  1. Is it possible to...

    Thanks, i'll see what i can do with this.
  2. Is it possible to...

    I didn't think about this one Bobby100. That's a good idead! Like you said, to registry snapshot wouldn't work with all applications... but there's a way to work that around, i'm sure. Lets say that it's possible to use a variable like %cdrom% for the installed path in the reg key instead of a Hard Drive letter, i could modify the registry to look for %cdrom% instead of the default installation path. The question is : Is it possible to put a variable in the registry that could always point to the cdrom i'm using ? And another way could be that i create a windows architecture on my CD-Rom with it's own registry. I know that the process could be very difficult because i don't want the installed programs to think that my CD is in fact the OS i'm working on. You get it ? If, let's say, i try to do a registry cleanup with Reghealer installed on my cd, hmm... i'm not sure how good would be the results if i reference the CD registry to the cd-rom architecture (%cdrom%/windows/system32) for exemple. I think the there wouldn't be any problem to use antivirus or antispywares as you can select the drives to scan. Besides that, i think that it would take a lot of time to modify the registry correctly... but maybe... maybe that's possible Any ideas ?
  3. Is it possible to...

    Thank you, i already know about those. I probably didn't ask my question well enough because the answers you gave me are not the one i'm looking for. I'll try to explain a little more clearly what i'm looking for. I made a tech cd with all the utilities i use to diagnose/clean/repair computers. This is a normal cd ,made with Autoplay Media Studio that boots in windows. From the menu i made, i can install antivirus, anti-spywares, etc... like normal applications. I sometimes had problems installing some applications because the system was too corrupted. There's my need. I'd like to create a cd-rom with an autorun.inf that could boot into windows. Don't misunderstand, i don't need a bootable cd to SEE windows, like bart's PE or some Live Linux cd. I already have these. Do you follow my point ? Instead of installing Kaspersky antivirus on the user's computer, i would have it installed on a cd-rom. Somehow, it would be like running windows from a cd, on windows. I hope it's more clear now.. I know that this request can be misunderstand easily, but i'm not looking after the easy answer (WinPE, Bart's PE, Knopix). I didn't read any thread about such cd or never heard anything similar. Have you any idea ?
  4. Is it possible to...

    Hello, I was wondering if it was possible to create a CD with installed programs on it. I'll explain. I'd like to have a CD that could boot into Windows but inside it, there would be installed programs like antivirus, antispywares, cleaner... etc. I don't want them to be installed on the computer but only usable from my CD. I imagine a CD with a windows architecture. Is that possible ? and does any of you knows where i could get information about how to do so ? Thank you, Magellan456
  5. How to install Remote Administrator 2.2

    I never thought about a sfx file... That's a good idea. Does the program get registered with your regkeys ? Or you have to enter a serial after the installation ?
  6. How to install Remote Administrator 2.2

    It took me around 5 hours, but i finally did it ! I went onto Remote Adminstrator site and found that there was information about silently installing this program in the help file that comes with the program. Yeah, it looks alike the thread you gave me, but only one dll is required. The difference i did was two searches inside Regedit for first: remote administrator and then for: radmin I exported as much as i could the keys that were really pointing to this program. Then, i used Setup Factory 6 to build up an autoinstalltion. This insallation is completly silent and integers a working serial. I can't really tell you more since i used a Setup Factory 6 to work this issue around. The only help i can give you is to really deep-search your registry for references files. That's what's is going to make a difference for a registered program or an unregistered one. Add your keys to your installation and Test it. Good luck! ant thanks for your help.
  7. Hi, i've found the forum for installing remote administrator 2.2, but i didn't find anything. Any help ? Thanks
  8. RunOnceEx.cmd

    Thanks AaronXP. Now my cd works like a charm. Cheers, Magellan456
  9. RunOnceEx.cmd

    Could you be more specficic Aaronxp ? What do you mean by launch a batch file from RunOnceEx containing the xcopy commands ? Would i have to create a .cmd file containing the xcopy command about winzip and put it in the $oem$ folder afterward ? And if so, do i add a line at the end in my runonceex.cmd pointing to this .cmd file ? You're also suggesting me to Otherwise add a cmd.exe /c before the xcopy command. What does the /c stands for ? Thank you, you're really nice to help me through this one pal, Magellan456
  10. RunOnceEx.cmd

    Hi. Good news, my cd works now. But, since i'm here, i'd like to know something. My Winzip is not installing during my setup. I knew this one would be though because it uses " a lot. Maybe you could help me with that. When i was using [GuiRunOnce] with hotfixes.cmd i had this for winzip: Echo Installation de Winzip 9.0 xcopy %systemdrive%\winapps\winzip\*.* "%systemdrive%\Program Files\WinZip\" /I "%systemdrive%\Program Files\WinZip\winzip32.exe" /cleaninstall Echo. As you can see, it uses a lot of " and the problem comes when i put \ in RunOnceEx to uses " commands. Here's my RunOnceEx.cmd using winzip: REG ADD %KEY%\130 /VE /D "Installation de Winzip 9.0" /f REG ADD %KEY%\130 /V 1 /D "xcopy %systemdrive%\winapps\winzip\*.* \"%systemdrive%\Program Files\WinZip\ \" /I \"%systemdrive%\Program Files\WinZip\winzip32.exe\" /cleaninstall" /f I put a \ separated by a space by choice in the line (...)systemdrive%\Program Files\WinZip\ \" /I \"%systemdrive%\Program(...) Maybe that's the problem... Another thing i'd like to know, if you don't mind, is how can i create a menu at the end of the installation asking the user wich applications he'd like to install, such as Norton Antivirus, Spysweeper, Winrar...etc. I've seen menu like this in some threads but i didn't find how to do it. Thanks a lot for your support! Magellan456

  12. RunOnceEx.cmd

    Hi, Thanks for the Informat AaronXp. Unfortunatly i just finished trying my cd and the RunOnceEx command didn't lunch. I'm now trying to figure out why. Maybe you can help me. I've put the files: cmdlines.txt and RunOnceEx.cmd in the $OEM$ forlder. My cleanup.cmd and prepare.cmd files are in the $OEM$\$1\Install Folder. I have mofified my winnt.sif and removed the [GuiRunOnce] section as proposed above. There's maybe a problem with my svcpack.inf. I'm using it to put some hotfixes during installation... maybe i need to add something to it. Note that the hotfixes in my svc pack where sucsessfully installed during my installation. I don't really know what went wrong. Any help is welcome! Thank you, Magellan456
  13. RunOnceEx.cmd

    Thanks, that's what i thought but i wasn't quite sure. I went through the XP guide, but it wasn't clear enough though. Thanks to you, i know now ! Goodbye, Magellan456
  14. RunOnceEx.cmd

    Hi, i've read threads about the RunOnceEx.cmd but i'm not figuring out how to put it in winnt.sif. I was using a batch file wich i called %systemdrive%\install\hotfixes\hotfixes.cmd in the [GuiRunOnce] section before but then, i've read that you could replace the GuiRunOnce section by RunOnceEx to have a graphical view of what is installing on your computer. I'd like to know how to add the RunOneEx in winnt.sif. Do i have to delete the GuiRunOnce section and replace it with RunOneEx ? If so, do i have to call a file such as RunOnceEx.cmd somewhere ? Thanks for your support, Magellan456
  15. ERD Commander 2003

    Hi Chris, Make sure the path of your loader and the name is the right one. If you're trying to test Erd2003 by itself(without the xp integrated) the correct file is not loader.bin but bootsect.bin. If your using CDShell for your boot menu, the boot sector file is in the Boot directory. Otherwise, if eveything above doesn't work, you should look inside your loader.bin with an hex editor to see if it points to the correct dir or file. Good Luck, Magellan456
