Vista x64 Server Execution Failed
As I wrote earlier, in My Continuing Story of 64-Bit Vista, I've been very happy with Vista x64.
After installation of SP1 though, there has been one nagging problem - the wireless notification in the systray didn't work. This is exclusively a problem with Vista x64 on service pack 1. It didn't happen on RTM and doesn't happen on any released version of Vista x32.
Every week or two, I troll the various Vista forums looking for solutions. Well, one appeared. I have no idea why this works, and I admit that I'm not 100% certain what possibly security holes this may open up, but this fixes the problem:
net localgroup "Administrators" "NT Authority\Local Service" /add
On my first guess - I doubt it adds any significant security risk. Add at your own risk, however!
Until next time...
