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 accidentally crippled the Win10 apps on my PC, and am not sure how to fix the issue.  Here are some of the symptoms:

*) Edge opens and then immediately closes (in less than 1 sec)
*) Neither the calculator or the photos apps will open
*) Uninstalling / re-installing apps fails, although I am able to open the Windows Store
*) When in Settings -> Apps, the Background Apps shows a blank list (no apps are listed)

I used the Remove-AppxPackage command in powershell to remove some of the bloatware, and I got a little de-crapifying-ly happy.  So while regular programs work fine (Firefox, Chrome, Word, Excel, etc.), I think I accidentally uninstalled something that the core app system needs to function.

Any help is appreciated

Hi, been trying to install microsoft updates and ocassionally some of them fail and i sometimes have success running them again but what i wanted to know is lets say i tried
installing an update last month and if it never succeeded but i was able to get the following month's updates all installed then would the previous month update that failed be included in the subsequent month's updates.  For example in february i tried installing kb40446 and it failed then would the march updates contain that kb40446 in the latest updates?  Thanks

Hi,

I can't find the Microsoft Office folder under Programs (x86).  Any ideas why this is missing?  I'm able to use the Microsoft applications just fine but in order to install a vendor add-in correctly, they said this folder needs to be present.

Kindly correct me if I’m wrong on the Less DSN File:
(1)      Once the ODBC string is done and tested from the developmental computer, that ODBC less DSN File will move with the application where it goes, the only thing to be done is install the correct ODBC version on each work station AND install the database on central place while the work station will either have full Ms Access or Runtime + ODBC.
Questions
(1)      What about those who are using VPN can the same ODBC mentioned above work since this is just a network or an extension of the local network as long as the server instance name is correct
(2)      Instead of hard coding the server name, I want to create an extra table to be storing the server names so that if the user is using the application for first time then they need to key in the server name which must off course be stored in the table. For example, the table will look like below:
SQlID (PK)
ServerName (Txt)

Path: Driver={ODBC Driver 13 for SQL Server};server=localhost;database=WideWorldImporters;trusted_connection=Yes;


In VBA how do I reference the server name control where it says server=localhost
Currently I always ask the clients to give me the server name and manually type in the connection string in the development computer and compile the app before sending, for sure it does give an error after compiling due to change of the server name, but where it goes it never give any error because it will be pointing to the correct server, for example if the …

Hi all,

We had a KMS host that was recently decommissioned without us knowing it had the KMS service on it. We then started getting several users complaining about Office 2010 Professional Plus and Windows 7 asking them for license activations, and this has been increasing daily.

That host was a physical server that cannot be brought back up anymore, so we are trying to build a new KMS host.

I'm hoping someone has the experience in doing this as I am not too clear on how to proceed.

- I've set up the KMS host role on a Server 2012 R2 Standard edition
- I've downloaded and installed the KMS host set up for Office 2010 professional plus from here: https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/download/confirmation.aspx?id=25095
- Once installed, this is where I ran into some confusion. It asked me for a host key, but my volume licensing center doesn't have anything under "Office 2010 Professional Plus KMS Host Key" - so I put in the KMS key for Office 2010 Professional plus.
- I ran slmg /sdns, then restarted the Software licensing service

My questions are:
- where do I get the Office 2010 Professional Plus KMS host key from, if it's not in the VLSC portal?
- we are having the same issue with Windows 7 licenses. Do I create a seperate KMS server for those or can it be done on the same KMS server?
- is the host key separate from the products I am trying to license?

Any help would be appreciated. Thanks!

i've been having the hardest time using PowerShell v6.1, which I downloaded after already having a 5.1 install.

When I launched powershell via the command line (by typing powershell), the 5.1 kept coming up.

I finally went and manually deleted one of the entries in the path leaving only the path to v 6 and then typed the command powershell and it said command not found.

Finally then, after looking around, it seems I have to now type pwsh vs. powershell (because there no longer is a powershell.exe?)

When did this change?

I am planning on replacing an amount of Cisco WS-C2960S-48FPS-L switches in out environment. My basic plan is as follows;
1. Upgrade new switches to latest recommended software
2. Install stack modules where appropriate
3. tftp the config from the existing switch(es) to tftp server
4. tftp the config to the replacement switch(es) from tftp server
5. physically swap old/new (paying attention to VLAN/significant connections)
 
Questions;
1, Does this sound like a good approach?
2. How best to handle instances where switches are stacked? Do I need to tftp the image to each switch in stack or just the first (ie will stacked switches adopt the config from the first)?
3. In instance of stacked switch upgrade do I need to replace all switches in the stack at the same time (to ensure hardware/software compatibility)?
4. Is there anything I am missing or need to pay attention to?
 
This is the first time I have had to go through this process so your expert advice would be appreciated.

I am trying to install Phpki on a SME-Server.   In the initial Setup screen I is asking the following.

"Storage Directory *
Enter the location where PHPki will store its files. This should be a directory where the web server has full read/write access (chown phpki ; chmod 700), and is preferably outside of DOCUMENT_ROOT (/opt/phpki/html). You may have to manually create the directory before completing this form. "

It gives the example of :

"/opt/phpki/phpki-store"

The server's Primary Dir has three  folders

Primary -  cgi-bin
               -  html
               -  folder  -  phpki-store


I was thinking  about putting  phpki-store under folder which is at the same level as the html folder,   I'm not sure what they are asking for.

I have a debian machine with a linux header pkg half installed:

# dpkg -s linux-headers-4.9.0-8-common
Package: linux-headers-4.9.0-8-common
Status: install reinstreq half-installed
Priority: optional
Section: kernel
Architecture: all
Multi-Arch: foreign
Version: 4.9.144-3.1

Open in new window


Does someone know how to fix this issue safely? So far, any attempt to reinstall it or upgrade it has failed, and I am not 100% sure that a force-remove will leave the machine in an inconsistent state, since the headers are pretty central to the linux core.

I suppose that I could reboot into a previous kernel and delete this version and reinstall it or install a superior one.
Any other suggestions?

I have attempted to reinstall office on a laptop from O365.   I have verified the account was properly setup from Microsoft's portal (portal.office.com).   The account has an office 365 license associated with it, and I am able to login to the portal with this account and download and install office new on this laptop.  

However when I get to the activation portion and click the sign in button and enter the email address that I logged into the portal with I get an error that says the following.
We couldn't activate Office

We couldn't find any Office licenses associated with (un@domain.com....I am protecting the actual account name.)  If this isn't the account you used to buy or subscribe to Office, try signing in with a different work, school or Microsoft Account.

Try a different account name
Help help with this error.

This machine was reinstalled from scratch with OS drivers etc and now O365.   There was no previous version of office installed.   I have uninstalled and reinstalled this twice now and still getting the same error when I attempt to activate it.  Any assistance would be appreciated.

Hello Everyone,

This is going to sound like a dumb question and I feel stupid even asking it, but am sufficiently confused now that I have no choice. LOL!
We have 2 new servers that the vendor team needs to work on to install products etc.
I was asked to purchase two Remote Desktop CALS so they can connect and did so through a reseller.
See item below
RDS server for 2 Remote Desktop CALI then  started looking for a way to integrate these so they can be used. Eventually I read about needing an RDS server and that is when the confusion began. We recently updated our AD with two new 2016 DC and bought the 400+ User CALS required. However, I never came upon anything that stated that I needed to install licensing servers, etc. nor did any vendor tech helping us out ever mention it and we do not have one installed. So is the RDS server merely for the Remote Desktop and is it a feature installed on the two servers the vendor needs access to, or am I missing a serious piece of the AD puzzle that will eventually cripple us?
Thanks in advance for all insights.

We are attempting to install drivers from the dell website, however, when clicking on the executable files (ex: Network_Driver_D8VDT_WN32_22.3.108.0_A03.exe), we are recieving the following error message: "The procedure entry point could not be located in the dynamic link library kernel32.dll"

Has anyone ever run into this issue in the past, and if so, is there a fix?

I am concerned; I close to buy a Power 9 (IBM SYSTEM) to replace our AS400 (ISERIES).

This sales is through a business partner. We only need the equipment with the last OS and releases and also the last PTF for the that OS, we will transfer the information from the AS400 TO POWER 9.

My business partner says

Agnes,

This system will ship with the IBMi OS installed with the latest RS (re-spin this is a re-spin of the OS with PTF’s) level that is available at order time. This is not the latest PTF levels but it does have PTF’s already installed on the OS. The system will also ship with the latest RS level of the Program Products.  If SFNH(ME) wants to install the latest level PTF’s this also would be SFNH's(ME) responsibility, but the OS will come with some already installed.

Is this true? the equipment doesn't comes with the last PTF? so I have to pay to somebody else to apply the rest PTF's? and what about the OS release now is 7.3 have to come with that right?

Please if somebody knows about this could you please guide?

Thank you for your help
