    I'm having a problem running the ConnectComputer Wizard on a Win XP Pro
    This client is a re-format of disk & XP OEM reinstall, this machine was
    connected to the
    Windows 2003 SBS P.E. SP2 W/ISA 2004 SP2 server a week ago and worked fine.
    It is being reinstalled from scratch to be used in a different Dept.

    The problem with the Wizard is that it does not install the Four Client
    Applications chosen:

    - Client Operating System Service Packs
    - Internet Explorer 6.0
    - Microsoft Office Outlook 2003 (Service Pack 1)
    - Shared Fax Client

    When I click on the Connect Computer link, the Security Warning splash
    screen pops up and says:
    Do you want to Install and Run "Windows Small Business Server 2003 with
    Service Pack 1"

    I click yes and the wizard runs and I enter a Administrator account user
    name & password, it
    continues on and I select the approved user name accounts and client
    computer name from the lists.
    I continue and the wizard does a reboot, I log-In with the user acct. that
    was given Admin desktop
    Current User Settings during the wizard setup. When the desktop comes up,
    the Application Setup
    splash screen for installing the client Apps chosen above does not appear. I
    have reinstalled the OS
    and run the Wizard Three times without success. The only thing it does is
    connect the client to the
    domain, no Service Packs, no Client Apps, no internet connection in IE.

    I don't know what logs to look for to tell me what is going wrong, so any
    help would be gratefully
    appreciated. If you need more info please let me know.

    Thanks in advance.

    I'm fairly new to SBS 2003 after having been on SBS 2000 for several years.
    But thus far, none of my client apps come up in the old SBS 2000-style splash
    screen where the user gets prompted to install. Instead, the client install
    process creates a icon on the desktop for each requested application. Look
    for an icon that looks like an opening package and labeled with the name of
    the requested app. The user has to double-click the icon to initiatate the
    install process. I missed this the first time I did a client setup and was
    also mistakenly thinking that the client app setup wasn't running correctly.
