Simple tip to share only specified folders with Remote Desktop Connections

I was acessing the production server via explorer \\server\,  until the network team has disabled this feature for security issues, which got me annoyed I dont want to take a whole partition of my disk as a local resource with the remote desktop connection.

My freind Michael showed me how I can take only a specified folder by mapping a new network drive to the specified local folder on my machine, then take this drive as local resource with my remote desktop connection to the production server.

Easily Uninstall and Install Windows Services with batch file

I have spent some time editing a windows service after installing (and uninstalling) it for several times and I have to admit that this consumes time on the command line tool, so I have written a batch file to stop the service, uninstall it, install it, and start it again, and all what i need to do is to run the batch file.

Paste the following lines in a file.txt, replace the service name and the service path to match yours, and rename the file to file.bat.

@ECHO Stopping service..
net stop AlertsService
@ECHO service stopped.
@ECHO Uninstalling Service…
@SET PATH=%PATH%;C:Program FilesMicrosoft Visual Studio 9.0VC
“C:WINDOWSMicrosoft.NETFrameworkv2.0.50727installutil” -u “C:DebugAlertsWindowsService.exe”
@ECHO Uninstall Done.
@ECHO Reinstalling..
“C:WINDOWSMicrosoft.NETFrameworkv2.0.50727installutil” -i “C:DebugAlertsWindowsService.exe”
@ECHO Install Done.
@ECHO Starting Service..
net start AlertsService
