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.

Does anyone know how to install windows 10 on a new dell laptop?  I've nuked the OS partition and the dell recovery tool wants the system drive.  For all intents and purposes, the original hd is toast.  Is there a download that will automatically detect that it's a Dell OEM pc and let me reinstall on a new harddrive??

Thanks for any help!

New Exchange 2013 installation. Want to confirm that my internal DNS server has the correct Autodiscover, mail, webmail entries. I have just entered the entries on my SANS cert into our internal DNS server but I have doubts whether this is working correctly 100%. This DNS server and email server sit in our .local domain.

Good morning

Could you check this out and please do criticize it as much as possible. I want this to go smoothly :D

-----start-----

We will first start with the DL360s, known going forward as the “Management Cluster”. The justification for using these first is purely because they hold the IT Infrastructure and will allow for small issues due to the fact they won’t impact production or end user use.

1.      Log onto VMware (https://Server/vsphere-client/?csp)

2.      Migrate all the VM’s off of Server01.Doimain.com onto Server02.Domain.com manually.

3.      Drop serverl01.Domain.com into maintenance mode. This previously has caused purple screens, hence the initial move.

4.      Obtain a formatted USB Key media.
 
5.      From that drive and directory, execute the downloaded SoftPaq file: Simply double click on the SP99298.exe file and follow the installation wizard to complete the SoftPaq installation process. At the end of a successful installation of the SoftPaq a web page will automatically appear to provide you with the different methods for restoring and/or upgrading the firmware on the system.
 
6.      After the USB Key is created, you may delete the downloaded file if you wish.
 
7.      Insert this USB Key into the USB Key port of the system to be updated and power the system on to boot to the USB Key.

8.      Shutdown the host and boot from the USB key

9.      Install the latest BIOS version

10.      Shutdown the server

I support a Resident Community which makes available to its residents (who don't own a PC of their own) 3 PC's (Win10 Pro) installed in a "common area".

Someone bent on playing pranks has been corrupting the computers by deleting programs and/or "resetting" the computers to factory settings, forcing a re installation of the OS and the programs (Word, Excel, etc....)

I have resorted to a program called "Deep Freeze"  which returns a computer to the state it was in at Log In, regardless what was done.  The program is password protected.

Somehow "someone" has gotten around the program and continues to perform their mischief,

Question:  Has anyone encountered a similar situation and found a remedy?  Please help!

Thanks,

I am wondering if there is free software out there that can accomplish differencing on a file system level as well as in the Windows Registry?

I am wanting to see what files are installed during an installation and what changes are made to the registry.  Sort of like taking a snapshot before the installation and then immediately afterward and comparing the 2 versions for differences.

Thank you,

Tom

I have a problem with a third party piece of software integrating with Microsoft Office (2016) in Windows 10. According to the manufacturers of the third party software, there are registry keys left over from a previous installation of Office.  If I remember rightly, I had to reinstall Office due to some problem. I am guessing that when I uninstalled the first installation of Office, it failed to remove some keys. So, I would be happy to remove all traces of Office and start again. Does anybody know how I can do that? Does software exist that will do that for me?
Thank you in advance.

in the first windows was working perfectly ….. then  I got some kind of green screen of death saying some sort of unknown error … then it got into automatic repair loop  I tried every single fix out there on the internet but all failed ….

I'm trying to install Office Plus 2016 on a new machine which never has any Office installed. Whenever I run the installation file, it would get this error message and the installation is aborted.

"The following product(s) can't be installed at the same time:
ProPlusRetail"

I have tried suggestions from the following thread without any success. Does any one has another idea?

We currently have 200 android tablet devices in a CLOUD only environment, no on prem.

What i would like to do is for the tablets to have restricted internet access, what is the best way to do this? Do not want any app installation or the use of a subscription such as openDNS where there is a cost associated to it. Cant use free as there are restriction on additional entries (may be wrong)

Anyway, would love help with this and what I can do to achieve this, as I said we are cloud based and using MerakiSM MDM to manage these. Step by Step would also be appreciated.

Thanks

Urgent, please.

We are trying to install Microsoft Excel 2016 standalone onto a user computer that already has a copy of Microsoft Access Runtime on it, and we are receiving an error message about a conflict between the installation mechanism used by Microsoft Access Runtime and the copy of Excel we've just downloaded  (Picture attached).

Office Click-to_run encountered a problem because you have these Windows Installer based office programs installed on your computer:

Microsoft Access Runtime 2016

Click-to-Run and Windows Installer editions of Office programs don't get along for this version, so you can only have one type installed at a time.  Please try installing the Windows Installer edition of Office instead, or uninstall your other Windows Installer based Office programs and try this installation again.


Uninstalling the Access Runtime is not an option.  (It's needed for Microsoft Dynamics Management Reporter.)

This is urgent in that we must have Excel running on this computer ASAP.  

We've contacted Microsoft, and they have escalated this to Level 2 support, but they will not be able to get back with us until tomorrow.  Unfortunately, we need to have this running tonight.

THANK YOU for your help...

i guys, has anyone had any luck booting to PCIe NVMe cards?

I have a 12G and 13G server that I have tried putting this card in https://www.amazon.co.uk/gp/product/B072ZPMR43/ref=oh_aui_detailpage_o04_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1

I have enabled UEFI and installed the OS on both systems, however it will refuse to boot to this device, it just keeps saying there is no OS found etc. Been at it a few days even trying to use the lifecycle controller to install the OS with no luck.

Hi All,

I need to do an in-place upgrade on a Windows 2003 32bit server.

I have the 2008 32bit dvd and it appears to install without issue.  But it hangs when the operating system gets to the green loading bar (looks like a caterpillar).

In safe mode it gets upto;

Loaded:  \Windows\system32\drivers\crcdsk.sys

Reading a couple of posts I thought swapping the BusLogic controller to a LSI Logic SAS would help, but it hasnt.

Some extra info:  I suspect the original server was P2V'd and the ESX version is 5.5


Any suggestions

I'm receiving the following Error when installing Exchange 2016. Let me Describe what all has taken place.

We sat up a 2012 server and installed Exchange 2016 on it. It Ran fine but we did not do any migrations to it at all. Then one day we went to start things on it and it was gone from our VM'S didn't even have the .vmdk or anything. So we spun up a new server 2016 and gave it a totally diffrent name and went to install exchange 2016 and that is where we are today with the following error in the attachment.

When trying to install software (anything using an msi), I get an error that Windows Installer does not have permissions [Error 1719. The Windows Installer Service could not be accessed. This can occur if the Windows Installer is not correctly installed. Contact your support personnel for assistance.]. Things that have been tried:

- Unregistering/reregistering
-Fixed Registry entries
-Copied Registry entries from a working installation
-Copied files from a working installation
-CHKDSK
-SFC scan
-Repaired all file permissions from default on the entire C: drive
-Ran the TronScript

Does anyone have any ideas on how to resolve this problem without reinstallation/replacement?

You must have Administrator priveleges to install these files.  Please contact your local system administrator.

I have completely uninstalled Adobe 2017 and office and it works for an administrator but gets this message for other user.  I have also given them administrative rights and still not a go.  

Any direction would be much appreciated.
