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.

How do I optimize the space Windows 10 takes up on my System Root Drive C: which is a 256GB SSD drive?

My goal would be move as many folders as possible to an alternate but ever present drive,
Most recently with 40GB left  Windows 10 latest version before 1803  on an Alienware R4 17 failed to install 1803 and worse yet it was going to  ad space bring my freespace down further.
Microsoft support has been worthless. They could not even suggest I move Virtual memory to my alternative D: drive and so the space situation on the C: or SSD drive rows worse!

Trying to install the AVAST client software on a new Windows 10 laptop.
Here is the error that Windows gives when trying to install.

Avast Endpoint Protection Suite can't run on Windows.
This app may decrease PC security or performance. Check for an updated app that runs on this version of Windows.
<<Check for Update>><<Dismiss>>
"Compatibility Assistant"

The check for update option just takes me to the Avast website.  

The Avast client i'm trying to install is currently running on 122 copies of Windows 10, five of which are identical laptops to the one experiencing the problem, so I don't think this is an Avast issue.

I have tried to disable the program compatibility assistant, but that does nothing.
Any Ideas?

Thanks,
Paul

It appears that a very recent MS W10 update from last week is causing major problems in some systems.  I have now tried to help two neighbors who have both experienced what I would call is a freeze of the OS and some major functions no longer working properly if at all.  For example, in the first case, there is a screen that asks for the keyboard language and then upon selecting US, it appears to try and boot but just cycles thru the same issue asking for the KB language again.  In the second screen, the Windows Icon in the task bar is inoperative as well as other task bar functions.  I've tried using a W10 Recovery CD and that did not help.  I tried fixing with a W10 installation DVD and that doesn't help either.  I ultimately pulled the HDD out of the system, recovered as much data as I could and then regen'd the OS.  Surely, others are experiencing this issue and there must be a better way to roll back the Update or fix this issue so that I don't have to regen.   There is a button to do the rollback but it doesn't fix the problem.....it doesn't roll back but only brings up the same options screens again.  Trying to use the "fix startup" option does not help either.   Your help is very appreciated.

I recently had to sign into my Office 365 account to download and install Office 365 on a user's computer since the user wasn't available to type in his Office 365 email address and password.

Office 365 on this user's computer is now registered using my Office 365 account (see the screenshot).

What methods can I use to register Office 365 on this user's computer with this user's Office 365 account?

I have a Server2008 standard that wont boot into Windows.  It says hal.dll is missing, however, i think the issue is bigger than that.  When I insert the 2008 standard cd and run repair it says it cant find any disks, same if i go to command prompt and use diskpart list disk or list volume.

If I put a 2008 R2 disk in and run the install it sees the C drive that has two partitions on it.  So the disk are there, the data is still there.

I tried to reinstall the drivers, but they couldnt be found either on the install media or the installed os on the server.

Ant ideas?

running an ubuntu server without language-selector-common nor dbus

hi all, i'm looking for the leanest bloat-free secure possible ubuntu install ^^

- anybody knows what impact i should expect by trying to run an ubuntu server without dbus nor language-selector-common ( which is the only dbus reverse dep and has no reverse dep itself so i assume it is installed with the base system or tasksel )
- as a bonus, the preseed option to prevent it from being installed is welcome

i'm working on a skeleton for servers so i could not care less about breaking gnome or whatever other desktop which i do not plan on installing anyway.

i'm stuck with ubuntu so please don't suggest alternative oses or distributions

what i'm trying to figure out, is what is expected to make use of either of the above package on a server ( if at all ).

Hi there,

I'm trying to deploy Fuji Xerox (ApeosPort-V C7780) drivers via SCCM but haven't been successful yet.

Running the exe that comes with the downloaded driver package doesn't work as it prompts to specify the printer IP address etc.

I've tried using Pnputil command "pnputil /add-driver device.inf /install" but that seems to only add the driver package to the FileRepository and not install the driver.

Also used the Printing Admin scripts "cscript "C:\Windows\System32\Printing_Admin_Scripts\en-US\prndrvr.vbs" -a -m "ApeosPort-V C7780)" -i "C:\device.inf" but got the error "Unable to add printer driver ApeosPort-V C7780 win32 error code 87"

I'm wondering if anyone has successfully mass installed Fuji Xerox MFD drivers before..?

Thanks.

I am trying to figure out how to re-allocate space on a new VM installation for a server.  I need a C drive of around 100gb and the rest a D drive.
I can't seem to determine where this is done.  I am going back to the VM installation and do not see an area to do that.  If I need to trash the installation and do it over I can.

Hi!

This is Apoorva. I use HP 530 laptop and have recently installed original Windows 7 and activated the copy with the original key. I ran Windows update last night and in the morning when I woke up, I noticed that 110 updates have been installed so far and Windows Updates is now stucked at the installation of Update # 111 which is for KB2813430. It is almost 7-8 hrs I guess but it is just not moving ahead. Does anybody knows why and a solution to it?


Please refer the enclosed screen capture.

Stuck.  
Default Windows Bluetooth Stack on Surface Pro (2017) will not pair/function with a specific device (Heart Monitor, that will only function as a master).  Want to install an alternative stack such as Toshiba, or possibly Bluesoleil.
  • When I've tried a basic install of Toshiba 9.10.39 from a setup.exe after uninstalling the Windows / Marvell Avastar, it doesn't associate with the hardware.  
  • Same is true with Bluesoleil.
  • When I've tried installing the Toshiba 9.10.39 stack following the instructions at http://www.wiinupro.com/tutorials/Toshiba-stack and modifying the tosrfusb.inf with the device ID for the Marvell hardware, it does associate, but it won't function due to 'registry errors' reported by the device in device manager.

My source on the driver is a package geared toward Intel hardware, and I don't know if drivers are ever stripped down to apply to only a specific piece of hardware.
  1. What is the best source for the driver?  (latest I see via google search is 9.10.32 (or maybe .34))
  2. How to associate the BT stack with the on-board device?
  3. I'd love to be able to ultimately install from the command line.

Thank you.

I am having an issue installing MS Project. I purchased the 2016 MS Project through Office365. When I download from the 365 portal and install I get the message that it can't install because the "Click-to-Run and Windows Installer editions of Office programs don't get along for this version......"
. Is there any way around this?

Hello,

I'm attempting to load an intermediate certificate on Exchange 2013. I followed the steps outlined and it goes well until i reach, check for pending request status in Exchange Admin Console. On the EAC there is no pending requests for this cert. I verified the certs loaded correctly into the Intermediate Certification Authorities.

Are there any other ways to get pending request to show up or maybe I can import this cert an entirely different way?
