  • 2. .NET 1.1 SP1 locks the machine after install and reboot.
    Hello all, Have a wierd one..... Building a new system Pent D 930 with an ASUS P5N32-SLI MB with2 GB of RAM. Installed .NET framework 1.1, and all the other updates just fine, but after installing .net framework 1.1 SP!, the system boots to the splashscreen but hangs. Running with the /SOS option gets to a blue Windows screeen talking about multicore kernel. Any thoughts? Laszlo
  • 3. How to disable automatic lock / log-out
    Hello, After countless hours searching online and into the depths of Vista, I've nearly given up. I cannot figure out how to disable the occurrence of Windows Vista Beta 2 automatically locking the computer after 10 minutes of inactivity. I've completely disabled any sleep features, and the option "require password after recovery from sleep", and nothing seems to do it. In the process I've basically disabled every security feature present in this new OS, just out of shear desperation. I display presentations that may not have keyboard / mouse input for two hours, but the monitor is still being viewed. I do not want the automatic log-out to occur at all. I hope I've just overlooked some very simple adjustment, because I really love Vista otherwise, despite its current kinks. Sincerely, William C P.S. A big fat thanks to anyone in advance who can answer my question. :)

XP x64 lifecycle tied to XP or Windows Server?

Is the XP Pro x64 support lifecycle tied to that of XP or to Windows
Server 2003?

I'm wondering whether the two-year mainstream support clock starts
at the end of the month (when Vista replaces XP) or when Windows
Server Longhorn comes out.

We'll have to wait for an official report, but I would expect the answer to 
be tied to Vista.

The XP Pro x64 Lifecycle info is at:
 http://www.**--****.com/ +Professional+x64&x=6&y=12

"Mainstream support will end two years after the next version of this 
product is released. Extended support will end five years after mainstream 
support ends."

That translates to two years after Jan 30, 2007.

For all lifecycle info, navigate to microsoft.com and search on "lifecycle."

All there is to go by is the lifecycle page.  The fact that XP Pro x64 
shares the WS 2003 codebase just ties it to WS 2003 for service packs and 

Vista x64 is the release that supercedes XP Pro x64 so that happens this 
month.  Longhorn Server will supercede Server 2003 in the second half of 
2007 assuming it releases as scheduled so the lifecycles of XP Pro x64 and 
Server 2003 will not coincide.

There isn't even information about how long XP Pro x64 remains available to 
OEM's but I assume no longer than one year from now.

1.Using Windows XP x64 Drivers with Windows Server 2003 x64

Can anyone out there tell me if the Windows XP x64 dfrivers will work on 
Windows Server 2003 x64? I want to load a x64 windows OS so that it can host 
Virtual Server 2005 R2 . I want to use Windows Server 2003 x64 but my 
motherboard (Intel D955XBKLKR 955XE with Intel 830 dual-core processor) only 
has all the Windows XP x64 drivers. Has anyone installed Windows Server 2003 
on this motherboard? Your assistance is very much appreciated. Thanks...

3.Windows Server 2003 X64 RC2 or SImply XP Professional X64 Edition

I built a new Xeon 64 bit system and I am planning to dual Boot it with Xp 
Professional 32 bit.

The main use of my computer is for Music Applications such as Cakewalk Sonar 
4.03 (5.0 soon to be released) and many 32 samples which I plan to run on the 
X64 system in wow64

Are there any benefits in installing Windows Server 2003 X64 RC2 instead of 
simply the XP Professional X64 Edition RC2?

Any insight would be appreciated


4.Windows XP can't see Windows Server 2003 x64

We can see out to any computer on the network from the server but they can't 
see the server...we aren't running a domain with Windows XP Pro (one Windows 
2000 system) but we are using a workgroup.  There are 8 computers on the 10 

Everything was working well until we restarted the server after installing 
an HP Laser printer.  Something must have been changed befoe the restart but 
we can't track it down. We are getting an Internet connection and there are 
two LAN cards in the server...we run both cables to a managed router and that 
router gets the internet from a Linksys VPN router.

We can ping any computer on the network from the server (obviously since we 
an access their files) but we can't ping the server from the computers.

Something else that is weird...we went to change the TCP/IP settings on the 
server a couple of times and it turned the server off.

All of the service packs are installed and we are not running anything on 
the server that didn't come on the WS2003 CD (we uninstalled the printer).

The server is a custom dual Xeon x64 with 4GB RAM and the RAID has been 
turned off but it still has four 250GB HDDs. (2 SATA and to IDE (or EIDE or 
whatever the newest is).  It has ran really well for about a year now.  We 
are faily certain this is a software error.

Any ideas?
