We have an old laptop that has Windows 7 and some very specific software that our finance dept uses. We no longer have access to this software that was created by company that is no longer in business. Users typically remote into this machine to run this software that requires SOAP UI Utilities and Office 2003 to work. We would like to Clone this PC unto another similar PC so more than person can access this software and perform the same function. All that being said, can we close the hard drive of that laptop unto another laptop (Does it have to be the same make and model?) so we can have an exact duplicate of that system? I was thinking about using Clonezilla.

Hi All,
Previously I was assisted when I updated a Windows 7 Pro PC to Windows 10. On it was a Windows XP VM using the Microsoft VM kit. https://www.experts-exchange.com/questions/29158738/Windows-XP-VM-did-not-migrate-when-host-computer-was-upgraded-to-Windows-10.html (Thanks again for your help).

After migrating, I setup Hyper-V to be able to start the Win XP VM which has a new issue. It prompts to re-activate upon start-up. I am able to work around it for about 2-minute intervals before it locks and puts me at the Activate Windows screen. No big deal.

My primary issue is that I have a file that is on the Windows XP VM and I cannot copy it to the Host computer. I have tried Enable Guest Services, Enable Enhanced Services, etc but since it is Win XP that option is not recognized.

Any suggestions?

I have a Windows 7 Pro machine with a Windows XP Virtual Machine created by using the Microsoft VM software. I upgrade this machine to Windows 10 but the VM did not upgrade. I have a backup of the VM

Is there a way to set up the Windows XP VM on Windows 10?

I use Acronis. The basic way it works is that it does a full then incrementals thereafter. It will only keep a certain number of incrementals at which point it merges the oldest incremental in to the full thus creating a new full. The sync program would have do to it by "block" or whatever you want to call it or it will continually be trying to sync the huge full backup every day.

   The perfect way to do it would be to back up nightly to a NAS or big External Hard Drive and then sync that hard drive or NAS to the cloud. Same issue with merging the oldest incremental in to the last full thus creating a new full. So does anyone know of a sync program that is "block" aware of wherever you want to call it?

Acronis wants almost $900 for 1TB of Cloud Storage for 1 year. Isn't that a little outrageous? Why would I want to do that when my OneDrive account has 1TB for free?

What could Acronis's cloud storage bring to the party that would justify that? (Yes it will be used on a server running their backup software).

Hi,

Need help with PuTTY implementation. My app uses rsh to communicate between Windows XP and UNIX. After migrating to Windows 10, rsh doesn't work. I heard that PuTTY is the replacement. I have below rsh command, how to convert to PuTTY?

1. rsh [unixHost] -l [hostlogin] mv [file_1] [file_2]
2. rsh [unixHost] -l [hostlogin] touch [file_1] [file_2]
3. rsh [unixHost] -l [hostlogin] perl test.pl
4. rsh [unixHost] -l [hostlogin] test.csh > test.txt
5. rsh [unixHost] -l [hostlogin] test.sh

Is it true that I also need to rewrite my scripts/Perl in PuTTY? What need to be updated in the scripts/perl for PuTTY?

Thanks for your help.

I am opening a browse window, running some processes, then calling another program that opens a 2nd browse window.

I need them both to stay open until the user closes them.

If I just open one, it stays open.  If I open 2, they both flash on the screen then are closed.

select table1
go top
browse fields field1, field2, field 3 nowait

Call Program2
*-Program 2
select table2
go top
browse fields field1, field2, field 3 nowait

Dear Acronis experts,

Have you seen an activity log like the one below?

The problem is the backup will take longer than normal.

How to fix it?

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.

I just purchased a program to deploy a image to a new pc. I have 10 of the same pcs and i used the acronis snap deployment tool. It worked good.
Its been a long time, what the the unique IDs i should check? I remember there being SID GUID that are unique
The computer was not joined to the domain, it was basically take the junk off, add the basic programs, apply windows updates.
Can someone point me in the direction of what IDs i should check that matter in this situation?
Thanks.

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.

Regards,

Bill

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?
