    Yes, that's the first thing I tried. When that didn't work, I removed Autocad lite and reinstalled it and download and installed the 1A upgrade. I could not find any other upgrades on the autodesk web site for lite 2004

  • bdbbylyn1 Jul 23, 2008

    I installed Autocad LT 2004 on my wife's computer and got the same results. The program shuts down when I try to access a tool. Sometime not right away, but before I can get done drawing anything. Even just a straight line.

  • bdbbylyn1 Jul 24, 2008

    I tried what you suggested and got the same results. I suspect this may be caused by an upgrade or a patch from MS. It runs ok on an old NT 2000 machine but it' not connected to a printer and don't have any room to get it close enough to the printer. I really would like to use the Compaq I org. installed it on. It worked just fine for three years or longer on the Compaq. I don't mind experimenting as long as we can get back to where we were to start with if necessary.



    Thanks

    if you try it on another computer, that would clarify if the problem is only in your computer.



    would be a good test todo, try it on another computer if you have one nearby.

  • Ekse Jul 23, 2008

    could this be caused by a file of yours? a model?



    lets try something, press start -> run -> type in msconfig

    in msconfig see the startup tab



    then click on disable all, apply, ok, restart.



    try the autocad now. if the problem didn't get solved, open up msconfig again, and enable all the startup items back.

    I'm not sure what else to suggest, you can try uninstalling ms updates. you may want to google the update ID, for example " kb57329 + autocad " to find if other users have had problems with a spesific update and after removing it the program worked again.

  • Ekse Jul 24, 2008

    one thing you could also try is geting a pc with a fresh windows, if you have a extra laptop somewhere for example you could install a fresh copy of windows on it and see if the program works wouthout any updates installed, just the basic xp sp1 or sp2. which ever the case may be.

SP3 is the third and final service pack released for Microsoft Windows XP, and it eliminates many of the security holes that previously affected XP. While Microsoft recommends that users download SP3 using Windows Update, some users are unable to do so. However, it's easy to create a Windows XP SP3 installation CD; it requires only that you download the pack from the website and burn it to a CD-R/DVD-R using an ISO burner program.
Download the SP3 installation ISO by visiting the first link listed in the "Resources" section of this article. Save it to your Desktop. Download ImgBurn and save it to your Desktop. Double-click the installation executable for ImgBurn and click "Next." Follow the remaining onscreen prompts and click "Finish" to complete installation of ImgBurn. Insert a blank CD-R/DVD-R into your DVD drive. Open ImgBurn by going to "Start," "Programs" and "ImgBurn." Click "File," then "Browse for a source file." Navigate to your Desktop and select the SP3 ISO file. Click "Open." Click the blue "ISO to CD" button located on the bottom left of ImgBurn. The program will begin creating the Windows XP SP3 installation CD. This process may take anywhere from 10 to 20 minutes to complete depending on the speed at which the CD-R/DVD-R is being burned. Click "OK" once the CD-R/DVD-R has finished burning. You've successfully created a Windows XP SP3 installation CD.

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.

What to do Microsoft XP Service Pack 3 Error Message Access Denied. Step by step please I,m not to techie inclined.I tried to download after disabling anti virus as Microsoft suggested but still access...


Hello and thank you for using Fixya services.

From the sounds of your issue, it may be that you have malware or a trojan. You can run a scan using this free malware/antivirus protection. I am not sure which antivirus you are currently using but this one is free and has excellent reviews. You will need to uninstall your current antivirus protection first before installing this one.

Malware/trojans can disable your antivirus programs and make it look like everything is running smoothly. This would also block Windows updates. By running a thourall scan with another program, you can get the malware out. Even the best antivirus can be disabled.

Please let me know i I can be of further assistance

You may need to check to see which "service pack" you are currently on.

See below requirements:

System Software — Windows XP & Vista
  • Windows Vista Business or Ultimate Edition
    • 32-bit OS Installation Only
  • Windows XP Professional or Home Edition
    • With Windows XP Service Pack 2 or Service Pack 3

  • Not Supported:
    • Windows Vista 64-bit (any version)
    • Windows XP Professional x64 Edition
    • Windows XP Media Center Edition
    • Windows 98, Me, 2000, NT, 95, 3.1, DOS

  • Not Tested:
    • Windows Vista Home and Home Premium Edition
    • Although Windows Vista Home and Home Premium Edition have not been tested or qualified by Digidesign, there are currently no known issues with Vista Home and Home Premium 32-bit operating systems and Pro Tools M-Powered 7.4 compared to the supported Windows Vista Business or Ultimate Edition operating systems.

Windows Vista SP1
There are currently no known issues with Service Pack 1 for Windows Vista based on our initial limited testing and customer feedback. Although full qualification with all Digidesign products has not been completed, we do not recommend against updating to SP1, given the number of important overall system fixes in SP1. We do recommend that you backup your system and create a restore point before updating to SP1, should you encounter any problems after installing the update.

Savedump.exe error


Hi there
Savedump.exe is located in the folder C:\Windows\System32. The file is a Windows core system file. The program has no visible window. savedump.exe is a Microsoft signed file. Therefore the technical security rating is 4% dangerous.
Some malware camouflage themselves as savedump.exe, particularly if they are located in c:\windows or c:\windows\system32 folder. Thus check the savedump.exe process on your pc whether it is pest. I recommend Security Task Manager for verifying your computer's security.

If you want to get the full potential of 64bit processor then you will have install XP X64 and yes i'm sure SP3 will install.

Good luck and thanks for using Fixya!!
