How to Fix Nextgen EMR Client in Windows 7 64 Bit

Nextgen EMR doesn’t natively run on Windows 7 64-bit. This is because the Nextgen EMR client references a 32 bit ODBC application that is hidden away in Windows. That means going to Control Panel > Administrative Tools > ODBC won’t work (that’s the 64 bit ODBC version). If, however, you tweak your ODBC 32 Bit settings, Nextgen will work.

[FIXED] Could Not Connect to the Server Because the Name or Password is Not Correct

Trying to see a SMB network folder from a Mac to a PC? Are you getting the error “could not connect to the server because the name or password is not correct“? Are you running OS X 10.4? Here’s the solution…

1) Delete the Keychain for the login on the Mac.
2) Then, go to the Windows PC and Enable NetBIOS.

Open the Network Connections folder.
Right click the local area network connection and click Properties.
Double click Internet Protocol (TCP/IP).
Click Advanced.
Click WINS.
Click the Enable NetBIOS Over TCP/IP button.

3) Go back to the Mac and try logging in again. You should now get the username/password prompt when your Mac tries to reconnect to the PC’s SMB share.

Office365 Isn’t Compatible With Office 2003 – The TLS Security Loophole

I’ll make this short and sweet. Office365 does not work with Office 2003. It never will. It can’t be hacked. It can’t be fixed. This is because Office365 requires that SMTP traffic travel with TLS security. Guess what? Office 2003 doesn’t support TLS and there aren’t any hotfixes for it either. So, if you’re receiving the following error:

“Task ‘pod51019.outlook.com – Sending ‘reported error (0x800ccc78) “Unable to send the message. Please verify the e-mail address in your account properties. The server responded: 530 5.7.1 Client was not authenticated.”

outlook 2003 office365 530 5.7.1 error

Just give up. You must upgrade to Office 2007 or Office 2010 to work with Office365. Welcome to the future of old software.

If you don’t believe me, here’s the quote straight from Microsoft:

Hello Netbuddy,

Learning from the engineer in our product team, Outlook 2003 was designed and built for an environment where servers are maintained locally within an organization and not part of a cloud service. Outlook 2003 does not support features and functionality that depend on the re-architected identity infrastructure and newer server architecture available in Office 365. Given these changes, Outlook 2003 cannot provide an acceptable end-user experience when connected to Office 365.

To work well with Office 365 (Exchange Online), please update the Outlook client to Outlook 2007 Sp2 or Outlook 2010 first and connect to Exchange Online again. For more information about system requirement for Office 365, please refer to article below.

Thank you.

LogParser Query for Exchange – Find Inbound & Outbound Emails for a Specific User

Scenario: You’re managing an Exchange server and your Director just asked you the following:

“I want a full list of all the emails John has sent outside the company. I also want to see a list of incoming emails from outside the company.”

You nod and carry on. A few days later, you realize they actually want the report. Here’s the query to run in LogParser:

In this example, I’m assuming the following:

  • The user is called John Doe (jdoe@abcwidgets.com) and he works at ABCWidgets.com.
  • You’re running the Command Line query from the same directory that LogParser is located in.
  • Your Exchange Files are located in C:Program FilesExchsrvrLogs.
  • You need a CSV File for easy opening and formatting in Excel.
  • You want to parse and plunder the entire Log folder in Exchange in one shot.
  • You want to save the CSV file to the same directory as LogParser.

Here are the queries. Replace variables as needed.

LogParser Query for All Inbound Emails (Not Received From ABCWidgets.com)


"LogParser.exe" -i:W3C -o:CSV "select TO_Timestamp(REPLACE_STR(STRCAT(STRCAT(date,' '), time),' GMT',''),'yyyy-M-d h:m:s') as DateTime, Recipient-Address AS RcptAddress, Number-Recipients AS NumRcpts, Message-Subject AS Subject, Sender-Address AS Sender from 'C:Program FilesExchsrvrLogs*.log' to jdoe-inbound-external.csv WHERE Recipient-Address LIKE '%jdoe@%' GROUP BY DateTime, Recipient-Address, Number-Recipients, Message-Subject, Sender-Address HAVING Sender-Address NOT LIKE '%abcwidgets%'" -filemode:0

LogParser Query for All Outbound Emails (Not Sent To ABCWidgets.com)


"LogParser.exe" -i:W3C -o:CSV "select TO_Timestamp(REPLACE_STR(STRCAT(STRCAT(date,' '), time),' GMT',''),'yyyy-M-d h:m:s') as DateTime, Recipient-Address AS RcptAddress, Number-Recipients AS NumRcpts, Message-Subject AS Subject, Sender-Address AS Sender from 'C:Program FilesExchsrvrLogs*.log' to jdoe-outbound-external.csv WHERE Sender-Address LIKE '%jdoe@%' GROUP BY DateTime, Recipient-Address, Number-Recipients, Message-Subject, Sender-Address HAVING Recipient-Address NOT LIKE '%abcwidgets%'" -filemode:0

You turn the report in and your Director says, “You know what, you haven’t plundered enough, today. I want to see all his incoming and outgoing emails within the company only, too.”
With a smack to your forehead, you trod off back to your dusty server room. Here’s the queries:

LogParser Query for All Inbound Emails (Received From ABCWidgets.com Employees)


"LogParser.exe" -i:W3C -o:CSV "select TO_Timestamp(REPLACE_STR(STRCAT(STRCAT(date,' '), time),' GMT',''),'yyyy-M-d h:m:s') as DateTime, Recipient-Address AS RcptAddress, Number-Recipients AS NumRcpts, Message-Subject AS Subject, Sender-Address AS Sender from 'C:Program FilesExchsrvrLogs*.log' to jdoe-inbound-internal.csv WHERE Recipient-Address LIKE '%jdoe@%' GROUP BY DateTime, Recipient-Address, Number-Recipients, Message-Subject, Sender-Address HAVING Sender-Address LIKE '%abcwidgets%'" -filemode:0

LogParser Query for All Outbound Emails (Sent To ABCWidgets.com Employees)


"LogParser.exe" -i:W3C -o:CSV "select TO_Timestamp(REPLACE_STR(STRCAT(STRCAT(date,' '), time),' GMT',''),'yyyy-M-d h:m:s') as DateTime, Recipient-Address AS RcptAddress, Number-Recipients AS NumRcpts, Message-Subject AS Subject, Sender-Address AS Sender from 'C:Program FilesExchsrvrLogs*.log' to jdoe-outbound-internal.csv WHERE Sender-Address LIKE '%jdoe@%' GROUP BY DateTime, Recipient-Address, Number-Recipients, Message-Subject, Sender-Address HAVING Recipient-Address LIKE '%abcwidgets%'" -filemode:0

Mission accomplished.

LastPass Does Not Work With Windows Dialog Boxes or Windows Authentication

For those of you that think LastPass is the end-all, be-all of password managers, it isn’t. It does not work with simple Windows Authentication or Windows Dialog boxes. Roboform does and always has worked with them. So, if you’re a Windows power user, watch out with LastPass. Roboform is your go-to solution.
