I'm trying to run the firmware update on a Microsoft Surface Dock. the Surface is running Windows 10 and is up to date.

I installed Surface_Dock_FwUpdate_1.42.139_Win10_17134_19.084.31680_0.msi on the Surface Book, no issues with install, rebooted, but I cannot find the dock updater listed under programs.  I can't find it anywhere.  Does anyone know where the .exe is for this program?

Thanks,

Hello.

Some time ago I tried to clone the main SSD disk and the only partition where I'd installed Windows 10 to another disk / partition using this tool :

https://www.miray-software.com/products/applications/hdclone/basic-edition.html

So,I chosen as target the disk and the only partition that was there (it is solid state disk) and as a target the only existing partition on the destination disk and I started the process. After some time Windows 10 started to working bad,I saw that the icons on the desktop gone away and nothing worked anymore,so taken by the fear,I stopped the operation. I must not do that,really. All the informations stored on every disk and partition (USB and SATA) attached on my PC was gone. I still don't understand why it deleted all the partition tables of every disk NOT involved in the operation. I lost everything in every disk. Maybe that tool has some kind of serious bug. I don't know. Fact is that I found another case like mine.

After some day I tried to recover the data lost with this tool :

https://www.ontrack.com/it/

and I have seen that all the files that have been deleted by that cloning tool are still there,saved on the disks,with the same organization structure. Now,I think that the Miray hdclone basic edition removed the first track of the disks and their partition tables. I would like to know if …

Hi Experts,
What is the easiest way to search for a word within the contents of files in a specific folder, including sub folders?
Would prefer not to install software or change pc settings, as this is needed for a one time only.

When I attempt to log in to my iSeries server via Putty (Port 22) - I am connected to the server, but when I attempt to log in, I get "Access Denied"

I compared my SSHD_CONFIG to other systems and everything appears to be the same.

I verified that other users get the same thing - so this is not related to any specific user...

Any assistance would be much appreciated.

I have an HP EliteDesk 800 G3 small form factor. It has a solid state hard drive. I need to wipe the hard drive, so I'm using "SystemRescue CD" (it's a Linux distro). I boot from the CD and then I type:    shred -v /dev/sda.
     I've used this method to successfully wipe a previous PC, but on this PC it won't work. On this PC it says "no such file or directory."
     I tried several variations on this command (shred --v.....     shred -verbose.....     shred --verbose.....) but it still won't work.
     So then I typed:   fdisk -l   and I got the following:
          /dev/nume0n1p1
          /dev/nume0n1p2
          /dev/nume0n1p3
          (etc)
     I've never seen this before. I thought I'd see something like:
          /dev/sda1
          /dev/sda2
          /dev/sda3
          etc
     So then I typed:   shred -v /dev/nume0n1p     (as well as the 3 variations of this), but it still won't work.

-Anyone know how I can wipe this PC?
-What is "/nume0n1p"?  Is that the solid state version of "/sda"?
-Are the "v" switch and the "verbose" switch one and the same thing?
-Does it matter if a Linux switch has one dash (-) or two (--)?

We have Users who connect to our site via VPN.Some users have poor internet connection and usually end up mailing us that the VPN is offline even if its not.
So i would like to know is there a way to insert ping in BGinfo? That way the user can see the average ping so they know its not the VPN but the internet connection.

Looking for a freeware screenshot capture program for W7 / W10 to:
  • Capture entire screen upon Print Screen button
  • Automatically Prompt the user for a comment, such that they don't have to bring up an image editing program in a UI
  • Then save to disk (jpg, png, etc.)  upon completion of the comment.

I'm attempting to collect feedback from a large number of employees about issues they have with a particular program.
All the machines are cloned and set up identically.
I anticipate writing some light code to then FTP (or maybe programatically email) the file once created.

The old ScreenPrint32 did the comment capture part perfectly for prints (but wouldn't capture this for saved files).  It just popped up a fill in the blank box upon the trigger (Prt Scr button) and as soon as the user hit the OK button on the comments, everything was done.  No more interaction.  Unfortunately, ScreenPrint32 is a little flaky under W10 even when run in compatibility mode for XP sp2.

Something like Greenshot (my fav) saves it nicely, but you have to interact with an image editing program to add a comment.  No bueno.
Thanks.

Canon ImageRunner C5250 with Fiery unit.
All of a sudden, the printer crashed MS Office apps on many computers and I had to remove and reinstall the printer driver.
More details
- When printing in Excel, Excel crashed and prompted to troubleshoot.  Word and other apps did the same thing. If printing a self-test page, Windows Explorer crashed and prompted to troubleshoot.
- To fix the problem, i removed the printer and reinstalled the driver.
- All computers were configured to print to this printer directly. A print server was not used as we found it had more problem with this printer.
- The driver was the one downloaded from the printer itself. (Go to the printer's IP, then go to Download tab)
This printer has a Fiery unit. We were told we should use the driver downloaded from the printer itself
- This happened on Monday

More More Details
- This printer has been a trouble.
At the very beginning, we used a print server (Win2K8) for this printer. People had problems with it all the time. It looked like the problem happened in the early morning for the first user who printed, usually Monday morning. To fix the problem, we asked the user to remove and re-add the printer back.
- Then we were fed up with this and took the advise from the company we leased this printer from - configured this printer directly on computers via the printer's IP address. This has seemed to give us less problems. But what happened on this past Monday was the first time that the problem …

I would like to resurrect an old question since it is about four years old. I am looking for a good network system inventory tool that doesn't break the bank. I really like the PDQ inventory tool however the $500 /year price mark makes it difficult for a small 20 user firm like us. I could probably swallow half that.
I have looked into the original post at: https://www.experts-exchange.com/questions/28570579/Best-and-Free-tool-for-Network-PC's-hardware-software-inventory.html
and the Spiceworks doesn't seem to work for us for some reason.
Are there any other suggestions that are newer products?

Hi EE,

I have a peculiar problem, to say the least. Let me describe the environment:

- Windows IoT devices connect to SQL server to sync their date/time which is done by query
- When the IoT devices can't connect to the network, they revert to their BIOS date/time

We have series of Windows IOT devices running Windows 10 Embedded when they lose wireless network connectivity which infrequently happens they revert to the bios date/time.
However, the bios date/time is always out of sync and from prior analysis points seems to be set to last time the Windows ICD shell was disabled when configuration changes were made to the system.

Any ideas what could be causing this any help is greatly appreciated.

Thank you.

Hi Experts,

I have the following script that

1- downloads from a FTP site all new files to a local folder
2- Copy all downloaded files to another local folder.

However I see that 2nd step is not working properly, it downloads/copies all files again to the 2nd folder, not only the new files.
Can someone help me fix that?
