Preferred Solution: How can i check modern app version?

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/directdownload.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

Hello guys, i got a BSOD, got it many times in a row, i think it's my ATI drivers, but i'm not sure, could you check it and tell me how to fix?

It's just restarting after a while of playing, after that it's turning on telling me that windows recovered from an unexpected shutdown, after it dumped all of the memory i can't turn it on for like 10 minutes, if i try to turn it on then it imediately turns off again. After waiting ~10 minutes it can be turned on again.

My Specs:
Windows 7 Home Premium x64
Intel Pentium Processor T4400(2.2 GHz, 800 MHz FSB)
ATI Mobility Radeon HD 4650
4GB RAM

It's a laptop, Acer Aspire 5738ZG to be exact.

I wonder how to check what version I.E im using now ?

And which the correct link download the latest I.E ?

A:how to check what version I.E im using ?

In IE, click the Help menu and click About Internet Explorer. This will show you the version and other info about your version. The latest version is IE7 (with IE8 just around the corner), available from Microsoft at this page: http://www.microsoft.com/windows/internet-...er/default.aspxNote: the page above has a big banner for downloading IE8 Beta 2. This is a test version and ought not be used unless you want to be a test monkey. Scroll down to where it says Select your Operating System to get IE7.

There may be several ways, but here is one:

Use Lame to encode an mp3. Then use a program such as Encspot, which will show you many properties of the mp3--including the Lame version.

The reason I ask is because some of my classmates have told me that the Professional version of Win7 that is available through our campus ELMS website isn't really a "final version" and that it might start failing on March 2010. I have been holding off doing a clean install because of this and would like to see if me and a classmate can check for sure if it is a final version or not. Is there a file we could check? Is it "watermarked" in the wallpaper like the RC versions?

Thanks for the help.

A:[SOLVED] batch script to check office version

Welcome to TSF!

If statements in Batch can only check one condition, not two.
You could add the numbers, if it equals 2 assume it's off line.
Or something like this would be needed
If "%office7"=="1" If "%office3"=="1" GOTO offline

When echoing Text and using redirection, the space before the redirection symbol will be included, so all the Computer names would have a trailing space added, so using that result would not work. You'd have this:
\\PCName \c$
Instead of this:
\\PCName\c$

This is how I would do it, check if the PC is available first, then check for the shortcuts only if it is.

Code:
::@Echo OFF

>>C:\log.txt Echo ">>>>>>>>>>"
>>C:\log.txt Echo START

For /F %%a In (C:\Computers.txt) Do (
Echo ======================
Echo %%a
Echo -------
If Not EXIST "\\%%a\c$\Documents and Settings\" (
Echo %%a>>C:\offlineComputers.txt
) Else (
If EXIST "\\%%a\C$\Documents and Settings\All Users\Start Menu\Programs\Microsoft Office\Microsoft Office Word 2007.lnk" Echo %%a>>C:\office2007.txt
If EXIST "\\%%a\c$\Documents and Settings\All Users\Start Menu\Programs\Microsoft Office\Microsoft Office Word 2003.lnk" Echo %%a>>C:\office2003.txt
)
Echo ======================
)>>C:\log.txt 2>&1
>>C:\log.txt Echo "<<<<<<<<<"
>>C:\log.txt Echo THE END


exit /b
See if that works for you.

A:Opera 11 startup: check for latest version of start page

Hi,

There are several ways in Opera for multiple websites to load at startup, can I ask how exactly you have set this up? E.g. using Sessions, bookmarks, speed dial etc.

The only thing I can think of that would fit your problem is that Opera is "Continuing from Last time". If you check the startup preferences in settings, it might be set to do this. Otherwise if you wanted several homepages that would reload on startup, the best way to do this would be using the Sessions feature.

Load the tabs you want at startup in the browser, Click Menu>Tabs and Windows>Sessions and save it as a new Session. When I tested it this worked fine, the sites were reloaded rather than bringing up cached pages.

The Opera community site is working fine for me at the moment. Check again to see if you still get that problem.

I just had a user come in with a problem with IE on her desktop so I thought I would see if the Modern UI browser would have the same problem. When I went to her Start/Tile screen, all she had was the white tile with the blue "E" which took me back to her desktop IE. Could not find the blue tile with the white "E" which on my Windows 8 is my Metro/Modern UI browser. Is there a way to put back the Modern UI IE? I went under all applications and it wasn't there either. Why would it be obliterated from her system in the first place?

Skype-Modern App

Ok, I'm using the Modern Skype app and I want to change my picture.
So I click on my user pic and I am taken to My Pictures folder.
But I don't wanna be there, so I "Go Up" to the Users Folder and
click/open Play. But I do not see App Data listed.

What I would like to do is browse to this specific folder
without leaving the Modern Skype app.

c:\Users\Play\AppData\Roaming\Skype\Pictures\

Why?
Because that is where the picture I wish to use is located.

I am well aware that I could drop out of the Modern interface
and copy/move the file from there to the My Pictures folder.
But why is one 'forced?' to take that extra step?

So I guess the bottom line question is this....

I am reading everywhere that Windows 8 is not being very successful by now, but the big thing with Windows 8 is Modern UI and the whole new ecosystem of apps, market and interface.

And I still don't know how much are Windows 8 users using all of it.

For instance, I never use Modern UI at all. I never check the app market, never install apps, never use them...

What about you?

*NOTE: NEVER also means RARELY, too little use to being called occasional use.

There's an OEM for it for $100 on eBay. (AUD, 72.91 USD) I don't have a paid OS yet (Win10 IP, planning on Linux Mint) I'd like a retail copy of 7 at some point, so I've always got a transferable licence for future systems.
 
Basically the plan is to have Windows 7 retail dual-booting with XP x64.
 
But I don't want to waste $100 on XP64 if it's not any good. I love XP, and to be able to use it with a 64-bit CPU and 8 GB RAM is enough to make me want to buy this. I'm just not sure if there will be any major problems with the OS that make it no better than the 32-bit version. (I know of the little glitches already)
 
So basically, is XP64 worth buying at $100?

A:Windows XP x64 on modern PC

IMO XP is not worth $100 plus it is no longer supported by MS so no updates leaving it vulnerable, I would move to 7 which has support until 2020.  That will give you time to think out your next step, 7 can be bought for about the same $$.

Would the game perform well on that computer?

I don't play many games nowadays. Certainly not the newer ones as I tend to stick with games I've owned for years. One thing that concerns me is the size of install of the modern games. I've seen a couple of late that shocked me because they are 40-50 gb in size. That seems utter madness. Is that the norm nowadays? I was thinking of getting myself back into Steam but I don't fancy kicking off downloads that seem so large or even wasting such a large % of my hard drive to a single game.

A:Are most modern games always about 50 gb?

Hi Scotty,

It appears the games just keep getting larger in size with no end in sight. In fact, there are a few out there that are well over 100GB in size. However, you can still find some games that are relatively small in size but who wants to buy a game based on size?

Good luck,

aardvark

Hello all! I have just upgraded to windows 10. A quick visit in the windows store revealed that a few of the apps that I have installed already are also available as modern apps (i.e. QQ, onenote etc.) which makes me wonder if there is any performance boost in using modern apps over desktop ones or vice versa? Thanks!

A:Modern app vs Desktop app

Hello mx900 and welcome to the TenForums

There is no general rule of thumb on this; often the modern apps lack some of the functionality of the desktop apps but this is not always the case. I think you have to experiment and see. I have found OneNote to be good as the modern app, the Dropbox app is not so good for me as it does not sync with my desktop folders.

My WMP11 does the following:
1. It clones music titles...even in front of my eyes.
2. Music files disappear.
3. Titles are now assuming wrong names even though content remains.
4. My music files come from my Music Library. Those have not changed or cloned..

5. I deleted WMP11 and re-installed...but all the above errors returned.
6. My Library files are skewed. Music is mixed with Video and with Documents and all around. Why? I dunno.
7. My music library is around 25GB; but it changes with the losses mentioned in #2 above.
8. I tried RealPlayer but their format leaves a lot to be desired by me. Also, it keeps requiring Flashplayer and no matter how many time I download it, it asks for it again.

It's probably a good thing that you are scared.

A BIOS generally should not be updated unless you are having issues and have a strong reason to believe that a BIOS update will resolve those issues.

Why do you want to update the BIOS?

I want to reinstall XP.

I set the computer to boot to the CD drive.

Then I got an error message saying "No boot record found" (referring to the XP Home CD) in the CD drive, so the XP CD will not boot (I guess).

Then I rebooted by turning off the computer and turning the computer on via the switch taking me to the desktop.

I clicked on the CD drive icon so I could get access to the XP CD.

I clicked on the "reinstall XP" option but then I got the message saying I could not reinstall XP because the version on my hard drive is newer than the XP version on my XP-Home CD.

I have Acronis so I can wipe the disc clean.

However, if I wipe disc clean and reboot with an Acronis emergency CD, what do I do after I reboot using the emergency CD?

If you already have the trial version of the Kaspersky product you want to buy, you can leave it installed and enter the licence key to activate it, simple as that. However, if you buy an edition different than the one you have in trial, then you'll need to uninstall the trial edition and install the edition you'll buy.

At the advice of just about everyone I finally have upgraded from IE which I've been quite happy with but which is apparently quot hopelessly outdated quot so I've been told repeatedly Modern Browser Problems even though it did what I wanted fine Sooo after spending a bunch of time trying to decide which direction to go I've installed both IE and Firefox I didn't even know you could run different browsers on the same PC Well admittedly I Modern Browser Problems just installed them yesterday but straight off they both have problems I don't know how Modern Browser Problems to fix IE is giving me grief as follows One- I'm getting a constant window popping up called quot view and manage your IE add ons quot Every time I close it it pops back up I don't know how to make it go away or what it wants me to do exactly Two- IE seems to have a pop up blocker problem Even when I turn the pop up blocker off it still continues to block every pop up even if I set it to the lowest setting In IE there used to be a handy option allowing you to select quot allow pop ups temporarily quot or even quot always allow pop ups from this site quot just by right clicking on the alert bar IE doesn't have this that I can see It does offer the option quot turn pop up blocker off quot but even if I select this option the pop up I need to use continues to be blocked For example one of my online banking sites security verification measures involves the use of a pop up menu where the user must select security information Well I can't log in to that banking site using IE because it will not allow those pop up menus to execute no matter what I do I even tried to add that site to my quot allowed sites quot but it still blocks all pop ups The wierd and frustrating thing is that it continues to block the pop ups even after I turn the pop up blocker OFF So that's been my experience with IE after my first day with it PS I just tried to select quot instant email notification quot from the menu below and the pop up blocker won't allow the menu to work even if I go and turn it OFF As for Firefox the immediate problems with that are One- it doesn't have a favorites menu It has something else called bookmarks but it changed the order of all my links and folders organizing them alphabetically by default This is not a huge problem of course I could probably get used to it Two- a bigger problem is that I use a program called Roboform where I store all my passwords and such so that when I visit various sites Roboform will pop up and offer to fill in logins and other forms automatically I have come to rely on Roboform to do this task and I rarely have to remember any user names or passwords in particular The handy thing also about IE is that it includes Roboform in the toolbar options so I can have it there handy at all times With Firefox however not only is Roboform not available as a toolbar the pop up function does not work either so basically Roboform appears to be incompatible with Firefox at least at first glance Further to that with toolbars Firefox only appears to have toolbars available Navigation and Bookmarks I've played with the customise feature but with no success as yet But the biggest drawback so far with Firefox is not being able to use Roboform These issues alone are enough to make neither of these browsers attractive to me if they cannot be rectified Any advice appreciated Cheers Kenny

I am running Win 8.1 on a Yoga 2 Pro convertible laptop with a 3200 x 1800 res screen. Although my DPI scaling is set to 250%, the Modern UI tiles and text (Start screen) are still too small. In addition, many of the apps show text that is too small, as well.

I did test the usb drive and it seemed to work although it didn't get past a black windows loading screen, I don't know if that is because my test software is not a proper virtual machine or something else.

I don't understand why Microsoft requires UAC to be enabled for me to use any Modern Apps or the App Store. I always turn off UAC and one of the programs I use, Object Rexx from IBM does not run correctly with UAC enabled. I find the UAC prompts intrusive and extremely annoying and as far as I'm concerned UAC is a total waste as after a very short period of time it becomes automatic to click OK without even reading the UAC notice.

Anyone know what the rational for this is? Is there a workaround for it? I'd like to play with some of the Apps but I'm not going to enable UAC to do it.

A:Why does UAC have to be enabled to use any Modern Apps

Hey Rich,

When UAC is disabled, the account basically runs elevated. Modern apps will not run in an elevated account by design for security purposes.

About all you can do is set your UAC settings to the bottom level.

However, whenever I run an app on the second screen, it seems to be larger than normal (zoomed in). I think this is a DPI issue, and Ive tried tweaking the registry but to no avail. I have all the latest drivers. The start menu only displays 4 rows, yet when i move the resolution down to around 1600, it shows 5 rows. Weird.

Hi,
Was just wondering what the difference was between modern and desktop IE 11.
I seem to run into problems when using the desktop version, and the problems can be fixed by using modern.

For example when creating a document in icloud.com, it will not let me create a new one in desktop IE but in modern it will.

When watching youtube videos some videos will not play in IE desktop without compatibly mode and when in modern they will play either way.

There are some other types of problems that are fixed as well.

So what is the real difference between the desktop and modern IE

"Modern UI"? Is that what they're calling it now? LOL. It's actually the "Atavistic UI", because its full-screen, modal program launcher is reminiscent of running Hotwire on my Atari ST circa 1988, except Hotwire didn't have anything as stupid as Windows 8's "4 Corners". And while I haven't read the article, bypassing the login to the "Modern UI" doesn't mean you never have to work with it. After installing programs, to pin programs to the taskbar, I would have to use the "Modern UI" or open the Start menu folders, which Microsoft has made hard to get to as a side-effect of getting rid of the Start Menu and its menu with "Open" and "Open All Users" commands for the "All Programs" menu item. My advice for people who recognize the ridiculousness of the "Modern UI" is to stick with Windows 7. Why spend money on a non-upgrade and then have to run various hacks to get it to a usable state? And then spend even more money to get Windows Media Center back, a part of Windows essential to anyone using CableCard, a part that hasn't even seen bug fixes much less improvements? Just because they're not thinking doesn't mean you have to stop.

I am planning on getting W8 really soon. I will be upgrading from W7. I personally like the look of the modern UI and I like the fact that you can categorize your applications into groups. The question I have is can you utilize custom icons on the modern UI?
For example, if I establish a group of apps on the modern UI titled "Games", would I be able to replace the default Batman Arkham City icon (smaller one in lower left) with one such as the Harley Quinn icon (much larger one) that you see pictured here?
Not a deal breaker, I'm just curious as to how much customization will be allowed in W8 via the modern UI.

I think I already know the answer but I wanted to know if there is a way to keep/launch ModernIE if you make something other than IE your default browser?

Although it has a mess for favorites I do like the simplicity of ModernIE and often prefer to browse using it from the Start screen. However, it does suffer from some rendering issues and sometimes I need to "view on desktop". I often find if ModernIE has rendering issues, so too will IE10. I would prefer that my default desktop browser be Firefox. When I set Firefox to my default, it kills any access to Modern IE and any IE icon leads to the desktop.

So is there no way to keep ModernIE as a browser if you have a different default browser? It isn't that I don't like ModernIE, I just want it as a secondary browser instead of my default.

A:Any way to keep Modern IE with another default browser?

Hello esspee,

Sorry, but no. Internet Explorer must be kept set as the default program to have the Metro IE10.


If it helps, you could switch to IE10 desktop mode from within IE10 Metro at anytime.
http://www.eightforums.com/tutorials...ktop-view.html
In addition, you can also set links to open to either IE10 desktop or Metro mode.

I updated from Windows 7 keeping apps and files etc. I had Chrome as the default browser and that basically turned off Modern UI IE, so I made IE the default (and unchecked the use desktop browser to open links) but it still won't open any links.

When I search for certain programs in the modern UI they don't come up, they don't even come up when I go on all apps. The only one I can open them is by going into C:\Program Files (x86) and finding the program in there. Can someone please help me? Thanks.

A:Cannot find certain programs in the modern UI

I know this isn't really helping but in some cases, they won't show up at all. I've been using Windows 8 on my laptops in beta form, RTM for over a year now and the sad truth is the modern UI is broken.
Example is I usually install SQL 2012 first, then VS 2010. There is no amount of searching display the results. In this example, SQL 2012 uses VS 2010 as a shell. Many things do. In order to open it up, I would have to search for SQL Server Data Tools in order to open up VS because doesn't that just sounds like visual studio?
Silly isn't it.
Do yourself a favor and install a start button
