Problems connecting to a computer using RWW, IE7, and XP SP3

I’ve found that a lot of my users are starting to have issues connecting to Small Business Server Remote Web Workplaces, and I know how to fix it. The fix Is pretty annoying and fairly involved for a standard user, but I plan on creating a write-up (with pictures) to more easily explain how to fix this new problem on SP3 computers.

If you need help with it immediately, before I get the write-up completed, you may ask me in the comments section, or go online and do your own research.

When you use Remote Desktop Connection or the Terminal Services Client version 4.0 or 5.0 to connect to another Windows-based computer from a computer that is not running Windows Server 2003, your local printers may not be redirected. As a result, your local printers are not available in the remote desktop or terminal services session.

Slipstream Windows XP SP3 RC1 into Windows XP with SP2 CD

After slipstreamed and installed afresh, the version is Windows XP SP3 v.3244

Step-by-step guide

1. Create a folder on your c: drive – c:\xpsp3

2. Insert the Windows XP with SP2 CD, copy all folders and files to c:\xpsp3

3. Download and execute, windowsxp-kb936929-sp3-x86-enu-RC1.exe /integrate:c:\xpsp3

4. The Service Pack 3 RC1 has now been integrated into your Windows XP with SP2 CD in c:\xpsp3.

5. You can either burn the contents of the folder c:\xpsp3 to an ISO file for burning into CD
cdimage -lWXPSP3RC1 -bC:\XPBOOT.BIN -t12/27/2007;22:00:00 -g -h -j1 -o -oc -oi -yd -m C:\XPSP3 C:\WXPSP3RC1.ISO

Tools Required (I’m hosting the files for you)



3. windowsxp-kb936929-sp3-x86-enu-RC1.exe (free from Microsoft)

I just did this with a windows 2000 server slipstream too.

You just need to use the old method of slipstreaming (extract the service pack, then integrate the files).  Once that’s done, you can use the same CDIMAGE program to create a bootable ISO.  However, you’ll need to modify the string, like so:

cdimage -lW2KAVSP4 -bC:\BOOT.BIN -t05/13/2009;10:00:00 -g -h -j1 -o -oc -oi -yd -m C:\Win2k C:\W2KAVSP4.ISO

You’ll also need the windows 2000 boot.bin file (hosting it for you).

Happy slipstreaming!
