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 am trying to install Sharepoint 2016 and have just been running into issue after issue. I have tried all suggested solutions available but have had no luck. Any clue why this is happning? The prerequisite installer (such a terrible and useless tool IMO) failed to install anything during the prerequisite installation process so I had to install the prerequisites manually. I tried reinstalling WCF data services 5.6 tools using the prerequisite installer in command line with the correct parameters and had no luck. I have tried reinstalling the .net 4.6.2 framework as well.

I am running a fresh install of Windows Server 2012 R2 and the database server is running Microsoft SQL Server 2014

Here is the error:

One or more configuration settings failed. Completed configuration settings will not be rolled back. resolve the problem and run this configuration wizard again. The following contains detailed information about the failure.

Failed to create the configuration database.

An exception of type Microsoft.Sharepoint.Upgrade.SPUpgradeException was thrown. Additional exception information: One or more types failed to load. Please refer to the upgrade log for more details.

I have also attached the error log. Any suggestions?

I am trying to install .net framework 4 and it is taking alot of time. I have tried to manually force the windows installer and also downloaded another offline installer but still the same.

It takes more than an hour for the framework to install which is very time consuming.

Hello,

We are on our way to a full migration from Office to GSuite here at my agency.  We are wanting to phase out Word and Powerpoint from our users but stil allow them to keep Excel.  Is it possible to utilize a group policy to push a silent removal of these 2 pieces of the software?  Is there a better way to do this?  Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks

Hi

A user is unable to print to her local USB printer apparently following the installation of a Windows update early August

When opening the RDP session the local print queues appear to be correctly replicated

When I send a print test the job transits via  the RDP session print queue and then disappears

I tried connecting to another terminal server and was able to print
The only difference I can see is that the first session connects to a server via a Windows PPtP link

Is this a known problem ?

thanks

We had a XXX ransomeware attack on a cloud server running Windows 2003 R2. I would like to reinstall an old application, Accpac 5.0, from the installation files on the server but each time I run the setup.exe program I get the NTVDM error. The installation files look intact. I suspect this is related to a problem Microsoft had with WOW32.dll on the server and the16 bit programs talking to each other. We have run these setup programs before without this error years ago or we were able to ignore it. Does anyone know a fix for this?

I have a kickstart file that I am using to deploy ESXi which uses the following command:

install --firstdisk=local --novmfsondisk --overwritevmfs

With this command I am planning on installing to the 'Internal SD:IDSDM' but after installation completes it appears to have been installed to the other device 'Integrated Raid Controller 1 Perc H730 Mini'. I will be deploying ESXi using this method to hundreds of servers so would like to define this within the kickstart file if possible rather than making a change to the boot order etc.

I noticed when testing this that the boot order on my server was the 1 = Internal SD, 2 = H730, so I would have assumed in this case that the firstdisk switch would identify the Internal SD card, but it appears not!

Anyone have any ideas?

This has to be some simple setting, however, I have googled and googled to no avail. After I enter data into a cell and hit return, Excel underlines the entire row. This is not a new installation, just started doing this yesterday.

This is a Windows 10 installation where it appears an update went bad. Tried to restore from the only restore point the day of the failure but the system restore failed because it couldn't write the registry. Tried bootrec /fixmbr, restore previous build fails.  ''[['Is the only option to reload the OS?

During windows installation, the part where it says "Install Windows." Get the message "A required CD/DVD drive device driver is missing. If you have a driver floppy disk, CD, DVD or USB flash drive , please insert it now." Have had this problem several time before on other PCs. Usually I can remove the USB Windows installer to another USB port and continues fine. But now its not working.

hi guys

So I am going to be installing an SSL certificate on a Linux Amazon EC2. I created the CSR on this instance so I will need to apply the SSL to it to complete the installation.

It is a wildcard SSL certificate. So then I will need to export this SSL certificate and install it on another instance and turn off the other machine. On Windows I know how to export it as a .pfx and install it on another instance, but I don't know how to do this on a Linux machine. It is an amazon EC2 instance.

Are you able to help me accomplish this? What commands do I have to run to export this and then install it again on the new instance?

Thanks for helping

I have an older XAMPP installation hosting one website that went down. I have backups that I created using mysqldump before the crash and was wondering if I bring up a new Linux, Apache, MySQL, PHP installation would it be possible to do a restore. What should I be looking out for before rebuilding this server? If the versions of the various components are different will that affect the recovery?Thanks.

Hi, I am in possession of a mac from a former employee.  I can tell a new user with administration rights was created before the employee departure.  I am suspecting this new user was then used to securely delete the former employee’s user account.  The former employee would have had administration privileges on the Mac, so this would have been entirely possible.

Does anyone know if there is a log generated for this action?  Normally I would look in “private/var/log”, but I am not sure which file to look for.

I am also certain that a factory reset was not performed on this machine since the installation logs go back a couple years.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Can anyone assist me Please.

I had a new Actiontec router installed on August 29 and since then my computer freezes every ten minutes for one minute. You can set your clock by it. After a number of hours with tech support who have no idea I have looked at a number of things. I had the installation tech back. His computer does not freeze. We patched mine through an ethernet cord -- it runs fine. It appears to have something to do with my wifi adaptor. I have a realtec 802.11 card. What I found in looking at the device board is that a series of WANmini ports installed at the same time as my router. Could they be the problem? Do I need them? Can they just be removed or do they need possibly to be replaced?

After successfully installing the VHost portion, I'm attempting to install the PSC and VC (as separate appliances as recommended) and getting extremely mixed signals.  Since this is a test network without ent. environment, I'm using non-server grade equipment and local network infrastructure.  OptiPlex 790 with 16GB RAM, 500GB SSD... have tired the host being both in legacy mode or UEFI mode (host seems to not care either way).  Since the host installs and no errors/glitches on its front... created a few simple VM's (DOS, windows workstation) and they run without glitches tells me that it most likely is not because I'm not using 'officially supported hardware', although I guess the appliances being Linux based, I haven't tried a basic Linux VM to see if it is stable.

Anyway have DNS setup, created both A and PTR records for the host, psc and vc then verified that they are resolving both ways on a non routeable IP (192.168.1/24) using domain of mydomain.local.  Have the DNS forwarding on to actual DNS server for and setup a Windows box pointing at it for DNS to test and all systems/apps seem to function fine.  Being sure to have DNS forward was a big deal as the install would almost always fail as during the config. of both the psc and vc you have to set a time server and if either cannot actually access, all kinds of erratic failures ensue during either stage 1 or stage 2.

Install psc first and (after ensuring ntp resolution and both the host and local windows I'm …

Hi freiends,

I have a couple of machines (same hardware) to be set up identical with SUSE Linux Enterprise Server 12.2 and some special application software. The machines run with a RAID1 HDD configuration (mirrored disks).

After completeing the first machine, I did image backups from all partitions (with the tools fsarchiver and partclone from the latest SystemRescueCD) and restored 'em onto the next machine with the same set of tools ( ... yes, I did transfer the partition layout, too). Unfortunately that machine didn't boot up SLES afterwards.

Out of curiosity I installed a plain SLES 12.2 on the machine then and immediately did the image restore afterwards. Now that machine boots up. I presume that the SLES installer writes something into the UEFI BIOS to let the machine boot from the SLES partition.

Is there any way to circumvent that otherwise useless SLES installation step by tweaking the UEFI BIOS settings ?
Is there anything I could/should/must "clone" to the other machine (and, if yes, how) ?

I tried to install a copy of Windows 7 Professional on my Lenovo G50 laptop.   The DVD boots normally from the boot menu and gets as far as "Starting Windows", but does not get any further.   I tested the DVD on another computer and it proceeded past that point.   I did not continue with the installation on the second computer.   Is there a setting in the BIOS of the Lenovo that prevents another OS being installed?   It has Windows 10 Home.

Hi
am a bit puzzled with how proxy server works, This is simply set in user's IE setting pointing to Proxy server for internet access (lets say site A is where the proxy server is located)

here is the confusion, remote site B users use the same proxy configured same as the above in IE, they are able to access internet successfully. I am trying to install Sophos Central (.exe file) on machine's in site B which needs  an active internet connection for the installation to complete successfully as its Cloud based and needs to communicate/download over the internet.

The issue is it can't communicate with Sophos Cloud portal and the installation cant continue, the only way I can get it to communicate is by using Netsh - netsh winhttp set proxy proxyservername:portnumber, on the computer and then this allow the installation to complete.

So my question is why doesn't IE proxy setting work for this Sophos installer but the above command does, what's the difference between them and how can I go about installing this on other computers without having to manually type this command on every machine?

Thanks
