Clean install means installing everything, both system and apps, from scratch on a clean disk. You may be able to avoid a clean install by running Repair from the Windows 10 install disc. I think you can do this with Windows 10, but have never done it myself.
Good luck if you choose to avoid a clean install. I have a feeling you will need it. (The luck, that is.)
It's your legacy Packard Bell installed apps trying to update themselves and drivers which are now not used with your new hardware.
Have a look in your startup stuff and see if there is anything obvious, and if so - delete it!
Bad command or file name. Bad, bad command! Sit! Stay! Staaaay...
The C:\ProgramData directory does not appear when I open the listing of my C: drive. So I though I would search for updater2.xml. It appears that ProgramData is a hidden directory on the C: drive and there appears to be no way to open it, which I wanted to do to see what else was in it. I wonder how many other hidden directories there are.
It sounds more and more like your system is in a mess. you have one of two options:
1. Keep struggling on trying to find out what is happening with no real idea of where these ghost processes are coming from, or what else might bite you in the future.
2. Do a proper clean install and ensure that you have a stable running system.
I hear what you are saying but Win10 and my apps are working exactly as I would expect them to. I am tempted to just ignore the error messages and continue for the time being. After all, they are not causing me any problems that I can tell. I can't face having to install everything from scratch again until I have to.
I have had a new system built but I didn't include any hard drives; I moved them over from my old machine. Everything seems to be good as far as they are concerned. Win10 boots OK off the C: drive; all my other apps open successfully off C:; and my data is available on the D: and E: drives.
However, I had a SSD installed in the new machine onto which I intend to transfer the WIN10 image on my current C: drive. However, although the SSD is displayed in the BIOS list of drives and in Computer Management\Device Manager\Disk Drives, it is not displayed as a drive letter in File Explorer.
Does anyone know how I can get it recognised by File Explorer?
Thank you for your help. I couldn't perform stage 5 but I did manage to find a way to format the drive correctly and set a drive letter at the same time. I can now transfer my existing system onto it when I am ready.
That is exactly what I was intending to use but I have had trouble downloading it. I got the error message “The signature of the file is corrupt or invalid” and it didn't complete the download. I am in contact with AOMEI about it.
AOMEI are telling me that I need to use a browser other than Win Explorer to download it. It downloaded perfectly with Chrome.
I have installed jenkins uing Tomcat and Installtion successdul However I am not able to perform any operation after that, on submission of form it is giving below error.
"Syntax Error:Invalid Regular Expression:/^[/: Unterminated character class "
Please help me here how to debug or get solution
Yes - though I do recall seeing some articles about how to get around the PK issue - though it hardly seems worth the effort. It's easier to use the key, and there is a simple VBA script to extract it from your OS if you need to.
