I loaded Check-it Fastmove on a laptop running windows XP. It will not start up and gives the following message: Could not start communication service. It worked fine on my old Desktop running windows XP.


I struggled with this same problem a few years back. I tried a couple of different compatibility modes for the fastmove.exe file and finally settled on Windows 98/Windows ME mode. When you right click on fastmove.exe and enable this mode in properties, you still aren't all the way there. When you try to run fastmove in this mode you will get another error message. Something about how it could not find a file called paralnk.vxd (actually the error message mispells the file name as paralink.vxd).

Well this file is only necessary for parallel port connections which I don't think anyone uses anymore (everyone should be using USB to sync). So I got to thinking that all the Fastmove program needed to see was a dummy file called "paralnk.vxd." And I was right. So this is what you need to do.

1. Find "fastmove.exe" in your program files, right click on it, click on properties, go to compatibility tab, enable "Windows 98/Windows ME" compatibility mode.

2. Go to your Windows\system32 folder and right click on some empty space. A dialogue box comes up. Mouse over "New" then click on "Text Document." After you have created the new text document, rename it to "paralink.vxd." You will get a warning message about changing the filetype from txt to vxd, but ignore it.

It doesn't matter that the new paralink.vxd is just a dummy text file. Fastmove doesnt use the file for anything. It just wants to see that it is there.

And that is how you get fastmove working on XP. It also works in Vista.

I sure wish they would update this program, but it got discontinued. Best sync program I ever used. I wish I knew who the actually developer was. I would contact them and see if they wanted to update it on an open source project.

How do i open a document which is saved on my desktop into Document Manager viewer. when i click the file am able to go to Document Manager Client.


If you go to the Document Manager client when you click the file, it sounds like the file is a .gml, which is a DM document link.
If it was e.g. a Word-file, it would've been opened just like Windows normally handles that filetype.

But, if you want to open document directly from viewer, launch the viewer from the DM program folder, e.g. C:\program files\ibm\db2 document manager\dmviewer.exe

dear ...,

please ensure your Windows-PC-system is working properly, then get an appropriate windows driver at:

copythe zip-file to desktop, unzip, install, reboot and replug your samsung YP-u1.

Now you will have to update the player's firmware(software) as by formatting it beforehand you have removed its software.

Download the firmware from:

proceed as advised above.

To avoid future issues, do remove(delete) mp3s
using the windows file manager only or get and install the Multimedia studio at:

what type of file is it that you are trying to open, sometimes you will see gobbledegook if your computer doesn't have the right program to handle a PC word processing and your mac doesn't have Microsoft Office installed. It also could happen with other type of file such as an image, video etc.



Open office can open a number of word documents:
http://porting.openoffice.org/mac/

Gimp for macintosh opens a lot of image files:
http://www.gimp.org/downloads/

also if you know what type of file it is, try adding an extension to it by placing a dot then follow it by typing the filetype. For a word document type in .doc for instance
