It seems that adobe has problem with signing to Adobe account. After several attempts to login, when I was receiving
"The Adobe ID and/or password provided does not appear to be valid. Please try again."
I tried to reset password. However I got error
"The provided email address could not be matched to an account on file. Please try again."
Adobe helpline responded that “I am sorry to inform you that there is a login problem going on with our website. Our web team is working on it. Please wait for 2 to 3 hours. You will be able to login.”.
Time to time you might need to list or export installed updates and hotfixes. Unfortunatelly even if you are able to lkst them in instaleld programs, you are not able to copy that list. But there are solutions.
In Windows 2003/XP you have to use 3rd party software like Windows Update List by NirSoft.
In Windows 2008 and newer (works also for Windows 7 and probably Vista) it is much more easier, you can do it with:
wmic qfe get /format:list >C:\installed_updates.txt
Format can be:
- LIST – tab delimited
- CSV – csv file
- HFORM/HTABLE – html
- RAWXML – xml
After upgrading my iPad 3 and iPhone 5 to iOS7 I noticed that I cannot install any app from App store. I was able to update existing apps, but when I trid to search for some not installed I got a message “Cannot Connect to App Store“.
At first I thought it is because App store is overloaded, but after few days it was still the same. I have tried everything, sign out from App store, restart iPad/iPhone, but with no success. I was able to search App store from iTunes on my PC, so App store itself was working.
As a Window user, where reboot is king:-) I tried hard reboot and it worked!
So how to fix that “Cannot Connect to App Store” error? When iPad/iPhone is running press and hold both, Home and Power button untill it turned itself off. Device is then hard rebooted and App store is working. My iPhone rebooted automatically, iPad I had to turn with power button.
Did you upgrade your device to iOS7 and realized you do not like it and want to downgrade it back to iOS6.x? How it can be done?
Short answer: It cannot be done.
Long answer: It can be done for a short time when Apple is still signing older version of iOS for your device. After iOS7 release this period of time was extremely short, so if you have device which is supported by iOS7 and you upgraded there is no way back. Current “signing status” can be found foir example on following page: www.icj.me/ios/all.
Lesson learned? Think at least twice before upgrading next time:-)
To celebrate of release new Dropbox Wiki, Dropbox is giving away 50G of lifetime space. To win it, you need to do several steps (donation, tweet, web post etc). More details can be found on their promotions page.
Flickr just launched new redesigned version of their web. Except the look is probably the most important change the storage. Free accounts now have 1TB free space. Instead of pro accounts you can buy Ad Free account, which have same parameters as free account, but ads are not show. There also exist Doublr account which is combination of Free and Ads Free but with 2TB storage.
Add Free account is now for 49.99 USD er year, which is in fact double of price of old pro account. BUT! If you are Pro member, you can keep your current subscription for 24.95 USD per year. It is not quite clear now what features you will get as pro member, mMore details can be found in FAQ on Flickr help pages.
New design is much moore focused on photos, I would say too much. Now you cannot change layout of your stream, If you want to add some text to your set only first few words is displayed and rest you will see only if you hover cursor over it.
For me new design looks like unpolished, unfinished, but I will probably get used to mit.
Windows 8 brings not only Metro interface and strange Start menu but also Windows Defender instead of Microsoft Security Essentials. Windows Defender is missing some features MSSE has. One of those changes is that updates for virus and spyware definitions are installed by Windows Update.
In case your setting are “notify but not install automatically” you are asked nearly every day for manual update. My guess is that Microsoft want to force people to use automatic updates.
