November 9, 2023 at 8:31 am in reply to: The Kerberos Client Received A KRB_AP_ERR_MODIFIED Error From The Server #2486
Today I had the Kerberos client received a KRB_AP_ERR_MODIFIED error from the server issue again with a different computer. Sure enough, I logged onto the DNS server and there were two A records with different computer names but the same IP address. I guess this might be related, given my previous experience listed in the post above, so I deleted the record with the matching IP address. Hopefully that fixes it. I’ll update this post or add a new one if the problem comes back.October 10, 2023 at 8:33 am in reply to: The Name Domain 1d Could Not Be Registered On The Interface With IP Address 192. #2478
Details of the event in the event log are:
Event Log: System
Event ID: 4321
Error text: The name “<

I should probably say that the above suggestions assume that you can’t boot at all, rather than the operating system being booted into then failing to start. An error you might get after updating the BIOS might say something along the lines of:
Unable to find operating system on this disk.
If your computer starts to boot into Windows then fails, that’s probably a different probably.December 16, 2022 at 6:48 pm in reply to: I have To Boot To The Bios Every Time I Turn My Computer On #2465
If your computer forces you to go to the BIOS every time you turn it on, especially when it’s had the power turned off for a while, that’s because the BIOS battery is not charging.
The BIOS battery is a disk shaped battery that’s about the size of a watch face and is connected to the motherboard inside the computer. The BIOS battery is used to save various BIOS settings while the computer is disconnected from an electricity source (mains power), settings which change over time… such as the computer clock.
Changing the BIOS battery will stop the computer from forcing you to boot into the BIOS each time you start the computer.
An Explanation Of The 255 Character Limit
I thought I might do a follow up post explaining XCOPY’s 255 character limit that results in the Insufficient memory error. The following file path has 24 characters:
This is because “C:\” has 3 characters:
C : \
1 2 3
“Folder\” has 7 characters:
F o l d e r \
1 2 3 4 5 6 7
An example of a directory that’s over 255 characters that would trigger XCOPY to report that there’s insufficent memory is:
The above file path has 259 characters and therefore cannot be copied with XCOPY and will return an Insufficient memory error.
I installed Office 2000 with the disk and couldn’t find the MSI. So I ran the following against the setup.exe:
This seems to have done a per machine install because when I ran it without ALLUSERS=1, it asked me for a username… Looks promising.April 27, 2018 at 7:26 am in reply to: Current Processor Architecture is X86. The Module Requires AMD64 – PowerShell #2360
Is this some c# code you’re writing or something?
I’m not much of a programmer, but maybe you could look up compiler options for Amd64 architecture, or see if there’s a 64bit object you can create and use? Or perhaps you can call the ise and run it through that?
I’d love to know what you are trying to achieve 😀March 15, 2018 at 4:59 pm in reply to: InstallScript Setup Launcher Unicode Has Stopped Working #2338
Some computers didn’t work with compatibility mode (others with the InstallScript Setup Launcher Unicode has stopped working error did). I found that since the InstallScript Setup Launcher error occurred while doing the prescan, turning prescan off seemed to work.
I’ve tested option one, and it seems to show a different user interface when you launch the installer this way. It removes the option to enter a user name, which I think looks promising.
UPDATE: After the install completed with the /ALLUSERS=1 parameter, it hadn’t finished installing Office. Instead, it seems to have created an install at the location I specified. I then ran setup.exe from this location. Hopefully this will work.
❗ Note: vCenter uses port 88, which seems to be a common issue causing the TCP ports required by Active Directory Domain Services are already in use on this computer error. Otherwise, as stated above, you can find out what port is used using the netstat command.November 28, 2017 at 9:42 am in reply to: Stuck On Installing NVidia Share – GForce Experience #2278
I see that others on the internet managed to stop their GeForce Experience software from getting stuck installing updates by running it as Administrator, but I managed to fix mine by restarting the computer. I say fix, actually the driver still doesn’t work. Seems like even updating it manually by downloading the driver from the internet doesn’t work. 🙁
I’ve just got the driver from here: https://www.gigabyte.com/Motherboard/X399-AORUS-Gaming-7-rev-10#support-dlNovember 5, 2017 at 1:45 pm in reply to: Network Adapter PCI\VEN_14E4&DEV_43A0&SUBSYS_061914E4&REV_03 #2267
I thought I’d be helpful and install the driver in the link I gave. After installing, my network card wasn’t updated, so I went to update it and set it to search my hard drive for an update (prior to installing from the CD there was no driver available), after installing the driver and searching the C: drive, it found a new driver and updated my Network Adapter, so I’d say that link to the driver software is probably the right one.October 27, 2017 at 7:37 am in reply to: A Delegation For This DNS Server Cannot Be Created – Windows Server 2012 R2 #2263
If you get the delegation for this DNS server cannot be created error, you might want to double check that there’s a record for your domain name pointing to the IP address of the server you just promoted to a DC.
Thought I’d just do an update to my review of Trend Micro’s Web Reputation software.
Basically, after using it for a year and a half, I can quite comfortably say that it’s terrible. It would be adequate for some uses as my former review stated, were it not for the fact that half the time the URL whitelisting system doesn’t work.
I highly DON’T recommend it.
