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.

It is a VM under Server 2019. It was activated. I then had to move it to a temporary server and now it is back to the original server but it is no longer activated. I still have the product key but when I go to "Change Product Key" I get the attached screenshot. It started out being a fresh, clean install of Windows 10 so I don't know why it thinks it wasnot activated prior to upgrading. It has to be a false error. Any ideas on how I can reactivate?

Learn Ruby Fundamentals

This course will introduce you to Ruby, as well as teach you about classes, methods, variables, data structures, loops, enumerable methods, and finishing touches.

We have a clean install of Windows Server 2008 Standard R2 and SQL Server 2014.    One of the *.bak files was restored from our damaged RAID 5 drives.    I've found instructions on how to restore with SQL 2005, but nothing for 2014.    I have very little knowledge of SQL, so I'm unsure whether I need to create a new database prior to the restore or whether it will recognize that it's not there and create it during the restore process.  The developer who installed and configure our database a couple of years ago is out of the country and not near a computer.  Can someone walk me thru it, or point me to instructions?  

Thanking you in advance.

Install a Windows 10 update from a command prompt, or how to upgrade to Windows 10 from a command prompt?
Dell Latitude 7490
OS: Windows 10 version 1803, I believe
Challenge: The system would not allow the user to log  into Windows 10 desk after installing Dell Command Update
Things already done: Let Windows 10 repair itself
Enter the advance boot menu and try to enter Safe Mode: Unsuccessful
Confirm that ACHI is enabled in the BIOS
Ran a hardware diagnostic test: Which passed
The restore of Windows 10 failed with the option to keep the files.
SFC from the command prompt did not work
Propose: Decrypt the SSD which is encrypted with Symantec Endpoint Encryption ( not sure of the version) then sysprep the OS and let it run again
Next propose: Execute a DISM command from the command prompt
Any ideas?

We are about to setup a new server. the Server has 24 cores. we purchased 1 16 core license and 4-2 core licenses.

we only have the 16 core license right now and the other 8 are on back-order.  

Can we still setup the server with the 16 cores license for now. or do we have to wait for the other 8 before we start the install.

Need the correct syntax for a simple batch script to check if Office 2016 is installed and if it exists then exit. Otherwise run the custom install.  I'm probably way off but here's what I'm working with:

@echo off
if exist "C:\Program Files (x86)\Microsoft Office\Office16"
then exit
else start \\SERVERNAME\Office16\setup.exe /adminfile \\SERVERNAME\Office16\Updates\Office2016.MSP

Doing the install with a Shutdown GP and it works with just the \\SERVERNAME\Office16\setup.exe /adminfile \\SERVERNAME\Office16\Updates\Office2016.MSP

Problem is it will install every time the PCs are restarted.

I have a new laptop computer with M.2 SSD drives.  The attached pictures show the errors that occurred in the past two weeks.  I’m wondering what this means and was this related to an update or do I have something wrong with my drive?

Hi
I'm trying to test weather Visual Studio Code - Code Editing. Redefined with the Excel Viewer - Visual Studio Marketplace plugin will work under fedora 12  stand alone (No Internet)

I have a fedora 17 running in a VM VirtualBox at home, I know it's the wrong version, but I figured it would be close enough for this test
having tried to install visualstudio code on the stand alone I know it has dependencies  See Here

unfortunately the Firefox  version wont load the above links, Nor experts-exchange.com, I keep getting connection reset errors other pages load like google and stackoverflow

The Guest additions won't install either so I can't access drives on the host machine, a USB drive nor shared clipboard etc
I get error
Guest additions: Kernel headers not found for target kernel 

Open in new window

Tried to run
yum update kernel

Error: Cannot retrieve metalink for repository fedora. 

Open in new window



Any Suggestions?

Hi Experts,
A few years ago I used MSI to create Access installations but it lacked some functionality I needed.

I switched to InstallShield but it became too expensive so I switched to SageKey.  Now SageKey have discontinnued support for their product although it is still available.

I just checked on MSI again and it appears that Version 5.0 will do what I need.

However I can't figuer out how to get it and install it on my Windows 10 PC.

Could one of you advise me how to get and install it?

PS: I'm currently developing in Windows 10 - Access 2010 but will be upgrading to Access 2016 soon.

Thanks,
Bob C.

I have been tasked with the configuration of multiple PC's for client use.  I want to make sure that I set them up consistently.  I have done a little research, and I think that I should be able to use Powershell to create users, configure firewall settings, and possibly install software.  I know that there are applications that are specifically designed for this, but I do not have access to them at this time.  Is powershell even capable of doing what I'm looking for and where would I find resources to help me develop the solution?

Skype for Business sometimes detect the compatible USB head phone, other times it does not.
What could cause the above problem?
I am thinking there is possible corruption on the SSD.

Do I need to install the Plantronics software and see if it detects the headset.
I have not tested the headset on a different laptop to see if the problem happens again.

Hello,

I am in the process of migrating a 2010 Exchange Server running on Windows Server 2008 R2 Standard (Service Pack 3, update roll up 21)  to a 2016 Exchange server (CU 12) running on Windows Server 2016.
I completed all of the prerequisites and proceeded to install the Exchange 2016 role. Once I got to step 11 out of 14, it errored out on the mailbox role with the following message.

Error:

Over the weekend we had the VM that hosts our AAD Connect server fail.  It is a very simple configuration where 40 users and a few distribution groups are synchronized with Azure AD / Office 365.

I have a backup of the server from about a year ago and our configuration hasn't changed since then, but I wonder if it is better to restore the existing backup or perform a new install of AAD Connect on a new server.

My concerns are:

1)  If I restore from the existing backup, (that is out  date), will the sync database be out of date and cause issues with our Office 365 deployment?

2)  If I do a fresh install of Azure AD Connect and configure it using the same settings of our old deployment will it continue to update our existing objects?

My biggest fear is if I do a fresh install it will delete the objects that are currently sync'd with Office 365.

Thanks for your help and input.

Exploring SQL Server 2016: Fundamentals

Learn the fundamentals of Microsoft SQL Server, a relational database management system that stores and retrieves data when requested by other software applications.

I'm testing an exchange 2010 to exchange 2016 upgrade on my home lab.  Running into problems

I found out about a few things after running the install, however since I repaired the errors the only available installs is to use the /mode:recoverserver switch which also kept failing until i found all the pre-requisistes.  Now I finally got it to install (under the recoverserver switch) but the ecp panel won't open or any owa url.  

When I run "Get-OwaVirtualDirectory |fl *URL*,*auth*,*path*" on my new 2016 exchange I get my existing lab 2010 web server both internal and external.  I'm confused because I thought from online instructions that I should be able to view the ecp on the 2016 before I start moving over mailboxes and traffic.  However I can't seem to kick open the owa correctly on my new 2016 exchange that I had to use recoverserver switch on a install that never completed.  

any ideas what i can try to get the 2016 exchange ecp working?

VM won't boot on esxi 6.0 host. I uploaded the installation media iso to run a repair and the command prompt is showing me it found no Operating Systems when running the bootrec /rebuildbcd command.

I aslo tried SFC.EXE /scannow /offbootdir=c:\ /offwindir=c:\windows      ...which said corruption was detected?

We converted this vm from a 6.5 esxi host using vmconverter.

We don't have the vm it was originally converted from.

I'm installing this version of Visual Studio Code on Windows 10 desktop pc.

VSCodeUserSetup-x64-1.32.3.exe
https://code.visualstudio.com

I noticed that the default installation directory suggested by the installer is: C:\Users\Owner\AppData\Local\Programs\Microsoft VS Code

p1.PNG
I tried to install it to this directory: C:\Program Files\Microsoft VS Code
But it gave me an error and wouldn't let me install it here.

So then i changed it back to this installation directory C:\Users\Owner\AppData\Local\Programs\Microsoft VS Code
and the installation ran fine and installed fine.

Any idea of the reasoning for this?

I have an Excel query which lists install dates.  I am currently filtering this column between beginning of the month and end of the month for the previous month.  I am trying to use a custom function that will dynamically filter the install dates between the beginning of the month and end of the month for the previous month.

For example:
For the month of March I would filter the column between 01/03/2019 and 31/03/2019 in April.

For the month of April I would filter the column between 01/04/2019 and 30/04/2019 in May.

Thanks,
