Posted by on 16. J 2015 in Blog

So – ever since Adobe Reader DC came out – I’ve tried hiding the annoying right side pane that comes up everytime I open a pdf-file – this is what Adobe calls the Tools pane. In April 2015 – Adobe Reader DC 15.007.20033 it was not possible to hide this pane, but with the newest version 15.008.20082 it IS! Now, what I do for my users is add these two registry entries upon a new installation. (I’ve used Customization Wizard and added...

OpenSSL – useful commands

Posted by on 25. J 2015 in Blog

So – my webhost Unoeuro has finally made it possible for me to add ssl-certificates to my websites. Even for subdomains – that is awesome! Althought they do claim a fee, which is why madsd.dk is not ssl-protected. It’s still money, you know 😉 My webhost demands .crt and unencrypted .key-files. Windows usually export to .pfx so I need to split that in 2 files. OpenSSL to the rescue. Public key extraction openssl pkcs12 -in mypfxfile.pfx -clcerts -nokeys...

WinPE keyboard, input locale

Posted by on 22. J 2013 in Blog

So – I’ve recently build a new WinPE USB disk, but I’ve totally forgotten how to customize it to my danish keyboard. It took some time, but I finally found out that this command should do the trick (+ I wanted timezone set correct too) dism /Image:mount /Set-AllIntl:da-DK dism /Image:mount /Set-TimeZone:”Romance Standard Time” These commands assume you’re in a directory where you’ve already mounted a boot.wim (WinPE-image) to a...
