Consulting companies that are driven by technology

By nature, Microsoft CRM is a web-based application. However, it has both web and Microsoft Outlook clients.

By using .NET hosting companies and implementation, you can host your website and by using the web-based training, you will be able to do it remotely.

Precision programming is required due to the high complexity of tasks that are involved and the requirement to outsource it to development centers all over the country (messaging through Lotus Notes Domino, generic MAPI, advanced MS CRM – Exchange connector.) This has to be done even though Microsoft Business Solutions has open technology Microsoft CRM SDK. Nowadays, clients are looking for high expertise and they do not want generic developers who offer cheap prices.

Games For Windows Live Service

Microsoft’s Games for Windows Live online service is very popular among PC gamers. This is an online gaming service much like Xbox Live service, designed for PC gamers. This service includes Windows Live chat support for interacting with other PC gamers, multiplayer gaming options, features for keeping track of achievements, options for checking your friends’ status, and more.

However, in the past few months, there have been rumours about a possible shutdown of the Games for Windows Live service. The deadline mentioned in these rumours was July 1, 2014. Interestingly, that date has come and gone, but Games for Windows Live service is still available online.

It is said that Microsoft started the rumour mill themselves. Back in August 2013, Microsoft or rather someone at Microsoft let it slip on the Age of Empire game’s support page that with Games for Windows Live ending its service in July 1, 2014, Age of Empire’s online version will end. Microsoft was quick to realise the mistake and soon removed the posted blog.

Nevertheless, the damage was already done. The news quickly spread online that Games for Windows Live has only a few more months left to live. Consequently, many gaming experts speculated that Microsoft might be planning to streamline all their online gaming services by merging them all into Xbox Live service.

In fact, Microsoft issued an ambiguous statement saying that they did not announce such a date, and would continue supporting online PC gaming in the future. But this only left the question unanswered. Their vague statement gave an impression that they might indeed shut down Games for Windows Live in the near future.

Taking cue from all these rumours and announcements, many popular online gaming titles have already migrated from Games for Windows Live service to rival online gaming service like Valve’s Steam. Many others announced that their online gaming versions would continue as long as Games for Windows Live remained alive. Reports say that Microsoft did not do anything to stop all these announcements from their PC gaming partners.

All this indicates that Microsoft has clear plans for shutting down the service and their PC gaming partners have been informed about this. They might launch a new revamped service with latest gaming titles, advanced Windows Live chat support, high-end display, and multi-player gaming options, but we will have to wait and see what the tech giant has for the gaming community.

A Tweak To Remove Windows Live Messenger

Windows Live Chat Support

Live Messenger

For every problem that we face, technology has a solution to overcome it. So is the same with removing Windows Live Messenger. There is a wizard to uninstall Windows Live Messenger, which can remove the instant messenger along with the Windows Live chat support.

Nevertheless, it is better to get Windows Live Messenger removed manually, to get rid of it completely. One thing that you would need to know while you uninstall the program manually is being aware of how the program was installed. This is the technician’s usual approach while uninstalling a program. If you know how it is done, you can also do it by yourself. Two things that you need to know are the right files and their locations.

Since the files that you are about to delete are the ones which make the program work, when you delete them, you are also deleting the entire program along with the Windows Live chat support.

Start by going to the C: drive in My Computer folder. From here, look for the folder that says Program Files. Here you need to be aware of the files that have to be deleted; the required files would have the name Windows Live in them. In order to delete the files, highlight them and hit Shit+Del to delete the selected files completely.

The last but not the least, you would have to get into the registry and delete entries that are related to Windows Live Messenger. Windows Live messenger would not be removed completely, if they were entries remaining in the registry. The Windows Operating System will have links with the program in the form of registry entries. It is the most important part when you are manually removing the Windows Live entries from the registry.

Uninstall The Program

Live Chat Support

These links are the ones that give an identity to the program by telling the keys their name, its type of function, and the program along with its settings. When you remove these links, you are removing the control of the program out of the Configuration with the PC.

To open the Registry editor, click on the Start menu to the lower left corner of the desktop, and click on the option Run. This will open a small dialogue box, with some space to type. Type in Regedit and press Enter. This would open another window called the Registry Editor. You will be able to navigate to the location with the help of the menu on the left pane, use your arrows to move back and forth. Delete the necessary entries to uninstall the program.

Microsoft To Continue Providing Critical Security Updates For XP Embedded OS

Windows Live Technical Support

About Windows XP Embedded OS

The end of Windows Live technical support for the XP operating system has put so many Point of Sale systems and ATM machines at risk. According to the some reports, about 90% or more of all such systems are still running on the Windows XP embedded OS. With these systems no longer receiving security updates, they will soon become easy targets for hackers.

Microsoft to provide essential updates for XP Embedded OS until January 2016

One of the main concerns many of the organisations still using the XP Embedded OS have, is about the Payment Card Industry Data Security Standards (PCI DSS) compliance. All organisations using the card processing services should adhere to the PCI DSS guidelines, to ensure secure financial transactions when accepting payments from the customers. According to PCI DSS, these organisations must regularly update their POS applications to take care of any security vulnerabilities.

With Microsoft ending the Windows Live technical support for these XP Embedded operating systems, those organisations still using this OS will essentially fail to meet the PCI DSS guidelines. But, they cannot quickly make an upgrade to the latest Windows 8 Embedded operating systems, as this involves upgrading their IT infrastructure.

Failing to comply with these standards would mean that these organisations might have to pay huge fines, and might be held financially liable in the event of a security breach. All major credit card companies and banks like Visa, Master Card, American Express, etc all require the merchant organisations to adhere to these PCI DSS guidelines to ensure secure transactions.

Point Of Sale Systems

But, despite repeated warnings from Microsoft, not many of them have upgraded from Windows XP Embedded operating to the new Windows 7 or Windows 8 based ones. This puts these ATMs and credit processing POS devices at serious risk of hacking attacks and other security problems.

Microsoft, realising these concerns, have now agreed to provide critical security updates for the Windows XP Embedded operating system until January 2016. This might be enough to make these organisations PCI DSS compliant. Also, this new guideline will give them more time to make a smooth transition from Windows XP Embedded OS, to the latest Windows 8 Embedded.

These firms can also use the services of third party software developers, who specialize in providing tech security services. You can also purchase many Android or iOS based card processing POS applications online.

Windows XP User Base Still Strong After The End Of Microsoft Support

Windows Tech Support

About Windows 8 Upgrade

Did Microsoft expect to see a spike in the Windows 8 sales figures when they ended the Windows tech support for XP? According to many tech experts, the fact that Microsoft released an improved version of the Windows 8 OS, Windows 8.1 before ending tech support for XP, points exactly to that. The tech giant might have hoped that the changes they made in Windows 8.1 will make more XP users upgrade to the new OS.

Why Windows XP is still so popular?

The very-popular Windows 7 OS easily overtook Windows XP after its release. But, the XP user base soon stabilised and it has been hovering around 25% ever since. These users did not want to upgrade to Windows 7, which was the best Windows OS option available at that time, because they were hesitant to upgrade their computer hardware, which meant essentially buying a new PC.

But, apart from the system requirements, the Windows 7 was essentially an improved and upgraded version of the XP OS. It had the same desktop user interface and Start Menu. So, it was clearly the cost concerns that stopped many of these XP users from upgrading to Windows 7.

This situation has not changed. If the Windows XP users have to upgrade to Windows 8, they still have to buy a new system. Also, the majority of these Windows XP users are actually corporate houses and organisations, who use thousands of XP computers for running their business operations. Upgrading all these systems is going to take a lot of investment. But, the end of Windows tech support has indeed forced many of these corporate users to consider making the upgrade to Windows 8.

Microsoft working on reducing the hardware requirements of Windows 8.1

Windows 8.1 With Bing

Contact Windows Support

Perhaps, this is why Microsoft is working on a loss cost version of the Windows 8.1 OS. Clearly, the strong 25% market share Windows XP still enjoys even after the end of Windows tech support points to a very cost-conscious Windows user base, who keep putting off the hardware upgrade to a later date. But, if Microsoft can come up with a Windows 8.1 version that is low on hardware requirements, many of these users might consider making such an upgrade.

Microsoft is still working on this OS, currently titled ‘Windows 8.1 with Bing’. They have not announced any release date so far. This just might be the Windows OS that the XP users have been waiting for.
