  1. While playing a little with the shell in winxp64 I stumbled across a strange problem:

    When I run the command

    tasklist /FI "USERNAME eq %USERDOMAIN%\%USERNAME%" /FI "ImageName eq msiexec.exe"

    On a WinXp 64 bit, I get the output

    INFO: No tasks are running which match the specified criteria.

    on a WinXP 32bit, I get

    INFO: No tasks running with the specified criteria.

    So nearly the same

    But when I run the command

    for /f "tokens=1" %i in ('tasklist /FI "USERNAME eq %USERDOMAIN%\%USERNAME%" /FI "ImageName eq msiexec.exe"') do echo anything

    on a 64bit xp, I get the output:

    D:\>echo anything

    on a 32bit xp, I get the output

    INFO: No tasks running with the specified criteria.

    So it seems, that on a 32bit xp the INFO message seems not to be in the stdout, but it is in 64bit xp.

    Can anyone explain this to me?

    Especially, does anyone know, where the message on a 32bit xp is redirected?

  2. Hi there,

    I've got a strange problem on a computer. Every User has to logoff two times, till Windows does it. So when you click logoff first time nothing happens, when you click it another time, it logs off fine, even if the second logoff comes directly after the first one. Checking the task manager after clicking the first time doesn't show any process, which is very busy.

    I really don't have a clue, what the problem could be.

    Does anyone else has?

    Any help would be appreciated.

  3. Perhaps I missed the point, but does the Mstsc.exe work?

    And by the way, normally the Remote Desktop Connection is located in Start -> Programs -> Accessoires -> !!!!!!Communication!!!! -> Remote Desktop Connection, not in System Tools

  4. Do you have integrated additional SATA drivers? This problem occurs, if you don't have integrated the SATA drivers in a right way or if you try to add them from a disk while performing an unattended setup.

    I suggest to disable the automatic restart, when a BSOD occurs, with the following regkey:


  5. For Firefox, I use the following batch to set a configuration script:

    IF NOT exists "%PROGRAMFILES%\mozilla Firefox"\defaults\pref\firefox.js echo didnt find config.file && pause && exit
    echo pref("network.proxy.autoconfig_url","http://www.mydomain.de/proxy.pl" ); >> "%PROGRAMFILES%\mozilla firefox"\defaults\pref\firefox.js
    echo pref("network.proxy.type",2); >> "%PROGRAMFILES%\mozilla firefox"\defaults\pref\firefox.js

    To make an adequate script, just make the settings in firefox and have a look, which lines are added to the prefs.js file.

    Should be very similar for netscape, but we don't use it in the institute, I'm working in, anymore.

  6. Have a try with these regtweaks:

    Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00

    ;Enables the autologon for username without password
    [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\Winlogon]

  7. To make this clear: I don't want to have the normal autocompletion in XP for files and folders, but an adequate thing for the commands.

    In the standard XP-installation this isn't contained or just not enabled, I don't know.

  8. I'm wondering, if it is possible to activate autocompletion for commands like in linux. So for example I want to be able in command line type "xc + TAB" and then have it completed to xcopy.

    Furthermore it would be nice to have a possibility to add some fixed path to autocompletion.

    Anyone has an idea, if this is possible?

    Thanks in advance.
