  • Re: Vista Hibernation - how to re-enable?

    It works again. Not checked the same issue in RC2, but I hope it is more obvious :-) Many thanks Andrew

    Cheers Dave, RC2 seems to be curing many of the problems....and I am sure once the vendors give us the drivers every one will be smiling again :-) Andrew

  • Vista Defender - "Software Explorer"

    Hi, Is anyone getting frustrated with the above part of the new Vista Windows Defender program? I am. It is telling me that several of my applications have "not yet been classified" and giving me a pop up every few hours. How do we overide the settings? - ie allow applications to proceed normally, or does this depend on MS approving them?

  • Vista Hibernation - how to re-enable?

    Hi, On Vista 5728, I used the disk clean up wizard to clear out some space on my 30gig partition (somehow Vista reported only 3gig left (after only 2 weeks of use), and would not burn a data DVD because it had run out of space :-( I ticked the box to remove the hibernation sys file, thinking I could simply re-enable hibernation once I had burned the

  • Re: Office 2007 - read-only (Compatability)

    I got this sorted - it seems that the whole system is read only except the my docuements areas. I was able to adjust the ACL security settings so that when I cleared the read only attribute, it actually stayed in place rather than kept being inherited from the root settings. Such fun, this Vista, but still pretty! Andrew

  • Re: Product Re-Activation

    Hi Terry, Activation is an annoying necessity I fear - and one which MS would be very dis-inclined to "open a back door" for anyone!. Whilst we all assume that members of Partner / OEM / Members groups are devoid of dishonesty, I am quite sure that in reality, there will inevitably be those which dabble in the "dark side" which are

  • Vista & RPC over HTTP on the Small Business Server 2003?

    Hi, Has anyone got RPC over HTTP with Vista RC1 & Outlook 2007 on a Small Business Server 2003? I have my XP SP2 box quite happily connecting via RPC over HTTP on the Small Business Server 2003, but not the Vista client. Anyone got any tips / points of reference to get this working? (Understandably the SBS newsgroups can't advise me on this

  • Office 2007 - read-only (Compatability)

    Hi, Whenever I open a spreadsheet (Excel) it opens as read only. I have ensured that the files are not read only (applied the setting to apply to the folder and files etc). When I open in Excel they become read only! I then go back to check the folder again, and all the files are read only.. The folders are not in the root of a system drive, but on

  • SBS 2003 & SharePoint Portal Server 2003

    Is there any plans to develop a SBS intergrated version of SPS? (Just like we have for CRM?) I have a client, with several branch offices, whom are using WSS. They want some of the functionality of SPS, but is reluctant to spend lots of money on separate new server box, and the licensing costs are also putting him off. Any thoughts? - ie if there is

  • Re: Vista Beta for SBSC?

    Replying to myself now :-) , for I now have a beta copy of Vista, and it is currently churning away installing on a spare box. Picked it up at a Gold Partner MS sponsored event yesterday. The event was ok, but I learnt more in David's recent Vista presentation in 30 minutes, than I did yesterday in half a day! At least, now I can include a few screen
