An error message informs you that you cannot move or rename the Documents and...


To specify a different folder for the Documents and Settings folder during installation, follow these steps: 1. Run Winnt.exe or Winnt32.exe by using the /unattend option, and then insert the following entry into the Unattend.txt file, where z:\foldername is the path and folder name you want: [GuiUNattended]
ProfilesDir = z:\foldername 2. Install Windows. The path that you included in the Unattend.txt file is used instead of the default Documents and Settings folder.NOTE: This method does not relocate any key Windows components. Use this method if you require only user-specific data to be moved.

After you install Windows XP, to specify a folder other than the Documents and Settings folder for a particular user's data, follow these steps: 1. Identify the user's profile path. You can identify the profile path either by user security ID (SID) or by user path settings. The user SID method is preferred. To identify the user's profile path by the user SID loadTOCNode(3, 'moreinformation'); a. Use the Getsid tool from the Windows Server Resource Kit to obtain the SID. At a command prompt, use the following syntax: getsid \\ComputerName UserName \\ComputerName UserNameFor example: getsid \\windowsxp joedoe \\windowsxp joedoeThe results look something like this: = The SID for account WINDOWSXP\joedoe is S-1-5-21-1708537768-1993962763-1957994488-1003 b. After you obtain the user SID, start Registry Editor (Regedit.exe or Regedt32.exe), and then select the user SID under the following registry key: HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\ProfileList To identify the profile path by the user's path settings loadTOCNode(3, 'moreinformation'); a. Log on to the computer as the user, and then type set at a command prompt. Note the setting for UserProfile, and then quit the command prompt. b. Log on to the computer as an administrator. c. Use Registry Editor to add the UserProfile setting to the following registry key: HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\ProfileList d. Click the registry key, and then click Find on the Edit menu. e. In the Find box, type the value of the UserProfile setting, and then click Find Next. 2. In the HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\ProfileList registry key, change the ProfileImagePath value to reflect the new path that you want to use, and then quit Registry Editor. 3. Log on to the computer as the user, type set at a command prompt, and then verify that the path has changed.
Moving the entire folder loadTOCNode(2, 'moreinformation'); NOTE: This method does relocate key Windows components. Use this method only if you require the Documents and Settings folder to be moved or renamed and you cannot use the Unattend.txt file to change the name during installation.

To specify a different folder for the entire Documents and Settings folder, including key system components, follow these steps: 1. Log on to the computer as an administrator, and then create a new folder. 2. In the current Documents and Settings folder, on the Tools menu, click Folder Options, and then click the View tab. 3. Under Advanced settings, click Show hidden files and folders, and then click to clear the Hide extensions for known file types and Hide protected operating system files (Recommended) check boxes. 4. Click OK. 5. Click and drag all the folders in the Documents and Settings folder to copy them to the new folder, except for the folder for the currently logged-on administrator. 6. Log off and then log back on, using a different administrator account from the one that you just logged off from. 7. Open the Documents and Settings folder again, and then copy the profile of the administrator that you just logged off from to the new folder. This extra step is needed because you cannot copy the profile of the account that is currently logged on. 8. Log off the computer, and then again log on to the computer as an administrator. 9. Start Registry Editor, and then click Find on the Edit menu. 10. Type documents and settings, and then click Find Next. 11. For every registry key or value that contains the original path, replace the value data or rename the value or registry key to the new path.IMPORTANT: You must complete this change in the registry for every instance of the original path, or your computer may not start. It is imperative that you update all registry keys and values with the new path.

12. Restart the computer. You can now safely remove the original Documents and Settings folder.

Cant download skype, problem with toolbar, error 2738


Take a look in Event Viewer I looked in Event Viewer to find out what MSI-file that generated the error message and found:
Log Name: Application
Source: MsiInstaller
Date: 23.09.2010 21:58:26
Event ID: 1040
... ...
Description:
Beginning a Windows Installer transaction: C:\ProgramData\Skype\{D103C4BA-F905-437A-8049-DB24763BBE36}\SkypeToolbars.msi. Client Process Id: 6564.
2. Running MSIEXEC with logging options I started a "Command Promt" and used the command: "cd C:\ProgramData\Skype\{D103C4BA-F905-437A-8049-DB24763BBE36}" to navigate into the folder containing the MSI-file.
Now using the command: "msiexec /i SkypeToolbars.msi /lv log.txt" (msiexec options: /i = Install, /lv = Log + Verbose output).
After clicking away the error message I just wrote "log.txt" in my "Command Promt" to open the log-file. Near the bottom of the log-file I found this line:
DEBUG: Error 2738: Could not access VBScript runtime for custom action
3. DEBUG: Error 2738 After a quick search at Google I found out this error indicates that the VBScript engine is not registered on the computer.

The solution for a Windows Vista or Windows 7 32bit:
- Click Start -> All Programs -> Accessories
- Right click "Command Promt" and click on "Run as administrator"
- Write "cd %windir%\system32" and hit Enter
- Write "regsvr32.exe vbscript.dll" and hit Enter
- You should now get a message that says: "DllRegisterServer in vbscript.dll succeeded."
- Click "OK"
The solution for a Windows Vista or Windows 7 64bit:
- Click Start -> All Programs -> Accessories
- Right click "Command Promt" and click on "Run as administrator"
- Write "cd %windir%\syswow64" and hit Enter
- Write "regsvr32.exe vbscript.dll" and hit Enter
- You should now get a message that says: "DllRegisterServer in vbscript.dll succeeded."
- Click "OK"
4. Try again... Now I tried once more to run "msiexec /i SkypeToolbars.msi /lv log.txt" (I kept the /lv log.txt option to look for changes if the installer would fail again).
If you still get the same Error than continue to step 5.
5. Cleanup registry first, then re-reg My installation still gave me the same error, so after some more searching and reading on Google I found a solution that explained what I tried before (with the regsvr32.exe) and also an alternative step if that one should fail. The alternative step was to remove the Registry Key pointing to vbscript.dll.
The alternative solution for a Windows Vista or Windows 7 32bit is then:
- Click Start -> All Programs -> Accessories
- Right click "Command Promt" and click on "Run as administrator"
- Write "reg delete "HKCU\SOFTWARE\Classes\CLSID\{B54F3741-5B07-11CF-A4B0-00AA004A55E8}" /f" and hit Enter
- Write "cd %windir%\system32" and hit Enter
- Write "regsvr32.exe vbscript.dll" and hit Enter
- You should now get a message that says: "DllRegisterServer in vbscript.dll succeeded."
- Click "OK"
The alternative solution for a Windows Vista or Windows 7 64bit:
- Click Start -> All Programs -> Accessories
- Right click "Command Promt" and click on "Run as administrator"
- Write "reg delete "HKCU\SOFTWARE\Classes\Wow6432Node\CLSID\{B54F3741-5B07-11CF-A4B0-00AA004A55E8}" /f" and hit Enter
- Write "cd %windir%\ syswow64" and hit Enter
- Write "regsvr32.exe vbscript.dll" and hit Enter
- You should now get a message that says: "DllRegisterServer in vbscript.dll succeeded."
- Click "OK"
Now using the command "msiexec /i SkypeToolbars.msi /lv log.txt" the installer started perfectly, ran all the way thru and Finished.
Conclusion This message indicates that VBScript engine is not currently registered on the Computer running the installer.
Vbscript.dll must get registered to solve the problem.

Error reading event file


The EVT files include the event log messages as they are stored by the system. Each message is composed of an ID (that is, the message itself) and a number of insertion strings. The IDs are translated into strings through the use of messages DLLs.

All the application event logs messages DLLs are defined under the following registry keys:
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\EventLog\ Application

All the system event logs messages DLLs are defined under the following registry keys:
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\EventLog\ System

For example, the TCP/IP service's message DLL is defined under the following registry entry:
Key = HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\EventLog\ System\TcpIp Value = EventMessageFile REG_EXPAND_SZ %SystemRoot%\System32\ netevent.d

Therefore, all the TCP/IP event log messages are defined in the DLL netevent.dll.

When the user double-clicks an event for which the message DLL is not defined in the registry, the message string cannot be displayed and the following message is displayed: The description for Event ID (51) in Source (aservice) could not be found. It contains the following insertion string(s): ... Below is a description of a way to read the system event logs of a computer with WINS on a computer without WINS. This sample can be adapted for any application or system component.

WARNING: Using Registry Editor incorrectly can cause serious, system-wide problems that may require you to reinstall Windows NT to correct them. Microsoft cannot guarantee that any problems resulting from the use of Registry Editor can be solved. Use this tool at your own risk.

The following operations are required:
  1. On the computer with WINS, run REGEDIT and select the following registry key:
    HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\EventLog\ System\Wi
  2. On the Registry menu, click Export Registry File and select a file name (for example, Winsreg.reg).
  3. On the computer without WINS (for example, the one used to read the system event logs of the computer with WINS), run REGEDIT. On the Registry menu, click Import Registry File and select the file Winsreg.reg previously saved on the other computer.
  4. You should now have the following registry entry on the target computer (that is, the one without WINS):
    Key = HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\ EventLog\System\Wins Value = EventMessageFile REG_EXPAND_SZ %SystemRoot%\System32\ winsevnt.d

    You now need to copy the file defined in the EventMessageFile registry value in your System32 directory. If X: is mapped to \\wins_server\admins$, you can run the following command: copy x:\System32\winsevnt.dll %SystemRoot%\System32\winsevnt.dll
    Of course, the file may be copied somewhere else, but in this case you need to edit the EventMessageFile registry value manually so that it points to the directory with the DLL.
  5. Close all the instances of the Event Viewer and rerun the Event Viewer. You should now be able to dump all the WINS events.

Cannot delete ESET folder from Program files. the program already uninstalled but left this folder in my Program files folder. error message: "You need permission to perform this action.'' OS - Vista...


Apparently MS in their infinite wisdom decided that in vista they would take the power away from the user and remove the administrator from the equation.
So no matter how many thing your try in the user accounts you will not get full admin rights.
but here is a reg hack that worked for me real well. I am running windows vista home basic

Click Start and Run type in regedit and enter
your now at the registry editor.
click and expand HKEYLOCALMACHINE
go down and click SOFTWARE
click MICROSOFT
click WINDOWS
click CURRENTVERSION
click POLICIES
click SYSTEM
you will see the registry entries to the right
right click in the white area and select new DWORD
Name it "EnableLinkedConnections" and enter
Right Click on EnableLinkedConnections and choose MODIFY change the Data Value to "1"
Save and exit Registry Editor
Reboot your computer and try deleting the folder you wanted to again.

WARNING:
Using this reg edit you are changing your registry and could develop problems if you don't do it correctly. Be Warned and do some research prior if you need to understand registry editor.

Can't edit registry on Vista 64 bit


Hi there. With Vista, even though you may have an administrator account, some actions require you to go through an "extra channel", so to speak. This is to add extra security to your system from outside interference.

What you should try:

Click on your Start Menu.
At the bottom, under All Programs, type regedit. Do NOT hit enter.
At the top, it should display the regedit program.
Right-click the regedit program and then select Run as Administrator.
It should now let you edit.

Let me know how it goes

No rights to run control panel requires new instal need media


1. to gain rights do the following.

The built-in Administrator account is hidden from Welcome Screen when a user account with Administrator privileges exists and enabled. In Windows XP Home Edition, you can login as built-in Administrator in Safe Mode only. For XP Professional, press CTRL + ALT + DEL twice at the Welcome Screen and input your Administrator password in the classic logon window that appears.
To have the Administrator account displayed in the Welcome Screen, try one of these methods:
Method 1: Using TweakUI Power Toy for Windows XP Download TweakUI from here: v2.00 for Windows XP | v2.10 for XP SP1 and above
Open TweakUI and click "Logon" option in the left pane. Put a checkmark against the option "Show Administrator on Welcome Screen". Click OK to close TweakUI. Logoff and see if Welcome Screen lists Administrator login. Changes are immediate and you can use the Winkey + L to switch back to Welcome Screen to see Administrator account is listed.
Use this procedure to hide/unhide any user account from the Welcome Screen. Please remember, you can still login to a hidden account using CTRL+ALT+DEL classic logon method, but cannot Fast User Switch to a hidden user account.
Method 2 - Manual registry edit
  • Click Start, Run and type Regedit.exe
  • Navigate to the following key:
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE \ SOFTWARE \ Microsoft \ Windows NT \ CurrentVersion \ Winlogon \ SpecialAccounts \ UserList
  • Use the File, Export option to backup the key
  • Create a new DWORD Value named Administrator
  • Double-click Administrator, and set 1 as its data
  • Exit the Registry Editor.
For Windows XP Home Edition While you can configure Windows XP Home Edition to show Administrator account in the Welcome Screen, you cannot login as Administrator in Normal mode. Visit the following link for more information:
