Installing Link Layer Topology Discovery (LLTD) on Windows Server 2003
- After downloading the update, navigate to the folder where you've saved the file and right-click it. Select Properties.
- Next, in the Compatibility tab, click to select the Run This Program in Compatibility Mode for, and in the drop-down list select Windows XP. Click Ok.
- You can now install the update. You will not be prompted for a reboot, but you might want to reboot anyway.
- Next, you need to install the LLTD protocol in the network adapter's properties. Go to the downloaded file from step 1, and double-click on it as if to install it. Do NOT proceed with the installation, just leave the welcome screen open. Now go to your hard disk, and on the partition with the largest available free space you'll find a folder which's name is made of many letters and numbers (name varies, so there's no point in typing it here).
- Open the network interface's properties screen, and click install.
- In the network component type click Protocol and the click on the Add button.
- In the Select Protocol window click Have Disk, and browse to the folder from step 4. In that path, look for the file called rspndr.inf. Click Ok.
- In the Select Network Protocol window click the Link-Layer Topology Discovery Responder and click Ok. After a short installation, the new protocol should be available in the network interface's properties screen.
- To be safe, reboot the computer. It should now be visible on the network map.
Unattended Windows Vista tech. on Windows XP/2003
UPDATE (09/12/2007): Updated with the list of applications and components listed here:
Windows Vista components available for Windows XP.
With Microsoft releasing a number of applications developed for Windows Vista also available for Windows XP, I’ve put together a quick ‘how to’ guide for performing an unattended install for each application.
- Windows Internet Explorer 7 [ Windows XP 32-bit | Windows Server 2003 32-bit ]
- Windows Media Player 11 [ Windows XP 32-bit ]
- Windows Defender 1.1 [ Windows XP / Server 2003 32-bit ]
- Microsoft .NET Framework 3.0 [ Windows XP / Server 2003 32-bit ]
- Windows Desktop Search 3.01 [ Windows XP 32-bit | Windows Server 2003 32-bit ]
- Remote Desktop Connection 6.0 [ Windows XP 32-bit | Windows Server 2003 32-bit ]
- Link Layer Topology Discovery (LLTD) Responder [ Windows XP 32-bit ]
Here’s a breakdown for each application including the command line you need to use for an unattended or silent install. I have the Windows XP version executables listed, so for Windows Server 2003 you will have to adjust the file names.
Windows Internet Explorer 7Internet Explorer can be installed during Windows Setup via CMDLINES.TXT. This will ensure that the latest version of IE is installed as soon as Windows setup is complete from a clean install. This command will stop the setup program from downloading updates during install and will display a dialog box with a progress bar. You can also add the /NO-DEFAULT switch to prevent setup from making Internet Explorer the default web browser. You can get a full list of command line switches by running IE7-WindowsXP-x86-enu.EXE /?.
START /WAIT IE7-WindowsXP-x86-enu.EXE /PASSIVE /NORESTART /UPDATE-NO
Windows Media Player 11This application is for Windows XP only, but then who needs WMP 11 on their Terminal Server? Unlike Internet Explorer, I’ve not been able to get Windows Media Player to install via CMDLINES.TXT. This command will install Windows Media Player without you seeing any install user interface during setup.
START /WAIT wmp11-windowsxp-x86-enu.exe /Q:A /C:"SETUP_WM.EXE /Q:A /R:N /P:#e"
Windows Defender 1.1This command line will install Windows Defender silently prevent Windows Defender from running after setup is complete.
START /WAIT MSIEXEC /I WindowsDefender.MSI ALLUSERS=TRUE REBOOT=SUPRESS CHECK_WGA=0 LAUNCHPROGRAM=0 LAUNCHSCAN=0 /QB-
Microsoft .NET Framework 3.0The .NET Framework 3.0 includes the .NET Framework 2.0 so you do not have to install that version separately. You will see a dialog with a progress bar during install.
START /WAIT dotnetfx3.EXE /PASSIVE /NORESTART
Windows Desktop Search 3.01The Windows Desktop Search setup application will accept the /PASSIVE switch so that a progress bar is displayed during setup, but the /QUIET switch is required to prevent setup from displaying an ‘Install Complete’ dialog once finished.
START /WAIT WindowsDesktopSearch-KB917013-V301-XP-x86-enu.exe /QUIET /NORESTART
Remote Desktop Connection 6.0Like Internet Explorer this application can be deployed via CMDLINES.TXT using a custom Windows setup source.
START /WAIT WindowsXP-KB925876-x86-ENU.EXE /PASSIVE /NORESTART
The network map on a computer running Windows Vista shows a graphical view of the computers and devices on your network and how they are connected by using the LLTD protocol. The LLTD responder must be installed on a computer running Windows XP before it can be detected and appear on the network map.
START /WAIT WindowsXP-KB922120-v5-x86-ENU.exe /PASSIVE /NORESTART
Full ListI’ve updated this script with the applications listed here. Windows Installer 3.1 is a requirement for installing .NET Framework 3.5.

What is a Network Map?Having multiple computers in the same home, or small office, is common. It’s becoming a rule, rather than an exception. Moms, Dads, and children all want to be online simultaneously as they work and play. As the number of computers increase so does the complexity of the network. Vista introduced a useful feature called Network Map. Network Map is a graphical map of the network showing locations, connections, and other basic network information.Sounds great, doesn’t it? Well you just knew it couldn’t be that simple! Since Network Map was introduced in Vista it isn’t compatible with XP by default. This means only computers running the Vista and later operating systems show in the map. The screenshot below is of the Network Map. In the map you can see HP-DV9500 is connected wirelessly (dotted line) to the router, which has a wired connection to my ISP. Also notice that computers using operating systems other than Vista do not show in the map, but are listed below as “can not be placed in map”. The ZD7020 is running XP and the Server is running Windows Home Server, neither of which can be mapped by Vista or Windows 7.[...] look for the rest!
