Internet Explorer Bug MS14-021

Players, I thought this was old news now, but I have noticed (and also been asked about) the security bug in IE might still be unknown to some.

I went back to a test machine and started checking all IE security settings and noticed that the IE Enable Protected Mode for the security zone (in my case intranet)…

Path to Windows 7 – Part III. Application Compatibility

One of the main reasons why companies are delaying their migration from Windows XP to Windows 7 is the lack of compatibility with business critical applications, and sometime it can be a show stopper. There are a few tools and application delivery mechanism that can solve those issues. Now that we have a complete inventory and rationalized our applications with MAP and Centrix WorkSpace iQ, we are left with a list of application that will be delivered to the Windows 7 users. The next step is to assess the compatibility of those applications on Windows 7 and on the platform that will deliver the application. There are a few different options here. The first decision to make is “32 or 64 bit” version of Windows 7, this decision will imply changes on the application compatibility results. The recommended platform is 64 bit, and it is recommended to companies without a complex…
