Altaro is offering 50 Free PC Backup Licenses for ALL Hyper-V admins to use or give away to friends/family. You only have to send a screenshot of your Hyper-V manager together with your name and E-mail.

I have no experience with Altaro Home PC Backup, but since it is free, why not take advantage of ths offer and test it.

Windows 8 – Windows store app installation fails on Windows 8 with error code 0x80070057

Last week I encountered error code 0x80070057 while trying to install an update to the “Fruit Ninja” windows store app.

The steps below were used to fix this error:

  1. Run powershell as administrator
  2. get-appxpackage -name *fruitninja* | remove-appxpackage
  3. Run “wsreset”
  4. Go to store page and click install

Thanks to this post that helped me resolve the issue:

PS: I had already tried syncing the app licenses, but this didn’t resolve the issue.

Office 2013 including Exchange, Lync and Sharepoint has been released to manufacturing (RTM)

As I’ve mentioned in previous blog posts, Microsoft is working hard to get new and better versions of their software released as soon as possible.

Last week Microsoft announced that the Office 2013 suite reached released to manufacturing (RTM) including:

  • Office 2013 for workstations (Outlook, Word, Excel, Powerpoint, Access, OneNote, Project, Visio)
  • Server software (Exchange 2013, Sharepoint 2013, Project 2013, Lync 2013, Visio 2013)
  • Cloud versions of the above mentioned software (Office 365).

The availability is dependent on the platform and your licensing type. More information about this can be found here:

I have to admit I didn’t expect them to reach RTM status already. I also hope that beta exams won’t be released anytime soon, because then I won’t have enough time to properly prepare 😦
