missing dll windows XP SP3 Posready

Windows Forum - Answered Threads, Windows XP - February 14, 2019 - 7:46pm

Hi,

We are using windows XP SP3 version "PosReady" which is still supported by MS.

We have several old computers running on this OS.

Recently we have problem with any software using msvcrt.dll.

Constantly this message popup shows: "the procedure entry point sprintf_s could not be located in DLL msvcrt.dll". Tried removing and reinstalling all MS visual C++ run times but it did not help.

Any help is appreciated.

Thanks,

UPDATE.
We have several computers having this issue. The problem happened 2019-02-13 which is related to an automatic windows update. The computers not having automatic updates are not effected. 

No SATA settings in Bios

Windows Forum - Answered Threads, Windows XP - February 14, 2019 - 3:57pm

I installed a SSD in my dell computer and I want to change the SATA settings to AHCI - problem is I am unable to find  where to change that setting in the BIOS.  In fact, no where does it even mention SATA.  I've tried all the suggestions of going to the registry and changing the values - but again there is no where in the BIOS that I can find to change the SATA.    

Any help would be appreciated.

XP SP3 Update 02/13/19 (POSReady 2009) Caused a Conflict With MSVCRT.DLL

Windows Forum - Answered Threads, Windows XP - February 14, 2019 - 3:35pm

Hi,

I installed the following Windows updates:

KB44****7396

and got this message when the system rebooted.

The procedure entry point
Sprintf_s could not be
located in the dynamic
link library MSVCRT.DLL

I ran chkdsk and copied MSVCRT.DLL from a back up file to make sure there were no issues with the file. No problems were indicated. Once I removed the updates from the system everything worked as before. The operating system on the machine is XP SP3.

Which update caused the issue and is there a patch or workaround?

Thanks

Any syncing programs left that will sync over wifi?

Windows Forum - Answered Threads, Windows XP - February 14, 2019 - 2:25pm

The real problem I'm having now? I have a program on the Win10 that saves files as they are updated on a syncing program Dropbox. I want that same program to be able to come up on the XP and the data files up to date. Dropbox won't install or work on my XP. Google Drive has something wrong too, I forget what that issue.

Listen. This is crazy. I have a Windows 10 HP Pavilion. I have a new Windows 10 Tablet. I have a dual core XP desktop. 2 laptop XP's and an old Xoom tablet that still works for what I want it for.}

These XP's are real problem folks, like geriatrics in a nursing home. Require much more time. But I just can't throw them out. I don't have to visit the thought they're right here. :-)

Does anyone know of a sync program via wifi that installs on an XP?

I will be very much obliged. Maybe I've come finally to the right guys. Among our own and all that.

Thanks  Jack ":-Dx

p.s. I read yesterday that XP is still the 3rd most popular OS. Can you believe that? lol

How many of us are left? XP'ers. I need a wifi syncing program that will install on XP

Unable to install drivers for USB devices in an old Windows XP Pro SP3 desktop PC.

Windows Forum - Answered Threads, Windows XP - February 12, 2019 - 1:24pm
Hello.

I am trying to fix a client's very old Dell Optiplex 380 PC with its
Windows XP Pro. SP3 (IE8 & AU enabled). Basically, it won't install new USB drivers for connected hardwares like flash sticks and mouse.

Their old SanDisk Cruzer Glide 8 GB and SanDisk Cruzer Blade 4 GB USB flash drives still connect in all USB ports.

Unable to use own my 3 old smaller disk capability USB flash sticks (2 128 MB & 1 GB) including SanDisk Cruzer Mini in any USB ports (front and rear).

Original standard/plain Dell optical mouse failed to connect with other PC's USB ports. It only works with its original USB port. I assume other USB ports need to install the mouse driver.

USB flash sticks worked in a booted KNOPPIX v7.2 (Linux) disc. Not a hardware issue, but a Windows XP Pro SP3 issue.

Windows XP Pro SP3 is not able to install new drivers from never used ports for old and new USB devices. New devices do not connect even though connected.

Safe mode didn't make any differences.

Found New Hardware Wizard -- "Cannot Install this Hardware. The hardware was not installed because the wizard cannot find the necessary software."

Always can't safely remove hardware to stop devices.


Does anyone know to fix this issue? Thank you for reading and hopefully answering. :)

Installing Windows XP over Windows Vista

Windows Forum - Answered Threads, Windows XP - February 12, 2019 - 12:33am
I have Windows Vista RC2 installed on my new Gateway laptop and I'm trying to install Windows XP on it. However, when I insert the CD and open the setup it says that I cannot install an older version of Windows over Windows Vista. When I boot from the Windows XP install disc, it says that It cannot locate my hard drive. My hard drive is a Western Digital WD1200BEVS. I don't know what to do. Have any ideas?

Please provide solution for

Windows XP SP2 Laptop won't connect to WiFi

Windows Forum - Answered Threads, Windows XP - February 10, 2019 - 6:53am

Hello,

Last week I dug my old Alienware laptop out from the stuff because my newer Asus died. Anyway, it had several problems that had appeared since I put it down. First, I couldn't use the internet because some protocols were expired, but I quickly fixed that just by installing Chrome and setting the system time to current.

However, one issue remains. The computer has a built-in Intel wireless network receiver, the networks show up, I can enter the passcode, but then it stays on ''Waiting for network'' until the window just closes and the WiFi it's not connected. The receiver doesn't show any issues, it is on and enabled. 

 I have tried to connect to three different routers, password or no password, and also to my phones hotspot. I also took a look at the settings, all seems fine, but I'm no expert.

 The internet works fine when connected with an ethernet wire.

It would be really good to get that sorted since I need that computer for school. The computer itself has Windows XP Professional Service Pack 2, it prompts me to update to SP3, but I have a bad experience with older computers and Windows updates.

Windows Xp sp3 installation error

Windows Forum - Answered Threads, Windows XP - February 9, 2019 - 12:36pm

Hi I have an Acer Aspire One ZG5 computer that runs an old version of Windows Xp.

I want to wipe all user data off but there isn't a recovery partition.

To solve that problem I have tried to install Windows Xp sp3 but after the setup wizard ends,

I get into a Blue screen that asks me to select if I want to install windows xp,repaire them or quit the installation.

If I select to install or repaire windows Xp it tells me that some temporary files are missing.

How can I finish that Installation and then how can I remove the previous one?

P.S I don't have an installation CD.

Thank you
