Dropbox was slowing down my startup after logging in, so I wanted to delay startup by a minute or so to allow my computer to be usable earlier. The normal settings only allow it to either start up immediately, or entirely manually. Below are instructions on how I got it to start after 2 minutes. I did this in Windows 7, but it should work similarly in Windows 8, 8.1, and probably Windows 10. This also works with other programs, so you could stagger startup items instead of having them all hammer the system at once. 1. Disable the normal dropbox startup. a. Click on the dropbox icon, click the gear icon, and click Preferences... b. Uncheck "Start Dropbox on system startup". Click OK 1. a. Click Preferences... 1. b. Uncheck Start on system startup 2. Open the task scheduler. a. From the Start menu, click All Programs, Accessories, System Tools, and Task Scheduler. This can also be found in the control panel under System & Security, A
I needed to update from Respondus LockDown Browser Lab version 220.127.116.11 to version 1.0.7.02. This is how I've done it as an SCCM application. This could probably be modified to be used in some other deployment solution, but I've tested it with SCCM 2012 R2 and Windows 7 clients running 32 and 64 bit versions. After 1.0.7.02 was activated this error shows on 18.104.22.168 Install Shield files and installer folder First, you'll need to create setup.iss files. Instructions can be found here: http://www.respondus.com/update/2009-11-d.shtml Here's their instructions for convenience: First, be sure that Respondus LockDown Browser isn’t already installed on the computer. If it is, then un-install it before continuing. Download the full installer (LockDownSFX.exe) from the Respondus website. BE SURE to obtain the .exe via the admin login for your institution since the installer differs for each institution. Run the installer and select the "Click Here&quo
If you've already installed your operating system and want to move the entire Users folder to another drive use these instructions. This will create a symbolic link which will leave the operating system using the same path to avoid breaking anything pointed to the Users through the C drive. You will still be able to get to this directory through the normal C:\Users path. This is an alternative to making changes with the unattend.xml file on installation. Moving the Users Folder 1. Copy C:\Users to your secondary drive, or wherever you want it to be located. This works best if you boot into a Linux disc or some other boot drive since windows will lock files while you are logged in. If you have a WinPE disc, you can make all these changes at once. 2. Rename, delete, or move the original folder after making sure that the files have copied. It is difficult to rename that folder while you are logged in to the operating system, so I would do this step while booted to another drive.
