this tool is very good,i like it.
Running “Win 2003 Optimize Tool v1.45″ on Windows Server 2003 R2
(the latest beta from m$)
makes the system not able to log in, if the “UxTheme” button is pressed.
I restored the .bak-files, and it’s good again.
All other stuff seems to work like it scould in r2, thanks for a good program!
Very smart Tool – Thank You ! )
Trying to get R2 tested as soon as possible:)
Thanks for this tool. Using 2K3 Server SP1 Web as workstation OS is just perfect with your tool. No need to search in registry for values and change data and add policies…
And my OS is better than XP SP2. I forget about all the bloat installed with XP.
I’m glad to see this tool still being upgraded, it truely rocks, still haven’t seen one problem with it yet .
I didn’t find you’re e-mail anywhere, so am woundering if by chance you will eventually make one of these tools for XP.
Sounds like a lot of work, since XP needs so much tweaking, but wow, it could be a very powerful tool to get it working like MS planned….
Take it easy
Thank you this nice app!Congratulation!!!!
XP Games installation and System Restore doesn’t support MUI.
I mean if I have for example russian MUI for 2003 (english) server installed and after that I install XP games and System Restore (with the help of your nice tool:) ) – then they are not using MUI (I suppose files for them are absent in MUI for 2k3 or just not installed). But of course MUI files for XP games and system restore service are present in MUI for XP. How about an option in your tool to install these XP MUI files ?
I needed for the Fast User Switching. Program writes “…work only if your Server is Converted to Workstation..”. What I must to do for this convertation?
there is some hacks that convert your server os to workstation (server 2003 goes to windows xp), but these are ilegal to use, so you are you at your own with this one.
Any idea how to turn off internet explorer enhanced security under x64 ? I like this small tool, but it seems to work only under x32 editions of win 2k3.
Going to look this up as soon as I get hands on to some x64 hardvare
