Dell F6 RegFix Utility, A04

The Dell Regfix driver fixes a known registry issue that may be present on Dell PowerEdge(TM) servers with a Dell-installed Microsoft(R) Windows Server(TM) 2003 (Standard, Enterprise, or Web Edition) operating system. The A04 release resolves a timing issue with far-east languages that was found in A03

Fixes & Enhancements

This tool does not require that the user burn a CD from an iso image in order to run the tool. It does require that the user has a Windows Server 2003 CD in order to initialize a boot of the OS. The created floppy disk is used via the F6 interrupt to install the fix.
The A04 version resolves an issue found with double-byte language OS Versions (Jpn, SCHI, TCHI, etc)
