    Re: XP sp3 stuck on applying settings

    I didn’t see anything of value in the event log.I tried logging in with my account which has never been logged on that pc and it gets stuck still.I’m thinking its a group policy settings but I can’t figure out which one it is.Is there a good tool that can help me pinpoint the issue?

    Re: help with script

    Thanks for the suggestion, I found a solution last week but your suggestion involves alot less code so I might test your suggestion of powershell.

    Does the installer require interaction?

    If it does not you can simply check to see if a file exists and run the EXE if you cannot find the file.

    Example: (installexe.bat)
    If EXIST c:somefoldersomefile1.exe c:installsomefile2.exe[/CODE]You are looking in the folder the installer creates for the actual filename (somefile1), if it does not find the filename you run the installer (somefile2).

    Some thoughts:
    If this is a Terminal server (farm) or if you need to install to multiple machines of any kind you should place the installer (and the batch file) in a network folder everyone can access and modify the above line to say:

    [CODE]
    If EXIST c:somefoldersomefile1.exe [URL=”file://server1/netshare/somefile2.exe”]\server1netsharesomefile2.exe[/URL]
    [/CODE]Hobie[/QUOTE]

    Yeah the program I’m trying to install is a program that requires interaction.
    Is there a way to automate that?[CODE]If EXIST c:somefoldersomefile1.exe c:installsomefile2.exe[/CODE]You are looking in the folder the installer creates for the actual filename (somefile1), if it does not find the filename you run the installer (somefile2).

    Not where I’m aware of.. however, they will get a message every time they logon and it start about 14 days before the password needs to be changed…

    I was aware of that but I wanted to see if there was a way to have those warnings emailed to the users.The problem is that some of my users travel alot are away from the office for weeks or months at a time and alot of the time their passwords will expire while they are away.We are trying to find a way for them to get an email before the password expires so they know when to change their password.

    I found this earlier and it seems like it might do the job

    Have you tried installing the software as the local administrator itself? I’m guessing this is for an all-in-one HP printer. Some time ago we had a similar situation at work… neither users with administrative rights or IT administrators could have the software installed. We found out to be that the application had to be executed at the local “administrator” account.

    Just to clarify when you say the system is not on the domain, you mean it is not member of any domain? Right! I will also suggest to obtain the software from the vendor’s website. Good luck!

    I tried installing using the local admin account but I get the same error.I tried loading drivers from the hp cd I get the error ,and if I download and install the same drivers I get the error too.

    Re: software installing error

    the computer is windows xp pro service pack 2.The computer is not on a domain so there are no GPOs applied to it.Th error shows the path of the install file and says access denied under the file path.

    I’ve used Mcafee quite a lot of time and it’s a very good Antivirus solution.
    However make sure you keep the AV software at least about 8.0 (patch 13) or higher.
    Combining this with ePO 3.6 or higher will give you a fantastic product.
    I haven’t seen any false positives with Mcafee as look as you configure it correctly. Also I’ve noticed many many times that Mcafee has a faster updating meganism then for example Trend.

    I’ve worked with a Trend Micro gateway scanner (for HTTP/SMTP/FTP) which was configured to pull his updates every 15 minutes. In the back I used Mafee Groupshield for Exchange and when a new urgent virus was released, Mcafee was the first which catches the virus. About 3 hours later Trend took over. Mcafee was configured to update every 3 hours.

    Symantec should be removed as quickly as possible from the market. I think it’s a horrible product.
    Karspersky is also a very good product. And also NOD32 is.
    You say that mcafee is useless but as you could noticed I don’t agree.

    Eventually their aren’t any good or bad AV products. All has their good and their bads except Symantec which has only their bads. It all come down on personal flavor.

    I like mcafee, others like Trend etc.
    In the end this can turn out in a useless discussion.

    We use 8.5 with patch 1.I can see that mcafee seems to be working for you and I’m glad to hear it but for my environment it is letting too much through.I will look into our configuration here and see if it is set too open.Thanks for your help.
