  • Re: Restoring NTBackups created in XP to Vista

    I have just run into the same issue. You can workaround it though. If you copy... ntbackup.exe ntmsapi.dll vsapi.dll From a Windows XP or 2003 system32 directory to a new folder on your Vista install (I put it in c:\program files\ntbackup) it works just fine after ignoring the initial error message. Hope this helps. Paul

  • Re: Microsoft OEM Products

    Perhaps I did not explain myself clearly enough :) This is a new customer to me and they have recently purchased a number of Office 2003 professional and Windows XP OEM from a trusted online store, before they engaged with me. Now, they did not buy PCs or any hardware in most cases so the licenses are not valid as far as I understand it. This generally

  • Microsoft OEM Products

    I have a new customer who was pretty shocked today when I informed them that much of the OEM software that they had recently purchased is effectively worthless under the OEM license agreement. They have spent a reasonable amount of money, effectively for nothing and though it is their responsibility to investigate the licence agreements, I couldn’t

  • More on migrations

    Noticed this KB article "How to install Small Business Server 2003 in an existing Active Directory domain" on the MS website which is new. http://support.microsoft.com/kb/884453/en-us Obviously has things in common with other procedures out there, but it is still well worth a read.

  • Introduction to Outlook 2003/Exchange 2003 feature set...

    There do not seem to be many users out there thesedays that I come accross that have not already had some exposure to Outlook & Exchange either in thier own enviroment or a previous workplace. I have just finished putting in an Exchange system as an upgrade from a pop3 system and 90% of the users do not yet understand how having an Exchange server

  • Re: Exchange Server Intelligent Message Filter

    Most of them are very happy with it. The system comes with a control panel so they are able to see at a glance e-mail which has been quarantined and release it to the queue if they need to do so. They can also set black/white lists and define a list of valid e-mail addresses for thier domain which increases the accuracy further again. The spam identification

  • Re: Post migration problem

    Thanks for your help David; you pushed me in the right direction enough to find the answer. Basically I need to change the disk from being dynamic back to basic by modifying the boot sector.

  • Re: Exchange Server Intelligent Message Filter

    I have not read that document as yet, but I do intend to. I have had pretty good results with the IMF so far though. I tend not to use it these days as I have e-mail cleansed by a 3rd party for all of my customers on support contracts. I feel better about that as I know the nasties out there can't even communicate with the SBS box, saves bandwidth and
