Fix for Dimension 4 software
when using Windows XP.
This may also apply to Windows 2000 and Windows NT not sure.
If you run Windows XP you will find
that Dimension 4 PC automatic time sync
will no longer work. It has a conflict with the SNTP ucb port that windows XP
uses for it's once a week time sync.
The once a week time sync feature is in control panel/date time.
Anyway here is how you turn the windows XP time sync off so
will work normally.
Go to Control Panel/Date and Time/Internet Time tab.
Be sure "automatically synchronize with an internet time server" is NOT checked
2. Go To Control
3. In services pick WINDOWS TIME . Right click for properties.
STARTUP TYPE change to DISABLE. Then click SERVICE STATUS =
STOP. "NEXT click OK"
Note - Good idea to then re-boot PC and double check
that the changes you made actually
were saved correctly
FYI: This is the exe that would run normally for windows XP time sync.
C:\WINDOWS\System32\svchost.exe -k netsvcs
You can reverse the process anytime if you like. Of course if you
Dimension 4 won't work again.
