Upgrading Vista when using Windows XP Service Pack 2
- TAC Vista Server
- Windows XP SP 2
If you upgrade the version of Vista on a properly working machine you will be required to repeat some of the steps.
TPI C-88-1-F57 indicates the steps needed to make Vista run on a Windows XP SP 2 operating system. However if you upgrade the version of Vista on a properly working machine you will be required to repeat some of these steps.
The first step you will need to repeat is the exclusion of Vista Server (TACOS.exe) in the Windows Firewall detailed in step 3 found in section 3 of the TPI. This is due to the fact that the installation of the latest versions of Vista includes the revision in the installation directory.
The second step is step 4 found in section 4 of the TPI. The DCOM settings for TACOS must be reconfigured to use default Launch and Activation Permissions. The reason for this is the same as described in section 7 of the TPI when configured Vista Server to run as a service or not.
