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 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.

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.

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) ?

Good day to all! My name is Kelvin and I am experiencing difficulty with upgrading to IE 11. I have seen a lot of circulation around this subject, which has been useful information, but nothing exact to my situation. Let me explain. I am use Win 7 Ultimate 32-bit, presently on IE 8, but trying to upgrade to IE 11. I have seen literature surrounding leaving the dialog box open, which I have and did the two commands of :
 
dism.exe /online /add-package /packagepath:C:\Windows\temp\IE1CF18.tmp\IE11-neutral.Extracted.cab /quiet /norestart
 
dism.exe /online /add-package /packagepath:C:\Windows\temp\IE1CF18.tmp\IE11-neutral.Downloaded.cab /quiet /norestart
 
But according to the log:

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

Dear EE,
 We have RHEL 6.5. ...OS running Apache 2.2 web server. Now we need to upgrade it to Apache 2.4. This is a Linux server environment hence no direct connection to the internet . Is there a way we can upgrade to Apache 2.4 using rpm files and what are the quick installation steps ? I am not the original configuration guy for this server so really careful not to break anything. Kindly advise. Thanks !

I am looking to setup Suricata at home use with an inline setup.  My capacity is 100/100, so I am looking to support this speed with min impact.  My network is not heavily used - I have a couple of computers/ios devices.

The unit will be in the closet, so I am looking for low power/heat, ideally fanless, but I am ok with a quiet fan if needed.  I have a Synology 413 if there is any offloading that I can leverage that for - using supported apps (I am not looking for custom installation on the nas).  

So:
1)  appropriate hardware
2)  from a setup perspective, can I leverage my Synology

Thanks

I'm trying to restore a mksysb resource defined to NIm to a different server. The rootvg is mirrored. I have two identical disks on the target that have a base os installed. I want to overwrite the rootvg with this mksysb install. This is aix 5.3 tl12-04.  After communication is established with the target and the installation process starts I get a error..
An invalid disk (00-08-00) was specified in the location field of the data file.. Looked it up and ignored this to continue the install.
When I try to continue the install with the default options.. I get another error...
Not enough disk space selected to contain the operating system.
No disks show up on the selection panel.
I only have the two sas drives that are identical in size that the rootvg was copied from.
Any suggestions would be appreciated,

I have inherited a tar.gz that is a supposed backup of a moodle installation that got deleted (the whole VM before I got here).  The tar.gz contains directories "moodle" ,  "moodledata"  and  the file "moodle.database.mysql".  There are two other tar.gz files here that one that contains the contents of the  "/var/www/html/moodle/"  directory and one contains the contents of the /var/moodledata/  directory.

Is there anyway we can reconstruct the course \ class structure in a new installation of moodle (preferred) or reconstruct the whole old installation?

Looking at Ubuntu Server 16.04 as the host OS for the new Moodle installation.

Thanks in advance!

Hi All :)

my issue is most of the updates i try to install on the file server fails with [reverting back changes], i tried so many things with the server: clean boot - system file checker - chkdsk - restoring the image health using DISM from a WIM file - renaming the software distribution folder

i also tried to install the updates in the below link one by one in order from bottom to up with a restart in every installation but the server got the first 3 updates only (KB3172615 - KB3179575 - KB3185280), the rest failed with the message [reverting back changes]
https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/help/4009471/windows-server-2012-update-history
