So I set it to the same path again, and all things work.</p> <p>But this time <em>only in this version of PyCharm.</em></p> <p>Because when I switch back to the <em>previous version</em> of Pycharm, the situation is similar - I find that the Project Interpreter is not set - in spite that all things worked before, and the Project Interpreter <em>was set</em> (to the same path <code>C:\Users\User\Anaconda3\python.exe</code>). </p> <p>So I set it to the same path again, and all things work now - but only in this version of Pycharm, because after switching back to the other version, the Project Interpreter is not set.</p> <p>It doesn't matter when I switch between active versions of PyCharm, or when I exit one version, and then I launch the other one.</p> <p><strong>One version of PyCharm unset Project Interpreter in the other one, and vice versa.</strong></p> <p>What happens, and how to fix it?</p> http://andreidionian.com/?id=q/1396299 0 Windows 10 apps "Sort by Install Date" are not sorted by time Zvi Twersky http://andreidionian.com/?id=users/430760 2019-01-20T13:19:41Z 2019-01-23T09:41:22Z <p>In all previous versions of Windows, when you sorted the installed programs by "date installed," it would sort them exactly like that - by date and TIME installed.</p> <p>In Windows 10, it takes all the apps that were installed on a particular day and then sorts THOSE by name. Yesterday I installed many programs (new windows installation) and one of the apps also installed some extra stuff I don't want but I have no idea what. Just by sorting by "install date" doesn't help because it's now sorted by name on yesterday's date, along with the other 50 things I installed yesterday.</p> <p>Trying to go to "Program Files" and "Program Files(86)" and sorting there by date created is not a solution because some programs don't get installed there.</p> <p>Is there a way to sort the apps by the EXACT date and time they were installed without using 3rd party software like "IObit Uninstaller?" </p> http://andreidionian.com/?id=q/963302 1 BootCampAssistant "Install or delete Windows 7" greyed out Guillaume Munsch http://andreidionian.com/?id=users/488862 2015-08-26T21:42:31Z 2019-01-23T09:01:50Z <p>I need to install a Windows 7 on my MacBookPro but the installation button is actually greyed out. <a href="https://i.stack.imgur.com/yffI6.png" rel="nofollow noreferrer"><img src="https://i.stack.imgur.com/yffI6.png" alt="enter image description here"></a></p> <p>I first managed to install a first windows but i needed it to be bigger, so i deleted the BootCamp partition with a live GParted USB and here it is, impossible to get this again.</p> <p>Here are the <code>diskutil list</code> and <code>diskutil cs list</code></p> <p><a href="https://i.stack.imgur.com/fbpI1.png" rel="nofollow noreferrer"><img src="https://i.stack.imgur.com/fbpI1.png" alt="enter image description here"></a></p> <p>And here is what my disk looks like actually</p> <p><a href="https://i.stack.imgur.com/OqgjP.png" rel="nofollow noreferrer"><img src="https://i.stack.imgur.com/OqgjP.png" alt="enter image description here"></a></p> <p>Please help me, i don't know what to do ...

Other examples would like to move for example is my documents, windows update files downloads, the storage of those changes.</p> <p>Thank you for your time in reading my request/question and any time you spend in responding, it is greatly appreciated.</p> http://andreidionian.com/?id=q/282470 1 Cisco VPN client failed to enable virtual adaptor probably at the beach http://andreidionian.com/?id=users/76482 2011-05-12T08:53:06Z 2019-01-23T05:35:56Z <p>I'm trying to connect to a server using Cisco VPN client 5.0.07.0290 on windows 7 but while it's trying to secure the communications channel it comes up with an error 'Failed to enable Virtual Adaptor'.</p> <p>Can anyone shed any light on the problem?</p> http://andreidionian.com/?id=q/1396686 0 Windows 7 network share is not accessible, handle invalid, 4672 4634 Steve Wasiura http://andreidionian.com/?id=users/27605 2019-01-21T16:34:12Z 2019-01-23T00:44:05Z <p>I have two Windows 7 PCs, no domain, same workgroup.</p> <p>PC A used to be able to connect to PC B's network shares. Now it can't. Winf firewall on PC B is off for troubleshooting.</p> <p>From PC A, double-clicking on PC B name in Explorer's network view prompts a login dialog box.</p> <p>Login uses <code>PC B\username</code> on PC B, with correct password.</p> <p>Error message is:</p> <pre><code>PC B is not accessible. handle is invalid. </code></pre> <p>Event viewer on PC B <code>eventvwr winlogs\security</code> shows the event ids:</p> <pre><code>4672 special logon </code></pre> <p>and immediately after it</p> <pre><code>4634 logoff logon type 3 (network) </code></pre> <p>So it appears PC A is using a valid user account and password to login to PC B, the login is accepted, but then the login is immediately logged off.</p> <p>Using elevated cmd prompt on PC A, <code>net view \\PC B</code> returns</p> <pre><code>System Error 5 has occurred. Access is denied </code></pre> <p>The only thing I can think of that may have triggered this is that PC A was renamed using "Computer Properties" and restarted. The access problem began after this procedure.</p> <p>Any tips on how to further troubleshoot this issue?</p> http://andreidionian.com/?id=q/955428 0 iis 8 Application Pool stops automatically when opening a web site Someone123 http://andreidionian.com/?id=users/469375 2015-08-11T15:49:23Z 2019-01-22T23:02:35Z <p>Whenever I try to open or browse a web site in iis 8, the application pool stops and I get an error 503- service unavailable.

The error states: </p> <p><code>mstsc.exe</code> </p> <p><code>The system cannot find the file specified.</code> </p> <p><code>c:\Windows\System32\&lt;LANG_NAME&gt;\mstsc.exe.MUI</code>.</p> <p><a href="https://i.stack.imgur.com/t0DnX.png" rel="nofollow noreferrer"><img src="https://i.stack.imgur.com/t0DnX.png" alt="mstsc_error"></a></p> <p>The event viewer's showing no messages at all about this. I've look into all sections and for any type of event, not just errors and warnings. </p> <p>I've been googling for the error and found <a href="https://www.google.it/search?q=%22C%3A%5Cwindows%5Csystem32%5C%3Clang_name%3E%5Cmstsc.exe.mui%22&amp;ie=utf-8&amp;oe=utf-8&amp;client=firefox-b-ab&amp;gfe_rd=cr&amp;dcr=0&amp;ei=cTXnWY3WO9Kv8we4t4KQBg" rel="nofollow noreferrer">numerous posts</a> related to the problem, but none of the soultions worked for me.</p> <p>I'll briefly explain the steps I took in order to try to fix this:</p> <ul> <li><p>compared <code>mstsc.exe</code> and <code>mstsc.exe.mui</code>'s locations with a known good system.</p></li> <li><p>copied both files from the known good system in the broken one</p></li> <li><p>as the default mui location for 32 bit executables on this system is <code>C:\Windows\System32\it-IT\</code> I created another folder in it named <code>it</code> and put inside it <code>mstsc.exe.mui aaclient.dll.mui mstscax.dll.mui</code>. I also copied this new <code>it</code> folder in <code>C:\Windows\System32\</code>. So now I have three copies of this three files in <code>C:\Windows\System32\it-IT\</code> <code>C:\Windows\System32\it</code> and <code>C:\Windows\System32\it-IT\it</code></p></li> <li><p>I've search into the registry for the word <code>mstsc.exe.mui</code> and found just two keys, non related to this file's path. <code>HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\COMPONENTS\DerivedData\Components\amd64_microsoft-windows-t..cesclient.resources_31bf3856ad364e35_6.1.7601.17514_it-it_5f6e83504ee8d5f5</code> and <code>HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\COMPONENTS\DerivedData\Components\amd64_microsoft-windows-t..cesclient.resources_31bf3856ad364e35_6.1.7601.18540_it-it_5f49fb9c4f04de0d</code>. </p></li> <li><p>Then I've found a working and updated PC running Windows 7 Pro SP1 x64 English, and took <code>mstsc.exe.mui aaclient.dll.mui mstscax.dll.mui</code> from its <code>C:\Windows\System32\en-US</code>. I've put it in <code>en-US</code> <code>en</code> and <code>en-US\en</code></p></li> <li><p>I tought I might have installed an english version of the <code>mstsc.exe</code> that might want to find english dlls in the italian path, so I tried to overwrite italian's files with english files. I also tried the other way around, with files from the italian system in the english's folders.</p></li> <li><p>I've found that installing <code>KB2574819-v2-x64</code> might fix this, it was already installed on this system so I tried to remove it and reinstall it back.</p></li> <li><p>I wasn't able to find a way to remove and reinstall mstsc application/feature.</p></li> <li><p>I tried disabling antivirus protection.</p></li> <li><p>I've scanned the machine for rootkits and virus, with no luck at all. It's always been protected with a commercial antivirus solution that never expired since it's been in production, and it's always been used by a conscious person, and WITHOUT administrative rights.</p></li> <li><p>I've performed a full <code>chkdsk</code> pre boot.</p></li> <li><p>I've scanned with <code>sfc /scannow</code> and it found no corrupted system files.</p></li> </ul> <p><strong>I tried all this steps, with no luck at all but I think I might have still missed something, and don't want to wipe and reinstall a system that is performing perfectly but this issue. Anybody's got any clues?</strong></p> <p>Another detail that might be important, I don't think the <code>mstsc.exe</code> was ever run since this PC is in production. Just in the last few weeks they introduced new features that bring on this PC the need to use the rdp client. As far as I know the problem might be present since the fresh installation. As this system was installed in 2014 and is always been up to date, I suspect it might be a problem with the install image, or with the updates that went through years till now. Unfortunately I can't determine when the problem with <code>mstsc.exe</code> started. This PC is an AD member and has always received updates from their WSUS. It's never been unpatched or without business antivirus solution since 2014. </p> <hr> <p><strong>Relevant edit: as supposed in the answer, yes, it was an english system and the italian language pack was installed before PC went in production.</strong></p> http://andreidionian.com/?id=q/1397118 1 I can't delete folder on windows 7 and windows 10 even i have admin rights user865265 http://andreidionian.com/?id=users/865265 2019-01-22T18:20:17Z 2019-01-22T18:20:17Z <p><a href="https://i.stack.imgur.com/qdxiq.png" rel="nofollow noreferrer">Please check this error image and help me </a></p> <p>I can't delete empty folder in windows 7 and 10. </p> <p>I tried few options to delete from dos and delete from safe mode. but its not working. i tried to rename it. which is also not working. </p> <p>please help me to delete these kind of folders.</p> <p>is there any software using which i can delete these kind of folders forcefully?</p> http://andreidionian.com/?id=q/721842 0 Fastest way to create a Shortcut ignoring drive mapping Emilio M Bumachar http://andreidionian.com/?id=users/64261 2014-02-26T12:58:15Z 2019-01-22T16:01:20Z <p>When I create a shortcut to a network file using standard Windows Explorer "Right-click -> Create Shortcut", the shortcut link takes advantage of my network drive mapping, which substitutes a single letter and colon for a big chunk of the path.</p> <p>This makes the shortcut harder to share with my co-workers, who don't have the same mapping.</p> <p><strong>I want a shareable shortcut which links to the full path of the file, ignoring the mapping.</strong></p> <p>My current solution involves opening another instance of Windows Explorer, starting at the network root, finding the same file without using the mapped drive, <em>then</em> creating the shortcut.</p> <p>It's acceptable since I don't do it very often, but does anyone know a better way?</p> http://andreidionian.com/?id=q/243789 0 How to test a task with the Task Scheduler on Windows 7?

I <em>did</em> find <a href="http://andreidionian.com/?id=questions/691565/advanced-security-audit-policy-not-applying-to-win7">this</a> question which I thought held the solution through <strong>auditpol.exe</strong>.

I know I'm being overly generous with security permissions but I really need no security right now, I'll settle for it just working. The contents of smb.conf I pieced together from various guides/forum threads and sambas own documentation.</p> <p>The whole apache/mysql/php works fine but every time I try to access the shared directory in my win 7 machine, it says I have no permission to access it.</p> <p>I can see the test_server in network, I can even access it and see the html directory (after adding map to guest = bad user to smb.conf) but no matter what I try, I can't get into that folder.</p> <p>I also tried these since it seemed to pop up a lot with other peoples win 7 samba access problems</p> <pre><code>lanman auth = no ntlm auth = no client ntlmv2 auth = yes </code></pre> <p>but removed those lines since according to samba documentation, those are the default values anyway</p> <p>I also edited win 7 security policies to enable ntlm and plaintext passwords but no effect for either.</p> <p>Is there anything I'm missing?

It all of a sudden started running extremely slow and the hard drive seems to be constantly running. I have tried some things I have seen in forums such as Malwarebytes but not really much change. I use this laptop for work and there are a variety of reasons why I want it to work properly rather than getting a new laptop so any help is appreciated in getting it back to normal again.</p> <p>A couple of days ago I got the hard drive to somehow stop and work more or less normally but after restart went back to running all the time. I am thinking there is Malware in there but it has been hard to really scan well as it runs so slow. Mixed performance in safe mode as well. It also operates somewhat better when not connected to the internet which is one reason I think it may be Malware.</p> <p>I should also note that this laptop is really used for work only. Not for surfing the internet and such. I have other devices I use for that.</p> http://andreidionian.com/?id=q/813389 1 H264 in Firefox on Windows 7 N without Media Feature Pack? user369708 http://andreidionian.com/?id=users/369708 2014-09-18T09:06:27Z 2019-01-21T23:04:24Z <p>How can I play H264 videos and MP3 audio in Firefox on Windows 7 N Professional without installing Windows Media Feature Pack?
