    InstallNotepad2 script doesn't work

    Hallo everyone,

    After running the script I see In the Windows Map the files:
    notepad.original.exe and also notepad.exe but notepad.exe is the original Windows Vista notepad text editor and not the "notpad2" one.
    I see the same files in Windows\system32 as in the Windows map.:(

    Problems with Vista Ultimate in domain

    :(
    I have tried with no success to perform this same feat on my work laptop. I just can't seem to get access to the System32 copy of notepad.exe. I think it has something to do with my role in our domain.

    Did you run it as administarator?

    "save to .bat file and run as administrator (right click menu)"

    If you just double click .bat file it won't work even if you have administrator rights with your user. At least if I remember correctly. Long time since I tried this last time :)

    And also if you tried it on win7 make sure you had the modified version from my earlier post. Original .bat didn't work with win7 beta/RC/(final?).

    What is the bcdedit line for ( I left it out, and seems ok)

    3/3/10 date of my post... I left out the bcdedit line because I could not easily research what this would do. Also not comfortable with editing boot-related "stuff". But everything seems to work just fine without this line.

    Anyone see any problems with leaving out the bcdedit line in the install script?
