Fatal error kernel32,dll skype


Delete the existing Skype files first. It's denying the download over top of an existing file (file already exists).

Tip

Copy files even with errors and many more


You might encounter something like "Access Denied", "The file has beentransferred to another location or deleted" or some other errors whilecopying your files.

This is a typical problem to those Windows XP users. So what they do isjust recopy all the files again but they will exclude the one with theerror.

What if you have virus that you are in random folders that can't be moved/copied?
What if your old files that you don't need have random access denied files?
What if and what if?

How to continue copying files and exclude the files with error?
Here's how you do it.

What is xcopy?
Copies files and directory trees.
How to use xcopy?

XCOPY source [destination] [/A | /M] [/D[:date]] [/P] [/S [/E]] [/V] [/W]
[/C] [/I] [/Q] [/F] [/L] [/G] [/H] [/R] [/T] [/U]
[/K] [/N] [/O] [/X] [/Y] [/-Y] [/Z] [/B]
[/EXCLUDE:file1[+file2][+file3]...]

See the REFERENCE below for the detailed meaning

Step 1.
Click Start then click Run...(Or Simply Press Windows key+R)

Step 2.
type "xcopy [source] [destination]"

Sample 1: (For single File ONLY)
xcopy C:/Windows/System32/userint.exe E:/Backup

Sample 2: (For folder including their sub folders)
xcopy C:/Windows E:/BackupWIndows /S
or
xcopy C:/Windows E:/BackupWIndows /E

Sample 3: (For Continue Copying even Error Occurs)
xcopy C:/Windows E:/BackupWIndows /S /C

Sample 4: (For allowing copying encrypted files)
xcopy C:/Windows E:/BackupWIndows /S /G

Note: You can combine the rules/options that you like.

That's it! you now have a way to copy files that are protected, accessdenied, or even those that are encrypted. Hope This tip helps you. ^^

REFERENCE:

What are the use of the options?

source Specifies the file(s) to copy.

destination Specifies the location and/or name of new files.

/A Copies only files with the archive attribute set,
doesn't change the attribute.

/M Copies only files with the archive attribute set,
turns off the archive attribute.

/D:m-d-y Copies files changed on or after the specified date.
If no date is given, copies only those files whose
source time is newer than the destination time.

/EXCLUDE:file1[+file2][+file3]...
Specifies a list of files containing strings. Each string
should be in a separate line in the files. When any of the
strings match any part of the absolute path of the file to be
copied, that file will be excluded from being copied. For
example, specifying a string like obj or .obj will exclude
all files underneath the directory obj or all files with the
.obj extension respectively.

/P Prompts you before creating each destination file.

/S Copies directories and subdirectories except empty ones.

/E Copies directories and subdirectories, including empty ones.
Same as /S /E. May be used to modify /T.

/V Verifies the size of each new file.

/W Prompts you to press a key before copying.

/C Continues copying even if errors occur.

/I If destination does not exist and copying more than one file,
assumes that destination must be a directory.

/Q Does not display file names while copying.

/F Displays full source and destination file names while copying.

/L Displays files that would be copied.

/G Allows the copying of encrypted files to destination that does
not support encryption.

/H Copies hidden and system files also.

/R Overwrites read-only files.

/T Creates directory structure, but does not copy files. Does not
include empty directories or subdirectories. /T /E includes
empty directories and subdirectories.

/U Copies only files that already exist in destination.

/K Copies attributes. Normal Xcopy will reset read-only attributes.

/N Copies using the generated short names.

/O Copies file ownership and ACL information.

/X Copies file audit settings (implies /O).

/Y Suppresses prompting to confirm you want to overwrite an
existing destination file.

/-Y Causes prompting to confirm you want to overwrite an
existing destination file.

/Z Copies networked files in restartable mode.

/B Copies the Symbolic Link itself versus the target of the link.

/J Copies using unbuffered I/O. Recommended for very large files.

The switch /Y may be preset in the COPYCMD environment variable.
This may be overridden with /-Y on the command line.

What is error 4? and how to solve.balance is stuckedup


What does particular error code mean "General failure". Particularly for "General failure", the SFTP server should provide you more details, that you will see next to "Error message from server". Unfortunately, SFTP server shipped with OpenSSH (or Sun SSH) does not. That is, why you see there just "Failure" (very useful).

Some situations when OpenSSH (Sun SSH) server issues this useless error message:

a. Renaming file to name of already existing file.

b. Creating directory that already exists.

c. Moving remote file to different filesystem (HDD).

d. Uploading file to full filesystem (HDD).

e. Exceeding user disk quota.


thank you

I can't help you directly, but I can direct you to the manufacturer's website, where you can find further Contact information for technical assistance, and under Tech Support, a link to the tech library page where you can research instruction manuals and download software, etc.

I am unable to install the update for Versacheck 2002 - message is "Can't create output file: C:\Program Files\G7PS\VersaCheck 2002\_Update\ZUpdate.exe" I followed the instructions from...


1. Check that the path exists, i.e., you have a folder named: C:\Program Files\G7PS\VersaCheck 2002\_Update\ 2. Check that you have permissions to create a file there, e.g., create a simple dummy.txt file in this directory with notepad (you can delete the test file after that)

As soon as i turn my camera on a message appears saying "naming error" and it wont let me take pictures or view already taken pictures.How do you fix this?


The file could not be created because there is a file with the same name as the directory that the camera is attempting to create, or the highest possible file number has already been reached. In the Rec. menu, please set [File No.] Reset to [On]. After you save all the images you wish to retain onto a computer, format the SD card. Please note that formatting will erase all the existing images and other data. This information is based on Canon support for your digital camera.

We have three login accounts with ub funkeys. Mine is the only one that will save progress. How do I fix it?


First time I hear from that problem. Please check this path.

c:\program files\u.b. funkeys\radica game\data

you should see a folder named System (dont touch it) and 1 folder for each account you have created, inside the folder there is always a file named profile.rdf, if the file doesn't exists delete the folder and create a new one (in the game).
If the file exists maybe it's corrupt (sorry) delete the folder of the not working account and create it again (from the game enviroment).
If this still not working, copy your working account to some other place in your PC. Remove the software(uninstall), reinstall it a, update your software using the patch001.exe file int he official site and copy again your saved files (with your previosly saved games) in the right place. Hope I can help you.

Want to have all my skype info on another computer with my same name lunar_module dont want lunar _module 1 or any other name


Just install Skype on the other computer, and enter your existing username and password.
When installing, it asks you is you already have an account. If you can't find it, skip creating an account and enter in your username and password.
Otherwise, if you already have created an account, click "Skype" in the top left hand corner, next to Contacts, and click "Sign Out".
Enter your username and password.

Cannot uninstall or install HP scanjet G2410


I tried all the "decent" uninstall solutions like running HP's Level 1-4 Uninstall batch files. HP's installation software still insisted that parts were already installed. Then, with the scanner connected, the installation software got into competition with Windows also trying to install the driver. The reinstallation was no good. Solution Center wouldn't even start, preposterously announcing that it couldn't find the scanner!

When you have a reliable clone of your c:\ drive you can try daring solutions. Such as this:
1. Search the c:\ drive for files and folder with "Hewlett" or "HP" in their names. Kill them all.
2. Search the registry for keys with "Hewlett" visible or buried. Kill them all.

After 1 & 2, reinstallation worked smoothly. And my computer still works! The only evidence of the violence is an undeletable file 3963d.rbf now in c:\Config.Msi. I will report back if serious computer problems arise.

The point is that manual uninstall is possible and none of the elements are in hidden places. Someone else can determine whether both file and key deletions are necessary and exactly which ones.

Windows 2000 and Windows XP recovery console syntax
Deletes one file.
del [drive:][path]filename
delete [drive:][path]filename
[drive:][path]filenameSpecifies the file to delete.
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.
