I have 2 suggestions based on my assumptions since you did not elaborate on what environment you are having your P3, network or single user.
1. If you are logging on a network before you open your P3, it is most likely that you don’t have a read and write access to the P3WIN directory or any of its subfolders. So, first you have to log into your computer as an administrator, we call it local administration, and go to windows explorer, right click the P3 directory and choose sharing and security on the pop-up. Add your Network ID or make sure your network ID has all the access enabled for these directories. Then you can go back to the network and restart P3.
2. If it is single user, check your P3.ini located on Windows directory and see if the WORKLOC directory is beyond 54 characters from the root directory. P3 was created in the 90’s when DOS was still one of the reigning OS. So it means it follows the 8+3 rule of filenaming and other limitations. Make sure that the directory listed is as near as possible to the root directory, that is from C:\ Many errors in P3 are caused by these limitations since we’re already used with the new Windows OS’s wherein you can almost create a folder with endless description. My suggestion is, in using P3, try to minimize your folder names to 8 characters, same goes with filenaming.

Http/1.1 internal server error


If you are running two versions of ASP.NET, you may get HTTP:/1.1 500 Internal Server Error when creating a new Web project or opening an existing Web project in Visual Studio.

This problem may occur when IIS is not sure what version of ASP.NET to use or where to locate ASP.NET files. One of the following solutions should fix the problem.

Solution 1.

  1. Remove web.config file from inetpub/wwwroot directory
  2. Go to IIS, Right click on Default web site / All tasks / Check server extensions and let it run
  3. Reset IIS by right click on IIS or call iisreset from Run command

Solution 2.

  1. Install ASP.NET again using the following command from your Run command: C:WINNTMicrosoft.NETFrameworkv1.1.4322aspnet_regiis.exe
    Make sure to change the windows folder and ASP.NET version folder with the version what you want to install
  2. Reset IIS

Solution 3. Applies to Windows Server 2003
Note: This is a Microsoft KB article:

When you try to create a new Microsoft ASP.NET 1.1 application after you change the script mapping of the existing ASP.NET 1.1 Web application to ASP.NET 1.0 on a Microsoft Windows Server 2003-based computer, you may receive the following error message:
The Web server reported the following error when attempting to create or open the Web project located at the following URL: 'http://localhost/822319ev1'. 'HTTP/1.1 500 Internal Server Error'.
CAUSE
This issue occurs because Windows Server 2003 does not allow two versions of ASP.NET to run in the same application pool.
WORKAROUND
To work around the problem, do one of the following:
Restart the IIS before you create a new ASP.NET 1.1 application. At the command prompt type the following command: iisreset
OR -
Create an ASP.NET application in a separate application pool. Create the script-mapped application (ASP.NET 1.0) in a separate application pool -- for example, in the ScriptMapappPool application pool. Then, create a new ASP.NET 1.1 application in an application pool other than ScriptMapappPool. For more information about how to create an application pool, visit the following Microsoft Web site: Configuring Application Pools http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/1kdfe21k(VS.80).aspx

Features of active directory


Active Directory think of it has management system for all network LAN PCs in your domain. You can add users to certain enterprise groups, you can disable accounts, push and pull software application better then you can in SMS domain. I use to to clone user accounts or create new user groups. Very easy to learn. To install on Server requires a domain, DNS. If you're using Windows Server 2003 and setup the server to manage active directory all the options for the installation process will appear for installation. There are a lot of info online and in books if you need more info. There are training classing offer at MS Solutions Centers.

What is the acitiv dirctry


Dear , friend


Active Directory (AD) is a technology created by Microsoft that provides a variety of network services,

Active directory is a directory service used to store information about the network resources across a domain and also centralize the network.


DNS stands for Domain Name Server. These are the servers that match up a fully qualified domain with the proper IP address. This is necessary because computers only understand the IP address for your domain (eg- 123.45.678.90).

Active directory


An application directory partition is represented by a domainDNS object with an instanceType attribute value of DS_INSTANCETYPE_IS_NC_HEAD combined with DS_INSTANCETYPE_NC_IS_WRITEABLE. This domainDNS object represents the application directory partition root (NC head), and is named similar to a regular domain partition, for example, "DC=dynamicdata,DC=fabrikam,DC=com", which corresponds to a DNS name of "dynamicdata.fabrikam.com". An application directory partition can, therefore, be instantiated anywhere a domain partition can be instantiated. There is no NetBIOS name associated with an application directory partition.

It is possible to nest application directory partitions, that is, an application directory partition can have child application directory partitions. Searches with subtree scope rooted at an application directory partition head will generate continuation references to the child application directory partitions.

An application directory partition replica can only be created on a domain controller that is running on Windows Server 2003 and later and only while the Domain-Naming FSMO role is held by a Windows Server 2003 and later domain controller. In a mixed forest that has both Windows Server 2003 domain controllers and down-level domain controllers (Windows 2000 domain controllers or Windows NT 4.0 primary domain controllers), an attempt to create an application directory partition replica on a down-level domain controller will fail.

An application directory partition also has a corresponding crossRef object in the Partitions container of the configuration partition. The crossRef can be pre-created manually before creating the domainDNS object. The pre-created crossRef object must have the attribute values shown in the following table or the partition creation will fail. If the crossRef object does not exist, the Active Directory server will create one when the application directory partition is created.

Regarding ActiveDirectory Services in Windows system


Active Directory (AD) is a technology created by Microsoft that provides a variety of network services, including: using the same database, for use primarily in Windows environments. Active Directory also allows administrators to assign policies, deploy software, and apply critical updates to an organization. Active Directory stores information and settings in a central database. Active Directory networks can vary from a small installation with a few hundred objects, to a large installation with millions of objects (though not easily [3]).
Active Directory was previewed in 1996, released first with Windows 2000 Server edition, and revised to extend functionality and improve administration in Windows Server 2003. Additional improvements were made in both Windows Server 2003 R2 and Windows Server 2008.
Active Directory was called NTDS (NT Directory Service) in older Microsoft documents. This name can still be seen in some AD binaries.
There is a common misconception that Active Directory provides software distribution. Software distribution is run by a separate service that uses additional proprietary schema attributes that work in conjunction with the LDAP protocol. Active Directory does not automate software distribution, but provides a mechanism by which other services can provide software distribution.
