Word / Excel Problem: There is not enough memory or disk space to run word

If you get this annoying message from your favorite MS application, you may have read the internet to the end until you got here. We had the same issue with Word or Excel and tried to get into that problem. First of all, we recognized that it only appears when we upgrade our clients from Windows 7 to Windows 10 1809. If we made a different step between, that everything worked as expected. You may read a lot of stories where Microsoft has a bug on 1809 and you should upgrade to the next Windows 10 version (1903) to „fix“ this problem, but in some cases you can’t and have to deal with this problem like we did.

Windows XP – Offer Remote Desktop Assistance with predefined ip

If you want to automate the remote desktop assistance (not remote desktop) with Windows XP you run into some problems. First of all I ran into the problem that „rcimlby.exe“, which seems to be a good point to start lacks with its commandline parameter. I thought that „rcimlby.exe“ has a hidden parameter to submit a computer netbios name, or a ipaddress to connect directly to the computer after launching the application, but after debugging the exe I didn’t find any indication for a computerobject parameter, so I started to look elsewhere and found a pretty simple solution.

As it turns out, rcimlby.exe calls a help website (Windows XP help) from where you can start a remote desktop assistance. But this website hasn’t a parameter for the computerobject as well and it seems to be impossible to call this website within the help explorer, so I traced the way rcimlby.exe calls this website and found this call:

But there is no way to add a parameter for the computerobject, so I started to find out where these weird (and never used 😀 ) html helpfiles are stored (especially where UnSolicitedRCUI.htm is stored)
