Wednesday, October 8th, 2008

Got odt file and don’t want to install OpenOffice just to open it? Here is a nice piece of software that could allow you to open, view and print odt files (and many more!). It’s called TextMaker Viewer and it’s free. Here is the current list of supported file formats:

.doc (Microsoft Word 6.0 up to Word 2007), .rtf (Rich Text Format), .dot (Microsoft Word templates 6.0 up to 2007), .psw (Pocket Word (Pocket PC)), .tmd (TextMaker 6.0 up to 2008, .pwd (Pocket Word (Handheld PC)), .odt (OpenDocument Text), .htm/html (HTML documents), .sxw (OpenOffice.org/StarOffice Text), .txt (Text files (DOS, Windows, Unicode, UTF-8)).

Dealing with Cannot delete file: Access is denied error

Wednesday, June 25th, 2008

This morning I’ve been fighting with “Cannot delete file: Access is denied” error under Vista Enterprise while trying to reinstall Adobe Acrobat 7.0 Professional. Don’t know what went wrong initially but activation get corrupted and Adobe was closing immediately after opening any pdf file. While trying to uninstall the package it failed to delete several dll files leaving Adobe half-removed. There was nothing wrong with permissions, nor I was able to trace by whom this dlls were locked. After googling and reading several similar cases on Adobe forum I came across to small piece of code which did the trick for me. The software is called Unlocker and it’s free. Try it – it worked for me, so I was finally able to delete and reinstall Adobe.
