Hi,

One of collegue changed the setting in my computer which is running on Windows 2000 Professional. Now when I am trying to install Bluetooth device drivers, it is terminating the process when it comes to install for Bluetooth network adapter. The user is in Adminstrators group but can't install bluetoth network adapters. How can I resolve the problem without re-installing windows?

While clicking on Internet Protocol in Network connections, the properties button is also disabled. user is still having the Administrators group. How can I rectify these errors?


Regards,

Sreeram

Maybe the group policy has been changed. If your not sure about editing the group policy can you get your collegue to put it back?

If you can get into regedit, post the settings under:
HKCU\software\policies\microsoft
HKCU\software\microsoft\policies
HKCU\software\microsoft\windows\currentversion\policies

and under the same under HKLM instead of HKCU

*HKCU= HKEY_CURRENT_USER
*HKLM=HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE

Hi,

I am sorry because I could not respond to your suggestion. I am attaching herewith registry entries as you specified.

Rgs,

Changing the following registry entries should fix the Network properties problem, and might help with the Bluetooth issue:
[HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Policies\Microsoft\Windows\Network Connections]
"NC_LanProperties"=dword:00000001
"NC_ChangeBindState"=dword:00000001
"NC_AllowAdvancedTCPIPConfig"=dword:00000001
Open regedit and change the values of these items to zero.
If this is a group policy restriction, they will almost certainly be reset when you login, but changing them should allow you to access the network configuration, and install the bluetooth drivers.

The NC_AllowAdvancedTCPIPConfig and NC_LanProperties restrict what you can do from a connections properties. The NC_ChangeBindState may be what's interfering with the Bluetooth install.

Usual caveats about messing with the registry apply.

Hi tsws,

No change at all. I dont' know how to proceed. Is there any freeware registry tweak utility for handling network issues?

Rgs,

Sorry for not having got back to you sooner :thumbsup: Been busy so lost track of the post.
I don't know of any utilities that you could use to fix this, but that doesn't mean that there aren't any.
I'll try and dig around the GP and user rights settings and see what I can find, but it might be a couple of days before I have time.

Hope that's not a problem, (and feel free to jump in with other suggestions)

Try using one of these bits of software to re-assign all rights (NOT ANY OF THE DENY ENTRIES) to your account
http://www.download32.com/local-account-manager-i25037.html
http://www.download32.com/user-management-...ion-i34897.html
(Tops shareware, bottoms freeware)

Also check the driver signing settings.

Otherwise, I'm out of suggestions.
Pob lwc,
