Not sure why. It is dead simple to do.

I would suggest simply writing your own powershell scripts for this then.

comment Hard time trying to install SQL Server 2008 R2 on Windows 7
All that I can tell you is that I have done this install several times and found it to be extremely finicky. For instance one time I got errors trying to run it from a network share but it ran fine from a local path. Other times it ran fine from the share. Sorry I don't have anything more constructive. All I can say is to try tweaking the install environment and hope to get exactly what it wants.

comment Can't delete file even though Windows Server 2012 acts like it is deleting
Next time I would suggest using Handle.exe (technet.microsoft.com/en-us/sysinternals/bb896655.aspx) to look for a lock. The fact that a reboot removed the issue makes me think that there was a lock on the file.

That site (or another site hosted at the same IP) is blacklisted in my security software.

comment Windows wildcards with files having more than 3 characters extensions
Just to be clear, I do see the same behavior as the OP. I will also add that trying to use the 8.3 name of the files would still not work since the first part of the file name gets changed to do the 8.3 name and the extension would be changed to .txt in this example so trying to wildcard on the extension still would not work even using dir /x

comment Cannot enable Notification Area in Windows 7
I would also point out that if you are in a domain and you are not a domain admin you would not see machine policies in RSOP.

comment How to disable automatic updates of softwares in Windows
There is no one answer. Each of those pieces of software have a different way to disable automatic updates. Just poke around in the settings for each one.

comment How to pivot a column into a row?
I'm sure that this is the right answer, but if you look at the OP's description of the desired result it would be a diagonal line not a row. :)

But you didn't just wait. You criticized someone else's answer that may or may not work fine for the OP.

@LPChip, provide a better answer. That is how superuser works. If you have a suggestion to improve this answer that works too. Ultimately the OP decides if this answer is best or another. So if this one is a problem for you provide a better one.

Change the answer to put the command into a batch file, have him put the batch file in the start menu. Voila, one button shutdown.
