  1. Hi to all. I have a small question regarding IE and Firefox. We use Flash Player plug-in from Adobe to view Flash based content in IE and Firefox. But Adobe AIR and Adobe Shockwave Player are also plug-ins for IE and Firefox. What are the exact uses of both Adobe Air and Adobe Shockwave Player in relation to IE and Firefox. The installation of both Adobe AIR and Adobe Shockwave Player is necessary for smooth viewing of websites. Please let me know. Thanks.
  2. Hi to all. By using RT 7 Lite program i am able to customize my Win 7 installation according to my requirements. But I would like to remove Basic and High Contrast themes from Win 7 installation. But i am not able find those themes in RT 7 Lite tool. How it is possible to remove those themes from Win 7 installation? By default Win 7 installation includes MS Dot Net Framework v3.5. But recently MS release Dot Net Framework 4. Is Win 7 OS automatically upgrades to Dot Net 4 via Win 7 updates or we need to manually download the full setup file of Dot Net Framework 4 and install it? If we like to integrate it in Win 7 installation is it okay to remove MS Dot Net Framework v3.5 from W7 installation by using RT 7 Lite? Please let me know answers to these questions. Thanks.
  3. Hi to all. Just recently my brother got a MAC laptop. The installed OS in laptop is Mac OS X Snow Leopard. Till now i am not familiar with MAC OS installation and usage. Of-course i searched Google and i got some information. But i have a few questions. 1. Now i am trying to install Mac OS X again. I searched in Apple website for any available updates for Mac OS X Snow Leopard. I saw there is an important update available. But it is available in two variants. One is Mac OS X v10.6.6 Update (Size 143.59 MB) and the other is Mac OS X v10.6.6 Update Combo (Siz is 1.06 GB) I go through detailed description about these two updates. But i am not able to find exact difference between them. Both contains incremental updates and nearly same in description. But why one in above 1 GB in size and one is 143 MB. Which one i need to download? 2. Is there a way to integrate this update to Mac OS X Snow Leopard installation and create a Mac OS X installation DVD which contains both OS and update. Just like Win 7 with SP1. If so, how the method would be? 3. Is there a tool available to customize the installation of Mac OS X Snow Leopard. Just like RT 7 Lite, which is available to customize Win 7 installation image. Please let me know answers for the above mentioned questions if possible. I already searched in Google but i am not able to find proper information. Thanks.
  4. Hi to all. I have Visual Studio Team System 2008 Team Suite evaluation DVD ISO image and Visual Studio 2008 SP1 ISO image with me. I came to know that, due to some reasons slip-streaming of VS 2008 and VS 2008 SP1 is difficult. So, i would like to automate the installation of Visual Studio 2008 and VS 2008 SP1 at same time. For this i need to write a batch file. I would like to have that batch file. Please any one if possible, just post here the batch file according to below mentioned specifications. To automate the installation of VS 2008 and VS 2008 SP1, i need to put VS 2008 installation setup files and VS 2008 SP1 in same DVD ISO image. But this is not possible due to their size. These two products setup files reach above 4.7 GB limit. So to overcome this, i need to copy contents of SP1 ISO to a folder named VS2008SP1 and later, this folder is converted to zip format. this zip file should be in VS 2008 DVD or VS 2008 ISO image. The installation should start from VS 2008 setup file. After completion of VS 2008 installation The VS 2008 setup file should be closed. Now the VS 2008 SP1 zip file extraction should start and this uncompressed folder should be placed in any of drives which is having sufficient storage space. Now the installation should start from SP1 setup file. After completion of installation, the extracted folder should be deleted. Please any one post here the batch file for above said process. Thanks

  9. Visual Studio Service Packs Slipstream (How To)

    Hi. The info which i have to slip-stream SP1 to VS2008 is below. But in that nothing is mentioned about, is this applicable to VS 2008 Team suite or not. For VS2005 SP1 Microsoft mentioned the SP1 of VS2005 is applicable to Team suite, Professional and other editons. But in for VS2008 SP1 they didn't said any thing as said to VS2005 SP1. The steps are below. Step 1 msiexec.exe /a E:\vs_setup.msi TARGETDIR=F:\VS2k8 /L*vx F:\VS2k8\vsinstall.log Note: Copy WcfTestClient.chm file from x:\Program Files\Microsoft Visual Studio 9.0\Common7\1033 folder to the x:\Program Files\Microsoft Visual Studio 9.0\Common7\IDE folder before running step 2. (Where x is the letter of your optical media or virtual media drive.) Step 2 VS90sp1-KB945140-ENU.exe /extract F:\VS2k8SP1\Extracted Step 3 msiexec.exe /a F:\VS2k8\vs_setup.msi /p F:\VS2k8SP1\Extracted\VS90sp1-KB945140-X86-ENU.msp /L*vx F:\VS2k8\patch.log Step 4 xcopy E: /h /i /r /s /exclude:exclude.txt Once completed the slipstreamed installation folder is 4,490,358,390 bytes and contains 14,966 files with 1,543 folders. After slip-stream i checked the file WcfTestClient.chm. It is in two places as said above. I didn't understand why we need to copy this file. The below method may be possible. (I don't know exactly). If installation possible in attended mode, then only the below said method works. 1. Copy the contents of VS2008 Team Suite DVD to a folder named VS2008. Copy the extracted SP1 folder to VS2008 directory. Here we need to write the install.bat file to install VS2008 in attended mode, and after installation of VS2008 it should start installation of VS2008 SP1. After that cleanup process should be done by cleanup.bat file. We may require .reg file also to register VS2008 (I think so). But some issues are there. The VS2008 Team Suite DVD size is 3.82 GB and VS2008 SP1 size is around 850 MB. So the combined high volume is not fit into a DVD5 i.e., single layer DVD. So in order to put this into single layer DVD me need to make the VS2008 SP1 folder as self-extracting compressed file and put it in VS2008 folder. The extraction should done in any temporory folder in target system while installing VS2008, to reduce total installation time or it may start extracting, after installation of VS2008 TS. After completion of VS2008 installation, the SP1 should start and it should update the file accordingly. Here we are making VS2008 Team suite installaiton in attended mode. So the SP1 installation should update the components which are installed from VS2008 TS. After completion of installation of SP1 the cleanup.bat should clean the installation files of SP1. I think so we need to have one registry file also. Hi consider the above said points. If possible let me know. Thanks.
  10. Visual Studio Service Packs Slipstream (How To)

    Hi. I studied in above threads. The info in link 2 seems to be nice. But i have some questions. I am posting all those here. Plz let me know. I have Visual studio 6.0 Enterprise Edition CD. The VS 6.0 EE CD started automatically after inserting it in CD drive. It is saying that "The Installation Wizard must update your Microsoft Virtual Machine for Java in order to proceed. The system will reboot after the update is complete and the Installation Wizard will automatically continue after rebooting." In below line with active tickmark in a box "Update Microsoft Virutal Machine for Java" is there. I have Win XP Pro x86 with SP3. I think Microsoft abandoned the VM support for Java. Then is this necessary? If we cancel this is this affet the functionality of VS 6.0 EE after installaiton. I did not understand the below said two lines form http://support.microsoft.com/?id=195828 link. 1. Share out the folder that contains the disk images. 2. On the client computer, connect to that share, and then run the following command: path of the share\VS6CD1\SMSINST.EXE /k your CD Key The VS 6.0 EE CD which i have, is not asking for serial key while installing. A flle named "KEY.DAT" is there in root directory of VS 6.0 EE. I don't know about that key file. In link http://www.msfn.org/board/visual-studio-6-....html#entry1863 In post 9 "pthomas" said that echo Installing Sun Java ::start /wait j2re-1_4_2_05-windows-i586-p.exe /s /v"/qb ADDLOCAL=jrecore IEXPLORER=1" :: To hide install stuff, use /qn. n for nothing, b for basic UI i.e., he is first installing JRE first then VS 6.0. So from this we may understand that, if we have JRE already installed in our system we are not required to install VM for java. I have JRE in my PC. All these ok. But if i made silent installation with my VS 6.0 EE CD, how can i stop installing "Update Microsoft Virutal Machine for Java". If i can not stop this installation, how can i stop rebooting. In the Microsoft link http://support.microsoft.com/?id=195828 link they did not mentioned it. Plz let me know this. I understood the remaining install.bat file. But i would like to install VS 6.0 processor pack along with these SP5 and SP6. i.e., after installation of SP5 and SP6. So please let me know how to change install.bat file and cleanup.bat file. One question here. Normally we put install.dat file in root directory of VS 6.0 EE CD. In that root directory we may have autorun.inf, so system does not get confused by seeing these two files. So we already have install.bat file, then autorun.inf file is necessary? How execution starts from install.bat file only. My autorun.inf file looks like below. [autorun] OPEN=SETUP.EXE ICON=SETUP.EXE,0 Please give me answers to all my questions if possible. Please don't think otherwise with my bad written English language. Thank you
  11. Visual Studio 6

    [quote name='pthomas' post='188501' date='Sep 13 2004, 09:31 AM']This is for the Enterprise edition. I'd expect it to work fro Pro also unless you're missing the acmboot file. Also, both service packs are needed if you want all features of VS to be up to SP6. Apparently when MS got to SP6 they didn;t coonsider it a huge service release and quit on the whole "each service pack contains the fixes of all the ones below it", which is a bunch of crap! You can verify this based on filesize and also on the MS site whitepaper that mentions what all SP6 includes and what it does not. Paul[/quote] Hi pthomas let me know the download link for SP5 for Visual Studio 6.0 Thanks
  12. Visual Studio Service Packs Slipstream (How To)

    Thnaks. Let me know slipstreaming of SP6 for Visual Studio 6.0 Enterprise Edition.
  13. Hi to all. 1. I have visual studio Team 2008 Team suite evaluation edition. So How can i slipstream Visual Studio 2008 SP1 for this edition. I tired this once. I came to know about this process by reading some posts in internet. But it is not properly done. After the completion of process i checked the folder, but i didn't find "autorun.inf" and installation file of visual studio. Only i saw corresponding msi file. Is this SP1 is applicable for Team suite or it is only applicable for Professional, Standard and Express editions of Visual Studio 2008?. 2. How can i slipstream SP6 for Visual Studio 6.0 Enterprise Edition. Plz let me know the detailed procedure for slip-streaming of above said two issues. Thanks to all.

  15. Windows XP activation question

    Hi to all. Is windows XP (all editions of x86 and x64) does not require any activation like windows Vista and Windows Server 2008 (all editions of x86 and x64). Some where in magazine i read that, when Microsoft released XP first in 2001, they restricted the functionality of Win XP only to 30 days before activation. After 30 days if any one have to use XP, they compulsory activate their XP through Phone or internet. But later released versions of XP (without integration of any SP, in 2003 and 2004) they already activated XP editions and they released to public. Now what we are using XP editons are activated in this manner only. Is this true. I would like to know detailed information about this. Thanks.
