Content of file is different on some machines?!

I'm the networkadministrator of a company that uses a couple of macs and macbooks with CS2 & CS3 in a simple network. The data is shared on a network drive and contains all the files we work with. If user A change something in file X and saves it then user B doesnt see those changes... Otherway around it does show the changes. Does Illustrator has a function were you can check if you want to see changes made by other users or something like that?
I'm more a Windows guy, so i am not aware of any synching functionality that keeps local copies of network files. In that case user B is probably working with a local copy instead of the network copy?
I can't figure it out, can someone please give me a clue what's going on?
Tx in advance!

We work in the same way as you do, using a central server that all designers have access to. Adobe doesn't recommend this practice but it's the only reasonable way of working in a firm like ours where maybe several people are working simultaneously on the same project (although not on the same files).
Sometimes we have to wait a while for the server to respond, but recently saved files should become available for other Mac users pretty quickly.
Closing server windows and reopening them usually does the trick although some users' machines seem to take a bit longer than others.
All our artwork files are saved on a Mac server. We don't allow direct access by Windows people. This can cause serious problems, things like EPS picture files getting saved so that their original applications don't recognize them any more.

  • Exported pdfs - Linked file not dispalying correctly on some machines

    I'm creating several PDFs in InDesign CS5.5. I'm creating links to different files in InDesign using buttons. The pdf links work correctly on all machines and open the file theyre supposed to. I run into a problem on some machines though. The first page of the newly opened pdf opens completely gray... nothing displayed. If you hit page down and then page up, page two displays fine, and page one then appears fine from that point on. On some machines it's a little slow to display, and goes from gray to displaying the page in about one second.
    Does anyone know why this would be happening, and how to fix it?
    They are created on a mac, and the problem is present on some macs, but not others, and seems fine on PC. It's also worth pointing out that it isn't the speed/power of the machine, because the older less powerful machines have no problems with it.

    How are these files being viewed?

  • Two machines saving the same file as different sizes?

    My coworker and I both have the same version of Illustratir (CS6) and both use Lion on iMacs, but today noticed something weird. He saved a file similar to a file I had done before as both an eps and a pdf and his file size was more than twice what my file sizes usually are. I thought it was odd, so I copied everything from his file into a new file (same dimensions) and saved out an eps and pdf (default settings), and like I thought, my files were less than half the size of his.
    Why would two machines be saving identical files at different sizes? Is there a setting somewhere I'm missing? Everything in the file is vector, if it matters. There's not even any editable text.

    See the mechanism of saving here:
    The size of the "blocks" depends on the size of the disk and how it's been formatted.

    When you restore from a Time Machine back up you can pick and chose what is restored. It is not an all or nothing process. Nor do you have to do the partial restores all at the same time. If days after the first partial restore you find something else you want you can restore just that.

  • I have recently changed from a macbook to macbook pro and all my files were saved on time machine but some won't open. It says I need permission.. How do I open them?

    I have recently changed from a macbook to macbook pro and all my files were saved on time machine but some won't open. How do I open them?

    Are you trying to open the backup files via the Finder or an application?  If so, that's not how you should access your backups -- use the "Star Wars" display, per #15 in Time Machine - Frequently Asked Questions.
    How did you get your stuff on the new Mac? 
    It sounds like you may have skipped the offer to transfer it when your Mac first started up, created a user account, then used the Migration Assistant app instead.  If so, that may be the problem;  doing it that way means you end up with an extra user account, and can lose permission to files on other volumes, especially backups.
    Please clarify just what you're seeing, and whether you still have the old Mac.

  • JFileChooser (again!) slow in JRE 1.6.14 on some machines, not others

    I am running ImageJ (from the NIH) on several of our machines and on some machines JFileChooser is lightning fast, while others exhibit the same slowness spoken of in another JFileChooser thread that is now in a locked state. We open large image files (tif, png) located on our SAN and from the network traffic I see in Windows Task Manager while opening a folder containing the images I would guess that JFileChooser is actually opening the files (intentionally or not), not just obtaining a folder listing. It's similar to the same issue of opening a large folder of images with the view set to thumbnails - it takes about the same amount of time. I have tried the suggestions in that thread to no avail - the environment the machines are running is:
    Windows XP SP3
    Java JRE 1.6.0_14
    Can anyone comment on what JFileChooser is doing and how I can get it to stop this? Is it a Windows environment setting so that the native API calls made by JFileChooser will behave differently? Thoughts?

    I can't be absolutely sure, but we have several seemingly identical machines used for the purpose of reading medical images and several of them appear to work correctly (very fast loading and population of the folder's contents) and others don't. I have been using eclipse to enhance the software tool we're using (ImageJ) and using the debugger I can see that when the JFileChooser object is being instantiated and populated with entries a tremendous amount of network traffic occurs. This network traffic is equivalent to the amount I see when the same folder is opened in My Computer using a thumbnails view of the folder contents. Apparently, the network is delivering approximately 300-400 MB of images. As far as configuration of the Windows machines is concerned I haven't found a significant difference yet, though I admit I am not a Windows desktop admin and may not know of some configuration item that could be responsible. I assume (though could be mistaken) that both My Computer and JFileChooser are ultimately using similar API calls to get the folder content entries?

  • File length different for a copied file. Or use checksum

    I am making a backup of a file before doing some writes to the original.
    I first check it out of source control, then make a copy using:
    public static void backupFile(File f)
    File backup = new File(f.getPath()+"_BACKUP");
    if (!backup.exists()) {
    if (!backup.createNewFile()) {
    Logger.getLogger().log("Could not create "+backup.getPath());
    } catch (Exception e)
    Logger.getLogger().log("Error backing up "+f.getPath()+ ": "+e);
    public static synchronized void copyFile(File from, File to) throws Exception
    if (!from.exists() || !from.isFile())
    throw new Exception ("copyFile Error: checking 'from' file!");
    if (!to.exists())
    throw new Exception ("copyFile Error: creating 'to' file!");
    FileInputStream in=new FileInputStream(from);
    FileOutputStream out=new FileOutputStream(to);
    int length;
    byte[] buffer=new byte[256];
    while((!=-1) {       
    out.write(buffer, 0, length);
    After writing has finished, I need to see if the file is different to the backup..
    If so, I need to check it into source control.
    I wanted to use a checksum, but couldn't find an example that actually worked!!! Therefore I did a quick tool:
    public static boolean isBackupIdenticalToOrig(File f) throws Exception {
    File bu = new File(f.getPath()+"_BACKUP");
    Logger.getLogger().log("Lengths: New/Backup"+f.length()+"/"+bu.length());
    if (bu.length()!=f.length())
    return false;
    // Have the same lengths, so we can compare!!
    BufferedInputStream f_in = null;
    BufferedInputStream bu_in= null;
    f_in =new BufferedInputStream (new FileInputStream (f));
    bu_in =new BufferedInputStream (new FileInputStream (bu));
    for (int i=0;i<f.length();i++)
    int c =;
    int d =;
    if (c!=d)
    Logger.getLogger().log(""+f.getName()+" has been modified");
    return false;
    Logger.getLogger().log(""+f.getName()+" has not been modified");
    return true;
    The problem is in that the File.length() method is returning different values for the backup file, than for the original, even if identical!
    For example:
    10/15/2002 10:22:05: Lengths: New/Backup413/402
    10/15/2002 10:22:06: Lengths: New/Backup397/386
    10/15/2002 10:22:07: Lengths: New/Backup191/185
    All the new files are longer that the backup, but the contents are exactly the same! Is there some WIN32 'extras' in the file that's causing a problem here???
    In each of the cases, if I open the new(Longer) file in a good editor, I can see that the lengths are correct. But no extra characters existed in the new file compared to the backup!!
    Any ideas would be most appreciated

    10 and 13 are CR(carriage return) and LF(linefeed) - this is normal for a Windows file. Use this copy routine; it works.

  • Specific Files Deleted from All Time Machine Backups

    Greetings all!
    I hope you may be able to solve my problem here. Today I purchased a new late-2013 iMac 3.2 GHz i5, running OSX 10.9.3. I've had several computers this year and chose not to restore from my many backups, but rather transferred all documents, data, settings, etc. from my latest backup (completed today, which I know had all the original files) via Migration Assistant. Upon completion, I noticed that many of my folders and files were missing! My first response was to simply check my month-long list of backups for those specific folders and they were all missing as well. This came as quite a scare, as I run a design business and this is my main backup. Note: these are not files that would be on the list that Time Machine skips over; they're just my regular files (docs, pics, pdfs, etc.).
    Now, in a few of the backups, in my User folder, there are more folders than others, along with a few seemingly random files (i.e. company A -> contracts -> onlyme.pdf), but the rest of the files are missing! Some backups include the main Music, Pictures, Documents, etc. and some only include a few. I've verified and repaired the disk, but this only made more files vanish from the backups! I have hidden files visible, which also has not helped. Is there something I'm missing? Disk permissions on Disk Utility are greyed out and I don't know of any other options. Can anyone advise? Are these files simply lost forever?
    Thanks in advance!

    If repairing the volume caused more files to disappear, then the drive is malfunctioning and must be replaced. That's why one backup is not enough to be safe. You need at least two independent backups on different storage devices.

  • Can I use mp3 files from different domain as the feed?

    I have just created a new podcast here:
    I would like to submit the podcast to iTunes sometime soon...
    However, I'm wondering if they will reject it because the feed lives on '', whereas I keep the media mp3 files on ''... a different domain.
    I own the mp3 content and both domains- I'm splitting the media from the website for bandwidth reasons.
    Is this ok? If this causes a rejection straight out is there a way to indicate that I own the material fairly?

    There's no problem about using media files from any source: the feed just has to reference them (the URLs have to be 'absolute' - i.e. including the http:// and the server name - even if the file is on the same server as the feed anyway). I don't see the fact that some files have different URLs leading to accusations of copyright breach.

  • Error 32809 on some machines after Update December 2014

    A user
    reported an error
    in a German forum that an Excel file throws the RTE 32809 on some machines.
    The error occurs on very simple code lines, e.g.:
    Worksheets(strWshName).Protect DrawingObjects:=True, Contents:=True, Scenarios:=True
    There is nothing unusual in the file, only
    Office own controls and some simple macros.
    I can reproduce the issue with my virtual machines:
    Windows Vista - Office 2007
    Windows 7 64-bit - Office 2010 32-bit
    Windows 8.1 64-bit - Office 2013 64-bit
    But the error does not occur on my main machines:
    Windows 7 64-bit - Office 2010 32-bit
    Windows 8.1 64-bit - Office 2010 32-bit
    The error is permanent on my virtual machines, even if I run Windows-Update and install all updates.
    I have
    permission to offer
    the file for download:
    The user reports
    that the
    file works on about 80% of the machines
    in the company, but
    produces the error on
    the others.
    Therefore, this issue it
    is probably caused by an update.
    the *

    anyone tell me which update is missing or wrong?

  • Excel spreadsheet being opened in preview mode by some machines

    I would really appreciate it if someone could help with a problem that is confusing me.
    I am developing an Excel spreadsheet containing a number of macros that are actioned mainly through the use of an ADD-INS customised menu.
    The spreadsheet has been deployed across about twenty systems running a mixture of mainly windows 7 64 bit machines with Office 2010 or 2013 installed.
    For several weeks each spreadsheet has been updated periodically as new functionality has been added. This has not been a problem until now.
    Some, but not all, when they try and open the new version of the spreadsheet get an error 'Application-defined or object-defined error' a number of machines experienced this same problem all at the same time, but not all.
    I have ruled out it being an Office version number problem because in both 2010 and 2013, some work some don't.
    I can reproduce the exact same problem on the machines that don't have the problem by opening the spreadsheet in preview mode.
    I can find nothing that is forcing the problem machines to open the spreadsheet in preview mode and the difference between the previous version of the spreadsheet and the latest version are relatively minor, but the previous version works and the latest version
    causes some machines to throw an error.
    The section of code that is being highlighted is checking the sheet protection, I have isolated the code and inserted it into a test excel file and it works fine on the machines that are experiencing the problem, so it doesn't seem to be a coding problem.
    I feel that I have effectively ruled out any problem with the code itself and so instead concentrated on it being a "preview" mode problem.
    I found that if I opened the new version up on the problem machine and applied a self digital certificate to the VBA code and saved it locally then I could get the problem machine to open the new version without an error.
    I can't see any need for doing this though, there is no digital certificate on the original spreadsheet and when I isolated the highlighted code I was able to create a spreadsheet on the same development machine and send it over to a 'problem' machine and that
    spreadsheet opened and ran just fine.
    I am therefore now very confused. This latest version of the spreadsheet is being opened by let's say 50% of the machines in what appears to be preview mode. The machines are all part of the same network and I have checked that they all have the latest Windows
    updates applied and all have the same Excel options settings.  
    I have checked the security levels and all the machines seem to be set up the same.
    I have doubled checked and there is no digital certificate on the original spreadsheet.
    I need it to work the way it did before, i.e. each computer receives a new version and can open it without any messing around.
    The new version is copied from a networked folder so I have been able to rule out any Outlook security messages to do with email attachments.
    Can anyone shed any light as to what could be going on? 
    Why are some machines opening this particular spreadsheet up differently to every other spreadsheet?
    As it suddenly happened across multiple machines at the same time I was looking at possible Windows updates causing the problem but I have applied all the window updates to two machines and one works and the other doesn't.
    I'm running out of ideas.

    I have now installed the same spreadsheet on 20 machines.  
    15 - installed without any problem,
    3 - experienced the problem but then mysteriously worked a few days later without me doing anything other than trying again.
    1 - worked only after I digitally certified the VBA on the local machine,
    1  - I can't get it to work at all no matter what I do. (Edit the VBA locally, digitally certify the code etc)
    I have another 4 machines that need to be done.
    For the 1 that I can not get to work at all I have checked that all the windows Updates have been applied. It is a relatively new desktop PC running Windows 7 64 bit and Office 2013.

    A Basic Guide for Migrating to Intel-Macs
    The Knowledgebase article <a href="">Intel-based Mac: Some migrated applications may need to be updated</a> refers to methods of dealing with migrating from PowerPC chips to Intel with the Migration Assistant safely. The authors of this tip have not had a chance to verify this works in all instances, or that it avoids the 10.6.1 and earlier Guest Account bug that caused account information to get deleted upon use of the Migration/Setup Assistant. However, a well backed up source that includes at least two backups of all the data that are not connected to your machine will help you avoid potential issues, should they arise. In event it does not work, follow the steps below.
    If you are migrating a PowerPC system (G3, G4, or G5) to an Intel-Mac be careful what you migrate.  Keep in mind that some items that may get transferred will not work on Intel machines and may end up causing your computer's operating system to malfunction.
    Rosetta supports "software that runs on the PowerPC G3, G4, or G5 processor that are built for Mac OS X". This excludes the items that are not universal binaries or simply will not work in Rosetta:
    >Classic Environment, and subsequently any Mac OS 9 or earlier applications
    >Screensavers written for the PowerPC
    >System Preference add-ons
    >All Unsanity Haxies
    >Browser and other plug-ins
    >Contextual Menu Items
    >Applications which specifically require the PowerPC G5
    >Kernel extensions
    >Java applications with JNI (PowerPC) libraries</li>
    See also <a href=" ersal_binary_exec_a/chapter_950_section_1.html#//apple_ref/doc/uid/TP40002217-CH 210-TPXREF101">What Can Be Translated by Rosetta</a>.
    In addition to the above you could also have problems with migrated cache files and/or cache files containing code that is incompatible.
    If you migrate a user folder that contains any of these items, you may find that your Intel-Mac is malfunctioning. It would be wise to take care when migrating your systems from a PowerPC platform to an Intel-Mac platform to assure that you do not migrate these incompatible items.
    If you have problems with applications not working, then completely uninstall said application and reinstall it from scratch. Take great care with Java applications and Java-based Peer-to-Peer applications. Many Java apps will not work on Intel-Macs as they are currently compiled. As of this time Limewire, Cabos, and Acquisition are available as universal binaries. Do not install browser plug-ins such as Flash or Shockwave from downloaded installers unless they are universal binaries. The version of OS X installed on your Intel-Mac comes with special compatible versions of Flash and Shockwave plug-ins for use with your browser.
    The same problem will exist for any hardware drivers such as mouse software unless the drivers have been compiled as universal binaries. For third-party mice the current choices are USB Overdrive or SteerMouse. Contact the developer or manufacturer of your third-party mouse software to find out when a universal binary version will be available.
    Also be careful with some backup utilities and third-party disk repair utilities. Disk Warrior 4.1, TechTool Pro 4.6.1, SuperDuper 2.5, and Drive Genius 2.0.2 work properly on Intel-Macs with Leopard.  The same caution may apply to the many "maintenance" utilities that have not yet been converted to universal binaries.  Leopard Cache Cleaner, Onyx, TinkerTool System, and Cocktail are now compatible with Leopard.
    Before migrating or installing software on your Intel-Mac check <a href="">MacFixit's Rosetta Compatibility Index</a>.
    <b>Additional links that will be helpful to new Intel-Mac users</b>:

    <a href="">MacUpdate List of Intel-Compatible Software</a>
    <a href="">Transferring data with Setup Assistant - Migration Assistant FAQ</a>
    Because Migration Assistant isn't the ideal way to migrate from PowerPC to Intel Macs, using Target Disk Mode, copying the critical contents to CD and DVD, an external hard drive, or networking
    will work better when moving from PowerPC to Intel Macs.   The initial section below discusses Target Disk Mode.  It is then followed by a section which discusses networking with Macs that lack Firewire.
    <b>If both computers support the use of Firewire then you can use the following instructions</b>:
    1. Repair the hard drive and permissions using Disk Utility.
    2. Backup your data.  This is vitally important in case you make a mistake or there's some other problem.
    3. Connect a Firewire cable between your old Mac and your new Intel Mac.
    4. Startup your old Mac in Target Disk Mode.
    5. Startup your new Mac for the first time, go through the setup and registration screens, but do NOT migrate data over. Get to your desktop on the new Mac without migrating any new data over.
    <b>If you are not able to use a Firewire connection (for example you have a Late 2008 MacBook that only supports USB:)</b>

    If you need to transfer data for other applications please ask the vendor or ask in the  Discussions where specific applications store their data.
    5. Once you have transferred what you need restart the new Mac and test to make sure the contents are there for each of the applications.

  • Where can I find a macro I can use in Project Properties to generate PDB files of different filenames each build?

    Found a better solution. The answer is given at the very bottom of this post.
    I'm looking for $(Random), %(Date), %(Time), or some %(Value) that I can put in the "Generate Program Database File" entry.
    Like "$(TargetDir)_%(CreateTime).pdb".
    But the problem is, %(CreateTime), %(ModifiedTime), and %(AccessTime) has colons in them, making them useless when putting them into the filenames.
    What other ways can I generate PDB files of different file names? Or, how do you modify %(CreateTime) so that I can remove the colons and just obtain the numeric values?

    Hi Tom_mail78101,
    It seems that there is no built-in macro for renaming the PDB files randomly.
    You could submit this feature request:
    The Visual Studio product team is listening to user voice there. You can send your ideas/suggestions there and people can vote.
    I agree with Viorel. The possible way to rename the PDB files is that you write your own script to rename the PDB file after building the project and put the script to Post-Build event in Build Event. As for whether this way can accomplish it, you can try
    to consult on: MSBuild

  • Multiple jar files from different locations

    I am having an applet that access code from two different jar files. Of them one is a common jar file for many applets. So I couldn't place it in the local dir as that of the applet's html. I am not using any web server.
         Just to give you a feel of it :
         <PARAM NAME = archive VALUE = "DVApplet.jar,DVVP.jar" > are the jar files my applet is dependant on. But DVVP.jar has to be accessed from a dir different from local dir.
         Will be glad if someone can throw some light on accessing different jar files from different dirs.
         Thanks for your time.

    You can use a class loader to do such things.
