  • 1. Media Player codecs
    I can't seem to find MPEG video codecs for Windows Media Player on Win64. The machine has an NVIDIA card, but NVIDIA does not seem to have a codec that works. (The standard one blue-screens the machine when used). Has anyone gotten MPEG video to play in Media Player on Win64? --- Ben
  • 2. SO should I dual boot, since my system doesn't work?
    I figured x64 had been out for a while, ought to be stable. Last system I bought I figured why not, now it seems every thing I try fails badly. I have a fujitsu 15C scanner - no 64 bit drivers Samsung color duplex printer - no duplex PDF EFX print drivers, broke, buy some new ones or wait Bluetooth adapter, no drivers Windows fax, won't pull addresses from outlook So at this point it seems my easiest option is to buy another hard drive and dual boot to XP Pro when I want to get work done, or boot to x64 when I want to use a solid 64 bit OS that doesn't work. I might seem a little nasty, but I am kinda frustrated. I have some other issues, but if I could at least get the scanner working I can quit thinking of it as a paper wieght. I think the printer issue will be resolved soon enough, and as for Microsoft Fax I am thinking about buying a "real solution", or get it working somehow. If anyone has a workaround for the scanpartner 15C I would be forever grateful.

OT: Windows Vista License Terms Changed

Postby Charlie Russel - MVP » Sat, 04 Nov 2006 15:07:00 GMT

Major (and NEEDED) change to the license terms for retail copies of Vista. 
From the Blog of the Windows Vista Team: 

* You may uninstall the software and install it on another device for your 
use.  You may not do so to share this license between devices.

IOW, someone woke up and realized they had made a mistake.

1.Going from Win2k Term Srv License Srvr to Win2k3 Term Srv Lic Serv

Hello, I've been looking around this forum and I've come across lots of good 
questions and answers about TS. I just want to make sure that I understand 
something.  I'm replacing 2 Win2k terminal servers with 2 Win2k3 terminal 
servers. One of the Win2k3 servers is going to be the license server and the 
other is going to be just a terminal server. Could someone please tell me 
what I need to do with the CAL's on the Win2k term server license server?  Do 
I need to purchase new CAL's for the Win2k3 term server license server? What 
becomes of the old CAL's on the Win2k term server license server? Any help 
will be appreciated.

Thank You

3.Term Licensing For Windows 2003

I am running Windows 2003 Standard Edition.  I installed the terminal
services.  It said the terminal services licensing will expire in 120 days.
Does it mean it need to purchase the terminal services licensing?  In
Windows 2000 Advanced Server, Microsoft allowed 2 free terminal services
licensing.  Is this changed in Windows 2003?


4.Unable to Accept License Agreement terms for Windows Update Catalo

I am trying to download critical updates for an old Windows ME machine that I 
have just rebuilt and which does not have broadband Internet access.
I have Windows XP Home edition, Internet explorer 7, on my main machine and 
would like to download Windows ME updates and install via a USB key.
Problem is: when I put updates into my download basket, select a download 
location and click 'Download Now' I am given a prompt that I must agree to 
licensing terms before the downloads will start. The license agreement is not 
actually displayed, pressing PAGE DOWN causes no changes and the 'Accept' 
button will not become activated. Therefore I cannot download the updates.
Can someone help please ?
