Was probably designed for XP and 2K probably has different keys than XP. But, could very well be that it is only supported on English systems.

jeroen, could you email back to the guy who sent the file?
I saw someone else got it from MS too but there is no real knowledge on the net about it.

what I would like to know is does it use the sendkeys method or does it write stuff to the stream value or is there indeed some hidden api call that everyone has failed to find?

Another hit:
http://www.windowsitpro.com/Article/ArticleID/47605/47605.html

So it seems since the binary HKCU value is already loaded into memory when the user logs in, and written back from there when logging out, it has to be written either when the user's logged off into the HKEY_USERS\-GUID- section, or put as a startup/run once thing before the user logs on.

It works on a WinXP (english) OS and it doesn't on a Win2K (english) Server

Sorry for the late response!

I've mailed the guy at ms, when I get an answer, I'll let you know. I've only tested the tool on WinXP as well since that was what I needed it for, so I guess it's quite possible that it's only for WinXP.

When I have more info, you'll hear from me. In the mean time, the WinXP version can be downloaded using the link below. It remains active only as long as the file is downloaded at least once a month or so, so if it disappears you can send a PM or something and I'll put it up there again.

Get the file here

This is very nasty but works nonetheless...
Code:

Dim $WshShell, $x
$WshShell = CreateObject("WScript.Shell")
$WshShell.Run("cmd /c start ::{20D04FE0-3AEA-1069-A2D8-08002B30309D}\::{21EC2020-3AEA-1069-A2DD-08002B30309D}\::{0DF44EAA-FF21-4412-828E-260A8728E7F1}")
$WshShell.AppActivate("Taskbar and Start Menu Properties")
Sleep 2
$x=SendKeys ("q")
Sleep 2
$x=SendKeys ("{ENTER}")


replace the sendkey "s" with a Q for dutch os's.

what's wrong with putting it as a start-up script and under default user?

FYI: Still have not received a reply from the MS guy. I doubt an answer will follow. Should I receive an answer, I'll post again.
