How do you update software when there are multiple users with different (unknown) apple ID's?

We are a college with different users borrowing 'loaner' Macbooks.
several users with different ID's have installed software that is now tied to that Machines serial number, and cannot be updated or removed apparently. We are trying to update iPhoto for use with iBook author, but it was installed by an unknown user and cannot be removed.

The only practical solution is to wipe and re-provision the units when they're returned.

  • There are multiple users with the same display name

    We have a user and when she get an item assigned to her she sees the following alert:
    "There are multiple users with the same display name USERNAME and at least one of them does not have read permissions to some of the files"
    Now I looked in the database and when I run the following query with the username:
      FROM [Tfs_Configuration].[dbo].[tbl_Identity] where displayname like '%USERNAME%'  
    Then I get 2 same usernames back, How can I get rid of one of them ? When I access TFS trough the portal I only find 1 occurence of this user.
    We use VS2013 and TFS2013 update 4
    Best regards

    Hi DSW,  
    Thanks for your post.
    In your query result, please check if these two users have the same Account Name. if they are two different Account Name in result, it indicate there’s two users have the same display name in your AD, please check that two users’ information in
    your AD. We suggest change one user’s display name in AD.

  • HT4623 how do you update software when the phone does not have the software update option in settings

    how do i update the software on an iphone 3gs when the software update option is not in the settings on the phone?

    The option to update without the computer (Over the air) was made available with iOS 5. If your iDevice is using a version of iOS lower than 5, you will need to use iTunes on your syncing computer to perform the upgrade. Use the Apple link below as a guide for the upgrade.
    Also read the instructions from the section entitled "Update your device using iTunes" at the link below.
    Information regarding transferring purchases from your iDevice to iTunes on your syncing computer can be found at the link below.

  • When there are multiple users can the email files that are on the left of the screen be hidden from other users?

    There are several people who might want to use Thunderbird on a work computer but I don't like how everyone's email files are open to public view. It looks like anyone can see emails without having to login to another person's account.

    Use different Windows user accounts for each person, and set-up Thunderbird for each person's email account underneath the respective Windows account.
    It is very easy to switch between Windows user accounts, and multiple people can be logged in simultaneously.

  • Grouping when there are multiple subreports with cross tabs

    <p>I have been unsuccessful trying to make a grouping work on the master report when the sub-reports contain cross tabs. All stored procedures used contain the exact grouping field.</p><p>Where am I going wrong?</p><p>Thanks</p>

    Not much, but good call.
    While I'm not too versed in reading them, as I rarely branch out of the Premiere Pro part of the workflow,
    a quick look at the EDL in a text editor names the files by name and then provides the timecodes for cuts,
    and the like. There's no more information there than anywhere else, though it does tell me what parts
    should flow into what parts. I could manually track to the appropriate places in the source files and see if
    the cut makes sense, and then the file with the most sensical cuts is the one I'm looking for, but again
    that would be a really long process, and would have to be repeated for each and every file.
    Definite credit for thinking of it, though. I hadn't thought of what I could glean from there.
    As for crashing, I've been taking it slow trying to not risk making mistakes and needing to go back and
    re-reimport the files, but I'd assume Premiere Pro doesn't like it too much when you ask it to pull footage
    from the fifteenth minute of a twelve-minute clip. I haven't extensively tested it, though, that's why I offered
    the second scenario, in which it works and I have to figure out what's out of place.

  • How do I make a backup when there are 4 users on my mac

    How do I make a backup when there are 4 users on my mac?

    Welcome to the Apple Support Communities
    If you have more than one user, the backup is just the same as if you have one user. All users are backed up and there isn't any difference between a backup made on a Mac with one user and on a Mac with multiple users. Then, if you want to restore that backup in the future, you will be able to select which users you want to restore

  • How to backup a rootenv when there are subfolders with DBs?

    Is there any way to hotbackup a rootenv with databases when there are subfolders with databases?
    When I run a hotbackup (with db_hotbackup) on my rootenv, it only backups databases from the root of my rootenv. But, in that root directory, I have some subdirectories with databases too.
    Thank you.

    If you have root directory as : */your/root/dir*
    and within that you have folders like : */your/root/dir/sub1* and */your/root/dir/sub2* and would want to backup the db files in */your/backup/dir* then, you should invoke db_hotbackup as
    db_hotbackup -cv -b /your/backup/dir -h /your/root/dir -d ../dir/sub1 -d ../dir/sub2

  • How do you fix error message "There is a problem with Adobe Acrobat/Reader. (6:6)

    How does one fix error message "There is a problem with Adobe Acrobat/Reader.
    If it is running, please exit and try again. (6:6) is one example but a whole lot of the material which has been uploaded as pdf files over the last four years is now unviewable - if you click on the link you just get a black page.  The main site url is and our site is the Queens Road Residents Association.  I have just gone through every link on the site and a number of links when clicked on will not bring up the material.  I tried going into Adobe 10 on my computer and disenabling protected mode as was suggested on your forum and at first when I went back into the essex info site it seemed to have worked when I clicked on a link that had only produced a black page.  However when I went back to test all the other links I found that the problem was still re-occuring.  This is really weird as the site and my connections to it which I sometimes make by directly accessing the site and sometime via a link from our QRRA blog have always worked perfectly with no problems up to now.  I downloaded adobe 10.1 on 8 March 2011.
    I contacted essexinfo separately but they said everything seemed to be OK at their end working from within the system.
    If you can help I would appreciate it.

  • How do you fix adons when there no update for it

    how come you cant work with java and skype to get them to work with your updates and other compenes ie hp

    Java works fine with Firefox, but the JavaConsole extension is disabled because of causing Firefox to crash. The JavaConsole extension is used primarily by Java developers, and isn't needed to run Java applets or beans.
    Skype works fine, too. The Skype extension is known problematic for may years with Firefox, but it isn't necessary to use Skype. All that extension does is to allow the user to click on a phone number in Firefox to make a call. Without that extension the user has to "dial" the call thru the Skype program.
    Hopefully now that Microsoft has bought Skype they'll fix their Firefox extension or just get rid of it.

  • How do you update software?

    My son recently purchased a used ipod touch from Gamestop.  In settings, General, there isn't anything about software updates or the current version.  How can he update this device to work with newer apps?

    yep just like niel said. if it is a 2nd gen it cant be updated to later versions of ios. 4.2.1 is the latest. but if it is a 3rd gen 32gb then you can update to ios 5. a 4th gen can update to ios 6.
    you need to connect the device to the computer and go from there.
