AVG 8.5 just came out, can someone make a custom installer package for it to work on server 2008 please?
edit: nm I got it working, the same method I used before worked on it.
where do you put that cab file? I downloaded the 64 bit version of Dream Scene that you linked too and would like to get it working in server 2008 standard 64 bit.
Nice! Glad you got it sorted ^_^
If it isn’t too much trouble, it’d be great if you could EDIT the original post, and in the subject box, add a [SOLVED] to the end of it (so it reads like “DVD Burner Problem. [SOLVED]” in the forums). Just makes the place a bit cleaner looking 😉 Good day!
well success, I finally got a SATA DVD Burner, my problem with reading dual layer disks has been solved, Server 2008 just didn’t like my old 16X NEC IDE DVD Burner, I bought a 22X Sony Optiarc SATA for $25 wth free shipping from newegg.
DVD drives are extremely touchy with power supplies. Your PSU might be struggling to provide clean power.
Not sure if you know much about this stuff, but i recommend trying to put your DVD on it’s own power rail. Or even try rigging up a temporary second ATX PSU if you can’t do that, just with the soft-on pin shorted so it’s always on and have all ur gear spewed out on the workbench 😛 Or… get a new PSU, one that’s a reputable brand such as Antec 😉
i say this because I encountered extremely similar issues with my Pioneer DVD burner and found out that my PSU was the culprit [after months of dealing with the annoyance]. Hope that helps – let me know.
P.S. Don’t be so quick to dismiss hardware susceptibility just because one OS does it but another doesn’t – Windows XP is very VERY different to Windows Vista/2008 at the kernel level [example – the Hardware Abstraction Layer was completely overhauled for the better, despite initial driver incompatibilites] and it’s more than natural for newer, more modern OS’s to present higher and/or more “streamlined” load on components – simply because it’s newer technology and naturally more efficient on a per-cycle level :geek:
I think its just a compatibility problem with IDE DVD Burners is all since its a Newer OS, I plan to get a SATA DVD burner soon so I think that will solve the issue. they are mega cheap anyway. I know its not my PSU 😛 it wouldn’t make sense because everything works on it except for reading dual layer DVD’s 😛
Thanks for the help anyway 😉
download .net Framework 3.5 and install it
should fix your problem
thanks guys for the solution, I will try this fix 😀
Edit: Success! that DLL file worked perfectly.
The game runs like crap on my system though 🙁
AMD 4200+ dual core 2.2Ghz, 2GB DDR, 320MB 8800 GTS and I get 15 – 20fps at 1024×768, Lowest Detail.
I get the same problem =(
I hope someone can make a fix for this! I’ve waited months to play this game.
Has anyone tried Grand Theft Auto 4 yet? does it work in Server 2008 64-Bit
thanks! this will make it easier for future server 2008 installs 😀6th November 2008 at 02:34 in reply to: "gameux.dll" automatic installer for Windows Server 2008 #47591
just use Steam to handle the game short cuts, its what I use 😉 no messy desktop or start menu
Open Steam and click on Add Non Steam Game button, and browse to the EXE location of the game to add it4th November 2008 at 01:15 in reply to: "gameux.dll" automatic installer for Windows Server 2008 #47588
what is the big deal with games explorer? all my games work fine without it
if you get the Games Explorer couldn’t be found error, just set them to windows XP compatibility mode.
explorer.exe not starting on Boot is caused by the third party theme DLL being installed with the server 2008 converter, I had the same problem.
so don’t install the third party theme DLL and you will be fine.
K-Lite Codec Pack 4.2.5 has no problems installing, don’t use 3.8.0
Also since Nero 7 and 8 have issues on Server 2008, what burning software do you guys recommend thats compatible with it ?
I’m using Windows Server 2008 Standard 32 bit
Vista Drivers (and even some XP drivers depending on the hardware) will work fine on Server 2008
for example I installed the XP drivers to a very old sound card and it Blue Screened on me, so I had to enable the onboard sound of my motherboard and thankfully the XP drivers from it worked.
also don’t be afraid of the warning popups for unsigned drivers, install them anyway
