  • "uses a file type that is blocked from opening in this version" error message when opening a *.doc file with Word already running

    Several customers running different versions of Office 2011 (14.4.1-14.4.5) on OSX varying from 10.7.5 to 10.9.5, running on various kinds of hardware (iMac/MacBook Pro/MacBook Air) of various ages are having issues opening *.doc files if the Word is already open. The error message that gets displayed is, "XXXX.doc uses a file type that is blocked from opening in this version"
    When the customer tries to open the same file via File-Open, she gets "The file is locked for editing. you can open the file as read-only".
    When trying to do so, she gets "Word cannot open this document. The document might be in use, the document might not be a valid Word document, or the file name might contain invalid characters".
    If Word gets Force-quit, the same document opens without any problems.
    1. Repairing Disk permissions was ran several times. and the volume was found to be OK.
    2. I have noticed that in this scenario either deleting the normal.dotm or com.microsoft.word.plist (~/Library/Preferences) sometimes resolves the issue, sometimes it doesn’t. There is no pattern to follow. All versions of Office are affected, the fully updated and the non-updated ones.
    3. I have tried completely removing the suite using Office 2011 Uninstall.app and/or Remove Office 2011 Uninstaller.pkg, then going through customer's library and manually removing all the Office references.
    4. None of these systems had Office 2008 in the past.
    Any help will be greatly appreciated.

    Reboot both the Mac and the server. Word opens .DOC files and Excel opens .XLS files. As you have found out by copying the files to the computer. It is the connection between the 2 computer that is causing the error.

  • My flash got unistalled and I can not find out how to reinstall it

    My flash got unistalled and I can not find out how to reinstall itall it keeps telling me is thatit is already installed on windows 8 and have spent hours to try and fix it with no luck

    Flash Player for IE in Windows 8 and 8.1 is embedded by Microsoft, and without removing several unique registry keys, and one specific Windows Update KB Patch, it cannot be uninstalled.
    I seriously doubt you, or anything on your system, did all that, so it IS still installed.
    If you're one of the unlucky souls who updated to IE11, your problems stem from the browser, NOT the Flash Player plugin.
    Microsoft really did a number on the code for IE11, and pages can't recognize the browser, so they don't recognize any of the plugins, like Flash Player. So far, Microsoft has made NO indication that they have any plan to fix it soon.
    Microsoft's recommendation is to use Compatibility View for affected pages, and "pretend" you're using an different browser. Trouble with that is it has seen limited success at best, and you have to individually enable it for EVERY page that has problems.
    I'm not big on "pretending" so I recommend actually using another browser.
    Firefox (from Mozilla)
    Opera (from Opera)
    Safari (from Apple)
    Chrome (from Google)
    ANY of those will work where IE11 won't, with the Flash Player Plug-in (For all other browsers), and Chrome doesn't even need that because it has its own Flash Player plugin built in.

    Replying to my own post - heh. I downloaded iExplorer (http://www.macroplant.com/iexplorer/) which allowed me access to the files on the phone and there was the phantom movie in the DCIM folder. Deleted it, and all is well - although I still have 0.65gb of Other in iTunes.....

  • I put pictures on  my iphone when i first got it and i can not see them when i look for them now

    I need to get ride of photos that are on my phone but I can not find them when the phone is hooked up. How can I find them?

    If you go to the Photos app, is there content in the Photo Library? These would be pictures that are synced to the phone from the computer. Photos in the camera roll are those that you take with the phone, or save from email, MMS on the phone. What type of pictures are you trying to get rid of? If you are trying to get rid of the synced photos, you need to connect to iTunes, select the iPhone in the device pane, then go to the Photo tab in iTunes and remove the check mark by sync.

    Hey e.cliff,
    Thanks for the question. When you sign out of your son’s iCloud account you will be prompted to keep or delete the data on your phone. After you elect to keep the data on your device, you can setup your own iCloud account and the data will be merged/uploaded to your new account:

    Hi Fid
    Your mac is fine but you need OS X 10.8 Mountain Lion or newer and your profile says you have OS X 10.7.5 Lion.  You need to get ML as a purchase from the app store as mirror is a new feature with that OS.
    The alternative is a third party app called airparrot.

    apple sign shows up and then turns off after a few seconds, and i can not connect to my itunes

    I have the exact same problem trying to use the Remote app on both my iPhone 3gs and iPad 2 with either my Mac or ATV2.  My Remote app used to work on my phone - I can't recall if I ever actually used it with my iPad, but when I tried today, I got all the same results as you did (on both iPad, and then iPhone).  I  was using my ATV2 to play music from iTunes on my Mac and wanted to use the Remote app, but it would not connect to either device no matter what I did. 

  • My iPod got stolen  and I did not turn on find my ipod and they restored the ipod so I can not locate it on the map

    my iPod got stolen  and I did not turn on find my ipod and they restored the ipod so I can not locate it on the map
    please help me because it was a birthday present from my Grand ma.

    - If you previously turned on FIndMyiPod on the iPod in Settings>iCloud and wifi is on and connected go to iCloud: Find My iPhone, sign in and go to FIndMyiPhone. If the iPod has been restored it will never show up.
    - You can also wipe/erase the iPod and have the iPod play a sound via iCloud.
    - If not shown, then you will have to use the old fashioned way, like if you lost a wallet or purse.
    - Change the passwords for all accounts used on the iPod and report to police
    - There is no way to prevent someone from restoring the iPod (it erases it) using it.

    My daughter's iphone got wet and camera does not work. She lives in Madbury, NH 03823. Where can she take it for repair?

    Yes it does, although I wa a minute faster than you. To see if someone is parroting you, or that they just posted at the same time, look at the head of the post and it will show you the data and time of the post and who they were responding to. Looking at that first saves some misinformation in future posting.
    You'll see some posts where there will be 5 posts all in the same minute sometimes. Answer posts late at night and you won't see as many.
