We are trying to install a newer version of Acronis backup software on a client's Windows 10 computer.  The owner and/or permissions on the registry key have changed to the point that the install is failing because the software could not write to the registry key.  We have tried to take ownership of the registry key but receiving messages about invalid permissions.  

We have tried using Regedit and PowerShell but have not been able gain control of the registry key.  We found information about the SubInACL tool that appears to have the ability to correct this issue but also read this tool does not work with Windows 10.

We are not sure how the registry key got changed but seeking suggestions on how to regain access to the registry key so the software can be installed.  Any suggestions will be appreciated.

How can I configure windows Xp firewall to block all multicast traffic 224.*.*.* inbound and outbound ?
The windows firewall requires specifying a por ( not a port range)
I'm trying to switch my T480 laptop from a Samsung 2TB 2.5" SSD to a Samsung 2TB PCIe, NVMe drive.  It supports either and there's a cassette adapter that I've bought that goes in the 2.5 slot and a separate cable.  In theory the laptop support 2 channels of data, which would be a nice little bump.

I'm stuck on step one though of cloning my drive.  I've got several external NVMe adapters and they're recognized fine, but I've been trying to clone with both Acronis and Paragon without luck.  I know they're 2 entirely different types of drives, but I thought it might work.  I really don't want to start from raw Windows and work my way up.

Is there anyone that's done something like this?  Is there a different product that will clone cross drives like this?  Are these products fine, but I have to use some entirely different technique?

THis is a server 2008 r2 issue. The first problem was that *.exe files would not run. I got a message that there was no file associated with it. I did find a registry fix for that but there's also a problem running *.msc files. I get the same message. Does someone know what the registry fix for this is?

Thanks in advance for the assistance.


I need to search a text file for 'periods' and the text is a WordPad file.
I am a preacher and not a programmer.

The PHP code should open the file, then
search each line for the 'period' and then perform a carriage return until the file is searched and then close the file.

I already have PHP installed so the computer can run the PHP script.

I tried to use Acronis Universal Restore to restore a backup to  a different computer.   I keep getting the request to provide the following file:

PCI\VEN_8086&DEV_1C26&SUBSYS_04EE1028&REV_05 for Windows 7

I have the original Dell device drivers and utilities resource media, but it does not appear to be there.    Restore does not proceed without this file.   Where do I find it?

I do have a HP stream11 pro G4EE and I have installed our volume license copy of windows 10 on the laptop.
I would like to take and image of the laptop and push the same image to other HP stream11 pro G4EE laptops. I have taken the image of the laptop and now I want to create a bootable recovery media builder using a USB stick.
I installed “Paragon backup and recovery 16 free” on the laptop. When I click Home - Recovery Media Builder- Welcome to recovery media builder wizard-  and it gives 2 options
1)      advanced mode
2)      Use ADK/ WAIK
I choose the second option and – click next and recovery media format I choose USB flash drive
It took the default location of the WAIK.
C:\Program Files(x86)Windows Kits\10\   and  click next it says WAIK/ADK path does not seem to be valid. Please specify a valid WAIK/ADK path.
WAIK for this particular windows 10 build has been already installed on the laptop and not sure why it saying “WAIK/ADK path does not seem to be valid”
Please help what could be the problem and suggest if these is any other way of taking and image and install to other similar laptops.

Thanks in advance

Hi Experts

Could you point a Windows Server version that could be installed at this hardware?

Win7 doesn't have a good performance on my particular case.

Thanks in advance!
In Win 7 & Win 2008 R2, I used to see/use the  Bare Metal backup which I
can restore everything in the event the entire OS or filesystem got corrupted.

Where can I find it in Win10 (or Win2016) : can't seem to locate it:
any screen shots will be appreciated.

if the feature is deprecated (think I saw somewhere that start Win10 Ver1709,
it'll be deprecated??) appreciated any portable freeware that
could do bare metal backups for Win10.

Hello, I am in the process of implementing Acronis Snap Deploy in my environment and am wondering what other experts have done for version control of their master/base images?
1) How do I completely uninstall/delete Acronis true image 2019 from macOS High Sierra - then reinstall  Acronis true image 2019 pointing to new drives?

2) My goal is to delete all backups from Acronis True Image and rebuild to backup to new attached/online drives.

I will settle for 1) if 2) is not feasible.

We have given an order to a small Client OEM System Builder to create 25 Clients with the same Image. They are new and have less experience.
I knew it is possible to create such an Image for Windows 7 as I worked for an OEM System Builder. Is it still possible to do this with a Windows 10 Build 1809 OEM? What we need is just to get a new SID and change the Computer name after each restore.

Thanks for helping me
