The bad thing is for example as I have problems with the DVD since the beginning ( all DVD's bigger 4,7 GB are not read so iMHO the doublelayer doesn't work ) I tried to use the firmware for it as they offer one on this page, but their page supports a driver for a blue ray and the real DVD obviously isn't a blue ray so trying to install it tells me wrong firmware, cannot find a device like that. So this page doesn't reallymatch to my machine :mad:. But as I stillhave Garantie I'll really now call them for Service and maybe they will be able to do something at least on this DVD issue. Then after Garantie I'll try to change System. Thx for your helpso far ;I'll come back to you after spreading... you know :wave:
Shouldn't need any driver for the DVD to be able to boot, and load the Vista DVD. Once you do that, you can load the drivers one by one.
Well, I'd put a different drive in, format it, and take a shot. Worst case scenario, you won't find all drivers (today) but that doesn't mean they won't make one next week.
There is even the Driver SDK! :)
wonder oh wonder I could reinstall VB 6.0 and SP60 and it worked. And also MSDN help works correct and the only additional thing I had to do was in the properties I used 'XP-(SP2) Compatibility ' and I had switched off all Virus scanners, Firewalls and all this Vista security staff as long as I installed the program. Thx a lot for providing information as VB was lost for me on this machine since more then one year now
Then we might see you more frequently in the VB6 forums, Jonny. ;)
What version? I have Ultimate x64 and it has registry problems with a lot of apps from my samples
What are MS designers think, designing such a strange way of Folder handling. And if I'm accessing the same data with a VB 6.0 program and also a newer C# program which path needs to be set in both programs so I always get access to the accurate data, independing which program I'm accessing the data.
Those are VIRTUALIZED FOLDERS, and programmers shouldn't be writing to there anyways. \PROGRAMDATA is OK, though. Just create the data files in your own folder there.
That's how x64 knows. I have Program Files (x86) as well as PF in my root folder. All VB apps are on a different partition.
I really wonder what are MS designers thinking when doing such a strange decision. And if that is virtualized only where are the original files to be found and what really to do if I'm using an old VB application and a new C# application on the same access file. How to set the path to the database in both programs. ? Because this is the next thing that will happen, that two different applications are usig the same database both on a vista OS. :sick:
This really makes me angry and for all this things I think its totally useless to work in VB anymore. All the enviroment around are going to make troubles to that one who still tries to use VB. Such sort of a OS design I would simple name sabotage. :mad:
Whats the reason behind to do such strange things. Anyone knows ?
And when using \Programdata hmm how would this look in German maybe 'Programm Dateien' but in this section is there no such virtual file system created ? There are so much strange changes done in Vista which really are not userfriendly as you cannot do it following your instinct.
This IMHO is why it is a Flop an OS needs to be intuitive, and its really contraproductive when you have to buy a book and learn about an OS to be able to use your programs on it. I would accept to learn about the OS if I want to code near t the OS using all its specfics. But doing simple databse applications and needing to learn a new OS every second year, NO. As I'm using some programs which are originally in English and others which are in german the OS now has created two different files named 'Dokumente' and another one named MyDocuments, I tried to get them both together because its idiotic all the time to need to look if something I did is found in 'Dokumente' or in My Documents'. For being secured against loss of data I first tried to rename the 'MyDocuments' Folder to 'old Documents' and looked what the system will do. The result: Now I have three of them 'Dokumente' MyDocuments' and 'Old Documents' Vista simple recreated the My Documents file' They obviousl tried to handle the labguage specific Foldernames and the whole thing runs into troubles - troubles -troubles for the user.
I think you CAN move My Documents, but not by just copying it.
I don't know what language of Vista you installed, but I'd think the OS would call it MY DOCUMENTS for all languages
If you have PROGRAM FILES and PROGRAM FILED (x86), you should also have a PROGRAMDATA folder. (That's where all my installed apps have their INSTALL files)
As far as VISTA being different, don't expect it to change back. Every new OS is different, and Windows 7 is pretty similar to Vista, and W2K8, etc. There is a lot of shared codebase.
Just figured out that Visual Studio needs to run with ELEVATED PRIVILEGES in order to access the registry. Every time I'd click on a VBP file, anything with one of my user controls would error 'Accessing the Registry'
They'd run, anyways. Starting as Admin works without error.
