DllRegisterServer failed with error code 0x80004005 ...

I was trying to register a dll with command prompt in Vista but error message prompt ".. DllRegisterServer failed with error code 0x80004005 ...."

finally i found out that is because of security issue. To solve this,
Go to Start --> All Programs --> Accessories, right-click Command Prompt, and then click Run as Administrator

Then use regsvr32 to register the DLL.

It's work.

osticket - admin login error "Authentication Required"

i have tried to setup osticket few times and i'm very sure that my admin username and password is correct but i still got error message "Authentication Required"

After browse and google around, i found one solution to enable me to login but i'm not sure what is the effact for this change.

go to scp/, and find the line below

//1) is the user Logged in for real && is staff.
if(!is_object($thisuser) !$thisuser->getId() !$thisuser->isValid()){

comment out !$thisuser->isValid() and now become

if(!is_object($thisuser) !$thisuser->getId() /* !$thisuser->isValid()*/){

go to try again. it's working. Perhap, someone can tell me what is the issue and i'm not php expert. Not working on 15 Sep 2008

Update: 15 Sep 2008
No Luck. It only work for one day. Not sure what happen and now not working. I'll keep updating this post until get some solution or work around. I have to un comment previous changes.

line 41 in scp\login.php, comment out @header("Location: $dest"); and try again.
// @header("Location: $dest");
it's work for me, at least for now.

Update: 21 Sep 2008
It's working fine since changes on 15 Sep 2008. SOLVED!

The user instance login flag is not supported on this version of SQL Server. The connection will be closed.

I have download an open source app. The database supported is SQL Express. When i try to run the app, error message [The user instance login flag is not supported on this version of SQL Server. The connection will be closed. ].

The reason is my installed database is full version of mssql 2005 and not express version. In order to make it run in my development machine, i have change the connectionstring in tag
<connectionstrings> from

<add name="TDConnectionString" connectionString="data source=.\SQLExpress;Integrated Security=SSPI;AttachDBFilename=DataDirectoryTD.mdf;User Instance=true"
providerName="System.Data.SqlClient" />


<add name="TDConnectionString"
providerName="System.Data.SqlClient" />

where ".\SQLSERVER2005" is my database server.

It's works now.
