Windows Essentials Offline Download

Then you can create to distribution package in Configuration Manager and the silent command line that you need to use is:

wlsetup-all.exe /AppSelect:MovieMaker /NOToolbarCEIP /NOhomepage /Nolaunch /NOMU /nosearch /q

These command parameters each mean the following:

  • /AppSelect:MovieMaker – install just the movie maker app from the installer
  • /NOToolbarCEIP – do not install the toolbar
  • /NOhomepage – do not change my homepage
  • /Nolaunch – do not launch the program on completion
  • /NOMU – do not run Windows Updates
  • /nosearch – do not change my default search engine
  • /q – run the installer silently

If you need a detection method for this, you can use the root executable file for Movie Maker which should sit in the %programfiles% location under the Photo Gallery folder.

Football Manager 2015 – Attacking Tactic

fm16

If you want to score an absolute shed load of goals on Football Manager 2015 then this is the tactic for you…

This is a very attacking tactic and we have been testing it for a few weeks now and yes, you do score a lot of goals but if you are not careful, you also concede just as many (we have had quite a few 5-5 draws!). So, if you are going to use this tactic, then we would advise that you have three quality central defenders and a world class goal keeper or else you will let in more than you will score.
The tactic looks like this:
Football Manager 2015 - Attacking Tactic 4
As you can see, our defenders are hardly world class which is probably why we have leaked so many goals! But even with the misfiring Aston Villa, we scored over 90 goals in the last season.
On a side note, if you can sign up Vagner Love – he is brilliant in the English Premiership! Also do not forgot that Victor Valdes is available on a free until the next transfer update comes out. Denis Suarez (its not Luis!) is also world class as is Odegaard.
If you really want to go for it, you can also push up your two wide men in to Attacking Midfielder positions like this:
Football Manager 2015 - Attacking Tactic 5
But this is leaving you very short at the back so do not use this against the bigger teams or else it will be game over before you even get a chance to score!
So, if you want to download this tactic you can grab it using the link below:

Windows 10 Microsoft Live Demo

Blue and White Windows 10 Logo

So the big news of the day is that some more details of Windows 10 features have been released during a live demo by Microsoft.

We have been using the Technical Preview of Windows 10 for some time now so its not all that exciting news for us really and Windows 10 is not all that much different from Windows 8.1. However, there are a few new interesting developments that we are very interested in.

One is that Windows 10 will be FREE (not something Microsoft do lightly!) to upgrade for Windows 7 and Windows 8 devices and the other is that you can stream your Xbox One games to your Windows 10 device – something we have been waiting for, for a very long time.

It all sounds pretty good and we are looking forward to the release of Windows 10 but with the technical release licence valid until April 2015, we can probably expect a more final beta release after that taking us into the summer when an RTM release will come and finally a public release – probably around September 2015 – although this is complete guess work on our part and is founded by no concrete evidence whatsoever!

So, we wait and no doubt it will be released via either an ISO download or maybe even simply a Windows Update (can’t see Microsoft shipping out every Windows 7 and 8 customer a DVD!) which means that when it is finally released, it will take days, if not weeks to actually get hold of and we can see the Microsoft apologies now “Due to unprecedented high demand on our servers…”

If you want to see a lot more information on the Windows 10 demo and watch the actual video, you should check out the link below:

Importing NK2 file auto-suggest contacts into Outlook 2013

outlook blue logo

With older versions of Outlook (up to 2007) a NK2 file was used to store recently used email addresses so that you could then use them when you started to type an email like an auto-suggest system. This was great for users but a nightmare for IT techs as most users assume that these are “contacts” – when we know they are not and are basically stored in a temp file! so in the past IT techs have had to copy over these NK2 files and then tell users to make sure they add these to their actual Outlook contacts (which of course they never do!).

Outlook 2013 does not use this method of storing auto-suggestions in a NK2 file but stores them in the “Suggested Contacts” instead – so simply copying over the NK2 file will no longer work – you have to import it.

So, I have the NK2 file – how do I import it into Outlook 2013?

If you upgrade to Outlook 2013 from an older version, then the NK2 file is automatically imported upon starting Outlook 2013 for the first time so you do not have to worry.

However, if you create a new Outlook mail profile or when using Outlook on a new computer, you should import an existing NK2 file using the following method:

Copy the NK2 file to the following location;

 %appdata%\Roaming\Microsoft\Outlook  

Rename the NK2 file to the same name of your mail profile.

You then need to start Outlook using a command line to import on load. To do this, run the following command:

 outlook.exe /importnk2  

Outlook will then import the NK2 file into the Suggested Contacts folder and you should find that all the old “contacts” are now available when your end user tries to compose an email.

Microsoft Excel – Columns Displaying Numbers instead of Letters

excel

We have recently dealt with a problem that a customer had reported to us about their Excel spreadsheet columns suddenly appearing as numbers instead of the expected letters.

We doubted this very much as none of us had heard of it before, but no, there is was, columns as numbers just like this:

Microsoft Excel - Columns Displaying Numbers instead of Letters 11

This was a bit baffling to us, but is very easy to fix. This type of formatting for the columns is called R1C1 reference style. It is not a problem as such, just a different way of doing things, but as most people will want their Excel columns as letters, there is an easy way to revert this.

To show this easier, we have created a quick video guide on how to put this back to letter formatting:
