Where would I be able to download the original "logonui.exe" for Windows XP? Thanks in advance.
From yours (or somebody else's) i386 folder, perhaps?
Is there any sub-folders do I have to look in? Or is it just there?
Idunno', I don't have that folder on my current install, but I do know it contains the windows installation files.
Okay, I think I found it, but its a "EX_" file. How do I change it (beside from renamimg it)?
It wont let me. It only lets me rename the "file name", not the "file type".
Go into your folder settings, to the view settings, and UNcheck "hide extensions for known types", then you can edit the extensions of everything.
renaming is not enough.
Files with the underscore in the extension are compressed with the MSDos 5.x CABinet archive format.
You have to "uncab" the file.
Cab.exe and uncab.exe should be also present in your i386 folder.
Just drag/drop the .EX_ on uncab.exe.
It could also be expand.exe instead of uncab.exe.
So all i have too do is drag/drop the "logonui.EX_" file on expand.exe (thats whats there)?
Yup, you have to do expand. uncab should work too, but I haven't ever done that with uncab, always used expand. Actually, I dunno if dragging it upon expand.exe is enough.
In that case, it'd be better to use your Command Prompt, and do this in the dir where's the .ex_ file.
"expand logonui.ex_ logonui.exe" (hopefully it isn't in the same directory where's the other logonui.exe).
After that, you can replace your old logonui with the new one.
Though if that doesn't work (or if renaming seems to suffice after all), google "take ownership" and you'll come across a nice little program that'll add a take ownership option to your right-click menu.
EDIT: it seems that uncabbing/expanding is needed. The tak ownership program will still be handy in some other cases though XD
"Documents and Settings" folder is "Users" in Vista/Windows 7.
EDIT:Is there any other way to get the original "logonui.exe"? Just asking.
The real answer is reinstall Windows XP from beginning if you have a Installation CD.
Fuck no. That undoes potentially years of security patches.
Uh, yeah. I'm too used to copy things locally in a dir, then go in it with the prompt and do simple commands like those
Well, there's always Google, but you can't be certain of what you're REALLY downloading.
