  1. Here is my batch file for Pre-SP5 fixes on W2K. Should be very similar on XP. Remember the packaged style (type 2) hotfixes have the /Q:A /R:N switch while the cmd style hotfixes (type 1) use the /passive /norestart switch (for W2K).

  2. Roaming Profile Issues!

    If you use the IP address and it works, then you have a problem with your DNS not properly resolving names to IP. Actually, you can try to ping your server by its name to see if it resolves to the proper IP address.
  3. Thnx dude. I will try the registry snapshot as I have several programs that monitor registry changes. Will post what I find out.
  4. 2K3 Server IP Scope Problem

    It seems you have found your problem (I overlooked the RRAS). You will probably need to extend your dhcp scope to accomodate your RRAS and local clients.
  5. I have a strange problem with the ATI Radeon 9600 when logging in to a Windows 2000 domain as a normal domain user. I cannot get rid of the ATI help window that shows up after driver installation, even after unticking "show this window at startup". When I login locally to the client machine, I do not get the help window, however, when I login as a domain user it always appears ad will only go away (or will not show up if the user has elevated priviledges (domain admin, etc)). Anyone got a clue?
  6. Roaming Profile Issues!

    Dij, I was able to dupe the errors you were getting on my 2K3 Server test machine. I was only able to get the error when I did 2 things wrong. One, my permissions on my Profile "share" was set to "Everyone" with read only permission. Two, my profile path was incorrectly anotated. Make sure your permissions on your Profile shared is "Everyone" Full Control and that your profile path correctly points to the profile shared directory.
  7. 2K3 Server IP Scope Problem

    Is your DC (w2k3) server automatically obtaining an IP for itself? If so, you must statically assign an IP to the server and exclude it from the DHCP IP scope. A DHCP server cannot be a DHCP client. Just a thought.
  8. VMware4

    You cannot install VMWare within a Virtual Machine. I´ve had the same problem trying to install it in a VMWare OS. Works fine, otherwise.
  9. OEM drivers not loading

    I think it should be: OemPnPDriversPath="Drivers\Pro100;Drivers\Pro1000"
  10. homie, If you are feeling Frenchie, here is the web site: http://perso.crans.org/~martin/Doc/Divers/TMS/ select the .pdf file which has the full instructions, in French of course. The Old Dude
  11. homie, I was having the same problem as you so I did some research and found out the the RunOnceExe does not support value type REG_EXPAND_SZ, hence we cannot use environment variables during the installation. To get around this (you have to excuse me if I commit a FUBAR here as the reference I´m quoting is from a French site and my French is not that sharp) you would use a parse.bat script and a file called sed.exe. Sed.exe converts a plain text file into a reg file with full use of environment variables. Here is what mine looks like: parse.bat @echo off echo INSTALLATION PARAMETERS echo . echo INSTALLATION... echo . echo PLEASE BE PATIENT type %systemdrive%\winapps\reg\runonce.txt|%windir%\system32\sed.exe 's/\%%systemdrive\%%/%systemdrive%/g'>%systemdrive%\winapps\reg\runonce.reg Note: between sed.exe and 's/\%%..... there is only one space and not a ENTER. I had to split it this way for a better graphic representation. Having done this I now create a runonce.txt file and dump it to \winapps\reg folder My runonce.txt file looks like this: runonce.txt Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00 [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\RunOnceEx] TITLE = "Unattended Application Setup" [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\RunOnceEx\zz100] "1"="%systemdrive%\\WINAPPS\\Chipset\\Setup.exe -s -f1%systemdrive%\\winapps\\Chipset\\setup.iss" @="Intel 875 Chipset Driver" [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\RunOnceEx\zz110] "1"="%systemdrive%\\WINAPPS\\NVIDIA\\Setup.exe -s -f1%systemdrive%\\winapps\\setup.iss" @="NVIDIA Graphics Driver" [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\RunOnceEx\zz140] "1"="%systemdrive%\\WINAPPS\\OfficeXP\\PROPLUS.MSI /QB" @="Office XP Professional with FrontPage" [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\RunOnceEx\zz150] [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\RunOnceEx\zz160] "1"="%systemdrive%\\WINAPPS\\CloneCD\\clonecd.vbs" @="Elby CloneCD 4202" [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\RunOnceEx\zz190] "1"="%systemdrive%\\WINAPPS\\JASC\\JPSP8.msi /qn" @="JASC Photoshop 8 Pro" [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\RunOnceEx\zz215] "1"="%systemdrive%\\WINAPPS\\CDRWin\\cdr39.exe /s" @="CDRWin 3.9" [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\RunOnceEx\zz220] "1"="%systemdrive%\\WINAPPS\\ISOBuster\\IsoBuster15.exe /VERYSILENT /SP-" @="ISOBuster 1.5" "2"="pskill.exe isobuster.exe" [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\RunOnceEx\zz255] "1"="%systemdrive%\\WINAPPS\\INNO\\ISetup4011.exe /VERYSILENT /SP-" @="INNO Setup" I then create a runonce.bat file and place it in $OEM$ as I will execute it from cmdlines.txt file. It looks like this: runonce.bat @echo off echo System Parameters echo . echo Installation... echo . echo Please be patient %windir%\regedit.exe /s %systemdrive%\winapps\reg\runonce.reg My cmdlines.txt looks like this: cmdlines.txt [COMMANDS] ".\ie6.bat" ".\register.bat ".\usracnts.bat" ".\parse.bat" ".\runonce.bat" Only glitch is I have to manually reboot the machine after all apps are installed. Have found a reboot.exe file but it does not work with W2K. Open to suggestions... The Old Dude SED.EXE
  12. Aaron, Had a problem finding download file Q816093, Flaw in the Microsoft VM Could Enable System Compromise. As a workaround, I found a way to get the file with a test machine and SP1 installed (to be honest, I stumbled on this by accident). I configured my system to receive automatic updates and lo and behold a critical update started downloading. I quickly did a Windows Update scan and saw it was Q816093. Instead of updating my system at that time (I am using VMWare Workstation 4 with several instances of XP Home and Pro), I decided to delve into the location of the downloaded file. I found it buried in Program Files (a hidden folder called,,,,Windows Update\wuaudnld.tmp\cabs\com_microsoft.Q816093_VM3810_Ver1\msjavwu.exe. Just a tidbit of information should anyone else have problems finding this little guy. I know the Windows Update Catalog with OS Advanced Search did not work for me. The Old Dude
