Clashing Cameras and video conferencing.

I have had Zoom fail to connect to the camera on my PC over the last couple of days. Zoom say to make sure that other camera using applications have detached. I used [ctrl][alt][del] to start the task manager and noticed that Teams was still running. So I used the end task button and the camera came on.

Mucking around until it breaks

This took a lot of time, I wanted to reduce the occurrence of my BSOD “UNEXPECTED STORE EXCEPTION“.

I document the reinstallation of packages here. Otherwise here are my notes.

This didn’t work and so I got a new system, which is my 3rd with W10. Here are my notes. …

NWN2 and W10 (2020)

I have a new windows laptop and need to bring my NWN2 game forward from the old machine; both are windows 10, although the new one is 64 bit. I wanted to economise the build’s storage space this time and had to overcome what looks like a 32/64 bit pragma problem; here is what I did.

Configuring W10

Another set of notes on my Microsoft SME network project, this time on the LGPO, the Policy Editor; my first set of links relate to logon/logoff scripts and hopefully scripting configuration changes. Here are my notes. …
