    We don't usually write about simple stuff like PCs, but we thought this might be useful to somebody. It can be hard to put Windows 7 on a laptop that was manufactured with XP or Vista. However, often Windows 7 can be installed, and it can be a very nice result. In this case, it was a little hard to make everything work, but the final result was really good.

    Point to the user. Point ...

    Let's say you are on a web server, and it is x64. You have a powershell script, and a custom powershell addin from your developer.

    You notice odd behavior, that the addin does not load consistently. In my situation, I found that my scheduled task did not work properly. On one system, the script worked correctly from a command line, ...
