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 tried to install a copy of Windows 7 Professional on my Lenovo G50 laptop.   The DVD boots normally from the boot menu and gets as far as "Starting Windows", but does not get any further.   I tested the DVD on another computer and it proceeded past that point.   I did not continue with the installation on the second computer.   Is there a setting in the BIOS of the Lenovo that prevents another OS being installed?   It has Windows 10 Home.

Hello Experts,
after Power failure my private ARM cubietruck's linux installation was broken. I have the suspicion that squid3 cache_dir has broken the filesystem. All most important files are "restorable" unfortunately without some squid3-Files.

Optional I can use different store types for cache_dir cache_dir and I wonder if there's a way to use external storage (NFS, SSHFS etc.) for it (within a mount) .

thx+

Dear experts

We use a client managment software which comes with a tool to create a GPO to install an agent on the clients.
The registry entry that the GPO inserts in the clients registry looks like this (I edited a few names and values):

[HKLM\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\Winlogon\GPExtensions\{aaaaaaaa-bbbb-cccc-dddd-eeeeeeeeeeee}]
@="Agent Provisioning Extension"
"Install"=dword:00000001
"SomeHostName"="server1.com"
"DistributionServer"="\\\\server2.com\\Share"
"AgentMSI"="some.msi"
"dateCreated"="30.08.2017 15:01:02"
"dateModified"="30.08.2017 15:01:02"
"DLLName"="\\\\server2.com\\Share\\Deploy%PROCESSOR_ARCHITECTURE%.DLL"
"ProcessGroupPolicyEx"="ProcessGroupPolicyEx"
"NoUserPolicy"=dword:00000001
"RequiresSuccessfulRegistry"=dword:00000001

I don't have the slightest idea how this installs a piece of software and what all the keys and values are good for and would like to learn as detailed as possible what's happening when windows finds this registry entry. My question therefore is, where would I find any information about that process? I would like to learn as much about it that I'm able to write such an entry myself rather than with a tool.
Thanks for pointing me in the right direction.

I have about 15 installations of Office 2016 to do and our internet connection is not good.  How can I download those installation files to distribute them over a network share?

I see Microsoft's "Click to run" solution at https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/download/details.aspx?id=49117&WT 

But I don't want anything complicated.  I just want to be able to double-click the installation .exe file and proceed to set up Office 2016 as if I were downloading it directly from Microsoft.

Thank you very much.

I have an exchange 2013 server CU3. Can't update as there is an orphaned second server listed, Exchange 2003 Build 6944).  No one knows when or who installed it. Didn't know it was there.  I have attempted to uninstall, not in add/remove programs.  Tried using an exchange 2003 install disk, doesn't see the installation.  Tried to find it in AD, doesn't exist. Searched registry. Doesn't exist.  Found one single entry in ADSIedit with the server name and one protocol key. Nothing else.  Is it safe to delete this server or are there other places I should look before proceeding?

Hi,

I am configuring autodiscover for Exchange 2010 and when using the testconnectivity.microsoft website, it says it has been configured successfully but with warnings.  When I dig down further, it shows the message below:

The microsoft connectivity analyzer is attempting to obtain the remote SSL certificate.  
Additional Details:
The Microsoft Connectivity Analyzer is attempting to obtain the SSL certificate from the remote server domain.com on port 443.  The Microsoft Connectivity Analyzer wasn't able to obtain the remote SSL Certificate.
Additional Details:
The certificate couldn't be validated because SSL negotiation wasn't successful.  This could have occurred as a result of a network error or because of a problem with the certificate installation.

Anyone any thoughts.

The Logitech headset H600 was today installed on a Windows 10 computer which is fully up to date. I use it with Skype for recording interviews. I test it with the Echo / Sound test service.

The H600 provides audio immediately after installation. But on a startup following the closing down of Windows in the normal way, audio is unavailable.

The only workaround I have been able to devise is to reinstall the H600 after each restart.

Help, please, Experts

I'm looking for suggestions for a utility to build an installation of a compiled legacy program written in VB6.

There are 5 executables. The main one is just a "dashboard" from which the other 4 can be launched.

Installation includes a number of auxiliary .txt files. But my main issue is one OCX: MSFLXGRD.OCX

I have to be sure that this OCX installs on Win10. Registration? I am not sufficiently familiar with how Win10 differs from older OSs.

Any suggested utilities that can build this installer?

I currently have Exchange 2010 (Windows Server 2008 R2 Standard) installed and I am in the process of installing Exchange 2016 (Microsoft Exchange Server 2016 Cumulative Update 6) on another box (Windows Server 2012 R2) for migration but the installation fails on step 11 of 15 (Mailbox role: Mailbox service).

I also get the below as part of the error message:
          # No RetentionPolicy assigned to E-Discovery arbitration mailbox currently, we need to set it here.
          # This can be remove after BUG(O15#2555914) is fixed.

I have a single Domain Controller (Windows Server 2012 R2) and the Forest Functional Level set to Windows Server 2012 R2.

I am at a road block. Any suggestion to help me move forward?




Thanks,

Hi Experts,

I rebuilt a new 2016 Core Virtual Server.  
I am trying to install WSUS, the install is successful up until after the restart, then the post installation tasks keep failing.
I tried the fix with the 2012 server and uninstalled it and deleted the Windows/WID folder and it didn't make any difference, same behavior.
Here are the errors from the logs:

Hi All,
I have a client with an older Macbook Pro.  She wants to give the computer to another person.  I have removed the OS in the  macOS Recovery console.  When I got to Reinstall Yosemite, it prompts to enter an Apple ID/PW.  I have tried entering the current owner's Apple ID/PW, but will not let me download the OS.

I have tried:
-Also in the Recovery Console, I have gone to help, logged into iCloud using my client's credentials, then reverting back to the above steps, but still no luck.

Question:
How can I reinstall Yosemite onto the Mac?

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

A customer brought in an HP Laptop. The issue as described by the customer: The laptop randomly shut down one day, when she turned it on said that the OS was missing files required to boot. The customer proceeded to do a recovery. When the recovery was finished the computer turned on and had an error related to heat/ CPU fan (I saw this error when I first turned it on at my shop). The laptop would continue to not load into windows.

My process:
I first opened up the computer and cleaned all of the dust and hair compact that was in and around the fan and heat sink prohibiting the computer from properly cooling (there was a significant amount it). I removed the heat sink itself, cleaned both it and the processor, re-applied fresh heat sink paste, re-assembled the computer. I did a fresh installation of Windows 10 - installation completed successfully, booted into Windows as would be expected. Proceed to do windows updates, laptop randomly restarted and proceed to continue looping through the automatic repair. The issue seems a lot like hard drive failure to me so I removed the hard drive and tested it - it tested good. However, I was still suspicious and thought maybe hard drive so I installed a test hard drive, re-installed windows 10 - as before, the installation completed successfully. However, almost immediately got stuck in the loop again.

I am not getting any error messages. I am not sure if there could be some sort of intermittent power failure on the board - or…

hi,

Now I am getting ready to install MariaDB (fork of MySQL ) Galera Cluster, what I want to install is the latest edition from Redhat linux repository.

from: https://mariadb.com/kb/en/mariadb/what-is-mariadb-galera-cluster/

the most stable one should be MariaDB 10.2.7 , is that right?

I'd like to list down the steps I will take and please suggest if there are anything missing for version 10.2.7 :

from :https://mariadb.com/kb/en/mariadb/yum/#installing-mariadb-galera-cluster-with-yum , it said:

"Galera Cluster is included in the default MariaDB packages from 10.1, so the instructions in this section are only required for MariaDB 10.0 and MariaDB 5.5."

so I just need to do:

1) sudo yum install MariaDB-server MariaDB-client

this one should not need :
sudo yum install MariaDB-Galera-server MariaDB-client galera

as this is for MariaDB 10.0.x or below, right?

2) when do I need this mariaDB.repo ? when the first time I install MariaDB package ? before  step 1 )  above ?

"# MariaDB 10.2 RedHat repository list - created 2017-08-07 04:53 UTC
# http://downloads.mariadb.org/mariadb/repositories/

name = MariaDB
baseurl = http://yum.mariadb.org/10.2/rhel7-ppc64le
gpgkey=https://yum.mariadb.org/RPM-GPG-KEY-MariaDB
gpgcheck=1"

3)
after installation done by step 1) , do this to start the MariaDB cluster DB:

sudo systemctl start mariadb

4) after that, do I need to Importing the MariaDB Signing Key ?
