Small companies relocate all the time. Many companies appear to get stuck improvising rooms to put the equipment and often end up using a closet. In such cases, poor ventilation ends up causing undo stress of the equipment and bringing some devices to a premature end. I saw one switch that looked like it had partially melted on the bottom. The textured plastic was smooth and discolored. Continue reading
What to do if the Windows 10 June 2017 update hangs on restart. Some people report seeing the progress go up to 28% or so before having issues. This is usually when the Windows reboot is taking forever. A long time has passed and you’re not even sure if it is still working or if it is frozen. Continue reading

Description: We encountered this problem after updating our machines to windows 10 and our lab server to vmware vSphere 6. The client installed but took 10 minutes to load. It would then simply take long enough that we cancelled. Continue reading
I updated a lot of computers to Windows 10 recently as everyone else most likely has, and I ran into a bug which prevents vms running on VMware Workstation 11 (and previous versions) from using bridged networking (bridge connection) to the Network Interface Card (NIC).
It turns out that Microsoft has seen fit to prevent the addition of services to a network card. This means it’s not possible to use a bridge connection until a way is found around this.
Workaround: Use NAT
Just to be clear, this is VMWare Workstation 11 running on Windows 10. The VM itself can be running Windows XP, 7, 8, 8.1 or 10 and still have the connection issue.
It’s not great for all VMs. Let’s hope this is a bug and not by design and that it will be fixed in an upcoming update.
UPDATE: This has been resolved. Simply enable vmware bridge on your NIC in Windows 10.
Even though the betas were rock solid for us, it appears a lot of people are reporting a rather generic message during downloading or installing of Windows 10. The message, as displayed here, is simply telling you that “Something Happened”. It certainly makes me long for the Basic days when a line number would appear and we could at least look there to sort it out.
