Applications / Scribus 1.4.0 won't start
« on: 2012.01.16, 17:18:40 »
I've installed Scribus 1.4.0 but unable to make it work. As far as I can see I have all the requirements in place.
(Double clicking scribus.exe only brings up the settings window for the file, no error messages.)
Any ideas?

Setup & Installation / Multi boot eCS and W7
« on: 2011.12.10, 20:03:57 »
I have a new pc with 1 hdd and W7 installed (preloaded) and I'm planning to add another disk (SSD) where I have BM and eCS already installed. Since I doubt that it is just to plug in the SSD disk and add W7 to BM I would appreciate some advice.
(Of course I would get lots of errors trying to boot eCS in a new system, but thats something I think I'll be able to fix later. And, yes, I've googled and found docs related to installing eCS to the same disk where W7 already exists, but I haven't found anything describing "my scenario".)

Applications / Appointment scheduling
« on: 2010.10.27, 21:28:10 »
Need a multi-user Appointment Scheduling software for internal use.
No need for advanced functions like payment etc. which the online versions offer.
Ideas, anyone?

Communication / Remote control / file transfer
« on: 2010.08.27, 16:02:59 »
I've been using RSM (PolyPM) and Netop for remote control and file transfers, but file transfers with these apps are painfully slow compared to FTP. Netop being the worst even when disabling graphic mode. None of these apps achieves even half the speed of FTP. Besides, development of RSM stopped years ago, and local support of Netop hardly exists when you mention OS/2, even though they still develop the server part.
Would like to know what programs others use for these tasks.

Internet / Web page not loading
« on: 2010.08.26, 15:55:12 »
Not sure how/if this is related to my post "file transfer stops", but now some web pages will not load.
Have verified that those web sites are up and running. Ideas anyone?

Applications / Closing inactive application

Any recommendations for a utility that can automatically close an application if it has been inactive
for a certain amount of time?

Communication / File transfer stops
« on: 2010.08.20, 18:42:55 »
After changing from ADSL to SDSL at a remote site I now have problems transferring
files. When copying a file from the remote site to my local pc the file transfer stops after
a while. Have not changed any setup, software or hardware other than the router and
an IP address. Sometimes it works for a couple of minutes, and other times up to 7 minutes.
(I'm using the ancient Remote Services Control since it transfers files a lot faster than Netop.)
Any suggestions where to start looking?

Utilities / Form Overlay
« on: 2010.07.15, 08:48:56 »
I've been trying several ways to to get logos printed on invoices produced by Concorde XAL,
and got it to work by changing a font file. However, by using a form overlay I would get better
formatting of the invoices.
The form simply can be created in OpenOffice or WordPro, but how to convert it into an OVL file?

Setup & Installation / Wrong class for Desktop
« on: 2010.02.28, 22:14:15 »
Had a system hang where the only solution was to power off. When I restarted, chkdsk found and corrected
some errors on the boot partition (HPFS), continued booting to the WPS and all icons/folders are missing.
eCenter is there and most of the widgets and program icons are there.
Ran Checkini and it reports that the Desktop class is WPFolder instead of WPDesktop.
Does anyone know a way to correct this?

Hardware / OmniKey Cardman 3121

Anyone got this usb smart card reader to work ?
Resource manager finds it and lists it as 076b:3021 (high speed 2.0).

Hardware / Iomega home media Network hard drive
« on: 2010.01.07, 14:27:16 »
When I bought this Iomega 1TB Network hard drive I was told I could create
partitions on it, but I'm stuck. It is originally configured as one NTFS partition
and has some folders which I can read from eCS.
Would like to delete all and create 2 partitions, so does anyone know if it is
(The supplied software has no option for the task.)

Setup & Installation / Boot manager problem
« on: 2009.06.28, 14:44:18 »
After disconnecting and reconnecting a disk, the XP installation which
is on C, now shows up in boot manager as D.
I have not done anything to the partitions and LVM shows correct letters
for all the partitions.
Quite some time ago I had exactly the same problem, but I cannot
remember what the solution was.
Ideas anyone?
