Windows 10 is a personal computer operating system featuring the "universal application architecture" (UAP); apps can be designed to run across multiple devices with nearly identical code, including PCs, tablets, smartphones, embedded systems, Xbox One, Surface Hub and HoloLens. Windows 10 also includes a virtual desktop system, a window and desktop management feature called Task View, the Microsoft Edge web browser, support for fingerprint and face recognition login, voice-based search (Cortana), new security features for enterprise environments, and DirectX 12 and WDDM 2.0 to improve the operating system's graphics capabilities for games.

Hello,

We use GoToMeeting, we'd like to get a web camera to connect to our TV (and hopefully somehow to a PC wirelessly). Any options here?

I ran into a issue with what I use as my standard connection to sql 2014 from Crystal Reports 16 Service Pack 4.  It seems that after a Microsoft update the other day the OLE DB (ADO) connection does not show anything related to the database.  ie tables, sp.  

I even tried to make a new OLE DB (ADO) connection.  It will connect to the db but again will not show any of the tables...ect.

I have attached a screenshot of the connection.

Hi,
I have a user that has been experiencing some issues that I believe might be associated with her domain account.  She experiences the same issues, long login time, issues accessing network shares, workstation performance issues, etc.   The same symptoms occur not matter which workstation she logs into.  When I login or I use another users login on her workstation everything is smooth and responsive.

Besides the last resort option of trashing her domain account and creating a new domain account what can I do to try and fix this?

Thanks

We have a legacy application (Paradox) that worked just fine in Windows 10 versions 1511 and 1607. However, on any pc that has gone through the update to version 1703, this application no longer launches. If you just double-click on the shortcut or executable, the program flashes (can be tough to see), but doesn't actually open. If you right-click and select 'Run as Administrator', the prompt comes up to allow the program to make changes, and when you select 'Yes' the program flashes and doesn't open. A consent.exe error is entered in the application log. I have attached a screenshot of the error log entry, as well as included the details below.

I have tried completely uninstalling the program (including registry entries, then rebooting) and re-installing, but the same behavior is still seen. I did find one thread that was similar, but the solution involved Software Restriction Policies, of which there are none on the relevant pc's (thread is here: https://social.technet.microsoft.com/Forums/en-US/fb7eea4a-c2ac-4c84-a9e5-a6063b04f4a2/uac-prompts-not-working-in-windows-10-pro-1511-or-1703?forum=win10itprogeneral).

We have three pc's that have been upgraded to 1703, and all three display the same behavior. On any pc that is running 1607, the program works perfectly fine. Any idea what changed in 1703 that would cause this, and how to resolve it?

Thank you.

I've set up RRAS on the server using the Wizard for VPN only.

I've opened up port 1723 in the router pointing to the server. 1723 is also open in Windows Firewall.

Trying to connect a Windows 10 client and it attempts the connection then fails with "a connection to the remote could not be established so the port used for this connection was closed"

I can't find anything relevant googling this error.

Anybody had a similar experience & fixed it?

Is it possible to detect, programmatically (using C#), or through a utility or windows service, that Windows 10 is about to reboot (unscheduled)?

I am not necessarily talking about a reboot after Windows Update has installed an update, so for the purposes of this question assume that a legitimate system reboot is not a factor in this.  Just assume that Windows 10 is rebooting at random unannounced times.

I am interested in gathering as detailed information as I can about the last events that are happening **just before** my mouse pointer locks and the laptop reboots.

Related to this question - are there utilities that will absolutely prevent Windows10 from rebooting at random times WITHOUT some sort of permission from the end-user?  That way if I have some sort of warning or reboot prevention I can shutdown my running applications and save my work.

I am not concerned that my laptop wants to reboot.  It may have legitimate reasons to do so.  I just don't want it to be able to reboot (legitimate or otherwise) without checking with me first and letting me click "Yes" or "No". I want to impose this on top of the Windows 10 OS --  so that if it is possible to detect it I want to prevent it and have it alert me.

Good day to one and All,

I am in the process of upgrading my DCs to Server 2016,  at the moment I have a few legacy systems remaining as Server 2003 for a while longer,  will this cause any problems if all the DCs become 2016?

Many thanks

Eric

I have a system that's running Windows 10 Pro, 64bit.  Today an application by Xerox called Laser Logic stopped working.  Initially, I thought it was the application but digging deeper, I've found that I can't access even most commands via CLI from an account with administrator privileges.  
  • Tried to disable UAC, access denied - but if I go there via User Accounts, I can get in and make changes via the GUI, but the changes won't commit.  
  • Getting "Access is denied" when trying to run msiexec and even sfc from administrator account.
  • Getting same "Access is denied" error when trying to activate Administrator account.
  • Getting "Access Denied" at CLI when trying to run various commands.
  • LaserLogic will toss a disk space error, but I have 434GB free of 464GB, so disk space is OK.

The question is, how do I get permissions reset?

Looking at the security tab for the System32 folder I find the following settings:

  • All Application Packages and All restricted Application Packages has Read and execute, List folder contents, Read, this appears to be normal
  • Creator Owner, System, Administrators,  has only Special Permissions selected, this appears to be normal
  • Users has Read & Execute, List folder contents, and Read selected
  • TrustedInstaller has List folder contents selected

Optimizing Cloud Backup for Low Bandwidth

With cloud storage prices going down a growing number of SMBs start to use it for backup storage. Unfortunately, business data volume rarely fits the average Internet speed. This article provides an overview of main Internet speed challenges and reveals backup best practices.

Hi,
I have looked on various websites and forums but there doesn't appear to be a way to transfer recently opened files (or pinned) Office 2010 files from a computer using Windows 7 to a computer using Windows 10 and Office 2016.

In Windows 7, the recent files are stored in the registry.
HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Office\14.0\Word\File MRU
HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Office\14.0\Excel\File MRU

Is there a similar location in Windows 10? Then I could just add the keys into the registry using a script.
Alternatively, please let me know of any other way I can import the recent files (pinned) files from Office 2010 to Office 2016

I have setup one new Widows Server 2016 with RD Connection Broker, RD Web Access RD Licensing and RD Session Host which behaves as I expect and allow multiple simultaneous user logons

I have added another Widows Server 2016 as an additional RD Session Host using the Remote Desktop Server Overview Add RD Session Host servers to my deployment and is listed in the deployed servers

However this additional RD Session Host only allows one user to log on at a time (behaves just like a Windows 10 PC)

I can't find what is preventing multiple simultaneous user logons

What have I got wrong?

We work with a vendor that requires us to use one of their certificates.  When we install it on out core 2016 server, the certificate is not used because "The CA root certificate is not trusted because it is not in the trusted root certificates store"  (But it actually is.)

One solution we have is to go into the local computer policy object (Server is in a workgroup) go into computer configuration/windows settings/public key policies and set the certificate path validation settings.  Since this is core we use RSAT, open MMC remote into our server, open the local policy object for that machine, and the public key policies are missing from that local group policy.

Also we can't use the powershell local policy commands, because they are not installed, and when I attempt an install it is not an available module.

Hi
As above (we think).  Since migration from 7 to 10 Win OS, machines are not automatically connecting to either of the two wifi APs we have in GPO.
Current settings attached.
Ideas?

I was wondering if anyone else is seeing this behavior?  I have received zero response from Citrix.

When connecting to some Windows 10 computers using GoToAssist Expert, certain mouse clicks no longer work as expected. This seems to be limited to connecting to Windows 10 Creators Update (1703) machines.  It does not affect Windows 10 version 1607 machines.

Example 1: when trying to open an elevated command prompt (CMD), right clicking on "command prompt" does not give any choices such as "run as administrator".

Example 2: pressing the Windows key and starting "This PC" and then right clicking does not offer any choices such as properties.

There are many more.

The really interesting thing is that while remote computer is running the GoToAssist session, even directly accessing the machine through its attached keyboard and mouse will not provide the expected content from Windows 10. However, as soon as the GoToAssist session is closed, the same keystrokes and clicks on that machine yield the expected results from Windows. In other words, the open GoToAssist session causes Windows behavior to change both locally and remotely.

FYI, I am logged in locally and remotely as an administrator, and the GoToAssist program is running as a service.

Running GoToAssist Expert.  As far as I can tell, with the latest versions.

This is a follow-on to:
https://www.experts-exchange.com/questions/29016296/Temporary-Write-Permission-for-a-Drive.html

I believe I have everything working with one exception:

I believe that changing group membership for a user requires that the user log off and log back in.  Yet, when I change membership using THis PC / Manage / Users and Groups, it seems to work as confirmed by:
net user [user]

The situation that I've constructed and tested has the User always logged in and Group membership is modified.  But, if correct, this won't work without a new logon.  It may explain some issues I'm seeing.

One thought would be to execute a scheduled task with a .bat file action:
shutdown -r
And, I suppose one could use
control userpasswords2 on the system to have this user log in automatically - so the shutdown/restart would bring the user into a logged on state and with the new group membership.
It's not very elegant but it should work.

Are there better ideas?

Hi all,

I am copying large amounts of data from one harddrive to another on Windows 10 Pro 64 bit. I keep getting errors that some files cannot be copied because the file path is to long. Therefor I need to skip them, look them up through Windows Explorer manually and rename / copy / rename them to fix this.

I found out that the max path lengt is 260 characters by standard.
I want to resolve this, so I do not need to skip files in the copy process and fix it afterwards.

Few questions:

- Can I increase the path length (temporary)
- Is there a tool to fix this (i.e. a auto rename / short name tool)
- Other suggestions?

Thank you,
