How to install Legacy Photoshop 7 on windows 10

Regarding the OP’s problem, it appears the installer exe requires to use resources held by other processes. For me it was Skype and Logitech wireless mouse software.

To work out what is “blocking” the installer:

  • start  task manager, you’ll see setup.exe running as a background process but consuming no CPU cycles.
  • click on the “Details” tab in task manager
  • scroll down to setup.exe, right click on it and select “Analyse wait chain”
  • close the program / end the process which setup is waiting on

You may have to repeat steps 3 & 4 if there are multiple contentions. For me once I killed Skype & Logitech processes the installer popped up instantly. Also I ran setup.exe as administrator

Converting laptop into a wifi router

Well, first assuming, that the laptop has 2 NIC- one with an ethernet port for wired and the other- of course the Wifi ethernet (without this presume this content won’t exist otherwise 😉 )

Now, the next thing- either you get internet from the wired port or to be in some case, you may connect your android phone as wireless tethering and connect through mobile data service. Whatever the case- you basically got 2 interface for setting up the router- the WAN (either the wired or the mobile tethered connection) and the LAN- the wifi ethernet.

This document works good on Windows 7 and 8 (I didn’t test other editions of windows- hope they support too) Continue reading “Converting laptop into a wifi router” »

Please make sure before this installation, you will need 2 identical hard disk with same space connected to the server. But the truth is, you don’t need to same hard disk with the same space amount, but as long as you partitioned the space equally then it would be good as well. But for beginner, it is better to get a hard disk that got the same space quantity, less percentage that you would get yourself confused.
Below are the steps on how to enable the Software RAID inside Windows Server 2003:

Replacing the default (self signed) certificate on a RD Session Host server

Many times I wanted to get rid of that annoying certificate warning message when I make a RDP connection to a RD Session Host server or a workstation. If you are using RDP inside an Active Directory network, the warning is gone, because the connection is using kerberos for security, but if you are connecting from outside to the inside, well…you will be prompted to accept the server certificate, and this is because the certificate is self signed and is not trusted. The following method works for clients OS (Win XP, Vista,7) too, not just for RD Session Host servers.

To install a trusted certificate I will use a script that I found on Microsoft technet. For this guide an Enterprise Internal CA will issue the certificates since is cheaper and much easy to work with, but if you have a lot of external clients a commercial certificate is recommended. To start we need to request and install a certificate on the local computer store on the RD Session Host server. For that open the Certificates Store console (Start > Run > mmc), select Certificates and click the Add button. On the wizard that just popped-up choose Computer Account > Local Computer.
