W7 (all versions) probs with Windows Experience Indicator (WEI) run WINSAT formal


Hi
Just in case you have problems with any version of Windows 7 and running the Windows Experience index (WEI) from the control panel it will sometimes work in Command Level mode (and then you can see the results as per normal in the control panel).

Run a command prompt (in elevated mode) -- i.e select command prtompt from accessories, right mouse click and select run as administrator.

Then run the following command winsat formal

This often works where the "standard method" from the control panel fails.

Cheers

jimbo

Language capability in Win 7 versions?

In MS's description of the differences between the versions of Windows 7, under the Ultimate version they say, "switch between any of 35 languages", and suggest that if you need language capability use should use the "Ultimate" version. In my current "Home Premium" and "Professional" versions of Vista and XP, I have the ability install different input language keyboards in a language bar, that allows me to switch to say, a Japanese input keyboard. Will this capability continue in Home pPremium and Professional versions of Windows 7, or will I now need to buy the more expensive Ultimate version to be able to input (type) Japanese

Vista Windows Mail WORKS in W7 (both versions). Here's how

Hi all If you are like me and HATE webmail based stuff you can still use the VISTA Windows Mail in both 64 and 32 bit versions. (If you have OUTLOOK then you don't need to do this). Also an advantage with this is that you can get your old VISTA email into W7 without any problems. what you do is 1) Take ownership of your W7 program files or program files (x86) windows mail folder and delete contents. 2) copy the Windows mail folder from your VISTA machine to the same folder in W7. 3) create a shortcut link to winmail.exe in the folder. 4) set up / copy your email account settings. enjoy. (Note in the x-86 version use program files (x86) If you don't have the VISTA email program -- I can PM them to you -- not sure on attaching the files here as VISTA is a licensed microsoft program. Enc screenshot of Windows Mail in W7. cheers jimbo

Minor problems with W7 RC...

Here's a list of problems I'm having with the new W7 RC 64 bit & IE 8 ........ 1. CNN website won't show videos, works fine with Firefox. 2. CBS website video's won't enlarge to full screen, works fine with Firefox. 3. AVG wouldn't set up for me. Set up package wouldn't open up. 4. Avast A-V messed up my internet connection with Yahoo. Can't get on the internet untill I remove Avast and restore W7. 5. Nod 32 seems to be working but doesn't recognize my name and password and won't upgrade. 6. W7 doesn't shut down properly. It goes to the shut down page and stays there until I do a hard shut down. Other than the above problems, W7 RC has been working great for me, and seems to be rock solid.

User Interface problem with new Taskbar

The new taskbar has some great features, Aero Peek and Jump Lists are two things I really like. However, here is the big problem lets say I have a few chat windows open and they're all hidden behind another window (lets say Firefox) If someone sends me a message the chat icon flashes to notify me that a window requires my attention so far so good. Then I click on the flashing program icon and this is where the screw up is.... Rather than the application opening up onto the window that requires my attention, I'm presented with the aero peek thumbnail windows and have to visually see the one that is flashing and then click on the thumbnail to activate it! So from XP/Vista days, my chat window would flash in the task bar and I would click it and voila my chat window would appear! (unless of course I was using grouped windows, which I wouldnt because I would turn it off as its naff) So Win 7 has now made getting to your required window longer than it was before! good work microsoft, backward step in usability!!! The way it should work is Click the icon it loads the active window (or just shows all windows for that application) Hover over the icon and it shows aero peek thumbnails Is that too hard to do

Probs on laptop with X-64 build 7068. Gone back to build 7048.

1) BIG BIG problem -- any time I try to connect to a WIRED LAN I get COMSURROGATE Error -- flashes too quick to capture it and then the network manager just shows the really helpful message "Unspecified error" - screen shot attached. I MUST have LAN so this is a Showstopper. Device manager shows network card driver is working fine. 2) If you do an IPCONFIG with wired LAN system loops -- never comes out of network manager until re-boot. 3) Wireless card -- works but gives very "jerky" screens when browsing the Internet (might also be due to graphics / chipset problem). 4) Wireless only shows 54 mbs when router is 108 mbs. 5) Random crashes with INTEL 965 chipset drivers. 6) WEI crashes at Video accelerator detection ( sure this is due to Intel chipset drivers). I've had to revert back to build 7048 on the laptop. (On a desktop 7068 X-64 works fine no probs encountered). I probably could sort out the chipset drivers but the WIRED LAN problem is a 100% show stopper -- I MUST have a wired LAN connection working and can't always use USB / PCI express cards for this.

Download Firefox without using IE

So.... Microsoft will give you the option to turn off IE8 in W7 .... and this is agood news for me, as i never use IE, not even to download Firefox So here is how to get Firefox without IE in fresh install of windows 7 1. Run (as administrator) Command Prompt (just type cmd in start search, right click cmd icon and select Run as administrator) 2. Type ftp -A releases.mozilla.org 3. Now you can at any time list all folder files using dir command, then you can change directory using the cd command 3. Change directory to firefox version you want (example: cd pub/mozilla.org/firefox/releases/3.0.7/win32/en-US/) 4. Type binary 5.Now the fun part (get it), type dir to know the name of the app, type get "Firefox Setup 3.0.7.exe" to get it
