    Thunderbird -- can't disable auto config --FIXED !!!


    Hi there

    I'm trying to add a new email account in Thunderbird

    Somehow latest release tries to "Dumb down" the manual configuration and attempts to do it automatically.

    However the email server I'm using isn't in Thunderbird's database so it seems to stay in an infinite loop.

    WHAT'S WRONG WITH SOFTWARE DESIGNERS -- please don't Simplify apps too much -- give users choice of Auto / Manual config for these cases -- it's really not possible for Thunderbird to store every conceivable email provider in the database !!!!!!.

    Surely at least if it can't find the email server it should say OK no server found enter manually.

    If you hit Manual config it still tries the automatic lookup !!!!!!!!!

    Fix though (backdoor method) !!!

    select a VALID email provider --say your ISP or whatever for the email server bit

    Now you can CHANGE the settings to what you want (your real server , IMAP etc etc.

    What a dogs dinner of a way to do it though. !!!!!

    Cheers
    jimbo

  2. Error 0x80070bc2 when Windows 10 update trying to install KB4048955 for version 1709

    OK, I got the commands to run.

    SC config wuauserv start= auto

    SC config bits start= auto

    SC config cryptsvc start= auto

    SC config trustedinstaller start= auto

    The system installed some updates and now the troublesome KB4093112 is installed. That's great. Now can someone actually explain WHY these commands fixed the problem? I'd sure like to understand it better.

    Thanks, Mike

  3. KB4074588 keep failing to install

    Can't get this issue fixed. 0x80070bc2 error.

    2018-02 Cumulative Update for Windows 10 Version 1709 for x64-based Systems (KB4074588)

    It keeps failing, always asking to restart and installing again and again.

    Tried this, but no success.

    • Right-click on Windows key and select Command Prompt (Admin).
    • Type the following commands in Command Prompt window. To execute them, press Enter after each one.

      SC config wuauserv start= auto

      SC config bits start= auto

      SC config cryptsvc start= auto

      SC config trustedinstaller start= auto
    • Finally, restart your PC and try to install the update that was previously returning the 0x80070bc2 error.
