  1. OK, see those links outlined in red, under the Google ads and search? Read both of them Unattended CD/DVD Guide Homepage will tell you how to make an unattended installation, and MSFN Forum Rules will tell you what (not) to do on the forums. Have fun making your unattended CD
  2. It looked to me as if you could just download the file in the last post, and install it with those switches.
  3. It was done with WU5 a while ago, I don't know if it's the same update with WU6 apparently it's also possible with WU6.
  4. The uxtheme.dll is not language dependant, I have used an English uxtheme.dll on a Dutch XP SP2 installation before. I don't know which bytes are edited, because I would do it myself then, but you can find a few uxtheme.dlls for different languages here: http://themes.belchfire.net/index.php?showtopic=9001
  5. only the images are replaced, not the dlls with the strings, so it should work for all languages.
  6. Ofcourse the unattended files would be created beforehand, but they are small and I figured they usually don't change when a program is updated. The company would have to switch to another installer for the unattended file not to work. Yes, the program would probably have a timeout of 10 secs or more and continue with the next program if it can't download. Maybe a log at the end/after restart showing which programs failed to download, or something like that. Could make a script that daily checks which links are down, and sends me an email for example... Ofcourse the network settings would have to be correct for it to work, it would connect to a database on the internet, so it would have to shutdown if it can't connect. You're right about the last one, the program probably wouldn't download if you had a link like that, nothing to do about that unfortunately.
  7. These days almost everyone has broadband, and doesn't mind downloading a bunch of programs/updates. I figured I could make a database with a program's name and the direct download link, and then make a program where you can create a config file so the programs will be automatically downloaded. This would save precious space on your CD Things I haven't figured out yet: Name, I suck at inventing names Installation, should the program do the installation would you still have to use another way. Database, if everyone has access to it and can change it, anyone can change a download link to an incorrect one. Feedback please
  8. Different versions need different cd keys. XP Home needs a Home key, Pro needs a Pro key, Corp needs a Corp key, MCE needs a MCE key, etc. So if you have a corporate version of Windows, it should've come with a corporate key aswell.
  9. It will probably not show the updates, but it will show the installation file of Windows Messenger. The entry in winnt.sif for Outlook Express will only hide the shortcuts to it, so I don't know if it will show the updates for it then.
  10. Your error is in this line: FOR %%i IN (D: E: F: G: H: I: J: K: L: M: N: O: P: Q: R: S: T: U: V: W: X: Y: Z:) DO IF EXIST %%i:\win51ip.SP2 SET CDROM=%%i: %%i already contains a : at the end, so your line should be: FOR %%i IN (D: E: F: G: H: I: J: K: L: M: N: O: P: Q: R: S: T: U: V: W: X: Y: Z:) DO IF EXIST %%i\win51ip.SP2 SET CDROM=%%i
  11. So you must've found this topic: http://www.msfn.org/board/index.php?showtopic=36999 (6th result when searching for oemlogo.bmp). And you ini should be called oeminfo.ini, not oem.ini (also seen in the guide you posted).
  12. Let me burst your bubble even more I believe cmdlines.txt won't run either without OEMPreinstall=Yes. So for example, you can't apply any regtweaks to all users. @Astalavista: I believe that's why he wants F6 to work, for his SATA/RAID drivers
  13. It works, but you're probably using the link in the topic posted above, which links to ( is the newest version, just go to the download section of XPlode's website and get it there).

  15. This is the default behavior of SP2's updates. If you need to reboot after updating, it will popup every few minutes to tell you to reboot. I have the same problem at the moment (just installed the latest updates), spent a while looking for a way to disable it, but it seems there's no way to do so. The only way is to set the timeout of when it will remind you again with the following regtweak: [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Policies\Microsoft\Windows\WindowsUpdate\AU] "RebootRelaunchTimeout"=dword:000005a0 "RebootRelaunchTimeoutEnabled"=dword:00000001 This will set the timeout to 1 day (1440 minutes, change it to whatever you like).
