  1. will there be any update given that the base 7-Zip program has now been updated to v4.62?
  2. @DarkShadows in answer to your question 1 - yes, i have just followed a similar approach with the exact same result, even down to the size of the loaded components. i say similar because, i used the TC method to create 1.1, 2.0 SP1, 3.0 SP1 and 3.5 executables, loaded them into a new build in the very order you have used here. I then executed a new install and once done, executed the 3.5 SP1 executable to update the whole the framework to arrive at a 1.1, 2.0 SP2, 3.0 SP2 and 3.5 SP1 state. I then used the TC method to create new executables and replaced my original executables with the new ones and repeated the original sequence - it seems to have worked. whether it really worked, is beyond my knowledge to really confirm. in answer to your question 2 - again, beyond my pay grade to comment.
  3. Nice!, I just tried the latest edition with default settings and it worked first time, totally clean. Am looking forward to the .NET 3.5 SP1 version. Many thx
  4. I seem to be missing something. I currently use WMP11 Slipstreamer to integrate WMP11 and WMP11 hotfixes into Win XP SP3 and then, separately use nLite to strip out a bunch of stuff thus leaving me with a slimmer Win XP SP3 source. I would like to do this all in 1 step. I have hunted around this forum seeking enlightenment and frankly I must be missing something obvious - I get that the WMP11 Slipstreamer must be installed and I get that the WMP11 installer must be inserted as a hotfix within the hotfix section of nLite but I don't understand how to configure nLite such that it uses the same WMP11 Slipstreamer parameters that I use when I run it as a distinct step (ie, "tweaked" vs "vanilla" output type, etc). would anyone shed some light on this for me? thx
  5. at the risk of offering another perspective (or simply piling on!), I integrate KB951376 as an RyanVM Addon and was plagued by this very problem (I nLite to reduce after I have bolt on all my Addons). As it turns out, I exclude anything Bluetooth related as my desktop machine does not support Bluetooth. In doing so, nLite removes "bthport.sys" AND the txtsetup.sif entry (the very one identified by 5eraph above). By simply listing "bthport.sys" in the Keepfiles section of nLite, I preserve both the file and txtsetup.sif entry (so no manual screwing around with txtsetup.sif after I'm done). Anyhow, anything to avoid manual intervention is a win for me.
  6. actually, i just unpacked and searched through the inf included in your UberPack and the it contains this random number, and looks defined.
  7. forgive me, i know barely enough to be dangerous. the suggestions i made were built on top of the files that Cygnus and others have contributed towards which referenced the same number. from reviewing the file authored by Cygnus and others, it looks like the number i used was defined in an earlier registry entry. in any case it has worked consistently.
  8. In case anyone is interested, i have been tinkering with this Recycle Bin on the Desktop for a while as I wasn't satisfied with implementing the attached hack only to have to then still select it after windows booted up. here is what i discovered. i am including because i haven't found it anywhere else (i suspect I am not the first to discover this but maybe someone who will follow will be interested) ; ### will reveal whatever is set to OEMLink in Start Menu at logon (in this case Recycle Bin) even if default behavior hides it [HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\Advanced] "Start_ShowOEMLink"=dword:00000001 ; ### will remove Recycle Bin from desktop at logon even if default behavior places Recycle Bin on desktop [HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\HideDesktopIcons\NewStartPanel] "{645FF040-5081-101B-9F08-00AA002F954E}"=dword:00000001 ; ### will set the default behavior of the OEMLink in Start Menu to VISIBLE ; ### in the absence of this setting the default behavior of the OEMLink in Start Menu is set to VISIBLE so this setting should really be unnecessary [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\Advanced] "Start_ShowOEMLink"=dword:00000001 ; ### will set the default behavior of the Recycle Bin on the desktop to HIDDEN ; ### in the absence of this setting the default behavior of the Recycle Bin on the desktop is set to VISIBLE [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\HideDesktopIcons\NewStartPanel] "{645FF040-5081-101B-9F08-00AA002F954E}"=dword:00000001
  9. Was this problem completely resolved? i have just come across the very same problem and am trying to figure out what is causing it. I use RyanVM to integrate hotfixes (RVM2.1.11, then RUP2.1.11.13), DX9c (Nov07), IE7, WS57. Then I use Boogy to integrate WMP11. Now at this point I have a pretty fat install and it works. Next I use nLite v1.4 to trim it down and I blue screen during install with this error. any thoughts?
  10. Shark007, sorry to be pain but I have the same question for VCPv457. I tried "-ai", didn't work. Whatever switch I try brings up an InstallShield command line parameters window with reasonable suggestions - none work. Any additional thoughts / suggestions? thx,
  11. Shark007, I have just tried to do a silent install of your QT Lite for VCP 1.09 and am having trouble figuring out the exact key sequence for an unattended install. I have tried /s /v"/qn" and all manner of combinations without success (I continue to come to a halt at the Windows Installer window - ironically, the one with the legend explaining all the msi key options). I have no trouble unpacking the executable that you have prepared and executing the msi like every other msi but that's not a clean solution. Have you any suggestions? Thx
  12. This method seems to work well enough for me. 1) So through RunOnceEx.cmd, i load the following cmd REG ADD %KEY%\990 /VE /D "Tuning User Environments" /f REG ADD %KEY%\990 /V 1 /D "RunHiddenConsole /w \"H:\temp\User Configuration\User Configuration at SU.cmd\"" /f 2) this command loads the default user with :: cmdow @ /HID @echo off SET HKUC=HKEY_USERS\Custom\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\RunOnce :: Load HKU with Default User profile REG LOAD HKEY_USERS\Custom "%HomeDrive%\Documents and Settings\Default User\NTUSER.dat" REG ADD "%HKUC%" /v "pg_00" /t REG_EXPAND_SZ /d "\"H:\temp\User Configuration\User Configuration at SU.exe\"" /f :: UnLoad HKU of Default User profile REG UNLOAD HKU\Custom EXIT 3) the User Configuration at SU is a compiled AU3 script that uses a case statement to customize for username ; ---------------------------------------------------------------------------- ; AutoIt Version: 3.1.1 ; Language: English ; Platform: Win9x/NT ; Author: ; ; Script Function: ; Configures Office per User at User Startup ; ; ---------------------------------------------------------------------------- HotKeySet("^!x", "MyExit") ; Script Start - Add your code below here ; ---------------------------------------------------------------------------- ; Configure Office per User at User Startup ; Toggle Rate $i = 500 Sleep($i) Select Case @UserName = "Administrator" ; Do Nothing Case @UserName = "User1" SplashTextOn("Active Processes", "office-User2", 200, 100, 0, 150, 4, "", 9) Sleep(1000) SplashOff() RunWait(@ScriptDir & "\office-User2\Config & Files Placement.exe") Sleep($i) Case @UserName = "User2" SplashTextOn("Active Processes", "office-User2", 200, 100, 0, 150, 4, "", 9) Sleep(1000) SplashOff() RunWait(@ScriptDir & "\office-User2\Config & Files Placement.exe") Sleep($i) Case @UserName = "User3" SplashTextOn("Active Processes", "office-User3", 200, 100, 0, 150, 4, "", 9) Sleep(1000) SplashOff() RunWait(@ScriptDir & "\office-User3\Config & Files Placement.exe") Sleep($i) Case @UserName = "User4" SplashTextOn("Active Processes", "office-User4", 200, 100, 0, 150, 4, "", 9) Sleep(1000) SplashOff() RunWait(@ScriptDir & "\office-User4\Config & Files Placement.exe") Sleep($i) Case Else ; Do Nothing EndSelect ;Sleep($i) ; ---------------------------------------------------------------------------- ; Place functions here ; ---------------------------------------------------------------------------- Func MyExit() Exit EndFunc ; ----------------------------------------------------------------------------
  13. Anyone know how to create a silent installer after capturing the files?
  14. Anybody? Windows Update client has been updated to v7.0.6000.381. the last redistributable that was linked here connects to v7.0.6000.374. Anyone know the link to the newest version?
  15. just_laze, I have been tinkering with your approach (as your approach is by far and away the most straight forward). I would appear that I have succeeded without integrating KB929969. To be clear, I followed every step as you have described EXCEPT I chose not to integrate KB929969 at the all - I consistently get a successful installation and further, I do NOT get told by Windows Update to proceed and install the KB929969 hotfix. I have to conclude that it is not necessary. Can anyone else verify this? If true, your simple, straight forward approach gets simpler and straighter. thx,
