So, i had the tools for winxp and they worked fine until sp1 patch....after they stoped working for what ever reason. My beef here is that i cant re-install the tools any longer...while tryig to install the tools, the installer gives me an error saying that the tools only work with an older version of windows...quite extrange but thats what it says. Any how, my question is, does anyone have a link to the MS site where you can download the administrative tools for xp? I want to test and see if a re install will solve my problems. thanks a lot for the help here.
