I won't speak to WHEN it will happen, since the date has fluctuated...but to answer your questions and help make this question a canonical for this topic that is sure to pop up a lot... So I assume that means there will be windows update patches available until that date? MS will continue to release new patches/updates for XP until that date. ...

You should be using NTFS, unless you have a good reason not, such as a very old legacy application not supporting NTFS. You can have a look at a feature set comparison here, but basically, NTFS has more features (including native file security options that FAT lacks), and there's just no reason to pick FAT over NTFS for an internal disk unless you have to. ...

Start - Run - CMD - GPRESULT /r is sufficient -> you don't need to display the full "/v" to visualize group belongings as a client-user as far as AD is concerned (under Windows 7 for sure, but I'm not sure about winxp)

Basically, you need to do two things in a situation like this. First, you need to take a backup. Do this before you do anything. If you can't get approved to buy a proper backup suite, at least download NT backup. And once you've taken your backup, remember, it's not a real backup until you've successfully tested a restore. This will give you a safty ...

Take a look at WANem - The Wide Area Network emulator. You can set it up as a VM with a bootable CD-rom drive. Once booted, the web interface will let you use it as a proxy to slow down connections, drop packets, induce jitter, latency, and a number of other cool tricks.

Windows 7/Server 2008 R2 are the first Windows versions to come with PowerShell installed, by default. Windows PowerShell 2.0 needs to be installed on Windows Server 2008 and Windows Vista only. It is already installed on Windows Server 2008 R2 and Windows 7. Ignoring the horribleness of installing XP SP2 in this day and age, if not having PowerShell ...

There is no .NET 4.5 requirement for SQL Server 2008. SQL Server 2008 pre-dates .NET 4.5 by quite a few years. Additionally, I have many SQL Server 2008 R2 installations that do not have this requirement. I suspect you are not actually installing SQL Server 2008. Where did you get the installers from? What was their download links? The correct download link ...

You don't give out too many useful information about what Operating System you are using, but these procedures will be similar for Vista/7/8/8.1: To find out what groups you are a member of: Log on to your virtual machine (assuming it is joined to the domain) with your AD user account Open up a Command Prompt Type in whoami /groups and hit enter The ...

This is likely down to ATA / AHCI support. On the baremetal computer you're attempting to install, open the bios settings dialog and check to see if you can reconfigure SATA to be ATA instead of AHCI. XP did not ship with AHCI support, nearly every modern computer comes with this feature and the option is generally enabled.

I'm fairly certain that an NTBACKUP from Windows XP isn't compatible with Windows 7. You probably need the Windows NT Backup Restore Utility for Windows 7 and for Windows Server 2008 R2. The utility restores backups that are made on Windows XP and on Windows Server 2003 to computers that are running Windows 7 and Windows Server 2008 R2.

Please go to the httpd.conf and change Listen 80 to Listen 8080 or any port. Remember to allow that port through firewall and you have restart the Apache service not the system.

For anyone who likes to know how to do this in Windows 7 (like me): Open Local Security Policy (can be found by pressing the Windows key once and typing "Local Security Policy") => Advanced Audit Policy Configuration => ... => Logon/Logoff => Audit Other Logon/Logoff Events => double click and mark all the check boxes => save Screenshot: Audit Other ...

The easiest approach to this is to include a RunOnce task or script to simply delete those favorites from their location in the filesystem under Documents and Settings (after syspreping, of course). The next easiest approach is to use a Group Policy to strip them (what we do, for the record). If neither of those is appropriate or workable, the easiest ...

You only need to use Vmware Converter (http://www.vmware.com/products/converter/) to create an image so you can use it on other Vmware Platforms (vSphere, Workstation,...). There are a lot of guides on the net about how to use the software. This one may help you: ...

Make sure the file is not being previewed by Windows Explorer. A file in the Preview Pane of Windows will lock a file and mark it as in use.

I think that you could try downloading an offline installer from the links provided here: http://appsonpc.com/download-ie8-offline-installer-windows-xp Since they link to microsoft.com, I presume that they are safe to install. As safe as IE8 is, anyway ;-) Good luck!

The clock on the Windows XP computer was out of sync with the domain controller clock, after running NET TIME \\MyDomainControllerComputerName /SET /Y from the command prompt on the Windows XP computer, I was able to locate the computer by name in Windows Explorer.

As both Michael Hampton and Journeyman Geek mentioned in comments (I would have been happy to upvote and accept either as a answer), Windows Update still works on XP, and automatically updates IE to version 8. I tried this and it worked. However, Windows Update is not necessarily in the Start menu. You can reliably get to the Windows Update page by going ...

PowerShell is not installed with Windows XP. You have to manually install it afterwards.

Try executing the following command mount 192.168.0.1://home/files Z: This should work for you. If you want to mount the root folder, then execute the command mount 192.168.0.1:/! Z: PS: As for why this works, have no idea, I am a total NFS noob... If anyone knows please share it in the comments.

Check the vmware syslog, an easy way is move the /scratch/log in advanced configuration to a datastore then download the syslog using the file manager in vsphere. Can also use the syslog collector http://blogs.vmware.com/vsphere/2011/07/setting-up-the-esxi-syslog-collector.html If you have guest specific problems and the hosts are fine, then it points ...

You should employ Group Policy to be able to control and secure your schools computers. As for them logging into RDP on the Server 2012, can you not just publish the software as a RemoteApp? If they don't need a full desktop and they can open their files from the software, I think this would be a better solution. ...

Rather than trying to mess with the domain GPO for local users (which will never work), setup a local security policy with the items you want, then duplicate it to the other computers.

Recovery is easy - just use a disk imaging tool with a live medium and recover the backup file to the system. Running the system of the backup disk will be more difficult, but you really don't want to do this anyway - this is a backup medium, not meant for running live. Also: Windows XP as in the product out of support?

Use Windows Firewall to accomplish this. Block all traffic except for what you need for the scanning functions. If you're just looking to block web access, block incoming/outgoing 80/443 traffic. This has a side effect of making Windows Updates not work, but since XP is out of support anyway that doesn't matter anymore.

Just some further information, many vendors only provide support for their products when they are used in a supported environment. For example JoeAccounting is the software your accounting department uses on their Windows XP computers. Say something happens and you have to re-install JoeAccounting on their computers, but you run into an issue. Right now you ...

If you are using the windows7 PC by default the anonymous samba user is disabled. So to mount the local windows shared folder onto the QNX(any linux based systems) system you need to change the two registry key values from the below path HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE->SYSTEM->CurrentControlSet->Control->Lsa Highlight the Lsa. On the right side you can see the ...

The reason was because of network security policy in the standard vswitches. To make it simple, the each ESXi host has multiple VMs each having its own IP address + the IP of the ESXi itself. This means many MAC addresses. Now this ESXi is a VM itself in .52 host with its single VM assigned to a certain group. The group will not allow more than 1 MAC to ...

Windows XP doesn't respond to ping due to default firewall rules. This is expected behavior. If you want ping replies you need to change the ICMP section of your network adapter / firewall (depending on XP SP) to allow "Incoming echo requests". See http://csg.trinhall.cam.ac.uk/tips/firewall/winxp as just one example on how to do that.

This is a bit late but We had a similar issue where it was taking about 10 minutes to log in. if the network cable was unplugged and the PC rebooted then it logged in right away. In the end we found it was a printer driver trying to be installed and needed user input that wasn't possible because they were not logged in yet. try turning on Verbose ...
