To check the Vista activation status is easy. Users can simply right click on “Computer” on “Start Menu”, and then click on “Properties” on the right click context menu. On “View basic information about your computer” page, scroll down to bottom, and Windows activation status is listed under “Windows activation” status.

Another way is open up the Command prompt {Start > Run > CMD} & then type in slmgr -xpr and then hit Enter.

Hope this solves your query :-)

Java WAR file is stored in which location?


It's either in the directory where you unpacked the application you just installed, or under the \java\jre6\lib directory (on Windows), assuming you're running Java 1.6 (or java 6.x). If it's not under the latter, then you should try using Windows Explorer (or that File Folder icon) and open the directory where the application resides. Then just start that program. If that works, then you'll need to modify whatever shortcut or script to include the "-classpath=X" right after the "java" command, where "X" is the full path to the WAR file.

How to remove windows 7 from dual boot configuration with xp


The simplest way is to install the OS you want again Also there are some other way. but if you don't skill of PC, it's difficult to remove it thoroughly. You can find the hidden file "boot.ini" in C:'s root directory. there are some words like this:
[Boot Loader] Timeout=10 Default=multi(0)disk(0)rdisk(0)partition(2)\WINDOWS (This is the default OS) [Operating Systems] multi(0)disk(0)rdisk(0)partition(1)\WINDOWS="Microsoft Windows XP Professional" /nodetect" multi(0)disk(0)rdisk(0)partition(2)\WINDOWS="Microsoft Windows XP Professional" /nodetect
and the 1, 2 in the () means C:/ and D:/ if they are in the same partition, you have to distinguish which one is you don't want, and remove it here and then removed all the OS files and users directory files.

When i install turbo c in windows 7 OS the problem is the source path name that i don't understand what is it . so plz describe the source path name is what .


Hi, the source path refers to the location of the file or files that you want to copy. So if you are copying a file from C:\Windows to C:\Microsoft, the source path would be C:\Windows and the destination path would be C:\Microsoft.

If you're installing the program from a CD or DVD, the source path would be the CD/DVD drive, which is generally D: or E:. If you're installing from a floppy disk, the source path is probably A:.

Where i can get software for C Programing language and what is the software name...........?


STEP 1 : Download the Borland Compiler
https://downloads.embarcadero.com/item/24778
STEP2 : Run the setup program
By default, it should install everything to C:\Borland\BCC55

STEP 3 : Add the /bin directory to the system PATH

>C:\Borland\BCC55\bin\bcc32 OR >c32

After the setup program is run (step 2), a whole bunch of executable programs are placed in a new directory : C:\Borland\BCC55\Bin. This step makes it possible for the Operating System (Windows) to find these new executables by name. If you don't do this, then you will need to specify the full path to bcc32 every time you use it.

To do this on Windows XP
Bring up the Environmental Variables :

•Right Click "My Computer" ( Depending on how your system is set-up, "My Computer" is either on your Desktop or in your Start Menu )
•Select "Properties"
•Activate the "Advanced" Tab
•Click the "Environmental Variables" Button
Append ";C:\Borland\BCC44\bin" to the PATH variable (figure 3-2)

•Select the PATH variable under User Variables
Note: The PATH variable may appear under both System Variables and User Variables. This How-To changes the User Variable.
•Click the EDIT button below the list
•In the "Edit User Variable" box that pops up, move the cursor to the end of the Variable Value field
•Add a semi-colon ";" to the end of the current value
Note: If the value is empty, then you do not need to add a semi-colon
•Add the path "C:\Borland\BCC55\bin" after the semi-colon
•"OK" your way out of the dialogs

STEP 4 : Set up some configuration files
you should create a configuration file for the bcc32 program that tells it where to find its libraries and include files.
•The file should be named bcc32.cfg
•It should be placed in the same bin directory where bcc32.exe is located
(C:\Borland\BCC55\Bin)
•The contents of the file are the command line options for bcc32 stating the location of include files and libraries:
-I"C:\Borland\BCC55\Include"
-L"C:\Borland\BCC55\Lib"

Cannot Open DSA.MSC file error


When you install the Administration Tools Pack on a computer that is running Windows XP Professional x64 Edition, the Active Directory Users and Computers MMC snap-in file (Dsa.msc) is installed in the %windir%\Syswow64 folder. Additionally, the computer's file system maps the Active Directory Users and Computers MMC snap-in to the following path: DriveLetter:\%windir%\Syswow64\Dsa.mscHowever, the Active Directory Domains and Trust MMC snap-in incorrectly specifies the path of the Active Directory Users and Computers MMC snap-in as follows: DriveLetter:\%windir%\System32\Dsa.mscWhen the computer's file system tries to locate the Dsa.msc file from within the Active Directory Domains and Trust MMC snap-in, Mmc.exe is run. Mmc.exe is run because the Dsa.msc file is associated with Mmc.exe. When Mmc.exe is run, it uses the following path to locate Dsa.msc: DriveLetter:\%windir%\System32\Dsa.msc DomainPathAfter the Mmc.exe command is run, the Active Directory Domains and Trust MMC snap-in tries to locate the Dsa.msc file. Because the Dsa.msc file does not exist in the %windir%\System32 folder, the error message that is mentioned in the "Symptoms" section is generated.

To resolve this problem, manually copy the Dsa.msc file from the %windir%\Syswow64 folder to the %windir%\System32 folder.

Regarding ActiveDirectory Services in Windows system


Active Directory (AD) is a technology created by Microsoft that provides a variety of network services, including: using the same database, for use primarily in Windows environments. Active Directory also allows administrators to assign policies, deploy software, and apply critical updates to an organization. Active Directory stores information and settings in a central database. Active Directory networks can vary from a small installation with a few hundred objects, to a large installation with millions of objects (though not easily [3]).
Active Directory was previewed in 1996, released first with Windows 2000 Server edition, and revised to extend functionality and improve administration in Windows Server 2003. Additional improvements were made in both Windows Server 2003 R2 and Windows Server 2008.
Active Directory was called NTDS (NT Directory Service) in older Microsoft documents. This name can still be seen in some AD binaries.
There is a common misconception that Active Directory provides software distribution. Software distribution is run by a separate service that uses additional proprietary schema attributes that work in conjunction with the LDAP protocol. Active Directory does not automate software distribution, but provides a mechanism by which other services can provide software distribution.

The File Replication Service has detected that the replica set "DOMAIN SYSTEM VOLUME (SYSVOL SHARE)" is in JRNL_WRAP_ERROR.


Make sure and keep copies of all the folders and files.
Take these actions to resolve your problem:
On all Active Directory registered domain controllers:
1. Stop NETLOGON Service
2. Stop File Replication Service (NTFRS)
On the PDC Emulator:
1. Rename all files in the %systemroot%\ntfrs folder and subfolders (change their extension to .old).
2. Give an unlisted account full control of the directory %systemroot%\SYSVOL folder and reset permissions on all child objects.
3. Change the registry key:
HKLM\System\CurrentControlSet\Services\ntfrs\paramaters\Backup/Restore\Process at Startup\BurFlags (REG_DWORD) = D4 (The default on this is 0)
4. Start the NETLOGON Service
5. Start the NTFRS Service
On all non-PDC emulators:
1. Change the registry key:
HKLM\System\CurrentControlSet\Services\ntfrs\paramaters\Backup/Restore\Process at Startup\BurFlags (REG_DWORD) = D2
2. Start the NETLOGON Service
3. Start the File Replication Service (NTFRS)
At this point, the system in question should have recreated the SYSVOL share and the NETLOGON share. Check this by running 'net share' from a command prompt. You should also see the Group Policy Objects listed in the SYSVOL directory as:
%systemroot%\SYSVOL\domain_name\Policies\{31B2F340-016D-11D2-945F-00C04FB984F9}
%systemroot%\SYSVOL\domain_name\Policies\{6AC1786C-016F-11D2-945F-00C04FB984F9}
There may be more directories listed here, but these are the Default Domain Policy and the Default Domain Controllers Policy that are installed by default when the Active Directory is created. If these are being replicated, then file replication is functioning.
If you cannot find these directories, then you may have to manually recreate them. Here is a list of the proper directory structure of the %systemroot%\SYSVOL folder:
\SYSVOL
________\domain
________________\DO_NOT_REMOVE_NtFrs_PreInstall_Directory
________________\Policies
________________\Scripts
________\scripts
________\staging
________\staging areas
________________\domain_name
________\sysvol (shared as SYSVOL)
________________\domain_name
________________________\DO_NOT_REMOVE_NtFrs_PreInstall_Directory
________________________\Policies
________________________\Scripts (shared as NETLOGON)
If you have to manually recreate the directories, restart the File Replication Service (NTFRS) on all domain controllers to re-enable replication. This should get the file replication functioning normally
