Any way I can get my NAV 2003 to work with WXP SP2? I cannot live
update any more. It hangs up. Bummer!

Thanks

If your NAV 2003 subscription expired, you'll
have to renew it with Symantec.

Nice! Except the URL won't work for me! Wants me to launch from the
'original site'. Yeh right!



Thanks anyway.

Okay - I downloaded it, installed it, and it seems to be working. Why
can't I download updates? I get error saying my connection is bad,
but I am on line all time outside of AVG.

Thanks

That happens sometimes due to excessive load on the AVG update servers.

Really? I don't perform 'upgrades' on my car because fortunately it
doesn't need them. On the other hand, I can think of many maintenance
things that do indeed affect functionality. Adding a lock washer to
prevent a critical connector from coming loose certainly could make my
car cease to function. But I don't recall Ford telling me to come in
to get the washer and put it on myself.

How many users do you think there are out there that are completely
'lost' when it comes to understanding the implications of SP2? How
many users are out there who have no concept of how to understand and
download an upgrade and apply it? I've had them laugh in my face,
saying you gotta be kidding. Keeps me in business however.

It seems to me that a new installation CD containing all current SP
items is completely reasonable to expect MS to make and provide to all
REGISTERED owners along with the capability to do an installation
'update'. One could look on such an operation as a recall. In fact,
WXP is still be being sold without any SP's even though SP1 and SP2
have been out for a long time.

Whew!

Sorry to get carried away. I've gone to bed.

You raise perfectly valid points.

But I do maintain that MS publishing a service pack is more akin to a car
company doing a recall than yourself (or other qualified people) doing
'regular maintenance', and to this end I think the analogy is valid--if
you're not qualified to even do regular maintenance yourself, you go to your
dealer or a local shop.

Ok, no point in further arguing whether the analogy was correct or not...I'm
starting to confuse myself. :-p

Not from M$ but you can build your own by creating a SlipStreamed
installation disk from your existing XP installation dosk plus a copy
of the downloadable SP2 file.

Just to mention a few.....
