Does that also auto reset to Italian ?

Shane has suggested that you try the portable version for comparison.

I've emailed Shane with a link to your thread.

Well Shane lives in the USA so I'm sure he will have checked that out.

I've only used the Envelope Printer once and I don't remember there being a barcode - perhaps it's different for the UK, but glad you like the software that Shane provides for free.

There is an Envelope Printer in MS Works but it isn't as good as Shane's.

This is Shane's reply to my last email - can you post that pic ?

That is extremely odd, unless there is a problem with how the program is trying to set the combo box. But I don't see why it could. But something is happening for it to be auto set like that. As you seen from the code I sent it sets the drop down via text and not by index. I wonder if his system his changing the way the text is being shown, that would explain it.
Can you get screenshots from him showing the drop down box open so we can see how the text looks?

This is Shane's reply -

 I don?t seem to have anything to check and autoset the language, but the setting for it is in the settings.ini file in the program folder, also he should be able to simply change it on the main window of the program.

 I've emailed Shane again explaining that it's auto resetting back from English to Italian.

That's the location the bar has to be according to the post office so it isn't movable.

I've passed your query onto Shane.

Shane's working on it.

I've sent another email sent this morning, but as I'm 8hrs ahead of him, not sure if or when he picks it up.

There is a cmd to reset the Store and it is done from the Run box.

Press the Windows key and r together then type WSReset.exe and press enter.

Mine comes up with start up.

Does it appear when you open Windows Repair ?

Is the box checked for it to appear on Startup ?

Windows Repair is only designed to run on normal Windows.

Windows PE can't be used as a primary OS -

That's great news.

Now that your machine is as near pristine as you can get, it may be prudent to create a system image onto external media and a system repair disk to boot up with in order to restore from that image.

Prior to running a sfc /scannow it's best when using Win 8/8.1 or Win 10 to run this dism cmd first and then run the sfc /scannow.

dism /online /cleanup-image /restorehealth

That should report as completed successfully.

A sfc /scannow has been known to report that it has found corruption and repaired it all after that cmd, unlike just running a sfc /scannow first for it to report no integrity violations.

Thanks for that info.

There are only two versions of the program - free and Pro.

There isn't a Tech version.

Has the product key registered to give you the Pro version ?

You should see it displayed as the Pro version as does mine.

I assume you are referring to the Technicians Toolbox and not Windows Repair ?

Each have a Pro licence option which should register to give you the Pro version.

I'll pass a link to your thread to one of the forum's admins who should be able to sort this for you.

Don't forget to let me know how you get on after the repair install.

Can you boot into Safe Mode then go Start - type  rstrui.exe and press enter when it comes up.

This will open Windows Restore for you to select an appropriate restore point.

My Win 10 doesn't create many restore points but it sometimes gives me an option to show more restore points.

I think you also need to check your HDD and run a system file check.

I'm assuming you are using Win 10.

Open a Command Prompt (Admin) or Powershell (Admin) and enter chkdsk /r

Follow the prompts then enter shutdown /r /t 00 to effect an immediate reboot for the cmd to execute.

When it has completed, open Event Viewer and ensure Event Viewer (Local) is highlighted in the left pane - if it isn't then just click on it.

When it has read the data - expand Windows Logs and click on Application/Action/Find and type chkdsk into the Find box and press enter.

Cancel the Find box and read the report in the pane below.

Primarily you are looking to see if it reports any KBs in bad sectors.

If it does then you will need to immediately create a system image onto external media in preparation for full HDD failure.

If the chkdsk comes back clean then open a Command Prompt (Admin) or Powershell (Admin) and enter these cmds which will take some time to run.

dism /online /cleanup-image /restorehealth

sfc /scannow

Enter exit to close the cmd window and let me know what either cmd reports and if they have resolved the problems.

I've replied to you here rather than by private message as this reply could help others should they end up with the same problem.

I have asked Shane to reply in the thread but not sure when the reply will come as I also linked another thread for him to look at.

Hopefully he will be looking at both but if I don't see or get a reply in a week, I'll email him again.

He is very busy as he also has a computer repair business to run.

I've done repair installs on my Win 10 and it has never affected my personal stuff, although I did back it up.

It's probably advisable for you to do the same given that you have sensitive material on your machine.

So how did you get on ?

I'll email Shane again with a link to this thread.

WR needs access to the Internet for it to complete some repairs.

Can you try resetting the router by pressing something like a straightened paper clip for about 30secs into the hole on the rear of the router.

The hole may be marked Reset and you may have to hold the paper clip in longer than 30secs for the router lights to go out.

A darning needle works equally as well.

These are some cmds you can also try which may resolve your connectivity issues.

Create a restore point then at a Command Prompt (Admin) or Powershell admin enter these cmds -

netcfg -d

This cmd will reset your network adapters.

shutdown /r /t 00

Then see what things are like after the reboot - you may have to click on the wifi icon to manually connect your SSID.

These cmds can also help with connectivity -

netsh winsock reset

netsh int ip reset resetlog.txt

ipconfig /release

ipconfig /renew

ipconfig /flushdns

ipconfig /registerdns

shutdown /r /t 00

You could also see if there's a driver update for your wireless adapter.

Windows Firewall kicks in Safe Mode with Networking which may exacerbate the Access Denied, so you may have to White list WR -

Let me know how you get on.

I haven't seen Opzione1 and Opzione2.

Mine defaults to English as I'm in the UK but I changed the language to Italian and it immediately changed to that language and stayed there.

Have you tried reinstalling the program ?

Yes, I got the same error when I pasted that cmd.

This article has some steps which may help repair/reinstall the MS Store.

It has a variation of that cmd which also produced the same error, but resetting the Store as it suggests may fix.
