According to the thread there is a WDDM driver in U1 that you can install manually to fix the problem by browsing to –

C:\Program Files\Common Files\VMware\Drivers\wddm_video

A good one :)

Microsoft: Windows 2008 ROUTE ADD elevation error

July 27th, 2009 1 comment

Tijdens het toevoegen van een route op Windows 2008 (Vista) kan je de volgende foutmelding krijgen;

“The requested operation requires elevation.”

Deze melding wordt veroorzaakt wanneer het zeer geliefde fenomeen User Account Control ingeschakeld is.

Dit kan uitgeschakeld worden onder:

Control Panel >  User Accounts > Turn User Account Control On or Off

Na uitschakelen dient het systeem herstart te worden. Vervolgens kan de route worden toegevoegd.

Microsoft: Windows Server 2008 Access Based Enumeration

March 17th, 2009 2 comments

In Windows Server 2003 Access Based Enumeration was a separate download you hade to download and install on your server to enable this option. For those of you who do not know ABE let me explain very briefly what ABE does.

Access-based Enumeration (ABE) has been included in Microsoft® Windows Server™ 2003 Service Pack 1 to a) increase folder level security, b) improve administrator productivity by reliably streamlining large directory structures for less-technically savvy users, and c) provide a more seamless migration experience for end-users migrating to Windows servers. ABE filters shared folders visible to a user based on that individual user’s access rights, preventing the display of folders or other shared resources that the user does not have rights to access. ABE can be accessed via graphical user interface (GUI), command-line executable tool, and a robust advanced programming interface (API).

Check out the details for Windows Server 2003 ABE: http://www.microsoft.com/windowsserver2003/techinfo/overview/abe.mspx

The good news is ABE is integrated in Windows Server 2008 and it has an GUI. Let me explain to you how to do it:

Microsoft: How to disable hibernation on Windows Server 2008

March 16th, 2009 No comments

When Windows Server 2008 is installed, hibernation is enabled by default. Depending on the amount of memory the size of this file is approximately equal to the amount of random access memory (RAM) that is installed on the Server. For a server you want to disable this Vista option.

  1. Click Start, and then type cmd in the Start Search box.
  2. In the search results list, right-click Command Prompt, and then click Run as Administrator.
  3. When you are prompted by User Account Control, click Continue.
  4. At the command prompt, type powercfg.exe /hibernate off, and then press ENTER.
  5. Type exit, and then press ENTER.
    If you want to make hibernation available then you can re-enable this vista option.
  1. Click Start, and then type cmd in the Start Search box.
  2. In the search results list, right-click Command Prompt, and then click Run as Administrator.
  3. When you are prompted by User Account Control, click Continue.
  4. At the command prompt, type powercfg.exe /hibernate on, and then press ENTER.
  5. Type exit, and then press ENTER to close the Command Prompt window.
