Web Based Change Log Application

Question: Web Based Change Log Application

I posted in this forum as I feel this is security related. Mods move if need be.

I'm looking for a web based (preferably PHP) change log program. It should do the following:

1. Be simple!
2. Allow people to enter descriptions of basic system changes
3. Changes should have categories by systems and can be filtered as such.
4. Time stamp the actions and have a "master display" where all changes can be viewed
5. LDAP authentication would be nice.


Does such a thing exist? My goggling has failed due to "change log" being such a popular term.

Preferred Solution: Web Based Change Log Application

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, I want to assign a custom icon to every file type no matter what the associated app is. I can change individual default icons, but they get overwritten by the application icon. Is it possible to do this :

And if so, how ? (I want to keep the file associations: .css and .txt are still getting open by Sublime, .ini by WordPad and so on ...)

Thanks.

Answer:Change Icons based on extension only, not the associated application.

The following Microsoft Dev Centre page explains how this can be done via the Registry. (Note: I have not tested this myself in Windows 10)

Hi everyone,

Scenario 1 (currently working): I wrote the below macro in order to change D4 and D5 to blank when the D3 selection (drop down selection) is changed. Since these cell are linked, when the D3 dropdown changes the users will be forced to make a new selection from D4 and D5.

Scenario 2 (what I would like to accomplish): Now I would like to make D5 become blank when the selection for D4 changes, but I am not able to make it do that.

Here is the code that is working right now for scenario 1:

Private Sub worksheet_change(ByVal Target As Range)
If Target.Address <> "$D$3" Then Exit Sub
Range("D4").ClearContents
Range("D5").ClearContents
Range("D14").ClearContents
Range("D15").ClearContents
End Sub
 

Answer:VBA: change cell to blank based on change to another

Hi mjkd,

Try something like

Private Sub Worksheet_Change(ByVal Target As Range)
If Target.Address = "$D$3" Then
'Exit Sub

Range("D15").ClearContents

Can somebody explain to me what a LAN Based Application is? I've tried to google it but cannot find nothing. I would imagine its an application that only operates within a LAN, so i.e an office, so it wont be able to communicate to another office?

Thanks
 

Answer:LAN Based Application

It is an application that runs only on a LAN (Local Area Network) without internet access.

The LAN could be small, 3 - 4 clients; or large with over 500 clients in multiple buildings.
I have worked in both situations and used propriatary applications that ran on the LAN, but were not designed to be accessed from the internet.

Video Conferencing, Remote Access Control, Gaming Servers, all started as LAN applications.

This is the best info I could find and it isn't much.

I have a neat idea that I would like to try out. Caution this is going to get nerdy not just geeky. I play D&D and my group uses a program that has our characters on it. It's a very old program made for Win 95 but I have made it work in everything from Linux to Vista.

I want to find a way to put the program online so my group can all edit their characters instead of doing it last minute before we play. I have a web server and hosting so thats no issue. My first thought is to use a VPN or terminal services but is there a way to just host the application by it's self? What I would like is something as non technical as having a desktop icon they can just click and it opens the program as if it's local.
 

Answer:make an application web based

Sure, just rewrite it in some language your web server can run and have it save all its data in an appropriate database accessible to the web server.


If you're talking about just putting the .exe on your website, it doesn't really work that way. By default, Windows won't run programs from the internet, and the web server won't allow you to write data to it. Depending on how the app works, you may be able to give each person a copy and configure it to save its data remotely in a central location. It might be possible to do something like Sysinternals Live, but I doubt you'd be able to do with just regular hosted webspace. That also doesn't take into account the saving/sharing of data, just the remote access to the .exe.

A user has resized a window within a hosted web application to the point where it is exactly OK/too small, meaning it flickers back and forth between having scroll bars and not. While it is in this state, it essentially freezes out any other [COLOR=green !important][COLOR=green !important]commands[/COLOR][/COLOR] in the window or ability to resize it. Are there any ways to interupt this, delete application window size preferences or other ideas? I know this is data that is stored locally as I can execute the same functions on another PC sucessfully. This is viewing of a web hosted PC based medical application by a standard PC running Windows 7, IE9. Is there a way to delete user preferences for the application so it will default to orginal window sizing?

I have a web based application and want it to port it on Windows Vista . What are the procedures I must follow to check for its compliance on safe deployment on Vista?

Answer:Web Based Application Compliance Testing

Let's see. I have no clue, but if I think about it, it must be:
Does your web server software work properly in Vista?
Which flavor of Vista do you plan on using?
Do you have the hardware to support it?
Have you checked into any of the documentation?
If you have checked into the documentation, promptly ignore it, set up your own test box, and see how things shake out. If what you find out on your own correlates with the documentation, then you might start to have some confidence.

That's where I would start if it were me. Essentially, a web service comes down to the web-server software, some sort of a middle tier, and I would imagine some sort of database. Are they compatible with Vista?

For the pharmacy I have made an application to support a drug preparation. This application is used in public pharmacies as well as in hospitals and industry.
This is a web-based application. So the installation has been done on the server with a configuration within IIS.
The clients start the application in InternetExplorer.
Why InternetExplorer? Because the client's preparation protocols, raw materials need to be weighed and labels must be printed. Hereby I use self-programmed ActiveX controls. And other browsers do not support ActiveX controls.
The web-based application is generally found to be good.
As Edge is increasingly "pushing", InternetExplorer seems to be the cornerstone, as well as the application described above.
My questions are now:
- How long are web-based applications still supported?
- Will Edge support ActiveX controls in the future?
- Is there an alternative?
I would appreciate if there were sound answers to the above questions.
Sincerely,
Wim

Hi,

Could anyone tell me which of the many languages I should/could use to develop a browser based application meant to support database functions (store/retreival to local disk of user inputs) and that could read and send data off the host PC serial port. I'm not looking for client/server stuff, just a plain browser based application running on a local machine for accessing its local serial port and sending/storing data to or from it. I could do it using WinAPI or MFC but I would prefer to have the familiar web based application instead.

I'm not familiar with ASP.NET, PHP, XML, SQL etc... so I wonder if any of them could dot the job ??

Thanks in advance.

HI There,
 
I'm looking for a simple windows service that I can schedule to run that will do the following:
 
1.  Search a .log file for a given phrase - "fail" for example.
2.  If this is found, send an email and alert (screen popup) to the administrators.
 
I may need to resort to a batch file do this, but I hope was hoping something already existed and I could have this up and running very quickly.
 
Please let me know if you know of anything that fits the bill.
 
Thanks.

Answer:Looking for an application that searches in a file and emails based on finding

This is a simple batch file if you have an e-mailer that lets you send from the command line.  I haven't tried this in ages on Windows, so I don't know which one(s) might be available.
 
You should take a look at the post, How to create a command-line toolkit for Windows, on these very forums, paying special attention to the "grep" command that's part of UnixUtils.  Grep allows you to do the kind of search for text content you're seeking with ease.  You can then either query the status code returned after the command or redirect the output of the command to a file, and check that its size is not 0 bytes, to determine whether it found what you're looking for.  A simple 'if' construction afterward to trigger the e-mail to be sent and you're done.
 
You may prefer to go with installing Cygwin rather than the UnixUtils if you want something more current and want to have a more extensive set of Unix commands available to you under Windows.

First, some terminology...Conditional formatting is used to change the format of a cell when the specified condition(s) is(are) TRUE. Thus the name Conditional formatting.You are asking for the contents (not the format) of the cell to change based on the value in another cell.That is done with a basic IF function, which you can find in the Excel Help files.However, you left out a condition.

I'm guessing that detecting the wireless/wired network I'm connected to, or looking for a server or specific piece of hardware (laptop dock) are the best ways to reliably determine the laptop's location.

What is the best way to change cell colors based on a cell color (Not a number)?

I have a condition where a cell may have green background (conditional formatting), and on the next update, a different cell may have the green background (same condition, but not the same cell). I would like several cells in that column to change to the same color when this happens, they will be different rows, but will be on the same row as the change occurs ... it is dynamic.
*********
Condition 1:

G8 background color is = green

Change adjoining cells to the right and down to the same color
(H8:K8 and G9:K12) The inclusive range would be (G8:K12)
********
Condition 2 on update:

G8 is back to normal but H8 is now green

Cells in column G are back to normal but adjoing cells to the right and down should now be green.
(I8:K8 and H9:K12) The inclusive range would be H8:K12)
*******
Here is an example of the conditions above.

Condition 1
Row G H I J K
8 20 22 33 32 35
9
10 24% 15% 22% 21% 25%
11 80 82 90 88 89
12 44% 45% 48% 47% 50%

Condition 2
Row
8 22 33 32 35 38
9
10 15% 22% 21% 25% 27%
11 82 90 88 89 90
12 45% 48% 47% 50% 52%

The cells I want to highlight will not be of the same value and there are formulae in every cell.

Thanks
I haven't got the hang of copying the cells from Excel to the post. sorry about the formatting.
 

Answer:Change Range Cell Color Based on Another

In (nearly) simplest terms, and assuming from what you say that there'll NEVER be a time when G8 AND H8 are BOTH green, then

If Range("G8").Interior.ColorIndex = 10 Then
Range("G8:K12").Interior.ColorIndex = 10
ElseIf Range("H8").Interior.ColorIndex = 10 Then
Range("H8:K12").Interior.ColorIndex = 10
End If

You'll have to get back to us on what sheet event might fire this. & let us know if the actual cond formatting (a) blocks the code and/or (b) remains intact.

If this cell value is greater than 0.125, above or below the previous cell, then I need the value entered to be RED. If it falls within the range of 0.125 above or below, the need the value to be BLACK.example: cell1(12.008), cell2(12.110).....True, remains BLACK b/c it is within the range of 0.125, above or below.example: cell1(11.523), cell2(11.950).....False, text entered becomes RED b/c it is outside of the accepted range of 0.125, above or below.Any help is greatly appreciated!

Change PowerPoint shape based on data in Excel. I need to change the color of a specific unique shape on a specific slide in PowerPoint presentation using data obtained from Excel.

issues are:
1. how to select the slide I want
2. how to select the unique shape object I want
3. how to use the data in Excel to change the color of that one particular shape object, not all the shapes of that type.

example is I use the numbers (1, 2, 3, 4) stored in Excel and when the number changes the color of the associated oval in PowerPoint is changed.
 

Answer:Change PowerPoint shape based on data in Excel

If you have a powerpoint presentation I imagine the shape you mention is an imbedded shape and linked to Excel, well, then you don't need to know which slide and the unique object, you let Execl do that and the imbedded shape will change when Excel is changed and refreshed.

Hello, my laptop is 5years old now, but is a very high performance one (Alienware m15x).

I've upgraded from Windows 7 to Windows 10, however I hate the layout for much of it.

I only use the 1511.086 build.
I tried the 1607 build but the layout is just disgusting and unusable for me,
so I've had to disable the updater service to stop it forcing an upgrade to newer builds.

I'm happy with the 1511 build,
however I use ie11 only not edge browser, deleted all those live-tile bars on start menu, use an old synaptics touchpad driver, deleted cortana.

I only use my laptop for watching videos online, writing emails, creating presentations, twitter... Ect
So my main requirement is for highest video graphics quality, internet speed and performance speed, and compatibility with all websites even that have live-streaming flash... etc


I upgraded to Windows 10 cos I thought it'd be faster at processing, would have higher quality graphics, and would run all websites faster.
Plus I worried that in 2-3years Windows 7 would become very slow.

However what will be better for my requirements, going back to Windows 7 or staying on Windows 10 build 1511??

Answer:Should I change back to Windows 7 based on my requirements/dislikes??

Answer is neither. 1511 is no longer supported and is a security risk. Windows 7 will stop support in time.

The layout is much more optional with latest versions.

Hi all,

Complete newbie here, have been reading various posts and trying to figure things out on my own but to no avail. Maybe someone can shed some light on my problem.

I'm using Excel 2004 (Mac) and want to create a VBA/macro that would change the background colour of specific cells (say A4, A5, A6 and C8) based on the number OR letter in the cell. There is a drop-down from which the user must select either 0,1,2,3,4,5 or H for these cells. I want the colour to change based on the user's selection as follows:

0 or 1 = Red (i.e. colour value 3)
2 or 3 = Yellow (i.e. colour value 6)
4 or 5 = Green (i.e. colour value 4)
H = Lavender (i.e. colour value 7)

I've found sample event code showing how to change the cell colour based on a numerical value/range, as well as different sample code showing how to change the colour based on the letter/text, but not *both in one*. (I've found out how to to insert the code via View Code when clicking the worksheet tab but am unfortunately not savvy enough to know how to set up the code correctly).

I can't imagine it would be too complex for someone with a decent level of VBA/macro knowledge. BTW, I would be using conditional formatting to do this except it only allows for 3 conditions/colours, whereas I need 4! (thanks MicroSoft...)

Any suggestions on how to do this would be very much appreciated!
 

Answer:How to change cell colour in Excel based on number *or* letter?!?

Technically, you can still use conditional formatting in this case - you have 4 cases and 3 max options. So just make the default background Lavender, then then use the 3 conditional cases to change it to Red/Yellow/Green. As it's a dropdown, this shouldn't break anything and selecting H will leave the default lavender colour. Not ideal, but perhaps a simple macro-free option.

If you want to use VBA then you can use code like this:

http://www.ozgrid.com/VBA/excel-conditional-formatting-limit.htm

This page explains how the Case statement works for number and letter selections (near the bottom):

Hope that helps

I want it to integrate with the default weather desktop gadget so that the current weather and/or time is reflected in my desktop. If possible I would like it to have a GUI so you can easily change what backgrounds/themes associate with each feature. I wouldn't mind doing the coding on this myself but I'll go ahead and say that I'm 15 and no almost nothing about building something like this from scratch.

1- Is it possible
2- How hard would it be to do this with all the features I mentioned
3- Is there any way I could do most of it (or any of it) through Visual Studio 2010 Express?
4- Better yet, could I make the app into a desktop gadget itself?

Excel Macro Change Font ColorI was looking for some help in a workbook. This workbook consists of multiple sheets. Each sheet contains data that I entered, formulas that add items on an individual sheet, links to other sheets and links to other workbooks. I would like to write a macro that will change the color of the font in the entire workbook that depends on the formula or lack thereof in a cell. The font color is based on four scenarios:1) If the cell contains text (such as the word "Average") or a hard-coded number (such as "150,000"), the font of the cell should be in blue.2) If the cell contains a formula that calculates based on items on cells located in on the sheet where the formula is located, the font color should be black. For example on Sheet1, the font of the cell containing the formula =SUM(E4:E12) should be black.3) If the cell contains a formula that calculates based on (a) cells located on the other sheets or (b) located on the other sheet plus the sheet where the formula is located, the font color should be green. For example on Sheet1, the font of the cell containing the formula =Sheet2!A1 or =Sheet2!A1+Sheet1!A1 should be green.4) If the cell contains a formula that calculates based on items on cells located in an entirely different workbook, the font color should be red. Any help that you could offer is greatly appreciated.

Answer:Need a macro to change font color based on cell formula

I am assuming that the default font color in your workbook is Black, so this code doesn't bother checking for formulas that reference the sheet that the formula is on. If the font is already black, why write code to set it to black?Obviously you'll have to test the code in your workbook to see if it does what you want since here is no way for me to replicate your formulas, text or numbers.It seemed to do what you asked for when I set up a test workbook.I suggest that you try it in a backup copy of your workbook since macros can not be easily undone.Sub ColorMyFonts()
'Loop through Sheets
For shtNum = 1 To Sheets.Count
'Loop through cells
For Each cell In UsedRange
'If Text or Number, Font is Blue
If WorksheetFunction.IsText(cell) Or WorksheetFunction.IsNumber(cell) Then
cell.Font.ColorIndex = 5
End If
'If Formula, check for "[" to see if a workbook is referenced
'If no "[", check for "Sheet" to see if Sheet is refernced
If cell.HasFormula Then
myForm = cell.Formula
If InStr(1, myForm, "[") > 0 Then
cell.Font.ColorIndex = 3
ElseIf InStr(1, myForm, "Sheet") > 0 Then
cell.Font.ColorIndex = 50
End If
End If

Hi,

My VBA/Macro knowledge is very basic, but I am able to record macros and edit them. I have a scatter plot (with 5 series) and I want to automatically change the line style (i.e. solid or dashed etc.) depending on the text in a cell. This is what I tried, but I cannot get the code to reference the cell which contains the text:

--------------------------------------------------------------

Sub Macro14()
'
' Macro14 Macro
'
'
ActiveSheet.ChartObjects("Chart 1").Activate
ActiveChart.SeriesCollection(1).Select
With Selection.Format.Line
.Visible = msoTrue
.DashStyle = msoLineSolid
End With
End Sub
--------------------------------------------------------------

For the line ".DashStyle = msoLineSolid" I tried ".DashStyle = Range("A7").Select" but this does not work.

Is there a simpler way to set-up a macro to format graphs automatically based on a cell content/format/colour, does anyone know a good guide to do this?

Thanks

Hi, i've recently been doing work with an internet cafe and we need a solution for re-imaging. I have an image created with ghost but I have no software to use to distribute it and the client PC's only have CD-R/RW and the image is 4.3GB.

I tried to use Ghost recovery disk to map the network drive where I have the image but the recovery disk didn't couldn't detect my network card (I'm guessing it didn't support the specific NIC of the client PC's)
I need a software solution that will let me re-image any computer from a centralized location (server) over the network. We have about 40-50 client PC's. So far we have been doing manual installs (The entire server crashed and took all the old software with it so we're starting from scratch)

If anyone could help, we could open this business a lot sooner than expected with software that can do this!

Thanks

Hi all,

I have read online that there is a solution for ADO-base application to work from top-down level, i.e, Win 7 to Win XP etc. However, I would like to know is there a solution to solve a bottom-up level problem for ADO application to work. A
short background story, I'm now working on a VB6 project which is running perfectly fine in Win XP ver. However, when I move my project from XP to Win 7 SP1 (Enterprise Version), and I tried to recompile it, I got the
"xx_deprecated" error.
I learn that using msado60_Backcompat.tlb is able to solve the top-down issue. So what about bottom-up? Does this method works too? Hope any gurus here can advise on me this issue. Thank you very much.

I am using a UX theme and am still not in love with it. TBH, I love winLaunch. I know the mac feel isn't for everyone, but as much as I hate macs work flow its hard to say they are not beautiful. I would like to make it so the start orb instead opens WinLaunch.exe, if possible. Just wanted to ask and be sure. Seems every other windows functionality can be found in System32, maybe Im missing something.

Answer:Is there a way to change the start menu application?

I don't think there is a user accessible way of doing this. It could be done with third party software but I don't know of any.

Hi,

Is it possible to change the icon used on the taskbar item for an application. As an example, I've included a picture of the Outlook 2013 item.

Thanks,

Answer:Change icon on minimized application

Hmm, try this (not sure if you will be satisfied):
- I don't know how to change an exe directly (and usually don't change them )
- Right click on shortcut of outlook, or just create one (send to->desktop)
- Shortcut tab->Change Icon
- It will show some default icons
- select one and click apply
- start program with that shortcut

if you don't like the default icons
- select browse and open an icon file

You should be able to download from internet
or try:
Windows\system32\imageres.dll
Windows\system32\shell32.dll
Windows\system32\DDORes.dll
Windows\System32\moricons.dll (MS DOS Icons)

Please note that this works with regular exe files, but I don't know if it will work with Outlook

I have an old application which I have running all the time, which I don't want to appear in the taskbar (left hand part to the right of the start button).

Is there any way using registry entries or mods to the shortcut to have it continue to run but not show in the taskbar?

Please not I am *not* talking about the stuff that's at the right hand end of the task bar (notifications and such).

I don't have source so can't change the application.

Cheers

You could try "TrayIt", which minimizes a running application to the system tray instead of the taskbar:

I have the HTC One M8 Windows phone running the latest preview for developers. I just got the phone and transferred all my data from my Nokia 928. Now when I go into notifications + actions none of my apps are showing up so I can change the sounds IE facebook, twitter, NFL. The only ones showing up are Email, Messaging, Phone, and store that's it. Why are my other apps that had this feature on my 928 not showing here on the HTC? PLEASE HELP!!!!!!

Answer:how to change the installation directory for an application?

I think not.  As you know, a multitude of entries get added to Windows registry during software installation.  You need to uninstall Orcacle and then install it at that new location.  Do not merely try to move the program folder for Orcale program files to a different location via Windows Explorer.  That would most likely mess things up and make Orcale inoperative on your system.

A few weeks ago I let someone with very little computer knowledge (he had to drive 1 hour back & forth 5 times to open and save an email attachment each time he had to do that).

Anyway since the last time he came when he was on the computer I noticed a Firefox window opened in a tiny 1x2 inch window in my top left corner of the screen and I had never in years seen that.

Ever since that day my Firefox windows often open in a tiny 1x2 inch window where you barely see half the toolbar and nothing else.

It's getting really annoying and that time he came was just after my last backup disk got full so I had to erase my entire backup disk to start a new one, so I had no recent backup to restore to restore to after he did this.

How do I get my Firefox window to open a normal size again, and I don't mean just maximized, I want the restored window size to no longer be 1x2 inches.

Answer:How to change default application Windows size?

Dragging the window to the size you want it or maximizing it and then selecting File > Close/Exit should save the window in that state.

I uninstalled a game (Lego Star Wars 2, which had uninstall issues, apparently) and even though the game is completely off my computer, I'm having trouble getting rid of the game that shows up on my change/remove applications control panel. I went into regedit and deleted the uninstall keys containing the game. I don't know how, but it created a duplicate of the game on the change/remove control panel. I was able to get rid of the original one, but now am having trouble trying to delete the duplicated one. There's not even a change/remove button for it. It's not a big deal, but I'd like to get rid of it.

Thanks!

I need to set up certain words to change automatically in email, word, excel etc pretty much any where the word is typed.

Is this even possibles? It is an extensive list and will require updating from time to time

For example if the word Boxcap was typed it would change it to BOXCAP. Or Servo-Drive would change to SERVO-DRIVE

The select word will all be changed to all caps that is really the only change.

Also if anyone has advise on whether this can be achieved on Apple devices ie iPhone and iPad that would be very handy

Thank you

How do I Change Which Application open my DVD's. Real Player is the default and it was Media Player prior to a download. Thanks, Tony

Answer:How To Change Which Application Open My Media Files I.e. Dvd's

Hi there,1. Click Start, then click My Computer, and Right-Click the drive that you use to play DVD's.2. Under the Auto Play tab, select DVD Movie from the drop-down list.3. In the Actions box, tick the "Select an action to perform" option and select the application of your choice. 4. Click Apply-->OK and your done.NOTE: Selecting the "Prompt me each time to choose an action" option may suite you better for the simple fact that it lets you decide what to do, instead of auto-starting everytime. Sometimes you may not want to watch the DVD right away, maybe you might want to open it in another Media Player. Just a little food for thought. Hope this helps,nos

I overclock my CPU by changing its FSB and I have scheduled (Task Scheduler) this script to run every time I logon to Windows. But I would like to schedule it to downclock when I pull the power cord and then overclock as I plug it back in. Is this possible? It would also be nice if Windows changed the power plan when switching between AC/battery.

Answer:How can I change power plan and run scripts based on power state?

Hello Apex,

I'm not sure it's possible to have Windows change power plans automatically like that.

However, if you like, you could use either tutorial below to help make it easier to manually switch between power plans whenever you like.Power Plan - Choose from Desktop Context Menu in Windows

I have windows 7 home premium on my 'DELL 580S'- desktop (i3, 3.2ghz, 4gb, 400gb, dvd +/- R/W). I have VLC player as default player to view all my videos. I have MOYELA -FLV editor installed. I downloaded, edited & merged two '.FLV ' files, since one song was split and continued on the host site. The edited file is not playing on VLC player. But it plays well on MOYELA FLV PLAYER. So, if I change the APPLICATION to Moyela player for this edited file in 'PROPERTIES', all other files are also automatically changing to Moyela from default 'VLC'. So also, if I change the application of one '.PDF' file to 'ADOBE READER', all other files are also changing from my default 'FOXIT READER' to 'ADOBE READER'. Can some expert help me to find how to change the application for only some files keeping others to my default ?

However, we have noticed that one of the registry keys of the external softwareis being modified by our software.

We have extracted the call stack at the point where the registry was modified. (The call stack was extracted from the output
of ProcessMonitor. To monitor registry activities, "Show Registry Activity" should be enabled and path
Filter must be added for the particular registry item that is modified.)

The registry value is supposed to be 4, but was changed to 1.
