  1. A file with the .msix extension is a Windows application installer. Microsoft recently introduced MSIX as an alternative to EXE, MSI, and even AppX packages. Exercise caution and ensure you trust an MSIX file’s source before running it. Windows Has Too Many Different Types of Installers Currently, Windows has three common installer formats—MSI, EXE, and AppX. Each has different strengths and weaknesses. MSI installers are best for simple, possibly unattended, installations. They use a basic install graphical user interface (GUI) that installs or uninstalls the program with no extras or options. At the very core, this installer is a compressed set of installer files containing all necessary data for the software. The install process won’t detect if the software already exists, or if any components are missing. It may overwrite any files in the install path. This simplicity means a silent, all-defaults install is a breeze for administrators to accomplish. EXE installers are more versatile than MSI installers, but with the added capability comes complication. This installer can include options for languages, add-ons, detecting previous installations, and more. EXE installers allow for custom install paths and choosing which components to install. Developers can add their own branding to the GUI and incorporate language-specific terms of service or point to a webpage for a welcome message. But this, in turn, makes a silent unattended install much more difficult, and thus less useful in an enterprise situation. AppX installers are used for Universal Windows Apps and share some of the benefits of MSI installers. They are simple, straight forward installers with few choices given to the end user. Additionally, they allow for an easier upgrade path from older versions of software to newer versions, and they allow for a cleaner uninstall. AppX installers also rely on container technology, so they are isolated from the rest of the operating system for security. Unfortunately, a program written for an MSI or EXE installer had to be rewritten or converted, perhaps with the help of tools, for the AppX package. And AppX packages can only be used with Windows 10, so older versions of Windows are out of luck. MSIX Combines the Best Features of MSI and AppX An MSIX file has the benefits of AppX while being similar to an MSI file. It is a straight forward installer that system administrators can even script for automatic, “unattended” installation. Additionally, it relies on container technology, which allows for smooth uninstalls and upgrades. From a user perspective, an MSIX installs like an MSI file, but behind the scenes, it installs like an AppX file. Additionally, MSIX distribution outside the Microsoft Store is possible. And with this new process, it’s easier to bring older programs in and repackage them for MSIX. MSIX Will Even Work on Windows 7, Linux, and More! Perhaps the most exciting feature of MSIX is that Microsoft released an SDK to enhance cross-platform compatibility. As seen on their GitHub page, support is possible for iOS, MacOS, Android, Linux, and even older versions of Windows. Developers place special instructions in the MSIX files to allow it to identify the OS and what steps to take. Programs Will Uninstall More Cleanly When you install a program using an MSI and EXE, that program can make registry changes and create files and folders throughout your system. When you uninstall the program, these files and registry keys often get left behind, leaving clutter on your system. With MSIX, programs are installed in a container and all their necessary files either stay within that container or follow precise, predictable rules about where those files may live (such as living in the AppData folder). When you uninstall, all the data goes with the program—no clutter left behind. That means your system will be cleaner going forward. It’s Still an Installer, So Be Careful! If you are looking at an MSIX file and wondering is it safe, the first question you should ask is where you obtained the installer. Like any other program installer, if you don’t trust the source, you shouldn’t open it. Even before you download the file, you should take steps to ensure it is safe. Ultimately this is an installer, which means it can potentially install a fantastic program, a junk program, or something worse. When Will I Start Seeing MSIX Files? It might be a while before you see an MSIX file. Microsoft is still fine-tuning some of the promised capabilities and, until recently, only Insider builds of Windows 10 could create an MSIX package. Even after fine tuning, developers and the installer technology providers they rely on will need to embrace, learn, and deploy the new package. That’s if they choose to at all; developers are free to continue creating EXE and MSI installers if they prefer. Adoption of a new format comes with risk and cost, so developers must weigh that against the benefits. Source: How-To Geek

    MSI Afterburner 4.5.0

    MSI Afterburner 4.5.0 Stable/Final Version 4.5.0 Minimum, average, maximum, 1% low and 0.1% low framerates are now displayed in On-Screen Display with special text formatting tags introduced by new RivaTuner Statistics Server. The tags are allowing On-Screen Display clients to display independent benchmark statistics simultaneously for multiple running 3D applications instead of displaying foreground 3D application statistics only Improved default MSI Cyborg White skin. Monochrome on / off states of fan speed auto button were hardly identifiable before, they are more contrast now Added power user oriented restore points system. Experienced users may use new /backup and /restore command line switches to create multiple named restore points containing full backups of MSI Afterburner’s settings (including hardware profiles and custom hardware monitoring plugin configurations) and restore settings from any previously created restore point if necessary Improved hardware monitoring module: Improved built-in performance profiler. Now you may enable “Show profiler panel” option is the context menu of hardware monitoring window to see an additional panel with detailed per-sensor polling statistics in hardware monitoring window status area. Polling statistics visualizes information about the slowest polled sensors with maximum polling time, so power users can easily identify problematic sensors eating most of CPU time on each polling period (e.g. abnormally slow GPU power sensor in some versions of NVIDIA drivers) Improved correction formulas support. Now in addition to “x” variable representing current data source the formulas may also use sibling data sources. For example, you may use “x – “RAM Usage”” correction formula for “Pagefile usage” (commit charge) data source to subtract RAM usage from displayed value Fixed incorrect tracking markers rendering on the graphs dynamically added to hardware monitoring module Fixed incorrect tracking markers rendering when monitoring ring data buffer is full Added experimental support for Intel i7 and i9 7XXXX LGA2066 CPUs Added CPU package power monitoring for Intel CPUs Minimum sampling interval for CPU usage calculation has been reduced from 1000ms to 100ms Original RivaTuner’s monitoring history fragment selection and selected fragment processing functionality is back! Now you may hold <Shift> and press left mouse button on initial desired position in hardware monitoring window to begin fragment selection, then drag mouse cursor to desired final position and release left mouse button to select a fragment. The following functionality is available for selected fragments: When the fragment is selected, minimum and maximum displayed values are estimated within selected fragment only. This feature can be used if you don’t need the global minimum and maximum values, estimated during whole monitoring session, and wish to see local minimum and maximum values estimated within some shorter period of time (e.g. during benchmark application runtime only). When the fragment is selected you may use the context menu of any graph to set tracking marker into the local minimum or maximum position within the selection. This feature can be used to automate the process of identifying and visualizing the moments of reaching peak values (e.g. peak GPU temperature) on desired fragments Improved monitoring plugins architecture: Added plugin descriptions to plugins selection window Added new SetupSource API function allowing you to configure the plugins. This function is allowing you to customize the plugins either globally from plugin selection window (e.g. configure whole list of data sources exported by each plugin) or customize desired data source only directly from corresponding graph properties window (e.g. change network download rate units from MB/s to KB/s). SetupSource function usage is demonstrated in SDK in updated AIDA64 and PerfCounter plugins Added new GetHostAppProperty API function allowing the plugins to retrieve various properties from the host application (i.e. MSI Afterburner), e.g. retrieve GUI color scheme specific to the currently selected skin. GetHostAppProperty guru function usage is demonstrated in SDK in updated AIDA64 and PerfCounter plugins Improved monitoring plugins: Now the plugins store user customized and built-in default configurations in separate files, so your custom plugin settings won’t be lost on new version install Added configuration GUI for AIDA64, HwInfo and PerfCounter plugins. Each plugin’s user interface is allowing you to edit the list of sensors exported by each plugin, export full list of available sensors to a text file, customize each sensor’s properties or reset plugin settings to defaults Improved PerfCounter plugin: Added support for performance counters with non-localized names (e.g. “GPU Engine” under Windows Fall Creators Update) Added support for dynamic data sources. Dynamic data sources are not validated during creation, such sources are allowed to export no data until some condition is met (e.g. “CPU usage” performance counters specific to some target process export data only when the process is running) Improved SMART plugin: Added airflow temperature SMART attribute support for Intel/Samsung SSDs. Added new CPU plugin: The plugin fully duplicates MSI Afterburner’s built-in CPU temperature monitoring implementation (with the only exception of AMD Ryzen codepath, which cannot be open sourced due to NDA) and shows third party plugin developers how to implement low-level CPU specific sensors in plugins using CPU MSR registers and PCI configuration space access API Added new GPU plugin: The plugin shows third party developers how to extend MSI Afterburner’s GPU monitoring functionality and implement own GPU specific sensors in plugins using GPU enumeration and identification API. The plugin is demonstrating implementation of D3DKMT GPU performance counters providing unified vendor agnostic per-engine GPU usage, dedicated and shared memory usage monitoring Fixed issue in context help system, which could cause the tooltip to flicker when it was displayed below mouse cursor RivaTuner Statistics Server has been upgraded to v7.1.0 Website Download x86/x64

    SafeMSI – Start Windows Installer Service in Safe Mode SafeMSI is a tiny, portable, freeware application designed to let you uninstall programs in safe mode. When the computer is in safe mode, the Windows Installer service isn’t started so most programs can’t be uninstalled. Since technicians do a lot of work in safe mode and being unable to uninstall is a huge bother. It is also not possible to start the service manually, an error message will come up saying “Could not start the Windows Installer service on Local Computer. Error 1084: This service cannot be started in Safe Mode”. This tool will do a registry tweak so that Windows Installer is made a safe service and it will launch the Windows Installer service. The tool is meant to be used after you are already in safe mode, it is a tiny .exe that just needs to be double-clicked or run and it runs very quickly. The website mentions that the tool is compatible with Windows NT, 2000, XP and Server 2000. Although it doesn’t mention it, it is also compatible with newer versions including Windows 7. ====================================================================== Home: http://windows.dailydownloaded.com/en/utilities-operating-systems/system-utilities/18975-safemsiexe-download-install Download: https://download.cnet.com/SafeMSI-exe/3001-2094_4-75724774.html https://www.upload.ee/files/11730656/SafeMSI.zip.html
  4. Hi, Is it possible to add the link to the msi installers into Flash Player Downloads : http://www.adobe.com/products/flashplayer/distribution3.html http://www.nsanedown.com/?request=57232098 Thanks ;) ++
  5. Hi Nsane community :hi: , I have MSI gaming notebook with 8 GB of Nanya RAM (4 * 2) .After about eight month of purchasing date , I got a problem with one of the RAM #1 which cause BSOD (MEMORY MANAGEMENT) .I did memory diagnostic on Windows 7 and the result was "Hardware problem was detected .." . Why this happen ? I did't make any thing wrong with my laptop ,(I mean I really care about its temperature and keep it clean from dust ..) By the way The laptop is still working well (running games , programs ,NET ) except sometimes I get the mentioned BSOD. :please: Is there any one knows about or faced like that problem ? And what do you advise me to do about my sick ram ? :( Solved : I brought my laptop to MSI service center to fix it .. Staff there told me that both of RAMs have a problem .They replaced RAMs with new same brand RAM (NANYA) .When I asked them about what was the problem ,they just told me that "Unexpected error occurred !" The important thing my laptop is now working like charm without any annoying BSOD :D
