  • After reinstalling VISTA and check. The audit says that the code is in use. How do I overcome this?

    I bought a computer from PCSecialist in 2007. The computer has been painful, I have reinstalled several times, but this time I can not check the program.

    If you hear that the check indicates you that... product key is in use.

    Then, you need to activate Vista by phone. Use this tutorial...

    Pay attention to step 2: how to do a phone Activation.
    Note: If the activation service informs you that she has failed and cannot help with activation, then STAY ON THE LINE and your call will be transferred to an operator of activation which will help you to activate your copy of Vista.

    If you can not always activate Vista, repost to install, upgrade and activate forum:

  • What I would do, my computer has so many unwanted programs, is to reinstall Vista and not all HP programs that I don't want.

    What I would do, my computer has so many unwanted programs, is to reinstall Vista and not all HP programs that I don't want.  It seems to make the computer too slow.  I don't have a Vista disc, only the recovery CD I did in the beginning. Can I recover and just reinstall Vista, or should I get back it?
    Thank you
    Bill

    original title: recovery

    If your "Vista recovery disc" is provided by the manufacturer of your computer, be it Dell, Gateway, Hewlett-Packard, etc... Then chances are he's doing a thing. Completely format your hard drive and restores your computer to the day you brought it home. It's a major nuisance for many people these days, as if you have an error and Windows says 'Please insert the Vista CD to fix it Windows' well, you do not HAVE the CD to correct the error. Your only option is a complete erasure of all data.

    So, my advice is to avoid ever NEED to use the recovery CD, and if you don't... hope you have backups of your important data (which is another thing, backup your important data often!).

  • After reinstalling vista and get the updates, I've "lost" more than 10 GB on my hard drive

    can anyone help? After reinstalling vista and by then setting automatic updates, I find after the download and installation of updates that I "lost" more than 10 GB on my drive hard, why is that?

    Updates must be stored somewhere, and installed somewhere 10 GIG is in the normal range.  Did you do a disk cleanup?

    have you saved or set a restore point?  It has been a decade since I used Vista, but I think that any time you install something made Vista a restore point.

    Hi dynamitenews

     

    1. are you able to boot to the desktop?
    2. what happens when you try to start the computer?

     

    You must have the DVD drive to start the computer using the disk, you cannot use the external hard drive to do the same thing.

    Also I suggest you to make sure you have defined the start as CD/DVD-Rom as the first choice option in the BIOS. See below the help link-
    http://Windows.Microsoft.com/en-us/Windows7/BIOS-frequently-asked-questions

    If nothing is done, then you can contact the manufacturer support for assistance on setting up the correct boot sequence and check.

    BIOS WARNING-
    Change (CMOS) BIOS/complementary metal oxide semiconductor settings can cause serious problems that may prevent your computer from starting properly. Microsoft cannot guarantee that problems resulting from the configuration of the BIOS/CMOS settings can be solved. Changes to settings are at your own risk.

  • How can I access my emails after the death of my PC. I had a pc using Windows Vista and I served my Windows Mail e-mail program.

    Disaster of Windows Mail.  Where are my emails please?

    How can I access my emails after the death of my PC. I had a pc using Windows Vista and I served my Windows Mail e-mail program.  The computer has stopped working so I removed the hard drive, put it in a case and now use it as an external drive.  My new computer, I took possession of the Documents and Settings folder, and I'm looking for emails.  I followed the path, Documents and Settings / / AppData / Local / Microsoft / Windows Mail but there are 2 folders, backup & stationery as well as a few small files.  Where I could hide my email? Please, I beg you.

    There should be a directory called local folders under the message store and eml files organized into folders named after the directories under this directory are.  They may be hidden files, so make sure that you have enabled the display of hidden files and folders under control panel | Folder options | View.  You can also try to search *.eml, because messages are stored as eml files.  See www.oehelp.com/backup.aspx#wm for background.

  • R12: Copy a group of companies with configurations, metadata and data in the same instance of OA

    The idea was born to a very common condition between the companies IT. pre-sales and pro-ventes groups do various tasks, including the response of the RPF/RFI, PoC, building, Solution architecture, customer demo etc. Ususally they do not have the dedicated application instances, or rather they do not find a sufficient number of cases of applications dedicated to deep study of the road. Every other day a group cries out for an Apps instance and the same gets lift for senior management in short time. It gives a lot of pain to the infrastructure/DBA groups because they fail to meet people like them, due to the limited availability of free nodes, resources, networks and space etc.

    I have a Vision of the R12.1.3 (tell SID = VIS1213) installed on a Linux machine. The box is quite busy with his hearts limited, showing little free memory and the attached SAN has insufficient free space remaining. A group of Oracle Apps pre-sales consultants, says "Group 1", is the use of this.»

    Now the 3 other groups are asking for a R12.1.3 Vision instance separately for different reasons below. Each of them wants the instance again and do not share with others.

    Group 2 for deep study of the road against a critical response to RFP
    Group-3 for the development of a point of contact for a customer demo
    Group 4 for the manufacture of PUK media on some business processes

    In this scenario, I should install 3 distinct Vision of R12.1.3 (using CDs or downloaded zip) or clone VIS1213 in 3 different places with different SIDS, possibly on one or more separated nodes (as above Linux node has insufficient free resources). In this case, the need for available server resources and disk space multiplied by 3, so that DBA maintenance for these 3 new instances is added.

    Hope that I have clear air up to this point.

    Then I was thinking if we have "virtual instances" within an existing instance of Apps, by copying from a vertain org level. First I thought I'd take THE level, but it will not work if an instance of group to work with HRMS claims. We must therefore take business group level. After that we will create the appropriate role and responsibility, user profile options so that the new user can see and work on the new BG and data area down only. It will be like a separate instance to use.
    Benefits of my desired task will be

    -no separate server resource, the required network
    -no additional DBA not involved maintenance
    -no separate required backup plan

    So here it is to create 3 new "virtual instances" right within the same instance of VIS1213. New groups will have same URL, same existing TNS details but 3 credentials different existing access. Each of them would be limited in a way so that they can not see each and other data and can not hurt each and other changes.

    This can be achieved if we can copy an existing group of its activities with org structures, metadata and data, within the same instance. Oralce planning cannot be copied within the same instance configurations.

    What I've done so far was I manually created a new BG, attached an existing sobbing (CoA, Agenda / currency), created a new, copied and modified accounting structure flexfields before fixing, created the new ORGANIZATIONAL unit, and then a new InvOrg of master and a new InvOrg clild, defined the profile MO some GL and HR profiles. Then I extracted finished master and data assignment article category Masters against a master/child existing InvOrg, updated the data for newly created InvOrgs, inserted into tables insterface and ran seeded import conc program element. Except for a few, all data have been loaded into base against new InvOrgs tables.

    Then I tried with master provider (with sites and contacts). A few AP configurations are required, and then data provider (+ contact + site) have been loaded against OR newly created (under new BG) base tables.

    I do not proceed after that. I'm currently looking for ideas from the experts on how to go further.

    Planning is able to create this kind of 'virtual instance' within the same instance of OSTEOARTHRITIS?

    PL nowadays return.
