I am on W7 Home Premium OEM 32 Bit, is the file you put for download 64 Bit?
If yes, can anybody provide me the 32 Bit one?
Actually, I have two laptops, one runs 64 Bit, the other 32 Bit, but I have different accounts on the 32 Bit version.

Many thanks!
Alex
Have you tried to copy/paste the tsdiscon in to C: Windows, System 32?

Hi,

sure I did, it is written in the procedure or have I misunderstood your question?

Alex

PS: Yes, I misunderstood the question, copy/paste instead of extracting from the .zip file... I'll try immediately and come back.

Just checking. I don't know if there is a different version but maybe someone will come along with one.

Hello Alex, and welcome to Seven Forums.

I've just updated the file with a more current version of it. It is the same for both 32 and 64 bit Vista. Please download it and try again.

Hope this helps,
Shawn
