Hello, I've recently installed 1-year-worth of Win7 Security-Only patches (due to the new Spectre exploits, mostly). It all went well, except for these things: 1- various programs set to run at Window’s start in the registry.. don’t seem to do it anymore. I’ve already tried to reset the startup option inside their settings, but nothing changed. Their keys are correctly present in the registry inside the \Run sections, as before the update. I’ve also noticed this new error in Eventviewer (related?): EventID 1530 1 user registry handles leaked from \Registry\User\[code here]: Process 936 (\Device\HarddiskVolume5\Windows\System32\winlogon.exe) has opened key \REGISTRY\USER\[code here] Error 1530 can happen at shutdown and it's usually a semi-harmless event ("by design"), but.. it's weird that I'm getting it at logon now. 2- some programs’ windows positions and sizes aren’t saved when I close and reopen them. I wonder if this is also caused by the event mentioned above. 3- I noticed another minor but annoying change about symbolic links. When traversing folders in the Navigation pane, now Windows Explorer always jumps to their original path (like a normal link), instead of remaining in its current tree structure. -- Has anyone experienced these issues too? Or have a clue on how to fix these? I already tried running sfc /scannow, but it didn’t find any integrity violation.
Starting with a brand new ISO: Windows Server 2012 R2 RTM Datacenter/Standard ISO My default ISO tool is 7Zip, easy, simple, my standard default app. But it doesn't read UTF. I see the following when I open it: [bOOT] - Folder README.TXT - File The readme says: "This disc contains a "UDF" file system and requires an operating system that supports the ISO-13346 "UDF" file system specification." So we tried a native 2012 install to mount the ISO. But that could see the files, but not copy them all. Then I tried Virtual CloneDrive. This way I can mount the ISO under Win7. Here is where I get different errors based on the tools used. 'E:' drive is the ISO mounted through Virtual CloneDrive 'D:' drive is a NTFS partition First command to test directory creation. xcopy E:\* D:\DVD\* /E /V /F /G /H /Y /T creates all 871 directories (correct amount) Second command to copy the files. xcopy E:\* D:\DVD\* /E /V /F /G /H /Y Gets down to this file: E:\efi\microsoft\boot\resources\bootres.dll Error: The target volume does not support symbolic links Add the option /B - "Copies the Symbolic Link itself versus the target of the link." xcopy E:\* D:\DVD\* /E /V /F /G /H /Y /B Gets down to this file: E:\efi\microsoft\boot\resources\bootres.dll Error: The target volume does not support symbolic links Add the option /J - "Copies using unbuffered I/O. Recommended for very large files." xcopy E:\* D:\DVD\* /E /V /F /G /H /Y /J Gets down to this file: E:\efi\microsoft\boot\resources\bootres.dll Error: The target volume does not support symbolic links Next tool to test was TeraCopy Running a copy of everything in the ISO, minus the 'sources' folder, yields 145 files and 18 folders copied to D:\DVD\, and the mounted ISO has 160 files and 18 folders. Tracking down these files gives this list: 1 - e:\efi\microsoft\boot\resources\bootres.dll 2 - e:\support\adfs\en-us\migrate-federationconfiguration.psd1 3 - e:\support\adprep\en-us\adprep.dll.mui 4 - e:\support\adprep\en-us\csvde.dll.mui 5 - e:\support\adprep\en-us\ldifde.dll.mui 6 - e:\support\logging\en-us\actionqueueetw.dll.mui 7 - e:\support\logging\en-us\auditetw.dll.mui 8 - e:\support\logging\en-us\cmisetupetw.dll.mui 9 - e:\support\logging\en-us\oobeldretw.dll.mui 10 - e:\support\logging\en-us\setupcletw.dll.mui 11 - e:\support\logging\en-us\setupetw.dll.mui 12 - e:\support\logging\en-us\setupugcetw.dll.mui 13 - e:\support\logging\en-us\sysprepetw.dll.mui 14 - e:\support\logging\en-us\windeployetw.dll.mui 15 - e:\support\logging\en-us\winsetupetw.dll.mui xcopy E:\Sources\* D:\DVD\Sources\* /E /V /F /G /H /Y Gets down to this file: E:\Sources\dlmanifests\microsoft-windows-storagemigration\en-us\stormigplugin.dll.mui Error: The target volume does not support symbolic links Then tried using TeraCopy and got lots of errors on multiple .mui and .dll files Error: Read Error: Incorrect function. Does anyone have any other ideas for extracting these files cleanly?
