  1. Hi: I am currently running Windows 7 Ultimate x64. I downloaded and created the Windows 10 Pro iso and ran it. It keeps coming back with an incompatible program issue telling me to uninstall Norton Ghost 9. I do not have Norton Ghost 9 installed - I removed that a long time ago. I downloaded the Norton Removal Tool that removes all Symantec products, and even went in to the registry to delete any references to Norton Ghost 9 there. I ran the upgrade installer again with the same error results. The autorun.inf file contains the setting open=Sources\SetupError.exe x64 Is there another switch setting to run this setuperror.exe program or the normal setup.exe file I see in the Sources directory that will ignore program compatibility checks so I can get the free upgrade to Windows 10 working? Much thanks in advance.
  2. Hi: My 7 year old HP finally bit the dust, and I wad given a new custom system. Now I am trying to get used to whee everything goes (I was using X befoe). I just reloaded MS Frontpage 2003, and I figured out how to have all of the menus display fully, but I need to figure out how to change the interface color from the default blue to something else. Can anyone assist me with this? I am not sure if this post goes in this area or not. Much thanks, Hag
  3. Hi: Kelsenellenelvian was so very gracious in helping me upgrade my Hp Win7 ultimate s86 and x64 discs to include sp1, and many updates. He is not able to assist me at this point so I am asking for assistance from anyone. I don't know if you use nlite or rvmi for slipstreaming win7 or another utility. Because of my blindness I need some assistance. 1. I also would like to know if there is a way to update the discs he created for me, because I do not any longer have my originals. I do have my serial number. 1. I need to be able to include .net 1.1 through 4.5 Kel had just .net 4.5 added. 1. I also wanted to have my serial number slipstreamed into the install because the screen resolution get so small that my aide cannot really read it to insert my serian number when asked. 2. I need the options in the partition selection area of the installer to have all options enabled (format, delete, etc.). Question: After installing win7 ultimate (HP) x86, my aide noticed that the Document and Setings folder had an exclamation point next to it, and it was not accessible. I did have administrator rights, and because I was an xp pro user was also wondering if this directory was not needed anymore, and left thre. I needed to get to the area to replace the new favorites folder (IE10) with my saved favorites folder from xp pro IE8. I replaced my image of xp pro on my system until I can resolve a few of these items. If anyone can assist me, I would be very appreciative. Thanks, hag672
  4. Hi: I am using Dreamweaver CS6 to create a website. I have a membership application in Adobe PDF format. In frontpage 2003, , in preview in browser, the file will download correctly. In Dreamweaver, in preview in browser, the file opens in Acrobat instead of downloading. Here is the code that I am using: <a href="MLCmemberApp.pdf" title="click here to download Membership Application in PDF format"><u><font color="#0000FF" size="3" face="Verdana">DOWNLOAD</font></u></a></h5> Is there something I am doing wrong in Dreamweaver? Much thanks in advance, Hag672
  5. Hi: I am running xp pro (32-bit) I have had problems with windows properly shutting down.. It just seems to hang with the "Windows is shutting down" message. I created a shortcut to shutdown windows which includes the following parameters: C:\WINDOWS\SYSTEM32\KILLAPPS.EXE C:\WINDOWS\SYSTEM32.SHUTDOWN.EXE -r -f -t 2 I also manually closed all programs that had processes in the system tray. Is there a program or utility that will kill all active processes, and then use the shutdown.exe parameters as above so windows xp will shutdown normally? Much Thanks
  6. I just followed these exact steps and got the correct result which is the old Windows 95 appearance with white text on dark blue background, this does appear correctly when right-click on the desktop (*and* in the flyout submenu with 'New'). We should full stop right here because getting something other than white on blue is a key symptom of something that needs to be fixed. Tinkering with Advanced Appearance will only mask it. Ideas ... [1] Accessibility feature or add-in of some kind? [2] 3rd party Theme Manager? [3] Some crazy policy setting or TweakUI adjustment? (Come to think of it, if you have TweakUI running and it has the 'persistent' startup thing where it loads on every boot, you could try to disable this and see if the Classic returns to normal. Just an idea). [4] Any chance that you overwrote the official Luna theme with another? Certainly this could cause something like this because I believe that 'Classic' is contained within Luna (luna.msstyles ... size=4,190,352 ... date=2008-04-13) Yes, Selected Items is the correct object to change colors for the menus, including the desktop context (right-click) popup. After you altered the Selected Items (NOTE: the upper font/size/color is for the background, the lower one is for the foreground), are you absolutely positive you clicked 'OK' to dismiss the Advanced Appearance dialog, *and* the clicked 'APPLY' in the still open Display Properties parent window, and then finally 'OK' to dismiss that window? Again, the problem should not have to be fixed this way, applying the default 'Classic' should have a known expected result here. NOTE: After this is fixed you may want to hunt around the WinXP themes sites for a custom VisualStyle that caters to your particular eyesight. I expect there are many special hi-contrast Accessibility versions around. Also note that this will require you to patch the UxTheme.dll first. EDIT: shuffled the quote around and fixed up the reply. Yes, I do have ToggleKeys set to ON in the Assessability options. I went into Display Properties, and reset the Windows color scheme to Windows Classic, and applied the change. I then changed the desktop color back to a plain black background. That seems to have done the trick!!! Much Thanks
  7. Thanks, This would not be practical for me to do because I have an extreme visual impairment. I would never play with the registry myself
  8. Hi: I am using Windows XP Pro 32-bit. Under Display Properties > Appearance, I have windows configured for: Windows and Buttons - Windows Classic Style, Color Scheme: Windows Standard, Font Size: Large. I When I right-click on a blank space on the desktop the menu that contains: New, Properties, Refresh... appears with white on dark blue (normal for windows standard color scheme). If I select New, a menu appears containing: Text Document and more appears. for some reason THAT menu appears with black letters on dark blue (very hard to see). I would like to change this to the normal white on dark blue as in the other menus. I went into Display Properties > Appearance, and selected Advanced to see where I could change these colors. I tried: Menu, Selected Item, and others, but with no luck. How can I change the black on dark blue to the normal white on dark blue for all menu colors? Much thanks, hag672
  9. Hi: Being a blind computer user I might have missed something. I'm still running XP Pro with SP3. For some reason my right-click menu opeion of 'New Text Document' that would be associated with notepad disappeared. What can I do to add this item back to the right-click menu once again? Much thanks, hag672
  10. Hi: I finally got a new integration of Windows XP Pro SP3 working. The problem I am having is that if I go into My Computer its view is in icon mode. If I look at another window it is in tile mode. Is there any way I can set all window views to either tile or icon mode. If someone can supply a .reg file or some other tweak I would greatly appreciate it. Much thanks, hag672
  11. Hi: I modified the OnePiece AIP 4.6.1 to REM out the netfx11 through 4 installs. I then used nlite to integrate the onepiece. I then used RVMI to use Kel's entries_removal.ini to remove unwanted components becaue they were not being removed in the [components] section of winnt.sif. I then used nlite for the rest in a single stage. Being blind and multiply disabled is hard enough wih attempting to use rvmi or nlite. I attempted to have my aide assist me in using HFSLIP, but she got real angry with me and told me if she had to do any more of this she would quit. I could never let that happen. I used first virtual pc 2007, and then vmware 7.1.4 for testing the builds. net 1.1 instals and net 2.0sp2, net3, net35sp1 all fail with an error requesting .net 2.0a. .net 40 installed fine. I need the net frameworks to be installed into the control panel add/remove section not the windows components add/remove. Because I use a mouthstick to work, it is quite hard to get a normal integration put together. this is why I am asking for assistance. My integration slipstreamed should only have OnePiece 4.6.1 WITHOUT the .net frameworks, the unwanted components removed, net frameworks integrated as SVCPACKs, MS VC++ runtimes 2005, 2008, 2010, jre6u25, kel's cp;bonus pack 12.2, adobe flash 10.3 (I think) both activex and plugin, and shockwave players 11.5, and adobe reader x 10.01. Ths what had hav been trying to do a.ong with turning off all animation, translucen rectangle in menus, using classic xp and contrl panel, etc. I am running out of eam on attempting to get this working. EDIT: I solved the problem!!! 1. I modified the OnePiece 4.6.1 to not install any net frameworks 2. I integrated a onepiece net 1.1 - 4.0 addon that shows up in the normal Add/Remove, not the windows components Add/Remove 3. I ran tests with installing my special software and it worked. 4. I just installed the new integration on my system and all is well!!! I thank you for your thoughts, hag672
  12. Hi: I first integrated the onpiece post sp3 aio 4.6.1 (with the entries.ini modified to REM out the net framework installs. I then used RVMI to use Kel's entries_removal.ini to remove silverlight, windows desktop search, etc. I then ran nlite again and added each dotnetfx. entries.ini file in order from 11 through 4., added the unattended information, tweaks, and made the iso. I finally got the installers to appear and extract their files for .net 2.0 sp2 and 3.0 , and net 3.5 sp1, but all will not install. I now get an error code of 1603, and informed that Microsoft .Net Framework 2.0a is not installed. If I installed these frameworks from a cd after the windows installation was complete, they would install perfectly with no errors. ALL I want to do is have an addon to have .net framework 1.1 -4.0 installed and show up in Add/Remove of the Control Panel. I am geting so frustrated with this. I don't want to install the net frameworks as components in the Add/Remove Windows Components. I need to get this working so I can use my specialized software om my computer. I guess if I had vision it might be a bit easier, but being blind and multiply disabled sometimes is a real drag - ESPECIALLY NOW!! If here is anyone who can assist me with creating this addon or group of addons without errors I would greatly appreciate it. Much thanks, hag672
  13. Hi: I had a problem with the onepiece post SP3 AIO 4.61 in regards to the .net framework installation. I have some specialized software due to my disabilities that neded .net framework 1.1.4322 installed. Eventhough the onepiece had .net1.1 included I still had problems. I went into the onepiece and REMMed out the .net framework 1.1 and created a new integration with nlite. When I went to install .net 1.1.4322 it would not install because .net 2.0, 3.0 3.5, and 4 were installed. I went back to the onepiece and REMMed out all .net installations 1.1 through 4. I created a new integration from my clean source and included my own .net framework installers using and entries.ini file and SVCPACK. .net framework 1.1.4322 and .net framework 4.0 installed. NUTE: .net framework 1.1 instaled but with all dialog boxes and prompts showing even though I used the /q switch .net framework 2.0 SP2, 3.5 SP1 did NOT install. I have included all of my Entries.ini files for each .net framework installation for you to view. I was installing the .net frameworks in order from 1.1 to 4.0. Is this correct, or do I need to install them from .net framework 4.0 to 1.1? Can anyone PLEASE help me with this so I can FINALLY get my integration correct, and build a Windows XP Pro SP# installer that will work correctly? I went from using MS Virtual PC 2007 to VMWare Workstation 7.1.4 for my testing. Here are all 4 entries.ini files for each dotnetfx SVCPACK: ;entries_dotnetfx11.ini ;nLite integration information; [general] builddate=05/25/2010 description=Addon Microsoft .NET Framework 1.1 language=English title=Microsoft .NET Framework 1.1 version=1.1.4322.5473 website=http://www.microsoft.com Windows=XP [EditFile] I386\SVCPACK.INF,SetupHotfixesToRun,AddProgram [AddProgram] dotnetfx11.exe /q ;entries_dotnetfx20sp2.ini ;nlite Integration information [general] builddate=05/25/2011 description=Addon Microsoft .NET Framework 2.0 SP2 language=English title=Microsoft .NET Framework 2.0 SP2 version=2.2.30729.1 website=http://www.microsoft.com Windows=XP [EditFile] I386\SVCPACK.INF,SetupHotfixesToRun,AddProgram [AddProgram] dotnetfx20sp2.exe /q ;entries_dotnetfx35sp1.ini ; nLite integration information; [general] builddate=05/25/2011 description=Addon Microsoft .NET 3.5 SP1 language=English title=Microsoft .NET Framework 3.5 SP1 version=3.5.30729.1 website=http://www.microsoft.com Windows=XP [EditFile] I386\SVCPACK.INF,SetupHotfixesToRun,AddProgram [AddProgram] dotnetfx35sp1.exe /qb /norestart ;entries_dotnetfx40.ini ;nlite Integration information; [general] builddate=05/25/2011 description=Addon Microsoft .NET Framework 4.0 language=English title=Microsoft .NET Framework 4.0 version=4.0.30319.1 website=http://www.microsoft.com Windows=XP [EditFile] I386\SVCPACK.INF,SetupHotfixesToRun,AddProgram [AddProgram] dotnetfx40.exe /Q /norestart PLEASE, can anyone assist me with this???

  14. The onepiece that I have been using is 4.6.1. I mistakenly put 4.5.1 in the topic title. as for the components section of winnt.sif, it seems to be ignored by nlite. Kell gave me an entries_removal.ini file to remove some files, and I REMMed out all netfx files... ;netfx11,,7 .net 1.1.4322 installs so does .net40. .net20sp2 and .net35sp1 does not. Neither does Adobe Reader 10.0.1. much thanks :
  15. Sorry, it didn't work. I first did what you showed to rem out the netfx11. After building a new integration I found that .net wants to have no other version installed. I then built a new integration, this time remming out all .net11 through .net4 in the entries.ini file. After building a new integration I had now included .net11, .net20sp2, .net 35.sp1, and .net40. I created a SVCPACK folder for each, and an associated entries.ini file. .net1.1 and .net40 installed. .net2 and 3.5 did not install. Neither did Adobe Reader 10.01. Also when dotnetfx11 instaled it showed all dialogs and needed user input even with the /q switch. Here are all 4 entries.ini files for each dotnetfx SVCPACK: ;entries_dotnetfx11.ini ;This section contains version information to nLite & RVM_Integrator; [general] builddate=05/25/2010 description=Addon Microsoft .NET Framework 1.1 language=English title=Microsoft .NET Framework 1.1 version=1.1.4322.5473 website=http://www.microsoft.com Windows=XP [EditFile] I386\SVCPACK.INF,SetupHotfixesToRun,AddProgram [AddProgram] dotnetfx11.exe /q ;entries_dotnetfx20sp2.ini ;This section contains version info for RyanVM Integrator & nLite [general] builddate=05/25/2011 description=Addon Microsoft .NET Framework 2.0 SP2 language=English title=Microsoft .NET Framework 2.0 SP2 version=2.2.30729.1 website=http://www.microsoft.com Windows=XP [EditFile] I386\SVCPACK.INF,SetupHotfixesToRun,AddProgram [AddProgram] dotnetfx20sp2.exe /q ;entries_dotnetfx35sp1.ini ;This section contains version information to nLite & RVM_Integrator; builddate=05/25/2011 description=Addon Microsoft .NET 3.5 SP1 Framework 3.5 SP1 language=English title=Microsoft .NET Framework 3.5 SP1 version=3.5.30729.1 website=http://www.microsoft.com Windows=XP [EditFile] I386\SVCPACK.INF,SetupHotfixesToRun,AddProgram [AddProgram] dotnetfx35sp1.exe /qb /norestart ;entries_dotnetfx40 ;This section contains version info for RyanVM Integrator & nLite [general] builddate=05/25/2011 description=Addon Microsoft .NET Framework 4.0 language=English title=Microsoft .NET Framework 4.0 version=4.0.30319.1 website=http://www.microsoft.com Windows=XP [EditFile] I386\SVCPACK.INF,SetupHotfixesToRun,AddProgram [AddProgram] dotnetfx40.exe /Q /norestart Much thanks for your idea hag672
