Does Microsoft realize they have a major flaw in Windows XP?

Now I know you may think they do realize the issue because they have a
Knowledge Base article on the issue. But come'on how long has Windows XP
existed in the Market? And if you know anything about Knowledge Base
articles and statements such as this in them "Microsoft is researching this
problem and will post more information in this article when the information
becomes available," you'll know that the issue will never be addressed -
forever. Give me one example where a statement such as this in a Knowledge
Base article was EVER addressed afterwards. Just one. Here is the KB:

http://support.microsoft.com/default.aspx?scid=kb;en-us;884564

Now I can tell you the RPC error as they have written here is only half the
story. The other half they camouflage but if you read the article closely
you will see they say, "receive either of the following error messages..."
The important word here is "either." That means one or the other - maybe
both since that is not addressed. The old Aristotlean logic here.

Anyway reading further it says for cause, "because of a mismatch in the
computer name and the name that the RPC service expects." Now this
addresses one half of the Venn not the other. In fact the "either" has been
completely ignored. The cause addresses the RPC half of the either NOT the
other namely, "You do not have access rights to Logical Disk Manager on
computer name."

So let's assume the Cause preamble is not the whole story (they do say
"may") and jump into the various "methods" listed.

Notice the word "one" in the preamble and again "one" in the third "method."
It turns out the issue can arise when we "disconnect the network cable
during the Windows XP Out of Box Experience." Well that's all fine and
dandy. What if there is no Network connection during the OOBE? Hmmm...
Obviously this article implies that if we install Windows XP without a
Network Connection then we run the risk of at some time in the future, "You
do not have access rights to Logical Disk Manager on computer name." And
that is what has happened to me. I removed the system from the Network
Connection to do some work on it and guess what? I can no longer access
Disk Manager. Whether it is hooked up to the Domain or not from Windows XP.
Believe it or not I CAN access the Disk Manager from the Domain Controller
but no longer from Windows XP itself.

Hence I have to re-install because of this issue. And to make sure I don't
experience it again I have to make sure I do it while on the Network. Or
maybe not. The point is this issue has existed for three years now. And
what we have here is all that has been said about the matter and likely ever
will.

The article was re-reviewed July 15 2005 (just a few weeks ago).
The problem (symptom, cause) is clearly stated and a workaround provided.

The problem itself is still under investigation and a fix may be forthcoming
in the future.

Beyond this I fail to see the point of your message. Is the workaround not
working for you or are you experiencing some other problem you think is
related to this one ?

The way I read it, that article refers to disconnecting the Network Cable
DURING the oobe, not before or after it.

A reinstall seems a bit drastic. Perhaps changing your computer name to a
temporary one and then back again might resolve the issue.

Otherwise Googling for that particular error message may turn up a
workaround.

Yes John that is what it says. But if you install without a Network
Connection then during the OOBE there is no Network connection. In other
words the cable is gone or what amounts to the same thing it has been
removed.

Now to tell you the truth trying to match up my situation with this OOBE
thing is probably stretching it. Here is MY cause. When we remove Windows
XP from a domain by removing the cable and then loging in with the
Administrator local account, we will find that Windows Disk Manager gives
the error as stated. Pretty simple.

But I am going to try your idea now. Off line. Thanks.

Are you ACTUALLY telling us that you don't know how to create a
Network Connection BEFORE the OOBE? We have freedom to activate our
OS ANYTIME during the 30-day grace period we are given. As an
example, I NEVER activate my OS after a new install UNTIL I have
installed an Antivirus product and shaken the machine out. I make
sure I have a network connection BEFORE I attempt to activate the OS.

This is only common sense.

Ah you know what Jon I think you got it. I remember once I read that when
we disconnect Windows XP from the domain to do something like what I want to
do I should remove it from the domain first. That is what I am going to
try. I'll hook it back up to the domain release it from the domain and try
again. We'll see how that goes. Thanks for the help.

Well how am I suppose to know that? I really do not care if you don't like
my life. It's the only one I have and I am going to stick with it
regardless. I never said anything about whether I was the only one that
"hit on it." You say it's been talked about before "not the first time?"
Well instead of just words prove it. I'm all ears.

Reinstall was necessary. Now I just have to figure what happened so that I
don't do it again. But to be honest with you I think it is a flaw in this
operating sytem and I am not the first to experience it nor will I be the
last. Of course with the level of feedback I received by my post I can
understand why the issue will likely never be fixed. Out all who took the
time to respond I wish to extend my thanks to Jon. Jon we need more like
you here.

I'm really sorry you didn't like the truth, my friend. That's all I
have to give. If Microsoft says they are working on the issue, they
are, you can bet on it.

No the machine was not in a position to be hooked up to the Network during
the install. Please try to give me some credit.

Nor is my machine ever in a position to be hooked up to the Network
during the install, since I have NO connection to the Network until my
network card's software is installed AFTER XP is completely installed
and running. Yet I have never experienced your trouble, in almost 5
years since XP Beta 2 was released to testers.

I have also NEVER been denied an activation, either via the Internet
or toll-free number. Yet I have reinstalled and activated my OS MANY,
MANY times, sometimes in the same day.

No IS Windows 2000. Be Honest might start a whole new escapade Microsoft.

http://support.microsoft.com/default.aspx?scid=kb;en-us;328520

Also the hardware wizard leaves a lot to be desired. You forgot to include
no more support for ISA cards in the Documentation. No support for
Hardrives used in Windows 2000. What next you got up your sleeves? It's

Well I don't know what to tell you. You never experienced the issue and I
did. So has another user I posted the link in this thread somewhere. Does
that mean we are all lying? Does that mean you support Microsoft when they
say they are looking into it and never do? Does that mean the article I was
referring to is not the correct one for this issue? Actually there is
another one: But it is related to trying to use the Decice Manager in
Windows XP to attach to Windows 2003 Server so I decided to not mention that
one because it depends on ports which isn't the case here.

You are wrong. If Microsoft says they are working on the issue you can bet
your bottom dollar it has been forgotten. Would you like to see a Knowledge
Base article that discusses an issue in MS-DOS or in Internet Information
Services 2.0 or Windows NT 3.51 that says the exact same thing? No you
wouldn't because you think I am making it all up. Well so you say.

IMHO Microsoft should have made a new and corrected version
of XP, incorporating the many known security loopholes, and all
of the other thousands of patches in the service packs and cumulative
updates. The new version should be called XP Second Edition.
It will of course be free to everyone owning a legitimate copy of
XP. That's what I'd do if I had 50 billion smackeroos.

I have NEVER said, or even implied, that you could be lying.'
There are millions of KB articles in the Microsoft databases.

Just because there is a past KB article which may or may not be
concering the same thing, doesn't mean that Microsoft either stopped
working on it, or failed to continue working on it.

There are thousands of Microsoft employees all around the world in
Microsoft's various support and software engineering positions, some
working on "this" and some working on "that". We never truly know
what they are or are not working on at any one time, since they seldom
tell the public (after all, they are working with Microsoft's source
code, which is not available to the general public.)

How do we really know they aren't working on this issue, unless they
themselves announce that they have stopped? No one (and many within
Microsoft's rank and file) knows what Microsoft engineers are working
on and what they are not working on.

Until you can document your proclamation that Microsoft is no longer
working on the issue from Microsoft sources, I will continue to point
out such foolishness on yours and others parts.

So there goes all my disks Microsoft. Thanks bunch. May in Windows 2000?
No IS Windows 2000. Be Honest might start a whole new escapade Microsoft.

http://support.microsoft.com/default.aspx?scid=kb;en-us;328520

Also the hardware wizard leaves a lot to be desired. You forgot to include
no more support for ISA cards in the Documentation. No support for
Hardrives used in Windows 2000. What next you got up your sleeves? It's
been real.

Bob,

Irrespective of your post not actually being related to this topic I will
address it.
We have released an updated Windows XP to both the retail and OEM channels -
one that includes Service Pack 2.
This is the one of the most important security this is one of the most
important security releases we have ever done.
Once you are online and running SP2 you can then update your PC easily with
Windows Update to ensure you are always patched with the latest security
fixes etc.

That doesn't seem entirely true. I can't seem to get Windows Update to
actually load and run the "checker" applet and I'll be damned if I can
figure out what restriction is pertinent that I seem to have "set" somewhere
other than under Tools/Security tab.

So "easily" certainly doesn't apply here :)

It is also possible that you are using an earlier beta of Netscape 8.0
or AOL's new browser, which ostensibly contained the ability to
properly use Windows Update, but both of which actually handled
ActiveX very poorly.

I too experienced the improper working of Windows Update when I first
installed either of these products. However, after starting Windows
Update from within Internet Explorer, I had no problems updating.

The Update web sites needs to install an Active X control to allow us to
work. Ensure you are using Internet Explorer and check your Active X
security settings. A default install does not have a problem (you see the
bar at the top of IE telling you to accept the install of the control etc) -
so it is likely that some setting you have changed is the cause of your
problem.

Well all it takes is a little bit of reasoning. To assume a statement in a
KB article that says they are working on an issue from a no longer supported
product implies it is being supported. No come on. If it is not supported
why then do anymore work on it? It is no longer supported end of story.
Now in this case the product IS still supported and so my reasoning may be
flawed. That is why I asked you to give me one example where such a
statement as this in a KB article ever saw the light of day again. One
example is all I ask. I know of none.

It is not an applet but a ActiveX. You need to enable all the signed
ActiveX in IE Security. Why don't you just try enabling everything there
for the life of the Windows Update site? Reboot. Then go to Windows Update
from the Help and Support. If there is something you are missing it should
tell you that. It was easy as cake for Windows XP SP2.

Have reset all security options to "default" and when that didn't work, also
added "*.microsoft.om" to trusted sites list. I've been thru every "item"
under Computer Management etc. to no avail.

What I get is the little pop-bar in IE telling me my security settings
"don't allow running active X ...", that's after the prompt to download and
another to install. I'll be damned if I know where it's picking the
restriction up from.

What you have is a situation peculiar to your machine, as others have
rightfully indicated the fix for
the problem you describe. If it fails to correct the problem on *your*
computer, then *your* computer has other issues that need to be fixed.

What you are describing is not *a major flaw* in Windows XP. I have well
over 200 machines in my workplace, and all of them are able to install the
AcitveX app and use WU.

Perhaps you should be pointing the finger somewhere else...

I told him to enable all the ActiveX and see if that helps. That is not the
default. In fact I suggest enabling everything in IE security till he can
get it worked out. Just doing that for the update site in no way puts him
in any harm. But in fact with the Automatic notification we have he doesn't
need to go to the update site at all. But the Automatic Update only gives
us Critical Updates.

I came in on this thread late so forgive me if you already been asked

Geez bud, wasn't pointing any finger anywhere. Simply pointing out that not
everyone seems to fall into the "easy update" scenario mentioned previously.
I've reset to defaults, gone thru admin templates etc. to insure nothing
seems out of the order there etc. etc. PC works fine otherwise, e.g. runs
number of compilers, Autocad, Photoshop and a couple of other "heavy end"
apps as well as all the games I've thrown at it including Doom3 etc. All
hardware works as expected, e.g. DVD burns, hd's and CD/DVD running highest
"UDMA" they support. Surround audio, tv-out/dual-monitor works, plays, rips
and encodes video with np etc. etc. USB works, nic etc. etc.

Personally I couldn't give a damn if Update works or not. It does "po" me
that MS more or less provides no other means of obtaining what one wants,
specifically straight forward old ftp and txt files documenting everything.
It also seems somehow wrong to me that one's "expected" to purchase a known
faulty product and has to spend one's own time and effort to get it fixed.
However, it's more a curiosity at this point in time that I can't seem to
figure out what "setting" is actually causing the behaviour. I'm on dialup
(external modem, can see leds) and pay enough attention that worms, trojans,
dialers, attachments etc. etc. haven't been a problem so far (knock on wood)
having been "stupid" (hurt big time) once 20+ years ago putting a floppy in
:) 

I use another pc for everything I consider private and important.

If I get bored enough I might check out what happens if I create another
"admin" user and retry. Seeing as no-one seems to have any other suggestions
to try first.

Nope.

Specific problem is when IE trys to run the downloaded ActiveX. The
pop-blocker notifier "info bar" pops up saying that running ActiveX controls
has been disabled ...

Security is set to default and even added "*.microsoft.com" to trusted sites
list, no diff.

Trying now ...

First message is "info bar popping up" stating ...

"To help protect your security, Internet Explorer stopped this site from
installing an ActiveX control on your computer. Click here for options ..."

So I click and select "Install ActiveX Control"

Second "info bar ..." stating ...

"Your security settings do not allow web sites to use ActiveX controls
installed on your computer. This page may not display correctly. Click here
for options ..."

So I click and only option is "Information Bar Help".

It does get boring after awhile.

I've also seen this when you don't add the proper location to the
Trusted Zone - many sites actually connect to other locations for files
and data - but it's not suppose to be that way with MS.

I've also seen this when you have a Firewall setup to block active-x and
do content filtering.

f
I'll tell you what: YOU first give me ONE documented example
(documented by Microsoft) that they are lying to the public when they
say they are working on something, since YOU are the one making the
accusations.

By the way: Microft's database of technical articles it has on file
goes WAY back, even including articles about unsupported products.

Obviously, common sense says that if the product is no longer
supported, Microsoft engineers are PROBABLY no longer working on the
issues.

But YOU are accusing Microsoft (or giving the impression) that they
are ALWAYS lying when they announce that they are working on an issue.

Maybe you should modify your accusation a little, to reflect the
actual truth: If Microsoft says an issue is being followed up and
worked on when the product is still supported, chances are they ARE
still working on it, but have not yet found a satisfactory solution.

Many programming problems are EXTREMELY hard to fix, especially when
you are trying to insert a patch into millions of lines of code., and
the patch may depend on hundreds or even thousands of other modules
and files.

Let me quote you from a previous post in this thread:
(From one of your replies to me on Sept 6, 2005, at 1:09 PM)
"You are wrong. If Microsoft says they are working on the issue you
can bet your bottom dollar it has been forgotten. Would you like to
see a Knowledge Base article that discusses an issue in MS-DOS or in
Internet Information Services 2.0 or Windows NT 3.51 that says the
exact same thing? No you wouldn't because you think I am making it
all up. Well so you say."

This surely looks to me as if you are making a BLANKET statement that
"if Microsoft says they are working on the issue you can bet your
bottom dollar it has been forgotten." Since you do not modify your
statement to only characterize unsupported products, I can only take
you at your own words.

As I said in my last post, it is only common sense that if an article
was entered into the Knowledge Base before a product was declared
"Unsupported", and it is no longer supported, it goes without saying
that they probably stopped working on that issue. Although we don't
really know that they have truly stopped working on even a product
which is no longer supported, since we could only know that if
Microsoft themselves said that the issue was no longer being worked
on.

Also, many older issues are continuing to be worked on in the newer
product lines, because the issues are ones which are universal to
versions of one or more of Microsoft's software products.

Again, you cannot say with any authority that "if Microsoft says they
are working on the issue, they are lying.", since you are not privy to
what goes on in the Microsoft software labs. In addition, such a
statement can easily fit the legal definition of "slander", since you
have made this statement in a public forum with the intention of
causing harm to Microsoft's reputation.

If Microsoft wanted to, they could bring you before a court of law,
and take everything you have if they won the case.

I seriously doubt that Microsoft will do that, since you really do
very little harm with your baseless accusations, other than rile up a
few Microsoft bashers and other weak-minded users. However, you are
spreading "FUD" among new and marginal users, and users with little or
no knowledge of computers and software. This is never good. Instead,
you should be giving them accurate knowledge, so they can come
up-to-speed on XP, and properly maintain their installations.

You would have known I meant unsupported when I gave you a list of
unsupported software. You need to do some background on Microsoft's
software products over the years. Then you would know that articles that
say they are working on the issue in Knowledgebase articles about
unsupported software puts the onus on Microsoft to make a distinction
between software that is unsupported but they are "still looking into it" or
unsupported and they are no longer "looking into it."

You don't seem to see the ditinction that's OK. When Microsoft puts the
same wording in software that they are currently supporting this loss of
distinction raises questions about the veractiy of what is neing said.

I asked you to give me one example of a Knowledge base article that had the
wording at the end "Microsoft is looking into it" for which a new or same
article came out furthering information on what was previously said. Just
one.
