Vista is the issue

August 29, 2007 – 14:54

I am currently trying to diagnose several Windows XP SP2 computers with severe network problems, the bottleneck is in the network. Whilst deploying a group policy object the Windows Installer Service crashed due to a network time-out, and this was the resultant response from Error Reporting:

Problem with Windows XP is Windows Vista

So there you go the problem with Windows XP is Windows Vista!

  2. Does the solution involve installing Linux?

  3. To be fair I don’t even think I would touch Linux for these desktops, Active Directory + Group Policy + Windows Installer saves me lots of time not to mention Virtual PC 2007.

  4. Tried active directory + Fedora Directory server = directory integration, combined with PXE install (overnight to prevent bandwidth issues)

    Not that they would ever use Linux 😛 although I will say windows, AD and GP is soo much easier to admin…
