I tested and created my Windows 7 image with all my software and customization installed.  Use MDT 2012 to deploy to workstations in a multi-user environment.  Only to find out, that every new user on every machine must open Acrobat before clicking to open a PDF file from the net, email, network drive or anywhere else!

So I went searching and found this great post about something similar, but having to do with a “CR” in the filename or path (which was not our case).  But none-the-less the solution worked!

Simply adding a key to your registry got rid of the error.

Reg file for x32: EULAAcceptedForBrowser_32bit

Reg file for x64:EULAAcceptedForBrowser_64bit

Have you tried to upgrade from Filezilla Client 2 to the new Filezilla Client 3? Where did my settings go?

Filezilla 3 has a new way of storing your settings. Here is a great website to convert your settings from 2 to 3:

I took me a while to find this answer, so I thought I’d post it.  Just in case.

I was having trouble with it, because when I went into the card (Ctrl-A) there was no option to rebuild. 
Hopefully the Raid failure has not left your OS FUBAR, because you need to run their software. 
It can be found here.

You will need to register your board before downloading.  So you’ll need the serial # off it.

You can rebuild the array from within the software.
