WinHlp32.exe will not install. "Update does not apply"

I'm unable to open the help option in the PSpice Student program. I tried download winhlp32.exe but the installer said "update does not apply to your system. Any ideas?
What I have to do is to import files system in PSpice library (files .bsm I think)


Hi TomAndz,

You may be unable to open the help (.hlp) files that require the Windows Help program (WinHlp32.exe).

First cross check what is the file format of the files in the library for PSpice

You will need to check the options in this menu of specific program associated with the search parameters.

Check the link if you need help with the below .hlp files
I can not open Help files that require the Windows Help program (WinHlp32.exe)

You can contact the software vendor for more information about the option to search within the software.

I hope this helps!

  • vCAC Designer (cloudutil.exe) will not launch after upgrading to 6.1

    After having recently upgraded 6.0.1 to 6.1, we are unable to launch the vCAC GUI Designer (cloudutil.exe). The error stated at the launch of the designer customer is as follows:


    We tried the following already without success:

    1. We have a ticket open with support. A sev 1 for two weeks now. The ticket is with genius. Substantial quantities of newspapers were provided to support.
    2. The designer has been improved in 6.1 installation. We followed the procedure to uninstall the old client of Designer, download a new of the IaaS VAMI and install it.
    3. We get the same error, no matter which client or server is installed on the client of the designer. We tried the IaaS server itself (Windows Server 2008 R2 SP1) and several client machines (WIndows 7 SP1).
    4. We use self-signed certificates. Not that it should matter as it was working before the update 6.1 with self-signed certificates, but we validate the cert is in the store of confidence on all computers where the client attempts to run from.
    5. We tried to remove the client, ensuring that the customer directory no longer exists and reinstall the client.
    6. Also tried running Setup of customer "as an administrator".
    7. Validated the client installation program (DesignCenter - Setup.exe) is not "blocked" by right-clicking on it-> properties-> unlock.
    8. Tried to launch the Designer customer (cloudutil.exe) in different compatibility modes.
    9. We are able to run the query in the CLI commands by using cloudutil.exe. This confirms that he is able to talk to the back end. We can even list of all our stubworkflows and see the various revisions of them, but you can't change/see the stubworkflows using the CLI (this must be attached to a separate... note).

    We noticed the DynamicOps.Repository Assembly in the error references Version after the upgrade. Some assemblies is not upgraded / replaced as part of the upgrade, it appears, so it's possible, it's normal, but it stood out.

    Unrelated to this, we are having a problem with the workflow specific heel after the upgrade as well and you have another position open about it here that Workflow Stub WFStubBuildingMachine fails after upgrading to 6.1

    Because we cannot enter the designer customer, we are not able to solve the problems, which means that we are down hard. We would prefer not to roll back even if we have good backups, as if no one else knows this problem then VMware will probably not initially get of it, and we will not be able to upgrade to 6.1 down the road with confidence.

    Has anyone seen this or something similar? Even if you do not, you have any suggestions to try?

    In case someone else runs into this problem, here is what has been done to work around this problem:

    • Open the cloudutil.exe.config file located in the Design Center directory is installed in.
    • Add the following block of the code highlighted in red between the two lines in black.

    • Save the file and close.
    • Restart the Client to the designer.

    This will tell the designer Client to use only 6.1 assemblies at the launch. The customer refers to 6.0 assemblies during the launch after the upgrade which are not present on the file system longer, so it's the only way known to work around him. The development isn't sure why old assemblies are always referenced, but they are reproduced it in their laboratory.

  • Windows media player will not apply changes to databases of media

    Arrgh.  Windows media player has great potential but is so volatile.  I already reset the program and now I find I have to re - enter old info on the songs I copied analog.  the final problem is that it does not apply the information from the databases of media.  Looks like it's going to make the changes - but it doesn't.  Is there a way to reset the protocols for the application of media without resetting my together huge database.  hoping you can help.

    What type of file in your music files (MP3, WMA, WAV...)?

    To resolve this problem, delete the Windows Media Player database. To do this, follow these steps:

    Usually, also, had to stop the WMP network sharing Service before you rebuild the library. Click Start, type services.msc in the search field and press ENTER. In Services, locate the Windows Media Player Network Sharing Service. If its status is started, double-click the service, and then click stop.

  • Script will not apply the paragraph style


    I'm new to scripting in InDesign (CS3), and I'm trying to understand why the scipt below does not apply a style in the following text file? :

    < ASCII-WIN >

    < ParaStyle: Heading 1 > who are we? < ParaStyle >:

    For ease of reading, I have shortend the text file to just two lines.

    The script that I use to open and to format the text file is:

    Create a new document.

    myDocument var = app.documents.add ();

    Set the units of measure and the origin of the rule.

    myDocument.viewPreferences.horizontalMeasurementUnits = MeasurementUnits.points;

    myDocument.viewPreferences.verticalMeasurementUnits = MeasurementUnits.points;

    myDocument.viewPreferences.rulerOrigin = RulerOrigin.pageOrigin;

    Get a reference to the first master spread.

    var myMasterSpread = myDocument.masterSpreads.item (0);

    Get a reference to preferences on the margins of the first page in the Master spread.

    var myMarginPreferences = myMasterSpread.pages.item (0) .marginPreferences;

    Now set up the page margins and columns.

    myMarginPreferences.left = 4; = 70;

    myMarginPreferences.right = 70;

    myMarginPreferences.bottom = 78;

    myMarginPreferences.columnCount = 2;

    myMarginPreferences.columnGutter = 14;

    The margins of page and columns for the right-hand page.

    var myMarginPreferences = myMasterSpread.pages.item (1) .marginPreferences;

    myMarginPreferences.left = 48; = 70;

    myMarginPreferences.right = 70;

    myMarginPreferences.bottom = 78;

    myMarginPreferences.columnCount = 3;

    myMarginPreferences.columnGutter = 14;

    Adding Master Page items

    var myMasterSpread = myDocument.masterSpreads.item (0);

    var myLeftPage = myMasterSpread.pages.item (0);

    var myRightPage = myMasterSpread.pages.item (1);

    var myLeftFooter = myLeftPage.textFrames.add ();

    myLeftFooter.geometricBounds = [70, 742, 728, 528];

    myLeftFooter.textFramePreferences.firstBaselineOffset = FirstBaseline.leadingOffset;

    myLeftFooter.contents = SpecialCharacters.autoPageNumber;

    myLeftFooter.parentStory.characters.item (0) .pointSize = 11;

    myLeftFooter.parentStory.characters.item (0) .leading = 14;

    var myRightFooter = myRightPage.textFrames.add ();

    myRightFooter.geometricBounds = [48, 742, 728, 542];

    myRightFooter.textFramePreferences.firstBaselineOffset = FirstBaseline.leadingOffset;

    myRightFooter.contents = SpecialCharacters.autoPageNumber;

    myRightFooter.parentStory.characters.item (0) .pointSize = 11;

    myRightFooter.parentStory.characters.item (0) .leading = 14;

    myRightFooter.parentStory.characters.item (0) .justification = Justification.rightAlign;

    Adding master text frames

    var myLeftPage = myMasterSpread.pages.item (0);

    var myRightPage = myMasterSpread.pages.item (1);

    var myLeftTextFrame = myLeftPage.textFrames.add ();

    myLeftTextFrame.geometricBounds = [70, 70, 714, 528];

    myLeftTextFrame.textFramePreferences.firstBaselineOffset = FirstBaseline.leadingOffset;

    myLeftTextFrame.textFramePreferences.textColumnCount = 3;

    myLeftTextFrame.textFramePreferences.textColumnGutter = 14;

    Add a label to make the image easier to find later.

    myLeftTextFrame.label = "BodyTextFrame";

    var myRightTextFrame = myRightPage.textFrames.add ();

    myRightTextFrame.geometricBounds = [70, 48, 714, 542];

    myRightTextFrame.textFramePreferences.firstBaselineOffset = FirstBaseline.leadingOffset;

    myRightTextFrame.textFramePreferences.textColumnCount = 3;

    myRightTextFrame.textFramePreferences.textColumnGutter = 14;

    Add a label to make the image easier to find later.

    myRightTextFrame.label = "BodyTextFrame";

    Link the two frames using the nextTextFrame property.

    myLeftTextFrame.nextTextFrame = myRightTextFrame;

    The substitution of Master Page points and adds text

    var myTextFrame = myDocument.masterSpreads.item (0).pages.item (1).textFrames.item (0) .override (myDocument.pag es.item (0));

    Add text by setting the contents of the insertion of a string.

    In JavaScript, "\r" is a return character.

    .silence myTextFrame.insertionPoints.item (0) = "dok\r";

    Adding and applying a paragraph Style

    var myParagraphStyle = myDocument.paragraphStyles.item ("title 1");

    try {}

    var myName =;


    {} catch (MonErreur)

    //The style of paragraph don't have not exist, so create it.

    myParagraphStyle = myDocument.paragraphStyles.add ({name: 'Title 1'});


    We need to create a color. Check if the color already exists.

    myColor var = myDocument.colors.item ("Green");

    try {}

    myName =;


    {} catch (MonErreur)

    //The color have not exist, so create it.

    myColor = myDocument.colors.add ({name: 'Green', model: ColorModel.process, colorValue:[100,0,100,0]});})


    Now set the formatting of the paragraph style.

    myParagraphStyle.appliedFont = "Arial";

    myParagraphStyle.fontStyle = "Bold";

    myParagraphStyle.pointSize = 24;

    myParagraphStyle.spaceAfter = 24;

    myParagraphStyle.spaceBefore = 24;

    myParagraphStyle.fillColor = myDocument.colors.item ("Green");

    Apply the style to the paragraph.

    myDocument.pages.item (0).textFrames.item (0).paragraphs.item (0) .applyParagraphStyle (myParag raphStyle, true);

    You can also use:

    myDocument.pages.item (0).textFrames.item (0).paragraphs.item (0) .appliedParagraphStyle = //myParagraphStyle;

    Import a text file

    Display a standard dialog box open the file to select a text file.

    var monFichierTexte is File.openDialog ("choose a text file");.

    If you selected a text file, and if you didn't press Cancel,

    Place the file of text on the first insertion point after the title.

    If ((monFichierTexte! = "") & & (monFichierTexte!) (= null)) {}

    myTextFrame.insertionPoints.item(-1).place (myTextFile);


    Place a graphic

    Display a standard dialog box open the file to select a graphic file.

    var myGraphicFile is File.openDialog ("choose a graphic file");.

    If you have selected a graphics file, and if you didn't press Cancel,

    Place the graphic file on the page.

    If ((myGraphicFile! = "") & & (myGraphicFile!) (= null)) {}

    var myGraphic = myDocument.pages.item (0) .place (myGraphicFile);

    //Since you can place multiple graphics at once, the place method

    //returns a table. For the graph you have placed, get the first

    //item in the table (beginning of JavaScript arrays with element 0).

    myGraphic = myGraphic [0];

    //Create a style object to apply to the graphic image.

    var myObjectStyle = myDocument.objectStyles.item("GraphicFrame");

    try {

    var myName =;


    catch (MonErreur) {}

    //The an object style have not exist, so create it.

    myObjectStyle = myDocument.objectStyles.add({name:"GraphicFrame"});)


    myObjectStyle.enableStroke = true;

    myObjectStyle.strokeWeight = 3;

    myObjectStyle.strokeType = myDocument.strokeStyles.item("Solid");

    myObjectStyle.strokeColor = myDocument.colors.item("Green");

    //The frame containing the graphic is the parent of the graphic.

    Thanks in advance.

    Hey, Ron.

    The problem has nothing to do with your script. You can see if you attempt to place the file from indesign tagged text by hand.

    Your instinct for divide and conquer for debugging is a good - have a short text file to work with is very useful - of course this is also true for the script.

    During the validation of the scripts on the forum, please do not use the syntax insert > feature Java which lies behind the > arrow in the toolbar. Otherwise, cut and paste your script are difficult requiring manual corrections.

    Anyway, your problem is that each paragraph can have only a single paragraph style, and it's the last one that you define.

    So in your IDTT file, you set the heading 1 paragraph style, enter the content of the paragraph and then set the style of paragraph votes to zero.

    If you have included a line break before setting the style of paragraph votes to zero, you must set the None style for the following paragraph. But since you have not, it resets just the style to the current paragraph.

    In short: success back before .

  • DfVuBrowserPlugin.exe will not run on 64-bit v.41. reports restaur頳era file corrupted - it works on old Xp

    I used LizardTech DjVuBrowserPlugin50.exe on my old XP PC and recently tested on a laptop.
    My new PC has 64-bit Firefox 41 and using 'install module file' produces a message saying
    "This add-on has not been not installed because she seems to be corrupted.

    The answer is to put npdjvu.dll in the Mozilla Firefox plugins directory, then turn it back on. Open the menu (the right hand of the menu bar icon), and then select Add-ons. Scroll to Viewer DjVu Plugin and change the "Application activation" status to "always enable".
    Have had no problems since, while I installed LizardTech Djvu Solo and DjVu Control, which contains DjVuViewer.exe

  • VB6 sp6 package setup.exe will not register files/deivers

    I wrote several applications in VB6.  Send us these requests to clients for my product configuration in the field.
    I use the package Wizard and deployment of VB6 SP6
    When the visitors in the field run the setup.exe, they get the error-
    An error occurred when registering the file 'C:\Windows\System32\hid.dll '.
    This happens to a lot of files - such as Ws32_32.dll, setupapi.dll, mswinsck.ocx...
    I read that it has to do with SysWOW64 seen pre-compiled drivers inside who are older than VB6 has access revision to, and that the vb6 setup.exe which is part of the package cannot update drivers SysWOW64.

    Is there a way to make a vb6 package that installs on Windows 7?  If not is there at least a way to remove the errors, so that customers are not, the application is running.

    Thank you

    I can make a backup of hard drive using NTBACKUP. EXE, but it won't make an ASR recovery on my USB floppy disk. I tried to help a Q299526 article but records were not there. I couldn't find the dossier_Windows/repairs where they were supposed to be. I looked away for the files asr.sif and asrpnp.sif but nothing helped. My PC recognize the USB floppy and it is #1 in the start position.


    I suggest you try the procedure below.

    a. click on the star t button, type %windir%/repair and press to enter.
    b. now, search for the files Asr.sif and Asrpnp.sif.

    Also the article below which might help you.

  • My VB2013 exe will not run the Task Scheduler but works very well for direct click in Explorer as well as a BAT file.

    The program is configured to run from a direct click using a text file specifying where the source files and destination.  Worked very well for a direct click or from the. BAT file.   It runs the Task Scheduler, I can see it appear in the Excel Task Manager when it is active.  But while it freezes.  He reads the spreadsheet looking for specific elements then output to a CSV text file.

  • WS-C3750G-12 s with c3750-ipservicesk9 - mz.122 - 53.SE2 will not apply for route interface map VLAN

    I'm not able to implement a roadmap for an interface VLAN on this three switch layer.


    WS-C3750G-12 S


    C3750-ipservicesk9 - mz.122 - 53.SE2

    Route map Config:

    access-list 151 allow the host ip everything


    TEST allowed 10 route map

    corresponds to the IP 151

    set ip jump following x.x.x.x (Public IP)

    Used command.

    interface VLAN2

    IP route-matches of TEST strategies

    I also do a show run all | I have the interface Vlan 2 and there is no config hidden for this too.  Does not support this version of IOS.

    I suspect it's because your other switches in the stack are not 3750-12s switch?

    3750-12s switch running the model of aggregation by default but all other 3750 s cannot run office model.

    Then on the master can try this-

    "sdm prefer routing Office."

    and then charge again.
