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'm trying a new installation of include-media (on Mac) and I'm getting the following error:
Error: Undefined mixin 'media'.
        on line 749 of /Volumes/current/Current/Projects/h5bp-bootstrap4-master/_scss/_project.scss, in `media'
        from line 749 of /Volumes/current/Current/Projects/h5bp-bootstrap4-master/_scss/_project.scss
        from line 60 of /Volumes/current/Current/Projects/h5bp-bootstrap4-master/_scss/__main.scss
  Use --trace for backtrace.

_include-media.scss is installed in _scss directory and seems good.

bs4 breakpoint Sass map has been edited to include: $breakpoints: $grid-breakpoints;

[
code]
$grid-breakpoints: (
  xs: 0,
  sm: 576px,
  md: 768px,
  lg: 992px,
  xl: 1200px
)
!default;
@include _assert-ascending($grid-breakpoints, "$grid-breakpoints");
@include _assert-starts-at-zero($grid-breakpoints);

$breakpoints: $grid-breakpoints;      //include-media expects $breakpoints
[/code]

Usage is:
/* Extra Small Devices, Phones */
@include media(">xs") {                                   //This is Line 749 which returns the error

I am running a script via GPO to install Shockwave 12.2.9.199
All flag files indicate that the script Started, Installed, Checked and cleaned the flag files and another to confirm installation. But when I check there are only 3 Registry entries in the Uninstall folder, and nothing in control panel.

All my test pc's are in the correct ou in AD and in the scope of the GPO etc.

I have deleted all flag files and deleted all entries in the registry with that uninstall id and ran it again with the same results.

I have also rant the msi and mst manually as well as the reg query for the key and it all works manually.

I have tried it on a few PC's, it worked the other day so not sure if it's been touched and a space somewhere but I believe I have been over everything to make sure the script syntax is ok.

Here is the script:

@echo off

echo %date% %time% Start - Adobe Shockwave 12.2.9.199 Script Started > "C:\Windows\System32\Flags\Adobe_SW_1229199_Prog.txt"

if exist "C:\Windows\System32\Flags\Adobe_SW_1229199_Installed.txt" (
      goto:eof
)

:install
echo %date% %time% Install - Checking Registry for Previous Installation. >> "C:\Windows\System32\Flags\Adobe_SW_1229199_Prog.txt"
reg query "HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Uninstall\{39EA6AA6-F891-4D70-867D-839DA49948D2}"
      if %errorlevel% EQU 0 (

I am using a Windows 7 computer...Intel i7 processor and everything is working well except windows media player will not start.
Also, when I try to install itunes as a supplementary music/media player I get the following error message:
"errors occurred during installation before iTunes could be configured.  to complete the installation run the installer again".
Any ideas what may have caused this problem and what should I be doing to fix the problem?  I do not want to reinstall Windows as it is far too much work and it is very time consuming.
thanks,

We have installed two Exchange Servers and these are seeing each other successfully using the Get-ExchangeServer command in Powershell.

We are attempting to installed an Edge Server and were having issues with that. When we initially installed the Edge Server it would error out before installation with the following error:

Error:
The following error was generated when "$error.Clear();
     new-ExchangeServer
" was run: "Value cannot be null.
Parameter name: Cannot get child of ADObjectId:    this is a GUID based
ADObjectId.".

After restarting the installation it would not complete successfully.
This happened several times on several PCs.

We found a technical note from Microsoft saying to take the Edge Server out of domain and reinstall the Edge Server. Then rejoin the network. We did this and the Edge Server role installation completes successfully.
We then rejoin the domain network. However, when we do "Get-ExchangeServer" command in Powershell on the Exchange Server the new Edge Server does not show up. Also when we do "Get-ExchangeServer"
command in Powershell in the Edge Server only the Edge Server shows up in the list.

I'm hoping someone can give me insight to make this a little easier. Recently I migrated an Exchange 2010 installation to 2016 by following steps listed in this article:

http://techgenix.com/migrating-small-organization-exchange-2010-exchange-2016-part1/ .

The migration is fine but I'm having the following secondary issue. The migration had me create separate volumes for the db and log files and mount them as junction points under : "C;\Exchange Databases". This works great for Exchange but my backup softeware is having issues with the junction points. These save volumes are mounted as drives E and F.  I'm backing up E and F but sinces its not backedup though the exchange path, exchange doesn't think its backed up so it wont truncate the logs. Is there a way can change the paths within exchange to to E anf F and get rid of the junction points? I know I can have exchange "move" the database files from c:\exchange Databases" to E:\... or create a new DB on E and move the boxes but it seems silly and time consuming considering its already on the drive. Also the exchange server is a VM which means the VHD file will grow to twice its size during the "move" and it will require compacting afterwards.

The basic question is: Can I somehow change the setting or registry entery that has the path of the db and log files without actually moving them?


Thanks

In InstallShiled setup project we have certain requirement that we need to validate any specific DataBase is exist or not on given SQL Server.

For that we are using below Install Script:

szADOConnObjID = "ADODB.Connection";
set pADOConnObj = CreateObject(szADOConnObjID); 

szConnString = "driver={SQL Server};"; // For TLS 1.2 Only use driver={SQL Server Native Client 11.0};
szConnString = szConnString + "server=SQLServerName;";
szConnString = szConnString + "Initial Catalog=master;";
szConnString = szConnString + "Integrated Security=True";
MessageBox("SQL Connection String: " + szConnString, INFORMATION);
	
try
	MessageBox("Trying with Windows Authentication first", INFORMATION);
	if (pADOConnObj.State==0)then 
		pADOConnObj.Open(szConnString);
		MessageBox("Connection Success", INFORMATION);
	endif;	
catch
	MessageBox("Windows Authentication Catch",INFORMATION);
	MessageBox(Err.Description , SEVERE);
endcatch;

Open in new window


With above Install Script it gives below error:
---------------------------
Sample SQL Connect - InstallShield Wizard
---------------------------
Multiple-step OLE DB operation generated errors. Check each OLE DB status value, if available. No work was done.
---------------------------

I have been using JDK 9 on Windows 10 x64 for a while but when I went to install the latest early release (b174), I first uninstalled the previous version (as usual) and then ran the new installer.

It fails with a message box saying "Another Java installation is in progress. You must complete that installation before you can run this installer".

It seems there are some artifacts around causing the problem but only for JDK 9 as I can uninstall & reinstall JDK 8 without any issues. Also, the same problem occurs if I try to run the installers for any prior JDK 9 releases as well (even though they worked before).

Searches have suggested various options like using a Microsoft MSI clean-up tool and registry hacks but nothing is helping.

Can anyone suggest a way to get JDK 9 installed (as now I cannot use any release of JDK 9 at all)?

I'm trying to install the evaluation version of MS System Center 2012 Virtual Machine Manager and get the following error at the end of the installation (see screen shot).

I did download install winrm 5.1 separately after looking at KB2742275 however that didn't help.  One requirement  MS has is being joined to a domain.  Is there any way to install this without a domain controller present?

Thanks

Hi All,

The following (see attached screenshot) are the updates that have been failing to install on my Dell laptop. – they appear to download ok but when it comes to the installation phase they stall at about 97% and then the whole process of uninstalling starts. It takes about 3 hours to go through this process. There seems to be two that are a problem KB4022715 and KB3126568.  Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Hello,

I have a PowerEdge 730 with H730 RAID controller. I created a RAID 5 array with 2 x hot spares. The total available disk space is about 4.4TB.

I created a single VD using all the available space.

I installed Windows Hyper-V Server 2016 core. During the install I did not manually create partitions since I intended on having only a single partition of all the available space to allocate to VMs so I just selected the raw disk space, which displayed as 4.4TB. This was the first mistake since now the entire partition is MBR. That being said, it only sees 2TB max.

Now I need to shrink the OS partition to about 500GB so I can create 2nd GPT partition so I can make use of the remaining space.

My second mistake is what complicates the situation a little more. I installed and deployed 3 production VMs assuming I had all the disk space to work with.

I have made a backup of the VMS using Veeam backup and replciation and I moved the production VMs to external storage for the time being so I can adjust the C:\ partition.

Now, my question is... Can I use diskpart to shrink the C:\ partition and then create a second partition with the remaining space on a single VD or do I have to shrink the VD in the RAID utility and create another VD.

Is what I'm trying to accomplish possible without destroying the OS?

I know there is always a risk, which is why I have backups, but I would like to do it with the least amount of down time. I've already had the VMs off…

Hello all,
I have a brand new Windows 2016 Standard server with WSUS installed on it.  This has been working great for the past two months.  The WSUS is using WID for it's database.
We had to install SQL server 2016 on the same server and since then the WSUS will not come up.
Every time I try to run it I get an error that it is not responding.
I have no idea what to do on this.
Please help.
Thanks,

I have two Yoga 910s, one with Windows 10 PRO and one with Windows 10 HOME.  For simplicity, I will refer to each as either HOME and PRO.   I bought Windows 10 Pro OEM so that I can upgrade HOME Yoga to the pro version.  It comes as a DVD.  The Yogas do not have a DVD drive.  So I tried the below.

So I downloaded Windows Creation Tool on the PRO Yoga, stuck a USB drive in told it to create a bootable USB to install Windows.   I did this because I read that if I used the HOME Yoga I would only be able to create a bootable Home USB version.

I stuck the new USB into the HOME Yoga, after it does its magic it defaults to re-installing HOME (and does not give me an option to install Pro).  How in the hell do I upgrade??
