One of the most widely used email clients and personal manager tools, the MS Outlook application is ideal for business professionals and individuals alike. It has tools like calendars, notes, journals, and tasks. All the information from your emails to your calendars and notes are saved in PST files. The PST files consist of all your data in Outlook. However one of the small drawbacks of using Outlook is that you have to deal with PST file corruption from time to time. PST files may get damaged due to a wide variety of reasons ranging from virus attacks through your mail, corruption of the PST file header, or the PST file itself exceeding the maximum size.

Fortunately there is a default tool in Outlook that can fix these issues easily. The Inbox Repair Tool is the Outlook repair software that comes with the application.

Avid Releases Pro Tools 8 Update With Windows 7 Support

Avid revealed this week the latest update to their DAW application, Pro Tools, with a mentionable revision or update in version 8.03. The great thing about this new version is that it can support Apple Snow Leopard (OS X), and also has a public ‘beta’ for Windows 7 32-bit AND 64-bit support. Additionally, through this Windows online support article we are letting you know that this latest version do not support Avid’s oldest hardware interfaces (Mbox), or any PowerPC Macs.

Another thing is that it is available in Pro Tools HD, LE, and M-Powered versions, PT 8.0.3 also has many new “requested software improvements and fixes” based on what Avid has revealed.

Moreover, Avid has provided a detailed PDF containing the details of over 100 fixes to PT8, but some of the more noteworthy fixes include editing (keyboard shortcuts), video (QuickTime error under Vista), MIDI errors with Reason 4 through Rewire, and MIDI zooming etcetera. Digidesign databases are now actually stored on system drive rather than the usual individual volumes (it is indeed about time they did that), and memory improvements have been made during indexing; ‘don’t show dialog again’ option has been inserted to many common error and warning dialog windows (even this should have been done much before). There is considerable improvement seen in the horizontal scrolling with trackballs and Apple Mighty Mouse.

In case of Windows users that are running Vista, or who have installed the Internet Explorer 8 under Win XP SP3; there has been a major fix for Pro Tools covering the DAW not launching when Internet 8 is installed on Windows. But, we would like to add in this Windows online support article that some plug-ins will probably still not work properly in case IE8 is installed, this includes Structure, Strike, Velvet, and Hybrid. This issue is being worked on.

In case you are planning to migrate to Windows 7, then there are also many updated hardware drivers. First of all, this update is a ‘bug fix’ update, and not actually ‘new features’ update (which could probably mean a full dot revision).

In case of those users using the Avid’s latest ELEVEN rack hardware, there are some reports of ‘runtime errors’ with Windows PT LE when opening a new session, and also Avid is recommending users of that hardware to not to update to this version in case you are using the Windows version of LE.

Get Free Microsoft Evaluation Products

Those who subscribe to TechNet are in for a rough ride in the upcoming months. The Microsoft low-cost subscription service which helps subscribed individuals evaluate and test software, ended last year. As always, for more money you get an MSDN subscription, which provides much of the same tools as TechNet. However, if you needs are more specific, then getting free TechNet Evaluation Center would be a better alternative.

However the Redmond-based company has been promoting the program very strongly, which also provides free downloads of Microsoft products. You will find everything here is a complete evaluation version, with no restriction on any of its features. The software can be installed and run on any machine, or even a virtual machine. The software giant also promised that it will be providing older versions of Windows and Microsoft Office, to run a free evaluation along with all the products in the current package. The main goal behind this decision is to let IT pros install software, and employ them for their pilot projects and compatibility testing.

So many offers, but surely, there must be a catch right? In fact there is. These downloads all have a time stamp on them, which means as soon as the dates expire, these will stop functioning, or have a reduced functionality. However, the testing period for the programs ranges from a mere month to six months –ample time to finish all the different testing procedures. The lineup in the package contains support for the following:
  • Windows 7 Enterprise Evaluation with a maximum duration of 90 days.
  • Windows Server 2008 R2 SP1 Evaluation, which lasts about 180 days.
  • Microsoft Office Professional Plus 2010 with support for 60 days.
  • Project Professional 2010 with support lasting 60days.
  • Vista Premium 2010 with support up to 60 days.
Those products that are already running at their extended support, are not part of the list. This means Windows XP or Windows Vista, Server 2008, and any Office version before 2010, will not be part of the list. If you sign into TechNet you can get the download links pretty easily. You will have to agree to a couple of emails that Microsoft will send over to you during your evaluation phase. Some of the new additions to the products available on TechNet include the Windows 8 Enterprise Evaluation, Windows Server 2012, Windows Small Business server 2011, and Office 365 Pro Plus.
