  • How do I get a VPC to join the domain?

    @fabian: Thank you for your reply, it looks very promising. Where are the settings for the VM? I've brought the VM up and checked it's Network connections, but I guess it isn't there. I've gotten the properties of the Windows XP Mode, but that doesn't seem to have a networking tab either.

  • How do I get a VPC to join the domain?

    I've got a Windows 7 Ultimate box. I've downloaded and installed the Windows Virtual PC, and I want to get the Windows XP VM to join our Active Directory (Windows 2003 R2 Server). But I'm running into problems, in that the IP address of my Windows 7 machine, and the VM aren't anywhere near being the same; so as I understand it they're not even on the same network. How do I resolve this issue?

  • Would it be better to use Easy Transfer to move everything over, or just copy it across the network?

    I'm setting up a new developer box for myself here at work.  Reluctantly, I've decided to stay with Windows 7 (long story). My old box is a Windows 7 machine as well. I've installed Office, SQL Server Developer Edition and SQL Express. Now I'm working on installing the various Visual Studios we use, third party tools, etc. I have both machines in my office, and intend to keep the old one around. If you haven't used Microsoft Garage's Mouse Without Borders, I strongly recommend it, if you have 2 or more Windows machines on your desk.

    The one thing I'm not as sure about is getting all of my documents, music, etc., from the old machine onto the new one. Before I started I ran Windows Easy Transfer to create a file which I could use move that information from one machine to the other, but now I'm wondering if it would be better just to copy stuff off of my old machine onto the new on across the network. I know this is a personal preferences thing, but I'd like to know what people thing on why on this issue.

  • Is there a difference in WPF layout between Win8 and older versions of Windows?

    We're upgrading to newer development boxes at work. They came with Windows 7 on them. I had been planning on upgrading mine to Windows 8. However, this article on LinkedIn really has me concerned, because we've got to do some WPF development. Is there a difference in layout in Windows 8 vs. older versions of Windows?

  • What issues may arise, when upgrading Windows 7 to Windows 8?

    I've got Windows 7 Ultimate installed on my desktop.  I've been thinking about upgrading to Windows 8 Pro.  Since this is my development machine, there's things I'm very concerned about.  I want to do an in-place upgrade, which (as I understand it) should allow me to keep all of my applications installed, settings, etc., like Office 2010.  However, what about things like Visual Studio 2008 & 2010?  And I've got SQL Server 2008 R2 Developer Edition installed as well.  Do they come across OK, or will I encounter problems?  I'm asking because a friend of mine, who is a student and has Dream Spark, had Windows 7 with VS 2012 install, but after upgrading it to Windows 8 Pro, according to him, VS 2012 failed to work.  Other applications he had, like MalwareBytes, etc., stopped working as well.

    So, is this upgrade only sort of a partial process?

  • Will Mouse Without Borders work with Windows 8?

    , DeathBy​VisualStudio wrote

    I use it all of the time between my W7 enterprise desktop and W8 enterprise Build tablet. It's worked since the dev preview version of W8. At home the tablet hooks up with my W8 Pro desktop. The software is fantastic. Make sure you get the latest version and not the one from the MS Garage site. Last I checked it was ancient.

    Good, I'll get the latest version.  BTW, where is the latest version?  I thought it would be on the MS Garage website.

  • Will Mouse Without Borders work with Windows 8?

    I use Mouse Without Borders, from Microsoft Garage, on a Windows XP machine and a Windows 7 machine.  Will Mouse Without Borders also work on a Windows 8 Pro or Enterprise machine?

  • SkyDrive: What happens to a synced folder, if the PC dies?

    @figuerres: How do you create an image of a system?  I've heard the term "image of a system", or "PC image", but I don't really know how to do it.  And it would definitely be helpful here at work, when we set up new PCs, and we'll be doing several of those soon.

  • IE9 stopped working after installing Bitdefender 2013

    @Harlequin: OK, but why would I not be able to send emails anymore?  IE isn't involved in the sending of emails, that I'm aware of.  (I'm using MS Outlook 2010 for my email client.)

    I wasn't aware of the forums for Bitdefender, thank you for pointing that out to me!

  • IE9 stopped working after installing Bitdefender 2013

    I should add that my email doesn't work, entirely.  What I mean is that I can receive emails, only.  If I attempt to send any email at all, it hangs and never exits.
