Preferred Solution: Android build tools for windows 10

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.)

Hi,

Can someone tell me if DAEMON Tools Lite 4.30.3 works on Windows 7 Build 7057 x64 please.

Thanks!

A:DAEMON Tools : Windows 7 (Build 7057)

seriously doubt it... havent heard any breaking new news yet... dont believe the developers will make any progress until 7 atleast reaches RC1... and maybe not till RTM

until then, there are other options for virtual ide adapters/emulators

I have a galaxy S3. Love the thing to death.... but after jellybean 4.3, MTP no longer works. I have tried both Kies Air (not a fan) and an MTP update from windows.com that I love, however, neither work. Specifically I am talking about the MTP update I installed from windows. I run the install, restart the PC, and as long as you leave the phone plugged in during this process, all is well. It works just fine. Once you unplug the phone, however, It seems to cease to continue working. I will plug my phone in again and I get the same error I was trying to fix...

Hardware ID Missing
Could not identify Samsung (yada yada yada)


I have been made recently aware that there are a great number of fixes to this problem. One of which I have already tried which involves opening RegEdit and changing one of the WUDFSVC services to a 2 from a 1... Needless to say, if it had worked then I wouldn't be here.

-I am using 7 professional X64
-It is an S3, verizon, 4.3 jellybean build
-It is pissing me off (oh wait, thats not a spec...)

Anyways, If anyone has any suggestions. I have been made aware to try uninstalling drivers and restarting but I have no clue what to uninstall and from where.

A:MTP driver update only works until you unplug android device build 4.3

Got it figured out.... It involved installing some verizon bloat that I really didnt want, but I got it working!

I'm having trouble installing Daemon Tools Lite on my friend's PC. He was running it fine on build 7137x64 and now that I have gone ahead and done an Upgrade and tried reinstalling it, it says that it is doing the SPTD Setup "Installing please wait..." as it should. Then it asks you to restart, as normal. But after restarting, it does the same thing with the SPTD Setup and asks to restart.

I am currently using build 7201x86 on MY computer and am running it without any problems, then again I did do a clean install. Anyone else having this problem? Anyone else running 7201x64 that did a clean install that successfully got Daemon Tools Lite to work? (as this would rule out whether or not the Upgrade method had anything to do with it.) Thanks.

-edit-
solution was found at Whoopsie with Visa>Vista upgrade - THE DAEMON TOOLS FORUM

A:Daemon Tools - build 7201x64 error

I had the same problem.

Just download the new version of SPTD driver 1.59 and instead of install/uninstall choose upgrade. Then restart your computer and try to install Daemon tools again.. it will work

DuplexSecure - Downloads

The other way to fix this problem is to uninstall SPTD drivers before updating Windows 7. Its more avoiding but it works

Hey guys,

First of all, here's my specs:

Core2Duo [email protected],13Ghz
Asus P5B
ATi HD 4870 1 GB, Catalyst 9.3
Creative X-Fi Music
4 GB Corsair RAM

OS Hard Drive: 74GB Western Digital WD740ADFD Raptor

Now on to my problem:

I've made a clean install of the Windows 7 7057 64-bit build on a new partition of the drive mentioned above. After that I installed most of my favorite tools, drivers and some games. It all went smooth and without any issues whatsoever.

A few days ago I noticed something weird, though. Certain tools or even some of their options "hang" for a duration of 5-10 seconds right after opening/selecting them before I'm finally able to use them without any problems. I've opened the task manager to see what's going on and noticed one of my two CPU cores spikes up to 100% when linked to those processes while the other core doesn't seem to care at all.

Let me explain by showing you some examples:

- Miranda. Opening Miranda works fast, but opening a message window for the first time causes the abovely mentioned hang for a few seconds before the message window appears. Core 1 efficiency for Miranda32.exe: 100%.

- Winamp. Opening Winamp causes a hang for several seconds. Task manager shows 100% CPU load on Core 1 for winamp.exe.

- Spyware Blaster. Opening SB works fast. Clicking on "Check for updates", though, causse a hang after which it's finally checking for updates. CPU load on Core 1 for spywareblaster.exe: 100%.

There are a number of Android apps (Google Play-sourced only), mainly photo and video-related, which I like a lot, although I don't really like using a tablet. I've researched a bit into Android emulators which run on Windows 7 e.g. here

6 best Android emulators for PC | Android Authority

and while the idea sounds great, I wonder -- Android is said to have loads of security flaws. I work pretty hard to keep my Win 7 PC clean (I hope!). Is there a risk that by running Android apps, I'm running security risks?

A:Does running an Android emulator bring Android-type security risks?

First of all, it's simply not true that Android has "lots of security flaws". Of course it's not immune to viruses and attackers, but it's not inherently that its an immense risk in it. There are vulnerabilities, but most problems actually came from using untrusted software that abuses the devise. As always, the number one vulnerability in any system is the user.

Now to business. There is no exact answer to that question. It will greatly depend on what emulator do you use and how it's exactly implemented, how does it manages to run Android software and how much does it emulated and how exactly. Frequently, I would expect a different implementation of the Android low level API, meaning that bugs in Android will never afect an emulator (which in turn can have its own bugs), unless some behavior is there "by design", in which case the emulator should attempt to copy it.
Besides, I would expect the emulator to isolate the host computer from malicious Android software (which is not generally aware of Windows existence). Unless an Android virus specifically targets a particular flaw of a particular version of a particular emulator (which as already happened with virtual machines), I won't worry too much about it.

The comes the problem of what programs do you install on the emulated Android. When you install a virus there, it will attempt to do the same malicious actions than it would do on a real phone. Some actions will work the same, for example those i... Read more

Today, June 16, 2016, Jide Technology, the creators of the well-known Android-x86-based Remix OS, have announced an official partnership with Android-x86's founder as well as the availability of multiple new Android PCs powered by Remix OS.

Jide Technology has grown a lot in the last couple of years, and today they are proud to announce that the company is already capable of making partnerships with various hardware manufacturers to ship Android PCs and 2-in-1 tablets with Remix OS pre-installed. What this means is that they will thus allow users to run Google's Android operating system on more devices as their primary desktop environment.

"2016 has been an incredibly exciting year for Jide Technology, highlighted by the launch of Remix OS for PC and the several quality partners that we have been fortunate to announce," said Jeremy Chau, Jide Technology CEO and co-founder. "Now, companies and brands that we have always admired are reaching out to us. It?s a win-win situation as we continue to push the capabilities of Android PCs."

But first, the Jide Technology team is happy to announce that Chih-Wei Huang, the founder of the Android-x86 open source project designed to port the latest Android operating to desktop PCs, has now officially joined the creators of Remix OS as the x86 Technology Lead.

It's official: Android N will be called Android Nougat

After teasing the announcement earlier, Google has formally announced the name of Android N, which will be Nougat.





Google first released the Android N Developer Preview back in March, but the company didn't formally announce it until its Google I/O developer conference in May. The firm then asked for users to submit feedback on what the name should be.

Android Nougat is expected to ship within the next couple months, but it's worth noting that the current version of Android, Marshmallow, is only on 10.1% of Android devices. Nougat certainly has its work cut out for it if it wants to gain significant traction.

The company didn't reveal the version number for the next iteration of its mobile OS, but it has been leaked that it will be Android 7.0 Nougat.

In addition, known defects have been corrected.

The updated anti-viruses are available on Google Play (Dr.Web for Android. Comprehensive protection, Dr.Web for Android. Life License and Dr.Web Anti-virus Light) as well as from Doctor Web's site.

The update will be downloaded and installed automatically. If automatic updates are disabled on the device, go to Google Play; choose Dr.Web Anti-virus, Dr.Web Anti-Virus Life license or Dr.Web for Android Light on the application list; and click "Update".

To perform an update via Doctor Web's site, download the updated distribution. If the option ?New application version? is enabled, a new version notification will be displayed when the virus databases are being updated. You can start the download directly from this dialogue box.

Google officially concludes Beta Program for Android Nougat; Android O Beta coming soon

Back in March 2016, Google released the "Android N" Developer Preview for a few supported devices. The aim of the program was to allow the company more time to incorporate developer feedback, and to submit the final version of the release to hardware manufacturers for early testing.

Google has now announced that the Android Nougat Beta Program is complete, and that a Beta for the next version of the operating system will be released soon.

Before the official release of Android 7.0 Nougat to the general public, five Developer Previews were seeded out to those willing to test early builds of the operating system on their devices. After the general rollout of the aforementioned iteration of Android, Google also released two versions of Android 7.1 to users in the Developer Preview.

However, now with "Android O" on the horizon, Google has concluded the Beta Program for Android Nougat, saying that:

Thank you for your interest in the Android Beta Program! The beta for Android Nougat has concluded, and all devices that were opted in have been updated to the current public version. If you are still running a beta version of Nougat you may download the latest full OTA image for your device and sideload it. This will not wipe your device. We'll update this site when the Android O Beta Program begins.

Today, we released a new Windows 10 Preview Build of the SDK and the Mobile Emulator to be used in conjunction with Windows 10 Insider Preview (Build 16278 or greater). The Preview SDK Build 16278 contains bug fixes and under development changes to the API surface area.

The Preview SDK and Mobile Emulator can be downloaded from developer section on Windows Insider.

For feedback and updates to the known issues, please see the developer forum. For new developer feature requests, head over to our Windows Platform UserVoice.

Things to note:
This build works in conjunction with previously released SDKs and Visual Studio 2017. You can install this SDK and still also continue to submit your apps that target Windows 10 Creators build or earlier to the Windows Store.
The Windows SDK will now formally only be supported by Visual Studio 2017 and greater. You can download the Visual Studio 2017 here.
Known Issues:
Compilation fails on non-Windows 10 platforms

When building apps with the minimum target platform version set to 10.0.16278.0 you get the build error:

?The program can?t start because api-ms-win-eventing-classicprovider-l1-1-0.dll is missing from your computer. Try reinstalling the program to fix the problem.?

This will occur if the minimum target platform version is set to 10.0.16278.0. To work around this, edit your project file and change the version to a previous released SDK. For example:

Windows lets you link your phone and PC
You may remember at Build we talked about PCs and phones working better together. With Build 16251, we are introducing the first set of features that enable ?linking? your phone to your PC.

Hello Windows Insiders!

Today we are releasing Windows 10 Insider Preview Build 16288 for PC to Windows Insiders in the Fast ring only (not Skip Ahead). As we mentioned previously, we are now at the point of the development cycle for the Windows 10 Fall Creators Update where our focus is now on stabilization for release to the world. This means that we are releasing new builds to Insiders more quickly and that these builds will include mostly bug fixes. You?ll notice that this build continues to include a bunch of good bug fixes Insiders will enjoy.

On Build 16288, you will notice that the watermark at the lower right-hand corner of the desktop has disappeared. You will also see that the OS now reports as ?Version 1709? which is the official version number for the Windows 10 Fall Creators Update release. However, this is NOT the final build as we?re not done yet. We?re just now beginning the phase of checking in final code to prepare for the final release. So we will have more builds to release to Windows Insiders between now and then. And the desktop watermark may re-appear in these builds.

We are also releasing Windows 10 Mobile Insider Preview Build 15250 to Insiders in the Fast ring.

Today we are excited to release Windows 10 Insider Preview Build 16232 for PC to Windows Insiders in the Fast ring! We are also releasing Windows 10 Mobile Insider Preview Build 15228 to Insiders in the Fast ring. Earlier this week, we announced new end-to-end security features coming with the Windows 10 Fall Creators Update and this build for PC includes some of those new security features.

A note about app updates
In order to provide Windows customers with the highest quality inbox apps possible, we will pause testing new versions of our inbox apps with Windows Insiders. This means that Insiders will not receive app updates from the Windows Store for our inbox apps that are newer than the apps included in the build. Insiders may notice that some features we were testing in our inbox apps ? including recent updates to the Photos app ? will temporarily disappear. This is because some of our inbox apps won?t have all the latest new features without getting an update from the Store. It is critical that Insiders are experiencing the same version of Windows that will be released as the default version for all Windows users. Insiders will once again start receiving app updates in the very near future. As always, your feedback will help us tremendously to define the overall Windows experience and insure the quality of the Windows 10 Fall Creators Update is excellent for our customers.

You?ll notice that this build includes a bunch of good bug fixes Insiders will enjoy.

NOTE: Some of the x64 versions of Windows 10 Pro and Enterprise for this build in languages such as EN-GB, FR-FR, DE-DE, RU-RU, PT-BR and several others are not yet published. We?re working to have these published shortly.

We are also releasing Windows 10 Mobile Insider Preview Build 15245 to Insiders in the Fast ring.

Also ? join us on Tuesday August 29th at 10am Pacific for our Engineering Systems webcast on our Mixer channel!

Hello Windows Insiders!

Today, we are releasing Windows 10 Insider Preview Build 17101 (RS4) to Windows Insiders in the Fast ring. We are also releasing Windows 10 Insider Preview Build 17604 (RS5) to Windows Insiders who have opted into Skip Ahead.

Flighting to Skip Ahead
Right now our focus is on stabilization for RS4. As part of the stabilization process, we have ?forked? RS4 into its own branch called ?RS4_RELEASE? just like we did with RS2 and RS3. Going forward ? RS4 builds will come from the RS4_RELEASE branch. This also means that we intend to release new RS4 builds to Insiders more quickly to both the Fast and Slow rings as these builds we include mostly bug fixes.

In RS3, we experimented with the idea of flighting two different releases at the same time with something we called Skip Ahead. A subset of Insiders were able to choose to ?skip ahead? to the next release of Windows 10 and receive builds from RS4 while we were finishing up RS3. That experiment went well as our engineering teams benefited from the early feedback. So we?re going to do it again!

Up until today ? Insiders who opted into Skip Ahead previously were receiving the same exact RS4 builds as Insiders in the Fast ring since Build 17017. Skip Ahead never ?turned off? and many Insiders remained in Skip Ahead since joining at the beginning of RS4. Starting today ? Windows Insiders who opted into Skip Ahead will now start receiving new builds for RS5 which is our next Windo... Read more

Hi everyone,

After not recieving the AU from Microsoft I took a look at winver I noticed that my PC has never received or installed an update since the original Windows 10 build (Version 10.0 or build 10240).

I began to investigated and noticed that Cumulative Update KB3185611 keeps trying to install however Windows Update always fails to install this update giving me this error:

"There were problems installing some updates, but we'll try again later. If you keep seeing this and want to search the web or contact support for information, this may help:"
No error code is provided.

I took a look at setuperr.log within the Windows.BT folder and this is the only error present.

Error SP CSetupPlatform::ResurrectNewSystem: Cannot resurrect new system.: Win32Exception: \\?\C:\$Windows.~BT\Sources\NewSystem.dat: The system cannot find the file specified. [0x00000002] __thiscall UnBCL::FileStream::FileStream(const class UnBCL::String *,enum UnBCL::FileMode,enum UnBCL::FileAccess,enum UnBCL::FileShare,unsigned long)[gle=0x00000002]

I would really appreciate if anyone could help me out with this issue, as i'd like to move up to the AU :-)

Please let me know if you need any more info.
Thanks!

My current system was upgraded to windows 7 32bit from vista 32bit (I bought the windows 7 home premium upgrade disc when it was first released). I am going to build a complete new system. Can I install windows 7 64bit from the same windows 7 disc? Or do I have to buy a new windows 7 disc? Is there a way around buying a whole new disc?
 

A:Solved: New computer build work with old build's Windows 7 Disc?

It won't activate and you will end up in Safe Mode permanently. One machne = one license. You need to buy another full version. But you can do it if you don't use 7 on the old machine. You will just have to activate by phone and explain. Then if you go online with both, one will deactivate and go to Safe Mode.

If yes, try to reinstall using the newly released 14295 ISO file.....
https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/soft...mkD9g%29%28%29

Download the iso file that corresponds to your Win 10 Insider Preview version ( i.e. language and bit-version )> save it to a folder.
Right click at the iso file > click Mount > click Setup.exe.
Installation will begin.
No product key is required.

Hopefully, reinstall will fix the problems.

Windows 7 has reached RTM builds
and there will be several candidate builds in RTM.

first candidate build of RTM is build 7260.

6.1.7260.0.win7_rtm.090612-2110 - RTM branch build

compiled on 12 june.


You may ask why the first assembly win7_rtm has already been collected on 12 June not 15 June. There are several working groups involved in the process of assembling win 7 RTM build and will be assessing the quality of assemblies. Once the assembly is collected and its quality is confirmed, only then they put to the vote.

you may take time to understand all of these steps and procedures, so only the assembly from June 12 and June 15, attained the status of the real candidates for the final RTM release.

Edit :Link Removed.
but im not sure in news thread we quote links but not allowed in discussion threads
any reason for that!!!

Microsoft released Windows 10 for PCs build 14901 today, the first Insider Preview build since the Anniversary Update was launched last Tuesday. The company noted that it might take a few hours for the build to show for everyone.

As promised earlier this week, there's not a lot that's new. There are just two known issues and one new feature. Here's what's new:

Improving Product Education: As part of an effort to explore new ways of educating our customers on features in Windows 10 ? we are testing out new notifications within File Explorer. They?re designed to help customers by providing quick, easy information about things they can do or new features they can try to have a better experience with Windows 10. If you want to opt out of these notifications, you can do so by unchecking ?Show sync provider notifications? from the Options menu in the File Explorer View tab.



Dona Sarkar, head of the Windows Insider Program, took the time to mention Windows 10 Mobile, which was the one version of Windows 10 that didn't get an Anniversary Update last week. She said that the team is "laser-focused" on getting the AU to Mobile, and she thinks that they're almost ready. According to Dona, you can help by installing build 14393.67 on your phone and submitting feedback.

I do not have a Windows RT device so that's the reason for my question Windows RT vs Android. I have had a Android tablet (Motorola Xoom) for about a year now and it's been great.

What can Windows RT do that Android can't?

What can Android do that Windows RT can't?
Does RT tablets have all the same hardware sensors and a GPS as Android?

For me I would rather have the Pro version but then I lose battery life. If I get the pro version it will be a laptop. 4 hours or so of battery does not cut it.

A:Windows RT vs Android

it's the biggest downfall of the surface pro, the shocking battery life.

if they could make it last the 8-9 hours then it would hands down be the best tablet on the market.

I think there should be more stores for Windows 8 Apps and not just Windows store. Just like Android has many stores for its Apps. This would make Windows 8 a more open system than what Apple's ios has and this would contribute to Windows 8 success against Apple's ios as Windows 8 would then have more appeal in the masses. What's your viewpoint?

A:There should be more App stores for Windows 8 like Android!

My 8GB SD Card can't mount when I insert it on my Lenovo A536, when it boots it just says "Damaged SD Card - SD card is damaged. Try reformatting" but when I click "format sd card" it does nothing and when I plugged in on my Windows 7 Laptop it doesn't read. USB Storage does nothing. Help!

A:I can't fix my SD Card on Android and on Windows 7

In the PH I found a lot of SD cards are defective they break after a few days of use, MyPhone and Cherry Mobile cell phones are good at destroying SD cards also... Best to check and see if your cell phone will recognise a different SD card and also make sure your laptop can just to remove the possibility that the problem is with the device rather than the card...

Sometimes if you blow in the slot of your laptop where the SD card inserts into it will read, also try a different adapter the TDK one's seem to be about the best another trick is to quickly insert and eject it a few times... If your lucky it will read and you might be able to copy your data over but mostly you will not be able to but at least if the laptop can see it then in most cases it will format and work again... If none of the above works then it's defective SD card...

Seven times out of ten though by trying all of that I can normally get them to function again and I tell the owner not to allow people to borrow the SD card again and plug it into their virus ridden dodgy cell phones...

I'm not sure when this problem started happening, but recently, when I plug in or unplug the power of my Galaxy S4, the computer will wake from sleep. I'm running CyanogenMod 11 on it, which is based on Android 4.4.2. I haven't installed or configured any apps on my PC to allow for this, nor any apps on the phone.

Anyone know why this is happening and how I can stop it?
