    schtasks The task XML is malformed.

    Hello, I am trying to import a scheduled task from from the command line to the task scheduler. Before my program runs the schtasks command, it inserts a file path in the <Command></Command> element. The XML file works with schtasks before I insert my file path, but not afterwords. It keeps...

    My mother's laptop has been gradually crashing more and more with SYSTEM_SERVICE_EXCEPTIONs since Windows 10 pushed an upgrade back in October. I published a thread back then to seek support with some other issues the upgrade was causing, but at that time I was unaware of the BSOD errors. My...

    UAC Prompt for Jars

    Is it possible to show a UAC prompt for a Java jar file? I am aware that one can edit an executable's manifest to require an elevated process, but there seems to be no way to do so with a Jar file. I do not want to edit javaw.exe's manifest. Is there a specific file that that can take file...

    My sister put a password on my Wii U, and the only way to get a master key so I can reclaim it is via email. The only problem is, when she changed my pin, she also replaced my email with hers.
