A Microsoft Visual C++ 2005 redistributable cannot be replaced by a Microsoft Visual C++ 2008 one. The binding would fail and any program that depends on the Microsoft Visual C++ 2005 redistributable will report "This application has failed to start because the application configuration is incorrect. So I think it would be best to leave them.

SOURCE: My D: drive is 99% full how do I free up disk space ?

Music, video and pictures use the most hard drive space. Store them on a disc or on line storage site. After the delete or removing as advised, defrag you hard drive. This should free up space. Get rid of any programs you don't use. As long as you don't delete hidden files you should be fine. Hope this helps. If you are using windows XP go to start, control panel add and remove programs and delete only the programs that you installed and remove only them.

SOURCE: "insert a disk into drive" even when pen drive is attached!

Hi,

Sounds like a failed circuit either in the USB adapter or in the drive itself. You will most likely require the help of a pro with this one if you need to get your files back.

If there's nothing crucial on it, recycle it and grab a new one, if there is important data on it, reply back with your Country, Sate, City and I will refer you to a nearby Pro.

Try formatting the drive. Assuming Windows XP, just open your "my computer" icon, right-click on the device and choose format. Be aware, formatting will remove any data you may have had on there previously.

If you're using another OS, or if it's an existing drive, please re-state your question giving further details (what OS, what you are trying to retrieve, etc).

Tip

Freeing up extra hard drive space


Are you out of hard drive space but can't find anything you'd like to remove from your computer?

Maybe you should try doing a Disk Cleanup.
Disk Cleanup will remove unnecessary files from your hard drive and if it hasn't been done on your system previously, free up a lot of space in the process.

To do a Disk Cleanup:

1) Go to My Computer.
2) Right click on your C drive.
3) Click Properties.
4) Click the "Disk Cleanup" button next to the visual representation of your hard drive space.
Disk Cleanup will calculate how much space you can free up and
what should be removed.
5) Under "Files to delete" select any files you don't want or need.
Generally all of the tabs can be selected and none of the files are
needed by your system. Below on "Description" you can view what
the files listed under each tab are for.
6) Once you have selected all of the files you want to remove click OK.
7) Disk Cleanup will remove the files from your system.
Disk Cleanup is complete.

Streets and trips 2011 will not install ?


I had a similar problem installing it on Windows 7 SP1. It may not be the same problem you are having on XP, but it is worth trying.
It seems that Streets and Trips 2011 will not install if the Visual Studio 2010 SP1 Redistributable Package is on the system.

  1. Through the control panel, uninstall the Microsoft Visual Studio 2010 SP1 Redistributable Package.

  2. Install Streets and Trips 2011.

  3. Download and install the Microsoft Visual Studio 2010 SP1 Redistributable Package. Don't skip this step, since SP1 gives you important security updates.

1. 486DX 66 megahertz (MHz) or faster processor (Pentium central processing unit recommended).
2. 16 megabytes (MB) of memory (24 MB recommended).

4. A full install of Windows 98 on a FAT16 drive requires 225 MB of free hard disk space, but may range from between 165 MB and 355 MB, depending on your computer configuration and that options that you choose to install.
5. A full install of Windows 98 on a FAT32 drive requires 175 MB of free hard disk space, but may range from between 140 MB and 255 MB, depending on your computer configuration and the options that you choose to install.
