Setting up branch office need professional ITs

Q: Setting up branch office need professional ITs

Hey I am helping a family member setup a network and need help.

the setup is as follows

Store "A"
Store "B"
"Main office"

He wants to let Store A & B use the main sale software which is located in the Main Office. How can we do this, should I just setup a VPN for both stores so that they can login to the main office or would I need a back-end server. Thanks

Preferred Solution: Setting up branch office need professional ITs

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 a problem installing MS Office Professional 2007.

Here are the details:
1. HP dv4-4141us laptop computer
2. Running Windows 7
3. I bought and downloaded Microsoft Office Professional 2007. Includes Access, Excel, Outlook, Powerpoint, Publisher, Word --- all 2007 versions
4. The software downloaded alright.
5. When I then clicked on MS Office Excel 2007 in "All Programs", it started configuring it.
6. After configuration was done, Setup window popped up, "In order to complete setup, a system reboot is necessary. Would you like to reboot now?"
7. I clicked on Yes, and a window opened up saying: "1 program still needs to close: Waiting for Microsoft Office Professional 2007. This program is preventing Windows from restarting." The options were "Force Restart" or "Cancel".
8. I then clicked on "Cancel" and the following error message popped up:
"Error 1719: The Windows Installer Service could not be accessed. This can occur if the Windows Installer is not correctly installed. Contact your support personnel for assistance."

I want to connect my main office with 5 branch offices, all branches have windows 2000 or 2003 server, wich would be the best way (and economic) to do this...

-Via Sofware (ISA Server or Windows) or
-Via Hardware ($$$)

What would be the mains problems of doing it via software???

A:Connect Branch Office Via VPN

The way I do it for a chain of doctors offices is through linksys VPN routers. Yes there are better ways, but we run a practice management software on a unix server using an emulation software so we don't send and recieve a lot of data. But the linksys VPN routers also use netbios so the machine son the other end are in your network neighborhood. It just depends on what you need to do over that VPN connection. Oh, and you need a static WAN IP address from your ISP at the main location.

Hi all

I have a branch office that uses a low grade home router vpn link to connect to our main office this causes very slow response time when users are connecting to mapped drives.

Im thinking of going the rodc route further down the road when we go to server 2008 to improve log on times, but a rodc to my understanding does not have anything to do with the mapped drives as its not a full copy of the main office DC.

For now id like to speed up the access times to the mapped drives for the branch office users, Im musing over having them stored locally on a pc hooked onto their network and then somehow have the changes mirrored to the main office.

Anyone got an idea?

Thanks for reading

A:Branch office slow link

What are the specifics of your branch office's internet connection? What is slow for the users with mapped drives? Is it mounting the network share and/or the actual file transfers? What router are we talking about?

I hope you're aware that many low grade VPN routers suffer drastic performance issues when they have to do any type of encrypted traffic. You can have a VPN router perform at say around 20 to 30 Mbps of routed throughput but only do about 1 to 2 Mbps when moving data across a VPN tunnel. Also, you may have to manually adjust your MTU settings on both ends of the VPN tunnel to account for fragmentation and overhead of the VPN tunnel.

Depending on the speed of your remote branch Internet connection, it may be worth the expense to upgrade the router to see if this helps. It'll be cheaper than the other alternative which is to implement a WAN acceleration product.

I have been trying to confirm whether Win10 support BOPD printing in the same way as Win8.1 did and described here;


All the references I can find talk about win8 and 8.1 and none mention Win10.

If Win10 doesn't support this does anyone know of a utility that can replicate this feature? I have lots of small offices on thin WANs that will need to print and I would like to get rid of local print servers when we move to Office 365.

Another branch office is opening soon, that will have a 8 more nodes (computer) and
again this office will have its own ADSL connection via a router.
I want to have it so, users in the new office van VPN on to the 2K3 small business server and operate as if they were sitting in the main office.

Good Evening Everyone,

I have a few questions concerning the Installation of 2010 Office. I know that I have to uninstall Office 2007. I have no clue on how to save or where to save my documents from Office 2007. The documents consist of Word, Excel, Powerpoint and a few various folders. Should I from the Start Menue click on Documents select all and copy. Where should I place this copy? Can It be left on my hard drive? After I install Office 2010 can I then copy the "Document File" and place in Documents. Will all the files end up in the proper place for their programs, Word files go to Word, Excel goes to Excel so on and so forth. Thank you so much for all your help and cooperation. It is greatly appreciated. I hope I described my situation correctly. I look forward to hearing from you.

A:2010 Office Professional Plus to Replace 2007 Office Small Business

But you don't have to uninstall Office 2007 to upgrade to 2010. That's the general rule as you can generally upgrade from lower SKUs to higher SKUs (Small Business to Pro Plus). As far as saving your documents, you can really save them wherever you like on your hard drive or on any CD or flash drive if you wish to do so. As far as file types, after 2010 is installed, they should all register properly for their programs so that Word documents open in Word, Excel Documents in Excel, etc.

Though if you have all of you documents already saved within "Documents" or "My Documents" or some other folder you've set aside and you want to uninstall 2007 before upgrading to 2010, the documents themselves will be retained when you uninstall, you just won't be able to really do much with them until you install 2010.

Hi - I am working on an MS XP which I bought second hand from a computer fix-it place. The computer came with Office Small Business. Since this computer has Access on it, I ---- in all my infinite questionable wisdom --- decided to teach myself this application. But, the Access wizards require Office 2000 SR-1 Professional. Can you tell me how to get Office Professional? I've been unemployed since February and not looking forward to paying for anything these days -- will it cost me? Do I need to remove Small Business before loading Professional? Should I just forget it and work with whatever I can with Small Business? Thank you for your infinite wisdom.

I have just installed the above evrsion of windows 7 onmy laptop after three days of hassle getting SP1 installed.

I wanted to get Windows Explorer to open D:\ when it starts and I also wanted to get rid of Favorites from the left-hand panel when it opens.

To make it start on drive D:, I right-clicked on the icon on the task bar, then right-clicked on 'Windows Explorer and the selected properties. I the "Target" box I put:

%windir%\explorer.exe /n, /e, /select, D:\
The result was - nothing had changed.

Next, I tried to remove "Favorites" from the navigation pane by following the method that was published by Brink on 15th November 2009. This involved editing a registry key. However, although I am, at the moment, the only user of this machine and have, apparently, Administrator privileges, I was unable to edit the key as I got "Access Denied" The key in question is:

If anyone can help, I would be very grateful. Ideally, i woud like to click on the windows Explorer icon and get the left hand panel displaying just C: and D: with D: open and expanded. Asking for the moon, I am beginning to think!

Hello Chris,

If you like, you could just use D:\ as the target to have it open directly to D.

To remove Favorites, you would need to repeat steps 4 to 6 for that registry location as well to set that key's permissions to "Allow" you "Full control" before it will let you modify it.

Favorites - Add or Remove from Navigation Pane

Hi, I must confess that I don't know much about computers or about RAM, but I will tell you my problem. Recently I decided to get a RAM upgrade...and it just so happened that the RAM was compatible and everything worked out fine...HOWEVER, I forgot to change the virtual memory settings on my computer.

I loaded a program and set the program's hash table to a level higher than the amount of virtual memory I originally had on my computer (before the upgrade). To make a long story short, the screen froze (went blue) and then Windows XP Professional informed me that it was altering the virtual memory settings for me. Then everything went back to normal and I went back to the program. I thought all was fixed.

Next time I open the program, the program begins to access all the RAM and virtual memory on my computer (the hash table was well over 1 gigabyte)...and I could do nothing to stop it. The program, which normally takes 5 seconds to load, now takes 5 minutes, and it keeps crashing because it's using up all the memory. I believe this kind of program is called a "memory leaker." Anyway, I altered the memory settings again (now the virtual memory i have is the amount "suggested" by the operating system, but the problem persists. I tried deleting the program and then reloading it onto my computer, but that doesn't change anything.

I need some advice here. Is it the program that is at fault? Is it the operating system? Is it the virtual m... Read more

Izzy, since you didn't get an answer from the experts, perhaps you can check if these are big (do you use dialup?). I just looked in Add/Remove programs, and for Office 2003 professional which I got in 2004, I have these:
KB907417, KB892843, ServicePack2, KB911961. I think they were cumulative, not sure. I do not recall them being particularily big or slow to download or install. Perhaps you can check the sizes. It might be funny if it took you longer to check that than actually do the upgrades. I don't know if there's a way for me to find out the sizes on my computer, because then I'd tell ya.

This is my 1st post. After spending 4 hours researching an issue online I've decided that this is the place to get real and relevant answers. Rather than tack onto very old threads, I thought I'd start a new one as I have one specific problem. I'm running MS Office XP Pro, which is quite sufficient for my needs, and I use Word every day. I'm the only user so my PC has a simple set-up. In Documents (Public) I keep folders of photos. If I want to email a folder of photos to someone, I compress the folder and attach it as a zip file to an email. I have triple-checked the settings in Properties and nothing is locked/encrypted/restricted. Yet the recipient can't gain access to the downloaded zip file. Is this likely to be a compatibility issue at my end or the recipient's end? Or could it be a security software issue? I don't want to switch to using Open Office or whatever it's called.

My computer knowledge is very basic. A couple of years ago I moved from much-loved Windows XP to Windows 7 Home Premium and am now fairly comfortable with it. I'm self-taught and learn through experience - mostly by way of trial and error!

I would greatly appreciate any genuine advice.

A:Compatibility with MS Office XP Professional

You won't like this advice but you really need to get off XP and upgrade to a newer OS. XP hasn't been supported since early last year and is now subject to virus and other malware infections. You can still buy OEM copies of Win 7 Home Premium or Win 7 Pro if you look around a little (here in the U.S., Newegg still sells them); that is the one most likely to be compatible with your system.

Also, what version (year) of MS Office Pro are you using?

I think I already know the answer to this but I will ask to be sure. I just obtained Office 2003 directly from Microsoft through their Partnership Program. I installed it on one of my test machines at home. I totally forgot about it needing to be activated. The main question is this. If I activate it on that machine...I will not be able to put it on my main computer right?? Basically I have heard that when you activate it, thats it, you can not put it on any other machine.

Thank for your time,


A:Office 2003 Professional

Basically correct.

Most "full versions" allow activation on the one PC, and will usually allow a second activation on another PC on the basis that you can have it on a portable (laptop) as well, on the understanding that they are not used at the same time. Read the EULA for your version.

There is no checking that the second activation is actually on a laptop and not a desktop though. So basically a full version should allow 2 activations.

There is a suggestion that the MS activation database is reset after about 4 months and a further activation could be made but that is not documented or proven.

Hello all - Unwittingly, I installed Microsoft Office Professional Plus 2007 on a computer that alread had Office 97 including Outlook Express. I know now that I should have removed the old before installing the new because every time I start Word 2007, I get a message that says: Please wait while set-up prepares the necessary files. Then comes a screeen with a progress bar that says: Configuration Process - Configuring Microsoft Office Professional 2007. This configuration takes an average of 3 minutes and then it's ready. The other components of 2007 like Excel, Publisher, Power Point, Outlook, etc.all start instantly. I know that I have to delete office 97 which in turn will adversely affect Office 2007 so I will then have to delete it as well and reinstall it. My question is, how do I keep from losing my contacts and address book in Outlook while both suites are off the computer and until I can reinstall Office 2007 by itself? Am I overlooking doing anything else to be proactive in advance to accomplishing what needs to be done? Thanks!

Whats your OS? When you go to "Add/Remove Programs" does it list both Word 97 and 2007? Before removing anything make sure all data is backed up. Look in the programs files for your data, I am not to sure where 97 hids the files.

I recently tried to install a copy of office 2000 professional on a windows 98se machine. The installation seemed to go fine, but whenever I opened an office application like Word or Access it worked for a few seconds and then disappeared off the screen. I know it sounds strange and I have never seen anything like it. Help please.

No problem -- known issue.

I have Windows XP and I have Office Professional 2003. I downloaded the Trial 2007 Office Pro from Microsoft's website, but after trying decided I really didn't like it so I uninstalled it. Even before I unistalled when ever I opened a 2003 application the Windows installer would pop up. Now that I have uninstalled 2007, my 2003 won't open, it is like it isn't there (although I went to the control panel and it was there). The Windows Installer pops up no matter what I try to do, even logging on to the internet.

I went into the control panel where you can add and remove programs and 2003 is still there. I tried restoring back to a previous date, but that wouldn't work.

Can anyone tell me how to get the Installer to stop popping up, and how can I get the system to recognize my 2003 Office Software?

Do you still have the install disks for 2003?

If so remove 2003 & anything to do with it and 2007 and reinstall from the disk.

Can anyone please tell me where I can download

Hi riptorn,

Why 2003? 2007 offers A LOT more and also allows people to open the new "x" documents from office which are common these days. He can download the 2007 version from Microsoft Product Information Center - Trial Software. It also allows you to save your files in old office extensions in case he needs to.

P.S. Been to Malaysia a couple of times... LOVE KL (not so much Terenganu or west Malaysia). Petronas Towers ROCK (had meetings in middle floors).
