I am configuring a wireless radio for a customer, which I can access just fine on my Win10 laptop, but not on their WinXP computer--and I don't know why.  Here is the setup:

On my Win10 I set static IP info on the network card as 192.168.1.33, and it defaults to the standard mask.  I don't fill in anything for the gateway or DNS because it doesn't need it (for this purpose).  My laptop is not connected to the internet at all at this point.  I can then open IE or Chrome and go to 192.168.1.234 and log into the wireless radio and do all the settings, etc. just fine.

So then I go to the customer WinXP PC, which also has no internet connectivity, and set it's IP info the same way...192.168.1.33 and the default mask, with no gateway or DNS info specified.  But when I open IE 8 (which is the only browser they have) I cannot get to 192.168.1.234.  It just does that screen saying it cannot access it.

Any ideas how to solve this problem?  TIA

This customer has some old Win XP compatible files on his Widows 7 PC that he uses while running Windows XP mode.  Where ARE those files on the PC's C: drive?  I'm trying to restore some of these XP files from an Acronis backup, but I don't know what folders to find them in.  If I search for some of the filenames while on the Win7 C: drive, I can't find them, so I guess they must somehow be hidden.  If I'm in XP Mode I can see them just fine--but where would they be in the directory tree in the Acronis backup?

We have modified a driver with a different PID and need to get it self-signed. Looks simple enough for someone who has done it before but I haven't. Does anyone you know off offer driver signing services?

Here is a link to what the vendors says needs to be done:

I'm sure this probably isn't possibly, but is there a way to map 2 different network drives to the same drive letter?
The only way I can see doing it is to change the drive letter for one of network drives. Suggestions?

I have a Toshiba laptop Satellite S55. Recently the hard drive crashed BIG TIME.  Obviously I'll need to replace it.

I hate to say this, but it seems that I do not have a backup for everything on the drive, just programs and data that I saved to an external hard drive.

The computer came with the Windows 7 built-in, no installation disk.  Is the OS ON the crashed and worthless drive or is it stashed away someplace else on the computer so recovery is possible? There's a permanently attached label on the bottom with a Microsoft product key on it.

Windows XP Display Settings Multi Monitors loses settings during restart.  Is there a setting in the registry that can be modified so that XP retains these settings rather than resetting each day.  Drivers are up to date.

Hi,

I plan moving 2 VMs, one 2003 and one XP (Virtual Machine) to a newer ESXi Host.

Because the HAL will change, I will need to reactive the XP / 2003. I assume we can activate the OS ? Anyone have tried an activation recently ?

I'm aware of all the issues running old OS in the network, but it's for an really old apps, internet is blocked and it's backup properly.

Thanks,

am running a windows xp OS on my Pentium III dell computer. one day I was restoring my other programs to my system that were once deleted. one of the program restored was the avast antivirus which was expired sometime back and it needed to update. however, before updating it, I tried to run it. it started showing that it detects some file as infected and asked to delete, delete all, move to chess, move to chess all, repair, repair all....... Thinking deleting the infected files would be best, I commanded it to delete all. so it deleted a lot of files. at last, I had to reboot the system, and from then when I boot the computer, it only shows me this error message:

 STOP: c0000139 {Entry Point Not Found} The procedure entry point wcsncpy_s could not be located in the dynamic link library ntdll.dll.

Nothing happens apart from restarting itself when I boot it in the safe mode. when boot it in the windows restore directory, it checks the system and gives the results as follows:

System Checking D:
the volume is clean
System Checking C:
the volume is clean

My CD-ROM doesn't work. when I insert a cd, it just runs and finally stops, no reading.

So is there any solution to rectify the problem so that I the system should be finishing booting? Thanks in advance for your help.

All,
Have an XP w/ SP3, working fine for years. Suddenly mouse right click does nothing.
Tried system restore - no luck.
Tried reinstalling driver from CD, wouldn't install - says there's a newer driver installed & exits.
Tried Roll back - says no backup driver found.
Tried Uninstalling driver, then reinstalling - got same error message as above (so I'm guessing it wasn't REALLY removed)?
Bought a replacement mouse - same model - same problem.
Borrowed another brand of mouse, works fine.
Client wants the old style mouse because in has magnify feature built in. Plus he spent $$$ on the new replacement.
Must get the MS mouse working correctly, if at all possible.
So I think it's in the software, but I'm open for any serious suggestions - except for upgrade XP, or use another model mouse.

Thank you,
Russ

Hi Experts,

I've just purchased a Western Digital Elements 2TB portable USB 3.0 hard drive.  It's advertised as being compatible with WinXP and USB 2.0.

When I plug it into my old HP DC7700 SFF desktop PC running WinXP Pro SP3 (front ports, or rear, all of which are USB 2.0), it shows the expected New Hardware messages next to the systray, and finally says it's installed and ready to use, and I can see it in Device Manager, but not in Explorer, so I don't think I can use it on this PC.
Tried using Device Manager to update the driver from WinXP Pro CD and then from the web, but it says something like there was no better driver found, in both cases.

All the same things happen when I connect it to a Dell Latitude D420 laptop, also running WinXP Pro SP3.

But when I try it on an HP laptop which is running Win10 (also USB 2.0 I think), I see no problems there.

Any suggestions of what could be causing this, and how I should resolve it?

Let me know if you want any screen shots or other info.

Thanks.

hi
I have a windows 2003 server as my domain controller with roaming profiles and folder redirection configured. I have had this server for a while now and I have migrated users from windows XP all the way to windows 10. M problem is now am almost out of space on this server but when I check how much data is on the users profile it doesn't correspond to what is on my quota statement, seems to be less than what is on the server. am also constantly seeing cases of "Your roaming profile was not completely synchronized" from a couple of them. how do I solve this?

thanks

One of a set of tools we're offering as a way of saying thank you for being a part of the community.

We are baffled by a situation where two computers are unable to access a website that more than 150 other computers are accessing with a problem. These two computers are behind a common modem and router, but tracert shows the packets make it to the server. Running Wire Shark shows:
wireshark.pngOther websites on a different server (and ip) behind the same firewall are accessible from the same two computers behind the same router and modem.

To try to clear up the situation....
Two computers (running POS Ready 2009) at location A are unable to display a website on server A (running Server 2003). This is true whether using the domain or the IP Address for the server.  These same two computers are able to access a website on the Server B (running Server 2003) which is behind the same firewall as Server A.
Other computers are able to display the same website on Server A from multiple other locations with no problems.

Sort through files and only retrieve current date.

I have a batch file that I wrote to retrieve log files from workstations.  In some cases, I only need to run this for the current date only, my batch file does not appear to be working and still grabbing everything.

I have the source and target correct as when I run it without the code above it, it grabs everything.

@ECHO Computer Logs Current Date

pause

For /f "tokens=1-3 delims=/ " %%a in ('date /t') do (set currentDate=%%a-%%b-%%c)

For /f "tokens=1-3 delims=/: " %%a in ('time /t') do (set currentTime=%%a%%b%%c)

echo %currentDate%-%currentTime%
set todaysLogs=%currentDate%--%currentTime%

xcopy /y \\Computer name\path\file.txt "C:\Users\me\Desktop\ComputerLogsMS2\Computer name"
