MSI / WMIC product strings for automatic uninstallation?

Fellow sysadmins, I'm working on a batch script to purge crapware from new OEM machines (e.g. all the little Lenovo software, Dell Data Protect, Dell Backup and Restore, toolbars, et cetera) without our intervention and totally silently.

Question about loan manager and interest/principal splits.

I work for a company that has a couple of loans, and I find the loan manager super useful. My problem comes from loans that have daily compounding.

Quickbooks 14 problems with subassemblies

Just found out that sub assemblies can break a company file. But in a very quickbooks way, the problem is a subtle one, lingering for weeks before it gets reported. Far to long for us to restore from backups and re-enter transactions. After letting quickbooks build a sub-assembly for you using a handy-dandy checkbox, a […]

Drupal Commerce and Quickbooks

So… I'm supposed to connect these two for a client. Testing of the quickbooks connect module shows it's not ready for prime-time. Every time the sync ran, it created duplicate copies of every order. I've looked extensively at and they seem totally incompetent with anything related to Drupal, their free trial module includes code […]

Barcode scanning is not working with advanced inventory.

The bar code scanning is turned on and all the products are assigned an individual bar code in the quickbooks format (QB:0123456789). I open up an invoice form and scan a bar code that was printed off in quickbooks, but all it does it put the QB:0123456789 into whatever data field was clicked on. It […]
