“net view” “System error 1231 has occurred.” “Windows 10”

Posted by jpluimers on 2020/11/09

On my research list: none of my Windows 10 PC’s in WORKGROUP can see that other machines exist, but they can connect to each other.

C:\>net view
System error 1231 has occurred.c

C:\>net view
System error 6118 has occurred.

On Windows 8.1 and 7 (I know: both beyond end-of-support) can see both Windows 8.1/7 machines and Windows 10 machines:

C:\>net view
Server Name          Remark
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
\\...
The command completed successfully.

It is unclear on which Windows 10 release this started failing. I think it is around 1803 (April 2018 Update) or 1709 (Fall Creators Update). It fails despite all settings indicating sharing and discovery are enabled:

Things tried that failed:

Start service WebClient

Tried from an administrative command prompt, then waited a minute:

C:\net start WebClient
The WebClient service is starting.
The WebClient service was started successfully.

Failed.

The system names were already in uppercase.

RDP logon while other user is logged on: no way to automate automatic disconnect/logoff

Posted by jpluimers on 2020/10/21

One of the dreaded things when logging on using RDP is that if another user is logged on, you have to first indicate you want to indeed logon (if you don’t, the RDP connection will close after some 15-30 seconds), then wait for their approval time-out before you can logon.

As of writing there is no way around this.

Some links that helped me conclude this:

Non-rectangle select in Windows command line – Super User

Posted by jpluimers on 2020/10/16

Just discovered this has been possible since Windows 10 by holding the shift key while dragging with the mouse. After like 20 years of waiting, why did nobody warn me (:

Is there any way I can disable the stupid rectangle selection mode thing in the Windows command line? I want to select line by line like normal. Currently it’s a giant pain when I need to copy things

So this is a thing from the past: [WayBack] Non-rectangle select in Windows command line – Super User

And this was already possible (but then you had to drag the full width): [WayBack] windows – Select text across lines in cmd.exe? – Super User

Windows 7 Blue Screen Of Death with error 0x7B – twm’s blog

Posted by jpluimers on 2020/09/28

[WayBack] Windows 7 Blue Screen Of Death with error 0x7B – twm’s blog:

To allow Windows 7 to boot in IDE as well as AHCI mode, I had to enable the following drivers (by setting “Start” to “0” in the registry, there might be other options to do this):

HKLM\System\CurrentControlSet\services\intelide
HKLM\System\CurrentControlSet\services\pciide
HKLM\System\CurrentControlSet\services\msahci
HKLM\System\CurrentControlSet\services\iastorV

The first two allow Windows 7 to boot from SATA in IDE mode. The second two allow Windows 7 to boot from SATA in AHCI mode.
