Admin Power-shell Will Not Run Local Exe

Mar 7, 2013

I'm trying to set up a dual boot system with Windows 8, (already installed on a new laptop), and Win 7.

Following instructions from a forum thread I got as far as downloading oscdimg.exe into the Win7_ISO directory.

However whatever I try, full path, etc., I get this error Code: oscdimg.exe : The term 'oscdimg.exe' is not recognized as the name of a cmdlet, function, script file, or operableprogram. Check the spelling of the name, or if a path was included, verify that the path is correct and try again.

The command I am trying to run is Code: PS C:Win7 ISO> oscdimg -w4 -os -lWin_7_x64_UEFI_ISO9660 -m -o -n -pEF -e -bc:Win7 ISOefimicrosoftootefisys.bin c:Win7 ISO c:Win_7_x64_UEFI_ISO9660.iso

Local HDD Asking For Admin Permissions After Format

Jun 10, 2013

This problem occurs on a local, non-USB HDD.

I recently formatted my computer, installing Windows 8. And I realized one of my HDDs was acting weird. It doesn't allow Chrome to save files, it asks for UAC permissions when I try to delete, move or rename files. I looked it up, decided it was about ownership and permissions. Permissions were already set, full control. But ownership was wrong so I fixed it, rebooted my computer and problem still persists at the moment.

When I right click and go to the properties of a folder, it says "Read only". When I uncheck it and Apply, it "applies" it to the subfolders with a loading bar but it still remains "Read only".

Win 8.1 Weather App Immersive Shell DCOM Error

Sep 15, 2013

I did a clean install of 8.1 RTM yesterday and have a problem with Weather App. About 20x per second I get error id 10016 when I launch the app. It seems to be saying that my user does not have rights to launch "Immersive Shell" local server. From what I can see however this is picked up from defaults which do allow launch.

I've not changed any permissions as I don't really understand DCOM but do these setting look correct?

Classic Shell Does Not Skip Metro Screen

Jan 16, 2013

I have Classic Shell set up on two Window 8 machines, a desktop and an ASUS Q200e laptop. And it is thing of beauty on one machine but less so on the other. The desktop works just fine but on the ASUS I cannot skip the Metro screen. At boot, the Metro shows up for a long, long time before Classic Shell shows up. Yes, I have the 'skip Metro' item checked . On the desktop Classic Shell shows up immediately without showing any trace of Metro. I have compared the settings on both machines one by one and they are identical as far as I can see.

I made a Registry edit to produce a Classic Shell service log and here is the content of that log.

0x50F664F7 Starting service
0x50F664F7 Session 0 (4)
0x50F664F7 Session 1 (0)
0x50F664F7 Starting process: C:Program FilesClassic ShellClassicStartMenu.exe -startup

I believe the problem has something to do with one of the ASUS programs that gets loaded at startup. The OS is the one installed and shipped with the computer while the desktop is a clean install from a DVD.

Windows Shell Common DLL Has Stopped Working

Dec 24, 2013

I was trying to adjust my recording volume settings and realised that I couldn't access them at all. I can access volume mixer, recording devices and playback devices but as soon as I click properties I get an error "windows shell common dll has stopped working" checking for solutions. No solutions are found.

In the event log I have this:
Log Name: Application
Source: Application Error
Date: 24/12/2013 14:45:38
Event ID: 1000
Task Category: (100)
Level: Error

[Code] .....

I have updated the sound drivers and this does not solve the issue.

I have run sfc /scannow and get this error: Windows Resources Protection found corrupt files but was unable to fix some of them. I checked the CBS.log and mmsys.cpl is in the log:

2013-12-24 15:52:11, Info

[Code] ......

There are also lots of other files with errors. I think this was caused by my faulty SSD and when I re-imaged back to my new drive, these errors are still present.

Do I need to re-install windows or can I repair install without losing my profile and data? I'd rather repair than re-install.

Apps / Software :: Classic Shell For Windows 8?

Apr 1, 2012

The latest version of Classic Shell supports Windows 8 Consumer Preview. The new features are:

A customizable start button. You can pick from Classic, Aero and Metro styles, or select your own image. Unlike Start8 and ViStart, this is a real start button. It can extend beyond the taskbar, and works well for any taskbar position, even in auto-hide mode.A new Metro skin for the start menu. For people who like Metro, but not the start screen.All settings are updated to reflect the changes to Windows 8. For example the status bar settings are gone, because the status bar in Windows 8's Explorer can't be customized.The check for new version is more responsive and can be disabled during installation.

Apps / Software :: Classic Shell Explorer Toolbar?

Apr 16, 2014

The loss of the Classic Shell toolbar in Windows Explorer is still puzzling me.

I've been through all the Classic Shell options (I think!) and messed around with Windows Explorer, but after installing 8.1 the toolbar seems to have disappeared.

I used to have all the View buttons pinned to the bar and I'm really missing it. I know they can be put in the Quick Access Bar, but it's not as usable/fast as the Classic Shell version (the change as hovering I also find very annoying).

EDIT: Just realise I hadn't checked the version I was using. It's 4.0.4 and re-checking the developers site I've now realised that they're up to 4.0.6 ------ Could this be the issue?

I seem to remember that 4.0.6 was not yet stable, or have I dreamt that - I think I probably have

Apps / Software :: Classic Shell - Alternative Start Button?

Aug 8, 2013

I was wondering if we have a way to customize the Start Orb/Button with this software? I downgraded to an older version because the newest one had a look that literally appears to be the Shell gasoline logo! At least with this version it simulates the Windows color scheme.

I am using Version 3.6.7. The current version is 3.6.8. but it has a blued out background with the Shell logo prominent.

If it were not for Classic Shell I would not be using Windows 8 at all.

External Hard Drive Shell Broke / Salvaged Internal Drive?

Dec 26, 2012

I have a 2TB Western Digital My Book Essentials, it's filled with tons of old photos, movies, docs, games, and I'm scared to think of what else. The SATA to USB connector broke on it, so I took the drive apart and put it inside my computer. I opened up device manager because it wasn't showing up automatically and the 2TB is showing up as unallocated, I'm freaking out now because I'm scared the data was somehow deleted.What do I do?

edit: I realize also this isn't directly related to Windows 8 (besides the fact it's the OS I'm on), but I don't know where else to post it. I'd also like to say that I had a really deep feeling the drive was going to break continually for about two weeks before it happened, so if you have a similar feeling about something, don't ignore it!

How To Run Dos As Admin Win 8 Pro

Nov 27, 2013

Hardware ASUS G1SN-x1 Running Win 8 Pro

Problem. Video card keeps being disabled error code 43 - Display adapotor Nvidia GEForce 0500M GS (laptop)

I Uninstall all Nvidiva programs. Run a driver wiper, do a custom install from mfg site (Just Graphics Driver) I'm not a gamer anymore. Everything works fine for a week or two and then the card get error 43

I've blow out the dust, the computer since new has been on a fan cooled stand.

Given that the video card is part of mother board replacement isn't realistic. other options might be to reload windows

Go into dos and run "sfc /scannow" if it asks for a CD, windows is corrupted. My problem with this option is that when I enter DOS on Win 8 Pro I am told I must run SFC commands as the administrator. I am the admin, the only name registered on this computer.

Run CMD As Admin In Jumplist?

Apr 6, 2014

Cust. jumplist with Windows 8 tools. CMD is of course one of the programs in it, but I can't get it to open in elevated mode?

Using the program "JumplistCreator" I have made my list, but it can't use shortcuts, it starts the tool/program directly, and therefore the trick by selecting "Admin" in the shortcut don't work.

I _can_ add parameters to the given program name, but I don't know the parameter to give to cmd.exe for it to run in "Admin" mode. How can I do that?

Accounts :: How To Get Local Account Back

Aug 3, 2014

I installed the Windows 8.1 a number of months ago. Since then (I'm thinking, now), I could not sign in with my microsoft account and neither could I get an energy report using the admin command prompt, and was also having problems with the One Drive sync. I never thought these were related, but after months now, I finally, after seeing the new 15 gb free with One Drive, thought I would try to open an account to get 15 free gb. I didn't realize I could open more than one microsoft account, but yeah, a new account opened with the free 15 gb on One Drive.

Okay, so I got this new account, and I could then sign in with a Microsoft account using this new account, which also made my original Microsoft account available, but the problem starts with my original local account. I can no longer sign in with my original local account (see attachment). To me, it is as if I have made a new microsoft account with a sub-account, which is my original Microsoft account. One is for Windows 8.1, (the new MS account), and my original MS account was for Windows 8, which no longer exists. Somewhere in the process of creating the new account, I was given the option to elevate it to Administrator and I did, it even shows as Administrator in the User Accounts "change your account type" where the "standard" and "administrator" are available, but this is not where I somehow elevated it. Now, it seems to be the boss, my original MS account seems to be secondary or an alias.

I closed the account, but it won't be official til October, since there is a 60 day recovery plan. Even with the account closed, folders and things, because I'm currently signed in with my original MS account, need to logged into with the new account info, which is what I mean by "the boss". I can't be doing that if I'm closing the account.

I did get an energy report, but the .html file wouldn't open (see attachment).

I learned One Drive is different with Windows 8 or is it just 8.1, haven't got into it to much, right now.

How can I get my local account back, keep my original MS account, and still be able to sign in, get an energy report, and use One Drive sync?

Network / Sharing :: Using RDP With Local Keymap?

Jul 30, 2013

At my last place of work I primarily used Debian; at my new workplace, I really need to use Windows 8 on my desktop; that in itself is not a problem. The problem I'm experiencing is that the native RDP client (remote desktop) will always use the server's local keymap - and I do not use a qwerty keyboard. My opinions on this aside, I appear to have two main options:

1) Find an alternative RDP client which uses the local keymap, as the Linux clients generally do.

2) Simply learn to use qwerty.

I've had to luck with option number one, so before I start the misery of number two, I thought I'd try a last-ditch attempt, and ask others.
