Installing Fedena On Windows7

Good morning everyone. Today we’ll discuss a cool open source cross-platform school management software called Fedena and will learn to install it on Windows7. Fedena enables you to centralize all the activities related to a school like admission,attendance,time-table,finance,hostel,library,human resource and examination system. Using this you can create a better and organized way to maintain and monitor all the aspects of managing a school.

So let’s start the installation process of Fedena on Windows7 machine.

  • It’s based on Ruby on Rails, so you’ll have to install ruby on your system which you can download from here.
  • Click on Start Command Prompt with Ruby and issue gem install bundler –remote command.
  • Issue gem install win32-open3 command.
  • Install MySQL. You can get the required MySQL package from this link.
  • Copy C:\Program Files\MySQL\MySQL Server 5.0\bin\libmySQL to C:\Ruby187\bin and restart the MySQL service.
  • Download Fedena from this link and extract it. I have extracted it to C drive. Now you’ll get a directory called release.
  • Issue cd c:\release command to go to the Fedena source directory.
  • Issue bundle install –local command.
  • Open C:\release\config\database and under the development line, just update your MySQL username and password.
  • Issue  bundle exec rake db:create command to create the database.
  • Issue command bundle exec rake db:migrate to populate the database with data.
  • Issue bundle exec mongrel_rails start command to start the mongrel server.
  • Open your browser and go to 127.0.0.1:3000. Here you will see the login screen of Fedena.

Good morning guys. This time I have come with a very interesting and creative post. Actually this is not a tutorial at all. Instead I will love to share my first flash game with you people. Remember my previous posts about the cool tool StencylWorks to create flash games.I have used that tool and some tutorials from their site to create this game. You can play this game on this link.
My First Flash Game- Pussy Hunt

The game is still in its beta version as I am testing it. So I think you can help me in this regard. Just play this game on gamegum.com from the link I have mentioned above and if you find any bug or have a suggestion to improve it then feel free to leave a comment here and I will consider your suggestions. In the meantime you can also use Stencyl to create your own games.

Have a nice day.

Use Your Pen Drive As A Password

Today we’ll see a cool trick about using your pen drive as your password to log into your computer. The beauty of this trick is that you don’t even need to download any additional software to do so. The feature is in-built into your Windows7 operating system. So all you need is a pen drive which will act as your password. So let’s start the program without further delays.

First of all you will need to change the drive letter of your pen drive to A. So type Disk Management in the search box of the Windows and you’ll see Create and format hard disk partitions in search result. Open this link to launch the Disk Management utility. Here you’ll see info about your hard disk partitions and removable disks. So right-click on your pen drive and select Change Drive Letter And Paths.Now change the drive letter of the pen drive and assign A to it. Now it’s done so let’s go ahead.

It’s time to enter syskey in the windows search box to open the syskey program.You’ll see a screen like this-

Enable the encryption which is by default enabled.Now click on Update button and you’ll see the following screen-

Choose to Store Startup Key on Floppy Disk and click OK.Now a startup key will be stored in your pen drive. If you have noticed that this program stores the startup key on floppy disk and that’s the reason why we have to change the drive letter of our pen drive to A because A and B represents floppy drives.

At this stage the process is completed and the next time you boot into your machine you’ll require that pen drive to login.Happy free password booting.
