  • Device driver USB Apple Mobile and iPhone download updates does not work

    I just got a new phone and I am trying to restore from a backup of my old. The problem is that my iPhone is not showing in iTunes. It appears in the 'My Computer' section as a device. There is a problem with the 'Mobile USB Device Driver' that I couldn't solve. Whenever I plug my iPhone, the said driver installed in vain. I tried to restart my computer, download iTunes more and try the solution where I change the driver to a section of the common media-files-Apple-Mobile device drivers, and when I do that, it says "Windows has determined the software driver for your device is up to date", although the small box yellow exclamation beside it. The choice of 'Roll Back' for the driver already installed is there, so I chose to see what happened. This allows the driver to "Mobile Device" appears, where my iPhone now charge when I plug it into the computer. I go to this device and try to install, and it refers me to a screen that says "Windows found driver software for your device but encountered an error when you try to install it" and then lists the mobile device as the problem driver. I think I can be "go back" to a bad driver, but I can't find out how to download a driver that is correct and working.

    I updated my phone to the new operating system, as well as some downloaded the latest version of iTunes available.

    If your computer is pre-installed with Windows 7:
     
    New computers coming often pre-installed with Windows 7 have what is called a recovery partition. This is used to reinstall an operating system in the case of a system failure. To access it, you need to start when you start your computer by pressing a function key. This can be either F1, F2, F9, F10, F11, F12 key DEL or tab.

    In general, look at the screen during the POST for a tip for what is possible.

  • Business Inkjet 2300 driver for Windows 7, Windows Update does not work

    Bought an inkjet 2300 for my office, but the driver does not work for Windows 7 (64) and despite what all the forums and guides say, Windows Update don't shoot the pilot.

    There must be a way to get the driver directly - any help would be much appreciated. I don't want to take the camera for what seems like it would be an easily solved problem.

    Thank you!!

    Hello

    The drivers should be downloaded automatically,

    You can also download the drivers caraa of the Microsoft Update catalog from the following link:

    Most probably the 3rd result should work on your operating system, depands on your proccessor type, for any SLA question try the result 5:

  • After VO extension update the page for some fields on a page does not work

    After VO extension update the page for some fields on a page does not work. The message arrives the data are saved, but the values is the same as that of the former. And this happens with only a few fields, other fields are working well.

    Any pointer to solve problems will be of great help.

    Thank you in advance.

    Check if the standard VO has a RowImpl and it overrides the methods getter and setter for fields that is affected. If so, you will need to call super() in your custom extended RowImpl to call this logic.

    See the link below for how to call great from the extended RowImpl.

    Johny tips: OAF: transient attributes not getting filled extended vo

    Example Code:

    public String getAttribute1() {
       //return (String) getAttributeInternal("Attribute1");
      return super.getAttribute1();
     }
    

    If the above did not help, attach standard and custom VO files. We can have a look.

  • After recent, iPhone, 6, update, Windows, Explorer, does not work, see, iPhone

    I installed the latest update required for my iphone ios 6 a few days ago, and now when I try to download pictures from my iphone to my PC (via USB connection), the PC does not see the iphone.   iTunes sees it yet, but windows Explorer does not work.  It seems that some setting has been broken through the update of ios.  A way to solve this problem?

    Restart the computer and the iPhone. Unlock the iPhone before connecting it to the computer. Any change?

  • Update of Windows XP does not work, how do I stop the Office 07/10 updates?

    For these last months, the web version of Windows Update does not work with XP. When you click on the button for Express or custom installation, the stalls of system looking for updates. So I had to put windows to warn me of updates instead of going on the site, but now it keeps wanting to download me updates for Office 2007 and 2010, but I do not own these products (I use Office 2003).  I could not stop, even when I ticked the box does not warn me of those more. Finally I went to the site and found an option to disable Microsoft Update, which said I could always download the updates to the site, but I can't because he's trying to force me to re - download Microsoft Update.

    What is going on?  I don't like the new Microsoft Update as it keeps nagging me to download updates for the products that I have not yet owned. How can I update Windows XP only?  This is very fustrating.

    Hi Steve,.

    Follow these steps.

    Go to Start | Settings | Control Panel and double click on automatic updates. I'll explain why later.

    Then, tick the option at the bottom to turn off automatic updates, and then click apply/OK.

    Then, go to start, run, copy and paste this command and click OK: services.msc

    In the list of Services, you can see Background Intelligent Transfer Service ?

    Here's a pix what he looks like.

    If it is not listed, follow these steps to register the BITS service.

    Open the Windows search tool, copy / paste the following text, and then click Search: qmgr.dll

    Research should show this file in the following locations:

    C:\Windows\System32
    C:\WINDOWS\ServicePackFiles\i386
    C:\WINDOWS\system32\bits

    You might only see qmgr.dll in C:\WINDOWS\system32 depending on your configuration.

    Then, go to start, run and copy/paste: regsvr32 qmgr.dll and click OK

    Do the same with this file: regsvr32 qmgrprxy.dll

    Reboot the system and then copy / paste this command into the field run:
    %windir%\System32\rundll32.exe setupapi, InstallHinfSection DefaultInstall 132 %windir%\inf\qmgr.inf

    If you are prompted to insert the Windows installation CD, ignore this and in the dialog below, replace the path C:\WINDOWS\ServicePackFiles\i386

    If you could only see the file in C:\WINDOWS\system32, change the path to that instead.

    Restart the PC and then go to the Services and you should be able to see BITS in the list.

    Double click on it and then on the general tab, click the Start button to start the service manually. This is just a test to make sure that it works correctly.

    If you get 2 error: cannot find the specified file, click on start, then run again and copy / paste the following command, and then click OK:
    Tracking Add HKLM\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\BITS\Parameters /v ServiceDll /t REG_EXPAND_SZ /d %windir%\System32\qmgr.dll

    Reboot again and try once more to start the PIECES. It should work fine now, but in the unlikely case where it fails again, run the following command, and then press ENTER:
    Reg add HKLM\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\BackupRestore\FilesNotToBackup

    Reboot once more and then do the following.

    Go to this link and install the IE8 December Update:
    http://www.Microsoft.com/en-GB/download/details.aspx?ID=41404

    If you use IE7, use this link instead:
    http://www.Microsoft.com/en-GB/download/details.aspx?ID=41442

    Finally, go to the Windows Update site and you should be able to download normally.

    If this is the case, re - enable automatic updates in Control Panel.

    Hi my NameJoel,

    See the methods mentioned below and check if that helps.
     
    Method 1:
    How to troubleshoot an installation fails on Windows XP Service Pack 3
    Note: Antivirus software can help protect your computer against viruses and other security threats. In most cases, you should not disable your antivirus software. If you need to disable temporarily to install other software, you must reactivate as soon as you are finished. If you are connected to the Internet or a network, while your antivirus software is disabled, your computer is vulnerable to attacks.
     
    Note: A firewall is software or hardware that checks information coming from the Internet or a network. Then the firewalleither blocks information or allows information to pass to your computer. If the information is blocked or throughdepends spent on your firewall settings. A firewall can prevent malicious software (such as worms) to access your computer through a network or the Internet. A firewall can also help stop your computer from malware sent to other computers. Windows XP, Windows XP Service Pack 2 (SP2) and Windows XP Service Pack 3 (SP3) include firewall software.

    Steps to take before you install Windows XP Service Pack 3
    Note: Disable your antivirus software is not usually recommended, some software antivirus prevents certain system changing files. This can cause the Windows XP SP3 installation failure. To make sure that you manage to install Windows XP SP3, temporarily disable your antivirus software, including any third-party antispyware and firewall program. To do this, right-click on the icon for your antivirus program, and then click on disable. The antivirus program icon typically appears in the bottom right corner of the computer screen.
     
    Important: Make sure that you enable the antivirus software after you install Windows XP SP3.
     
    Hope this information helps.
