Autocad to Publisher to Distiller to Printer, drawing becomes faint
I am having a problem printing autocad drawings through with publisher
through distiller and to the printer. The lines on the drawing look
faint and they should be as black as the lines at the bottom of the
page, which were added using the drawing toolbar in publisher.
When I print directly from publisher it comes out well. I cannot figure
out if the problem is coming from the publisher to pdf or from the pdf
to the printer. I hightened the contrast on the drawing in publisher
and that had no effect on final print out.
What file format are you exporting from AutoCAD?

I recently had to reinstall Windows 98 as a last resort to get the computer running. I'm running a Pentium III at 550Mhz with 128MB Ram and 20 Gigabytes hard drive. The version of '98 reloaded is 4.10.2222A.
When I tried to re-load MS Publisher 2002 I get a window saying c:\windows\system\ASYCFILT.DLL is version 2.40.42275.1 when we require v. 2.40.4277.1. Can anyone tell me how I can get and install this latest version of the dll file?

Greetings...according to the Excel "help" file, as well as the file extension listing, I *should* be able to read an *.wks file, but Excel insists that it cannot. I am pretty sure the file was created in Microsoft Works. Is there a converter somewhere that I can download/install? Cheers - S2
Excel can read Works 2.0, not later. You have to save them in Works as excel

The pst file is stored in the profile path of the MSOUTLOK
Since the path of the pst can be varied by the user, as can its name, ie it
neednt be in the install default path, your app would first have to search
for the pst, then you would have to figure out if it/which was the current

I have Excel 2003 running alongside 2007.
Double clicking an excel file causes it to open in 2007; how do I force 2003
to open the files instead?
You most likely have to reset your file association from 2007 to 2003.
Close Excel first and On the Windows Taskbar
1) Start>Run "excel.exe /unregserver"(no quotes)>OK.
2) Start>Run "excel.exe /regserver"(no quotes)>OK.
See the space between exe and /regserver
You might have to designate a full path to excel.exe for Office 2003
In that case Start>Run "C:\your path to\office11\excel.exe" ...Read mail arn't marked as read anymore

...Can't Convert Access 97 MDE File
I have an application that we have been unable to get to
work on Access 2000. I have created an MDE file and used
office developer tools to create a run time file for a
machine with Access 2000 on it.
I get the "You can't convert or enable an MDE file" when I
go to run it.
I know there is something you can change in the Office
Developers Setup Wizard to get this to work, but I forgot
what it was. Does anyone know.

No, you can't convert an MDE.
You have to use Access 97 with the 97 MDE,
and A2K MDE with Access 2000.

they become read-write users).
I notice that every mailbox in the system has 'Read permissions' granted to
