Preferred Solution: Windows XP Patch: .NET Server adminpak.msi may not run on Windows XP Machines: Dec 18

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

Hi,

I do intensive 2d/3d design on 3-4 computers running windows 7 64 bit. I presently have a 'server' which holds all the data, Windows XP 32bit. I am dealing with large files (300mb+) and saving/opening times are too long, so I want to re-configure the server so that it is faster.

The priorities with the server are fast file sharing, and being able to run the printers would be a bonus, but not a requirement.

I am not familiar with operating systems other than Windows and Mac OS, but I do have programming experience and am willing to get my hands dirty.

I am not willing to fork out ?500+ for Windows server, though.

There is no tight deadline on this, so I have time to figure it out properly.

Which would the best server OS be for this? (I know this is a 'how long is a piece of string' question, but I have to start somewhere )

Any help, advice or comments would be very much appreciated.

Cheers,

Hi Casputin,

Do you have 100mbit or gigabit network?

If you don't have gigabit, you might consider that.
A lot cheaper than changing the os, which will bring you little performance gain anyhow.

Also setting up raid on your server in combination with gigabit network, can improve your transfer more than any OS could.

The Telnet protocol provides remote shell capabilities. Microsoft has
implemented the Telnet protocol by providing a Telnet Server in
several products. The implementations in two of these products
- - - Windows 2000 and Interix 2.2 - contain unchecked buffers in the
code that handles the processing of telnet protocol options.

An attacker could use this vulnerability to perform a buffer
overflow attack. A successful attack could cause the Telnet Server
to fail, or in some cases, could possibly allow an attacker to
execute code of her choice on the system. Such code would execute
using the security context of the Telnet service, but this context
varies from product to product. In Windows 2000, the Telnet service
always runs as System; in the Interix implementation, the
administrator selects the security context in which to run as part
of the installation process.
Affected Software:

Telnet Service in Microsoft Windows 2000
Telnet Daemon in Microsoft Interix 2.2

Ok, I just started a new job and their domain is kind of screwy. They have a number of Windows 2000 machines running on a Windows 2003 AD domain. I am trying to get the AD integration for PC Duo running on this domain, but I am running into a problem. The machine I am using to test with, as well as every other Windows XP SP2 box, is missing from "My Network Places", which is what PC Duo uses to distribute clients remotely. I see all the Windows 2000 boxes fine. I found what could have been a viable solution, where I enabled File and Print Sharing in our Windows Firewall GPO, but all that did was give me every friggin domain in existence on the network, which totals well over 100. And I still couldn't see Windows XP boxes, which didn't help my problem anyway. Any thoughts on this? Where should I look?
 

A:Solved: Windows 2003 Cannot See Windows XP Machines in My Network Places?

Ok, it took me hours and hours of searching, but I found the problem.

Apparently, XP SP2 disables some services required by My Network Places to see and browse machines on a domain. These services are:
Workstation (needed to see computers in My Network Places)
Server (Needed to start Computer Browser)
Computer Browser (needed to browse computers in My Network Places)

Now, you don't NEED these services to run, and it's somewhat of a security hole to have them running all over your network, but they are required to run to both see and browse computers through My Network Places.

 Hi,
Something is going on with Windows update and new/restored 7 machines. Been going on pretty much all year so far and has been noticed by a great many other technicians besides me.  Windows 7 has seamed to taken the hit hard. With machines I have built
and restored for customers over these past few years. I know how long the update process approximately took with in an hour or 2. but the same machines are now running into days. Something is not right and needs to be investigated by Microsoft to locate the
problem unless it is being done intentionally for some reason. ??? Windows 8 and 10 machines don't seam to have as much problem 8 more than 10 but 7 never used too.

This involves too many different manufactures machines and clean installs of 7 SP1 for this to be a OS install problem. Not when doing the same machine with in less than 2 years and I could turn the machine over and have it ready to return to work in
a day. Not with the current problem with the update system for 7 OS anyway. I have read where this problem has been very frustrating for other techs.

I have tried a number of the so called KB fixes for this and they pretty much do not correct the problem, I believe it is with the update system and older OS's.

Hello,

I am having a bit of trouble networking my computers.

I used to have just 2 computers connected via a router/dsl modem. These are both on windows xp pro. It all worked good, and still does.

I then added a windows 2000 machine to it, and cannot get it to see the other computers. It is on the same name "mshome" and the other 2 xp machines can see the windows 2000 one through my network places, but trying to access it gives me:
\\win2000 is not accessible. You might not have permission to use this network resource. Contact the administrator of this server to find out if you have access permissions.

The network path was not found.

I havn't a clue how to fix this.

I have a vnc server set up on the windows 2000 machine, as trying to use microsofts remote desktop just didn't work, probably due to this too.

I can connect the the vnc server fine, but I just cannot access the server via windows explorer to get files from it.

I also have put passwords on the 2 xp machines (after trying for a long time getting those to see each other a few months back) and have tried the windows 2000 machine both with, and without passwords. It is currently on automatic login via TweakUI.

If anybody can help i would be very very appreciative.

Hello,
I created the following performance counter using logman.exe. 

logman.exe create counter US_Triton_Perf_Log -b 9/23/2015 09:30:00 -e 9/30/2099 18:30:00 -r -s $server -si $frequence -cf $folder\$server.txt -f $logtype  -o C:\local\logs\Perfout_$Server --a -v mmddhhmm  -rf  $max_duration

When I do this across multiple servers specifically for Windows Servers 2008/2012, the counter is created to repeat and run everyday at 930PM and stops running everyday at 430PM. This works perfectly fine as intended. However, When I do this for a Windows
2003 server, my created counter is very different.
For example, in this case, I have set to the counters to start at 930AM and end at 1830PM, because I have set a maximum duration of 9 hours, the job terminates and begins on the next day, since I have the repeat option on. However, this does not apply to
our 2003 server; logman creates the job to run once a week in this case it would be on a Wednesday. In addiiton, I noticed that the job doesn't not even start at it's indented time. It actually does not start at all. I also notice that the jobs on all windows
2003 servers are created in a pending status, which then prevents me from removing the counter remotely. 

I would like to know if windows 2003 is capable of working like my win 2008/2012 servers using logman, and if historically, the job has to be kicked off through scheduled task.

Microsoft Re-Issues Windows 7 Patch Preparing Windows 10 Upgrade

Microsoft has re-published a Windows 7 and 8.1 update that in the past has been associated with the company?s aggressive Windows 10 push, this time trying to focus on providing users with a smooth transition to the new operating system.

KB3150513 is an update shipped to systems running Windows 7, 8.1, and Windows 10 versions prior to 1703, and its purpose is to prepare the computer for the upgrade to Windows 10.

On April 21, Microsoft rolled out the 10th revision to the update, so users who are yet to upgrade to Windows 10 are once again being re-offered the patch.

Smooth upgrade to Windows 10 Creators Update
With the Windows 10 Creators Update now available for download, it more or less makes sense for Microsoft to provide a new compatibility patch to users, especially because a smooth upgrade is needed for those making the move from Windows 7 and 8.1, but also from Windows 10 TH1 or the Anniversary Update.

?This update provides the latest set of definitions for compatibility diagnostics that are performed on the system. The updated definitions will help enable Microsoft and its partners to ensure compatibility for all customers who want to install the latest Windows operating system,? Microsoft explains in the KB page.

FInally my Win XP computer crashed totally and I now use my Vista computer full time at work! Although it gave me some problems.

Adminpak. I rather have it installed on my actual computer than accessing it by RD. Anyone yet got it to work? I get an error that says could not create MMC snap in. And Microsoft KB does not help me out.

Drivers for older printers - I would love to print.... but none of the claimed "x64 drivers" work. Yes, I?ve installed them correctly
(I hope )

I searched the forum for an answer but couldn?t find anything so I hope I didnt doublepost. I also searched google and noone seem to get a real grip of the problem.

Thanks in advance

Rebecca

A:Adminpak for Vista, anyone who got it to work yet?

I've got it working.

What you need to do is install the windows server 2003 adminpak.msi.
Then open the attached zip, and run the batch file to fix it.

So extract the file to desktop, right click, and select to 'Run as Administrator'.
This will register all the needed dll's with the elevated privileges needed to register them succesfully.

This then should let you access all of the admin tools and run them as you wish!!!

We have a small network with one NT server and about 16 workstations. Four of the workstations are running Windows 98. Win98 workstations can see the NT server but cannot see all the folders they have rights to. If the user logs onto the server from a NT workstation or an XP workstation, all folders (that they have rights to) are seen.
Has anyone had this problem before? Any suggestions to solve it?
Thanks for any assistance.

I have two almost identical machines, one desktop and one laptop, both bought and installed at the same time, both running XP Pro and Office 2007, both connected to the same Comcast router and cable Internet.
 
This afternoon, the desktop could not connect to the network. Outlook cannot retrieve email and none of the browsers (Firefox, Explorer, or Chrome) can access google.com or amazon.com. The laptop is not having any problems at all.
 
I have rebooted the cable router and the computer 2-3 times. I have checked all of the cat5 cables. The cat5 connection on the back of the computer shows a flickering light as always. If I unplug the cat5 cable from the router, I get an error message on the computer saying that the local area network cable is unplugged. When I plug it back in, it says the local area net is connected at 100.0 MPS, just as on the laptop, which is connected to the same router.
 
I ran the Explorer diagnostics. It reports a number of errors that I do not understand and it recommends that I contact my ISP. But I find that hard to believe since the laptop is working just fine.
 
I'd be happy to upload the Explorer diagnostic report if there is a safe place to do that. I don't know if it has any personal information or any information that a hacker could make use of.
 
Thanks
 
 

A:Server not found on only 1 of 2 machines

While waiting on hold for Comcast, I tried swapping the cat5 cable to another modem port. No difference. Then I got a different cat5 cable and first connected it to the laptop. It worked just fine. Then I connected that same cat5 cable from the same modem port to the desktop. No joy. So it looks to me like the failure is in the connector (port) on the back of the desktop.
 
Now what? I do have WiFi. Can I get a USB WiFi receiver for that old computer? Any other solution? Call Dell?

Hello,

I have a problem to access file server on Windows Server 2000 from a Windows 7 PC. For your information, due to some reasons, both Windows 7 and Windows Server 2000 are in different domain.

I have tried all suggested solutions which are :
i. to unchecked both attributes in 'Network Security : Minimum session security for NTLM SSP based (including secure RPC)' for both clients and server.
ii. to apply 'Send LM & NTLM - use NTLMv2 session security if negotiated' in 'Network Security : LAN Manager authentication level'
iii. to make sure the time setting for both Windows 7 and Windows Server 2000 are the same.

But still, i couldn't access the file server. In fact, each time I entered domain\username to authenticate, it will give out this message :



Since I am kinda new to this troubleshooting things, it would be great if someone can tell me why does this happening. Is it because of the different domain?

thanks in advance.

A:Windows 7 unable to Access file server on Windows Server 2000

To connect to the server you would need to enter the credentials of the domain user on the server that would have access. For example if the domain was 'home' with a user 'Josh' then I would put:

home\Josh

As the username. If you want to get advanced you could try and form a trust with the other domain in active directory so that the other domain has permission to access the server

I have a file server at home with a Quad core, 4gb ram, and a 3tb of storage. It is running Ubuntu Desktop and sharing video files primarily. From my school I have access to a free copy of Windows Server 2008 R2. Other than the server I have 2 Windows 7 desktops, 1 Windows 7 laptop and 1 Windows Vista laptop.

I am interested in moving to a Windows setup as I am done with the ?Ubuntu? experiment. WHS looks like what I need, but I have a free copy of WS 2008 and I would miss the $50 for WHS. My goals can be described best as:

Need to Haves:
? File/media server (local network)
? Dedicated game server for various games for friends.
? Print server

Nice to Haves:
? Music/Video Streaming over the internet
? Automatic backup server
? File server over the internet
? Ability to manager other PC?s from the server

My ability as an admin:
? No experience
? Willing to learn and put forth initial effort to get setup
? Don?t have time to really spend more than 1 day moving from Ubuntu to the new setup.
? Don?t want to be stuck constantly screwing with things to get it right or keep it running.

What is going to be best option for my situation?

A:Help choose: Windows Home Server 2011 vs. Windows Server 2008 R2

Honestly, I use both in their proper settings, and unless you have a domain at home with multiple users, Windows Server 2008 R2 is overkill...and would require much more tweaking and add-in apps to do what you want. Given your write-up, WHS 2011 is the way to go. It does much of what you want out of the box, and is designed for people who don't want to become server admins (or at least not be forced to).

Windows Updates have been a real thorn in my side since moving to the country where I have limited bandwidth ISP. I have 6-7 Windows PCs I (try to) keep updated, both XP and W7. I've tried downloading updates just ONCE using the Microsoft Update Catalog, but then I still have to note what pc needs what updates and install them manually.

Newegg's sale on Windows Home Server today has me wondering whether I might dedicate a PC to WSUS just to manage updates.

Can folks here with WSUS experience suggest whether this is worth doing? Or might be more trouble than it's worth vs. the manual "Update Catalog" method? Or tried w/WHS and that's a problem in itself? TIA for any feedback...

A:Windows Server Update Services and Windows Home Server -- worth doing?

I manage the WSUS implementation where I work. Overall, it's a pretty straightforward product. The only hassle will be going through the list of "all updates" for Windows 7 and for XP and declining the ones that don't pertain to your systems. The good news is that WSUS will determine for you, which are needed and which aren't and will place an icon next to the ones which you need.

I don't have experience with running WSUS on WHS myself....but I'm guessing it would be pretty much the same as doing it on a straight up Windows server.

As far as getting the clients to use your WSUS server, that's a simply registry change.

Hello,
I have a question.
This network has Windows 2008 Server with Acronis Back for Windows Server. Along with 9 Windows 7 Professional machines on the domain that access the active server directory and the mainframe files that all 9 access and work on excel files.
My question is this.
Is there some way I can select to backup the PST Outlook 2013 file or folder containing it and My Documents folder from each of the 9 machines? Is it possible to do it incrementally after the initial backup is done?
Or Is there a way to say, set the Outlook folder that contains the pst file as a shared folder on the network, then somehow have that backup to a folder on the server each night?

You could start with giving us the necessary info, like is he going to run a domain with AD or will this be a workgroup setup? Is the server's only role going to be a file server? If so, there may be better options than a 2003 Server. Are the computers all local to the server?

Hi;

It appears that NT 4.0 is kicking off various machines running Windows XP from the network, and won't allow users to access files on the server or other computers on the local network. I have fiddled with their accounts a couple of times (checking user logon names, permissions, etc) and without actually changing things have found the network to reappear on these machines. Without doing that every single time (which is every couple of days now), is there a way to make XP and NT interact a little better?

Thanks,
Danielle

We had the same problem with XP workstations connecting to win2k servers. I found an article on techrepublic.com which helped quite a bit. Here is their blurb & link:

SOLVE WINXP NETWORK COMMUNICATION PROBLEMS WITH THESE TIPS
After installing Windows XP Service Pack 1, you may experience problems
when communicating with Windows 2000 servers. Find out how to resolve
these issues by editing the Windows registry and policy settings, and
then join this article's discussion.

also at:
http://www.techrepublic.com/article.jhtml?id=r00320030121pos01.htm&fromtm=e103-3&_requestid=152075

The article didn't address everything we saw. We also had to upgrade the drivers for our 3com firewall NIC's as well as turn off caching on fileshares in Active Directory. Turning off caching was the big one. Then workstations which had connected using caching had a little caching icon appear in the taskbar, which said "working offline" and the name of the server they couldn't connect to. We had to right-click that, get settings & disable to option to work offline via caching. Then everything was fine.

Hope that helps.
I know you have NT4 & not windows 2k, but they're similar enough that I figured a recitation of what we had to do might still apply.

Hello All,
I have three PCs on a network. The first is a laptop running windows XP, the second is a laptop running windows 7, and the third is a desktop running windows XP. After a lot of work I, and quite a bit of post reading, I was finally able to get the Laptop running Windows 7 to recognize and share files with the desktop running Windows XP, but I can not get it to recognize the laptop running windows XP. All of the workgroups are set to "MSHOME" and I have changed the advanced settings on the Windows 7 machine to allow for better file sharing and network discovery. Please see my short description below of which PCs can see which.


Laptop with XP - Recognizes and can open shared files from both the Desktop with XP and the Laptop with Windows 7

Desktop with XP - Recognizes and can open shared files from both the Laptop with XP and the Laptop with Windows 7

Laptop with Windows 7 - Can only open shared files from the Desktop with XP. It can not recognize the Laptop with XP.

I have tried 'ping'-ing the Laptop with XP from the Laptop with Windows 7 using both the Computer Name and the IP address (at least I think it was the IP address... truth be told I'm not sure I used the right set of numbers...)

Any help anyone could offer would be very much appreciated.

I have a Win7 machine (64bit Ultimate) I'm using as a file server... but only other Windows 7 machines can connect to it, NOTHING else can.

I'm at a dead end here, I've tried reinstalling formating everything and it's still the same. I've tried disabling the firewall and it still can't connect. I've also tried setting the power settings to never turn off, but it's still not working. Tried changing the advanced sharing settings to using lowe encryption and turned off password sharing and nothing.

My Macbook can't connect to it at all, but when I run bootcamp into Win7, it can connect to it fine. Even my Nexus 7 can't connect to it...

NOTHING is working and I've tried everything I can think of.

This machine is used for media sharing as well, so I can't run WHS on it. It needs iTunes and some other UPnP programs that just don't run on WHS.

Oh and if I run remote desktop from the Macbook, it connects fine... It's just when I try to connect to the server it just can't.

Only work around I've gotten is to restart the machine...
