I am trying to upgrade a Windows 7 machine to Windows 10.  The Windows 7 machine is running on Server 2008 R2 SP1 Hyper-V.  The upgrade is failing.  Is there something I need to do to the Hyper-V machine to allow the upgrade to succeed?

I am using a Windows 7 computer...Intel i7 processor and everything is working well except windows media player will not start.
Also, when I try to install itunes as a supplementary music/media player I get the following error message:
"errors occurred during installation before iTunes could be configured.  to complete the installation run the installer again".
Any ideas what may have caused this problem and what should I be doing to fix the problem?  I do not want to reinstall Windows as it is far too much work and it is very time consuming.
thanks,

I'm having an odd problem. I have a LAN with a couple of Windows 7 hosts and several Linux Slackware hosts. One Linux host in particular, hostname 'netbook' is giving me connection problems. From other Linux hosts on the LAN I can ssh to 'netbook' w/o problem and can also connection to netbook port 5900. I can not connect to this host on these ports from my Windows 7 workstation using putty, nor can I telnet from Windows 7:
Microsoft Windows [Version 6.1.7601]
Copyright (c) 2009 Microsoft Corporation.  All rights reserved.

C:\Users\mfoley>telnet 192.168.0.22 22
Connecting To 192.168.0.22...Could not open connection to the host, on port 22: Connect failed

C:\Users\mfoley>telnet 192.168.0.22 5900
Connecting To 192.168.0.22...Could not open connection to the host, on port 5900: Connect failed

Open in new window

Yet I can putty to all other Linux hosts on this LAN -- just not 'netbook'.

I can't figure out why and I don't know where to look for logs or other information on the problem.

Hi,
I have setup 2 new cams and when I sent a test email it comes not on top of my emails but in the list 12 hours behind.
Like if I send one at 2017-06-28 09:30am it will show in my outlook as 2017-06-27 21:07...

We do see the good time IN the email... it's just on the listing that it shows wrong.

I'm on Windows 7, Outlook 2010.
I sent a test to my gmail and it was fine.
And more I sent one to another employee on the same domain and it was fine... So looks like just my computer.
Both of us have the same Regional Settings...
Can't see where to look now...

Windows 7 on Lenovo T420

Computer has suddenly refused to boot up windows 7. Just before you get to the 'welcome' sequence, the system fails with a blue screen and it displays the following message:

STOP: c0000139 {Entry Point Not Found}
The procedure entry point e could not be located in the dynamic link library CSRSRV.dll

I can not boot to safe mode.

What I tried:

1) all windows standard automatic repair functions under F8 and the "Repair Your Computer"-Option
= did not work

2) ran "sfc /scannow /offbootdir=d:\ /offwindir=d:\Windows" from recovery console
= sfc "found corrupt files but was unable to fix some of them", so I wanted to check the CBS.log for more information but I cannot find it on any partition (should be in windir\Logs\CBS\CBS.log)

3) ran "sfc /verifyfile=d:\windows\system32\csrsrv.dll /offbootdir=d:\ /offwindir=d:\Windows" from recovery console
= sfc did not find any integrity violations

4) overwrote the file with the same file from the recovery partition of the notebook
= got another error (imho probably older version of the file): The procedure entry point CsrIsClientSandboxed could not be located in the dynamic link library CSRSRV.dll

5) overwrote the file with a downloaded copy from dlldump.com
= got same error as with original file

6) overwrote the file with the same file from another Windows 7 machine
= got same error as with original file



Any other ideas to repair windows without to reinstall the whole …

I am currently looking for a way to detect if the "Pause Printing" option in the "See What's Printing" window is checked in Windows.

I've searched high and low, and looked into the Win32 native printing API (winspool) to see if there was such a detection available, but to no avail.

Is there anyone who has experience with a successful implementation of this detection?

I'm looking for a solution in either C/C++, or C#.

I just installed iTunes on my windows 7 pc and I'd like to copy a bunch of my MP3 files (some are podcasts, some are music MP3's) to my iPhone 6s. I don't want to copy ALL of my MP3's just some.
Can someone recommend a YouTube video or instructions.  the UI of iTunes is not really intuitive for what I'm trying to do.  
Or maybe I'm just not getting the logic of it.

I have seen threads where initializing a disk will not lose the data, but I want to have some concrete information backing this statement up.  I was given a HDD from one of our clients for a litigation and I need to access the data.

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 use a Windows 7 Pro ISO which has been built with updates all the way up to May 2016 so I can roll updates out all together which saved a lot of time when rebuilding PCs.

There is one machine where the BIOS simply ignores the fact that there is a bootable disc inserted. Other discs work, even a base Windows 7 Pro SP1 ISO works, but the drivers on the disc aren't compatible with the board or USBs so the keyboard and mouse do not work. Windows 10 discs are also seen but Windows 7 Pro is needed in this case. I've checked BIOS settings and even disabled boot from HDD and NIC and nothing seems to have worked.

Good day all,

I have faced this issue several times before in several different environments. Almost everyone of them was resolved by setting the "Minimum Password Age" to "0". However, I am currently experiencing this in one of our Domains and have already spent around 8-10 hours troubleshooting with no resolution in sight. So, I am humbly reaching out to the community for any ideas at all.

Environment as follows: Windows 2012R2 Forest & Domain functional level, x3 Windows 2012R2 DCs with one of them at a remote site. x2 DCs in the main data center. there are 3 sites in all. Clients are Windows 7 Professional with all current patches.

The Default Domain Policy contains the settings for password policy. They are as follows:
Password Policy
As can be seen, Minimum Password age is set to 0. However no matter how many times we have tried, both with test and live user accounts, the users cannot change their passwords and the reason given is that the password does not meet the requirements. Except that they very much do. I have tested replication, ran comprehensive DC Diag with no abnormal results. I have tried this from different workstations and even different types of workstation hardware. I can successfully reset user passwords from ADUC and if I select "User Must Change Password", they are able to. The only thing I have been able to spot that looks out of sorts is that RSoP on the workstation completes while complaining about there being no RSoP for the …

Hi.

One of the computers in our domain started experiencing weird issues last week. We noticed it on the 23rd of June, that for some reason Outlook 2010 Search results weren't complete - it didn't include any emails from the 20th of June onwards.

So I rebuilt the index but it's still not good enough.

Here's an example:
At the top of the image, you can see an email from Hayley from the 22nd of June
At the bottom you can see I've searched Inbox by her name, loads of results come up, but not the one from 22/06.

I've just checked Indexing status from Search Tools and it's showing 0 remaining.

A bit of additional info: It's an IMAP account with an approx size of 15GB, and it's the only email account on that PC.

Any help and ideas would be more than welcome.

Thanks,

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,
