i have xp pro sp2 64bit
i have all the required drivers and software installed
i have ms office 2007, photoshop cs3, 3ds max 9 installed
few days before they were working just fine.
then, may be, due to any version of vc++ redist installed via any game or other software the applications i've mentioned above have failed to start with following error-
" <system path of the application>
the application has failed to start because the application configuration is incorrect. Reinstalling the application may fix this error. "
i browsed through some forums and came to know that its related to c++ versions and could be repaired by reinstalling the correct version.
so i downloaded and installed vcredist 2005 and 2008 for x64 but no use.
3ds max doesn't start(without error) but it's seen in the task manager processes, same with corel painter 11
while photoshop and ms office doesn't start and give the above mentioned error msg.
reinstalling all the applications again is really painful.
SO PLEASE SUGGEST WHAT I SHOULD DO!!
Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly
Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
