I have a problem with Windows 7 and cmd.exe with these conditions:
I can see cmd.exe in task manager but it's invisible in the desktop and I don't know what to do, everything is fine and I can see cmd.exe if I do login with an admin account. I can see it in the "Process" tab but not in the "Application" tab, and if I launch five cmd.exe's, I see five processes, but from that tab I have no "Bring to front" or "Maximise"
I can't find any WOW folder under C:\Windows, even with show hidden and system files enabled.
I'm running Windows 7 32-bit running on a 64-bit Intel Core 2 Duo E7500
The Window has been set to invalid screen coordinates, but it is easy to fix:
Now close the command-prompt and open another one. The window should be on screen.
(Note, the method above for saving the position exploits a bug in Windows 7. You can select Defaults in the context-menu instead of Properties if Microsoft ever decides to fix the bug. Also, for Windows XP, you can do the same actions, but must select Modify shortcut that started this window after pressing Enter.)
Ok. Try to search it inside the WOW folder under Windows folder. When u run win7 32bits inside a 64bits machine, the windows creates a folder called WOW (Windows on Windows) where it stores some of the 32 bits applications. Try it and
I am building a network containing notably a laptop running XP and a computer running Windows 7. Both computer have shared folders and the 7 has a shared printer, to which another laptop running 7 is able to print.
If I attempt to see the laptop's network shares on the PC, everything works perfectly: I am able to see and enter the folders. The reverse operation however doesn't work. Xp doesn't see the Windows 7 PC.
Other things to note:
In the Network Sharing Center on Windows 7, you need to put on the compatibility mode for Windows XP.
Standard, I believe it's set not to be compatible with Windows XP computers...
I had a similar problem, this made it work for me.
Unfortunately, I was unable to find a proper solution within the timeframe. We ended up installing 7 on the laptop too.
This is probably because the "Password-protected shares" option is disable that it doesn't work... Also, do you have a password on each computer? If there is one computer that have no password on admin account, sharing won't work, for security reasons.
To do it straight forward you must have the same account name with the same password on both computers, then that'll work. I did this for my wife laptop that is running Windows XP and she can access shared folders on my Windows 7 computers without any problems.
You might have a problem with the Server and/or "Computer Browser" services, in which case just restarting those services will solve all your ills.
