Q: Basic Programing

Hi sorry to bother people, but I'm looking for a place to start with creating BAT files but I don't have this first Idea how to go about it. Its just a personal interest thing, any websites with info would be great. I can handle HTML and a bit of Java so I do know the basics of program.

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.)

I used to use Microsoft Basic programing language for writng programs to solve mathmatical problems. I am talking 50 years ago!

Where did it go & how can I get a copy of it?

I know it ran under MS Dos.
So I would need MS Dos will it run under W7 64 bit?

Is there a modern program that I can use & don't have to compile and is as simple as MS Basic? I Know it used to be called "Spaghetti Basic" but it worked!!

It was even used in the early "Space Race"

Admittedly, this is a somewhat stupid question from a beginner. (sorry)

Microsoft has made availible (for free !!), "Express" versions of their various programming languages. These include Visaual Basic 2005 / C++ / C## / and J##. I've played around years ago with VB-4, but it's been years and I've forgoted 90% of it.

So here's my questions:

1) What's the primary differences between these four programming languages ? Meaning; where would you use C++ instead of C##; or J## instead of _______ ?

2) I would think Visual Basic 2005 is the best place for me to start ? Would you agree ?

3) There seems to be T-O-N-S of "how to" books out there for learning each. Thoughts as to which series are the easiest to understand ? (meaning LOTS of illustrations / clear "non-super geek" only explanations )

Hi am new to java and i have a program my teacher wants us to practice and write.
Here is the program instructions:
Using the PairOfDice class from programming project 5.10, design and implement a class to play a game called Pig. In this game, the user competes against the computer. On each turn, the current player rolls a pair of dice and accumulates points. The goal is to reach 100 points before your opponent does. If, on any turn, the player rolls a 1, all points accumulated for that round are forfeited and control of the dice moves to the other player. If the player rolls two 1ĺs in one turn, the player loses all points accumulated thus far in the game and loses control of the dice. The player may voluntarily turn over the dice after each roll. There for the player must decide to either roll again (be a Pig) and risk losing points or relinquish control of the dice, possibly allowing the other player to win. Implement the computer player such that it always relinquishes the dice after accumulating 20 or more points in any given round.
Here are the 5 classes required
Die:
public class Die {
private final int MAX = 6;

private int faceValue;

public Die() {
faceValue = 1;

Why are programs so difficult to operate and when you find a problem, the error message is written in greek! Nobody understands your language but you geeks who eat, drink and live this junk all day. You design these sites to make it nearly impossible to make contact with a living person, which adds to the frustration. You want an example, look what I had to go through just to get this to post, ridiculous! My computer came with McAffe installed, I want it gone and after a half day bouncing around in my computer I discovered it will probably follow me to my grave. Even my add/remove program cannot delete it, I am sure that is a programming detail so you can't dump it. Who's computer is this, mine or yours? if it's yours you better send me a check. Computers are the only things we spend a lot of hard earned money on and wind up having no control of, thats wrong. I want McAffe out of my computer now! It is probably the worst program ever written. Please help or add reinforcment to my theory that computers and those who write the programs are out of control.

I am well aware that this is probably not the proper place to ask this. But i do think that the people who mod and frequent this sight have good sense and i would value your opinion in this matter.

MY twelve year old son is very interested in computers (games, robots, you name it). I think that being fluent in a programming language (or several) will be incredibly useful in his future. I bought him this book "Python for Kids: A Playful Introduction to Programming" he really liked it. He got about half way through it. School work, sailing, soccer ate up all his time and the programming just did not happen.

school let out and now he has time to pursue it. I have been told that Code Academy (python) would be good for him, i have no problem paying the upgrade fee for the full Monty.

I did a few of the lessons, and it is wildly different from the book i gave him (Python for kids) is this something that he can benefit from?

Would anyone care to recommend program languages that are appropriate for 12 year old?

How about online tutorials, books, ect?

A:32 Bit Programing running 64 Bit World

No, timlab1955, if Office 97 is running well for you on your 64 bit Win 7, you will not have problems later on. You might, however, want to consider upgrading Office eventually.

Pretty much all 32 bit programs run fine in Win 7 x64 and compatibility mode can be a help for those that don't.

If you're really in a pinch, just install Virtual XP (you have Win 7 Professional) and you'll be able to run anything that works in XP that, otherwise, doesn't work in Win 7.

Old man wants to learn programing language like Pearl. PC Windows 98Plus and I need to start at near idiot level. Disability income is on the thin side so MONEY is an object.
 

A:Entry level programing Language

---oops---

I just re read your post and seen that you mentioned perl. I didnt catch that the first time and that is why I steered this toward VB. I am going to leave my post so others can add to my logic, correct me if I am wrong, or just flame the heck out of me for singing the praises of Visual Basic.

---/oops---

I am just getting started in the programming field myself. When I first started looking into programming it was suggested that I start with Visual Basic because the learning curve is lower then with the more advanced languages like C++. And VB is a great stepping stone for the more advanced languages so it is a good place to start.

From a beginners point of view (mine) VB is very powerful and will be probably be the only language I will ever need to do the things I need to do.

For instance, with the knowledge I gain from VB I can customize MS Office Apps with Visual Basic for Applications which is built into most MS Office Apps and can make them more even more powerful, I can use it to write Active Server Pages and VBScript for web development. And this is just a few things that you can do with the knowledge you gain from it and without ever leaving the Windows/Office programming environment.

Sams Publishing has a Teach Yourself Visual Basic 6 book that has the VB6 Creation Edition included with it.

Anyway, there are many programs that generate and manage passwords. An easy way to enter them is to get your browser to do it automatically at each site you are a member of, then you don't have to remember or search for them.

i have an MS natural ergonomic keyboard 4000 which has programmable buttons to bring up files or websites which is very convenient, but the one thing i can't figure out how to program into a button is 'my computer'.

does anyone else use this keyboard? or is there a dos command i can use to direct it to 'my computer'?

thanks,
jtn
 

A:MS natural ergonomic keyboard 4000 programing

'My Computer' is not a real folder, it is what is known as a namespace,

This command will open the 'My Computer' folder with the folder tree on the left
%SystemRoot%\explorer.exe /E,::{20D04FE0-3AEA-1069-A2D8-08002B30309D}

This command will open the 'My Computer' folder with no folder tree on the left
%SystemRoot%\explorer.exe /N,::{20D04FE0-3AEA-1069-A2D8-08002B30309D}

Hi. This is a very strange problem but here it goes.

Once in awhile when I'm browsing the net, playing a game or pretty much doing anything some program opens. I never see a window but I always see it appear in the start menu for about 2 seconds and then it closes. I usually don't have enough time to react and click on it before it goes away, but one time I did and nothing opened (I could have been a second too late, not too sure)

If anyone know how I could find out what this is or how to solve it that would be really great because its getting very annoying!

Thanks
 

A:Solved: Random programing opening on start menu

My bet is that it's a harmless update manager. One of your programs could be set to automatically check for updates. It's hard to say though...

Could you define "once in a while"...?

Can anyone help me make a command using notepad that can execute a task at a given time?

A:Using notepad(batch programing) to execute a comand at a specific time

You need to explain what you want the task to do to get specific help creating a BAT file.

Basically you need to: Create a file with Notepad and save it with a .bat extension and type of "All Files".
This BAT file will have the commands you want to execute.

Then you need to add a task in Scheduled Tasks to run the BAT file.
In the Scheduled Task Triggers tab, choose "On a schedule" for the "Begin the task" drop down list and enter your schedule info.
As this is in the Security Forum, my guess is you want to run some type of Security Program(s).
I've set up BAT files and scheduled tasks for MS Security Essentials and Malwarebytes Pro.
So, if it's those programs you want to run, I may be able to help you with the BAT file.
If you need to run some other security program(s), I'll help if I can...but if I don't have your specific program I can't do any testing...

Hi,

I have a Toshiba Satellite L655 Lap top running Windows 7. I have been on a web site wouxun.com website trying to down load a programming software provided for free for my Hand Held Radio I purchased from them; KG-UV8D Programming Software.

The problem I am having and a difficult time to resolve is when I am trying to download the software windows live movie maker pops up as if it was the designated program selected to download the software and you can view what I see with the attached screen shot document I provided.

How do I resolve this issue? I tried to figure out if it is a default settings, but I was unsuccessful to correct or resolve this issue. I am also unable to right click on it to where a selection may give me the option to "Open With", but no selection is provided after right clicking on the download. If there is someone computer savvy who can assist me your help, time and support will be gladly appreciated with great gratitude.

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 )

I want to keep Win 8 as default, I know my way around this machine its just this dynamic drive is troublesome.

I am cross posting this in Win7 forum as well, not sure which place is more appro... Read more

Use free Partition Wizard bootable CD version 4.2 which still has non-destructive Dynamic>Basic conversion as a free feature: pw422.zip ISO - Windows Live

Backup a WIn8 System image and your files, Boot CD, Rightclick on the HD to convert. Create/Resize your partitions as you wish.

Adapt these tips for getting a perfect Win7 reinstall: Reinstalling Windows 7

Win7 should configure a Dual Boot menu, if not use EasyBCD to add Win7 after install. Earlier versions of Easy are still free.

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. Notepad is what came up with the most results and the Win32_ScheduledJob object appeared to be what was needed.

I researched many different places but this is a decent walkthrough. http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/windows/desktop/aa394601(v=vs.85).aspx

I grabbed the code below out of the website and changed the date parameters to run in a couple minutes from my current time. I could see the task in scheduled tasks but when the time had come and gone nothing would happen and this is just trying to get it to run locally so far.

strComputer = "."
Set objWMIService = GetObject("winmgmts:" _
& "{impersonationLevel=impersonate}!\\" _
& strComputer & "\root\cimv2")
JobID = "Test"
Set objNewJob = objWMIService.Get("Win32_ScheduledJob")
errJobCreate = objNewJob.Create _
("Notepad.exe", "********143000.000000-420", _
True , 1 OR 4 OR 16, ,True, JobId)
If errJobCreate = 0 Then
WScript.Echo "Job created successfully: " & VBNewLine _
& "Notepad.exe scheduled to run repeately at 14.30 (2:30 P.M.) PST" & VBNewLine _
& "on Mon, Wed, and Fri."
Else

I have been a Virus Hunter for more than 10 years... Through trial and error I have found ways to remove any virus manually; using various anit virus programs and or spyware removers. Not everything works perfectly... There are some very good antivirus programs you can use downloadable from Bleeping Computer. If "you"  the user have some knowledge in creating a CD / DVD from an *.iso file this will be so much easier for you... 
If you never have...  some rules to begin with....
 
1. Create a disk using a clean computer. (nothing worse than having your nusance (virus / spyware / malware) attach it's self to your newly created CD /DVD / USB stick)  
 
2. Find a CD / DVD / USB stick (*.iso type) creation software... some for free, Windows seems to have one I found other, or 3rd party sofware a bit better.  
 
3. Research the "creation" software nothing worse than using something that will "erase" a newly created CD / DVD if you don't learn how to "turn off" the softwares "Auto Load" feature...
 
4. I tell you to create on DVD or USB because if your computers' system will not "Auto Load" first from the DVD / CD drive it should load from the USB first (external USB CD / DVD might help here)  
 
5.  I am not here to get you to "buy" something just here to help...
 
Check out Comodo Rescue Disk.... download for free... What it does? It loads a Linux / Unix graphical interface program "Before" Windows has a chance to th... Read more

There are too many variables and other things you need to know, you just don't throw out commands and thigs work. Get a good book on VB programming and use any of the help or online tutorials that come with VB. There also plenty of forums on the net that are specific to programming.
