DB Find specific item based on itemproperty

Trying to loop through some items in the registry to find the one that contains an itemproperty with a specific value (VMware Tools). I was thinking this would work:
Get-Item -Path HKLM:\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Uninstall\* | Where-Object {(Get-ItemProperty -Path $_ -Name DisplayName) -match VMware Tools}

But it just loops through with an error for each item saying
Get-ItemProperty : Cannot find path 'C:\_scripts\HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Uninstall\{ED98ABF5-B6BF-47ED-92AB-1CDCAB964447}'
because it does not exist.

At line:1 char:95
... Where-Object {(Get-ItemProperty -Path $_ -Name DisplayName) -match VMware Too ...
CategoryInfo : ObjectNotFound: (C:\_scripts\HKE...B-1CDCAB964447}:String) [Get-ItemProperty], ItemNotFoundException
FullyQualifiedErrorId : PathNotFound,Microsoft.PowerShell.Commands.GetItemPropertyCommand

The guid changes for each error. What am I missing here?

DB UK Resident - should I open a $US paypal account

Hi Folks,

I already have a GBP (pounds sterling paypal account), and I receive money to that account.

Someone has paid me in US$, so I am now wondering whether toconvert this payment into GBP, or perhaps open a US$ account.

My questions are:

1) I get quite a few payments from the US, sowould ithelp me/my customersby havinga US$ account?

2) When I get the paypal option to hold the payment as US$ (as opposed to convert to GBP), does this enable me to open a paypal account in US$, and (more significantly)will there be a detrimental side to this? Like exchange rates/fees etc..

3) IfI accept the US$ payment, and open a US$ paypal account, do I have to go through the hassle of registering my personal details again, or will this just be picked up from my existing GBP sterling account?

Hope that makes sense.

Thanks for any help offered.

Kind regards,

DB Connection Dropping

For tha last couple of weeks my connection has been dropping when watching say Utube via the internet my laptop keep "re buffering" I've also noticed that sometimes I can't connect wirelessly have to unplug my wirless router.. wait a minute then plug back in. I can usually connect then.

I've been onto sky we've changed the channel settings on the router.. they've checked everything ..line, setup etc all's fine.

They've finally come up with the excuse that there is a general connection problem in my area, Cheshire North Wales, and that they are trying to deal with it.

Is this just a fob off... and would my problems indicate there's something wrong with the router. We've had the router for 3 yrs (SKY netgear) and up to now it's been fine.

DB Infinite loop error causing blue screens.

about 4mo ago i was given a beastly intel core2 quad core computer that ran smoothly. soon after getting it, windows automatically downloaded service pack 3 for XP. Immediately after i began to encounter the infinite loop error. I assumed that the service
pack was the root cause and attempted to roll it back with no avail. Two days ago i purchased and installed 7 hoping to reach a solution. The computer seemed to work well for an hour or so then the Blue screen started to occur again. I believe now that the
loop is somehow caused by an interaction with the slr connected Gforce 9800Pro graphic cards because of the way the screen bugs out just before going blue. Right now i'm running safe mode with networking and it seems to be fine but this is only a limited fix.
IF you have an suggestions that might be helpful, or have encountered the same problem and solved it, I'd love to hear about it. So far I've tried disabling slrso only the master graphic card is running and i've tried updating the drivers.
Thankyou for any help or ideas.

DB Execution speed improvements of FGV over locals

This my first post. I am new to LabVIEW and am currently writing my first significant application. I am actually modifying an existing application, but am adding additional functionality.

I have read this VI Execution Speed article but still have questions http://zone.ni.com/reference/en-XX/help/371361H-01/lvconcepts/vi_execution_speed/

As an example, I am populating an xy plot with severalsets of data, such as saved data points and a curve fit. I am currently using a case structure to decide when to write various elements. As an example, I only write the curve fit one time and it remains static asother pieces of data are added to the graph.In an attempt to make things faster I did not want to redo and redrawthe fit each time. Iam using locals within the case to populate the graph. In the default case nothing if written to these locals (and I assume the graph is not redrawn)?

I now realize that instead using a case in which nothing is written, I could use a feedback node (to write the previous case).The in addition, in place of using a local, I could use a Functional Global Variable.

Would it be better to have several cases which write locals to populate the plot and one case which writes nothing OR Have the several cases write to a FGV and then a default case which writes the last data to the FGV via a feedback node?

The first seems like less load as nothing is written in the default case, but the other cases do write to a local which has a front panel object that I don't need or want.

Iis there any benefit to hiding unused front panel objects?

Is there a way to create a local without front panel object?

Finally, with a tabbed UI, are objects on the non active tabs being redrawn and slowing the process?

DB RMI-IIOP over OC4J standalone

I'm a beginner of J2EE technology, with specific regard to EJB programming. I'm thoroughly reading "Mastering EJB II e." and the Oracle PDF A95879 (OC4J Service Guide):
I'm having some strange behaviors when I try to run the examples about RMI-IIOP/JNDI located in the appendixes of the first book. I'm using OC4J standalone

Namely, the following code runs smoothly:

import java.util.*;
import javax.naming.*;

public class Startup {
public static void main (String args[]) {
try {

// LDAP-JNDI parameters setting - COMMON PART
PKGenerator generator = new PKGenerator();
Hashtable env = new Hashtable(4);

// EJB binding - SERVER PART
Context ctx = new InitialContext(env);
ctx.rebind("PKGenerator", generator);
Object obj = ctx.lookup("PKGenerator");

// EJB invoking - CLIENT PART
ctx = new InitialContext(env);
Object remoteObject = ctx.lookup("PKGenerator");
IPKGenerator gen = (IPKGenerator) javax.rmi.PortableRemoteObject.narrow(remoteObject,IPKGenerator.class);

catch (Exception e){

When I separate the "SERVER PART" and the "CLIENT PART" in two distinct classes (of course including the identical "COMMON PART" in both), the client returns the folowing error:

Exception in thread "main" javax.naming.NameNotFoundException: PKGenerator not found
at com.evermind.server.rmi.RMIContext.lookup(RMIContext.java:125)
at javax.naming.InitialContext.lookup(Unknown Source)at Client.main(Client.java:19)

Any ideas? I've foud it quite inexplicable.


N.B.: by the way, another weird thing: if I don't include the "System.exit(0)" statement, the program remains pending...

DB Paying for Blast, never get above 6mbps down and 5 up

I have been paying for Blast with my highspeed internet since day one. I recently started watching streamed movies and the rebuffer or digitize frequently. I started doing speed tests, using xfinity and other test supporters. I have never logged greater than 6mbps on the download nor greater that 5 on the upload. I spoke to the local provider and she verified I had an appropriate modem. It gets power cycled regularly out or frustration. She comped me Showtime for my aggrevation, but I use the computer more than I watch Showtime. I really would like to have my money refunded for the last year of non-service. If Trinidad had any other option than Comcast, I would already have switched.

DB Can a PDF be an app?

1. Can you offer fillable pdf forms as an iphone or an ipad app? Can you store the PDF on the phone?

2.. If you store a PDF in the cloud...can somone access and display the PDF on their phone?

3. Does Adobe have a ist of third party developers we can contract with to create fillable pdf forms?

If we set up the signature field as just a field on the form, the user can touch this field and electronically sign the form.

So we get the power of electronic signatures on a PDF form.

DB Footage speed altered upon ingestion

I just shot a day of performances at a children's music festival. 4 disparate cameras were employed: my panny HPX250, a borrowed panny 170, my 7D and a GoPro Hero3. I'm now ingesting the footage nto FCPX and something crazy has happened that I've never seen nor heard of:All footage was shot 720. (the 250: 24pN, the 170: 24p; the 7D: 720 60i; the GoPro: 720 60i) All footage was ingested into FCPX with the same settings. Despite the different cameras used everything plays well together on a timeline, and I never got one of those warnings about miss-matched footage when dropping one onto a timeline. The problem?: all the clips on from the 170 play back at about half speed. In fact, when I dropped a clip into a timeline and altered the speed 250% looked to be about right but the motion was choppy as tho frames were missing. This would mean, what? In the unaltered clips something like two out of three frames were removed and the remaining clips multiplied? Kind of like putting a strobe effect on proper footage. In addition, the audio is normal speed and it generally ends before the video does on each clip.This problem exists to the very QT files that were created in the Events folder. Play one in the QT player and it too plays slow so something happened on the was from the camera to the hard drive. Any ideas???alan bBTW: only last week I did a clean erinstall of my system upgrading to OS 10.8.3, I did a clean install of FCPX with a new download fro the AppStore. In the middle of these troubles I describe above I also trashed preferences. So...?PS--also, I went back to the 170 and played the footage from the card itself within the camera and it plays back normally and properly.

DB Connecting remote office to DMZ - HELP!!!

We have several remote offices that connect back to corporate via VPN tunnel using 3002 hardware client at remote sites that connects up to 3005. The ip space at remote offices is 10.6.x.x.

We installed a DMZ here at corporate in the 192.168.1.x space and place web servers, etc. in it. Here at corp. we can get to the DMZ devices from our workstations, however the remote sites cannot. Also if I come in from home via software VPN client I cannot get to the DMZ devices.

I am hoping that this is something that can be fixed?
