Software is any set of instructions that directs a computer to perform specific tasks or operations. Computer software consists of programs, libraries and related non-executable data (such as documentation). Computer software is non-tangible, contrasted with computer hardware, which is the physical component of computers. Software written in a machine language is known as "machine code". However, in practice, software is usually written in high-level programming languages than machine language. High-level languages are translated into machine language using a compiler or interpreter or a combination of the two.

I'm trying to install Crashplan. It's a backup software that installs as a service.
I get the error shown in the picture. That it can't create the service because of insufficient privileges.

Prior to this, I had deleted all references to Crashplan in the registry along with all folders from a prior installation.

I have tried to give myself rights using this solution: https://community.pharos.com/thread/2372

It still does not work and I was hoping someone would have an idea on how to troubleshoot this.

Thank you

For patching I used Tanium before on cross platforms environment.  Multiple OSs. MS, unix, mac.  Unfortunately Tanium only serves for a very large customers.  What would be an alternatives to Tanium?  
I heard Kace is great and easy to deploy?  

Thanks in advance!

Hi Experts,

i have tried looking on-line but have so far been un-successful. I need to get a guide which can be given to users to help them setup monitors. not with regards to the physical setup but more so the software side. I don't fancy writing the document myself as i would have to include all the following scenarios:


Scenario 1: you have 1 additional monitor that you would like to connect to the laptop to duplicate or extend the display.
Windows 7
Windows 10

Scenario 2: You have 2 additional monitors that you would like to connect to the laptop
Windows 7
Windows 10

Scenario 3: You have 3 additional monitors that you would like to connect to the laptop
Windows 7
Windows 10

is there any content online which would answer these questions in a generic way as i know that display settings can be a pain but the common issues here are users having issues getting the monitors the correct way round or resolution / size of icons are incorrect.

worst case scenario i will have to bring together several articles online with screen shots etc but was hoping there may already be a john and janets handbook as such on this.

thanks in advance,

Hi,
I have written a regular expression to capture an email address from a specific zone on a page using a software application.
The application will then send a copy of the document to that email address.
I have come across two problems. First is that email addresses can contain numeric values as well as text. Problem solved by adding 0-9 in the regex.
Second issue is that some of the documents have more than one email address separated by / (forward slash).
Is there an easy way to find the / and stop returning any further email addresses?
The first address will always be the one I need.
Thanks in advance,
Chris.

Some software especially filter applications the developers somehow manage to hide it from showing up in the list of program at the uninstall list, is there a way to delete them without need to contact the vendor?

I have researched a software and also have surfed on the internet and came to know that no such software exists, So there can be a possibility that this can be patented, and as this is unique and I know unique things can be patented. But as this is a software so can this be patented. Should I refer an attorney for this. I told this to one of my friends, she stays in Sydney she suggested me to consult cotters registered designs which are in Sydney. She said they have senior attorneys so they can help. Should I go with her suggestions or someone can suggest me a better company to go with.

Is there a platform out that that is web based, that allows a company to create an internal knowledge Base and Procedures Training Platform? Training could be created for procedures and then a quiz could be taken for each logged in user and tracked and evaluated to see if they need to take the training again to pass the quiz. The platform would also be easy searchable for procedure documents or knowledge base materials.

Hello Everyone,

We have a client which runs Perceptive Workgroup Search (made by Perceptive Software- formally ISYS Search software) to do searches across their network, A single Search query lets them simultaneously search across a wide range of formats, including word, excel, PDFs, XML data, SQL databases, web pages and emails. They have multiple indexes each one covering different parts of the system, however the software is not reliable anymore and the schedule maintenance tasks keep breaking causing the searches to fail, freeze or to give out outdated results.

In general, We are not happy with the reliability of the software and the support from the vendor is terrible. Can anyone recommend any similar software that can replace this program? Thanks in advanced.

Regards,

I am researching a simple solution for a workflow application I need to develop.  Simply put, I have 10 locations which each request budget approval from a central location.  I'm looking for existing applications I can modify to meet our needs instead of developing from scratch.  If you have suggestions I'd very much appreciate your input.

I have the occasional issue where I am trying to reinstall a printer for a client via remote and it calls for unplugging the printer from the USB port.  If the client is not there, I have no way to unplug the printer.  Does anyone know of a app or routine that I can simulate/turn off the USB port to trick the software into thinking the printer is not plugged in and then turn the port back on when the software tells you to plug the printer into the USB Port.  Some HP software will not even uninstall the software until you unplug the printer from the USB port.  The majority of the computers are either Windows 7 or Windows 10.

Any ideas would be helpful!

What are the best commercial programs for recording all keystrokes on a Windows 10 64-bit computer?

I will be installing this on my own computers since I'm constantly typing things that need to be logged.

I won't be using this for any sneaky or dishonest purposes.

I need this program to be able to run in the background without displaying any prompts or messages and for it to be able to run without being detected by Symantec Antivirus or Malware Bytes. I need to be able to configure exemptions so Symantec Antivirus and Malware bytes will allow it to run.

I recently purchased 2 of Seagate's newer releases - Seagate Expandable 8tb external drives to back up my media. I was using Amazon Drive, backing up to the cloud but their prices increased by a factor of almost 10 so I started looking for alternatives.

My Backup software (iDrive) only looks at one drive at a time which my media won't fit on so I'm looking for a "Volume" solution where you can group multiple backup drives but have it "appear" to Windows 10 as only one drive.

That brought me to the subject of "Spanning" drives. A term I was completely unfamiliar with, but from it's description, sounded exactly like what I was looking for so I thought I'd give it a try.

Using Disk Manager:
Step 1 in the process is to delete the existing volume.
Step 2 in the process is to right-click on the volume and select "Spanning".
Step 3 in the process is to select the drive(s) you want to include.
Step 4 you are presented with a screen informing you are about to convert your discs to "Dynamic". It's not optional. You either convert or cancel the process, so I selected to continue.

I then received a message the process failed. "Devices don't support this action" or something along those lines.

From that point on, my drives became inoperable. Device Manager could see them but Disc Manager could not. Nothing I tried would bring them back into Disc Manager. Even using the Cmd line approach, they were not identified.

I have 2 new drives coming later in the week but for …

Hello,
we have a software which is not working without administrative privilege.
My goal is to have for this software an exception to run by the user also with admin rights. So I have to give admin privilege for this software only to all active directory users.
- first I was thinking to create run as a script
but maybe would more proper to add an exception into Group Policy?
Can someone advise what would be a proper way, the best way for a solution?

Thanks in advance...

I need to run an older software program (Timeslips 2010) on a new Windows 10 (creators) workstation.  I know that the software will run as I have some systems that were upgraded from Windows 7 to 10 that run the software just fine.  However, the Timeslips installer detects the newer OS and halts.  How can I install on this version of Windows?  I've tried running the setup.exe in compatibility mode but get the same error.  Any ideas?

I am trying to export an Azure DB to a bacpac file and save it locally.
When I try to do this I get an error, and on top of that it only allows me to export the tables.

This is what I do:
https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/sql/relational-databases/data-tier-applications/export-a-data-tier-application

Is there any software out there that can make this process more user friendly?
How can I export the entire DB ?  Stored procedures, views, etc.

Hi Experts,

I'm getting a ton of spoolsv.exe failures on my Remote Desktop server 2012 r2.

History: In the beginning, we were using a print server and deploying printers to every user (less that 25 users). That configuration had errors, so I stopped the server and followed printer installations according to the recommendation from a Line of Business install configuration doc (install a local printer and also use no spaces in printer names). This seemed to resolve all printer issues. Now, just within the past 2 weeks, spoolsv.exe is failing constantly. Recently installed printer (I believe before the errors started) is an HP OfficeJet 8710 full software was loaded by a junior admin vs just the driver for the network printing.

How can I truly find the cause? Kernelbase.dll? tells me nothing (but I'm not an expert :-)

Hello All, hope somebody can help.

We have an Exchange 2010 server at a client site with about 3 DBs. Handles 373 mailboxes in total, Server info;
Software with issue: Exchange 2010 v14 (14.3.123.4)
OS: Microsoft Server 2008 R2 Enterprise (not virtualized)
Original Install Date: Spring of 2010
Server Hardware: Dell PowerEdge R710 (2x Xeon E5620 Processors and 24GB RAM)

Recently (past month or so) we have been getting a lot of users complaining that they cannot search in outlook, I know these are common occurrences with outlook and a simple "re-indexing" fixes it. But recently I've gotten about 30+ complaints (and we all know there are others who just don't say anything). Do any of you have any idea what could be causing this? Every day we get 1-2 NEW complaints.
