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 purchased a 1 TB Sata Hard Drive to install in my Windows 7 Professional computer.  I also purchased a Apricorn Sata to USB Data Transfer Cable.
I want to clone the hard drive in my computer.  However, when I connect the new hard drive to the computer using the Apricorn - Data Transfer Cable, I can't initalize or format the new hard drive in Windows Disk Management.  Any ideas on how I can fix this issue? Or do I need I different Sata to USB cable in order to do this?  
Thanks for any info.

I just created a new certificate for my tech for a website, and he just email me that my windows 2008 CA Root certificate will expire in two weeks. Even if the certificate for the website is valid for 2021for the website. For sure now the certificate that i have created for him will expire in two weeks because of the ROOT certificate expiring.

I have two  Windows CA Root certificate  already in use the same year. I got:

Certificate #0 started in 11-25-2014 to 11-25-2019 expires in two weeks

and Certificate #1.0 started in 11-25-2014 to 11-25-2024

It looks that certificate i did for my tech is referencing the certificate #0

How can I create a certificate that will be issue with Certificate#1 for my tech.

I try to renew the Root certificate by going to the certificate of my Windows server CA by doing:

1.  mmc
2. install the snap in certificate
3. Go to personal --> certificates and right click on the Certificate that relates to  certificate #0
4. All task -> advance orations -> renew the certificate with the same key

When I did that i got an error

We currently have exchange 2010 in our environment. We would like to move to o365. We will be using bittitan to migrate the mailbox to o365. In order to management mailboxes to o365 do we have to install an exchange 2016 mailbox server role or just install exchange 2016 management tools to manage mailboxes on o365? We would then decommission exchange 2010

I am in a process to migrate exchange 2010 to exchange online. To manage exchange online do I need to install mailbox server role or just install the management tools?

Hi,

I am trying to run a Powershell to install a cert on a remote machine.

I am using the Invoke-Command for the remote and the ScriptBlock with the Start-Process.

I know there is a credential parameter option and I have tried it with it and without. Same results. Also, the intent is to run it under the same user which it the default I believe with the absence of the -Credential.

The command I am executing is:

Invoke-Command -ComputerName "$an" -ScriptBlock  { Start-Process -Verb RunAs certutil.exe -f –p "$using:PFXPassword" –importpfx "$using:PFXFile"; write-host "Executed certutil" }

Open in new window


The response is:
Parameter cannot be processed because the parameter name 'p' is ambiguous. Possible matches include: -PassThru -PipelineVariable -FilePath.

So there is a -p on the CertUtil as well there are different -P's with the Start-Process hence the ambiguous.

How do I/can I work this to run the command?

What am I missing?

Any information would be greatly appreciated.

My wife installed Holdem Manager 3 on her Windows 10 Home computer for my son.
https://www.holdemmanager.com/hm3/

We gave my son a limited account (Windows 10). When he runs the application, it asks for the admin's password which my wife entered. I don't know whether there is a timeout, but when he closes HM3 down, and brings it up again, it does not ask for a password if he didn't log out of Windows.

Since we are not giving him the admin password, we would him to be able to start the application without having us to enter the admin password.

I tried two things:
1) ~10 years ago, I succeeded in setting users rights to full control. So I did that for HM3.exe as well as the other applications in that folder. There were about 170 dll's, so I did not try to change them.

2) I tried the steps in this link, but the application did not start.
https://www.maketecheasier.com/standard-users-run-program-admin-rights/
Any idea why this link might fail for HM3?


I found other links which I have not read yet:

Will any of these links work for HM3?

Thanks!

I have a Windows 7 machine, running in parallels.  I have to upgrade to Win 10.

I want to be able to have both versions of Windows running until I make sure that the Windows 10 install has all of the necessary data and programs migrated from Windows 7 to Windows 10.

Questions are:
Can I have both versions of Windows installed in parallels at the same time
How do I do that
How do I boot to each version of Windows

Please be as specific as possible

Hi,

Server#1(Dell R510): it is at 135 subnet
Server#2 (Dell R 510): it is at 135 subnet
The SAN (Dell MD 3200): it is at 135 subnet

Server#1, server#2 and MD 3200 are located  in the data center (Colo).

From Office (It is at different location with Colo), I can do the followings:
I can RDP to Server#1 (which from it, I can see “all network drives”),
I can install the Management software for the SAN (=Management Software Dell Modular Disk Storage Manager “MDSM”) at Server#1 remotely, then when I launch the MDSM, I can see the SAN (MD3200)

But from Server#2, I cannot see or connect to "any network drives"

Question: Why i can not see any network drives from Server#2?

I am having a ton of issues installing printers on a Fresh 2019 Server.


1. The "devices and printer" window will not refresh properly after I make a change, this can be as simple as a name change. When making a name change the old name still appears, after I make this name change sometimes the icon representing that printer no longer allows me into the property screen. Sometimes it does. The only way to get the name change to up date that I have found is to re boot the server.

2. Seems to be related to the same issue with the "devices and printer" window will not refresh properly. This also happens when I install a new printer. I can step through the entire process and print a test page which works perfectly. But the printer will not appear in the devices and printers window unless I reboot the server.

This is a windows 2019 sever, it has all the current patches and updates installed. It is setup as a terminal server.

I have two of these servers they are both acting the same way.

I've installed and fixed the installation of a lot of printers.
Today, I ran into a strange situtation:
The printer is HP Laserjet Pro M402-M403n-dne connected via USB using USB-001 printer port.

We've tried to remove all instances of M402 drivers from the computer using the normal cleanup process and haven't had 100% luck with that.
We disconnected the computer from the network in case there were more of them network-connected.
We discconnected the USB and turned off the printer.
We were able to remove all M402 drivers except one that was grayed out.  I don't recall ever seeing a driver on the list being grayed out....

Then we reconnected the HP Laserjet Pro M402dne via USB and immediately got TWO printers named:
HP Laserjet M402-403 PCL 6
and
HP Laserjet M402-403n-dne PCL6

The HP Laserjet M402-403 PCL 6 came up after installation to print on one side.
The HP Laserjet M402-403n-dne PCL6 came up to print on 2 sides.
One of our app's selected the HP Laserjet M402-403n-dne PCL6 and was printing on 2 sides - which wasn't wanted.
So, we changed that setting and are hoping the user will get good results tomorrow.

In the meantime, it's a bit disturbing to have two installs when one is trying to get ONE install set up as needed.

Any insights?

Does anyone have any real experience with Windows 10 Pro sysprep?

I just imaged an entire machine.   When I completed the image I ran the sysprep tool and enabled audit mode.   After boot the machine BSOD'ed.   Am I supposed to run sysprep first, put it in audit mode, reboot and THEN install all the applications and drivers?  Also am I not allowed to reboot the machine?  I already ruined 1 unit I dont want to ruin another one.  

Can I undo what I did by putting the machine back to out of box mode clicking shutdown to reset what I did get back to windows and then proceed from there?  Or can you only sysprep the unit once?

I got in trouble by following a YouTube video which I thought would work now I feel pooched.   I got to get this image created by the end of day.

I do not know how audit mode works vs out of box mode.   Basically I want to put the machine so I can setup all the drivers and apps, and then make a macrium golden image of the machine before I shut it down.

how to install google chrome browser via SCCM

I downloaded the standalone offline installer (about 57MB),

One issue, if you install the exe while the browser is open, it needs to close to apply the update or click relaunch from the browser. But via a script, how can we do it.

The deployment script.bat working fine at a local computer, but when I deploy it via SCCM its installs the chrome but not closing the browser and displays some message as chrome installed without administrative.

Anyone have abetter idea to install/update chrome, please share

Below script:

start "Installing Chrome Silently" /wait "ChromeStandaloneSetup.exe" /silent /install
echo x=msgbox("Google Chrome browser has been updated successfully. For security reasons, it will relaunch automatically after three minutes.",0,"Security Team") > %tmp%\tmp.vbs
cscript //nologo %tmp%\tmp.vbs
del %tmp%\tmp.vbs
@echo off 
timeout /t 180 /nobreak
taskkill /F /IM chrome.exe /T
"C:\Program Files (x86)\Google\Chrome\Application\chrome.exe" --restore-last-session

Hey Experts, wondering if i could get general information on hardening of the following systems:  Linux Server/Desktop and Windows Server/Desktop

What steps would you take to harden both those systems types?  

For example on a Windows Server you might do the following:  (please expand on this)
1.) Limit the ports used
2.) Limit non-essential services
3.) Ensure AV .dat files are up-to-date
4.) If using NAC, can the system be segemented on it's on VLAN to contain (or stop the bleeding)
5.) Disable local Admin access
6.) Configure Dynamic Access Control that allows a user(s) upon proper vetting a certain time-frame where they have elevated permissions
7.) Install HIDS
8.) " "
9.) " "
10.) " "

Thank you kindly in advance!

I have installed Debian 10 on VMware and it boots fine. Then I tried to install VMware tools. But when I want to extract the VMware Tools archive in my download folder, a popup windows tell me that I don't have enough space. This is strange as I reserved 60GB for the hard drive before the installation. See the pictures and thanks for your helpissue1.PNGissue2.PNGissue3.PNGissue4.PNG

New installation of MSSQL 2017 on a new Windows Server OS 2016 installation. During the installation Integration services was selected to install and it successfully installed. The Integration services are running. There are two integration services with this version of MSSQL.  I can connect to Integration Services using SSMS 17.9.
I expected to see the Integration Services database SSISDB in the list of databases when I connect to the Database Engine using SSMS 17.9. But it is not listed. Articles state that it should be listed. What am I missing? How do I see the database SSISDB in SSMS?

I'd like to install OSX Mojave onto a VM instance (VirtualBox) but am having a heck of a time getting it to work.  I've tried three different .rar files that have the Mojave image on them and have set up my settings correctly on that VM instance i.e. memory, storage, display, etc.  Does anyone have an easy and sure fire method of getting the OSX Mojave image onto VirtualBox?

How can I fix the security certificate trust for an server that is only accessed internally?

I have tried to install the cert but still keep getting the same error.   It is a Host server that I access all the time.     I can continue but it still shows the certificate error.  I can successfully launch the vsphere web client.   Just trying to eliminate the error.  I also get an error when I try to import a file into the Datastore because of the certificate error.    Is there a way to fix this problem?

Running Notes 9. Suddenly notes is crashing on start up. Shows the 'splash' window and then "An error has occurred in an IBM Notes Applciation", etc.
Tried killing processes, restarting PC and same thing happens each time.
So I thought I'd run a repair from installation files. It starts going through the motions, asks if I want to make Notes my default email, etc, I click continue and then an error message pops up: "Could not create the Java virtual machine" and then the installer exits.
I've searched this error and there are articles but do not relate to Lotus Notes per se.
Any ideas what I can do to try get Notes running again?
OS is WIn 10 up to date. Thanks

Hi Experts,

I am trying to install the Windows 10 version 1903 update.

25% of the way I get a message:

What needs your attention:

Avast Antivirus
Uninstall this app because it isn't compatible with Windows 10

But Avast Antivirus is not installed.

Also I downloaded it (from Microsoft Store), installed it, then uninstalled it.

I still get the message:
Avast Antivirus
Uninstall this app because it isn't compatible with Windows 10

I cannot breakthrough this issue.

Regards,
Leigh
