VIDEO: THE CONCERTO CLOUD FOR HEALTHCARE

Modern healthcare requires a modern cloud. View this brief video to understand how the Concerto Cloud for Healthcare can help your organization.

Hi,
I need to allow an user to access remotely to his Windows 10 workstation.
Workstation is joined on 2008 active directory domain.
Remote Desktop service is enable on workstation (I mean: 3389/TCP port is open, and DOMAIN\user is alreay allowed to access).
"user" is alreay member of "remote desktop user".
When he try access, he get "To log on to this computer, you must be granted the Allow log on through the Terminal (or Remote Desktop) Services right...."

I definitely not understand that.. I think this should be very straightforward (what is the meaning of "remote desktop user", if members still NOT have access )?

Thank you very much

This is a Windows 10 installation where it appears an update went bad. Tried to restore from the only restore point the day of the failure but the system restore failed because it couldn't write the registry. Tried bootrec /fixmbr, restore previous build fails.  ''[['Is the only option to reload the OS?

I'm trying to copy a lot of data from one of our servers to an external hard drive. I've used Robocopy in the past but I can't seem to get it to work for this. I started with the command below but when I run the batch file, it just sits there with the command prompt open. I thought maybe it was the log command at the end so I took that off but it still doesn't run correctly. I eventually took everything off after the destination and it still doesn't work. What am I missing?


robocopy "\\server\VOL1\Data\folder"  "E:\SourceData\Microsoft PDF Documents" *.* /MIR /COPYALL /R:1 /W:1 /MT:50 >> C:\RoboCopy\roboaccountingarchiveslog.txt

I have recently created a quotation tool which opens up into outlook when the quote is built as a screenshot to send to a customer. I have tested it on my system and it works perfectly, yet I have sent it to a colleague who uses windows 10 (im on 8) and Office 2016 (im on 2013) and it does not work. It just says the location inst available. Please can someone help me with this. I have attached the excel document created.

The following update fails to install (on a Server 2016 VM running Exchange 2016):

Security Update For Exchange Server 2016 CU6 (KB4036108)
https://support.microsoft.com/en-gb/help/4036108/description-of-the-security-update-for-microsoft-exchange-september-12

The application and system logs show nothing.  If I run the patch manually it just reports that installation "ended prematurely because of an error".

How can I troubleshoot this update installation?  Is there a log file somewhere?

Thanks in advance for any assistance

I'm setting up a Win 10 PC that will run Windows media player with different media sources (audio) at different times during the day. Have found two ways to do this -
One is to have wmplayer stop any running instances when starting a new task (under  the task settings).
The other way is to run two actions:  first a taskkill /IM wmplayer.exe and then wmplayer /Playlist mylist.

Using taskkill seems more "brutal", but I don't have any experienc when it comes to terminating applications this way..  
Any comments?

Hi,

I am looking for a powershell script to extract NTFS & Share folder permissions for a give set of folders from a Windows server 2012. Ideally it should be extracted to a excel/csv file - one file for NTFS, another for Share folders.

Let me know if you have any script readily available?

Using VB6 and stepping through a file sequentially that has been opened for random access I am getting bad record length errors.

However if I close the file then reopen it and start reading the records from 1 before the one that gave the error then it continues sometimes to the end of the file without error or sometimes it will error later with another bad record length error.

I have been using the same code without error on the same files for 20 years.
These errors have only started since Windows 7,8,10.
What is causing the problem?
It is happening on a number of different files with different record lengths.

Hi Experts,

I realized that lately my pc is reacting very slow to my keystrokes, especially when using the mouse to move objects in Access forms, any idea what can be the reason?

I checked task manager and CPU usage is low, and RAM is not to high either..

PS. Windows 7 Pro, NO VIRUS as per AVG..

Thanks in advance.

Here's a simple security tip: lock your computer when you're away! An unlocked work station leaves you ridiculously vulnerable and it's a simple thing to avoid.  Just get in the habit of hitting Ctrl-Alt-Del and choosing Lock every time you get up (for Windows anyway, adapt as needed for your specific OS choice).

You wouldn't leave your front door wide open when you're not at home, right? Same principle here :-)

IT just installed Microsoft Word 2016 on my computer, so now I have both Word 2013 and Word 2016.  When I double click on a DOCX from within Windows Explorer it launches 2016 even though I:

Used Control Panel->Default Programs->Associate a file type or protocol with a program:

I associated both DOC and DOCX files with "C:\Program Files (x86)\Microsoft Office\Office15\WINWORD.EXE" which is Word 2013.

Any ideas on how to set a previous version of Word as the default?

Thanks in advance,

I have about 8-10 computers out in the manufacturing area. Most are not assigned to a specific user. So they are sort of kiosks that any employee can walk up to and use. There are a few different things users could do with the computer, and the conflict between these tasks has me confused on how to best set them up.

First off, we have a domain with Microsoft active directory. Every computer and user is on the domain.

One main use of the computer is the ERP system. In the factory, it uses a walk-up kiosk interface. The user enters their employee number and logs on/off a job, accesses data, or whatever. When they are done, the next person keys in their ID and does what they need. The ERP software automatically logs in based on the windows account logged in, and each account name must be different. So the idea was you'd log into Windows using "Kiosk 1", "Kiosk 2", etc. Each of those accounts would be set up as a service account on the domain.

However, some users also need access to network folders. They will be running tests, diagnostics, and such and will need to save data on network locations. Or they will need to access data on the network to do their job. My network folders are locked down with security groups and permissions. So I have concerns about making a walk-up kiosk have access to folders on the network.

So I'm trying to find a way to satisfy both needs on the same computer. Making users "switch users" between the kiosk account and their own was my first …

I did a fresh install of Windows 10 Pro 64-bit on my Lenovo T460S laptop. I also have a Logitech K800 wireless keyboard and a M705 wireless mouse, both using a single Logitech Unifying Receiver.

Before I could even install the Logitech SetPoint software, I was getting a pop-up window by the task tray saying there was Logitech solar software to be installed. Looking in the Win 10 settings, I see my mouse and keyboard listed, but I also see a Logitech K750 and a M505 listed. I don't have either of those devices. If I remove the device, they are back again shortly or after a restart. Every time I log into Windows, I get the pop up wanting me to install the solar software.

Note 1: I installed Logitech SetPoint software and the extra mouse and keyboard are listed there too, but don't kill popup.

Note 2: I let the popup install the software, which was Logitech's solar keyboard software, and it said there was no solar keyboard detected.

What the hey!? Before rebuilding my laptop, I didn't have this issue and I'm using the same hardware.

Hi,

I struggling with this issue. I wanted to use the connector provided by Windows which can be download via http://servername/connect
However, it is not compatible with this new version of MacOSX.

Does anyone have experience with setting up vpn connection on a new OSX Mac with Server 2012 Essentials?

I have a form bound to a Query. One field in the query is pdfstring, the contents of this Field  is a string of the file location of a pdf related to the record. This is an example

file:///\scanner\Inv\600594.PDF
file:///\scanner\Inv\602135.PDF


scanner is a windows share

In my Web Browser Control Form, the Control Source is: pdfstring

When I view the form, the first image comes up as fast as one could hope for.

The second and all subsequent images come up very slowly as I move from record to record.

Can someone explain this behavior to me?
