Hi. Did you mean upgrade or downgrade? XP is older version than windows 7. Error you are getting means that the system cannot find the path specified. Are you installing the program using the the installer disk?

Why is pcouffin device for amd 64 bit systems showing up on my ASUS Laptop running Windows 7 64-bit with an intel dual-core i5 chipset?


It is a low level driver for CD's and DVD's supplied as part of some softwares.
See this page for ore information.
What is Pcouffin

It is not a virus, but check the file sizes mentioned. The message is misleading as it means X64 systems, not just AMD.

I loaded Check-it Fastmove on a laptop running windows XP. It will not start up and gives the following message: Could not start communication service. It worked fine on my old Desktop running windows XP.


I struggled with this same problem a few years back. I tried a couple of different compatibility modes for the fastmove.exe file and finally settled on Windows 98/Windows ME mode. When you right click on fastmove.exe and enable this mode in properties, you still aren't all the way there. When you try to run fastmove in this mode you will get another error message. Something about how it could not find a file called paralnk.vxd (actually the error message mispells the file name as paralink.vxd).

Well this file is only necessary for parallel port connections which I don't think anyone uses anymore (everyone should be using USB to sync). So I got to thinking that all the Fastmove program needed to see was a dummy file called "paralnk.vxd." And I was right. So this is what you need to do.

1. Find "fastmove.exe" in your program files, right click on it, click on properties, go to compatibility tab, enable "Windows 98/Windows ME" compatibility mode.

2. Go to your Windows\system32 folder and right click on some empty space. A dialogue box comes up. Mouse over "New" then click on "Text Document." After you have created the new text document, rename it to "paralink.vxd." You will get a warning message about changing the filetype from txt to vxd, but ignore it.

It doesn't matter that the new paralink.vxd is just a dummy text file. Fastmove doesnt use the file for anything. It just wants to see that it is there.

And that is how you get fastmove working on XP. It also works in Vista.

I sure wish they would update this program, but it got discontinued. Best sync program I ever used. I wish I knew who the actually developer was. I would contact them and see if they wanted to update it on an open source project.

Icuin36.dll wont load of can not be found


Download the file from this site http://www.dll-files.com/dllindex/dll-files.shtml?icuin36, unzip it and paste in into the system32 root folder. You'll have to do this using another pc. Mount your hard drive on another pc, locate the C:\windows\system32 folder and paste the unzipped file (icuin36.dll), turn off the Pc and remove your hard drive and again remount on your Pc, now Power on your system, it'll be ok. You can also do this without using another Pc, but you have to know how to use command prompt. Good luck.

It doesnt want to start it says what im describeing.


From http://support.microsoft.com/kb/194679:

Cause:
This behavior can occur if the Windows\System folder is missing or renamed, or if the PATH line in the Autoexec.bat file is missing or does not include the Windows\System folder.

To resolve this behavior, use the appropriate method:

Method 1 loadTOCNode(2, 'resolution');
  1. At the command prompt, type: dir vmm32.vxd /s If the Vmm32.vxd file is not found, you must install Windows 95 or Windows 98 again. If the Vmm32.vxd file is found, note the folder in which it is located, and then continue with step 2.

  2. At the command prompt, type the following commands, pressing ENTER after each command cd windows
    ren folder system
    where folder is the folder you noted in step 1.

  3. Restart your computer.

Method 2 loadTOCNode(2, 'resolution'); Using a text editor (such as Notepad), edit the Autoexec.bat file and add or modify the PATH line so that it includes the Windows\System folder. For example, add the following line to your Autoexec.bat file: path=c:\windows\system


Hope this helps,

To complete part one, follow these steps:
  1. Insert the Windows XP startup disk into the floppy disk drive, or insert the Windows XP CD-ROM into the CD-ROM drive, and then restart the computer.
    Click to select any options that are required to start the computer from the CD-ROM drive if you are prompted to do so.
  2. When the "Welcome to Setup" screen appears, press R to start the Recovery Console.
  3. If you have a dual-boot or multiple-boot computer, select the installation that you want to access from the Recovery Console.
  4. When you are prompted to do so, type the Administrator password. If the administrator password is blank, just press ENTER.
  5. At the Recovery Console command prompt, type the following lines, pressing ENTER after you type each line: md tmp
    copy c:\windows\system32\config\system c:\windows\tmp\system.bak
    copy c:\windows\system32\config\software c:\windows\tmp\software.bak
    copy c:\windows\system32\config\sam c:\windows\tmp\sam.bak
    copy c:\windows\system32\config\security c:\windows\tmp\security.bak
    copy c:\windows\system32\config\default c:\windows\tmp\default.bak

    delete c:\windows\system32\config\system
    delete c:\windows\system32\config\software

    copy c:\windows\repair\default c:\windows\system32\config\default
  6. Type exit to quit Recovery Console. Your computer will restart.
Note This procedure assumes that Windows XP is installed to the C:\Windows folder. Make sure to change it is a different location.

If you have access to another computer, to save time, you can copy the text in step five, and then create a text file called "Regcopy1.txt" (for example). To use this file, run the following command when you start in Recovery Console: batch regcopy1.txtWith the batch command in Recovery Console, you can process all the commands in a text file sequentially. When you use the batch command, you do not have to manually type as many commands. Part two loadTOCNode(3, 'moreinformation'); To complete the procedure described in this section, you must be logged on as an administrator, or an administrative user (a user who has an account in the Administrators group). If you are using Windows XP Home Edition, you can log on as an administrative user. If you log on as an administrator, you must first start Windows XP Home Edition in Safe mode.

  4. If you have a dual-boot or multiple-boot system, use the arrow keys to select the installation that you want to access, and then press ENTER.
In part two, you copy the registry files from their backed up location by using System Restore. This folder is not available in Recovery Console. Before you start this procedure, you must change several settings to make the folder visible:
  1. Start Windows Explorer.
  2. On the Tools menu, click Folder options.
  3. Click the View tab.
  4. Under Hidden files and folders, click to select Show hidden files and folders, and then click to clear the Hide protected operating system files (Recommended) check box.
  5. Click Yes when the dialog box that confirms that you want to display these files appears.
  6. Double-click the drive where you installed Windows XP to display a list of the folders. If is important to click the correct drive.
  7. Open the System Volume Information folder. This folder is unavailable and appears dimmed because it is set as a super-hidden folder.
  8. Open a folder that was not created at the current time. You may have to click Details on the View menu to see when these folders were created. There may be one or more folders starting with "RPx under this folder. These are restore points.
  9. Open one of these folders to locate a Snapshot subfolder. The following path is an example of a folder path to the Snapshot folder: C:\System Volume Information\_restore{D86480E3-73EF-47BC-A0EB-A81BE6EE3ED8}\RP1\Snapshot
  10. From the Snapshot folder, copy the following files to the C:\Windows\Tmp folder:
    • _REGISTRY_USER_.DEFAULT
    • _REGISTRY_MACHINE_SECURITY
    • _REGISTRY_MACHINE_SOFTWARE
    • _REGISTRY_MACHINE_SYSTEM
    • _REGISTRY_MACHINE_SAM
  11. Rename the files in the C:\Windows\Tmp folder as follows:
    • Rename _REGISTRY_USER_.DEFAULT to DEFAULT
    • Rename _REGISTRY_MACHINE_SECURITY to SECURITY
    • Rename _REGISTRY_MACHINE_SOFTWARE to SOFTWARE
    • Rename _REGISTRY_MACHINE_SYSTEM to SYSTEM
    • Rename _REGISTRY_MACHINE_SAM to SAM
These files are the backed up registry files from System Restore. .

Part Three loadTOCNode(3, 'moreinformation'); In part three, you delete the existing registry files, and then copy the System Restore Registry files to the C:\Windows\System32\Config folder:
  1. Start Recovery Console.
  2. At the command prompt, type the following lines, pressing ENTER after you type each line: del c:\windows\system32\config\sam

    del c:\windows\system32\config\security

    del c:\windows\system32\config\software

    del c:\windows\system32\config\default

    del c:\windows\system32\config\system

    copy c:\windows\tmp\software c:\windows\system32\config\software

    copy c:\windows\tmp\system c:\windows\system32\config\system

    copy c:\windows\tmp\sam c:\windows\system32\config\sam

    copy c:\windows\tmp\security c:\windows\system32\config\security

    copy c:\windows\tmp\default c:\windows\system32\config\default
    Note Some of these command lines may be wrapped for readability.
  3. Type exit to quit Recovery Console. Your computer restarts.
Note This procedure assumes that Windows XP is installed to the C:\Windows folder.

If you have access to another computer, to save time, you can copy the text in step two, and then create a text file called "Regcopy2.txt" (for example). To use this file, run the following command when you start in Recovery Console:
batch regcopy2.txt Part Four Click Start, and click All Programs. Click Accessories, click System Tools. Click System Restore, click Restore to a previous RestorePoint.

Cannot Open DSA.MSC file error


When you install the Administration Tools Pack on a computer that is running Windows XP Professional x64 Edition, the Active Directory Users and Computers MMC snap-in file (Dsa.msc) is installed in the %windir%\Syswow64 folder. Additionally, the computer's file system maps the Active Directory Users and Computers MMC snap-in to the following path: DriveLetter:\%windir%\Syswow64\Dsa.mscHowever, the Active Directory Domains and Trust MMC snap-in incorrectly specifies the path of the Active Directory Users and Computers MMC snap-in as follows: DriveLetter:\%windir%\System32\Dsa.mscWhen the computer's file system tries to locate the Dsa.msc file from within the Active Directory Domains and Trust MMC snap-in, Mmc.exe is run. Mmc.exe is run because the Dsa.msc file is associated with Mmc.exe. When Mmc.exe is run, it uses the following path to locate Dsa.msc: DriveLetter:\%windir%\System32\Dsa.msc DomainPathAfter the Mmc.exe command is run, the Active Directory Domains and Trust MMC snap-in tries to locate the Dsa.msc file. Because the Dsa.msc file does not exist in the %windir%\System32 folder, the error message that is mentioned in the "Symptoms" section is generated.

To resolve this problem, manually copy the Dsa.msc file from the %windir%\Syswow64 folder to the %windir%\System32 folder.

DVD X Copy Install Problem - Unable to find path


What you would need to do is go to www.driverguide.com and search for pcouffin.vxd and copy it to c:\windows\system32\iosybsys. Then it should install fine.

The following file is missing or corrupted; C:\WINDOWS\SYSTEM\VMM32.VXD type the name of the windows loader (e. g., C:\WINDOWS\SYSTEM\VMM32.VXD)


That is a special file, created during Windows installation. Every computer uses a different VMM32.VXD file, so you can't simply copy one from another system and expect it to work.

If you can't find that file by searching the system in DOS, you could wipe the drive and reinstall Windows again, or do a repair install, installing Windows on top of itself. That should force the creation of a new VMM32.VXD file, and that problem should be history.

If you DO find the file somewhere on the HDD through a DOS search, copy it into the Windows\System folder, then reboot the system.
