Outlook2003Logo[1] Trying to open up outlook on a new windows profile can sometimes bring up the error message “Installation Error: File not Found
A required installation file SKU112.CAB could not be found.”
Resolution
Go into Registry Editor (Start, Run, “regedit”). Go to HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Microsoft\Office\11.0\Delivery. There should be only 1 directory under Delivery, which is your DownloadCode (mine was 90000409-6000-11D3-8CFE-0150048383C9). Select that directory [or all if more]. On the right side of the screen, right-click on CDCache. Change the value to 0. and problem solved

Remote_desktop_connectionUpon trying to open up a remote application on a 2008 terminal server I am greeted with the following error:unable to open connection file.

This issue seems to be down to the file signing , if you have access to the terminal server , republish the file without signing and redeploy this. You can take out the signing manually by

  • Opening up the .rdp file in question with notepad
  • Find the line starting “signscope:s:” and delete any of the text on that line and after it. ( This removes the signing code )
  • Save the text file and try again

Belkin Network 5-Port USB2.0 Hub - F5L009UK

Click on the Image to Buy Belkin Network 5-Port USB2.0 Hub - F5L009UK

UPDATE Since this post was written , Vmware have included USB passthrough in its most recent version 4.1 http://kb.vmware.com/selfservice/microsites/search.do?language=en_US&cmd=displayKC&externalId=1022290 The VMware Virtulised Operating systems ESXi and ESX do not support USB passthrough. VMware has stopped USB passthrough, as ESX was designed for VMotion. You can migrate Virtual Machines between physical servers and no one will notice. USB will prevent this, since VM is locked to physical USB port. This brings a problem for Small Business’ when it comes down to their backup solutions. Large Enterprises will use SCSI or SAN which are compatible with VMotion. Luckily this problem has been resolved using a device from Belkin. The Belkin Network 5-Port USB2.0 Hub maps up to 5 USB devices over a normal TCP/IP network for you. Installation is simple and once installed on a machine will immediately detect the plug and play devices connected to the HUB This device will also solve issues with servers needing to access USB Dongles with hardware keys on them for anti piracy reasons as seen here The cheapest I could find was one on Amazon for £52 including free postage Belkin Network 5-Port USB2.0 Hub Belkin Network 5-Port USB2.0 Hub - F5L009UK This is proven working with an average transfer rate of 30mb/s

Sata Native ModeI was reinstalling Windows XP on a laptop , Upon loading the Serial ATA Drivers ( Via a floppy during setup ) and running the installation I was asked “insert the disk labeled Intel Application Accelerator driver into drive A” The Intel Application Accelerator driver uses AHCI for Native Hot Plugging a drive , which is something you are not going to hopefully need while installing windows. To stop this error message coming up I went into the BIOS and disabled AHCI for the windows Installation If this is not an option for you, you might have to go ahead and create another floppy with the needed intel application accelerator driver! 14-wxp-boot3[1] Here is a RAR file with all the needed drivers Details on how to yourself : http://download.intel.com/support/chipsets/imst/sb/manual45_oem.pdf

Excel Logo I had 4 XLA Files, that I need to roll out to multiple machines across a network. These XLA files needed to be installed in a certain order. I found some Visual Basic Scripting Code ( off AppDeploy.com ) to add the Add-In and Enable it ( Can do this manualy by going to Tools , Add ins ) On Error Resume Next Dim oXL Dim oAddin Set oXL = CreateObject("Excel.Application") oXL.Workbooks.Add Set oAddin = oXL.AddIns.Add("\\Network Path\NameOfXLAAddIn.xla", True) oAddin.Installed = True oXL.Quit Set oAddin = Nothing Set oXL = Nothing I saved this code in a .vbs file , and created a vbs file for each of the xla files that need installing. I then created a .bat file to run these in order. What I found was that only half of the XLA’s where being added to the machine. I checked in the local Add in’s directory ( C:\Documents and Settings\%USERNAME%\Application Data\Microsoft\AddIns ) and the Addin’s wearn’t being copied from the server before being registered. I then added an xcopy function to the BAT file to copy the file manually before adding , and this resolved the issue xcopy "\\Server Path\Example.xla" "C:\Documents and Settings\%USERNAME%\Application Data\Microsoft\AddIns" /y

  2. Right-click on the Win­dows key.
  3. Choose Per­mis­sions, then click Advanced.
  4. The first two entries should start with “Deny” per­tain­ing to the “Every­one” group.
  5. High­light the first entry and click Remove. Now remove the other “Deny” entry.
  6. Close the reg­istry edi­tor and try your un/instal­la­tion again.

File: \windows\system32\ntkrnlpa.exe Status: 0XC0000098 Info: Windows failed to load because the kernel is missing, or corrupt.
The machine wouldn’t boot into safe mode , after some more research this kernel file is used in Windows Vista. I copied the file from another Windows Server 2008 Datacenter boxVirtual Machine , and luckily the machine booted fine. Here’s a link to the file http://www.pariswells.com/upload/ntkrnlpa.rar
