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.

Folks,

I have a client who has migrated from one case management system to another.  The new software developers have converted the various databases across with the exception of one.  For whatever reason they can't do it. I have contacted the old system developers and they can't even export the data.  We have collectively tried everything.

I've been looking at a few possible ways to export the data, one of which is Ui Path Studio.  It basically can record your keystrokes, mouse clicks and field selections (amongst other very advanced features) but it didn't do what I needed (or I didn't know how to use it).  Its a bit like a word macro builder.

Does anyone know of something similar I could try? I'm trying to automate the process of opening a record, copying the 5 fields into a spreadsheet, moving to the next record and repeating.

Thanks

Hi,

We have a client who share data between 2 computers. PC2 connects to PC1 for shared data and some software.

Intermittently, PC2 loses connection to PC1. The share is setup as \\PC1\ Data. When we dial in, we can ping the IP address but not the PC name.

More often than not I will add a shortcut using the IP Address and then the the original shortcut using the PC name will then work. We have tried setting the shortcuts using the IP address but this had the same issue but in reverse.

I have set PC1 to static, checked Computer Browser service and UPNP are set to auto on both. Disabled all advanced sharing settings, reinstalled SMB from features and then Enabled all advanced sharing. It will work for a period of time and then lose connection again.

Any suggestions?

Hi Android Experts,

I'm after an app/program that will allow me to organize all the icons on my Samsung Galaxy S9+ 256GB 4GX phone using my computer.

I recall being able to do this with my iPhones because iTunes displayed the phone configuration on screen and I could drag and drop apps and icons around on my computer screen while my phone was connected, and then the iPhone would update itself with the changes I'd made. I found this highly helpful and an easy way to organize my icons.

I have a LOT of icons and apps installed on my Android phone and organizing them the way I like in a native way on the phone I find to be a pain, so I'd like something that will allow me to do it the way iTunes let me do it with my iPhones.

Ie: Display my Phone screen configuration on my Windows 10 computer screen and allow me to organize my icons using my computer and then have my Android Phone update itself to the configurations that I'd selected on my computer screen. I'm happy to pay for a program to allow me to do this, so it doesn't have to be free.

I've looked through Google Play Store and see a lot of App Organizers, but they all seem to be just apps that are only installed on the Android phone, rather than allow me to connect the phone to the computer and do my organizing there.

Ie: Connect my phone to the computer so I can use my computer to update the icon positions on my phone instead.

Either this isn't available, or perhaps I'm using the wrong search terms on …

Hi Guys,

We've been using Symantec DLO (desktop / laptop option) for a number of years across different sites.
Initially we were satisfied with the product and support, but lately DLO has been giving more and more issues with their technical support becoming poorer as time goes on.

Does anyone perhaps have a suggestion for a comparison product?

We need to install a client on a desktop / laptop, and want to the software to backup critical workstation data to the server on a fixed schedule.

Any ideas are welcome.

Learn SQL Server Core 2016

This course will introduce you to SQL Server Core 2016, as well as teach you about SSMS, data tools, installation, server configuration, using Management Studio, and writing and executing queries.

Got a lecture on MP3.  About an hour long.

Want to cut bits of it into a loop.

Looking for super simple drag & drop audio cutting and splicing.

Audacity seems too complicated.  Need something simpler.  Only requirement is to select blocks of audio and splice them together.  No need for processing or enhancing.

What looks like an easy piece of software to do this?

Hi everyone, I have a bit of a challenge to setup a streaming task and hope I could get some ideas and suggestions from the community.

I try to make a streaming video that runs 24/7 and wonder if anyone has some tips to me for both hardware and software.
My company has donated a piano that will be on a public spot. Now I have the tasks to setup a live stream that is accessible on a website 24/7.
The area has WiFi that we can use. So I try to come up with the best equipment and method to make this happen.

It has to be a 360 Video stream that is broadcasted to a website that is made with wordpress.

Does anyone have some ideas on this, of course I cant pay for a expensive cloud service. So my originally thought was to stream it to YouTube (of alternatives) and than embed this into the website. However, I do not find any good explanation, which surprises me since there are so many people that broadcast on webcams all the time.
I have the added issue that I cant connect Ethernet, it need to be standalone wifi so that i do not need a computer in the piano.

The idea is of course that web viewers can see the person playing the upright piano and they can also see 360 degree around so see the people watching.

Any guidance in terms of setup options and best camera for the job, would be very much welcome. I cant afford to make mistakes because the budget is very tight.

We are after some software to backup Office365 Exchange, hoping someone would have some suggestions.

We want the ability to backup our Office365 Exchange to an offsite remote server in a datacentre - we already pay to have our backup server in a datacentre, so we are not looking to pay for monthly "cloud" backups with storage fee's, when we already have the infrasturcture to do this ourselves.

We are hoping for the following features:

- Fixed price perpetual license
- Ability to backup normal mailboxes and shared mailboxes
- Ability to browse backup and restore emails from within app (Not essential, but would be nice)

If anyone knows something similar or can recommend one that they use?

I am looking for an application which will allow me to tag and filter internet search results, which are found using a Search Engine such as Google, or DuckDuckGo, or Bing.

I do lots of searches, and I'd like the ability to filter out sites I've already visited.
I'd also like to create custom tags for certain sites, such as "This is a great one", or "no good." etc.  I'd like to be able to filter and sort by those tags.

I feel as though this tool must exist somewhere!    From what I've read, Google used to allow to filter out "visited" sites, but it is no longer an option for the last several years.

Thank you for suggestions!

Can anyone recommend an EDI desktop translator similar to the Liaison EDI Notepad, which can be used with a command line?
The Professional Version is apparently no longer available for purchase on it's own, without buying into expensive software.

A desktop EDI translator, relatively inexpensive, and which can be used with a command line is what I am looking for.

Server 2008 R2 VSS Issue

I am currently having an issue where the NTDS VSS writer is not showing when running the VSSAdmin List Writers command. This is causing an issue with our third party backup software not showing any data to backup for AD. I have verified that the Active Directory Domain Services service is running and have even restarted it multiple times an the writer never re-appears. This issue happens randomly after the server has been running for a few weeks without a restart. The moment I restart the server, the writer returns and the backups will go back to working and showing the appropriate data in the AD backup.  Scheduling downtime constantly to fix this issue is not ideal as I shouldn't have to restart the server to correct this issue. Is there any way to get the writer back up without having to do a restart? I have copied the currently active writers below:

LVL 12
CompTIA Cloud+

The CompTIA Cloud+ Basic training course will teach you about cloud concepts and models, data storage, networking, and network infrastructure.

I am attempting to install MS server 2016 standard on a HP Proliant server.  I have succeeded in installing an ISO version of MS server 2016 standard core from the Microsoft VLSC website.  However the OS boots to a CMD.exe login and then leaves me at the CMD.exe command line interface.  When trying to authenticate the server OS software the SLUI.exe app fails due to missing .EXE files and it appears that there is no way to load a windows GUI, as no GUI apps are listed as being available in the installation package.  After spending many hours with MS tech support, at various levels and departments, I have been told that I need to open a support ticket that will cost me $499, in order to solve this problem.

The server's primary function is to run one multi-user application that needs MS SQL Server 2018 Standard running under MS Windows Server 2016.  The installation of the database for the multi-user application is done remotely through a browser running in the Windows GUI.

Any help in getting this server properly setup would be appreciated.  Thanks.

I have a Mac with Parallels for a boot camp
Partition. I want to create a user account who’s sole purpose after login is to start Parallels with the boot camp partition as full screen and should it crash or the user shut down will close the app and log out without being able to make any changes to this account. The user should not be able to reduce the screen to get to any of the other Mac software on the device If I need to maintain, I will do it from an admin account.

Any suggested startup script for this and the appropriate user settings would be appreciated.

Industry 4.0 is no longer new to us, but I would like to know a bit more on its implementation in real world case studies.

For those really had implemented (or going to implement) Industry 4.0 in their corporation's network, what things to focus and how the corporation adapt it through the whole transformation process.

Can you share your experiences in Industry 4.0 implementation?

Feel free to comment and discuss, thanks.

Hi All,

My 8 year old deleted some game data from his tablet (Amazon Fire).  I'd like to see if i can recover it using FAT32 recovery software.

When i connect the tablet to my Windows 10 laptop I can access the drive via > Computer > Fire > Internal storage



When i scan my hard disks using the file recovery software is cant see drive.

I can only guess this is because it shows up in device manager as a Portable Device.



Is there a way to make the drive as a regular drive?  either by mounting or connecting to another PC and accessing remotely



Many thanks

My software has an internal email module and I've figured out how to send mail via SMTP and to include attachments and of course the client wants to see what attachments were sent.

The problem is that SMTP sends the attachment by virtue of setting a path to the file being sent, and my software, being an MS Access application, works with document attachments via the OLE field and the Insert Object command to load the document into a MYSQL LongBlob field via a form with a OLE field.

So my table that stores any attachments to the email has two fields, a text field for the path the user selected to send the attachment via SMTP, and a LongBlob/OLE field the user has to make a second effort using right click, "Insert Object," and then browsing to hopefully the same file, thus having to browse twice for an attachment if they want it saved after sending via SMTP.

I built integration with MS Outlook, which would solve the issue for this client, but this client is using the 64 bit version of MS Office 2013, and my Office 365 64 bit Office version of Access seems to have updated to Office 16 when I wasn't looking and that broke my Outlook integration from working with their 64 bit Access 2013 runtime installations when I deploy the 64 bit version.

Not the end of the world, but I was wondering if anyone can think of a clever way to make this into a single attachment browse effort by either:

1. Exposing the path of the OLE Object after Inserting it into the text field that …
