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 followed the steps found in the attached document (from pages 263-269) to install the System Center Configuration Manager 2016 (SCCM) client software (using the ccmsetup.msi file) by Assigning this software to install using group policy. I have already completed all of the other steps in the rest of this document to properly and completely deploy SCCM 2016 within my Server 2016 domain.

So far this software has installed on several Server 2016 servers but hasn't installed on any of the Server 2016 domain controllers.

What steps can I follow to troubleshoot, determine what is causing this installation to fail, and determine what needs to be done to fix this issue?

We are having an issue with our Exchange server

We are only a small organisation (approx 12 users) using 2008r2 Exchange 2010 sp3 48gb RAM 1tb drive

The server is a DC and file server. It’s not a SBS.

There is loads of free disk space on the server.

We have backup assist software to backup the system and spam fighter software to provide spam filtering for the server.

The server stops sending and receiving mails at approx 4 pm every day and takes a reboot to start sending and receiving mails again. I thought that this may be a “stress” related issue but having read a post regarding this and disabling monitoring we still have this issue.

The server has 2010 exchange SP3 installed the spam fighter and backup assist software is up to date. I have had a look at the mail queues and all seems OK

I am looking for a software solution that will enable me to archive user data to another local location (NAS drive), i need to be able to specify that if data is over 2 years old it moves the data from live source A to Archive target B but retains NTFS Permissions on folders and sub-folders alike.

I have tried google but I am not seeing a suitable solution, if anyone has suggestions i would greatly appreciate it.

I know Robo-Copy is an option but my scripting skill are not great.

Looking for desktop application to create PDF catalog (letter size) of photo images (thumbnails), six per page or more or less, with custom caption (file name normally) for each image.  A catalog with 600 images would be 100 pages long with six photos (3 up and 2 across) per page.  There should be a way to customize the header and footer.

I had this question after viewing Exchange 2010 stops responding on port 25.

I'm running Exchange 2010 SP3 with all rollups, and the Transport service keeps failing.

The server has been working fine for years until now.

I'm seeing no backpressure errors (I have hundreds of gigs free, and far more than enough memory).

There are no errors that I can find (except for Service MSExchangeMailSubmission.  Unable to process anything for over 30 minutes) which comes up a while after the Transport fails.

I can't telnet to port 25 (it just tells me it can't open the connection).

I also can't manually stop or restart the Transport service (it times out trying to stop it).

If I reboot everything works fine for a while (sometimes most of a day, other times only an hour or so), I can send and receive mail, telnet, restart the service, etc.

I have renamed the Data folder under Transport Roles (it rebuilt correctly after a reboot), and removed the antivirus software.

I'm at a loss, and cannot come up with anything else to check

I am a heavy Twitter user and now I am hearing that the Indian government is hiring data experts and buying a surveillance/spy software to find people's whereabouts like in China. Because they don't like the dissent. There are many activists out there (myself included) who would like to be secured to the hilt against this new government spying software too.

What should I do beside running TOR.
Can they trace my phone number?

Any answer would be appreciated.

We are trying to activate a Windows 2008 R2 Enterprise Server and Windows keeps responding that that MAK product key is invalid and we know in fact is not. Microsoft is absolutely no help in the matter and wants a few hundred dollars just to talk.  We are using the command:

slmgr.vbs /ipk xxxxxx

It returns a 0XC004F050 The software licensing service has reported the product key is invalid

The key use in the install was a generic kms key and trying to switch it to the correct MAK one. We tried updating the registry so it does not do an automatic activation but that did not help either. Thank you

This course teaches how to install and configure Windows Server 2012 R2.  It is the first step on your path to becoming a Microsoft Certified Solutions Expert (MCSE).

I used to use a software called QueryCell.  It allowed you to easily take columns from excel and easily create update and insert statements.  Unfortunately this doesn't work with current versions of excel.  Can anyone tell me if they know of something similar?

Fellow EE's, I am looking for some software solution suggestions for auditing asset warranties. Below is a list of desired functions that I would like to have and if anyone has something that can do some of these please feel free to share, thanks in advance!

1. Start/Ship Date, End Date: This is critical. I need to know when a tracked asset is nearing its warranty end to approach extension or replacement.

2. Vendor Neutral: If possible I need a system that can check different vendors if possible. Dell is typically an easy solution which I typically deal with but some clients have non dell systems and servers which causes extra effort to track and adjust.

3. Event Triggers: If possible it would be able to also send notifications to a desired email account or notification outlining a pre-configured time period prior to expiration. This early warning system would be important to give the client time to budget and respond accordingly instead of last minute.

4. System Type Flexibility: Most devices like workstations, laptops, and servers have the ability to check the vendor. I also need the ability to manually add details and fields for systems that may not have a system that can be tracked manually. This would be important for UPS/Battery Backups, Switches, AP's, etc. If it cannot be que'd by an automation system with agents I need to add to the list.

5. Technician Assignments: Would love the opportunity to set the systems into clusters like for specific …

I've installed DYMO Label Software 8.7.2 on Windows Server 2016, and it seems to install fine but when I open the software I get the error shown in the attachment. Clicking OK just instantly closes the software and I cannot get into it.

When I install the software, it installs the pre-requisites. I've then tried doing a 'Complete' install and a 'Custom' with only the 'DYMO Label' component installed, but the results are the same.

Nothing reported in Event Viewer.

I'm not massively familiar with the inner workings of DLS - can anyone suggest how I can troubleshoot this? And what is Data Tracking anyway? Sounds like a component that I don't need anyway.

I had a look in C:\Users\<username>\AppData\Local\DYMO\DLS8 and there were a couple of files there. I tried to open the DLS8.log.xml file but it only gave me one line of information, despite being 580KB. There is also a file in this folder called 'DataTracking' (no extension), which could be relevant. I've uploaded both files here anyway.

Thanks.

Thanks in advance for your help.

I have an external 3 TB OWC Mercury Elite – AL Pro Hard drive.  That is no longer working properly.  I am trying to recover my data.  Windows file Explorer shows the drive but when I click on it, it looks like it is going to load the contents but is no longer able to.  I then get an error message that reads “G:\  is not accessible.  The parameter is incorrect.”  It has also asked me if I would like to format the hard drive which I always say “no.”  

I ran from the command prompt - chkdsk g: /f /r and it was not able to fix the issue.

I have now tried to use Stellar Phoenix Disk Recovery and the software recognizes the drive.  It shows that the drive has data stored but I cannot see the contents.  I initiate the scan it requires and everything seems to be working normal.  Then after 15 or 20 minutes.  Windows file explorer intervenes and I get a message that says, “USB device not recognized.  The last USB device you connected to this computer malfunctioned, and Windows does not recognized it.”  The scan then messes up and I hear the chime that the drive would make when you are plugging it or unplugging it from the computer.  This chime and message will keep reappearing about every minute or so afterwards.

I have tried connecting hard drive to another computer and all the same things happen.

Things to know:

I am using windows 10 pro on my desktop computer (which is where I always kept external hard drive connected) and windows …

web applications vs. custom desktop software.  These are the two scenarios that I am posed with in designing an attendance/registration system for our organization.  Are there disadvantages to web application vs. a desktop software.  I imagine there is more power in the coding aspect of most programs compared to web application development.  I know its an abstract question, but I wanted to see what the experts have to say on this subject.   Is there really no difference?  The application I will need to design will register individuals, take their daily attendance, and then output statistics.  Also any ideas on how to best develop such a program may be appreciate.

Hello Experts:

I had to re-install Windows on my office computer.  This required re-installing all my software.  All is well with the exception of QuickBooks.  I use the 2018 Desktop version.

I email invoices to several customers.  I use Outlook 2016.

I use Outlook for my business email and Thunderbird for my personal email.

When I set up QuickBooks to email invoices, the only option I have is Thunderbird.  It was set to Outlook when I first installed Office.  But after I installed Thunderbird, the option changed to Thunderbird.

Outlook is my default mail program in Windows.  I've edited the .ini file per instruction from Intuit.  I have checked three articles sent from Intuit support that address this situation.  Everything they suggest is satisfied.  Still, Outlook is not available as an option.

Anyone have any suggestions?  I’m guessing it’s a registry hack, I just don’t know where to look or what to thange.

Thanks

I need a batch file to install a Window update on a remote machine. I need to have it check if its online, if its not exit out with an error, if its online look for C:\Temp, if its not there create it. Then copy over the file to C:\Temp and run the file using psexec.exe.

The reason why we are doing it this way is because SCCM is not working for us and NO we cannot use other deployment software. I am however allowed to use a batch file or script.

Hi,

We have an Amazon Fire 7 tablet.

The plan is to use the Fire 7 tablet as a device to display information.

The problem is that when the tablet goes to sleep or runs out of power, the next time the tablet is turned on or woken up, the lock screen appears.

I would like to configure, with the use of an automation app, a function that will activate when the Fire 7 tablet displays its lock screen and automatically unlock by way of a swipe up action on the screen.

Is there an automation app that can do this, mainly a free app.

Thanks,
Robbie

We run PSEXEC often to distribute software and icons.  I was wondering if there was a way or a script that I could run to check and make sure my Icon got installed?  These are for both windows 10 and windows 7
