  1. It's CR 2013 SP1 ver The owner at work set it up and pointed it to an IP. He would work on reports offline on his laptop and change the IP to his local system's smaller copy of the database when away from the office, so using server names wouldn't work. I was able to get the solution in another forum. I needed to run a program to put the manager in 32 bit mode and open the ODBC driver. From there, I could easily change the IP of the server. Apparently, that wasn't possible in 64 bit mode. Don't know why. Regardless, it's fixed!
  2. I'm hoping we've got a Crystal Reports guru here somewhere. As part of an IT infrastructure update, we've re-IP's most of our network. Our accounting and manufacturing software database used to be and is now The software clients for it find the new database with no trouble. However, there are 15 Crystal Reports that run over the weekend that are not running due to CR not finding the database. Someone else configured CR and I have no clue how to update it. I've looked around in the various settings, but have gotten nowhere. Can anyone help?
  3. We've started having issues with calendars with a few users at work. For some users, when they try to schedule a meeting, they no longer see an option to add Invitees. It just started happening this week and doesn't impact everyone. A few other people can no longer reserve our meeting rooms. There have been no updates installed to these workstations. It's also not unique to a version of OS X on the system. I'm at a loss as to what could be causing this. Any ideas?

    File Sharing

    We're using AFP for the file sharing, if that makes a difference.

    File Sharing

    It's an all Mac environment, with the workstations running anything from Snow Leopard to Mavericks. I don't know what protocol is being used. I'll have to check with the guy who's managing the setup.
  6. We have a scenario at work where a number of files are stored in one folder with subfolders by process on a G5 PowerMac that's running 10.5.8 (Leopard). File sharing is turned on for this folder because a number of people have to monitor the subfolders to see when a new file has been updated and they know they have to do something with it. Apparently, there's a limit to the number of connections allowed which is less than the number we need. Any ideas on how to get around this? Maybe have OS X Server running on the PowerMac? Being a G5 PPC processor, I'm not sure if that's even available. Help!
  7. Thanks. I passed the info about SearchMyFiles on to our Art Dept. Mgr who's trying to clean up the old files. At first glance, that looks like it should work. Just not sure what kind of output it generates. He'll give it a try next week.
  8. We have a server running Win 2K that we use to store large artwork files for printing. We're looking to archive and remove the oldest files to free up drive space, but the files are stored in folders with other subfolders below that. Is there any way to find out which files are the oldest without needing to drill down in each folder path to the actual file list? We're a mostly Mac shop, so no one is that familiar with any Windows tools that might be able to do this.
  9. It's running Avast AV. I've also run through RKill, JRT, AdwCleaner and Malwarebytes Antimalware. All came up clean.
  10. Would you believe the system started working Saturday morning when the person working in the store that day simply rebooted it? I rebooted the D*** thing probably a dozen times the other night. I'm still going to download some of the tools recommended to see what might be there.
  11. I tried a few of those last night, but not all of them. I'll try again tonight after I get off work. Thanks.
  12. I stopped by my wife's small business last night and noticed that the online backup with MozyPro we have configured had not run for the last week. This PC is running XP Home, SP3. Turns out there was a software update that was required, so I installed that. At the same time, I got a notice from Avast Anti-Virus that an update was also available, which I also downloaded. This install required a reboot. When I rebooted and logged in, the wallpaper appears with no icons or Task Bar. The same thing happens if I log in as me (administrator right) or the regular user everyone else uses that does not have admin rights. I've done an online virus scan from Eset which found nothing. I've used system restore to a point from the previous day. That didn't work. I am able to boot into Safe Mode, but since this is the Point of Sale system, that doesn't really work since the printer and bar code reader won't function. HELP!
  13. Well, you've given me lots of options. Now, I just need a rainy weekend with nothing else going on to play around and see what works. Thanks.
  14. Been a few years since I've posted anything over here. I've got an old Windows PC (Compaq Presario) with an AMD Sempron processor at 2.00 GHz and 768MB of RAM that I used when I switched to Macs to run Quicken and QuickBooks, since the Mac versions of those programs are not that good. I've since installed Parallels on my iMac and am running Windows in there. The Compaq now basically just crunches cancer research data. With XP no longer being supported, I'm thinking I might wipe it and throw a version of Linux on it. I dual booted with a version of Linux MANY years ago on a different Windows PC that is long gone. I'm thinking it was SuSE, but I don't remember. Anyway, I'm looking for suggestions for a version to install on this old PC, assuming it has enough horsepower to run anything. If not, I guess it's time to retire it to the recyclers. What say you?
  15. I should just give Apple all my money. I want an iPad mini, a new iMac, and the new 13" Retina display MacBook Pro.
