Hi,

I am running a fairly large network with NT servers as main OS on the Servers.
Both the PDC and the BDCs are running NT.

To make user management easy for me, I just placed a shortcut to this application on my desktop. This has worked fine on my XP desktop until I installed SP2 for Windows XP. Since then, I can open the application, but everytime I try to check a user I get the following error message:

The following error occured accessing the properties of the user XXXXX.

The specified procedure could not be found

The user properties can not be edited or viewed at this time.

It does not matter if I have the firewall on or off, I still get the same error message.

Does anyone know what might cause this ? How to fix it ? This saves a lot of time for me, so I would like to be able to do this in the future as well. I just hope that I wont have to uninstall SP2 to do so.

Regards
Per

Right click on the shortcut and choose properties.
Choose the compatibility tab and choose 'Windows NT'. Click OK to close the Window and try again...

Hey,

Thanks for the help!

I noticed that I have been using a shortcut to this file on the server. This apparently does not work anymore. What you can do is to just copy the file to your local machine, and then run it from there. Works like a charm.

I noticed this by doing as you said Cyber-Dude, but I noticed that since I was checking a shortcut to a network resource, I could not do the change that you suggest. So the only thing left was to try what I suggested above, and it worked.

Points goes to you since you helped me find this out anyway :)

Cheers
