Does 2012 Essentials support Single Instance Store ?

Question: Does 2012 Essentials support Single Instance Store ?

I can't seem to find info on this. Does the client backup support Single Instance Store like the old WHS products did ?

Preferred Solution: Does 2012 Essentials support Single Instance Store ?

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

Hi,

Is there a simple way to limit a program (specifically Internet Explorer) to only a single instance?

Thank you.

Hi, I have some problem files and am not sure how or if to get rid of them. I did all your steps with the programs. Am attaching them here...

Answer:Only a single instance of this application can run

Welcome to Major Geeks!

Your MGlogs.zip file is very incomplete. Did you have a problem running MGtools? Did you follow all instructions ( like disable UAC, disable protection software, use Right Click and Run As Administrator )? Did you wait for it to tell you it was finished before attaching the log?

I'm not seeing too much in your logs thus far. Just some Sendori junkware. What are your exact problems?

My school gives us server 2012 standard for free. I am wondering if it's possible to install it as 2012 essentials with the same features as essentials kind of like how win pro had every thing home had. Or are the features of server essentials not included in standard? (Features like full pc back up and the dashboard like whs 2011)
 

Answer:can you setup server 2012 standard as 2012 essentials?

Different media for the install, Server Standard and Datacenter use the same media. Essentials has it's own install disk and Foundation and Storage Server share the same media.

Running apps on the desktop is only one step towards WinRT ever replacing Win32. Which brings me to the purpose of this thread, does WinRT even support the running of multiple app instances? With apps replacing some key parts of Windows, it's important that you be allowed to run multiple instances of apps. Project Spartan browser, Calculator, Office Apps, Messaging, etc --- those are some key apps that most would want to run multiple instances of at one time or another.

Yes yes yes. This is really important.

Hi all. As you can tell from the title I am using handbrake to reencode some videos, and convert some files to other formats (wtv to mp4/mkv, etc), some of which are 1080p. I was wondering if I should run just one instance of handbrake and use the queue feature, or if I should run 2 or more simultaneous instances? Does one instance take full advantage of CPU? For reference, I have a quad core xeon with 8 threads (i7 920 equiv), but will be upgrading next week to a 6 core / 12 thread cpu.
 

Answer:should I run a single instance of handbrake, or multiple?

Just single. You can queue up encodes within handbrake, makes it super simple.

I have a Windows access control monitoring application that will only run on one PC (this is a limitation of the application). Currently it is running on Windows 7 but I am looking to move it to a windows 2012 Essentials server.
As only a single instance of the application can run, I would like multiple users to remote into the PC running the application and be able to see and interact with the single instance of the application.
Can anyone advise whether this is possible with or without a third party application?

Win10 V.1511 and V.1607.
Example TaskBar Button - File Explorer

If you open an instance of File Explorer, then click the task bar button again, File explorer window minimizes. If you right click, a popup opens with Pinned, Frequent, and File Explorer. If you click on File Explorer, another instance of Explorer will open.

If you open an instance of File Explorer and then, hold down the "Shift" key and left click the File Explorer TaskBar button again, another instance of file explorer will open.

This works with most any application that can run in multiple instances. At some time in the past (i.e. probably Win7 era) I found a way to make individual Task bar buttons work as if the shift key was pressed (i.e. each Left Click would always open another instance of the app). After upgrading to Win10 and subsequently after loading the anniversary updates, I managed to lose that function. Since I've slept once or twice since setting this up, I no longer remember how I did it.

So to my question, Does anyone know of a setting or registry hack that will make a taskbar button function as if the shift key is pressed when it is left clicked?

After a recent update to Excel 2010 (that came after upgrading Windows 10 Creators Edition) when clicking on more than one Excel file they all open in the same window (instance) of Excel. Before this update the files would open in separate instances. By opening in a single instance of Excel it is then necessary to either arrange the workbooks (tile, etc.) or switch between them. But this is not what I want to do -- I want to be able to open both files in separate Excel windows so that I can easily see them both in large screen windows on separate monitors like I did before this update.

I found a suggestion online to check the Ignore other applications that use Dynamic Data Exchange (DDE) advanced option in Excel. But this results in Excel opening itself with no open workbook when clicking on a file.

Word 2010 does not behave in this manner. If I click to open one Word file and then another, each is opened in a separate window (instance) of Word, which is what I want to do with Excel.

Any thoughts?

Answer:Excel 2010 Opening Files in Single Instance after a Recent Update

This Excel 2010 behaviour seems to be by design with little or no way to change it.

One workaround is to first open Excel itself rather than by clicking on a file. You can open as many Excel windows as you want that way. Then in each instance of Excel use 'File.. open' to open one of your spreadsheets, or click and drag each of your files and drop each one into a different Excel window.

Here's a new one for ya.

I have 2 accounts: admin & limited. I use the limited.

Upgraded from live essentials 2011 to essentials 2012. had mesh, skydrive, photo gallery/movie maker, and outlook hotmail connector.

The upgrade updated skydrive, outlook connector, and photogallery/movie maker, and removed mesh, as to be expected.

logged into limited account to access photo gallery and got this:


Went back to admin account and repaired it. It mentioned that a file corruption was preventing the repair. So I uninstalled it, reinstalled it, restarted, logged into admin, and accessed photo gallery. Worked fine.

Went into limited account again with the same error. It does eventually start up, but you have to click OK 5 times to make the error disappear.

Hi,

I try installing Windows Essentials and it wont install! This came up for 1 hour

I got bored and cancelled the process and now the windows all user install service agent wont work, I cant log onto and internet connection won't come to my apps I have install.

Do I have to refresh my computer or anything else?

Thanks

Al

Answer:Help with WIndows Essentials 2012

A refresh would be your easiest option. Remember that a refresh will remove any installed apps that were not pre-installed on the system and your data files will land in C:\Windows.old. Since that's the case, I like to suggest that afterwards, you install the apps you life, then create a new image using the "recimg" command line tool. That way your "refresh" will refresh with your apps installed and data intact.

Microsoft has released Windows Essentials 2012 which includes new versions of Movie Maker and Photo Gallery for Windows 7 and Windows 8. Details about the new features in Movie Maker and Photo Gallery are available in the Windows Experience Blog, Introducing the New Windows Photo Gallery and Movie Maker.
Windows Essentials 2012 includes the new SkyDrive for Windows app as well as Windows Live Mail, Windows Live Family Safety, Windows Live Writer, Windows Live Messenger, Outlook Connector Pack and Windows Photo Gallery and Windows Movie Maker. Windows Live Mesh and SkyDrive
If you install Windows Essentials 2012, it is important to note that if you have Windows Live Mesh installed, it will automatically be removed if you install the new Movie Maker or Photo Gallery. In its place Microsoft SkyDrive will be installed. Microsoft has specified that if the new Movie Maker and/or Photo Gallery in Windows Essentials 2012 are installed, you can not have Windows Live Mesh on the same PC.
In order to sync folders from the cloud to all of your PCs, it will then be necessary to install SkyDrive on all of your PCs or Macs. (Windows Live Mesh continues to be available from the Download Center: Windows Live Essentials.)

Wow- what a mess this is. You know, the Win8 love/hate thing- desktop OS vs. Tablet... I get it. Trying to make things easier for Joe Average user. No Problem. But this stupified, dumbed-down interface on Essentials is a joke. They have emasculated Small Business Server. I've been deploying SBS since the old 4.5 days. It evolved into what a lot of us feel was the best- 2011. Great product, served a HUGE need, and by 2011 they really fixed most everything that was ever wrong with it.

So of course, MS has to f**k it up. First, by removing Exchange, then by applying this moronic Win8 interface... to a server! It's truly pathetic. It has been sad to watch MS abandon the small business community- both its customers and the people like us who support it. This one is the worst yet.
 

Answer:2012 Essentials rant

They arn't abandoning them per say, just making the poor decision of trying to force everyone to hosted exchange and office 365.

SBS2011 was a good product and had its place in deployments, I tried to stay away from it though, I honestly don't like small companies having Exchange servers in their office.

Clients should be getting the DNS from the server, especially if you want clients to connect/use the server, especially for logons, policies, etc.
Im guessing the .254.254 is a uverse/att device?
Turn off the DHCP on the .254 device *or* add your current router into the DMZ type zone
Server should be sending out DHCP info
192.168.1.4 as DNS

I migrated an office from 2003 to 2012 Essentials.

I admin'd the box fine setting it up at home with RDS and installed REALVNC on it. Everything was groovy.

Took it to the office and migrated all the workstations to this new domain controller, migrated profiles, etc, moved files, remapped shares, did scripts, etc. Everything went very smooth.

I get home and cannot get to the box thru the VPN as I always did with the 2003 server. Can't ping it, get to it with RDS, VNC, nothing. Can't get to any of the workstations either. I'm thinkin' ohhh crap, I'm in trouble Monday morning, this office is down hard and dead!

Nope, nothing, no calls. I send an email to ask the Doctor if they turned everything off and he said no, everything is working fine.

I am not interested particularly in the web admin access, that I most likely disabled because I can't reach it either. But it looks interesting and I might re-enable it.

But mainly, how do I get RDS and VNC access back? This is a remote site and I'd like to know before I drive 100 miles round trip.
 

Answer:Windows 2012 Essentials Question

Windows firewall?
Possibly it (properly) detected the new network when taken to the office, but set itself to Public network instead of Work or Home?

We had that happen once here, except it was when someone did RDP in. The Network Detection dialog popped up, but he ignored the box; Windows presumably then selected Public network and blocked pretty much all inbound connectivity.
Though that did block literally all inbound connections.

Ok so I have been reading up here on rants and different things on the storage spaces piece...

I went from WHS v1 to WHS2011 now but am not running any backups or duplication or anything....

I am now running WHS2012E (if you will)...on a machine to make sure it all looks good. But I only have 1 drive in it at the moment..

so in my ESX 5.5i environment I installed it then added 2 drives...

just for confirmation....

what is the mimimum size drive to use for the OS???
I have a 1tb in there and was going to get 2 x 3tb drives.. and only use them.
but V1 would allow you to duplicate data that way but the new WHS2012E does not.
seems drive pool must be 2 seperate drives in addition to the OS drive so it makes no sense why wyou would want a 3tb OS drive...
(verified this by more googling... hah)
am I missing something here?

I am thinking 250gb or 320gb drive for OS (have them already)
3 x 1tb drive in a pool then mirrored x1 (as I have them too) - if that is what it is called...

I dont need 2 copies of this and 3 copies of that.. raid 5 for this and all that...

I have pics, movies, data files that are shared out to computers in the house... I just want to make sure if a drive goes I can get all my data back....

I don't do these posts (Hey look at me, I'm awesome!!!), but this one needed to be made...
I am a graduate of both WHS v1 and 2011. I liked both, missed drive extender, and loathed my ATT Gateway as a result. That said, they always backed up on time, and the way I wanted, with no issues (until Drive Bender decided to bork everything and my Windows 8 laptop refused to play nice with WHS2011).

Well, my server needed an upgrade anyway, so I decided to gut it (mostly) and start over with the new Server Essentials 2012. (SE2012 from here on)

Old Specs: Core 2 Duo E4400, 2gb DDR2, Some s775 Asus board, and a 9800GT PE + a 2TB WD Green.

New Specs: AMD A6-3650, 4GB DDR3, an MSI A55m-P33, an Intel 120gb SSD for the OS, and I added two more WD Green 2TB drives (total 6tb).

I cannot emphasize it enough how easy the setup was. Drivers installed with no issues, straight from the mobo disk, and then updated through windows update. Unlike with my two WHS installs, I didn't have to trick them into thinking it wasn't a server OS etc. Getting DriveBender back in the form of storage pools was awesome, and again, set up with no issues whatsoever including built in duplication. The entire process, hardware switch included, took MAYBE 2 hours. That includes setting up a domain on the network with SE2012.

I have successfully installed it but then when I attempted to launch Movie Maker (which is all I need) it told me that I was missing something (shouldn't the installation put EVERYTHING you need for the program to run on your computer?!). So I got that file and put it in the appropriate folder and then again attempted to launch Windows Live Movie Maker and I got another message saying I was missing a DIFFERENT file. I have run 2 different virus scans and cleans on my computer (because some forum told me to run a scan). Now what is happening is that I am running the installer and with in matter of seconds it says that Windows Essentials has successfully installed. However, when I go and try and use one of the WLE programs IT... IS... NOT... ON... MY.... COMPUTER! I am starting to get pissed off. I have spent hours on end attempting to fix this problem and no forum has helped me.

Hopefully now I can get some real help on what to do.

Hello there! I have been trying to install Windows Essentials 2012: Movie Maker for the entire day today. However thou, no matter how many times I try to install-reinstall-reboot-reinstall, the installation process stops at 80%.

Does anybody here experienced the same issue? I could really use some help. Thanks in advance!

Answer:Windows Essentials 2012 installation stuck

Hi and welcome to SevenForums,
I just downloaded it last night and didn't have any issues with the Custom install of just Movie maker and Photo gallery :/
Is that how you installed it or did you install the entire package ?
Cheers.

I've reached the end of my limited networking knowledge. Here's the deal:

- I have my home server running Windows Server Essentials 2012. Its primary function is backups of my various computers.
- My ISP is ATT Uverse, which provides a modem/router/gateway. It sucks teh ballz, so I set into bridge mode and set up a Netgear Nighthawk behind it. ALL devices are connected to the Nighthawk.
- I want to set up the server for remote access so that family can grab pictures and files remotely, and so I can do the same.
- I followed the instructions and the auto setup (I had to forward ports 80 and 443 manually, but that's done), and from the server's perspective, it says it is set up:



And now the problem:
When I try to access the sever from INSIDE the network, it loads the login page no problem. BUT, when I do so from the outside, the server sends no data, nothing loads.
Am I missing a setting on the bridged gateway?

Is Microsoft finally going to release new versions of its Windows Essentials software tools? I know Skype replaced the Windows live Messenger but it would be fantastic to get a new version of Windows Live Writer for my blogs. I would also love new updated versions of Windows Live Mail and Photo Gallery. Anyone know anything about these products. it has been two years since an upgrade and I want to install this bundle on my new laptop today so can someone provide me a link to a page where the latest version is so I can download this software package.

Hi all,
hope some good sould could help me here.

I want to install back live mail 2012 but at the end of the installation it keeps on reporting the following:

It looks like another program is preventing the installer from working.
Error: 0x80070643
Source: crt90-i386

instead of saying: done.

I've looked pretty everywhere but I couldn't find a solution.
I've tried a clean start, with just MS services, tried to uninstall feature NET framework and reinstall them, tried to stop and restart the firewall, tried to clean all the cache, temp files.
I also tried to install the messenger or the Photo gallery and Movie maker alone, without mail.
Nothing, it keeps on reporting that darn error
Anybody have an idea on what could be wrong?

Here's the latest in a long series of unsolvable problems where Windows Essentials 2012 can not be installed.

The repeated error message - error 0x80040609 - source WLX suite

Installation stops when installing Messenger. There are no previous Messenger installations on the computer.

The computer is running 64 bit Windows 7 . Windows was freshly installed on the computer a few months ago with no problem.

To save the time of asking me to take steps that will not work:

Windows firewall is turned on.

I've downloaded and tried running the offline standalone installer.

I'm running current DirectX.

All Windows Live directories and files have been removed. Uninstall advice does not work because the programs were never installed in the first place

I've downloaded the installation fail fixit and run it.

I've run Windows update.

I've found and zipped the installation log file but so far there's no place to send it.

There are no viruses or malware

Windows Media Player already is installed.

I've run msiexec /unreg
msiexec /regserver

The Windows Installer service is running.

While waiting for anyone to respond to the original message, here are two other alleged solutions that did not work.

Ran MSCONFIG and set it for only start up services. Then ran the Windows Live full offline installer and got the identical error failure.

Ran CCleaner twice. Then ran the Windows Live full offline installer and got the identical error failure.

I started Revo Uninstaller. Windows Essentials 2012 does not exist in the add/remove programs list.
I checked Control Panel. Windows Essentials 2012 does not exist in the add/remove programs list.

I've used Regedit to remove all reference to Windows Live. Then ran the Windows Live full offline installer and got the identical error failure.

I'm trying to help a friend to get their Windows Server 2012 Essentials setup up in their small business.

Server is operational, but I'm having issues connecting PCs to it...

I'm able to get to the server page by going to http://(servername)\connect
I can download the connector software, when I run it it finds the server it ask for user name and password.

After entering info it tries to connect for 20-60 seconds and fails with:

Cannot coonect this computer to the network
The Server is not available. Try connecting this computer again, or for more information, see troubleshooting connecting computers to the server.

any idea what could be causing?

could this be caused by network issues? They are using ATT DSL for internet access, with a ATT model, that is referred to as "gateway.pace.com"

They also have a zyxel smart switch, it seems that both ATT DSL and Zyxel switch are acting as DHCP, and both might be issuing IP addresses.

Another thing I noticed that they are using IP phones for all office phones.
All PCs are connected to the network with an IP phone as a device in the middle, that seems be slowing down the phones from normal gigabit to 10/100 only.

Any help would be grateful.

I am a first time windows server essentials user and i recently added my computer into the server but there is a conflict due to some kind of registry error and i can't delete the registry file from my computer since there is no user found on the permission for drop box. How do i gain permission to delete the registry
 

Answer:Registry Problem in Windows Server 2012 essentials

what do you mean by "added my computer into the server" as it's not clear what you did.
and clarify "there is no user found on the permission for drop box"
it should list local accounts and possibly the SID of a deleted domain user (if you mean you added your computer to the domain that Server 2012 Essentials creates)

Ok, so after a long time working fine, my desktops stopped backing up.

So, as recommended by the TN Article for Client Backup issues, I started the Database Repair Utility in the Dashboard.

It starts, and after a while it fails and says it fails due to an unknown problem. I click the link it provides to find help, and it dumps me in the generic Server2012E page. I've not been able to find any help on this issue.

Any idea's ?

I also ran a SFT /Scannow on the server. The last time I had a client backup issue this fixed it.

Exact Error Wording:

Backup repair did not complete.
An unknown error prevented the backup repair process from starting. Make sure that all services are running then try again.

The services I know to check are indeed running.

Sorry I call bogus. No way in H E double hockey sticks that Norton gets 4.5 stars and MBAM gets 3. Not to mention they use an old outdated version of MBAM. They compare version 1.51 when version 1.62 has been out for a while now. That just shows that PCMag doesnt want to step on their advertisers or people who pay them money for good reviews. Norton has done this in the past with PCMag and everyone knows it. They had the most adverts in the published mag and they still get favored on their online only mag now.

Not to even mention the fact they dont even test MSE at all. Funny how they test so many, but yet they dont test the one from the OS Developers themselves. PCMag can take a long walk off a short pier. They are only padding the ego of the people who write them checks. They are not nor will they ever be a publication to read if you want real results and feedback. They only care about who lines their pockets.

Have attempted to get Photo Gallery and Movie Maker on my Win 7 Pro computer. Installed Windows Essentials 2012 which is supposed to include these two programs. The only program that installs and shows up on the computer is Microsoft One Drive. Did a search of the computer but did not find either program. A number of websites discuss this problem and offer solutions. I've tried all of the solutions. None have worked for me. My computer specs are more than what is required for these two programs, so that isn't the problem. I'm beginning to wonder if these programs have been eliminated by Microsoft.

We have an important LOB application (QuickBooks 2018) that requires that requires Internet Explorer 11 for QB to operate correctly.  Unfortunately our server runs Windows Server 2012 Essentials as an operating system (not R2).  From reviewing
various Microsoft documents, I realize that IE 11 is not supported on Server 2012.  However, we need to be able to run QuickBooks, which requires that version of IE.  Upgrading the server OS to 2012 R2 would take hours, because there is no in-place
upgrade option.  We would have to reinstall and configure the OS again from scratch.
Is there anything we can do to resolve this problem?

Hey everyone,

I have a customer that we just installed a simple 2012 Remote Desktop Server (Session Based Desktops - NOT VDI) for application and data access. The server is a member server of a 2003 domain connected to a 2003 AD Controller.

Users at the company logon to both traditional desktops and a portion of their users will also now be logging into remote desktop sessions on this new box.

For the most part we have everything working how we want it. I am just having a tough time figuring out how best to lock down the RDS environment to close off administrative items I don't want them playing with. Things like control panel, getting into C drive, etc.

I tried to control a lot of these items from the local group policy editor of the server as I didnt want to mess with their domain group policies hitting traditional desktops, but no matter what I do on GPEDIT.MSC, none of the policies are enforced when domain users log in.

Am I missing something? Are the domain level policies overriding all of my local policies on the server? What is the best/easiest way to do some simple lockdowns for such an environment?

I have read online that some people setup a special OU to move the RDS server into and out of when they are doing maintenance, but this sounds like more of a roundabout then anything. I was hoping to just use local policies to control the gaps I want closed off on that single box.

The number of users hitting this box will number no more than 8 so ... Read more

Answer:Easiest way to lock down a single Windows 2012 Remote Desktop server?

Special OU is the easiest. Also, as long as the users are not local admins, a lot of the items are read-only and really not an issue if they get into them.

That's literally like having a REAL 2Gbs/4Gbs/6gbs/8gbs network for the price of a gigabit one. Lots of people in the forums says it's not possible, now it is! Truly amazing times.

I have also tried Ditto which does preserve the formating but Ditto stores in a database and with too many saved clips, my computer hangs.

Hi there Tech Support Guys..

I have been asked to set up a PC 'kiosk' for a family member's store. They want a PC that will display their website only, so that customers can browse stock listings etc, mostly to show stock that can be ordered but is not in store.
I am thinking about recommending one of the new touch-screen all-in-one PC's. I have a good amount of experience with computers (currently studying) and have a few ideas but I thought someone is bound to have a great recommendation for me!!

Any information would be a great help, I want to get this right the first time so it can be trouble free. I am going to ensure the PC purchased has inbuilt WiFi for the existing connection instore, and I want to make it as maintenance-free as possible - the owners of the store are not very tech savvy.
It needs to be able to be fired up by the staff and get started with minimal input.

Thanks in advance!!

I find it perplexing that Microsoft still hasn't considered adding the ability to share Windows Store apps between all accounts on a shared PC like a family desktop. There are several feedback items in the Feedback Hub calling for sharing options ranging from sharing apps across accounts added on the PC to sharing with accounts added as your family on all your PCs.
Consider a simple scenario. I own Quantum Break on the Windows Store through my Xbox One Pre-order. Now I would like to install the game on my family desktop and be able to have it playable on other user accounts on my PC. Unfortunately, Microsoft doesn't make this a straight forward process like it is on platforms like Xbox One or Steam. The only way you can do it is by adding all other accounts to your family and then changing the Windows Store account on all those accounts to my Microsoft Account.
I don't have to state how archaic this whole process is. Given how much Microsoft is promoting Xbox Play Anywhere these days, they really should focus on making these basic scenarios simple first. As it stands, I cant convince anyone in my circle of family and friends to invest in the Xbox ecosystem if it cant deliver these features which steam has had for years.

Answer:Why hasn't Microsoft implemented Windows Store app sharing between accounts on a single PC?

I'm sincere: first time I herd that. Accounts were created for differentiate people on the same machine, avoiding damages or interferences.
On desktops, when you install most apps / progs , if you choose Custom install instead of Fast, it will ask sooner or later "Applies on your account or all accounts"

I recently made another amateur tech support housecall to help a friends friend with a computer problem. Along with a little hardware I've bundled in a small toolbox I also bring along one program on a jumpdrive - this is a little application that identifies the startup programs in the msconfig>startup menu so I remove those which don't need to be there.
What other applications are out there that would be helpful in diagnosing someones computer problems? Something I can keep on a jumpdrive and just run to give me a look at workings of someones system, perhaps identify problems...not a virus scanner, I can do that online.
Thanks,
JTN
 

Answer:tech support housecall essentials?

Here's one I use a lot. Everest it's called and sometimes on house calls especially, you have someone who doesn't have their disks, so you need drivers, but then you find "other devices" in DM and can't identify the device. Everest installed will give you that information.

A few of my friends who are still running XP are getting messages that when XP support ends, they will also no longer get updates for MSE. I thought I read that updates for XP-MSE would continue for another year. Any thoughts.
If the above is true, what FREE Anti Virus would you recommend?

Answer:can my laptop support a single 8 GB RAM

Hi, From its Service Guide: Supports up to 8192 GB of system RAM DDR3/1333-MHzSupports the following configurations:? 8192-MB total system memory (40962; not supported with Windows 7 32-bit operating system)? 6144-MB total system memory (40961 + 20481)? 4096-MB total system memory (40961 or 20482)? 3072-MB total system memory (20481 + 10241)? 2048-MB total system memory (20481 or 10242)? 1024-MB total system memory (10241; not supported with Windows 7 64- or 32-bit operating system) No, you have to put 4 GB on each slot (4GB x 2) to get benefit of dual (dual means two) channel. 8GB on one slot won't work. Regards.

Hello all

I am running Windows Vista Home basic on my HP laptop... Over the last few days I have been unable to login to my computer. The startup goes fine then I put my password in. After about 3-5 minutes of waiting for Windows to start I get an error message that says

"The local session manager service failed the logon.
The rpc server is unavailable"

This error comes up everytime without fail. After about 1 minute, the computer will restart itself. I have tried using the windows repair utility. It says that it cannot find any errors. I am unable to login even to safe mode. Also I cannot use the system restore function as my computer says there is no restore points (although I am 100% sure I created one a few months back)
Can anyone help me? I'm all out of ideas

Hello....I have learned that support for MSE will be ending in a few months.  Since I still have Vista, can you folks recommend the best alternative anti-virus/anti-malware software that is FREE?  Thanks in advance for your prompt replies....

Answer:Support for Microsoft Essentials For Vista ending April 2017...

I have had very good experiences with the free version of Panda Cloud Antivirus on home user's machines, including my own before they went to Windows 10 and I switched to the built-in new version of Windows Defender.
 
Unless they've changed something, and since my clients whose machines I've installed it on haven't been in touch to complain I have to believe they haven't, you don't even get the little pop-up in the lower righthand corner of the screen asking you if you want to upgrade to the paid version very often at all.  When you do, either dismiss it or it quickly dismisses itself.

Hi

Having upgraded to Windows 8 Pro 64 bit, I have discovered that I have limited control of my options, in Windows Live Mail (Essentials 2012 version)!

Prior to the upgrade, and with the 2011 version of WLM, I was able, through the Options facility to select certain actions, such as:

"Send/Receive on Start up!
and
Delete messages from the deleted folder on close down!

The Options Tab, which allowed these choices, was on the tool bar, at the top of the window, just below, and just to the left of the Close Window X!

This facility does not appear on the current 2012 version!

I would appreciate any advice on this matter

At the moment, I have to manually select Send/Receive, and manually delete old messages

Answer:Management of Windows Live Mail - Windows Essentials 2012

Hi Theo, When first installing W8 I noticed the 'Tile' for Windows Live Mail in 'all apps'. Didn't take much notice as don't use Live Mail which in W7 & W8 was an integral part of Messenger. However to use Messenger you had to create a Live Mail/Hotmail a/c.
Well having become more settled with what I need in W8 I thought I'd have a look at the 'Windows Live Mail' and so pinned the tile to Start & Desktop. I just opened it today and found it has the new UI of the Ribbon Type which makes it very flexible and perhaps more attractive to future use by me. I also noticed it had the 'Options' you require, which you will find on the Toolbar when you create a new message. Hope this helps.

Answer:Re: Does Satellite L755D-S5363 support 8GB single ram module?

the capacity of the ram is not bios but motherboard dependent, and the overall ram your motherboard supports is 8gb. in that case you drive cheaper with 2*4GB than 1*8gb.

Swift 3, relased about the same time, does not, according to multiple web reports. I can find no one reporting success with Linux 64 (lots of distributions tried) and while Linux 32 can be installed, there are lots of compatibility issues that make some capabilities inoperable. See: http://community.acer.com/t5/Swift-Spin-S-and-R-Series/Ubuntu-on-Swift-3-SF314-51-74FW-black-screen-... It is odd that these Linux issues exist, because their BIOS vendor brags about their comprehensive test suite for ensuring compatibility with operating systems. "Deploy platforms with multiple OSes with a single secure BIOS. blah blah blah" https://www.insyde.com/products Maybe Acer has told them not to bother with Linux (or Windows 7, which is also a problem with Swift 3).

Hi All, I have been scouring through the forums to try and support my Yoga 910 and USB-C thinkpad docking station. Thanks to all of your posts, I have solved the following: 1. Docking station works but needs 2 USB-C cables, one for displaying data, one for power. For the power I used the actual lenovo charging cable because I dont want to chance trying the usb-usb-c option. 2. I can get it to work with the external monitor now My problem now, is that despite getting the picture to work with a DisplayPort -> HDMI cable, the picture is horrible. Using applications like Outlook, the pages arent defined now. text is exceptionally fuzzy. My laptop is configured to 4k, but the monitor is only 1080p, I am not willing to lower the resolution on the laptop, but are there other options? I run the same setup on my surfacebook and it works fine. I really love the Yoga 910, but the docking solution is pretty poor, so I hope this is just some resolution configuration I am missing. I am using a Dell U2414H - and with the DisplayPort cable being this: https://www.amazon.ca/gp/product/B015OW3GJK/ref=oh_aui_detailpage_o00_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1 I noticed it only supports up to 1080p which I hoped would be ok, but is that my mistake? Is the laptop putting out a 4k feed and the cable isnt liking it? Please let me know.

Google doesn't really help.Can anyone please confirm this and tell me of any (cost-effective) alternatives.

You can't do that only ide. Use IDE. SATA is annoying trying to configure anyway (by my means).
