Windows 2000 is an operating system for use on both client and server computers. It is the successor to Windows NT 4.0, and is the last version of Microsoft Windows to display the "Windows NT" designation. Four editions of Windows 2000 were released (Professional, Server, Advanced Server, and Datacenter Server) that shared a core set of features, including many system utilities such as the Microsoft Management Console. All versions of the operating system support NTFS 3.0, Encrypting File System, as well as basic and dynamic disk storage. The Windows 2000 Server family includes support for Active Directory services, Distributed File System and fault-redundant storage volumes.

I have a commercial .exe file which can communicate and analyze data with my instrument. However, upon running, it says it wants some functions for communicating with the instrument (functions of a driver). I have got .dll folder and library folder which contains these functions.

Customer has a Windows 2000 Advanced Server running some sort of legacy software.  I am working on setting up a more modern replacement but they have a pressing concern that the machine is exactly an hour behind.  I have tried setting it to the correct time manually but it persists in changing back.

I unchecked the option to automatically adjust for Daylight Savings Time, and then changed the time.  It stubbornly switches back in a few seconds.

I tried setting it to SNTP from Apple or pool.ntp.org, but it continues to change back.  When i try to set it to RTSDOMAIN it says the CURRENT TIME and the LOCAL TIME on the controlling server are an hour apart.  I say yes to change to the other server time.... I believe it setting to CURRENT TIME and not LOCAL TIME.

This is apparently causing a serious issue. And i have no idea how to force this server forward an hour.

UPDATE:  I should say that the machine in question is a virtual machine on a Windows Host.  The host is set correctly and working fine.

Hi, I have an application running in windows 2000. I do not have the source code for that..Moreover, it is mandatory for me to run this .exe in windows 2000. I have attached the jpeg file of the gui. This gui consists of different slots where I can manually type voltages.

Coming to my problem,
However, I want this to be automated..I want to type these voltages hundreds of times and very fast. Thus, lets suppose I got these voltages from another program in to a text file.
 After assuming that I have a set of voltages in a text file.. Now i want to access this program, then copy a number from the text file, then paste in the program slot, then a double tab and copy and paste the next voltage. This process needs to be automated.. I have no clue what to do.. I was searching and found bat file or JAVA or .net can be used (just a superficial surfing the internet)... What platform should i choose for this program. Any help is greatly appreciated and acknowledged...Thanking u in advance

I was asked by a potential customer about their HP Designjet 110 Plus printer - it is hooked to an very old Windows 2000 system.  The printer started printing lighter and lighter so the person went out to buy a black ink cartridge as it appears this is all they print in - the color cartridges have been in there since 2007/8 - at least that is what the dates say on them.  Any thoughts on what could be causing the lighter black - I cleaned the printer thoroughly  - there is no software on the system to clean the printheads as I have read in other posts.  Yes the obvious answer is to buy something else but looking for any answers for them on this now.

hi guys,

I've downloaded Vmware Converter 4.0.1 that can support Windows 2000 machines (don't ask, this thing needs to disappear fast from our servers!!). I've installed it on the local machine itself. However, our Vmware environment is Esxi 5.5. So whatever I do, it won't connect from the application to the Vmware infrastructure when I enter the credentials.

Can I export this as a Vmware Server 2.x (the only option for servers given to me) and then load it up on the Vmware Esx 5.5 environment?

Thanks for helping

Hi All,

I am trying to automate a script that I have to run on Windows 2000, XP and 7 (64bit). Currently I am asking for user input by using the case method. I was wondering if it is possible to automate this? I need the script to check what OS version it is and to run that part of the script.

The file structure of what I am installing is the same for Windows 2000 and XP. It is different for Windows 7. Please advice?

Hi

I have a client with a windows 2000 server they can't upgrade.  I need to scan it for malware and haven't been able to find a product to do so.

Can anyone recommend one that'll do the job?  It doesn't necessarily need to be free.

Thanks

I don't have xcopy for Windows 2000.

I want to write a super simple DOS bat file to do this daily:
1) Copy all files in C:/SourceDirectory and in C:/SourceDirectory2 to D:/DestinationDirectory that are created or modified after and including June 1, 2017.
2) Create a copy of  D:/DestinationDirectory and rename it as DestinationDirectory_MMDDYY where MMDDYY is the current month, day and year.

How do I do this?

I would like to create a VM from a Windows 2000 Server that houses an antiquainted application engine that uses Sql Server 2000 as a repository.  The application is necessary to access the first several years of structured information from their business.

What I'm looking for is a way to create a VM of this system and run it in the same Hyper-V environment housing a VM of the client side of this application.  I used DISK2VHD to make the VM of the client side, but needed to upgrade the client from XP to Windows 7 before DISK2VHD would run.  I understand DISK2VHD requires VSS which didn't come into play until xp and Server 2003.

What would recommend as a procedure to follow to accomplish this?

Thanks!

I have a Dell PowerEdge 1750 server, and I replaced the motherboard and one of the three hard drives.  It was working fine for 3 days and then I get a "STOP: 0x0000007B INACCESSIBLE_BOOT_DEVICE" error.

I used the Windows 2000 Advanced Server CD to repair Windows and it automatically ran CHKDSK.  I can boot into Windows now, but it's very slow to open files or folders, and it doesn't open a tiny text file sometimes.

Would there be a record of this in the dmp files?  

Please help!

I have a Dell PowerEdge 1750 and it had an amber light last week.  I am guessing this error is caused by a low CMOS battery, but I'm not sure.  I didn't add any new hardware or software.

"A device driver has corrupted the executive memory pool.  If this is the first time you've this Stop error screen, restart your computer.  If this screen appears again, follow these steps ..."

Please see attached message.

After restarting the computer, Windows boots up again, but it keeps freezing.  Is this a low CMOS battery issue, or something else?

hi,

right now we have a task to relocate SQL 2000 (long time ago, I can't remember how to do it...) from a Windows 2000 server to Windows 2003 server so that we can apply security patch on Windows 2003 for any new virus attack.

anyone still remember how to move system DBs and user DBs from one SQL 2000 to another SQL 2000 ?

We have an old ERP system that has to run on W2K 2000, and clients use terminal services to access it.  I had to reinstall everything, and can't figure out how we got TS Licensing to work before, since we are running Small Business Server 2011 and the terminal server can't be a domain controller.  Also, the W2K terminal server is running on a virtual machine in Hyper-V on a Win 2008 Server.  So the two servers in our domain are SBS2011 and Win 2008, aside from virtual machine.  I was playing around with the TS licensing on Win2K, trying to figure out how we got this to work before, and was able to connect to SBS2011 (it felt like this was what we did before, even though it doesn't make sense).  As you can see in the attached screenshot, it picked up Existing W2K Server TS per device.  When I right-click and select Install Licenses, it tells me the licensing wizard cannot connect to the license server.  But then the activation status changes from unknown to activated.  When I close the TS Licensing window and reopen it, I have to go through the whole process again.  

Has anyone done this before?  Any thoughts?

TIA,
Christina

Windows 2000 Advanced Server won't start up.  Every time I reboot I get this same error message.

Hi.
We have an old Windows 2000 PC and are attempting to virtualize it.
I run VMware's Converter software and it clones the machine onto a network drive without issue.

However, when I try to power it on, I get a BSOD stating:
Error - STOP 0X0000007B
Inaccessible Boot Device


If I do a "repair" of Windows 2000, the system boots up normally but a very critical piece of (old) software no longer works.
For some reason, I think the repair is what's causing this program to no longer work as expected.

So I'm wondering if someone here can help me troubleshoot this issue so I can boot up the VM without needing to do a repair.

Thanks in advance.

When I try to promote a Server 2012 R2 to DC, I get the following error:

Verification of replica failed.  The forest functional level is Windows 2000.  To install a Windows Server 2012 R2 domain controller, the forest functional level must be Windows Server 2003 or higher.

The existing domain is on a Server 2003 for Small Business Server.

I have run Adprep.exe /forestPrep and Adprep.exe /domainPrep /gpPrep successfully.

Active Directory Domains and Trusts indicates the current functional level is Windows Server 2003

Hi All,

I had a windiws 95 hard drive fail last week due to bad sectors.  I was able to recover the data, but the new disk won't boot.  I've got a start up floppy disk which let's me get me to a command prompt.  When I try to run window it says incorrect version of dos.  I guess it's using the version on the floppy disk.

Any idea how I can update it?

Thanks

Running Virtual Box version 4.2.18 r88780 on a computer whose operating system is Windows 7 Pro.
So the host o/s is Windows 7 and the guest o/s is Windows 2000.
Everything has been running well for over 2 years.

The problem:
 The user clicks on the green start arrow.  They briefly see the Windows 2000 professional introduction screen.
  A greenish colored  box appears over the  Windows 2000 professional introduction screen and slowly retreats then nothing happens.  This behavior just started today (April 1)

  The user sees the Windows 2000 startup screen with the rectangle odometer at the bottom.  Usually, the rectangle gets filled with a blue line as the Windows 2000 o/s starts.  But now nothing happens.

This problem just started.  Nothing has been changed on the host operating system.  No new programs have been added.   No drivers have been changed.

I'm not sure if the problem is with Virtual box, the Windows 2000 operating system or something else.

How would you troubleshoot this problem?

In Window Server 2012, I can see a shared folder on a Windows 2000 server, but I need to create a shared folder on Window Server 2012 that can be seen from the Windows 2000 Server.

This shared folder must be secured and only the administrator of Server 2012 and 2000 can see it.  How can I set up this shared folder on Windows Server 2012?

I'm trying to get a Win 2000 DC retired. My network has three servers:1) Windows 2000 DC, 2) Windows 2008 R2 file server (not a DC right now) and 3) a brand new Win 2012 R2 server. My goal is to promote the 2008 server to DC temporarily then get the 2012 server promoted, then toss both old servers into the trash. The problem is that when I do adprep /forestprep on the 2000 server, it does nothing.
 
I looked at ADSI Edit, and there seems to be some servers listed in the OU=Domain Controllers section that no longer exist. I didn't know if this was contributing to my problem and whether or not I should delete the other DCs listed there.

Further info: This network only has about 20 users and two or three shares, which everyone has access to, so I'm not sure whether starting from scratch would be easier than migrating.
