My guess is when u uninstalled some of those visual basic programs, the uninstallation prosess damaged or uninstalled some vital file in your OS. I sugest you run a repair on your XP. I sure that will solve your problem.

You run a repiar by booting up from the XP-cd, after reading in all nessasary info XP will ask you if you want to reinstall your OS or if you want to repaire it, select REPAIRE, let xp do the job, reboot and you will be fine.

Good luck

How to Encode your VBS and JS files for secure website uploading


If you are still at Service Pack 2 then you can use Microsoft's own Script Encoder download it from HERE it's a command line version so after you have installed it you need to run the command prompt also make sure the Windows Scripting Host is started.

REMEMBER MAKE YOUR SCRIPTS "FOR YOUR EYES ONLY"

For both Visual Basic Scripts and JavaScript you will need to format the text in your script to look like this;

Replace your code goes here with your actual code when the encoder has been run then you will see that the <SCRIPT LANGUAGE= ********> will have changed to <SCRIPT LANGUAGE= ********.encode> and your code will be random characters.

The Syntax for the encoder from the command prompt is;

Recognized file extensions are .js and .vbs, which are changed to .jse and .vbe, respectively, after encoding, also these type of files can be decoded if you know what you are doing and therefore not totally hacker proof.


IF YOU HAVE SERVICE PACK 3 installed then this won't work at all so the best method is to use this VBS2EXE this is also a command prompt program you must make sure that the script that you want to convert is in the same root folder.

4f0fa54.jpg

When finished there will be a new file about 10 times larger then the script with the EXE file extension if you try to edit it all the code appears random this is the best method for encoding your scripts

If you want to do it ALL online and feel secure then you can do both VBS (VIsual Basic Script) and (JS) JavaScript using this website below but it is limited to 10kb per file

http://www.f2ko.de/ov2e/ov2e.html

If you create alot of batch files then I suggest that you also check out their BAT2EXE v1.5 this will convert CMD or BAT files into EXE files for web distribution you can also password protect and add a decompiler if required

I am not able to install the sprintsmartview to my dell studio 17 computer i keep getting an error 1721.


Since this error seems to reference the "Windows Installer" which is separate from the Installshield engine, I would probably try updating that:
The error by Windows Installer Package happens in Windows Vista because the of custom actions set in the installer package fail with missing permissions, involving custom actions that scheduled for both immediate or deferred execution. Visual Studio custom actions run while impersonating the installing user but only run with standard user privilege, and not with elevated administrator privilege as required in Windows Vista, if the msidbCustomActionTypeNoImpersonate bit is not set. Even though Windows Vista prompts for privilege elevation, however, only custom actions that are running in the Local System account get elevated correctly, while custom actions that impersonate as the current user do not.
Thus, the error usually happens on older versions of setup installer which install or uninstall programs meant for earlier versions of Windows operating system, such as XP, 2000, Me and 9x. However, if you're the programmer or developer for the installer program, probably you can do much to change the bit or installer sequence to solve the issue. But, there are still resolutions to fix the error 1721 that happens in Windows Vista, and probably has more than one one solutions or workarounds that users can try to get the software program installed.
Run an elevated command prompt with Run as Administrator option to start the installation
This method will probably allow most failed .msi installer to install/uninstall probably. Simply open an elevated command prompt with Run as Administrator setting, and then execute the .msi executable.

I cannot run Visual Studio 6 on Acer Aspire 5920


No I don't think that is the problem here, what kind of CPU do you have? Is it a AMD 64-bit processor? The application is triggering an invalid register in the system command processor. More than likely that version of Visual Studio had limited support for the AMD CPU... multi-core... x64... You can try updating Visual Studio with the last service pack offered or upgrade to something like Visual Studio .NET 2005 (VS 8.0). Microsoft offers the Express Versions for free online... I doubt you'll have a problem with a modern high-level compiler; you can also run a Registry Repair Tool to see if there are any invalid registry entries. I use Uniblue Registry Booster because they're a Microsoft Certified Partner.

ITunes Install Problems


Hi, are you using Windows Vista? If so, go to the Start Menu, click All Programs, then Accessories, then right click on Command Prompt and select Run As Administrator.

In the box that appears, type: CD c:\windows\system32\ and then press enter.
Then type: regsvr32 vbscript.dll and press enter, then click OK.

Close the command prompt and try reinstalling itunes.

Hope this helps.

Compiling and linking in vista


Vista's not my favorite yet, either.

There could be a million reasons why it won't run, many of which you won't be able to do anything about.

That said, perhaps turning off the UAC security, defining another user as an administrator, and trying to run Fortran might help. At least you won't be running into the whole "run as administrator" nightmare.

But, here's another thought...

If you're machine is powerful enough, maybe you could use Virtual PC or VMWare to build an XP machine where it will run.

(I cut my programming teeth on Fortran, a looong time ago!)

Unable to load dos prompt


This is probably caused by a virus. Try scanning it with your antivirus program, after you make sure your virus definitions are up-to-date. You can also run Trend Micro's Housecall if you have an internet connection. It is free. Just do a search for it, run it, and see if it finds anything.
Hijackthis is another good resource to try. Find a copy on the internet (it is free) then post your log that it makes on a website for others to help you find the bad files that are causing the problem. ASP free forums has this type of help.
FYI- another way to start the command prompt is to go to Start > Run > type cmd >hit enter. You can try to see if it starts this way, but I bet it is a virus or other malware.
