How to prevent an application from overriding DSCP values?

Q: How to prevent an application from overriding DSCP values?

I am using the Traffic Control API that has a DSCP flow on 46 (EF).
Whenever I send a packet to desired destination, It works OK but whenever I use another application, They are always zero.
Is it possible that a specific application overrides this DSCP value? If yes, How can I prevent it?
P.S: It does not happen when I use Policy-based QoS but I don't want to handle it using Group Policies.

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.)

I have an application which always worked fine under XP, however now I've got a new laptop with Vista I've got one small(ish) problem.

The application should open with (and is correctly associated with) the HTML Application Host - which it does for about 1-2 seconds, but then the App Host closes, to be replaced by IE instead - and, in fact, two instances of IE - both with the 'click on bar to allow blocked content' message.

Is there anyway that I can stop IE overriding the HTML App Host ?

Cheers for any suggestions.

Hello! I just recently joined this site and this is my first post. I just have one question, hope somebody can help me with this. I'm developing this application wherein an application(not mine) will pass a value(in this case, a phone number) to my application. Once received, my application will search and pull from the database any other information regarding this number. I am using VB6 as front end and SQL Server 2000 as backend. Please note that my application is running when the value is passed. Please help..
 

A:Passing Values to a running VB application

In normal situations where the apps are running on the same computer...
Use SendMessage with WM_USER. Look up SendMessage with google.

Getting the handle to the other app is where you need to be creative.
A) Have the other app get your window handle by window text.
B) Have the other app read a text document that your program wrote when it started with the handle written in it.

In your case. The only way I can think to do it is by a shared file containing the phone numebr to look up. Have the number producing app append to a text document, the phone number/separated by a certain character; #8973458754#3457658324...
Have your app check that file for numbers on a loop making sure to sleep for 5 seconds or so - Sleep(5000) to give the number producing app a chance to open the file and write numbers. When your app reads the first number, remove it and write the text document anew. That is the short explanation. There are other details dealing with writing and reading files that I didn't get into.

One Windows 7 x64 computer in the fleet requires a software called "SuperDVR" (from "Q See Security", the only software that will work for the hardware) be used at all times. The problem is, as soon as the application starts, the theme changes back to the basic theme and it says something along the lines of "The color scheme has been changed to Windows 7 Basic..the application doesn't support..blah blah blah". When I run the transparency troubleshooter, this restores the proper theme and everything works fine until the application is restarted next.

My question is this: Is there a way to prevent this application from erroneously disabling DWM and the Glass/Aero Transparency every time it starts (without me having to run the troubleshooter to fix it every single time)?

Apparently you can stop this behaviour by disabling the Program Compatibility Assistant. There are various routes to take to achieve this, such as modifying the registry, editing a group policy, or turning a service off.

To disable the Program Compatibility Assistant Service:
> Press the WINDOWS KEY + R to open up the Run window.
> Enter services.msc into the dialog and click ok.
> Search down the list of services for the one called Program Compatibility Assistant Service, once found, right click and select Properties.
> In the properties windows for the service, change the Startup type to Disabled using the drop down.
> Restart your system and test.

To turn off Program Compatibility Assistant through the Group Policy Editor:
> Press the WINDOWS KEY + R to open up the Run window.
> Enter gpedit.msc into the dialog and click ok.
> In the window that should have appeared, down the left hand side, expand the following (click the > arrows): User Configuration, followed by Administrative Templates, then Windows Components.
> With Windows Components expanded, click on Application Compatibility.
> On the right hand side now, double click on the option for Turn off Program Compatibility Assistant and in the new window that appears select the Disabled option.
> Click ok, restart, and test.

As well as the DVR card drivers that spunk.funk has mentioned, you could also look into updating your other drivers, such as graphics. It might help.

I double click an icon to load an application. It would take it ten seconds to load. In the mean time I'd like to continue working on something else, but this app keeps popping top most windows and stealing my keyboard focus.

I have an application that when run, restarts the computer immediately after it finishes. I would like to prevent this application from being able to restart the computer, leaving me able to restart the computer when I desire to. I am running Windows 7 x64
Home Premium, with the group policy editor installed.
The application is a BIOS update program. What it does is it places the BIOS.rom image on the computer (I do not know if it is a temp file or stored in memory only), somehow signals the BIOS to enter a management mode on the next boot, then immediately restarts
the computer to flash it. What I would like to do is to prevent the restart so that I can locate and alter the contents of the flash image (I am not actually modding the BIOS, just the ME firmware), then restart the system to flash the altered image. I already
have the image I want to flash on instead, I just need the means to flash it.
Specifics:
When run, the exec causes a UAC popup for allowing the application to make changes to the computer. Upon finishing, it appears to to use the forced shutdown mode (ex. shutdown -r -f) since I have tried to block the shutdown with applications multiple times,
but it shuts down immediately as if I had nothing running. I used the group policy editor to disable running command scripts, but it did not help. I used the task manager to kill the process less than a second before it finished executing, but I could not

Hi,

I need to find a way, if possible to prevent operators from closing an application. The application has a traditional GUI so all the operator has to do is click the X.

The program (QC-CALC) has password protection to lockout the toolbar, etc, but even when locked you can still terminate it.

I know restricting access to the task manager will stop operators from killing it that way, but since it is always running in a visible window all it takes is that hitting that X. There is a link in the startup folder for the program, so it starts with windows.
So...I've been doing some thinking on this. Can I make a windows service that makes QC-CALC depend on some other arbitrary windows service so that the OS won't let it terminate?

Basically...any comments on that brainstorm, or, more importantly--any real suggestions that will work would be greatly appreciated.

If it requires writing code, I would prefer writing it in C++. As a mechanical engineer, I'm inherently not proficient with programming...but although my C++ is rusty I can get by.

So, with that said:

Workstation is running Win XP Pro SP2.

The application I'm trying to prevent operators from terminating is QC-CALC from Pro-Link.

Does the windows 10 family Safety, actually allow you to block all apps except for the ones you allow your child to run?

It's not clear from their site verbiage on whether you can only block apps that show in the "recent history" (ie run at least once), or even if it's only MS store bought apps.

I am using the following code to add filter to Traffic Control API that has a DSCP flow on 46 (EF)

This code uses the TcAddFilter function with TC_GEN_FILTER structure in order to add such a filter.
    TC_GEN_FILTER filter;
    IP_PATTERN pattern{};
    IP_PATTERN mask{};

    filter.AddressType = NDIS_PROTOCOL_ID_TCP_IP;
    filter.Pattern = &pattern;
    filter.Mask = &mask;
    filter.PatternSize = sizeof(IP_PATTERN);

    pattern.ProtocolId = 17; //Means UDP
    pattern.DstAddr = destination.GetSystemReadableIP();
    pattern.tcDstPort = 0

    mask.ProtocolId = UCHAR_MAX;
    mask.DstAddr = ULONG_MAX;
    mask.tcDstPort = 0;

    HANDLE filter_handle;
    auto err = TcAddFilter(flow->handle, &filter, &filter_handle);

It returns zero which means no errors and using Wireshark I can see that the RTCP packets (which are based on UDP) have DSCP values set on 46 (EF) but UDP packets with raw data have no DSCP. When I close my app, the RTCP packets also go back to zero
DSCP which means no other process handles this value assignment.

But if I use Group Policy Editor, I am able to assign 46 to both RTCP and UDP packets.

A:Solved: Excel-Substitute values from a list of new values

Hi bongiojf, welcome to TSG.

You can do this with a vlookup formula, assuming that the old values are in the leftmost column and that they are sorted alphabetically.

On sheet 3, in column B (or any blank column) use this formula for the first cell and then copy it down the rest of the column:

=VLOOKUP(A1,Sheet1!$A$1:$B$3,2)

Change the range $A$1:$B$3 to be the range of data you have on Sheet 1. The number 2 at the end of the formula indicates that the new values are in the second column from the left. If they are not, change the number accordingly. For example, if they are in column D, the value would be 4.

Once you have the new data in your blank column, you can copy the column and paste special/values over the existing data on sheet 3.

Hope that helps.

Good morning,

I will try to explain this best to my knowledge. I have a worksheet that will work as a report. This report will be based on Contracts. In one file (Physical) I can have multiple contracts. All linked to the same file number.

Example if file number 1234-45678 as 2 contracts then my code will automatically add the information required, adding 2 contracts for file number 1234-45678.
Therefore my initial row 5 (Example only) will add a new row underneath and will add the following information:

A5: 1234-45678 B5: 002 C5: 1234-45678/001/HS
A6: 1234-45678 B6: 002 C6: 1234-45678/002/HS

So my column A will always be the same linking the 2 contracts. 1234-45678/001/HS and 1234-45678/002/HS belong to file number 1234-45678.

If I need to make an amendment, in house an amendment is to make modification to a contract. In my column B I will always have the amount of contracts. In the example above the amount for Contracts is 002.

If I make an amendment and the reason of the amendment is a Termination, therefore cancelling one contract to create another one, I need to be able to change all information in my Column B vs All information from Column A. So for Example:

If
A5: 1234-45678 B5: 002 C5: 1234-45678/001/HS
A6: 1234-45678 B6: 002 C6: 1234-45678/002/HS
And I need to make the above modification then I need to add another Contract but change all information from my Column B (Made in a userform, already establish). So the above example will become:

For some reason though the edit context menu still opens with notepad. I did the same thing for .bat files and it worked fine. Is there another key that could be overriding it?

A:Is there another key that could be overriding it?

A couple possible places. HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\* applies to all files regardless of its type, if it hhas the same "edit" command there will be a conflict (I'm not sure which one takes precedence here).

Also, the route you pointed to are the global settings. There is also a per-user file associations located at HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Classes. From there the very same structure follows. Entries from both places are considered to build the context menu, but for those that are duplicated, the per-user settings override the global ones, could be another place to look.

I have a problem. I use incredimail because....well just because. However, windows mail is overriding my choice to use it with various applications.

When I want to send a photo to some one from what I have downloaded in to the software, the mail server that appears is "windows mail" and not incredimail.
I should add that my hard drive crashed just months after getting my new machine but before it crashed, my canon software would asked me if I wanted to use a custom (mail) server and always used incredimail which would come up with no further problems. But now after getting this machine back and loaded again, it won't ask me....it just goes straight to windows mail. I don't like windows mail...I don't like that it makes this choice for me either...I don't like this at all!!!!! So please, can anyone here help me with getting incredi back as my "chosen" service. I have made it my default email provider but that did not help. Hopes this makes sense. It is only 5:50 in the morning here and my brain is still not full functioning.

MAX_PATH is the 260 character limit Windows places on file paths. Apparently the NTFS file path limit is 32,767 characters, and since Windows uses that file system, I'm not sure what the massive restriction is for. Whenever I transfer files between hard drives of different file systems, this bloody MAX_PATH variable seems to happily get in the way, if only by a few characters. And to make matters worse, although Windows tells you about the names of the several hundred or so files that didn't quite make the transfer due to their paths being over 260 characters, it doesn't have the courtesy to tell you where exactly those files are.

Since I expect I will continue transferring files in the near future, I have started taking a look at what is out there to override MAX_PATH. So far I have heard of Robocopy and I shall have a more in-depth look at it soon. I expect that there are also other solutions out there and that people here have attempted them, so before I commit too much to one solution that might not necessarily be the best one, it would be great to hear of any viable alternatives. Ideally there would be something that could be done "in-house", i.e. without having to rely on third-party software, to override MAX_PATH, but I'm not expecting miracles.

Also, if anyone knows of any way to obtain a record of the paths of any files that encountered errors during transfers and thereby possibly didn't get transferred, your input on this would also be appreciated.

That's what I thought, but some people on Wikipedia seem to think otherwise. Best not to use an encyclopedia run by the public, as they say.

It's great that Robocopy is built in. I'll try it out after my current transfer is finished.

Is there any way to get into the computer to retrieve some files or to overwrite the password so that it can be changed without losing any information?

Thank you.

Hi There!

I was just wandering if anyone could help me with a problem. My 16 year old daughter has watched a video on you tube on how to override the password I have on windows so she can get into the computer. She actually is able to find out what all the passwords are even though I clear the history and temp folders in internet options. I have windows 7 and Vista. Yes I have change the password to the network so she cant get to the web but is there anyway that I can possible stop her when the computer first comes on? It looks like the information comes up on the hard drive, and I cant keep totally disconnecting the desk top it's to much work. I could be wrong but she sure did get in last night as the administrator(And that's me) She even told me Mom there nothing to fix it(Yeah okay lets see about that.

I know most of the individuals on here are Computer Savvy so perhaps you can give me some insight. PLEASE

P.S. No I can beat her its not allowed in California

Hello SuperMom, and welcome to Seven Forums.

If you have Windows 7 Ultimate, then one option would be to turn on Bitlocker Encryption for your Windows 7 drive with a USB flash key. Afterwards you will have to have the USB flash key that contains the startup key in order to be able to unlock and startup Wnidows 7.

This way you can keep the USB key with you when you do not want her to have access.

Hope this helps,
Shawn

I've got a program that starts up when the computer does, or so I've told Vista a thousand times. It still blocks it every time I reboot the computer. How can I set a permission for the thing to run all the time? I can't seem to find where to do that either... I can find my way to the window that shows what's permitted and what's not, but I can't edit them. I'm logged in as an administrator, so I should be able to, but Vista's being overly protective (really, I have a mother for that )

Why is it doing this to me?

A:Vista overriding my permissions

have you unblocked the application in the properties???

right click the application and click properties and on the bottom it should say unblock....

click on the button....

what steps did you use to make the application startup on the computer??

I like to play on-line game but find that most players use cheat programs which takes all the fun out of playing. Is there any way to block their cheat programs and have a real game??? I play a lot of pogo games and I see it a lot there.
Any help would be appreciated.
Thanks.
 

A:overriding game cheats

Probably not. However for most on-line shooters there is a program called 'Punkbuster' being used. There's always a select few that still are able to cheat but less common. In pogo? That's suprising. Not sure if they have a 'report cheaters' option. But that's what i would be looking for in that regard.

Miscrosoft windows updates reset my default from FF to IE; I did not tell it to. It installed all those unwanted search engines I didnt want. NOT HAPPY Microsoft, my pc is MINE, not yours. Leave my setting alone.

Hello all.

I have recently purchased my computer through Dell, just this past Friday it had arrived.

Specs:
Operating System:Windows 2.6.1.7600 (Win 7, 64-bit)
CPU Type:AMD Phenom(tm) II X6 1035T Processor
CPU Speed (GHz):2.62
System Memory (GB):4
Sound Card: ATI High Definition Audio Device, Realtek High Definition Audio


When I had everything loaded up, I tried to play music and have Skype on with my boyfriend only to find any time he spoke, my music would go low or mute itself. And when he stopped talking, my music would go extremely loud.
I checked with other sound sources (Games, youtube, ventrilo, etc...) and the same thing would happen across the board. Which ever was the currently 'started' would come in loud and the rest would go quiet/mute.

I had asked a friend about this, and he directed me to the latest 64bit version of the Realtek driver, as it seemed mine is the 32-bit. It worked at first, but then my mouse began to lag, and anytime I hit enter or tab to enter text into a text-field it would lag for 10seconds.
I finally had to do a System Restore, which fixed it for a short while again, only to have the same thing repeat.

I tried to do a second System Restore and Windows refused to load up after the restart. So I reformatted the computer back to the basic system it was when it arrived.
Now I'm back to the flux/overriding audio problem.

Edit: Forgot to mention I already set the Communications under Sound to "Do Nothing". This did not work. ... Read more

A:Sound Flux/Overriding

Mousira, welcome to the forums.

If you haven't yet open the Windows audio properties and on the Communications tab, set it to "Do nothing",

That should stop things from being muted when using Skype.

having been months behind I finally got around to upgrading IE (aside: yeech, they made the UI even worse...), and now I find fonts are behaving a bit weird on some sites. in one, the letter w has developed a space attached to it. now... it goes away if I tell internet options to ignore font styles on webpages... but then the text size goes out of whack everywhere. someone commented I should override the kerning... and then left without further explaining. before I broke anything I thought it wise to ask some questions.
 
so how exactly do I do the aforementioned? for that matter where did vista(ugh) hide the controls for the font used by default, anyway?

Hi.
First of all I did not know where to put this thread. I figured this would be the most suiting sub-forum for it.
Secondly I couldn't come up with a good thread title, sorry about that.

Here's my problem:
When I use Starcraft 2 Editor I can go into Preferences and change stuff like background color, fonts and font sizes.
No changes I make takes effect, though.

I believe it's because of Windows 7 somehow overriding it.
I tried changing window color and stuff directly in windows, and that worked. (Too bad it also works on everything else, such as web browsers, etc.)

Can anyone help me to change the preferences only in SC2 Editor, without Windows interfering?
Thanks in advance.

I have a Windows XP Pro computer connecting to a Win2000 Domain with Active Directory. The domain controller is pushing down a domain policy that I need to override on just this XP machine. Is there a registry setting that I can put on my local XP machine to override the domain policy settings?
 

A:Overriding Domain Policy settings

NOPE!

Sorry but Domain Policy takes precidence and loads from the Server when you login to the network. the only way to bypass that would be to login to the "Local Machine", but you wouldn't have access to ANY of the network resources.
Good Luck!

This issue bubbles up from time to time, but I've never seen an authoritative answer on it.  I know of several workarounds, but I'd like not to go down that path if it's not necessary.
Question -- Has anyone successfully managed to get specific Application Configuration settings to
override settings that may exist in a Default Protection profile?
Simply put, we use EMET 5.5 and deploy all 3 default protection profiles (Internet Explorer, Recommended Software, and Popular Software).  We're running into an issue with Excel while attempting to load the Power View add-in.  After searching,
I was able to find official documentation that states the Power View add-in requires EAF to be disabled on Excel (at least in EMET 5.2).  I've added the exception to the application configuration via GPO so that it the name matches exactly what the default
profile has for Excel.
value name: *\OFFICE1*\EXCEL.EXE
value: -DEP -Caller -EAF
After refreshing group policy, I see two entries for Excel by the exact same name.  Official documentation from the User's Guid for EMET 5.5 states explicitly that "if the same app is configuration in Application Configuration and in one of the
Default profiles, the Application Configuration settings take precedence", but I'm not really finding that to be the case.  The Power View add-in is still not functioning properly.
Does anyone have any insight to offer?

Boss gave me a Dell XPS14Z that was dropped, LCD was almost torn off, lid badly damaged, but it ran with an external monitor. Boss wanted to use it with only the external, so I (foolishly) removed the LCD and cover to use with the external monitor like a keyboard, but now get the 8-beep BIOS alert.  How can I override the BIOS without a monitor so I can boot up directly to the external monitor? Any suggestions are greatly appreciated. Help me keep my job ?

Greetings,

Before I updated to Ultimate from Starter, I had disabled the background image prefering the default black, but since recently upgrading, I wished to use the themes.

When going to the preferences, windows does confirm my chosen background picture to be the one currently used.. but the set color obviously overrides it. I tried rebooting, no such luck.

Any clues on how I could disable the color to allow the viewing of the background picture of my choosing ?

Thank you

Hello Symphony, and welcome to Seven Forums.

It sounds like you may need to uncheck the Remove background images (where available) box in the Ease of Access Center as in the tutorial below to allow having wallpapers again.

The bulletin board I frequent, recently revised its dialog editor. Where previously we used to be able to post images, using HTML image source code, the revised dialog editor will not accommodate HTML code. The ability to post images was really a huge help in being able to explain concepts and other potential solutions being proposed.

Does anyone have any suggestions on a strategy that will allow me to "spoof" this dialog editor and allow me to directly post HTML image source code.

Something that I have encountered with newer versions of Windows is that you can have a Microsoft account that Windows automatically logs into. Unfortunately, you cannot have a Microsoft account without overriding your user account. I use a simple password to log into my home computers. I have a Microsoft account only because there are certain games that require a Live account to function 100%. The password I use is a jumble of characters for security. However, it’s not that easy to remember. So, is there a way to be logged into Microsoft on Windows without overriding the user account password?
