    Re: USBDLM V3.3 - USB Drive Letter Manager for Windows 2000,

    Hello again!

    I'm a newbie in GPO. Can anyone please give me a complete guide on how to install usbdlm through GPO?

    Thanks!

    Re: USBDLM V3.4 - USB Drive Letter Manager for Windows 2000,

    Thank you for the script, but I'm still having problems.

    When I tested it on my machine where I had manually installed the usbdlm with administrator rights earlier, the script worked without any problems.

    When I tested it on a machine with a user without any local privileges, it didn't.

    It seems like the command in _install.bat has to be executed once on the machines with local administrative rights before the script is working. (The service has to running, before the process can start?)

    What can I do to get the whole thing automatized so I don't have to do this manually one time on every single computer? Is it possible to make another script for GPO which checks if the right service is running, if not start it? Something similar to the script for the process?

    Re: USBDLM V3.4 - USB Drive Letter Manager for Windows 2000, XP

    You have to download the msi version of the software and then deploy this using a group policy object. This will then install it on your machines with the relevant priveleges.

    After that you use the script provided as a login script or machine startup script to copy the updated file to the machines.

    Otherwise you could run the install using a machine startup script this will then install it with system priveleges.

    Re: USBDLM V3.4 - USB Drive Letter Manager for Windows 2000,

    I have now tried to deploy the .msi by GPO under computer configuration-software settings-software installation without any luck.

    When I reboot the machine, I can't see the usbdlm.exe either as a process or a service. That means that it has not installed properly, right?

    Is it something that I've forgotten to do?

    If a GPO deployment of a MSI has failed, there will be a error logged from the source 'Application Management' in the Application Event Log explaining what broke.

    Re: USBDLM V3.4 - USB Drive Letter Manager for Windows 2000,

    I finally managed to deploy the .mis-file with GPO. It was user rights on the file-server which caused the problems I had earlier.

    Thank alot for the help guys! This will save me a hole lot of time.

    Side note guys, you can use the registry instead of the ini file. So just use the gpo to deliver the msi and set the appropriate registry entries.

    Oh and seeing as PolicyMaker Registry extention is the only easy way to set registry entries you might want to know that if you have IE7 installed on the machine(s) running GPMC then the policymaker part will crash.

    Took me AGES to figure this one out, even searching the web, workaround here http://www.desktopstandard.com/kb/article.aspx?id=10569

    Re: USBDLM V3.4 - USB Drive Letter Manager for Windows 2000, XP

    Bah, I keep thinking of things.

    One really handy thing I found is setting Letter1 to E, Letter2 to F and then Letter3 to -

    This means thatit will mount the first 2 sticks used, but not mount any more.

    Also handy to set Letter1 to - for those damned U3 cddrives

    Hello All,

    I am very new here and as you might have guess that our school is also having so much trouble with all sort of usb drives that are used by teachers and students. Now, I found a light with usbdlm. I wonder if any kind soul can point me on how to obtain .msi package for usbdlm and script that guys mention about. I thank you in advance. This usb thing is driving me crazy.....


    Thanks,

    Henry
