microsoft office – Windows Store Apps on fslogix

I can’t find any Documentation about this…

We run fslogix and there is a Problem that whenever we download a Store app (ToDo) it disappears as soon as you Restart the Workstation.

Is there a way to fix this problem?

I have discovered that there is an redirections.xml but I can’t find this on the machine.

Sharepoint 2016 crashes after MS Office 2016 64bit installation


Have been stumbled upon a very unusual issue – after MS Office installation all web applications (bad practice, i know), including central admin, return a 503 error. Reason is application pools in stopped condition. Any attempt to start up application pool fails.

There are no errors in Sharepoint Logs – only in event viewer. This and this

Faulting application name: w3wp.exe, version: 10.0.14393.0, time stamp: 0x57899b8a

and this

The Module name SharePoint14Module path C:Program FilesCommon FilesMicrosoft SharedWeb Server
Extensions16isapiowssvr.dll returned an error from registration. The data is the error.

I looked up a little bit – Enable 32-bit application is set to false, manipulations with ApplicationHost.config doesn’t bring anything.

Does anyone have any idea what is source of this troubles?

Thanks in advance!

Office Mobile not installed yet opening PDF files

I have a Samsung A50 phone, stock Android which came with the device (from Comcast), everything up to date and not rooted. I have not registered for the Samsung Galaxy store or whatever is called, and therefore never installed anything from it.

I never installed Office Mobile on my phone, and looking at the list of installed apps in Google Play shows no Office Mobile.

Yet, starting today, attempting to open some (but not all!) PDF files (by tapping their name in the Document folder) opens them in Office Mobile rather than the “Google Drive PDF viewer” where they did open till the day before yesterday (I did not try yesterday).

There is not an option to force opening the files in “Google Drive PDF viewer”. For a test, I installed the “Google PDF Viewer” (I wish they chose less similar and less confusing names). After that Android allows me to open the files with “Google PDF Viewer”, but it fails with “Cannot display PDF (no file received)”. After a reboot, the files were gone.

What may have happened? I can guess that the files corrupted and the “Google Drive PDF viewer” magically knew (and therefore was not proposing itself to open them), whereas the other two apps did.

Yet, why is there an app which I never installed and does not show up in the list of installed apps? Heck, if I search for it in Google Play, I even find it, and it shows me the option to install it!

Should I activate Windows 10 and/or Office for a sandbox system?

I’m building a Windows 10 malware analysis sandbox. I’m debating activating Windows or not: I can think of arguments for both:

  • For activation: Malware might check the Windows activation status
  • Against activation: If I connect this system to a dedicated internet connection, I’ll need to disable the Windows Update services, which could also be a tell for malware

What approach do you recommend?

Can I have multiple "farms" under a single tenant on SharePoint Online / Office 365?

Migrating to Office 365 soon and wanted to know if I could have multiple SharePoint ‘Farms’ under one Tenant? We have 3 business units we want to keep separated, but allow smooth User experience if a User needs to hop around to different ‘farms’.

sharepoint online – CSOM Utility.SendEmail() will only send email to office 365 email addressees… is it a limitation?

I have the following code inside my CSOM console application to send email:-

static private void sendemail(ClientContext context, string subject, string body, string email)
            var emailp = new EmailProperties();
            emailp.Subject = subject;
            emailp.Body = body;
            List<string> toUsers = new List<string>();
            emailp.To = toUsers;

            Utility.SendEmail(context, emailp);

now the email will be sent correctly incase the to email is defined inside office 365,otherwise no email will be sent. any idea why?

Microsoft Office SharePoint Virus Scan Engine

We have a requirement to integrate an antivirus solution with the Sharepoint server programmatically.

When a user adds/updates a document perform a scan using SDK of the antivirus and based on the result allow/block the document. So we are expecting to receive a callback when a user uploads/downloads any documents. This does not apply to the Sharepoint online. We have to achieve this programmatically(C# is the preferred language).

We are struggling to find enough documentation regarding the same.

The documentation we can find so far is mentioned below but it doesn’t seem to have enough information to get started and also we are not sure if it is still relevant,

We would like to know possible approaches/documentation related to this.

Connecting from Azure Automation to Office 365 PowerShell Endpoint fails half way through script

I have a script running under an Azure Automation account. The script connects to the Office 365 endpoint (, and uses Set-Contact to update some contact information for 5000 contacts (I inherited this so please don’t ask :)). The script is running for just over 57 minutes.

The issues I am now starting to get is that 2000 contacts are being updated, then I get the following errors in the logs:

Starting a command on the remote server failed with the following error message : The I/O operation has been aborted because of either a thread exit or an application request. For more information, see the about_Remote_Troubleshooting Help topic.

I get this once, then I get:

Exception calling "GetSteppablePipeline" with "1" argument(s): "Exception calling "PromptForCredential" with "4" argument(s): "A command that prompts the user failed because the host program or the command type does not support user interaction. The host was attempting to request confirmation with the following message: Enter your credentials for""

The commands being used to connect are (nothign complicated):

$a = New-PSSession -ConfigurationName Microsoft.Exchange -ConnectionUri '' -Credential $Credential -Authentication Basic -AllowRedirection -Erroraction Stop
Import-PSSession -Session $s -CommandName New-MailContact, Set-Contact, Remove-MailContact -AllowClobber | Out-Null

What it looks like is the remote session is re-requesting login. If that is the case I’m wondering under what circumstances it would do that (for example does the session have a set time and then asks for authentication).

Can anybody shed any light on why this is occurring and what I can do to resolve it?

Office 365 developer – Assign a member to the group via the Powershell Graph API API launches Request_BadRequest

Call the following code:

$uri = "`$ref"
$body = (@{''=''} | ConvertTo-JSON)
Invoke-WebRequest -Method "POST" -Uri $uri -ContentType "application/json" -Headers @{Authorization = "Bearer $retrievedToken"} -Body $body -UseBasicParsing -Verbose


Invoke-WebRequest : { "error": { "code": "Request_BadRequest", "message": "No URI value was found for
an entity reference link. A single URI value was expected."

Note: The same request in Graph Explorer works as expected.
