Very simple question, how do you configure windows 8.1 to use a SF card as the default install location for software applications?

Very simple question, how do you configure windows 8.1 to use a SD card / external drive as the default install location for software applications? Primarily interested in apps installed from the windows store. This should be available in the settings
charm within the windows store. This must have been overlooked in the development of windows 8.1 or is a bug.

I've tried modifying this key and the path:
“HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Appx”

The registry method does not work with 8.1.  I found this out the hard way.  Doing it on 8.1 will leave you reinstalling the OS if you didn't do a SRP beforehand.

  • HT4753 I have a very simple question: how do I view where Lion has autosaved my current version to (without the convoluted route of using finder)? In days gone by i'd simply use the save as function to see where it was being saved.

    I have a very simple question: how do I view where Lion has autosaved my current version to (without the convoluted route of using finder)? In days gone by i'd simply use the save as function to see where it was being saved.

    It's actually even easier than using Save As to see the full path to the currently open document. Just do a "Secondary click" on the document title in its window's title bar.
    Like you, I relied upon Save As my whole life to check a file's location and considered it a must-have capability. Turns out it's even faster to use the single-click method to reveal the full path to the open document. It displays the entire path to the current document starting from the level of your Mac, and works for files stored on drives as well as iCloud.
    If you're not sure how to do a secondary click, go into System Preferences, select Trackpad, Point & Click to find the current preference for secondary click on your Mac. If you happen to have a mouse with more than one button, it's probably the right button. As a trackpad user, I check the box to "Click or tap with two fingers," so a simple two finger tap on the title of an open document reveals its full path. This feature actually has been around for a very long time.
    Note that this is not the same thing as the Autosave and Versions menu, which is exposed using a little drop down triangle to the right of the title. There is no visual clue for the presence of this feature - you just have to know it's there, probably because this feature goes all the way back to pre-OS X days.

  • Simple question - How do you make an onchange event occur in a select list

    Simple question - How do you make an onchange event occur in a select list to fire a process?
    Thanks

    1) Using ApEx Selec list on Submit Item.
    You will create a PL/SQL Process after Submit. -> Conditional Type Request = Expression1. -> Expression1 is the name of your Select List. Process Source - > Procedure you like. For example depending of your select List value you will add rows in different tables.
    2) Javascript This example will change a System parameter value when changed
    <select id="P3_SUBSYSTEM" onchange="location.href='f?p=101:3:2164422329953284::NO::P3_SUBSYSTEM:'+this.options[selectedIndex].value;" size="1" name="p_t21">

  • How to enlarge the memory in Microblaze for software applications?

    Dear, I wrote a C program, which after compiled generates a ELF binary with around 85KB. However, it is known that the Microblaze by default uses only 64KB. So my question is how can I enlarge the memory in Microblaze for software applications? The application does not use any kind of buffer or data that could be stored in another block memory. The size is larger due to the complexity of the algorithm in question. Is there any way to increase the default block memory in Microblaze? BR,Rodolfo Lossio

There is no "default." To change the amount of BRAM after creating the project: in the EDK, click on the "addresses" tab. Look for the instance of xps_bram_if_ctrl. Change its size using the drop-down combo box. Note that you can only do this in powers-of-two, so if you've already allocated 64 kB the next option is 128 kB. Make sure your FPGA has enough BRAMs to do this!

  • [svn] 3148: You can now use CSS styles to set the default text format for TextView.

    Revision: 3148

    Log Message:
    You can now use CSS styles to set the default text format for TextView. It no longer has any formatting properties. It supports the entire set of Gumbo text format styles.
    SkinnableComponent and Group now also support all these styles. However, skins such as ButtonSkin, TextInputSkin, and TextAreaSkin continue for now to specify instance styles on their TextBox, TextGraphic, and TextView, in order to give them a Gumbo look rather than a Halo look. So if you try setting, for example, the fontSize on the Application, it doesn't yet affect the text format of a Button, TextInput, TextArea, etc. unless you remove the instance style in the skin.

  • Very simple question-how to fill a shape I draw with color

    hi. I am new to photoshop and having a lot of trouble selecting any shape that I draw. I am trying to do a tutorial that involves filling a canvas with gray, then drawing a smaller white rectangle inside of the larger gray canvas/rectangle. (I did not forget to unlock the background).
    My question: how do i select and fill (with white) the second rectangle I draw on top of the larger gray rectangle???
    In general, I cannot figure out how to select and/or fill any shape I draw using the rectangle tool. Likewise, the marque shape tools are no help as I cannot seem to draw a marque on my gray rectangle in order to select it and fill it with a white fill. I have also tried to use a "fill layer."
    I am almost certain that something is wrong with my computer(I reset the settings), but then again I have not used photoshop in over a year. Any help  will be greatly appreciated.

    The Rectangle Tool sgould create a Work Path, Shape Layer or Fill Pixels according to the Settings in the Options Bar.
    The Rectangular Marquee Tool should create a Selection, which you could Edit > Fill or use as a Layer Mask for a Solid Color Layer.
    Could you please post a screenshot with the pertinent Panels visible?

  • How do I change the default save location for new files in Pages back from iCloud to my Documents folder?

    I just upgraded OSX to Mountain Lion and Pages to 4.2, and because OSX is syncing with my iCloud account, when I go to save a new file in Pages it defaults to try to save to my iCloud account rather than giving me the folder structure on my hard-drive that I prefer. It requires two extra steps to save to the proper place in my Documents folder on my hard drive.
    Is there a way to reset the default so that when I go to save a new file, the folder structure opens to the last saved folder (like it does in other non-iCloud applications) rather than defaulting to my iCloud, and to do it without just removing documents from my iCloud account entirely?
    I checked the Preferences for both Pages and iCloud and found nothing about this.

    What I meant is turn off Documents and Data in iCloud in OS X. Keep it on on your iOS devices. iCloud will sync documents between the iOS devices and make them available on the iCloud web site, but it won't mess up iWorks' open and save dialog boxes. It also won't assume that you want all your documents in iCloud, which I think is undesirable anyway.
    Keep iOS and OS X separate, and use the web site to move files between the two as necessary.
    iOS iWork is different from OS X iWork. There are fewer fonts on an iOS device. iOS iWork programs have slightly different feature sets than OS X iWork programs, and the file formats are different. iCloud automatically converts the file format when necessary, but if you make a habit of saving things directly to iCloud, you are limited to the lowest common denominator between the two versions of iWorks. So why would anyone want iWork on the Mac to open and save documents on iCloud by default?
    If you want to store files in the cloud and sync them on your Macs, SugarSync is a much better solution. It lets you choose your sync folders, it doesn't make you reorganize your files, it lets you sync all file types, it doesn't convert files to a different format and back, and it stores everything in the cloud, too. Just the simle act of saving a file backs it up and syncs it. I wouldn't live without it. iCloud is best with iTunes purchases and synchronizing Mac settings and iOS files; I woudln't live without it. The two make an unbeatable combination.

  • A very simple question: how to obtain the mail server name?

    In our JSP application, at one point an email will be sent to notify one event. Currently, that is done by using the html tag: mailto. To have more control on the email in tems of context format (a bad layout right now) and others. I would like to have it processed at servlet by using the JavaMail API, so that it have a nice format and have the sender's email address right in case email client is not installed in the machine where the browser in. The JavaMail API is straight forward. The question is how to obtain the mail server name, and the sender's email address if there is one?
    Thanks.
    v.

    How to obtain the mail server's name? It's your server, you should know its name. Or if it isn't your server, you should ask the administrator for its name. Point is, you need to decide in advance what server you are going to use and hard-code its name into the program or into a properties file.
    And how to obtain the client's e-mail address? You have to ask the client, probably by putting a box in the HTML and asking them to type it.

  • Simple question - how do you do parameter validation if there is no LOV

    I'm sure I'm missing something simple here. I've checked the doc and queried the forum. I have a couple of parameters without any LOV. I have a number that can be from 0-999, and a set of data values (from - to) where they can only be a max of 5 weeks apart. How do I set up the validation for these?
    Thanks!

    Would you believe me if I told we do not currently support simple alphanumeric validation. Its on the list.

  • Simple question - How do you print the Purchase History screen?

    I don't see an option in the file menu and there is no print button.

    There isn't any print button, and I know of no easy way to do it.
    You can use command + shift + 3 to take a screen shot, or command + shift + 4 to take a shot of a portion of your screen.
    Or take a picture of your screen with Grab:
    Open Grab (located in the Utilities folder in the Applications folder) and choose a command from the Capture menu.
    Selection: Takes a picture of a part of the screen that you select.
    Window: Takes a picture of a window you select.
    Screen: Takes a picture of the entire screen.

  • Very Simple Question - How to change to lower case in Comic Book Theme

    I have a site I have created in iWeb08 and used the Comic Book theme but I cannot change the text on the main page to lower case. I have copied and pasted text in and its always UPPER CASE. I have tried changing the font to no avail. I made a new blank page and typed in and again its UPPER CASE. I can change the font to something else (eg Arial) but whatever I type - its in upper case. Can this be changed. It is OK on other themes. Many thanks.

    Bingo. Many thanks. Did not spot that there.

  • How do you set a usb sound card as the default sound device for all programs?

    I'm running cmus for a music player and it works fine with the internal speakers on my macbook pro. I'm using a usb sound card for a set of 5.1 surround speakers and cmus won't send it's audio to the usb sound card. I've also tried several other programs for audio and it seems to be hit or miss with being able to use the usb sound card. I'm not sure if I'm overlooking the a setting or if there is a different audio output plugin for cmus that has the functionality I need. Cmus also won't play over any bluetooth audio device while some other sounds will.

    Yes I did and it does not appear there. Only the ringtones I have created myself and the default ones appear in the list.

  • How do I change the default save location for Preview under Lion?

    I have to modify about 200 PDFs.
    When I make a duplicate of a PDF in Preview it always suggests saving it on the desktop. Instead I would like it to ask me if I want to save it either where the original file is, or where I saved something last.
    Note that Default Folder X doesn't yet work with Preview. And even then it wouldn't solve my problem.

  • How do you change Metro apps default install location?

    I can't seem to find an answer for this any ware, I have a 120gb ssd drive that I use for my os, and some programs. I have another 1.5tb drive that has most of my applications and data. Since space is kind of limited on my ssd drive, I would
    like to change the default install location for metro apps (Microsoft store apps, or what ever it's called) to point to my larger hard drive. I don't see a way of doing this myself, so I figured I would ask here. I also work for a company that
    sells custom built computers, and this is a very popular setup, but I can see this quickly becoming a problem with this type of setup. Any help would be greatly appreciated :D

    Here is what I did. I must warn that I haven't had any issues on my own machine doing this, but you might, so proceed with caution. Also, it's always a good idea to create a restore point before
    starting.
    1. Create a folder on your other drive that you want the applications to install to. I used the same location on my system, only on the other drive. 
    2. Now open up regedit, and go to this location. 
    HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Appx
    3. Now right click on the "Appx" folder, and go to "Permissions"
    4. Click "Advanced", and click "Change" at the top to change the owner.
    5. Type in "Administrators" for the owner, and click ok, then ok again.
    6. This should take you back to the regular permissions window. From here make sure "Administrators" or your user name have "Full Control", and click ok.
    7. Now double click on "PackageRoot", This should bring up the String Editor.
    8. Change the "Value Data" to the new folder you created, and hit ok, and close the registry editor.
    9. Lately, give your machine a reboot, and you should be all set.
    Give me a click if you found this helpful :D 
    I
    did this to no avail.  I am getting error message "this app couldn't be installed" error code 0x80073cfd.
    I
    am doing this on a Windows Surface RT.  Here is what I did:
    1. refreshed Surface to original setup
    2. uninstalled all preinstalled metro apps (could not uninstall store and IE)
    3. updated all windows updates (there's 3 and they are time consuming)
    4. Created the same folders on my SD Card (\Program Files\WindowsApps\)
    5. took ownership over appropriate registry item (HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Appx)
    6. Changed the drive letter for the "PackageRoot" (from C to D on my device)
    7. Shut down (full shut down) and restarted my device
    When I got back in, I tried to install the metro apps and I got the above error.
    Any thoughts as to why?
