Error when launch Xara Webstyle on Windows 7 64bits

The error ‘Failed to register the DLLs required by the program.‘ is displayed when running Webstyle just after I install it on my Windows 7 64bit

The program is installed default in C:\Program Files (x86)\Xara\Webstyle 4\

I googled the error and found the answer.

Regsvr32 “C:\Program Files (x86)\Xara\Webstyle 4\dlls\bincoder.dll”
Regsvr32 “C:\Program Files (x86)\Xara\Webstyle 4\dlls\templman.dll”
Regsvr32 “C:\Program Files (x86)\Xara\Webstyle 4\dlls\xaradocg.dll”
Regsvr32 “C:\Program Files (x86)\Xara\Webstyle 4\dlls\xmupload.dll”
Regsvr32 “C:\Program Files (x86)\Xara\Webstyle 4\dlls\bmpimporter.dll”
Regsvr32 “C:\Program Files (x86)\Xara\Webstyle 4\dlls\templop.dll”
Regsvr32 “C:\Program Files (x86)\Xara\Webstyle 4\dlls\xfontman.dll”
“C:\Program Files (x86)\Xara\Webstyle 4\dlls\xwsindex.exe” /RegServer
Regsvr32 “C:\Program Files (x86)\Common Files\MSSoap\Binaries\WHSC30.dll”
Regsvr32 “C:\WINDOWS\SysWOW64\MSXML4.DLL”

If you are working on Windows Vista, its possible you will encounter the error below after registering the DLLs and attempting to run the program

“The bincoder.dll was loaded but the call to DllRegisterServer failed wth error code 0x8002801c.”

Please Check the starting security option of webstyle, enable the option “start as administrator”.

How to open the file ending with djvu?

I download some files which extension name is djvu. I have no ideal how to open it or which program can read this kind of file.

Through Google, Wikipedia, some information retrived.

DjVu is a computer file format designed primarily to store scanned documents, especially those containing a combination of text, line drawings, indexed color images, and photographs.

Here is a site to contain helpful resources and links. http://djvu.org/resources/

I downloaded the desktop program WinDjView and installed it on my Windows 7.

The file I open in it is a Chinese Ebook. The Characters are displayed correctly.

Version 1.680 (13th March 2014)

  • Fixed security issues that could be exploited by un-trusted Webmin users in the PHP Configuration and Webalizer modules.
  • Signed the File Manager module Java applet, to prevent scary browser warnings.

Upgrade to Calibre 1.27.0 from 1.19

I upgrade my Calibre installation from v1.19 to v1.27. A lot of new features added since Calibre 1.19. The following is the new features from v1.20.

New Features of 1.27

  • An option to add multiple books from inside a ZIP or RAR file. Right click the Add Books button and choose ‘Add multiple books from archive’.
  • Database backend: Make the database backend more robust when the calibre library is placed on flaky filesystems. Now when an I/O error occurs while writing to the database, the connection to the database is closed and re-opened and the operation is retried.
  • DJVU Input: Speedup extraction of text from DJVU files by implementing the BZZ decoder algorithm in C

 

New Features of 1.26

  • Edit Book: Allow direct importing of HTML or DOCX files as new books without doing a full conversion. Use File->Import HTML or DOCX to import a file as a new EPUB book with minimal changes from the original.
  • Linux binary installer: Various improvements to the binary installer. It now creates an un-installer (calibre-uninstall) that will remove all files created by the installer. It also no longer asks for the installation directory. If you wish to change that, you need to specify it in the installation command itself. Also the installer is now downloaded securely via HTTPS from github and verifies the signature of the installed files. Finally, it can be used to create an isolated install, that only makes changes to files in the installation directory and does not require root privileges.
  • Metadata download: Add an option to merge the downloaded comments into existing comments, instead of overwriting (Preferences->Metadata download).
  • Edit book: Add an option to automatically beautify individual files whenever they are opened for editing. Look under ‘Editor Settings’ in the Edit Book Preferences.
  • Bulk metadata download: When reviewing downloaded metadata allow hiding the controls on the comments box by right clicking in the comments area. Useful on smaller screens.
  • E-book viewer: When displaying metadata for the book, also display custom column metadata

This kernel requires an x86-64 CPU, but only detected an i686 CPU. Unable to boot – please use a kernel appropriate for your CPU

It is a strange error that I encountered installing Centos 6.4 64bit into Virtual Box.

The CPU is AMD A8-3870.  8GB Memory

Host OS is Windows 7 64bit.

VirtualBox is 4.3.6, latest version on Jan 15, 2014.

I have no problem to install Centos x86 version into this VirtualBox. Only when I tried to install the 64bit, the error stops me.

virtualbox-error

The CPU is 64bit. I did enabled the related CPU features in BIOS. I know someone has installation problem of 64bit OS just because of this.

What is the solution of this error?

Upgrade to Calibre 1.19

It is time to memo the new features of Calibre 1.19.

New Features of 1.19

  • Edit book: A new tool to insert special characters into the text, available via Edit->Insert special character. Supports all unicode characters (over 60,000 of them). See http://manual.calibre-ebook.com/edit.html#inserting-special-characters
  • Edit book: When searching for text in the editor, center the found text on screen
  • Driver for teXet TB-146SE.
  • Edit book: Show tooltips in the File Browser for ‘special’ files, such as the cover, opf, ncx, etc.
  • Edit book: When checking book, check for entries in the OPF whose mimetype does not match the file extension.

New Features of 1.18

  • Add an option to control how completion works when editing authors/tags/series/etc.By default, when completing items, calibre will show you all the candidates that start with the text you have already typed. You can instead have it show all candidates that contain the text you have already typed. To do this, go to Preferences->Tweaks->Completion mode. For example, if you type asi it will now match both Asimov and Quasimodo, whereas the default behavior would match only Asimov.
  • Edit book: Add a check for too large HTML files when running the check book tool.
  • Conversion: Sort the CSS rules in the output stylesheet using a ‘natural’ sort algorithm, so that calibre2 sorts before calibre10.
  • Cybook Orizon driver: Upload cover thumbnails in the correct format and add an option to control what directory books are sent to on the SD card
  • Portable installer: Do not ask the user for confirmation when upgrading an existing installation during an automated install
