  1. Windows 10 - Deeper Impressions

    Yes. Cmd language is very powerful and has many features that are hard to use. I am a professional software developer and have written many batch files over the years to aid in the software development process. I am slowly switching to powershell. Tasks that required console apps to be written now can be done totally in powershell. The powershell debugger is great and makes powershell script debugging a lot easier than debugging cmd scripts. If you are writing batch files for windows pe then .cmd / .bat scripts are preferable due to the .net overheads of powershell.
  2. Windows 10 - Deeper Impressions

    Powershell command prompt still supports console applications. Any console applications that run in cmd.exe will still run in powershell cmd line. Ipconfig is an external console application so runs exactly the same in a powershell command line as it did in cmd.exe. If you want to switch powershell prompt to a cmd prompt just type cmd.exe /k. Cmd.exe is not being removed from windows 10 just the default is being changed. Its very easy to switch back to cmd.exe as the default - just go to settings / taskbar. I think you will find most windows users never use a command prompt. Those that do will easily be able to switch back to the original default if they are not happy with the change.
  3. Official - Windows 10 Worst Crap Ever!

    Not true. Still 2nd august here and I have downloaded 1607 from windows update, MSDN, and via the windows 10 media creation tool.
  4. It will default to your local user. Replace with your ms user account information.
  5. Run netplwiz and uncheck 'Users must enter a user name and password to use this computer'. Press Apply and enter user name / password when prompted.
  6. X99 no USB in PE3?

    On my ASUS X99 motherboard I had problems with x86 PE recognizing devices if option 'Above 4g Decoding' was set in the UEFI bios. Don't know if ASROCK firmware has a similar option.
  7. W7 Updates anomaly

    See the thread just before yours: http://www.msfn.org/board/topic/174608-are-update-lists-up-to-date/?p=1109760
  8. Are Update Lists Up-To-Date?

    Yes abbodi1406 maintains 7, 8.1, 10 lists which contain the latest windows updates. However he does not appear to post links to them. They are not in wud format but are encrypted and are only downloaded and decrypted via whd.
  9. Are Update Lists Up-To-Date?

    You need whdownloader which unfortunately uses encrypted lists so is the only way to get the latest lists: http://forums.mydigitallife.info/threads/66243-WHDownloader-Download
  10. If you have problems installing .NET 3.5 try uninstalling .net 3.0 and 2.0 first. If you have problems uninstalling previous .net frameworks then you may need to use the 'MS Windows Installer CleanUp Utility to force remove the old versions: http://support.microsoft.com/kb/290301/en-us The tool has got me out of several uninstall problems in the past.
  11. Try the following steps ( it will be easier if UAC is disabled ): 1) Unplug your USB device 2) delete all files with an extension of pnf from c:\windows\inf ( be very careful only to delete the pnf files ). 3) delete the file named infcache.1 from c:\windows\inf. You will need to modify the file permissions of infcache.1 to give the Users group full control to do this. From explorer right click on the file and choose properties. Select the Security tab. Select the Edit button. From the Group / Users list select Users.In the 'Permissions For Users' box select Full Control. Then Apply. You will get a warning - select Yes. Then hit OK twice. You should now be able to delete the file INFCACHE.1. Make sure you only delete this one file. 4) Plug in your USB device. It should now install. Be very careful when performing steps 2) and 3).
  12. Works ok for me. I resized my 20gb Vista boot drive to 25gb by resizing 2 other following partitions to gain the extra 5gb. I run PM8.5 from a BartPE boot CD.
  13. Need for Imagex.exe

    Even if imageex is freely available on the web - its still a MS tool that should not be redistributed. You get it by downloading the OPK /AIK from MS.
