Active questions tagged windows - Super User most recent 30 from 2019-06-19T07:46:03Z 0 Log out from admin as non-admin Grumpy ol' Bear 2019-06-19T07:15:23Z 2019-06-19T07:15:23Z <p>I logged into a PC as Admin to take out some user's local admin privileges, and that was that.</p> <p>Only...I forgot to log out as Admin. Now the user's about 1000 miles away and can't do anything. Can't use "other account" because he's not in our domain, can't get into our domain, because he needs a VPN for that. Can't start a VPN because it's behind the login page.</p> <p>Now what? How can the user force change account to his own account?</p> 0 AutoHotkey Keyboard Shortcuts Not Captured When Certain Programs Are Focused Nimble 2019-06-19T04:29:53Z 2019-06-19T06:19:04Z <p>I have a very simple AutoHotkey script that listens for certain key presses to run Windows Shortcut files (lnk):</p> <pre><code>F21:: Run "C:\Users\djcim\Google Drive\Powershell Scripts\Admin Shortcuts\djcim\StartOBS.lnk" Return F22:: Run "C:\Users\djcim\Google Drive\Powershell Scripts\Admin Shortcuts\djcim\StopOBS.lnk" Return </code></pre> <p>It seems to capture the key presses in most situations, however when I have certain programs focused like OBS or VSCode nothing happens.</p> <p>Are these programs somehow blocking AutoHotkey from capturing these key presses? I have verified that neither of these programs are using F21 or F22 for shortcuts in program.</p> 0 Failure to install windows version of JAGS Lijin Zhang 2019-06-19T05:35:26Z 2019-06-19T05:52:44Z <p>I downloaded the open source JAGS software from the official website and installed it on my win10 64-bit computer.But it always failed. </p> <p>The JAGS-terminial.exe shows error: </p> <p>Loading module: basemod: No specified module was found.</p> <p>Loading module: bugs: No specified module was found.</p> <p>But in the module folder, 'basemod.dll','basemod.dll.a','basemod.a','bugs.dll','bugs.dll.a' and 'bugs.a' exist.</p> <p>I don't understand why this error occurs, whether I install it on the default C disk or in a custom folder, it can't be solved. </p> <p>My english is not good enough, I hope you can forgive my mistakes.

(Using registry) user1051593 2019-06-18T20:51:07Z 2019-06-19T04:57:29Z <p>I can't change the permissions of the installer using folders and I thought I could use the registry and search for permissions. So far, I came upon:</p> <pre><code>HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\ControlSet001\Services\bam\UserSettings\XXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXX </code></pre> <p>It looked promising to me, but when I try and see the values, all I see is what looks like a MAC address and some values, mostly zero-zeros. </p> <p>Is there something significant I'm missing? Is there perhaps an easier way to prevent it from scanning my PC? All I find online is some stuff about windows privacy, which only affects windows apps and are no use to me.</p> 1 Windows 10: How to boot straight to desktop without ever seeing the "logging you now in" screen? Sam 2016-07-31T12:35:25Z 2019-06-19T02:02:15Z <p>How to boot <em>STRAIGHT</em> to the desktop on Windows 10 WITHOUT ever seeing the "Logging you now in" screen?</p> <p>This <a href="" rel="nofollow noreferrer">link</a> removes the necessity for the password authenticication (check!)<br> This <a href="" rel="nofollow noreferrer">link</a> for Win8 disables showing the login (check! but nothing changes on Win10!)</p> <p>When Windows 10 boots, I still see twice (2 second counts) showing the login screen once (static background below) then automatically logging me in with the round "in progresss" circle dots animation. </p> <p>That means screen fading effect from black "dos" into this useless screen, then fade out, and fading back in to the loading of the destop which all togeher takes 2 seconds and oh so ugly.</p> <p>How to bypass seeing the login screens all together and going straight from the black dos screen to the desktop?</p> <p>Bottom line: I don't want to ever see the logging screen during post! But how? Any ideas or suggestions are welcome and highly appreciated. PS I dont want to use hacky third party programs, just in-Windows-10-solutions please that are safe and built in.</p> <h2><a href="" rel="nofollow noreferrer"><img src="" alt="enter image description here"></a></h2> <p><em>Before you start complaining about duplicate post, do your research!<br> Entirely different <a href="">topic</a> about the start menu<br> Entirely different <a href="">topic</a> for Windows 8 about skipping the GUI tiles</em><br> <strong><em>Nothing I have found online has solved my question!</em></strong></p> 0 Native (non-electron) git clients for Windows martixy 2019-06-19T01:11:04Z 2019-06-19T01:11:04Z <p>Did a windows reinstall recently and been re-evaluating my software choices.

I downloaded the ISO for Windows 10 from Microsoft's website and wrote it on to a flash drive using <code>dd</code>. (I'm currently running Fedora 23, so I can't use the media creation tool.) On boot I get this error:</p> <pre><b>Windows Boot Manager</b> Windows failed to start. A recent hardware or software change might be the cause. To fix the problem: 1. Insert your Windows installation disc and restart your computer. 2. Choose your language settings, and then click “Next.” 3. Click “Repair your computer.” If you do not have this disc, contact your system administrator or contact your manufacturer for assistance. File: \Boot\BCD Status: 0xc0000225 Info: The Boot Configuration Data for your PC is missing or contains errors.</pre> <p>I've also tried to use a different flash drive and a different live OS. I have a feeling It might have something to do with the fact that I only have USB 3.0 ports on my machine. @Ramhound said this shouldn't matter but it's the only thing I can think of. If this is the case will buying a USB 3 flash drive solve the issue or will I just be able to do something in the BIOS to the USB controller?</p> 0 After installing ubuntu 19.04, Windows 10 doesn't boot anymore Saverio 2019-06-18T18:54:36Z 2019-06-18T21:49:08Z <p>I've recently installed ubuntu 19.04 in dual boot with windows 10 (both in UEFI). GRUB recognizes windows, but when I choose the option "Windows Boot Manager" the windows logo and the loading animation appear only for a few seconds, then the computer reboots, bringing me back to grub selection menu. I tried many things, including sudo <code>update-grub</code> and using <code>boot-repair</code>, but none of them worked. Here is the log for boot-repair, if that helps: <a href="" rel="nofollow noreferrer"></a> (I also have a 2tb hard drive as a secondary drive for data, but I use only one 240gb ssd for the operating systems).</p> <p>The windows partition is still accessible through the file manager in Ubuntu.

The question and solution reference "pdfinfo.exe" and "pdfinfo". When I research this, it looks like it should be packaged in some versions of PowerShell but not others. On my machine, the command is not recognized. How might I get this package without downloading a corrupt or malicious file? I am trying to get a total page count of multiple pdf files within a folder structure.</p> <p>I am using Windows 10 and Powershell / ISE version 5.1.17763.503</p> <p>Thanks!</p> 2 enable Google Chrome policies otherwise only available with Active Directory William 2019-06-11T12:39:40Z 2019-06-18T20:11:35Z <p>There are a number of settings for Google Chrome which are applied as "policies". Under the hood, these are registry entries, typically located at <code>HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Policies\Google\Chrome</code>. These policies are nominally designed to be enabled by Group Policy in an Active Directory environment (using ADM or ADMX files). Many of them work whether the computer is joined to a domain or not; presumably Chrome is just reading the registry value.</p> <p>However, some policies only work when the computer is joined to Active Directory or "or Windows 10 Pro or Enterprise instances that enrolled for device management" (see <a href="" rel="nofollow noreferrer">link</a>). Since the policy configuration values are ultimately just registry entries, then Chrome <strong>must be going out of its way</strong> to check if the computer is in Active Directory.</p> <p>What I want to know, is there a way to deceive Chrome about the computer's Active Directory membership, or some way to otherwise convince Chrome to honor these policies regardless?</p> 5 How to force the deletion of a locked file that has no locking handle on Windows? J. Doe 2016-10-16T19:25:39Z 2019-06-18T19:51:54Z <p>When I try to delete the file, using the GUI it says </p> <blockquote> <p>The action cannot be completed because the file is open in another program</p> </blockquote> <p>And using the <code>del /f /q</code> command line it says</p> <blockquote> <p>Access is denied</p> </blockquote> <p>I have tried unlocking the file with Unlocker, as well as trying to locate which process is using the file with the Resource Monitor or the Process Explorer, but no locking handle was found in either case.</p> <p>I am able to rename or move the file, but not to delete it or change its content.</p> 0 Uploads only work when using company's network connection [on hold] Ayoub Zemouri 2019-06-18T17:05:32Z 2019-06-18T19:20:27Z <p>We have a website with a normal PHP upload code that used to work fine, but now it only works when we connect from the company's network.

And because of the position of my GPU, I could only have the 2 hard drives plugged in, not the Blu-ray RE drive. So I had to clone the drive from within Windows 8.1. I know newer Windows create 2 partitions when installing from scratch, but the program I used (which was one recommended in a tutorial, can't remember its name but will add it when I do) could only clone one partition, and so I cloned the bigger partition. It used a "shadow copy". Of course it wouldn't boot. So I ran startup repair from my installation disk and it booted. But, my picture password was gone, all images were gone, I switched to password and entered my password. It showed "Preparing Windows" or something similar for a few minutes. Then it went to a black screen with pointer. No desktop or anything. Pressing CTRL + Del and choosing Task Manager also did nothing. Does anyone have any idea as to what to do to make it boot normally?</p> 153 How to prove the authenticity of a screenshot? Optimus 2015-12-07T14:28:42Z 2019-06-18T16:52:53Z <p>I have take some screenshots of chat from <a href="">Whatsapp web</a> using <em>Windows 8 Snipping Tool</em>. I saved those images in PNG format.</p> <p>Now I want to prove that those images are the original, not tampered or edited. </p> <p>Can you please let me know how can I prove that?</p> 18 How to find the build / version of Windows 10 Brian Lewis 2015-08-17T17:55:37Z 2019-06-18T16:27:58Z <p>During the beta of Windows 10 it was hard know what version you were running unless it had it posted to the desktop. Once that wasn't there - how do you tell what version / build you are running? </p> <p>This will become more of an issue as Microsoft starts releasing more builds with the new update mechanism. </p> -1 How do I synchronize a video playback while recording audio at the same time? Aivan Monceller 2019-06-18T15:44:59Z 2019-06-18T16:06:38Z <p>I want to sing along with a video , I know I can just convert the video to an audio file and use it as an audio track on a multitrack software. </p> <p>However before I do that I want to be able to see the lyrics on the video while. So I want the video playing while a separate track is recording. </p> 8 Can't run File Explorer as different user binaryfunt 2016-09-22T10:58:33Z 2019-06-18T15:24:29Z <p>Following on from <a href="">this question about opening file explorer as a different user</a>, I've tried navigating to <code>C:\Windows</code>, shift+right-clicking <code>explorer.exe</code> and clicking "Run as different user". When I enter the login details of the user, I get 2 successive error messages, both of which say</p> <blockquote> <p>Windows cannot access the specified device, path or file. You may not have the appropriate permissions to access the item</p> </blockquote> <p>If I try the login details of the account that's currently logged in, it works, but the other doesn't. This is the case for both accounts (admins) on my PC.</p> <p><strong>Edit</strong></p> <p>There has been some confusion in the comments. <strong>I'm trying to follow the accepted answer in the question linked above</strong>, and it's not working. Some people are saying it can't be done, so it's odd that there is an accepted answer with 3 upvotes</p> -2 Is it possible to install F# on Windows XP? Gerardo Zinno 2019-06-18T01:10:24Z 2019-06-18T15:16:57Z <p>For my "Interface Programming" exam at the university I must bring a project in F# with Windows Forms (it's mandatory, I can't use another framework or language). The problem is that I have a Mac. I already tried running F# and Windows Forms with Mono, but it doesn't work well (or at all). I also tried to partition the hard drive and install Windows, but I ran into some problems and cannot partition the drive.</p> <p>My Mac is not powerful enough to run Windows 10 inside a virtual machine, so I was wondering if it is possible to run F# and Windows Forms on Windows XP inside a VM.</p> <p>If you have other suggestions I'm all ears.</p> 0 Netstat showing IPs not in our internal range - security issue?

They are broken in a very specific way:</p> <ul> <li>The items show up, but clicking them does nothing (clicking dismisses the jump list, but does not open the corresponding app)</li> <li>None of the items show a context menu when right-clicked (an empty gray box appears, as if an empty context menu appeared)</li> <li>Jump lists and the context menus work in safe mode</li> </ul> <p>My problem is very similar (if not identical) to the one described in <a href="">Windows 10 Taskbar JumpList Issue, Not working</a> and in <a href="">Taskbar &gt; File Explorer &gt; Context Menu failing me</a> and in the related <a href="" rel="nofollow noreferrer">Reddit post</a> and in the <a href="" rel="nofollow noreferrer">related forum post</a>. However, I have more information on the potential cause and more attempted solutions.</p> <p>There are also two related posts on Microsoft Answers: <a href="" rel="nofollow noreferrer">related post on Microsoft Answers</a> and <a href="" rel="nofollow noreferrer">the other related post</a>, but none of the solutions worked for me (or for the original posters).</p> <p>I noticed this in Anniversary Update, after updating Visual Studio. Then, I updated to April Update, which fixed the issue. Now, I updated Visual Studio (from 15.6 to 15.7) and it is broken again. The jump lists are broken on both the taskbar and start menu, and they are broken for all apps (both desktop and store).</p> <p>Things I tried:</p> <ul> <li>Deleting all files from the <code>AutomaticDestinations</code> directory</li> <li>Deleting some files from the <code>AutomaticDestinations</code> directory</li> <li>Resetting jump lists from settings</li> <li>Reinstalling all Store apps with a PowerShell script</li> <li>Running <code>sfc /scannow</code></li> <li>Running <code>dism</code> with restore health option</li> <li>Pinning items</li> <li>Restarting the computer</li> <li>Restarting in safe mode and then restarting again</li> <li>Disabling Internet Explorer</li> <li>Using the Start Menu troubleshooter: It finds corruptions, but does not apply a fix</li> <li>Copying <code>TileDataLayer</code> folder from different computers and then repairing</li> <li>Creating a new user account (this also does not work)</li> <li>Repairing Visual Studio (it just made Visual Studio slower)</li> <li>Restoring the original <code>AppData</code> folder location and creating a junction point to it from the other partition</li> <li>Removing all junction points related to Visual Studio</li> <li>Completely removing all versions of Visual Studio and fresh installing Visual Studio 2017</li> <li>Installing April Update</li> <li>Installing October Update</li> <li>Using the <code>ShellExView</code> to disable all shell extensions with <code>Context Menu</code> flag and all shell extensions whose <code>File Created</code> time and <code>CLSID Modified Time</code> was after the problems started occurring</li> <li>Running the recommended script <code>Get-AppXPackage -AllUsers | Foreach {Add-AppxPackage -DisableDevelopmentMode -Register "$($_.InstallLocation)\AppXManifest.xml"}</code> which helps fix similar problems</li> <li>Posting an issue on the Visual Studio feedback site and through the Feedback Hub application and waiting for a fix</li> <li>Removing all CD/DVD mounting software</li> <li>Turning jump lists on and off in the Settings</li> <li>Setting the <code>JumpListItems_Maximum</code> in the registry</li> <li>Using <code>msconfig</code> to test different startup configurations (disabling all non-Microsoft services – jump lists do not work, diagnostic startup – jump lists do not work; safe-mode – jump lists work)</li> <li>Disabling OneDrive (both in startup and from Group Policy) – interestingly, the items that are opened from OneDrive do work; but all other items do not (both clicking and the context-menu).</li> <li>Removing all Anti-Virus software</li> </ul> <p>I have some junction points on my C: drive (all in <code>Program Files</code> and <code>ProgramData</code>).</p> <p>It also seems that Cortana shortcut button (<kbd>WinKey</kbd>+<kbd>C</kbd>) gets broken whenever jump lists are broken (which is usually within a few days after repair installing Windows 10).</p> <p>Can anyone provide any clues or suggestions?</p> <h2>Edit 1 (After restoring the default <code>AppData</code> folder)</h2> <p>A peculiar thing happens when accessing the <code>Recent Items</code> folder: when accessed by navigating directly to it in explorer, it does not contain the <code>CustomDestinations</code> and <code>AutomaticDestinations</code> folders, but when accessed by entering the same directory into Run the folders are visible along with many items that do not appear in jump lists.</p> <h2>Edit 2 (After repairing Windows installation)</h2> <p>Even though reupdating system to April Update resolved the problem, the question remains, since the actual cause of the problem is unidentified and I expect it to happen again after another Visual Studio update.</p> <h2>Edit 3 (After a few days)</h2> <p>After about two days of working properly after doing the repair install, my jump lists are not working again. All the history items are shown, but they are again unclickable and the context-menus are empty. Obviously, doing a repair install every few days is not an option. During the few days that the jump lists worked properly, I did not install anything on my system.</p> <h2>Edit 4 (After removing Visual Studio and removing junction points)</h2> <p>After opening Visual Studio 2017 and running a UWP (Microsoft Store) app with a debugger attached, my jump lists were destroyed again.</p> <p>I decided to remove both Visual Studio 2015 and Visual Studio 2017 and reinstall Visual Studio 2017, remove all junction points I had (I had some junction points for Visual Studio installation), reinstall Visual Studio 2017 and repair install Windows. Removing Visual Studio installations and the junction points did not fix the issue. Repair installing did, as noted in the answer. However, setting up a scheduled task to reinstall Windows ever few days is really not a solution.</p> <h2>Edit 5 (After updating Visual Studio to 15.7.3)</h2> <p>The jump lists are broken again. They have been working for almost a few weeks. After Visual Studio update the jump lists show the same broken behavior.</p> <h2>Edit 6 (After updating Windows 10 to October 2018 Update)</h2> <p>Fixed for five days and then broken again. Possibly related to Visual Studio again. They seem to break when a UWP application is deployed.</p> <h2>Edit 7 (After meddling with startup configuration)</h2> <p>After trying to disable shell extensions, startup items and services, by various means (including <code>msconfig</code>, <code>ShellExView</code>, the Task Manager, the Registry Editor and the Services application), I have concluded that the only state in which the Jump Lists work is safe mode.</p> <h2>Edit 8 (After the insightful answer by Zenithies)</h2> <p>I have realized that I have many 10000, 10001 and 10016 errors in the Event Log. The 10000 and 10001 errors occur after attempting to click on a jump list item. Below are the errors.</p> <blockquote> <p>Unable to start a DCOM Server: {C82192EE-6CB5-4BC0-9EF0-FB818773790A}.</p> <p>Unable to start a DCOM Server: {9AA46009-3CE0-458A-A354-715610A075E6} as Unavailable/Unavailable.</p> <p>The application-specific permission settings do not grant Local Activation permission for the COM Server application with CLSID {2593F8B9-4EAF-457C-B68A-50F6B8EA6B54} and APPID {15C20B67-12E7-4BB6-92BB-7AFF07997402}</p> </blockquote> <p>After going through the registry, I identified one of these to be the RuntimeBroker component. I proceeded to see the corresponding component service and noticed I had duplicate entries for <code>rundll32.exe</code> and <code>RuntimeBroker</code> components similar to the <a href="" rel="nofollow noreferrer">Runtime DCOM Server appears twice</a> post. When trying to modify permissions I get the following error.</p> <blockquote> <p>One or more of the permission entries attached to Registry Value has an unrecognized type and can not be displayed.</p> </blockquote> <p>The jump list issues can be circumvented by manually calling the jump list component. However, the permission issue still exists and the cause is probably one of the Windows updates, considering that the Runtime Broker component service is duplicated and has a different ID.</p> <p>The related post has more info on this: <a href="">Unable to start a DCOM Server</a>.</p> <h2>Edit 9 (After updating Windows to 1903 and Visual Studio to 2019)</h2> <p>As with updates before, the lists were fixed for a couple of days.</p> <p>The lists are now broken again, but now a menu is shown with the text "This item is unavailable" and prompts to delete it from the list. After running the temporary fix script from Edit 8, the problem is resolved until the next shutdown. I've reported this through Feedback Hub, once again.</p> 0 Create a Batch File That Adds a DWORD Value Krauser Romanov 2019-06-17T14:37:39Z 2019-06-18T11:37:45Z <p>I'm trying to create a batch file that will add a dword value to a registry.</p> <p>So far, it works manually when I do it "REG ADD HKLM\Software\Microsoft\Office\16.0\Lync /v EnableARIATelemetryFeature /t REG_DWORD /d 0 /f"</p> <p>Can someone help me translate it to a proper batch file?</p> <p>I tried writing one:</p> <p>@Echo Off REG ADD HKLM\Software\Microsoft\Office\16.0\Lync /v EnableARIATelemetryFeature /t REG_DWORD /d 0 /f</p> <p>but nothing happens.</p> <p>Can someone help me correct my syntax?</p> <p>Thank you all for your support!</p> 16 Get official Windows XP virtual machine for Hyper-V Biswapriyo 2017-07-17T15:58:35Z 2019-06-18T11:37:35Z <p>There are many unofficial Windows XP ISO file in numerous of websites.
