Hi,
  I am trying to install KB2922223 on a machine which has Windows Embedded Standard OS version 7.
  When I am installing it is saying the update KB2922223 is already available on this computer. But when i see
  in the installed patches, I could not see it listed there.  And when I use the powershell script get-hotfix also it is not showing as installed. So basically though it is not installed it is treating as installed and not going ahead with installation. Anyone come across this scenario?

Thanks,
Ashok

Hi All,
I have a client with an older Macbook Pro.  She wants to give the computer to another person.  I have removed the OS in the  macOS Recovery console.  When I got to Reinstall Yosemite, it prompts to enter an Apple ID/PW.  I have tried entering the current owner's Apple ID/PW, but will not let me download the OS.

I have tried:
-Also in the Recovery Console, I have gone to help, logged into iCloud using my client's credentials, then reverting back to the above steps, but still no luck.

Question:
How can I reinstall Yosemite onto the Mac?

What is the best and most efficient way to install images on machines.
I know there are Acronis and ghost, but also Microsoft has it's own program , but it takes more time to install.

Which one do you recommend? I want to be able to press a certain key a boot with PXE from the network or a bookable USB and install the image from a shared network location.

I'm currently setting up an Exchange 2016 migration from Exchange 2010 and I'm getting error 500 and at times 503 when trying to access 2010 mailboxes from within the 2016 webmail.

So currently the 2010 installation is still internet facing and functioning correctly, webmail allows access to mailboxes, outlook is working along with activesync. However when trying to access 2010 mailboxes from the URL https://exchange2016.domain.com/owa internally, I can access a 2016 mailbox without any issues but not a 2010 mailbox.

The 2010 installation is setup with NTLM and basic authentication and I have following the following installation documentation:

Thanks in advance

Hello,

I have a couple Windows 7 PC's that are connected via USB to HP Scanjet 5590 PC's.  I installed the latest HP Drivers and TWAIN drivers.  I then configured the HP Scanning software so that when you push a button on the scanner, your documents scan and email automatically.  However, every time the PC is rebooted I need to reinstall / repair the  TWAIN driver.  Once I take that step, everything works until I reboot again.  I'm thinking it might be related to the Windows acquisition service, but I'm willing to listen to all ideas

Thoughts?

A customer brought in an HP Laptop. The issue as described by the customer: The laptop randomly shut down one day, when she turned it on said that the OS was missing files required to boot. The customer proceeded to do a recovery. When the recovery was finished the computer turned on and had an error related to heat/ CPU fan (I saw this error when I first turned it on at my shop). The laptop would continue to not load into windows.

My process:
I first opened up the computer and cleaned all of the dust and hair compact that was in and around the fan and heat sink prohibiting the computer from properly cooling (there was a significant amount it). I removed the heat sink itself, cleaned both it and the processor, re-applied fresh heat sink paste, re-assembled the computer. I did a fresh installation of Windows 10 - installation completed successfully, booted into Windows as would be expected. Proceed to do windows updates, laptop randomly restarted and proceed to continue looping through the automatic repair. The issue seems a lot like hard drive failure to me so I removed the hard drive and tested it - it tested good. However, I was still suspicious and thought maybe hard drive so I installed a test hard drive, re-installed windows 10 - as before, the installation completed successfully. However, almost immediately got stuck in the loop again.

I am not getting any error messages. I am not sure if there could be some sort of intermittent power failure on the board - or…

I have reinstalled Windows 10 from media a few times on one computer. After the first reboot it does not find the windows installation. There is one SATA drive in the computer.

I boot up from the DVD and go to command prompt. I have tried:

Diskpart – list disk – select disk 0 – list partition – select partition 3 – Active.  That returns “The ACTIVE command can only be used on fixed MBR disks.”

I tried converting to MBR and reinstalled but no luck.

Diskpart  - list disk - select disk 0 - clean

bootsect /nt60 c: /force /mbr  -   bootrec /fixmbr -   bootrec /fixboot -  bootrec /rebuildbcd

When I list partitions, I have:
Partition 1 – system – 100 meg
Partition 2 – reserved 16 meg
Partition 3  - Primary – 465 gig
Partition 4 - recovery – 450 meg

Been install OS’s since DOS 3.0 and never had this much trouble.  I’m still wondering why format is not an obvious option during install like it was in all previous versions of Windows.

I recently took over a project to install Exchange backup. I am exploring several backups like NetApp SME, EMC's AppSynch. One of the requirements for the EMC's AppSync is that you have to have Exchange management tools on mount server. I am familiar with pre-Exchange 2010 management tools and NetAPP's SME and how they work.
I was reading the Exchange management tool installation guide over the internet and found it nothing like Exchange 2010 management tools. I do not see much about Exchange 2016 backup and AppSync/NetAPP SME requirements.
Is anyone using Exchange 2016 management tools and any backup software?

I am looking to setup project server in conjunction with a current installation of sharepoint 2016.  Through the Microsoft website I found a trial installation at https://products.office.com/en-us/project/enterprise-project-server where it says "Try Project server with SharePoint 2016".  When I click on that it appears it wants to download SharePoint 2016.  

Does anyone have experience with this?

hi,

Now I am getting ready to install MariaDB (fork of MySQL ) Galera Cluster, what I want to install is the latest edition from Redhat linux repository.

from: https://mariadb.com/kb/en/mariadb/what-is-mariadb-galera-cluster/

the most stable one should be MariaDB 10.2.7 , is that right?

I'd like to list down the steps I will take and please suggest if there are anything missing for version 10.2.7 :

from :https://mariadb.com/kb/en/mariadb/yum/#installing-mariadb-galera-cluster-with-yum , it said:

"Galera Cluster is included in the default MariaDB packages from 10.1, so the instructions in this section are only required for MariaDB 10.0 and MariaDB 5.5."

so I just need to do:

1) sudo yum install MariaDB-server MariaDB-client

this one should not need :
sudo yum install MariaDB-Galera-server MariaDB-client galera

as this is for MariaDB 10.0.x or below, right?

2) when do I need this mariaDB.repo ? when the first time I install MariaDB package ? before  step 1 )  above ?

"# MariaDB 10.2 RedHat repository list - created 2017-08-07 04:53 UTC
# http://downloads.mariadb.org/mariadb/repositories/
[mariadb]
name = MariaDB
baseurl = http://yum.mariadb.org/10.2/rhel7-ppc64le
gpgkey=https://yum.mariadb.org/RPM-GPG-KEY-MariaDB
gpgcheck=1"

3)
after installation done by step 1) , do this to start the MariaDB cluster DB:

sudo systemctl start mariadb

4) after that, do I need to Importing the MariaDB Signing Key ?

sudo rpm --import …

I've developed a Visual Basic application on a Windows 10 Pro Computer.  I have created the setup/installation using Indigo Rose Setup Factory.  
When I try to install the application on a Windows 10 Home computer the application fails to run.  Why?

What files must be included in the installation?

All the exes & dlls in the Release folder has been included in the setup.

If I install the app on another Windows 10 Pro computer it works fine.

Quick question.

I'm trying to do more with Powershell with regard to installing software. However, we have multiple sources for software so using absolute paths (ex. \\server01\software\package.exe) is not a good option. When creating Windows batch files I've found that using %~dp0 is enough to tell the script to search the folder it's in or one below, such as:

"%~dp01\Software\Version\setup.exe"

I've looked online for a Powershell equivalent, the closest I've found is $PSScriptRoot. But it relates to scripts and not to launching EXE or MSI files (as I understand it).

Short version, is there's a relative path variable cmdlet that can be used when pointing to an executable?

Is there any way in InstallShield that we can identify which files need to deploy and which not on user machine basis of which option is selected by user?

We want to combine two InstallScript setup to single Basic MSI project because both setups using lot of same screens and logic even some common deployment files.

For example Simple Feature Setup is deploying file1, file2 & file3 while Advance Feature setup is deploying file4 and all the files which is deployed by Simple Feature setup.

So in new setup we will add screen where user can select whether wants to install Simple Feature or Advance Feature.

Hence my goal is if user selects Simple Feature then file4 sholud not deploy on user machine while selecting Advance Feature it sholud.

Hello -

I am looking to deploy a application within SCCM 2012 and the application is a .exe and vendor says it doesn't have any installers to accommodate any management installation platforms.  I'd like to know how I can use a batch file to run exe and silently without any user interaction. I can push out from SCCM and place package in Software Center to be deployed , however there is a popup that needs software license agreement to be checked. I do not want users to have to do this and I want it silently installed. Is there any way to accomplish this with .exe?

Thanks,

I have a Toshiba laptop Satellite S55. Recently the hard drive crashed BIG TIME.  Obviously I'll need to replace it.

I hate to say this, but it seems that I do not have a backup for everything on the drive, just programs and data that I saved to an external hard drive.

The computer came with the Windows 7 built-in, no installation disk.  Is the OS ON the crashed and worthless drive or is it stashed away someplace else on the computer so recovery is possible? There's a permanently attached label on the bottom with a Microsoft product key on it.

Hi Experts,

I am using OUTLOOK2010 on a EXCH2013 server.
Since two weeks I have the problem that I cannot create a new folder in my PST or in my archive.
I have restarted the machine.
I have repaired office installation.
Nothing helped.

I always get this error:

Do you have any idea why this comes up ?

So I had to install a fresh brand new empty hard drive on my laptop.  It does not recognize anything, so I'm trying to install some drivers.  Specifically the WiFi driver so that I can run an HP utility that should update all drivers.  I've also tried to download some USB drivers, because none of the USB ports are working.

I tried to install the drivers from the HP website and nothing is still working.  It looks like other non-HP websites are selling drivers for my laptop, but it doesn't seem like I'd need to pay for these and I'm also concerned about viruses from these non-HP companies.

Can you point me in the right direction?

Hello,
A user asked me to install Project pro 2013 in her computer that has  office pro 2013 installed already. I have purchased the project license key in one of this site where you can download the .exe installation software and enter the key at the end.
The installation stops with the error 1706 saying:" Error 1706. Setup cannot find the required files. Check your computer connection to the network, or CD ROM Drive....." (see pic attached).
Note that:
I tried to fix office pro 2013  (already installed) but that did not fix the problem
The installation works fine in other PCs in the same network
I tried to disabled the antivirus as well as firewall, but that did not  fix the problem
I was trying to install the trial version and enter the key after (as said in another post) but I cannot find the trial version of office pro 2k13
The user has administrator rights.
The problem shows also when I log in the same PC as a different user[/list].

...I used all my resources and I gave up.
hope you can help.
