    RC2 installation turned off Fast User Switching and Use the Welcome Screen - VMGINA.DLL.

      After installing RC2, I noticed that my Welcome Screen and Shutdown dialog were strange looking (see here). I found that Fast User Switching and Use the Welcome Screen are turned off in User Accounts. A dialog pops up there that says an installed program has done this by installing VMGINA.DLL. This module is in the VMware Server folder in the program files folder. MS KB302346 describes how to correct this "problem". For some reason VMware has installed this DLL and registered it to replace MSGINA.DLL. I would like to have my original Welcome Screen and Shutdown dialog back but do not know if I can apply the fix and have RC2 continue to run correctly.

       

       

      I hope someone can tell me why VMware has inserted this DLL and if it is OK to bypass it.

       

       

      Thanks, John.
