Thanks for helping!

but it is still not working.
I tried the hints given in the FAQs... but the problem still remains.

I even tried some of the example scirpts provided here:  
but it wasn't succesful at all.

If I run "cscript \\server\WPKG\wpkg.js /synchronize" the fault report 
is "Could not find profile for host pille-win."

here's an extract from the hosts.xml

<host name="pille-win.tech-sr" profile-id="default" />

I don't understand where the problem could be.

Any ideas?

best regards
