About Melars-schlageter

Dear reader,

Thank you for visiting winsrv2012.it-zeugs.de. My name is Lars Schlageter. I was born in Germany in 1969 and lived for a long time in the beautiful Black Forest, more precisely in Titisee-Neustadt. There I started working on a computer at the age of 12. Back then it was a ZX81.

I am an IT engineer. My profession brought me to Switzerland in 2006. Since 2017 I work in the customer support of the hosting provider cyon GmbH in Basel.

I started my computer career as a freelancer in the Black Forest. There I acquired a very broad knowledge of computer science.

After my time as my own boss, I ended up in systems engineering. I took care of servers and clients, supervised customer projects. Sometimes it felt as if there was nothing with computers that I hadn’t done before. At least in the Windows world. All this in a small company with few employees. Many night shifts, where servers had to be patched, became a bit much at some point and I decided to follow my budding passion of “tinkering” with websites professionally and ended up at a web host.

But this is also the reason why there is not much new to read here.

I have collected a few certificates over the years, here only the last ones:

  • Additional education “Certified Webmaster”
  • Course “Assessing and influencing Google evaluations
  • Course “Script programming with PHP
  • Course “HTML4.x and XHTML – Hypertext Markup Language”


  • MCP 70-413: Designing and Implementing a Server Infrastructure
  • MCP 70-410: Installing and Configuring Windows Server 2012 R2
  • MCP 70-659: TS: Windows Server 2008 R2, Server Virtualization

In my free time I like to travel, write and take pictures. You can read more about it on my private homepage lars-schlageter.com (on german).

Important note about my e-mail address: Inquiries about computer problems via e-mail will be left unanswered in the future. I run this website as a hobby besides my job. Accordingly my time is limited. The best chance that a solution to your problem will appear is if you write it as a comment under the article or under the video. That way I can see which problems occur more often. If I find time, I will gladly record this for new articles or videos. Or someone from the community will answer your problem. Thank you for your understanding.
