  1. Guide: Mozilla Firefox Unattended

    Wow, that IS easy. Just to be totally clear: you mean the desktop shortcuts, right? Not the installation command. Thought so.. Then I have just one last question - how do you auto-setup the shortcuts? Through config.ini, or are they installed automatically no matter what?
  2. Guide: Mozilla Firefox Unattended

    I've been at this some time but somehow couldn't manage to ge things right using SiMoNsAyS' first guide - profile and extensions just wouldn't install. I like the latest method - easy, clean, just one file and easy to enter into runonceex. But (you knew there was a but coming right?) I would like to localize my version of FF. In my case it's the Dutch version. So what I would like to know: how extensively was the original installer edited? Would it be easy / do-able to edit the dutch installer, or could I add the nl_NL.xpi from the Dutch installer to the silent setup (and possibly copy config.ini cause that seems to be file that sets the language file / reg entries etc.)?
  3. Unattended upgrade from office 2000 to XP

    So, if I understand correctly, the upgrade version of Office XP checks for some application exe files. Question 1) does it have to be all three or will for example winword.exe suffice? Question 2) do the exe file(s) need to be on some local fixed drive or floppy? Or could it\they be placed on the unattended CD\DVD? Because that's what I'm doing now: inserting the old CD until setup continues. Question 3) if the file(s) need to be on a systemdrive as opposed to the CD\DVD, wouldn't it be enough to include them on the DVD so they would be copied over during text-mode setup? Or, if you're installing from CD, to have them copied over using a batchfile called from RunOnceEx or some other method? Sounds to me that this would be even easier
  4. Confirming major's findings: 66.93 Int. leaves 153 files (as opposed to 152, but still way more than 42 ) for a total of 44,9 megs. Prathapml's script runs fine, no errors. I'm assuming this is normal for the international drivers?
  5. RunonceexMaker

    A question: How is the program able to distinguish between a new and follow-up entry? What I mean is, how does the program know when to create a key with the same keynumber (ie %KEY%/xxx) but higher values after the /V, and when to create a key with a higher keynumber. From your screenshots I'm guessing a new keynumber is triggered when data is entered in the description field, correct?
  6. How to handle Norton Ghost 9.0

    So what, if anything, is the difference between the retail and the NIS-bundled version? And what I mean is from an installation / registration point of view, not functionality. I've gotten the install to work by creating a server image followed by silent install through msiexec: msiexec.exe /i "Path\to\Norton Ghost 9.0.msi" symsetup=1 reboot=reallysuppress /q* It still asks for the serial on first run, though. And after that symlcrst.dll doesn't appear to have changed (though its datestamp is updated daily). I haven't tried backing it up and reinstalling my system (I did that just last week, only without Ghost; I did install NIS2005 silently with a symlcrst.exe like in Astalavista's thread), and I'm really not about to just to test if it will work... so if anybody has experience with this?
  7. what do u use to backup ur dvds?

    DVD Shrink - I've backed up dozens of DVD's and not a problem encountered so far. It will back up as an iso which will burn with just about any available burning program. Quality is excellent - a 2 hour movie compressed to a single 4.7 GB DVD looks perfect on my 82 cm, widescreen TV (although I did cut out the extra's and unwanted/unneeded languages/subtitles).
  8. Which mediaplayer is the best?

    WMP for video, iTunes for audio and iPod
  9. The count-down to SP2

    So, what's this SP2 thingy I'm hearing so much about? From all the posts you'd think it was some big deal or something... But seriously, I'm stuck here for another two weeks waiting for the release of SP2 Dutch...
  10. @prathapml NetBEUI isn't installed, only TCP/IP @Unicorn 1. Pinging within the local network doesn't work - timeouts every time. Pinging Internet addresses works. 2. Yes, that's what it means @ sven, gamehead Win98 works flawlessly in my own home LAN, together with a WinXP PC (my own, the Win98 is my wife's) and a SuSE Linux/Samba fileserver. Also some extra info which I left out on my first post - the OS on the laptop is WinME , the error message is the very non-descriptive "Cannot search the network" (or whatever it is says in English - I have to work with the Dutch version)
  11. Married or Single?

    Married, and happily so. + 2 girls, 2y and 5m
  12. As most people here (I expect) I have a second job (if only it would pay...) being a sort of helpdesk/sysadmin for family and inlaws. But recently I've come across a networking problem that has me completly stumped... The PCs: one no-name home made desktop PC running Win98SE one Compaq Presario laptop ruuning WinME The Network: xDSL to DSL-modem/router (Alcatel SpeedTouch) to PCs (wired) The Problem: Both PCs can surf without problem, but they cannot communicate directly. I've been through every parameter I could think of, but all options (protocol, file- & printersharing, IP & submasks, workgroup names, you name it) seem to be set properly on both machines. Shares have been set on the desktop PC, so that's not it either. I have actually managed to get this whole setup running from time to time, but after every reboot the network is a mess Anybody have any ideas?
  13. How old are you?

    31 here; oh my god I feel old in this crowd... GeneralMandible - I can relate...
  14. How to add GeexBox and Knoppix to my dvd?

    See the little magnifying glass in the top right of your screen? It's there for a reason! Use it to serach for Knoppix and you will find a number of posts, this one among them. As for GeexBox: dunno... If it is run from CD then I imagine you follow the same steps as for Knoppix, otherwise - somebody else?
  15. cdshell boot image?

    For a progress bar place the following code at the beginning of your ini file, and loose the boot: section: #Progress Bar Start Begin: set progress_bar = "\\ac\\c0F \\c87±±±±±±±±±±±±±±±±±±±± \\c0F" clear set textCursorY=9 print "\ac\c0F \c87±±±±±±±±±±±±±±±±±±±±\c0F \n" SET TEXTCURSORX = 0; SET TEXTCURSORY = 23 print c "Press any key to boot from DVD... (You have 20 seconds)\n" print c "[Expletive deleted]" #set textCursorX = 28; SET TEXTCURSORY = 2 print c "\c0AMulti-OS Boot DVD" set textCursorX = 30 set textCursorY = 9 set counter = 21 BOOT_Counter_Start: set counter = $counter - 1 if $counter == 0; THEN GOTO BOOTC ############################# # change color of bar here # else print "\cF2Û" # will give a green bar # # else print "\c14X" # will give a red X WITH BLUE BACKGROUND ############################# else print "\cF2Û" getkey 1 goto BOOT_Counter_Start # Progress Bar End It refers to a section called BOOTC, so make sure you have that or edit the line to reflect your own ini. Also, it is set up for a countdown of 20 secs. If you need more (or less for that matter) time, you'll have to edit the first 'set counter' line, and change the number of ± characters in the lines above it. It may not line up perfectly, so be careful. Don't change the 'set textcursor' lines or the front and back of the progress bar won't match up. I should mention that it's not my own code, but I'll be d*mned if I can remeber the exact source. It was mentioned on this forum but I couldn't find the relevant post. If someone recognises their own code in this - sorry dude, no disrespect! A few more remarks: - if you use show image you don't need the whole 'printing the interface' section above it; this will do (but change MainKey: to menu_key: if not because it doesn't work then for consistency): menu: MainKey: show image dvd.csi getkey 30 goto menu if $lastKey == key[1]; then chain /PRO1.DAT if $lastKey == key[2]; then chain /2PRO.DAT if $lastKey == key[3]; then memdisk /98SE.IMA if $lastKey == key[4]; then chain /ERD1.DAT if $lastKey == key[5]; then memdisk /NGH.IMA if $lastkey == key[6]; then goto tools if $lastKey == key[q]; then reboot if $lastKey == key[esc]; then boot 0x80 - Dude, edit your post and xxx out your reg codes!
