Installation is the act of making a computer program program ready for execution. Because the process varies programs often come with a specialized program responsible for doing whatever is needed for their installation. Installation may be part of a larger software deployment process. Cross platform installer builders that produce installers for Windows, Mac OS X and Linux include InstallAnywhere, InstallBuilder and Install4J. Installers for Microsoft Windows include Windows Installer, InstallShield, and Wise Installation Studio; free installer-authoring tools include NSIS, IzPack, Clickteam, InnoSetup, InstallSimple and WiX. Mac OS X includes Installer, and also includes a separate software updating application.

I have a 2012 Standard r2 Server that i have installed Quickbooks Enterprise Solutions 17.0. After the installation i can not get the QuickbooksDB27 Service to start. I have uninstalled reinstalled many times. QB 2014 worked fine. When i first try to start the service i get an error that the user login failed so i reset the password for the .\QBDataServiceUser27 user and then try to restart then i get Windows could not start the QuickbooksDB27 service on the Local Computer. Error 1053: The Service did not respond to the start or control request in a timely fashion.

I adjusted the Time out in the registry for a longer time and same thing. I have spoken to Intuit and that is just a waste of air. This is a single server running as a guest on a 2012 r2 Std Hyper V. It has roles of DC, AD, File, RDS,

Any one have any suggestions.

I have created two Win10 machines without a member domain and now I am trying to install MDT on it. During MDT installation, it is asking me to download WADK, and with in WADK I am getting error for Toolkit documentation x86. When I am locating the file to the path, it is giving me an error "unable to verify the integrity of downloaded content. it might be corrupted. please check your network connection and try again.
These two machines are not part of domain and not connected to the internet. I have tried to connected them to internet. I cant seem to get them connected to internet.

I created a transform file for an MSI using Orca that is about 5k. I applied the transform to an MSI open in Orca in order to change an application URL, consisting of an additional 11 characters, however when I generate the new transform file the new file is over 20k. Anyone have an idea why such a dramatic increase in size for such a small change? Or how I can go about determining what additional changes are being added?
Orca is configured to open MSIs in READ ONLY mode.
Currently running on Windows 7 Professional SP1 32-bit.

Hi Experts,

I would like to begin installation of TFS.  At this point I am only interested in the Shelving/Unshelving part of TFS.  I have seen this working in another company I was working for and would like to do the same...

Don't think it is installed...
AS one can see seems I don't have it installed.

I have SQL Server 2014 and Visual Studio 2012 currently installed.  And would require that TFS supports both when user goes through TFS.

This is not local and will be on the share...

So I would get this information from you and pass this to my share team to have it installed.  I am sure they already know how to install.  I just need from you a starting point.

What do I need to do first?

Please help and thanks...

Using MBam client on a laptop I had entered recovery key provided by my MBAM 2.5 server.    The problem is that every time I reboot I need to enter another recovery key to access Windows.  

If I suspend Bitlocker then reboot it is ok but Windows resume Bitlocker and then I have to enter the recovery key again the next reboot.

Note that this is a new MBAM 2.5 installation and I had not tried on any other laptop yet.
Laptop is a latitude 7480

Something I do wrong during the recovery?

Trying to install KB4025341 (on various machines).
This is based on Win7 64 bit - up till now the latest patches and drivers all installed.

Issue is quite simple update downloads - goes through the installation process - then fails.
This is the same when downloading the standalone version.

Logged in - each time as Administrator.
Windows errors on update failure equally vague.

Any help would be gratefully received...I have about 40 of these failing.....

I'm trying a new installation of include-media (on Mac) and I'm getting the following error:
Error: Undefined mixin 'media'.
        on line 749 of /Volumes/current/Current/Projects/h5bp-bootstrap4-master/_scss/_project.scss, in `media'

        from line 60 of /Volumes/current/Current/Projects/h5bp-bootstrap4-master/_scss/__main.scss
  Use --trace for backtrace.

_include-media.scss is installed in _scss directory and seems good.

bs4 breakpoint Sass map has been edited to include: $breakpoints: $grid-breakpoints;

[
code]
$grid-breakpoints: (
  xs: 0,

  lg: 992px,
  xl: 1200px

!default;
@include _assert-ascending($grid-breakpoints, "$grid-breakpoints");
@include _assert-starts-at-zero($grid-breakpoints);

$breakpoints: $grid-breakpoints;      //include-media expects $breakpoints

Usage is:

@include media(">xs") {                                   //This is Line 749 which returns the error

Hi All,

2nd time retyping this as I hit the back button :/

I am receiving the following error:
The description for Event ID 32000 from source Microsoft-Windows-Hyper-V-VMMS cannot be found. Either the component that raises this event is not installed on your local computer or the installation is corrupted. You can install or repair the component on the local computer.

History...
I have installed a new server running server 2012r2 on a customers site with a plan to replicate the servers to the new hardware. Switch the live virtual servers from the older hardware to the new hardware.
The 2 Host servers are running MS Server 2012r2
The 4 Virtual Servers are also running server 2012r2 (Two will replicate & two will not)

I was unable to replicate the servers from older host to the new host. So I decided to export then import the 4 virtual servers from the older host to the new host. Worked so all the virtual machines are now running on the new host server.
I then tried replicating from the new host to the older host. Failed again.
I decided to format then reinstall…

I am running a script via GPO to install Shockwave 12.2.9.199
All flag files indicate that the script Started, Installed, Checked and cleaned the flag files and another to confirm installation. But when I check there are only 3 Registry entries in the Uninstall folder, and nothing in control panel.

All my test pc's are in the correct ou in AD and in the scope of the GPO etc.

I have deleted all flag files and deleted all entries in the registry with that uninstall id and ran it again with the same results.

I have also rant the msi and mst manually as well as the reg query for the key and it all works manually.

I have tried it on a few PC's, it worked the other day so not sure if it's been touched and a space somewhere but I believe I have been over everything to make sure the script syntax is ok.

Here is the script:

@echo off

echo %date% %time% Start - Adobe Shockwave 12.2.9.199 Script Started > "C:\Windows\System32\Flags\Adobe_SW_1229199_Prog.txt"

if exist "C:\Windows\System32\Flags\Adobe_SW_1229199_Installed.txt" (
      goto:eof
)

:install
echo %date% %time% Install - Checking Registry for Previous Installation. >> "C:\Windows\System32\Flags\Adobe_SW_1229199_Prog.txt"
reg query "HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Uninstall\{39EA6AA6-F891-4D70-867D-839DA49948D2}"

I'm trying to install windows 10 from a bootable dvd on a Asus N552VX laptop where i just installed a 512GB Samsung 960 Pro SSD into the NVMe slot. The SSD is showing in the BIOS, but I can't get the installation started and is stuck at "No new devices drivers were found. Make sure the installation media contains the correct drivers, then click OK."

I have downloaded the drivers (exe file installation) for Samsung 960 Pro and extracted the driver files (inf+cat+sys) using dark.exe from WiX toolset and 7zip. Also i have downloaded the Intel HM170 chipset (skylake 6th gen) drivers installation and extracted the skylake drivers. I have tried to load these drivers during installation both from USB stick and a burned CD without any luck.

Update: I have replaced a 256gb SSD M.2 with the new 512gb SSD M.2 so the PC should be able to boot from NVMe as it was running Win10 before.

Any suggestions to what I am missing to get the Windows 10 installation running?
