Lightbulb Alert for Microsoft Windows XP users: Service Pack2

New security in Service Pack 2 affects the Help systems of most Adobe products.

As an aside, I have heard of other people having trouble with their systems after attempting to install then uninstall SP2. I recommend avoiding SP2 in the first place until other guinea pigs like me report a safer solution.

Barew!

I think all this is part of what M$oft calls "different behaviours" of programs installed.

What happened to me was the following:

I have a small home network with 4 PCs, all having Internet access through one of them, let's call it Comm, using Wingate v5.0.10.848 without VPN, and not ICS.

A couple of weeks ago I've installed SP2 on Comm, and besides some little annoyances (about Windose Firewall, and automatic updates, very good for MS, but not for me) which I bypassed easily, everything went smoothly.

So I decided to install SP2 on a second computer (call it Things). Installation successful, bypassed the little problems already known from Comm, and her I go to checking the Internet connection. The Wingate client couldn't find the server. Don't worry! Uninstall and re-install! No chance! Received a message stating that while I had ICS and/or Windose Firewall running (I had disabled the last one and hadn't touched in ICS's configuration when installing SP2). Managed to de-activate ICS in Things, and install Wingate client. Surprise!
Wingate client is unable to see the server, and worst... I've lost the local network connection.

So I go back to SP1 in Things (made an image with Drive Image before "upgrading"), so that things will run normally again... without any "different behaviour"...

I'm waiting for seeing if some newer version of Wingate could behave as Gate$ wants!

Cheers!

Red Stone!

It gives an impression that you are running AMD 64 on both server and client PCs? BTW, have you contacted their tech support? What did they say?

As to Adobe issues, it may just be part of the ongoing war between Adobe and MS; their applications have been overwriting each others' font filenames in the Windows registry for years.

BTW, here's an MS Knowledge Base article on programs known to live through a loss of functionality when they run on a Windows XP Service Pack 2-based computer:

Hi Hrach_Techie!

Thanks for replying!
Yes they are both AMD (who wants to pay more for something that worths less?), but no, they are not 64 bit. And only the client doesn't work right while under SP2. The server works perfectly. The other two PCs have both SP1 in one config and Win98 in another one, and connect perfectly to the Internet through the same server. So...

Let's wait and see...

Cheers!
