Advanced XP Pro Books?



Are there any (available) books for advanced configuration of XP?

For example: (excerpt from a single chapter of an XP book)

Part IV: Advanced Techniques and Troubleshooting
Chapter 24: HTML and VBScript
Chapter 25: DHTML and VBScript
Chapter 26: VBScript and Windows XP Professional
Chapter 27: The Windows Scripting Host
Chapter 28: Installing and Supporting New Hardware
Chapter 29: Fixing Windows XP Professional When It Breaks
Chapter 30: Understanding and Using the Registry
Chapter 31: Administrative and Diagnostic Tools
Chapter 32: Additional Customization Options
Chapter 33: Advanced Troubleshooting Methodology

I'd like a book that goes in depth on just these areas. Thanks.


Well, generally your Chapters 24-26 have nothing to do with a specific can find TONS of HTML/VBS/DHTML references online...for VBS related to XP, start with the MS knowledgebase and go from there. Same thing for the Windows Scripting Host. I'm not sure though if WSH is even supported in XP. Haven't tried to use it yet...The other stuff you may have to wait until XP has major problems to report on...otherwise, any 2k and/or 9x troubleshooting book that covers these topics should suffice.


XP should support WSH since this excerpt is from from a "Mastering Windows XP" book. Then again I havn't bought it yet :)

Yea I probably should wait till at least the 2nd quarter of this year for more books to be released as not many people have as yet delved deep into XP.


Heres a couple of books :

They are free but they are very good

Hey EP! All good with me, applying for Microsoft MVP right now, should have done this a while ago.

Notifications don't work, I only found your response by coming back to hunt up some threads, if you want, give me your email address so we can keep in touch easier!

EP, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS

Been running around Quora lately, luv it there!
