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'm looking to upgrade about 20 computers at our business and I want a good deal.  The software the computers will be running are office 365 and a Remote desktop connection to a server that hosts our accounting software.  That is all, other than a network printer they will print to.  I found this computer on Newegg.com and was wondering if it would be enough specs for the task:  Lenovo ThinkCentre M92 Intel Quad-Core i5 (3.2GHz), 16GB RAM, 240GB SSD, DVD, Windows 10 Pro, WiFi, Keyboard and Mouse

The price is $244

I am a little confused why this machine costs so little.  Is it because it is a quar-core i5 (3.2) and manufactures are well past that?

Hi,

I'd need to upgrade some software on a vm, the software uses backend SQL.
I can take a snapshot of the vm, but how do I backup (restore?) the SQL (2008)  in a quick & simple way?

Hello experts - I'm looking for some advice on how to handle application deployment and updates.  I work for a small architectural company that is growing fast.  I've been able to manually deploy software for the last few years but we're set to grow even faster in 2020 so I need to get away from this.  I'm looking for a solution that will allow me to easily deploy new applications and application updates from a centrally managed location.  I have a total of three offices with approximately 100 staff.  We use standard design tools like the Autodesk architectural suite, Bluebeam, Adobe products, Lumion, Sketchup, and soon Office 365.  The Autodesk deployments give me the most trouble since it is a very large install that takes me 5-6 hours to remove the older version and get the latest installed and patched.  I'd very much appreciate any recommendations on ways to get away from manually deploying all of this each year!

Hello everyone, I got a new install and the user can not find their Adobe Acrobat DC 2015 software, is there a way I can get the serial number from software and download another copy of Acrobat DC 2015 and use that serial number? The user has looked everywhere with no luck of finding the original disk or download but they really don't want to buy another copy.

For the first time the non-profit institution I volunteer for is doing a sweepstakes.  We want to encourage people to register for our events.  So we are creating a give-away which will let someone register on our page for the event and each time they register they will have another entry that will increase their chances of winning the prize in April.  Since we haven't done this before, I wanted to ask anyone who has if there is any free software out there that will do the tracking for us.

This is how I forsee this going:
Each time a person uses our registration form, they get entered with one chance to win
each person can enter one time per event
in April we want to have all the entries and will pick the winner out of a "hat"
Those running the sweepstakes and working for our institution are not eligible to win.

Is there free online software to track/do this?

Hi Experts,

I am looking for a good software to map my home network. I have looked through EE search engine but could not really find the software I am looking for...

Specs are:

- list all IPs in my networks including IPs for device connected in Wifi (phones, tablets...) and on the LAN
- provides a visual chart / diagram on how these devices are connected on the network with icons and IPs
- give some information on each device detected (MAC, supplier...)
- Not a professional software that costs thousands of dollars...

Freeware of software up to $100 are fine
Waiting for your suggestions, thanks

Python 3 Fundamentals
LVL 13
Python 3 Fundamentals

This course will teach participants about installing and configuring Python, syntax, importing, statements, types, strings, booleans, files, lists, tuples, comprehensions, functions, and classes.

I own a domain. I know very little about publishing to the internet. My website is essentially there to describe things I do and have a place for photos to reside to let others to view. I used to use Frontpage which served my purpose just fine. I would like to find the MOST basic and simple software to assist me in posting just a FEW simple no feature pages to my tiny site. I do not want to be locked down to using any companies site as host not do I want to be forced to use anybody's "pay for" templates. I am searching for only a very BASIC assistant type software so that it will make things a bit easier for me to post extremely simple informative pages. The pages will have at most a table or two and several pictures or links to an index page that shows thumbnails of the pictures available for the subject at hand. If something like this exists it would be software that would take only perhaps an hour to learn to use it since the requirements are so very basic. Could you please advise me of a few sites or titles of software that might assist me?

Hi,

We are using a RUT955 router running a OpenVpn server to software client. Specifically we have one host running OpenVpn client (local ip 10.50.10.153) connecting to OpenVpn Server on the router with network 172.16.31.0/24.

One way communication traffic from client to server lan works as expected, but we also want to initiate traffic from the server side to the client network.

We have tried to configured certificate and network according to instructions i section "Server to Client" in https://wiki.teltonika.lt/view/OpenVPN_configuration_examples#Server_from_Client.

client.png
However we are unable to ping and connect to the client network. We can ping the virtual interface of the client from the server side.

Routingtable from router.

Please advise

Kind regards

Hello. I have installed Windows 10 with a user account (admin type), username all this linked to a Microsoft account (through a xxx@hotmail.com email address). Then I installed some software and drivers etc..
What I want is to change my username and remove any link to Microsoft account and system.
I have tried to create a new admin user and remove the original one but
1- The software and drivers are no longer there
2- I still see the name of the first account when I boot Windows and reach the login page
So I guess this is not the way to do it.
Thanks

We are trying to install Adobe Acrobat 17 on certain employees computers. The install will complete after putting in the serial number. But once you try to launch the application it pops up for a moment and closes out. At this time the EULA is supposed to pop up and accept it. But it does not. So the software is in a forever state of opening and closing and not allowing us to accept the EULA. I have tried running it as an administrator and this still happens. Any advice would be greatly appreciated!

I am a C# newby with a recently upgraded Epicor software and need some help.

I need some code to put in a query and have no clue how to write it.  In the ABL language I was used to it would be something like this

If IsNull(LaborHed.PayrollDate) then Today
else LaborHed.PayrollDate

In my own words I want to check if a date field is blank or null.  If it is blank or null then put in today's date otherwise use the date in the field.

I have perhaps 75 33.3 rpm LP records of classical pipe organ music. I wish to convert them to WAV format to preserve them. On a 1-10 scale they are in 9.5 condition average. I am seeking software that will fairly easily eliminate the crackles and pops that will be there for sure in places. Does anyone have experience with the NCH Software product named above? I DO have Audacity but am not familiar enough with it to know if it would be a good choice for my application. For those that care  I will be inputting the LP using a B&O 8002 linear tracking turntable or a MusicHall MMf 7.3 turntable with the analog output converted to optical for input to my computer. I have not decided which if the best turntable to use. There is probably next to no difference in quality. Thoughts? Suggestions?

Does anyone have a POWERSHELL script or know the whereabouts one that will search for a particular bit of software installed on network machines.

The machines to check will come from looping through a text file for the machine names to check and output to a csv file with machines that have the software installed. if it cant connect then it will put unable to connect in the field.

Text File will list all the machines to scan
CSV output will show the following 'Machine name' 'Installed, Yes/No' 'Cant connect'

Thanks in Advance

Powershell Script required if any one has it or can point me in the right direction

I would like something like this but would check machines and find one particular bit of software, say "Microsoft" and populate a CSV with the list of machines that it has found whilst also mentioning machines in the same spreadsheet machines that are offline.

This script is close, great for finding ALL apps installed and creates individual reports. Problem is, I have 7000 machine to check and reading that many reports would be almost impossible.

PS Script --> read a text file --> scan the machines in text file --> Will check for a particular bit of software --> populate a list of machines in csv with the following header 'computer name', installed yes/no and online yes/no.

Thanks very much in advance

We have a script set to run via Group policy to install a small software package at startup. This script has proved to be inconsistent when run in this way (failures produce error code 1603 in logs), but in all cases the install works fine when the same script is run manually following user logon.

This does not appear to be linked to location (ie link speed) and is happening at all locations (including local network). All target PC's are Windows 10.

Our theory is that this may be due to timing and that the deployment needs to be delayed during PC start, but we're open to other suggestions.


Can anyone offer insight into this and provide a possible fix?

What is the difference between the spaced repetition flashcard software at super-memory.com and supermemo.com?  

Seems supermemo.com is a report of the original?  

But, all the videos online seem to reference the super-memory.com and hail it, and its albeit clunky interface, as a real key for learning.

No two websites could appear more different.  And, each SEEM to share the same creator?
