  • It isn't working... I believe XP doesn't use Folder.HTT file at all...
  • Did you copy folder.htt AND desktop.ini over?

    -Q
  • There is no desktop.ini there.
  • Hmm! Then I'm not really sure... What exactly were you trying to do in the 1st place, I forgot to find out...

    -Q
  • If someone tells me how to do that and it will work, then I may start to use Windows Server 2003...
  • well nLite may be able to make XP decent enough for some to use... I'll have to hack and slash it and see what happens.
    I started without you. I had to reinstall Service Pack 2, downloaded
    .NET Framework, extracted the XP ISO to a new file, downloaded
    nLite and began. Here's the first look:

    Thanks for going to my site. Yeah I got vision problems and
    was trying a new way of setting the font that would work in
    Firefox and Mozzila which weren't working well for me. I
    guess I over did it a bit.
    I'm an excellent driver but I can no longer see beyond the
    windshield.

    God Tom, you CAN be a LITTLE less rude about it... you could have been like "Im assuming you cant see well" or something... that would have definately been more polite...
  • That's all right, I wasn't offended.
    I've got nLite safe installed on the Microtel and it used 1.6 GB.
    How can I find out how much ram it's using?
    Start-Programs-Accessability-System Tools has no System
    Information. I bet it's not using much.

  • Sorry that was me. I had to crash again to use ISO Recorder
    since it won't work for me with Service Pack 2 and I came unlogged.

    I suppose. I was merely shocked at the hugeness of the fonts. I wasn't even aware that was possible. :-|

    Sorry, I made a mistake here. It is using 1.16 GB of hard
    drive space. I still don't remember how to find out how much
    ram it's using. Q told me how once with Windows 2000 but I
    can't remember.
    I don't have a browser or music player. I really like I.E. so
    this didn't do me much good there. I'll probably put a copy
    of Netscape on there for the composer and I may just try
    Firefox for a little while, and maybe the Off By One browser.

  • How much RAM is in use TOTAL? Like, all your programs? That would be looking at the task manager information, but to check Windows alone, I dont know :-|

    Yeah that was it. It don't work though on this nLite and it just
    weighs 15 KBS. Oh well it can't be using much, I clicked Add/Remove
    and there was nothing there and there's no programs installed.
    I do have Internet Explorer though, 6.0. I'm going to put the
    drivers on now and see how much bigger it gets. I'm going to
    have to get cursors first so I can use the large mouse pointeres.
    I'm going to put it online later today and see how it does and
    maybe take it to PCPitstop.

    I'm aborting. It's using less than 64 MBS of ram 'cause I
    checked that during install and it's less than satisfactory.
    600X480 resolution and 16 bit color and won't change.
    I'm going to install again.

  • A severely nLite'd Windows 2000 SP4 install had a commit charge of about 33,000 KB. The "Commit Charge" is the value you see at the bottom of Task Manager.

    ~33 MB isn't all that bad LOL
  • I've reinstalled and it wasn't during install I set it to run on
    64 MBS, it was during the creation of the ISO.
    It's working fine but I haven't installed the drivers 'cause
    it blew up the last time I did. I'll have to install the
    chipset drivers because it won't install anything else until
    I do and then install the NIC before it can get on the net.
    This version of "Safe" I selected when I made the ISO is
    fine for someone with an old underpowered machine but
    doesn't serve my purpose which is to install it on a new low
    powered machine with at least 128 MBS of ram. I'm not
    going to go through with it again right now since I have to
    crash each time I make one and burn it. If I had more
    hard drive space I could make several different ones first
    and then crash and burn them all one by one. I've got to
    take some time out and fix this main machine right away.
    It's the only one I have with a burner.

    I don't mind betraying my ignorance. What's that?
    Ram size needed for an unaltered XP?
    Anyway I'll make one later that will work on a $200 dollar
    Microtel from Walmart with 128 MBS of ram, even though
    I have 256 MBS now.

    Thats where I saw that number... I dont know what it means, but Tomchu mentioned that "Commit Charge"....
  • Commit Charge is the total physical + virtual memory that is allocated to all running programs + the OS.
  • So, in that picture, is 312M FREE, or 312M IN USE?
  • 312 MB in use, out of a possible total of 1562 MB.

    Last time I saw that so high using my ugly Longhorn...
  • Uhhh... its high because I have alot of RAM.
  • And keep in mind that includes the PROGRAMS too. Fish runs ALOT of stuff, @least some of which could be classified as memory intensive.

    -Q
  • apache and mysql use a LOT of ram.......
  • SETI@home, Apache (TONS OF RAM), MySQL (TONS OF RAM), Trillian, AIM, FTP, DNS updater, SigX, Windows Uptime, MotherBoard Monitor 5, then FireFox and Word are open most of the time...
  • A 312 MB Commit Charge is very reasonable for the amount of crap Tim's got running. Especially Apache, after I introduced him to MMCache, and MySQL, after I gave him my tweaked my.ini file.
