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.

Client has audio files from town meetings that need to go on website.  Site is due to launch as early as next week.  Largest file size is 341MB.  Website is being built on Wordpress.

Can someone recommend a software or plugin we can use to reduce the file sizes.  They are not tech savvy so it would need to be something pretty easy to use since they do not want to have me do it for them on a weekly basis.  

They might be ok with a free trial and then pay afterwards if it serves their needs.

After yesterday's debacle with the Windows Creator 10 update causing me all sorts of grief, I was wondering if there's a "one stop shop" or software program that can dependably keep all of my drivers updated?  I thought Windows did that automatically, but apparently not.  I am running a Lenovo T440s laptop.

Thanks,

Phil

Hello Experts - I am looking for software that will allow us to setup custom internal training on AutoCAD and Revit.  We're just now starting to look at various way to do this so I'm not sure I'm going in the right direction yet.  I've seen software in the past where a trainer sets up a session for a specific task in the software but can't recall the name.  A video captures the steps and the user then has to go into the training software and replicate the same steps.  Mouse clicks are captured and the user must follow the same steps in order to proceed to the next lesson.  I would very much appreciate any recommendations on this or other training software that we might use for our intern architects.

Is there any good software (free or with minimal one time fee) can you introduce in composing some commercial standard music?

Also just curious what software are used by those recording companies?

Thank you.

Hello, I recently purchased a used Sony VAIO VPCSE1CGX laptop to replace my old one, which the motherboard recently fried in due to an unfortunate run in with a water bottle. However, this used one I purchased was physically in better shape than mine, and so I just transferred my hard drive, backed up my data, and did a clean install using the Sony recovery software off a USB flash drive, completely erasing all data on the current drive and restoring it. When I restored, I noticed the sound did not function thru internal speakers, the headphone jack, nor did it function even when using an HDMI cable to a known good TV and using a known good cable. I then attempted to reinstall a clean blank copy of Win 7 without the recovery stuff, just in case the model was slightly different on this one. However, even after painstakingly updating everything, no such luck. The audio drivers appear to update successfully and there are no hardware issues reported. When I do sound tests, the windows Mixer shows level being sent to the audio channels but nothing is heard. i physically took the computer apart to look for loose or missing cables and ribbons, but everything is there and seated well. I'm stumped. Usually if there is some sort of sound card physical issues on the built in board, I thought the HDMI would at least work. Am I wrong here? Thanks!

Greetings!
in my betting software project i have 2 tables and a query like this:

procedure TMain.Button16Click(Sender: TObject);
begin

ADOTABLE2.first;
while NOT ADOTABLE2.EOF do BEGIN
ADOQuery8.Close;
ADOQuery8.SQL.Clear;
ADOQuery8.SQL.Add ('SELECT SUM(W1) as total1, SUM(B1) as total2, COUNT(*) AS TOT');
ADOQuery8.SQL.Add ('FROM Table1');
ADOQuery8.SQL.Add ('WHERE League = '+QUOTEDSTR(adotable2.FieldByName('League').asstring));
ADOQuery8.Open;

It works very well, but i need to get only the first 30 records from table1 and not the whole records.
The table also has a date field called 'data', i made many tests but with no success...
It is a delphi app (embarcadero xe8) with ado components and ms access tables.

Thanks!

Free Tool: Subnet Calculator

The subnet calculator helps you design networks by taking an IP address and network mask and returning information such as network, broadcast address, and host range.

One of a set of tools we're offering as a way of saying thank you for being a part of the community.

In one remote office, IT needs are being a managed by a third party provider.
Currently, they are using an account which is a Domain Admin in order to do basic PC and printer software installs.

I would like to revoke the Domain Admin membership as this gives them much more access than is necessary.
Is there such a thing as a Windows account that can be configured on the domain to have admin rights for installing PCs, printers but without being Domain Admins?

My first thought was to create a local admin on each PC through GPO (I think this is possible) - is there a better way?

I have many files created with PowerPoint 4.0 that cannot be opened with PowerPoint 2013.  This appears to be a known issue.  When trying to open the file, receive PowerPoint message: "PowerPoint can't open this type of file (...\filname.ppt)."  
Details of the message: "The selected file does not appear to be a valid Microsoft PowerPoint file. It might be a file created by a different program.
Try double-clicking the file in Windows Explorer to see if another program will open it. If PowerPoint opens again when you double-click the file in Windows Explorer, it is possible that the file is not a PowerPoint file but that its extension was renamed to be that of a registered PowerPoint file type (such as .ppt, .pptx, .pps, .ppsx, .pptx, .pot, or .potx) but the file is not a PowerPoint file.
To determine which program can open the file, try any of the following:
Contact the original author (if known) to find out which program was used to create this file. Then rename the file with the correct extension so that it can be opened by that program.
Try opening the file in other programs.
If you, or someone you know, are very knowledgeable about software, examine the file header in a text editor to determine which program can read the file.
Another possibility is that the file was damaged during transfer from another computer. Try transferring the file again.
The file might have become corrupted. If you have a backup copy of the file, use it. It is not possible repair a

Hi Experts,

We are looking to experiment a new software and our manager would like to test it with some limited info.
For example we should export from our existing system only employees with last name A-D
and from those employees have all correlated tables info
(in some tables only partial info), like schedules only with certain facilities and only going forward etc..

What would you suggest as the easiest way to accomplish it?

Perhaps to create a copy of the Bak file and  delete from there what should not be included?

If I do that, will all the data be removed permanent w/o a way for someone to recover?

The reason I'm asking this is as we want handle over a bak file, however only the info we want start testing with should be included, and there should not be a way to retrieve deleted info from logs or system tables etc..?

Long-time Quicken Windows user. Would love to move to Mac version, but at least with the previous version of Quicken for Mac, the basic checkbook register functionality of the Windows version is lacking, IMO, in the Mac version.

Anyway, I'm looking at other options for Mac-based personal finance software.  One key thing that I am looking for is the ability to migrate from Quicken for Windows withOUT having to gut the names of my accounts. For example, was looking at Banktivity (old iBank) and it clearly states that to migrate from Quicken, I have to shrink the names of my accounts to 15 characters or less. For things like checking and savings that's not a problem, but with my wife's and my investment accounts gutting those names would make it incredibly hard to work with the accounts.

Many of the main providers of backup software have an "agent" for software like MSSQL, AD, Exchange etc. Do such products bypass/remove the need for a DBA to configure the standard inbuilt backup tools from within MSSQL, or do they work/integrate' with that feature within MSSQL, and still write a SQL backup file to somewhere on disc? What I am trying to say is if MSSQL shows a database hasn't been backed up - does that mean it hasn't been backed up by the default MSSQL backup tool, or does that cover both the default MSSQL backup tool and any specialist "sql backup agents" that 3rd party backup solutions may provide.

I have been tasked with assisting a non-profit crisis centre with a simple spreadsheet to track how many clients are being housed at any one time. Clients can stay from hours to days at a time. The staff is comfortable with Excel, but because they are a non-profit, formal training and/or new software is not in the budget. They use excel 2010, in a network environment. They do have a website, which I should be able to get access to.

The structure they need is to have the Administrator modify the spreadsheet, but all end users (about 6) see the changes in real-time, without the need for the user to re-open or refresh.

I am just looking for advice on the simplest way to achieve this for the end user. I researched Excel online, and saw many reports of a buggy experience.

Any advice is appreciated!

Quick question.

I'm trying to do more with Powershell with regard to installing software. However, we have multiple sources for software so using absolute paths (ex. \\server01\software\package.exe) is not a good option. When creating Windows batch files I've found that using %~dp0 is enough to tell the script to search the folder it's in or one below, such as:

"%~dp01\Software\Version\setup.exe"

I've looked online for a Powershell equivalent, the closest I've found is $PSScriptRoot. But it relates to scripts and not to launching EXE or MSI files (as I understand it).

Short version, is there's a relative path variable cmdlet that can be used when pointing to an executable?

Hello - we use Arcserve Backup software to backup our Windows network servers, and are undergoing a restore of a server right now - which is leading us to a question as to how this can be done faster.  Since we have to access the backup files from a LTO6 tape drive, we have to go thru our Arcserve backup server to perform the restore - which means we have to connect via the network to execute the restore.  We also needed to erase the server due to a virus on it.  So we're having to rebuild the OS on the server, in order to load the Arcserve Agent, so that we can specify the machine as the "target" for the restore operation.  Is there a faster way? Does anyone use Arcserve out there?

Thanks for your help

After tuning in to the first podcast I made, I found the intro slow and my voice muffled. Yet I know there were some stellar moments I need to share.

It's on Speaker .com

I will get the MP3 to slice and dice it into small chunks where I would assign each snippet a name: an interesting name what would entice a listener to hear that short piece...

Am I thinking about this the right way?

I would like to offer up a side-bar on my website with podcast events of mine, and when you click an event, you see the snippets that can be listened to for that event.

Are there WordPress plug-ins for this?

Thanks.
