[Fixed] Sumatra PDF is 32bit but should be 64bit

Submitted by daniel_schaaaf on October 7, 2021 - 3:38am

The system requirements for Sumatra PDF are "Windows Vista, 7, 8, 10, 11", which suggests the 64bit version of Sumatra PDF. However, only the 32bit version is included in the PAF.

Due to memory restrictions, the 32bit version of Sumatra PDF cannot open big files (either one huge file or several big files). This is a problem when Sumatra PDF is used as a comic book reader. High quality cbr/cbz are often several hundred MB in size, and some are >1GB.

GnuCash Preferences Reset

Submitted by paulvp on October 2, 2021 - 6:47pm

I was recently prompted to update GnuCash to version 4.8 and did so. When I subsequently launched the program I found that my preferences had been removed, presumbaly reset to default. Also, GnuCash did not open my database by default, I had to manually open it (File > Open...).

I've got an idea this may have occurred in the past but I don't think it's happened with every GnuCash Update. That is, my preferences are usually not affected by an update. My question is: is this (preferences being reset) an expected behaviour with version 4.8, or a glitch?

Unable To Edit Word Documents!

Hello Friends. This is my first post in this forum. Recently I am suffering from an issue with my computer. Yesterday I saved some word documents from the office on my home computer by pen drive and I can't edit or modify them in any way. I don't understand why this is happening, and how this problem can be solved. Can anyone help me with this?

FoxIt Reader 10.1.1 Losing Settings

Submitted by NotMine on February 26, 2021 - 12:00am

Windows 7 x64, fully updated; FoxIt Reader Portable Apps version

I have encountered multiple occurances of FoxIt Reader 10.1.1 losing it's settings (my choices in it's "Preferences" menu and my choice of "skin" from it's menu). It is reverting to ALL of it's default settings. That means the application will "call home" to FoxIt with information for it's "User Experience Improvement" feature (also enabled by default, and did you know it did this?) That also means the default "Start Page" with it's advertising is enabled; BAH! Humbug!
