I've spent about 5 hours trying to register a COM DLL in VB.NET.

This is admittedly a new machine for me. Regsvr32 says it can't find the binary.

See the attached snapshot.

I wonder if there might be some special level of security that is preventing me from doing the registration function. I've been thru the Command Prompt with Administrator rights.

Hi I have a network that is cat5 connections that has good fast internet and RDP into a cloud based windows 2008 R2 server. It make connection logs in ok then while you are working it times out and goes through the reconnect process 1of what ever until it connects again. Some times it won't reconnect but most of the time it does. You can ping the ip of the server and it does not time out. Does anyone have any ideas?

We have many Win7 workstations that were originally imaged from an sysprep image using a MS Volume license.  Since all of are workstations were purchased with WIN7 and have the OEM license keys, we did not renew our Volume licenses.  Now after imaging a workstation it this image, we are unable to activate it using the old MS Volume license and if we try to reenter the OEM license key from the sticker on the stations, we get an invalid key.
Does any one have a solution on how we can activate windows on these stations.  I would hate to have to create new images and reimage several thousand computers at our 16 campuses in order to activate Windows.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Hi

A Windows 7 user contacted me because the network shorcuts that are placed on her desktop regularly disappear.

Could the cause be that the server, to which point this shortcuts, is regularly restarted ?

thanks

Hi,

We've got multiple Windows 7 PCs across multiple un-related domains that are getting stuck at 'Starting Windows', and will refuse to reach the login screen.

After leaving these PCs around 30-40 minutes at 'starting Windows', the PCs will go into recovery/restore point mode and will prompt for action to be taken. If you try to initiate system restore, or a repair, both will fail.

You can boot into safe mode without issue, but if you open msconfig and modify the boot i.e. only loading base services etc. you will still get stuck on 'starting Windows' on the next boot.

If you boot into 'last known good configuration', you will be able to use the computer as per usual, but upon rebooting it, you will get stuck on the 'starting Windows' screen.

We have run multiple virus, malware, adware, and system scans, all saying everything looks fine.

SFC/scannow and chkdisk also report back that everything is fine.

I have installed a brand new Server 2016, printers are being deployed by GPO. The first weeks everything was working fine until users reported that their printer keeps asking to install the driver while they are trying to print.

Currently the issue is on Windows 7 64 bit machines. The printer is a HP Enterprise M553.

I need to reinstall Windows 7 Professional on a Dell workstation.  I was performing my initial set up, and I messed up my password, had to step away from it, and now I can't proceed.  I am at the point where it is requesting that I have to load the drivers, but I'm stumped.  Where do I get the drivers from?  What's next?  I only have a hardware warranty, so Dell is not very helpful.

I'm told that there is a limit to the number of concurrent mapped drives to a shared storage device that is connected to a Windows 7 workstation.  I need at least 35 connections to this storage device.  If there's no way to map the 35 connections to the shared external device that is currently connected to the Windows 7 workstation (I believe the limit is 10) , will upgrading to Windows 10 allow me to have 35 users map to the external storage device concurrently?

Hi

We have a windows 2012 application server in our network and have a shared drive called "G" and normally we install applications on this drive and this drive gets mapped for our users.

Now I have been given an application and when installing this application on this Windows 2012 server and it defaults to
C:\Program Files (x86)\Pearson\AdministratorDashboard
I wanted to change the default path to “G” drive and it doesn’t allow to change the path and says cannot change the path.

So installed this application on the default path.Now the shortcut for this program has be installed on the servers desktop. When I execute the shortcut the program opens successfully.
Only the exam officer needs access to this application .Is there a way to create this shortcut on windows 7 PC for  point to this server.

Any help will be great.
Thanks

While checking out the user's Windows 7 Pro laptop, I checked off the Definition Update for Microsoft Security Essentials.  When I started the update after the selection, I saw a message on the Windows Update that Windows 10 was being downloaded.

This person doesn't need Windows 10.  

I don't know why this appeared.  How can I block it?
For now, I've changed the setting to Download but let me choose whether to install them.

I would prefer automatic installation of important updates, but I don't want Windows 10 to auto-install.

Thanks.

Hi, I am wondering about the ability to customize a window size but have it apply to ONLY that window like I used to do in Windows 7 and have it show up in that size every time I call it up.  Windows 10 doesn't seem to allow me to do that.  Am I overlooking something?
Thanks

While attempting to create the Veeam Recovery Media on Windows 7 computers I receive the message shown in the screenshot "Windows Recovery Environment (WnRE) component is missing. Specify the location of Microsoft Windows 7 Professional x64 installation files (you may need to insert your Windows installation media). Alternatively, download and install Windows ADK.

Since I no longer have the Windows 7 installation media, what URL addresses can I use to download and install Windows ADK?

What would keep me from going back to windows 7 from windows 10 Home? I try to load it but it fails and windows 10 Home comes back up? Does this have anything to do with one drive? Should I re-create the partition and wipe it to then try to load windows 7 pro?
