WMP and jscript
How can I, using jscript, retrieve the name of the data-stream or file that
WMP is playing at the moment?
My goal is to post the name in a specialized text log, which will have have
"xxxx is playing at mm/dd/yy hh:mm:ss" entries for each time a sample is
taken from WMP.
If this can't be done in jscript, perhaps vbscript? Or some other "batch"
language? Your thoughts appreciated! Thanks.
You can do this using the WMP Object Model, which is documented at

We are using a Star SP 300 printer which connects the our cash drawer. The
cash drawer used to pop open after a sale but no longer does. As far as I
know nothing has changed. Any suggestions?
Check your Tender Types - make sure the appropriate ones are still marked
to "Pop cash drawer".
Are you using OPOS or Windows drivers. If OPOS, make sure the Windows
drivers are NOT installed.
Also, check the cable - make sure that both ends are securely connected
and that there's no damage to the cable itself. If you have a spare
printer (always a good idea) try swaping the ...transfer 98 Money file to XP Money
I have recently purchased an XPE computer. I was running MS Money on 98
Windows system. I would like to transfer my Money file to the new system.
When I use the restore feature under XPE to upload my file, the system does
not recognize the file. How do I transfer my data from one system to another?
Don't use restore. Copy the, usually, My Money.mny file to the new PC.

...Publisher will not print, but Word and EXCEL do
I have a printer problem using MS Office Publisher 2003. My friend just
installed a Brother MFC-3820CN USB printer to his Windows XP Home (V2002 SP2)
computer. He can print from his Word and EXCEL (2003) programs, but not his
Publisher (2003 SP1) program. When the “Print” function is selected in
Publisher, the following message appears:
“A printer has not been installed on the system. Install a printer for
Publisher to use. The fonts in your publication may look different as a
result of the printer selection.”
The printer functions fine in all the other programs. Currently, Publisher ...Open File Dialog to fileter multiple file types at once...?

On my home PC I can print files to a printer called Microsoft Document
Imaging File (TIFF). I want to do the same on my work PC. It too has the
MDI Program; but, I can't figure out how to set it up as a printer the way I
do on my home system. Both run WindowsXP Pro as the OS. The real
difference is that my home system is running Office Professional Edition
2003 with OneNote 2003. My work PC has Office 2002, with the MDI Program.
My question...is there a way to set up a printer with MDI on my work PC with
the software I have?
Thanks in Advance!

I would like to transfer all emails within a number of Outlook 2007 Personal
mail folders from one computer to another. I know that I can zip each folder,
but would like to zip all of them at once and copy the zip file to a USB
drive. If I am able to do this, can I simply copy the zipped file to another
computer, unzip the folder contents and place them in the correct location so
that Outlook will see and list the folders (and the messages therein) on the
second computer? Both computers have Outlook 2007. I think that I need the

As the subject says, can anyone advise if it is possible for me to convert
an existing SharePoint calendar to a PDF file? I would then post the PDF
version of the calendar on an external site so that people can download it to
view the calendar. The external users don't need to edit, they only need read
access to view the calendar. I know you can export to a calendar to an Excel
spredsheet, however my client does not like this option.
Thanks in advance,
You definitely need to build this yourself. I'd advise you to buy a 3rd party

Vista Home Premium
I have deleted a number of pictures from my hard drive, but the file names
continue to show up in Windows Media Player Pictures Library.
How do I get rid of these?
What exactly happens when you right-click these pictures, select Delete,
choose "Delete from library only" or "Delete from library and my
computer" (try both options), and click OK?
If you rebuild the library through Tools - Advanced - Restore media
library, does that help? Note that rebuilding the library will make you
lose all play counts, and possibly ratings too.
