Customer Question

When I enter, NET HELPMSG 2221
The system responds, The user name could not be found.
NET HELPMSG ... The syntax of this command is: NET HELPMSG message#
NET HELPMSG 2 ... The system cannot find the file specified.
NET HELPMSG 22 ... The device does not recognize the command.
NET HELPMSG 222 ... The file type being saved or retrieved has been blocked.
NET HELPMSG 221 ... The file must be checked out before saving changes.

So - what's going on? What do I do? (I am trying to replace Wordpad.exe with an earlier version of Wordpad.)

Hi,

TrustedUser is a profile - a Windows system account that you can't see but is used for System files and folders.

Follow these instructions:

1. Open following folder:

%Programfiles%\Windows NT\Accessories

You can open it by typing the path in RUN dialog box and press Enter.

 

2. Now take ownership of "wordpad.exe" file. To take ownership, please follow this tutorial:

Add Take Ownership Option in File / Folder Context Menu in Windows Vista and 7


3. Now rename the "wordpad.exe" file to "wordpad_backup.exe".

 

4. Now go to "en-US" folder and take ownership of "wordpad.exe.mui" file. After taking ownership rename the file to "wordpad_backup.exe.mui".

 

5. Now copy "wordpad.exe" file from Vista and paste it in "%Programfiles%\Windows NT\Accessories" folder.

Do the same thing for "wordpad.exe.mui" file, copy it from Vista and paste in "%Programfiles%\Windows NT\Accessories\en-US" folder.

That's it. Now Windows 7 will start using the old Wordpad.

Thanks,

I did not hear back from you, so I continued researching the problem and found a solution elsewhere - for free. I imagine Win7 is quirky enough that I'll have more questions later. I'll leave my deposit for then.

Er, I gave you the answer 3 1/2 days ago. But ok, if you want to take my answer from me for free then enjoy it I guess. Happy Holidays...
