Is anyone familiar with Microsoft Remote Desktop? I'm referring to the application with the name MSTSC.EXE. I used this years ago at the office to remote into the servers from home but MS has made changes since then. I have one laptop downstairs that is usually unattended and I have been using TeamViewer to remote in but that requires a TeamViewer account, and all traffic is routed through the TeamViewer servers. I would prefer a direct connection, and one that doesn't leave pop-ups scattered about. I just want to remote in, do my stuff, then get out. Unfortunately, the current …

I still can work on my laptop (HP Pavilion) because I had a window open and I can access all my docs this way, but the background screen is black, there is no 'Start' button, no desktop and the 'right click' does nothing. Totally emptiness, but I still see the pointer on the black screen. If this open window is closed, I won't be able to open anything or work on the computer. Anyone there with a solution?

My son is looking to buy a new gaming system. For reasons I have detailed elsewhere on Daniweb, there is no way in hell we will consider a Dell system. They were great once. They aren't anymore. And their service sucks big time. We would prefer a prebuilt system because 1. it (theoretically) should have been designed so that all the components work well together. 1. it will come with all the required drivers (customized as needed) 1. all the pieces will be under one warranty at one place It will have to be a Windows system because I only …

My number two son is looking to replace his old(ish) Alienware laptop with a new gaming desktop. He is leaning toward another Alienware (although desktop this time rather than notebook). Does anyone have any recommendations that aren't in the super-ultimate-deluxe-megabucks category? His reason for going to a desktop system is for the ability to replace components as they become obsolete (primarily video cards). Some newer games will not run on the older video hardware on the noteboook.

Hello everyone! As some of you may know, Eclipse Luna appears to be broken for users of Kali Linux. There is a simple fix for that > Assuming that you have installed Eclipse Luna locate eclipse.ini `sudo nano eclipse.ini` add the following 2 lines before `--launcher.appendVmargs` --launcher.GTK_version 2 press `ctrl + x` then press `y` and finally press `Enter` That should fix it and you should be able to run eclipse. Now, next thing to do is we want to include Eclipse in Applications Menu for easier access or for dock users(like me on xfce) we can dock Eclipse. `sudo …

Recently I've stumbled on a nice tool that I really quite like, so I thought I'd share it: Personally, I love the power behind PHP. I find it a very simple to use yet possesses the techniques seen in the more complex desktop applications such as Perl/Python/C/C++/C# etc. PHP has always been restricted to server-side web applications, and unlike the others, cannot run as a desktop application – until now. I would like to share an awesome tool I’ve been using recently… [PHP Nightrain](http://www.naetech.com/php-nightrain) is a cool bit of kit: it fully supports popular frameworks such as Laravel and CakePHP, …

Hi, i have the requirement of converting a php-mysql app into a standalone app. The main purpose is to hide the source code from the client, and to run the app in his system without a web browser. I wonder if there is any tool for this, so that i can convert the existing php-mysql app into a desktop app. I know there is PHP GTK, but using it, i have to build my app from scratch. I also heard about the tools Roadsend and Bambalam, and also PHPDock. But iam not sure about them. FYI, iam using php5, mysql, …

The company I am working for is trying to rebuild a simple program that views and/or modifies tables using sql. We want this to be a web app. We already have a working desktop app built in Visual Basic 6. Now we are copying the code over to Xojo. The head of the project, the person who originally built the VB6 program, wants to rebuild the desktop app in xojo. After building the desktop app, we would then convert it to a web app in xojo. A new person coming into the project says that this will be wasteful and …

I am planning a service that I would like to eventually grow into a multi-platform service, however, my original plan of creating a hybrid app may not be the best decision. Is it better to come up with one app design and recreate it on each platform, or design a unique user experience for each platform, making use of the platforms features and design standards? In particular I can see my hybrid app design failing miserably on windows 8 phones. What would result in the best user experience? Answers appreicated!

Sorry if this is the wrong place or something, but I saw a question in here on PHP vs ASP.NET, which made me think it might be. On the other hand, I also saw posts asking about people's breakfast, so I don't really know... Users are already starting to embrace web applications such as Google Docs over their desktop counterparts. From a coding perspective, it seems like many languages are shifting gears to be more web-oriented. For instance, Java has embraced JavaFx, which seems more of a web-app library than swing was/is. Even more, it uses CSS for styling. There …

I hear that RUby can be used for desktop development, yet I haven't seen any showcases. I am currently learning C++ but have always had my eyes on Ruby. Is it true? I know Ruby On Rails is for web development. What are the capabilities of ROR? Thanks in advance.

I'm planning on building a new desktop probably in about a couple of months or so.

Hi, I know C, C++, and Java (all basic knowledge, no GUI idea in C++ or C) and now I want to make a *desktop application with GUI in C++* but no idea about how to make it, google didn't help me a lot! Can someone please give me the guidelines to start writing desktop apps with C++? I am also interested in *C#*, never learned it but sounds interesting to me. If C# is better than C++ for desktop application then please tell me so. Thanks.

Very recently, I let my laptop (HP) battery get too low, and it died on me. Usually, upon plugging in the adaptor, everything starts right back up again. However, this time, the laptop runs, but all I can see is a black screen. I can even hear the little chime when windows starts (vista), but all I can see is black. I don't think it's a backlight issue, as I the black screen still emits a sort of "glow". I know I need a new battery, but as long as it's plugged into the power supply, shouldn't it work fine? …

Hi, I have laptop running Ubuntu 12.04 and I'm looking at a [mini mac](http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mac_Mini). I would like to operate it remotely (it has no screen/keyboard/mouse of its own) but not through the internet. Could I connect the two locally through an ethernet cable and then control the mac from the laptop using some desktop sharing system like, say, [VNC](http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Virtual_Network_Computing)? If anyone out there has any advice for doing this I would appreciate the help! Cheers

I need to add an option to stop/pause the backup if the computer was connected to a 3G network to save cost for the user. I cannot seem to be able to find any example on how this can be achieved, there are some examples for Windows Phone and Windows Store Apps but I cannot find anything that can check if the connection type is a WiFi/Ethernet or 3G the latter is my main concern.
