Server 2016 – Using Edge with the built-in Administrator

When you’re logged in with local Administrator on a Windows Server 2016 box, you can’t start the Edge browser.

Default security will prevent you from using the Edge browser and suggests you to login with a different user.

2016-edge-buildin-admin

To workaround this, you can follow these instructions:

  1.  (windows+r) run gpedit.msc
  2. go to: Computer configuration -> Windows Settings -> Security Settings -> Local Policies -> Security Options -> User Account Control: Admin Approval Mode for the Built-in Administrator account -> Enabled
  3. Reboot the Windows Server 2016 box (windows+r -> shutdown /r /t 0)
  4. enjoy using Edge with the local administrator account

Installing printer driver failed, error code 0x2, HRESULT 0x80070057

Last week we had a print spooler problem on a XenApp 7.6/Server 2012R2 farm. The print spooler service grew to a whopping 16GB of Memory. The problem was related to a mix of old Ricoh and Kyocera drivers.
After upgrading to new drivers the problem of the spooler was resolved. But on one machine the Ricoh Universal Print driver could not be installed. We received the following error:

Installing printer driver – failed, error code 0x57, HRESULT 0x80070057. See the event user data for context information. Installing printer driver – failed, error code 0x57, HRESULT 0x80070057. See the event user data for context information.

Uninstalling software with RES Automation Manager produces unexpected results.

A customer asked what options are there to uninstall software using RES Automation Manager. In this case he wanted to remove Java 64bit.
I explained how you can uninstall software by using the GUID of the package and how you can read that GUID from a remote server.

Sometime later, the server from which he thought he uninstalled Java 64bit, was no longer responding to Citrix Sessions.
As it turned out, RES Automation Manager did not uninstall the Java 64bit package but removed Citrix HDX TS (retail).
