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.

We have  Microsoft Surface computers with a small SSD for our pupils to use. Very often the kids, curious as they are, click on the pre-installed apps to see what will happen, resulting in disruption of class as they suddenly realize that they are about to install something, or that we find them not listening as they are happily playing a pre-installed game, etc. For this reason, and in order to reclaim disc space, we would like to find ways to free up as much disk space as possible, but in a way that does not risk Windows 10 stability, etc. I have read on several different websites that it is possible to reduce Windows 10 footprint in various ways. Below I have listed some ways I have found on the Internet, and I would very much appreciate if you could comment on any of these suggestions if they are wrong or if the will create a more unstable system, or if there are better, alternative ways of reclaiming the disc space, and finally, if there are additional ways of getting more free space on your tiny SSD? Thanks!

* Use Disk Cleanup

* Uninstall default apps and bloatware that are shipped with Windows 10. For example, 3D Builder, Flipboard, Mail, Microsoft Edge (I will use Chrome). Some of these I can uninstall from the Control Panel, to remove some I seem to have to use PowerShell. Or should I use PowerShell for all apps and bloatware I do not need? And are there any apps that should not be uninstalled because it will make Windows not functioning properly?

I have an HP EliteBook laptop that was getting a new image. This is a G2 laptop. Anyway I started the laptop image in the Microsoft System Center\software center. Selected the name-G2 - ME firmware - install bios - and googleDriveSync. I then selected and downloaded the ME updater. The firmware finished. Then in the bios I selected fast boot, PXE internal nic, PXE internal IPV4 nic, and under secure boot config I selected UEFI native without CSM then under device settings checked the box that said SATA device mode set to AHCI, VTx is checked  and G2 only then saved it. Then the user grabbed it before I could start the rest as I had to make a call to another user. She took the laptop and now it will not boot to any OS and goes to shut down mode. I was told that this would make a brick out of the laptop? Is there no way to get this laptop back to factory settings without a new motherboard being needed? This is really my question.

Dell openmanage server administrator do not run

Hi all
i can't run dell openmanage server administrator cos this

The installer has detected that the HTTPS listener is not configured for Windows Remote Management. You can either configure the HTTPS listener before installing Remote Enablement, or install Remote Enablement now by selecting the "Custom" installation screen and configure the HTTPS listener later. See the "Remote Enablement Requirements" section in the Server Administrator Installation Guide for information on configuring the HTTPS listener. Note: Remote Enablement is required to manage this system from a remote Server Administrator Web Server and is applicable only for those systems that support Server Instrumentation. Click here to configure HTTPS Listener for Windows Remote Management.

I tried installing Windows 7 Pro on a (rather old) computer.

When booting I got "boot manager is missing" or something similar wording BEFORE the Windows welcome screen.

I replaced the disk thinking there was damage to the disk.  SAME THING.

I am concluding there is something wrong with the computer (or maybe the installation CD) since I used two different HDDs, one of them out of the box.

Any Ideas?

I have a Windows 7 machine that will NOT install KB4056894 or any of the subsequent Rollups and I need help!  I'm at my end.

They are the ONLY updates to not install.  It will attempt to install, restart, and fail at 98%, then revert. 0x80070057

I have performed an in-place upgrade in an attempt to repair it.  I have manually downloaded the update and attempted to install.  I have renamed the SoftwareDistribution folder.  I have ran sfc /scannow (no issues) and the System Update Readiness Tool. Beyond a wipe and reload, I don't know what else to do.  Suggestions?

Recently downloaded and installed FileMakerPro16 Advanced on my Windows 7 computer. Download and install seemed to go OK.
I was able to open a FileMaker 10 file (.fp7) then save as (.fmp12), but when I tried to run a 'Data Design Report' I get an error:
"The file 'DDR' could not be found and is required to complete this operation."
How do I get or create a DDR file?

Yesterday I installed the "stable channel" Docker for Mac (I'm running OS 10.13.4).

Following these directions: https://docs.docker.com/docker-for-mac/#preferences-menu I was able to install and see Docker from a Terminal window but pretty soon the directions start to reference "Preferences" and there is no Docker icon in my Menu bar.

I've moved the Docker Icon from applications to my Mac Dock and literally nothing happens when I click on it (e.g. there is no dot indicator under the program that it's running).

How can I get to Docker Preferences? Am I hosed and need to start over or am I missing something obvious?

Thanks!

Hi:

I have Windows 7 Pro SP1 installed. I use WeBuilder as my IDE. I recently upgraded from WeBuilder 2016 to WeBuilder 2018 after asking support how to keep the active files (in the tabs) when upgrading. They said that I should backup the settings, which I did, uninstall 2016 and install 2018, which I did. Unfortunately, when I opened the app the files were gone. After back & forth comms with support, they said the file list was likely held in the registry and that by installing 2018 the list was most likely deleted.

My question is this: If I uninstall 2018, reinstall 2016, then restore windows to the time before I uninstalled 2016, would you expect 2016 to recognize and show this list of files in the app?

Thank you

We have a client running SBS 2008 as a VM.
I have created 2 additional VM's running Server 2016 standard, 2016 VM1 ive created as a BDC of the SBS2008 box.
2016 VM2 i plan to install Exchange 2016 on.
On installing Exchange 2016 it is detecting Exchange already installed on the SBS 2008 VM which it wants to be upgrade, its also asking that the "Forest Functional Level" be elevated to 2008 R2 to allow install to continue.
I wanted to install a "Clean" copy of Exchange 2016 and just import individual .pst files into new mailboxes.
I'm looking for guidance on how best to move from Sbs 2008 to 2 2016 Servers.

Thanks in advance

Hi -

I've got a client that has a file server with 2008 Standard installed. The directory service event log is reporting AD corruption in ntds.dit. It's the only AD on the network. Very few changes have ever been made to it and until now, no problems whatsoever. It's a small office with only a few employees now which is probably why it's gone unnoticed for so long. I was able to trace it back to a power outage on 10-29-2015 when apparently the battery backup had failed. All the existing users seem to have no problem. I only noticed when I had to install a new machine for a new user on the network and tried to join it to the domain.

So, apparently the only backups are of files (including the offending ntds.dit), but not the "system state". I did find a couple backups that do go back far enough, but it's an image of the entire volume. In the spirit of trying to save myself some time, since this is the first time I've ever run into AD corruption, I thought I'd post here and see what my options are... or if I even have any other than to start over from scratch because of a single line of text in a 14 MB file...

Question:
Once I backup all the current data, is there any way to perform ntds.dit "surgery" (or replacement) to clear the corruption? Even if it means re-creating the users and permissions, at least I wouldn't have to reload a 7 year old server. Thankfully, we're only talking about 3, maybe 4 users here.

Lost Firefox bookmarks:

I recently reinstalled Windows 10 and my wife's bookmarks were not backed up and I forgot to do so.  Windows 10 was already on the computer when I reinstalled it and I did a clean install.  Is there anyway to get the .json (firefox bookmarks) file back?

Hello all,

How to create a batch script to look for file on DFS share.
we have unique configuration file for different computer. My batch file should look for the computer name and match the file in DFS share and take the settings.
For example: I have two computers to install setup.exe
computernames: pc01 and pc02
when Irun script on PC01 it should check for computer name and match that with file on DFS share and then run setup.exe /config \\sfsshare\pc01

any suggestions?

Testing application deployment with SCCM current branch to a user collection. I made a mistake and improperly deleted an application (failed to retire it first, and delete revisions prior to deleting app). I then recreated it with a different name.

What I have in my test user's Software Center is a listing for the now deleted application. The last attempt to install this initial application failed.  The status still shows it as failed. I have rerun all the actions in the Config Mgr client on the test user's computer (namely "Application Deployment Evaluation Cycle" and the "Machine Policy Retrieval & Evaluation Cycle", and even the "User Policy Retrieval & Eval Cycle").

I found one suggestion to delete the DP copy. This is an application. So while I "distributed the content", I don't see a directory that matches the application ID anywhere on my distribution point. So I can't see how to try this.

[update] The test user only sees the deleted application in Software Center from the computer the install was originally attempted (it always failed - which is why I deleted it).  When the test user logs in to another computer, the deleted application is NOT listed in Software Center.


I've seen plenty of posts about this issue. I surely won't delete an application the wrong way again. But I need to make sure this ghost is gone before I start using Software Center for all our end users.

Is there a way to enable spell checking in Word 2010 using a registry key change instead of modifying the installation? We have around 150 laptops in the field that need to have word spell check enabled, and I want to push a registry key, or a batch file out to the laptops to do this.

Thanks very much

I need to install printers on multiple computers, having to do it one by one would be very time consuming so I would like to automate the process with Powershell.

I would like to install a printer with the Generic / Text Only driver and configure the driver to user -PaperSize A4, the Paper Source should also be set to "Continuous feed - No break" but I cannot find any way to change this in Powershell.

I'm new to Powershell and this is what I got so far:

Add-PrinterPort -Name "PPORT" -PrinterHostAddress 192.168.1.200
Add-Printer -Name "Labeltest" -DriverName "Generic / Text Only" -PortName "PPORT"
Set-Printer -Name "Labeltest"
Set-PrintConfiguration -PaperSize A4 -
