    So, instead of entering data in a database like MS Access, you want to write the data on a text file is it?

    Am I understanding it right?

    If so, I will be able to help you out on that!!

Yaa you can use the Setup Wizard from your VB for your project. It will make a setup for your project and will put all the runtime required files in a same folder, with your project executable with a setup.exe file. Copy all these files in any device like CD,DVD, Flash memo etc, in a same folder. And run this setup on any computer to which you want to install it.

Then your project will run on that computer.

91 ford 351 windsor EFI. I want to carb it. What kind of distributor do I need?

Why? The EFI is a far more dependable and efficient system. Why would you want to take a step back and create more trouble than it's worth?

Low on memory and speed

If you want to upgrade your memory in your system, assuming this system has Internet access, you should visit the following website I use this website myself and it's an excellent memory website. It has this free scanning utility which scans your system and it tells you how much memory you have installed in your system, it tells you what type of memory you have in your system and it also lets you know how much memory you can install in total. I have 2 gigabytes in my own system and I can upgrade to a maximum of 4 gigabytes in total.

After visiting this website and using the scanning tool you will know where you stand. You can purchase the compatible memory that you need from this website. It's always best to go for the maximum amount of memory that your system can support. Watch this video on youtube also regarding the installation of RAM or memory in your system. Good luck. Andrew

The player ejects all of my dvds and now the discs won't play in my computer either. I never had a problem with any of the dvds before.

They could be warped, were they left somewhere warm? Direct sunlight? Try playing on in your computer that has not been put into the stand alone and see if it works, are you sure the stand alone isnt damaging the disks? Like a ring scratched in it?

Inability to write a dvd using HP dvd1040E

You need to use a program like Sonic/Roxio Easy DVD Suite. Using Nero, you most probably simply burnt a movie "file" to the DVD, and this is not something 99% of the stand-alone DVD players out there understand. A DVD must be in a certain format and "mastered" such that your stand-alone player will read it properly.

Thanks reseaux. It is not in domain. Its stand alone machine. I created one user in that with admin rights. And I don't know how it became deleted. But i can see the profile is still there. Now I want to...

you can copy the profile over the new profile :
- be sure to show hidden folder and system folder
- connect with another account created for the occasion
- copy the profile folder over the profile of your new user ID
- go to the property of the folder to set the full right for the new id, don't forget to reset rights for subfolders

I need a recovery disk for my Vista OS preinstalled on Acer Aspire T180. Can I create it by myself? (Recently my system crashed and I had to a tecnichian for using his recovery disk)

You can use a hard drive imaging program such as Norton Ghost to create a recovery DVD(s). Norton Ghost is available as part of System Works or as a stand alone program. Power Quest's Drive Image is also an alternative, however it is too old to be compatible with Vista - you could do a Drive Image outside of Windows - booting off the Floppy.

Copying pictures from computer to memory card

i have seen this error and i dont know why it does that. you may want to try buying a micro disk setup that fits into a sd adapter that will fit in your camera.

then you can take out the micro disk when full and put it on a usb adapter and plug right into a usb port.

i know this sounds like more work but so far i havent had a lock up on that or error yet. go to if you want to see the different adapters for the sd disk and micro disk and usb etc....

maybe this might help

File handling in visual basic 6.0

Following are a handful things u have to know about VB file handling

for more details...go to

File Handling (Generic)

While VB is working on a better approach (FileSystemObject), the built-in file handling statements are still the only way to access data other than through the VB database capabilities. Your skills in this area can make or break your ability to work with various formats. The OPEN/CLOSE statements are critical to success, but the LOF, EOF, and LEN functions are used even more often! It's also a given that you'll use the DIR function regularly.
Dir - Returns a filename that matches a pattern
temp$ = Dir ("*.*")
CurDir - Returns the current directory
temp$ = CurDir
MkDir - Creates a directory
mkdir ( "newdirectoryname" )
ChDir - Changes the current directory to a new location
chdir ( "newdirectoryname" )
ChDrive - Changes the current drive
ChDirve "A"
RmDir - Removes the indicated directory
rmdir ( "directoryname" )
Freefile - Returns an unused file handle
i = freefile
Open - Opens a file for access, locking it from other applications
open "filename" for input as #1
Close - Closes a file so that other applications may access it
close #1
LOF - Returns the length of a file in bytes
i = lof ( #1 )
EOF - Returns a boolean value to indicate if the end of a file has been reached
statusvariable = eof ( #1 )
Name As - Renames a file
name "filename1" as "filename2"
Kill - Deletes a file
kill "filename"
Fileattr - Returns attribute information about a file
i = int ( tempvariable )
GetAttr - Returns attributes of a file or directory
i = GetAttr("c:\windows\temp")
SetAttr - Sets the attributes of a file
SetAttr pathname, vbHidden
Reset - Closes all disk files opened by the OPEN statement
FileDateTime - Returns data file was created or last edited
FileDateTime ( filename )
FileLen - Returns length of file in bytes
FileLen ( filename )
FileCopy - Copies a file to a new name
FileCopy sourcefile, destinationfile
Lock - Controls access to a part or all of a file opened by OPEN
Lock #1
UnLock - Restores access to a part or all of a file opended by OPEN
UnLock #1
Width # - Set the output line width used by the OPEN statement
Width #2, 80
File Handling - ASCII-specific

While VB is working on a better approach (FileSystemObject), the built-in file handling statements are still the only way to access data outside of a data base. Your skills in this area can make or break your ability to work with various formats. The OPEN/CLOSE statements are critical to success, but the LOF, EOF, and LEN functions are necessary to build useful code.
Line Input - Reads an entire line of ASCII text
line input #1, tempvariable$
Write - Puts data in a file, with separators for the data
write #1, tempvariable$
Print - Puts data in a file with no separators
print #1, tempvariable$
Spc - Used in a print statement to move a number of spaces
Print #2, var1; spc(15); var2
Tab - Used in a print statement to move to TAB locations
Print #2, var1; Tab(20); var2
File Handling - Binary-specific

VB also support features which allow you to access a file on a byte-by-byte basis. The good thing about it is that you have more control, the bad thing is that you may have to write more code. Generally, a programmer will use the option (ASCII or Binary access) according to the least code he has to write. For binary access the Get/Put are equivalent to the Line Input and Print functions used in ASCII text file access. The big difference between the two is that binary access will read (Get) an exact number of bytes of data, and the reading can start at any byte within the file.
Get - Reads data from a file
get #1, anyvariable
Put - Puts data into a file
put #1, anyvariable
Seek - Moves the current pointer to a defined location in a file
seek #1, 26
input #1, anyvariable
Loc - Returns current position with an open file
i = Loc(#2)
