high sierra – Remote Desktop 10.2.3 Database Creation Error; 10.2.1 runs fine; 10.2.2 crashes: how to find actual cause(s)? – Ask Different

Posted by jpluimers on 2020/12/21

From a while back:

What would be good steps to find the cause of the below errors?

I get this error when running Microsoft Remote Desktop 10.2.3 or higher on MacOS High Sierra:

Database Creation Error

"An error occurred during persistent store migration.

[Domain: NSCocoaErrorDomain, Code: 134110]"

Tools I use for audio/video downloading, media conversion and audio editing

Posted by jpluimers on 2020/07/03

A friend asked me what tools I use for downloading media, converting it to various formats (including audio extraction) and audio editing.

It is a surprisingly short list:

Most of it runs out of the box on Mac OS X/MacOS/OS X, as I’ve moved there form Windows for most of my day to day access to systems (there is a great set of Microsoft Remote Desktop in the app store: [Archive.isMicrosoft Remote Desktop 8.0 on the Mac App Store and [Archive.isMicrosoft Remote Desktop 10 on the Mac App Store; I like the first one better).

Audacity shortcuts

Shortcuts make Audacity life a lot easier. For keyboard shortcuts, Mac users use Command (⌘) instead of Ctrl.

xrdp

Posted by jpluimers on 2020/04/06

I totally missed this the last 5 years. Where have I been (:

[WayBack] xrdp: An open source remote desktop protocol(rdp) server.

It runs on top of either Xvnc (which I have used) or X11rdp and should be usable with any RDP client (like the excellent Microsoft RDP for Mac OS X).

VNC, Windows and UAC prompts

Posted by jpluimers on 2019/02/15

Since I needed to maintain a Windows PC behind a VPN connection via the console (so not via RDP sessions) including installation of software, I needed a (preferably free or open source) solution supporting elevation through UAC (User Account Control).

For a good description of differences between RDP and VNC, see [WayBack] remote desktop – TightVNC while an RDP session is running – Super User by [WayBackUser Canadian Luke.

Of the many non functional search results, the one suggesting running UltraVNC as a service is the one that really worked: [WayBack] If you install UltraVNC as a service, you can see the UAC notifications and press the buttons… VNC on windows 7 with administrator rights – Super User.

  1. I only needed the “Ultra VNC Server Silent” installation (see screenshot below).
  2. Run the UltraVNC settings (default location for the settings application is C:\Program Files\uvnc bvba\UltraVNC\uvnc_settings.exe)
    1. In the Security tab, be sure to set good passwords for read/write access (VNC Password) and read-settings (View-Only password)
    2. In the  Service tab, ensure the service is installed and if it is stop+start the service
  3. Optionally ensure a TLS or SSH tunnel (as by default ports 5900 and 5800 are unencrypted)
    • I need to research this further, as there seems to be a plugin possibility.

Now I can use Screen Sharing on my Mac to access the machine via a VPN over the VNC protocol. Combined with a Wake On LAN feature in the remote network, this works splendid.
