      ***On a side note after enabling Superfetch I had problems with diskcheck functioning correctly + slower performance, but maybe its just my pc.

      ***Also I had problems with copying file/s from one partition to another where the file/s would be finished copying with 0 seconds to go but the file copy screen would hang for a couple more seconds.

      ***I haven’t had any speed/connection problems concerning with torrents although i have been getting the infamous “event id 4226”. Well not 4226 but event id 4227. I tried using the latest tcpip patch but I continue to get the error… shrugs*

      On a endnote; I basically had this same system setup as I did with Vista SP1 and these are some things I’ve noticed.

      a) Boot up is almost identical maybe 5 – 10 seconds longer (max) on Server 08

      b) Shutdown time is amazingly quick on Server 08 (under 10 seconds)

      c) Although Vista SP1 is snappy I feel Server 08 is a little snappier.

      d) No crashes yet though I never had any crashes with Vista (except when installing ZoneAlarm)…

      e) All my drivers worked and are functioning correctly. I simply installed Vista Ultimate 32bit edition drivers for any that did not supply one specifically Server 08.

      f) The number of UAC popups have significantly decreased. It wasn’t until I got the installation errors that I noticed it was on. But even after disabling & reinstalling I still received those errors above. (The Nero 8 one anyway)

      TrueSpace 3d does not work well on S2008WS. It crashes and when you try to move your 3d model it “blanks out” and you cannot see your model anymore. (Using NVGF8800GT)

      wings3d, anim8or, Misfit model 3d, K3d are working on S2008 so far.

    • #45924

      I didn’t see them listed, but Inbit Messanger and Ventrilo both work with x86 Server 2008. (I use both of them for work so it was important to me anyhow.)

    • #45923

      ventrillo is working fine on s2008x64 vocaloid is also working.

    • #45922

      Not sure if this has been posted, but the Combined Community Codec Pack (CCCP) works fine as well.

      It refuses to install sying that the direct X version is not high enough, and to download and install it from the website. tried that, and it still refused to install.

        Try to apply the dmusic.inf fix. I expect it will work after that while on my pc I tried the Demo version (aP6.1_13Langs_VistaXP2K_6.1.4.15_1561.exe) and it works fine! 🙂
