    Since the update to iTunes 12.4.1.6 I don't see my purchased music. When I try to import my old playlists I get a message saying that the library is not a valid iTunes library. Thus, thousands of songs and hundreds of films and I can't see or play one. I see my movie library where it is stored on an external hard drive, but my music was on my iMac.

    Where all the playlists gone and why didn't appear my entire music library? I checked the preferences and iTunes points to the correct folder, BUT only my music purchased appears...

    Same thing happened to me. I tried to replace iTunesLibrary.itl with an older copy, but that has not worked. Then I tried to return a version by resetting the Time Machine's iTunes app, but it would allow me to edit or delete iTunes because it is part of Mac OS X.

    So, I can not sync my iPad or iPhone, update all apps or find my music, that is, the course of the odf, still on my hard drive. ITunes just can't see the library.

  • When I try to install SP1a, I get a message saying that the file is corrupted.

    Need help, Im confused

    OK, so I have windows XP I am trying to install on my acer aspire 5100. Its an old copy that came with another computer. All I'm trying to do is to clean the computer clean and start over. Installation was successful, but when I try to install SP1a I get a message saying that the file is corrupted. I can't connect to the internet of him because the surrent version doesn't support WPA2. So im downloading on an external HD and try to run it from my computer. When you try to install SP2, it says that the file is not a valid Win32 application. Any help / ideas would be greatly appreciated, thanks in advance!

    Again, your best option is to order a set of Acer recovery disks.

    If you insist on doing things the way hard, then check first that download, you have to SP2 (you don't need SP1a because it is part of the SP2) is correct - check the hash of the file downloaded against one published (where you downloaded of?)

    If the hash is correct and then try running SFC/scannow from a command prompt - it may work, depending on how the software manufacturer set up the drive, but it is preferable to use in conjunction with a good OS disc, rather than the recovery disk.

    Hello

    Welcome to the Microsoft Community Forums.

    I see you've found an error "file does not have a program associated with it for performing this action" when you click office and recent places.

    1. Have you made changes on the computer before this problem?
    2. What is the full error message?

    I suggest you to report to us the screenshot of the Advanced window so that we can understand what exactly the situation.

    The average while you can try the following steps and check if the error reappears.

    Method 1:

    Step 1:

    Start the computer in safe mode and check the number.

    Some options, including the mode safe mode, start Windows in a limited State, where only the essential is started. If a problem doesn't reappear when you start in safe mode, you can eliminate the default settings and basic device drivers and services as a possible cause.

    Follow this link provided below to start your computer in safe mode.

    http://Windows.Microsoft.com/en-us/Windows7/advanced-startup-options-including-safe-mode

    Step 2:

    Put the computer to boot and check if the problem persists.

    To help resolve the error and other messages, you can start Windows 7 by using a minimal set of drivers and startup programs. This type of boot is known as a "clean boot". A clean boot helps eliminate software conflicts.

    How to troubleshoot a problem by performing a clean boot in Windows Vista or in Windows 7
    http://support.Microsoft.com/kb/929135

    Note: After troubleshooting, be sure to set the computer to start as usual as mentioned in step 3 of the KB article provided above.

    Method 2: I also suggest that you scan your computer with the Microsoft Security Scanner, which would help us to get rid of viruses, spyware and other malicious software.

    The Microsoft Security Scanner is a downloadable security tool for free which allows analysis at the application and helps remove viruses, spyware and other malware. It works with your current antivirus software.

    http://www.Microsoft.com/security/scanner/en-us/default.aspx

    Note: The Microsoft Safety Scanner ends 10 days after being downloaded. To restart a scan with the latest definitions of anti-malware, download and run the Microsoft Safety Scanner again.

    Important: During the scan of the hard drive if bad sectors are found, the scanner tries to repair this sector, all available on which data may be lost.

    It will be useful.

  • When I try to send an email to MYOB I get error message saying: "an email session could not be started. Please check your MAPI installation '.

    Error message: a message session could not be started. Please check your MAPI installation - sending email from MYOB

    When I try to send an email to MYOB I get error message saying: "an email session could not be started. Please check your MAPI installation '.

    How can I solve this problem?

    Hi all

    I have a workaround which is a little less boring that the patch "restart the PC": If you get the error where MYOB crashes when you try to send an e-mail, open Task Manager (ctrl-alt-del or right click on the start bar), then go to the "Processes" tab and close all instances of wlmail.exe using the button "complete the process".

    It seems that this error occurs if you have Windows Live Mail opened when you try and send emails of MYOB. If you then close WLMail after that get the error the process seems to never close, so you have to close it manually. If you send all your emails with closed WLMail MYOB it seems to be OK.

  • I click on the links in the email and get a box that says: "this file does not have a program associated with it for performing this action" and the link cannot be opened.

    Original title: problem e mail

    I click on the links in the email and get a box that says: "this file does not have a program associated with it for performing this action" and the link cannot be opened.

    Suggestions;

    1. make sure that your e-mail program is your default program.

    2. make sure that your Internet Explorer, or your main browser has all its faults.

    You can do both of the above by following these steps...

    Start button > right column, click default programs > click Set Your Default programs...

    1. click on your e-mail program > it doesn't say "this program has all its defaults"?
    If not, click on choose by default for this program > check all boxes below the list > click on save when finished.

    2 do the same as above for your Internet Explorer, or your main browser.

  • "this file does not have a program associated with it" message when you insert the sd card

    When I insert an SD card into my computer, I get a message that says f:\ that this file does not have a program associated with it... I know I can set default programs with the types of files in the Control Panel, but how do you recognize what to do when I insert an SD card in the computer?

    Windows 7
    The problem is caused by the automatic game changing options, this can sometimes happen when you install a new program, but they can easily be changed back. Click 'start' at the bottom left, go into "default programs" on the right side of the list (under computer / doc/images etc.) select "Change AutoPlay settings.
    You will find prob some of the sections had the new auto run program, just edit those you want (or all) "ask me every time", you will find that when you insert an sd card, you get the options normal download, copy, etc. as usual.

  • I get an error message saying that the mail was not sent when sending a PDF file in Outlook Express.

    Outlook Express 6

    Hello
    Recently, if I send a big PDF file via outlook, after attempting to send the files, I get an error message saying that the mail has not been sent. The files remain in the Outbox, but when I check with the recipient, they confirm that they have received the mail! This has only recently begun to happen. Any suggestions? Thank you

    Check: File | Work offline and in: reviews | Layout: uncheck the preview pane. Open the Outbox and delete the message.
     
    If that does not create a new box of sent, and sent items.
     
     
    Follow these steps for the Outbox and sent items after you move the messages you want to save to a local folder that you create.
     
    Tools | Options | Maintenance | Store folder will reveal the location of your Outlook Express files. Note the location and navigate on it in Explorer Windows or, copy and paste in start | Run.
