By VSposaro ·
I am trying to get the appropriate screen shots to demonstrate the logon process for new employees and have been unsuccessful using the Alt Print Screen - any suggestions.

there are a couple of programs for training which captures what your doing on the screen and saves it in a vid file.

try these sites: www.hyperionics.com www.screen-capture.net www.techsmith.com

If you have access to Virtual PC or VMWare, starting the installation in a virtual machine gives a good opportunity to get those screen shots.

If you have access to someone that can remote admin into an XP box, you would be able to screenshot each screen as you go through the process. Good luck.

If not, maybe contacting Microsoft - they may have the screenshots available.

I believe that in Windows no application programs can be running before log on.
We use Microsoft Virtual PC 2004. This allow us to capture screen shots or short video clips. Virtual PC is like having another PC in your computer, but it display in its own window. You can use a variety of OSs. In the window, it go through the complete boot process when loading.

See http://www.microsoft.com/windows/virtualpc/default.mspx

Install WinVNC on a computer and make sure to install it as a service. Logout of the computer or reboot the computer and then use VNC to connect and you will see the Login screen and you can capture the whole sequence of images with a screen capture program on the computer you are connecting from. I've done this myself for training purposes, so I know it works.

I'm surprised that I haven't heard anyone mention Treminal Services. It's the predecessor to remote desktop but it will connect you to the machine and show you the machine's logon. Terminal services along with Alt+Print Screen Should set it up but, you will continue to run into problems like this and Virtual PC can save you a lot of the headaches you will have.

I have not checked this site for a while due to work commitments, Anyhow, I have done exactly what you are trying to do and I used VMWARE, this program allows you to have multiple Operating systems loaded into a Virtual Machine and then runs inside a window on your current operating system, you can pause and step back at the click of a button and even pause the entire instalation process whilst you go for a brew, somethign which i did several times.

I had to write a User guoide for the install process of WIndows XP Pro and Server 2003 and this method worked fine for me and allowed me to produce fantastice handouts.
