Can't see SQL Server 2012 icons

Q: Can't see SQL Server 2012 icons

I have just installed Windows 8/8.1 - first time user
I just installed SQL Server 2012 and rebooted.

I can't find where SQL Server management studio is located. I've looked on the start screen and I've looked on the Desktop. I can't find an Icon to run it anywhere.

Any ideas?

Preferred Solution: Can't see SQL Server 2012 icons

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

A: Can't see SQL Server 2012 icons

While in the Start screen type "sql" and see if anything pops up. If so, and it's what your looking for, pin it to the Start screen.

Hi
I am working with windows 8 and I have installed SQL server 2007 and visual studio 2010. Now I want to upgrade these setups to SQL server 2012 and visual studio 2012. what is the advantages of what i want to do and how can i do it easily without corrupting the operating system? Please help.

A:Installation of sql server 2012 and visual studio 2012

SQL Server has an upgrade option that is pretty painless. Just run the setup file from your 2012 installation media and click the upgrade option. It will ask you what instance to upgrade, run some checks, and then upgrade it for you.

Visual Studio is a little different. If you install 2012 without uninstalling 2010 first, you will simply just have both versions to choose from. You can completely uninstall 2010 before installing 2012 by finding your 2010 installation file and adding the uninstall and force switches when running it(ex. "C:\vs_ultimate.exe /uninstall /force").

If you keep 2010, 2012 will ask you if you wish to import your settings and whatnot from 2010. If you uninstall 2010, 2012 will just have it all when you open it for the first time.

We run a web proxy server on our network for internet access.
On client machines (running Windows 2012 R2) I have configured the proxy server setting in Internet Explorer "Tools\Internet Settings\Connections\LAN Settings" to point at the designated web proxy server.
When attempting to browse websites from IE I receive the "The proxy server isn't responding" error.
Conversely, browsing the same sites via Google Chrome and Firefox (installed on the same client server) return web pages without error.
In addition, if I run Internet Explorer as administrator (Right Click\Run as Administrator), I am able to browse web sites without receiving the error.
It would appear that the issue is isolated to browsing via IE when not run in elevated mode.
Has anyone come across this issue?

Hello,
I created the following performance counter using logman.exe. 

logman.exe create counter US_Triton_Perf_Log -b 9/23/2015 09:30:00 -e 9/30/2099 18:30:00 -r -s $server -si $frequence -cf $folder\$server.txt -f $logtype  -o C:\local\logs\Perfout_$Server --a -v mmddhhmm  -rf  $max_duration

When I do this across multiple servers specifically for Windows Servers 2008/2012, the counter is created to repeat and run everyday at 930PM and stops running everyday at 430PM. This works perfectly fine as intended. However, When I do this for a Windows
2003 server, my created counter is very different.
For example, in this case, I have set to the counters to start at 930AM and end at 1830PM, because I have set a maximum duration of 9 hours, the job terminates and begins on the next day, since I have the repeat option on. However, this does not apply to
our 2003 server; logman creates the job to run once a week in this case it would be on a Wednesday. In addiiton, I noticed that the job doesn't not even start at it's indented time. It actually does not start at all. I also notice that the jobs on all windows
2003 servers are created in a pending status, which then prevents me from removing the counter remotely. 

I would like to know if windows 2003 is capable of working like my win 2008/2012 servers using logman, and if historically, the job has to be kicked off through scheduled task. 




Both Jobs are using the same criteria, but a... Read more

I have windows server 2012 installed on my vmware running ad, dhcp and dns.
after that I installed the client running windows 8.1.
but when I try to join the domain it says that the domain could not be found.
so I hit ipconfig in my cmd on the windows 8 and it didnt recieve any ip from my dhcp its ip address is169.254.153.23. so basicly my dhcp didnt give me any ip adress since my server is on 192.168.7.128 network subnetmask 255.255.255.192.
in the virtual machine setting I have both network adpters set on bridged: connected directly to the physical network.
when I open the dhcp on my server I have a red arrow pointing down on the ipv4 and ipv6 option but since I cannot ping my server at all I dont think its my dhcp but my vmware network.
does somebody know how to fix this?

I know this is a forum dedicated to Windows 8/8.1, however Im having some issues with Server 2012 R2. I know it is very similar to 8.1 so maybe someone here can help me or at least give me some good ideas. Im having a hard time finding solutions online. If someone knows of a better place or forum to go to for this, please let me know.

Anytime I download software to install on the server I get this error message:

It happens with just about any software I download, doesnt matter what it is. Also, when trying to download something in Firefox, a lot of times it will tell me that the download failed almost immediately. The account Im using is a member of the administrators group. Ive tried restarting, running as administrator, etc. The only thing that seems to work is shift+right click -> run as a different user and running it as the built in admin account. Then most of the time it will allow me to install software or download software with Firefox.

Anyone have any ideas?

Something I forgot to add was if I do get it to download to my own user downloads folder, everytime something is downloaded the permissions are automatically set so I dont have permission to execute the file. This is what Im seeing in the security tab and permissions dialogs:

Hi people, I'm on a ASUS G759JW and recently had to run a DISM source restorehealth using the files provided by topgundcp on this thread. Worked like a charm, DISM came up squeaky clean. Did not have access to local group policy editor as I'm running basic 8.1 and files provided by Microsoft online didn't contain ISO.

Afterwards I was trying to resolve some strangeness in event viewer assuming a lot of it was being caused by incompatible drivers. Downloaded some programs from Windows Assessment Toolkit to scan for issues. Drivers came up fine besides having a TON of unnecessary oem's (however I'm still trying to find some clear instructions on how to remove these drivers using DISM without spending a huge amount of time. I wasted over a week trying to fix the previously mentioned issue and can no longer afford to be blindly jacking about with it.).

Guys,

Long story, but here goes:

Got a custom build server - Gigabyte H87M-D3H, i5-4570, 16GB RAM. It's now running 2012 R2, but it was running 2012 initially and had exactly the same problems, which suggests hardware issues.
Nearly every night, during the night sometime, the server crashes off, and needs to be started again with the power button.
I first suspected a power issue because nothing shows in the event log.
But after connecting it to a UPS and replacing the power supply (with a Corsair CX430), the issues continue.
I also get the odd BSOD - dump attached.
I've checked the following:
- Checked, rechecked and replaced all sata cables
- Scanned/chkdsk all HDDs
- Memtest for a few hours
- sfc /scannow
- UPS and new PSU as mentioned above
What else can I try?

0: kd> lmvm tib_mounter
start end module name
fffff800`01374000 fffff800`013a4000 tib_mounter (deferred)
Image path: \SystemRoot\system32\DRIVERS\tib_mounter.sys
Image name: tib_mounter.sys
Timestamp: Thu Dec 27 08:25:05 2012 (50DC4C31)
CheckSum: 0003AE45
ImageSize: 00030000
Translations: 0000.04b0 0000.04e4 0409.04b0 0409.04e4


It's a 0x7a stop.

If that doesn't do the trick, test with a different hard drive if possible.

Enjoy.

HP Pavilion Desktop - 550-020a (ENERGY STAR) Product Number:   M1P30AA I am after 4 drivers for this machine and Windows MultPoint Server 2012 Standard.BCM43142A0 - This is a bluetooth driver - Not really needed Network Driver - Broadcom Wireless (PCI\VEN_14E4&DEV_4365&SUBSYS_2230103C&REV_01) - Not Really neededSM Bus Controller - PCI\VEN_8086&DEV_8C22&SUBSYS_2B2C103C&REV_05 - NeededVideo Controller - PCI\VEN_1002&DEV_6665&SUBSYS_90F11B0A&REV_83 - NeededIs there anywhere i can get drivers for these ?

A:MultiPoint Server 2012 Drivers

Hi: The only suggestion I can offer would be to try the Windows 8.1 drivers and see if they work. http://support.hp.com/us-en/drivers/selfservice/HP-Pavilion-550-000-Desktop-PC-series/7779690/model/... SMbus needs the Intel chipset driver. Graphics needs the AMD R5-330 driver. I don't see the bluetooth driver listed on the support page, so see if this one works. This package contains the Broadcom Bluetooth driver for supported notebook models that are running a supported operating system. Broadcom Bluetooth Driver is required to enable Broadcom Bluetooth devices. File name: sp67447.exe Try manually installing the drivers if the auto install doesn't work. If the drivers don't extract to a folder like they do on notebook PC's, use a free file utility like 7-zip to extract the drivers from the exe file and browse to the folder that 7 zip creates.

My Windows 8 Desktop and Tablet are always getting optional updates for errors regarding Windows Server 2012 R2. I have no idea what that is, and if I should install them. I'm not running a server, so I'm guessing that I can just hide them. Am I right?

Hi all,
We are using a RDS environment with 2 Windows Server 2012 R2 Terminal Servers, with aprox. 30 users on each server. The VMs are Virtual Machines.
We're facing a CPU usage problem with LSM (Local Session Manager). After a reboot of the server, this problem is "fixed". After about 3 weeks the problem returns.

Task Manager screenshot:

Stack of svchost.exe in ProcessExplorer shows:

I have already tried the following:

Run Windows Update, all servers are up-to-date.Running HP SPP on physical servers, all drivers/bios are up-to-date.Running Integration Services on the virtual machines.running 'sfc /scannow' on the servers.

The problem persists. Someone familiar with this problem?
Thanks in Advance!

Good day

I recently started at a company where i assist in small IT related tasks.

Recently we have started to experience some trouble with our server, we will all still be working perfectly fine (via Remote Desktop) then all of a sudden we lose our connection to the server and when i go to see what the problem is, I see the blue screen
of death on the screen with the following message:
"Your PC ran into a problem and needs to restart. We're just collecting some error info, and then we'll restart for you.
If you'd like to know more, you can search online later for this error: SYSTEM_THREAD_EXCEPTION_NOT_HANDLED (TSFairShare.sys)"
 If anyone can please assist me in what this means and how to resolve it i would appreciate it seeing as i don't have
a clue in connection to servers.

Fresh build of server 2012 R2.
Ran windows updates 3 times and it's current on it's updates.

Installed Office 2016. When I go to start Word or Excel, I get -
the program can't start because api-ms-win-crt-heap-l1-1-0.dll is missing.
Microsoft says that KB2999226 needs to be installed. Go to install it and the message is that it's not applicable for this system.
MS also says to install C++ redist 2015 on the system. I did that and got an error message on the install. Reboot, run the install again and select repair and it can't repair it.

Short of wiping the server and re-installing the OS and other software I've installed on it, I'm stuck.

Any ideas?
