I'm looking for a quick and easy way of exporting and importing Windows environment variables.

I have a user who creates a lot of custom Windows environment variables that do things such as launch custom Windows Explorer paths, open different programs, and do other things.

These variables are defined with letters such as u that has a value of C:\Users so that when the user types in %u% within a Windows Explorer browser window or within the run dialog box Windows Explorer will open in the C:\Users folder.

The user also has several programs that will launch if other variables such as %z% or %r% are typed in.

We would like to be able to export these custom Windows Explorer environment variables so that they can be exported into another Windows operating system.

How can this be done?

I had this question after viewing how to replace a domain controller and keep the computer name and IP the same.

From that question's accepted solution:

Here is a step by step.
http://blog.zwiegnet.com/windows-server/migrate-server-2003-to-2008r2-active-directory-and-fsmo-roles/

I would create the DC as another name then once you have removed the old DC from the Forest or demoted to a member server you can then do the rename and re-ip.


Since you indicate this is a software requirement, you should indicate there will be a minimal amount on downtime with the rehome and rename but that should be pretty straightforward since it is a single DC environment.

Rename DC

Is there a step by step guide since that initial link is not working now?

Installing SQL 2017 we were asked to "Accept" on "Microsoft R Open".  We looked it up some sort of open source, but What is it to us Microsoft product users?, also  Why click "Accept" it in this SQL install? and How can we take advantage of this "Microsoft R Open"?

I have a unique situation and nobody in our team have seen it before. Please feel free to ask if you need clarification.
I have a windows2003 AD and WinXP as clients-
I want to create a separate OU for Win7 clients and be able to push GP for Win7 instead of the default domain policy meant for XP.  The current GP is for XP and that will not support Win7 clients.
Questions- How do I create a separate GP for Win7 machines and apply but still keep XP group policy?
My security officer must generate a report (SCAP) and it must have Win7 GP applied in order to determine the baseline.

Hi, I built a server in a KMS license environment and then moved it to a DMZ, so it needs to be activated by phone.

I've got a MAK code, which has been used all over the estate, and i've used:

slmgr -upk (to remove the kms links)
slmgr -ipk <mak> (to add the new key)

and it says it's loaded successfully but when I run slui /4 it says Access Denied, contact your administrator. (Hi!) and when i run slui it asks me for a key.  If I use the same key, as before it says This key didn't work, please check it and try again or try a different key.

I get this in event viewer (googling now) - License Activation (slui.exe) failed with the following error code:
hr=0xC004F074


Any tips?

I support Windows 10 users who intermittently have issues with the Windows 10 clipboard.

Sometimes items that are placed within the Windows 10 clipboard are not able to be pasted.

So far this issue has only been able to be fixed by rebooting the operating system.

What else can be done to fix this issue without having to reboot the Windows 10 operating system?

We have defined a VPN boundary group for our remote employees in single site, single server SCCM current branch (1706) setup. Our company's setup is very simple - one server is the site server, DP, and MP. We're all in one building. However we need to define the "VPN" boundary group to be a "slow" link for those that connect remotely.

I cannot find a way to do this in SCCM 1706. Does anyone know how to do this?

This device is identified as a Belkin to Serial port driver.

The machine type for this Lenovo X61 laptop is 7673.

The Driver IDs that appear within Device Manager for this device are listed here:

USB\VID_050D&PID_0109&REV_0102

USB\VID_050D&PID_0109

I prefer (if possible) to be able to download the driver without having to first register or pay for a membership on a website.

Please provide me with the exact URL addresses of where I can download this driver from.

Here is a screenshot of the Device IDs listed within Device Manager:

Believe this is a long shot but doesn't hurt to ask, is there a way to activate WINXP? I called the MS number and the automated line said the product was not valid. I know the product is valid I expect this is because it's no longer supported.

Have an old app that only runs on WINXP.

Thank you

I need to move a couple of shared folder based applications from an Advanced Server 2000 machine. I thought the 20 concurrent connections on a Windows 10 box would be enough for that purpose, but it is not.

The most affordable solution is to apply 2012 Essentials to the box in question to get actual CALs, and not client connections. It comes with 25 CALs, and is licensed for 50 device connections, so that should work for me. Most bang for the buck.

Unfortunately, we still have a 2000 Server as the domain controller. With luck, that changes by the end of the year with DC replacement, but, not sure that will happen, if the dollars will be available. Life in manufacturing.

My question is, just as the two 2000 Advanced Servers, can a 2012 Essentials be a client of the 2000 domain, or should I just leave it as a peer to peer machine and map the shares I need via UNC paths?

The Windows 10 machines have been "playing nice" as clients of the 2000 domain controller, but I'm not sure modern security will allow that same thing, server platform, to server platform. Opinions?

I was thinking I can also promote the 2012 Essentials server to the domain controller to handle log ins to the domain, and log in scripts, and let the 2000 domain controller handle the shared files it does now, but I'm a little concerned that would cause a loss of the "trust relationship," and all clients would need to rejoin the "new" domain. I'm going to have to do that anyway come DC replacement, …

It's time to update sql server.  But I can't access the databases on this instance of sql server 6.5.  See image for error.  Notice there is a green light, but when I try to expand, I get the error.  Interestingly, the legacy program that is associated with the databases on this instance runs just fine.  Any ideas how I can get to the data via enterprise manager?

I ran the DISM.exe /Online /Cleanup-Image /Scanhealth command line command on a Windows 10 Pro computer.

Then I ran the DISM.exe /Online /Cleanup-Image /Restorehealth command line command on the same computer.

This command stalled at 99.3% for over ten minutes and then displayed the message

"The source files could not be found.

Use the "Source" option to specify the location of the files that are required to restore the feature. For more information on specifying a source location, see http://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/?LinkId=243077.
 
The DISM log file can be found at C:\WINDOWS\Logs\DISM\dism.log" (see the screenshot).

What can be done to fix this issue so this DISM command will complete correctly?

We are using an ERP solution hosted on remote Windows 2008 servers.  The connection is accomplished via RDP.  We have 14 users with Microsoft Surface Pro 4's running Windows 10 that have updated to Creators Version 1703.  Microsoft has made changes to RDP (specifically the two files mentioned in the attached document).  We performed this work around on several machines and then last week two of the Surfaces applied new updates and this "broke" again.  Near as I can tell Microsoft removed NTLM from this version of RDP which is still required to login to our hosted servers.  Has anyone else run into this?  If so, have you found a permanent solution?  Very frustrating.

I have removed virus infected hard drives from Windows 10 laptops and have connected them as secondary hard drives to another Windows 10 desktop.

 The malware, spyware, adware, and viruses have been removed from these previously infected Win 10 hard drives. Now when these hard drives are scanned there are no threats detected.

Please provide me with the instructions for using AutoRuns.exe to analyze the startup items for these offline Windows 10 hard drives.

 What is the correct syntax for running the SFC command to repair the Windows 10 operating system on these slaved Windows 10 hard drives? I would like to make sure that any additional OS damage or corruption is also repaired.

 When I run the SFC command within a Windows 10 OS I use the following syntax:

 SFC /scannow

 Please provide me with the correct syntax for running the SFC command within Windows 10 for Windows 10 hard drives that are connected as secondary drives.
