PWMTR32V.DLL side by side configuration problem error during windows vista start boot up

IBM i

Just did a clean in install of Windows XP Pro followed by an immediate upgrade to Vista… yes I know its a pain…. but I only have an upgrade disc.
 
After sitting through hours worth of service packs, hotfixes and various other massively packaged Microsoft downloads i eventually got my trusty Ibm Lenovo Thinkpad Z60T to a stage where it’s more or less working… now its on to the next stage… Thinkpad bits.
Mainly I like the fingerprint scanner… it’s great just to power up, swipe and be logged in.
 
So, this time i downloaded the Lenovo System Updater…

What happened to Projex400?

IBM i

PROJEX/400 – The Developers Freeware Toolkit for the IBM AS400 iSeries evolved over time from the System/38 through iseries machines. I stopped developing it during 2002, but left the installer and some source code stagnating in a dark and dingy corner of the website. Doing a little spring clean a while back, thinking that it […]

another snippet from an old document I found in a dim dark and hazy corner of an even older HDD… The SDLC System Development Life Cycle… rather than let it disintegrate, here it is migrating to the web just in the (extreme) off chance that it may be useful to someone out there. Hey.. if […]

The AS400 is dead – long live the IBM iSeries

AS400 , IBM i , iSeries

The long-rumored and much-debated rebranding of IBM’s disparate server lines, known under the code-name Mach1, was announced on October 3, just a few weeks before the fall COMMON midrange trade show in Baltimore. The AS/400 is henceforth known as the iSeries 400, not the I/500, as had been widely reported. But there’s a lot more to Mach1 than renaming the AS/400. For the next several months, IBM is going to be blitzing the media and its customer base in an attempt to establish a new, unifying brand identity for its server lines, as well as new subbrand identities for the machines that used to be called AS/400s, S/390s, RS/6000s, Netfinities, and NUMA-Qs.

AS/6000 to Replace AS/400 and the RS/6000

IBM i , Life

(Note: The AS/400 Geek originally wrote this piece as an April Fools joke in April of 1997 for a local AS/400 user group newsletter. Notice how close this humorous article has become reality. The text is exactly as published in 1997.) When IBM recently announced that it was moving its Austin, Texas-based RS/6000 assembly operations […]
