  3. Go to Windows Start menu and open RUN. Or you can press on your keyboard the Windows key and letter R.
  4. Type CMD in the run textbox and click on OK. This will open the command prompt window.
  5. Type these commands and press enter. Then click OK on each prompts :
    regsvr32 regwizc.dll
    regsvr32 licdll.dll
  6. Type this last command (type exactly as what you see here):
    rundll32.exe syssetup,SetupOobeBnk
  7. Wait for a couple of minutes because the last command will not show anything on the screen. However, it will reset the licensing components in the background.

Tell apt-get not to install “recommends” packages in Debian Linux

Tip: Tell apt-get not to install “recommends” packages in Debian Linux


Purpose: If you are using Debian Lenny and are installing software packages using apt-get then you might have noticed the new version of apt-get in Lenny installs the “recommends” packages automatically thus increasing the number of packages installed on your computer. The “apt-get” in Debian Etch (4.0) did not use to install “recommends” packages.  In this post, we will see how we can permanently tell apt-get NOT to install “recommends” packages.  For those of you who are not sure about Debian’s “depends”, “recommends” and “suggested” packages, please refer to this doc. This is important if you have limited storage space on your system, say for example an embedded system.
