Fix CodeProject.AI Service Not Starting in Windows

I run CodeProject.AI alongside Blue Iris on a refurbished Dell Optiplex 7050 to enable person/vehicle detection for my security cameras.

The Hibernate power option is a great way to keep everything where I left it when I’m going to be away from my PC for a long time (e.g. when going to bed or even on a vacation). Sometimes I’ll have several applications, a couple dozen browser tabs, and a bunch of Windows Explorer folders…

Burn ISO File to Disc in Windows 10

I wanted to make a bootable Ubuntu 16.04 disc the other day for an older PC and I wasn’t sure how to burn the ISO image to a disc. It’s not that I’ve never done it–I’ve created dozens of bootable discs since the days of Windows 98–it’s just that I haven’t needed to burn a…
