Re: Competition

Just a heads-up. I was in on d7 at its beginnings and, around the time they switched the name to d7x, the support went to total crap. The forums were basically abandoned and, the rare time someone poked their nose in, they were banning people calling that out.

Re: Software updater

Until WAU includes this, for my little residential RMM clients, I drop PatchMyPC in my hidden folder and use its Settings to set it to run as a scheduled task every few days. It doesn't update everything out there but it's got a decent list - most of the stuff my clients use at any rate.

Re: All in one portable

Use WinRar to create an SFX file with them in it, and then set it to launch the exe upon unpacking.

Re: <KillNonCriticalProcesses>and/or <KillNonTrustedProcesses> Exceptions for remote work

Sebastian, Fred IS the support/developer of this software.

Do you know where you are on the internet?

Ahhh, you added text to my quote to make it look like I made that statement. Yeah, you're just a spammer and you're reported.

Re: UVK Portable Custom Apps Issue

Hi, Fred. I hadn't even noticed that option had been added in the last while but checked it out today. I'm getting the same thing. Tried adding a simple DOS command to the More section and am unable to edit it once it's been entered. I also cannot Delete it in order to try re-entering the command. A...

Re: Could you maybe prompt the user instead of making assumptions?

You are making some pretty bold assumptions about how I want to go about handling the locked files/folders that I input into the program, and I don't appreciate it. That's not an assumption -- at that point, you had already asked UVK to delete those files. Deliberately and on purpose; "that I ...

Re: WAU / MRS ... hybrid? Update/reboot/repeat til done

Honestly hadn't considered a script as I figured the reboots would cancel out the process.

What are you thinking? A script that would run MUA, wait a set amount of time, reboot, and repeat those steps several times? Would it be able to persist over reboots?

WAU / MRS ... hybrid? Update/reboot/repeat til done

I used to use WSUS Offline Updater but, with all the lockdowns and doing a lot more remote work, that's no longer practical. I've thought a bunch of times about asking for this and even thought I had but I'll put it down now.... I've got a few clients that don't turn their PCs on for weeks or even m...

Re: Rebootexec - could it run the watermark without the parameter?

How is it that I've tried running it a bunch of times and I've never seen that window? Tried it again on two PCs and it didn't show a window. I've run MRS and APF on different machines as portable apps, copying over no other files and they've never complained that Rebootexec was not present. Do you ...

Rebootexec - could it run the watermark without the parameter?

I thought I'd use it for remote jobs - send it over for its 'at a glance' info but it seems to need to be run with a "-desktopwatermark" parameter. But it doesn't seem to do anything when called without any parameters (I'm assuming it has other functions). Could the watermark usage be its ...

WAU Manager -- no notifications?

The 'quietest' option is "Show Notifications Only" but how about a completely-silent option? Oh, and since MS puts out most updates on the second Tuesday of the month, could that be some kind of an option in the scheduling? I could set it for this coming Tuesday (2nd of month) but if I set...

Account Profile Fixer -- mostly worked...?

Laptop with a flawed hard drive which I'll replace tomorrow. While it's still booting (but sooo slow), thought I'd try to fix the software-level stuff I see so that the cloning will copy a better version of Windows. Start Menu is glitched with the "critical error - sign out and we'll fix it&quo...

Re: Un-Hide User Accounts on the Windows Login Screen

This is one reason why I usually offer to set up my clients for remote support. In this instance, I'd still be able to use cmd lines in the background and use a Net User command here. I could use things like RegQuery/etc cmds as well if necessary. I'm lucky, though, that I bought into Screenconnect ...

Re: KB4532693 update breaking user profile

KB4537821 for Win8 has a similar effect. Thought the first was a regular glitch until I had another one a few days later.

Minor UVKSR thing - Sticky Notes

I've gotten in the habit of using Sticky Notes for things that I want to remember to tell the client ("run the printer-install shortcut when you get home", HD has 5700hrs of use on it, etc.) As sort of mini-report. Since most PCs I'm seeing are Win10, I have Command 1 as explorer.exe shell...
