Manual loading
« on: July 26, 2012, 02:57:09 PM »
this is about me trying to load the manual that is given on the cd sent with the quickie kit.  I     CAN   NOT     GET    MY    COMPUTER   TO 'PLAY' THIS DISC!! YES! I HAVE SPENT HOURS DOWNLOADING THE LATEST VERSION OF ADOBE READER    YES   I AM VERY FRUSTRATED RIGHT NOW. WHAT IS SO WRONG WITH AN 'OLD FASHIONED' MANUAL? FOR GUYS LIKE ME IT WOULD BE ONE LESS STEP IN TRYING TO FIGURE OUT TECHNOLOGY AND GET DOWN TO BUSINESS. is there a printed manual available?

What does it say? Meaning: what exactly do you do? what happens next? what is the error message, if any?

thenks for the quick response.   it says/does nothing. Once it did ask me what program I wanted to use to open it, but nothing happened after that. It may be a 'preference' that I set wrong?

Ok, Mr. Wizard, I don't know what you did or how you did it, but it worked. VERY strange.       One more thing, I just happened to take my finger and wipe off the laser, real tech    huh. At least the problem was simple. Yah, I get very 'emotional' when tech stuff holds me up. Thanks again for the quick reply....I guess  I'll go release the hostages now.

See! It's called remote intervention. I can always get it to work when there is a long enough distance between me and the failing machine.

I'm glad you found the problem. A searchable manual is actually a very nice thing.

My own stuff is another matter entirely. Running in the background while I type this is a process that might just recover a very corrupted hard drive, if the program manages to keep running for the next 48 or so hours.

Hey, this sounds like an easy fix.  Any help with my Paramount build via "remote intervention" would be appreciated....

Best,

Ya know, I think I got lucky. At first, when I looked at the purple color, I wondered. Then I found that brass and black go with it very well. But what shoes to wear is still a mystery

Actually, It is my mind that thinks. When it is done I try to put it down, but then it starts to bounce all over the place.
