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.

Greetings:

I recently performed a clean install of Windows 10 Pro on my desktop and included IIS version 10.

I'm looking for the steps to allow other computers on my network to view pages on my local website and client websites under development. I believe this is a security issue but I'm not sure.

Any assistance is most appreciated.


Much thanks,

TL;DR: Microsoft Updates are failing with 0x8024002e using WSUS or straight from Microsoft. We run Windows 10, and it is affecting most of our 150 workstations.
-----------------------------------------------
We have been running (with spotty success) a WSUS server for several years, and it periodically blows up. Fine. This most recent time I set a new one up from scratch, synced and let the GPO do its thing. At some point in time, I'm not sure exactly which Patch Tuesday, people got  0x8024002e error across the board. It wouldn't even try on the workstation, if you hit "Update" it would immediately return the error.

So, I changed the GPO to let people download MS Updates from MS, and eliminated WSUS. Well, people get a list of waiting updates, but they are basically failing with the same error.

I'm familiar with Update blowouts, and all the byzantine steps you're supposed to take to rectify it, and most of the time it fails and I've wasted 45 minutes going through all the various suggestions online...which usually link back to the same two or three solutions (stop the services, rename SoftwareDistribution and catroot2, pray, reset security contexts, blah blah blah).  0x8024002e seems to be a pretty nebulous error. My feeling is WSUS corrupted the updates somehow, and now they can't get the updates from MS either.

So, not only have the solutions really not worked, but even if that were a solution, it would take roughly a week to do that on every …

Just downloaded the Xendesktop and I'm going through the installation on my newly spun up Windows Server 2016 core OS.  I'm getting an error always on IIS during the xendesktop setup.  Keeps saying "'dism' component failed to install with error 0x00000032." see screen shot.  IIS is installed on the 2016 server.  

Any clues on how to move forward?

Hello,
I'm not familiar with the Windows 2016 licensing system.
I ask myself the following question. I am offered a promotional offer with a minimum of 16 licenses to buy.
If I get 16 Windows 2016 Server Datacenter licenses, it may cover 32 cores, if I understand correctly. These 32 cores can be distributed on 2 servers? for example: 2 servers bi-processors of 8 cores?
There is no limitation on the number of virtual machines (VmWare in my case), on each of the two servers. Is it correct?
Thank you for your answers.

Although 'Server Manager' indicates that Remote Management and Remote Desktop are both 'enabled', I get the standard:
   Remote Desktop can't connect to the remote computer for one of these reasons:
      1) Remote access to the server is not enabled
      2) The remote computer is turned off  (nope... it's on)
      3) The remote computer is not available on the network (I can see it listed along with the other servers under network)

I can RDP from this workstation to any of the other servers.... just not the new Server Standard 2016.    Any suggestions?

When I set a GPO to set Lock Screen on Win10 1703 Ent PC's it show the image that has been applied in SETTINGS > LOCK SCREEN but does not actually change the lock screen.  This problem does not occur on 1511 or 1607 PC's. I have applied the latest CU that was supposed to fix the issue but it does not seem to be fixed.

Hi,

I'm doing an upgrade to SCCM 1702 from 1606 soon.

Would you guys also update the Windows 10 ADK to the latest version (1703) or leave it for what it is?
And why?

Currently I have Windows 10 ADK 1607 installed.

I'm just looking for tips.
I know that ADK can be tricky. It was never without bugs. Now there are some bugs as well with this version.

But I was thinking, now that I'm upgrading the environment I could upgrade the ADK as well as that would upgrade my boot images as well.

I am planning to deploy Windows 10 Creators Update soon.
Can that one be deployed with Windows 10 ADK 1607 as well?

Hello Experts
I just installed the express Edition of visual studio 2015 on my laptop

and when opening a very small project (less 100 kb) it says

"  you cannot open this project with your express edition of visual studio for windows 10. this edition only supports development on universal windows platforms app  "

I was used to install express editions 2012, 2013... for my personal use in my laptop... .now my little projects cannot be opened...

What is the best solution ? Download again express 2013 and stay there ??

First question... can someone confirm that the Media Creation Tool is for all license types of Windows 10 (Retail, OEM and Volume)?

Second question... If I get a Dell in the door with Windows 10 Professional why can't I use the above Media Creation Tool to wipe out what is on there and re-install from scratch? Why is that illegal?

Is there a utility that will allow me to expand the OS partition on my new Server 2016?   The power went out while configuring the server just 'out of the box' and I ended up with 50Gb partition for the OS.   I had wanted 150Gb.   When I 'shrank' the size of the DATA drive D, it automatically placed the unallocated space AFTER the D: drive.   From what I can tell, Server 2016 doesn't let you allocate the unallocated anywhere BEFORE that Drive.

I push Dell. Dell doesn't supply Windows 10 media like they did with Windows 7. They give you the product key in the BIOS of the computer then you download the "Retail" ISO from Microsoft and install it. Or at least that is the way I have been doing to.

   So where does OEM stand with respect to Windows 10?

Hi All,
I have a user account in one user OU which has blocked inheritance in Group Policy. The purpose of this account is to allow visitors to login but there it is quite restricted so they cannot do any damage. We are using Windows 10 x64 Enterprise and for some reason when this user account logs into a PC they receive a UAC message relating to the registry editor. I have tried applying a group policy to disable UAC but this does not work. I guess there is a process running in the background which is trying to start the registry editor but something is preventing this from running. We do set the proxy settings via group policy preferences using registry settings so maybe the message is being flagged because of this process.
Other user accounts in other OUs do not show this message so I am not sure what is causing this.
Thanks for your assistance.

I have a management server that runs on Win2016 with among other applications, SpiceWorks and Axis Camera Station installed.
The issue is that both these applications consume a lot of CPU, is it possible to limit how much CPU these applications can use?

I upgraded a test machine from Windows 10 Enterprise 2015 LTSB to the 2016 release. On the surface everything looks like it took fine, except it seems to have removed the local "Administrator" account from the local administrators group. It's not there and I can't add it back. So I can log on but I can't do anything. Access denied all over the place. Can't create a new local user, can't add to domain, can't run Powershell commands, can't edit registry, can't copy/paste from a thumb drive to C:, can't modify permissions anywhere...etc. I'm at a loss. Anyone have any ideas? Open to anything, but the popular Google answers to local administrator issues have all not worked.

Hello,

Imagine 3 x Windows Server 2016 and a bunch of Windows 7 PC's all joined together on a domain.

One of the Server VM's is for a specific piece of software.   The vendor of this software will need remote access to this server to install, configure and support the piece of software.

The simply way would be to give the domain administrator account, but I'm not comfortable with that.  There is no good reason to give this specific vendor complete access.

How can I create a login for this vendor that would give them "local admin" rights to this server only ?



Thanks

Hi,
A Surface Pro 4 does not allow system changes to be made, even when logged on as domain administrator.
I need to re-set this Surface pro and start again.
I do not have a recovery key.
Can anyone please advise on how to do a hard re-set and start again with the device?

THank you in advance for help.

Hi,

We just received the latest update for Windows 10 (Version 1703).  
Hmm it looks like MS has given this update a special name "The Windows 10 Creators Update".
I guess "Creators" means "creates problems" ;-)

Since receiving this update, our really old database program (Paradox for Windows 8.0) no longer runs.  Actually it appears very briefly (for a fraction of a second) but then closes with no error message.

Obviously some new security measure with the latest Windows update is blocking it.  A few days ago it was working perfectly well.

The computer is running Windows 10 Pro
Office 2013 click to run is installed.

When Outlook is starting, the white dots stop flowing across the blue box and a message : Microsoft Outlook has stopped working
A problem caused the program to stop working correctly.  Windows will close the program and notify you if a solution is available.

The mail utility will not start in control panel.  Outlook will start in safe mode [outlook.exe /safe]

I have gone to the add remove section of the control panel and chose change.  I then chose the first repair option and it failed.  I chose the second repair option and it gave a something went wrong message and had permission issues.
I followed the instruction in the link below and re installed Office 2013 from the CD

https://support.office.com/en-us/article/Manually-uninstall-Office-4e2904ea-25c8-4544-99ee-17696bb3027b?ui=en-US&rs=en-US&ad=US 

The Office re-installed, and I was able to install a few email addresses [gmail, sympatico, ].  I was able to send some email, and then added three outlook.com accounts.  This is when the above problem started.  I was able to start outlook in safe mode and remove the outlook.com email accounts, but I cannot access Mail from within the control panel
