  1. Hi all, I'm also having this error. In my case, although I get the error, the password is actually set =\. Any way to fix it? It happens to all my accounts =(. Thanks.
  2. I've yet to try that, but it should . I trust your tweak, I just don't understand why VMWare and VPC are like this .
  3. I've rebooted already? =\ I thought I stated it. Thanks though . Edit: I'm running it on VMware, and I've rebooted the virtual machine a lot of times already. Must I reboot my actual system? It doesn't make sense to me . I can't test it out now, downloading some anime .
  4. Hiya, thanks for those links, but they don't state any thing related to my problem, or did I miss it? By the way, interesting articles, especially the 2nd one .
  5. Hiya, I've tried VMWare. My page file is stuck at 383MB now =\. the attached screenshot will give a better idea of my problem. Thanks in advance. Notice the pagefile is set at 768-768MB, but the allocated is 383MB . I've restarted many times already.
  6. Yea it's the same user. I was just wondering why ^_^. Anyone? Thanks by the way, I'll check out shortcut.exe ^^.
  7. Yup my virtual hard disk has 3GB, and it's NTFS . Alright I'll give VMWare a try. Thanks man .
  8. Ah ok, thanks. Got to read up on RunOnceEX now .
  9. Hiya, Just wondering, is there anyway I can make Windows run another batch file right after I restart my computer? (After [GuiRunOnce], restart, and run another batch file.] Thanks in advance.
  10. Hi, I used the below entry to enable quick launch in an unattended installation, and I noticed that when installing from [GuiRunOnce] Firefox, Thunderbird, and Winamp (not silent, with dialogs ), their icons don't get added to the quick launch bar. By default, these programs create quicklaunch icons when installing them normally.

  11. WwTIPPYwW: Yep, that's what I did. However, the pagefile is always stuck at 191MB on my virtual PC. Does it work for you? prathapml: Thanks I'll check that out . Edit: prathapml, yours seems very effective . I'm trying it on my VPC in an hour or so . Edit: Bah, it's still stuck at 191MB. The initial size shows 768MB, and the maximum size shows 768MB. However, the "Currently Allocated" shows 191MB. Restarting it didn't work. Is this a VPC 2004 bug?
  12. Hey, I've been wondering, what is the /SP- switch for? I've managed to make it completely silent, however, it doesn't automatically install the Real and Quicktime plugins for my firefox browser, probably cause it'll require a dialog. I don't mind having a dialog for just a short while, so which is the switch that will allow dialogs when needed? Edit: Thanks by the way . Helped a lot! Edit: Pardon my laziness, I just found out what /SP is for. /SP- Disables the This will install... Do you wish to continue? prompt at the beginning of Setup. Source:
  13. Hiya, if you take a look at [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\Session Manager\Memory Management] You'll see a key "PagingFiles", which I think holds the information for the page file, export it and you should be done. However, I've tried it on a Virtual PC installation, but it's always locked at 191MB, it seems there's some problem with Page Files in a VPC, cause it's still stuck at 191MB even when I install without that specific registry setting. Anyway, mine's set to C:\pagefile.sys, with a fixed size of 768MB. [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\Session Manager\Memory Management] "PagingFiles"=hex(7):43,00,3a,00,5c,00,70,00,61,00,67,00,65,00,66,00,69,00,6c,\ 00,65,00,2e,00,73,00,79,00,73,00,20,00,37,00,36,00,38,00,20,00,37,00,36,00,\ 38,00,00,00,00,00
