Thanks for the prompt replies.  Cheesy

I was able to D/L the ng2003b789_en.x86 file – Thanks again for the link.
If only I could get the ng2003b793_en.x86 file, things may begin to look promising.

Now the only frustration I have (besides not able to enforce world peace and the other ng2003b793_en.x86 file) is…
Live update was a simple procedure. I would click on a button and it did the rest.
Now it looks like I have to Rename, Search for directories, Write over the top of un-erasable files, Tap my head and rub my tummy all at the same time so I get the latest version of Ghost 2003.

Wouldn’t it be nice if Norton would have made it one downloadable file? Something like their virus definitions files.

thanks and t.i.e.

deepstar in reply #5 in the link above says that if you have build 789 installed, then LiveUpdate will work and update to 793.

Have you tried that--does it still work--or is that posting no longer valid?

These were the steps I took only to get to version 789.


Downloaded the ng2003b789_en.x86 file and renamed it to ng2003b789_en.zip

unzip file,

Restart PC in safe mode,

Checked to see GhostStartService.exe was not running in Task Manager.

Copied all files including 2 hidden files from the unzipped file to
C:\Program Files\Symantec\Norton Ghost 2003
(9 were overwritten and 4 placed in directory)

Restarted the PC

Checked version number - version is now .789

Click on Live update, and the following message is displayed.. 
"Thank you for using live update all the Symantec products and components are currently up to date. Remember to check for new updates frequently."

Clicked on Live update a couple of times and the same message...

So, although in a sense I was able to "patch" Ghost 2003 to version 789 it still not the latest.
Fancy having to “patch” a program like Ghost in this manner.
I wonder why an official patch was not released?

Again, thanks for the prompt reply.   Cheesy

I looked for quite a while before I found these. Someone out there could be nice and post these  on rapidshare, megaupload, or somewhere like that before this link goes down.

jrobin9,
thanks for the links, both zip-archives are downloaded to my hard disk.

I compared the files in ng2003b789_en with the files in 1122653960jtun_ng2003b789_en and all but one seem to be identical. The one that differs is ng2003upd2.dis.

From ng2003b789_en:

Quote:
LAUNCHEX([Norton Ghost],GhostStartService.exe,"/UnregServer", 1)
LAUNCH(TempDir, ghostlu.exe, , 1)
LAUNCHEX([Norton Ghost],GhostStartService.exe,"/Service", 1)
LAUNCHEX([Norton Ghost],GhostStartTrayApp,"", 1)

From 1122653960jtun_ng2003b789_en:

Quote:
LAUNCHEX([Norton Ghost],GhostStartService.exe,"/UnregServer", 1)
LAUNCH(TempDir, ghostlu.exe, , 1)
LAUNCHEX([Norton Ghost],GhostStartService.exe,"/Service", 1)
LAUNCH([Norton Ghost],GhostStartTrayApp.exe,"", 0)

I wonder what the significance is?

(The corresponding file in 1122653960jtun_ng2003b793_en is identical to the one in 1122653960jtun_ng2003b789_en.)

I don't have any of those two files on my system updated through LiveUpdate when it still worked.

There are files in the zip-archives that do not exist on my system:

In 1122653960jtun_ng2003b789_en:
ASPI1394.SYS (hidden)
ASPIEHCI.SYS (hidden)
ghostlu.exe
ghostlu.ini
ng2003upd2.dis

In 1122653960jtun_ng2003b793_en:
ghostlu.exe
ghostlu.ini
ng2003upd3.dis

The two missing (on my system) *.SYS files are strange.

ghostlu.exe and ghostlu.ini may be what is needed to get LiveUpdate to work for Ghost 2003?

I have the same problem (build 775 and LiveUpdate doesn't work).  The links above for 793 don't work anymore.  Can anyone please point me to a location to get them?  I really need the 793 update.

To all, I found the answer, and it's pretty easy once you know what to do.  After much experimentation and Googling, in the end I just uninstalled Ghost 2003 and then uninstalled LiveUpdate (which was left behind for my NAV installation).  I think this last part was the key.  Note:  I did not have to uninstall NAV, so that was nice.

I then downloaded the latest LiveUpdate version from Symantec's site (reads 3.2.0.43 in the About screen).  It adds a select field for two LiveUpdate Locations:  SYMANTEC-LIVE and SYMANTEC-ARCHIVE.  My prior version of LiveUpdate didn't have this.

I reinstalled Ghost 2003 from the CD, and then ran LiveUpdate twice, choosing the SYMANTEC-ARCHIVE location each time.  The first update upgraded me to build 789 (from 775).  Running LiveUpdate a second time installed the 793 build.  BTW, this PC is running Win2K SP4 as it's an older PC but still has a lot of life left.  8)

Here's where I found the information that gave me the idea.  By the way, following the instructions below did NOT solve the problem for me, as it didn't properly replace my LiveUpdate.  I also did NOT have to replace the LiveUpdate Hosts file.

Interestingly, the Hosts file that came with the new LiveUpdate version had two locations, whereas the Hosts file reference in the last link below has something like 4 or 5 LiveUpdate locations.

For whatever reason, I didn't have the right version of LiveUpdate, even though I saw it come down as part of my NAV updates recently.

See:
http://tinyurl.com/ouyco, which took me to:
http://service1.symantec.com/Support/sharedtech.nsf/docid/2007010219171513

Hope this helps someone else avoid losing several hours chasing this down like I did.  Perhaps I didn't need to uninstall Ghost 2003, but I wanted to start fresh and clear out its product information in LiveUpdate before replacing LiveUpdate.

Note that the Symantec website lists version 3.2.0.41 of LiveUpdate (release date of January 6, 2007) as being the most current.

I do not see an option in this version to choose a LiveUpdate location (SYMANTEC-LIVE or SYMANTEC-ARCHIVE).

See http://www.symantec.com/techsupp/files/lu/lu.html

HECK YES!

It worked just as described!  Thank you, ghostuser!

Of note, I did not have to uninstall Ghost.  In fact, it wouldn't work at all without Ghost installed.  The script just generated an error trying to run LiveUpdate since there was nothing to update.  My only Norton/Symantec product is Ghost 2003, and LiveUpdate is built right into it - i.e. LiveUpdate doesn't stand alone and so far as I know could only be run from within Ghost.

If you are trying this by simply updating LiveUpdate and then trying to run LiveUpdate as a separate app, this may not work.  It seems you actually have to launch LiveUpdate from the button on the Symantec page, which runs something different.  The drop-down box to select SYMANTEC-ARCHIVE is there.  Running the update once gave me version 789, and running it again gave me 793. 

I'll be RARing those away for safe keeping ....

I downloaded and installed version 3.2.0.43 of LiveUpdate, released Feb 1 but not mentioned on the Symantec site. As Pleonasm noted, there is no SYMANTEC-LIVE or SYMANTEC-ARCHIVE choice. Probably because we don't have Ghost 2003 installed. Interesting.
