Search help

  • Simple searches use one or more words. Separate the words with spaces (cat dog) to search cat,dog or both. Separate the words with plus signs (cat +dog) to search for items that may contain cat but must contain dog.
  • You can further refine your search on the search results page, where you can search by keywords, author, topic. These can be combined with each other. Examples
    • cat dog --matches anything with cat,dog or both
    • cat +dog --searches for cat +dog where dog is a mandatory term
    • cat -dog -- searches for cat excluding any result containing dog
    • [cats] —will restrict your search to results with topic named "cats"
    • [cats] [dogs] —will restrict your search to results with both topics, "cats", and "dogs"

Hi Paramdeep,

What operating system are you using? If you are using Windows 7/8 and you aren't able to open .msi files, I suggest contacting Microsoft support.

Yes I'm using Windows 7. I should try that in someone else's computer.

Not necessarily. You should be able to run a .msi by default with Windows 7.

Take a look at this thread from Microsoft.

If that doesn't work, could you post your Dxdiag? It well let me see if you are missing any updates.

  • Windows: Go to the Start menu and type ‘dxdiag’ into the search bar. Open that file and then click ‘Save All Information’. Post that text file here.
