  • Computer in AD

    Hello!

    I have a little problem with my computer at work which connects to AD. After I logon I get a message to enter a Windows XP Proffesional CD to copy some files. I've tried to do that but I get the same message everytime I login.

    I hope you know what I mean and that someone knows how to solve this.


    Thanks!

        Ask your IT guy to copy it from the CD or from another XP PC in the office.

          I have a Windows XP CD and although I insert it and press OK to copy, nothing happens ... the same message appears again later ...

          And my account also has admin rights ...

            IT Administrators usually have more than just admin rights, they have (hopefully) training and experience with issues like this. Either way there are other solutions. Aside from copying from another computer, you could do system restore. Either way it's the job of the IT guy to fix these things. Make them work for their money

              I know what our IT administrators will do ... take my computer and just format and reinstall everything. I can do that myself ... but just don't have the time to do it.

              Argh ...

                Ask a colleague to copy the file from their machine to a share on yours. They will need to use Edit>Copy to do this.

                Open control panel>Fonts then File>Install new font and browse to the shared folder on your PC that contains the font.

                  Where can I find those files? I've tried with search ... no luck. The Show hidden files is ON and Hide protected operating system files is OFF ... still no luck.

                    The file you quote is located in C:\Windows\Fonts. This is where your colleague should look for the file, then copy it to your shared folder.

                    [Edit]
                    Assuming they have the file, that is... You may need to look at more than one machine to find this.

                    However, you really should ask your network admin about this. Installing a font is a simple task.
