Warface: The parameter is incorrect error

My game stopped working after Windows 10 update about half a year ago. The support was no help at all and I couldn’t find anything useful on the internet. Today I decided to give it another try. And I got it working again.

There were 2 errors I was getting trying to launch the game. One said its “not 32bit application” and other “the parameter is incorrect”.

There is a workaround, just disable “core isolation”, which is a security feature of Windows 10. I have to warn you, you may be compromising your security to play a poorly programmed game. You can find out what exactly core isolation is and how to disable it here. Don’t forget to restart your computer after.

PatchCleaner – clean up the windows/installer directory

Imagine you are in my shoes. I have 120 GB SSD with 10 GB of free space. The computer was installed 4 years ago and later upgraded to Windows 10. I install and uninstall a lot of stuff. I found out that folder “installer” hidden in my “windows” directory is taking up 18 GB. What can I delete safely?

PatchCleaner, freeware tool by HomeDev, comes to rescue.

The installer folder contains files needed to uninstall or update your software. PatchCleaner compares those files with the list your Windows is keeping and determines which of them are no longer needed. Then you can simply delete them (or move them) to reclaim your precious space. I got back 14 GB of 18 GB in the installer folder, neat, isn’t it?

Some of you will surely appreciate you can run PatchCleaner easily from the command line, with event log output and all. Great way to set up a scheduled task and forget it.

There are basically only 2 switches:

/d - execute and delete files
/m - execute and move to the standard location
/m [FilePath] - execute and move to your chosen location

VMware vSphere Web Client failed to load with error #2032

So, I wanted to check something in my vSphere Web Client (vCenter 5.5U3), but I was unable to log in and there was this error at the bottom of the screen:

RSL https://thisSERVERofMINE:9443/vsphere-client/locales/rsl/flex-common-lib-5.5.0.swf failed to load. Error #2032

There is a really simple solution and I would love if the error message was useful for once and told me so. You just need to clear your browser cache.

Internet Explorer – that would be CTRL-SHIFT-DEL and selecting temporary files
Google Chrome – also CTRL-SHIFT-DEL and selecting cache
