Getting product version if another application vb.net

Q: Getting product version if another application vb.net

Guys

I'm after a way of displaying the product version of another application, I've wrote a program that uses a seperate updater, thing is that I want the updater to show current version of my updated program.

At the moment I'm writing to a .dat file then reading it but I would prefer it to be more contained.

Cheers

Preferred Solution: Getting product version if another application vb.net

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: Getting product version if another application vb.net

The product version might be stored in one your registry keys. If this is the case you should be able to programatically read it assuming you have the full key path.

I'm trying to do an automatic installation of Windows 7, I've captured  the Windows image and I wanted to create an unattended file using the Windows System Image Manager. But if i try to load the image, I receive the following error:

This application requires version 6.3.9600.16384 of the Windows ADK. Install this version to correct the problem

After acquiring the image I did the driver injection through Dism GUI, I imported the image through Windows System Image Manager to create the answer file, and everything was OK. However, I had to edit the image again to add a folder and two files that would
have been useful to launch a post installation script. I used DISM GUI again. Once I saved the image I tried to import it again with the Windows System Image Manager, but in fact I receive the error mentioned above.

Now I did not understand what I did by saving the wim file last time, because before it was possible to read it and after the last modification no.

In a Laptop I have version 6.3.9600.17029 of AIK and on a Workstation is present the version is 6.1.7600. 16385 but in both cases the error I receive is always the same ....

What could have happened?

Hey folks,

I have my XP Product key, bought in approx. mid 2003 but am not sure which blooming version of XP to install to match up with it as I have various. I could trial and error it and install each one until i find the one that allows the key but I was wondering if there is an easier way to discover which version of XP matches my product key.

Any info would be grand.

Regards,

Harry Whittingham
 

A:XP Product Key Vs. XP Version!

Assuming the installations are still intact, download "magic jellybean" and run it on each PC, it will return the CD key for that installation.

The caveat here is that if these were OEM preinstalls a generic number may be returned that is not valid for reuse, but in those cases the matching "real" number should on a sticker on the side or back of the tower or each unit.

I have had to replace a hard drive for a friend who has an acer aspire 5536. The oem sticker is underneath as usual but the version of vista has been rubbed off, ie basic, business etc. The product key is still perfectly readable, is it possible to tell what version of vista is installed by product key as acer do not provide recovery media at no cost which i find ridiculous so was just hoinf to instal from disc and download the drivers manually.

A:Vista Version From product key

As far as I know, there is no way to match an MS product key (serial#) with the exact version of a Windows OS. But, you can do it if you have the Product ID. The good news is, most of the new Vista/7 discs contain all the versions of each OS and install the correct version based on the serial # you enter. If you've got a retail DVD, you should be all set.

Ok so this is a complicated yet simple question. I just bought a laptop that I want to fresh install windows 8 onto. It is an HP laptop and it has a windows 8 sticker on the back so it has the product key in the BIOS. Now it has windows 8.1 pro on it from the seller I bought it from on ebay, but all HP laptops I have seen come with normal 8 not 8 pro, so I am wondering if the product key in the BIOS is for windows 8 or windows 8 pro. Is there any way I can check, or does anyone know of any HP laptops having 8 pro product keys in the BIOS? Thanks!

A:How to tell what version of windows a product key is for (8 or 8 pro)?

I would have thought that a fresh install of win8.1 pro would be easier and decidedly a better system...
 
Why does it need to be a fresh install ?....are there problems with the existing install ?
 
Is there a "recovery partition" on the hard drive?....this may enable you to 'restore' the pc to its default state....

Scenario: Bought Win10 Home OEM for new computer build. Installed it and all of my requisite 3rd party software. Then find out that Home 10 does not allow RDP connections. Buy 10 Pro OEM for $128 (rather than pay $99 for an upgrade through the Windows store so I have a copy of Home on hand which you know will come in handy some day).

Try to put in the new product key to do the upgrade. Get error 0xC004F050.

Call Microsoft and find out that I need to do a clean install to get Windows 10 Pro. I forgot to ask if the problem was the original Home OEM or the new Pro OEM or the combination.

In the off chance that I could save some time, I tried to do un upgrade from the setup.exe on the disk. The options for keeping the existing files and programs were grayed out - only the clean install option was available. And it said it was going to do a clean install of Window 10 Home, rather than Pro, even though the disk was a Pro disk. Weird.

I found no mention of this anywhere on the web so I am mentioning it here and a couple of other places to maybe save someone else some grief.

I recently upgraded my motherboard and CPU. No issues even though going from Gigabyte to Asrock. Windows recognised everything other than those items which needed an Asrock driver.

Windows needed activating however. I was able to type in my old Win 8 upgrade product key. Windows was now activated.

In the new year I'll probably buy an M.2 SSD and put my current SSD in my laptop. Obviously I'll have to reinstall Windows 10. Will my Win 8 product key still work on a clean W10 install even though it was an upgrade from Win 7 / Vista? Or will I have to install Vista - 8 - 10 and reinstall 10 clean again?

A:W10 upgrade product key form prev. version

Once windows 10 is activated it will stay activated through a "digital entitlement", a hardware hash kept on their servers. So with just the change of a SSD, a clean install should activate automatically.

This is my first post so I hope I picked the right forum to post my question. If not, hopefully someone will tell me the best spot to do it. I cannot remove an old version of Printshop. I recently purchased a new version of printshop which I hate. I installed it with no problems and it works fine. But when I go to open my old version of the software I get a message on the screen from PS (Printshop), that says "Cannot determine Configuration". I tried to remove this older version from my computer (through the control panel) and I keep getting a message that says the program is already installed and I must use control panel to remove it. Well that is exactly what I was trying to do.

I have since gone in and removed the newer version of printshop (the one I hate) and it removed fine. Then I tried to remove the old version (v15) again, but still received all the same messages. Also I tried reloading the old version, hoping it would just replace the existing version...but I get a message that the software is already installed and I have to remove it.

For the second time I have tried to contact Broderbund's support only to learn that they are shut down for the day...again!!! Maybe someone here can help me?? I thought it was worth a shot. Bottom line I would like to remove my old version (v15) and reload it hoping it will work then. Is there a safe way to remove a program without going through the control panel or the program list??... Read more

If the disk you use in the exact same system as your COA yes you can.
Example: Windows 7 Home Premium/64 disk and a COA key that reads the same Windows 7 Home Premium/64. When you buy Windows operating system the COA is what you are really paying for. That gives you the right to use the operating system on the disc where/wheir ever it came from. This will also be of great help.

I downloaded and ran the trial version of Office 2010 Professional Academic version. After a few days I decided to activate it and entered the 25-character product key which accompanied a purchased CD version of the program. When I go into any of the programs (Excel, Word, etc) and check to see if Office 2010 is authenticated (File > Help) I see displayed "Trial Product" and it says my trial period will expire in 26 days. Below that it reads "Product Activated." In other words, according to the almighty wisdom and omniscience of Microsoft I have BOTH an unactivated trial version and an authenticated version of their product. I would have thought that once I activated the product it would no longer say I have a trial version. Should the "Trial Product" bit still show there? If not how do I get rid of it? Thanks in advance for any comments, advice, etc.

======================================================================================

A:Windows 10 - Product Key/code Finder for upgraded version

Windows 8.1 key is embedded in bios. Run showkeyplus to extract it.

Windows 10 does not actually use a key - licence is tied to hardware, so the key you see for Windows 10 is a dummy generic key.

Once Windows 10 has been installed and activated once, the MS activation servers remember your hardware and automatically activate future reinstalls. Occasionally, this glitches, and yuh can use old 8.1 key to reactivate.

Also best protection against hdd failure is to make an image backup using Macrium Reflect Free or similar.

A previous posting on this forum had a similar problem & was fixed by using the info given. I tried re-setting (before I did a new install). I've tried un-ticking Enable Third-Party browser extensions (waste of time since I don't have any, or toolbars) & so far no joy. Having replaced IE7/SP3 I'm guessing the problem must be elsewhere on my Win XP comp.

Anyone please got any ideas?

Hello,
I have several versions of an application (Adobe After Effects) installed (I help test out prerelease versions of the software - which is nice) and I'd like to be able to set the precise application / file type association.

If I get a file's properties and 'Change...' the 'Opens with:' and browse to the exact application I want it to open with (After Effects version 13.6x123), then Apply/OK it, when I open the file, it just loads up the oldest version of the app (After Effects version 13.2) that Windows can find. Is there a better way to set filetype associations than the broken method that Windows is clearly attempting to use?

I have four versions of this app currently installed, all in C:\Program Files\Adobe. 90% of the time, I want to use the latest version, but occasionally need to use an older (public release) version to check how certain bugs/behaviours have changed, so need to keep all those versions installed.

I can use the workaround of opening the specific app and File > opening the file from within it, but it would be nice if I could get Windows to behave properly. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated!

Whenever I try to boot my computer, I keep on getting a svchost and Generic 32 error. Sometimes I am unable to then properly shut down my computer and it freezes, other times it works fine but will constantly reboot.

Here are the relevant error messages. Note that I do have an HP PSC printer, but I have tried using the most updated driver (which isn't really so up-to-date) - I think the netapp error is the most important:

Okay, so I have been getting pretty frustrated on this one so let me tell you what we do today and maybe that will help me with what I am trying to accomplish:

We use a simple script in an MDT Task sequence for Windows 8.1 machines to apply an "IT version of the Start Menu"  and after their machines are theirs they can customize the start menu any which way they choose.  We have a
few "core apps" pinned to this menu and now one of the needs to be updated.  The application in question is a 2014 version of a viewer and we are moving to 2015 but anywho:
The viewer is a virtualized application running App-V 5.0 SP2.  I have attempted to modify the .lnk file to point to the new but I still need to keep the folder structure the same and I feel this is a sloppy way of doing it.  If I did
it that way I would want a different way to deploy to Windows 7 machines as well.  So my idea (dumb or not) was to have a script handle it this way if possible:
1.  Export the current start menu layout of the user to an XML
2.  Inject and overwrite section where the APPID=Microsoft.Appv.58bxxxxxxxxx" where the line of code sits to add new code (if not exist do nothing)
3.  Export Start Layout from XML to BIN (Can this be done or can I convert the XML to BIN?)
4   Install Appv Application
5   Import Start Layout and new 2015 version of vie... Read more

Windows refuses to change the version application called upon with default program.

I have 2 versions of 3ds max (2010 and 2015) on my system. I need both for different utilities (some that work in 2010 do not work in 2015, and vice versa).

I tried to change the default left click open program to 3ds max 2015.

However, Windows refuses to acknowledge this and insists on using 3ds Max 2010's 3dsmax.exe instead.

I am using the correct path to the launcher in the 2015 version's folder, I made sure of this at least 15 times.

I have gone through regedit tutorials, even downloaded a utility called openwithview, and tried working with the UI interface for 'open with' for hours but to no avail. Why is windows so insistent on using 3dsmax.exe from the 2010 version even when explicitly told to use the 2015 version? What is causing it to fight so hard with me? How can I change this behavior?

To all:

There's a really strange problem on my Windows 7 64 bit edition.
I added a program to apply fix on ACT ,finished and saved as a .sdb extension file.

However,
when I clicked "Install" on that sdb,it showed a dialog "The database 'xxx' was successfully installed" but "Installed Databases" field wasn't showed in ACT,so installation is failed.

Plus, when I clicked "Close" a database which was just generated and tried to open the saved database file again,

It show up a dialog instead. Same problem occurred in ACT 64 bit.

I've tried any version of ACT from 5.6, 6.0 ,6.1 and 10.1; All of them have same problem.
How to deal with this strange situation? Thanks for help!!
