Airplay works for one user but not for another on the same machine

I have the problem where airplay works for one user but not for another and both users are on the same machine.  For the user where it does not work, everything appears normal, it's just that there is no sound being transmitted.  I have tried restarting the Airport express, restarting iTunes, repairing disk permissions.  Any ideas about what can be done to resolve this?

  • Report visible for one user but not for other user

    Hi all,
    We have a situation where a report is visible to one user but not to some other user. What could be the possible explanation for this? Please let me know.
    I need quick responses.
    Thanks in advance,
    Sananda

    Hi Sananda,
    Just assign the saem roles as the other user who can view ..
    You can inform the Auth/basis team and they shud be able to do this..
    The T Code is RSECADMIN>user  Tab>Assignment>user.Display and BView the roles here..
    or goto SU01 and check for the Roles Tab.....
    The New user must have the same roles as that of the other..

  • Quick time works for one user but not for another

    I transferred my user info from my old computer to my son's newer computer. My old computer was running 10.3x and quicktime wasn't working. The genius bar folks couldn't figure out how to fix it. (All quicktime files come up with the logo with question mark.)
    New computer (newer) is running 10.4. Stuff all transferred fine. Problem transferred too.
    Old user signs in, quicktime works fine. I sign in, quicktime broken.
    How do I figure this out?

    Inside your hard drive, in the Users folder should be your user home folder (with your account name.) Within that folder is a folder called Library... open that and look for a QuickTime folder within, pull that QuickTime folder out to the Desktop. Do the same for Internet Plug-ins. Then, open Preferences and pull out com.apple.quicktime... (all of them) and the QuickTime Preferences file.
    Then log out (Apple menu) and back in (or restart) and try again!

  • Office 2008 Setup Assistant Loop for one user, but not for another

    I just upgraded my MacBook Pro to a MacBook Air and migrated everything across using Migration Assistant via WiFi.
    Seems to have gone fine but found that my wife can't get any Office 2008 apps to start up. Word, Excel, etc start up in my account without a hitch but when we try to start any Office app in wife's account the Setup Assistant pops up, asks if we'd like to participate in feedback, then asks to choose to register or learn more. No matter what we choose the Microsoft Updater pops up and prompts to check for updates after this the app closes. We are forever in this loop of trying to open an Office app, checking for updates and then the app closing down. And the app closes even if I quit Setup Assistant and/or Microsoft Updater.
    I've tried dumping various plists but not luck.
    Any help in resolving this would be much appreciated.

    Another copy of this question turned up a couple of weeks later and has been answered. Basically, you have to reinstall Office 2008 from the original media.

  • After installing Mountain Lion, why is there Yahoo access for one user but not another?--both are administrators.

    After installing Mountain Lion, why is there Yahoo access for one user but not another?--both are administrators.

    We've had several instances where we have had to run chkdsk on arrays with over 1m files. Average completion time is approximately 72 hours. The maximum downtime window they have available is the 64 hour weekend window. File sizes and number of files were
    much smaller then than they are now.
    The idea, in theory, was to use VHDs to compartmentalize the data into smaller volumes which could be more easily managed. It would also improve performance when transferring these compartments of data as they would use sequential read/write rather than
    fragmented/random. This idea was never fleshed out in entirety, they don't split data up into little containers, but simply into big ones per project. Hence the 11m files in one container that I am currently trying to diagnose.
    Some other important facts: The VHD in question is mounted in B:/project/ as this server also allows remote workers to log in, but they are restricted to see only data in E:. Disks A-D are hidden via group policy.
    Update: icacls is failing on a large number of files within this dataset. I counted the path characters to ensure it wasn't the 255 character limit I was encountering and verified that the paths being blocked are only about 150 characters long. Once it finishes,
    I'll have to try taking ownership and then re-running it. At this point I still have no idea how long to expect. I'm running out of time as the environment will be in use again at 9AM tomorrow morning.

  • Classic - text ringtones work for one contact but not for others

    Just got the new Blackberry classic.  I'm having trouble with the ringtones for the text messages.  The custom ringtone works for one contact but not for the others.  I have taken the same custom ringtone that works for contact A and used it for contact B but it only works for A.  B sounds the default ringtone from the default profile instead of the custom ringtone.
    I have deleted all contacts and done a re-sync thinking something was corrupt.  That didn't work. 
    None of the contacts have a link. 
    I have changed the notification profile and it still doesn't work. 
    I have deleted a contact and recreated it manually.  It still doesn't work. 
    I finally deleted my dad's  contact and from the phone app created a new contact.  I set a custom ringtone for him and it worked.  I of course had to recreate all his other information manually.  Please tell me there is some other way to fix this than recreating manually all 147 contacts in my contact list.
    I read that if the phone number has the hypen or space it won't work, but my dad's contact info that I created from the phone app has the hypen and it rings with the custom ringtone.  Also contact A has no hypen in the phone number and it rings the custom ringtone.  So that didn't seem to matter. 
    I have spent hours on Google and see that lots of people have had this problem (but not everyone) but have not yet found a solution. 
    Surely someone has found a fix for this issue.

    Make sure that the contact has "Mobile" as the field for her number and not "iPhone".
    Note that the iPad cannot send SMS messages.

  • Safari works for one user but not another on same computer

    MacBook with multiple user accounts. Safari (and Firefox) work fine for one user but are unable to open web pages when the other user is logged in. The error in Safar is "Safari can't open the page "http://xxxxxxxxx/" because it could not connect to the server "/xxxxxxx/" . DNS is working for this user. I am able to ping any number of sites from Terminal. Network Preference pane is configured to not require any proxy. This is a case of it was working but now it's not.
    Can anybody help with this? I know I can fix this by simply creating another user and transfering the affected user's data to the new account but I would rather not. TIA

    HI Bob,
    You can test your settings by clicking the big "Test My DNS" button at <https://www.dns-oarc.net/oarc/services/dnsentropy>. If you see "Poor" on any of the tests, don't use that domain name server! Remove it from Apple Menu => System Preferences =>Network =>DNS Servers or similar location in your router if you've got a 'home network'. If all you have is "poor" DNS servers in your list, call your ISP and insist that they give you the address of a name server which is protected against the recently exposed DNS cache-poisoning threat.
    Also, open System Preferences/Network. Click the DNS tab. Add these numbers in the DNS Servers box.

  • HELP!! WRT54G2 works for one computer, but not for the other

    I have a WRT54G2 and it is connected to 2 computers. The internet works in one computer, but not on the other. The tech support said i needed to configure it or firmware or something like that. But my product is out of warranty and I really need the internet on the other computer as well. Please Help!!!

    As your one computer is working fine then there is no problem with the router so far...
    The computer which is not working...check the IP Address on that...
    Click Start >> All Programs >> Accessories >> Command Prompt...A black box will appear(Command Prompt)...In the Command Prompt window type ipconfig and press 'Enter'...Look for Ethernet Adapter Local Area Connection IP Address , Subnet Mask and Default Gateway...
    IP Address should be 192.168.1.x, Subnet Mask : 255.255.255.0, Default Gateway : 192.168.1.1 (assuming your router is 192.168.1.1)...
    If you get the above mentioned IP Address, Subnet and Gateway Address then you should ping the Gateway, type ping 192.168.1.1 and press Enter...If it gives you request timed out then disable any firewalls, security softwares on the computer...
    If you get 4 replies then type ping 4.2.2.2 and press Enter, if you get request timed out, then you need to upgrade your router's firmware...If you get 4 replies then type ping yahoo.com and press Enter...If you get replies for Yahoo then you should get the Internet after adjusting the browser settings...
    Adjusting Browser Settings : Open an IE, click Tools >> Internet Options, then delete all files, cookies, history, forms...Goto "Connections", make sure Never Dial a Connection is checked, click on LAN Settings and make sure all the options are unchecked...Once you are done click on O.k...Close the IE and re-open it...
    If yahoo times out then provide static DNS on your LAN Connection...
    Click on the Start button >>> Settings >>> Control Panel >>>Network Connections- Right click on the icon for Local Area Connection and go to properties- On the 'General' tab select 'Internet Protocol TCP/IP' and click on the Properties button- Select 'Use the Following DNS Settings' Preferred DNS 4.2.2.2 Alternate DNS - 192.168.1.1>>Click on Ok button to Save and Click on "Close" on main Properties window...You should be able to go online...

  • Safari won't open for one user but does for other

    I have 2 users on my mac. Out of nowhere, the Safari application will not open when I am logged in but works fine with my other user (where I am currently writing from). When I'm logged in, it hangs but the application never opens...just the searching colored ball over the application headings at the top making have to force quit to do anything else. I have the most recent version of everything and haven't even updated or installed anything within the last week. Just stopped working. I've read many different suggestions about removing plug ins and other files from various libraries. I do not have the Leopard install disks to try re-installing as it was installed at the genius bar for me as my DVD drive does not read any install disks. I'm at a total loss. How can it work with one user and not another--it's the same computer...Thanks.

    OK--So I kept searching through all the discussions for other possible solutions....each time removing some file and putting it on my desktop and trying again. Well something worked. I have the following folders now on my desktop that were removed
    Hard drive > Users > Your username > Library > Safari > Downloads.plist
    Hard drive > Users > Your username > Library > Safari > History.plist
    Hard drive > Users > Your username > Library > Safari > formvalues
    Hard drive > Users > Your username > Library > Preferences > com.apple.Safari.plist
    Hard drive > Users > Your username > Library > Cookies > cookies.plist
    Hard drive > Library > InputManagers
    Hard drive > Users > Your Username > Library > InputManagers
    Hard drive > Users > Your username> Library > Caches > com.apple.safari
    Hard drive > Users > Your username> Library > Caches >Metadata > Safari
    The last file I dragged to the desktop was the form values folder. No idea what actually worked but it's up and running and actually moving faster than before.
    Question now is do I trash all these folders I dragged out to the desktop? Or do some need to go back? Any other safari maintenance I should do now that it's open? I emptied the cache and cleared the history. Just trying to be preventative. Thanks iBod for your suggestions and I hope this helps someone else as it appears that many have had this issue.

  • Application works for one user but not another......Please help

    Hi just wondering if anyone can help.
    We have an app (get i_player automator) that we have been successfully using for the last year or so.  The other day our internet connection died mid download and the app stopped responding. 
    Rather than force quit darling hubby did something fancy with the terminal window (not entirely sure what but I remember kill, bash and gerlp??). 
    Anyway since then the app will start appear in the doc (bouncing happily up and down) but no window will open.  This happens just on my log in.  If I ctrl click the application is listed as not responding.
    The app works correctly for other users on the same machine.
    I have tried the following to no avail
    Turning off and on again
    Deleting the app and re installing
    Any ideas?

    Most applications work user-per-user, maybe your darling has to do some more of that magic in the Terminal on your account?

  • Magic Mouse One-Finger Swipe Works for one user but not the other

    For the main account on my iMac, I can use a single finger swipe to move back and forward within Chrome. However the second user (also an administrator) cannot use this setting and must instead use the two finger swipe in settings. Both settings are identical but the Chrome browser wont recognize the single finger swipe for the second user. The gesture works fine in Safari, but not Chrome. Any suggestions?

  • ODBC--connection to 'SQL Serverservername' failed for one user but not another

    In Win7, we're linking tables in an MS Access 2010 db to tables in a SQL Server 2008 R2 db. The driver user by the File dsn is SQL Server version 6.01.7601.17514 & we're using SQL Server Authentication.
    For some reason, one user gets the msg "ODBC--connection to 'SQL Serverservername' failed" before they're even asked for a password, but for other users, the prompt comes up and when they uncheck the Windows Auth box, they enter their password
    and connect successfully to the SQL Server db.  Both users have db_datareader access to the SQL Server db.
    I had the user that gets the error msg log onto my PC and they get the same error (yet it works for me.)
    This user was, however, able to successfully relink the tables, but then when we closed the access db and opened it again, the user got the "ODBC--connection..." error agin.
    I'm stumped as to why this is happening for one user.

    Hello Knellen,
    Please help to collect more log information regarding this issue, such as windows event log, SQL Sever log information. They are helpful for us to troubleshoot it.

  • IPhoto 08 imported for one user but not another

    We have iPhoto '08 ver 7.1.5 and it worked fine with my login. I could import photos from our Canon PowerShot SD960 into my iPhoto library. But when my wife logged in and tried to import the same photos she got a message stating "Unreadable Files" and "the following file could not be imported".
    On her login using Image Capture, she could import the pictures off the camera and save them to her Desktop then she could view and also save them using Preview and could also import them to her iPhoto library from the Desktop folder she had saved them into.
    I reformatted the camera's card and I also used iPhoto Library Manager and rebuilt her Library.
    We can now both import pictures fine but I'm wondering for how long this will be the case.
    Same exact situation existed with another camera we have - it worked for me but not for her.
    Just curious to know what the cause might have been in case it's something we are doing that is causing the issue.
