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 have been recommended a software called benchmark, but cannot find it. I have someone who wants me to stress test their PC and make sure the laptop battery is running fine (they installed RAM, and said it won't turn on until it's plugged in) any suggestions?

I am attempting to run a program named Fences 3.0 by Stardock Software. It is giving me multiple requests after install to do various things to my hard drive. I had simply purchased the upgrade and installed it the most intuitive way. I requested Stardock's assistance and they replied: "Do not set Fences.exe to run as Admin and those message will go away."  I did not see any option during installation to  do or not to do anything similar to what they are asking me to do. I have no idea how to accomplish their suggestion.  I already uninstalled the software then ran their batch routine to eradicate any traces of their software then reinstall. I am getting the  same popups. How to I go about following through with what they are asking me to  do here?

Hi,

I used Red-Gate's backup software to backup my SQL databases overnight. But now we have moved to Azure's infrastructure and I cannot use this software to connect and backup Azure's databases unfortunately.
Does anyone know of any software that would allow me to connect to Azure's SQL servers and backup the database locally?

Hi Friends,

My company has 50 users in total with domain infrastructure (Windows Server 2012 Standard Edition). I wanted to install server health monitoring tool which can generate server health report and email to the designated email on everyday basis.

Any cheapest solution? Any Idea, which software is worth to buy?

Thank you in advance.

I am working with a small group of sales people and we'd like to divide commissions in thirds for each of us. But I see this would mean we'd need some corporate entity to manage this. But that is not the reason for my question on EE.

What systems exist for dividing commissions? I see this as a potentially complex process to manage.

Are there systems that can be licensed or used online to manage this for me?

I use a Mac, so any non-web app would require Mac support.

Thanks

We have an older server that we are using to evaluate some software we are looking to purchase.  I set it up with a Windows Server 2012 Standard R2 180 day trial for this evaluation.  that trial has since expired and I am trying to determine what me best course of action would be going forward.  My thought is that once we decide to move forward with this software that i will likely end up purchasing a new server for better performance so i am not sure what i should do? or even what i can do....

Obviously I could just buy a license for the 2012 R2 Standard, but what i am wondering is if its possible to purchase a 2016 license and activate it on a 2012 system?  and if so, could i then in the future potentially move this license to a new server with 2016 installed at some point down the road?

Thanks

The TASCAM DR-05 recorder used to record sermons seems to have stopped recording, While it will playback previous recordings (copied from MacOS), new recordings fail to record. During my investigation, I received a notice that the recording software license had expired. A renewal is $29.99 until 11/15/2019, then $40. I am not convinced this is true, but seems worth the expense to make recordings.

Does this license expiration make sense? The DR-05 manual  mentions BWF compliant recording software, but nothing about license or renewal.

There is driver software which can be downloaded at no cost.

Faxes are not routing to users email mailboxes (both at local user level and at exchange level).  Oddly i do get emails stating the faxes have been received and sent on properly.  But they never arrive in either the rightfax user area, nor in the exchange email.

The only errors i can find:
Right Fax Server Module: event id 3312, DRF: Unable to load administrator user record.  Skipping activity log scan...

The last good email that landed in an exchange mailbox was back on Monday around 3pm est.  I can't find any windows updates that were applied around then, or any major changes really at that time.

I have verified that the email address it uses to deliver faxes is working properly and is not locked out etc.  (note the email used to deliver faxes is different then the email address used to deliver status updates on a fax sent/received...both have been verified by logging in to them in AD and sending test emails...also i've tried putting the user id and pw info back in to the services...as well as tried changing the id's and email addresses to other id's and pw's...).  Note 2: status messages are delivered properly, and state that everything is working properly basically...So if i send a fax to another internal user, i get a message back stating it was sent correctly...but the fax never shows up in the RightFax users box, or the exchange mailbox its supposed to end up in.

All,

I found these PowerShell commands on a website to pull a software lists from two separate machines and compare the lists.  My questions are:

1.  Is it possible to automate this with PowerShell ISE?
2.  Can this be scripted so it accepts the domain credentials and both computer names as variables?
3.  Can the output be saved to a network share?  \\servername\myshareddrive, for example.

I have figured out how to run single commands in PowerShell, but I have zero experience with PowerShell ISE and scripting multiple commands.  What would the script look like if this can be accomplished?

Hi,

When we add a new feature to our web application, I insert a "NEW FEATURE" banner into the appropriate page. e.g.

NEW FEATURE: The system now supports reciting pi out to 20 decimal places. Click here for details.

I'm now documenting a change to existing functionality and want to announce this update in a similar manner. But, it's not a new feature. What would be a viable alternate term? ENHANCEMENT? SOFTWARE CHANGE? <Something else?>

Thanks,
Steve

Hi all,

I have been asked to provide a solution to track users internet usage and block some websites.

My first thought was a proxy "device", I could lock down the machines via GPO point them to the proxy and then have a bit of software reporting on all usage.

I have the ability to either go for a device that would do this or I could spin up a VM to house the software.

Would anyone be able to recommend something that I could use?

Thanks in advance

I have this old batch file that I used to upgrade a software and since it is time for another one I have tried creating a GPO and assigned it under User Configuration>Windows Settings>Logon.

But when testing with a user logging on the batch file wont run but when manually clicking the file it runs perfectly fine!

Here is the code:  xcopy "Source" "Destination" /S /C /I /H /R /Y

Users have a full time mapped drive from where the source file is copied to the local drive C:\Folder

Note that robocopy is the same and doesn't run automatically.

Microsoft is on a roll. Windows 10 has to be approaching the status of "Worst Operating System Ever". Every time they come out with a new version the pain intensifies. It looks like they finally killed of IE 11...

  That in itself isn't a big deal but the software for all OfficeJet Pro 8600 printers is now crashing and won't install. I have a lot of them on a network. It will scan the network properly but when I select one to install it crashes with an "unknown" error.

   I have tried "Run As Administrator" and even tried it logged in as administrator. I have tried it on several 1709 computers and it crashes on all. Any ideas? (short of reverting back to 1703)...

Hi,
I am doing some work on a client's PC and she has asked me to recommend some video viewing and editing software.
Video software is something I know absolutely nothing about.
Could somebody, familiar with the software on the market, please provide some information on what is out there that is user friendly and either free or reasonably priced.
Thanks for your help.

I have a Cpa Client who wishes to receive data from clients but have it encrypt on their end before it transports to our office

Wanted to use Dropbox with SecreteSync but the Sync software is set for end of life.

Is there another software like it out there? or is there a platform I can use to accomplish this function

We believe we should provide the Encryption since we are requesting it.

Today i tried to write a movie on dvd disk, but when i inserted disk it showed nothing in "My Computer" as well as in "device manager"(DVD/CD-ROM is missing from Device Manager). Disk rotates, but that's it. I tried to see if problem is held in bios and it seems not (in boot options dvd/cd-rom is first). Disk with software on it (for example Linux OS) is being loaded just fine. Sometimes after windows restart cd/dvd drive is being shown, but not for long (gone after i open cd-rom to put disk in it or simply some time passes). I can't reinstall driver because :
1) i couldn't find it on manufacturer website (i have a disk, but can't check if its there)
2) device manager is not showing me DVD/CD-ROM section at all

I am using windows 7 64-bit

Please help!

Virus removal?
AntiVirus?
Ransomeware protection?
Cleanup of Systems?

I really just want to compare what tools I am using to most current softwares to make sure I am not missing things on cleanup...

Thanks for any input!  I appreciate it!
