Update Password in Remote Desktop Manager RDCMAN

I can never manage to remember how to do this. Simple enough, how do you update your login credentials in Remote Desktop Manager ( RDCMAN )?

Right click on the root node and select Properties.

Select the Security Settings tab, then click on Source: default settings group.
A new window will open, in it, select the Profile Management tab.
Select the account you want to update, click the Edit button on right, then click Ok on the bottom.

All done.

Hyper-V Client Window is Black

New Dell XPS 15
Enabled Hyper-V and tried to create a Server 2012 VM.
Client window was black but the preview window was displaying the correct view of the client OS.
The other fixes that appear on Google did not apply because I was in the process of setting up a new VM.

With Hyper-V running and the client window open.
Open the NVIDIA control panel
Click on Manage 3D settings
1. select a program to customize
Select c:\windows\system32\vmconnect.exe
IF you are not able to select this, click the Add button and locate it in the displayed list of programs.
2. Select the preferred…..
Select Integrated graphics
Click Apply

Now, close the Hyper-V client window and reopen it.

Virtual Box VT-x is not available (VERR_VMX_NO_VMX)

Ran into this error when trying to start my Virtual Box VM: VT-x is not available (VERR_VMX_NO_VMX).

Turns out, enabling Hyper-V on a Windows 10 install messes with Virtual Box (or something). Seeing how there is no real need to run Hyper-V and Virtual Box, I simply disabled Hyper-V (reboot required), and the error went away.

Guess Microsoft and Oracle still can’t get along.

Classic ASP Update Records in Access Error [Microsoft][ODBC Microsoft Access Driver] Operation must use an updateable query.

I was trying to update an Access database from a classic ASP page and encountered this error:

[Microsoft][ODBC Microsoft Access Driver] Operation must use an updateable query.

The fix is outlined here:


In a modern OS, you need add the local IUSR account to the folder that holds your database.  The account will need read and write access.

Who knew that classic ASP was so much fun to work with?

List of Classic ASP Errors

Oh what fun it is to update a classic ASP site…

The link below outlines a bunch of common errors and a little detail about each.

Number ErrorValueEnum constant Description/Possible causes
3000 adErrProviderFailed Provider failed to perform the requested operation.
3001 adErrInvalidArgument Arguments are of the wrong type, are out of acceptable range, or are in conflict with one another. This error is often caused by a typographical error in an SQL SELECT statement. For example, a misspelled field name or table name can generate this error. This error can also occur when a field or table named in a SELECT statement does not exist in the data store.
3002 adErrOpeningFile File could not be opened. A misspelled file name was specified, or a file has been moved, renamed, or deleted. Over a network, the drive might be temporarily unavailable or network traffic might be preventing a connection.
3003 adErrReadFile File could not be read. The name of the file is specified incorrectly, the file might have been moved or deleted, or the file might have become corrupted.
3004 adErrWriteFile Write to file failed. You might have closed a file and then tried to write to it, or the file might be corrupted. If the file is located on a network drive, transient network conditions might prevent writing to a network drive.
3021 adErrNoCurrentRecord Either BOF or EOF is True, or the current record has been deleted. Requested operation requires a current record.

An attempt was made to update records by using Find or Seek to move the record pointer to the desired record. If the record is not found, EOF will be True. This error can also occur after a failed AddNew or Delete because there is no current record when these methods fail.

3219 adErrIllegalOperation Operation is not allowed in this context.
3220 adErrCantChangeProvider Supplied provider is different from the one already in use.
3246 adErrInTransaction Connection object cannot be explicitly closed while in a transaction. A Recordset or Connection object that is currently participating in a transaction cannot be closed. Call either RollbackTrans or CommitTrans before closing the object.
3251 adErrFeatureNotAvailable The object or provider is not capable of performing the requested operation. Some operations depend on a particular provider version.
3265 adErrItemNotFound Item cannot be found in the collection corresponding to the requested name or ordinal. An incorrect field or table name has been specified.
3367 adErrObjectInCollection Object is already in collection. Cannot append. An object cannot be added to the same collection twice.
3420 adErrObjectNotSet Object is no longer valid.
3421 adErrDataConversion Application uses a value of the wrong type for the current operation. You might have supplied a string to an operation that expects a stream, for example.
3704 adErrObjectClosed Operation is not allowed when the object is closed. The Connection or Recordset has been closed. For example, some other routine might have closed a global object. You can prevent this error by checking the State property before you attempt an operation.
3705 adErrObjectOpen Operation is not allowed when the object is open. An object that is open cannot be opened. Fields cannot be appended to an open Recordset.
3706 adErrProviderNotFound Provider cannot be found. It may not be properly installed.

The name of the provider might be incorrectly specified, the specified provider might not be installed on the computer where your code is being executed, or the installation might have become corrupted.

3707 adErrBoundToCommand The ActiveConnection property of a Recordset object, which has a Command object as its source, cannot be changed. The application attempted to assign a new Connection object to a Recordset that has a Command object as its source.
3708 adErrInvalidParamInfo Parameter object is improperly defined. Inconsistent or incomplete information was provided.
3709 adErrInvalidConnection The connection cannot be used to perform this operation. It is either closed or invalid in this context.
3710 adErrNotReentrant Operation cannot be performed while processing event. An operation cannot be performed within an event handler that causes the event to fire again. For example, navigation methods should not be called from within a WillMove event handler.
3711 adErrStillExecuting Operation cannot be performed while executing asynchronously.
3712 adErrOperationCancelled Operation has been canceled by the user. The application has called the CancelUpdate or CancelBatch method and the current operation has been canceled.
3713 adErrStillConnecting Operation cannot be performed while connecting asynchronously.
3714 adErrInvalidTransaction Coordinating transaction is invalid or has not started.
3715 adErrNotExecuting Operation cannot be performed while not executing.
3716 adErrUnsafeOperation Safety settings on this computer prohibit accessing a data source on another domain.
3717 adWrnSecurityDialog For internal use only. Don’t use. (Entry was included for the sake of completeness. This error should not appear in your code.)
3718 adWrnSecurityDialogHeader For internal use only. Don’t use. (Entry included for the sake of completeness. This error should not appear in your code.)
3719 adErrIntegrityViolation Data value conflicts with the integrity constraints of the field. A new value for a Field would cause a duplicate key. A value that forms one side of a relationship between two records might not be updatable.
3720 adErrPermissionDenied Insufficient permission prevents writing to the field. The user named in the connection string does not have the proper permissions to write to a Field.
3721 adErrDataOverflow Data value is too large to be represented by the field data type. A numeric value that is too large for the intended field was assigned. For example, a long integer value was assigned to a short integer field.
3722 adErrSchemaViolation Data value conflicts with the data type or constraints of the field. The data store has validation constraints that differ from the Field value.
3723 adErrSignMismatch Conversion failed because the data value was signed and the field data type used by the provider was unsigned.
3724 adErrCantConvertvalue Data value cannot be converted for reasons other than sign mismatch or data overflow. For example, conversion would have truncated data.
3725 adErrCantCreate Data value cannot be set or retrieved because the field data type was unknown, or the provider had insufficient resources to perform the operation.
3726 adErrColumnNotOnThisRow Record does not contain this field. An incorrect field name was specified or a field not in the Fields collection of the current record was referenced.
3727 adErrURLDoesNotExist Either the source URL or the parent of the destination URL does not exist. There is a typographical error in either the source or destination URL. You might have http://mysite/photo/myphoto.jpg when you should actually have http://mysite/photos/myphoto.jpg instead. The typographical error in the parent URL (in this case, photo instead of photos) has caused the error.
3728 adErrTreePermissionDenied Permissions are insufficient to access tree or subtree. The user named in the connection string does not have the appropriate permissions.
3729 adErrInvalidURL URL contains invalid characters. Make sure the URL is typed correctly. The URL follows the scheme registered to the current provider (for example, Internet Publishing Provider is registered for http).
3730 adErrResourceLocked Object represented by the specified URL is locked by one or more other processes. Wait until the process has finished and attempt the operation again. The object you are trying to access has been locked by another user or by another process in your application. This is most likely to arise in a multi-user environment.
3731 adErrResourceExists Copy operation cannot be performed. Object named by destination URL already exists. Specify adCopyOverwrite to replace the object. If you do not specify adCopyOverwrite when copying the files in a directory, the copy fails when you try to copy an item that already exists in the destination location.
3732 adErrCannotComplete The server cannot complete the operation. This might be because the server is busy with other operations or it might be low on resources.
3733 adErrVolumeNotFound Provider cannot locate the storage device indicated by the URL. Make sure the URL is typed correctly. The URL of the storage device might be incorrect, but this error can occur for other reasons. The device might be offline or a large volume of network traffic might prevent the connection from being made.
3734 adErrOutOfSpace Operation cannot be performed. Provider cannot obtain enough storage space. There might not be enough RAM or hard-drive space for temporary files on the server.
3735 adErrResourceOutOfScope Source or destination URL is outside the scope of the current record.
3736 adErrUnavailable Operation failed to complete and the status is unavailable. The field may be unavailable or the operation was not attempted. Another user might have changed or deleted the field you are trying to access.
3737 adErrURLNamedRowDoesNotExist Record named by this URL does not exist. While attempting to open a file using a Record object, either the file name or the path to the file was misspelled.
3738 adErrDelResOutOfScope The URL of the object to be deleted is outside the scope of the current record.
3747 adErrCatalogNotSet Operation requires a valid ParentCatalog.
3748 adErrCantChangeConnection Connection was denied. The new connection you requested has different characteristics than the one already in use.
3749 adErrFieldsUpdateFailed Fields update failed. For further information, examine the Status property of individual field objects. This error can occur in two situations: when changing a Field object’s value in the process of changing or adding a record to the database; and when changing the properties of the Field object itself.

The Record or Recordset update failed due to a problem with one of the fields in the current record. Enumerate the Fields collection and check the Status property of each field to determine the cause of the problem.

3750 adErrDenyNotSupported Provider does not support sharing restrictions. An attempt was made to restrict file sharing and your provider does not support the concept.
3751 adErrDenyTypeNotSupported Provider does not support the requested kind of sharing restriction. An attempt was made to establish a particular type of file-sharing restriction that is not supported by your provider. See the provider’s documentation to determine what file-sharing restrictions are supported.

The breakpoint will not currently be hit. No symbols have been loaded for this document

You will find a lot of different ways to solve this error, but this worked for me.

Working in Visual Studio set a break point.
Hit F5 or Start Debugging.

IE will open.
Start a new InPrivate Browsing IE session (ctrl+Shift+p).
From your first IE session, copy the URL and paste it into your InPrivate session and load the site.

Browse to the item that will trigger your breakpoint.

That’s it.

After doing the above sets, I didn’t see the The breakpoint will not currently be hit. No symbols have been loaded for this document error again.

Using Chrome or Firefox also helped with avoiding this error.

Server 2012 Install the .NET 3.5 Framework Feature – The source files could not be found

Was trying to enable the .NET 3.5 Framework Feature on Windows Server 2012.

Received this error:
The source files could not be found
The request to add or remove features on the specified server failed. ……..

I tried the command line idea, PowerShell, and copying the files from the install media.
All failed.

The issue??
No internet connection!

If you hit all the wall I did, try connecting the box / VM to the web.
