  1. Oh wow! Thanks chilifrei64. That is definatly a big help. Thanks for the answer!
  2. Hey guys, I am just learning how to write batch files to automatically do commands that I want done with each machine I build for the company I work for. I was wondering, does anyone know a script I can use in a bat file to enable Remote Desktop Users for a windows xp machine and then add two groups to the user list (signicorp\Domain Admins and signicastdomain\Domain Admins)? All I want is those two groups to be added to the Remote Desktop Connection Users list. If you need any more details about what I am looking for a solution to, just reply with what you would like to know. Thank you very much for all your help and support! It is greatly appreciated. Thanks!
  3. Hi Everyone, my home network currently has a domain controller running Windows Server 2003. I have Active Directory setup so users must log in on each computer in our home. I was wondering... Does anyone know how to set each user's Internet home page maybe in Active Directory. If there is not way in Active Directory is there any other way. What I want is so the home page in Internet Explorer automatically changes to what is set for that user when they log in to ANY computer rather than changing it for when the user logs in the first time to the computer manually. Thank you!
  4. Hey Everyone, Ahhh, I am so saddened that 321 Studios went under and took it's customer support with it. See I bought the software (DVD X Copy Xpress) when it just came out and then I kept it updated all the way too version 3.2.1.0. The problem is I format my hard drive often to start fresh and so I have to reinstall the software I use (I have a bat file so everything is installed automatically) but everytime you instally DVD X Copy you have to activate it online. Since I activate it often and it only allows a certain number of activations until you call them and ask them to reset the activations it says for me "The alotted number of activations have been used, please contact customer support" and when I do it tells me the number has been disconnected since the User Rights Policy case has banned 321 Studios from the U.S. And only users that already have it can use it but without and support from 321 Studios. I went to http://dvdxcopy.afterdawn.com/thread_view.cfm/122156 and it said that if I am a registered user then they can help me activate it. (And yes I am registered) But when I contacted them they said I had to buy a NEW License ID and password for $50 and my guess is that it wouldn't be legal anymore then I think. So does anyone know the registry keys that are added to tell the software that it is activated. If someone has DVD X COPY XPRESS installed on their system please contact me or PM me and we can work this out. I promise I will not try to steal your License ID and Password because I have my own. I PROMISE! And if you want my to prove it I could. hehe Thank you very very much! Kevin Nakielski
  5. Does anyone know a registry tweak to disable the 'Options' button on the Classic Windows Login screen. I am on a domain and on the login screen, I want to either get rid of the options button, grey it out, or to just make it so that it doesn't expand when a password is typed incorrectly. THANKS FOR ALL YOUR SUPPORT! Keep on rockin'
  6. WOW WOW WOW! I much more love the idea to edit the ntuser.dat file. It is SO EASY! I never would of thought of doing that! Thank you so much jrzycrim now my unattended install cd IS COMPLETE AND PERFECT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! THANKS AGAIN.... to everyone!
  7. Ahh someone please please please help. The items in my Send to command folder have dissappeared. Now what? Is there a registry tweak to put back the default send to commands?
  8. Is there an easier way to do this rather than manually after unattended install is finished?
  9. I want to use the Windows XP style start menu as you all may have read before. haha. But see, if I do that and do not use the classic style, then I have to add a registry tweak for showing certain icons on the desktop, here is what I use to do that: ;Display Desktop icons [HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\HideDesktopIcons\NewStartPanel] "{20D04FE0-3AEA-1069-A2D8-08002B30309D}"=dword:00000000 "{450D8FBA-AD25-11D0-98A8-0800361B1103}"=dword:00000000 "{645FF040-5081-101B-9F08-00AA002F954E}"=dword:00000000 "{871C5380-42A0-1069-A2EA-08002B30309D}"=dword:00000000 But I also want them to be displayed in that order which is: My Computer My Documents Recycle Bin Internet Explorer Obviously if I just leave the tweak like that the order it puts the icons in is first My Computer (I added the 00000054 binary tweak to do that) then My Documents and then Internet Explorer. Yep, the Recycle Bin still shows up way in the bottom right-hand corner. So I found a tweak to move it over by the rest of the icons and it is: ;Move Recycle Bin by the rest of the icons [HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\CLSID\{645FF040-5081-101B-9F08-00AA002F954E}] "SortOrderIndex"=dword:00000000 But that makes it just show up under the Internet Explorer icon and I want it ABOVE it. Now everything I try to get the Recycle Bin to appear above the Internet Explorer icon doesn't work. I have searched everywhere and I cannot find anything By the way, th code I used to get the My Computer before my documents is this: ;Order icons for the Desktop [HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\CLSID\{450D8FBA-AD25-11D0-98A8-0800361B1103}] "SortOrderIndex"=dword:00000054 Thanks for your help. Good luck with this one
  10. FINALLY I FOUND IT! GOD I AM SO HAPPY! So if you want you Recycle Bin Icon to not appear off in it's own little corner when doing an unattended install... use this tweak. [HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\CLSID\{645FF040-5081-101B-9F08-00AA002F954E}] "SortOrderIndex"=dword:00000000
  11. Yes but wont that then just make the My Documents folder appear first. Because in my unattended install i used that tweak but I used 54 (so the my computer would appear first) and it did But the Recycle Bin still appeared in the bottem right corner while the ordered icons on the left side were: My Computer My Documents Internet Explorer
  12. Is there a different UNATTENDED way, other than just move around the icons around manually after windows install?
  13. Yes that is correct. I absolutely DON'T want the users as administrators. I just want them to have the ability to install programs.
  14. OHHHHHH! AHHHHH!! I like that! THANK YOU GLENT!
  15. Hi everyone, I figured out how to get the icons I wanted to appear on the desktop in unattended install but still keeping the Windows XP Start menu. I was wondering, the 4 icons I want are My Computer, My Douments, Recycle Bin, and Internet Explorer... and in that order too! See, right now the icons will show up as My Computer, My Documents, Internet Explorer and then the Recycle Bin is way off in the far bottom-right corner. Anyone know how to change the order so the recycle bin comes before ie? this is the order i want: My Computer My Documents Recycle Bin Internet Explorer
  16. ;Automatically sort start munu and favorites menu [-HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\MenuOrder\Favorites] [-HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\MenuOrder\Start Menu] [-HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\MenuOrder\Start Menu2] This will work PERMINATLY in an unattended install. It has been tested completely. It is permanent when not unattended but u must do this: 1. right click start menu and click Sort by Name then they will sort automatically 2. log off right after step one and then log back in 3. it will now always auto sort the start menu for that user if that doesnt work, you're doing something wrong
  17. Yeah, i will have to do something like that then. Thank you for your fast reply
  18. I have one more challenge for you all... Can anyone figure out how to allow ALL users to install software? I would like a registry file perhaps. By default, only Power Users and Administrators can install software, but I want all users.
  19. Found it. This regisitry will set you Power Scheme settings to 'Presentation' which that it will set the system to 'never' turn off monitor, 'never' go into stand by and 'never' turn off hard disks. If you use this registry key, you can change the previous settings by right click the desktop and go into properties/Screen Saver/Power. [HKEY_USERS\S-1-5-21-1949423839-386240697-2482714523-1115\Control Panel\PowerCfg] "CurrentPowerPolicy"="2"
  20. I just want it so the monitor will never turn off (and it will set this automatically when I do an unattended install).
  21. Does anyone know how I can disable the monitor powersave (also refurred to as: monitor turn off) in a registry. Or maybe not disable it but just set it to never. Thank you.
  22. Why are all the people on this forum so grouchie and SO EVIL! I am sorry, that I accidentally click new topic rather than New Reply! GOD **** dudes, knock the whinnin s*** off please and grow up.
  23. That's funny, you put the answer on there just while I was typing up the registry key that I FINALLY FOUND! lol. Well, at least I have the answer now. THANK YOU.
  24. GOT IT! After searching THROUGHALLY through the registry, I FINALLY FOUND THE ANSWER! FINALLY. Okay, so then this is the registry key if you want to automatically set the My Computer link in the XP Start Menu to it's own Menu... ;Switch My Computer link to MENU [HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\Advanced] "Start_ShowMyComputer"=dword:00000002
  25. SOMEBODY PLEASE FIGURE THIS REGISTRY KEY OUT! I need it so bad. THANK YOU SO MUCH!
