To check the Vista activation status is easy. Users can simply right click on “Computer” on “Start Menu”, and then click on “Properties” on the right click context menu. On “View basic information about your computer” page, scroll down to bottom, and Windows activation status is listed under “Windows activation” status.

Another way is open up the Command prompt {Start > Run > CMD} & then type in slmgr -xpr and then hit Enter.

Hope this solves your query :-)

Where i can get software for C Programing language and what is the software name...........?


STEP 1 : Download the Borland Compiler
https://downloads.embarcadero.com/item/24778
STEP2 : Run the setup program
By default, it should install everything to C:\Borland\BCC55

STEP 3 : Add the /bin directory to the system PATH

>C:\Borland\BCC55\bin\bcc32 OR >c32

After the setup program is run (step 2), a whole bunch of executable programs are placed in a new directory : C:\Borland\BCC55\Bin. This step makes it possible for the Operating System (Windows) to find these new executables by name. If you don't do this, then you will need to specify the full path to bcc32 every time you use it.

To do this on Windows XP
Bring up the Environmental Variables :

•Right Click "My Computer" ( Depending on how your system is set-up, "My Computer" is either on your Desktop or in your Start Menu )
•Select "Properties"
•Activate the "Advanced" Tab
•Click the "Environmental Variables" Button
Append ";C:\Borland\BCC44\bin" to the PATH variable (figure 3-2)

•Select the PATH variable under User Variables
Note: The PATH variable may appear under both System Variables and User Variables. This How-To changes the User Variable.
•Click the EDIT button below the list
•In the "Edit User Variable" box that pops up, move the cursor to the end of the Variable Value field
•Add a semi-colon ";" to the end of the current value
Note: If the value is empty, then you do not need to add a semi-colon
•Add the path "C:\Borland\BCC55\bin" after the semi-colon
•"OK" your way out of the dialogs

STEP 4 : Set up some configuration files
you should create a configuration file for the bcc32 program that tells it where to find its libraries and include files.
•The file should be named bcc32.cfg
•It should be placed in the same bin directory where bcc32.exe is located
(C:\Borland\BCC55\Bin)
•The contents of the file are the command line options for bcc32 stating the location of include files and libraries:
-I"C:\Borland\BCC55\Include"
-L"C:\Borland\BCC55\Lib"

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.

Your hardware manufacturer provides technical support and assistance for Microsoft Windows x64 editions. Your hardware manufacturer provides support because a Windows x64 edition was included with your hardware. Your hardware manufacturer might have customized the Windows x64 edition installation with unique components. Unique components might include specific device drivers or might include optional settings to maximize the performance of the hardware. Microsoft will provide reasonable-effort assistance if you need technical help with your Windows x64 edition. However, you might have to contact your manufacturer directly. Your manufacturer is best qualified to support the software that your manufacturer installed on the hardware.

File path trouble


what happens when you cancel through the file needed error....? it looks like setup is looking for USB drivers...you should be able to cancel the install of those drivers and add them later when windows is up and running.....failing that t looks like the drivers it is searching for are in the i386 directory....so instead of copying file from "globalroot\device\etc\etc you should point the path to the i386 directory on the repair disk....possibly D:\i386\

Installation path change


Change The Default Location For Installing Apps -----------------------------------------------
As the size of hard drives increase, more people are using partitions to separate and store groups of files.
XP uses the C:\Program Files directory as the default base directory into which new programs are installed. However, you can change the default installation drive and/ or directory by using a Registry hack.
Go to :-
- Start > Run
- Type “regedit” (without “” NOOBS!)
- Go to this directory… HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion
- Look for the value named ProgramFilesDir. by default,this value will be C:\Program Files. Edit the value to any valid drive or folder and XP will use that new location as the default installation directory for new programs.

Delete only operates within the system directories of the current Windows installation, removable media, the root directory of any hard disk partition, or the local installation sources.
Del and delete do not support replaceable parameters (wild cards).
Examples
Notice: Users who are running Microsoft Windows 95 and are used to deleted items going to the recycle bin need to keep in mind that deleting files from MS-DOS does not send files to the recycle bin. del test.tmp = Deletes the test.tmp in the directory that you currently are in, if the file exists.
del c:windows est.tmp = Delete the c:windows est.tmp in the windows directory if it exists.
del c:windows emp*.* = (* is for wild character(s)) *.* indicates that you would like to delete all files in the c:windows emp directory.
del c:windows emp?est.tmp = (? is a single wild character for one letter) This command would delete any file ending with est.tmp such as pest.tmp or zest.tmp...

You may also configure your outlook express to auto delete Emails by creating a rule for them.

CD burning


Is the Temporary file full with .tmp files? If so Windows can not accept the files from the Burner. Also make sure in your Burner Options that you have Checked the Option to Write Files to the Windows Tmp Directory, also check the file path and make sure that is is directing the burner files to the correct area.

Code error 0x80040606


Can you try the following to see if it works? 1st, Make sure QuickCam Version 11.0.0.1218 is installed. 2nd, Make a copy of the "C:\Program Files\Common Files\LogiShrd" to "C:\Program Files\Common Files\Logitech". After you make a copy of this folder, under C:\Program Files\Common Files you should see both a "LogiShrd" and a "Logitech" folder. Both folders should have the same content under them (ie. "LVMVFM" directory, "KAudP" directory, etc...) 3rd, Uninstall Logitech QuickCam Version 11.0.0.1218, and the QuickCam Drivers in Add/Remove programs. 4th, Reboot. 5th, Reinstall 11.0.0.1218 See if this works... Also, an alternative: instead of "uninstalling" Logitech QuickCam version 11.0.0.1218 in Step 3 above, you can try "Repairing" it from Add/Remove, and do not uninstall the drivers. Background: Working with a forum poster, we found a problem with a path-resolution function that maybe triggered by a Windows Update. Basically, it seems a Windows Update is added some extra folder attributes that causes the path resolution function to fail. When the path resolution failed, the code was set to failsafe to a "Logitech" directory instead of "LogiShrd" directory. This would also explain why these problems don't happen 100% of the time (because it seems the path resolution function doesn't fail 100% of the time) and the errors started appearing in 10.5 and above, when the Logitech folder was renamed to LogiShrd. Hope this helps!
