I have files that I burn to DVD with a player application added to the disk as one of the files.  

When I insert the DVD after burning I open the player and then its always only opening 1 file despite it saying there are 2 files on the disk. These are .DAV files  (using DVD +)

I am using windows 7  and have tried it using the windows CD/DVD burning software and also the program called CD Burner XP and get the same result.   Some one said to me that it probably not finishing off the burning properly so I selected prevent further changes (finalise) on CD burner and still get the same.

I have noticed although not being a DVD RW I am still able to add files to it afterwards .
I try exactly the same procedure with a  CD and it burns and plays properly.   I having use DVD's cos of the file sizes.

Any Ideas?

My issue or question is about software development in genereal.

I am currently studying software development and will be studying software engineering shortly. At the same time I am doing an internship have been asked to create an employee database with Microsoft Access. As I am developing this by myself, I will doing it the traditional way: software elicitation/Analysis/requirements/implementation - the way taught at university.

This morning, I was asked by my boss how long it will take me to complete this project. As I am doing it for the first time in such a structured way, I would appreciate it if I could get some feedback from you guys how long it can take to complete a smaller Access project -  either each phase of development (following IEEE format) or for the entire project.

Although my boss has worked in (big) projects, they apparently never worked in structured way: not agile, spiral, waterfall etc.. Although the product works, I thought that not only is important to deliver a quality product, but also add quality how I work.

Could it be possible that my approach is too structured and some Projects are indeed never done in a structured way?
Or that what is taught in software development/engineering is not applied in real projects - in other words too theoretical?

Thanks for your feedback

New SSL cert applied after the change.
Made sure no IPv6 is running. with the new router/switch.

Everything is working. httsp://access.somedumbdomain.com/rdweb works, all offices can connect. 5 off site locations can connect.

A vendor needs to update his software for the client, we login and to manage rdweb services though the server manager and we discover the A remote desktop services deployment does not exist in the server pool.

I have googled every error in the error logs, tried ever thing in for the words A remote desktop services deployment does not exist in the server pool.

Need reasonably priced Home Office Twain compatible scanning documents software.  MP Navigator suite me well for years but they no longer distribute it with the Canon MX series MFP.  What's a really intuitive scanning software that initiates the scan for ADF or flatbed, makes simple adjustments for single or double sides series of documents, and gives you options for a couple standard formats like PDF or tif, etc?  Is there a really intuitive and elegantly done software that does all that plus organizes your scan documents well?

Hi I wanted to use software mirroring to mirror a Windows 10 drive, system actually.  I'm going to use like a 250 ssd, don't think that matters.

I know the older version of windows didn't let you software mirror unless you had Ultimate, or maybee Pro.  

Question, Windows 10, what version comes with the mirroring capability.

I need an offline database solution for PC that is easy to use. I've created an Access database and it's causing me more trouble than it's worth. I'm thinking of just using a spreadsheet, but thought I'd pick your brains. Basically, I am totally cool with a spreadsheet of data, but I want to see all the fields on one page at a time. Google forms sound perfect GUI-wise, but I'd also like to be able to search and modify the spreadsheet data within the form (not just submit info). I tried with an Access form but I messed up the relationships or something so now the form is duplicating its own records sometimes and I'm over it. Any ideas for something I can't screw up and stays offline? Either offline or an online solution with the ability to encrypt the data using a key not available to the host organization.

I have a Canon TX-3000 printer with a scanner.  The printer and scanner use SmartWorks MFP software.  A standard user is not able to launch this application.  When launching the application the user is presented with a UAC asking for admin credentials.  I would like to leave UAC on, and resolve the prompt for elevated credentials.  I have tried to create a scheduled task specifying the path and credentials to be used.  Although the task says it was successful, I do not see the application launch.

Trying to create a script that will create a customer order and the lines for that order when our other branch office creates a purchase order.

The Tables I am working with are:
Purchase_Order
Purc_Order_Line
Customer_Order
Cust_Order_Line

So when they enter in an order on the software it inserts that into the purchase_order table. So I
added a code into the Insert trigger

BEGIN
If @VENDOR_ID = 'RIP01' AND @SITE_ID = '111RIPUK'
EXEC dbo.POIMPORT_UK @PO_NUM = @ID
END

So that works pretty well and executes the POIMPORT_UK Stored procedure but only some of the query works.
When the insert trigger get triggered the Customer Order Gets created, The Next Order ID advances to the next number, PO gets updated with the Reference customer order Id, and email gets sent out. The one that doesnt seem work automatically is the query that creates the lines on the customer order.

If I manually run the exec command manually and specify the PO #, all of the code works.
EXEC dbo.POIMPORT_UK @PO_NUM = '#####'    



Stored Procedure
/****** Object:  StoredProcedure [dbo].[POIMPORT_UK]    Script Date: 9/5/2018 11:43:29 AM ******/
SET ANSI_NULLS ON
GO
SET QUOTED_IDENTIFIER ON
GO
ALTER proc [dbo].[POIMPORT_UK]
@PO_NUM NVARCHAR(15)
AS
SET NOCOUNT ON

This Query Creates the Customer Order

I have tried looking the source code and tried a software called url helping but no luck.

Any windows software or even Android software which can get me the streaming url that would be great. I even have a rooted android phone so if any app you think will get me the url then please share so I can try it.

I have a very large set of assorted PDF files. They contain searchable text, but the text is filled with errors. If I save a page from the PDF as an image, and use my OCR software on it, I get a much better result. So, I would like to re-OCR all of the files — but first I need to "flatten" all of the text objects in the PDFs, since none of my OCR tools will overwrite any existing text.

I do have Acrobat X and XI Pro, and I've tried using a batch action to strip the text and rerun OCR, but anytime the program encounters an error, it interrupts the process with a dialog box. I searched for a way to prevent this, but there does not appear to be one.

So, the way I see it, I need one of three things:

1. A way to force Acrobat to skip over errors in batch actions and process the remaining files. I could swear you used to be able to do this.

2. A batch OCR tool, free or paid, that will remove and replace all existing text objects.

3. A tool to batch-flatten all text objects in a large set of PDFs (so I can then run them through OCR). I've found software that looks related, but everything seems to either delete text, which I don't want; or else it flattens form fields, images, etc. but does not mention text.

Any of the three of these would solve my problem. I'm open to other suggestions too, of course -- any advice is greatly appreciated!

We are currently using an SSO kiosk software (Imprivata).  Windows automatically logs into windows using a shared AD account and then locks.  Individual users can then login with their own credentials to run software etc..  The problem is that when each user logs in, they do not have access to their home directory documents folder.  THe shared autologon account maps the AD drive throu GPO as it would for any other account on our network. The SSO software can incorporate VBS scripts during logon/logoff.

I am attempting to map their home directory folder, but having issue.  I can get all the way to the home$ folder, but not the username folder.  Attached is the script I am running.  It seems like there is something the system doesnt like about the %username% variable?

Option Explicit
Dim objNetwork, strRemotePath1
Dim strDriveLetter1
strDriveLetter1 = "M:"
strRemotePath1 = "\\cmc-vserver\home$\%username%"
Set objNetwork = CreateObject("WScript.Network")
objNetwork.MapNetworkDrive strDriveLetter1, strRemotePath1
Wscript.Quit
