  • running outlook 2010 on hp pavilion dv7 - cannot open hyperlinks in e-mail messages.

    Windows 7 Edition using Home Premium.  Outlook 2010 doesn't let me open the hyperlink in e-mail messages.



    This happens mainly because of the Internet Explorer.Try this microsoft fixit and see if it helps:

    What happens when you try? Error messages? If you save attachments, first of all, they open? Do you have a PDF Reader installed?

    Adobe Reader

    Foxit Reader

    Adobe is more "well known", but Foxit is much more compact and my personal preference.

  • It cannot open hyperlinks in outlook. Could but can't now.

    The title says it all really: basically, I can't open a hyperlink in any E-Mail using Outlook. I can if IE is the browser but not if it's Firefox.
    For more information: my OS is Windows 7. Outlook is 2003.

    I can't imagine a reason for Adobe Reader (standalone, outside Firefox) to work as Outlook or a URL shortcut does not work.

    Sometimes, users report that Firefox displays a new tab or a new window without loading the link, but it sounds as if on your system, nothing happens at all. Is - this important if Firefox is running or not before you click the link?

  • Cannot open media in first Pro CC

    One of our users has a problem in first Pro CC at the opening of SOME media files. The files will be opened very well in OTHER parts (AE, media) if it disables the portion of cloud of the software files opened correctly in the first. Windows 7 Pro, the latest version of CC and Facilis storage media. Any ideas?  Here is a screenshotPremiere stream issue.JPG

    The "fix" seems to be off the Cloud Manager application.  He stopped the user to start with Windows yesterday morning and since then has been the success of the media loading.

    That makes the Cloud Manager actually?  If it's just for updates I won't have to worry about it being disabled.

  • Cannot open. Files EXE in Windows 7

    I already found the solution because some of the files are read as a .exe file when it downloaded programs including, but not limited to Google Chrome, QuickTime, Lenovo a recovery key, etc.. However, I hope this Lexmark S515 download reads not the .exe and I have to put a .exe at the end of the file to read in an .exe file because IE 11 it is not read correctly, but thank you to those who responded with solutions to this problem.


  • Cannot open the MOV premiered on Windows (dvh2?)


    I have some problems opening some MOV on Mac files on my PC with Windows (win 7).

    I think that mov files are in the "dvh2" codec, but have not found anything on this codec.

    Is it possible to open these mov files in windows?

    Those are probably the DVCPROHD clips, I'm guessing that created through newspapers and transfer. Discover calibrated {Q} DVCProHD decode; It's a QT for Windows component that allows you to play DVCPROHD encoded MOV in QuickTime Player and QuickTime compatible applications. There is a demo, you can try to see if it works for you.

    (Note: the reason why you need is that Apple does not have a Windows version of DVCPRO50 or DVCPRO HD to QuickTime decoding component release.) Third-Party suppliers stepped up and did the dirty work.)
