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?

Free Tool: Port Scanner

Check which ports are open to the outside world. Helps make sure that your firewall rules are working as intended.

One of a set of tools we are providing to everyone as a way of saying thank you for being a part of the community.

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.

While launching Matercam 6 the error message "Invalid SIM found - error code 2" appears.

This error occurs even if Matercam 6 is launched with administrator rights and continues to appear even after Mastercam 6 has been repaired.

Mastercam 6 is loaded on a Windows 7 64-bit OS computer.

What can be done to fix this issue so that Matercam 6 will be able to successfully load?

Don't feel intimidated by what you don't know. Ask your question anonymously. It's easy! Learn more and upgrade.

A Windows 10 computer displays the following prompt when Windows loads "This computer is configured to require a password in order to start up. Please enter the Startup Password below" (see the screenshot).

The user has forgotten the password.

We have already tried several startup options including booting into safe mode, performing repairs, etc. but have been unable to get past this screen.

If we click on OK nothing happens and if we click on the Restart button then the computer restarts.

What can be done to bypass this Startup Password or what can be done to uninstall the program or whatever else is causing this pop up to appear?

What is the disadvantages to disable the option run all administrators in admin approval mode?
