Got Windows 10

have been copying slides across and setting up each batch in a file with a hrt description of the slide

Rather than type the whole file list out again i tried to copy and paste. The copy bit seemed ok, Block ;blued' out , but when i got the excel to paste the paste command is greyed out
is it possible to copy across or am i resigned to typing the whole lot out again?.

You mean you just want a list of the filenames? Your copy is copying the actual files themselves, and not just the names, hence you can't paste into excel.

You could:
open a command prompt
navigate to the directory (i.e. you can type something like "cd c:\windows\users\order66\documents")
run "dir /b > filenames.txt"

that will punt all the file names in that directory to a file called filenames.txt in the same directory.....no cut and paste the names from that file into excel

Tnanks, can i add another query

I have just loaded Silverfast Ai Studio 8

When i ran it it came up with this message

The code execution cannot proceed because Qtxxxxx was not found
Reinstalling the program may fix the problem

Well i did and it didn't!

There were four codes not found

Qt5Svg.dll

Qt5WebEngineWidgets.dll

Qt5PrintSupport.dll

Qt5Widgets.dll


I cannot see a 'search' facility that other windows had where you could put *.dll in and it would find all the files

A a result this program loads and then crashes
If i could find these files on the CD i i could put them in the prog, but why did it do it in the first place?

I am a simple fool when it comes to the innards and workings of computers, so any pointers on how to overcome this would be helpful

Thanks

I wouldn't mess around copying dlls around manually - never ends well. Uninstall the software, then try installing again using Admin rights (right-click the setup file and select "run as administrator")

Those look like Quicktime files.
Install Apple QuickTime.
Yeah don't mess with manually copying DLLs.

Wow just looked at that software. Scanning software hasn't really moved on much has it? Still looks like it was designed using Win95 icons.
