How Win764() will not work if I install programs elsewhere other than the default Program Files folders?

The reason for this question is that I want both 1.) Learn more about Win7 64 bit works, as well as 2.) understand the scope of customization possible.

In any case, first of all, what this scenario: what happens if I create a subfolder in each of the two Program Files folders? Say, in the (x 86) program, I create a subfolder called Programs (x 86). Or another name, whatever and say that I do the same thing for the Program Files folder. So, what happens if instead of installing all my software back into the default directory Program Files or program (x 86), what happens if I start to install in these subdirectories to the place?

Everything works fine? I heard that these two Program Files folders have assignments to special access for security reasons. As I start working on these issues, the same security structure would be preserved, correct? Second, everything will work correctly not only wise, but in terms of features? I know that each of the Program Files folders also has its own common files folder. If I make my method, installed programs to put their files in the Common Files folder correctly, and then get back them properly when necessary?

Finally, I would also like to know out of curiosity, what would happen if I don't use the program files directories at all and instead started to install things in a completely different directory. But that is less an issue for me at the moment. I just want to know if what I have set out above would be good or not.

Thank you!

Hi StormRyder

This issue is beyond the scope of these level consumer forums.

I would recommend that you post on the Technet ITPro Windows 7 forumsfollow-up questions. Advanced on these forums users are more familiar with these types of settings, and may explain some of the common pitfalls you may encounter, as well as how to be ready in case something goes wrong.

I hope this helps.

Thank you for using Windows 7

    There is no such thing as disabling Lightroom 5.7. Just uninstall the software.

    Looks like you have installed 6 Lightroom on two of your computers (including the MacBook Air). In this case, you must find and launch Lightroom 6 (not Lightroom 5.7 or any other version of Lightroom 5) on the MacBook Air and then in the menu help, select logout.

    There are two different versions of Flash. ActiveX for IE version and the version of the Plugin for other browsers. Have you installed the correct version? This forum software is not thing that Flash is installed for Firefox or the Plugin is disabled.

    1. download the file of configuration Flash from here:

    Adobe Flash - Plugin version.

    Save it to your desktop.

    2. close Firefox using file > exit

    Then check the Task Manager > processes tab to make sure that firefox.exe is closed.

    {XP: Ctrl + Alt + Delete, Vista: Shift + Ctrl + ESC process tab =}

    3. then run the Flash configuration from your desktop file.

    4. run Firefox and test your installation here: https://www.adobe.com/software/flash/about/

  • How to create a window with its own window border other than the local system window border?

    How to create a window with its own window border other than the local system window border?

    For example, a border: a black line with a width of 1, then a transparent line with a width of 5. Inside, it's the content pane.

    In JavaSE, there seems to be for the JFrame paintComponent() method to realize the effect.

    I can't see what you're trying to do now: it's a little trickier. You need stage.initStyle (StageStyle.TRANSPARENT), and I think you have to imitate the transparent part of the border by the presence of a second vessel inside the root container, properly positioned.

    Something like:

    import javafx.application.Application;
    import javafx.application.Platform;
    import javafx.event.ActionEvent;
    import javafx.event.EventHandler;
    import javafx.scene.Scene;
    import javafx.scene.control.Button;
    import javafx.scene.layout.AnchorPane;
    import javafx.scene.layout.StackPane;
    import javafx.scene.paint.Color;
    import javafx.stage.Stage;
    import javafx.stage.StageStyle;
    
    public class CustomBorderExample extends Application {
    
      @Override
      public void start(Stage primaryStage) {
      AnchorPane root = new AnchorPane();
      root.setStyle("-fx-border-color: black; -fx-border-width: 1px; ");
    
      StackPane mainContainer = new StackPane();
        AnchorPane.setTopAnchor(mainContainer, 5.0);
        AnchorPane.setLeftAnchor(mainContainer, 5.0);
        AnchorPane.setRightAnchor(mainContainer, 5.0);
        AnchorPane.setBottomAnchor(mainContainer, 5.0);
      mainContainer.setStyle("-fx-background-color: aliceblue;");
      root.getChildren().add(mainContainer);
    
      primaryStage.initStyle(StageStyle.TRANSPARENT);
      final Button closeButton = new Button("Close");
        mainContainer.getChildren().add(closeButton);
        closeButton.setOnAction(new EventHandler() {

  • After a fresh install of XP SP3, does not work my previously installed programs. What should do?

    Had a problem when the power is gone, just as I have to boot my system. It resulted in a corrupted system file. Tried to fix it by using the original installation of Windows XP SP3 CD, but arrived at a position where Windows wanted my password but then refused to recognize. Repeated the process twice more just to be sure, and then made a new installation instead. Well it worked for me get into Windows, but now none of my previously installed programs want to run. Well, so far I tried Office 2010, work, Kaspersky Internet Security 2012 and Adobe Reader without success. None of these or any other program on the machine come in the list of all programs and I am betting that goes into the Windows Explorer, select all the executable files of installed programs and click on run will fail for them the same as it has for the ones I've tried so far. Is there a solution that will enable Windows to recognize programs that were already installed when I ran the new XP installation?

    I am at a loss to explain how, if you were doing a re-install of XP destructor, the Program Files folder is intact. Unless maybe you left in the current file system intact before beginning installation (I've never tried this option), but even in this case, it would be wise to start with a folder Program Files new and clean install.

    Assuming that all your data is backed up and verified OK as saved, re-setup (with format) could be your best option. You could make a rod for your own back continuous you, at this time.

  • Web site will not work with Flash Player but no other Flash available pepper.

    Question - I try to use a locator tool to find a job with a company but if Flash Player is used, it does not work and issues a warning that pepper Flash Player should be disabled. Problem is the Flash I have now only got pepper. How can I fix it? Site issue: http://jobs.timewarnercable.com/content/location/


    Type of computer - PC computer for help. Victory 8.1, Chrome.


    Action - zero, previous versions of Flash has a pepper and non-poivre one, it has pepper.

    I was perplexed.  I thought that you were using some kind of third-party tool, and the link got a bit distorted when you posted.

    This error is raised by the content of Time Warner.  Chrome dropped NPAPI in favor all the time, so the advice of TWC is no longer valid.  Their solution of having users reconfigure their browsers to view their site is also a good choice.

    You will need to use another browser to access their site.

  • Vista will not work to open/run programs and some files, especially if necessary administrator auth.

    Hello

    I ' v got a computer toshiba laptop Vista x 32. Last week he began to do a lot of strange things that are quite annoying.

    First of all, when it is connected to two networks wireless or ethernet, explore and chrome, open and run fine but the network in the tool bar icon has a red x on it. When I try and open the network and sharing Center, it crashes.

    This causes the following problem. He now does open kind of folder on the drive hard or Administrator program needs approval. Previously, I would get the dialog box and screen gray, but now he is nothing when clicks or opens a new window but crashes. Other programs such as itunes does not open, but the office is strangely very well...

    Also, when online any kind of e-mail attachment or program download does not work. Shockwave flash blocks on bbc iplayer, but youtube works. Cannot open the PDFs online or

    Everything works normally in safe mode and from there, I ran Defrag, disk cleanup, auditor of errors and a 2 system restore nothing doesn't. I also tried the software audit tool microsoft malicious who found nothing.

    Is there anything else I can do? Any advice would be greatly appreciated!

    First check if your drivers are working properly, go to control panel, then Device Manager, then make sure that all of your drivers. Avoid any sign of danger on them if there so try to update or uninstall, or back the driver to resolve the problem.

    Then, make sure that your system is clean. using the analysis

  • How can I Zoom in other than the default %? I want to do 85% on some pages and can't get there.

    I do not like the new feature tools, like the better toolbar. I can zoom in is no longer the necessary %, is only in whole numbers of dozens. Sometimes to do between setting of to get the pages to display right and be legible. Can not know how to do this. You cannot click in the box to 100% and change it, only the + and - buttons.

    He was previously a control that allow you to dial in any size that you liked? I don't know who... he could control add-on? To see if you have still this control, you can use customization feature and optionally drag it to your toolbar.

    • button '3-bar' menu > customize

    For the function integrated + and - buttons, you can change the steps. By default, the enlargement options:

    1.1 => 110%
    1.2 => 120%
    1.33 => 133%
    1.5 => 150%
    1.7 => 170%
    2 => 200%
    2.4 => 240%
    3 => 300%
    

    The default mitigation measures are:

    .9 => 90%
    .8 => 80%
    .67 => 67%
    .5 => 50%
    .3 => 30%
    

    To add additional steps, you can modify the list in Firefox about: config preferences editor. Here's how:

    (1) in a new tab, type or paste Subject: config in the address bar and press ENTER. Click on the button promising to be careful.

    (2) in the search box that appears above the list, type or paste the zoom and make a break while the list is filtered

    (3) double-click the preference toolkit.zoomManager.zoomValues and edit it as you wish. Since it's a little difficult to read, you can copy it to a word processor or another program where you can zoom text, modify it, and then copy the revised version.

    For example, to add 85% as a step, you should insert it here:

    .3,.5,.67,.8,.85,.9,1,1.1,1.2,1.33,1.5,1.7,2,2.4,3
    

    Note #1: After having OK'ing this change, it will come into force in any new windows that you open. Existing windows/tabs seem to remember the implementation at the time you opened the. (To move a tab into a new window, click on the tab on the tab bar > move to the new window.)

    #2 Note: If the preference becomes a mess, you can right click > reset to restore the default value.
