AD_PRT files

I have a set of plans from this site which are in a very strange form, nothing seems to open them. What free programme on the net opens them? Why on earth would anyone use something so difficult.

Uploading Files?

When making my step-by-step "Homemade Hedbanz Game" Instructable, I tried uploading my Microsoft Word files the same way I uploaded my pictures. They would say they downloaded 100% but I could never find them in my uploaded gallery, nor in my Instructable (I checked the "add to this step" box).

Trouble uploading files

Having difficulty uploading files.  I've selected the files and pressed the upload button.  The percentage uploaded increases to 100% but the files stay on the upload list with a status of 100%.  Files are not attached to the step nor do they appear under "your library".  I'm using Firefox 14.0.1.  I've also tried it on Chrome 20.0.1132.57.  Had this problem this morning (Pacific time) and this evening.  This morning I was on a different local network than this evening - so not a network problem.

Batch File Help

Okay, so I figured out how to make one batch file send information to another one. The solution was quite simple. Sejma helped, both witht he final design and for support. I just want to know if there is a way to time an IF command without using CHOICE. Basically, I want to combine the two: ping localhost -n x > nul if %a% equ a goto a If that is even possible, I don;t know. I know I've posted a million questions already, so I'm very sorry about that. Thank you for your time. EDIT: Figured it out. IF %A% EQU A GOTO A & PING LOCALHOST -N x > NUL Now, does anybody know how to convert a .EXE file to a .BAT file?

Hello, I am having some problems deleting images from my image library. Once any image is uploaded, they cannot be deleted, even if they are not assigned to an Instructable, or have ever been. No matter how many times I click on the delete button at the top-right corner of an image, the image disappears for about half a second, and pops right back up. Thanks! 1John310
