  • You will need to uninstall Microsoft Visual C++ Redistributable package to install the earlier version to Fix - It Professional 12.

    Original title: problems with Microsoft Visual C++ Redistributable (x 86)

    I try to install the Fix - It Professional 12 by Avanquest on my Windows XP machine.

    When installing, I get a message that says Microsoft C++ Visial Resditributable package (x 86) must be installed.

    When I click to try installing the Avanquest Software, it fails.

    If I go on the Microsoft Web site to try to downlad there from there, he fails again and I like that it's because I already have a newer version on my machine.

    Technical support Avanquest says that their software requires the old version.

    Is there a risk involved with uninstall what is on my machine and allowing the Avanquest software to install the version needed?

    If this is not the case, how does it do this so the rest of the installation of the software can continue?

    Thank you!

    Hi Jim,.

  • I can not connect my iPhone 6 s to my iTunes. She needs newer iTunes, as I already have the latest version!

    My iTunes on my Mac OS X 'Version 10.6.8' is already up-to-date.

    But when I plug my iPhone 6 s "iOS 9.2" of the i tunes it says:

    "The iPhone is useless because it requires a newer version of iTunes."!

    How is that, while I have the latest version!

    So, what's the problem? !!


    Mac OS X 10.6.8 cannot go as far as iTunes 11.4. To get the latest version of iTunes, you will need to upgrade your operating system.

    According to your Mac, you may be able to upgrade to El Capitan for free. http://www.Apple.com/OSX/how-to-upgrade/ to use El Capitan easily, you should have at least 3 or 4 GB of RAM, even though Apple says only 2 GB.

    Then you will have 12 iTunes and you can sync your iPhone 6.

    I have a satellite P200 with Vista Home premium SP1 and I need to install it on Visual Studio 2008.
    When the install wizzard starts it checks the compatibility of the computer and could not return this:

    "Setup has detected that this computer does not meet the requirements to install this software. These conditions must be met before you can install Microsoft Visual Studio 2008 Professional Edition - ENU

    Hi mate,

    Sorry, but just because one person in a MSDN forum has randomly the same machine you, does not mean that there is a related problem of the machine. Technically in comparing it s absolutely the same material as in an office and so why Don t you contact Microsoft technical support?

    It seems that it is certainly unwanted Microsoft and has NOTHING to do with Toshiba hardware or software, so please see MS support sites or give them a call, because it s THEIR software which won´t operate according to THEIR operating system.

  • Measurement Studio for visual studio 2008 8.1.2

    Hello, I installed Visual Studio 2008 and I use the Visual C++ 2008 him.  However, Measurement Studio 8.1.2 (which I have) do not natively connect to VC 2008.  I tried to manually add the box controls to tools... but namespace NationalInstruments.UI.WindowsForms seems not to be there?  Maybe I need to change something somewhere?  Any help would be most appreciated.


    If I understand correctly, you are trying to add references to assemblies .NET Measurement Studio for a C++ 2008 project. Is this correct?

    In this case, when you have created your project, you chose one of the models in the CLR (see screenshot) category?

    If so, then to add references to assemblies Measurement Studio, you go into the Visual Studio point Project menu > properties and select common properties > structure and references > add a new reference. MStudio 8.1.2 assemblies should appear in the list. If this isn't the case, you can navigate to them. They have installed by default on \Program Files\National Instruments\MeasurementStudioVS2005\DotNET\Assemblies\Current. Make sure that you add all required dependent assemblies (usually NationalInstruments.UI.dll and NationalInstruments.Common.dll).

    Also, you should be able to create a box Tools tab and add controls.

    If you try to do something else, could you give more details on exactly the type of project you want to create?

  • Visual Studio 2008: Default patterns in Server Explorer

    Visual Studio 2008, ODP.NET

    When I create a data connection in Server Explorer of Visual Studio, specification of the supplier provided by ODP.NET, provide a user name and password. When I develop this connection in Server Explorer, I don't see tables, packets, etc, that this user has permissions for only tables, etc., that this user is owner directly.

    Is it possible to display the tables that has permissions for the user, but does not have?

    Thanks in advance!


    Yes. I use the latest tools ODT and you just need to set up the filter for the collection of connections for your connection to include additional schemas you want to displayed objects. The tables in the other patterns for which the user has permissions will appear as .tablename (diagram)

    For example if I set a filter and add the SCOTT schema to my connection to HR and HR has permissions on the EMP table, I'll see (SCOTT). EMP appear under the tables for my HR connection.

    highlight the connection node you want moidy and choose filters or right-click on the specific connection node and choose Edit, then click the filters tab to change the file servers.
