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.

Hi,

Is there a generic way (not per type of installer) to check, via Powershell after an unattended install, f.e Firefox.exe /s, if the software installed correctly?

You have the log file, the exitcode, but that's no guarantee that the shortcut is there and the program starts correctly.
F.e. can I find the installpath before install (from the exe or mis), also the shortcut and check then.if shortcut is there and starting exe is not generating errors?

I need help in deciding path forward for our MS Access database.

Recently my old company was bought out by another and the new company changed the network topography. They removed network drives and went completely cloud base. We are using OneDrive platform. OneDrive does not support MS Access functionality at all. I cannot share our MS Access database with multiple users, because OneDrive replicates back-end for every user that links to it. so I needed to place back-end on every user’s computer. As result, I have several versions of the back-end and we do repeat inspections as result.

I am looking for a way to solve this problem, but also a good path forward with MS Access database, and I need your advice.

I have considered the following things:

1.      Use a virtual server to host our Access database
2.      Install MS Access 2010, change database to web apps and then host it on an older SharePoint server.
3.      Use an SQL server, and migrate MS Access back-end to SQL or AZURE and somehow link it to the front end. I read about this online, but not sure how much work will be involved.
4.      Completely redesign the database to SQL version or other version
5.      Leave as it is and deal with it.

The company is willing to pay for the hosting, but I am also looking at path forward and future of this database. Its quite developed and very useful for many personnel.

I need your expertise advice since you all know ins and outs of other databases.

Thank you.

I have to setup Office 365 ProPlus on a new 2019 Remote Desktop Server. I have successfully setup the RDS and am able to log into it with my users. Now I need to install Office365 for my users. I have downloaded the ODT and created a folder under C:\Office for my install files to go.

My configuration file is as follows:
<Configuration>
  <Add SourcePath=C:\Office OfficeClientEdition=32>
  <Add OfficeClientEdition="32" Channel="Monthly">
    <Product ID="O365ProPlusRetail">
      <Language ID="en-us" />
    </Product>
    <Product ID="VisioProRetail">
      <Language ID="en-us" />
    </Product>

After running the command setup.exe /download downloadconfiguration-Office365-x86.xml I get the following error:

Error message
It appears that it creates the "Office" folder in the correct place but does not download any files. What could I be doing wrong? I have internet and connectivity. My issue is clearly something with the xml file as far as I can see.

Hi there,

I am unable to create a signature in my Outlook.
When clicking on the signatures button it does not respond.
I have done some research and most people say it has to do with another installation of Office that comes with Windows 10 in the form of "MyOffice" or "Office" from the Microsoft store.

I have uninstalled both of those other options and reinstalled my Office365 Business Premium version of Office at least 3 times with no success in being able to create a signature.

Also, I started Outlook in administrator mode and was able to open the signature tab.
Once I closed Outlook and repeated those steps, it no longer was able to open the signature tab.

Attached is an image of all the buttons currently affected by this error. It is not only the signature tab being affected.

Hello - I am looking for EPSON WF-7010 Series driver for windows 2012. The file that I had on server and used it in the past is WIN32-Explorer.ps1, however it does not have all the features  such as Legal paper tray . it only shows Letter size page.
Support.epson.com does not have any driver for Windows server 2012 .

I guess the best is to install windows 10 driver on each Windows 10 workstation rather than install it on server and share it.
Does anyone have any better idea? --Thanks

In my setup there is a DC running on win2016 / server A  -  and Exchange 2016 running on win2016 / Server B.

My intention is to re-install server B with a new win2016 / Exchange 2016.

The DC and the AD should be prepared to the new Exchange installation (due to the former)?

So i just have to follow the Exchange set-up wizard?

/Thanks

Hey Experts!  Running into a rather odd issue and figured I'd ask the community of experts.

I'm using the Intelligent Provisioning > Express OS Install on a DL160 G10 server and the options available to install from is:
  • DVD Media
  • SMB/CIFS (Windows Share)
  • An anonymous FTP Server
  • Install ClearOS from internet

I don't have a DVD drive and the ClearOS isn't the OS I need.  I thought there would be a USB option but I don't see it.  Is there a way to add that option?  Is there an updated provisioning version I need?  I haven't run into this situation before and I'd like to get Windows Server 2016 on this server.

I appreciate everyone's help with this.

Hi,
I need to install :
".NET Framework 3.5 (includes .NET 2.0 and 3.0)"

on multiple Windows 10 as its required by older software.

When I try to install it I get :

Windows features Screenshot
Error message



Windows couldn't complete the requested changes.

The changes couldn't be completed.  Please reboot your computer and try again.

Error Code: 0x800F0954


The customer has WSUS and Windows 10 appears to be trying ot get this install from WSUS.

Why can't it find it / get it from WSUS ?  And why can't it download from Microsoft directly if that fails ?

A client of mine has 10-15 HP laptops that are 3-4 years old, and have been taken off their books. The controller said that he is going to give away for about $50 each as is, no operating system. They had Windows 10 Enterprise loaded on them with an i5 and 8GB memory. Good little work horses.
The controller asked me to put together a package (as a consultant) to purchase enough Windows 10 licenses and install W10 on them and run the updates. It would then be sold as is, no warranties.

My questions are:

Which version of Win10 is best for this?
What is the most cost effective way of purchasing them?

Cost to purchase laptop + cost of license + cost of my services = Final Cost of Laptop to employee.

I am also going to include my business card with the final product and offer my services to them (as a consultant) to hopefully be able to support them.

TIA

I have Darter Pro Linux Laptop running Ubuntu 18.04 LTS (64-bit).  It was shipped with vi editor pre-installed.  In following thread I asked how to install vim.
https://www.experts-exchange.com/questions/29165311/How-to-install-vim-in-Linux-laptop-that-is-pre-installed-with-vi.html
I selected following solution.
>> vim and vi in newer versions are one and the same, run vi --version;

Attached version information shows that I have vim 8.0.  I think lot of features are missing.  There is no multiple file support.  I open many files from
command prompt but only One file opens.
There is no support for python.  See attached     -python3, meaning python3 feature is missing.
Also, it says small version without GUI.  Please see attached version information.

Hi everyone,

I have 10-14 Mac Book Pro and Mac Mini's ready to be imaged.  I'd like to install the OS via the network rather than using a USB medium.  I'm familiar with the concept of NetInstall and I've got my custom corporate image on one USB.  Can I use the NetInstall method and somehow bind the image, then deploy it to my assets?

Thanks.

Hi,

I d like to automate power app deployment toolkit a bit.
Therefore I d like to adapt the ps1, example below, using powershell.

https://github.com/PSAppDeployToolkit/PSAppDeployToolkit/blob/master/Testing/Deploy-Application.ps1

What I d like to do, f.e. Firefox
1. copy psadt framework  to location
2.replace in the ps file the variables by my variables, like (example)
[string]$appVendor = 'PSAppDeployToolkit'
      [string]$appName = 'Test Script'
      [string]$appVersion = '1.0'
      [string]$appArch = ''
      [string]$appLang = 'EN'
      [string]$appRevision = '01'
      [string]$appScriptVersion = '3.6.8'
      [string]$appScriptDate = '02/06/2016'
      [string]$appScriptAuthor = 'Dan Cunningham'
      ##*=================================
3.replace the install command-line by the one  define

That would be then
Create-psadtpackage -myconfigfile which then contains all params needed.
That way  can update the psadt framework WITHOUT the need to overwrite the working psadt (I d just overwrite only the variables I define in myconfigfile.ps1

Please advise.

My setup is DC Win2016 and Exchange 2016 running in Hyper-v environment and 5 users.

My DC needs to be restored from a 2 month old copy due to corruption (i tired to repair tools and setup an other "BDC" but is was not able to do due the job).

In the 2 month period there has been no new users / change to the users - only e-mails, contacts and calendar traffic/changes.

I don't "expect" the Exchange server to be "happy" seen and old DC?
Is the solution to dismount the DB´, install a new Exchange and mount the DB?

I am facing another strange issue.  I am installing ESXi 6.5 into my Dell m1000e enviroment on M820 blades.  The environment already runs 6.0 fine.  I'm starting from scratch on the hosts rather then upgrade.  The vCenter Appliance is a new deployment as well.

Install of the Dell Customized ISO for Update 3 was fine.  Set management address and VLAN and pings were successful.  But... I can't get to the WebUI from my Windows based PC.  The login page does not display at all.  But the catch is the my ChromeBook CAN access the WebUI fine as well as a Linux system.  I can't add the new host to the new vCenter either.

A few things to note:
1)  I already tried multiple Windows systems, both Win10 and Win7.
2)  I put the ChromeBook, Linux system and one Win7 machine connected via the same exact patch cable eliminating all possible variables in the network path and still can't access from Windows but can from the other two systems.
3) vCenter appliance is on the same subnet as the host.
4)  Already have verified Windows firewall is disabled.
5)  Windows machine can access the web interface of the 6.0 hosts fine, which are the same subnet.
6)  I tried a regular 6.5 ISO, but it didn't have the correct NIC drivers for the M820.


I have a ticket open with VMware as well, but that isn't getting me anywhere yet.

Needing a little assistance here on a renewal and installation of an Exchange 2010 certificate. Yes, believe it or not we are still running Exchange 2010, small company and not a need to go away from basic email. I used to have an outside service do this for us since we have no Exchange admin anymore, however the company no longer offers this service. I had to do this now after not finding a resource. I have done the research and did the following.  I created a new certificate request through the Exchange management panel (Go Daddy certificates renewals for whatever reason doesn’t work well with Exchange 2010 renewal function and needed to create a new one and rekey it on their site), filled in all of the fields for the items we use like OWA and internal DNS and External DNS names, including the auto discover. Once I got my req file I entered the info in the CSR request on Go Daddy, I got my new cert. I went back and assigned my cert through the exchange admin console and it said it successfully was installed, however I have not assigned any services to it yet. I was reading that I needed to install the p7b file in the certificates folder in IIS through the MMC, but when I checked the IIS certificates folder it was already there?, but I hadn’t installed the pb7 yet?  Thoughts. Also willing to contract someone for an hour for remote support to double check work and any other fixes needed.  Thanks everyone.  I have until Dec 6th when the old certificate is no longer valid.  …
