Sometimes after inserting a new SSD ExpressCard device into your Vista computer for the first time you may see the following message under the device’s “ReadyBoost” tab: “Device interface is not supported”. Do the following to enable ReadyBoost for the device (assuming the device is ReadyBoost compatible):
Start up the “Disk Management” manager under: Right-click over Computer in the Start menu->Manage->Storage->Disk Management
Find the SSD device and right-click over it to bring up its properties
Select the Policies tab
Choose the option “Optimize for performance”
Drive will remount and ReadyBoost should now be enabled for the device
Note: You can change the policy back to the default of “Optimize for quick removal” and the ReadyBoost option will still be enabled for the device. So the fact that you have to initially change the policy for the device just to enable ReadyBoost is probably a bug. This behavior was observed on an HP Pavilion DV6871US notebook computer with an 8GB Lexar ExpressCard SSD.
There is a very handy PowerToy for Windows which allows you to right-click any directory in the File Explorer and an option to “Open Command Window Here” would show up in the contextual menu. This option would allow you to open up a command prompt window with the directory already set to the directory you right-clicked on.
This feature is built into Windows Vista and can be activated by right-clicking on a directory name while holding down the shift key. When you do this, the contextual menu option “Open Command Window Here” will appear.
When trying to install Adobe Creative Suite 3 ( CS3 ) you may encounter the following error message:
Internal Error 2739
This error message occurs right after you run the setup program to install CS3. The problem is that a DLL file needs to be reregistered with Vista. To fix this error perform the following steps:
1. Open a command prompt but do so with administrative privileges. See this link on how to do this.
2. If you are running Windows Vista 32-bit, then ensure the command prompt is currently in the directory “C:\Windows\System32\” which should be the default starting location when you open the command prompt. If you are running Vista 64-bit, then run the following command to get to the correct directory:
3. Type the following command in the command prompt window and then press ENTER:
If the problem persists, then additionally run the command :
4. Try running the CS3 installer again. It should now work.
