  1. Just in case, I did get O&O Defrag done. Here is the mediafire link. http://www.mediafire.com/file/i5ytmmwjrdv/Addon_O&O Defrag.cab Glad ya got it worked out. Have a nice day and if ya need any more help just ask.
  2. Not sure what is going on. I downloaded o&o defrag the latest verson. I created a folder on my desktop. I placed the program in that folder and right clicked on the program in the folder and selected "extract to here". I then simply deleted the setup.exe file. I then right clicked on the .msi and executed with /qn. Worked fine and even gave me a shortcut to my desktop. No worries, I will make this work for ya. Or atleast try. I will make it, try it in virtual machine to make sure it works fine and upoad it to medifire for ya. You can download it. If all goes well I will explain exactly how I did it so you can maybe make your own in the future. Hang Tight. Will get this done.
  3. [Request] UltimateDefrag 1.72 FREE

    Try /a switch. That one seems to work fine. Tried it myself.
  4. Messed around with this a bit. What I did was downloaded Defrag Pro. Extracted the setup file. Like you said You have setup.exe and the msi file. I deleted the the setup.exe file. Then I tried to install using just the msi file. Worked fine. I then Used the /qn and exectuted with the /qn switch and it installed just fine as well. You may give that a shot and see what happens. Just extract then delete the setup.exe. I used http://www.softpedia.com/get/System/OS-Enh...nts/CMenu.shtml . You may find that tool Super Useful if you dont already have it. I use it tons. Just adds some super cool options to your right click. I right click on the .msi then seletect more options from the right click, Then select file managment, then execute with peramaters, put in the switch you think may work and try it. I used the /qn and it installed fine. Hope this helps. If you still unable to get it to work let me know. I may just make it and upload it to a medafire download for ya if needed.
  5. Help with driverpacks......

    I am working with driverpacks from here.....http://www.driverpacks.net/ So I download the driverpacks I need and the tool that is needed as well. I then use the Extracted Iso from my already nlited disk I browse to the I386 file. Try to slipstream with no luck. So can someone point me to a english verson of how to do this or provide a step my step guide.
  6. Ok I figured out what I did wrong with the autoitmicrot tool. I had the switch still set to /passive. Once I got that removed that tool is really handy and pretty cool. Its like the screen recorder only it does it in text. Your are right. That is much easier to use. So here is my micro tool script. Did the lesson 2 thing today. The one with the notepad example. Pretty cool. I found that more useful for my needs. The popup was cute, but not something that I really wanna use. But was handy to learn about the flags and title and message thing. If anyone else is kinda new and reading this thread. Really Go with the tutorials, Do one a day or as time allows. It really does help make sense of the stuff you see. ;--- AutoIt Macro Generator V 0.21 beta --- Opt("WinTitleMatchMode", 4) Run("C:\Documents and Settings\Administrator\Desktop\ghost 2003\setup.exe") WinWait("Program Manager","FolderView") $CLVItem = ControlListView("Program Manager","FolderView","SysListView321","FindItem","My Computer") ControlListView("Program Manager","FolderView","SysListView321","SelectClear") ControlListView("Program Manager","FolderView","SysListView321","Select",$CLVItem) WinWait("Information","To help ensure compatibility w") ControlClick("Information","To help ensure compatibility w","Button1") WinWait("Norton Ghost 2003 - InstallShield Wizard","&Next >") ControlClick("Norton Ghost 2003 - InstallShield Wizard","&Next >","Button1") WinWait("Norton Ghost 2003 - InstallShield Wizard","I &accept the terms in the lic") ControlClick("Norton Ghost 2003 - InstallShield Wizard","I &accept the terms in the lic","Button3") ControlClick("Norton Ghost 2003 - InstallShield Wizard","I &accept the terms in the lic","Button5") WinWait("Norton Ghost 2003 - InstallShield Wizard","&Organization:") ControlClick("Norton Ghost 2003 - InstallShield Wizard","&Organization:","Button2") WinWait("Norton Ghost 2003 - InstallShield Wizard","or click Change to install to ") ControlClick("Norton Ghost 2003 - InstallShield Wizard","or click Change to install to ","Button1") WinWait(" Norton Ghost 2003 - InstallShield Wizard","The wizard is ready to begin i") ControlClick(" Norton Ghost 2003 - InstallShield Wizard","The wizard is ready to begin i","Button1") WinWait("Please Register Norton Ghost 2003","As a world leader in Internet ") ControlClick("Please Register Norton Ghost 2003","As a world leader in Internet ","Button5") WinWait("Please Register Norton Ghost 2003","Are you sure you want to skip ") ControlClick("Please Register Norton Ghost 2003","Are you sure you want to skip ","Button1") WinWait("Norton Ghost 2003 - InstallShield Wizard","Binary11") ControlClick("Norton Ghost 2003 - InstallShield Wizard","Binary11","Button1") ;--- End ---
  7. I truly have a STRONG desire to learn this. While I so appreciate the simple fix. That is really not gonna teach me anything. You have taken the time to help me, I am gonna take advantage of the situation and take the opportunity to learn this. Its back to your suggestion of autoitmanager, I will continue to use the same program just to keep it more simple. I realize most think Its nuts, Just take the simple fix and be done with it. I prefer to think long term. Learn while I have the chance and someone is willing to help me with it. That way it the future, I can tackle this on my own. Shortcuts can be nice, but long term can bite ya in the bottom. So I am off to take another step in the tutorial, tackle autoitmanger, and will repost my new script. Have a nice day.
  8. Update. I tried the microgenerator program, using nortons ghost setup.exe. I let it open and run and really ended up with nothing in the box but a single line. I have the program set up to install "passive" So I can see the progress bar. Will look around and see if I did something wrong with the generator. I also tried autoit screen recorder, Now that seemed to give me a bit more to work with. Here is the script I ended up with that. I put the Exit in myself. Opt("WinWaitDelay",100) Opt("WinTitleMatchMode",4) Opt("WinDetectHiddenText",1) Opt("MouseCoordMode",0) Run('C:\Documents and Settings\Administrator\Desktop\ghost 2003\setup.exe') WinWait("Information","To help ensure compa") If Not WinActive("Information","To help ensure compa") Then WinActivate("Information","To help ensure compa") WinWaitActive("Information","To help ensure compa") Send("{ENTER}") Exit Now it seems to me after the send command is sent I need to put in a line for a "winwaitdelay" to allow the program to install. I will stop here until You get a bit of time to help. I may be going down the wrong path and Need to work more with the autoitmicrogenerator to compile a more workable script. Will wait on you. I am also starting out with the tutorials. Will hopefully take a new step every day. Today I did the "hello world" script. I messed around for a min and kinda made a perverted one for the girlfriend. Had her click on it and the pop up box displayed a funny adult type message. We both got a tickle, and she was rather impressed I did that. Seen a post that someone suggested learning the manual stuff to better understand the automated stuff and I kinda agree. Its starting to make sense.
  9. MHz, I can not tell you how grateful I am for your help. I have had such a Horrid time finding Someone to help me with this. Its like its a big secret. I even posted in a forum that deals with kinda stuff all the time and a week later still no responce to my plea for help. I am sure I will ask you TONS of questions. I thank you so very much for your help. So I am guessing the Autoitmicrogenerator is the program I need to start out with learning?? That helps lots. I was not sure even how to begin the learning process. I will start with the generator and learn that part of autoit. Feel free to correct me if I am wrong. I will learn this. Its gonna take time and work but something I have always wanted to learn, but like most was not even sure how to begin. Have a nice day and once again I thank you so very very much.
  10. Forgive me I posted this in another part of the forum and goofed up. Forgot about this section. I need help with a autoit script. Its the last trick I need to be able to make anything install silent. Let me tell ya this One was HARD. Took me a couple of months just to figure it out. I am still really new to autoit. I know the "recording" part of it. I am working on Norton ghost 2003. I have it install silently. No problem. I took the files needed and made a sfx file. The files needed included the silent switch, because with norton ghost, You can simply edit the setup.ini file in the install folder with the switch needed. Took me forever to figure out how to add that switch. So I try it... the install it fails. So I change the switch to /passive to see what is going on. Ghost takes about a min to install. While it installs, other addons will start there install which makes nortons fail. While trying the addon by itself, Windows will not wait for the program to finish. So my next step is autoit. I warn you Im a real noobie with this program. I figure a couple of sucessful script install jobs and should give me a good head start. This script was made using the setup.exe and letting autoit make the script for me. Now I kinda understand some of it. Just not sure what needs to be changed to fix the install problem. Here it is. I guessed and use the winwaits option. #region - setup install script - (Automated with WinWait functions) Opt('TrayIconDebug', 1) Opt('WinDetectHiddenText', 1) Opt('WinTitleMatchMode', 4) ; Installer. $executable = 'setup.exe' ; Show progess. $splash = 0 ; Default catagory folder in startmenu. $group = '' ; New catagory to move the default folder into. $catagory = '' ; Installation folder in Program Files. $directory = '' ; Run the installer. $pid = _Install() If WinWait('', '', 60) Then ControlClick('', '', '') WinWait('', '') ControlClick('', '', '') WinWait('', '') ControlClick('', '', '') WinWait('', '') ControlClick('', '', '') WinWait('', '') ControlClick('', '', '') Else _Abort() EndIf ProcessWaitClose($pid) ; Remove shortcuts. If _MainShortcut('?.lnk') Then ; Relative to shortcut directories ; Remove Startmenu shortcuts FileDelete('?.lnk') FileDelete('?.lnk') FileDelete('?.lnk') FileDelete('?.lnk') FileDelete('?.lnk') ; Remove other shortcuts _Desktop('?.lnk') _QuickLaunch('?.lnk') EndIf #endregion Exit

    Have you tried to a reinstall of nlite??
  12. Need help with autoit script.

    Tried to get some help in the autoit forms. Um no luck there. So I thought I would try here . I have a install I am doing. I got the silent install done. I need a script to help with the install. Problem is while trying to slipstream this norton ghost 2003, It starts the install but its like I need to stall the installation for a short time to give nortons time to install. I am new to autoit script. I am just now learning it. The first install I tried without script failed. Its like I need to stall the program to give it time to install. Without the script it starts to install, but the next addon starts to install at the same time and nortons fails. I used automatated script maker for the setup file. I just need to figure out what to change and how to change it. First question. What is the diffrence between "use winexists in a loop" and "use winwaits in sequence" ? I guessed and picked "use winwaits in sequence" Second queston, What do I need to change to get the install to wait a short time to give nortons time to install.?? Here is my script. #region - setup install script - (Automated with WinWait functions) Opt('TrayIconDebug', 1) Opt('WinDetectHiddenText', 1) Opt('WinTitleMatchMode', 4) ; Installer. $executable = 'setup.exe' ; Show progess. $splash = 0 ; Default catagory folder in startmenu. $group = '' ; New catagory to move the default folder into. $catagory = '' ; Installation folder in Program Files. $directory = '' ; Run the installer. $pid = _Install() If WinWait('', '', 60) Then ControlClick('', '', '') WinWait('', '') ControlClick('', '', '') WinWait('', '') ControlClick('', '', '') WinWait('', '') ControlClick('', '', '') WinWait('', '') ControlClick('', '', '') Else _Abort() EndIf ProcessWaitClose($pid) ; Remove shortcuts.

  13. Why am I being asked for the product key?

    Try it again. Take your time and read everything. It could very well be you forgot to check a box or put in the serail in right. Double check your work. If you still have no luck, give a shout back.
  14. First shot at nlite

    Be real careful with this. Try it in virtual machine first. You could remove something you may want or need later. Just take your time. It takes time to learn it. Once you do it forsure makes future installs tons easier. I have my fresh install xp with programs and updates and tweaked and ready to use down to just under a hour and a half. I really recomend to get sp3 into it first. Then Tweak it the way you want. Once all that is done, Burn it to cd so you will have for future uses. I myself have xp down to just a shade over 300 mb. Like 312mb. Works fine, Updates great, and everything works as it should. Hopefully that will give you a number to shoot for. Nlite itself when tweaking will help you remove some stuff, and tell you not to remove other stuff. I forsure would leave the service tab tweaks alone.
  15. add to desktop?

    With the folder I use to make my nlite setup. The i386 one. Is there a way or a place to put a folder that has a portable program I would like to have on my desktop when I restore xp with my nlite disk? So right after I do a fresh install that portable program is on my desktop?
