How to Join an Active Directory Domain in Windows 10?

Short answer: the using the Run as Administrator PowerShell command line like

Add-Computer -domain example.net

Benefits are:

  1. Command line is less likely to change. Most of the GUI steps I found do not apply to my Windows 10
  2. You got more clue (i.e. debug message). GUI just tell me “Something is wrong, ask your administrator…”, but I am the administrator, who should I ask? :-/

Command line reveals me the true cause: “The user is disabled”. After I enable the user on the server side with

dsmod user <UserDN> -disabled no

Things are worked as expected.

Pitifull Windows error message

I kept a Window partation on my mini311, mainly for tax reporting software (which only function on Window) and Gaming.

Recently I kept encounter this error dialog:

How I suppose to know which exe/dll trigger this error? Yes, it says that I should contact the application’s support team, but which one?

As you can see, the dialog size cannot be changed, thus you cannot enlarge the window and see if it’s truncated because of window size.
