      Updated format, colors, added applications, and added Word and PDF documents for download.

      If Logon Studio doesn’t work how can you change that blue logon screen? 😐 I don’t like it. I want to change it but it doesn’t work. I changed imageres.dll from c:Windowssysten32……. but remains unchanged. How should I do to change the logon screen.


      I have Windows Server 2008 x64 installed on my system and it rocks.

    • #45604

      The answer is simple – you cant 🙂 Ok, maybe you can, but we haven’t found way to do it yet – i searched alot in the registry, imageres.dll and other files but still nothing..There must be some settings in the core for each OS type – for example the logon background is still in imageres.dll, but its not even used from there.If you use the vista crack, the server manager and other server-related functions doesnt work, so your OS is still Server 2008, but its recognized as workstation type and the logon background looks just like vista.

      Just wanted to drop a line that Ultramon 3.02 works just fine on 2008 x64. Not sure if the person who listed it as not working was using x86 or not, though.

      Truecrypt 6.0 works fine on x64, too.

    • #45609

      I can also confirm Mobile Net Switch v3.71 works on Windows Server 2008 x64. Please see:

      Adobe Acrobat Pro 8 DOES NOT work in Server 2008 x64 if you try to print to PDF. It just hangs. There is a KB to fix this, but it doesn’t support Server 2008 x64 – it only works for Vista x64. Any ideas on how to install this fix on Server 2008 x64?


    • #45615

        Maybe you can apply the fix using the method described on the following page:
        Microsoft Technet Forums – “The update does not apply to your system”

      • #45616

        ACDsee pro 10.0.219 works, but it is unable to open jpeg2000 files, even though the appropriate plugin is installed. It simply says the “The source data format is not recognized”. It works just fine in Vista Ultimate x64.

          Yep, these applications are installed by default. As you can see in the List of Applications (x86), Yahoo Messenger is working fine and I expect it will also work fine on the x64 edition. In the Security Software compatibility list, there is a workaround to get AVG working on Windows Server 2008.

          Good luck installing Windows Server 2008! 😉

          My experiences with Burning Studio 2008 v 8.03: it seems that it only works in xp sp2 compat. mode., else it doesnt succeed to write the lead-out, it takes several minutes, but the burnt disc is a failure

          infrarecorder it starts, but it wont write to a blank disc.

          anybody else had similar problems?
