Microsoft Windows XP is the sixth release of the NT series of operating systems, and was the first to be marketed in a variety of editions: XP Home and XP Professional, designed for business and power users. The advanced features in XP Professional are generally disabled in Home Edition, but are there and can be activated. There were two 64-bit editions, an embedded edition and a tablet edition.

In our company, we have a mixture of Windows 10 Pro and Windows XP Professional installations joining a workgroup, NOT domain.

Usually the sharing folder between computers is working well, except of some rare cases, were a "turn on discovery" or "turn off pasword protection" is needed after some updates on Windows 10.

Recently a problem appears which i believe is related to 1803 version.

The machines that upgraded to 1803 version although they can browse every machine on network, they cannot acces them by clicking on them with message "Windows cannot access \\xxxx". Strangely they can access them by typing \\xxxx in the address bar of file explorer.

Does anyone knows where to look at for more information?

Thanks in advance

I am working on a large VB6 project.  I am using Windows XP  as the development environment.  For various reasons, I moved had to a new Windows XP machine.  I have everything set up the same as the old machine (Win-XP SP3, VB6 SP-6 etc).  My program needs connects to an SQL database.  I have all the same references selected as on the old machine, however for some reason my connection to the Microsoft ActiveX Data Objects Recordset 2.8 Library isn't "connected".  I get a debug error the first time I use ADODB as in:
Set rsTable as ADODB.Recordset

Open in new window

There is no intellisense associated with ADODB.  I have the Microsoft ActiveX Data Objects Recordset 2.8 Library selected in the References.  I have reinstalled the MDAC28SDK.  I have also re-registered the MSADOR15.DLL file.

The program will run on the machine, connect to the SQL etc fine when run from the .EXE, but won't run in the development environment.

Anyone have any ideas about this?
thanks in advance

Hi.
This is a strange scenario for a question like this.
I have a 32 bit windows XP machine that is running a "dos" program for accounts payable. (we are in the process of replacing).
This computer does not access outside internet.
This program extracts information for checks we have written for a positive pay file. It's a Fixed Format Text file.
I have another "dos" program that uses a database to pull that data in. Then output it back to text in the format our bank needs it in.
Again, Fixed format. Put's it in a shared folder she has access to from another computer.

Then, we have a windows 7 32 bit machine that DOES access the internet, and log on to the bank, and where it says "Browse" we go the shard folder to get the file (ie: \\10.0.0.25\RECON\POSIPAY.TXT).
It then uploads and processes and everything is fine.

Today we swapped the windows 7 machine for a 64 bit windows 10 machine.
Went to do the same thing but when we upload the file, it comes back from the bank as an invalid format.
We re-run the Dos Programs and try again. Same thing.

We fire up the windows 7 machine, and it works perfectly.
This is strictly just an ASCII text file. No funny business. Nothing fancy.

Does a 64 bit Winsows 10 machine look at ASCII Text files different  than a 32 bit ASCII text file?
Do I need to add line feed characters? End of File Character?

Let me know your thoughts. Thanks in advance.

Hi
Wondering if there is a way to find out on which page/record users stopped viewing a report?
So if they opened a report with 100 records (each record on a page), and closed at page 60, we can save that info somewhere and open the report next time starting from there...
Thanks

Has anyone used Acronis Server Backup 12.5 (or any server backup) to a AWS S3 cloud storage? Does AWS accept FTP or SFTP connections to S3 Storage?
It seems their cloud storage is priced well. $276/yr for a TB. Any comments to cloud storage in general for backups?

We are deploying Windows 10 workstations using True Image.  I want to set browser default to IE, and PDF default to adobe.  
The 2 methods I researched are below.  In your opinion, should I build the defaults into the image, or just use GPO?  
Also,  if I choose to build the defaults into the image, will the OSD method work with Acronis True Image?  Or will I have to implement this a different way?

Saw a youtube link (which I've now misplaced) that Bluestack software could
replace VCE exam dumps player:
https://www.bluestacks.com/download.html?utm_campaign=homepage-dl-button#download

I've installed it on my Windows but doesn't seem to find any option that could play it.
Anyone knows?  Or any other freeware player to play VCE dumps on Windows (not
for Android)?

I have a client who runs a franchise and the software provided by the franchise only works on Windows XP. At the begining of the year we replaced their workstations with Windows 10 PC's running virtual VM ware with windows XP which is running fine. The file server is running windows 7.

As it is now time to change the file server we relaced it with a Windows 10 Maching.

The problem now is the Windows XP machines wont find or map a network drive to the new Windows 10 maching although I can ping it from anvirtual XP maching.

All firewalls are disabled and in network and sharing centre network discovery is enabled.

Hi Experts,

Each year I have data in an Excel 2007 spreadsheet which I want to enter into forms on several webpages for filing tax.  No logging in is required.
The solution will need to give me the opportunity to manually check the entries made on each page before submitting it (but if I find a problem I'm willing to abort, fix it, and restart if needed).

This is the first webpage that needs to be submitted:

I don’t think I’ll bother posting my input data (the spreadsheet) because its layout is flexible and I don’t think we need to get into that level of detail.  I am a programmer, but I’m wanting ideas on what tools to use, and the basics of reading the data from the spreadsheet and transferring it to the webpage.  Maybe a bit of code to get started would be helpful.

Would AutoIt be a good choice for this?  If so, should I basically follow this tutorial from 2016, installing the extra bits of software recommended in it?  If so, how would I read the data from the spreadsheet?
Or would iMacros but a good choice?  I would have thought it wouldn't.

Environment & limitations:
-      Windows XP (yes, all the latest technology).
-      Firefox 52 ESR.
-      Can’t use IE (which is version 8 and can't be upgraded in XP) because the webpage doesn’t seem to support it.
-      I’m only interested in free options.

Thanks.

Hi Experts,

I have a .bat file that is used to backup data.  I want to include all folders / files on a drive but exclude one folder.  I can't seem to get it to do the exclusion.

Here is the WinZip Command Line.

"C:\Program Files\WINZIP\WZZIP.EXE"  -xd\\PL1\PL1-G-Data\Photos\*.*   "Z:\PATLAPTOP1\PL1-G-Data\%date%\PL1-G PatData All.ZIP" "\\PL1\PL1-G-PatData\*.*"  -r -p

Explanation
- Job is run on the PC where the 'Z:' Drive is located.
- Drive to be zipped is on PC \\PL1.
-  The Drive to be zipped is PL1-G-PatData.
- Folder (with sub folders) that needs to be excluded is PL1-G-Data\Photos

What needs to be done to get it exclude the PL1-G-Data\Photos folder.  Right now there are no errors but it is including the Photos folder?

Note: If using an 'Exclusion Parameter File' is a better way them I ok with it.

Thanks,
Bob C.

Cloud Class® Course: SQL Server Core 2016

This course will introduce you to SQL Server Core 2016, as well as teach you about SSMS, data tools, installation, server configuration, using Management Studio, and writing and executing queries.

In using the Folder Redirection policy to redirect Documents on a Windows XP computer, the redirection is working properly and no files are populating in the CSC folder after the policy runs which is what is wanted.  The problem is that under C:\Documents and Settings\Domain Profile\My Documents data is showing up there from the user account's server Redirection folder.  This XP machine has a small hard drive (60 GB) and immediately will fill up causing the machine to not work.  
On the AD server looking at the Folder Redirection policy folder on GPMC.MSC and going to the properties of the documents. Under Target, the setting is Basic, Redirect Everyone's folder to the same locale.  Under Settings, Create a folder fgor each under the root path is selected with Grant the user exclusive rights to Docs and Move the contents of the Documents to the new location both checked.  Apply redirection policy to Win 2000, etc. is not selected.
Under Policy Removal -- Leave the folder in the new location when policy is removed is selected and Redirect the folder back to the local user profile location when the policy is removed is not selected.  How do you stop the server document Redirection data from going back to the local machine's local profile under C:\Documents and Settings\Domain Profile\My Documents and filling this small XP machine's hard drive.

Is there an upgrade path from Windows XP to 10 pro?  Or it is even possible?  
If possible, are all the applications need to be reinstalled?  Now its complaining about the space on my old desktop.  But even if I clear a space - will it install?

Please advice.  Thank you.

Are there any recovery tools for things like system file check, bootrec, etc. that can be run against offline system drives?  Like for example, rather than going through working on a PC that's having problems that can be fixed by the tools I mentioned, occasionally I'd like the option of pulling the system drive, connecting it to a working PC running Windows 10 and run a program that can do some basic repair.  I've found I've often had to repeatedly going back to a PC I'm trying to perform repairs on and babysitting them during a recovery process.  I'd rather be able to pull the hard drive and perform these basic functions from a repair workstation.  Ideally I'd like something that can specify restore points to go back to and works with as many versions of Windows as possible.  I realize for each version I'd have to have a boot disc of that version available, but that wouldn't be a problem.
