  1. Thank you for the tip... unfortunately it did not resolve the problem (I even tried rebooting a few times to be sure).
  2. Hi GL! Thank you for your reply - it has given me hope. Unfortunately I have been unable to locate the suggested string DowncaseSPNBecauseApiOwnerIsTooLazy anywhere in the registry of any of my 2003 terminal servers - for the record none of them are R2 and they are all running SP2.
  3. Thank you for taking time to respond. Yes everything is nicely setup in active directory. Even if the changes are made as soon as the user logs off and back on the changes are gone and the printer is again incorrectly setup. I have tried to make a script that would fix it but the only way I can get it to work is remove the registry entry using .REG/batch goto regedit press F5 so it updates and THEN it will allow the creation of the new entry (with the same name but different case). I would prefer to rather find out WHY it is not working on this one server but working perfectly on the 3 other servers we use.
  4. Alright I actually made a little bit of progress myself. If i go to HKCU\Printers\Connections\,,server,PRINTER03 for a user that has the problem and change this to HKCU\Printers\Connections\,,SERVER,PRINTER03 then it works. This would be annoying to do for all users and not everyone is supposed to have this printer and the problem also applies to new users. Does anyone have any tips? Thank you in advance!
  5. Hello, We are using economy software called Navision which was originally developed for DOS but has since been bought out by Microsoft and is now running under Windows. Our issue is when you type in a printer path in Navision its case sensitive so if i tell Navision to print to \\SERVER\PRINTER03 and the printer is mapped ad \\server\PRINTER03 it will not print. We have 4 terminal servers and on one of these servers one printer is mapped as \\server\PRINTER03 where the other printers are mapped fine as \\SERVER\PRINTER01, \\SERVER\PRINTER02 etc. this is driving me crazy!! I have played around with dontprettypath in the registry but this does not change anything when the printer is actually mapped/connected. Could any please provide some ideas etc. as I am going insane over this!

  7. Change default gateway by script

    Hey Bad Boy You can do this using the netsh command. It should be something in the lines of: netsh interface ipv4 set address "Local area connection" gateway BLAH BLAH :-)
  8. Windows ignores my PS/2 mice

    Hi all! I recently bought a PS/2 KVM switch and am now trying to use it with my primary computer. However I can only get the keyboard to work. I have 2 mice, one usb with usb -> ps/2 adapter and one "real" ps/2 mouse. Windows XP does not seem to detect the ps/2 mice. I tried booting from a Ubuntu Linux and then both mice work as ps/2 no problem. Obviously I tried connecting the mice (one at a time) directly to the computer PS/2 port - but without luck! Today I tried reinstalling Windows XP (Pro) in pure desperation and not even during the installation does it detect the ps/2 mouse :-( I am out of ideas!!! someone please help!

  11. Runtime error on last stage

    Argghh got this again today... are you sure there is nothing I can do to aid in the resolvement of this annoyance?
  12. An alternative is to setup everything as you want then save it as a .theme file and include it in $OEM$\Resources\Themes and winnt.sif :-)
  13. [Problem] During XP install (installing devices)

    Hmm maybe I will try that...
  14. Runtime error on last stage

  15. First it asks me if i want to connect to Windows update to look for a driver (I disabled this in nLite but maybe it doesnt work until install is finished?) I click no, not this time - install automaticly & next... it finds the driver itself - i click done and installation completes no problems! How do I get rid of this annoyance ?!?! PLEASE! :-) LAST_SESSION.INI
