Office apps for that matter, prompt when it thinks something changed.Some of the reasons why Word thinks so are change of dates, pages, table of contents, printer.Likely you've saved the document, but then went to some other printer - bingo, a change.Look into VBA commands. The full syntax for close includes the flag to be quiet.

Hi!

First time here as I'm usually about to fix my own computer issues.

Since my son got in somewhere on one of my computers, whenever I open Microsoft Outlook or Word, the "save as" dialog box appears wanting for me to save whatever at random. In Outlook especially, if I open it and receive an email, it'll wish for me to save the title of whatever it is as "whatever".htm. I'll continually cancel to not save anything, try to save what it wants me to, etc BUT it will continue to pop up. The same happens in word where I'm rendered helpless as it wishes for me to "save as" "Doc1" all the time. I'm not able to do anything else and neither program will close unless I open up task manager to "end task".

This has been going on for a week now and have had to manage my email on my ISP's webmail website. I've done virus scans - norton (even disabled it as I know it's a FUN program), performed office updates, clicked on the HELP - detect and repair but no avail. I'm thinking that my next step will be is to uninstall and reinstall after exporting my mail folders.

What do you think it could be?

A:Unable to save as word 2000 to 98 machine

If the place where you are trying to save your file is unavailable, save the file to a different location.

If you have tried to use an unusual character in the file name, remove it from the file name.

For example, the error message

The folder "(path)" isn't accessible. It may be on an unavailable volume, or protected with a password."

...is either caused by a genuinely unavailable destination, or it can be caused by having the "<" or ">" symbol in the file name.

Or.... Click Save As and save the file as an .rtf file insted.

I have been working on this document for the past couple of days, a high school maths investigation with lots of equations and graphs copied over from 'Autograph' a 3d graphing software.

Then when i press save in this dialog box the box closes for a half a second before opening again without me pressing anything. I do it again and again and notice the little loading bar that tells you it's saving in the bottom right hand corner of the document gets stuck and then stops when the box opens up again. I've tried to rename it and this doesn't work. i copied it into an old word document and then saved that document and that document wouldn't save either. i got rid of it off that document and the old document saved perfectly. I closed it just to check it was actually not saving and it isn't. Is there something wrong with my document? or is it word? please help!

My question is as follows (and it is probably a silly one, therefore please bear with me and thank you):

Is the prescribed procedure to delete the *actual keys* ("LastVisitedPidlMRU" & "OpenSavePidlMRU"), or instead to delete the *contents* of those keys? i.e.: Should I select/highlight the key within the left panel of the Regisgtry Editor, and then select delete; or should I select/highlight the key within the left panel, and then select/highlight in the right panel all the contents of that respective key, and then delete all those contents (not the actual key itself) indicated in the right panel?

Firstly, my employee's are running into a problem where they cant save their files because the file is "in use" according to windows 7.

What i've narrowed it down to is the fact that windows uses the files to display details or even a preview of the file whether it be a thumbnail or a window pane preview of the file or even simple details barring it from saving the file after it is opened, edited, and ready to be saved.

I have disabled all the obvious frills that might be conflicting such as: "file previews, show thumbnails etc." just cant quite get this resolved.

Also, windows 7 and its short term memory loss wont allow some of my employees to save their favorite folder views (I understand that windows 7 tried to implement a more functional window mode, allowing users to have multiple view for their different folders) but the "pick one and stick with it option" of "Apply to all folders" the obvious approach doesnt work. Or merely works for a few days then reverts. I've seen regedits about changing the "bag size" and such but that looks a little more involved than i want to get with the registry, also potentially affecting something in the process.

Any tips?

I saved again via the icon and closed the file. It asked me if I wanted to save changes. I clicked yes. Now, I cannot find the file anywhere. Did it save changes or delete it?

I did a search for files by the name the computer gave it which had %20 between each word.

I have one question concerning hijackthis.
At least six times, now, I have encountered a computer running XP that
exhibits the following problem:
I start the computer in safe mode, since I KNOW the system has malware.
I install Hijackthis to it's own directory. i.e. C:\Utilities\Hjt
Hijackthis runs. I can scan. I can delete the stuff I know to be bad, but I
CANNOT save the log file. As soon as I click the Save Log button, Hijackthis
is gone. Immediately. It will restart and scan, but no success at saving the log.
The problem will eventually get resolved if I continue removing stuff with
Ewido, Cleanup, CCleaner, and the on-line virus scans, i.e Bitdefender,
eTrust, Freedomnet, so on and so forth. So I know that something malicious is
doing this.
What I was hoping for, was that I might get a hint so that I could resolve
this right away. I like to save the log file for the customer and then edit
the file by adding the reasons to it as to why these things are undesirable.
This helps the customer learn to keep their computer cleaner.
I just wondered if you might have encountered this yourself?
I do not seem to have any success Googleing this. I find all kind of pages
telling me how to save the log. I am not saying that I am a genius, but I
know how to save the log, if it is possible to do so.
Any and all help is greatly appreciated.

A:Unable to save log File

Have you tried using the "Do a system scan and Save a logfile" button, so it does it all in one operation?

Right click on HijackThis.exe

She has consistently saved the file to floppy disk so as to swap between home and school PC but neglected to save to the HDD. Upon completing the project she attempted to load the final saved file from the floppy. To her great distress the file loaded in an apparently corrupted form with lines of text interspersed with numerous blocks of blank squares. The file seemed about double the original size, text was in an italic font and seemed to be randomly scattered and/or missing sections. She is naturally distraught at the possibility of having lost most of the data she spent weeks compiling and the deadline for submission looming.

Help...

I have MS Word 2003, which is the most current I think. It saves documents in .docx format by default. This creates problems when I try to access the files on older computers. Can I change the settings of the app so that it saves by default to .doc?

Thanks
 

A:Default File Format to Save - Word

Are you sure about the version number you are using? The latest version of MS-Word is 2007 and .DOCX is the default file extension for Word 2007 files.

If you are using MS-Word 2007, you should be able to "Save As" and save the document in a format that is compatible with some earlier versions of Word and have a .DOC extension.

Microsoft offers a free download of an Office 2007 Compatibility Pak for Word 2003 that allows opening the newer .DOCX format files.

I'm running Windows 7 64-bit and Office 2007 Students and Teachers. Everything worked fine for months. Now Word hangs every time I save a file. I get "Microsoft is looking for (something) to address this problem" and "Word is attempting to recover your data" which it doesn't. I've inserted the original CD and ran "repair". It says it did, but it did not. I also deleted Office 2007, re-installed if from CD and downloaded all the updates. This did not help.
 

A:Word 2007 hangs when trying to save any file

With Word and all other Office programs closed, open Windows Explorer (My Computer), and browse to the default folder that you are trying to save to.
Once there delete all "Tmp" files, including the others ones that start with a "~".
Now go into Word and give it a try.

I fixed my own issue "-_-
 
It turns out ComboFix has changed my Temp Folder security settings for my User profile.
 
For folks who might have the same issue -> you need to right-click Temp Folder (C:/User/App Data/Local/Temp folder... something like this) and change the security settings accordingly to allow "full control" for your User profile as Administrator.

Hello readers,

I was wondering whether there is a way to tweak IE6 so that the default web page saving scope is a Dragnet-style "just-the-HTML-facts, ma'am," rather than the complete page with all the graphics from the advertisers etc.

I dislike manually having to override the default prewired into the product every time I want to save HTML ONLY.

Thanks for your help!

Roland
 

A:IE6: File>Save As>. . .>Save as type>Joe Friday?

The only way I have seen, is to completely disable the save as web page complete. It will then default to save as web page, html only. But the save as webpage complete is missing altogether.

Open up regedit.

Go to HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Policies\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Infodelivery\Restrictions

Create a new dwrod value with the name NoBrowserSaveWebComplete

Double click the NoBrowserSaveWebComplete and set the value data to 1

I have two problems with Word 2003.

First, regardless of any changes made to a document, when I close the application I do not get a prompt asking if I want to save the changes.

Second, I cannot open more than one document at a time. If I have a document open, and I try to open a second document, it flashes the second document on the screen briefly and then closes it, leaving me with my first document open. There are no windows minimized to the taskbar, and there are no documents (other than the first document I opened) listed in the Window menu of Word.

I have installed all updates and service packs (both for Office 2003 and for Windows XP), and I am not using any 3rd party add-ins. I even tried uninstalling all Office related applications and reinstalling. No dice.

This has been going on for quite some time now, and I cannot find ANY information that seems to relate. I am begging for help here, so anything is appreciated. Thanks in advance.

When I try to download any file from the internet the usual pop-up box appears offering me the option to "Open" file directly or "Save" file, or "Cancel". If I click "Open" the file will begin to download but not open upon completion. If I click "Save" then the box disappears and nothing happens, It doesn't freeze but I am then unable to close IE and if I go to Task Mananger and manually shut down IE it says "Not Responding", then once it closes IE will not open again without a restart.
I've done a scan with my MacAfee and there aren't any viruses, I've deleted all history and it makes no difference, I've also tried changing Add-Ons function and nothing.
Any ideas would be really appreciated!
Thanks,

Hello,
I am running Microsoft Word 2000, Windows XP SP2.

The problem I am having is trying to save edited MS Word documents on a usb flash drive. After I have done some editing with my word document and try to save it to the usb flash drive, the error messages "Word cannot complete the save due to a file permission error" prompted into his screen. I then discovered that the file was deleted from the flash drive whenever he try to save the file directly to flash drive.

I can duplicate the scenario and get the same problem over and over again.

So fare this only seems to happen with MS Word documents being saved on the USB drive. If I save a word doc on the C drive, open it, and edit it, it allows me to save the file with the updates to the C drive as normal.

Any suggestions? I'm not sure what a "file permission error is". I am using Norton Internet Security 2007, and I have tried disabiling it, thinking that it was a secuirty problem related to Norton, but that did not work either.

Please advise if you can help me.

Thank you
 

A:Word cannot complete the save due to a file permission error

Hi

Depending on you flash drive, it could be write protected. There may be a small slider switch to move. Do you have a secure flash drive? These flash drives offer secure sections on the flash drive and you may need to use the software that came with the drive to unlock it.

It could also be faulty!

Hope this helps

I have had a very annoying problem with Word 2002 on a Dell Win Xp computer. I have 2 megs of ram and the procesor is 2.66 GHz. When I wish to save a document it takes about 15 seconds to go from one directory to another when I want to save the file or to go to a non default directory or a flash drive. It also takes this amount of time to retrieve a file. I have started using OpenOffice Writer since I can save and retrieve files immediately. For the final copy of the document I then go back to Word. This has been quite annoying for months. Has anybody had this experience? Even after installing a new harddrive sometime ago this problem surfaced. Thank you in advance.

I had this problem a couple of months ago and it seemed to go away and now is back. I am writing a users manual and its getting big (4.5mb). Before when the file got to about 1mb, whenever I tried to save it (using either save or save as) word would abort and i'ld loose everything. I got around it by keeping my sections to under 1mb.

I am now ready to turn the document over to operations for their use and couple of weeks ago merged all 8 sections into a single document to see if I could. I did and its just over 4.5mb. There is 290 pages, over 200 screen snapshots pasted in as pictures and its 372,241 characters long. I was editing the document with no problems. Then all of a sudden word started aborting again.

When I try to save, the progress bar moves almost all the way to the end, the light on the USB drive flickers and then word aborts. The error message I see is for

WINWORD.EXE - Application Error

The instruction at "0x30a917b1" referenced memory at "0x00000661". The memory could not be "read".

and when I click on ok to terminate I loose everything and end up with a .tmp file in my saved folder. Efforts to open the document again results in it being locked and I have to completely log off to free up the document.

I am on a DELL PRECISION 340 using windows 2000 (5.00.2195 Service Pack 4) and Word 2000 (9.0.6926 SP-3). I have 1GB of memory.

A:word 2000 aborts with a large file save

Hi,

Turn the document into a PDF file using Adobe Acrobat or any free PDF file creator. There are numerous.

Any printer will be able to work better with a PDF file in preference to MS Word. Especially when you have pictures etc in it, producing a large file.

With a large MS Word document you would be better saving the various chapters individually.

Word often has problems with large files.

How much memory & what processor speed.

I modified an IE attachment from hotmail and then only used save instead of save as. I cannot find the file now. I run XP on a virtual machine in Linux. How do I find the file?
 

A:Lost Word file after modifying IE attachment without using save a

It might be in the IE temp files folder. The typical location for Vista is:

C:\Users\<username>\AppData\Local\Microsoft\Windows\Temporary Internet Files\

The typical location for Windows XP is:
C:\Documents and Settings\<username>\Local Settings\Temporary Internet Files\

EDIT: Not sure where it is on a virtual machine.

The file may be gone if you have privacy settings set to clear temp files when exiting IE or shutting down Windows. It may also be gone if you visited a lot of sites after the last save and it was over written with new temp files.
