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.

Exploring SharePoint 2016

Explore SharePoint 2016, the web-based, collaborative platform that integrates with Microsoft Office to provide intranets, secure document management, and collaboration so you can develop your online and offline capabilities.

I have a client with PowerEdge T410 with just about 1.6 TB of space to back up and using a USB 3.0 backup device, and it takes about two full days to backup the unit.  If I could install a PCI or PCIe USB 3.0 card into the server, the backups would happen much faster.  

I've read that there will be incompatibility issues with installing such an adapter into the server.  

Can anyone comment on how this can be done successfully?

Thanks much.

Hi,

For the last several weeks the latest Windows 10 update goes through the update process and fails.  

I've run through the troubleshooting guide with no luck.  Also downloaded the current W10 install package onto a thumb drive and it wasn't able to install either.  Doesn't appear to leave a trail in the system event logs as to why.

Any suggestions?

Thanks!

Hello experts - I'm looking for some advice on how to handle application deployment and updates.  I work for a small architectural company that is growing fast.  I've been able to manually deploy software for the last few years but we're set to grow even faster in 2020 so I need to get away from this.  I'm looking for a solution that will allow me to easily deploy new applications and application updates from a centrally managed location.  I have a total of three offices with approximately 100 staff.  We use standard design tools like the Autodesk architectural suite, Bluebeam, Adobe products, Lumion, Sketchup, and soon Office 365.  The Autodesk deployments give me the most trouble since it is a very large install that takes me 5-6 hours to remove the older version and get the latest installed and patched.  I'd very much appreciate any recommendations on ways to get away from manually deploying all of this each year!

I am trying to image one new workstation successfully so I can deploy that image to others. Sysprep has crashed every machine I've touched. Every new machine I run Sysprep on, it no longer boots. It gets a missing Winload.efi error. Should I be disabling Secure Boot before I run Sysprep?

I am running Sysprep from several new Windows 10 machines to get a base image. I patch Windows, install Office then run Sysprep....OOBE - Generalize - Shutdown.

Is there something I'm missing when running Sysprep?

Hello everyone, I got a new install and the user can not find their Adobe Acrobat DC 2015 software, is there a way I can get the serial number from software and download another copy of Acrobat DC 2015 and use that serial number?

Hi,

Finally, My Dell Power Edge R 510 is running Windows Server 2019 (actually, it is a straight forward installation).

Now, I want to install VM machines in this server.

As Dell Server, my experience in VM machine is also limited.
Can somebody direct me what would I do to create the Hyper V server 2019?

Thanks,

I have installed SEPM 14.2 in an air-gapped network, and am using the .jdb file to provide signature updates.  When I create a client install file, it keeps giving the error that the signatures are out of date or the signature is is unusable.

I have used cleanwipe to clean up the client install, then recreate the installer files from scratch and try again, but can never get a working client.

I reverted back to SEPM 12.1.6 to test, and it works fine, but unfortunately 12.1.6 is not compatible with the latest versions of win10 so I need to use 14.2.

Any ideas?

Migration Of Exchange 2010 to 2016 questions.  We want to install Exchange 2016 in our 2010 environment for coexistence.  Due to the nature of our organization we need to do it as gradually as possible, minimizing downtime.  

We already did the schema update and other pre-reqs prior.  This weekend we want to run the install, configure scp and urls.  

Besides a couple test users, we don’t want to move any mailboxes yet.  We want to make sure the 2016 To 2013 proxying works first.  

Do we need to configure any send or receive connectors at this point?  We also have many systems that relay off exchange.  Can they be left on 2010 for now?  

Also, I see the OAB needs to be configured on 2016.  Will Exchange 2010 clients use that or only after their mailboxes are migrated?

We have a Windows 2012 Essentials Network, and for some reason we can not run an Time Clock Plus 7.0 install on any Server or Computer, it is being blocked at the point of clicking on the .exe
Does anyone know what process is needed to eliminate this and allow the .exe to run on the network, via Servers or Windows 10 PC?
Every Time we double click on the .exe file we get this alert:

" Error opening installation log files. Verify that the log file location exists and that you can write to it."

I'm experiencing issues importing a newly purchased SSL certificate on my app server. I've already imported the intermediate certificate to my local intermediate cert authority store. I'm performing the following:

Access server certificate list => complete certificate request => browse to crt file => input a friendly name => choosing personal (as opposed to web hosting) for store location => ok
Navigate to website => edit bindings => the certificate I just added is not listed in dropdown of available SSL certs
Navigate back to server certs => the certificate that I added is no longer there

Open mmc => certificate => local computer => personal store => I’m able to view the certificate in question there

Trying to install Windows 2012 on an HP Proliant G8.  Server has an HP Array 420i and 8 1.2tb sas drives.  I create a partition and use both the intelligent provisioning and just a boot DVD.  Get to the Windows portion, select the partition and get the error message "Windows cannot be installed to this disk. This computer's hardware may not support booting to this disk. Ensure that the disk's controller is enabled in computer's BIOS menu".  I have changed to AHCI and are still experiencing an issue.  Any suggestions?

We are trying to install Adobe Acrobat 17 on certain employees computers. The install will complete after putting in the serial number. But once you try to launch the application it pops up for a moment and closes out. At this time the EULA is supposed to pop up and accept it. But it does not. So the software is in a forever state of opening and closing and not allowing us to accept the EULA. I have tried running it as an administrator and this still happens. Any advice would be greatly appreciated!

I have a CentOS 7.7-1908 clean install on a sever.  I was having trouble with YUM updating packages and I attempted to clear out the broken YUM records and start fresh.  I made it worse, and now the server isn't working at all.  I keep getting a message:

[root@localhost ~]# yum update
Loaded plugins: fastestmirror
Loading mirror speeds from cached hostfile
There are no enabled repos.
 Run "yum repolist all" to see the repos you have.
 To enable Red Hat Subscription Management repositories:
     subscription-manager repos --enable <repo>
 To enable custom repositories:
     yum-config-manager --enable <repo>


Only there are no repositories in the list when I try to run the suggest commands.  Is there any way to get this back without wiping the server and starting over?  Tried some research but nothing seems to work.
