  1. My sysprep.inf: I'm running sysprep with: c:\sysprep\sysprep -mini -reseal
  2. Hi, I'm trying to move XP created in virtual enviroment to physical machine. I was reading on V2P conversion on vmware site http://www.vmware.com/support/v2p/index.html and couldn't get my virtual image to work on HP PC. I am doing sysprep with my custom sysprep.inf for mini setup but that doesn't seem to make any difference. The PC boots goes to safe and other modes prompt, after any selection PC restarts and same prompt again. Can you please tell me if there's a guide on V2P or something? Thanks

  5. I've got a vbs script which reads argument and takes it as a variable i.e. myscript.vbs /var:1 my script reads this as StrMyvar = Wscript.Arguments.Named("var") Is there any way of passing value to var from file in Linux it would look like this myscript /var:`cat /path/to/file` what is the equivalent of this in DOS?
  6. Hi, I wonder if somebody could help me with RLE format please.

See file attached Thanks very much for your help! test.bmp
  7. Hi, Is there any other way of editing startup/shutdown script policy instead of gpedit.msc? If somebody could please point me to the right direction of doing this via registry or vbs, i'd much appreciate it! cheers
