Failed , nay! :(

 

PS: I've manually disabled any protections(firewall, etc) and enabled all sharing/remote access options I could find on each target but stil no luck.

 

 

Will someone point out where I'm wrong please? /:

Doesn't the remote registry service need to be enabled, or am I on the wrong track...

What do you think psexec is? All it's doing is using powerhsell on the target machine to execute a command.

"All it's doing is using powerhsell on the target machine to execute a command."

 

Where did you get that? That is not the case at all

 

http://windowsitpro.com/systems-management/psexec

 

ps in psexec does not stand for powershell ;)  It gots its name from the ps command in unix.  Read the above article for some history and insight on the command.

 

powershell came out in what 2006, that article on psexec was written in 2004 well before powershell was even avaiable as an oddon.

      Microsoft's App Assure program expands to support Windows 365
      by Usama Jawad

      Yesterday, Microsoft announced the general availability of Windows 365 and revealed price tiers starting from $20, going all the way up to $162 for varying configurations. With this new service, Windows is hosted on Microsoft Cloud and customers can securely stream the full Windows experience, including their apps, data, and settings, to personal and corporate devices. For organizations looking to transition infrastructure to Windows 365, Microsoft has announced an expansion of its App Assure program to support its latest offering.

      For those unaware, Microsoft's App Assure was launched in 2018 is designed to ensure that your business won't have any app compatibility issues. If you do encounter them, Microsoft actually works with your organization to fix the issues. Since its inception, Microsoft has added support for various flavors including Windows 10 on ARM as well as Windows 11.

      With the general availability of Windows 365, Microsoft is extending the same promises to its users once again. If a business encounters issues related to app compatibility on Windows 365, it can get in touch with Microsoft to identify the root cause, receive guidance for remediation, and work with the company to fix potential bugs in its products. In some cases, the Redmond tech giant may even reach out to the third-party provider of a certain incompatible app on your behalf and work with them to resolve the issue. This will all be done at no extra cost provided that you are eligible for Microsoft's FastTrack program.

      While Microsoft says that apps that work on Windows 7, 8.1, and 10 will ideally continue to function on Windows 365, unforeseen issues can arise sometimes and that is where businesses with App Assure will benefit. Since its launch in 2018, the App Assure program has evaluated 809,729 apps, identified 3,116 broken apps, and unblocked 89.5 million devices. This has resulted in estimated cost savings of $7.54 billion and prevented 43.6 million help desk escalations.

      Microsoft announces the general availability of Windows 365
      by Paul Hill

      Microsoft has announced that Windows 365 is now available to business and enterprise customers. The service was announced in July following a year of rumours at its Inspire conference. Currently, Windows 365 offers customers a new way to experience Windows 10 but it will soon offer Windows 11 when it becomes available later in the year.

      With this new service, Windows is hosted on Microsoft Cloud and customers can securely stream the full Windows experience, including their apps, data, and settings, to personal and corporate devices. With faster and more ubiquitous internet connections, hosting an operating system in the cloud and streaming it is finally feasible.

      Microsoft offers three Windows 365 subscription tiers with slight differences between the Business and Enterprise products. The three tiers are Basic, Standard, and Premium and cost $31.00, $41.00. and $66.00 per user per month respectively. The two main differences between the Business and Enterprise versions are that Business subscriptions are restricted to 300 users while Enterprise subscribers can have unlimited users. The second difference is that Business customers can access Windows 365 through windows365.microsoft.com while Enterprise customers will have it integrated with Microsoft Endpoint Manager.

      On the Basic tier, you’ll get 2 vCPUs, 4 GB RAM, and 128 GB storage; this tier is suitable for light productivity tools and web browsers. The Standard tier gives you 2 vCPUs, 8 GB RAM, and 128 GB storage; Microsoft says this tier is suitable for running a full range of productivity tools and line-of-business apps. Finally, the Premium tier gives you 4 vCPUs, 16 GB RAM, and 128GB storage; this tier is ideal for running high-performance workloads and heavier data processing.

      If you’re not content with the defaults for these tiers and want to customise your subscription, Microsoft also offers a full list of tiers with prices ranging from $20.00 per user per month to $162.00 per user per month.

      AdDuplex: Windows 10 version 21H1 is now on over 26% of PCs, Windows 11 makes its debut
      by Abhay Venkatesh

      After a gap of a couple of months, AdDuplex has released its Windows version usage report for the month of July. The report is collected from 5,000 Microsoft Store apps that are running the AdDuplex SDK v.2 or higher, and around 60,000 Windows PCs were sampled for this report. This month’s highlight is the debut of Windows 11, which was formally announced in June. As for Windows 10, version 21H1 that was released in May is now running on over 26% of Windows machines.

      Just like the October 2020 Update, the Windows 10 May 2021 Update was an enablement package that light up new features in the OS. The underlying codebase for 21H1, however, is identical to versions 20H2 and 2004, meaning that the three most recent versions are serviced with the same cumulative updates. It is, therefore, not surprising to see that the rollout of the latest version has been faster than the previous versions has seen. This is only expected to increase as version 2004 begins to reach the end of support for consumer SKUs.

      With Windows 10 21H1 now on more than 26% of PCs, the three latest versions of the OS account for close to 88% of usage share. The title for the most famous version of Windows 10 is retained by version 20H2 at 36.3%, followed by version 2004 at 24.6%. Windows Insiders running Windows 11 in the Dev channel account for close to 1% of total devices.

      Windows 10 version 21H2 is also slated to be an enablement package. However, with Windows 11 expected to begin rolling out later this year, it will be interesting to see how the usage share changes, since there are still questions about the pace of the rollout and what the final hardware specifications will be.

      Hands-on with the new Microsoft Teams experience for Windows 11
      by Anmol Mehrotra



      Earlier this week, Microsoft released another Windows 11 build to Windows Insiders in the Dev Preview ring. The new build brought improvements to the UI as well as the new Microsoft Teams integration. Microsoft announced the Teams integration at the Windows 11 launch event last month. With the feature now rolling out to Windows Insiders, we decided to take a closer look at the new Teams integration for Windows 11.

      First time setup
      After you install the new Windows 11 build, you will see a Teams icon on the taskbar. Clicking on the option will open Team for the first-time setup. The setup is pretty simple.

      Microsoft allows you to use your regular MSA account for personal use. You can also use your work or school account if you have one and want it easily accessible.

      Once you select the account, Microsoft will ask you to verify ownership (if you have two-factor authentication) as well as add a phone number. This will add as a secondary username and also allow others to find you on Teams.

      Lastly, Microsoft will confirm the settings and ask you if you want to use your existing Outlook or Skype contact list to find people on Microsoft Teams. One thing to note here is that if you have used Windows Phone in the past or you use Outlook to sync your contacts then you will see your address book on Teams (provided you selected the sync Outlook contact list on the last step).

      Using the app
      The experience is same more or less. However, with a personal Teams account, users can now use it as way to stay connected to their loved ones. Moreover, you can now enter an email address to send a Teams message to them.

      This works in two parts: if the person already uses Teams, they will get a general chat notification. However, if the person you are messaging does not use Teams, they will get an email inviting them to join Teams and continue the chat.

      One thing that I personally believe can enhance the Teams experience is the support for SMS. While you can message people using phone numbers, they have to be in your contacts. Unfortunately, you can’t directly start a conversation with someone if they are not in your contacts. This is something that Microsoft can add in the future to allow users to start conversations by just entering the phone number of the person they want to talk to and if the person is not on Teams, they will get an invite to join the app.

      However, there is one way to invite others to a text chain and that is via the 'invite using link' option. As the name suggests, the option generates a custom link that can be shared with others to allow them to join a conversation.

      Lastly, Microsoft is also expected to merge the Meet Now feature into Teams in the feature. It will further enhance the user experience by allowing users to make audio and video calls using Microsoft Teams. Currently, the feature exists just as a placeholder button, but the company is expected to add it before Windows 11 is shipped as an update to existing Windows users.

      Do you plan to use Microsoft Teams on Windows 11? Let us know your thoughts below.

      For more information on Windows 11, you can check out our article on minimum system requirements as well as the list of CPUs that support Windows 11. Apart from the general requirements, Microsoft has also listed out specific feature requirements for Windows 11 including webcams, Bluetooth and Precision Touchpad on all upcoming laptops. Last month, Microsoft also updated the PC Health Check app to show why a device is not ineligible to receive the Windows 11 update. However, the company will allow some manufacturers to bypass the TPM 2.0 requirement and it is also allowing Windows Insiders with unsupported hardware to test Windows 11 Insider Builds. Several manufacturers have published a list of hardware that will be compatible with Windows 11.

      If you are still out of the loop, then you can check out hands-on video. If you want to get in-depth information about Windows 11 then you can check out our article covering all the new features and changes.

      How to fix Windows Hello not working in the latest Windows 11 build 22000.100
      by Anmol Mehrotra



      Yesterday, Microsoft released another Windows 11 build to Windows Insiders in the Dev Preview ring. The new build brought improvements to the UI as well as the new Microsoft Teams integration. However, it also came with a bunch of known issues, one of which was the broken Windows Hello.

      Fortunately, there is an easy fix for "Something went wrong" error when trying to use Windows Hello on Windows 11. If you are facing the issue, then you can follow the steps below to get the issue fixed:

      Click on Windows Search or the Windows button Type "Device Manager" and click on 'open'. You can also right-click on the Windows button and select Device Manager. Once Device Manager is opened, double-click on "Biometric devices" Now right-click on "Windows Hello Face Software Device" and click on 'uninstall device' Once done, reboot the system, let Windows download and install the latest drivers After the installation is finished, Windows Hello should be good to go. We hope Microsoft fixes this issue in the future build. While not critical, the issue certainly can be a pain for users who rely on Windows Hello to sign-in to their devices.

      For more information on Windows 11, you can check out our article on minimum system requirements as well as the list of CPUs that support Windows 11. Apart from the general requirements, Microsoft has also listed out specific feature requirements for Windows 11 including webcams, Bluetooth and Precision Touchpad on all upcoming laptops.
