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 trying to update from Access 2002 to access 13. I can convert without issue but my application is huge and access 2013 will not create an MDE file because there are too many objects in the database. I seem to remember that an access third party produced some useful tools. I thought the company was called Access Everything but I cannot find them.

I am hoping I can find some software that will eliminate many of the redundant queries forms and reports that I have built up over the last 16 years. Any help would be appreciated.

Hello Randal,

Thanks for the email, however I don’t think I have joined your service.  An article by your Joe Winograd came up when I was searching for how to fix an issue with my scanner & Paperport 14.  Unfortunately, having followed his various suggestions I am no further along, other than now I have uninstalled the old Paperport so may be royally in a pickle.

I am not an IT professional so not eligible for membership of your community.  I am just someone who uses a PC and wishes we could go back to the olden days when you installed software from discs and the PC just happily went along until you decided to do something to it.  Nowadays I feel like I would be justified sending a monthly invoice to Microsoft for all the work they make me do trying to figure out how to sort the issues caused by their latest ‘helpful’ update.

Please give my best to Mr Winograd.   In case he’s still interested in Windows 10 and Paperport, here’s what happens when I try to installed 14.5 from the link provided in his article:

This runs:

 

Then I’m asked to select my language and this pops up (normally in English – must have accidentally clicked Deutsche this time!):

 

I’ve done a Windows uninstalled and the special Nuance uninstall, rebooted between each stage and still the same as above.

I did also download the patch (Patch 1) which he suggested but guess there’s not a lot I can do with the patch if I can’t get the .exe to run.

I am now going away to have a …

Hi
I like the dark net being a philosophy of specialized software to access secret functionality. My friends and I need a private document editing environment

Are most Darknet sites done in Wordpress, with secret logins? I read it's specialized software.
If the hegemon wanted to access my site, would they just use brute force?
If I make my own software, I can do multiple access attempts lockdowns. Can Wordpress restrict multiple access?
Would a PHP site fulfill this specialized software need?
We just need a login page that goes to a document editing/comment system. where I can give my friends unique login info for. It is for a project development colab
Ideas? Thanks

Upgrade your Question Security!

Your question, your audience. Choose who sees your identity—and your question—with question security.

Running Windows 10 and I've got two small music playing apps, Small Player and XMPlay, which I use for playing WAV files and mod files.  No need for something big like VLC  or Windows Media Player (found it on my system) or AIMP or Winamp.  They are basically small apps that run locally under my standard restricted account.  

However I'd like to move them out - entire working folder - to under "Program Files (x86)" so all users of the computer can use them.  Which brings up the problem.  They have their own data files created by the user (which is me) which reside inside the application's directory.  And those files will be locked by Windows (I presume) and stop other non-admin users from modifying them.

So how do I set the permissions on these files so that all non-admin users can write, read, modify and delete those files.  I think that's the permissions I need.

I've attached graphics of the present directory contents for the two applications.  For Small Player it is the top two files and for XMPlay it is the top four files.

Cisco IP Phone 7941 still trying to upgrade.

Physically took phone to TFTP Server and uploaded current OS software to the phone.

Everthing in Call Manager looks good.

Cleared port security on the switch.

Phone daisy chained to PC.

PC has good Internet/Network connectivity.

Windows 10 doesn't seem to have a calculator.  I may be wrong here and if I am please point out where it is to me.  The Math Input Panel is not a calculator.  Whoever in Microsoft wanted that will be consigned to the deepest depths of Hell if I have any say in the matter.

If there isn't one then please point out a nice free one for me to download.  + - x / like the old calculators which Windows used to have.  Maybe a % and some MEM functions.  That is pretty much it.

If  you want to recommend more fancy ones then you can do so but I'm only really interested in something simple.

I have a 128 GB PNY flash drive that I purchased for transferring and transporting files.  I was able to load a lot of files onto the drive, and work with it, but I just tried to copy files to and from the drive and all of a sudden I get a "write protected" message, and can't use the drive (the existing files on the drive appear and are accessible).  There's no hard switch for write protection on the drive, and I can't find any evidence of a software program or setting (either on or off the drive) that could account for this problem.  I tried formatting the drive, but get the same "write protected" message.  Please help.

Thanks,

Phil

Where do I go within System Center Configuration Manager 2016 (SCCM) to view the following information:

1. A computer's stats such as processor type, hard drive size, etc on a particular client computer.

2. A complete list of what software is installed on a particular computer

Hi all,

I need to test a network for a client and I'm looking for some open source software. Basically need to test the infrastructure to see if there are any network points that may be causing issues. This will basically mean achievable network speed and also if there are any points that may be causing congestion due to loose connections or something.

Anything come mind?

Thanks

Hi
I need an encryption solution for my company and we need some password free encryption for our users. I found a great article about the perfect solution for our problem in this https://www.experts-exchange.com/articles/25879/A-new-aspect-to-securing-USB-data-SID-protectors.html article. I was wondering do we need MBAM tool to manage the encryption process if we follow the process described in the article or we need a third party software for that? Can we restrict users to get access to public key as well. Thanks in advance for your help.

I have a client who runs a franchise and the software provided by the franchise only works on Windows XP. At the begining of the year we replaced their workstations with Windows 10 PC's running virtual VM ware with windows XP which is running fine. The file server is running windows 7.

As it is now time to change the file server we relaced it with a Windows 10 Maching.

The problem now is the Windows XP machines wont find or map a network drive to the new Windows 10 maching although I can ping it from anvirtual XP maching.

All firewalls are disabled and in network and sharing centre network discovery is enabled.

Hi, I am trying to download the software for the SanDisk Wireless Stick but not having any luck.  I went to the download site and it says my drive is not connected but I have it plugged into a usb port and is blinking.  It shows up in the control panel "add a device" so I don't know how to sync this with the computer.

Also I don't understand what they mean by the ################## they show on their page.  What are they refering to?  Should I first try to connect to my router instead of the computer?  If someone is familiar with this I would appreciate your help.
ThanksPic 1
