Hello, WMI problem again No after I've placed a new harddisk and install wxp pro instead of wxphome the WMI settings are oke now, thats wy I'll tell you. with greetings, Dutchie I’m sorry that I come again with the problem Earlier described in this forum. The latest solution I can get is this: http://support.microsoft.com/default.aspx?scid=kb;en-us;Q319101 I can’t no further than point 7 because the description of point 8 is no possible for me because their are no files in it. I’m very despaired, I don’t no how further. I’ve installed windows xp home edition again, but no results. I’ve read all the topics in this forum, but couldn’t find the hint for me. I get the message that’s not possible to install Fastprox.dll, during the installation of winxp I got the same error when I’ve installed W2k I've not any problem with the rest of the installation so I think it’s not a problem of the cd-rom software but something at the hardware, but what? The Pc x86 family 6 model 8stepping 10 256 mb ram IDE-CD r/rw 8x4x32 I’ve done all the hints describe in this forum. -I can’t see anything of the WMI options -I’ve check services if windows management services are started, yes -I can't see anything of msinfo32 -I’ve tried to ask it Microsoft, but I have to pay €50 for one question because I’ve the OEM version. Please can you tell me if it is possible to resolve this problem? Or not? Is their an other solution for me? Thank you for reading again this problem, I hope to get an answer. With kindly regard from holland. I use Windows xp home edition with SP1.
