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 an engineer coming to upgrade software on 3 servers overnight. He will need access to only 3 x Server VM's.

Is there a way to give him access via the VShpere Web Client so he only has admin access on those 3 x server and can't see any other machines.

I can create him a temp user in AD.

I can just give him Remote Desktop Access but just in case he may need to access via VSphere.

Hello,

My company's MS Access VBA software uses Azure Blob Storage and allows users to upload files from their computer to our blob storage. I have a user that requested for the file dialog box filter to default to what they last selected. Currently the filter always defaults to Image files and usually this user uploads PDFs. Is there anyway to get the filter to default to the last filter the user selected? Please see attached file to view the current code for the file dialog.

Thanks in advance!

I am using macrium reflect on two laptops. On my windows 7 laptop, I go to an image, right-click, choose explore, and it creates a new drive with all my folders in it.

On the windows 10 laptop (someone just replaced the hard drive and insisted he copied everything over, but we're missing a bunch of stuff), it gets to the "creating a drive" portion, finishes, but the drive never shows up.

Any thoughts? Thanks.

Error messageHello Everyone,
I hope you all are doing well.  Attached, I have a Visual C ++ error message that a user got when he was at a work training.  He claims that other people were able to use it just fine.  I am waiting to hear back to see if there is anything different with their computers as compared to his.  The program is contained in a folder with a bunch of system files that application calls upon, it is not installed on the computer itself.  I and another tech got a copy of this folder and we get the same error message.  We are going to play around with it and see if we can make this work somehow.  I am just wondering if anyone knows about this.  
The user's computer is running Windows 7 pro
My computer is running Server 2016 Datacenter
my co-worker's computer is running Windows 10 pro

 If you guys think it an issue with the software itself, please let me know.  Any kind of programing fixes that people give me, I will not understand as I am not a software developer and if the fix comes down to that I will simply say that the developers need to fix this.

Thank you guys!!!

I've been using Rick Fisher's Find & Replace for MS Access for many years. Another developer is trying to purchase the software, but is getting no response from  Rick Fisher. Does anyone know if he's still selling it? http://www.rickworld.com/index.html

I would like to read what's in Clam AV's safebrowsing .cld
(that lists the blacklisted sites).

After following some suggestions online, extracted from
the cld file  the following (using dd & 7zip):

08/11/2018  02:14 PM       113,037,608 safebrowsing.gdb
08/11/2018  02:14 PM               514 safebrowsing.info

How can we read/extract the gdb file?

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?

On a new Win10/PRo 64 machine, I'm trying to install a program I used on the old computer - TreePad, a simple two-pane organizer. Their web pages say the program has been adjusted for windows 10. First problem, when I open from a shortcut or directly from the .exe, the program seems to open twice, then the second instance closes itself. Second problem, I'm on a two monitor setup and when I move the program to monitor 2, use it and close, then reopen, it open back on its fixed position on monitor 1 (yes, the double opening again.) I've tried all the suggestions (turn off edge sticking in the os etc.) Yes, I've written to the software developer. No response. Yes I could but another two pane organizer, but this one is very good. I've tried Ultramon to try to pin it to monitor 2 and even that reliable program won't help. Thanks.

https://www.petges.lu/support/
I used the above tool on my home PC where I hv admin
rights to install it.


https://www.portablefreeware.com/index.php?id=2760
However, I don't have the rights to install on office PC so
I tried the portable tool from above from the above link:
it mentions it could "change timestamps and system
attributes"

After downloading & playing with it & read the manual,
don't see anything that enables it to change say the
creation/modified  date/time.

Anyone care to explore to see if I miss anything?  Or
suggest any other portable freewares that could
change files creation/modified date/time.

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 sever genre folders containing mp4 video stored on a Synology network drive feeding a couple of Media servers. Plex, for example.

I'd like to be able to determine  how many times each video is being watched over time. Is that possible, and how would I go about creating something like that?

Now, my question is ...

I am ready to customize the website.  I am attaching a video of Dashboard.generatepress.swf

How do I proceed? I upgraded to Generatepress Pro. Will this be a problem?

followup question to Website Development Case Study (https://www.experts-exchange.com/questions/29124521/Website-Development-Case-Study.html)

I plan to get a Review Website off the ground (with affiliate marketing the right way).

WordPress is set up on my site: https://wireoo.com/

Now, my question is ... I want to design a website like Digital Trends https://www.digitaltrends.com/.  Is this type of site logically attainable? Or, will I be racked with major competition?  

When you look at Digital Trends Entertainment sectionhttps://www.digitaltrends.com/best-products/, there is a section of the website that is devoted to Online Movie Providers. I like that!

Am I going in the right direction with this review website?  

For the Appearance, I am starting with the header appearance. I want the text logo to begin the menu just like the two websites that I mentioned.

I want the header to be black in color with a mega menu.  Is this achievable for today? And, yes, I want to take small steps.

I have a restore of a production server, lets call it ProdAppServer01. The customer wants to have it renamed to another name lets call it DevAppServer01, but remain in it's current state and be joined to the domain for application upgrade testing.
This is a Windows 2008 R2 server.
From everything I have read I am not able to run NEWSID on this server.
From everything I have read, I do not want to run Sysprep.

The customer needs it to be identical to the production server for the purpose of testing the installed software upgrade with the vendor.

If I power on this machine off the network, put it in a workgroup, and rename the server, can I then put this server on the network and domain with its new name and not knock the production server off of the domain?

I tried something similar before. But I put it on the network and changed the name and it stole the OU object for the original server and renamed it causing a production outage. I cannot have this happen again.  I also do not have a development network to test this on.

Acronis True Image 2019 just released!

Create a reliable backup. Make sure you always have dependable copies of your data so you can restore your entire system or individual files.

I am looking for software that could monitor when a computer is turned on or off, and which user was logged in when this was done..
If it contains other features then this is fine as well. however...
Also, does the software need to be installed on the suspect computer, or perhaps monitored remotely from a computer on the same network which has admin rights..
It needs to be determined if an unauthorized person is logging into this computer, and also what activity they are doing.

I found this cute little affiliate website online called Testfreaks https://www.testfreaks.com/

This website has been around since 2007.

I would like to recreate it.  It is a very lucrative website.

It looks like a category directory for reviews.

Can someone tell where I can get this script or an alternative?  Also, it looks to have a customer reviews in a data feed. I have looked everywhere.  

It is so easy to take this one! Lol

Seems like I can only erase what I've drawn into the picture
in Snipping Tool but not what's been captured : is this supposed
 to work this way?

MSPaint is not good as I can't capture a portion of the screen
& edit/erase or capture a scrolling section of IE.  SnagIT could
do this.

Is there a portable free version of SnagIT-like tool for Win 10?

Looking for a compelling reason to continue with my current database upgrade choice.  Currently we are proceeding down the path of upgrading from Oracle RAC database 12.1 to 12.2c, rather than the much talked about Oracle 18c.  Apparently there was much fanfare at OOW and our J2EE Software Developer are very interested.  However, I have already start my investigation/research and practice with Oracle Database 12.2c.  How can I persuade folks that 12.2 is just as a good direction? Need to be able to make really good argument.
