    .NET Framework 4.7.2

    I see that .NET Framework 4.7.2 is an optional update. I've been holding off installing it, but I've been wondering if there any good reasons to install it. Phil

  7. Hello all, as announced I have released a new CAupdater - and here is how it works. Download via CAupdater, password is wU8moSRS1S9vfYc Installation is easy, only extract the 7z file (and see under "/docs"). The benefit is the enhanced error handling. CAupdater will install only NEW MS CAstore (sst) files (always together with files not updated but still actual), regardless if incorrect OLDER files offered on MS servers. CAupdater use the update procedure as offered from MS regardless the version previous installed via WU / MU. Only WGET is used additionally to download the MS CAstore (sst) files, there are no other third party tools for the update of the CAstore. CAupdater himself only manage and launch the update. You can find the full AutoHotkey (AHK) code with comments of CAupdater.exe in the subdirectory "docs", see the file CaUpdater.ahk.txt. This are the steps CAupdater make. Every step, even every single MS CAstore (sst) file install, has a error routine and give a feedback about any error. 1. WGET looks for newer MS CAstore (sst) files on MS server and download them local only if they are newer as local stored. 2. Then compare the actual local stored MS CAstore (sst) file dates with the last installation (the file dates of the previous update are stored in the CAupdate INI file). 3. Then ask for confirmation to update the local client CAstore if one ore more local stored MS CAstore (sst) files are new. 4. If "YES" install ALL local stored MS CAstore (sst) files (ALL - this is the same as the MS CAstore update do). If "NO" CAupdater do nothing - and finish. The five commands to install the MS CAstore (sst) files are: updroots.exe authroots.sst updroots.exe -d delroots.sst updroots.exe -l roots.sst updroots.exe updroots.sst updroots.exe -l -u disallowedcert.sst 5. At last show the status (or errors if some), safe new installed MS CAstore (sst) file dates in CAupdater INI file and finish. If errors occure, only the date and status of the update try is stored in the INI file, so you can look for the problem and try again. With this steps only NEW MS CAstore (sst) files will be installed (always together with files not updated but still actual), regardless if incorrect OLDER files offered on MS servers. When you run CAupdater the first time there are no file dates in CAupdater INI file present. So ALL MS CAstore (sst) files marked as NEW in the confirmation dialog. This is also a way to install all MS CAstore (sst) files again - simply delete all the file date entries under section [CAupdaterLog] in CAupdater INI file and start CAupdater again. If you want to run CAupdater without any confirmation dialog you can set the entry "NoConfirmation=1" in CAupdater INI file. Then only Errors will be shown. With set to 2 only a small information dialog is shown on the end and close after five seconds. For special situations you can use two batch files stored in the subdirectory "UpdRoots". This will install the local stored MS CAstore (sst) files the same way as WU / MU do and set also all registry settings needed. The two batch run only this commands: #RootsUpdate.bat Rundll32.exe advpack.dll,LaunchINFSection rootsupd.inf,DefaultInstall #RevokedRootsUpdate.bat Rundll32.exe advpack.dll,LaunchINFSection rvkroots.inf,DefaultInstall The INF files are modified as shown by heinoganda in the first post of this thread
  8. Hello Big Muscle... I donated 5 euros today and when I put the downloaded donation key in the C:\Aeroglass folder and I reboot, it says "Aero glass does not know how to hook your version of DWM" (and I have the symbols in the C:\Aeroglass\symbols folder) and it says "Do you want to download the symbols from Microsoft server?" I press Retry, even though I know that they've discontinued all symbol downloads now. So the window reappears, and then I press Cancel and the window goes away. Then when I open another window, there's no Aero Glass! Please help me Big Muscle! Attachments area
  9. Hello All. New member here. Super thread, thank you. Windows update working flawlessly for me using IE8 by the way. Thanks MS. Question: GHOst from Ryanvm.net said I should pose my question here in regards to his August update patch, so here goes. After installing GHOst's August 2018 patch everything is fine after install except I cannot scan from my canon printer to my PC any more, at least the file will not write to the hard drive and pops up the following error message. "cannot write file. Code 10,242,7" I Googled extensively and the one explanation that made sense came at the end of page 2 of this forum link > https://community.usa.canon.com/t5/Offi ... 659/page/2 Now I know from reading GHOst's posts that he has excluded KB4074852 and I don't see it under Add or Remove Programs, so if its not that patch what else could it be? I can scan under Windows 7 but not XP since the August patch. Also reinstalled the whole .Net package to see if that helped, nope. Thank you in advance. Regards, Gary. Cape Town.
  10. This process does exist with some situations even in previous versions of Windows. I can recall at least one RAID card that needed this unmount/remount process.. mostly because it used a dummy driver. Also any INFs that needed the KMDF/UMDF update would need that MSU added first, unmount/remount and then you could add the INF. The only page I know is on the Catalog site, but it does not show pre-requisites there. Only succeed/supercede KBs.

    Error 0cx000007b On Game Launch

    I have some doubt that the program would be able to find the files in the Skype folder. A program usually has a very limited search path when trying to find files: its specified working directory, c:\windows, c:\windows\system32, and any other path/environment variable specifically set by the developer. If installing the 64bit version of that redist doesn't solve that issue, you can manually put the correct files into the program's working directory.

    ThinkPad Can't Connect to School Interent

    Well I brought a Q4OS Live CD to the school with me. Q4OS is able to connect to the network just fine. So it's not a hardware problem. I'm planning to install Q4OS in a dual boot, but If anybody knows of another solution or a third party wireless client I could test, it would be most welcome.

    win98se mouse too fast

    I just remembered that Win9x USB mouse behaviour differ between different USB mice! I had one when it worked fine, and other that was acting strangely. So it might be a problem of the mouse itself. Enable USB Legacy Support and PS/2 Emulator (if there is an option like that) in your BIOS.

    Error 0cx000007b On Game Launch

    If you installed the app before the x64 runtimes, the installer must have searched for and (incorrectly) found the x86 runtimes. If so, uninstall then reinstall the app. Find all locations of both the x86 and x64 runtimes. Search the Registry (especially KnownDlls, App Paths, and PATH) and the app's data files for references to any of those locations. Load the app into Depends and go to the Option->Module Search Order dialog. Experiment and report findings.
  19. For the file itself, you could visit https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/help/975599/stop-error-when-you-put-a-computer-that-is-running-windows-7-or-window then look near the top of the page for the link text "Hotfix Download Available", click that; there will be a page where you can mark the checkbox for the version you want (x86), then give an email address. The site will then email you a download link to click. When you have the download you can use 7-zip or similar to extract the file. As for the custom installer, you would have to ask Dibya, you could try sending him a PM.
  20. It only does not go away in experimental builds. There is no experimental build right now, it is a stable build.

    Official - Windows 10 Worst Crap Ever!

    At the resale shop people donated a lot of those $300 PCs that had a 12 month warranty. They would say at 13 months the unit would not power up. We couldn't make them power up either. So spend another $300 to get another piece of crap that lasts a year. Cheap crap that comes with Windows 10, double crap. However, someone donated a Dell Latitude laptop of the $2,000 vintage. The software, Windows 10 just quit working, so they got rid of the PC. That was a great piece of hardware that I bought for $40. Put an SSD in it and now it is the Windows 7 Pro work station here. Not all Windows products are crap. But I suppose that you can buy a $2,000 PC for $40 in a resale shop there, too. But the iMac is still the work horse computer with both Microsoft and Apple software running on it. And with no design software used at all.

    Official - Windows 10 Worst Crap Ever!

    Then again, it's perfect for reading chinese or mongol wall newspapers in .pdf, while standing in the kitchen, of course!
  26. So since I had Hyper-V installed, I ran the tool: with it installed, during uninstallation (pre-reboot) after uninstallation (post-reboot) and redirected the output to *.txt files. It seems the information only changed only after/post-reboot. The results: Hyper-V Installed SystemDrive C: ZCH0BNA6, Machine ID: Q6UMOMLTPOG3ELI4MW7CLSCFGFULMBADAYLEKOMILLAVPRLA PhysicalDrive0: ZCH0BNA6, Machine ID: Q6UMOMLTPOG3ELI4MW7CLSCFGFULMBADAYLEKOMILLAVPRLA PhysicalDrive1: NA7H1LE8, Machine ID: MZQ3IJLCPOG3ELI4IXO3LQMBGFULMBADQXLFZ6EILLAVPRLA result: 2 Hyper-V Not Installed SystemDrive C: ZCH0BNA6, Machine ID: Q6UMOMLT2XAY6L2IMW7CLSCF6VLLL3C3AYLEKOMIBL7FXUEQ PhysicalDrive0: ZCH0BNA6, Machine ID: Q6UMOMLT2XAY6L2IMW7CLSCF6VLLL3C3AYLEKOMIBL7FXUEQ PhysicalDrive1: NA7H1LE8, Machine ID: MZQ3IJLC2XAY6L2IIXO3LQMB6VLLL3C3QXLFZ6EIBL7FXUEQ result: 2 Thanks again, and please let me know if you need anything else
