Tip

Cannot install a device driver by using its installation program in Windows...


ISSUE- You cannot install a device driver by using its installation program in Windows Vista
OVERVIEW-
When you try to install a device driver by using its installation program in Windows Vista, you are unsuccessful.
SYMPTOMS:
You may experience this issue if the following conditions are true:
• The driver uses an executable file-based installation program.
• The installation program was not designed for Windows Vista.
CAUSES:
Problems with executable file-based installation programs may occur if any one or more of the following conditions are true:
• The installation program is incompatible with Windows Vista.
• The driver is incompatible with Windows Vista.
• An issue occurs that is related to the user rights that are required to install the driver.
RESOLUTION:
To resolve this problem, run the driver installation program in compatibility mode. Or, use an account that has administrative credentials to run the driver installation program. You can also locate the .inf file for the driver, and then manually install the driver.
Important Before you use one of these methods, we recommend that you contact the device manufacturer or the driver manufacturer for more information about how to install the driver in Windows Vista.
To run the driver installation program in compatibility mode
Configure the driver installation program to run in Microsoft Windows XP Service Pack 2 compatibility mode. To do this, follow these steps:
1. Locate the executable file for the driver installation program.
2. Right-click the file and then click Properties.
3. In the PackageName Properties dialog box, click the Compatibility tab.
4. Click to select the Run this program in compatibility mode for check box, click Windows XP (Service Pack 2) in the Run this program in compatibility mode for list, and then click OK.
5. Double-click the executable file to start the installation program.
To run the driver installation program by using administrative credentials
Configure the driver installation program to run in the context of the Administrator account. To do this, follow these steps:
1. Locate the executable file for the driver installation program.
2. Right-click the file, and then click Run as administrator.
If you are prompted for an administrator password or confirmation, type your password or click Continue.
3. Follow the steps to install the driver.
To locate the .inf file and manually install the driver
Use Device Manager to install the driver. To do this, follow these steps.
Step 1: Locate the .inf file
Locate the .inf file that is included with the driver installation program. Generally, the .inf file is located in one of the following folders on the driver installation media:
• In the same folder as the Setup program.
• In a subfolder that is in the folder that contains the Setup program. Generally, the subfolder has a name such as Windows XP, Drivers, or WinXP.
If the driver files are packaged in a single executable file, you may be able to extract them or otherwise access them. To do this, use one of the following methods, as appropriate for your situation:
• Use a file compression program to extract the files.
If the driver files are packaged in a single executable file, you may be able to use a file compression tool such as WinZip or WinRAR to extract the contents of the driver package to a folder. The .inf file should be among the files that you extract.
• Use the Windows Compressed Folders feature to extract the files.
If you do not have the WinZip program or the WinRAR program, you may be able to extract the files by using the Windows Compressed Folders feature. To do this, change the file name extension from .exe to .zip. Then, use Windows Explorer to copy the files from the compressed folder.
• Extract the contents from the .cab file.
If there is no .inf file in the driver package, but there are one or more .cab files, you may be able to extract the contents of the .cab files.
Note This method is usually unsuccessful. Typically, these kinds of driver packages are created by using the InstallShield program. The InstallShield program uses a special .cab format that is not designed to be accessed by tools such as WinZip or WinRAR.
• Locate the files in the Temp folder.
If you still cannot access the installation files, try to locate extracted temporary files. Typically, files are extracted to a local Temp folder when you install a program. You may be able to view the contents of the driver package by examining the contents of the Temp folder. To do this, follow these steps:
1. Remove the contents of the Temp folder. By removing the contents of the Temp folder, you can more easily locate the temporary files that are created when you run the driver installation program. To remove the contents of the Temp folder, follow these steps:
a. Click Start and then click Computer.
b. Right-click the hard disk on which Windows Vista is installed, and then click Properties.
 In the Local Disk (DriveLetter) Properties dialog box, click the General tab, and then click Disk Cleanup.
 In the Disk Cleanup Options dialog box, click Files from all users on this computer.
If you are prompted for an administrator password or confirmation, type your password or click Continue.
 Under Files to delete, click to clear all the check boxes, click to select the Temporary files check box, and then click OK.
 When you are prompted to permanently delete the files, click Delete Files.
c. Use Windows Explorer to open the Temp folder. To do this, click Start
type %temp% in the Start Search box, and then press ENTER.
d. Start the driver installation program.
Note Some installation programs automatically delete the temporary files when the installation program exits. Therefore, leave the driver installation program running in the background.
e. Examine the contents of the Temp folder to locate the driver files.
Step 2: Manually install the driver
After you locate the .inf file for the driver that you want to install, manually install the new driver. To do this, follow these steps:
1. Click Start , right-click Computer, and then click Properties.
2. In the Tasks pane, click Device Manager.
If you are prompted for an administrator password or confirmation, type your password or click Continue.
3. In Device Manager, locate the device for which you want to install the driver.
Note To display hidden devices, click Show hidden devices on the View menu.
4. Right-click the device and then click Update Driver Software.
5. Click Browse my computer for driver software, click Let me pick from a list of device drivers on my computer, and then click Have Disk.
6. In the Install from Disk dialog box, click Browse, locate an .inf file for the device driver that you want to install, and then click Open.
7. Follow the steps in the Update Driver Software DeviceName dialog box to update the driver.

When istart the computer cant log in ,eventhough my user name and password is correct


A log-on loop on your Windows XP computer is a difficult situation where the computer never completes its boot cycle, restarting intermittently ad nauseam.


This issue indicates a major problem with the boot functionality of your XP system.

Restore the computer to working order by utilizing the repair and restoration utility on your XP system disk.

Insert the XP disk into the computer.


Restart the computer.

Press any key when prompted to boot from the disk.

Press "Enter" at the first screen and "F8" at the license terms.


Highlight the drive containing XP and press "R," repairing the operating system boot files and removing the log-on loop.

or

Windows XP sometimes has a glitch when you are logging in to your user account in order to boot the operating system.

The glitch logs you in and then logs you off the account.


This problem is usually caused by one of the programs that load during the computer's start-up.

Fixing this issue is a matter of ensuring that whatever program is causing the problem doesn't start up as soon as you start your computer.

or


Power on the computer and allow it to get to the user logon page normally.

There is no need to start up the computer in "safe mode."


Click the user who is having the issue and type in the user's password if one is set up.

Press and hold the "shift" button on your computer keyboard as soon as you see the tool bar load up at the bottom of the screen but before any other program has a chance to do so.


This stops any "Startup" program from running and logging you off.


Right-click the "Start" button on the bottom left of your screen.


Select "Explore" from the menu that appears.


Double-click "Programs" from the list on the left side of the window that pops up.


Double-click "Startup."


Select all the files inside the "Startup" folder by dragging a box over them.


Right-click anywhere on the selected files.


Select "Delete" to delete those files.


Note that deleting the programs from the "Startup" folder does not delete them from your computer.


All this does is make it so that these programs no longer start as your computer is starting so that any error in the running of the programs doesn't interfere with logging in to your account.


Hope this helps

    When I open an attachment-pdf for instance. or any attachment for that matter. The windows media player opens, with an error message saying it cannot open this type file. is this an adobe reader problem


    Sounds like your files are not assigned to the correct program.

    Open Windows Explorer and find a pdf file.

    Right click on it and choose Open With...

    Select Adobe Reader and check the box at the bottom that says:

    Always use the selected program to open this kind of file.

    Click OK.

    All pdf files should then open in Adobe.

    You can do the same with any other type of file by choosing the program you want to open it with.

    Hey mrbickham,

    In some instances, updating existing software or installing new programs onto your computer can cause issues such as what you have encountered. Fortunately, re-associating .PDF files with Adobe Acrobat Reader instead of MS Word 2007 may be all that you need to do. Most versions of Windows allow users to select the program they want to use to open any given file type, and can usually be done by following the steps I’ve provided below.

    1) Right-click on the .PDF file icon.

    2) Choose "Open With" from the menu that appears.

    3) When you highlight the “Open With” option a submenu should appear. Click on the link in this menu that says “Choose Program.”

    4) Another window should then open, providing a list of the available programs on your computer. Choose Adobe Acrobat Reader from the menu and check the box next to it.

    5) At the bottom of the page there should also be an option that says something similar to "Always use this program to open this file type." Make sure that this option is enabled.

    6) Click "OK."

    Hope this helps you out.

    Sincerely,
    Aaron
