Hi,

I had the same problem and solved it by executing a script that

1. Disable the firewall-service (so it won't start again when rebooting the computer)

2. Stop the firewall-service

The following script does the trick

#NoTrayIcon
Opt("TrayMenuMode",1)
RegWrite("HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\SharedAccess", "Start", "REG_DWORD", "4")
RunWait(@ComSpec & " /c " & 'net stop "Windows Firewall/Internet Connection Sharing (ICS)"', "", @SW_HIDE)

But you need to run it as an administrator on the computer itself (bummer...)

So You create a script (exe) of the code above. Lets call it 'Disable_And_Stop_Firewall.exe'

And need to create a new script (exe) that unpacks this 'Disable_And_Stop_Firewall.exe' and launch it as the administrator. The following script does this.

#NoTrayIcon
Opt("TrayMenuMode",1)
FileInstall(".\Disable_And_Stop_Firewall.exe", ".\Disable_And_Stop_FW.exe", 1)
Sleep(100)
If RunAsWait("administrator", @computername, "administratorpasswordofthecomputer", 0, ".\Disable_And_Stop_FW.exe") = 0 and @error <> 0 Then
    Sleep(100)
    Run(@ComSpec & " /c " & $Command, @ScriptDir & "\", @SW_HIDE)
EndIf
Sleep(100)
FileDelete(".\Disable_And_Stop_FW.exe")
Sleep(100)

I hope this will help,

Best regards,

Peter
