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 think an install of McAfee corrupted Windows 10.

"System restore" not enabled.

"Windows Repair" feature cannot repair installation.

Where to now? - (preferably without the nuclear route of a Windows re-install!)

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

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?

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?

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.

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?

I have a 2012 Standard r2 Server that i have installed Quickbooks Enterprise Solutions 17.0. After the installation i can not get the QuickbooksDB27 Service to start. I have uninstalled reinstalled many times. QB 2014 worked fine. When i first try to start the service i get an error that the user login failed so i reset the password for the .\QBDataServiceUser27 user and then try to restart then i get Windows could not start the QuickbooksDB27 service on the Local Computer. Error 1053: The Service did not respond to the start or control request in a timely fashion.

I adjusted the Time out in the registry for a longer time and same thing. I have spoken to Intuit and that is just a waste of air. This is a single server running as a guest on a 2012 r2 Std Hyper V. It has roles of DC, AD, File, RDS,

Any one have any suggestions.
