How come I am not able to install on my computer,


An example of a path would be c:\windows\programs\redbook
Everything starting at the c is the path. Change the destination to a folder/path that is shorter than the current one. The path starts at the hard drive then goes from folder to folder until it reaches the destination.

Tip

An error message informs you that you cannot move or rename the Documents and...


To specify a different folder for the Documents and Settings folder during installation, follow these steps: 1. Run Winnt.exe or Winnt32.exe by using the /unattend option, and then insert the following entry into the Unattend.txt file, where z:\foldername is the path and folder name you want: [GuiUNattended]
ProfilesDir = z:\foldername 2. Install Windows. The path that you included in the Unattend.txt file is used instead of the default Documents and Settings folder.NOTE: This method does not relocate any key Windows components. Use this method if you require only user-specific data to be moved.

After you install Windows XP, to specify a folder other than the Documents and Settings folder for a particular user's data, follow these steps: 1. Identify the user's profile path. You can identify the profile path either by user security ID (SID) or by user path settings. The user SID method is preferred. To identify the user's profile path by the user SID loadTOCNode(3, 'moreinformation'); a. Use the Getsid tool from the Windows Server Resource Kit to obtain the SID. At a command prompt, use the following syntax: getsid \\ComputerName UserName \\ComputerName UserNameFor example: getsid \\windowsxp joedoe \\windowsxp joedoeThe results look something like this: = The SID for account WINDOWSXP\joedoe is S-1-5-21-1708537768-1993962763-1957994488-1003 b. After you obtain the user SID, start Registry Editor (Regedit.exe or Regedt32.exe), and then select the user SID under the following registry key: HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\ProfileList To identify the profile path by the user's path settings loadTOCNode(3, 'moreinformation'); a. Log on to the computer as the user, and then type set at a command prompt. Note the setting for UserProfile, and then quit the command prompt. b. Log on to the computer as an administrator. c. Use Registry Editor to add the UserProfile setting to the following registry key: HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\ProfileList d. Click the registry key, and then click Find on the Edit menu. e. In the Find box, type the value of the UserProfile setting, and then click Find Next. 2. In the HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\ProfileList registry key, change the ProfileImagePath value to reflect the new path that you want to use, and then quit Registry Editor. 3. Log on to the computer as the user, type set at a command prompt, and then verify that the path has changed.
Moving the entire folder loadTOCNode(2, 'moreinformation'); NOTE: This method does relocate key Windows components. Use this method only if you require the Documents and Settings folder to be moved or renamed and you cannot use the Unattend.txt file to change the name during installation.

To specify a different folder for the entire Documents and Settings folder, including key system components, follow these steps: 1. Log on to the computer as an administrator, and then create a new folder. 2. In the current Documents and Settings folder, on the Tools menu, click Folder Options, and then click the View tab. 3. Under Advanced settings, click Show hidden files and folders, and then click to clear the Hide extensions for known file types and Hide protected operating system files (Recommended) check boxes. 4. Click OK. 5. Click and drag all the folders in the Documents and Settings folder to copy them to the new folder, except for the folder for the currently logged-on administrator. 6. Log off and then log back on, using a different administrator account from the one that you just logged off from. 7. Open the Documents and Settings folder again, and then copy the profile of the administrator that you just logged off from to the new folder. This extra step is needed because you cannot copy the profile of the account that is currently logged on. 8. Log off the computer, and then again log on to the computer as an administrator. 9. Start Registry Editor, and then click Find on the Edit menu. 10. Type documents and settings, and then click Find Next. 11. For every registry key or value that contains the original path, replace the value data or rename the value or registry key to the new path.IMPORTANT: You must complete this change in the registry for every instance of the original path, or your computer may not start. It is imperative that you update all registry keys and values with the new path.

12. Restart the computer. You can now safely remove the original Documents and Settings folder.

Path length too long


The Windows error is complaining about the length of the full path. The full path includes the entire path as well as the file name. If that 'Full Path' is longer than 256 characters, then you may run into this error.

What path do i select to install rainbow six 3


You can let Rainbow Six choose the default path. It is probably something like...

c:\\Program Files(x86)\Ubisoft\

Otherwise, you can use that path. The path really doesn't matter as long as the application knows where to find all of it's relevant files.

Error message 1324. The path My Pictures contains an invalid character. Version 2.5.2.36 Can I remove? Can I update so my Quickbooks program can update? Need help please!


There are 3 possible reasons why you are getting this error message:

1. An invalid character in QuickBooks installation path.
2. An incorrect path setting in the Windows registry.
3.Insufficient hard drive space available to install the QuickBooks program.

To fix this problem, please do the following:
  1. Restart your computer, and reinstall QuickBooks.
  2. Confirm that at least 2.5 GB of disk space is available for installing QuickBooks (Quickbooks 2010 requires 1.5GB of disk space):
    1. Double-click the Computer (for Windows 7 or Vista) or My Computer (for Windows XP) icon on your Windows desktop.
    2. Note the amount of free space shown in the window next to the drive letter where QuickBooks is being installed:
      • If the amount of free space is less than 1 GB, free up disk space before installing QuickBooks or install QuickBooks on a different drive.
      • If the amount of free space is greater than 1 GB, proceed with step 2.
  3. Remove invalid characters from the QuickBooks installation path:
    1. Right-click the Windows Start button and select Explore.
    2. Navigate to the path shown in the error:
      • If there are non-alphanumeric characters in the name of any folder in the installation path, right-click the folder and select Rename to remove them, and then reinstall QuickBooks.
      • If there are only alphanumeric characters in the installation path, proceed with step 3.
  4. Create a new user in Windows to rewrite any Windows registry settings that may be causing the error and log in as that user to install QuickBooks.
Note: You must be logged in as a Windows administrator or as a member of the Administrator group to add a new user.
If this solution does not resolve the issue, you can read discussions and post messages and questions relating to your issue on the Intuit QuickBooks Community site for free, or you can contact a technical support agent for additional guidance. Fees may apply.

How do I find the sound unc path to file download


I don't know what 'Sound' unc path you are referring to, but if you want to find the UNC path to a networked share, it is \\computername\sharename
So if your computer is named say Johndoe and you have already mapped a drive to the folder you are wanting to access called itunes share then your UNC path is going to be \\Johndoe\itunes share
Good Luck!

Hitachi Easy Hard Drive (external)500GB


My guess it's a new user navigation/nomenclature issue.

If this is a Windows machine, then do another backup and before you start it, write down the PATH to where it "says" it's saving your data.

If it is indeed saving to your "F" drive (not "file"), then open "My Computer", which will show you all the different drives on your computer.

Then compare what you wrote down, and follow that path to your file.

If you can't FIND an "F" drive, than it may be referring to a removable drive that isn't connected to your machine (do you use a removable FLASH drive, or external hard drive?).

It always helps to remember with computers, it's about following a path, if you get off the path, start over, and pay closer attention to what you are doing, and you'll find your way eventually.
