NMService off in 1420 on in 1430 Are Policies Reset??

Recommended Posts

I installed 1420 on several machines and I am having problems with standard users using the software. I will need to update to 1430 but I want to make sure that the policies are changed back to there default settings.

In 1430 do you change the policies back to the default???

Thanks.

Secondly, the NMSAccess service for device access from limited user accounts is no longer installed, instead, two group policy settings are modified (allocatecdroms = 1, allocatedasd = 2). So if you install the new version, it attempts to uninstall the service. Preferably you check that this step actually worked (Start->Run->services.msc), because no setup packages will include install/uninstall feature for this service anymore.

Only allocatecdroms is set. The other one hasn't caused seriosu problems so far and since I don't know for what reason "allocatedasd = 2" might be on your system, I prefer not to change it back everytime running the setup.

It is just the before 1420 install everything worked perfectly. I would like to make sure any changes 1420 did to the systems are changed back to before the 1420 install. Some systems had no software installed others were upgraded.

I would like to make sure that the 1430 version changes settings back to the settings before 1420 since everything worked so well. I don't want to install the 1430 version then find out the polices remain and I still have issues. I don't want to visit the machines more than once.

If the 1430 does not change them back let me know and I will script a change if you don't want to change the installer. No big issue just trying to save time, and or possible problems.

Are these changes in:

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\Winlogon

Thanks!!
